Summary: This month could see some positive developments to your finances, although a romance, child, or leisure activity could prove costly. The end of the month turns your focus to errands, trips, and transportation, and you may even be presented with a contract of some kind.
Extended Horoscope: The new moon that occurred last month may have brought a new source of income your way due to the meet-up of the Sun, Moon (your ruler!), and Jupiter all in Leo and your money house!
On August 1st, Mercury conjuncts Jupiter in this same sector, and the pair square Mars in your 5th house of love, fun, and children. While it seems you may hear good news about a financial initiative, it appears you may have to turn around and spend that money on your children, your boo, or a leisure activity! Luckily, on this same day, Venus will trine Saturn in this same sector of romance and fun, suggesting that it will all be worth it.
Then, on August 7th, Mars in this sector reaches out to Neptune in your travel house, suggesting you could go on a romantic trip with your honey, or work on a project that requires vision and creativity.
On August 8th, it’s the Sun’s turn to conjunct Mercury in your income sector, and the nice angle of Uranus in your career house indicates that you may soon get a raise or learn of a promotion! Unfortunately, the pair will also square Saturn in your fun and love sector on this day, indicating that career obligations could get in the way of a leisure activity or romance.
A financial matter will culminate with the full moon in Aquarius on August 10th, and it could result in mixed emotions. The lovely angle of Uranus and the North Node suggest that you may get a bonus on the job, or that your spouse or a family member could come into some funds.
Unfortunately Saturn will again be angry over in your creativity and romance sector, suggesting that obligations with children could weigh you down, or that a child, hobby, or love affair could prove costly. Additionally, Mercury will oppose the moon from your income sector, indicating that there could be some confusion with money you earn and money you owe.
Luckily, finances will be blessed on August 17th, a gem of a day when the two most loving planets, Jupiter and Venus, meet up in your income sector, bringing good blessings to your bank account!
One day to watch out for is August 18th, when Neptune in your travel and higher thinking sector will face off against Mercury in your communication and transportation sector. Travel could be delayed at this time, and communicating with others may prove difficult. Be sure to read contracts carefully, as Neptune can conceal details.
Another iffy day falls on August 25th, when 5 planets align in an explosive combination! The good news is that Mars will conjunct Saturn in your romance and fun sector, and the pair will reach out happily to Mercury in your communication house. If you’re working on a creative writing or speaking project, or making a commitment in love, leisure, or towards a child, this is a lovely influence. With Venus in your income sector smooching Uranus in your career house on the same day, you may even have a big career win at this time!
The problem is that over the next few days (August 26th and August 27th), Saturn and then Mars in your fun, love, and children sector will square Venus in your income house, suggesting that expenses may quickly mount .
As if that weren’t enough planetary action, August 25th also sees a new moon in your communication sector, indicating that you may soon be presented with a contract, hear news about a sibling, or get a new vehicle. You may even begin a writing or communication project of some kind, or go on a short trip. Neptune’s opposition to the moon indicates some confusion and fuzziness however, so do make sure you know exactly what you’re getting into.
The month ends on a positive note, as Venus in your income house reaches out happily to the fated North Node in your housing and home sector on August 28th. A home loan could come through, or you could receive some money from your family or from the sale of a house. Nice!
