Taurus: Family connections are centre stage this month. This means the connections that you have with people who live under your roof. It is time to nurture your loved ones close to home. Home improvement projects may also be satisfying. You can also focus on your extended family.
Gemini: Your ruling planet Mercury is moving forward again and the Moon’s Nodes are traversing your Zodiac Sign, heralding a period during which you are brimming with ideas, plans and eager to make connections. It is possible that you have reached a fork in the road and have a choice to make.
Cancer: Loving thoughts. The Cancer Sun Sign person is an expert at having loving thoughts for others, but as the planet Mercury moves through your Zodiac Sign the lesson is to make sure that you apply those thoughts to yourself as well. It’s time to listen to and honour your intuition.
Leo: “Take care of your costume and your confidence will take care of itself.” So says author Amit Kalantri. This is your mantra as the Sun moves through your Zodiac Sign and through the 1st House of your Solar Chart. It is time to focus on your own health and happiness.
Virgo: Virgos need to take some time out. Just before your birthday you need to reassess your previous year and rest up for the next one. By the time your ruling planet Mercury moves into your Zodiac Sign on August 20, you are on the go again.
Libra: You get by with a little help from your friends – but only if you ask. You are adept at appearing calm on the exterior even when the scales are out of balance within. Right now you can connect with friends to celebrate the good times, and also if you need help maintaining your equilibrium.
Scorpio: It’s all systems go in your professional life this month. The Sun is high in your Solar Chart, beckoning career achievements. You may receive recognition for a job well done, a promotion or more responsibility. This is your time to shine. Self-motivation at work is the key in August.
Sagittarius: Overseas connections are highlighted during August. This could be friends, family or colleagues from another country, or perhaps work-related projects. Something or someone is challenging your self-esteem. You need to stay aligned with your own higher purpose, what serves your personal growth. Soul-centred activities are called for.
Capricorn: The planets continue to crowd your Zodiac Sign, calling for self-development. Your own health and happiness are important. So as you shoulder responsibilities you need to also create some ‘me’ time. You are aware of the cycles that are at play in your life and able to work with seasonal changes.
Aquarius: In many ways 2020 is a year of preparation. You are getting ready to have your time in the Sun in 2021. So the questions are: What are your priorities? What areas of your life would you like to work on now to reap rewards next year? You don’t need an instant answer.
Pisces: Health is your focus during August. The word ‘health’ refers to a state of complete emotional, mental and physical well-being. It is time for you to seek a good work/life balance so that you can experience good health. As a Pisces you can pursue alternative health paths as well as the orthodox.
