August 4 is busy with offers to share in the high life as Venus conjoins Jupiter in regal Leo. Big fun and energetic friends may keep you hopping during the New Moon on August 14. A secret admirer could be lurking in the shadows, too. Allow people to treat you like royalty. Take great pleasure in all the little things you do at the Full Moon on August 29. Better still, be grateful for how much is being done for you by people who appreciate you. You have great friends and family (and some strangers, too) who may not tell you so.
Love - Romantic
This month, Libra natives have a chance to show off their diplomatic skills, as well as their native charm in social situations. On the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, someone you're connected to has something important to say about your relationship. Before you buy in completely, or blindly commit to this person, make sure you have all the facts. Don't be afraid to ask for more time if you need it to get to know each other better. By the 7th and 8th, things have calmed down, and you're more willing to sit down and talk about the future with your honey. Astrological aspects point to building a strong foundation together so things can last for a very long time. Putting time into those pursuits pays off eventually. On the 14th and 15th, single Librans are ready to turn over a new leaf in dating. If you're too giving at first, try establishing healthier boundaries from the get-go. If you're standoffish and hard to read, try being a little more engaging when you first meet. This is an excellent time to have a first or second date. Big, bold choices pay off. When you're both out of your element, you both win at fun.
Business - Money
August is a spectacularly exciting time because everything is possible. You have new ideas and there are new adventures to be had. Synchronously, August 6th and 7th you can expect timely but smooth endings of that which you've outgrown. This is made easier when we are more open and flexible when it comes to the fact that changes must be made and can be for the better. Wait and see! They are! August 11th and 12th is the start of a year of increased intuition that you should dare to explore and begin to trust. Steve Jobs said intuition is more powerful than intellect and you know lots of things, you just don't know you know them. Your lucky day is the 18th and if job hunting it's time to check opportunities and to send resumes in response. Got career decisions to make? On the 19th and 20th you pick the right answers. It is also an opportune time to practice using your intuition. The 27th begins a positive period of effective communication. You'll also have the benefit of cooperation, and the beginning of a time when you might want to share your visions and goals. As an example: September offers good negotiations with authority figures.
