The first half of August will be defined by hot, summer-lovin' energy! In fact, you're likely to be having the time of your life with someone special. Even if you're not in a relationship, there's every indication that you're doing what brings you the most joy. Your creative drive also sparkles. This is all thanks to the Sun, Venus, and Mars traveling through Leo. On August 8, Venus will trine Jupiter and, on August 14, the Sun will be conjunct Venus. This stretch of time will bring nothing but a smile to your face. Romance, fun, and pleasure rule these days.
A Full Moon in Aquarius on August 15 will bring your awareness to things that are bigger than you and your inner circle. You might have a sensitive reaction to a political or social matter and decide that you want to participate in making important changes that will create a difference collectively.
Then, Mars moves into Virgo on August 18 and, until October 4, your energy focus will be more streamlined, productive, and analytical. This is you becoming a workaholic on steroids because you just won't rest until everything is done. And with Virgo energy in the mix, you'll do it well.
Venus also moves into Virgo on August 21 and remains here through September 21. She'll make you more discerning in matters of the heart, but sometimes it's good to be selective. After all, not just anyone deserves your love; that special someone has to earn it.
Looking for new work or wanting to start a brand-new health regimen? Aim for the New Moon in Virgo on August 30.
