This will be a busy month, full of interesting developments in two key areas: communication and your home life. Your 3rd house, which rules the mind, is buzzing as August begins and progresses. Venus is traveling retrograde there until September 6, reminding you that you must pay attention to your thought patterns connected to finances and romance as well as your overall self-worth. It's time to rewrite a script in your head that isn't working -- and to remember that your mind is a powerful tool that lays the foundation for your success in all matters. If you think it and believe it, you can achieve it.
When it comes to your earning capacity as well as what you know you deserve in matters of the heart, there's a shift that must happen in order for you to truly feel fulfilled. That shift is an inside job though and it begins with your mindset. Fortunately, Mars will speed things up after August 8, helping you to not only talk the talk but to walk it as well. A New Moon in your communication sector on August 14 might lead you to planting seeds of change that are long overdue.
On August 11, a second major shift occurs. Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance, will enter your 4th House of Home and Family for the first time in twelve years. Until September 2016, Jupiter will remain in this part of your chart, offering an opportunity for you to upsize your living situation in some way. In certain cases, a move is possible and if that happens, you will absolutely love your new abode. This will be a great year to buy a house or to make a renovation on your existing home. Whatever domestic changes you make will ensure peace and happiness on the home front for a long time to come. You may also hear news very soon about a family expansion. Someone close might announce that a baby is on the way. Or, someone might move in with you (a new roommate or a family member).
Pay attention to career news near August 29 -- something fulfilling is likely.
