Your August 2017 Horoscope with Astrologer, Maya White

August 2017

Aries – (March 20 – April 18) This powerful and amazing month presents you with an opportunity to break barriers, especially those around relationships. You may feel preoccupied with other pressing matters, but don’t lose sight of the prize. There are some old, lingering bonds left over from the past that are still shadowing your dreams. Release is not difficult; just look within, claim your freedom, and jump for joy. Claim love.

Taurus– (April 19 – May 19) You can make great headway this month, Taurus. Yes, there are both lunar and solar eclipses, but if you remain focused, there are few obstructions. The secret is to remain clear about what is really important and not allow distractions to sway your attention. August delivers you to an inevitable tipping point, and it’s your responsibility to land on your feet. Monitor your balance every day.

Gemini– (May 20 – June 19) Words have such great power, Gemini, especially for you. And, with so much going on in Leo, the sign ruling your third house of communication, what you say and how you say it are highlighted now. You are creating a new reality and soon your thoughts will manifest into your daily life. It may feel insurmountable as you keep waiting for the ‘trick question’; but really, there is not one. Be bold and think positively.

Cancer(June 20 – July 21) Venus graces your sign for most of this month, so keep her always in your heart and energy field. Venus wants you to enjoy life and live it as a goddess (or, for the guys, in a godly way). There will be shifts and creaks as the eclipse season tunnels into your finances and net worth. You may be looking at a sudden advance in your situation, Cancer. Take it in stride, and buy something wonderful for the family.

Leo– (July 22 – August 21) You’re sitting in the heart of a cosmic chess game, and now, it’s your turn. It’s all about you; who you are, who you know, and how you relate to the world. The secret benefit here is: you’re being released from a financial bondage. How does it feel to be set free? You must get the paperwork in order, though. Even if details keep coming up – get these lingering affairs resolved. You’re setting sail on a new adventure.

Virgo– (August 22 – September 21) Don’t hold back in asking for help, Virgo; getting assistance from others is you ace in the hole this month. Think of it as drawing on a karmic savings account that you forgot you had. With the Solar eclipse of August 21stilluminating your 12thhouse, this month has a timeless quality. Navigate on a ‘need to know’ basis and expect the unexpected. Someone may let you down, but you are also lifted up in a way you’d never anticipate.

Libra– (September 22 – October 21) August is your month for a fresh start, Libra. Focus on personal creativity and take a risk on love. Your heart wants to be open, and I see you smiling freely. Any discomfort from the past is moving rapidly behind you, and your future is rapidly transforming in the way you envision it. It’s time to re-evaluate your situation, and to recognize that those chains of bondage are now broken. Fly free!

Scorpio – (October 22 – November 20) You have arrived at a critical juncture in your journey, Scorpio. It’s time to connect with some new people and some of whom will become a solid part of your future. Get out to meet and greet every chance you get – don’t count on them showing up at your door. This is your time for personal and professional networking, so take it on as an assignment. Your future is calling; please answer!

Sagittarius– (November 21– December 19) The fire signs have ‘it’ in this season, and that includes you. Uranus is standing by to give you one exquisite reason to surrender to faith, hope, and trust in the future. Uranus wants to work symbiotically with what you DO have, right here and now. Add the magic of your passion, and, then, alchemy is ignited. Dive in deep, Sagittarius. You are being called to turn lead into gold – it IS possible, and you can do it.

Capricorn– (December 20 – January 18) The definitions of August align closely with your sign: inspiring reverence or admiration; of supreme dignity or grandeur; majestic. And, the August winds whisper of premonitions, another insight that aligns with your unique perspective. Listen to your intuition now, Capricorn. There is something that you need to understand. Be open to a needed course correction, and sail for the sunny shores.

Aquarius – (January 19 – February 17) You have a unique talent for logic, and the stars now invite you to deepen your well of emotion. The secret is to hear the whisper of positive feelings over the booming echo of past hurts. Positive self-esteem is the arena for your transformation; put a smile on your face, even if you have to fake it till you make it. Allow that empty space to just ‘be’ for a bit rather than move to fill it right away.

Pisces – (February 18 – March 19) You are divinely guided by Jupiter these days. Yes, Neptune is your ruling planet, but Jupiter opens the gates of Splendor. However, don’t dwell on when it’s time to make a move. If you do, Mercury retrograde from Aug 12 – Sept 4 may leave you feeling like you have to stay even when you want to leave. If you have to wait, know that it’s because there is something better down the road.
