Events In August…

  • August 1st – Lammas Celebrations!
  • August 21 – Virgo Season begins

A Full Moon in cool, friendly Aquarius peaks on the 1st in your zone of communal causes, group work and team spirit. Touch on social developments but expect the rest of the month to see you and your talents front and centre. Leo Season wants you to shine!

With Mars in Virgo, work, health and wellbeing are a strong suit of yours in August, with lots of activity spurring on day-to-day efforts.

Yet it’s love, your passions and romance that’s most compelling. Venus Retrograde in Leo (and the North Node in your sign) wants you to figure out your own happiness and put yourself first.

Focus on number one for the win…


Home life, family, your property or where you’re from may be a hot topic this month, with the Sun and Venus touring your zone of household matters and roots. You may be navigating self-care, a way to nurture, refuel and set down permanently in situ, or maybe finding a way to tend to the people in your environment.

Welcome solitude and space away to recalibrate, taking as much time as you need to unpack what’s coming up. The north node is now in Aries and your twelfth house of retreat.

Patience is one of your many virtues, so go slow! Step onto steady ground…


Community connections, close ties and friends in your circle stand out this month, with potential complications around plans with those around you, or in a group.

Note emphasis on an important message, project and your social circle, as you gain traction with peers. Your immediate surroundings are key, and you could be thinking a lot about your environment, home life and family.

Find space to move ahead with intentions you have that bring you a sense of place and rootedness, or that connect you to parents…


Your financial position and the role you uphold is now in the spotlight, with emphasis on how you appear in the public eye, your goals, reputation and external image, or persona.

Commitments and sacred agreements are important entering the month, with a Full Moon in your house of bonds. Do take space to acknowledge relationships that have an intimate quality.

However, the stars now encourage you to cultivate independence, looking to your own capabilities first and foremost. Explore self-reliance, and expect a busy social life to continue engaging you! Make your way among friends with gusto…


The time around our birthday always nudges us centre stage and into the spotlight, however this year you may be readjusting and reviewing who you are at your core thanks to Venus Retrograde in your sign.

If you’re conflicted about your identity and how you relate to the world around you do generously pause. Reflect on what you’re looking to accomplish, what you’re keen to do and work backwards!

Take decisions slowly, really giving maximum attention to the part you play. Remember, it’s your time to shine!


Your private life, trust issues and personal passions may be cranked up a notch, with Leo Season teamed with a Venus Retrograde cycle emphasizing all that you can’t control.
