The Sun is shining in your 6th House of Work and Service until August 23. The good news is that it may help you bring more creativity to your job and get more joy out of it. But this may also require you to be more enthusiastic about the tasks that you face on a daily basis. You might feel as if you're too important to continue doing them, which may be frustrating. Of course, if this spurs you to think more imaginatively, there are some clear benefits. One is that you may find a way to make your job more fun. Another is that you might be motivated to take chances in seeking more desirable employment. The point is that it's important to find joy on the job in whatever way you can.

On August 23 the Sun shifts into detail-oriented Virgo and your 7th House of Partnership. If you've been developing your skills, this can be an appropriate time to seek additional recognition for them. Looking for a different job, asking for a raise or taking on new responsibilities would also be appropriate. If you're selling goods or services for your own business, this is an excellent time to reach out to the public, either directly or through distributors or agents. Nevertheless, getting a system going with others can be complicated by Mercury's three-week retrograde cycle that starts on August 20. This is a time when miscommunication, lost information and technical difficulties are more likely. Make sure to be extremely careful in these matters to avoid costly and time-consuming mistakes.


Partnerships and working alliances can be key factors in your professional life this month. August begins with the expressive Sun in your 7th House of Others where it will enliven relationships until August 23. This isn't a time for you to play it cool, sit back and let other people take the lead. Sure, you may get encouragement from a strong-willed colleague, friend or boss, but the point is to take any spark of enthusiasm that comes your way, fan it with excitement and ideas and use it to advance your interests. Seeking energetic partners for projects will ultimately get your further than trying to do it all on your own.

If you're someone who deals with the public, August is a good time to get out there and gain some notice for yourself. This is particularly helpful if you're looking for a job or customers, since your ability to impress people should be higher than usual now.

You get a major push from the Leo New Moon on August 9, one that can fire you up to take on fresh challenges. This bold sign signals the need to bring more creativity and passion to your job. On August 23, though, the Sun enters cautious Virgo and your 8th House of Shared Resources. The upside of this transit is to connect with a highly competent individual who balances your originality with attention to details. The challenge is that a critical person may hold you to higher standards of performance.


Working relationships could be complicated this month with the Sun's passage through your 8th House of Deep Sharing until August 23. This transit in the bold sign of Leo might attract brassy or belligerent individuals who rub you the wrong way. You can feel like you're being forced to take risks that aren't of your own choosing. However, a more profitable expression of this transit is for you to be more dynamic at your job. Taking chances by pushing bold ideas and plans makes sense. Reach out to connect with strong allies or customers who can increase your income. Yes, it takes a bit of creativity to sell concepts that aren't fully baked, but enthusiasm counts as much as mastery of details right now. The need to stretch your limits, whether in your current field of employment or to move into a new one is definitely on the program.

Expansive Jupiter opposes your cautious ruling planet Saturn on August 16. This might, at worst, be a time of frustration when you're overwhelmed with too much to do or disappointed that your goals seem out of reach. But it is really a period of opportunity, because you can clearly see where you stand professionally. If you're fortunate, you may get recognition for your accomplishments. If not, the seriousness of the situation can spur a commitment to making a major turn on your career path. Use your good sense of strategy to study the situation carefully, set up a plan during the next month or two, and then take action.


Sagittarius is the sign of the traveler. Whether it's about an itch to explore the world or simply an interest in exploring a wide variety of ideas and cultures, this adventurous spirit can serve you well this month. The driving force to expand your horizons both mentally and physically is the Sun's transit through your 9th House of Travel and Higher Education that lasts until August 23. This may stir a spirit of restlessness that makes it harder to handle routine tasks and be tied down in one place. If you're seeking employment, though, this is a good time to connect with people in faraway places. Even if you're not interested in moving, your ability to sell your skills by long distance should be high. Going back to school is another possibility. And even if additional education is not on your agenda, learning about different subjects and places can only be beneficial.

The New Moon in bold Leo on August 9 can spark your interest in taking on fresh challenges. Publishing, promotion, sales and education are among the areas that may be ripe for you then. Yet for every gain or step forward this month, you may encounter delays or limits. Instead of pushing ahead at high speed, learning to let ideas settle or contacts ripen before forging ahead could make the difference between success and frustration.

