August 2021 Monthly Horoscope
As we welcome in the warm month of August, we kick off the birthday season of the mighty lion sign, Leo, preparing us for an inspired, confident, and roaring month of creativity and opportunity. Be prepared for some major inspiration in your creative endeavors, as well as a boost in your personal power, as these are what this glamorous fire sign is all about. But, aside from the influence of the daring Leo, we will also be welcoming in some other rambunctious energy this month with the retrograde of 4 planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, and Uranus), which is likely to leave the energy in the air a little chaotic and unpredictable. We may find ourselves in a bit of a mental fog as we revisit energies, problems, and people of the past and must tread very carefully through each of them.
Aside from this, August will also be bringing the Lionsgate Portal, which will be coinciding with the new moon on August 8th. This is a powerful day of cosmic opportunity that only comes once a year as we connect with higher frequencies and move into alignment with our divine selves. It is also a very lucky day for manifestation and abundance work, so get ready for some karmic energy to take place. The month will then end in the earth sign of the humble Virgo and welcome in a full moon in Aquarius, bringing individualism, community, and a final close to certain doors in our life.  This is not a time to act rashly. 
Overall, August is expected to be a highly energetic month full of opportunities for new creative outlets and a better alignment with our divine selves overall. But to give you a deeper look into what you can expect personally, today, we're going to touch on what energies and changes each Zodiac sign can expect to feel throughout the powerful month of August and how you can truly make the most of it. Let’s get started.
 Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Starting with the Aries, August is predicted to be a very rewarding month for you in all aspects of your life. Over the last few months, you’ve been working very hard and have been charging ahead at new opportunities, truly giving them your all, and it’s finally about to start paying off. Now is a great time to celebrate your hard work and let loose, and the fun-loving Leo is sure to help you do just that.
In your career, you’ve been putting in a lot of effort to achieve great things these last few months, and while you are certainly on your way, the month of August isn’t likely to be when you reach the finish line. And really, it may prove to be much less exciting in the workplace overall. However, you shouldn’t take this as a sign of stagnation, but more as a time of rest from the hard work you have been putting in, as you know more than anyone that all work and no play isn’t good for anyone’s sake. Therefore, you can use this time to hone in on your skills and better improve yourself for your workplace for the future.
In love, your relationship should remain flourishing throughout most of August, with a few bumps in the road possible within the first half of the month. By the end of August, however, things should be running smoothly, and your mind may be drifting towards the future with that special someone. If you are single, August has a high chance of bringing new love into your life, and you have all the means to make it happen. Your charisma and confidence are on fire now, thanks to the flamboyant Leo; therefore, if you want to get a new lover this month, you shouldn’t have any problem.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20):
For the Taurus, August is predicted to be a month of healing, rejuvenation, and letting go. Throughout this transitional month, influence from the Sun and Mercury will be pushing you to delve into some reflection on the past, which could leave you feeling mixed in your emotions. And as an earth sign, this could throw you for a major whirl. However, you have to remember that these emotions are stirring for a reason, dear Taurus, and it’s so you can overcome any emotional pain you’re holding onto. For that reason, this month will be filled with some major closet cleaning, so to speak, but will have you coming out a much stronger person. 
In your career, you can expect a pretty steady month ahead. Things should be relatively positive in the workplace, and you shouldn’t have any issues accomplishing all the tasks at hand. And if you keep up your current work ethic, there may be some positive rewards coming your way towards the end of the month or early September. Keep on grinding.
Romantically, your love life is likely to feature some major highs and lows this month. For the first half of the month, things are expected to be smooth sailing and positive, while the second half is likely to feature some bumps in the road. This will certainly test your patience, and you will need to learn the true meaning of compromise in order to make it work. If you are single, you may draw in some quick and steamy relationships this month, and you aren’t made about it. Have your fun; just make sure you don’t get too crazy, Taurus. 
 Gemini (May 21 - June 20):
For the Gemini, the month of August is likely to bring about new confidence, expression, and forward movement into your space. Creativity will be a huge focus for you this month as you come up with all kinds of new and wonderful ideas and try to figure out the best way to express them. 
In your career, you may be facing some frustration in the workspace. You’ve been working so hard to make bigger moves and advancements, but it just doesn’t seem to be paying off quite yet. Despite this, you are advised to try to remain patient a little bit longer. Everything takes time, and some things are worth waiting a little longer for, Gemini. Better things are likely to be on your horizon towards the end of the month; just keep grinding until then.
In love, you can expect a blissful month ahead full of sensuality, passion, and seduction. Your relationship is going to feel like when you were just first falling for one another, and it will be a truly beautiful time to spend with your partner. Make the most of this blissful period, Gemini. You certainly deserve it. If you are single, you’re likely to kick off the month feeling confident in your wooing power, thanks to the current planetary shifts. Because of this, luck will be on your side in terms of love, and it shouldn’t be hard for you to win over that special someone.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22):
For the Cancer, this month is going to be filled with a variety of mixed energies for you. As we move into the Leo season, your emotional nature will be challenged, and you’re likely to feel a little stuck in your head, unsure of how to express yourself. However, it will pay off, as all this turbulent thinking may help you realize that you aren’t happy with something in your life. Is it your job? Relationship? Financial choices? You aren’t sure, and this will require some major reflection to get to the bottom of it, and is overall a great idea to do before we reach the next full moon. Additionally, some self-care is also recommended this month, as you’ll definitely be in need of a little 1-on-1 pampering.
In your career, nothing major is expected to happen in the workplace this month, and you are likely to experience both ups and downs, but your finances should remain steady. However, you need to be careful about splurging this month, as you are feeling a need to pamper yourself a lot more than usual, thanks to the lion’s influence and emotional issues you may be going through. While there’s nothing wrong with this, just make sure you set a budget for spending this month to avoid any issues with your finances.
In love, for those in a relationship, there is likely to be a balance of both good and bad this month. Some bumps in the road and arguments may arise in the beginning and middle of the month but will make way for a passionate connection later on in the month. If you are single, the influence of Jupiter should help to guide you to someone new and deserving of your unique love. Allow your heart to be free, Cancer. 
Leo (July 23 - August 22):
For the mighty Leo, it’s your birthday season, and you’re going to be kicking off the month feeling hot. Your confidence will be beaming, your ego will be roaring, and you will all around feel like the glamorous lion you are. This is an auspicious time for new adventures and endeavors, and you are encouraged to pursue any new ideas that may arise.
In your career, expect some excellent opportunities to arise that could lead you to advancement. All around, the workplace should be enjoyable this month, and you will feel truly blessed. However, don’t let this excitement get the best of you, and make sure you keep up at this pace as much as possible to reap even better rewards in the future. 
In love, your relationship may experience some bumps in the road that could have you stepping back a bit. However, you shouldn’t act rashly on this, and instead, try to find new ways to love your partner in order to restore harmony. If you are single, don’t let your confidence and ego get the best of you if you’re searching for love, as this could drive away a number of potential partners. Do your best to stay grounded and humble, and you will be much more likely to make a romantic connection.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22):
