Your Monthly Horoscopes for August 2018
Claire Petulengro, Astrologer
From The Astrology Room
ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Action is the fundamental key to all success. Once you stop to work out what you have to do next, then your whole world begins to feel like a more positive and constructive place to be. Give a close one the chance to realise for themselves that time is the answer to their dilemmas. If you continue to involve yourself in this way, you are going to put up barriers that cannot be easily brought down. The Sun sees you enter August with all of the tools you need to make your life a wonderful place to be. Don’t waste them but act, especially between the 2nd and 20th.
TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Of course you can act as if what you do makes a difference, because it does and will continue to. Time spent going over paperwork can help you to save a small fortune both this month and for the rest of the year. Someone from your past is still very much on your mind and you may be thinking of getting in touch with them. Give it a moment before you do anything rash. Time brings many changes. Your stars suggest that they were not as much of a constructive influence as you have been claiming, my friend.
GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
The eclipse in Leo on the 11th is a real turning point for you Gemini, but up until this date you are likely to have the feeling that you have forgotten something or someone important. Make your own game plan for the weeks ahead, as Mercury is on hand to offer you fine tuned inspiration and hope for your future. Dreams you have now are all within your reach. You have a way with words this month, which is going to be making it easy for close ones to open up to you about things they have previously remained closed about. Mars is also going to be pushing you to make a personal image change.
CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Don’t wish for what you want Cancer, but instead work for it. I know as well as you do, that life has not been easy for you over the last five years. However, the journey you have been on has made you a stronger person. Neptune works hard to bring you messages in your dreams and to your subconscious so pay attention to your inner thoughts. They hold the key to what you should do next with your future Events from the 24th onwards tell you all you need to know regarding career decisions
LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Jealousy is really strong in your chart. It’s vital however, that you don’t accuse your close ones of things they may not have done, or you could end up eating humble pie for a very long time. Could it be my friend, that you are taking out stresses about your professional life on those who are closest to you in your personal life? It would seem so. Try to make this month about having some ‘you’ time and not just about trying to complete the many promises you have made to those around you.
VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
The past is on your mind more than usual and this is likely to have a lot to do with the faces you are seeing and the places you are visiting. Try to remember things and people as they were, not as you would have liked them to be. This is likely to leave you with a lot more time and confidence to look at the reality of your situations. Mars brings out your competitive side after the 23rd, when you find it hard not to be greedy about what you want from current situations and set ups.
LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Family are not proving to the easiest to deal with of late, but why don’t you try during August, to state what you really want, rather than saying what you think other people want to hear. News from far away could see a trip being cancelled and rebooked again, but all in the name of a worthy cause. The written word is important and if an e-mail or form is about someone other than you, then make sure you let them see it before you send it off. Venus helps you to feel more confident about who you are and who you no longer need in your life.
SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
The very things that others think are too unpredictable to go towards, are the very things you are going to want to pursue. You have always been a sign who was attracted by the unknown and this month sees you ready to explore things the rest of the zodiac would shy away from. There is good news as far as finances are concerned, as those you need to talk to, are ready, willing and able to negotiate from the 20th onwards. Lost paperwork could be a problem. Back up or send all important things to yourself first please.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Try to keep out of office politics or you could end up with egg on your face. It would be far better for you to slow your pace and take in what is being said and what is going on around you. Your element of fire all too often sees you speaking for the sake of it, but make that mistake this month could cost you the faith of colleagues and superiors. Your ability to put new faces at ease can earn you brownie points with close ones. Make the effort to accept others’ choices. It is the key to you getting the freedom you’ll want in return too.
CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Try not to be angry at the things which your close ones may have said or done. I see from the stars that many of the signs have been under more stress than usual. Support you show to those around you can earn you ten times the amount in return. The home is highlighted from the 13th, where you may find yourself having to lay out money you do not feel should be your responsibility. Allow others time to think about their words and actions before you start a war. You’ll only lose credence and respect if you do.
AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
This month, turn can’ts into cans and dreams into plans. You have been playing the waiting game for far too long already this year. If you know what you want, then share your plans with those you love, but don’t shut them out for fear of rejection. It can only make your day to day life a more frustrating place to be if you do. New friends are made this month and for some of you they could become so much more, but slow your pace, remember what happened last year!
PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
I know that you have been living in the past and I understand why. This month however, it’s time to bring past and present into unison. Far away links in your career may seem the most unlikely way forward but actually hold the key to you opening the most important doors to your future yet. Try not to be jealous of a close one who has got something or achieved something you have not. Time is your best friend and all good things come to those who wait. Midmonth arguments show you who your true friends are.