Strict Saturn, the planet of limits, opposes your expansive ruling planet Jupiter on August 16, which indicates the need to plan carefully and consolidate gains if you want to keep them.


August is your time to shine on the job. The all-powerful Sun is in your 10th House of Career until August 23, which can put you in the spotlight. This is no time to hide, since getting attention can be a good way to get ahead now. It helps if you're bold, creative and outgoing. Save the subtle stuff and come on strong if you're seeking employment or trying to make a splash where you are. You need to be a leader and show your willingness to take risks. Sure, there's a danger of going too far or looking foolish, but it's probably better to fail while aiming for the stars than to play it safe doing the same old thing.

In fact, your modern ruling planet, potent Pluto, is powerfully triggered in the beginning of the month, which can push you to extremes. If you're frustrated or disappointed with your job, there's a risk of an explosion. This will probably not do you any good, but taking the intensity you feel and applying it toward a new project, being more efficient where you are or even considering a change of career makes sense. In any case, the strong emotions of the first week of August can provoke extreme reactions that need to be managed carefully.

Mars, the traditional ruling planet of your sign, spends the month in your secretive 12th House of Shadows. This means that you may be doing important work behind the scenes. Making peace with colleagues and building bridges with possible new employers or customers requires discretion and diplomacy.


Teamwork is a major issue for you during much of August. Generally you're great at getting along with people, but there are two challenges that you need to meet to step up your game now. The Sun is in your 11th House of Groups until August 23. Its presence in the outgoing sign Leo is a reminder that it's time for you to act like a leader. Being bolder and more creative in your actions can earn you the attention you deserve. Besides, if you stay in the background or simply try to go along for the ride, you might have to deal with a bully or braggart who makes work a lot less enjoyable.

Your considerable people skills get a boost on August 6 when your alluring ruling planet Venus enters Libra. This four-week transit can make you feel good, look good and earn you more rewards and approval from others. However, this lovely planet bounces through some rough planetary territory from August 7-10 that is likely to delay the benefits it has to offer. In fact, you may pass through shock, doubt, delay, exaggeration and mistrust during this period. Whatever can throw you off track should, as much as you can, be taken in stride, for this soon will pass. Besides, August 9 is the day of the Leo New Moon in your 11th House of Humanity that can spark a bright idea for a new project. It might have to do with community service or be of benefit to humankind so that you can do well by doing good.


Finding the right balance between boldness and caution is an interesting professional issue for you this month. August begins with the Sun in dramatic Leo, signaling an urge to be more outspoken and expressive. However, this transit occurs in your 12th House of Privacy, which means that you need to carefully pick the stages where you are going to strut your stuff, make your case and present new ideas. A potential negative of this transit is to have some arrogant person make promises he or she won't keep or to work against you behind your back. Yet even with the Sun in this outgoing sign, there are two reasons for you to be cautious now. There is something slippery about the 12th house: it's a place of secrets, which means that handling information with discretion is especially important at this time. If you have any complaints, make them privately. If you have any great ideas, be selective about who you share them with.

Another key factor this month is that Mercury, your brainy ruling planet, is turning retrograde on August 20. The backward turn of the information planet begins a three-week cycle when managing data, messages and technology often becomes more complex. But Mercury is slowing down all month, reminding you to take your time and be your best analytical self before making any important moves or statements. Still, when the Sun enters your sign on August 23, your ambitions may be boosted and your ability to get attention is likely to increase.


The Sun in your warm-hearted sign until August 23 offers many opportunities to advance your professional interests. The key is to use the considerable power of your personality to make connections, take risks and impress others. Coming on stronger without appearing overly pushy is an ideal way to open doors that have been closed to you. Whether it's getting a job, making a sale or convincing someone to buy into your creative project, nothing will happen without you putting yourself on the line. Yet no matter how hard you chase your own dreams, there's nothing like demonstrating your generosity and value as a team player to help you make a great impression.

The New Moon in your sign on August 9 is the starting bell of a fresh initiative in your professional life. If you're standing still in your job, your frustration level may rise. It's better, then, to move ahead with boldness than to quietly simmer with resentment.

It pays to be more cautious in the latter part of August as the Sun's shift into practical Virgo on August 23 is more about delivering on promises than making them. Attending to details and tying up loose ends is especially important.

