Capricorn August 2014

The summer provides you with a healthy reality check, enabling you to integrate some of the most positive changes that have already begun to unfold in your life. You can take a fresh look at whatever opportunities you’re considering, which are less overwhelming now as retrograde Jupiter in your 2nd House of Personal Resources backs away from the hopeful Chiron-Neptune conjunction throughout the month. Expansive Jupiter forms an irritable quincunx with repressive Saturn on August 19. This is a long-lasting aspect that can have you doubting yourself even when everything appears to be going well.

The progressive Aquarius Full Moon Eclipse on August 5 falls in your 2nd House and can tilt your fortune one way or another, bringing a financial surprise or an unexpected hitch to a current plan. But this Full Moon is opposite the generous Leo Sun in your 8th House of Shared Resources, signaling that it would be smart to work closely in business with a partner who has a stake in your current activities.

Sagittarius August 2014

No matter how much fun others are having, your attention is drawn to work this month. Mental Mercury points in a professional direction by entering task-oriented Virgo in your 10th House of Career on August 2. Sharpening your skills and managing details with greater care will enhance your job status. The Sun’s ingress into methodical Virgo on August 22 puts you in the spotlight, where you can shine by demonstrating competence, confidence, leadership, and self-discipline. If your vocation is unfulfilling, though, your discontent is likely to become more obvious. It’s clear that you need intellectual stimulation when a Lunar Eclipse in airy Aquarius illuminates your 3rd House of Information on August 5. This Full Moon is supported by an assertive trine from Mars that strengthens your communication skills and helps you transform complex ideas into innovative actions.

Scorpio August 2014

Flexibility isn’t your forte, Scorpio, and it’s likely to be tested this month by the complicated comings and goings of optimists, pessimists, rule makers, and rule breakers. Your co-ruling planet Mars flits through flighty Gemini in your 8th House of Intimacy and Transformation until August 25, forming aspects with five planets along the way. Learning how to alter your responses to meet each situation will strengthen relationships and earn you support; otherwise your unyielding reactions can drive people away.

The Full Moon in unorthodox Aquarius on August 5 is a Lunar Eclipse in your 4th House of Family that may rattle cages on the home front. You might feel a strong drive for freedom and a desire to flee your obligations. Whether this itch for change is yours or belongs to someone close to you, clever Mars in Gemini forms a creative trine to the Full Moon, showing you ways in which contrasting needs can be met without undermining your emotional security.

Libra August 2014

Your struggle to gain control of certain aspects of your life may be a recurring theme this month, beginning on August 1 as Venus, the Goddess of Love, engages in a standoff with potent Pluto. The month ends with Mars, the God of War, entangled in the same tug-of-war on August 26. Between this challenging pair of dramatic oppositions, you may attempt to carve out a balance between opportunities to enjoy yourself and your responsibilities to finish what you’ve already started.

The Full Moon Eclipse in nonconformist Aquarius on August 5 falls in your creative 5th House, suggesting a breakthrough in how you express yourself. If you’re involved with any type of artistic endeavor, this is the time for a radical approach—you may discover exciting ways to advance your technique. The 5th House is also associated with children, so you could have a surprising interaction with a clever child who teaches you something you might not expect from a youngster.

Virgo August 2014

Your thinking grows sharper as intellectual Mercury enters discerning Virgo on August 2. The narrowing lens of perception helps you cut through complex issues to get at key points, increasing your efficiency and ability to influence others. Still, it’s helpful to step back and widen your perspective occasionally to make sure that your precisely defined picture fits into the larger scheme of things. The Full Moon on August 5 is a Lunar Eclipse in unconventional Aquarius that falls in your 6th House of Health, Work, and Daily Routines, reminding you that new ideas and systems aren’t always better than old ones. Fortunately, active Mars in flexible Gemini trines the Moon to show you how to make adjustments without making waves.

Finding balance between tomorrow’s potential and today’s reality can seem challenging with a clumsy quincunx between positive Jupiter and pragmatic Saturn on August 19. This second in a series of three aspects—which began on March 22 and finishes on February 5, 2015—requires you to play the role of a skeptic to overly enthusiastic believers as well as act as a source of inspiration for those stuck in doubt and fear.
