August Monthly Horoscope - Scorpio


Dear Scorpio, you might encounter some sudden obstacles or frustrations on the 1st when it comes to family, home or inner security. It’s high time for the familial patterns that you’ve been carrying with you to change, yet it’s best to avoid rash actions of any kind. Dare to assert your independence in a healthy way. Venus entering your 12th house on the 6th marks a time when you can fall in love with solitude and with self-reflection. However, Venus squares Saturn (the 9th) and Pluto (the 26th) this monththis month, there might be issues around intrigue or secrets or you might be feeling lost inside the muddy waters of your emotions. Libra advises you to try to keep your objectivity in the face of confusion. On the 7th, Uranus retrogrades in your 7th house, marking the start of a 6-month period where you might have sudden shifts in your attitudes towards relationships and partnerships. The Leo Solar Eclipse on the 11th shakes up your career and your public image. This is the start of a new career cycle that encourages you to dream big, but not too big- keep your plans rooted in reality! Staying humble and realistically assessing your potential are the keys here. Long-term, this eclipse can help you find your path and walk on it with integrity and confidence. Mars retrograding in Capricorn on the 12th might bring up issues around communication or learning 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 can show that the sacrifices you’ve been making for your career have been worth it or that someone is supporting you in your path from the shadows. Mercury going direct on the 19th eases your house of career and public image, removing blockages and maybe allowing some progress with the changes that were seeded on the Eclipse! On the 23rd, the Sun enters your 11th house, marking a time of socializing with like-minded friends and of getting involved in the community. Especially with the Grand Earth Trine on the 25th, this is a great moment to interact with old friends and to materialize your social plans.

The Pisces Full Moon brings to a conclusion what has started this March regarding entertainment, romance, kids and creativity. The best way to be soulfully creative and to find meaning through your passions&pleasures at this time is, maybe paradoxically, through being practical, responsible and community-oriented. 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 the home, family and communication areas. Enjoy this relieving August end as your batteries get recharged to their full potential!
