Your August Horoscope for Aries
August is a big, strong month, so it will be important to be as productive as you can be, for September won’t measure up to the levels of productivity that you will find this month. The Sun is shining in Leo, a fire sign like yours, so right from the start, you’ll be humming a happy tune. With the Sun supporting Aries, the world will be in a welcoming, supportive period of several weeks.
You have been spending more money than usual due to Mars in Taurus. This is not an easy place for you to host energetic Mars, for he burns a hole in your pocket—he makes you spend. You may have anticipated the need to send out big checks, say, for a child’s camp or school tuition, plans for a home appliance, such as a new computer, smart phone, car, air conditioner, washer and drier, or vacuum cleaner as some examples.
The good news is that once Mars leaves Taurus on August 20, your expenses will drop. Mars will enter Gemini, an air sign that is so friendly to your fire-sign element. Shop for any electronic item or machine with moving parts now, as soon as possible—do not delay. I will tell you why you must act in August, not September.
Mercury is due to go retrograde in Libra next month from September 9 to October 2, but you will start to feel the slowdown earlier, the minute September begins. You must not act too close to the start and end dates of the retrograde, and that is why I would like you to act now, in August. If you need to launch a product or service, so do now.
