Monthly Horoscopes August 2020
Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
Creativity is the key word. What does this mean to you? How can you express yourself in a more creative way? Creativity is a noun that is defined as the use of imagination or original ideas to create something; inventiveness. This could mean anything from choosing the colours to paint the walls in your house, to taking up art or dance classes. Your ruling planet Mars is in your Zodiac Sign indicating that it doesn’t really matter what course of action you take, as long as you move forward. It is time for self-motivation.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
Family connections are centre stage. First come the connections that you have with people who live under your roof. It is time to nurture your loved ones close to home. Home improvement projects may also be satisfying. Next comes the extended family, those who live far away but with whom you want to remain connected. How do you care for these members, especially in times of pandemic social distancing, and lockdowns? Social media offers one solution. Sending a well-wishing card or gift could be another reminder of their importance in your life.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
Your ruling planet Mercury is moving forward again, and the Moon’s Nodes are traversing your Zodiac Sign heralding a period during which you are brimming with ideas, plans and eager to make connections. These need to be local such as links with neighbours and nearby groups, or perhaps short journeys rather than far-reaching goals. It is possible that you have reached a fork in the road and have a choice to make. See the choice as a win/win rather than feel that one way is wrong. If you feel stuck then a short course could lift your spirits and set you back on the right track.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
Loving thoughts. The Cancer Sun Sign person is an expert at having loving thoughts for others but as the planet Mercury moves through your Zodiac Sign the lesson is now to make sure that you apply those thoughts to yourself as well. It’s time to listen to, and honour your own intuition. As a crab you are one of the most intuitive Signs of the Zodiac, knowing when to burrow down for shelter and when to come up and explore the world. Your self-esteem is what needs working on this month. Once you believe in yourself then there is no stopping you. The ocean is calling you.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
“Take care of your costume and your confidence will take care of itself”. So says author Amit Kalantri. This could be your mantra this month as the Sun moves through your Zodiac Sign and through the 1st House of your Solar Chart. It is time to focus on your own health and happiness. And there may be something confidence boosting in having a makeover. Leos are generally very image conscious, knowing that Amit’s saying is very true. So, the key question in August is: “How would you like to move forward presenting the best possible you, both inside and outside?
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Virgos need to take some time out. This is your usual task at this time of year. Just before your birthday you need to reassess your previous year and rest up for the next one. The only exception is if you are in a role or job that requires you to be of service to others. If this is the case then you need to take some down time each day if possible. By the time your ruling planet Mercury moves into your Zodiac Sign on August 20 (AEST) you are ready with your schedules, plans and priorities for the next birthday year.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
You get by with a little help from your friends this month but only if you ask. You are adept at appearing calm on the exterior even when the scales are out of balance within. Right now, you can connect with friends to celebrate the good times, but also if you need help maintaining your equilibrium. You only need to ask. It is also the right time to expand your horizons. You may not be able to travel afar, but you can dream. Travel documentaries, creating a vision board of places to visit or watching foreign films could satisfy your need to rise above mundane matters.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
It’s all systems go in your professional life this month. The Sun is high in your Solar Chart beckoning career achievements. You may receive recognition for a job well done, a promotion or more responsibility. This is your time to shine. Self-motivation at work is the key in August. If you lack energy then you may need to go back to basics and remind yourself as to why you chose your particular career. Meaning rather than ambition will get your motors started again. If it is time for a change then you can start the process now.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Overseas connections are highlighted during August. This could be friends, family or colleagues from another country or perhaps work-related projects. Something or someone is challenging your self-esteem. You need to stay aligned with your own higher purpose, what serves your personal growth. Soul-centred activities are called for. Money matters are also highlighted. You are likely to take on projects now to help boost your financial coffers. As long as these align with your personal values then you are heading in the right direction. Focus on self-worth and all else falls into place.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
The planets continue to crowd your Zodiac Sign calling for self-development. Your own health and happiness are important. So, as you shoulder responsibilities you need to also create some much-needed “me time”. You have the ability to slowly but steadily build on past achievements, and work towards a new and more satisfying lifestyle. Obstacles are likely but these simply sharpen your resolve. You are aware of the cycles that are at play in your life and able to work with these changes of season. Economical and metaphysical matters may be particularly satisfying.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
In many ways 2020 is a year of preparation for Aquarius. You are getting ready to have your time in the Sun in 2021. So, the questions are: What are your priorities? What areas of your life would you like to work on now to reap rewards next year? You don’t need an instant answer. During August you can ponder these questions. You may like to withdraw from society a little to contemplate. Partnerships are also highlighted this month. This could be a business or personal union that is requiring your attention.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Health is your focus during August. The word health refers to a state of complete emotional, mental and physical well-being. So, the question is: Are you in optimum health in all of these areas and if not, how can you improve your health? It is time for you to seek a good work/life balance so that you can experience good health. As a Pisces you can pursue alternative health paths, as well as the orthodox. Prayer, meditation, art, music and nature can all be the focus now. Small animals may also provide solace right now.
