August 10 opens the work week with your instincts in high gear. No one is going to be able to fool you about anything. At the New Moon on August 14, be lucky in all the material ways that may have eluded you recently. If money doesn't increase, you can find ways to need less and still acquire more of what you love. Wanderlust or some other craving for spiritual adventure could strike your fancy around the August 29 Full Moon. Satisfy your taste for something more exotic or enlightened and then love your own home and cozy world all the more.
Love - Romantic
Though your sign is known for its sensitivity, you may find that during the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, you're feeling spunkier than usual. The plans you've been making finally have the astrological support to move forward. But two additional aspects around this time support speaking your mind in relationships, and enjoying lots of luck in love. Partnered Cancerians may find that the things they were afraid to talk about are received really well now, so speak your mind! You'll be loved and adored for it. By the 6th, 7th, and 8th, you're already making new plans as you canoodle under the stars. However, make sure you're telling all of the truth. On the 12th and 13th, you may hear something that's a little too good to be true - because it probably is. Single Cancer natives especially need to be careful that they're not buying into someone who's all hot air. Spend some more time together before deciding whether or not this is something for you. The 19th and 20th bring affection that seems to come out of nowhere. Be playful with it; you may even wish to send your beloved a surprise gift now. The 29th closes the cycle and begins a new one. Look how far you've come together!
Business - Money
In August, while you've got dynamic momentum going, you have opportunities to go back and have a go at something again. The recommended number of times to give it a go (for example, after a job interview and promised call) would be three - with each contact a polite, professional asking of where you stand. If people try to hurry you through decisions from the 6th to 8th don't cave in if you aren't sure. You need time to sift through facts and make tactical choices and you have the right to ask for it. Some of that key data arrives to help on the 11th. Your lucky days this month are on the 10th and 11th. If job hunting look for opportunities, send resumes, ask for and receive favors, and not in a roundabout way. You know what they say about people assuming. The 20th is like a bonus lucky day when right moves in the right place come spontaneously. Relax and feel that natural flow of positive energy. On the 26th through the end of the month, the door is open for happy encounters. Find more ways to communicate and you could hear excellent news. The first half of September, opportunity knocks loud and clear.
