Your August 2021 Horoscope with Maya White

August 2021

Aries – (March 20 – April 18) In terms of astrological elements, the passion of August feeds your fellow fire sign essence. And, there is much to invigorate you now, particularly around the Leo New moon of August 8th. However, there are some subtle currents that are tugging at your vitality now. Chiron in Aries is ever present in your energy field. Also known as the ‘wounded healer’, Chiron urges you to fully address any health issues that are holding you back. Your sign likes to go fast, but the stars are suggesting that it’s time to slow down and enjoy the ride – you’ll get there soon enough.

Taurus – (April 19 – May 19) So, Taurus, how are you liking Uranus in your sign? Each and every one of you will experience a personal revolution in the days to come. Uranus has a bad rap as being ‘chaotic’, or ‘dramatic’, but these words do not really address the depth of what is happening. Personal revolution need not leave you feeling uncentered; rather, just the opposite. Rise to the challenge of Uranus and accept your new level of power with calmness and delight. A new chapter begins…

Gemini – (May 20 – June 19) If you feel like you’re fighting your way out of a brown paper bag, just hang in there. This is a month when you have to buckle down and just keep going. Take care that you don’t get off track because there are opportunities for distraction almost each and every day. If you want to get anything accomplished, set up a schedule, one that also allows for some fun time, and stick to it. Good news arrives around August 26th when Mercury and Pluto team up and send some love your way.

Cancer(June 20 – July 21) August delivers both peace and clarity to you, Cancer. The peace comes through having no planets in your sign. No planets mean less distractions. And, the clarity comes through having direct access to the ‘Big Picture’; Neptune ensures that you understand things quickly and easily. Plus, Mars is energizing your financial picture now. It’s not often that Cancer gets the ‘all clear’ call. Take it easy and be at peace with your world. The stress of your past is gone, and the future looks bright.

Leo – (July 22 – August 21) Happy rebirth, Leo. The New Moon of August 8th is heart and soul right in the middle of your sign, and it foretells a great year ahead. You have an abundance of energy – enough to take on the world. Plus, here is a secret; both Venus and Mars are in your money sector which is a strong clue that your future holds an abundance of both love and money. Careful planning is necessary however, to really go the distance. Get clear on your goals, and come up with a plan to achieve them.

Virgo – (August 22 – September 21) For your sign, August is a time for rest and repose. It’s also your time to re-group and prepare for a busy season ahead. With Mars in your sign, and Venus in Virgo until August 16th, let this be a time of smooth sailing. Mercury, your planetary ruler is busy this month, also. Pay attention on August 20th when Mercury trine Uranus delivers a paradigm shift opportunity. Go with the flow, but be ready to seize the day at a moment’s’ notice.

Libra – (September 22 – October 21) This month holds many mysteries and promises much to look forward to. Vesta, the asteroid goddess lingers in your sign until September 19th. This sacred goddess needs some ‘down time’ – time to figure things out. Vesta, the brightest asteroid in our solar system, keeps the home fires burning. So, you may not feel as social as usual, yet totally enamored with your private life. By the way, it is not true that Vesta denies lovers; part of her mission is initiation into Sacred Sexuality. Let your spiritual Light burn bright. August promises a renewed optimism for life, and a deepening of your understanding. Give thanks each and every day for the blessings.

Scorpio – (October 22 – November 20) You’ve been doing double duty for a long time, Scorpio. You’ve been doing heavy lifting in the dense, material world, while holding a high frequency energetic template for transformation in the spiritual realm. This work can be sometimes tiring, especially with the Sun in Leo. The August Sun may be calling you to the beach, or the forest. But this is not the time to slack off. Great gains are possible. Keep going.

Sagittarius – (November 21– December 19) It’s time to give serious thought to what you really, really want. The asteroid Juno, in your sign from January until November 15th this year, is urging you to define and refine your loyalties. Juno is about marriage, but she’s also about loyalty to self. And, Juno teaches you that your fertility and creativity are primed when you listen to your own guidance. In short – it’s time for you, Sag, to heed your inner voice. Get clear on with whom and where your loyalties lie; and then, get busy. The future looks bright!

Capricorn – (December 20 – January 18) Some signs have ‘good’ and not so good months, and it’s possible that August is one of those so-so times. This is because in the flow of signs, Leo sits in a position that requires you to make adjustments. If you’re feeling this way now, (like the world doesn’t understand you) I have good news. Pluto, that planet you know so well by now, sits in a Grand Duke position with Venus and Uranus. The Earth signs have a hand up now, Capricorn. Get over any hesitation, work every day to deepen your positive mind, and set sail into your divine future.

Aquarius – (January 19 – February 18) The Leo new moon of August 8th delivers superb clarity for you, Aquarius. Partnerships are highlighted and you have a complete understanding – no questions needed. Saturn in your sign ensures that you will see things exactly the way they are. This can be a good thing, Aquarius. It is known that Saturn demands hard work. And it is also true that the gains made with Saturn can never be taken away. Don’t second guess your insights now. The Aquarius Full moon of August 22nd delivers exactly what you need.

Pisces – (February 19 – March 19) You’ll have to read between the lines a lot this month, Pisces. Thing is – how do people think they can tease a mind reader, anyway? Your ruling planet, Neptune, is at odds with Mercury this month, and people are just not being straightforward. Better to listen to your own intuition rather than what you’re being told. The good news is that the Universe has a gift coming your way. I see a long-held dream coming true this month. Congratulations!
