Pisces August 2019

Pisces (19 February – 20 March)

Jupiter Peaks

It’s a lively month coming up and the best news for you is the fact that your ruling planet, Jupiter, turns direct on the 11th. Jupiter is the biggest and best planet in astrology and is currently in fire sign, Sagittarius.

This highlights the peak of your horoscope as Sagittarius rules your career and vocation, your status and reputation. It’s about your future path in life, where you’re heading and why.

Once Jupiter turns direct, you are likely to feel more motivated and ambitious to get ahead. Alternatively, you could find that a new opportunity comes your way which you can’t refuse. This could be linked to travel or study, publishing or the media. Certainly, if you can boost your profile and expand your career and vocation, you’re on the right lines.

To make the most of Jupiter, you’re wise to be visionary, take risks and play big. Jupiter remains in Sagittarius until early December so utilise this dynamic and forward-moving period in your life.

Jupiter’s not acting alone either, as it teams up with the Sun in Leo on the 7th, Venus, the planet of relating, on the 8th and Mercury, the planet of communication, on the 21st. Therefore, this feels like a lot of expansive energy that you can channel into your work, your mission, your career, your purpose. It’s important that you have something to aim for this month to make the most of some stunning planetary activity.

Turning Points

There are some key turning points this month and you’re wise to work with the Moon cycle. On the 1st (July 31st in America), there’s a New Moon in Leo, a symbol of new beginnings. Leo rules your work and routine, your lifestyle and health.

This is a green light to be pro-active in these areas, to launch something new and set your intentions for the month ahead. You have a lot of key planets backing you, so ensure you have a good team around you. There’s a sense that you can’t do everything on your own and you need support in different areas.

This might include outsourcing, finding a VA or PA, signing up with a coach or advisor or any other way that helps you to feel supported and get ahead. You could find you’re overstretched time-wise with too much on your plate. Deal upfront with what’s important and urgent and see how you can delegate or postpone the rest.

Be Flexible

The dates when you need to be extra flexible are the 2nd and 16th and the 12th. The first two dates, unpredictable Uranus clashes with key planets in Leo. On the third date, Uranus switches direction and turns retrograde.

Uranus often coincides with the unexpected, a diversion, a change of plan. In Taurus, Uranus lights up your communication sector, so be ready for power outages or meetings that get cancelled.

Double-check everything and don’t organise any important meetings or interviews on the dates mentioned above. Play your cards right this month and you could line up a new deal, job or promotion.

The Full Moon on the 15th is when matters come to a head. The Full Moon is often a time of completion and this Full Moon highlights the star signs, Leo and Aquarius. You see your situation with clarity during the Full Moon and it’s a good time to trust your intuition. For you, this is especially important with regard to your working life and health.

Mercury Direct

Another key turning point this month involves Mercury, the planet of communication. On the 1st (July 31st in America), Mercury turns direct in Cancer after three weeks retrograde, i.e. on go slow. Cancer rules your children, romance, creative projects, entertainment and luck.

When Mercury turns direct, you can sort out any misunderstandings and speak with confidence. Sometimes, new information comes to light that helps you make key decisions in your life. Mercury in Cancer represents connecting conversations. It remains here until the 11th and there’s less emotion and drama involved.

Relationship Vibes

Relationships pick up for you after the 18th. In fact, late August could be one of the most stunning periods of the whole year for love and relationships. This is because there’s a flood of planetary input in Virgo and your relationship sector.

Firstly, passion planet, Mars, enters Virgo on the 18th followed swiftly by Venus on the 21st. Two days later and the Sun enters Virgo followed by Mercury on the 29th. Finally, there’ s a New Moon in Virgo on the 30th. It’s all systems go with regard to love, relationships and partnership in your life.

Plus, the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, unite in Virgo on the 24th. This is special because it’s the only time this year that these two planets come together. This could definitely prove to be a highlight for you when it comes to partnership.

