Your Ancient Symbol Card for August 3rd is Balance

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today


Balance denotes the benefits of keeping the use of your energies justifiably proportioned between your pursuits. The symbol Yin and Yang is used to represent the balance. Yin and Yang is possibly the most elegant and sometimes elusive definition of Balance there is. While Balance is rarely if ever perfect, being far out of Balance means that while one part of you may be thriving tremendously, another part of your life may be wilting.

As a daily card, Balance indicates a need to find and maintain a level physical and spiritual state. It suggest you may be concentrating your energy on one or a few things so much that you are neglecting other important aspects of your life. While this is often necessary to make immediate gains it can lead to missing out on the diverse richness of life in the long term.

Your Daily Witches Rune for August 3rd is The Wave

Daily Witches Rune

The Wave

Meaning: This rune symbolizes your friends and family and their influence upon you. Its meaning is usually derived from the other stones closest to it. This rune is also associated with travel. A journey abroad is indicated especially if the Sun rune is nearby, but a journey for someone close to you if the Moon stone is closest. If it is near to the Rings it foretells a holiday or long distance relationship.

Your Weekly Tarot Card Reading for August 1st





Your Weekly Tarot Card Reading for August 1st

A one-card reading gives you a glimpse at what’s coming

For the week of August 1, I chose the Knight of Pentacles, reversed!

The reversed Knight of Pentacles just can’t seem to get out of his rut and move forward. Perhaps he’s bored with the day-to-day routine but isn’t inspired enough to create change. Perhaps he’s fed up with a situation but is not willing to do things differently to shift the energy again. Or perhaps he’s just being lazy and unmotivated.

Think about how this reversed Knight might be playing out for you this week. Are you being stubborn and unwilling to move? Or are you feeling lazy or unmotivated? What is it going to take to get you out of your comfort zone and get the energy moving once again?

Prepare to change things up, break the routine and get creative as you get yourself out of this funk.

Ask yourself, “How can I break free of routine?”

Your Monthly Tarot Card Forecast: August 2016

Answering your inner calling

Hi, I’m Brigit, founder of Biddy Tarot, and this is the Monthly Tarot Card Forecast for August 2016. OK so I’ve drawn our cards for today, and I have Judgment reversed for our Blessings, I’ve got the Eight of Wands reversed for Challenges, and I’ve got the Eight of Cups reversed for our Outcome.

What we have here is we have three reversed cards. Now some people thing reversed cards mean all these problems are going to be coming up, or it’s a lot of negative energy, but I like to see reversed cards often in the frame of internalized energy — you’re actually focusing your energy on yourself.

And we also have two Eights here. Eights are often around mastery, and really getting into our skills and developing our skills. Let’s start with our Blessings for the month of August…

Blessings card: Judgment reversed

I have the Judgment card here. I really see this in the reversed position as kind of like an inner calling. You start to feel like something is emerging within you and something is calling to you, and you have a choice: you can listen to that call, or you can ignore it. The reason why people sometimes ignore that inner call, is because that call will often ask you to make big sacrifices in your life, and make some really, really tough decisions about what is truly important to you. You can see it as, “Wow, this is a sign that I’m slowly being drawn to a different path. So the Blessing this month is that there is an inner calling, but it’s really up to you as to whether you’re going to hear that inner calling and pay attention to it.

The World

Like The Sun, The World brings good blessings. The World appears where all is in balance. It allows you to act effectively not only as an individual but as a member of a group too. The World promises contentment, fulfillment and completeness to those under its influence. It doesn’t guarantee there will not be moments of strife or discord in your life, but it does indicate that your trials and tribulations will be overcome; that ultimately you will know inner-peace and contentment. The World suggests you have found or will find your place in our Universe—that place where all is as it should be.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, August 4th






Get A Jump On Tomorrow….

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, August 4th

by Rick Levine


General Horoscope

Complicated emotional dynamics set the stage for interpersonal drama today. We may find ourselves engaged in a power struggle as warrior Mars is dragged into the shadows by dark Pluto. Trust, or the lack of it, fuels our fears as we attempt to control irrational feelings. Meanwhile, the Moon shifts into analytical Virgo, urging us to favor logic over intuition. Nevertheless, we need to find comfort no matter where the current circumstances lead.

Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

You could feel resentful if someone railroads you into doing something against your will. Nevertheless, you’re ready to fight for what feels like your survival. In fact, it’s hard to bury your anger any longer while combative Mars packs a punch today. But be careful not to overreact; the stakes are considerable and you will likely emerge the winner as long as you take the high road. Acting for the good of all is more soul-satisfying than selfishly attempting to garner more power or wealth for yourself.

Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

You may be a bit thin-skinned today, even if everyone else seem tough as nails. Aggressive Mars creates a contentious connection with uncompromising Pluto that can turn a small disagreement into a serious quarrel. Nevertheless, your key planet Venus aligns with wounded Chiron, sensitizing you to the emotional vulnerability of others. Ideally, your delicate feelings give you the finesse to frame conflict in a loving light by establishing common ground as the basis of cooperation.

Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

You can see that something’s wrong with a relationship today and are ready to jump in and fix it. Although action-hero Mars is teaming up with penetrating Pluto, they have vastly different approaches to problem-solving. On one hand, you want to go for the quick solution. On the other hand, you’re driven to get to the underlying source of the conflict and handle it once and for all. Whichever route you choose, be cautious since you could stir up resistance from others. As with all Pluto aspects, acting for the common good brings more emotional satisfaction than just striving for personal success.

Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

A simple difference of opinion at work could grow into a major conflict today as militant Mars crosses swords with ruthless Pluto. Although you might think someone is bullying you, you could simply be caught in the crossfire between coworkers. If it’s not your personal battle, establish clear boundaries and get out of the way. Even with good intentions, your high ideals may not be appreciated when belief systems collide. Every time you subtract negative from your life you make room for more positive.

Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

You’re the recipient of an extra boost of energy as boisterous Mars drives you to accomplish more at work today. Thankfully, a stressful situation can remind you to handle a delicate issue that you previously dodged. But expecting too much change all at once may be unrealistic, so look at making minor adjustments that have lasting impact. As Confucius said, “The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”

Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

Maintaining a cool and calm approach helps you to manage an emotionally volatile situation today. Although you might not want to make compromises while being pressured by others, being rational is key to avoiding conflict. Practicing self-discipline and adopting a clear set of priorities empower you to promote your interests rather than getting sidetracked by someone else’s agenda. Thinking about your actions in advance helps you decide where to hang on and where to let go.

Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

You are a pro at finding your way back to center when the storms of change are swirling around you. Nevertheless, it’s challenging to stand back from the intensity as different points of view clash around you now. An anxious aspect between aggressive Mars and relentless Pluto can tempt you to engage in an unnecessary power struggle before reaching your goal. Paying close attention to the interpersonal dynamics and your own emotional well-being enables you to moderate your energy so you don’t exhaust yourself in the process.

Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

Rather than getting caught up in an unwinnable struggle, focus on what you can do to positively influence long-term events. An internal conflict between your need for cash and your core values is unlikely to be resolved right away, yet your options should become clearer over time. Your key planets, warrior Mars and unyielding Pluto, are duking it out as opinions boil over with extreme points of view and little tolerance for dissent. Remember, managing your emotions is not about denial; it’s about being honest in the way you express them.

Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

You are riding a growing wave of enthusiasm now that fiery Mars is heating up your sign. His alignment with potent Pluto today dramatizes your desire to make measurable progress toward your goals. However, your sense of urgency can also destabilize interpersonal dynamics. Be careful about riding roughshod over someone else’s wishes or you might accomplish your mission, only to find that you disenfranchised your best supporters along the way. You will be alright if you remember that compassion is passion with heart.

Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

Sharing power can be tricky for you calculating Mountain goats, especially when a trusted ally seems to be harboring secrets. Tough-guy Mars is pushing against non-negotiable Pluto in your sign, triggering extreme reactions that make compromise a real challenge. Neutrality is elusive if unexpressed desires and hidden agendas are at work. Whatever happens, don’t waste the potency of this cosmic force on trivial matters; instead, be a fierce warrior for a worthy cause that’s close to your heart.

Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

You’re all set to challenge someone who uses self-righteousness as a justification to hold their beliefs over yours. In fact, the strength of your convictions can be inspirational if you don’t promise too much or not enough. Unfortunately, the Goldilocks syndrome makes it difficult to get it just right. You may be motivated by irrational fears of failure today, so try not to overcompensate for your insecurities. Rather than getting lost in philosophical justifications for your actions, approach each situation in a practical manner. But most importantly, only make commitments you intend to keep.

Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

Your career trajectory is blazing a direct path into your future now that superhero Mars is traveling through your 10th House of Status. However, the heavy hand of relentless Pluto can motivate you to take risks that may not ultimately work out in your favor. You must take stock of your resources, including your time and energy, and maintain control of your emotions if your current actions are to succeed. Don’t get distracted by disagreements over principles or politics; instead, focus on the forces that are within your control to fuel your ambition.

If Today is Your Birthday: August 3


If Today is Your Birthday: August 3

You are bright, inquisitive, and playful. Your presence is strong and, very frequently, all eyes are on you. You enjoy attention, but as you mature and gain more self-awareness, you learn to offer others the stage now and again! You have good money sense, and can at times be quite materialistic. Your ambition and desire to do your own thing can easily put you in the role of boss or self-employed. When motivated, you can be extremely determined and hard-working. Love can sometimes be a difficult life department, but you are very earnest with and supportive of those you love. Famous people born today: Martin Sheen, Tony Bennett, John Landis, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Ealy.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your birthday falls shortly after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period ahead of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially pronounced and rewarding this year.

Transiting Saturn harmonizes with your Sun from December forward (and until October 2016). This suggests benefits from keeping your feet on the ground and paying attention to, and honoring, tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off now – not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. When you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a time in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. The key to success under this influence is adopting a realistic, practical, disciplined, and orderly approach to your life. Having a strong sense for both tradition and innovation opens doors for you. You have a real sense of tomorrow now, so it’s easier for you to take the necessary steps to make all of your “tomorrows” better.

This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents. You can experience a stronger desire to seek out meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance.

This can be a strong time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year. You might take on new and possibly alternative interests or projects.

Mars harmonizes with Saturn around the time of your birthday this year, helping to ground you. Work is solid this year, and you can see results from your efforts, or at least foresee success down the road. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practice or refining a technique is favored this year.

