ARIES: You are getting more and more focused on your personal self expression, or choosing a love relationship over your crew. The 17th – 21st are very revealing of the direction you should be heading over the next year. Developments augment your long range objectives, and are positively influenced by your own motivation to autonomy and independence. A newly emerging maturity intermingles with your innovative temperament to marvelous effect right now. An unsettling dynamic affecting your relationship/career, unresolved since late last year comes up again around the 4th. You can free yourself of this problem once and for all if you remain diplomatic. Very encouraging vibrations on the 20th enhance love within a partnership. Time to take it to the next level? The 27th is very auspicious for a long term commitment.
TAURUS: Huge culminations this month both professionally and with your residence or family are due, many of the events that unfold now are the result of work or decisions that have been going on behind the scenes since at least February, if not for years. The whole month is ripe with activity, but the exact eclipses affecting your home (Aug. 7th) and profession (Aug. 21) will set the precise turning points. You may suddenly decide to change locale and reboot in a new state or even country. This place calls you, though it might take until September to shake out all the details. Extraordinary developments 10th, 13th, 20 – 22, and the 27th all signal very positive developments. A new job may play a role in the success you have now, and you should expect the very best, even if totally unexpectedly, during this incredible period.
GEMINI: This will be a pivotal month for partnerships and relationships as you see the door closing on affiliations with people you have outgrown or through the culmination of your own academic goals. You are making space for your day to day life and keeping your range of activity closer to home. This could be a prolific period for writing or creating a new web series or podcast. You’ll likely work with people in your neighborhood, or even with a sibling on this project. The whole month is very favorable (with the dates of the 10th, 13th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd being *exceptional*) and you may find around the end of the month things really click in a partnership. You may even find that someone who had seemed problematic or difficult in the past turns out to be a great ally, and really helps you achieve your own cherished desires. Who knew?
CANCER: Your financial world gets rocked as one source of income, most likely tied to your spouse or a lender, comes to an end and a new order of personal income opens up in it’s place. If you have successfully followed the cues that were stimulated in February you get a huge boost now. It’s also possible you have managed to clear up a debt or other obligation that allows you to access or keep more of your own earnings. Compelling developments on the 7th and 21st speak to this, although very significant opportunities and insights around the 17th and 28th also highlight what is to be. Venus in your sign from the 1st generates a positive ambience for pleasure and romance, and you can put it all on the line in the name of love on the 12th. A turning point on the 15th intensifies your commitment. Time to decide if you are in or out on this crucial date. Great prospects for your profession and income arise on the 13th, 20th, 21st, 22nd and 27th. Use these to schedule your important meetings and to launch your initiatives. You continue to benefit from innovation and adhering to a strong work ethic. Go for it.
LEO: Big changes are percolating this month with Eclipses on the 7th and 21st opening the doors to endings and beginnings. Relationships have a fated quality to them, and developments are very auspicious as lucky and beneficial Jupiter harmonizes the Aquarius (partnerships) eclipse on the 7th. Your personal development is highlighted, and much if this you have to do on your own, however. All parts of your life are highlighted though and extend from this incredible burst of energy, a great feeling of manifestation seems to flow from you at this time and especially around the 21st. This is a great time to plan a wedding or vacation with your spouse. Financial loose ends need to get tied up, as Mercury retrogrades from the 13th – September 5th. You may be collecting payments owed to you or negotiating paperwork tied to a mortgage, settlement or loan. Evasive Neptune muddles proceedings mid month. Wait for early September to seal the deal.
VIRGO: Eclipses signal changes in your work – life balance, with very positive breakthroughs in this period if you take some time away from a hectic work load or schedule and book some personal time. Very beguiling conditions around a relationship from the 7th – 19th can see you reaching for an elusive or mysterious lover. You’ll need some times to think things through, though. Wait till later in September to put those feelings into words. The 17th and 28th offer some incredibly revealing insights regarding your inner workings. A romantic getaway can provide a nice outlet on the 12th. Friends and recreation can also be favorable, though tensions on the 15th and 24th can put you at odds with your crew or clique. The 20th, 26th and 27th are all very favorable for attending for domestic, family or residential matters. You may get assistance, financial or otherwise from behind the scenes.
