Aries: August

It’s all about the younger generation in August. Your son and/or daughter. The godchildren or nieces. Your nephews, stepchildren or grandchildren. We have a lot of Leo weather in August and this is about the Fifth House of your horoscope, ruled by the zodiac sign of Leo, the King and Queen of the jungle, with their cubs. You will be thrilled – overjoyed – with what comes to pass as you realise it is the children or young people who matter most. They need to be happy and they will be, if you think about the holiday home, the house, the apartment, the temporary apartment, the local parks or protected forest/wilderness/woods as theirs. Of course, you and your former, current or potential partner are in there too – or a close friend or family member. Yet, it is about the young in August.

You have Jupiter, the planet of blessings, in your zone of intimacy and property – close relationships and the good life – for the first time in 12 years. He makes strong patterns in your Eighth House (holiday homes, land, apartments) which work well with the rest of your chart now. Dates to watch for developing Leo weather include the 11th, 17th, 19th, 27th and 30th (allow 24 hours either side for your time zone as astrology time is London time). You also have some interesting questions to answer about the legacy you are going to leave to the next generation. August 2018 is joyous but where do you all head next? What is the plan? I mention this because we have some karma taking place at the moment in your chart, Aries. We have the North Node in Leo, in the Fifth House of heirs and spares. This is where we find you guiding, influencing or mentoring younger people – your own or others’ children. A great deal of what is going on is karmic reward. You have earned some good outcomes for these younger faces in your life, either years ago or many lifetimes ago. You are Queen or King to a younger court at the moment.

Aries, this is not a straightforward situation. You may all go backwards and forwards, or even get stuck in a moment in time. The Leo zone of your chart is crossed by an eclipse and also Mercury going backwards and forwards. From the outside this looks terrific – the right younger faces, the right place – at the right time – and the right kind of atmosphere. Yet, it may take you some time to navigate as well. The other issue here is the ultimate return of the North Node (more karma) to Cancer, the sign which rules the house, the holiday home, the garden, the land, the apartment – and the extended family. Much of what happens in August is an invitation to you, to build for the future. 2019 is not that far away. What can you do with what is there? The mood, the atmosphere, the place, the faces? It could have a great long-term outcome in terms of this special place, or these special people –  but you are going to have to move beyond basic August 2018 feelgood factors and really think about the future.

taurus

Taurus: August

Pisces weather in your horoscope is about friends, acquaintances and the group – that rather fascinating collection of people where there are no boundaries. You will spend August, as a grounded and down-to-earth Taurus, figuring out how to fit this into your life. Do you lose the plot and plunge into this other world? Do you walk away, shaking your head? Maybe you just need to put your toes in the water rather than plunge in. One person in particular, who may have the Sun in Pisces (born February-March) or a strong Pisces chart signature, is likely to tempt you further. He is intriguing, not remotely of this world, open to the mysteries of life, art, culture and science – and has something genuine to offer you. Taurus, you might even call this solid gold. The issue for you is likely to be that he is so far removed from what you know and trust that it can all feel a little confronting. Yet, there is always something to gain from a Neptune transit in Pisces and perhaps you can set boundaries. Contain and control the experience so that you don’t lose yourself in this group, where everybody is all over the place, all the time! A classic example would be a music festival where you are invited to enter into band world for a time. Another example might be aspects of the New Age which are offbeat, yet strangely alluring to you.

If we’re going to look at specific dates here, the Jupiter-Neptune trine on Sunday 19th August is the stand-out. Jupiter is about opportunities, expansion, growth and ‘more is better.’ Here we see this planet making a stunning, flowing pattern with Neptune, which always opens the gate to other ways of living and experiencing life. Sometimes it’s just about the alcohol and the company – it can be that basic. Sometimes it’s more profound, so you find yourself with a Quantum Mechanics student who wants you to enter into the Multiverse with him! Jupiter in Scorpio is very much about potential relationships so if you qualify for that, one particular man might be up for an experiment with you. In most cases, though, you are going to feel the Neptune in Pisces side of this cycle, which is very much about making new friends, getting to know old friends better – and getting ‘in the swim’ with a particular society, community, band, political party, charity and so on. If ever a situation needed nets, warning flags, rules, a light house and anchor though – this is it. You could so easily end up over your head, Taurus.

gemini

Gemini: August

The great thing about having experienced Uranus (space, freedom, excitement) in Aries (friends, groups) for so many years is the build-up. This long cycle has given you a luxuriously long time to develop the friendships between yourself and others in this circle and work towards something really special. In fact, Uranus is the planet of new beginnings – new chapters – and as you have been working towards an outcome with these people for some time, August should find you celebrating. There is another reason for this. Chiron in Aries in your Eleventh House of networks, communities, collaboration and co-operation has also encouraged you to get away with things! So, there has been a remarkable lack of fear or inhibition about what you all think is possible. This is rather like Bananarama waking up to find themselves with a hit single in the Eighties. Their song, ‘It Ain’t What You Do (It’s The Way That You Do It) with the Fun Boy Three says it all. Even though you and your friends are dramatically different people in every day, what binds you together is the thrill of the attempt. In August it looks as though you’ll pull it off.

The only point to note in your horoscope for August is the long-term potential of what is all around you. Don’t get so lost in the moment of mutual congratulation and closeness that you forget what is there, to be used for the future. It’s rather like celebrating a team effort at the Royal Hobart Show and forgetting that while your prize-winning jam just got first place, the harvest of berries all around you is being neglected. Where is next year’s jam? Gemini, I hope you can read this into your situation. This unusual circle of people is very special because it has taught you how to make change, and chase change, without cramping each other’s style. You are in the unique position of being able to give each other tons of space and room to move and that is what has made you all so successful. Yet – if you want more ‘jam’ in 2019 as that Uranus cycle continues back into this friendship and group zone, you will need to use what you’ve got – and quickly, too.

cancer

Cancer: August

Money! Cancer, with the huge amount of Leo weather now sweeping your horoscope, the Second House of your chart, where you deal with charity, business, banks, cryptocurrency, shares, possessions and the rest – you have big decisions to make. There is obviously an ambition in the background. Your personal Mount Everest, which you know is always there. With the right kind of deal or trade-off you might be able to shorten the distance between yourself and that towering, tempting achievement. You have Uranus backtracking over the top of your chart until early 2019 and that is where we find your mission and path – at the very highest level. Is it really so impossible to get there in terms of your status in life or success? Perhaps not, if a certain sum of money can be put to that particular use.

