August 2019 Horoscope
Happy Birthday, Leo: 7/23 – 8/22: You are approaching a crossroad and the decisions you make will affect your life permanently. Assess your current position as it relates to your progress over the last year and establish your priorities going forward. You are entering a new cycle, so wrap up the loose ends. Many of the current considerations are personal in nature and you may want to keep them to yourself as you build your credibility and reputation, but the need for personal and spiritual growth will guide your next steps.
Aries: 3/21 – 4/20: Although your personality is of a forceful nature right now, it is not the time to push your opinions or beliefs on others. Psychological shifts are occurring, and these are positive developments if you are receptive to another’s input. Expand and explore new territory both physically and mentally. This can change your perception and perspective of what you can have and what you have to offer others.
Taurus: 4/21 – 5/21: You have the energetic footprint to attract the right people into your life and into your workplace. If you own your own business, those that you have been looking for are appearing almost magically. You will be perceived in a positive light by those whom you wish to please so you can expect good results to your bottom line now. Your reputation is enhanced, and you will be well received in any environment. Take advantage of these unique opportunities.
Gemini: 5/22 – 6/21: You have been working diligently and devotedly to achieve a goal. But check your focus to ensure that this success is advancing your dreams. It is likely that you have been promoting and achieving the dreams of a colleague or a mentor. After a reality check, you may need a shift of attention to something that will serve you better. Once you have determined the goals established are authentically yours you have a clear path to success.
Cancer: 6/22 – 7/22: Your need for seclusion will make it difficult to be sociable this month. Because you want to keep your inner dialogue to yourself, you must force yourself to accommodate other’s expectations. You can still carve out substantial time for alone time to enjoy some peace and quiet. If you are aware of the inner workings or this process and use the time for soul healing and recovery from energetic bombardment, this time will serve you well.
Virgo: 8/23 – 9/23: Your concerns about money and other resources require some quiet time to think through your new strategies. New ideas based on the results of past actions will orient you and help clarify your current values. Some changes have taken place this year that have shown that what once was important no longer has meaning. Spend time going deep to ensure that you are focused on what matters to you.
Libra: 9/24 – 10/23: As you are enjoying the summer and all the social aspects of it you will realize that your popularity brings responsibilities. People around you are looking to you for the element of fun and lightheartedness. You might be feeling so good and appreciated that you sign up for something that requires more effort than first thought. If you keep an eye on your commitments the pool party will be a blast.
Scorpio: 10/24 – 11/22: The changes happening for you are fundamental and long lasting. Family relationship dynamics will shift and so will your responsibilities and participation. There is a possibility that you may change your current residence or, at least, do significant renovation. If something needs repair or permanent replacement the situation will show itself now and there is no need to put it off. It will only get more costly.
Sagittarius: 11/23 – 12/21: A close developing relationship can open the door to a beneficial undertaking that allows free expression and authentic communication. This will help you expand your views of the world and your expectations of your closest and most important friends and colleagues. Your belief and trust in their abilities will bring out the best in them and uncover hidden potentials. You will be giving them a great gift.
Capricorn: 12/22 – 1/20: You must prepare for big things and this requires a period of tweaking and dealing with unexpected opportunities and obstacles. This time will prepare you for a more visible situation to come. Make mistakes in private, out of the public eye. Later, when you are elevated to a higher position, everyone will be watching. Learn how to deal with your blunders now.
Aquarius: 1/21 – 2/19: An unconventional relationship or a person who is a little off the beam can cause discord in your relationships if it is not currently stable. Any situation that is on shaky ground can undergo significant changes. Even those stable ones probably need a little update and clarification. Boredom can be the culprit, but the current timing may not need to end your partnership.
Pisces: 2/20 – 3/20: You are in a period of transition and it is a process not an event. Pay attention to what is happening around you so you can respond to the issue. If you get distracted, you can wind up solving a problem that doesn’t exist. Also, this is a time when you are tied to a situation you would prefer to abandon, but you are trapped, probably because agreements of the past make it difficult to untangle. Do what must to be done and then get out.
