The hot august nights are just around the corner as we move into the start of a new month. The month of August is all about abundance, healing, and completion. It is a time when we get ready to transition out of the summer season and prepare for the cooler months just beyond the horizon, helping us to slow down and tie up any loose ends we may be holding onto.
With that said, this month in astrology, we will be kicking off in the Leo sign, who is sure to guide signs with confidence into a season all about leveling themselves up. With Leo’s fun, sun-child nature, this could also have the signs focusing more on their creative endeavors and their self-care routine, as well as help them channel a more fun-loving and optimistic outlook towards life in general. Lughnasadh, the first harvest celebration, also kicks off on August 1st, and encourages us to slow down and be grateful for the blessings in our life. This energy is sure to remind the signs of the importance of gratitude, appreciating what you have, and never taking anything for granted.
To go along with this, the planets will also bring their own influence this month that is sure to take the signs for a ride. For starters, Mercury will enter Virgo near the beginning of the month, setting the tone for a more grounded and practical approach to our life with increased communication skills. Then, Venus in Leo will make its way into our space near the second week of the month, bringing a more confident and affectionate approach to your love life. We then enter Virgo’s birthday season on August 23rd, bringing a more practical, hard-working influence to our life that could have us picking up the pace on our goals with a logical and independent new attitude. And finally, a retrograde in Uranus in the Taurus begins on the 24th, directing our focus toward building more stability within ourselves and making the necessary changes to do so, even if it’s not easy.
As you can see, August is likely to bring many unique energies to our lives that are sure to help us heal and transform like no other. But, to give you some deeper insight into what you can expect this month, today, we're going to share our August horoscope and touch on what energies and changes each Zodiac sign can expect throughout the month, and how you can adjust your life to make the most of it.
Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
Starting with the Aries, August is likely to bring a month of transformation to you. With the inspiring and confident energy of Leo leading the way for the next several weeks, this could help you energize your goals but also help you to connect deeper with yourself and your emotions. Keep your momentum in your life if you wish, but also find time to slow down and spend time with your inner self equally as much. Truly, this could help invoke a more inspired, optimistic, and courageous attitude in your life, which could have you leaping farther than before toward your dreams and help you to feel more energetic toward life in general. More than anything, have the courage to try new things mentally and emotionally this month, Aries, even if they aren't what you're used to.
In your career, August is likely to bring some adjustments to your career. This could have you finding new goals or a new perspective in reaching current goals. Be courageous and bold, but don’t act without thinking it through. New opportunities could be on the horizon, but they need time. Take this time to plan things out carefully rather than acting on them too quickly.
In love, August could bring couples through transitions this month that could either be good or bad. Couples with issues may decide to take time apart this month, while couples in a healthy relationship could find a new serene feeling comes to them this month, which could set the tone for a positive month perfect for building a stronger connection. For singles, with the magnetic Leo energy boosting your confidence, this could be a good month to put yourself out there. Flaunt your stuff and live for the moment, Aries. Who knows who your charm could pull in.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th):
For the Taurus, a month of opportunity is likely to be around the corner for you. With change in the air, this could push you into a new era in your life and could allow you to focus deeper on yourself and your personal life. This could have you putting more time into meaningful connections with loved ones, taking time to work on yourself, and even directing more of a focus towards your creative endeavors. Whatever you do, the Leo energy is likely to tell you that it’s time to stop putting your well-being on the back burner and put yourself first for a while.
In your career, this month could feel a bit up and down, and you could find yourself feeling frustrated with the lack of progress at times. If you want to truly progress, you may need to reevaluate your approach and take some time to slow down and not push so hard. Try to go with the flow this month rather than pushing your own agenda and see where the Universe takes you.
In love, this month is likely to be a month of progress for your relationship that could help you and your partner open a new door in love. This is a time for honest communication and a time to release any grudges you’ve been holding onto and make way for new beginnings. For singles, this month is all about listening to your heart and chasing after new love if you’re ready. With Venus’s influence alongside the lustful Leo, your charm is likely to ignite and give you better luck at finding new love. Put your heart out there and allow your inner voice to serve as your guide. If you listen, the Leo is sure to help you find a love that is worthy of your heart in no time.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th):
For the Gemini, while you love to get out and stay busy, even you may find yourself feeling a bit burnt out this month and may need to focus more on self-care. For that reason, you should take some time to refill your energy bar before embarking on any new adventures this month. Pick up some hobbies, have a night in, or spend some time with friends, but remember not to push yourself. Balance is key this month, Gem. And if you take the time to recharge your batteries for a little while, you’re sure to have the energy to leap into new adventures in no time.