Cancer, there is a more urgent need for immediate results, though. This is not the far-off mountain top of supreme achievement or status in the world. It’s a lot closer and more accessible. We might call this unfinished business, in terms of work. The reason it’s unfinished is simply that Uranus has gone out of Aries but will soon be back into that sign. So, he is not finished there, and as this sign rules your career, university degree or unpaid work, you should be looking at what is half-done. This is also where a good investment could be made.

The trick with August is to understand what a dollar, pound or euro is actually worth, both to you and other people. This month is about evaluating what a deal, trade, sale, purchase or transaction actually translates into – in terms of what money cannot buy. You cannot just hold money in your hands like some kind of sacred object, any more than the other person can! It is there to be used. It changes its own value day to day, depending on the share markets and even on simple currency exchange. Seldom has there been a more important month to really look at what an amount is worth in real terms – to you, him, her – and in terms of the wider picture of your immediate, high-potential achievements as well as the lofty, distant ones.

leo

Leo: August

How are you to meet someone halfway on an important project or idea, with so much potential? There are a few issues here about who is King or Queen in the relationship. We have quite a lot of Leo weather at the moment and Leo is about the person sitting on the throne, wearing the crown. Is it you, or is it the man with the brainwave? Figuring out status is crucial as this plan could be incredibly successful given enough time, space, care, thought and luck.

As early as Wednesday 8th August when Venus in Libra in your Third House of ideas, opposes Chiron in Aries, in your Ninth House of big concepts, you see the issue. Venus opposes Salacia also in these same chart zones on Friday 10th August and then on Saturday 11th August, Minerva in Aries in your Ninth House of potentially world-beating ideas, also stations retrograde. This means she stands still. Leo, I think that August 7th-12th is going to be crucial to success with this man. He needs to meet you halfway. You need to meet him halfway! That is what Venus in your zone of communication, the worldwide web, publishing, education, academia and multimedia is all about. It’s a duet or balancing act. You need to negotiate something that is a win-win at this time.

On Saturday 18th August, Diana – an important asteroid and daughter of Jupiter – stands still in your chart. Whenever this happens it’s like having someone hammer the point home, again and again. Essentially, you two need to co-operate and collaborate to make sure this potentially special plan takes hold and becomes a success. Yet, Diana reminds you of the need for space, respect for other people’s space, and understanding on both sides. Maybe that is why this man has been so hesitant in August. Nobody is quite sure about where the land lies between you.

This same chart zone ruled by Aries is about taking brilliant brainwaves to new areas where they can thrive. This means thinking about another city or country, as this project needs to be transplanted (and in fact planted) before it starts to fall apart. On Sunday 19th August the asteroid Aesculapia stations retrograde here. He stands still. Again, this is like having the point hammered home. Not only do you two have to work together nicely, you also have to find the right location for the project – ‘placing’ it properly. As Aesculapia is about coming back from the point of no return, it is very likely that there will be a comeback, resurrection, rebirth or eleventh hour rescue near Sunday 19th August. On Tuesday 21st, Venus (relationships, co-operation, compromise, duets, double acts, partnerships, pairs) is opposite Minerva, again in this same chart zone of yours. So, I would call August 18th through 22nd as the last chance you have in August to really get serious about making this work together. Did you know that in 2019 this could be big? That year, Jupiter the planet of expansion, opportunity and growth makes beautiful angles to your Third House of communication, information and the internet – and your Ninth House of big-picture plans. Even though I realise meeting this man halfway will be an effort for you, with many questions about status and position – it is worth it for him and for you. Make it so.

virgo

Virgo: August

The Eighth House of your horoscope is all about your extended family – the ancestors – and the way their destiny affects yours too. We talk about inheritance when we come to cycles in this house of your chart. The Eighth House, ruled by Aries, is associated with the last will and testament and legacies in general. Of course, there are many different ways of leaving a legacy. You can pass on your skills, contacts, talents, beliefs, philosophies and the rest to a younger generation. We now come to quite a mysterious cycle in your life when the planet Uranus, a symbol of new beginnings, independence day and freedom, goes in and out of this zone of your chart. At the same time, Chiron has just moved in, and this represents quite an important landmark for the family.

It’s rather like being Prince Harry and realizing that you have a family tree with longer, deeper roots than you ever knew and seeing how a connection between great-grandparents and other ancestors can be made – in your life here and now. There is a sense of continuity for you in August, Virgo. It may be the influence of karma, as the North Node is in the most ‘invisible’ part of your chart. Hence the mystery. The North Node is about what we owe past generations and what they owe us. When it moves like this through an area of your horoscope where nobody can really see what is going on, there is usually a lot of activity on the other side of life. I am writing these words in a shed in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s garden – his former home in London. He was a tremendous spiritualist and believed firmly that the soul continued after the body had gone. The message I am getting for you in August is that nobody and nothing in your extended family tree ever really vanished! There is legacy of karma going in both directions and whatever happens in August feels like liberation day. A rebirth or awakening. The next big step for some faces in the family tree, partly as a result of what comes to pass for you in the real world. Of course, on a more prosaic note, this may be the practical impact of a sum of money, possessions or a property which has been left to you. The chances are higher, though, that this is some kind of spiritual, psychological or ‘soul’ legacy.

libra

Libra: August

Leo weather is here and it is really about your friends and the group you belong to. Are you involved with a Taurus friend or another Libra companion? This would make sense as you are experiencing similar/the same cycles. Libra, you only have the North Node of karma in this zone of your chart quite rarely. In fact, it has been 19 years since you saw this cycle. For many people born under your sign, what goes down in August (and it will be joyous; a karmic reward) will have a direct connection with all you did at the turn of the New Millennium. That sounds like the most old-fashioned phrase now, but you did your time, and paid your dues, as we left 1999 behind and went towards 2000 and 2001. Now, in August 2018, there is a karmic payback for that. In fact, you and the others have been working towards something special for quite a long time and the more you have poured into it, the more your cup will runneth over.