Venus conjuncts Jupiter and squares Saturn in your Solar Return chart this year, affecting either your finances or romantic relationships, or possibly both areas. In these areas, you may often find that you have to make a choice in which both alternatives are desirable, but you must choose one at the expense of the other. Venus with Jupiter suggests ease, indulgence, generosity, freedom, material comforts, and an expansive love nature. Saturn asks you to be responsible, hard working, dutiful, and serious. You need to assess areas of your life that have become dysfunctional and, in the process, you may need to sacrifice a material benefit for a spiritual good (or vice versa). The urge to expand and socialize is great, but circumstances may be such that you are unable to “play” as often as you’d like. Or, you may find that extravagances in your spending have a way of catching up with you, and buckling down is necessary this year. At times, there can be very pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits. You might receive financial backing or special gifts.

This can be a good year for sharing your knowledge with others, teaching, and guiding. There can be some ups and downs in social relationships until you discover a better balance between work and play. It’s a good year for getting organized and for making solid progress with important projects. You can make significant headway in specific areas this year, and you are likely to feel a nice sense of direction and purpose.

2015 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.

2016 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, August 3rd






Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, August 3rd



Aries Horoscope

The first half of the day inclines towards pie in the sky thinking, dear Aries, and while musing definitely has its place and even its merits, avoid too-high expectations now. If you are expecting something to materialize and it doesn’t, you’ll end up wrestling with disappointment. There may be some doubts that need clearing up, but it won’t be long before you’re feeling more positive and confident. Be sure that you really own what you’re doing instead of taking shortcuts. Authenticity is always important to you in the long run. Love may not be faring very well today, as you could be doubting someone or keeping a distance. Try to tame a desire to control things, as it can get you into hot water!



New ideas and promises today may not have much permanency, dear Taurus, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun dreaming things up. Your focus can be diffused, making it a less than ideal time to make serious decisions or to do important fact-based work. You might have a hard time doing what you want because people who need help or support are taking priority. Be patient with others and avoid resorting to roundabout ways to get your way. Alternatively, you may be frustrated with people doing the same thing to you. Later today, while jealousies or resentments can be operating close to the surface, you can choose whether to accept and understand them or to let them control you.



The first half of the day requires some detachment, dear Gemini, as plans are unlikely to run smoothly. You can feel up and down – sometimes confident, other times unsure. Slow your approach just enough to see where you might be making errors or overlooking important needs. Listen carefully to what your intuition is saying to you, but wait for clarity. Your defenses may not be up to par, leaving you somewhat vulnerable to others’ judgments or comments. Be gentle with yourself and avoid setting too high expectations. As the day advances, your conviction increases, perhaps to the point that you become completely absorbed in your personal interests or even a relationship.



If you find that you’re more sensitive than usual to slights or criticisms today, dear Cancer, consider that you’re in need of some rest or special attention to overlooked needs. This is not the best day for feeling reinforced and appreciated. You might even see problems where they don’t exist if you’re not feeling self-confident. If emotions and reactions seem to be over the top and thus inappropriate for the situation, it’s time to look within. Someone is hitting a nerve, and you’ll do well for yourself if you take a deeper look at trigger areas. Try not to let sentiments and whims blur your judgment today. It can be difficult to state your needs directly, and you might resort to passive ways of asserting yourself, but that won’t leave you feeling better or satisfied. Do what you can to get extra time for yourself.



You’re in a good position with personal plans these days, dear Leo. However, you will need to get over a few hurdles and make some refinements before moving forward. You could be feeling a little vulnerable or low and temporarily demotivated in the first half of the day. Tomorrow’s energies are more stabilizing, but for now, consider those things you’ve overlooked. While today can bring you forward in some ways, you may be second-guessing something. If you are feeling off or confused, look for objective feedback. Build up your health and resistance with rest, then move forward. Later today, watch for latching onto an idea and pushing it without budging. It may temporarily feel that you’re protecting or gaining something as you do so, but you’ll be in a better position if you aim to grow through your conversations.


Virgo Symbol/Glyph

The Moon is in your privacy sector again today, dear Virgo, and it’s an important time to catch your breath. There can be some minor confusion or doubt hanging in the air early today. You are more impressionable, vulnerable, sensitive, and inclined to daydream. You may give in to others or withdraw and escape something you’d rather not do simply because you don’t have the energy. Watch for confusion or vagueness in close relationships. Put aside matters that require factual thinking for a clearer day. Focus instead on big ideas and fill in the details when you are in a better frame of mind to do so. There can be some tension later today revolving around memories or reminders of a frustrating past matter. Put resentment behind you – tomorrow you begin a new lunar cycle and start fresh.


Libra Astrology Glyph-Symbol

You may not be feeling very directed in the morning, dear Libra. Try to go with the flow rather than insisting on a solid plan. You might not feel that you’re in step with those around you. However, if you just go with the flow instead of worrying too much about the details, you should be fine. Take a break from the routine, but consider that the temptation to get out of a responsibility may be too costly in the long run. Save critical decision making for later. If you do something to help someone out, do only what you believe to be fair instead of doing more and feeling resentful. Later today, there may be some tension or power plays in your interactions, but it’s a temporary disruption only. Look for ways to release tension through networking or pressure-free relationships.


