Summary Aries Horoscope: An emphasis on love and friendship, with two major eclipses in these sectors. Mercury retrograde could see a work or health matter come up for review. Saturn direct in your travel zone could straighten out a vacation matter.
Extended Aries Horoscope: There’s sure to be lots of activity in your life this month, with two game changing eclipses, Mercury and Uranus going retrograde, and Saturn going direct!
The month begins with two major heavy hitting planets, Jupiter and Pluto, squaring one another on August 4th in your relationship and career sectors. You might have difficulties with a close partner, boss, authority figure, or job.
This aspect has occurred before- in late November 2016 and late March 2017– so think back to those times for clues as to themes that could emerge.
Then, the first eclipse will be a lunar eclipse on August 7th in your friendship and goals zone. Luckily, this eclipse will reach out happily to good luck Jupiter in your relationship house, as well as stable Saturn in your travel sector, suggesting that you could attend a fun event, hang with friends, or reach a long-term goal.
One thing to be watchful of, however, is the fact that energizer Mars (your ruler) will be zooming through your love and children zone, directly opposite this eclipse. It’s possible that you will be very busy with your children, or that a romantic partner will seem testier than usual.
Some good days to address romance and child-related needs are August 10th, 13th, 16th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 27th. Luckily, I don’t see any other negative squares or oppositions between planets in this house this month!
In fact, the solar eclipse on August 21st takes place in your love and children sector, and it is the most gorgeous eclipse! It will conjunct motivator Mars and the fated North Node, reach out happily to Jupiter and Uranus in your relationship and identity houses, and trine stable Saturn in your travel zone!
You may find romance at this time, or even learn of a pregnancy! It’s also possible you go on a romantic vacation with your boo.
There is reason to suggest that you make any moves earlier than the eclipse, however, as on August 13th Mercury goes retrograde, and I think we all know to stay away from Mercury retrograde by now!
This time, the retrograde will take place in your work and health sector, so you may need to review and revise a job or health matter. I would avoid making any major commitments “official” during this time or signing any contracts. You could find down the road that whatever you committed to is not what you thought it was.
I once accepted and started a job during Mercury retrograde that seemed like a very good step up for me at the time. While it was a coveted job with a good title, the job turned out to be a total nightmare! The company had no structure and no direction, and the environment was very shark eat shark. I learned my lesson!
Mercury also rules your communication sector, so it’s possible that a travel matter, sibling, car, or writing project will come up for review as well. Mercury goes direct on September 5th.
Switching gears, you’ll be pleased to hear that love planet Venus is gliding through your home sector this month, blessing home and family.
Venus will make loving aspects to Mercury, Neptune, and Pluto respectively on August 10th, 12th, and 15th, so these are wonderful days to address home and family needs or to redecorate.
Days I would avoid are August 17th and August 24th, when Venus will be angry with Jupiter and then Uranus in your relationship and identity houses.
Luckily, August 27th sees the Sun in your relationship house reach out happily to Saturn in your travel zone. Even better, on August 25th, Saturn goes direct in your travel zone, suggesting that a travel or educational matter will speed up or become easier.

An exciting aspect this month is the fact that Venus gliding her way through your communication sector of Gemini, blessing travel and siblings. Good days for these types of things are July 18th, 26th, and 30th.