The North Node in the sign of Leo is also opposed by the South Node in Aquarius, the sign which rules circles and communities of people. They work together in your chart so there are big messages here about sharing the glory – you are all Queen or King of a situation – as Leo is very much about who rules. At the same time Aquarius is about everybody pooling resources and joining in for a common purpose or goal and there can be no differences in status, or anything else. Aquarius is about tolerance, space and room to move for everybody in the pool. These tracks in your chart come together in the most enjoyable way in August, Libra, and as you are well known for your balancing acts and your ability to make things work between people, I dare say that your own ‘duet’ with one of the friends is behind the overall success. Or maybe you have guided two others in the circle towards balance. The only thing I would point out is that you have assets, resources, advantages and plus factors all around you, that you need to use. Do this quickly. Jupiter the planet of abundance will not be around in your zone of cash, property, business, charity and precious possessions forever.  See what you’ve got and start working it for a future harvest!

scorpio

Scorpio: August

The time has come to liberate yourself from a situation which restricts you, Scorpio. You must feel tied down at the moment, emotionally and psychologically. There is a good reason for this! Uranus, the planet of freedom and independence, is going backwards and forwards, in and out of two areas of your chart. Thus, you feel temporarily high and dry and precious autonomy and space must feel very far away.

This is an illusion. I know that you must feel quite vulnerable as you have been living with Uranus in your opposite sign of Taurus for some time. This has brought opposing forces, or opponents, or opposition of another kind. Yet, the time has also come to face who or what you feel has been against you or encircled you. It takes courage to do this but it will also be the making of you. Some things could hurt. That is absolutely true – yet what is the alternative? You cannot spend August continuing to feel so trapped. And the irony is, you are not trapped at all. Oh, it would take a fair bit of determination to see the process through, but once you use what you fear could hurt you, to set yourself free, you will be up, over and out. From there you can shake yourself back into a word where all things are possible. Travel. A different house, apartment or holiday home. New possibilities around your region or even further away. The right to explore and ‘roam if you want to’ to quote the B52’s is yours! You must know this. You have a lot of astrological weather in areas of your chart which are about travel and also relocation, through to 2019 and the only thing stopping you is yourself.

Liberate yourself with Uranus in Taurus by using who/what you feel has been against you, to set yourself free. A lot of this is about seeing clearly. At the moment, a series of eclipses has blinded you to the truth of your situation. Scorpio is a fixed sign, tremendously determined and powerful when she/he wants to be, and ruled by Pluto, you have unbelievable willpower. So, get to it. Surely you don’t want to stay blind to what might be out there for you, or stuck fast in this rigid situation left over from July? Sure, you have been a victim of the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. Maybe you would call it misfortune. Leave them behind. Don’t make them a prison for yourself. Take a deep breath and use this – really use it – and deal with it. Then you can see, and then you will be free.

sagittarius

Sagittarius: August

The focus in August is on work, money, success, status, people politics, business and ‘the system’ as a whole. Getting to grips with this and finding your way through will help you long-term. In fact, you need to understand what makes people tick, especially when they want so very much to be at the top. You have a lot of cycles taking place at the moment – heavy Saturn and powerful Pluto in Capricorn, the sign of the mountain goat who becomes C.E.O. or President or Manager. This is also the retired grandfather who is head of the dynasty! In your house of work, you are living with Uranus, the planet that always threatens change, because it makes personal freedom and independence such an issue, either for you or other people in your career, unpaid work sphere or university life. You tend to get a feeling of imminent lightning bolts and rolling storms with Uranus, as if something (or someone) has to give.

We are also entering Virgo Season so the Sun is moving up to the top of your chart, which is where you deal with your boss, client, colleague or competitor. It’s where you deal with your lecturer, professor or fellow student. Everything will be very clear – almost as if it was full-screen for the first time, in glorious technicolor. From here, you make choices. Those choices should really be made by trying to understand what makes people tick in this world, where ambition and status matter so much.

If we were talking about Hollywood we would be talking about Rupert Murdoch. He got to the top and stayed at the top. If we are talking about Tibet we would be thinking about a senior lama. If we are talking about the Freemasons then I’m sure you know the hierarchy! The fact is, not only do you gain by reading one person’s heart and mind in August, you also gain by understanding the structure. This may be government. Corporation. University. Big business. It has very little room at the top for the few who make it that far and an awful lot of room for people at the bottom. Getting a handle on one particular face in respect of this means getting a handle on the reality of the whole system and that’s going to help you a lot. You need to figure out where you stand, in relation to that towering structure. And also – what happens if things shake in a storm, any time by 2019? Because, with Uranus in your work sector, that’s really easy to imagine! Are you covered?

capricorn

Capricorn: August

You really need to reach for the world of books, education, academia, the Worldwide Web on MacBook Air, eBooks, audiobooks and all the rest. Capricorn, unless you reach for it and make it real, it always hovers as potential. An unpopped possibility. This may be the question of you taking on a part-time course to upgrade your professional skills. It may be a novel you need to finish or write. A film or television script that is always on your mind, though you never do anything about it. You get the picture. We have a lot of Pisces-Virgo weather in August ,and this triggers areas of your horoscope we associate with the written and spoken word. The big idea. The big learning or teaching experience. Be reassured that no matter if your interest is in the lecture circuit or extra qualifications, the presence of Neptune in Pisces is there for many years. These fascinating holidays from the real world are not going anywhere! Yet, it may be time to use the rather random nature of August, with all its highs and lows, its swings and roundabouts, to pursue a definite project.