For the Virgo, August is likely to be a rollercoaster of emotions for you, so to speak. While it is also your birthday month, the beginning is likely to have you off to a rough start. Starting the month, the influence of leftover energy from the Mercury and Sun conjunction from July will have things a little cloudy in your head as subconscious feelings begin to rise to the surface. This could leave you feeling a little detached and irritable. Do your best to be patient with yourself, Virgo. The best advice we could give you is to just take it one step at a time. This period of sensitivity will soon pass, and harmony will return to your life once more. You’ve got this. 
In your career, you’re likely to complete a lot of work this month, but with very little recognition or gain. This could cause you some frustration and irritation, but to put it simply, the stars are just not aligned for it this month. Therefore, don’t put all your eggs in one basket in terms of work, and just keep your head up. Things are bound to be brighter in your career sector soon. 
In love, because of the current planetary alignments happening, you may have some transformations and changes coming your way with your partner. However, change isn’t necessarily bad and could even mean that you and your partner grow closer than ever before. Therefore, you should do your best to make the most of it and let your partner know how loved they are. If you are single and looking for love, some quick flings may be easy to snag at the beginning of the month. However, if you’re looking for something a little more serious, you may have better luck in the future.
Libra (September 23 - October 22):
For the Libra, August is predicted to be a very magnetic month where your good karma will be returning, and your manifestations are likely to come to fruition. Starting off the month, Mercury and the Sun will be in conjunction on the last day of July, which will push you out of your comfort zone at the start of August and expand your horizons socially and romantically. However, with such change, you may also experience some small spells of stress and anxiety throughout the month due to Mars transitioning through Virgo. Don’t let them get the best of you, Libra; do what you can to focus on all the good things in your life instead.
In your career, August may prove to be a rather lucky and opportunistic month for you in terms of advancement. If you’ve been working hard to achieve something, you’ll likely receive gratification towards that job or idea. On top of that, there will also likely be multiple opportunities this month to make some important business connections. This will help to provide clarity and relief to any stress or worry you may have had about a particular job or opportunity.
In love, you can expect a very enlightening and harmonious month of love with your partner that is likely to provide a rewarding feeling more than anything. If you are single, this isn’t the luckiest month for you to make new romantic relationships with people, so it may be best to just focus on yourself for a little while. Some people from your past may also arise with interest once more throughout the month, and you are advised to tread very carefully here, Libra. Remember, the past is in the past for a reason. 
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21):
For the Scorpio, the month of August is predicted to be a month full of changes for you. This month, planetary changes with the Sun, Mercury, and Mars, are likely to highlight your professional life and set your ambition on fire. On top of that, this is also a month where truths may start to arise, and you may realize all the deceptions you told yourself or were told by others, especially around the new moon on the 8th. Above all else, you will find out who is truly on your side this month, and it will be very eye-opening.
In your career, you can expect a good month ahead in terms of money and finances. Everything in the office should be running smoothly, and with the help of Mars’s transition through Virgo this month in your 11th house, you are likely to feel very enthusiastic and focused at work, which will only result in better rewards in the future. Keep rocking, Scorpio; good things are on their way.
In love, you are likely to have a month of ups and downs, starting with some bigger bumps in the road towards the end of the month, and you may have difficulty seeing eye-to-eye with your partner. However, this is nothing a little open and honest communication can’t fix, so make sure you take the time to sit down and do so. For those who are single, this is a great month to pursue new love interests as your charisma and confidence is glowing, thanks to the help of the Leo. Put that charm to use, Scorpio, and go have a little fun! After all the hard work you’ve been putting in, you definitely deserve it.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21):
For the Sagittarius, this month is all about putting your nose to the grindstone and getting to work. Think of August as a transitional period towards getting you to where you want to be, which means this month may also seem a little boring. However, it is necessary for your divine growth. You will be kicking off the month with your ambition beaming, and this will have your eyes fixed on the future. Anything you dream, you can accomplish, Sagittarius. Don’t let anything or anybody stand in the way of that mentality. 
In your career, nothing too exciting will be happening at work this month, but you may find yourself taking on a larger workload than usual. The best thing you can do this month is put your money into saving and be conservative with your spending. While you may not be reaching the advancements you’d like at the moment, you can still make the most of this period in other ways, such as saving up, and it can certainly help to ease any mental stress you may be experiencing.
In love, the month of August is likely to bring a blissful union to your relationship with open communication and connection. This is likely to be a month when you and your partner are able to move forward with something and finally start the next chapter of your story. If you are single, you have a likely chance of meeting someone new if you put yourself out there. Don’t be afraid to give your heart to someone, Sag; it could result in something truly beautiful. 
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19):
For the Capricorn, August is likely to be a month of growth for you as you begin to expand your horizon to other ideas and interests. As an earth sign, you normally like to stick to a pretty consistent routine. But this month, you may find yourself a little more willing to try some new and crazy things, thanks to the influence of the spontaneous Leo. In addition to that, you’re also likely to feel highly creative this month due to the many planetary shifts that are happening in the background. Let your imagination go wild, and use this opportunity to pursue any endeavor you have been interested in. It may prove to be both mentally and financially rewarding in the long run.
In your career, if you were hoping for advancement, August doesn’t look too promising for you, and you may find yourself reaping little reward or gratification from your workplace. If you’ve been considering getting a new job or trying something new, now might be the time to start actively looking. If not, be prepared for a pretty stagnant month ahead with the potential for new opportunities later in the year.
In love, your relationship may push your buttons this month, and you are going to need to find a way to compromise with your partner in order to resolve it. Just make sure you handle any problems as soon as they arise to avoid any complications with it. If you are single, you have the most likely chance of finding someone new in the second half of the month. Have fun and be yourself, Cap; that’s all the advice you’ll need from us. 
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18):
For the Aquarius, the month of August will be full of some highs and some lows, but ultimately some great opportunities for growth. Your work-life is beaming, and you'll be accomplishing goals that you’ve been striving to reach for quite some time. However, you may also experience some setbacks in your personal life due to Mars transitioning through Virgo this month, which could leave you wanting to step back and collect yourself. Ending August, there will be a full moon in your sign which will have you feeling inspired but also highlighting any lingering worries you may have. Remember, the full moon is a time of letting go, so make sure you do what you can to make the most of that. 
In your career, you can expect things to be kept on schedule this month, which will have your work ethic and confidence soaring. If there’s been something you’ve been putting off working on, now is the time to tackle it and get it out of the way once and for all. Overall, this month should prove to be very gratifying in the workplace, with some great support from your peers.
In love, you’re likely to have some rough patches with your partner in the beginning of the month, but it won’t last. Do what you can to push aside any stubbornness or grudges you may be holding against your partner if you want to get through this quickly. If you are single, you may have some difficulties finding love this month, and it may be a good time to take a step back and focus on you for a bit, Aquarius, at least until someone that is truly deserving of your love comes along. Don’t jump into anything abruptly.


