Horoscopes for August 2013 by Jeanne Douglas

Aries (20 March – 19 April):

New events may take you by surprise and even startle you! Yes, expect to be surprised by others this month, as friends and acquaintances start to reveal ‘their’ intentions and full agenda. And, although this may seem a little crazy and even something to be feared, you will not be surprised and are even a little prepared!

Taurus (20 April – 20 May):

Changes at home may leave you feeling a little ungrounded, and even unsettled! You will feel as though you have no grounds for negotiation. This will be disturbing to most Taureans, who do like to know just where they stand, at all times! However, the message is to; put your house in order, before a great new opportunity opens up.

Gemini (21 May – 20 June):

A new project or ‘beginning’ at work may ‘come out of the blue’, not that this is undesirable or difficult for you to handle! Indeed, at some level, this is just what you need and may even be slightly overdue. The challenge is to allow yourself to let go of old ways of looking at things and moving on. Just go with the flow, that’s all.

Cancer (21 June – 21 July):

Yes, you may indeed have to consider new ways of making money and come up with something rather quickly! Although this may sound distressing, you may need a little challenge; otherwise you’ll sink into rather a nice social phase and forget to take advantage of some fantastically good luck available at the moment. Time to push!

Leo (22 July – 22 August):

Life finally gives you a break and you get the ‘breather’ that you really need! It’s been a long time coming and ‘much deserved’. However, some emotional work is required and this may be exhausting. For starters, some romantic decision is forced on you, whilst spending money on a loved one is necessary,  to secure their trust.

Virgo (23 August – 22 September):

You’re on an emotional roller-coaster this month and you’ll be ‘up one minute’ and ‘down the next’. This could be interesting, especially where love is concerned, and your feelings will lead the way. Some work project finally comes to an end and you can breathe a sigh of relief. A very clever and successful friend seeks you out.

Libra (23 September – 22 October):

It’s an interesting time socially, with friends coming and going so quickly! Expect one or two familiar faces to have to move on, whilst new faces make a wonderful entrance. This is an exciting time to make progress as others ‘come to the rescue’ and help you get new plans off the ground. Despite doubt and worry, all will come clear.

Scorpio (23 October – 21 November):

Home concerns diminish as a new job is on offer! A certain ‘new freedom’ settles upon you, even though you still have your work cut out and have commitments and responsibilities weighing heavily upon you. You know that this is well worth it and there could well be much worthwhile ‘goodies’ down the line. But for now, endure!

Sagittarius (22 November – 20 December):

You have finally come to the end of a phase and will start to feel some substantial relief! You can now start to put recent events well behind you and these could be difficult, challenging and even contentious. You did your best but there is little more that could be done. For, one door has certainly closed behind you. Get some rest!

Capricorn (21 December – 19 January):

You may be quite concerned where your finances are concerned, especially being as certain ‘courses of action’ may be forced upon you! No-one is comfortable with that but if you can keep the channels of communication open then you will also keep your options available. Try and keep excited ‘others’ in order; this is your business.

Aquarius (20 January – 17 February):

A new friendship is ‘on offer’ and you have to admit that you’re ready for a change and a bit of a shake-up! You may quake and shake at the thought of abandoning certain thoughts and ideas but even you can see that doing so is in your own interests. The good news is that you are surrounded by loved ones who know how to help you.

Pisces (18 February – 19 March):

A partner is tetchy as you seem determined to ‘do your own thing’ and push ahead with new work plans. They may need some more time, to get used to the idea whilst you’ve been aware, of quite some time, of the need to shake off some shackles and stand your own ground a little more. An important friend can really help with all this!