Also, the last week of August is a good time to meet new people, start dating or be spontaneous when it comes to love. This is because Uranus is involved once again but in a positive way. Uranus teams up with Venus on the 26th, Mars on the 28th and the Sun on the 30th.

Uranus rules spontaneity so be impulsive in your communications. Talk to people you meet, line up an impromptu get-together, call someone out of the blue. Don’t be surprised if other people contact you when you were least expecting it.

The astrology promises a lively vibe for all your close connections when partnership can bring security and happiness your way. This isn’t a month to go it alone, even if your adventures and wins come about because of you.

Aquarius August 2019

Aquarius (21 January – 18 February)

It’s all going on this month in your opposite star sign, Leo. Leo rules your relationships, both personal and professional and it’s here where there are lots of comings and goings.

New Beginnings

For some of you, this could be a gorgeous time for love and it’s the start of August that brings a significant turning point. This is because of a New Moon on the 1st (July 31st in America) that takes place in Leo.

New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings. Sometimes, they bring someone new into your life. Or, there’s a chance to start over and turn a fresh page. This New Moon coincides with Mercury’s change of direction, also on the 1st (July 31st in America).

Mercury is the planet of communication and Mercury turned retrograde in Leo on July 8th. When Mercury’s retrograde, sometimes people go quiet on you. Other times, there are misunderstandings or a lack of communication. You may not know your own mind and you don’t always know what other people are thinking or feeling.

When Mercury turns direct, it can be like a lightbulb switching on, a green light. Hidden information comes to light or you hear news that you were waiting for. There’s reason to celebrate if someone close is starting a new job or has good news about their health. Or perhaps, you’re the one who hears something that boosts you with regard to these key areas.

The Uranus Factor

When it comes to love, however, you may find you’re on a magical carpet ride. Swings and roundabouts are there to enjoy but life remains slightly unpredictable. This has a lot to do with the fact that your co-ruler, Uranus, is active in the first two weeks of August.

Uranus clashes with Venus, the planet of love, on the 2nd and talk planet, Mercury, on the 16th. Plus, Uranus switches direction on the 12th when it turns from forward motion to reverse motion. This could mean you’re unsure what you want when it comes to love or a relationship is off then on.

As Uranus is in Taurus and your home and family sector, there might be comings and goings which have a knock-on effect in a close relationship. An issue with the in-laws perhaps or someone in your partner’s family who’s not happy about your union.

Love & Friendship Highs

During this same period, there’s some gorgeous astrology too. Venus, the planet of love and relating is in Leo until the 21st. And, on the 14th, the Sun and Venus unite. This seems to suggest that you’ll be around people who make you smile and that love flows between you.

Plus, the biggest and best planet, Jupiter, is in on the act. Jupiter is currently in Sagittarius and your friendship and group sector. Jupiter turns direct on the 11th, when its influence is strong. Plus, Jupiter teams up with the Sun in Leo on the 7th, Venus in Leo on the 8th and Mercury in Leo on the 21st.

Jupiter expands what it touches and this is gorgeous for love and relationships, socialising and enjoying yourself. Be around other people, whether for friendship or reasons that matter to you personally. You could get involved with politics, a social, environmental or humanitarian cause. Be around people who uplift you and know that whatever your personal mission, ‘together, you are bigger and better’.

The Full Moon on the 15th could be a highlight of the month for you. This Full Moon falls in your star sign, Aquarius, and it’s about finding yourself through your relationship with other people. Other people may act as a mirror helping you to see yourself more clearly or reveal deeper aspects within. Full Moons are gorgeous for celebration and partying, enjoying your life.

Financial Ties

There’s a shift in planetary energy from the 18th onwards. This is when the inner planets begin to leave behind fire sign, Leo, and enter earth sign Virgo. In general, you might find that life starts to quieten down a little from mid-month onwards or perhaps you’re ready for a gentler pace.

