YOUR AUGUST HOROSCOPE
Let the sounds of summer roar as we kick this month off with the sun in the sign of the lion, Leo. August brings with it some of 2016’s finest astrological aspects. Does that mean we can anticipate a problem-free month? Of course not, especially since Uranus (the planet of unexpected change) stationed to go retrograde late last month next to disruptive Eris in the sign of Aries—a configuration that will certainly reverberate.
Fortunately, this month we have lots more positivity too. Both the Leo new moon happening on the 2nd and the Aquarius full moon on the 18th boast opportunity and breakthrough. And later in the month, Venus, Mercury and Jupiter buddy up in Virgo, within days of Mars and Saturn finally aligning in Sagittarius.
What does this mean? Mars and Saturn meeting up at the same degree initiates a new iteration of purpose, and since it happens in the sign Sagittarius (who is ruled by Jupiter), we look to Jupiter to see further conditions surrounding this meet-up.
Jupiter is in the sign of the healer, Virgo, next to benefic Venus and quick-thinking Mercury, so we can look forward to positive news. Yet, there’s a caveat. Just as we finally get multiple green lights, Mercury goes retrograde. Yup, the planet of communication begins his retrograde dance on August 30th, not turning direct until September 21st! We also have two massive eclipses just around the corner next month (a solar eclipse kicks off the month of September) that are sure to twist the plot too. Stay creative! Stay inspired! And enjoy yourself. Onward we go.

|Having just celebrated your birthday, you’re ready to take on the world. The new moon happening on August 2nd in the sign of Leo occurs in your second house of money and self-worth. This is the time for the rubber to hit the road when it comes to manifesting your wealth and future security. So use it wisely to declare your intentions for the future and move forward with abundance. The Aquarius full moon occurring on the 18th brings even more positive support to you as it lights up another of your financial houses: the 8th house of money from others. Having both the new and full moon in your financial houses this month dares you to own your worth and then capitalize on the opportunities coming your way. Next month kicks off with an eclipse, so be certain to make headway now.|
|Happy Birthday! Let’s be honest. This month you’re going to want to do one thing—party (as you should). Look Leo, the most important thing you can do is have fun, stay heart-centered and creative. It’s what you were born to do. As a natural leader, your primary purpose this lifetime is to inspire and uplift others, which is pretty hard to do when your well is dry. So please use August to refill the coffers and open your heart even more. The good news is, aside from having your solar return and new moon in your sign (two things that reset the engines) you’re also going to have Jupiter meeting up with Venus and Mercury in your house of Money later this month. Stay active, because I think you’re going to get what you want—or at least you have the celestial support to make it happen.|
|You’ve persevered through some intense circumstances in recent years. Caught in the crossfire of Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn, you’ve dealt with more than your fair share of challenges (Aries and Capricorn square your sign). But! Get ready, because next month, Jupiter will bestow upon you a serious dose of support—and Jupiter will stay in your sign for a little more than a year. So… this month, prepare. The new moon on the 2nd in Leo unleashes your ability to manifest. Use this new moon to get seriously clear on your wishes for the future. The full moon in Aquarius on the 18th brings your creativity to a whole new level. Finally, it’s your turn for the divine favor. Though, we need to keep things in perspective too. September brings with it Mercury retrograde and two eclipses. That said, I still think you’re about to see a major upswing, so get ready.|
