Monthly Horoscopes August 2019

Aries (March 21st - April 19th)

August sees an energy burst for the Rams of the Zodiac with the Sun and your ruling planet Mars in your fiery cousin Leo. It is time for some fun-filled and creative activities. Life often goes in cycles of beginnings and endings. Right now you are poised to begin something new. You can welcome any new changes with the same confidence that a child has when he or she starts a new project. In fact children may be highlighted this month, either your own or someone else’s. Enjoy living in the present moment without a care for the future.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)

Your home and hearth are highlighted this month. This may involve changes on the home front such as visitors arriving, young one’s leaving home or a house move. On the other hand, you may start a project that boosts the emotional or financial value of your living quarters. Taureans are like Oak trees, putting down firm roots. As such your home needs to be solid, comfortable and warm. What are you doing to contribute to the cordiality in your own abode? Your family structure changes in some way during August. After all the planet of change continues its way through your Zodiac Sign.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)

August is your month for bright ideas. Your mind is more active than usual. It is possible that a lively activity is demanding your attention. If not then you need to keep your mind focussed on positive thoughts. A new skill, hobby or course may be the way to go. Otherwise you could take a short trip. Short journeys have the benefit of giving matters a little distance and a different viewpoint. How you communicate is important right now. So choose your words wisely. Think before you speak, email anyone or post on social media.

Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)

So, you survived the July Eclipses and are wondering what now? Security, financial and personal, are the focus this month. Like the crab you may hunker down every now and then to help feel secure, but what does long-term security mean to you? And how can you create this for yourself? These are the questions posed during August. You may value emotional security more than material goods. It doesn’t really matter what form your need for security takes, as long as you recognised your own vulnerability and have the courage to take action.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)

August is your time to shine with the Sun, Venus and Mars in your Zodiac Sign, and Mercury moving into Leo on August 12 (AEST). The planets are aligned in a way that encourages you to be your personal best. Whether you like to be seen as a King, Queen, Princess or Prince you now take centre stage in your life story. Imagine you are centre stage, ready to give a great speech or step into an heroic action. Now apply this to your own personal circumstances. What is your next step?

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)

Your ruling planet Mercury is stationary in the cosmos at the start of the month (seemingly standing still) and gradually moves forward. Other planets are aligned in a way that also encourage you to stall for a little while. August is your month for some contemplation before moving forward either with changes or no changes. If you have decided to change something in your life then you may still like to rehearse these alterations behind the scenes before making an announcement. Prayer and meditation can also be a source of comfort and guidance.

Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)

Friendship and support groups are highlighted during August. There is a time to reap and a time to sow. Right now, you are reaping the rewards of all of the support that you have given other people. In the past you may have felt that life was about others, as you supported their hopes, dreams and wishes. August sees your friends now support yours. With a few planets lined up in Leo this could also involve a creative or artistic dream coming to fruition through your social networks. All in all, a positive month with a little help from your friends.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)

Your working life is centre stage this month. It is time to focus on work-related matters such as office politics, career goals, further study to enhance your professional aspirations etc. You need to meet all of your key performance indicators so that you achieve positive feedback and attention from anyone who holds a position of authority. Praise from your boss this month is high praise indeed. This is also a month during which to avoid full-on combat with anyone at work. Conflict resolution should be calm and done with due diligence as the planet Mars is squaring off with your Sun Sign.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)

The Sun is shining on the 9th House of your Solar Chart heralding a time of broadening your horizons. Sagittarians are already adept at taking a broad, philosophical and sunny approach to life. This month you can further your skills especially when it comes to overseas connections and travel, academic study, sports and legalities. Archery, equestrian activities and international code sports may all appeal. If not a sporty type then this is the ideal month to indulge in arm-chair philosophy. The idea is that you stop sweating the small stuff, and see the big picture.

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)

The Beatles classic “Let it Be” could be your theme song at the moment. Saturn, Pluto and the South Node continue to wend their way through your Zodiac Sign drudging up matters from the past, and loading on responsibilities in the present. The more that you can ‘let it be” and continue with your karmic duties the better off you will be once these planets move further forward. Hardly fair is it that the responsibility laden goats have yet more duties to perform? Just think of the long-term rewards which surely come your way.

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)

Your primary partnership is the focus this month. This could be a personal or business union. If you are single then it is time to date, mate and relate. If you are already in a committed relationship then it is time to shine some light on your partnership. It is possible that your partner asks for some extra attention, or perhaps asks to resolve some conflict. If this is the case then you need to take it seriously. However, it is more likely that you can enjoy fun times and recreate some romance.

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)

Your everyday life changes during August. This could be a shake-up at work, or perhaps your daily transport route is undergoing a change. Whatever your personal scenario the time has come to take a creative stance when it comes to mundane matters. August is the ideal month to take your pet to the vet for a check-up, or perhaps visit a doctor yourself for a general check-up. Everyday appliances and your workaday vehicle may need some attention. If you have been putting off something detailed then now is the time to get it sorted.

