Underneath a cool, controlled exterior beats the heart of the deeply intense Scorpio sign. The main keywords of this sign are “Penetrating”, “Determined” and “Passionate”; this sign will investigate until they get to the truth. Even though the Scorpio may not show emotions or speak volumes, be rest assured that there is a huge amount of activity occurring beneath the surface. The natives of Scorpio are great leaders and they are always aware. This sign is the best when we are talking about resourcefulness.

Quietly play it smart and see if luck doesn't break your way when the Moon trines Pluto on August 6. Work may feel a lot more like fun under the New Moon of August 14. Resolve to let the feeling last for the next month. Let people respect you more. Stand up straight and be willing to be more of a manager. Indulge that creative streak and have some serious fun at the August 29 Full Moon. Don't judge something as done well or badly, but love all you do because it's yours and yours alone. Your friends will encourage you.
Love - Romantic
Though Scorpios can be famously close to the vest in matters of the heart, sometimes it's best to talk it out. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th give you an opportunity to check in with your partner, or have a longer talk about necessary relationship goals. Where are you headed together? Do you share the same goals in love? Is it time to deepen your commitment to one another? These sorts of questions need exploring now, even if they're scary to talk about. When the 6th and 7th come around, one or the other of you may be feeling a little stuck or stifled. Again, try to come to a solution together. This month is all about opening up the lines of communication and trying to find ways around personal problems as a couple. Single Scorpios have a chance to make some new resolutions in romance around the 13th and 14th, when astrological influences encourage you to share more of yourself on dates. Don't be afraid to talk about what's important to you now. It doesn't have to be weird or scary, but may end up sorting out the real possibilities from the pretenders, and save you a ton of time. You'll be thankful you took this approach.
Business - Money
In August, push ahead and make progress. On the 3rd to the 6th something that has taken time to boil comes to the surface. The good news is that it offers meaning to something outstanding for a long time. Yes, I did say good news. And don't doubt the choices you made at the time. Most were correct and you can repair the few that weren't. The 11th begins a one-year period to express your creative flair to its fullest. Even if creativity isn't your field, most upper management puts it as one of the top five skills they value. Write down every idea, no matter how bizarre. Your expertise is in your profound insights. You notice everything while most people do not. It is also a bit about spotting the chattering company 'mole.' Don't let it be you when management uncovers him or her. Luck smiles on the 20th and 21st. If job-hunting, check opportunities and send resumes. Don't forget friends in business. It is a good time to network. You end the month with confidence, high flying spirits, and progress. In September you enter a time when planning the ways and means to increase financial security are beneficial.