Double-checking to make sure that your messages were heard and understood can be critical as of August 20 when data-rich Mercury turns retrograde. Small issues could trigger a major impact, and it's obviously better to be appreciated for handling details skillfully than to lose a sale, job or promotion through carelessness.


The Sun is lighting up your 2nd House of Resources until August 23. This is excellent for spending money to make even more money. Investing in promotional materials, equipment, education and training may seem expensive, but when you consider the potential long-term results it's probably a very good idea. The point is that the Sun's presence in your 2nd house is ideal for boosting your sense of self-worth. If that involves pumping up your personality or smartening up your wardrobe, these can be incredibly valuable things to do. This is no time to be shy. Acting confident makes others have more confidence in you, which in turn increases your self-confidence. This is a virtuous circle that will validate your work and enhance your career.

The New Moon in Leo on August 9 sprouts seeds of creative ideas to make your current job more interesting or stimulate a business move. The entrepreneurial spirit can trigger interest in a new enterprise or help you come up with fresh ways to earn more income. Don't forget creativity with the Sun in expressive Leo. If you have an artistic side, demonstrating your talents might also increase cash flow.

The Sun's shift into practical Virgo on August 23 is a time to refine your ideas, nail down facts and to communicate with greater precision. This month is really a two-stage process that starts with opening your heart, being courageous and acting bolder and then narrowing your focus to deliver on the promises you've made to yourself and others.


Mercury, the ruler of your sign, is a key to the unfolding cycles of your life. On August 20 this communicative planet stops dead in its tracks and begins its thrice-annual three-week retrograde period. In fact, before then Mercury will be slowing down, which can also reduce the pace of your professional life. It's best not to begin major new enterprises now, because the retrograde cycle is often a time when reviewing, revising and making adjustments and repairs are necessary.

Sure, you may be emboldened by the New Moon in confident Leo falling in your chatty 3rd House of Information on August 9. This certainly is a good sign for sparking fresh ideas and contacts. Still, the diminishing speed of Mercury makes it more difficult to assimilate new information, so don't gobble down more than a little bit at a time. Mercury's backwards time, however, can be helpful for reconnecting with people from your past. Old business propositions or job interviews that have not advanced may resurface during the last part of August and the first two weeks of September.

On August 24 the Full Moon in compassionate Pisces arrives in your 10th House of Career. This can raise your enthusiasm and your public profile. It's excellent for taking on inspiring tasks that give you more energy than they take. But there's also a risk of not setting clear boundaries about responsibilities so that you get overwhelmed with more than your fair share. Think twice before making any promises that could demand too much of your time and energy.


Feeling less appreciated than you deserve is a possibility during the first three weeks of August. The Leo Sun, a source of pride, is buried in your 4th House of Home and Family, where attention to personal matters takes precedence over public recognition. You could use this time to explore your creativity away from prying eyes or to bring more beauty and joy to your home life. Entertaining yourself regenerates enthusiasm and a childlike spirit that will keep you going until others are ready to notice you.

Venus, your alluring ruling planet, enters the partnership sign Libra and your 6th House of Employment on August 6. Normally, this can bring pleasure to your job and enhance working relationships. Those benefits may still come your way, but first Venus has to run a gauntlet of challenging aspects that can throw your daily routine off balance. An opposition to explosive Uranus on August 6 can rupture alliances and shake your rhythm with unexpected events. Stressful connections from Venus to Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter keep the wheels of change spinning on August 8 and 9. Still, the delays, doubts and pressures that you face can also clarify your picture of long-term goals and career potential. You might have to move in a radically new direction to ride this wave of innovation to a successful conclusion. However, for now it's best to choose your battles carefully -- most will waste your time but the right one can break down barriers on the job. And even if your situation gets messy, you can clean it up or shift your efforts in a different direction when the Sun enters Virgo and your 5th House of Creativity on August 23.


Your creative abilities could be off the chart this month, and you have the capacity to sell your ideas with passion that can melt any resistance. The source of these gifts is the Sun's passage through your 5th House of Self-Expression until August 23. The warmth and light of the star of our solar system arouses your enthusiasm and your adventurous spirit. It's not easy to stick with routine tasks that leave no room for play or innovation. If you have a job like that, it's understandable that you might want to rebel against it. Still, the smarter tactic is to entertain yourself with ideas to enliven your professional life. Starting a little business on the side is one way to make this happen.

