WHAT’S ON THE CARDS
ARIES (20 MARCH — 19 APRIL)
August 2017 will form a milestone in your life, my Arian friends. In fact, the trine aspect of your ruling planet, the Sun, combined with a trine from Mars and Saturn, will enable you to experience some profoundly liberating situations that will bring you pure good fortune. You will have opportunities that will aim to reinforce your sense of values in a positive way. Your priorities will become clearly obvious in your eyes and you’ll have no difficulty in getting these across to those around you. These influences will encourage you to be more aware and this will make your life easier on all fronts. If you are on holiday, you also won’t fail to look closely at yourself, which will enable you to feel enthusiastic at the end of the holidays in your working life as well as your future and stability. Your love-life will be filled with passion and subtlety at the same time. This wonderful paradox could push you into making a formal commitment!
TAURUS (19 APRIL — 20 MAY)
August 2017 will reveal the changes to be put in place of your own volition, so you can simplify the course of your life. In fact, the transits of the Sun and Mars in square aspect to your sign will underline the discrepancy between your needs and what your life is really like at the moment, through the situations you will be going through. These intervals will have a tendency to cause you irritation and make you a perfectionist in your vision of how things should be. Your demands on yourself and those around you will excourage you to excel, improve or deny your needs. It will be all or nothing, with a sense of subtlety difficult to find until 21st August. Saturn and Uranus are going to form a trine aspect to Mars and the Sun, which will be useful for concluding situations that have run their course and will require a clear cut-off point from you. Venus, in sextile aspect to your sign in her transit through Cancer, will grant you a warm love-life!
GEMINI (20 MAY — 20 JUNE)
August 2017 will bring good news in a positive way in your finances and material concerns. You will have an opportunity to consolidate your gains, get involved in exchanges with others, and negotiations that will progressively lead to useful agreements in the long term. Mars in sextile aspect to your sector will give you increasing mental energy, encouraging you to move forward in all directions. This will be the problem: you could be in danger of spreading yourself too thin and will need to channel this enthusiasm constructively, in line with your priorities. Saturn and Uranus will form a trine aspect to Mars and the Sun will place you in the front line of those who won’t lack the opportunities for enriching your relationships with a new approach, with new ones that will encourage your creativity in the direction of new paths, as yet unknown . It will be up to you to choose your allies carefully without undue haste.
CANCER (20 JUNE — 22 JULY)
August 2017 looks set to be intense in terms of the personal action you will need to take. In fact, the transit of Mars through your symbolic Second House will lead to events that will force you to take action one way or another and come out of your shell to make your official position clearer. This will stabilise your finances. However, this process will also be centre-stage in your love-life if you are in a relationship at the moment. Your partner will be demanding, assert him/herself and encouraging you to assert yourself more forcefully, in order to find new balance in line with the progress of your relationship. The transit of Venus through your sign will encourage you to achieve a considerable feat: to assert yourself, but do it gently. You will manage to do this with quiet strength. Those of you who are single will be on the look-out for encounters that will encourage you to make life-changes!
LEO (22 JULY — 22 AUGUST)
August 2017 looks set to be intense on a variety of fronts. Your self-assertiveness will be more developed and you will be guided here by a pressing need for action and change on all fronts. The conjunction of the Sun and Mars in your sign, combined with a trine aspect from Saturn and Uranus, will make you become aware of new projects and desires, to move forward, overcome these desires, to a broader sense of achievement. The trine aspect from Saturn to Mars will give direction to your actions in a climate of security. Despite the fact that you will be more impulsive, you will put actions into practice that would have been thought out with maturity, even if only subconsciously. We therefore don’t need to put you too much on your guard against your impulses, my dear Leonine friends! Your love-life will be over a barrel this month. It will be up to you not to forget to maintain your dearest relationships, despite your frenetic activities.
VIRGO (22 AUGUST — 22 SEPTEMBER)
August 2017 will augur well for taking a rest, especially psychologically. In fact, you will feel a considerable need to carry out reviews and assimilate all that has happened over the past year. These last twelve months will have been filled with external circumstances that have developed interesting inner changes, which you will be able to start upon next month. The influence of Mars in the shadow of your sign will make you reflect on changes of direction to make in relation to your future, but the time for action won’t have arrived yet. It will be a case of fine-tuning and refining your plans, finding winning strategies by eliminating any uncertain elements. The Sun’s influence in both the Ninth and Twelfth House of your sign this month will face you with situations that will favour exchanges with friends and those in your social circles. They will help you discern the beginnings of solutions or new avenues of investigation for your future, which will add a dynamic angle to your creative flair.
