Horoscopes for August by Jeanne Douglas

Aries (20 March – 19 April):
The only advice that you can really take notice of this month is your very own! For only you hold the key to unlock the next stages of your life. However, this may not be all plain sailing as staring truth ‘in the face’ often hurts. So expect a whole new phase to unfold, so different from the life that you were living before.
Taurus (20 April – 20 May):
Your wonderful practical nature ‘comes to the rescue’ again and again during August! It seems that the person you trust the most is actually yourself. Time spent ‘out and about’ this month is time well spent as getting outdoors and into the fresh air is just what you really need. Gardening may also get your keen focus.
Gemini (21 May – 20 June):
Life pushes you hard this month, with one thing and another – and somehow ‘all at the same time’! It’s a good job that you’re good at multi-tasking and you haven’t known such a busy phase for quite some time. You’ll be glad of a rest when the dust settles and so maybe plan a nice holiday or break soon; you won’t regret it.
Cancer (21 June – 22 July):
It’s time for you to concentrate and to focus on some quite important financial and legal detail. Yes, it’s usually ‘in the small print’ so take care not to rush or skip over things. It could be that you avoid some fruitless mistake or even find some information out that could open a very big door to a much-desired personal wish.
Leo (23 July – 22 August):
You’re like a child as you finally get to ‘go out and play’ in the big grand world! Others must surely forgive you as you bound and run about, pleased to be catching up with all your friends and enjoying the pleasures of the wider world! Your greatest desire is to travel and have fun, getting away from the routine! Take your time.
Virgo (23 August – 22 September):
Administration has always been a special talent of yours and you’ll be wading through enough of it this month! So spending time indoors will be necessary if you are to ‘get ahead of the game’. You may notice some quiet secret or honest truth of a family member, if you decide to spend more time with them. Interesting.
Libra (23 September – 22 October):
It will seem this month as if all the chores of the household are falling upon you! Good job that you won’t mind too much and decide to ‘put your back into it’. You overhear a conversation that is simply quite fascinating and will see you embarking on doing more research. You start to see and understand more as a result.
Scorpio (23 October – 21 November):
Fetching and carrying for family members is essential this month, if they are to be ‘set up’ and ‘sorted out’. This will then lighten the load over the coming months of autumn and winter, where you’ll certainly have more time on your hands then. But others are finding it hard to appreciate you! Give it time.
Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December):
When everyone asks you to help them all at the same time, just remind them of how much you have to do! You should be forgiven if you want to run away this month, in order to escape the general chaos and mayhem that you perceive around you. Thus, tranquil parks, lakes and beautiful hilltops revitalise you.
Capricorn (22 December – 20 January):
You’re so busy yet it seems as if you have nothing to show for it. It may feel as though you’re chasing your tail and not getting anywhere at all. So try and slow down if you can and study your situation a little more! It’s then that you’ll find out just who is really ‘pulling the strings’ and can do something about it.
Aquarius (21 January – 18 February):
You spend much time this month, dreaming your dreams and creating new ones! You’d like a holiday but need the cash for something else. If only things were more straight-forward as everything seems a little complex at the moment and multi-dimensional. Just keep going and allow the dust to settle. All is well.
Pisces (19 February – 19 March):
Everyone is keen to see you and catch up this month but you’re in a quiet and thoughtful mood, feeling highly creative and poetic! So, do give your hobbies and talents a little time and space and try to share these with others – at least those who really appreciate your talents. Short daily trips really give you a boost.