The Sun in Virgo from the final week of August will show you who and what is there – perhaps only in the internet Cloud – maybe in the realms of your imagination or dreaming. All of this is possible, though. You have Neptune the planet of inspiration and escapism transiting your Third House of writing, reading, teaching, studying, multimedia, publishing and the worldwide web now. It’s your call. In fact, it is to this that you should turn, when you realise that life is absurd. August will make a comedian out of you, or a philosopher. You have to shrug and smile, really, as the wheel goes around and round, and the powerful little asteroid Fortuna is at work. Shakespeare associated her with blind chance and there is certainly a big element of that this month. It is designed to make you reach for what you would gain so much from! The only issue is choosing. You have a really intriguing selection of possible pathways, Capricorn, so consider each one carefully.

aquarius

Aquarius: August

You are ruled by Uranus, a planet associated with freedom from slavery, independence from control and revolution. This planet was found in 1781 when America shook free of Great Britain. In that same year, Mum Betts, a black slave, took her white master to court and won. Also, that year, a musician called William Herschel found the planet Uranus and liberated astrologers from having to work with a horoscope system that had been stuck in the Middle Ages – since the Middle Ages! Aquarius, I hope you are getting the drift with your August astrology. This is your planet. It explains why you go through periodic revolutions in your life when you break with the past and pursue the new. If you are true to your sign, then you will have done this to the extent where your life is almost like a separate series of books, each one very different from the last.

Well, the story continues in August. I realise that you have been nailed, or hammered (to coin a phrase) by situations or people which you feel are potentially still very painful to deal with. You may have been under actual attack on some level, as sometimes happens with the North Node in Leo, your opposite sign. No matter what you have been dealing with, you are now at a point where you can break free. It begins by admitting that you can’t see. Who on earth could see anything after all the eclipses we have been experiencing across the Leo-Aquarius axis of your chart? Eclipses conceal they never reveal. History tells us eclipses cover things up. They mask them. They obscure them. Because you have been so personally affected, you are now at a point where you are living on imagination, guesswork and not much else.

August is about facing your fear and loathing and using it. Put it to practical use to set yourself free. Don’t just stay stuck. Take a risk and see what happens when you expose yourself to the sharp edges of who/what you still feel surrounds you so much. It is those sharp edges which will help you get rid of what traps, restricts and confines you. Then you can set yourself free, by allowing yourself to see. Actually, this goes beyond allowing yourself – it is really about getting rid of what has obscured the truth, the reality and the clarity for so long. 2019 is calling you. There is an awful lot to explore and quite a few adventures to be had. Why on earth stay trapped when Uranus is at work on your behalf in August?

pisces

Pisces: August

Rest, repair and recovery are required, Pisces. When you are ready to resurrect, you can turn to a very special parent-child relationship (or similar – teacher and student, perhaps) and enjoy a very different kind of life. I am sure you know that you have Neptune in Pisces, your own zodiac sign. I often talk about what this means in terms of your image, body, wardrobe, profile, appearance and ‘armor.’ Then there the names, labels or titles that matter so much when you have your chart ruler in your own sign. People make judgements. You, perhaps, judge yourself on this basis. Every so often, you hit a cycle when you reincarnate like Dr. Who. This is one of those cycles. When you are good and ready in August, you will be free to reach for something that can become part of your picture in life – just as much as you can become part of it too. This may be about your godson, goddaughter, niece, nephew, grandchild or stepchild. It may be about children, per se, as you are involved in paid or unpaid efforts with younger faces – or you could be.

At first glance this seems to be about you. You need time to recuperate over every situation and every person which has been against you. This awareness of opponents and opposition, particularly in your past, comes with the Sun in Virgo, your opposite sign, as the month ends. There is a spotlight on all that you have suffered, no matter if you have been needled by people, axed by them or otherwise found yourself on the sharp end of destiny. You are a sensitive soul and you need to get over this, no matter how long ago it happened. That is really what August is all about. The Neptune cycle in your house of ‘Me’ encourages you to lose another mask, role or pigeonhole. The powerful asteroid Apollo in the maternal sign of Cancer asks you to see just how brilliant a very different kind of future could be. Do you want to have a child? Do you want to marry someone who has children from a previous marriage? Do you have visions for your son right now? Do you want to work on a project involving a younger generation? What about grandchildren? The specifics depend on your personal birth chart but with the North Node (karma) in Cancer, the parenthood and family sign, just around the corner in November – this is not an impossible dream.

aries

Aries: August

It’s all about the younger generation in August. Your son and/or daughter. The godchildren or nieces. Your nephews, stepchildren or grandchildren. We have a lot of Leo weather in August and this is about the Fifth House of your horoscope, ruled by the zodiac sign of Leo, the King and Queen of the jungle, with their cubs. You will be thrilled – overjoyed – with what comes to pass as you realise it is the children or young people who matter most. They need to be happy and they will be, if you think about the holiday home, the house, the apartment, the temporary apartment, the local parks or protected forest/wilderness/woods as theirs. Of course, you and your former, current or potential partner are in there too – or a close friend or family member. Yet, it is about the young in August.

You have Jupiter, the planet of blessings, in your zone of intimacy and property – close relationships and the good life – for the first time in 12 years. He makes strong patterns in your Eighth House (holiday homes, land, apartments) which work well with the rest of your chart now. Dates to watch for developing Leo weather include the 11th, 17th, 19th, 27th and 30th (allow 24 hours either side for your time zone as astrology time is London time). You also have some interesting questions to answer about the legacy you are going to leave to the next generation. August 2018 is joyous but where do you all head next? What is the plan? I mention this because we have some karma taking place at the moment in your chart, Aries. We have the North Node in Leo, in the Fifth House of heirs and spares. This is where we find you guiding, influencing or mentoring younger people – your own or others’ children. A great deal of what is going on is karmic reward. You have earned some good outcomes for these younger faces in your life, either years ago or many lifetimes ago. You are Queen or King to a younger court at the moment.

