Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
Down tools if you can and go out and play. This is your month to get the creative juices flowing by relaxing and birthing something new. Your starting point is being as spontaneous as possible. This is an inviting thought for an Aries. Spontaneity is easy for you but the relaxing part may be a little harder. You need to create space to be creative. This could mean sitting in nature and breathing in the fresh air or picking up paint brushes and splashing colour. Watch the children around you and copy them. Little children know how to live in the moment. This is your delightful challenge this month.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
Home and hearth are the focal points this month. You can take pleasure from fixing, decorating and fine-tuning your living quarters, and from the company of loving family members. It is the small things that comfort you. If your household irritates you then maybe it is time for a change. This could mean changing your current home, or perhaps moving to a new one. A move of house is never an inviting thought for a security conscious Taurean but now is not the time to be bull-headed. You do not have to move. You simply need to ensure that your home is a comfortable haven for you and your loved ones.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
This month you get to do what you do best – connect with your network of family, friends and colleagues. Communication is the name of the game and it is something that you do so well. It is time to improve your networks, perhaps through some new channels or by fine-tuning the current ones. Your mind is active, your thoughts flowing and the means to express yourself is readily available. This is not the month to be small-minded. Keep focussed on the big picture. You may also benefit by having an avenue of escape. It is time to dream, and then communicate your vision far and wide.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
Money matters are on your mind this month. It is time to reassess your earnings and budget. At first you may have more questions than answers. Are you focusing on matters that boost your self-esteem and finances or are you distracted by activities that do not boost the coffers? Are you valuing your own worth and are others valuing you too? You may seek the answers and discover that all is well. On the other hand you may need to make some changes. August is the time to focus on practicalities rather than dreams. Bills need to be paid and this is your month to decide how best to handle your finances.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
The start of August sees you take centre stage, right in the limelight. What are you going to do with your time in the Sun? The choice is yours. This is your chance for self-improvement and enjoyment. The planets have been favouring your Zodiac Sign for some time and so you may already have made some new and exciting plans. You still have time to makeover your physical self and/or to implement new projects. By the middle of August you are likely to be focused on more practical matters, fine-tuning your recent changes.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Creative ideas may have been floating around in your subconscious for a while now. A little more groundwork is needed before you are able to move forward with these plans and truly shine. It is not much longer now. Two positive planets – Venus and Jupiter – are moving into your Zodiac Sign this month heralding good fortune. You have a few loose ends to tie up before rewards come your way. Whatever you are planning is well worth the wait.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
Your social calendar is full this month. This is likely to be because you are looking after other people. Putting other people first is second nature for loving Librans and so in some ways you are in your element. August sees you cooking, cleaning, washing and generally listening to and pacifying your loved ones. However, you also need to ensure that your social networks are supporting you. The trick is to also look after yourself.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
Your professional life takes centre stage during August. It is time to apply yourself to career matters. Meaning, purpose and destiny may all be helpful matters to dwell on. Your life could change direction if so you desire. The question is what direction? If you are unsure then try to see the bigger picture. What gives you meaning when it comes to your working life? Perhaps you are happy to work a day job and pursue a public passion at night? On the other hand you may be ready to seek a more meaningful career path.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
You can take aim and achieve your target this month. Archers love to aspire for big things. Right now you can aspire and achieve. You may also inspire others with your plans. You are unlikely to sweat the details. This is your time to pursue the big picture. Study, travel, teaching, and spiritual pursuits may be in your itinerary this month. It is time for you spread your wings and fly, an easy command for an enthusiastic Sagittarian. This is your month to be unfettered and alive. Growth comes through positivity and compassion.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Your social life may take back stage this month as you assess where you invest your time and energy. You may also be examining your financial investments, your shared resources. If things are not working then you are ready to make the necessary changes. Seasons come and seasons go. Right now you are enjoying a change of seasons in your life. Your moral compass is likely to guide you well.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Partnerships play a prominent role in your life during August. This could be your nearest and dearest, or it could be a business associate or contract. It is time for you to pay attention to your liaisons rather than ignore them. The trick is to enjoy the unions that are fruitful, and to make changes to those that are not. If you can plan a special trip with a loved one then now is a good time to do so. Try to focus on those who support you rather than seek their support.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
You take your car in for a service on a regular basis. If you have children or pets then you look after them well. Now it is time to do the same thing for yourself. Your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health are all due for a check-up. If you are feeling out of sorts then it is time to get back on track. Be gentle on yourself right now. The trick is to look at your lifestyle and make changes that boost your sense of well being.