Action planet, Mars, is the first to enter Virgo on the 18th, followed swiftly by Venus on the 21st, the Sun on the 23rd and talk planet, Mercury on the 29th. Plus, the following day, there’s a second New Moon in Virgo on the 30th.

This is important for you when it comes to money matters because Virgo rules joint finances and shared resources. You may be ready to take stock of your finances or know that you need to sort things out on the money front. You could be sorting out admin, paying bills or organising a better financial system for yourself.

Sometimes, money comes your way unexpectedly when you have key planets in this sector of your horoscope. Plus, your co-ruler, Uranus, is in action again late August, as it teams up with Venus on the 26th, Mars on the 28th and the Sun on the 30th.

These are positive planetary aspects that can spring surprises or bring the unexpected in a good way. It links property and home in your horoscope, so there may be swift developments in these areas.

Family too are pulled into the planetary picture, whether you’re sharing resources with family or helping one another out. Partnership is a key theme, especially when Venus and Mars, the lovers of the heavens, unite in Virgo on the 24th. This is the only time this year that these two planets make a connection in this way.

You could decide to move in with a partner, set up a joint bank account, sign a contract or start a joint venture that’s lasting. Focus on your financial future to create a more secure way of life.

Capricorn August 2019

Capricorn (22 December – 20 January)

Mercury Direct

The start of August brings significant turning points. Firstly, the planet of communication, Mercury, turns direct on the 1st (July 31st in America) after three weeks retrograde, i.e. on go slow.

Sometimes, this brings new information to light. Other times, you can leap in and sort out a misunderstanding or resolve a problem or issue. Mercury turns direct in your opposite star sign, Cancer, so this is about your 1-to-1’s, both personal and professional.

If there’s someone you haven’t heard from for a while or you want to chase up a contact in your life, it’s a great time to do so. Mercury turning direct often presents a second chance to make a move which didn’t work out previously.

Also, Mercury turns direct at the same degree as the Lunar Eclipse took place on July 16th. Therefore, these two events/dates may be linked. There’s less emotion involved this time around and you can have a heart-felt conversation without it becoming overly dramatic.

If you want to talk to your other half about anything important, start the conversation rolling as soon as August gets underway.

New Moon Leo

Also, this is an important date for another reason. On the 1st (July 31st in America), there’s a New Moon, a symbol of new beginnings. This New Moon falls in Leo and the sector of your horoscope which represents joint finances and shared resources.

This is about all forms of money matters; inheritances, taxes, investments, savings & debts. It’s also about power and the ties that are created by money. You may find you’re ready to deal with a taboo issue, something that’s hidden, that you want to bring to light.

Leo is a star sign linked to courage as it rules the heart. It’s associated with the light too, thanks to its ruler, the Sun. The first two weeks of August are ideal for being bold and brave and tackling something you’ve been avoiding for the past few weeks.

Money & Karma

There’s also a sense of karma around money matters. Or, a reminder that what you give you receive in return. This is because the inner planets moving through Leo team up with big planet, Jupiter, in Sagittarius.

The key dates are the 7th, 8th and 21st. Plus, Jupiter turns direct on the 11th. Both Leo and Sagittarius are star signs linked to generosity. So, there’s a flow of money in the first fortnight, that feels abundant. You could receive a gift or bonus. Or perhaps, you’re the one reaching out to help fund-raise for a good cause or be there to help someone close.

Jupiter in Sagittarius links to your past connections, a benefactor or someone from your past who repays a favour or you repay them. Jupiter is the planet most closely linked to truth and justice. Decide how you can personally work with your astrology to ask for what’s rightfully yours or ensure justice is done.

The Full Moon on the 15th is a pivotal date as it highlights the star signs, Leo and Aquarius, the financial axis of your horoscope. Fulls Moons often coincide with achievement or culmination. They bring hidden matters to light and you can see things with clarity. It’s a strong period to trust your intuition.