Scorpio Symbol Glyph

The first half of the day requires patience and letting go of a need for a solid plan, dear Scorpio. It’s not the time to pin anyone down – few people around you truly know what they want at the moment. It’s not the time for definite answers, but rather for exchanging information and enjoying the flow rather than worrying about the actual outcome. Be extra vigilant in communications, as misunderstandings are likely. Because you are more idealistic and inclined to wishful thinking right now, it’s a little easier for you to be deceived – by others, and by yourself! Strive for objectivity, even if you need to find it through someone else, before making any substantial commitments. As the day advances, you can fill with conviction, but you should still be more mindful of how you’re communicating.


Sagittarius Glyph Symbol

You may start the day feeling that you can do pretty much anything, dear Sagittarius, but plans may not come together just yet. Slow down until your heart and mind are in agreement. Dreams and ideas today may not take on real substance down the road, but you might enjoy a fantasy or two anyhow. If you feel tired or unable to get going today, you may very well need a bit of a break from routine or some rest. Attempting to push to find a resolution to a problem is unlikely to work out, but pulling back from it might. There’s sure to be a bit of a gap between your wishes and ideals and reality, but don’t waste time on discouragement – just give yourself a time out.


Capricorn Symbol/Glyph

You can benefit from looking back at old relationship matters and emotional issues these days, dear Capricorn, particularly regarding how they may be affecting you in the present. However, it can be tricky to broach taboo or complicated topics honestly today without ending up feeling awkward or out of the loop. If you don’t feel especially motivated right now, energy levels can drop. Be selective with where you direct your energies this morning. Consider waiting until you are totally onboard before going forward. As the day advances, watch for some insecurity in your self-expression. If others seem to want you to prove yourself, you may get better results if you quietly refuse to stoop to that level. Try to let go of a desire to control the smallest details.



You can have plenty of ideas today, dear Aquarius, but may lack the energy to get anywhere with them early today. This may be a sign that you need a break or time-out. Many ideas, commitments, promises, and plans emerging today can go by the wayside. Consider whether the easy road is the best choice right now, but if you’re not totally onboard about something, it’s important to put things on hold until you figure them out before committing. Tensions with a partner can surface over unresolved matters from the past, although these may be hard to quantify today. Remind yourself of your needs for compassion, sensitivity, romance, spirituality, and magic now. With all that’s going on in your life, you may be overlooking these things. As the day advances, your creativity increases.



There can be a real desire to accomplish things these days, dear Pisces, and you have a lot more energy to take better care of your daily life. However, in the first half of today, you may not know where to begin. You could be feeling a little out of sync with people around you. You may need to make adjustments for others now, as stepping to the side could be the better choice than to confront or challenge. You might also feel unnoticed or less than appreciated. Be content to be out of step or anonymous, just for now, as this can help you in the long run – it gives you the opportunity to observe and redirect plans. As the day advances, you may be less concerned about others’ expectations and more focused on what needs doing.

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of August 1st



General Horoscope

This Saturday, Mercury will move into your partnership sector, where he’ll remain for a long stretch thanks to an upcoming retrograde (starting August 30). As a result, you and your mate might begin to talk and listen to each other more. In fact, you may feel as though you’re finally making a plan toward resolving at least one situation that requires compromise. You might even make a decision about the future of your relationship.

Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

Make the most of Monday’s romantic excitement! Take the day off from work and steal time with your lover instead. Do something out of the box that you never considered before and savor every moment. You’ll be in the mood for sexy adventures and whirlwind pleasure so go ahead and make it happen! If you’re single after Friday, you might entertain the possibility of an office romance with one of your colleagues.

Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

Love is in the air! After Friday, you’ll be in the most enviable position thanks to Venus moving into your romance sector. She’ll remain in this part of your chart until August 29 and during this time you could meet someone and even fall head over heels for this person. If you’re already in a relationship you and your partner will rekindle those early stages of excitement and passion. Butterflies in your stomach included!

Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

A conversation with your lover on Monday will thrill you to no end. You’ll share a long held aspiration with your sweetheart and delight in the fact that he or she can help you think out loud about it until you formulate a unique plan to manifest it. After Friday, if you haven’t introduced your love to your clan you might want to consider it. They’ll adore him or her and will immediately welcome the love of your life as family.

Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

Communication with your lover becomes remarkable after Friday. Aim to make vital decisions with the guidance of your sweetheart after this time. These decisions might be about your life but they are most likely to also involve your relationship as well as your finances. You’ll manage to discuss even the knottiest topics with grace and understanding. This will only improve the affinity you share with your mate; strengthening the bond you cherish.


Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

Make the most of the final days love planet Venus will tour through your sign. Until Friday, you’ll have this magnificent edge to use to your advantage. If single, it’ll help you attract someone fascinating your way. In fact, you’ll be extra magnetic on Monday thanks to Venus embracing Uranus. You could meet someone who you would not ordinarily view as your type. Give him or her a chance — you might be surprised!

Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

The week might start out quietly but by this weekend, you’ll surely have an edge in matters of the heart. That’s because Venus will enter your sign on Friday and will remain in Virgo until August 29. During this stretch of time, your magnetism will be off the charts helping you to easily attract others your way. If single, you might meet someone who completely adores you. If you’re already in a relationship, then you can expect your lover to dish out more compliments to you than typical. You deserve them!

Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

If you’re in a relationship, on Monday sparks will surely fly. What you’ll feel most excited about however, is not the physical dimension of your partnership. No, what will really get your heart pounding is knowing that you and your partner can move forward to achieve a shared goal by using the most inventive game plan. Expect success! After Friday, you’ll feel a stronger urge to rejuvenate with your lover. Schedule a weekend getaway if possible — a spa would be ideal.

Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

Your love life is about to get busy! After Friday, Venus will move into your 11th House of Friends opening up plenty of doors for you to mingle with new and exciting people. As a result, a friend might casually introduce you to someone at a party you instantly connect with. Or, it’s possible that you and a friend will realize that it’s worth exploring the mutual chemistry you’ve been trying to sweep under the rug. Go for it!

Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

You’re on fire! This Tuesday, Mars will enter your sign and will remain in Sagittarius until September 27. While it’s true that you recently hosted Mars in your sign the difference now is that he won’t turn retrograde again, mucking up your ability to pursue what you want most. In fact, this time around, Mars will be exceptionally supportive. Your sex drive will amp up and so will your courage. Now is the time to make a move on whomever you have your eye on.

Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

If you and your partner are planning to buy a house or make any type of real estate investment, this week looks promising for developments. In fact, on Monday there’s an indication that you’ll profit from whatever domestic business deal the two of you have on the table. Whatever you purchase will likely increase in value and whatever you sell you’ll make a nice profit on. Act before Friday and you can’t go wrong.

Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

With Venus in your relationship sector until Friday, you and your mate still have time to enjoy an extraordinary cycle of harmony. This will be a perfect time to remind your mate how much you adore him or her. After all, appreciation is everything! By the end of the week, you might hear positive news from your partner about finances. He or she might get a raise. Or, it’s possible that the two of you will make a solid investment together. Wonderful!


Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

Life with your partner is about to improve dramatically. Even if things are already going well, after Friday you’ll benefit from the boost of Venus moving through your relationship sector. Until August 29, you and your mate will treasure that you’re in an incredibly happy place together. Loving feelings flow and appreciation for one another will be easily expressed. If you’re dating someone, it’s possible that during this time you’ll make a solid commitment to each other.

Your Monthly Horoscopes for August 2016






Monthly Horoscopes: August 2016


Aries Horoscope

Early August is strong for love relationships, flirtations, and your social life, dear Aries. In general, you’re in good spirits. The two principal reasons for this positive outlook are the New Moon enlivening your creative sector on the 2nd, and Mars moving into your adventure sector, also on the 2nd.

While work demands more than the usual attention in the month ahead, August brings great energy for breaking out of routines and enjoying yourself more fully. New adventures and experiences can suddenly seem desirable after many months of being quite content following simple routines close to home. Many recent pressures tend to ease for you this month, and this frees you up to explore recreational
activities. Creativity is stimulated, and some of you could be picking up a new hobby or breathing new life into an old one.

On the 23-24, Mars aligns with Saturn, and you’d be wise to focus on practical concerns, a game plan, or strategy. You might decide that something has run its course and needs to be left behind. There could be a need to get serious about an educational, publishing, or legal matter for some of you. If you’ve been pushing yourself too hard, you’ll recognize the need to pace yourself now.

Work and health matters grab your attention increasingly as the month progresses. This has been the case to some degree all year with Jupiter in your solar sixth house. You’re coming to the end of this fortunate transit, and you should take full advantage of the opportunities presented to you this month, particularly around the 21-22 and 27-29. You might discover a new health program or you could come up with excellent ideas about a new work project. Some of you may be reviving old projects now with renewed enthusiasm. There can be some exaggeration or excess present on the job or with co-workers. Even so, good humor helps you to heal and more thoroughly enjoy the work you do.



August is likely to bring stronger energy for connecting with a partner, dear Taurus, and perhaps some drama to your personal life. Financial matters, mainly revolving around shared resources or debts, might also heat up in the coming month.

Good energy is with you for redecorating your home or entertaining from home, and in general, peace and comfort with your family. The New Moon on the 2nd brings the energy and motivation necessary to start fresh. It’s time for a domestic makeover. At the same time, Mars moves into your intimacy sector, turning your attention to the hidden elements of your life. While your emotional life is a little more complicated, you’re also braver and more confident on a personal level.

While there is quite a bit of introspective energy with you in August, there is also radiant energy with you for creative and romantic pursuits. You are looking especially good these days, particularly on the 21-22 and 27-29, and might even be the object of desire. You may be tempted to turn up the charm, but aim instead for sincerity, as it will be appreciated most. Good energy is with you for expanding your personal horizons through creative endeavors. Love can be magical, and your powers of attraction run high. As well, a Full Moonon the 18th turns your attention to responsibilities and career.



In August, you are more communicative and sociable, dear Gemini, with Mars moving into your partnership zone and a New Moon occurring in your communications sector, both happening on the 2nd but influencing you for weeks. The desire to express yourself and share your experiences with others is powerful this month.

With Mars in your health and work sector for much of 2016, you may have been wrestling with all sorts of small but irritating problems. While the pace of your life is unlikely to slow down significantly this month, you are focusing less on technical challenges and more on the people in your life. There can be times in August when you feel others are in the driver’s seat. However, this can be managed if you experience the need to reclaim some personal power. It may be that you need a bit of a break from being in charge.

