August 6 could be a surprisingly good day at work, but there's the risk of picking a fight later at home. Temper, temper! It's possible to have too much fun around the New Moon on August 14, so pace yourself. Sweetness and luxury are more appealing than wildness, so unless you overspend, you should be fine. Give your heart its desire for a few days. The Full Moon on August 29 could be full of crazy dreams and impossible aspirations. Enjoy the lofty feelings. You won't neglect your daily stuff, and perhaps a sweet fantasy will brighten your mood.
Love - Romantic
For Aries natives, August begins with a bang, as plans you've been making begin to solidify in your love life. On the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, communication may take a turn for the quirky. Luckily, you make each other laugh, whether you've been together for two days or twelve years. Affection is growing between you every day, for those who are partnered. For singles, the 4th and 5th are great days to get yourself out there a little more, or deepen your connection with someone you like. By the 7th and 8th, you're ready to take your communication to another level. While you may want to have "the talk" around this time, if you're not ready, that's fine, too. Just having a conversation about what's important to both of you now seals the deal. On the 12th, make sure you're seeing your partner clearly. He or she may be putting up smokescreens to avoid feeling vulnerable. You don't have to call them out, but gently reminding them that you accept them, warts and all, goes a long way. On the 14th and 15th, try to set new intentions for your next 30 days together. Do you want to become more intimate? Meet the parents? Or take a romantic weekend getaway?
Business - Money
Here's good news! You didn't throw an opportunity away. This month you have a second chance, but it requires operating with a system and a plan. Why try to do it the hard way? Your lucky day is the 4th. If job-hunting it is time to send resumes. Otherwise, it is an opportune time for decision-making when you have a number of options. Quite often no second chances are handed out, but this month the 6th and 7th are exceptions. This time don't let second thoughts inhibit taking action. Get ready to explore, endure, and undergo a major shift on the 11th when you start a new cycle and an interesting year. The 20th and 21st, be on the lookout. Something you are good at comes together with your passion (enthusiasm) and you start focusing in one direction. Between the 26th and 28th the points are really simple and you get right to them, which is the best approach. Don't press it. Prove it. People are waiting. You end the month with a lucky day on the 31st and that means you begin September with the same. Continue to make and work toward plans - and reap rewards.