Aries, this is not a straightforward situation. You may all go backwards and forwards, or even get stuck in a moment in time. The Leo zone of your chart is crossed by an eclipse and also Mercury going backwards and forwards. From the outside this looks terrific – the right younger faces, the right place – at the right time – and the right kind of atmosphere. Yet, it may take you some time to navigate as well. The other issue here is the ultimate return of the North Node (more karma) to Cancer, the sign which rules the house, the holiday home, the garden, the land, the apartment – and the extended family. Much of what happens in August is an invitation to you, to build for the future. 2019 is not that far away. What can you do with what is there? The mood, the atmosphere, the place, the faces? It could have a great long-term outcome in terms of this special place, or these special people –  but you are going to have to move beyond basic August 2018 feelgood factors and really think about the future.

taurus

Taurus: August

Pisces weather in your horoscope is about friends, acquaintances and the group – that rather fascinating collection of people where there are no boundaries. You will spend August, as a grounded and down-to-earth Taurus, figuring out how to fit this into your life. Do you lose the plot and plunge into this other world? Do you walk away, shaking your head? Maybe you just need to put your toes in the water rather than plunge in. One person in particular, who may have the Sun in Pisces (born February-March) or a strong Pisces chart signature, is likely to tempt you further. He is intriguing, not remotely of this world, open to the mysteries of life, art, culture and science – and has something genuine to offer you. Taurus, you might even call this solid gold. The issue for you is likely to be that he is so far removed from what you know and trust that it can all feel a little confronting. Yet, there is always something to gain from a Neptune transit in Pisces and perhaps you can set boundaries. Contain and control the experience so that you don’t lose yourself in this group, where everybody is all over the place, all the time! A classic example would be a music festival where you are invited to enter into band world for a time. Another example might be aspects of the New Age which are offbeat, yet strangely alluring to you.

If we’re going to look at specific dates here, the Jupiter-Neptune trine on Sunday 19th August is the stand-out. Jupiter is about opportunities, expansion, growth and ‘more is better.’ Here we see this planet making a stunning, flowing pattern with Neptune, which always opens the gate to other ways of living and experiencing life. Sometimes it’s just about the alcohol and the company – it can be that basic. Sometimes it’s more profound, so you find yourself with a Quantum Mechanics student who wants you to enter into the Multiverse with him! Jupiter in Scorpio is very much about potential relationships so if you qualify for that, one particular man might be up for an experiment with you. In most cases, though, you are going to feel the Neptune in Pisces side of this cycle, which is very much about making new friends, getting to know old friends better – and getting ‘in the swim’ with a particular society, community, band, political party, charity and so on. If ever a situation needed nets, warning flags, rules, a light house and anchor though – this is it. You could so easily end up over your head, Taurus.

gemini

Gemini: August

The great thing about having experienced Uranus (space, freedom, excitement) in Aries (friends, groups) for so many years is the build-up. This long cycle has given you a luxuriously long time to develop the friendships between yourself and others in this circle and work towards something really special. In fact, Uranus is the planet of new beginnings – new chapters – and as you have been working towards an outcome with these people for some time, August should find you celebrating. There is another reason for this. Chiron in Aries in your Eleventh House of networks, communities, collaboration and co-operation has also encouraged you to get away with things! So, there has been a remarkable lack of fear or inhibition about what you all think is possible. This is rather like Bananarama waking up to find themselves with a hit single in the Eighties. Their song, ‘It Ain’t What You Do (It’s The Way That You Do It) with the Fun Boy Three says it all. Even though you and your friends are dramatically different people in every day, what binds you together is the thrill of the attempt. In August it looks as though you’ll pull it off.

The only point to note in your horoscope for August is the long-term potential of what is all around you. Don’t get so lost in the moment of mutual congratulation and closeness that you forget what is there, to be used for the future. It’s rather like celebrating a team effort at the Royal Hobart Show and forgetting that while your prize-winning jam just got first place, the harvest of berries all around you is being neglected. Where is next year’s jam? Gemini, I hope you can read this into your situation. This unusual circle of people is very special because it has taught you how to make change, and chase change, without cramping each other’s style. You are in the unique position of being able to give each other tons of space and room to move and that is what has made you all so successful. Yet – if you want more ‘jam’ in 2019 as that Uranus cycle continues back into this friendship and group zone, you will need to use what you’ve got – and quickly, too.

cancer

Cancer: August

Money! Cancer, with the huge amount of Leo weather now sweeping your horoscope, the Second House of your chart, where you deal with charity, business, banks, cryptocurrency, shares, possessions and the rest – you have big decisions to make. There is obviously an ambition in the background. Your personal Mount Everest, which you know is always there. With the right kind of deal or trade-off you might be able to shorten the distance between yourself and that towering, tempting achievement. You have Uranus backtracking over the top of your chart until early 2019 and that is where we find your mission and path – at the very highest level. Is it really so impossible to get there in terms of your status in life or success? Perhaps not, if a certain sum of money can be put to that particular use.

Cancer, there is a more urgent need for immediate results, though. This is not the far-off mountain top of supreme achievement or status in the world. It’s a lot closer and more accessible. We might call this unfinished business, in terms of work. The reason it’s unfinished is simply that Uranus has gone out of Aries but will soon be back into that sign. So, he is not finished there, and as this sign rules your career, university degree or unpaid work, you should be looking at what is half-done. This is also where a good investment could be made.

The trick with August is to understand what a dollar, pound or euro is actually worth, both to you and other people. This month is about evaluating what a deal, trade, sale, purchase or transaction actually translates into – in terms of what money cannot buy. You cannot just hold money in your hands like some kind of sacred object, any more than the other person can! It is there to be used. It changes its own value day to day, depending on the share markets and even on simple currency exchange. Seldom has there been a more important month to really look at what an amount is worth in real terms – to you, him, her – and in terms of the wider picture of your immediate, high-potential achievements as well as the lofty, distant ones.

leo

Leo: August

How are you to meet someone halfway on an important project or idea, with so much potential? There are a few issues here about who is King or Queen in the relationship. We have quite a lot of Leo weather at the moment and Leo is about the person sitting on the throne, wearing the crown. Is it you, or is it the man with the brainwave? Figuring out status is crucial as this plan could be incredibly successful given enough time, space, care, thought and luck.

As early as Wednesday 8th August when Venus in Libra in your Third House of ideas, opposes Chiron in Aries, in your Ninth House of big concepts, you see the issue. Venus opposes Salacia also in these same chart zones on Friday 10th August and then on Saturday 11th August, Minerva in Aries in your Ninth House of potentially world-beating ideas, also stations retrograde. This means she stands still. Leo, I think that August 7th-12th is going to be crucial to success with this man. He needs to meet you halfway. You need to meet him halfway! That is what Venus in your zone of communication, the worldwide web, publishing, education, academia and multimedia is all about. It’s a duet or balancing act. You need to negotiate something that is a win-win at this time.

