August 2021 Monthly Horoscopes
Shine Like the Sun.
Happy August! Here are the monthly horoscopes for all signs.
The eighth month of the year is always a month filled with sun, fun, romance, courage, and light-hearted energy. With the Sun in Leo for the first three weeks, we are all encouraged to let our unique qualities shine through and follow our hearts.
By the end of the month, our focus will shift towards work and our daily routines when the Sun moves into Virgo. But for now, enjoy your time in the Sun.
One of the most important days of the month is August 8th. On that day, there will be a New Moon in the sign of Leo and some powerful energy thanks to the Lion's Gate Portal. Set your sights and intentions on anything that your heart truly desires.
Midmonth, the planet of surprises, Uranus, will station retrograde. With Uranus, Saturn, and Jupiter retrograde this month, we'll all be turning inward and reassessing what's important in our lives.
Both Mercury and Venus will be transiting into their home signs of Virgo and Libra, respectively. Mercury will have us all in an analytical frame of mind, which is great for getting things done. Venus in Libra will call our attention to those things in our lives that may be out of balance to make those things truly beautiful.
With a second Full Moon in the sign of Aquarius on August 22nd, we are, again, being urged to look towards the future by focusing on the things we need to leave behind.
For you, Aries, August is all about creativity, romance, and having fun, as the Sun is shining brightly in your 5th house of self-expression. Try not to take things too seriously. You'll have plenty of time to do that when the Sun shifts into your 6th house of work and health on the 22nd.
Speaking of the 6th house, your planetary ruler, Mars, will be hanging out there all month, which means that you'll likely be doing the most when it comes to getting your health in order or getting organized at work. Any work you put in will definitely have a positive effect; you may be rewarded with more money or an unexpected promotion.
If you are looking to conceive or give birth to a creative endeavor, set those intentions at the New Moon on the 8th. The Full Moon on the 22nd will highlight any imbalances with friendships. If you are giving too much or too little, that would be the time to set things straight.
August may start out a bit quiet for you, Taurus, as your focus will likely be directed inward toward affairs at home. You may find that during the first part of the month, you are focused on having your basic needs met and being vocal about that. If communications with loved ones don't exactly go as planned, don't get too frustrated. Once Mercury moves into Virgo on the 11th, try again.
Use the energy of the New Moon on the 8th to set intentions related to your home life, whether that be your physical dwelling or its inhabitants.
