Your August Horoscope
Leo season means good vibes galore for every sign on the chart
Leo season is here and that means that good vibes like joy, energy, passion, and self-expression are becoming more present for every sign on the chart. Breathe a little easier knowing this month brings a boatload of positivity. Plus, action-driven Mars and pleasure seeking Venus are in the same sign! Which means promotions and fun coming your way.
Hope you’re excited! The new moon on the 5th heralds an opportunity for new love or the beginning of a new creative project. Your ruler, Mars, is heavily activated during this Leo season as well. This means that whatever good mojo you’ll be getting on the 5th will have staying power due to your naturally active nature. Who says you can’t have it all?
Venus, your ruler, is spending the first half of August in Virgo. This means that this time will be all about pleasure. The perfect time for a little (or a lot) of indulgence, whatever that means to you. Once Venus moves into Libra, your work-life dynamics will also fall into place. No work drama? Sounds like a fabulous month to me.
This month is all about communication for you as your ruler, Mercury, is in Leo until the 16th. The new moon on the 5th also heralds some positive change. But this doesn’t mean you should wait for something good to come. Go out there and get it girl! Whether it be booking a vacation or finally making a move on the person you’ve been harboring a crush on. On the whole, you’re a social butterfly this month. Enjoy! But don’t forget to stay grounded too.
The new moon on the 5th occurs in the part of your chart that correlates to your finances. Good news if you’ve been stuck in a financial rut; a new opportunity to sort your finances is coming your way. Take this time to commit to this positive change. Clean out your wallet and organize your important bills to stay on track in the coming months. Resist the urge to buy pretty things when Venus moves into Libra in the second half of the month – your money badassery is more important than that cute mug from Anthropologie.
This is YOUR month my fiery lovely! The new moon on the 5th is ushering in a new beginning. If something in your life has been hitting a roadblock, this is the time to take fearless action. The sun, Mercury, and Saturn are all combining to create a potent source of positive and productive energy this month, so you’ll be going strong long after the 5th. You might be tempted to spend money given that you’re going to be killing it, but remember that saving is just as much of a win as splashing out on a new pair of shoes! Finally, the full moon in the last half of the month signals a resolution in one of your significant relationships.
As Venus is in your sign until the 17th, your more introspective phase is coming to a close. Get ready for a month of spreading your wings socially!
