August 2018 Horoscopes 


What does fulfillment look like to you? This month you’re asked to delve inwards to answer that question. This may mean tuning out some of the outside noise from the rest of the world long enough for you to hear yourself. Though this isn’t about letting your thoughts run amuck. Seek out beauty.

You’re governed by Mercury (the planet of expression), so you deeply value communication. Accordingly, when Mercury isn’t functioning properly, you feel all sorts of uncomfortable. Fortunately, Mercury goes direct on Sunday, August 19, and after nearly four weeks of obnoxious malfunctions, you’re back in the game.


As if you weren’t already the belle of the ball, your popularity soars this month as people are clamoring over themselves to get next to you. Your secret to success will be on networking and connecting with those in your circle. Friends come bearing opportunities. Take some time to update your look.

Venus enters your sign on Monday, August 6, and since you’re governed by Venus, these combined energies feel fabulous. Over the next few weeks, fortify your exquisite tastes with trips to art galleries, wine tasting excursions, or a few indulgent shopping sprees. Remember, Libra, love doesn’t always require partnership. Sometimes, simply satisfying your personal proclivities is the more rewarding romance. 


Get ready to hit boss-level status this month because the spotlight is on your career. You could pull in an impressive job offer or receive widespread recognition for your work and reputation. Either way, your words and ideas will make a lasting impact on others. Meanwhile, make time for rest and self-care

As a water sign, your superpowers are defined by your incredible intuition. On Monday, August 6, Venus (the planet of beauty and love) moves into Libra, activating your mysterious Twelfth House. You’ll be drawn to extremely powerful energetic connections, and any relationship formed during this time will be undoubtedly karmic. 


A new adventure awaits you this month when you’re called to rise from your slumber and get back into this game called life. What stokes your fire? Where are you itching to go? What do you want to learn most? This is your moment to begin executing your vision. A publishing opportunity could arrive too.

A new cosmic season begins on Thursday, August 23, when the sun moves into Virgo, illuminating the area of your chart associated with your long-term legacy. To put it bluntly, this month is major for your career. With our solar system’s brightest star shining directly on the top of your chart — an area known by astrologers as the Tenth House — you are ready to be seen. 


If you feel like you’ve been operating at half-speed over the last few weeks, you should get the energy you need to conquer the world, while receiving the courage you need to conquer your fears. While there will be things outside of your control, your goal is to focus on what you can. Heal thyself

Although Mars began moonwalking in Aquarius, it’s shuffled so far back over the past two months that it’s actually reentered your sign. That’s right, love, Mars is back in Capricorn, so if you’ve been feeling some major slowdowns, this cosmic inversion is definitely to blame. Fortunately, Mars will be back in business on Monday, August 27 — just in time for a new celestial cycle.


Partnership takes center stage for you this month as someone could walk into your life that not only sets your heart on fire but just may push you to rethink what you know about relationships. Hint: you’re not immune to them. 

Eclipses are linked to destiny, so changes over the past two years have helped illuminate your karmic path. The solar eclipse on  Saturday, August 11 is time to crystallize everything you’ve learned over the past two years, Aquarius babe. It may sound a bit corny, but mid-month, prepare to be the change that you want to see in the world.


Your health and routines come up for some much needed changes as you’re pushed to take better care of yourself and your day-to-day responsibilities. If it’s been awhile since you’ve had a medical exam or check-up, this is a good time for a visit. At the same time, money begins to improve.

The only full moon this year in your sign electrifies the sky on Sunday, August 26. This is a huge day for you, which is bound to expose critical information about your existing interpersonal dynamics. Whether you’re seeking commitment or closure, August will surely go out with a bang.


Love is a big theme for you this month as you’re called to bring out the best within you and to love it with all of your heart. At the same time, romance enters the picture and you could meet someone that knocks your socks off. If already attached, the bond deepens between you two. Release your fears.

On Monday, August 6, Venus (the planet of love, beauty, and money) shifts into Libra. Libra is your opposite sign, and activates the area of your chart associated with long-term, serious partnerships: While Aries symbolizes “me,” Libra represents “we.” You’ll be beaming this month, so this is a great time to kick-off or fortify new relationships with lovers, friends, or professional partners 


As you and the world you live in continues to shift and change, your home zone is lit up this month which may call for a move or an opportunity to relocate. A job offer could be the thing that inspires the move as well as your craving for a fresh start. Remember to treat yourself well. A dream could come true if you trust your first instincts.

Virgo season kicks off on Thursday, August 23, highlighting the area of your chart linked to arts, creativity, and play. With the sun now coasting through this like-minded earth sign, you’ll be ready to share your talents with the world. For the next several weeks, all eyes will be on you, so don’t be surprised if you begin attracting lots of attention.


Don’t be surprised if an impressive opportunity lands in your lap, especially where media, journalism, or education is concerned. You’re known for having just the right words at the right time and this month, people will be clamoring to hear them. Love heats up.

If you’ve recently gotten too comfortable gossiping and discussing the matters of others, the Saturday, August 11 solar eclipse in Leo may rock your world. Sure, you’re a social butterfly, Gemini, but it’s important to flutter outside of your comfort zone.


Money is a big focus this month because you could score some major cash by way of a job offer or similar opportunity. At the same time, your mission, should you choose to accept, is to work on honoring your self-worth and knowing what your non-negotiables are. Home and family will be a bright spot.CancerJune 21 - July 22

The fast-moving planet of communication has been retrograde in Leo since late July, leading to some seriously frustrating financial fallacies. But fear not, love. After three weeks in retrograde, Mercury resumes a forward flow on Sunday, August 19, which will help you regain your footing.


Your star continues to rise as the cosmos showers its goodies down on you. Let self-doubt go out the window and criticism roll off your back because the only one that matters right now is you. And not in a “me against the world” kind of way; more like a “me in the world doing my thing and loving it” way

On  Saturday, August 11, a solar eclipse in your sign electrifies the sky. With the moon and sun in the same position, your emotions will be front and center, so give yourself plenty of space to process what you're feeling. Things have been changing rapidly, Leo darling, and while shifts aren’t easy, these critical pivots ensure that you’re on the right path to your personal truth.
