Hello Aquarius! Romantic relationships will have you in a spin in August, as those two feisty fireballs, Mars and the Sun, meet up in your house of partners! Their connection peaked at the end of July, so the chances are, anything which needed to be said was expressed then in a forthright and assertive way. However, the conjunction will linger until the 15th of this month, and in that time you will find lots of residue resentment still seeping in to your interactions. On a slightly more positive note, a solar eclipse on the 21st will permeate this part of your world with fresh start energy, and this is a fantastic time for building bridges and starting again. If you are still hoping for that soul mate connection, destiny will be much more active now in helping you achieve your dream; with Uranus also in trine with the Moon during this period, declarations of affection may come suddenly and from the most unexpected of people!
With Venus prettying up your work area for the days up to the 26th, the atmosphere in your working environment should be fairly co-operative, with everyone getting along nicely. It will be harder for you to focus now in places which are dirty, noisy or angry; you need at least one quiet corner to gather your thoughts. Venus and Neptune form a creative connection between the 10th and 20th, which is sure to create opportunities to make extra money through artistic ventures. This aspect is particularly favourable for creative writing and story-telling; work with children is also well-starred. There may be some health concerns for you at certain periods of the month. Venus’s square with Jupiter from the 12th to 23rd signifies issues with digestion and diet, you need to watch your blood sugar and hormone levels too. Uranus sticks an oar in between the 20th and 26th, a time when nervous exhaustion and problems with your ankles, knees or hands could get the better of you.
The lunar eclipse of the 7th is a highly important event in the Moon’s calendar and especially poignant for water-carriers, as it takes place in your sign. It marks the end of a significant period in your personal life, as you recognise that change must come and can no longer be put off. You may find a strong urge to alter your dietary habits or fitness levels now, as feeling under the weather finally begins to take its toll. It’s also a good time to work on your fears and worries so that you can become stronger and go for what you want without feeling that you don’t deserve a better life. Aquarians with a birthday around the 10th to 17th of February will also feel the effects of the south node on your natal Sun throughout the month, and the need to push yourself out of that comfort zone will take you into many challenging situations.
Jupiter is busy in your house of travel and education in August, and the world will be a wonderful place of interesting people and situations. Broadening your horizons is essential now, you need to be learning, seeing and doing more. You might decide to teach others or become involved in some kind of training, as your knowledge searches for an outlet. Jupiter and the Sun in sextile from the 6th to 17th could send you love on a holiday, or through a religious or psychic group. With the Sun and north node in conjunction, these meetings will feel powerful and there is much to learn from one another. Have a fabulous August!
