Summary: Good career news seems aplenty this month, although it could come at the expense of personal plans or relationships. Mid-month, a housing or family issue will come to a head, with mixed results.
Extended Horoscope: The new moon that occurred last month may have swept a new career opportunity into your life, and it’s possible you got a promotion, some press, or a prestigious new assignment!
On August 1st, Mercury conjuncts Jupiter in this same sector, and the pair square Mars in your own sign of Scorpio. While it seems you’ll hear good news about your job, there’s also some indication that this information affects personal plans or projects. Luckily, on this same day, Venus in your travel house will trine Saturn in your own sign, blessing any travel, education, or intellectual or spiritual pursuits.
Then, on August 7th, Mars in your sign reaches out to Neptune in your love and fun house, bestowing good energy on any romances, creative projects, and children or pregnancies.
On August 8th, it’s the Sun’s turn to conjunct Mercury in your career sector, and the nice angle of Uranus in your work sector indicates that you may now get a promotion or prestigious new assignment. Unfortunately, the pair will also square Saturn in your 1st house on this day, indicating that your personal life could suffer from whatever comes up.
It seems a housing or family matter will culminate with the full moon in Aquarius on August 10th, and it could result in mixed emotions. If you are relocating for work, the lovely angle of Uranus suggests that this could be a good opportunity. Similarly, the North Node’s pleasant position indicates that it’s time to let go of the past and move on.
Unfortunately Saturn will again be angry over in your sign of Scorpio, indicating that you may not be entirely happy about this turn of events. Scorpio is a fixed sign- one that does not take well to change- so sometimes even good changes feel hard. Additionally, Mercury will oppose the moon from your career sector, suggesting that professional needs will be at odds with housing or family ones.
Luckily, career matters will be lovely by 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 fun and love sector will face off against Mercury in your friendship and long-term goals house. It seems group obligations will interfere with personal desires or vice versa.
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 own sign of Scorpio, and the pair will reach out happily to Mercury in your friendship and goals sector. With Venus smooching Uranus on the same day, it appears an amazing career opportunity is headed your way!
The problem is that over the next few days (August 26th and August 27th), Saturn and then Mars in your sign will square Venus in your career house, so it seems that personal plans will be pitted against professional needs or vice versa. It’s also possible that this career opportunity comes with a lot of responsibility, which you may or may not want.
As if that weren’t enough planetary action, August 25th also sees a new moon in your friendship and goals sector, further indicating that you are moving your life in a new direction. However, Neptune’s opposition to the moon indicates that matters pertaining to love or children may be fuzzy or unclear.
The month ends on a positive note, as Venus in your career sector reaches out happily to the fated North Node in your closure house on August 28th. If you end a job or assignment at this time, it will be a happy occasion.
