Leo Jul 24-Aug 23
August finds the Sun in your sign, Leo, and the spotlight will be on your name or face. Avoid the lunar eclipse on August 7 and solar eclipse on the 21st for major decisions such as cosmetic surgery, new business cards, selfpromotion or a new social media profile. It may not be until the second week of September that a complicated and delayed situation can finally be settled. The events of 1999 or 2000 may have an impact, as a cycle repeats, and choices you made about your profile could easily come back to you now.
Virgo Aug 24-Sep 23
You’ll be behind the scenes in August, or dealing with a secret which must either be concealed or revealed. Your ruler, Mercury, is retrograde so allow for changes or a reversal by September 10. If your work involves hush-hush documents, pay attention to your computer, phone and shredder. If you must cover things up, for any reason, avoid the eclipses near August 7 and 21, as you will be kept in the dark.
Libra Sep 24-Oct 23
The friend or group which matters most to you dominates August. You need to make a decision after the news you received in late July, but it may be more helpful to postpone choices until the second half of September. Until then, you may face communication problems, absences or technical issues. Skip the eclipses near August 7 and 21, as these events conceal, rather than reveal. If planning a team or club event, have alternatives and back-ups.
Scorpio Oct 24-Nov 22
Your career, unpaid work, university degree or parenting role will be surrounded by unanswered questions until September 11, so treat August as a film director treats the first take.

If applying for a job or leaving one, seek second opinions.
Sagittarius Nov 23-Dec 21
Changes affecting travel, the web, publishing, universities and national or foreign connections will affect you in August. Double-check arrangements on the day and have alternatives.

Capricorn Dec 22-Jan 20
If your financial, business or charity situation reminds you of 1999 or 2000, you are correct. Old cycles are repeating and there are debts to pay or rewards to collect.

Allow for this when you are dealing with your bank, accountant and real estate agent. The eclipses near August 7 and 21 should be avoided as you may be blind to facts then.
Aquarius Jan 21-Feb 19
The relationship you have with your former, current or potential partner will draw a lot of attention in August. This also applies to enemies or rivals.

Taurus Apr 22-May 21
Your family, hometown or homeland poses a major question in August, but allow for delays, changes or second attempts until September 10.

Cancer Jun 23-Jul 23
You are ruled by the Moon so the lunar eclipse on August 7 and solar eclipse on the 21st affect you more than others. The road to a final decision on your money, house, business, charity, or apartment will take twists and turns. Check paperwork and keep important emails or statements.
