August Monthly Horoscope - Libra


Dear Libra, you might encounter some sudden obstacles or frustrations on the 1st when it comes to romance, creativity or children. Try to be cautious before you jump into that intense romance. Change is the name of the game here, but it’s best if you keep your impulses in check as well. Starting with the 6th, it’s your time to shine as Venus enters your sign! During this period, you come across as more charming to others and it can be easier for you to attract what you desire in your life. However, Venus squares Saturn (the 9th) and Pluto (the 26th) this monththis month, you might be feeling inhibited or issues of secrets and control might come to the surface. Stay fair and express yourself with love and equanimity- sometimes, opposition can better help us define who we are. On the 7th, Uranus retrogrades in your 8th house, marking the start of a 6-month period where you might have sudden shifts in your attitudes towards shared resources, sexuality or occultism. The Leo Solar Eclipse on the 11th shakes up your friendships, your social contributions and your dreams for the future. You’re encouraged to dream big, but not too big- keep your plans rooted in reality! Long-term, this eclipse can help you balance possessivity and sharing, hedonism and altruism through your characteristic sense of fairness and value. Mars retrograding in Capricorn on the 12th might bring up issues around family and home 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 great time to socialize with your friends and to have everyone’s eyes on you! Mercury going direct on the 19th eases your house of friends, social involvements and dreams for the future, removing blockages and maybe allowing some progress with the changes that were seeded on the Eclipse. On the 23rd, the Sun enters your 12th house, marking a time of introspection. Especially with the Grand Earth Trine on the 25th, this is a great moment to invest in getting to know your emotions better (especially deeply ingrained patterns) through spiritual practice, rituals and heartfelt interactions. Old self-sabotaging tendencies might come up now and can be countered through solid responsibility to yourself.

The Pisces Full Moon brings to a conclusion what has started this March regarding work and health matters. The best way to do your practical work with a sense of meaning and to find significance in your daily activities is through first taking care of your inner world and learning that being alone is not always a negative thing. 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 romance, creativity, home and family. Enjoy this relieving August end as your batteries get recharged to their full potential!
