So, weirdly enough, it is August now. Isn’t that terrible? No one knows how that happened, and no one could have predicted this (other than, like, by looking at a calendar. And who has time for that?) I maintain that it still feels as though it was literally just Memorial Day, or, at the very least the Fourth of July, which means that the fact that it is technically August is highly offensive to me.
Anyway, August is a fairly pivotal months, as far as months go. You’ll be starting school soon, either in this month or the one following it, which means you have a lot of preparing to do. And, of course, you can’t go into it, like, knowing nothing. There’s no time to waste! Check out your August horoscope to see what the ~stars~ have in store for you this month:
