Ah, yes. August. A great time to do–well, not much of anything, actually. Wither in the oppressive heat that seems to get so much worse at the end of summer. Cry at the thought of heading back to school. Think about doing everything you planned on doing at the beginning of summer–hit that road trip with your friends, read Anna Karenina to better yourself, get a killer tan–but feel s overwhelmed by the prospect that you stay inside and watch those weirdly addicting pimple popping videos until, finally, summer is over.
Still, though, August is an important month. It’s the one right before school starts up again, so it’s just about the right time to make sure all of your thigns are in order, you’ve got some time with your friends, and, obviously, you have to see what the stars have in store for you. So, check out your August horoscope right here:
Leo (July 24-August 23):
Go Leo! This is your time to shine your bright self all over the place. When the Sun travels through your sign you are able to stand in your true and total power. You are natural and very shiny. Be certain to get out there and show them your stuff. There is a calmer energy available which should be great for relaxing and enjoying the finer things in life, like you are meant to do. If you find you are not where you would like to be, choose differently. Life supports change more than anything, so do what needs doing. Even if it’s a nap.
Virgo (August 24-September 23):
Darling Virgo, you are almost at the high point of year for your sign. Use this month to relax so you can be ready to take on the world around the time of your birthday. You can be you with very little effort. Your finely tuned sense of everything can be used to great purpose now. What have you been wanting to get done? What can you let go of? What healthy habit can you begin? All change is supported. When you are on track you will have little to worry about–choose wisely and all will be well.
Libra (September 24-October 23):
This is the perfect month to put yourself out there. You may not know if things are going to work out or not, but that is how you learn to have faith in your very own self. It’s wonderful to be considerate of others, but this month it would be best for you to think of number one first. Be sure that you genuinely want to help before you offer your service–don’t allow obligation to influence you to avoid resentment. This month shines the real you out into the world. You are adorable!
Scorpio (October 24-November 22):
You have a decisive character. This month use it to make some necessary adjustments in your life. Now is a great time to put yourself out there. You are happier in the background, but this month a wonderful opportunity to display your talents will appear. Take it! If you are feeling exhausted by all this time out of your comfort zone, get yourself out into nature. It will soothe your very sensitive soul. If you don’t know all the answers just relax. Not knowing is this first step to knowing. Practice being content in all circumstances. That is true power. You are powerful.
Sagittarius (November 23-December 22):
You are on fire this month. Get out in the world and be yourself. If you find yourself around people that can’t match your level of truth telling, let them go. It is unlikely that you will be able to get past the fact that they can’t be trusted to be honest. Your happy life counts on you being able to shout it from the rooftops- whatever it might be. If they can’t handle the truth they can’t handle you. Not everyone is for everyone and that’s just fine. There is adventure in store for you, choose the right people to join you on your most magnificent journey.
Capricorn (December 23-January 20):
Do it! You know what to do, now is the time to do it. You may not know all the steps involved, but trust that each step you take will lead to the next one. This is how you develop courage. If it seems there is no step to take, don’t force it. Sometimes the best action to take is no action at all. Not easy for an ambitious one such as yourself. Right timing is everything though. Learning this will develop your Capricorn wisdom. Don’t forget, if you made the wrong choice somewhere along the line. You can choose again!
Aquarius (January 21-February 19):
You may be feeling irritable this month. It’s a great time to let your individuality shine, but you might find everyone around you trying to shine too, which is sort of annoying. If you can find the joy in little things you will find your happiness increasing beyond your imagination. Trust that life is there to meet your needs. It may not be logical, but magic never is. Life is full of magic–just open your heart to see it. You’ll find a little effort in the direction of your dreams come true will be supported with coincidences too good to be true. Except they are true.
Pisces (February 20-March 20):
Summer is lovely for such a sensitive soul. You can use the happy feelings generated now to draw even more happy into your life. Taking time to appreciate all the little things: the smell of the sweat peas, the heat of the sun on your face, the feel of the grass between your toes, creates a vortex of gratitude around you. Gratitude is the attitude. It is magnetic and will draw more to be grateful for into your life. Trust your instincts, follow your heart. If the beat you march to is different- be grateful for being wonderfully unique you.
Aries (March 21-April 20):
Summer is for fun fun fun. Now you can relax a little and actually enjoy yourself. Things have been hard lately, but the energy is shifting allowing you to settle down and stop feeling so scattered and exhausted. Lie in the sun and float in a pool. Visit with friend. When fall comes you can get rolling again–for now, spend time appreciating the simple little lovely things life is offering up. Be sure to think positive thoughts about yourself–you can be your own worse enemy. Be your very best friend instead.
Taurus (April 21-May 21):
Isn’t summer divine? The smells in the air, the lazing about in the sun, the good food–it is all well suited to the luxury loving part of you. You might find you can really relax now. If you have been feeling anxious you will find this lift. From now until December things are much more understandable and stable. You aren’t being asked to change the world–just what isn’t working in your world. In an easygoing kind of way, get rid of the old to make room for the new. It will be even better than before.
Gemini (May 22-June 21):
This is a great month to get out there and socialize. Put effort into actually connecting with people. Your curiosity is a great gift that makes you a wonderful communicator. If you focus for long enough, you can create great and intelligent work to for the world. Write a blog, start a podcast, interview people. Surely there has been an idea to do with communication that you could put some effort into making real. Now is your chance. It ‘s likely that you will have more focus than usual–use this time to your advantage and by December, you will have something amazing to show the world.
Cancer (June 22-July 23):
A lot is going on right now in your world. All kinds of change you might be reluctant to make is happening all around you. You are a homebody who might be away from home for awhile. Or maybe you will be making a new home somewhere unfamiliar. Remember life is too full of amazing experiences to let comfort hold you back. Step right on out of your comfort zone and you will grow in ways you didn’t know you needed to. It’s time to be proud of yourself. Life points you in the direction of the questions you need to ask. What do you need to know now?
