It’s going to be quite a month for healing as you observe changes taking place internally rather than externally. After Mercury Retrograde has made its exit, we begin to reflect on the happenings of the past either to make right what we have done and said or just to develop an understanding and acceptance of things. It’s perfectly fine to make decisions using your instincts if you find yourself struggling to keep up with information and are feeling ill-informed about a situation. Resisting change will most definitely throw you off balance this month, so go with the flow. Not everything will make sense at the moment. But just go with what draws you, as there is always going to be a reason for it which will reveal itself in time. Let go of attachments, they will do you more harm than good. Reflect on your addictive ways and question your need for them. Embrace a life where you aren’t dependent on anyone or things but yourself and your instincts. Your relationship with your finances will surface. Your method of measuring success with money will be one of the highlights. Your self-worth, capabilities and self-confidence will be the tools you need to be a successful person not your bank balance – is what you will come to learn this August.
IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22) – It’s a month for abundance and growth this August. The advice is to grow your wealth with tried and tested methods. Engage the advice of regulated professionals or bodies when it comes to improving your financial position. There is no get rich quick scheme here. And avoid expecting big wins in short periods of time. Instead embark on a plan which has a track record of providing gains in the long-term future.
Year Ahead (August 2020 – July 2021) – The year ahead is all about seizing the right opportunities at the right time and coupled with a structured plan of attack you should be on your way to achieving success. However, the year kick starts with an abrupt end to something that you are passionate about. Something which brings you back to the drawing board of life again. You could either experience an end to a relationship with a paternal figure in your life or suffer the loss of a career or a mentor. This doesn’t deter you from trying again though. You waste no time in instilling a plan in winning back what you have just lost. The plan is to turn a negative situation into a positive one. And the good news is you do find success in it by the end of January 2021. You may find things getting a little loaded for you in the second half. You may have taken on more than you can handle. It’s a good problem to have in a way. Leo does like a challenge every now and again as it gives you the opportunity to practise your charm in wiggling your way out of tight situations. Once again you find a solution to your challenges. By the last quarter, you are bursting with ideas and enthusiasm, and an opportunity comes along at a very opportune time in your life. There are signs all around for you to take it. Things come full circle again; and you will have gained what you lost at the start of the year and much more by the end of it.
Aries (Mar 21– Apr 19) – You finally see success in your collaborative efforts this month. It’s a time for celebration; as your efforts will be paid off. This success didn’t come about without its problems. There will always be a lot of ‘shouting’ – a want to be heard and to take credit for the team’s success within the collaboration. So the key is to allow everyone the opportunity to be heard and an agreement to be made collectively should an idea or suggestion be followed through. This would be the best way forward to maintain harmonious team synchronicity.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20) – You are trying to turn around a lacklustre or unfulling time in your career this month. With horsepower like drive and determination you work towards shifting the situation to one which is more aligned with your goals and ambitions. The good news is you do achieve what you set out to do. You may not be able to do this by yourself so be open to gathering the help you need and organise your resources well.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20) – You decide to take your chances this month and try to revive a relationship that has gone sour or has experienced a demise. You’ve reached a point where you have had enough of playing the victim and feel it’s time to let go of any animosity and extend an olive branch. Your enthusiasm, positive energy and charisma will be infectious this August; a winning formula for winning over your estranged connections.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22) – This may be one of the best months in the year for Cancer. You have followed and heeded all professional advice and have developed good financial habits as a result. The good news is, it all pays off. You will achieve the best financial gains this August. You could say your wishes will be coming true this month. All your hard work of acquiring knowledge and forbearance will be producing the results that you have set out for.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22) – You are embarking on a new journey this August. It’s taken months of planning and research to get to where you are now. And the moment of clarity has arrived where you feel the time is perfect to launch your project. The move is a strategic one which generates the interest and success you were hoping to achieve.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22) – You find yourself in an unexpected circumstance this month; a collapsed relationship or partnership. Something you did not see coming. Thankfully, you find the energy and enthusiasm to rebuild what has gone adrift. The reason for things not working out are mostly centred around your overshadowing personality and ideas over your partner’s. So don’t take things personally and there is really no need to create further upheaval than there already is. The truth about the relationship will be revealed and you will realise how unaligned your beliefs are and this slump is really just a blessing in disguise.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21) – Your worries are most definitely unfounded this month. It has also been a cause for your lack of sleep in some ways. The issues revolve around your finances and providing for your family or making home improvements or even keeping up with your mortgage payments. Your determination and charisma do come to the rescue this August. Your resourcefulness and network will provide a safety net and you find yourself in a position of feeling abled rather than disabled with your finances by the end of the month.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21) – You are seeking an avenue to grow your financial pot this month; either in the form of a side hustle or extra work or responsibilities added to your portfolio . Your ideas are bountiful but they aren’t particularly thought through. Curb your enthusiasm to rush forward but instead research your idea for potential and pitfalls. Give it time – after all Rome wasn’t built in a day. So patience in this game will pay off eventually and you will be on your way to earning the extra income that you had envisioned for yourself.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19) – There is upheaval and then making up in relationships all within the month of August. Expect a break down with family relationships or your partner. You aren’t going to give an opportunity for things to fester but you choose to take matters into your own hands to ‘fix’ things. It doesn’t take long before all is happily ever after again. Well done Capricorn!
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18) – It looks like the month of August is going to be a comforting month for Aquarius. Balance is achieved in both the workplace as well as family life. Workload seems to be evenly shared with the team at work and this provides a sense of calm and increase in productivity. In turn, this positivity brushes off on family life where there is increased harmony, thanks to improved temperament.
Pisces (Mar 20 – Apr 221) – It’s decision time this August. You are on a quest to realise your material dreams. You are at a crossroads; deciding about a career change or whether to pursue a business idea or leave your full time job to turn your side hustle into a full blown business. You aren’t clear about your path ahead. So in times like this, you will have to fall back on your intuition and experience to see yourself through this challenge. The fantastic news is you do make a decision that feels right for you.
