The world might make some impossible demands of you as the August 29 Full Moon draws near. You're always ready to help, but you don't need to drown in a flood of imagined calls for heroics on your part.
Love - Romantic
Your sign is famous for its ability to bounce back from any troubles. This month, understandably one of your favorites, allows you the chance to do just that! On the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, you're finding success in love through communication. What's been lurking at the back of your mind has the chance to come forward now in the exact right way, at the exact right time. Don't be surprised if you hear something you didn't expect to hear in return. Luckily, it's all good. On the 6th and 7th, you and your partner find that you have more in common in terms of future goals than you'd previously thought. The plans you brainstorm together have a lot of power now. Put your heads together and see what you can come up with. Single Leos get some support from astrological aspects on the 12th, 13th, and 14th, when you're ready to leave behind some less than healthy ways of thinking about relationships. Now you're ready to bring in a new kind of person who's much more on your level. By the 29th and 30th, Leos of all types are ready to end one phase and begin another in love. As long as you're talking about your feelings, you can do no wrong!
Business - Money
You tap into powerful energy in August, and you perform remarkable feats if you work hard and channel it. Enter extra confidence to surmount obstacles that dare get in your way on the 8th. Your biggest challenge is sticking to tried and true methods or just sitting there and thinking: I don't see any problems. Your confidence shines through your unique ideas and solutions. The 11th begins a year-long cycle of potential increase. The 13th is your lucky day and if job hunting it is time to search and research. Send resumes when good fortune is on your side. Something brand new arrives on the 14th, and it calls for concentration and single-minded attention. The end result could be that you have the opportunity to create a few new goals or pursue a life-long dream. On the 19th your word is power and if something isn't working, put it into other words. From the 26th through the end of the month it is to your advantage to grasp chances to gain the experience that helps you decide what to do next. Learn and earn a lot. Show a dash of versatility and flexibility to adapt to September's changes.