Monthly Horoscopes July 2019

Aries (March 21st - April 19th)

Family matters take precedence now as the planets align in the 4th House of your Solar Chart. This can work in many ways. You may welcome extended family visitors or celebrate special family occasions. On the other hand, you may initiate some changes in your immediate family and home. The time is right to ensure that your foundations are sound, to enjoy your living quarters and those therein. A Solar Eclipse on July 3 (AEST) emphasises the focus on your private life. Positive vibes light up your dealings with anyone or any organisation connected to foreign lands or affairs.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)

The erratic planet Uranus continues to ensure plenty of surprises. Given recent disruptions, you are unlikely to be shocked that these changes occur in your personal finances. Nothing is settled, which is how you usually like things. The best made financial plans are likely to be affected. The trick is to keep your mind occupied, focused on positive connections. Also, you might like to diversify to help dilute any possible negative outcomes. Short journeys, or advice from others, might also help. A Solar Eclipse on July 3 (AEST) emphasises your need to keep a positive mindset. Good news may come your way at this time.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)

Your ruling planet Mercury once again turns Retrograde this month urging you to reflect rather than react. This is particular true when it comes to money matters. It is time to reassess your personal budget, and then concentrate on how and where you can either make cuts or improve your income. On the other hand, you may wish to examine ways in which you could boost your earning power. A Solar Eclipse on July 3 (AEST) emphasises the focus on getting your personal finances in order. It is your personal incomings and outgoings that are in the spotlight not your investments or joint finances.

Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)

A Solar Eclipse lights up your Zodiac Sign on July 3 portending an event or person who is likely to spark changes in your life. This could be a material change, or perhaps a change of heart. As a result, you see things in a different light. The message is that now is time to nurture your goals. Your own health and happiness are key factors in any decision making this month. Opportunities that come now can be trusted to be positive, as long as you don’t stretch your resources too far. Moderation as you move forward is the trick.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)

July is a time of contradictions for Leos. On the one hand the planets are aligned in a way that indicates retreat, rest and taking a back seat. This is not your usual modus operandi but this is your chance to recharge your batteries before carrying on your creative way. On the other hand, you also have some key indicators for moving forward with Mars the planet of drive and energy entering your Zodiac Sign. Therefore, it is likely that you are plotting quite a bit behind the scenes and by the end of the month you are likely to celebrate the results.

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)

Virgos are more social than usual this month. Your calendar fills up with meetings with friends, clubs and groups. These occasions are likely to provide much stimulation and perhaps propel you further towards your own hopes, dreams and wishes. In some manner you are fulfilling a personal dream and creating happy memories. Your ruling planet Mercury does go Retrograde during July calling for some caution. You may need to rethink a few of your ideas or plans. Nevertheless, a Solar Eclipse on July 3 (AEST) heralds success in group activities, and you achieving much through the co-operation of friends.

Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)

Professional recognition and promotion are highlighted with the Sun and Venus high in your Solar Chart. You are focussed on how to get ahead in life this month, however, your responsibilities as a parent or boss may also be high on your agenda. In some cases, you can be helped by an important woman, or perhaps a financial boost. An influential woman may also boost your career, or you could advance through your own artistic or creative efforts. Either way you enjoy your time in the sun and are unlikely to brook any opposition. Watch out for Aries-like people.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)

It is all about the big picture. Don’t sweat the details. Religion, spirituality, world affairs and sports can lift your spirits this month. You need to broaden your horizons and let the details take care of themselves for once. The focus needs to be on world politics and not family politics. How you shift the focus is up to you, but worrying about little things is to be avoided. You could plan an overseas trip, or a course of study that lifts your spirits. The July Eclipse season highlights your need to keep your mind sharp and focused on positive matters.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)

The minor planet Ceres has moved into your Zodiac Sign calling for some self-nurturing. Despite the fact that positive Jupiter is in your Zodiac Sign your popularity may temporarily wane as other planets align in a somewhat tense manner. You are not your normal effervescent self, perhaps preferring to tend to your own needs rather than others. To thine own self be true. You can turn to your nearest and dearest for support. Sagittarians are usually the ones to boost other people. Now you can put yourself first and ask for help. The July Eclipse season calls for changes in how you invest your time and money.

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)

Retrograde planets and a Lunar Eclipse in your Zodiac Sign on July 17 (AEST) suggest that stormy personal weather is likely during July. The trick will be to batten down the hatches and reflect on recent lessons. You may need to let go of something or someone in order to move forward. This is the getting of wisdom, at which you are adept. The Solar Eclipse on July 3 (AEST) may opportunities or opposition from others. However, by the time the Lunar Eclipse occurs you gain insight on the best course of action, both for yourself and those who rely on you.

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)

The time is right to perfect your craft, whatever that may be. There is a saying that details are the difference between average and stunning. Aquarians need to pay attention to the details now. Whether you are planning something new or finishing a project attend to the fine points. July is a busy time with Eclipses triggering the 6th House of your Solar Chart and highlighting chores that need to be attended to. This is the right time to tackle your mundane jobs, rather than sweep them back under the carpet. For instance, if you have a nagging thought that you should fix a leaking tap then do it now.

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)

It is time to birth something new this month. This may be connected to an artistic or creative project, a romance or perhaps children and home. Whatever your personal scenario you can have fun fulfilling a few dreams. If you are not feeling positive then seek wise counsel. Children are highlighted. These could be your own, or other people’s. Either way you need to pay attention to the childlike needs of others, as well as your own. If you have no children in your life, then listen to your own inner child. It is time to find creative solutions to outstanding issues.