LIBRA: You continue to reach new heights, and may receive incredible assistance to reach your goals. Your reputation can really escalate at this time and this is a favorable period in which to promote your talents and public profile. Those in artistic professions can really shine on the 12th, as very inspirational and creative vibes are present. A group enterprise that may have started percolating in February really begins to take off in this phase as well, with a great deal coming together swiftly around the time of the eclipse on the 21st. You have to take this one a little slow, as Mercury retro seems to stall your progress through the beginning of next month. You may also get sudden news about a pregnancy, or a romance could heat up quite quickly as well around the time of the eclipse on the 7th. A friend or social event could provide a launch pad for a chance encounter that sets your heart on fire.
SCORPIO: You may be saying farewell to a home or place, while your inner most private life is affected positively by the eclipse on the 7th. You reconcile a very personal challenge to your satisfaction early in the month. Romantic passions are aroused mid month, are you in or out? A second eclipse on the 21st is very powerful and continues to move you up the ladder of success. Your greatest ambitions are implicated. Events around the 17th are stunning. The 20th, 22nd and 27th all bode well for long sought financial security, and it’s likely a position you hold in this period allows for such a development. There will be hard working and unexpected moments this month, but the trip you are on is nothing less than completely exhilarating. Ride it for all it is worth, this is genuinely a once in a lifetime moment for you professionally.
SAGITTARIUS: You’ll be at your best this month if you are traveling or having an adventure of some kind, as there are incredible auspices for a very enjoyable journey, especially around the 20th and 21st. An eclipse in Leo on the 21st in particular can bring up an exciting opportunity and you may be invited to present your creative work abroad. Relations and intimacy continue to develop this month. Love is teaching you to trust and create security. Money or resources through your spouse or within a shared equity situation can be available. The 15th and 24th could be challenging in this regard, as it’s hard to see eye to eye or reach an agreement. Mercury retro impacts you professionally. You may find a negotiation stalls or that an enterprise requires reconfiguration before it can move forward.
CAPRICORN: Money and resources come into sharp focus this month with two eclipses opening and closing doors on the financial fronts. All bets should be on developing your intimate and financial partnerships, as the opportunities now reside through collaboration with another to build security through this collaboration. Combining forces will enable you to thrive both personally and together, so the person you choose for this journey needs to be someone you trust and genuine want to see grow with you. Select the 20th – 22nd for your most important meetings and discussions (but wait until September 5 to seal the deal, as Mercury is retrograde!). Very positive professional opportunities emerge around the 27th, though you might be working behind the scenes on this one. This is a great period of self discovery and intuition. You can gaze deeply into your deepest desires and manifest them now.
AQUARIUS: This one is really the big kahuna, as eclipses on the 7th and 21st rock your axis of identity and partnerships, generating a remarkable ambience for fated meetings and developments. The 10th, 13th, 20th, 22nd and 27th are all ideal for making a long range commitment in a relationship that has gone the duration and ready to move into the next stage of evolution. Someone could enter your orbit on the 17th or 28th that changes the direction of your life significantly. Secret motivations and hindrances from the past will provide some turning points, you may need to resolve an outstanding issue as old challenges on the 4th and 15th resurface. A shared financial matter (loans, alimony payments or a spouses’ income) require reappraisal as Mercury retrogrades on the 13th. You get a better sense of where the money is coming from (or how to get it) on the 26th.
PISCES: A new job or assignment comes in, totally rocking your world and helping you ascend towards a long range professional goal around the 21st. Financial matters can improve quickly as a result of this. The 13th and 22nd are very powerful for reaching your destination. You find the strength to release the past in this cycle, equally debilitating habits or addiction can be relinquished. This will happen quietly and privately, behind the scenes. Venus moves into the pleasure zone and there can be some amazing moments with a loved one, or through a creative activity. The 12th is one of the most romantic dates of the entire year, make the most of it! Some challenges to your agenda may arise on the 15th and 24th. The 17th signals a desire to go overboard, easy does it. Mercury retro from the 13th can bring a prior association back into your orbit, but watch this tricky phase, nothing is what it seems.
