Go to Top Financial Developments
Caring Crabs start the month with the Sun in gallant Leo, your 2nd house of personal earnings, values and possessions. It is not going to be a month for the fainthearted, particularly where money is involved, bringing notable changes thanks to a Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on the 7th, activating your 8th house of sex, death and taxes. This will home in on joint resources, investments, debts and other people's money. It will be followed by a New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 21st, setting you on a new course with your capacity to earn extra cash, formulate a new budget and streamline your expenditure levels.

If that's not enough, Mercury does a reverse shuffle on the 13th in your 3rd house of communication, when you will need to rethink recent ideas and decision-making, especially if it involves mobility, a car, phone or internet. With energetic Mars campaigning in your 2nd house, avoid spending money impulsively, as there are extra bills and repairs on the agenda. With that said, think of ways to restructuring your budget and earning capacity, your value system regarding possessions and the feeling of security that it brings, whether personally or jointly with a partner.

From the 10th to the 12th, benefits could come your way through home, family, property and real estate matters. The 13th to the 15th is a good time to work in a disciplined and well-organised manner. Focus on important work issues, dealing with superiors, older people and health matters. From the 16th to the 18th could well be a turning point with your personal finances or meeting someone who will be able to point you in the right direction.

The Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse on the 7th occurs in inventive Aquarius, influencing your 8th house of sex, death and taxes. For the month of August, it is known as the Sturgeon Moon, a name given by native American tribes because they knew that the sturgeon (a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water) were most readily caught during this phase. It is also known as the Harvest Moon, Fruit Moon, Green Corn Moon, Grain Moon, Blueberry Moon, and the Full Red Moon because as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze.

This Full Moon and partial Lunar Eclipse directs attention to your financial achievements over the past six months. It will bring good fortune and a chance to work through challenges, especially with Mars in your 2nd house causing disruptions with finances. You'll need to review joint resources, property with others, real estate, investments, taxes and other people's money. Examine joint business partnership ventures, and finalise debts and settlements. Some may be faced with arguments over inheritances, partnership discrepancies, or benefits due. Your value system may change, as may what makes you feel secure and gives you comfort through possessions. Deeper sensual emotions will emerge within close relationships, together with your interest in psychic experiences, mysteries and life after death.

The 21st sees a New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in regal Leo, your 2nd house of personal earnings, values and possessions. This Total Solar Eclipse will set you in a new direction, working hard and diligently to increase your earning capacity. Mars, however, is also in your 2nd house giving more enthusiasm but at the same time boosting the urge to spend impulsively. You might be faced with unexpected bills or repairs to contend with, or unexpected changes in your career and professional life. Meanwhile, Mercury is in a retrograde phase slipping back into Leo for a short spell before going direct on September 5th. You may need to finalise negotiations. Fine-tune your spending capacity, which will mean changing your budget, and keeping spending down to a minimum on a needs-only basis in the short term.

On the 22nd, the Sun moves out of Leo and into earthy Virgo, your 3rd house of communication. Over the next four weeks you will be interested in what is happening around the neighbourhood, chatting on the phone and speaking your mind. You'll tend to be more analytical while evaluating recent concepts and knowledge that you receive. A good time to sort through paperwork that has been neglected of late. Remember to double-check all information.
Go to Top Mercury Retrograde
Mercury remains in Virgo, your 3rd house, generating activity with your daily tasks, short trips and general interaction with others. On August 13th, the Cosmic Prankster turns retrograde, throwing a spanner into the works. If there are going to be hiccups with transport and all sorts of telecommunications problems, they will happen now. If there is something you want to say, make sure it is clearly understood. There are bound to be delays, which will upset your daily tasks, children's education and mail disruption. Keep a diary handy and jot down information correctly, leaving no room for errors. Likewise, ensure messages you receive are fully detailed to eliminate any misunderstandings. On the 31st, Mercury re-enters Leo briefly, your 2nd house. On September 5th, Mercury turns direct in Leo before re-entering Virgo on the 10th. While in Leo, it will be important to finalise any money matters that have been outstanding. Mercury will be out of the shadow phase on September 20th, giving you a clearer picture on ideas and decisions.
Go to Top A Pleasing Mood
Loving Venus remains in Cancer at the start, supporting your 1st house of personality. With the Goddess afloat you should be self-confident and in a pleasing mood. You will feel better about yourself, even if you indulge a touch with pampering, sporting a new outfit or going to the hairdresser. Think about your personal needs, your relationships and social entertainment outlets. From the 15th to the 26th, relationships and partnerships will be emotionally intense. There may be a legal battle to contend with, or problems on the home front and with family members. Try to be realistic with your expectations from others, and avoid the negative side of jealousy and possessiveness.

On the 26th, the Goddess dances into Leo, your 2nd house. This is a welcome change, as money will be easier to come by, but it will be just as easy to spend it on extravagant items. Agreements and negotiations on finances should be more agreeable. Look at creative avenues of increasing your income whether in the fashion trade, beauty, or in arts and crafts.
Go to Top Increase Your Earnings
Fearless Mars remains in Leo, your 2nd house of personal finances, for the rest of the month. This will call you to be astute with your finances, rather than spending on non-essentials. Overdue bills and repairs in one form or another are in the frame. Make sure you can set some money aside to cover your outgoings and expenses. Work on your budget or work towards increasing your earnings. You may not want to let go of possessions that effectively are not yours but belong to a partner, or have to battle out joint resources, and belongings in some way. Avoid risky speculations, and listen to advice from qualified professionals.

From the 18th to the 23rd is a good time to work towards your goals and secure your earnings. A family member may help with an investment, real estate or a property matter. From the 24th to the 29th, there will be marked changes in your earning ability, past connections and conditions. The Solar Eclipse will also have a bearing on your financial undertakings.