The only proviso concerns the planet Uranus currently in Taurus. Uranus clashes with key planets in Leo on the 2nd and 16th and Uranus turns retrograde on the 12th. These aren’t the best times to be impulsive, especially around money. This might be linked to a child or lover, a hobby or leisure pursuit.

Also, consider how money and freedom are linked in your life. You may choose to pay someone off so you can cut ties. Or, you realise that someone close needs to be more responsible for their own affairs, without you cutting in. Money and emotions are closely linked for the first half of the coming month. Be aware of this and notice when guilt or other deep emotions kick in.

Bigger Picture

There’s a shift in planetary energy after the 18th. This is the date when action planet, Mars, enters earth sign Virgo. Mars is swiftly joined by Venus on the 21st, the Sun on the 23rd and Mercury on the 29th. Plus, there’s a New Moon in Virgo on the 30th. After a potentially emotional or dramatic first fortnight, you might be more than ready for more stability or a steadier pace of life.

Virgo expands your horizons, as it’s linked to travel and study, the bigger picture. You could be keen to go back to school, to teach or study. You might be seeking deeper meaning and purpose in the world, away from material matters. You could be called down a spiritual path or find religion comforting or consoling.

New Love

Love too is part of the picture. In fact, this is one reason why you may be keen to travel, to catch up with a loved one. Venus and Mars, the lovers of the heavens, unite in Virgo on the 24th. This is the only time this year that these two planets come together.

Uranus in Taurus teams up with Venus on the 26th, Mars on the 28th and the Sun on the 30th. Taurus rules romance and new love in your horoscope, as well as other areas of life. This whole combination feels exciting for relationships. Perhaps, after the choppy waters of July, you’re more than ready to turn a new page and start over.

Sagittarius August 2019

Sagittarius (23 November – 21 December)

Jupiter Joy

There are many reasons to be excited about the month coming up. The main one for you is the fact that your ruling planet, Jupiter, turns direct in your star sign, Sagittarius, on the 11th. Jupiter has been retrograde, i.e. in retreat since mid-April. But, this month, it switches direction and will be in forward motion until early December.

This is good news if your birthday is on December 6th or 7th or you have key planets/angles at 14 degrees Sagittarius. This is where Jupiter turns direct in the zodiac.

When the slower-moving planet are retrograde, their influence turns inwards. Change or growth can happen on an inner level. When the slower-moving planets are in direct motion, their influence is felt out in the world. Therefore, if you’ve been plotting or planning over the last few months, now is the ideal time to go public with your ideas, plans and projects.

While Jupiter is in Sagittarius, this is about your personal goals and aims, your image and profile and how the world sees you. You may want to do something special to mark Jupiter’s change of direction, make an announcement or boost your image and profile in some way.

Jupiter rules the law, publishing, religion, beliefs, travel and higher education. This is your opportunity to flourish in one of these key areas of life. When Jupiter’s active, it’s a positive time to be visionary, take risks and play big.

Jupiter is in action on the 7th, 8th and 21st, when it teams up with the Sun in Leo, Venus in Leo and Mercury in Leo. This is fire sign heaven, whether it brings new opportunities your way or you’re enjoying yourself more than you have for some time.

Travel & Adventure

Leo is the sign of the moment for the first two weeks of August, so if you’re on holiday or travelling, you’re in tune with your stars. In fact, Leo rules the sector of your horoscope that’s closely linked to all things Jupiter. This includes travel & study, the bigger picture, being expansive and living life to the full.

Plus, there’s a New Moon in Leo on the 1st (July 31st in America). A New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings and a great date to set your intentions, launch something new and start over.

The two weeks between the New Moon on the 1st and the Full Moon on the 15th are ideal for being pro-active and getting out and about. The more you put into life, the more you get back in return. The start of August promises freedom and adventure, so embrace new experiences and live life to the full.

Freedom Calls

The only proviso is the fact that Uranus kicks in early August too. Uranus is currently in Taurus and your work and health sector. Therefore, things may not always go according to plan – key dates are the 2nd and 16th.