Another important theme this month involves growth and warmth in your personal life and with family and close loved ones. Nice opportunities can arise to bond with those closest to your heart. This can also be a time for buying a special or unique item for the home, or when money comes through. You may be finding peace with your past in a meaningful way. Jupiter is on its last leg of its transit of your home and family sector, and with its connections to inner planets on the 21-22 and 27-29 this month, you might decide to jump on opportunities to improve your domestic life. Opportunities for love and friendship may emerge close to home.



There is a wonderful practical focus for you in August, dear Cancer. You can get your life into order in fundamental ways. First, Mars moves into your work sector, firing up your desire to take care of your daily affairs and work. You may be gung-ho about a new health program or a work idea/project. Next, a New Moon occurs in your resources sector, motivating you to take charge of your financial affairs.

Mars spent an unusual length of time in your sector of romance and creativity sector and now moves into your solar sixth house, which is related to work and health. This means the rockier and exciting elements of your romantic life are about to settle down, and work heats up in its stead. While pressures are on, you may welcome this change of pace. You feel more passion and vigor for taking care of business.

Even so, you are also in good shape on a social level this month. You can enjoy wonderful conversations this month. Jupiter is spending its last weeks in a year-long cycle in your communications sector, and Mercury and Venus align with Jupiter on the 21-22 and 27-29, opening up doors for you to take advantage of the benefits of this transit. It’s an excellent time to exchange ideas, learn new things, and connect with others. You might hear something of great use to you, or that boosts your understanding. It’s a good month for those things that connect you to information and people, such as new or improved cars, bikes, phones, or computers and devices, and for education as well.



The month ahead favors new beginnings, creative endeavors, and making considered changes. While we’re not entirely free of inner planets’ retrograde activity, dear Leo, you certainly see some gradual forward movement in August. Creative projects and romantic relationships gain some speed, and stalled or unfinished projects may resume now.

The New Moon on the 2nd is all about you and is supported by Saturn, putting you in a practical and positive frame of mind. The month is strong for personal triumphs, small yet significant changes, and financial boosts. You may be feeling back on track when it comes to dating, hobbies, or creative pursuits.

Mars moves into a compatible sign on the 2nd after spending quite some time in challenging aspect to your sign. This can be a charming, hopeful, and optimistic period, lasting until September 27th. You’re ardent in your pursuit of what and who you want during this cycle.

The Full Moon/near Lunar Eclipse on the 18th can bring unacknowledged feelings to the surface. There can be a turning point or announcement in a relationship now.

Jupiter is on its last leg of its journey through your solar second house, and aligns with Mercury and Venus this month, presenting opportunities to make the most of this beneficial transit. Look for ways to improve your feelings of comfort, security, and abundance. An income boost is possible now, particularly around the 21-22 and 27-29.


Virgo Symbol/Glyph

August brings very sweet energy into your life, dear Virgo, with two planets, Venus and Jupiter, that have earned the title “Benefic” in your sign and coming into alignment. Mercury is also in your sign for an extended stay, and the Sun moves into Virgo on the 22nd. As such, there is a major focus on your personality this month. Your finer and more appealing qualities are emphasized. Yes, your ruler, Mercury, will retrograde on the 30th in your sign, but ideally, you have learned how to handle this rather frequent occurrence, and it certainly affords you a little more time to explore your inner world.

As well, some important influences are urging you to rest, recoup, and relax this month. The New Moon on the 2nd is one such reminder – you may need to take care of loose ends now. Working behind the scenes benefits you. On the same day, Mars moves into your home and family sector, so that while you’re likely to get some social attention and even admiration, a good part of you is a little “hard to get” now. It’s a necessary, healing phase. The rest and privacy you need are yours, although there may be plenty of stimulating dramas playing out around you.

The Sun in your sign gives you more power and courage from the 22nd forward. Home life becomes more animated and family life demands more of your time this month.

Jupiter is on its last leg of its journey through your sign, which lasts until September 9th. The 21-22 and 27-29 can bring sweet rewards and perhaps some recognition for all of the work or charity you’ve been doing quietly behind the scenes. Your personality shines. People see your value. This is a winning time for attracting others to you through your unique self-expression and vision, as well as for putting past grudges behind you.


Libra Glyph-Symbol

There is good energy for making solid, long-lasting connections and friendships this month, dear Libra. Even so, a lot of your focus in August is turned to the past. There is no shortage of invitations and things to do – it is more about your ability to pick and choose. Secrets and whispers delight in the month ahead, and you may willingly make a few sacrifices to be with a special someone or simply to spend more time alone and/or away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Aim to forgive yourself for past mistakes and learn from them.

Mars moves into your communications sector on the 2nd, where it will stay until the last week of September. You may be revisiting projects begun in March or April. It’s a good time for getting back into old studies or personal interests, and for beginning new projects. There is more passion and excitement in learning now.

Your sense of community is strong, and emotional satisfaction can come through your interactions with, or support of, friends and associates this month. Responsibilities to others may be in focus, but they are pleasant and rewarding. If you need to start fresh with a friend, August is strong for doing so.

There can be wonderful opportunities for healing, growing, and coming together with others this month. The 21-22 and 27-29 are good for these things. Some of you could be reconnecting with old friends or lovers now. Something may surface that brings much joy to your life. You might perform a generous act behind the scenes or anonymously.


