August Monthly Horoscope - Leo


Dear Leo, you might encounter some sudden obstacles or frustrations on the 1st when it comes to relationships or partnerships. Personal life-work life balance might be affected by surprising circumstances. Change is the name of the game right now, but try to avoid rash actions that assert your authority more than is necessary. As Venus enters your 3rd house on the 6th, you’re inspired to communicate more harmoniously and to enjoy your daily interactions and learning processes more than usual. However, Venus squares Saturn (the 9th) and Pluto (the 26th) this monththis month, issues around power, control and inhibition might arise in your communications, prompting you to feel insecure or to put up a tough front. A balanced, compromising approach is the best option at this time. On the 7th, Uranus retrogrades in your 10th house, marking the start of a 6-month period where you might have sudden shifts in your attitude toward your career. The Solar Eclipse in your sign on the 11th shakes up your self-image, your appearance and your path in life- in one word, you! Any issues that you might have with your family or your sense of personal security could come to the forefront now and it’s best to avoid the extremes of being excessively self-righteous or lenient. A new cycle begins as you’re called to be fully and unapologetically present in the world, honoring yourself and others from a safe inner base. Take your time and go with the flow of this royal Eclipse! Mars retrograding in Capricorn on the 12th might bring up work or health issues that you’ve encountered this May, encouraging you one more time to reflect on what planning and taking responsibility mean to you in these areas.

On the 18th, the Venus-Mercury sextile marks a good moment for communication and learning; at this time, you can express yourself with more ease and grace. Mercury going direct on the 19th eases your house of appearance and self-image, removing blockages and maybe allowing some progress with the changes that were seeded on the Eclipse! On the 23rd, the Sun enters your 2nd house, marking a time where your values and financial matters take center stage. Especially with the Grand Earth Trine on the 25th, this is a great time to invest in your physical body, your financial affairs and your work, with an emphasis on things that you’ve already initiated in the past.

The Pisces Full Moon brings to a conclusion what you’ve started this March regarding shared finances, taxes, intimacy and deep transformations. The best way to access your inner resources and to transform yourself at this time is through the practical contribution that you’re making to the world, through being present and embodied. Allow yourself to live those deep emotions. How has this manifested for you since March? On the 27th, Mars goes direct- gone are the days of low energy, frustrations and blockages in your relationships, daily work and health matters. Enjoy this relieving August end as your batteries get recharged to their full potential!