This feels disruptive, so be flexible in the first fortnight and go with the flow. If you’re out of work, it would be a good time to take yourself off somewhere new and different. Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus on the 12th, the day after your ruler Jupiter, turns direct in Sagittarius.

Both planets emphasise space and freedom and you won’t find it easy if you’re tied down or restricted in any way. You might be the one making a bid for freedom.

Love Vibes

Love too is part of the picture when the inner planets are in Leo. Venus, the planet of love and relating, is involved in both the New Moon on the 1st and the Full Moon on the 15th.

This promises a holiday romance or fun in the sun with the one you love. There’s a foreign theme to love and relationships. The key date for love is the 21st, when your planet Jupiter teams up with your partner planet, Mercury.

Money Matters

Mercury is on a new journey this month as the planet of communication turns direct on the 1st (July 31st in America). Mercury picks up speed in Cancer and the star sign that rules joint finances and shared resources in your horoscope.

This could prove to be a significant turning point for money matters when new information comes to light or something hidden is revealed. Mercury turns direct at the same degree in the zodiac as the Lunar Eclipse on July 16th. Therefore, these two events may be linked.

Look for a way to resolve a situation, pay off a debt or take advantage of a shifting money market. You can start to make investments or purchases with confidence once Mercury is back up to speed.

Career Goals

During the second half of August, you’re wise to turn your attention to work, your career and vocation, your future path. It’s time to ask where you’re heading and why. Some of you could make great strides and swiftly from the 18th onwards.

This is the date when action planet Mars moves into Virgo and your career and vocation sector. Mars is joined by Venus on the 21st, the Sun on the 23rd and communication planet, Mercury, on the 29th.

Plus, one day later, on the 30th, there’s a second New Moon, this time in Virgo boosting your career and vocation, your status and reputation. You’re wise to get back to work or focus on next steps with this strong earth sign energy.

Uranus is also involved, in a good way, on the 26th, the 28th and the 30th. Play your cards right and you could land yourself a new job, a promotion or more exposure within your career.

Love too could be part of the picture as the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, meet in Virgo on the 24th. This is the only time this year that they unite. You may find love through work, fall for someone you admire or find that you and someone close make a great team.

Libra August 2019

Libra (23 September – 23 October)

Your planet, Venus, is in the thick of the action this month and plays a significant role in two New Moons – 1st and 30th – and the Full Moon – 15th. Therefore, pay close attention to your feelings, your emotions, your intuition. Be in tune with the Moon cycle.

August is a month when you can step out of a challenging period. You may have learned a lot about yourself over the last few weeks or be more appreciative of the people you love and the life you live. Early August brings turning points your way, enabling you to turn a fresh page as a new month begins.

Mercury Direct

The first turning point involves Mercury, the planet of communication. On the 1st (July 31st in America), Mercury turns direct after three weeks retrograde, i.e. on go slow. Mercury turns direct in Cancer, the star sign at the peak of your horoscope.

Cancer represents your career and vocation, your status and reputation, your future path and your place in the public eye. Mercury turns direct at the same degree in the zodiac as the Lunar Eclipse on July 16th. Therefore these two events/dates may be linked.

Mercury’s change of direction could bring new information to light or it restores clarity and focus. You can make key decisions with confidence and believe what you hear. Sort out any muddles or misunderstandings early on in the month so you have a clear picture of where you’re heading and why.

New Moon Leo

On the same day as Mercury turns direct, there’s a New Moon in Leo. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings. And, like Mercury’s change of direction, they often bring what’s hidden to light. They are powerful beacons for change and progress.

Set your intentions on the New Moon, especially when it comes to friends and group projects, your role within society and your goals out in the world. Leo is about networking for you, your wider social circle, politics, the environment, any area of life where you come together with other people.