Cooperation, though, is still essential with your assertive ruling planet Mars in your 7th House of Partners throughout the month. Tension may be high on August 3 when opinions grow strong and patience diminishes. If pressure is rising to the breaking point, back away and cool down so you can address issues with a clearer head.

Expansive Jupiter in your sign opposes restrictive Saturn in Libra on August 16, which can signal a strategic shift in your long-range plans. You may not be able to remove obstacles to your ambitions right away, but strengthening alliances can be a powerful step toward overcoming barriers. The Sun's shift into pragmatic Virgo on August 23 requires you to increase your work skills and efficiency. Relearning old tricks and refining methods of operation increases your value on the job.


Expect a spicy social life this month with the bold Leo Sun lighting up your 7th House of Partnerships until August 23. This is a great time to attract an outgoing and energetic individual. Yes, it's possible that he or she could be a little self-centered, which is not what you want. So no matter how attractive they are to you, stay away from the show horses who can't stop looking at themselves in the mirror. You need someone who is a friend as well as a lover. Sharing interests and ideas gives you the mental stimulation that you desire after the first blush of romance starts to fade. This transit also signals your need to take risks and come on stronger to get attention and make an impression. Whether you're trying to add life to your current alliance or seeking a new one, being subtle will probably not help.

In fact, on August 9 the New Moon also falls in your 7th house, providing you with a dose of excitement and increasing opportunities to make a heart connection. It helps quite a bit if you're willing to be playful and enjoy the game of love instead of taking it too seriously.

Sweet Venus moving into your 9th House of Faraway Places on August 6 begins several weeks when travel or people from different cultures can brighten up your personal life. On August 23 the Sun enters analytical Virgo and your 8th House of Intimacy to intensify and complicate relationships during the following 30 days.


Your relationship life should be very interesting this month with the Sun in your 8th House of Intimacy until August 23. This is a powerful transit that can stir up deep issues in a current partnership or give you a big step forward toward a new one. It pays to be bold and come from the heart if you're seeking love, as holding back even a little bit may be all it takes to knock you out of the race.

On August 9 the Leo New Moon in your 8th house can add some drama to your life and turn a small misunderstanding into a major event. If you're trying to have peace with your present partner, it's best to be as generous as you can. This isn't necessarily about money; it's about time and attention and your willingness to put aside your interests to attend to his or hers. On the other hand, if you're looking to get closer with someone new, showing your feelings in a warm and expressive way is recommended. This isn't a time when half measures are likely to make an impression, so either you're all in for love or don't get to play the game at all. Funny, flirtatious and friendly are normally enough to tickle someone's fancy, but you may have to do more than that for the magic to happen now.

The tone gets more serious as of August 24 when the Sun enters practical Virgo and your 9th House of Higher Principles and travel, cultural pursuits and education become keys to connecting.


Most Sagittarians are travelers. Those with the time and money love to visit exotic places, while those who don't have the resources are still fascinated by tales of faraway lands. These inclinations should serve you well this month with the Sun in your 9th House of Voyages until August 23. People from different cultures can be more attractive than usual, while photos of foreign lands awaken your romantic impulses. If you are able to travel, it's a great opportunity to connect with someone new or revive your present relationship.

However, there is an intense period of days in the beginning of August that could bring out the extreme sides of your personality. Your ruling planet Jupiter forms a stressful 90-degree square with potent Pluto on August 3, and then aggressive Mars makes tense aspects to both of them the following day. If you're attracted to someone, you might feel like you can't live without him or her. If you're upset with someone, your anger may far surpass the limits of reason. This intensity is both useful and dangerous. It's useful if it propels you to make major changes of belief, attitude, expectation or behavior. It's dangerous if you're poisoned with rage, fueled by blame or imprisoned with guilt. Instead of focusing on what's wrong, the key to happiness is to commit yourself to making things right.

On August 9 the New Moon in heartfelt Leo can help you brush away the cobwebs of the past to boldly move forward and create a future filled with love.