Pisces (February 19 - March 10):
And finally, for the Pisces, you may find yourself re-evaluating your life and working through some past resentments this August. This is majorly thanks to Mars moving through Virgo this month, stirring up some past frustrations for you. Be wary of how you handle this, Pisces, and remember to not take it out on other people. Aside from this, Mercury will be helping you to up your creative side this month, and you are encouraged to spend some time expressing yourself through music, art, or a personal hobby.
In your career, stress at work could make you feel a bit frustrated this month, leaving you doubting your future at a certain job. While this can be a difficult time, everything does happen for a reason, Pisces, and it may be time to start reflecting who you are, who you want to be, and if you are in true alignment with that right now at your current place of work. If not, it might be time to kick it to the curb.
In love, this should be a good month for those in relationships, and it’s likely you’re going to grow closer to your partner than you have in a while. However, make sure you keep outside stresses away from your relationship, such as problems at work or in your social circle, as it could cause unnecessary arguments with you and your partner. If you are single, you’re likely going to want to get out and meet some new people this month, and now is an excellent time for that. Truly, love is on your side right now, Pisces, so if you wanted to woo someone over, it wouldn’t be difficult. 
Conclusion
Overall, the month of August is going to be a transitional and karmic month full of divine opportunity and alignment for all. While at times this month may seem difficult, it will truly be one of the strongest months of 2021 for manifestations and inner growth. Do your best to align with the energy of this lucky month and allow it to guide you to where you need to be. Above all else, this month is about to show you just how real karma is and how powerful your intentions really are. Keep your eyes open for what you need to learn most from these energies. 
Happy August!

