🍿August Horoscope 2019
►Now that the Eclipses have passed and Mercury Retrograde is over, you may find that you have a bit of an emotional hangover, and that might mean that you’re feeling tired, shell-shocked, or just plain ready to move on. Allow for your process to unfold. You don’t need to be in such a rush to get to the other side of this that you miss out on where you’re at. Make plans this month, and if need be, clear up any mixed messages or conflicts that got stirred up in July.
March 21-April 19
You may not have enough information yet, but that doesn’t mean that things are bad. It’s time to improve your relationship to uncertainty this month. Expect events to kick up some new feelings about some old situations; it might be awkward. There are some unresolved issues holding you back. Strive to be interested in them, instead of trying to push past them. Your emotions are not obstacles, and your past can’t be ignored. Work with what you’ve got, my love.
April 20-May 20
Instead of looking for a way to feel, do, or be better, seek kindness and bravery — especially in the face of your most critical impulses. August is your time to cultivate a bigger heart. Channeling patience and compassion into your problems sounds great, but it’s vulnerable. Prioritize your relationship with yourself, Taurus, and allow healthy boundaries and sustainable choices to emerge from your deepened self-knowledge this month.
May 21-June 21
August is the time to challenge some of your most deep assumptions and ingrained habits. As you grow, you will inevitably outgrow certain truths and practices. It’s time to do more than just talk about what comes next — you need to embody the shifts that will get you there. Take well-considered risks and even invite strategic losses into your life. Just don’t allow the uncertainty and instability of change to stop you from being the person you want to be, Twin Star.
June 22-July 22
There is great vulnerability in patience, but there’s power in it too. It’s ok to trust that you’ve worked hard to create an opening in your life and that good things will flow into it. Don’t let impatience inspire you to give up on your dreams or to back away from your passions. It’s time to have a little faith, Moonchild. You’ve put the wheels in motion, and now you’ve got to believe that, given time, you’ll get to exactly where you’re supposed to go.
July 23-Aug. 22
There is so much that demands your attention, but you have limited time and energy. When your actions don’t reflect your priorities, it doesn’t matter how successful you are — you're not going to feel great about yourself. Strive to reorganize your thinking so that your actions are more impactful this month. If you can get your ambitions, self-care, and your obligations in some kind of proportion to each other, you’ll be well on your way, Leo.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
It’s time to cultivate greater discretion with your thoughts. What you allow yourself to mentally indulge in shapes your inner world, which is of course the foundation from which all of your actions spring. When you align your intentions with your integrity and then pair that with determination, you’re unstoppable. There’s so much in front of you, but there are also things you need to leave behind in order to forge ahead. Stop picking at scabs, and allow your wounds to heal, Virgo.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
You're used to responding to stress (the good kind and the hard kind) in certain ways that you’ve outgrown, Libra. This month, it's time for doing the difficult work of implementing changes and making new choices in the presence of old and unpleasant emotions. Confront fear with love and any mistakes you make with grace. You’re ready to change your life from the inside out, but it isn’t always going to be pretty.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Your resentments hurt you more than they impact anyone else. When you obsess on painful situations and dynamics or people who you’re not at peace with, you’re basically calling to your heartache, inviting it in deeper. You need to put some things down and walk away from others altogether, but you can’t do that when you keep returning to the scene of the crime. The best revenge is success, but if you’re truly successful, you don’t need revenge at all.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
It’s time to step into stillness, Sagittarius. If your life is busy and you’re unable to take a break, at least focus on getting really present for the in-between moments this month. The truth about the whole be here now thing is that now is often uncomfortable, confusing, or just plain upsetting. You don’t need to feel good all the time or to have all the answers; you just need to let life reveal itself to you as slowly as it needs to.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Even though the eclipses are passed, you’re still kind of in it, Capricorn. It’s essential that you pay attention to your relationships, especially if other life stressors have made you self-involved or checked-out with your loved ones lately. Don’t expect others to know that you love them or that you're thinking about them; reach out and tell them. And when they speak, make sure you’re really listening to what they have to say. Love is the balm for much of what ails you, my love.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
If doing the right thing was easy, everyone would do it! The problems that you’re having are not exactly new; they’re just finally coming to the surface. It’s time to act just for the joy of the action, Aquarius. That might mean prioritizing what you believe in or what you’re happiest doing — it's your choice to make. What’s most important is that you are confident about your own motives. Accept your truth and keep on trying, my love.
Feb. 19-March 20
Life is all about the little things. Remember to celebrate your wins as passionately as you mourn your losses, to eat the cake and enjoy every bite, and also, to finally do that sugar cleanse. In other words, to grow and contract, and change, and hurt, and heal, and repeat. You are not just the sum of your achievements; you are an organism that needs light and air and water to thrive. Don’t forget who you are, Pisces.