In your career, this could be a good month for you to build new connections in the workplace. This could bring a new sense of happiness and excitement to your work. This is also likely to have a positive effect on your productivity and may help you progress more at your job. Keep up the great work, Gem!
In love, August could be an excellent month for you and your partner to spend some more time together. You two are likely to get along a lot better this month, thanks to the planetary influences. For that reason, take this as an opportunity to dedicate some much-needed time together and make some new memories. For singles, with how much you love to get out, there’s potential for new love connections to blossom this month. However, just make sure you’re not taking on more than you can handle. With self-care as a theme this month, remember to put your well-being first before you take on something new.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd):
For the Cancer, after a high-energy month in July, you’re likely more than ready to slow down and take it easy in August. With Leo’s self-care need pushing you to wind down, this is an excellent month to live life a little more slowly and take time to recharge your energy. Whatever it is that helps you relax––whether it’s spending time with family, taking a bath, reading, or watching your favorite movies, make sure you make plenty of time for this all month long and make your well-being your biggest priority. If you do that, you’re likely to find yourself feeling more energized by the month's end, ready to take a chance on some wonderful new beginnings.
In your career, August could bring a change of perspective to your job. If you’re happy at work, nothing too exciting is likely to happen this month, and you should be able to move through problems easily. However, if you aren’t happy at your current job, this may be the time to start acting on it. Think about it for a while and weigh out the pros and cons and see how you feel. If change is in order, trust your heart to lead the way to the right decision.
In love, relationships could experience some minor problems this month that could leave you feeling a bit moody, and you may need to step back and study the problem for a while. Talk it through and keep it mature, and you’ll likely overcome problems easily. For singles, with a fresh and rejuvenated attitude, you could find yourself feeling more optimistic and outgoing in love this month, which may up your chances of finding a lasting connection. Follow your heart and trust your intuition to guide the way to where you’re meant to be and who you’re meant to be with this month.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd):
For the Leo, it’s your birthday season, mighty lion, and you’re likely to spend it feeling like the king you are. With an energetic, confident, and mighty approach to life this month, you could find yourself focusing more on all of the soul-enriching things in your life. From self-care to family connections, this month is all about focusing on the things you love. However, that doesn’t mean there won’t be challenges along the way. In fact, you could find some situations push you to the limits this month but also help you to gain a wise new perspective in your life. More than anything, follow your heart this month but be sure to maintain a good balance in your life to avoid pushing yourself too much.
In your career, this month could bring the potential for some new opportunities at work. You may be approached with a new offer or may feel change is in order with where your life is currently headed. Either way, if something does arise, be sure to think it through before you act on it. This may be a good time for you to take a step back and get a second opinion from someone close to you if you’re planning on making a decision in the near future.
In love, while we linger in your season, your charm is likely to be on fire this month, which could make way for a passionate connection between partners. This could help to spark new flames in a stagnant love and have you trying new things together. Just don’t let the heat of the flames stir up arguments between you two, as this could have the opposite effect. You’ll have to tread this border carefully to avoid any issues. For singles, while your charm is likely to be ignited this month, you may want to think before you leap into new love right away. Honestly, it could be a good month to just focus on you and have some fun without a new relationship commitment. Whatever you do, take things slow, and don’t force any new connections month, mighty lion.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd):
For the Virgo, it’s also your birthday season, and you’re likely to start the month feeling happy and grounded in yourself. All around, things are likely to feel pretty serene and positive, and you aren’t likely to have much to complain about. All month long, relaxation is likely to be a theme for you, and you’re likely to prioritize a slower approach to your usual routine. This could have you spending more time enjoying the world around you, as well as making some memories with those you hold dear. Either way, this month is all about finding balance and zen, so try to adjust your life to meet this so you can soak up all the good vibes lingering around you.
