Go to Top A New Course
Stable Bulls start the month with the Sun in proud Leo, your 4th house of home and family. August will be a significant time, revolving around domestic affairs, family relationships and taking charge of refurbishments. It starts off on the 7th with a Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse in your 10th house, bringing about major changes to your long-range plans and future career endeavours. This will then be followed by a New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 21st in your 4th house, impacting changes to your lifestyle and conditions on the home front.

To add to this, Mercury begins a retrograde phase on the 13th in your 5th house of romance, so get set not to misconstrue love messages! Prepare for delays in getting projects underway, and double-check important dates in your calendar. Mighty Mars remains in your 4th and will be persistent in fixing up real estate matters, and causing possible friction with family members. However, keep your feet firmly on the ground, as security, traditional values and securing your comfort zone will be paramount. Things of sentimental value, memorabilia and keepsakes could do with some sorting out, but don't throw things out that you may regret at a later time. The 10th to the 12th sees one of happier times with work and on the home front, but watch your diet -- and your waistline! From the 13th to the 15th, joint resources and finances will be in the frame. Analyse your outgoings and keep to a working budget. From the 16th to the 18th, someone from the past could reappear, an old childhood friend or a relative. A change of residence could take place.

The Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse on the 7th occurs in inventive Aquarius, influencing your 10th house of career and ambitions. 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 partial Lunar Eclipse is going to have a bearing on your success, recognition, career path and long-term plans. It has the potential to set you on a different course, finalising your current career and sending you off to do something else. Things could happen out of the blue, or opportunities could present themselves for you to take up a position of leadership and importance. You may receive a promotion, a raise, or be placed in the limelight. You'll also need to consider how events could impact on your lifestyle, family relationships and matters on the home front. Be sure to balance your professional life with that of the family.

The 21st sees a New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in regal Leo, your 4th house of home and family. Leading up to this Solar Eclipse, the potential is there for upsets and frustrations with work, health, travel and communications. Mercury will be retrograde, upsetting plans with delays on the domestic scene. Meanwhile action-orientated Mars is likely to create upsets, but will at least give you the motivation to spruce up the appearance of your home, garden, and do a well-needed cleanup.

On the 22nd, the Sun moves out of Leo and into charming Virgo, your 5th house of romance, creativity and speculation. The next four weeks will highlight your love of entertainment, music, romance and children. Set time aside for pleasurable events, catching up with friends and recreational activities that may be well overdue. Delightful Venus enters the scene on the 26th, turning your attention to beautifying the home with renovation ideas. This will be a favourable time to smooth over any misunderstandings with family members. You'll gain harmony and negotiate terms in family agreements.
Go to Top Mercury Retrograde
Mercury remains in methodical Virgo, your 5th house of romance, creativity and speculation. You'll be looking for mind-stimulating activities, games and an outward expression of your artistic side. On the 13th, the Cosmic Prankster turns retrograde. The kettle will be boiling during August and September with much to say and do. Firstly, the Cosmic Joker will make tedious trouble for you with indiscreet love messages. You may have a lot of explaining to do if your mobile phone gets into the wrong hands! Make sure you send messages to the right person -- and not too cryptic to avoid misunderstandings. If you are a creative writer, this is not the time to publish a romance novel, because you are likely to be more critical than ever with your projects. Avenues of entertainment may not be quite so amusing. For instance computer games and machines could be faulty. Social plans, bookings, invitations and celebrations may have to be postponed.

On the 31st, Mercury retrogrades back to Leo, your 4th house of home and family. You may have to backtrack to July on family agreements, real estate contracts and rental properties. Removalists could create a problem, especially if you have made plans to relocate. Redecorating ideas could fall by the wayside as other interruptions take hold. On September 5th, Mercury turns direct in Leo before re-entering Virgo on the September 10th, with Mercury out of the shadow phase on September 20th.
Go to Top Use Your Charm
Loving Venus, your planetary ruler, remains in chatty Cancer, your 3rd house of communication. It's a good time to use your charm, be light-hearted and express your creative writing talents. Short scenic trips may be on the agenda, and places where you can chat with friends over a caffe latte. Catch up with brothers and sisters or a relative you have been out of contact with. You'll prefer not to argue points of difference, but will rather compromise. You'll take interest in the arts, exploring beauty themes, buying a mobile phone or turning your thoughts to travel. The 15th to the 26th could have its fair share of problems with transportation, justice issues, or work and health concerns. Don't overextend your boundaries or areas of indulgence. On the 26th, the Goddess swirls into Leo, your 4th house. It will be a fabulous time to add harmony to family relationships and make peace offerings. You'll enjoy entertaining at home, inviting relatives and being with close friends. What redecorating ideas have you in mind?
Go to Top Action on the Home Front
Fearless Mars remains in Leo, your 4th house, for the rest of the month. It's not the most beneficial place for the War God in your area of domestic bliss, so preserve your vigorous urge to get things done. A dominating parent could well create friction and there's a chance of arguments with other family members. Disperse some of your energy into inventive and artistic projects around the home. Real estate issues, property and legal contracts could come under review, including home and contents insurance policies. Safety around the home will be paramount. From the 18th to the 23rd, your wellbeing, pleasant relationships with relatives, and congeniality with others will be on the agenda. From the 24th to the 29th, you'll strive towards a common goal, or consider an important union with someone that enters your life. Changes to your home structure are possible, as are real estate dealings, property rentals and working on projects behind the scenes.