Fire Sign Energy

It’s here, in the star sign Leo, where there’s strong planetary activity for the first two weeks of August. Action planet, Mars, is in Leo until the 18th which it’s great for being pro-active, getting out and about and teaming up with other people. Together you’re bigger and better.

Also, key planets in Leo team up with Jupiter in Sagittarius. This is strong, dynamic fire sign energy and for you, it’s all about connections. Jupiter’s the biggest and best planet and currently in your communication sector.

Jupiter turns direct in Sagittarius on the 11th so it’s time to put your ideas into action and get things moving. You may want to express yourself in the spoken or written word, you might be brainstorming or sharing ideas with others. If you’re involved in sales or marketing, it’s an ideal time to spread the word and see your ideas go viral.

Teaching and studying come under Sagittarius’ umbrella and you could be learning lots this month. Perhaps, a new language or finding out about different cultures and backgrounds. Ensure you get out and about as this will stimulate your curiosity and bring new opportunities your way. The key dates when Jupiter is strong are the 7th, 8th and 21st, plus the 11th, the day Jupiter turns direct.

Money Matters

The one word of caution during this period is to be careful when it comes to money. Don’t throw your money away or spend recklessly. This is because you currently have Uranus, the planet of unexpected, in Taurus and your joint finance sector.

Uranus clashes with your planet, Venus, on the 2nd and talk planet, Mercury, on the 16th. Plus, Uranus turns retrograde on the 12th and this is often a time when you feel its energy intensely.

Money matters are well-starred for you later in the month. But, up until mid-month, take less risks financially. You might find yourself in a situation where you have to spend more or give out more money. Yet, at the same time don’t do so through guilt and don’t allow money to become an emotional factor in close ties.

Love Ties

Love and romance could be an important part of this month’s activity. Venus, your planet, represents love and is strong in sociable Leo until the 21st. Love and friendship are linked throughout the first three weeks of August.

Plus, the Sun and Venus unite in Leo on the 14th, the day before a glorious Full Moon on the 15th. This would be a great time to celebrate, enjoy love, fall in love. Be around people who make you happy and say Yes to life.

A Slower Pace

There’s a slower pace after the 18th. This is the date when the inner planets begin to move into Virgo and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Mars enters Virgo on the 18th followed by your ruler, Venus, on the 21st, the Sun on the 23rd and talk planet, Mercury, on the 29th. Plus, there’s a New Moon in Virgo on the 30th.

You might need a rest from socialising or a hectic schedule. Virgo represents retreat in your life, coming back down to earth, focusing on order and structure. Slow things down yourself, otherwise life could slow things down for you.

You might need a rest from spending too or to put your mind to money-making activities. Focus on money in the last week of August and take advantage of any new opportunities that come your way.

Venus, your ruler, teams up with Mars, your partner planet in Virgo on the 24th. This is the only time this year these two planets come together. This could take you back to the past, you might fall in love with yourself or recognise that you and someone close have a secret or hidden bond. It’s intriguing astrology.

Virgo August 2019

Virgo (23 August – 22 September)

Mercury Direct

The best news for you this month is the fact that on the 1st (July 31st in America), your planet, Mercury, turns direct after three week retrograde, i.e. on go slow. Mercury switched direction on July 8th and, at the start of August, turns again and is getting back up to speed.

Notice what information comes to light on or around this date and what news reaches you. Things remain hidden while Mercury’s on go slow but tend to come out into the open when Mercury’s direct.

It’s also an excellent time to speak up or sort out a misunderstanding. Mercury turns direct in Cancer and your friendship and group sector. Consider whether you need to make amends, chase someone up or make a key decision about this area of your life.

Plus, when Mercury’s direct, you can think straight. If you’ve been feeling confused or disoriented, now’s the time to make decisions. Listen to your inner voice and recognise what you want and need.

Also, this could be a significant turning point for your relationship with a child or lover. Mercury turns direct at the same degree in the zodiac as the Lunar Eclipse on July 16th. Therefore, events back then could be linked to events early August. Life presents you with an opportunity to resolve a complex situation or heal a rift.

