If you've been frustrated or felt stalled, the wheels will start turning again for you as Saturn goes stationary direct on August 1. Be the answer to an important person's problem around the New Moon on August 14. You'll have an elegant solution to what at first looks like a messy situation. You'll come out looking like a hero. (You are!) Friends and family are doing their best for you on the Full Moon of August 29. You may know it, but it still may be hard to feel content. Sometimes nothing can live up to expectations and hopes, and that's OK.
Love - Romantic
With your ruling planet going direct at the beginning of August, the sky's the limit for your sign this month! In matters of the heart, you're urged to open up and communicate more, especially around the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, when you and your partner may find loads to chat about. Something that's been pressing on you for some time needs to be expressed. Rather than simply blurting it out, try to take a page from Libra's book and find diplomacy. After all, no one likes being told they have spinach in their teeth. By the 7th and 8th, you're both thinking about laying a firmer foundation for your future relationship. What can you do to be more trustworthy now, or more relatable and understanding? You both have much to bring to the table. Single Caps can find hope around the 14th and 15th, when you're turning over a new leaf in love. Gone are the less than desirable types from your past. Now you're entertaining only serious contenders for your heart. Stick to your guns, and you'll get results soon. On the 29th and 30th, emotions run deep between you and a partner. Rather than blaming them for what you're going through, take some time and let any excess fear or sadness go.
Business - Money
August offers second chances and shortcuts that weren't available at the first go. You also have opportunities to build on a firmer foundation. From the 3rd to the 9th, rev up your courage and take a few strategic chances during a positive period for hopes and wishes. Around the 11th some things that were getting in the way of your progress clearly move aside and it is smoother sailing as you enter into new cycle. The 25th is your lucky day. Make a move in the right direction. If job hunting, look for opportunities and send resumes now. From the 26th to the 28th, the answer is: everyone owes everyone a favor. The question: who might be thinking you owe them one or two? Return them because givers are enriched in many ways. You too! Always remember that do-it-yourself is admirable but we shouldn't be afraid to ask for help after we've tried everything else (and you would tend to do that). Torturing yourself isn't productive. You know you have the resources and talents to return any favor. September is the continuation of restoration. Keep moving because your lowest gear is higher than most people's highest.
