Horoscopes for August by Jeanne Douglas

Aries (20 March – 19 April):
Although your finances will dismay you a little this month from time to time, look out for wonderful opportunities to pursue fun hobbies as well as catching up with friends. You’ll be in a sociable mood and could find it difficult to apply yourself to work-related tasks! As your mind swings to a more leisurely mood, even your work becomes more enjoyable.
Taurus (20 April – 20 May)
With Uranus currently in your sign, you can’t put a foot wrong when it comes to cleverness! However, as the month starts off, you’re more interested in entertaining at home with friends and family – and catching up with all their news and events. As the month goes on, you get the opportunity to speak in public and take control of some work project.
Gemini (21 May – 20 June)
Getting ‘out and about’ will thrill and absorb you! You’ll be cheering everyone up with your upbeat and positive nature – so helping others will be your forte. Showing others how to enjoy themselves is also part of the course. Time spent at home with a loved one will energise and comfort you. Lending your work skills to a friend in need is generous indeed.
Cancer (21 June – 22 July)
Your cash situation will amaze and uplift you! Yes, you really can afford one or two special treats these days and spending some in the direction of a loved one is a definite possibility. You’ll ‘while away the hours’ with them, feeling fulfilled and satisfied. A partner has a great deal on their plate and – if they apply themselves – will find success. You help them too.
Leo (23 July – 22 August)
With the Sun in your sign this month, you’ll be feeling ‘light and bright’ and full of happiness. Being in such a mood throws your intellect out of the window temporarily as you’ll find it almost impossible to work out problems and analyse things. Just relax and enjoy life as it unfolds. As time goes by, a wonderful new work opportunity is offered.
Virgo (23 August – 22 September)
You’ll be ‘in the mood for love and loving’ this month, enjoying the summer warmth and will take the chance to spend time with friends and family, accepting all invites. Life opens up and you go from strength to strength at work where others will love your upbeat, positive and helpful attitude. You could be offered an important charitable or voluntary opportunity.
Libra (23 September – 22 October)
As Venus moves into your sign, you’ll be certainly out for some emotional fulfillment and pleasant pastimes! Your finances go from strength to strength which inspires you and gives you some security in that knowledge. Home issues are demanding with urgent tasks requiring completion and other family members needing some help, attention and support.
Scorpio (23 October – 21 November)
Emotionally, you’re looking for love and fulfillment and will pursue any direction in which you sense that these are to be found! And you won’t be disappointed. But life is frantically ‘busy’ and you’ll find yourself ‘rushed off your feet’. You have to push a point forward and stay the course if you are to solve a problem. Others will be impressed when you do.
Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December)
You’re starting to really think deeply about your long-term plans and projects. Starting your own business certainly appeals but you need to work on feeling more positive and confident in your approach. Your cash situation is a bit demanding and so you’ll be working out just how you can move forward and find that extra money that will help.
Capricorn (22 December – 20 January)
There’s a great deal going on and your feet won’t touch the ground. Nothing could have prepared you for this – as you flounder slightly – but just try to do the best that you can until thing calm down a little. Others are offering you the chance to ‘take the bull by the horns’ and prove yourself ‘once and for all’! You’ve got what it takes and will rise to the challenge.
Aquarius (21 January – 18 February)
You’re energised and inspired to push ahead with some really great plans and ideas that will really rock n’ roll! As the month goes on, you’ll improve your ideas even more and impress even yourself with the detail and ingenuity that these involve. A partner inspires and excites you, giving you an emotional boost and a bit of an extra edge in life!
Pisces (19 February – 19 March)
Love and romance are uppermost in your mind and – happily – also in the mind of the subject of your dreams! Seeking out your special friends and soul-mates is also important, and this brings fulfilment and upliftment. Studying and improving your mind brings new creative thoughts and ideas. Community commitments are heavy and demanding indeed.