On Saturday 18th August, Diana – an important asteroid and daughter of Jupiter – stands still in your chart. Whenever this happens it’s like having someone hammer the point home, again and again. Essentially, you two need to co-operate and collaborate to make sure this potentially special plan takes hold and becomes a success. Yet, Diana reminds you of the need for space, respect for other people’s space, and understanding on both sides. Maybe that is why this man has been so hesitant in August. Nobody is quite sure about where the land lies between you.

This same chart zone ruled by Aries is about taking brilliant brainwaves to new areas where they can thrive. This means thinking about another city or country, as this project needs to be transplanted (and in fact planted) before it starts to fall apart. On Sunday 19th August the asteroid Aesculapia stations retrograde here. He stands still. Again, this is like having the point hammered home. Not only do you two have to work together nicely, you also have to find the right location for the project – ‘placing’ it properly. As Aesculapia is about coming back from the point of no return, it is very likely that there will be a comeback, resurrection, rebirth or eleventh hour rescue near Sunday 19th August. On Tuesday 21st, Venus (relationships, co-operation, compromise, duets, double acts, partnerships, pairs) is opposite Minerva, again in this same chart zone of yours. So, I would call August 18th through 22nd as the last chance you have in August to really get serious about making this work together. Did you know that in 2019 this could be big? That year, Jupiter the planet of expansion, opportunity and growth makes beautiful angles to your Third House of communication, information and the internet – and your Ninth House of big-picture plans. Even though I realise meeting this man halfway will be an effort for you, with many questions about status and position – it is worth it for him and for you. Make it so.

virgo

Virgo: August

The Eighth House of your horoscope is all about your extended family – the ancestors – and the way their destiny affects yours too. We talk about inheritance when we come to cycles in this house of your chart. The Eighth House, ruled by Aries, is associated with the last will and testament and legacies in general. Of course, there are many different ways of leaving a legacy. You can pass on your skills, contacts, talents, beliefs, philosophies and the rest to a younger generation. We now come to quite a mysterious cycle in your life when the planet Uranus, a symbol of new beginnings, independence day and freedom, goes in and out of this zone of your chart. At the same time, Chiron has just moved in, and this represents quite an important landmark for the family.

It’s rather like being Prince Harry and realizing that you have a family tree with longer, deeper roots than you ever knew and seeing how a connection between great-grandparents and other ancestors can be made – in your life here and now. There is a sense of continuity for you in August, Virgo. It may be the influence of karma, as the North Node is in the most ‘invisible’ part of your chart. Hence the mystery. The North Node is about what we owe past generations and what they owe us. When it moves like this through an area of your horoscope where nobody can really see what is going on, there is usually a lot of activity on the other side of life. I am writing these words in a shed in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s garden – his former home in London. He was a tremendous spiritualist and believed firmly that the soul continued after the body had gone. The message I am getting for you in August is that nobody and nothing in your extended family tree ever really vanished! There is legacy of karma going in both directions and whatever happens in August feels like liberation day. A rebirth or awakening. The next big step for some faces in the family tree, partly as a result of what comes to pass for you in the real world. Of course, on a more prosaic note, this may be the practical impact of a sum of money, possessions or a property which has been left to you. The chances are higher, though, that this is some kind of spiritual, psychological or ‘soul’ legacy.

libra

Libra: August

Leo weather is here and it is really about your friends and the group you belong to. Are you involved with a Taurus friend or another Libra companion? This would make sense as you are experiencing similar/the same cycles. Libra, you only have the North Node of karma in this zone of your chart quite rarely. In fact, it has been 19 years since you saw this cycle. For many people born under your sign, what goes down in August (and it will be joyous; a karmic reward) will have a direct connection with all you did at the turn of the New Millennium. That sounds like the most old-fashioned phrase now, but you did your time, and paid your dues, as we left 1999 behind and went towards 2000 and 2001. Now, in August 2018, there is a karmic payback for that. In fact, you and the others have been working towards something special for quite a long time and the more you have poured into it, the more your cup will runneth over.

The North Node in the sign of Leo is also opposed by the South Node in Aquarius, the sign which rules circles and communities of people. They work together in your chart so there are big messages here about sharing the glory – you are all Queen or King of a situation – as Leo is very much about who rules. At the same time Aquarius is about everybody pooling resources and joining in for a common purpose or goal and there can be no differences in status, or anything else. Aquarius is about tolerance, space and room to move for everybody in the pool. These tracks in your chart come together in the most enjoyable way in August, Libra, and as you are well known for your balancing acts and your ability to make things work between people, I dare say that your own ‘duet’ with one of the friends is behind the overall success. Or maybe you have guided two others in the circle towards balance. The only thing I would point out is that you have assets, resources, advantages and plus factors all around you, that you need to use. Do this quickly. Jupiter the planet of abundance will not be around in your zone of cash, property, business, charity and precious possessions forever.  See what you’ve got and start working it for a future harvest!

scorpio

Scorpio: August

The time has come to liberate yourself from a situation which restricts you, Scorpio. You must feel tied down at the moment, emotionally and psychologically. There is a good reason for this! Uranus, the planet of freedom and independence, is going backwards and forwards, in and out of two areas of your chart. Thus, you feel temporarily high and dry and precious autonomy and space must feel very far away.

This is an illusion. I know that you must feel quite vulnerable as you have been living with Uranus in your opposite sign of Taurus for some time. This has brought opposing forces, or opponents, or opposition of another kind. Yet, the time has also come to face who or what you feel has been against you or encircled you. It takes courage to do this but it will also be the making of you. Some things could hurt. That is absolutely true – yet what is the alternative? You cannot spend August continuing to feel so trapped. And the irony is, you are not trapped at all. Oh, it would take a fair bit of determination to see the process through, but once you use what you fear could hurt you, to set yourself free, you will be up, over and out. From there you can shake yourself back into a word where all things are possible. Travel. A different house, apartment or holiday home. New possibilities around your region or even further away. The right to explore and ‘roam if you want to’ to quote the B52’s is yours! You must know this. You have a lot of astrological weather in areas of your chart which are about travel and also relocation, through to 2019 and the only thing stopping you is yourself.