New Moon Leo

The other major planetary factor at the start of the month is a New Moon in Leo, again on the 1st (July 31st in America). New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings and Leo represents the most hidden and personal sector of your horoscope. It’s about what happens on the inside. This might be linked to your spiritual path or inner concerns or issues.

Here too, there’s a sense of progress, a chance to move things forward. Whatever you need to sort out personally, now’s the time to get moving. Leo is the star sign that’s ruled by the Sun so it represents vitality and energy. In August, do whatever’s needed to recharge your batteries and boost your energy.

The first two weeks would be ideal for a holiday or seeking out the sun. Either that, or go on a retreat. Also, it would be an ideal time to a take trip in to the past or go somewhere you’ve been before.

Home Expansions

Home and family are another big feature of your astrology mid-August. This is due to the biggest and best planet, Jupiter, which turns direct in Sagittarius on the 11th. Sagittarius rules your home and family, your past, your roots and where you come from.

Take a voyage of discovery, open up your home to loved ones, organise a big family get-together. Jupiter teams up with planets in Leo on the 7th, 8th and, most importantly for you, your ruling planet, Mercury, on the 21st.

Notice who comes in to your life on or around these dates and notice who you find yourself thinking about. There’s a sense of karma or destiny involved, whether you hook up with a benefactor or bump in to someone unexpectedly who turns out to have family connections.

Jupiter in Sagittarius is about expanding your home, the space where you live. You need freedom in your life with this combination, whether you’re moving things around at home or looking for somewhere new to live.

Changing Plans

The Full Moon on the 15th can also be important in this respect. Although, there is a hint that you might discover where you want to be when you find yourself in the wrong place. This is because you have Uranus, the planet of the unexpected, currently in Taurus and your travel sector.

Uranus clashes with your ruler, Mercury, on the 16th, the day after the Full Moon. You could end up being somewhere only to find you want to be somewhere else entirely. Trust your intuition mid-month and follow your heart. Events around the Full Moon could prove pivotal, whether this is linked to your work or your wish to be of service to others.

Star Of The Show

After the 18th, it’s all systems go as the inner planets move into your star sign, Virgo. In fact, if you are on holiday or taking a step back, you might want to re-organise your schedule so you’re ready to get things moving from the 18th onwards.

The first planet to enter Virgo is action planet, Mars, on the 18th, where it remains until early October. You only have Mars in your star sign once every two years, so this is great for being ambitious, dynamic and to get things moving.

Mars is swiftly followed by Venus, the planet of relating, on the 21st, the Sun on the 23rd and your ruling planet, Mercury, on the 29th. Plus, if that wasn’t enough focus on you, your personal goals and aims, on the 30th, there’s a New Moon in Virgo.

This is a real star show of planetary energy on your sign, Virgo. You might want to boost your image and profile and let people see who you really are. You might choose to express yourself in the spoken or written word. Or, you find yourself in a way that you haven’t for some time.

During the last week of the month, you could have a strong intuition of who you are or where you need to be. This might mean a certain place in the world or the next stage in your life. This could include a study course or teaching and passing on what you know.

Love & Foreign Connections

Also, there’s a strong focus on love during this period. Venus graces your star sign from the 21st until September 14th. Plus, on the 24th, the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, unite for the only time this year in your star sign, Virgo.

This is gorgeous if your birthday is late August, when love has a foreign theme. Bear this in mind, whether you’re seeking a holiday romance or you fancy a first or second honeymoon. Love and destiny are intertwined.

Leo August 2019

Leo (23 July – 22 August)

Moving Forwards

It’s all systems go as August begins. The Sun, your ruler, has been in your star sign, Leo, since July 23rd. Yet, it’s only as the month of August begins that there’s a sense of progress and forward motion.

There are two reasons for this. Firstly, communication planet, Mercury, turns direct on the 1st (July 31st in America). Mercury’s been retrograde, i.e. on go slow since July 8th. Its change of direction often brings new information to light and can release any tensions.

