August is going to be an action-packed month full of release, reward and realization. We can thank Mercury for this as it goes retrograde in Virgo on August 12th, and the lunar eclipse on the 7th in Aquarius, and solar eclipse on the 21st in Leo. Not to mention, we also have Lion’s Gate on the 8th! So much transformation and awakening! Many are going to find their inner-voice, and many are going to embrace their inner-child.
What does August have in store for your Zodiac Sun Sign? Read below to find out!

August is a great month for you, Aries, in the terms of positive movement forward. This is especially true for certain projects or even drawn-out issues you had felt blocked on, will finally flow and be resolved. Keep your focus on the future, and don’t allow minor issues to distract you from realizing your vision.
The month might start off rather hectic, or there will be a moment much like the last straw breaking the camel’s back, and with this breakdown, comes your breakthrough. It’s natural for an Aries to burst out in flames when the moment calls for it, but just as quickly to smolder down once the release has been done. With this moment of chaos, comes breaking boundaries and speaking the brutal-truth of your needs and demands. It’s not that this outburst is going to solve everything, but with this release you will find the room for clarity and clear thinking to properly address the issues or blockages that need to be resolved.
After this breakthrough period, you won’t just notice your relationships start to flow in better ways, but also other aspects in your life, especially your career and the money you earn.

Taurus, a lot of this month is going to be a battle between what you know, and what your mind convinces you to feel. Always listen to your heart – no matter what you think your logic is saying.
The main concern for you this month is going to be in your relationships, and that is going to project out into other areas of your life as well. So, keep this in mind when you feel flustered and frustrated, or not good enough – think deeper into why these emotions are being triggered and what you can do to address it. You are going to be the one on-call, and needed by others. Be sure that you also remain a good balance between how much you give of yourself, and how much you give back to yourself.
All of this Leo and Virgo energy within the planets has got you feeling all over the place, but mostly extremely empathetic to the needs of those around you – be careful with becoming overwhelmed with emotions which may not entirely be your own, but those of your loved ones which are calling out to you.

Oh, Gemini, this has been a rather challenging year for you so far in terms of setting boundaries with others, and getting on the right track with your ambitions. While July seemed to be a bit more peaceful, it does seem that August is going to have you face reality with a few things that you have been avoiding, or just haven’t been able to wrap your head around - probably because you tend to overthink, and then overthink what you overthink even more…
Practicality, and logic, win over anything. Of course, are not exactly an emotional sign, but you do tend to think far too outside the box where the simple solution, or insight, needed becomes too far to reach.
You are going to be considering where you invest your time, and energy into this month – between your career and your friendships, there is going to be a lot of thought in terms of what brings value, and what takes too much from you. While you might feel stuck in your head a lot this month, when you do surface and regain your touch with reality, you make waves in the right directions, making August a month of positive breakthroughs and movement for you.

Cancer, you had to flip the bill last month as you felt burdened in taking care of those around you. While August may call the same sense in authority and leadership in you, it will be for a different cause – one that you will feel more inspired to do.
With receiving a lot of Court Cards for this month, it does seem that a lot of what happens is going to be influenced by others. You may be called to lead, and help those who are in need, as well as calling forth those who can assist you as well – this will be all be enjoyable, and with knowing the support that is there, the connections of those involved will be strengthened and taken to new heights.
Not only is stability in work a main concern for you this month, but so is the stability within your home, and relationships. You may come to realize a long-awaited goal and take that next step this month, towards something more serious, valuable, and rewarding.

First of all, Happy Birthday Leo! J Naturally, you would receive the Sun card for the month of August. This is your month of growth, discovery, and to shine your brightest as you empower your unique gifts and authenticity. Others flock towards you this month to soak up your warmth, and of course you are inviting and treat those you love with upmost generosity.
You are the Star of the show this month, Leo, and those who appreciate you and all you give, are going to express to you in ways you might not expect, because of how wonderful and helpful to your cause it is.
You might take on a teaching or student role this month, Leo, where others will come to you for information that you are well-known to possess. Likewise, you may dig deep for knowledge when studying about subjects which excite your higher thinking. Don’t hold back, but also, don’t overdo it and burn yourself out. Leo’s are known for their wisdom and expressing passionately what they are knowledgeable, but they do tend to overload themselves.
While you will be focusing on and helping others, a lot, this month, Leo, you also want to keep the balance with what you put into yourself too, and what others give you as well. So, make sure to relax, celebrate YOU as it is your birthday month.

