Monthly Horoscopes August 2019
Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
August sees an energy burst for the Rams of the Zodiac with the Sun and your ruling planet Mars in your fiery cousin Leo. It is time for some fun-filled and creative activities. Life often goes in cycles of beginnings and endings. Right now you are poised to begin something new. You can welcome any new changes with the same confidence that a child has when he or she starts a new project. In fact children may be highlighted this month, either your own or someone else’s. Enjoy living in the present moment without a care for the future.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
Your home and hearth are highlighted this month. This may involve changes on the home front such as visitors arriving, young one’s leaving home or a house move. On the other hand, you may start a project that boosts the emotional or financial value of your living quarters. Taureans are like Oak trees, putting down firm roots. As such your home needs to be solid, comfortable and warm. What are you doing to contribute to the cordiality in your own abode? Your family structure changes in some way during August. After all the planet of change continues its way through your Zodiac Sign.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
August is your month for bright ideas. Your mind is more active than usual. It is possible that a lively activity is demanding your attention. If not then you need to keep your mind focussed on positive thoughts. A new skill, hobby or course may be the way to go. Otherwise you could take a short trip. Short journeys have the benefit of giving matters a little distance and a different viewpoint. How you communicate is important right now. So choose your words wisely. Think before you speak, email anyone or post on social media.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
So, you survived the July Eclipses and are wondering what now? Security, financial and personal, are the focus this month. Like the crab you may hunker down every now and then to help feel secure, but what does long-term security mean to you? And how can you create this for yourself? These are the questions posed during August. You may value emotional security more than material goods. It doesn’t really matter what form your need for security takes, as long as you recognised your own vulnerability and have the courage to take action.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
August is your time to shine with the Sun, Venus and Mars in your Zodiac Sign, and Mercury moving into Leo on August 12 (AEST). The planets are aligned in a way that encourages you to be your personal best. Whether you like to be seen as a King, Queen, Princess or Prince you now take centre stage in your life story. Imagine you are centre stage, ready to give a great speech or step into an heroic action. Now apply this to your own personal circumstances. What is your next step?
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Your ruling planet Mercury is stationary in the cosmos at the start of the month (seemingly standing still) and gradually moves forward. Other planets are aligned in a way that also encourage you to stall for a little while. August is your month for some contemplation before moving forward either with changes or no changes. If you have decided to change something in your life then you may still like to rehearse these alterations behind the scenes before making an announcement. Prayer and meditation can also be a source of comfort and guidance.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
Friendship and support groups are highlighted during August. There is a time to reap and a time to sow. Right now, you are reaping the rewards of all of the support that you have given other people. In the past you may have felt that life was about others, as you supported their hopes, dreams and wishes. August sees your friends now support yours. With a few planets lined up in Leo this could also involve a creative or artistic dream coming to fruition through your social networks. All in all, a positive month with a little help from your friends.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
Your working life is centre stage this month. It is time to focus on work-related matters such as office politics, career goals, further study to enhance your professional aspirations etc. You need to meet all of your key performance indicators so that you achieve positive feedback and attention from anyone who holds a position of authority. Praise from your boss this month is high praise indeed. This is also a month during which to avoid full-on combat with anyone at work. Conflict resolution should be calm and done with due diligence as the planet Mars is squaring off with your Sun Sign.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
The Sun is shining on the 9th House of your Solar Chart heralding a time of broadening your horizons. Sagittarians are already adept at taking a broad, philosophical and sunny approach to life. This month you can further your skills especially when it comes to overseas connections and travel, academic study, sports and legalities. Archery, equestrian activities and international code sports may all appeal. If not a sporty type then this is the ideal month to indulge in arm-chair philosophy. The idea is that you stop sweating the small stuff, and see the big picture.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
The Beatles classic “Let it Be” could be your theme song at the moment. Saturn, Pluto and the South Node continue to wend their way through your Zodiac Sign drudging up matters from the past, and loading on responsibilities in the present. The more that you can ‘let it be” and continue with your karmic duties the better off you will be once these planets move further forward. Hardly fair is it that the responsibility laden goats have yet more duties to perform? Just think of the long-term rewards which surely come your way.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Your primary partnership is the focus this month. This could be a personal or business union. If you are single then it is time to date, mate and relate. If you are already in a committed relationship then it is time to shine some light on your partnership. It is possible that your partner asks for some extra attention, or perhaps asks to resolve some conflict. If this is the case then you need to take it seriously. However, it is more likely that you can enjoy fun times and recreate some romance.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Your everyday life changes during August. This could be a shake-up at work, or perhaps your daily transport route is undergoing a change. Whatever your personal scenario the time has come to take a creative stance when it comes to mundane matters. August is the ideal month to take your pet to the vet for a check-up, or perhaps visit a doctor yourself for a general check-up. Everyday appliances and your workaday vehicle may need some attention. If you have been putting off something detailed then now is the time to get it sorted.
