Monthly General Horoscopes - August 2018

Aries

On the surface this is an uncomplicated month and in fact a stunning month across many aspects of your life. The problem you might face, especially in the early days of the month, is the fallout from the professional pressure or work/life balance tension of the last few months and a total lunar eclipse in the final days of July. Yet on the other side you're about to reap the benefits big time. The main tension over recent months has come from pressure between your home and professional lives. Yet with the Sun no longer in your home and family sector, this has dropped back. Yet as opportunities literally explode across the income, work and career fronts, all of a sudden work/life balance is the gift that will help you pace yourself and capitalise on all the available options. These include Mars retrograding back into your career sector on the 13th August, new developments on the job front and the doors opening to untapped income potential. Everything comes together at the right time, to make this an extraordinary month across the income, work and career fronts. This could have been a problem, if you hadn't just been through work/life balance boot camp. For with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of August in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and a solar eclipse here on the 11th August, life won't be allowed to become all work and no play. Even if the Sun will contribute to a new charge on the job front from the 23rd August, until then he doesn't care how well the stars align professionally, life can't be all work and no play. With Venus opening the door to special relationship developments from the 7th August, you can have it all, but only with the right work/life balance.

Taurus

While the professional pressure or work/life balance tension that may have come to a head with a vengeance in the final eight days of July have started to ease back, this is something you may still be reeling from. It was the Sun's return to your home and family sector on the 23rd July that triggered this, something that happens at this time every year, without creating this kind of cacophony of push back. For the first time in 47 years the Sun returned to find Mars in opposition in your career sector. Within hours of the Sun and Mars moving into opposition the Moon not only returned to your career sector, but created the first total lunar eclipse here since 1989. This was good news professionally, giving career matters a major push that Mars will continue to exploit until retrograding back out on the 13th August. With Venus returning to your work sector on the 7th August to begin some extraordinary months on the job front, with developments continuing to unfold through to early December, this professional momentum is in safe hands. Yet with the Sun in your home and family sector until the 23rd August and Mercury all month, a need for balance between your home and professional lives remains. The Moon only left your career sector on the 30th July, so professional pressure or work/life balance tensions are only just dialling back. However, this is where you have luck and the gods on your side. For while this is a stunning month for job and career matters and work/life balance continues to be policed, there are some playful and adventurous forces in play all month. As well as balancing things out, you will find it relatively easy to maintain a balance between work and play, which will make work/life balance a lot easier to achieve.

Gemini

While many of your cosmic mates are still reeling from the onslaught of both a total lunar eclipse and an opposition with the Sun and Mars late last month, you're likely to be feeling invigorated by it. That is because both the lunar eclipse and Mars are in an adventurous part of your chart, while the Sun is in a smart and intellectually savvy part of your chart. When they clashed it was more likely to stimulate some out of the box thinking, just as you were being pushed out of your comfort zone. The Moon has moved on, but until retrograding back out of your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on the 13th August, Mars continues to fuel a passion for adventure, while holding the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential. Venus' return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on the 7th August will give Mars a boost in confidence in his final days, while creating a potent mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia. Whatever tension or roadblocks faced in the final days of July are now behind you, making way for a sense of liberation this month. Yet while this is also a stunning month on the job front, with Jupiter starting to gain some traction in his first full month in direct motion in your work sector, this is unlikely to create a conflict. While the pace will pick up on the job front, even without next month being the point where everything really starts to come together, a fun and adventurous focus is able to run side by side work and job matters. Able to operate in their own lane and not compete with each other, as long as you're mindful of a need for balance between work and play there is no reason why you can't have it all.

Cancer

There is a high chance that you might enter August with frayed nerves and you may even be in protection mode, putting up barriers to protect yourself against the next wave. Except the next wave is unlikely to come. It was the Sun's departure from Cancer on the 23rd July that brought your birthday month to a close, while also taking away the pressure between the Sun and Saturn and Pluto in your relationship sector. Yet no sooner did any personal and/or relationship tension drop back than it may have felt like you had jumped from the frying pan into the fire. For from the moment the Sun returned to your income sector there was financial tension. The Sun returned to find Mars on the other side of the sky in your financial sector, for the first time in 47 years. They moved into opposition just as the Moon returned ahead of a total lunar eclipse in your financial sector on the 28th July, the first here in three decades. The Moon left on the 30th July and any financial tension is already dropping back. But until Mars retrogrades back out of your financial sector on the 13th August, there is a need for balance between money coming in and money going out. Yet as dire as this might have felt at the time, this was in fact the start of a major breakthrough, with a solar eclipse in your income sector on the 11th August turning things around. This was the push that untapped financial and income potential needed, with a chance to enjoy the benefits on the other side. In the meantime, in his first full month in direct motion in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, Jupiter is working to bring the fun and colour back into your life. With five months of the year to go, 90 percent of the challenges are now behind you.