In your career, this month is likely to be all about networking. You may have certain things you’re hoping to reach in your career but may need a little help in getting there. Do what you can to learn your way on your own, but don’t be afraid to reach out to others for a little help. You may find yourself learning new skills and expanding more than you thought you could with a little help from those around you.
In love, August could be an opportunistic month for partners to get out and have some fun. Whether you plan a trip, pick up a new hobby, or just try something new, spending time together is sure to invite some new waves of romance to your shores. For singles, the influence of Venus and Leo is likely to bring some luck to your love life. If you’ve been looking for someone to cuddle up with for the remainder of these hot summer nights, this month may bring you several new opportunities to find someone new. Keep your eyes and heart open because you never know where new love may be hiding.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd):
For the Libra, you may find yourself feeling out of your element at the start of the month. However, with a change or perspective, things are likely to level out and have you feeling more optimistic and energetic for the future. As time progresses, this could even inspire you to expand and try new things. With inspiration and optimism leading the way, your mind is sure to be racing with new ideas, and you aren’t likely to let anything get in the way of them. Channel your inner strength, and don’t let fear stop you now.
In your career, you may face some obstacles with progress and achievement this month, which could have you feeling frustrated. The best thing to do right now is just taking things slow, step back, and collect yourself. This is not a time for bold action or overexertion of energy. Look at problems from the outside to try to gain a new perspective. This may be the key to pushing beyond your previous limitations, but you won’t know until you try.
In love, new opportunities in love could surround couples this month, which could pave the way toward a new chapter in love. As a result, you may feel more passionate with each other, which could have your minds drifting to dreams of the future. Enjoy this time while it’s here, Libra, and do all that you can together to make the most of it. For singles, with Venus and Leo’s influence, you’re likely to feel confident in attracting something new this month and may find yourself embarking on a new journey in love and self-love as a result. Be open to love in the most unlikely places and see where something new and unexpected could take you.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st):
For the Scorpio, this month is likely to highlight all things you. With Leo and Venus both bringing the energies of self-care and pampering to your space, this may be a good month for you to slow down and put more of a focus on yourself. Try to live life a little more slowly and direct your focus towards caring for yourself for a while. Take it easy, take it slow, and try to just focus on nurturing your soul this month. This could ultimately help to pave the way to a more inspired, positive, and empowered approach to your life in no time.
In your career, this month could bring a new approach to your work life. If you’ve been unsure about where you’re going, this month may help to offer clarity to the right direction and help you find your way a little easier. Don’t be afraid to push harder this month and take more risks in reaching your dreams; just think it through first. Above all else, this is likely to be a good month to readjust and reconnect with your destined path.
In love, you and your partner could run into some obstacles together this month, which may test the strength of your connection. Try to handle the situation in a respectful and mature way, and be open to each other’s perspectives on the situation. If you can push through it, this may help to strengthen your connection moving forward. For singles, you could take a dreamy approach to love this month, which could have you living in a daze of hope and optimism for something new. This is a great time to ask yourself what you truly want and need from love before you go chasing after it. Not to mention, a little careful reflection of this may increase your chances of finding something successful later on.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st):
For the Sagittarius, August could bring some changes to your personal life. Like the change of the season as we make our way closer to fall, you could find yourself leveling up this month, which could have you feeling a need to expand in your life. From expanding your mind, your productivity, and even your social circle, you’re likely to develop a new inspired approach to life this month that could have you wanting to try harder to live your life a little more fully. Dream bigger, and try to make the most of the moment, Sag. With the direction the energy is going, this is likely to be a great month to chase after some new opportunities.
In your career, this could be a busy month at work for you this month. You may want to take it easy and slow in the workplace, but your job may have other plans that could keep you quite busy. Despite this, try not to overwork yourself, Sag. Maintaining a good balance between work and play is essential if you want to avoid burning out. Take plenty of time to rest and unwind.
