Summary: This month could bring good news to romance, fun, and children, although you may be a little stressed out about how much it’s all costing you. The end of the month turns your focus to your work and health, and it’s possible you even start a new job or health routine.
Extended Horoscope: The new moon that occurred last month may have swept a new love affair your way due to the meet-up of the Sun, Moon, and Jupiter all in Leo and your 5th house of love and fun. It’s also possible you began a creative project or hobby, learned of a pregnancy, or heard good news about your children.
On August 1st Mercury conjuncts Jupiter in this same sector, and the pair square Mars in your 8th house of shared money. While you could hear good news about a romance, hobby, or child, it appears that whatever comes up could prove costly. Luckily, on this same day, Venus in your home sector trines Saturn in your money house, so your family may lend you the funds you need. It’s also possible that you hear home loan news at this time or spend money on your home.
Then, on August 7th, your ruler, Mars, in this same money sector reaches out to Neptune in your closure and creativity house, suggesting that money could come from the sale of a product or project, or from a hidden source.
On August 8th, it’s the Sun’s turn to conjunct Mercury in your fun, love, and children sector, and the nice angle of Uranus in your own sign of Aries indicates that this could be a personal milestone for you! Unfortunately, the pair will also square Saturn in your money house on this day, once again suggesting your bank account could take a hit.
A long-term goal could culminate with the full moon in Aquarius on August 10th, and it seems it will result in mixed emotions. The lovely angle of Uranus and the North Node suggest that you make a commitment in love or business that will benefit you for a long time to come. Unfortunately Saturn will again be angry over in your 8th house of shared finances, indicating that money could be a point of contention between you and your partner.
Luckily, fun, romance, and creative projects will be blessed on August 17th, a gem of a day when the two most loving planets, Jupiter and Venus, meet up in Leo.
One day to watch out for is August 18th, when Neptune in your closure sector faces off against Mercury in your work and health house. It’s possible that you get sick at this time, or you could encounter difficulties on the job. It may be that a co-worker, assistant, or employee seems shadier than usual or tries to undermine your authority. You may even doubt your abilities at this time!
Another iffy day falls on August 25th, when 5 planets align in an explosive combination! Your ruler, Mars, will conjunct Saturn in your shared money sector, and the pair will reach out happily to Mercury in your work sector. It’s hard to know how the energy will swing at this time. Saturn is a tough-love planet, known to make things tougher in the area of life he visits. You may feel somber at this time, or learn about a big expense. At the same time, the nice angle of Mercury suggests you could hear good money news- and perhaps even get a bonus on the job. With Venus smooching Uranus in your sign on the same day, this could be a day to remember!
The problem is that over the next few days (August 26th and August 27th), Saturn and then your ruler, Mars, in your money house will square Venus in your fun, love, and children sector, suggesting that a romance, leisure activity, or child will cost you a pretty penny.
As if that weren’t enough planetary action, August 25th also sees a new moon in your work and health sector, indicating that changes may soon come to this area of life. You could get a new work assignment, co-worker, or office space, and it’s possible you get an entirely new job! It’s also possible you join a gym, start a diet, or begin a new health plan at this time. Neptune’s opposition to the moon indicates that there could be some unpleasantness involved, so be sure to keep your eyes wide open every step of the way.
The month ends on a positive note, as Venus in your fun and love house reaches out happily to the fated North Node in your partnership sector on August 28th. This is the perfect time for a romantic evening with your boo!