Leo

For the second time in as many years, the New Moon in the heart of your birthday month is a solar eclipse and that is no surprise, with a connection between this month's solar eclipse and the solar eclipse last August. For the second time in just 18 years, you have moved into your birthday month and new solar year to find the North Node here, a force that is not only responsible for creating eclipses, but in moving your life forward in a positive, powerful and unseen way. A solar eclipse is basically a hand reaching out from the future and with a sign that says 'this way'. Last August's eclipse was a total solar eclipse and while the solar eclipse on the 11th August is a partial eclipse, with so much having been building behind the scenes over the last 12 months, whatever this triggers will unleash a flood tide of potential. Because solar eclipses are the future reaching back and pointing the way forward, while giving things a nudge, their importance is not always recognised at the time. It is only in hindsight that you'll look back and appreciate the significance of what this triggered. The New Moon that falls during your birthday month is a chance to commit to your new solar year, the future and the journey ahead, but also to your game plan and resolutions. Yet as an eclipsing New Moon, there is a need to focus less on the game plan and more on committing to moving with the tide. In the meantime, while any personal and/or relationship tension from a total lunar eclipse on the relationship front late last month is easing back, the doors will remain open to the past and second chances on the relationship front until the 13th August. This is when Mars will retrograde out of your relationship sector. With Venus returning to your communication sector on the 7th August, she'll be on hand to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. In the meantime, you have reached a stunning month across the income, work and career fronts.

Virgo

While the Sun, as he does at the same time every year, won't return to Virgo until the 23rd August, you start the month with Venus and Ceres already here. Venus has already been here for three weeks by the time you move into the new month, giving your heart a voice weeks before your birthday month and new solar year even begins. With Ceres, queen of nurturing making her first visit to Virgo in four years, while Venus updates your desires and expectations for a new solar year that hasn't even begun, Ceres is updating your needs and priorities. Venus will leave on the 7th August but Ceres will stay on, making sure that when your birthday month and new solar year begins on the 23rd August, you know what you want and need from the get go. In the meantime, this allows Venus to move into your income sector, returning just six days before Mars retrogrades back out of your work sector on the 13th August. After a total lunar eclipse on the job front last month and Mars here at this time of year for the first time in 47 years, as Venus returns to kick off the most lucrative months of 2018, she won't believe her luck. This is the start of relationship between income and job forces that will continue for months. For while Mars will retrograde back into a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on the 13th August, he'll turn direct on the 28th August and return to your work sector next month. During his short time back in a playful part of your chart, Mars will be swept up in a stunning mix of playful and adventurous forces. While this is a stunning month for job and income matters, there is also the right balance between work and play.

Libra

Your new birthday month and new solar year doesn't begin until the Sun returns to Libra on 23rd September, something that happens at the same time every year, always has and always will. While Venus and Mercury will always move with the Sun, they can and do sometimes get ahead and when they get too far ahead they are pulled back. This year this is exactly what happens when Venus and you get to benefit from both her early return on the 7th August and the fact that she will be pulled back for a double dip visit in a few months' time. Because Venus returns so far ahead of the Sun, even though she is here until the 9th September she'll still be gone before your birthday month and new solar year begins. This allows Venus to make a stand alone visit. Venus will return for a double dip visit after your birthday month is over and it is then that she will focus on updating your desires and expectations for your new solar year. Because she will return and your birthday month is still so far away, this means Venus can save that for later, focusing more simply on being the planet of love. Venus returns to find Mars not only in your romantic sector, but in retrograde motion here for the first time in 47 years. After a total lunar eclipse in this fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart late last month, Venus returns to find the atmosphere already romantically charged. Venus also returns to find both planets in your relationship sector in retrograde motion, but for the first time in four decades that Chiron, planet of healing is on board. While most areas of your chart are looking good this month, it is your relationships, matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative that look especially good.

Scorpio

You're at a point in your solar year where, with your birthday month and new solar year just a few months away, you're heading into the home straight. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your career sector and with a solar eclipse here on 11th August, this should be a good month professionally. With auspicious income developments ahead, this is also a chance to get your professional ducks in a row. However, after some work/life balance reminders late last month and Mercury in retrograde motion in your career sector until the 19th August, there is a need to pace yourself. The biggest influence on you personally this month is from Jupiter, with the planet of luck and expansion spending his first full month in direct motion in Scorpio. While Jupiter won't leave until the 9th November and Venus will return early next month to spend the next two months making his final months count, you will find that you're finally breaking free from the past's suction. With Jupiter not leaving until early November, the job of laying down the foundations and planting the seeds for this new 12 year cycle of expansion is now back on track. In the meantime, while there is still a sense of nostalgia and it is set to become even stronger, this is contained to one area of your life. With Neptune already in retrograde motion in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart Venus, planet of love's return to a nostalgic part of your chart on the 7th August will add to a sense of romantic nostalgia already in the air. In the meantime, when Mars retrogrades back out of your home and family sector on the 13th August, this will be good news for your relationships. As well as work/life balance tension dropping back, Mars dips back into your communication sector in order to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.