Your best chances for finding romance may come through work this month. The Sun is in your 10th House of Career until August 23, which gives you a chance to shine when you're in a public position. Whether it's demonstrating creativity and generosity on the job or in working for a cause in which you believe, earning respect for what you do in the open can bring you what you desire behind closed doors.

Still, this might not be the easiest time of the year to fulfill your romantic desires. Mars, your traditional ruling planet, is still rattling around in your 12th House of Privacy, making it difficult to get attention. Of course, if you're into having a hush-hush relationship, this might be exactly what you need. Do your best to treat others fairly, even if they fall short in doing the same for you. As long as you're not sacrificing too much for a person who will never reciprocate or are suffering in silence, making some accommodations to meet a person halfway is reasonable.

Amorous Venus enters your 12th house on August 6, continuing the theme of working quietly behind the scenes and secretly maneuvering to get who and what you want. However, this normally placid planet runs into a tornado of turmoil with stressful aspects (significant angles) to Uranus, Saturn and Pluto from August 7 through 10. If your love life is a little chaotic (or invisible) then, don't fret, since these are quickly passing events that don't have to harm your long-term prospects for personal bliss.


The planets could make you a romantic offer that you can't refuse this month. August finds passionate Mars, the planet of action, in your sign, which motivates you to take the initiative more than you usually do. Being the first one to make an obvious move can be good for you. Sure, you may have to face rejection, yet keep your head up, your heart open and continue trying. Whether it's to enliven a current partnership or to get a new one off the ground, assertive Mars is your ally now.

Yet energetic Mars alone isn't enough to cook up the magic cocktail called love; for that you need Venus, and the good news is that she's heading your way. This alluring planet is about beauty, style and grace, which is why she's the ruler of your elegant sign. Venus glides into Libra on August 6, which usually is like laying down a carpet of roses to walk on. Yet there are some serious thorns now in the form of difficult aspects (angular connections) between Venus and Uranus, Saturn and Pluto on August 7-10 that could test your mettle. Relationships can be rattled and trust undermined but these obstacles will pass quickly. Still, there's plenty to look forward to, especially when Venus joins Mars on August 20. These are Astrology's lovers, the planets of action and attraction that make a perfect couple. This is a great time to go on a charm offensive by using your considerable social skills and sense of style to take a big step toward romance.


You may feel a little bit like an outsider or someone who is not in charge of her or his personal life for much of this month. The all-powerful Sun is in your 12th House of Privacy until August 23, which is not ideal for getting your fair share of attention. However, it still can be a useful period for connecting in quiet, out-of-the-way places where you feel safe enough to share your innermost thoughts. A partner with discretion is a must if you're going to open up like this. Don't share intimate information unless your trust level is very high.

Perhaps the key to relationship success now is to start by pleasing yourself. Magnetic Venus enters your 2nd House of Self-Worth on August 6, signaling a time when making yourself happy is a priority. If you have some doubts about whether you deserve it or not, set them aside and just see what spoiling yourself a little bit will do.

There are two major shifts in your social winds later this month. Mercury, your brainy ruling planet, turns retrograde on August 20 in your sign. This indicates the importance of managing details carefully (one of your specialties) and putting in extra effort to clear up old misunderstandings -- and to avoid new ones. Longing for someone from your past is another possibility during Mercury's three-week backwards period. On the other hand, the Sun's entry into Virgo on August 23 pulls you out of the shadows and draws you into the spotlight where you get noticed, especially when you're running the show.


The Sun is shining in your fun-loving sign this month, which is an excellent reason to set aside as much work as you can to make time for play. Leo is associated with the heart and is certainly capable of dramatic expressions of love. The solar power lighting up your chart now can bring you to even greater heights of romance. Of course, sometimes it's hard to tell whether this is about true and lasting love or just a way to make your life more exciting. Fortunately, there is an important planetary pattern that can provide just enough reason for you to maintain a degree of emotional balance.

Loving Venus enters her airy home sign of Libra and your 3rd House of Communication on August 6 to facilitate reasonable discussions and reduce the stress of conflicting points of view. Still, Venus runs through a rough planetary neighborhood from August 7-10 that can provoke some surprising behavior and instigate power struggles. This is a time to shake up and shake out old attitudes and expectations, face jealousy issues and get a fresh start with the one you're with now or with someone new.

