Go to Top Promote Yourself
Tenacious Scorpio starts the month with the Sun in egocentric Leo, your 10th house of career and ambitions. This is an important time of the year to concentrate on your career, long-term plans and desire for success. Promote yourself to your employer, brush up your resume and build on a good public image. You'll be in the public eye in some way, whether socially or through your profession. This is a good time to receive recognition or a reward, to influence important people and use your organisation skills. Your strong determination to get what you want will be your driving force in advancing forward. From the 1st to the 2nd with the New Moon closing in, you will consider ways of working towards your goals, at the same time allowing for financial security in meeting obligations. Romance may spring up out of the blue, and an unexpected invitation, or social gathering could put you in the limelight. From the 16th to the 18th, there'll be new and interesting changes in your line of work, and career.

The 2nd sees the New Moon in Leo, your 10th house. During the next two weeks, you'll be given a new direction with the possibility of increasing your earning capacity, but with a few adjustments taking place. Review your long-term ambitions, and ability to show your creative and organisational skills. You may be hoping to make a name for yourself, or want to launch an important new project that you hope will also boost your reputation. Focus on financial and business matters, as Mars strides into Sagittarius, your 2nd house. You may be inspired to give more attention to your bank and financial papers. Why not go through bills and accounts, making payments or taking some sort of action regarding debts, assets, and income? It's also a great opportunity to apply for a new job or to ask for promotion. What have you got to lose?

The Full Moon on the 18th comes in reforming Aquarius your 4th house of home and family. 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 Green Corn Moon, Blueberry Moon and the Full Red Moon because as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze.

This Full Moon illuminates family relationships, influencing your tide of emotions, security and home comfort needs. You might react differently to family dramas from how you would normally react. Memories of the past, traditional values and childhood memories may come flooding back together with your raised emotions. Now is the time to consider which way to go on your career path and the public image you want to display. Balancing these with your home and family life won't be easy. Try to find some middle ground, rather than swinging from one extreme to the other and then back again. It will also make you aware of the needs of certain family members and whether or not you're fulfilling them.

On the 22nd, the Sun moves out of Leo and into Virgo, your 11th house of friends, hopes and wishes. During the next four weeks, you will place more focus on networking, being with friends, associates, groups and organisations that you belong to. You will also build on your future aspirations and dreams. Accept a few social invitations, you never know who you will meet.
Go to Top Mercury Retrograde
Mercury remains in Virgo, your 11th house for a longer than usual stay, entering a retrograde phase at the end of the month. You will be open to new ideas and plans, other people's values and the impact they place on you. It's a good time to interact and share stories. Why not catch up with old friends and social gatherings? You will have more to say than usual, but are also keen to be more innovative. What are your true ideals and how do they fit into your future objectives? From the 5th to the 8th, discussions on money matters may prove disappointing. You may be confused over a love relationship or friendship. Don't make any important decisions as your thinking will be cloudy, leading to misunderstandings.

From the 10th to the 12th you'll zoom in on intensive conversations, even producing a few thought-provoking topics. In some way your attitude and mindset may change, allowing you to view alternative ways of communicating with other people. From the 20th to the 31st, Mercury joins up with Jupiter before departing your 11th house and entering attractive Libra, your 12th house, on September 9th. Saturn and Neptune are generating conditions that cause instability in your finances, and a killjoy for love relationships and fun activities. In saying that, Jupiter will give you a window of opportunity to benefit from your friendships, love relationships and your efforts to materialise your dreams. It will be important to work in with others as a team member or part of a group. As Mercury goes retrograde, you will need to fine-tune areas of agreement that have not been finalised.

On the 30th, the Cosmic Scribe turns retrograde in your 11th house. Share your ideas and opinions with friends and work towards future goals and dreams. Late developments in August and early September show promise, but don't overestimate your ability, and listen to what others say and their point of view. Misunderstandings and arguments could blow matters out of proportion, particularly if stubbornness gets in the way of logical outcomes. Romantic commitments, dates for events, and celebrations may be postponed. Mercury turns direct on September 22nd, and speeds up decision-making, with plans back to schedule after October 7th.
Go to Top Popular Scorpio
The Goddess Venus, remains in your 10th house at the start. This is a time for popularity, being in the public eye and being recognised for your creative work. On the 5th the Goddess breezes into Virgo, your 11th house. Your popularity is bound to increase, along with love relationships and possible love attractions for the eligible. This is a good time to promote harmony and cooperation amongst friends, colleagues and acquaintances. Let your hair down and enjoy yourself socially. Make peace with a few difficult people.

From the 12th to the 14th, you'll need to pick your mood instead of wallowing in sorrow over a love disappointment. There's a chance that overspending may hit your hip pocket. From the 14th to 16th you'll have to ask yourself if you are overstepping the mark by being too obsessed over someone or dreaming about them too much. A love affair that begins now may appear great on the surface, but once you start digging for the truth, it may prove deceptive in some way. Also avoid losses through unnecessary speculations. From the 17th to the 19th you won't fall short at being emotionally intensive, especially when it comes to expressing your love and sexuality in relationships. From the 27th to the 30th, Jupiter joins up with Mercury and Venus before his final departure from your 11th house. You'll be in an optimistic frame of mind ready to celebrate either with a friendship, romantic relationships, or with a group of friends. Express words of love to those you care about and enjoy the fun.

On the 30th Venus dances into charming Libra, your 12th house of secrets, sorrows and hidden motivations. Scorps are good at keeping secrets, and you may have to do that now. You'll shy away from the limelight and become interested in working behind the scenes. Some may have a secret love affair while others will be quite happy to help others in a compassionate way.
Go to Top Financial Negotiations
Action-packed Mars, your planetary-ruler, is departing Scorpio after a lengthy retrograde phase. On the 2nd, Mars re-enters Sagittarius your 2nd house of personal earning, values and possessions for another hit. Once again you will go over old ground, finding resolutions to your financial affairs, or re-establishing your values and possessions. Negotiations with financial institutions may be slow while you look for alternatives to fill your shortfall with money and earning capacity. Areas that may call for your attention will be settling small debts, credit cards and renegotiating mortgage repayments. You may find yourself in disputes over joint holdings and possessions, backtracking paperwork and documents. Restraint on expenditure will be a must, while you catch up and meet your bill payments and long-term financial obligations. You'll be able to resume your tenacious drive after August 22nd, but remain thrifty with your money.

From the 21st to the 28th, you may be at war or reach a deadlock as Warrior Mars and stern Saturn battle it out for supremacy. Dreamy Neptune will be squaring these two adversaries just to confuse and frustrate matters. Disagreements are likely over finances, so don't take on any risky speculations, gamble or make risky investments as losses are highly possible. You may not have the energy to pursue business discussions or financial agreements. On the 13th, Saturn returns to direct motion, slowly proceeding on his transit through your 2nd house, adding to financial restrictions and taking responsible action.

Note: on September 1st, there'll be a New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Virgo, your 11th house. This could see a different emergence in your circle of friendships and relationships. It will also trigger events surrounding your earning capacity.
