August 2007 Short Horoscopes
The following are short overview horoscopes for an upcoming month, written by Annie for Essential Magazine. For our detailed August monthly horoscopes, see Monthly Horoscopes from August 1st.
A highly creative month is in store for you, Aries, particularly from the 19-22. An opportunity to take a pleasure trip or to otherwise broaden your horizons, perhaps after giving up hope on the matter, is likely to arise. Backtracking is necessary with your personal finances and close partnerships. Past matters resurface and require sensitive attention. Second-guessing should be avoided unless the ultimate goal is improved relations. Focus is on romance and pleasure, but nevertheless both are complicated in August. You are verbally expressive this month, and your excess mental energy needs an outlet.
August is not the most gregarious of months for you, Taurus. There will be times when others find you distant or especially private. Money is strong, your savings are building, and August is good for a partners finances. The idea that money is freedom motivates you. The 13-18 is excellent for connecting with a partner or family member, resolving an old and challenging problem. Dealing with disillusionments regarding your career figures on the 24-26. Going out on a limb for a friend or acquaintance is necessary in the last week of the month.
This month, close partnerships are fortified through healthy conversation. You and a loved one are learning the art of cooperation, and conflicts tend to resolve in your favor. Jointly-held assets and intimacy are strong. August is bound to be a vigorous, fast-paced month. You are especially active, communicative, and thoroughly ready to take action on ideas that have been whirling in your head. In the last week of the month, personal and professional responsibilities are highlighted. Career matters that have been previously hidden come to light and demand attention.
Income, comfort, and security come into strong focus this month, Cancer. Maintaining the status quo is the underlying motivation for your actions. You take especial pride in your material accumulations. Any slowdowns you have been experiencing in work and health matters tend to dissipate. Communication snafus are likely with friends and family, and it’s best to avoid harping on what is said (or not said). Partnerships are strengthened. From the 28th, inner restlessness is stimulated and you form connections to new people with different ideas. A travel opportunity may be part of the picture.
You are especially expressive and your social life picks up pace this month, Leo. You are less inclined to simply muse about a life-long dream, and more inclined to take the steps towards achieving it. You might enjoy a return on speculative investments, and a financial settlement is likely. A creative stump or writers block lifts. Disappointments with a relationship matter arise on the 13-14. However, resolve and increased confidence in loved ones occur from the 15-22. A romance may settle, or a past relationship matter is sorted out.
This month, the desire to get away from it all is strong, Virgo, and increased career demands may be at the root of this. Your best strategy is to do your best to meet your responsibilities on the job, but also to know when to leave problems behind at the office. Avoid jumping ahead with financial initiatives for the time being. Its best to review your financial affairs. Relationship tests arise from the 28th. The end result is increased insight into the hearts of the important people in your life.
Your higher ideals as well as non-committed relationships figure prominently this month, Libra. Intellectual stimulation and compatibility, and perhaps a little adventure to spice up your life, is what you seek. Love can be found in places or situations far removed from your everyday life, and travel could be strengthening for a partnership. Others could find you distant or hard to reach in August, as you tend to rethink your life path. Career matters heat up from the 28th, and changes on the work front are in store.
Your yearly career peak occurs in August, dear Scorpio, and you can expect new or increased responsibilities. Success is more important to you than usual, and you take special pride in what you do as well as how you do it. Finances are strong, and financial deals and matters move forward after a slump. Tests to your partnerships are likely, and you could find a partner is distant or hard to reach. Give others breathing room. A creative project bears fruit, or a romance heats up, in the last few days of the month.
August is especially strong for romance, adventure, and creative expression. Relationships with loved ones are intense, heated, and dramatic. Personal plans move forward, and you might experience a strong need to change the way you come across to others through your personal appearance or mannerisms. Institutes of higher learning or foreign places hold stronger appeal and could be the backdrop for interesting twists to your life story. Domestic matters demand sensitive attention in the last week of the month.
For the most part, August is a period of review and refinement for you, Capricorn. Building new strategies on the career front becomes necessary, and second-guessing your current job or life path comes naturally now. However, making big changes in the work you do could be the cause for regret next month. Reviewing strategies is wiser than putting them into action. Fulfillment through a friendship occurs in the first week. Attracting what or who you want is easiest on the 12-14. A financial break or settlement is likely on the 21.
Partnering, romantic expression, and negotiations are the hot topics in August for you, dear Aquarius. Romantic and creative matters become pressing or heated. Impulsive attractions, or a sudden desire to breathe new life into existing relationships, figure in the second half of the month. Travel or education plans require revision before they can be put into action. Friendships thrive and partnerships get top billing, particularly on the 21-22. An important financial matter comes to light in the last week of the month.
Routine matters, attention to health and wellness, and work receive top billing this month, Pisces. Career matters push forward and you feel on top of your game professionally. Increased activity in and about your home could stress you out. However, you can also use this extra energy constructively by making changes to your domestic routine, renovating, or otherwise working towards improving your living conditions. Youre wearing your emotions on your sleeve in the last week of the month, when a personal matter comes to light.
