Allie The Astrologer's Horoscopes for Luna Enchanted

August  2019 Horoscopes:
When looking at horoscopes in newspapers and magazines, people typically only look at their Sun sign. For those of us in the field of astrology, we know there is a lot more to each individual person than just that, we are all a combination of all twelve astrological signs that each manifest for the individual person in specific and very unique ways. I personally find that by looking at the horoscopes of my Moon (our emotional selves) and Rising (aka Ascendant, us at first glance through first impressions as well as physical appearance) signs, not just the Sun (our ego, who we are at the core); everything makes even more sense because we see how the puzzle pieces of who we are fit together. In terms of romance, even looking at your Venus (the planet of love and money) and Mars (our physical drives) signs makes a world of difference.

August will bring us a bit of relief, hooray! And while Jupiter goes direct after a 4 month retrograde on the 11th, Uranus in Taurus stations retro on the very same day.
The planet Uranus represents our desire to be free, express ourselves in an unapologetic way and beat to your own drum. However, while Uranus retrograde will show us the strong desire to become 'unstuck'; you have to retrace your steps now in order to devise a plan that will work this time. By weighing what has helped and what hasn't in order to get closer to what you desire to accomplish, and by spending more time to plan and process a solid road map to get there will be what gets you to your destination.
Uranus and Taurus are not energies known to get along very well together, but if you ask me, that's a little different when Uranus retrograde rolls around! Taurus will be able to hand over some patience and impulse control over to gung-ho Uranus during this time period and it can all work to our advantage. So although Taurus moves a little to slow for Uranus' liking, the tortoise wins the race through a level headed demeanor and strategic forethought in the end... not the impulsive and rash hare, remember?

The Full Moon for this month falls on the 15th in the sign of Aquarius. Opposing Venus and Mars in Leo, while Venus forms a quincunx to Pluto in Capricorn can indicate working through a bit of trouble in paradise. We may feel a strong need for validation and affection but can be driven to go about it in what's probably the least conducive. Taking a more directly honest and rational approach to express your wants and desires can prevent disputes and hurt feelings, even if you're feeling moody it's important to keep it as Zen as possible. Triggers relating to feelings of powerlessness and not having control can leave us feeling neurotic and obsessive. This can be quite challenging for sure, but try your best to ground yourself as needed.

As far as the New Moon falling on August 30th in Virgo, a conjunction being made to Mars (in Virgo) will help to boost our confidence levels, in which having a surplus of energy can drive us to transform what we wish to our advantage (a great tool in manifesting what we want)! Also trine Uranus (in Taurus), this New Moon grants us more creativity to use in our ways of expression as well as the ability to remain open and accepting of new positive changes in our own lives. We get to take this opportunity by being able to gently explore the outer layers of our comfort zones and even crossing over with confidence into true inner growth.
Aries (March 20 – April 19): Extra money is likely to come your way during August unexpectedly Aries, but not without doing some work for it. Nevertheless, it can definitely pull some weight of worry from your shoulders and provide some much needed relief. Hard work is going to pay off and those people you are surrounded with will see this clearly. Take pride in your ability to get the job done.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Taurus, this is a good time for you to reevaluate the company you've been surrounding yourself with. You may keep on wanting to see (or flat out only see) the good characteristics, but the truth is that while appreciating that which is only positive; ignoring the flip side can be extremely detrimental to the mental and emotional well being of both yourself and loved ones. Even if you don't see it currently, truly take a moment to look at the overall picture here.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Gemini, August is a month that will bring valuable learning experiences dealing with themes surrounding accountability and self respect. The most important thing you can do is observe, instead of reacting outwardly out of primal instincts as this scenario can provoke you in some sensitive areas. Not everything deserves a response, and you will see that picking your battles will help you to sleep much better at night.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): August is a crucial month which provides chances to remind you that your longing for feeling secure is always in arms reach, no matter how crazy life may get. It's pretty typical to worry about interrupted progress when disruptive thoughts get in the way, clouding one's judgment. However, these phases do pass and you'll continue to remember what the reality is versus subconscious (and false) fears are trying to convince you of.

Leo (July 23 – August 22): It's extremely wise to get your ducks in a row this month, Leo. You've been toying with new ideas for projects through tiny fleeting inspirational bursts, yet they haven't seemed to get further than that. With Uranus retrograde moving through your public and career areas, now is the time to make shit happen. Get more serious about it if you want to see real changes occur for the better.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Towards the end of August, your energy levels will sky rocket for sure, Virgo. You'll be dealing with a large amount of planetary activity personally and it's vital to expend the energy and refrain from bottling it up. Healthy methods of releasing this influx through trying something you never have before will be a thrilling and invigorating adventure that you've needed for a while now.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): Listen to what signs are coming your way during this month, Libra. If you notice you're having vivid dreams, write them down. Any animal/insect totems, repeating number sequences, feathers and such are important to make mental note of as well. You'll be seeking an important answer lately and it's going to come to you, so long as you continue to pay attention to the synchronicity occurring around you.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): When it comes to your love life, are you isolating to 'save face'? Wearing a mask to hide your vulnerable side doesn't last forever Scorpio. It's time to talk about what is causing you pain and how it makes you truly feel. Avoiding an issue won't ever make it go away, so take the initiative in pulling the band aid off of the wound and beginning to allow real healing and resolution to take place.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Sagittarius, you'll find yourself looking more into holistic health treatments and approaches as you crave a different route, but follow your hunches before jumping on the latest craze. Along the way it's possible to encounter a 'snake oil salesman' so stay on top of educating yourself using appropriate sources. Feeling this momentum, this will also be an ideal time to adjust some lifestyle habits, such as adding exercise to weekly routines, or even working to decrease or cease a not so great habit.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Miscommunication and not quite understanding others' explanations of things may happen often over these next few weeks for you. Stop over analyzing everything and relax a bit, Capricorn. Perhaps the mental fatigue is a signal to slow yourself down a bit, and take a break from continually pushing yourself past the limit. It could also indicate a cue to work on doing better when it comes to giving your loved ones some active listening opposed to becoming immediately dismissive.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Lately Aquarius, you'll be experiencing an increase in social connections, in which you'll find leads to chance opportunities for you (seemingly out of the blue). Think twice before getting swept away on impulse by remembering the saying 'if it seems too good to be true, it probably is'. Take an honest, realistic look at the pros and cons and think it through before going forward with your decision. If this door doesn't fully open, there is a reason why. So trust that better things are coming your way.

Pisces (February 19 – March 19): Watch your tongue as anger seems to be rising up and out of you this month from feeling moody and irritated. There is a likelihood to burn bridges as a consequence of these outbursts, which can be good in terms of clearing the BS out of your life that doesn't add positivity. But it can also do some damage when it comes to pushing wonderful people away that you care deeply about. Channel your feelings of aggression and anger into productive outlets that are harmless yet effective such as creative activities and hobbies.
