💯August Horoscope 2018
If you liked July’s intensity, you’re gonna love August!
Eclipse Season isn’t over, and on the 11th, we have a powerful Solar Eclipse in Leo at 1:58amPST. This will be an easy time to jump to conclusions, but it's not wise to do so. The big theme at play here involves who and what you value and what you’re willing to do about it. Both Mercury, planet of communication, and Mars, planet of fornicating and fighting, are both Retrograde until the 18th and 27th, respectively. As with all Retrogrades, use this time to reflect, review, and reassess what you think and how you’re behaving. In order to thoughtfully move your life forward, you may need to make some meaningful revisions. Be kind to yourself and others in the process, my loves.
March 21-April 19
This month is likely to kick up some major fears, but not for nothing! You’re ready to confront them and to grow beyond self-imposed limitations. When you take your worries at face value, you can too easily end up operating off of misunderstandings or projections. Don’t be in such a rush to “fix” things that you don’t first investigate what’s actually happening. If you can be interested in your reactions, you will both learn about yourself and see your situation more clearly. Be brave, Aries.
April 20-May 20
The truth is true whether you admit it or not, Taurus. You may have to deal with the downside of your own choices and actions throughout Eclipse Season. While you might feel quite innocent in your relationships, if you’ve not been honest about the tough stuff, you’re not really giving others a chance to show up when you need them or the opportunity to take care of themselves around your boundaries. Strive to be honest, even when it may cost you something you don’t wanna pay this month.
May 21-June 21
Now is the time for you to get your life together, Twin Star. Confront your inhibitions and your ambiguities so that you can finally move on from the stuck place you’ve been. Finding the truth or a sense of balance doesn’t mean you’ll discover a perfect answer or feel “good vibes only.” It means that you can trust yourself, even as your moods and conditions ebb and flow. Don’t wait for anyone to do it for you; honor your goals and your vision with flexibility this month.
June 22-July 22
There’s no way of knowing how things will turn out, and honestly, even if you could know, it wouldn’t save you from having to follow through with the process. This month is all about doing the work. Confront your fears, stand up and advocate for yourself and for what you believe in, and stay emotionally present for it all. It’s time to do what needs to be done, even if you’re not sure what will happen next, Moonchild.
July 23-Aug. 22
As if you haven’t been going through enough this Eclipse Season, we have a powerful Solar Eclipse in your sign on the 11th. It’s meant to spark a fire within you that inspires you to follow through with some much needed changes. Strive to actively create what you want in your life or in the world around you, but remember that feels are not the same as action. Get up and make things happen, lovely Leo.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Focus on your relationships this month, Virgo. The Moon will be full in your relationship house on the 26th, and your ruling planet is Retrograde until the 18th. Between these two events, you’re being nudged (read: pushed) to confront the truth of what exists between you and others. Approach your relationships with honesty and patience as you determine if you need to try harder (and in what ways) or if you simply need to let go. You don’t need to make things perfect, but it is time to really try, my love.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Action is the antidote to what’s been making you feel down, Libra. It’s time to push ahead and break out free. Seek things you can do every day, no matter how small, that will build up your confidence or chip away at the mountain of tasks that you’ve been too intimidated to tackle. If you’ve been overwhelmed or underwater, the Eclipse on the 11th should give you the boost you need to get up and get things moving in the right direction, sweet one.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
What you want to do with your life is a matter of huge importance. This month, expect to be confronted by some anxieties that have been kicking around inside of you. The best thing you can do is explore them instead of running from them. Fear can kick you to the ground or lift you to your feet. The key is to choose what gives you life, instead of evade what makes you scared, Scorpio.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Finding yourself is not a one-time thing; the process of becoming requires flexibility, adjustment, and repeat. Growth inevitably leads to change, while change doesn’t necessarily beget growth. Don’t allow the upsets to lead you to retreat, ‘Tarius. It’s important that you don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater this month. Don’t approach changes or upsets in a defensive or shut down way. It’s time to honor your truth by prioritizing it over the status quo, my love.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
This is your life, and you need to do what’s right by your own standards. You don’t need to pattern yourself after others. Instead of worrying so much about what anyone else is or isn’t doing, look within to figure out what’s right for you. Act in ways that reflect your priorities, and know that what other people think is valuable information but not gospel. It’s time to live for yourself, on your own terms, Cappy mon Capitan.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
The Solar Eclipse in your relationship house on the 11th is going to be intense for you, Aquarius. It’s important that you accept that your resentments hurt no one but you. This month is all about the choices you make and the impact that they have on both your inner and outer world. Embrace your relationships as a reflection of past choices. You may need to change your mind or change your actions, but you for sure don’t need to assign blame, my love.
Feb. 19-March 20
In order to create real change in your life, you don’t singularly need to pursue actions; you need a shift in perspective, Pisces. This isn’t the time for idealism; its time for making changes that stick. The Full Moon in your sign on the 26th will offer you opportunities for transformation, or it will force them on you. While you don’t get to choose what life will bring, you can choose how you’re willing to respond. Embrace your own growth and potential this month.
