August Sun Sign Stars

August is the time for shining, when Leo rules and the harvest ripens with the sun.  Astrologically, summer ends on 23rd August when Virgo reminds us that we need to get in shape for the autumn. I can help you gain a deep insight into what the most important issues will be for you during this period by examining your own astrological birth chart.   Please go to: www.astroguidance.co.uk to book a session.   You can also call me on 07866 727743 or email me at  howpark@aol.com for more information. 

Leo  You might feel that you are having a moment of personal destiny as you enter August but the full moon will caution you to rein in that ego of yours and reach outwards to others. You will feel the benefit of any acts of generosity mid-month and later, when you can see how these will improve the lives of others.

Virgo  Try to find some time to reflect on what suits you best when it comes to partners. It’s about being realistic about what works for your personality. Virgos tend to like order, organisation, knowing where you stand, above the more unpredictable aspects of having a partner so maybe Hollywood dreams are not for you these days?

Libra  Opportunities to shine in your social circle are highlighted this month, which may lead to relationship opportunities as Venus moves into your sign mid-August.  Of course, it might just be an affair but hey, its sunny and warm so have fun and enjoy not making any decisions! 

Scorpio   You may be looking to make some changes in your home as well as your work life. At its most extreme, you might be desperate for change – any change – so look out for the signs to guide you over the coming months.  It is not going to clear for a while exactly what will work best for you.

Sagittarius  Action and freedom are what motivates you now but one of those cosmic ironies is that what you think you want is not what you get.  There will be some learning required as you adjust to things being not what you expected. And remember: we never learn anything by getting too comfortable!

Capricorn  There are some good opportunities for solid progress with your ambitions in August. As you have learnt, sure footedness gets there in the end. This may not be the end, though, as mid August enables you to formulate amended (probably financial) plans that will take you that next step forward.

Aquarius   How much of what you do for others is actually driven by your own ego? I ask because the August Sun in Leo emphasises the ego and Aquarius is about improving the lot of humanity.  So the point is to think about how these two apparently opposite things can be brought together harmoniously.

Pisces   Are you a bit of a fish out of water in the hot glare of the summer sun? Perhaps, but if you swim deep enough it will be cooler and you will probably catch the drift of where things are going down there in the murky depths. August encourages you to let go and see where the tide wants to take you.

Aries  If you are not using some of the energy of the moment to ponder on the bad stuff that keeps repeating itself in your life, you are missing out on an opportunity to heal some deep hidden wounds that you may be scarcely aware of. If you are brave enough to go there, it may teach you something about your true path in life. 

Taurus  Beginning to feel you don’t know if you are coming or going?  That’s Uranus for you and you can expect more of this as your certainties in life get thrown up in the air.   The 6th and 7th August might be moments to notice in all this.  It might focus attention on any work versus home dilemmas.

Gemini  I’m expecting you to have a pretty nice time in August with not a lot to rock your boat – until you get to the end of the month, that is, when the autumn energy kicks in as the sun goes into Virgo.  But have fun now and enjoy the moment while it lasts.

Cancer  Life can seem unfairly tough in August, with so much to deal with while the sun is shining and all you want to do is relax and chill like everyone else. So don’t take on too many responsibilities until the autumn comes and you return to firmer and more familiar ground.


Flavour of the Month

So many planets appear to be moving backwards in the sky at the moment that we can expect more disruption, arguments, tensions and lack of resolution – think Brexit!  The cosmos takes a long-term view of human progress so all we can do is float with it and wait to see possible clues about where it is all leading.  There’s many a trick of the tail yet left in all this.

On a personal level, this will also be true but these are days when we can all grow to understand ourselves a little better.  This is, paradoxically, best achieved through failing to get what we think we want and learning to just be comfortable with who we are. This will be boring to some, frustrating to others but some of us will find that, actually, it suits us quite well, being let off the hook of all that striving.  That’s not to say don’t do anything: it just means you do what you can to move things forward and leave the rest to fate.  

The summer ends with the sun going into Virgo on 23rd August: the hot weather often breaks then, so enjoy it!
