August 2023 Horoscopes


STAR OF THE MONTH

LEO

23 JULY - 22 AUGUST


Happy birthday, Leo. There’s nothing you love more than having an adoring partner by your side reminding you how wonderful you are. This Full Moon asks that you pull back on the spending as well as sharing a little of the limelight. An aesthetic epiphany takes place mid-month, and you finally settle on the creative direction you are willing to commit to. This isn’t something to be rushed, so I urge you to create an elaborate mood board as well as budget projections before you get busy with the scissors. Mercury retrograde means you need to keep your receipts.

 

VIRGO

23 AUGUST – 22 SEPTEMBER

The Full Moon reminds you just how hard you have been working and how much you’ve been giving to others. The otherworld is full of wisdom as well as the peace you long for. Mercury, retrograde in your sign, could induce a crisis of confidence, which has you questioning your life and your career. Don’t hurry; you have plenty of time to meditate through this. Doing less is more efficient.


LIBRA

23 SEPTEMBER – 22 OCTOBER

August is all about finding new ways to have fun (or rediscovering what you used to do for fun before you became a responsible adult). Spending time with children or revisiting your inner child around the Full Moon helps you remember that you are a playful creator with a vivid imagination. Take a leadership role and gather a group together mid-month to embark upon a colourful new social activity.


SCORPIO

23 OCTOBER – 21 NOVEMBER

Like a bag of microwave popcorn, the Full Moon declares the culmination of a recent domestic arc. There’s not much more to be done other than to watch your plans for your home and family come to fruition. Release the steam and bask in what you have achieved. It is significant (and tasty). Be patient and continue to allow time for your cherished personal vision to fully manifest. Creative career aspirations stir midmonth.


SAGITTARIUS

22 NOVEMBER – 21 DECEMBER

Keep a close eye on your calendar in early August, as you’re a busy bilby under the Full Moon light, hopping hither and thither around your neighbourhood and favourite online spaces. You are setting a cracking pace at work, too, and are a strong contender for employee of the month. Truth be told, though, it feels increasingly hollow as the month progresses, and – true to sign – you start dreaming of far-off places.


CAPRICORN

22 DECEMBER – 19 JANUARY

You’re a cool customer and certainly shrewd with money. This month you start to see how all the little pieces could potentially fit together. You love a definitive pathway forward, even if it is laced with more than a few potholes. That metaphor could also play out literally, with hiccups to your travel plans, so don’t skimp on the insurance. Children could come cap-in-hand to the parental bank around the New Moon.


AQUARIUS

20 JANUARY – 18 FEBRUARY

The Full Moon gives you licence for a rare PDE (public display of emotion). Don’t worry, it’ll blow over in a jiffy. The planets are currently stacked in your western hemisphere, meaning life is all about other people – their feelings, their money, what they want from you. This isn’t a bad thing as, through these encounters, you may inadvertently discover what you want for yourself. Mercury retrograde suggests it may be a refund. A vibrant new cycle begins in your relationship sector around the New Moon, promising renewed partnership energy whether you are a single or coupled Aquarian.


PISCES

19 FEBRUARY - 20 MARCH

A strategic absence from the social scene around the Full Moon will not only make hearts grow fonder, it will also help you get stuff done. Your to-do list looks rather chockers. You could discover an amazing organisational app or productivity hack mid-month to help you wrangle all the amazing activities you have afoot. Ask yourself, though, who are you really serving with all these acts of service?


ARIES

21 MARCH - 20 APRIL

August promises all kinds of fun and frivolity, thanks to the first stirrings of Spring, the Full Moon in your friendship sector, and your boss planet Mars getting a high five from Jupiter in your cash sector. Your uncanny ability to spot a bargain or lucrative business opportunity - especially online - continues to mid-month.


TAURUS

21 APRIL - 20 MAY

Whatever has had you feeling like pushing the proverbial uphill in recent weeks is where you will have your greatest breakthrough. While the Full Moon has you shining at work, it’s your private life that truly holds your attention. By mid month, everything changes as planet Venus begins a fresh cycle. With some key changes, you regain your rightful status as the sovereign of your home, family, and inner happy place.


GEMINI

21 MAY - 21 JUNE

Give your mind a well-deserved break and heed the call to adventure around the Full Moon. Your boss might not be too happy about it, but you need some quiet time with yourself. Quirky luxury is your best bet for a truly enriching experience that cracks open previously locked intellectual treasures. As the month progresses, trickster Mercury slows down for the retrograde cycle, which could see misunderstandings escalate into arguments at home or with family.


CANCER

22 JUNE – 22 JULY

Yay. Your annual angst-ridden Full Moon has you worrying about a taxation audit and the lifespan of your retirement savings. You flirt with the idea of escaping from these fiscal phantoms by booking a one-way flight to somewhere fabulous; however, logic gets in the way of this otherwise perfect plan. The New Moon looks promising for a collaborative income stream, and you could find yourself with an at-home business emerging at month’s end.