August is going to take you on a wild ride, Virgo, and that is mostly because of Mercury going into Retrograde while in your sign. This is going to bring a lot of magic, but also a lot of upset when rediscovering truths after taking that second look at where you currently stand. You might have quite a few run ins with synchronicity this month, Virgo, so pay attention and take these signs as a means of knowing that everything is going to be okay.
The important thing to remember, is to have faith. While that is no easy feat for a Virgo, because you prefer to live off facts, but sometimes you have just hope, and believe in that small smidge of a chance that everything will be okay. Also, don’t forget you have friends in your corner who can inspire and uplift you when the World seems dark and lonely. Reach out, and don’t hide yourself away trying to take things on your own – sometimes it helps to talk to a friend when you feel overwhelmed.
Telling a Virgo not to overthink, is much like telling someone to stop being themselves. It’s in your nature to question everything, Virgo, but sometimes you have just let things be. Quiet your thoughts for a moment and listen to your soul – be mindful and present within your thoughts.

Libra, you had a rather rough month in July when it came to your heart, and it seems that this month might be a bit different, but just as taxing in other areas of your life. You’re going through a shift where you are seeing where the true balance and value in your life is, in a sense, you are also finding more of your independence within your relationships, and in the way you earn your money. You might have pushed away your desires or needs for the sake of others, and because you have done this for so long, the Universe is ripping away this false sense of identity you have adopted, so to let you realize your truth, and how to live up to that truth.
Don’t expect too much from others, this month, and count on yourself. You always feel so much better when in partnerships or group projects, but it seems the Universe wants you to be on your own this time around, so you may empower the partnerships and projects you will soon be immersed in.
You may have a heavy dose of anxiety this month as certain events come across as rather harsh, or your fears are realized – don’t just lie down and take it – stand up and speak up. No one is coming to save you, Libra, so you need to wake up your inner-warrior and handle it.
IV the Emperor
You are going to have to take charge this month, Scorpio. What else is new, right? There is a lot of headway being made within your relationships, but it does seem that there are more serious issues regarding your finances. You will have to manage these storms and put forth the action required in calming this storm. The good thing is, a lot of these issues you face this month will finally receive solutions that make way for long-term results.
Don’t be afraid to ask for advice or help, you often pride yourself in knowing more than others, but this time around you would benefit in being the student for a change and taking guidance you receive to heart. This may come from an elderly man, such as a fatherly or authortive type whom you have a lot of respect for.

Be mindful with where you invest your energy and emotional resources this month, Sagittarius. It seems that the theme with most other signs has been experiencing a full spectrum of good and bad within different areas of their lives, and the same goes for you as well.
You are going to have to be practical in some areas of your life, and in others you will need to be imaginative. Basically, it doesn’t seem that you are as supported in your environment as you had hoped, and so you are left to stand in your own corner. Don’t let this affect you in the sense that you don’t give your full heart or invest yourself fully into the areas that require you to. Basically, don’t be distracted by temporary emotions, or pulled off-course because others don’t see eye to eye with you.
Basically, Sagittarius, you need to be mindful with where you allow your attention to flow – focus on where you do have support, and build on your strengths. A lot of the progress you will make this month, is going to depend solely on your state of mind and where you invest your energy in.

Not all is lost, Capricorn. Even if things are not going your way, does not mean that they won’t soon. You may have to buckle down and admit defeat, or allow something to slip away. You must realize that something better is going to come from this, but first you have to endure the pain from loss first. You hate to fail, failure is death to you, but facing your fears promotes more strength, and higher awareness for your next go around.
Your perspective might be too focused on the negatives this month, but you will find that there is plenty to be thankful for as well. Even if it does feel that the odds are stacked against you, you will have support from others who truly care about your best interests.

Everyone knows Aquarius to be a social butterfly, and this month that label is going to prove correct. You work well with others this month, so make sure you stay up to date with social gatherings and jump right onto creative projects.
You might also build onto something this month that is going yield more success than you could have dreamed. You are insanely idealistic and innovative with the way your mind works in terms of unique ideas and inventions or creative pursuits that serve humanity, and this month you will get to use this wonderful talent of yours.
Just be sure that whatever you invest yourself into this month, Aquarius, that you stick with it!

Sometimes a cry for love or help is heard in the most defensive or negative ways. You might feel attacked, or that you are swarmed by others who don’t know how to express themselves and so they leave you feeling so out of place because they tell you one thing, but deep down, you intuitively feel another.
It seems that you have entered a bit of a difficult phase in certain areas of your life this month, Pisces. You are being challenged by others it seems, and you can’t quite understand why, or even how to go about it.
You are looking for answers, Pisces, and sadly you may get caught up with the drama in trying to obtain them. Try not to get overly attached, or too sensitive when the going gets though, instead, stand your ground and listen to your inner voice against all odds.