On August 9 the Leo New Moon sparks fires of emotional intensity that can turn a minor problem into a major conflagration. On the other hand, if you've been less than confident about yourself, this Sun-Moon conjunction provides a push that can boost your morale. Of course, nothing happens unless you're willing to take action and behave like the natural leader you are.


It's best to be bold this month if you want to get the attention and have the fun that you desire. The Sun in Leo is roaring in your 2nd House of Self-Worth until August 23, reminding you to show some brass and treat yourself like a star. Your caring sign is rarely accused of arrogance, but showing more concern for yourself and demanding to be treated with respect are keys to fulfilling your needs. A little bit of extravagance will also go a long way to brightening up your image and attracting someone new or getting more appreciation in your current relationship. Spending money on clothes or jewelry can seem like a waste, yet even a small, playful purchase might be enough to have a positive impact on your personal life.

Alluring Venus enters your 4th House of Home and Family on August 6, which can be helpful for bringing peace to your living space and making it more beautiful. Normally-accommodating Venus runs into some rough planetary waters from August 7-10, but once the waves subside you should be able to find the harmony that you need.

On August 9, the New Moon in Leo sets off rockets of self-esteem that can give you the fire to love without reservation. Yes, it's risky to open your heart fully, but this is a time when your courage allows you to take chances. The Full Moon on August 24 is in sweet Pisces and your 9th House of Faraway Places, triggering opportunities for making connections while traveling or with people from different cultures.


Your sign is known for its ability to communicate, and your skills as a talker can be a major asset for your social life this month. The Sun is in your information-rich 3rd House of Communication, making it even easier than usual to start conversations. Total strangers may be enthralled by what you have to say, but people will react more to how you say it than the message itself. An upbeat and positive mood makes your words more interesting than complaining or giving a flat recitation of facts. Spice it up, tell stories and jokes, even exaggerate if you have to. As long as you keep smiling and are alert to your audience you'll do fine.

Venus, the planet of love, enters your 5th House of Romance for a one-month visit starting on August 6. Passionate Mars is already in this delightful part of your chart, which could make this one of the most personally rewarding months of the year. However, Venus runs a gauntlet of difficult aspects (connections with other planets) from August 7 through August 10 that can be weird, uncomfortable and destabilizing. Inconsistent moods and unpredictable responses could leave you at a loss about the right way to please a current partner or a potential new one. Just stay loose during this period, because once you're over these bumps there's smoother sailing ahead. Venus and Mars, Astrology's lovers, meet up on August 20 and can make you adorable even if you don't see yourself that way. It's an excellent opportunity for pleasure, so don't miss out on what could be a fabulous weekend.


The Sun is lighting up your 4th House of Home and Family until August 23. This might not be the most advantageous transit for getting out and meeting people, but it's helpful for making someone feel good at your place. Brightening up your environment is not only more appealing to others, but can raise your self-confidence -- indulging yourself in a piece of furniture or decorative item may have unexpected social benefits. If you have a live-in partner, sharing in the process of beautifying your home can also enliven the relationship.

Venus, your ruling planet and the one most associated with love, is in your 6th House of Work and Service throughout the month. This suggests the possibility of connecting with a person through your job or when involved in some kind of task or hobby. But this is also a period when taking care of your body and your appearance is a worthwhile endeavor. Regardless of where you begin, making any progress in refining your look should be beneficial now.

The payoff for pumping up your looks can become more obvious as of August 23 when the Sun enters Virgo and your 5th House of Romance. The solar force in this part of your chart leads to 30 days when you're more able to get attention. This is also a period when you should be willing to do what it takes to express your feelings. It's vital, though, to not harp on your imperfections, since you could be a bit more self-critical. Focus on what you have going for you rather than what you're missing.


The warm-hearted Leo Sun in your 5th House of Romance until August 23 should keep your personal life busy. It's appropriate to take chances and put your feelings out there where everyone can see them. Sure, you might come on too strong for some sensitive souls, but let's face it, Aries, those who wilt under the heat of your passion are not ideal candidates for a long-term relationship. One of your gifts this month is a spirit of fun and a higher-than-usual capacity for creativity. Being entertaining gets you the kind of attention that you desire, but coming up with innovative ideas for pleasing someone else will make you even more alluring. Having fun establishes you as someone others want to be with, but they need to feel included in your party instead of just being spectators to a show you're putting on to amuse yourself.

