Your Sun, Moon and Rising Signs

For the time period beginning July 23, 2019 until August 23, 2019

Leo, happy birthday to you, dear friends! Your physical energy is heightened this month and you make good use of it! You find yourself in several unusual situations, and facing sudden changes of pace at work. Called to take decisive action wherever you find yourself, there really is no set pattern to your days. Stop trying to adjust to your new life because it’s not settling down any time soon. Getting enough sleep is important right now.

Virgo, you’re enjoying being out of your usual routine and a little hidden away from it all. Don’t try to push forward with any new plans or major decisions in August. Relax – September will be busy enough! It’s also your month for a financial review. Is there a deficit in the budget due to something you didn’t plan for or no-one saw coming? Not to worry too much, you’ll find a way to balance the books and will learn something important in the process!

Libra, creativity and hobbies continue to bring you much pleasure this month as you focus on learning, teaching, or both. There’s also a short trip on the cards involving pleasure. Money is a nagging theme that won’t go away – but there’s no immediate solution in sight. After August 22nd, there’s a shift towards life’s more practical things.

Scorpio, you’re overcoming some major challenges at the moment as you push yourself to achieve your goals. Your physical body is taking some strain but you compensate for it with your steadfast focus and steely determination. Keep close to home and family this month, taking a moment each day to be grateful for where you’ve come from and what you’ve received.

Sagittarius, good fortune continues to smile on you! While things slow down a little financially you may nevertheless be given opportunities to make money, especially between August 7 and 23 – take them! If you have children, they welcome your attention, and you find yourself enjoying the time spent with them. Things put on the back burner in April come to the fore again in the second part of the month. Perhaps it’s your search for a deeper way of being.

Capricorn, make that checkup early on this month and attend to whatever’s been niggling at you for a while. It’s also a wonderful time to start exercising or to get back into your routine. Things have a way of escalating if you leave them too long so don’t neglect your health at the expense of your responsibilities to others. On the positive side, you’re really making progress with your long-term goals – keep at it, you’re amazing!

Aquarius, it’s your time to waltz with your partner… even though they tread on your toes! August sees you spending more time than usual with your significant other – be that personal or business – and trying to figure out the complexity of getting along while coping with the daily grind. And if you’re single, you may find this a good month to celebrate your status. All that glitters is not gold. Be open to receive insight into your true motivations around the Full Moon on August 15.

Pisces, obfuscation of some sort is being used by your partner to hide the truth of his or her financial dealings – take note. Once duly noted, you are entitled to have some fun this month. If you choose to turn a blind eye to whatever’s going on, the Full Moon on August 15 will bring it once again to your attention. You’re learning to discriminate what’s true from what’s not. Trust your gut; it never lies.

Aries, higher learning and educational enrichment are high on the cards this month as you find yourself drawn once again to study and travel. Your body feels healthy and energized and there’s much you can accomplish right now. Work on healing your past wounds through helping others to do the same – it’s what you’re here for, after all.

Taurus, your career is in the spotlight this month. It feels as if things you thought were immutable are suddenly up in the air. There is some self-sabotaging behavior that you have to acknowledge now in order to move forward. Idealistic dreaming about a Manhattan penthouse or a Malibu beach pad will not pay the rent. You want the finer things in life but more importantly you want security. What are you prepared to change in your behavior in order to receive it?

Gemini, while you feel like hiding under the covers with a good book or two, this is your month to move forward toward making your hopes a reality. Run things by your friends and listen carefully to their advice. Remember, qui n’avance pas, recule (‘If you don’t move forward, you’ll recede’). On August 23 at the 3rd quarter Moon, be ready for action.

Cancer, you may be feeling a little confined as July draws to a close, or else you’re on a voluntary withdrawal from the usual hustle and bustle of life. Whether in the attic or practicing vipassana, make a conscious effort to open yourself to the pleasures that life has to offer. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it only takes a moment to be there and take it in. Love is nearer than you think.

I always thought I should be treated like a star.” –Madonna, Leo
