Happy Birthday, dynamic Leo! This will be a stellar birthday month for you since sexy Venus is in Leo until August 6th. Make sure you receive some serious pampering before that date. You know you deserve it!
After July 31st, there will be a big party of four planets in your sign of Virgo until September 1st. This is your time to be as Virgo as you can. Organize things. Do a late spring housecleaning. Beautify your environment.
The first week in August is your power time, peaking on August 7th and 8th. You will likely have to defend your independence with a strong partner who wants you to do what they want and not what you want. Stand up for yourself, dear Libra.
Mars has been in your sign, on and off, since January 16th. Due to Mars retrograding, that is a much longer duration than normal. Mars finally leaves Scorpio on August 3rd. Do any last financial details and then you will be free!
Mars enters Sagittarius on August 3rd and will remain in your sign until September 27th. Mars will energize and inspire you to move forward with the projects you’ve had on the back burner. It will feel great to get started on your dreams.
Your power dates this month are August 14th – 16th, when several planets are supporting your Capricorn Sun. There is a party in Virgo which is strengthening your earthy Capricorn at that time. Plan to meet with financial advisors.
The Full Moon is in Aquarius on August 18th. This is more than a Full Moon and is actually a Lunar Eclipse. When an Eclipse lands in your sign, it marks a time to rethink your life. Often something wants to be released. What is no longer needed?
There is a big party in Virgo now that is opposing your Pisces Sun. You will feel less spacey and more willing to put your feet on the ground and get things done. Make a Virgo to-do list and actually check the items off one by one. You can do it!
You have an unusual grouping of planets helping you now to get more fit. See if you can be more regular with your workout schedule and you will see a big difference in your body as well as your spirit.
Venus is your planet and brings luxury to your life. Venus can also give you unlimited creativity and this is the month to explore beauty. Focus on expanding your artistic ideas in a fun project.
Both Mars and Saturn are in your opposite sign of Sagittarius now and will be helping you focus on long-term projects now. Tackle something that you have wanted to do for a while but seemed too big. Now is the time to do it.
There is a party of planets in your house of communication now. Use this month to get caught up on your correspondence, emails and maybe even write an old-fashioned letter to a loved one.