Scorpio Symbol Glyph

You’ve spent a lot of time discovering your passions, exploring your assertiveness, entertaining your independent streak, and in full touch with your desire nature, dear Scorpio, with Mars in your sign for an extended stay. On August 2nd, however, Mars moves forward, and while in many ways you’ve benefited from Mars’ visit of your sign as you scoped out the playing field, it’s time to settle in and focus on building and developing.

You’re still interested in defending your rights, of course, but August is likely to bring a less competitive energy into your life, and you’re bound to appreciate the change of pace. Professional interests and ambitions are still going strong, but your personal life is considerably more chill than it has been. There is also the need to work cooperatively within the framework of a group with quite a bit of activity happening in your solar eleventh house. Work matters are solid in August and your drive to improve them even further is strong.

You may be seeking out ways to earn more or develop your talents this month. You may need to tame urges to spend too much, however. In all likelihood, you’ll be coming out ahead in the finances department, or you’ll be putting in the groundwork for future increases in income.

The 21-22 and 27-29 are brilliant for your social life. You’re appreciated and enjoyed. People are drawn to your optimism and generosity of spirit. Others might extend kindnesses to you now, and some of you can enjoy new friendships. These are also active, positive days for networking, sharing, and promoting.


Sagittarius Glyph Symbol

People in your life have been growing accustomed to a more withdrawn and even serious quality to you recently, dear Sagittarius, with Saturn turning direct in your sign and Mars in your privacy sector. Mars moved into your sign in March, but then turned retrograde and retreated.

However, Mars moves into your sign on August 2nd, and while you continue to assert your independence, you’re inclined to do so a little more loudly. You’re also more forthright and ready to take action. At first, it may seem a little raw, but as you get the hang of Mars energy, you’re likely to wear it well. A decidedly more confident and assertive side will emerge. Mars will align with Saturn and form a square with Neptune this month, so it won’t be completely smooth, but you’re now in a more energetic, confident cycle.

The New Moon on the 2nd is another fantastic boost for your spirit. You may be making a new commitment to learning and studies. Some of you could be promoting or publishing your work.

You’re also in a strong position in public or professional settings this month. The 21-22 and 27-29 can present opportunities for some recognition, a meeting of minds with someone in authority, an important sale, or another type of boost. You can be feeling quite optimistic about your career or social standing. A relationship announcement may occur now.

The 23-24 can require you to get serious about a personal matter. If you’ve been pushing too hard, you’ll come to the realization that you need to pace yourself now. It’s important to have a strong sense of what you can and cannot do, not by lowering your standards, but through self-honesty and realism.


Capricorn Symbol/Glyph

There is a quiet theme with you in August, dear Capricorn, with a New Moon occurring in your intimacy sector on the 2nd, and Mars moving into your privacy sector on the same day. Love is private, intimate, and passionate in the month ahead, so be sure to share yourself with bravery.

Despite this introspective focus, key planets are encouraging you to explore new ideas and experiences. Jupiter is on the last leg of its journey through your sector of adventure, learning, and spirit. This is a fortunate transit that serves to open your mind and open doors to you for promotion, publishing, travel, and education. For some, a legal outcome leads to more freedom or an opportunity emerges to explore an adventure that you’ve only dreamt of in the past. Freedom of movement is of particular importance to you right now, as any feeling of being tied to a set place or routine can leave you feeling stifled.

Mercury and Venus align with Jupiter and with one another in August, and nice opportunities can emerge as a result. There may be awards and rewards, particularly around the 21-22 and 27-29. You might especially benefit from word of mouth or positive reviews. Take every opportunity to brush up on skills and boost your knowledge during this period. This can also be a good time for meeting a special friend, possibly through new interests, studies, travels, or adventures.



Relationship matters are moving forward this month, dear Aquarius. Your social life may have been on the dull side in recent months, and while the withdrawal or lack has not been a terrible experience for you, the liveliness that August’s energies bring to friendships may be quite welcome. Watch, however, for the drama level to rise too high.

If you need a fresh start in an important friendship or partnership, the week following the New Moon on the 2nd is excellent for beginning anew. This can also be a time when a relationship reaches a whole new level or a new relationship is born.

The Full Moon on the 18th is just shy of a Lunar Eclipse and occurs in your sign. It’s excellent for making discoveries about your true feelings.

The 23-24 can involve a reality check of sorts in a friendship, group association, or regarding a long-term goal. You may need to lay down the law or put on the brakes temporarily before moving ahead.

With Jupiter on the last leg of its journey through your solar eighth house, you may want to take full advantage of its alignments with Mercury and Venus this month on the 21-22 and 27-29. This is a time for facing fears and breaking through taboos. It may be an opportune time for receiving support or getting help. You can experience a real sense of joy through intimacy with someone special, or experience an emotional breakthrough of your own. A partner may receive a financial boost.



Work and a sense of mission are in sharp focus this month, dear Pisces. Two strong influences begin on August 2nd: a New Moon brings a charge of energy to your sector of work, health, and habits, and you’re in a powerful position for fresh new starts in these areas of life; and Mars moves into your career sector, firing up ambitions.

Your needs and desires might often seem eclipsed by those of a partner in the month ahead, but for the most part, this is a pleasant, rewarding experience. Alternatively, your personal needs and plans are on the backburner for now. This is a natural process, and it’s better not to fight it. Honor the important people in your life and play a supportive role. In fact, there can be mutual benefits involved. You can derive much joy from feeling part of a partnership now, if applicable. The 21-22 and 27-29 are excellent for moving forward in a friendship or relationship. If you need to forgive and forget, this is a great time to do so.

