It looks like a rollercoaster of highs and lows may be on the horizon for all signs. Read the general overview for this month’s round of horoscopes here, before diving deep into to your personalized forecast, below. -JKM
August will be a pivotal month for all 12 signs, highlighted by the importance of interpersonal bonds and community. In other words? August will be all about relationships of all kinds. A powerful Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on August 7 marks the first of two eclipses bookending the month, each playing a crucial role in helping to discard unrealistic expectations of those closest to us. Letting go of attitudes blocking our potential to give and receive love promises to launch each of us into a new stratosphere of inspiration and creativity during these weeks as well. This Lunar Eclipse will kick the global conscience into high gear, which may leave many—especially air signs, Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra—obsessing about humanitarian and social affairs worldwide.
A Solar Eclipse in fiery Leo follows on August 21, ushering in a new phase for all signs. Now, each of us will be fully aware of our own creative power in designing an ideal life. Progress will come easily in building and improving quality of life, but only if you’re willing to put in a fair amount of elbow grease. What’s more, you have to know what you want. If you’ve been aching to surrender to your heart’s passion by pursuing art, establishing a new business, or just stretching out your imagination, August is the month to do it.
Meanwhile, pesky Mercury—planetary ruler of communication and technology—will travel retrograde from August 12 to September 5, cutting patience to the quick. Misunderstandings, miscommunications, unforeseen hold-ups, and technology flubs are sure to frustrate even the calmest of signs. And, despite all the positive developments cresting with eclipse season, avoid signing any legal documents or contracts until well into September. Take deep breaths through this cycle. The stress is only temporary.
