Your August 2019 Horoscope with Astrologer, Maya White

August 2019

Aries – (March 20 – April 18) This is your time for fun and play. Mars and Venus in Leo whisper through your days like a breath of fresh air. Mars and Venus together in any sign create a special glow, but it’s extra special to have them in a compatible fire sign. Enjoy this ‘free energy’ now, Aries. The only thing you need to look out for is too much of a good thing. Your fire burns hot and fast and this sometimes leads to burn out. Get lots of sleep, and have an absolutely fab month.

Taurus– (April 19 – May 19) There is going to be plenty of confusion with Mercury in Leo from August 11 – 29, so do your best to let go of thinking things are going to work out like you planned. It’s possible that after some adjustment and re-working, that you’ll actually get far more than you anticipated. Let go of rigid expectations, and be open to the good and amazing things that the Universe has to offer you.

Gemini– (May 20 – June 19) August is a great month for new ideas and fresh inspirations, provided you can relax. This month has several planets in Leo, and although you love the glow, it can also wind up the volume on nervous tension. This is an excellent time for travel, Gemini. It’s a perfect month to expand your world by taking short trips to meet new friends and re-connect with old ones.

Cancer(June 20 – July 21) There are several favorable planetary aspects that favor you this month. Jupiter, now in Sagittarius, has you searching for balance in an unsteady world, Cancer. But this month the stars have aligned to deliver good cheer. On August 7ththe Sun harmonizes Jupiter; this is a great day to focus on what you want to manifest for the remainder of this year. And, the very next day, Venus chimes in to smooth out uncertainty. Plus, Venus wins the day on the 26thas she trines Uranus. Keep the faith and enjoy the ride.

Leo– (July 22 – August 21)August is an OMG month for you, Leo. With the Sun, Venus, and Mars in your sign until the 20thyou are Golden. What a treasure for your birthday month! The only possible problem is the confusion that comes when you have to shift gears early in the month. A little bit of patience combined with good ole Leo practicality will get you through this adjustment period. Keep your cool over the long, hot summer days.

Virgo– (August 22 – September 21) You’ll feel brighter after August 11thwhen Mars enters your sign, Virgo. Not only Mars, but Venus, plus your ruling planet Mercury have been lurking in your solar 12th house, keeping you ‘in the dark’ so to speak. The 12thhouse is a place of repose and one begins to feel lost after a while. The secret to success is: surrender to what you cannot change, yet don’t give up.

Libra– (September 22 – October 21) Secrets are revealed in August, Libra. Someone has been holding their emotions inside, and now you finally get your answer. Events will transpire at lightening speed for the remainder of this year, so enjoy these summer (or winter) days and savor the sweetness that embraces your sign. The Aquarius full moon of August 15thhighlights your 5thhouse of fun and romance. You can see clearly now.

Scorpio – (October 22 – November 20) August can be a challenging month for your sign Scorpio, but this time around there is much to celebrate. You’ve grown, and are now ready to step up to a new experience of power. And, like the Leo, you’re strong enough to take the good with the bad. This does not make nagging doubts go away forever, but they don’t have the hold over you that they used to. August is your fresh start month. Celebrate.

Sagittarius– (November 21– December 19) August is perfect for you, Sag! Jupiter in your sign is sending some great vibes to the full moon mid-month, and even Chiron is made happy by this fire sign trine. The only possible problem comes from Neptune playing games with your mind. Keep the home fires burning, especially if your partner needs some extra love this month. Remember, yours is a sign of exquisite good fortune.

Capricorn– (December 20 – January 18) August is your month to incorporate the inspiration that came with last month’s full moon lunar eclipse in your sign. Now you get to embody, express, explain (to those who don’t understand) and enjoy. The moon in your sign on August 12thdelivers a reminder of exactly what it is that needs to happen now. Only this month, it’s about the financial gains that come with your new level of power and self-expression.

Aquarius – (January 19 – February 17) The full moon of August 15this in your sign, Aquarius, at 22 degrees, a Master Number. This number is so powerful that the truth of it has been hidden; it refers to being in harmony with the very force of creation. Twenty-two is about turning your dreams into reality, and astrology says that it’s done through partnerships. Step up to this invitation, Aquarius. Tune in to your higher self, and get into alignment with your next steps.

Pisces – (February 18 – March 19) You may need to take some down time this month, Pisces. Neptune and Jupiter are engaged in a long-term challenging square, which has been impacting you for three months now. This alone is a reason to want to step back. And this month, the Dark Moon Lilith is also shining her Light on your sign. Lilith shines a Light on your shadow, and she can make you feel like you’re not enough. Acceptance comes through the Divine power of Love.