Liberate yourself with Uranus in Taurus by using who/what you feel has been against you, to set yourself free. A lot of this is about seeing clearly. At the moment, a series of eclipses has blinded you to the truth of your situation. Scorpio is a fixed sign, tremendously determined and powerful when she/he wants to be, and ruled by Pluto, you have unbelievable willpower. So, get to it. Surely you don’t want to stay blind to what might be out there for you, or stuck fast in this rigid situation left over from July? Sure, you have been a victim of the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. Maybe you would call it misfortune. Leave them behind. Don’t make them a prison for yourself. Take a deep breath and use this – really use it – and deal with it. Then you can see, and then you will be free.

sagittarius

Sagittarius: August

The focus in August is on work, money, success, status, people politics, business and ‘the system’ as a whole. Getting to grips with this and finding your way through will help you long-term. In fact, you need to understand what makes people tick, especially when they want so very much to be at the top. You have a lot of cycles taking place at the moment – heavy Saturn and powerful Pluto in Capricorn, the sign of the mountain goat who becomes C.E.O. or President or Manager. This is also the retired grandfather who is head of the dynasty! In your house of work, you are living with Uranus, the planet that always threatens change, because it makes personal freedom and independence such an issue, either for you or other people in your career, unpaid work sphere or university life. You tend to get a feeling of imminent lightning bolts and rolling storms with Uranus, as if something (or someone) has to give.

We are also entering Virgo Season so the Sun is moving up to the top of your chart, which is where you deal with your boss, client, colleague or competitor. It’s where you deal with your lecturer, professor or fellow student. Everything will be very clear – almost as if it was full-screen for the first time, in glorious technicolor. From here, you make choices. Those choices should really be made by trying to understand what makes people tick in this world, where ambition and status matter so much.

If we were talking about Hollywood we would be talking about Rupert Murdoch. He got to the top and stayed at the top. If we are talking about Tibet we would be thinking about a senior lama. If we are talking about the Freemasons then I’m sure you know the hierarchy! The fact is, not only do you gain by reading one person’s heart and mind in August, you also gain by understanding the structure. This may be government. Corporation. University. Big business. It has very little room at the top for the few who make it that far and an awful lot of room for people at the bottom. Getting a handle on one particular face in respect of this means getting a handle on the reality of the whole system and that’s going to help you a lot. You need to figure out where you stand, in relation to that towering structure. And also – what happens if things shake in a storm, any time by 2019? Because, with Uranus in your work sector, that’s really easy to imagine! Are you covered?

capricorn

Capricorn: August

You really need to reach for the world of books, education, academia, the Worldwide Web on MacBook Air, eBooks, audiobooks and all the rest. Capricorn, unless you reach for it and make it real, it always hovers as potential. An unpopped possibility. This may be the question of you taking on a part-time course to upgrade your professional skills. It may be a novel you need to finish or write. A film or television script that is always on your mind, though you never do anything about it. You get the picture. We have a lot of Pisces-Virgo weather in August ,and this triggers areas of your horoscope we associate with the written and spoken word. The big idea. The big learning or teaching experience. Be reassured that no matter if your interest is in the lecture circuit or extra qualifications, the presence of Neptune in Pisces is there for many years. These fascinating holidays from the real world are not going anywhere! Yet, it may be time to use the rather random nature of August, with all its highs and lows, its swings and roundabouts, to pursue a definite project.

The Sun in Virgo from the final week of August will show you who and what is there – perhaps only in the internet Cloud – maybe in the realms of your imagination or dreaming. All of this is possible, though. You have Neptune the planet of inspiration and escapism transiting your Third House of writing, reading, teaching, studying, multimedia, publishing and the worldwide web now. It’s your call. In fact, it is to this that you should turn, when you realise that life is absurd. August will make a comedian out of you, or a philosopher. You have to shrug and smile, really, as the wheel goes around and round, and the powerful little asteroid Fortuna is at work. Shakespeare associated her with blind chance and there is certainly a big element of that this month. It is designed to make you reach for what you would gain so much from! The only issue is choosing. You have a really intriguing selection of possible pathways, Capricorn, so consider each one carefully.

aquarius

Aquarius: August

You are ruled by Uranus, a planet associated with freedom from slavery, independence from control and revolution. This planet was found in 1781 when America shook free of Great Britain. In that same year, Mum Betts, a black slave, took her white master to court and won. Also, that year, a musician called William Herschel found the planet Uranus and liberated astrologers from having to work with a horoscope system that had been stuck in the Middle Ages – since the Middle Ages! Aquarius, I hope you are getting the drift with your August astrology. This is your planet. It explains why you go through periodic revolutions in your life when you break with the past and pursue the new. If you are true to your sign, then you will have done this to the extent where your life is almost like a separate series of books, each one very different from the last.

Well, the story continues in August. I realise that you have been nailed, or hammered (to coin a phrase) by situations or people which you feel are potentially still very painful to deal with. You may have been under actual attack on some level, as sometimes happens with the North Node in Leo, your opposite sign. No matter what you have been dealing with, you are now at a point where you can break free. It begins by admitting that you can’t see. Who on earth could see anything after all the eclipses we have been experiencing across the Leo-Aquarius axis of your chart? Eclipses conceal they never reveal. History tells us eclipses cover things up. They mask them. They obscure them. Because you have been so personally affected, you are now at a point where you are living on imagination, guesswork and not much else.