Mercury turns direct in Cancer and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. Sometimes, this flags up personal issues, your inner voice, worry or anxiety. You may get a clear sense of what you want or need moving forwards and can let go of the things that have been holding you back.

Mercury turns direct at the same degree as the Lunar Eclipse on July 16th. Therefore, these two events may be linked. An issue with your health or work could be resolved, whether you find the right expert, you get the information you need or your state of mind improves.

New Moon Leo

This is a top month to develop a positive attitude in life and make the most of whatever comes your way. Also, on the 1st (again, July 31st in America), there’s a New Moon in Leo, a symbol of new beginnings.

New Moons are always a promising time to set your intentions, launch something new and be pro-active. This New Moon is particularly powerful for you as it’s your annual New Moon. Therefore, use the New Moon energy to plan ahead, not only for August but the coming year as well.

When key planets are in Leo, the emphasis is on you, your personal goals and aims. It’s about your image and profile, how other people see you and your physical well-being.

Attraction Potential

Plus, you have action planet, Mars, in Leo until the 18th and the planet of love and relating, Venus, in Leo until the 21st. The stars are on you side so make the most of this golden opportunity to shine. Love could be scintillating for some of you and the more confident you are, the more you attract other people into your life.

The Sun, your ruler, teams up with love planet, Venus, on the 14th which could prove to be a special time for you. In fact, this loving combination falls one day before the Full Moon which cuts across the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac.

This Full Moon brings emotions to the fore and highlights you and your close relationships. Do something special with your partner mid-month and celebrate with the ones you love.

Some of you may sign or seal an important contract in the first two weeks of August and it would be a great time to do so. Partnership and loyalty are rewarded.

Jupiter Luck

More good news comes in the shape of Jupiter, the biggest planet and the best planet in astrology. Jupiter is currently in a fellow fire sign, Sagittarius, the sector of your horoscope which rules luck, entertainment, creativity, romance & children.

Plus, on the 11th, Jupiter turns direct and remains in forward motion in Sagittarius until early December. This is glorious astrology for you. It feels lucky, fortuitous. You may find yourself in the right place at the right time or be open to a new opportunity that comes your way. This might produce a gift, an award, a competition win.

Jupiter’s in action on the 7th, the 8th and the 21st. All of these dates are promising to take a risk, live life to the full and do more of what you love. This could spell good news for your relationship with a child or perhaps you’re a proud parent.

It’s also about new love and romance and another reason why August could be a stunning month for you when it comes to your close relationships. The more you put into your life, especially up until the 23rd while the Sun graces your star sign, the more you get back in return. Allow your true personality to shine and let people see you for who you really are.

Career Change Of Gear

There may be some changes this month that you weren’t expecting, thanks to the planet of unpredictability, Uranus. Uranus is currently in Taurus and your career and vocation sector. On the 12th, Uranus turns retrograde so look out for a significant turning point in your own life.

In fact, there are a couple of dates that could be bumpy with regard to your career or future path. Plans may change suddenly on or around the 2nd or 16th. This could be connected to what’s happening with a partner, either personal or professional. Keep your options open, be flexible and be aware that some things are out of your control.

Money Assets

Money is under the cosmic spotlight from the 18th onwards and this is where you can make significant progress. Action planet, Mars, enters Virgo and your personal money sector on the 18th followed by Venus on the 21st, the Sun, your ruler, on the 23rd and talk planet, Mercury, on the 29th.

Also, these key planetary bodies team up with Uranus in Taurus in a good way. The dates to note are the 26th, 28th and 30th. Act fast and you can turn work and money matters to your advantage. The latter date coincides with a second New Moon, this time in Virgo. Again, partnership is the key to success and negotiating well.

Get your finances in order and consider investing in a venture that’s innovative, new age or linked to technology. Expert advice could prove costly but worth it in the long run.