Ambitions are sure to charge up this month as Mars returns to your career and reputation sector. Mars was here in March to May, but then turned retrograde and retreated into your solar ninth house – until now. Some plans and projects that have their origins in March and April may need some revisiting now. You gradually build up momentum and more wholeheartedly pursue your career and life path goals. A conservative approach in business is necessary around the 23-24 – you’ll need to slow down if you’ve been trying to push something too fast. Even so, you’re coming up with some very practical and workable long-term life strategies and plans now.

The Powerful Influx of Light – August 2016

The Powerful Influx of Light – August 2016

Hi my friend,

How have you been feeling the past several weeks?

The Intense Energies

The month of July left many empaths and sensitive souls feeling disheartened, confused, and defeated.

On the surface, this might seem like it has to do with the chaos going on in the world, which is constantly delivered to us via media outlets that incite trauma, shock, and fear.

But even if you are not someone who pays close attention to the world’s state of affairs, you’ve probably noticed that you have not felt like your usual self lately.

Why is that?

That is happening because along with the turbulence happening in the world right now, a great deal is coming up internally within us.

This is a direct result of the influx of Light being downloaded into our solar system—and into every cell, fiber, and molecule of our inner and outer being.

This powerful Light is coming directly from Source Energy, with no filters or fillers.

A Powerful Influx of Light

The current high influx of Light is setting a precedent, because never before in human history have we seen this much higher Light come in at one time.

And the reason for that, is that we just could not have handled it before now.

The heartening news is that Source Energy/our Higher Self only gives us what it knows we can handle.

So although it feels like we are being stretched thin or tested in a major way at this time, it’s all part of a Divine Plan that is aligned with our highest and greatest good.

The intention of this Divine Plan is to restore harmony, peace, and sacred balance in the Universe.

When this much Light washes over our planet, deeply buried emotions, thoughts, actions, and patterns come to the surface to be addressed.

Once these things are addressed, we then have the opportunity to learn valuable lessons that help us expand and evolve, both personally and as a global family.

If you are being challenged at this time, you may be feeling disheartened or drained, either emotionally or because you are being triggered by what’s going on in the world right now.

You can move things along more quickly, by asking yourself the following questions:

  • What valuable lessons am I meant to receive from reacting this way to this experience?
  • When was the first time I felt triggered by something similar to this experience?
  • Is my reaction something new? Or does it feel familiar, as if I’ve reacted this way many times before?
  • How does it serve me to react this way?
  • What would my life look like if I reacted in a different way, that feels more expansive and productive?

The answers may not come right away.

But the simple act of asking these kinds of questions begins to affect the neurowaves in the brain, shifting our thoughts from autopilot to thinking outside the box.

In simple terms, we are changing our internal dialogue, so we don’t remain fixed in a mindset that keeps us on a mental hamster wheel.

That hamster wheel includes habitual thoughts that express fear, worry, lack, blame, judgment, and separation.

When we help the mind to think outside its usual mix, we get off that wheel.

We then open ourselves up to receive higher insight and wisdom that comes straight from our Higher Self, and from the powerful Light pouring into human consciousness at this time.

Preparing for the New

When we move through a high influx of Light as we are now, and we take that initial step of addressing the deeply buried emotions, thoughts, actions, and patterns that have been holding us back from living our greatest reality, the next step is usually an energetic cleanse.

This is why things have felt really challenging lately. We’ve simultaneously been experiencing a powerful energetic cleanse, just as we are starting to address the things we’re being asked to let go of.

Whether or not we choose to address these unconscious patterns and habits that are no longer for our highest good, the cleanse has nevertheless been in full effect.

The great news is that after a cleanse is complete, we always have the opportunity for a fresh start. And we are getting very close to entering this next phase, where we can start anew.

Before a new start begins, many of us will feel guided to see old friends we have not seen in a very long time.

Some of us feel a pull to visit the hometown or area we grew up in, which we may have left a long time ago.

This pull can also draw us to geographical locations and vortex points we may not have been to before in this lifetime, but knew in a previous lifetime.

Others will feel guided to resolve any unfinished business from their past.

If you are feeling a pull to do any of these things, then you are at the tail end of your cleansing cycle, and are about to enter your New Beginning.

The World Unites

On August 5, 2016, the Summer Olympic Games will begin.

The Olympics were originally created with the intention of promoting comradery, good sportsmanship, and excellence.

Over the years, the energies have evolved to create a global unity grid, bringing the world together in a peaceful way, to show that through teamwork, dedicated practice, and camaraderie, anything is possible.

For several weeks in August, countries around the world will be putting aside their differences and walking together as “One Family.”

This is big, and always creates a major boost in elevating the consciousness of humanity.

During the Olympic games, billions of people around the world will unite.

This unified field will soften our hearts to receive and anchor the higher Light of Source Energy, so that we can then move into our fresh new beginnings.

If you’ve been going through a challenging time, know that things will start to ease up for you soon.

Just remember to breathe, and take time to enjoy the magic life has to offer. Birds still chirp in the morning, and the wind still blows a beautiful breeze.

And though it may not always appear to be so, all is well.

Till next time,

Peace and progress,