In love, couples may find themselves going through some ups and downs this month. While some moments may feel close and intimate, others could drag and push you apart. You two will need to try to make the most of both situations if you want to keep your love flourishing. For singles, with Leo’s influence, you may find yourself feeling more confident in love this month, which could have you being bolder in trying to find it. Follow your heart, and don’t be afraid to put yourself out there, Sag. Something truly incredible may just be waiting around the corner for you.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th):
For the Capricorn, August is likely to be an exciting and energetic month for you. With so much craziness likely already going on for you these past few months, August is likely to bring a more rejuvenating approach to your life. While high energy is likely to continue leading the way, instead of putting it into endless work, this could have you focusing more on the things that empower your life, such as loved ones, friends, and hobbies that feed the soul. Above all else, taking the proper time to just focus on rejuvenating your inner self may help to bring clarity and inspiration to your future endeavors and could inspire a positive new approach to your life overall, so make sure you make plenty of time for it this month.
In your career, with some rejuvenating new energy guiding your way this month, you may find that you feel more inspired in your work life. This could have you putting in extra work to achieve something new, look for new ways to grow your skills, or just have you feeling more optimistic about the future at this job. Whatever it is, this is likely to be a good month to gain a new and improved attitude towards your professional future.
In love, for couples, the energetic influences this month could help partners to set a new standard and tone in love. If there have been problems in the past you’ve been working on, this may be a good time to really start implementing those changes and begin building a new connection. Keep it open, honest, and respectful to help things run more smoothly. For singles, this could be a month of fun for those looking for a new connection. While you may not find something right off the bat, you could find some potential for new love this month and may play around with it before you really take it seriously. Have some fun, Cap. There’s no need to rush.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th):
For the Aquarius, like many of the signs, thanks to Leo’s influence, you could find yourself feeling more energetic and excited about your life this month. This could have you seeking some new adventures with friends, making memories with loved ones, and all around, just enjoying life more. Live for the moment, and focus on what it is that your heart desires.
In your career, you may go through some transitions in the workplace this month. At times, things may seem like they’re running smoothly. Other times, it could seem you’re fighting an uphill battle. If this is the case, take some time to analyze your approach and readjust yourself, if needed. It may take time to see results with where you’re going, but things are likely to change direction eventually if you keep working at it. Don’t give up now.
In love, this month is likely to run smoothly for partners. With a loving influence from Venus guiding the way, partners could find themselves growing closer and spending more time with one another than before. This could ignite new flames of passion between you two and could potentially open a new chapter of love for you both. For singles, while love is possible in your social sector, you may take this month to just focus on yourself. From caring for yourself to nurturing your passions, this may be a good time to just do you, Aqua, and if that’s the case, that’s okay too and is likely to welcome a positive new aura to your life and well-being in no time.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th):
For the Pisces, you may find yourself pushed to the limits this month. Things may not necessarily be going the way you want them to this month, and you could find yourself frustrated with a lack of control. However, not all is bad. In fact, this may be a beautiful learning experience for you. Instead of pushing to gain control, try to just go with the flow this month and see where life takes you. Times of turmoil are when the biggest lessons are to be learned. Trust the Universe and allow it to guide you somewhere new where you can truly flourish.
For your career, while things may be a bit tense in other areas of your life, your work life is likely to remain unaffected, for the most part. While you could have minor disagreements with those around you, work is likely to be a good place for you to let go of any tense energy you’re holding onto and become more productive with your professional endeavors through it. Just remember to maintain a healthy balance between work and rest this month to avoid becoming even more tense.
In love, for couples, some tender moments of love could await you this month, and you may find yourself turning to your partner to lean on. Make the most of this romantic energy now, and don’t let outside stresses affect your relationship. Keep this your safe place. For singles, love may not be the first thing on your mind right now, but if it comes to you, you aren’t likely to turn away. If you’re ready for new love, try and chase after it, Pisces. If not, take your time and see what the Universe brings to you when the time is right.
Overall, the horoscope for the month of August predicts that this month is likely to bring many unique energies to the table. From changes in love to a more laid-back approach to life, August is all about getting more in touch with yourself, putting your needs first, and reconnecting more with the things that truly feed your soul. Spend some time with loved ones, up your self-care routine, and chase after your dreams more than before. This is a month of healing and opportunity, so do whatever you can to soak up all the good vibes around you and make the most of it.
