Horoscopes for August by Jeanne Douglas

Aries (20 March – 19 April): There are lessons in ‘getting your own way’ this month and this is an absolute headache! For you’re having to work hard to hold your ground and to bring forward your well-thought out ideas. You’re at the end of a phase where new commitments are well worth investing in although this puts a carefree attitude behind you.
Taurus (20 April – 20 May): Changes at home offset ‘the end of a work project’ and so your life may take a delicious swing towards more domestic affairs, with some rest and relaxation thrown in! This also gives you some time to think through a few plans, realising that they will involve real physical application and a radical departure from old ways.
Gemini (21 May – 20 June): Your daily routine goes through significant changes and this impacts positively on your social life! Look out for opportunities to get out and meet some new faces and to take up a hobby or two. Teaching activities and links with children are particularly well-aspected. You abandon an old worn-out plan or idea; time for new ones.
Cancer (21 June – 22 July): New ways to raise cash come into view – much to your satisfaction. A friendship or social acquaintance ends as practical circumstances dictate. A partnership continues to be particularly taxing although some respite is promised over the warm summer months and holiday season. Your social life is still spicy and fun!
Leo (23 July – 22 August): New ideas where practical tasks are welcome and give you inspirational upliftment! A partner in love or business wanders off to greener pastures, leaving you free to ‘do your own thing’. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, you decide! So ‘freedom at last’ although work will be unusually demanding and keep you grounded.
Virgo (23 August – 22 September): A great new long-term idea spices up your life even though you’re a little concerned as to the direction of your working life, with ‘endings’ – rather than beginnings – coming into view. So ‘trust’ and go with the flow! Heavy events and social responsibilities lie heavily on your shoulders. You’ll be glad when they’re done.
Libra (23 September – 22 October): Life continues its rather fun and enjoyable way – and this actually has a positive impact on your business, although you’re ‘lost for words’ as to why! Yes, it seems that you can’t ‘put a foot wrong’ even though – in hindsight – you’re actually putting a great deal of energy into things, far more than you realise. Well done!
Scorpio (23 October – 21 November): You may think that your finances are back-sliding a little but – rest assured – that this is just a temporary thing. On a more practical level, your daily routine is proving to be a little tough, with lots of hard work needed in order to maintain your current position. Long-standing issues are resolved on the home-front.
Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December): Emotionally, though things are good, you’re not quite sure ‘where to go from here’. It’s best therefore to take things slowly, one step at a time. You’re having to work hard for every penny these days and so you’ll be pleased when some job comes to an end, happily completed. New ideas flood in!
Capricorn (22 December – 20 January): You’re confused with hard work, masking what’s really in front of you. Never mind – keep trying! For your attempts will pay off. Your finances are set for a revision and you’ll breathe a sigh of relief when you move on. A new friend turns out to be a real soul mate and this will bring much hope and excitement.
Aquarius (21 January – 18 February): You know that you have to give up certain plans and ideas now and this could be almost forced on you unless you do so! For partners, close friends and relatives come up with some improved versions and you’d be wise to pay attention. With your social life and finances vague and nebulous, just ‘go with the flow’.
Pisces (19 February – 19 March): You’ve reached the end of an old phase and the start of a new one! A new job or work project could well coincide with such developments. Friends and acquaintances are sheer hard work and you’re confounded at times. As your own career is running very well, it could be that others are wondering just how you did it!