August is about facing your fear and loathing and using it. Put it to practical use to set yourself free. Don’t just stay stuck. Take a risk and see what happens when you expose yourself to the sharp edges of who/what you still feel surrounds you so much. It is those sharp edges which will help you get rid of what traps, restricts and confines you. Then you can set yourself free, by allowing yourself to see. Actually, this goes beyond allowing yourself – it is really about getting rid of what has obscured the truth, the reality and the clarity for so long. 2019 is calling you. There is an awful lot to explore and quite a few adventures to be had. Why on earth stay trapped when Uranus is at work on your behalf in August?

pisces

Pisces: August

Rest, repair and recovery are required, Pisces. When you are ready to resurrect, you can turn to a very special parent-child relationship (or similar – teacher and student, perhaps) and enjoy a very different kind of life. I am sure you know that you have Neptune in Pisces, your own zodiac sign. I often talk about what this means in terms of your image, body, wardrobe, profile, appearance and ‘armor.’ Then there the names, labels or titles that matter so much when you have your chart ruler in your own sign. People make judgements. You, perhaps, judge yourself on this basis. Every so often, you hit a cycle when you reincarnate like Dr. Who. This is one of those cycles. When you are good and ready in August, you will be free to reach for something that can become part of your picture in life – just as much as you can become part of it too. This may be about your godson, goddaughter, niece, nephew, grandchild or stepchild. It may be about children, per se, as you are involved in paid or unpaid efforts with younger faces – or you could be.

At first glance this seems to be about you. You need time to recuperate over every situation and every person which has been against you. This awareness of opponents and opposition, particularly in your past, comes with the Sun in Virgo, your opposite sign, as the month ends. There is a spotlight on all that you have suffered, no matter if you have been needled by people, axed by them or otherwise found yourself on the sharp end of destiny. You are a sensitive soul and you need to get over this, no matter how long ago it happened. That is really what August is all about. The Neptune cycle in your house of ‘Me’ encourages you to lose another mask, role or pigeonhole. The powerful asteroid Apollo in the maternal sign of Cancer asks you to see just how brilliant a very different kind of future could be. Do you want to have a child? Do you want to marry someone who has children from a previous marriage? Do you have visions for your son right now? Do you want to work on a project involving a younger generation? What about grandchildren? The specifics depend on your personal birth chart but with the North Node (karma) in Cancer, the parenthood and family sign, just around the corner in November – this is not an impossible dream.

8 thoughts on “Your August 2018 Monthly Horoscope

  1. HELP Please…so I’m sooo confused. I finally got my resume together, and was going to start sending it out, now I don’t know what to do. Also, we’re possibly looking to move to a new home mid 2019, actually it’s more yes than no and because it’s a new development putting a down payment on the land to build would be coming. I’d be doing this with Al who is a Libra 10/22/64 Taurus Moon, Cap rising. I’m tired of feeling stuck, I’d love things to move along, progress. Not sure what to do. Thank you Jessica

    • Retrogrades hold things up so you can rehearse. We now have Mercury and Mars in retrograde motion and others too – so there is a backward pull, not a forward thrust. You can still do whatever you want to do (the sky doesn’t fall) but you may find you get held up, or have to change the original idea. New developments are always worth extra research, aren’t they? You can start cranking the wheels, but do so from a place where you can reverse if you need to, or just pause.

  2. I love the new look Jessica It looks so professional.

    Well, I have invested in getting some of my artwork framed. It was a shall I or shall I not moment for a few days. As it costs so much to do. Bust I see it as a good investment to help sell my art. Though scary for a newbie at the art galleries. I am praying it pays of and pays well.

    I have stopped writing, school holidays, weather and all that. Given up until September is that when Uranus is back in Aires, I wonder.

    Blessings
    Louisa

    • Thank you Louisa, I will pass that onto James, Justin, Jodi and Alyas. We have Mercury Retrograde in your Second House of sales now, so it may take a while for the artwork side of your life to deliver – Mercury does not leave its shadow until 3rd September. If you do make a sale, follow through the paperwork with more attention than usual as Mercury rules merchandise! I am sure you love creativity for its own sake, though.

  3. Hi Jessica,

    Thank goodness I stumbled across your site a few days ago. It’s packed full of such useful information, that I take up most of my day reading all your informative blog posts!
    Thank you so much.
    It is so interesting reading your explanations of what’s going on in the world, and what we can expect in 2020…

    I bought your book, 2020 Astrology as well, and am currently working my way through that. I don’t yet fully understand how to read my personal birth chart and all this talk of the Capricorn Effect has got me thinking.

    I have a question regarding my career, because in your Capricorn effect 2-part article, you say ‘Of all the signs most hit by The Capricorn Effect, on their career, it is Aries and Leo who will see the biggest changes.’

    I’ve been making a living through self-publishing for the past few years (writing romance), but have found it particularly challenging since the end of 2016.

    Writing fuels me and I’ve been able to support my family but lately I can’t seem to make as much headway with it, and I’m hoping you can shed some light on what I can expect in the coming years.

    I have:

    Sorry to give you most of the entire list…but I wasn’t sure what you would need.
    Thank you.

    • Thank you, I will pass that compliment onto James, Justin, Jodi and Alayas who are the brains behind the technical and design side of the website. Thank you also for buying the book – it does take a while to see astrology working and figure it out – but I hope you think it’s worth it. You are strongly Leo and your Sun, which rules Leo, is very close to Mercury, the sign of the writer. Thus, you are what you write – and what you write is you. Leo does rule the bedchamber and courtship so romance fiction of this type is one way to use your Leo side. An even better way is to write for children and teenagers. A third way is to teach others how to do it. This is all worth considering with your stellium in the Fifth House. In general, in your Leo Solar Sign chart, you are going through a revolution in your career which started in a small way in May and will take many years to complete. You are very likely to enter a different field and you may substantially change what you were doing, or even leave it behind one day, no matter how unlikely this may seem in 2018. Uranus in Taurus is here. It will be more obvious to you next year. Do have a look at children and teenage entertainment even if you’ve not done so before.

  4. What you say is very interesting. I loosely plotted out a YA teen/dystopian/fantasy series last month and I am gearing up to write it at the end of Aug/through Sept.
    Jul and Aug have been hard, and I haven’t been able to concentrate at all.
    But, yes, I have a new pen name in mind, and the teen series idea simmering in my mind all summer. So now, I think I’ll dive in headfirst and just get it done! I’ll keep the romance pen name going, because I really enjoy writing that, but it is formulaic, but I am excited about the fantasy/dystopian because there is so much i could write about (more action adventure).
    Thanks so much, Jessica!