Sagittarius

August is a month when a balance between work and play is paramount and when the lines between the two are often blurred. The Sun will always start this month in an adventurous part of your chart, but will always end the month in your career sector. For the Sun this is a clear line in the sand, with his return to your career sector on the 23rd August each year, the point when it is time to get serious about your professional game. But for Venus and Mercury, who travel alongside the Sun, nothing is ever that clear cut. While the Sun won't leave your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery and return to your career sector until the 23rd August, you start the month with Venus already there. And when the Sun leaves Mercury will stay on, ensuring that while things do become more serious professionally, a sense of adventure is still in play. In retrograde motion until the 19th August, Mercury is connecting with the two planets in retrograde motion in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, creating a mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia. Yet even before the Sun returns to your career sector there is something extraordinary in play across the income, work and career fronts. What began last month as fairly low key advantages across all three fronts, turns into something a lot more powerful this month. This makes a balance between work and play important from the get go. However that shouldn't be too hard, with Venus returning to a social and serendipitous part of your chart on the 7th August. With the right balance between work, play and adventure, this can be an exciting and vibrant month.

Capricorn

August is a month that is being defined by a mix of the ordinary and the extraordinary, along with the familiar and the unfamiliar. The ordinary is that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your financial sector, with the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters. The extraordinary is that not only is the New Moon here on the 11th August a solar eclipse, but for the first time in 47 years you start the month with Mars in your income sector. This was a problem when the Sun returned to your financial sector last month, moving into opposition with Mars in the lead up to a total lunar eclipse on the income front, on the 28th July. Any financial tension this may have created is dialling back, but this has given both income and money matters a shakeup, which is already having auspicious consequences. With a lot of untapped potential on both fronts, this was the pressure needed to topple the flood banks holding things back. With Mars not retrograding out of your income sector until the 13th August, he'll still be here when Venus returns to your career sector on the 7th August. This is early in the year for Venus to return but just as well she does. Venus' mission to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction will coincide with Mars' mission to exploit as much income potential as possible. Venus is the planet of money, so will work to make his final days as lucrative as possible. In the meantime, Venus will start the month in an adventurous part of your chart, the Sun will end the month here and Ceres is here all month, not only keeping a sense of adventure in play but a mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia. Meanwhile, Mars will retrograde back into Capricorn on the 13th August for a rare double dip visit.

Aquarius

To have any planetary activity in Aquarius at this time of year is unusual and even more so to not only have Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos here but in retrograde motion, for the first time in 47 years. Yet Mars was here when you also had a rare total lunar eclipse in Aquarius late last month, something the Moon only wrapped up on the 30th July. This lunar eclipse was a personal wakeup call, while Mars is here to give you the passion and warrior spirit to throw yourself into whatever this has triggered. Mars will retrograde back out on the 13th August, but will return to Aquarius to start over from scratch on the 11th September. In the meantime, Jupiter is spending his first full month in direct motion in your career sector, with career matters starting to gain some traction. With the Sun having left your work sector last month there is no longer the work tension and job pressure, but while the urgency and any stress has dropped back, Jupiter is helping to keep the wheels turning on the job front as well. This is a chance to let work and job matters settle and run their course, while career matters will get their real boost when Venus returns early next month. By then Mars will be back in Aquarius, this time in direct motion and with your passions and warrior spirit fuelled. Contributing to a more relaxed feel this month is Venus' return to an adventurous part of your chart on the 7th August, for what is the first of two visits she will make over the coming months. And with the Sun in your relationship sector until the 23rd August, Mercury in retrograde motion here until the 19th August and here until early next month, this is also an important month on the relationship front. While the lunar eclipse late last month may have created some relationship tension Mercury, planet of communication is already working to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.

Pisces

While August is usually a busy month for you, this is being modified by a need to work smarter and also by a call from the professional gods themselves to take things slowly. When the Sun returned to your work sector on the 23rd July, something he does at that time every year, it was to spend a month shining the solar spotlight on your work situation and job matters. With a solar eclipse on the job front on the 11th August creating the potential for auspicious new beginnings, there was every reason to throw yourself into the deep end from the get go. Except you were unlikely to have got away with it. Not only did the Sun return to find Mars in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, with the wind down of your old Mars cycle underway, but a total lunar eclipse there on the 28th July might have stopped you in your tracks. Fortunately, Mercury's retrograde turn in your work sector two days earlier had already seen the professional gods apply their emergency brake, otherwise you would have crashed head first into this. As Mars and the North Node demanded a slower approach, the professional gods had already decided on a slower approach. This more measured approach allows you to better enjoy this month's other delights, which include Jupiter's first full month in direct motion in an adventurous part of your chart. This is also a stunning month for communication and for personal and professional networking, friendship and relationship building in general. The Sun only left a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on the 23rd July, with even the professional gods realising the importance of having a balance between work and play. A solar eclipse on the 11th August and Mercury's direct turn on the 19th August will give work and job matters all the traction they need.