You have another planetary arrow in your quiver of love this month as passionate Mars, your ruling planet, is in your 7th House of Partnerships. This attracts gracious people and makes it easier for you to temper your enthusiasm with dashes of grace and diplomacy.

Then, on August 6, vivacious Venus also enters your 7th house, which should make you even more charming. However, from August 7 to10, Venus runs into stressful aspects with some tough planets that might make relationships rockier. Keep your cool and avoid excesses during this time, and when the thunderstorms blow over the pleasures of sharing your life will become more obvious.


You're used to adapting yourself to others' needs, Pisces, which has both its positive and negative sides. Your flexibility can often smooth out rough spots in a relationship, but it can also lead you to compromising more than you should and winding up with less than you deserve. These issues are especially important this month. The Sun is in your 6th House of Service until August 23. This tends to put you in situations where you put in most of the effort to make things work with someone else. You can be extremely creative and generous in doing that, especially when the New Moon in Leo falls in this part of your chart on August 9. The benefit of this transit, though, is the possibility of meeting someone through your job or when doing chores or service-oriented tasks.

On August 6 sweet Venus, the planet of amour, enters your 8th House of Intimacy. This sounds like good news and might be once this lovely planet gets past a passel of demanding and difficult planets on August 10.

Venus is in Libra, the sign of fairness that will reward you when you expect to be treated as an equal. You should see the benefits of this transit when the Sun moves into your 7th House of Partnership on August 23. You'll be ready to leave the kitchen, Cinderella, and dance at the ball.


You've got more than your share of unfinished business this month, as you revise both relationships and long-range plans. With Jupiter's square to Pluto on August 3, you continue the soulful investigation of your life's purpose and meaning that you began late last month. The full impact of this research is likely to be evident upon the two planets' final square on February 25, 2011. Still, you should get some resolution on August 21, when Saturn and Pluto complete their three squares that previously occurred on November 15, 2009, and January 31 of this year. This harsh aspect between the toughest planets emphasizes the need to let go of what costs too much and commit to pursuing what you truly can't live without.

Keep In Mind
You are laying down the paving stones to your future this month. Take the time to put them in the best place possible.


The month starts with Jupiter, in your 3rd House of Learning, squaring destructive Pluto in ambitious Capricorn and your 12th House of Endings, which can cause an obsessive drive to accomplish your goals. This intense aspect, which first occurred on July 25 and repeats on August 3, can deceive you into believing you can outsmart your destiny. However, karmic Saturn has a plan for you and requires that you take others seriously. Saturn's opposition to flamboyant Jupiter on August 16 and square to tough-guy Pluto on August 21 strongly suggest that your summer vacation might need to be put on the back burner while you attend to more pressing matters. Trickster Mercury turns retrograde on August 20, further slowing or altering your plans.

Keep In Mind
Do your best to approach new ideas in a practical manner. Acquiring data is much easier than integrating it into your life.


Relationships are your primary source of opportunity as well as struggle this month.

Yet you can take a major step forward by clarifying what a partnership could achieve and what you'd have to sacrifice in return. Accommodating Venus shifts into equitable Libra and your 10th House of Status on August 6, attracting someone who's willing to play in fairly and promote harmonious teamwork.

This dramatic month tests your perseverance. It's not easy to manage the pressure of unrelenting responsibilities, yet rewards will follow if you do. The month begins with outgoing Jupiter, in your 5th House of Romance and Self-Expression, squaring Pluto on August 3, motivating you to prove yourself. But Jupiter is opposed by nay-saying Saturn from your 11th House of Groups and Dreams on August 16, demanding that you play by the rules of reality. Success takes time, and you must be willing to do the work before harvesting the fruits of your labor. On August 20, Mercury turns retrograde in your 10th House of Career, unraveling loose ends and creating delays in your professional life.

Keep In Mind
Instead of planning what's next, concentrate on doing the best you can in the present. Once you're through these current challenges, your future will blossom.