Mercury Retrograde DO's & DONT's
Mercury Retrograde DO's & DONT's

September 18, 2021

It’s yet again the transformative, emotional, and highly energetic time of the year, where we welcome in the notorious Mercury retrograde. Despite the fact that Mercury retrograde is an occurrence that happens multiple times each year, it never seems to fail to stir up the same old feelings of needing to bunker down and lie low for a few weeks. This is because, unlike planetary retrogrades, Mercury’s reversed influence can make our lives do a complete 180-degree turn, which can cause some difficulties in our communication, career development, and relationships. 


However, while Mercury retrograde tends to get a bad rep for its ability to completely change our lives, it can also be an excellent time to complete tasks, work on creative projects, as well as do some inner workings. With that said, today, we’re going to talk all about Mercury retrograde, what it is, and what you should and should not do during it.

September Horoscope
September Horoscope

August 31, 2021

As we welcome in the cooling harvest month of September, we make way for a transformative period of energetic change as we work to create better balance in our lives. We kick off this autumn month in the sign of the practical and goal-oriented Virgo, shifting our focus towards progression on our goals. This will provide the signs with some initial direction and clarity, which will help us to start the month feeling positive and rejuvenated. However, Mercury, the planet of communication and knowledge, will also be lurking in the background this month as it prepares to go retrograde for the third and final time this year, pushing us to do some inner reflection as we begin to work through stirred emotions. This could also bring about mental fog, miscommunication, and misunderstandings with partners, coworkers, and loved ones, so be prepared for some potential rough patches throughout the month. 


Towards the end of September, on the 23rd, we will then shift into the partnership-focused Zodiac sign of the Libra, which will turn our attention towards family, friends, and community as we continue to grow and strengthen relationships as well as our own independence. We will also reach the Autumn Equinox the day before this, on September 22nd, which is considered to be a truly divine time of balance, inner reflection, growth, and gratitude as we prepare for yet another change of season into a calmer, more stagnant time of the year. This is also the time of which the veil between our world and the spirit world is growing increasingly thin, upping our intuitive abilities and connection to the other side. For this reason, be prepared for some deeper spiritual movements to occur this day, as it is an incredibly significant time of year for magical workings.
