The following are short overview horoscopes for an upcoming month, also seen in Essential Magazine. For our detailed August monthly horoscopes, see Monthly Horoscopes from August 1st.
Two distinct themes dominate your month: pleasure and work! You have more energy to pour into work, organizing your personal environment, and health routines. Its a great month to start an exercise or nutrition program. As well, your love life heats up. A partner is in a playful mood, and you respond in kind. Money or emotional support comes from hidden sources this month. Healthy speculation may pay off. Your powers of attraction sky-rocket, and an old friend could re-appear in your life. In August, youre working hard and playing hard!
The conflicting demands of family and career grab your attention, particularly around the 9th. Its all about obligations now, and how you deal with the pressure is critical. The cosmos will force you to get serious about your finances from the 20th-27th, so it would be wise to start working on getting things in order before then. The good news is that you have the energy to do it! As well, your love life is speeding up, and a powerful attraction could be part of the picture mid-month.
Much focus on dealing with the mundane details of life finds you itching for adventure, especially around the 9th. Youre especially creative and expressive from the 11th, an excellent period for getting your ideas across. By the 18th, your dreams and visions will be put to the test and you are called upon to back them up with hard facts. A business romance or partnership is a strong possibility towards the end of the month. The mood is lighthearted and communicative when it comes to your love life.
What you have–and what you don’t have–occupies your thoughts most of the month. Your sweet tooth for material things is strong right now. There could be a collision between your dreams and reality when it comes to personal finances, especially around the 9th, but if youve planned well youll welcome looking reality in the eye. A pleasant surprise in the romance department is in store the last week of August–a period when most things seem to be flowing smoothly and in your favor. Working your charm is effortless now.
Youre in for a memorable month. All eyes are on you, and you like it that way. This month, a partner could be especially vague–even downright irresponsible in your eyes. A clash between what you think is realistic and what you feel is completely out to lunch on the part of your companion or partner is very possible, particularly around the 9th. Overall, however, you are especially charming this month. Even though the ball is definitely in your court, you cannot ignore what your partner has to say.
For you, August is normally a time for privacy, relaxation, and preparation. Same goes for this year, but youre much more energetic than usual. Youre compelled to take on any challenge that comes your way, and youre in no mood to compromise! Doing it alone is best, but try to hold off until the last week of August before pushing ahead with new projects. The 7th and 20th are power days for attracting love or cementing a current relationship, but the 31st can bring deceptions to light.
Excitement runs high most of the month, although you could encounter some mixed signals from a lover or friend. You are especially busy working towards realizing your long-term goals, and the need to let down your hair becomes obvious around the 9th. Unpredictability on the job or the unusual behavior of a co-worker could throw you off-center mid-month. Trying to separate fact from fiction in your love life could put you on an emotional rollercoaster, but by the last week of August, moderation in your life comes as a welcome relief.
August is all about performance. Showing others your competent side comes easily. While your career and public life speed up, don’t make the mistake of ignoring the home front. Striking a balance between energy spent on work and time spent on personal matters is essential now. It’s time to prioritize. Otherwise, you run the risk of over-extending yourself and alienating your loved ones. A financial opportunity presents itself in the last week of August–dont miss it. Recognition or even a promotion comes your way around the 16th.
This month finds you especially adventurous and energetic. For the most part, things run smoothly, although you may have some convincing or explaining to do around the 9th. Creativity and energy runs high in your career. Youre called upon to take charge, and you do so with gusto. You want to leave your unique stamp on whatever you do now. August is a strong month for you on a financial level. Opportunities to increase your income could come from travel or overseas, and good news arrives in the last week of August.
Its not like you to neglect the details of your personal finances, but things that have slipped through the cracks come up for inspection. Reality sets in, and the necessity to curb your excesses becomes apparent. A romantic partner is looking for more intimacy. Luckily, you are prepared to give it. Honest communication on emotionally-charged topics, like power dynamics and shared finances, is the way to go now. A feeling of being truly valued and appreciated is with you, and your powers of attraction peak around the 27th.
You could very well feel like the ball is in the other court this month. A partner may demand answers–something concrete–and you are not on the same page. Try not to say something you will regret later around the 9th when your emotions run high. The necessity to strike a balance between autonomy and dependence becomes apparent, and money could be the source of conflict. The pressure eases by the last week of the month, when a career opportunity or income boost leaves you feeling optimistic.
Work and health are the major arenas of your life that are in focus now. This month, youre challenged to separate fact from fiction, particularly with regards to a co-worker or job situation. Feeling blocked by others feels real but is actually temporary. If youve been on the fence about pursuing a love interest, the last week of August is a good time to do so. You may be inspired to create better health habits, or to begin a new diet or fitness regimen.
