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. You can achieve your “di­rec­tor’s cut” later and the re­sults will al­ter your am­bi­tions for months. Avoid the eclipse pe­ri­ods near Au­gust 7 and 21 as you will not have the com­plete pic­ture then. 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. The world, in par­tic­u­lar the US, will be af­fected by the eclipses near Au­gust 7 and 21. There will be a domino ef­fect which touches you as well, so avoid mak­ing big de­ci­sions about a trip, book, web­site, course or long-dis­tance link.

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. If you can do this any time you may want to wait un­til af­ter Septem­ber 11, as you will ex­pe­ri­ence de­lays or changes un­til then. 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. Others will hold up a mir­ror that will help you make an im­por­tant de­ci­sion which af­fects you in 2018. Al­low un­til at least Septem­ber 10 for fi­nal de­ci­sions, as the chance of reschedul­ing is very high. Skip the eclipses near Au­gust 7 and 21 as they make the sit­u­a­tion with this man (or woman) hard to see clearly.

Pisces Feb 20-Mar 20

What hap­pened at the end of July makes Au­gust a month for de­ci­sions about your body, life­style, work­load and rou­tine. Take your time and al­low room for changes or de­lays. If you go ahead with a ma­jor plan or choice near the eclipses on Au­gust 7 and 21, make al­lowances for the fact that you may not have the full story. It could be help­ful to look for an­swers later on, as eclipses tend to cre­ate blind spots.

Aries Mar 21-Apr 21

What took place with chil­dren (even grown-up chil­dren) at the end of

July will take all of Au­gust to re­solve. Pa­per­work, com­puter or phone com­pli­ca­tions sur­round your choices and it may not be un­til Septem­ber 10 that de­tails are fi­nal. Sched­ules, dat­ing web­sites and plans that de­pend on com­mu­ni­ca­tion may be af­fected. Avoid the eclipses near Au­gust 7 and 21 for ma­jor de­ci­sions as noth­ing is fully clear to you then.

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. If you’re buy­ing, selling or rent­ing prop­erty, read the fine print. Avoid the lu­nar eclipse near Au­gust 7 and the so­lar eclipse near the 21st be­cause you won’t see the whole story. Be wary with ren­o­va­tions, mort­gage in­ter­est rates or new flat­mates or ten­ants.

Gem­ini May 22-Jun 22

Your rul­ing planet, Mer­cury, is ret­ro­grade or mov­ing back­wards and for­wards. This is what will hap­pen to a project, idea, com­puter or tele­phone, so have Plan B. Au­gust is su­per for a re­hearsal or first at­tempt with plans. Avoid the eclipse pe­ri­ods near Au­gust 7 and 21. If you in­tend to make a new be­gin­ning, be aware of the po­ten­tial for mis­takes or tech­ni­cal is­sues. Once Septem­ber is un­der way, go back to the draw­ing board or per­fect your con­cept.

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. Even though a choice must be made fol­low­ing the events of late July, you may pre­fer to wait un­til Septem­ber 10. If you go ahead, do more than the usual re­search.
