You may feel very positive for much of the month. Mars will be in your sign and filling you with energy, and the sun in charismatic Leo adds sparkle to your leisure and romance zone until August 22.
And yet care also needs to be taken because there’s also tension showing up over the coming weeks. You might be tempted to do or say something that you later regret when red-hot Mars angles toward powerbroker Pluto on August 13, followed by an edgy aspect to immovable Saturn on August 24.
In the main, though, you’ll feel ready to tackle challenges, and this approach can help offset the effects of retrograde Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto. And lively Uranus rewinds as of August 15, making a total of five planets in reverse.
A full moon in Aquarius on August 3 could be more disruptive than usual because it angles toward Uranus in your money zone. This could see you splurging and perhaps regretting it later. You might be ready to let off some steam, but plan for it and find a way to enjoy yourself with a loved one or friend without it costing the earth.
Chatty Mercury moves fairly swiftly this month and enters theatrical Leo on August 4, where it encourages you to express yourself and share your talents. Don’t keep them to yourself, because there are many who might appreciate them. After just over two weeks, lively Mercury enters Virgo, where it assumes a more organized and focused persona.
The Leo new moon on August 18 forges a harmonious aspect with Mars in your sign and aligns with Mercury. This very creative focus is perfect for initiating creative projects, but it could also see you breaking the ice with a view toward kick-starting a romance.
Are you ready to get your life in order? The sun’s move into Virgo on August 22 encourages you to streamline your routines to promote greater productivity.