This is a month for making major decisions. Pluto, your co-ruling planet, is the focal point of a major alignment between career-shaping Jupiter and Saturn, leading to inner shifts that affect long-term events. Until August 3, opportunistic Jupiter's square to defiant Pluto can create discomfort on the job, underscoring your need to decide if you're in the right place. Your options -- or lack thereof -- should become clearer when Jupiter opposes Saturn on August 16. Saturn makes a last squeezing square to Pluto on August 21, which can push you to your limits. Don't rush to judgment, though. Jupiter will square Pluto one more time on February 25, 2011, and oppose Saturn on March 28, 2011, to complete this transformational process.

Keep In Mind
The best way to prepare for major life changes is to bask in the joy that's already present, fueling your journey to a better future.

Your daily routines may undergo significant stress this month -- regenerative Pluto is making a long-term visit to your 6th House of Self-Improvement, but old habits must die before new ones are born. Optimistic Jupiter in your 9th House of Big Ideas squares Pluto on August 3, overinflating your confidence, so you may need to restrain your ambitions, especially if you've recently taken on too much work.

A cycle is completed on August 21, when Saturn in your 3rd House of Communication squares Pluto. You could exhaust yourself winning every battle while still losing the war, so figure out what you can eliminate to assure overall success.

Keep In Mind
Stressful situations can remind you to handle the issues you've previously dodged. Expecting too much change too fast may be unrealistic. Look to small adjustments.


Jupiter and Saturn, the planetary shapers of destiny, oppose on August 16, when you may feel pulled between the urge for a more exciting professional life and the need for safety and security. You don't have to reach a final decision now -- current circumstances should help clarify the picture, enabling you to make a more informed choice when you're ready. Articulate Mercury turns retrograde on August 20, beginning a three-week period when you must take extra care to avoid mistakes and miscommunication. On August 24, the Full Moon in compassionate Pisces illuminates your 9th House of Big Ideas, where hunger for deeper meaning can make your daily life seem inconsequential. The purpose, though, is to nourish your routine with a spiritual perspective that motivates you and keeps your life in balance.

Keep In Mind
If you're not pushing the envelope of possibility now, you're not trying hard enough. Mistakes caused by going too far are more useful than benefits reaped from playing it safe.


The month opens with a bang when courageous Jupiter in your 11th House of Dreams and Wishes squares ruthless Pluto on August 3. You're tempted to do whatever it takes to reach your goals, but creating tension by ignoring your peers is not a smart idea right now. The proud Leo New Moon on August 9 prompts you to stand up for your beliefs, but it could be challenging to do so effectively if you're caught up in emotional struggles. Expansive Jupiter in your social 11th house opposes restrictive Saturn in your 5th House of Self-Expression on August 16. Your current task is to seek a level of personal creativity that doesn't upset the stability of your local community of friends and associates, but, rather, contributes to it.

Keep In Mind
Don't let frustration get the best of you. Even if you can't see your progress yet, trust that very big changes are underway.


The slow-moving outer planets align in powerful aspects this month as they continue rearranging your world. Visionary Jupiter's square with provocative Pluto on August 3 repeats last month's push to reexamine your long-term goals and take greater risks in pursuit of greater rewards. This aspect returns on February 25, 2011, for another key moment of choice in redefining your beliefs. Jupiter opposes no-nonsense Saturn on August 16, perhaps forcing you to take a step back from a project and consider whether to forge ahead on your own or seek the help of a partner. Finding a balance between taking care of others and attending to your needs is essential with the Full Moon in compassionate Pisces on August 24.

Keep In Mind
Base your decisions on where you want to be in five years, not how you hope to spend the next five minutes.


August starts with high motivation thanks to pompous Jupiter's square to passionate Pluto that occurred on July 25 -- you may be especially confident, assuming you can power your way through any obstacles now. However, this influence begins to wane after August 3 and your initial optimism may be tested. The demonstrative Leo New Moon on August 9 offers hope of renewed love as romantic Venus aligns with opulent Jupiter, yet tough relationship issues surface around August 16 when strict Saturn in your 7th House of Others opposes expansive Jupiter in your 1st House of Personality. Trickster Mercury turns retrograde on August 20 in your 6th House of Details, prompting you to revisit unfinished business prior to September 12, when it resumes direct motion.
