Happy Samhain and Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio!
Here are horoscopes for the month of August 2019! I wanted to offer this as a small gift during these amazing times and as a fun intro to an e-zine that I intend to present for the New Year beginning this Winter Solstice. The e-zine will be available to paid subscribers and will include new and full moon reports, major transits in relation to world events and in-depth horoscopes for the signs. It will also include topics related to astrology, health and healing combined in a way that you are unlikely to find anywhere else. A link to subscribe will soon be provided.
I will still be uploading blog reports as I’ve done for several years but the e-zine (basically an extended newsletter, which takes far too much time and energy for me to give away for free) will contain a lot more info. Thanks for your interest and support!
Remember to check out the horoscopes for your Rising and Moon signs too!
This is a super active month for you! It seems like all of the sudden there is a lot of excitement in your love life or your social spheres. You may feel more creatively inspired than you have been in a while, and beginning to regain some of the energy you felt you had lost over the past few weeks. The stuck becomes unstuck. Because it’s like a dam just got released you may experience an abundance of new ideas and lots of conversation. As a result you may have the temptation to overdo it in some area and experience mental exhaustion. Just don’t let yourself get overwhelmed with your options. Where you saw no options you now see a hundred! The flower essence I recommend for Aries this month is Iris, for a full expression of the “multi-dimensional” self, giving yourself plenty of outlets for creative expression and increasing the flow of synchronicity in your life.
Taurus, you are gathering your forces right now and preparing for some big changes in your life, most likely having to do with your career. At the same time, you may be a domestic mood, focused either on making your home more of a comfortable sanctuary or connecting with close loved ones and family who can celebrate with you the changes that you see taking place. During the middle of the month you may feel torn between your desire to socialize and to stay inside and nurture time alone. You could feel extra sensitive or spacey, or perhaps creatively inspired. Your dreams, both at night time and day dreams are very heightened. This is a time to dream big and ponder what’s possible, maybe even make a vision board of some kind. Flower essence for Taurus this month is Wild Oat, to help refine and clarify your sense of direction and purpose in the weeks and months ahead.
This is an optimistic month for you Geminis. You may feel more validated than you have in a while – by friends, family and perhaps even new friends and acquaintances. Your mind is also feeling a bit more free and expansive than it’s been, especially for those of you who have been working very hard this year. Finally a breath of fresh air helps you clear your lungs and mind. Give yourself a gift or go on a vacation. Many of you will greatly benefit from travel or you may have unexpected visitors. You may also receive an offer this month that you feel conflicted about accepting. Trust your gut on this. Either it will further distract you or compliment your work. The flower essence I suggest this month for Gemini is Star Tulip, which is for sensing and drawing to you the protection and guidance of your higher self and spiritual benefactors, especially when you are going through a major life shift.
Cancer, the highlight for you is in the area of your finances. If you have been determined to overcome obstacles become more effective overall you are finally beginning to see the rewards for your efforts this past year with more money coming in! Your next task is to compartmentalize and manage it all. You may seek an the advice of an expert in some field to help you navigate to the next level in your field of interest or work. Trust what your intuition is saying about someone close to you as well. Maybe they need help, or maybe they are able to help you in some way. A male figure is prominent for you now, but it’s as though he is leaving the scene. He is going somewhere, taking something with him. Flower essence for you this month is Calendula, for fostering the mindset of abundance and supporting clear, kind communications.
This is your month to shine bright! Things are really changing for the better in your world and it has been a long time coming. Lady luck and the heavenly host are on your side helping you to manifest your heart’s desires. If you don’t see this happening then it could be time to ponder what you really want and what has been blocking your attainments. Maybe you need to weed out some things before you see real progress. Money, romance, and good fortune in general increases later this month. Very strong masculine energy is present in your life right now. Either you are taking your power back as a man, or as a woman maybe taking it back from a man and reclaiming your own masculinity. The flower essence I recommended for you this month is Sunflower! This flower helps you to express your unique beauty and power in the world.
It may seem like you are at a crossroads through the first half of the month, as though you have some very important choices to make revolving around finances, career or a project you have been involved in. Your heart is also healing from some of the hurts you’ve carried around for awhile. You may feel a growing sense of enthusiasm later this month when the Sun, Mars and Venus move into your sign and form a special stellium. It’s as though know something significant is coming but not sure exactly what that is yet. I am guessing that you will have more than one cause to celebrate, including your birthday coming up of course. The Sacred Feminine is a strong theme for you this month, highlighting your relationship to her in whatever form that takes. Flower essence of Zinnia, for bringing playfulness, joy and laughter in your life, highlighting the good things you have and the good things to come.
Libra, your popularity is increasing and many of your long-held hopes and wishes are coming true! That being said, you may wonder why it is such a bitter-sweet time for you, and why you may be struggling to keep a positive outlook. For one thing, it has dawned on you lately that some people are not happy about your success but prefer to see you as you once were. Maybe certain people just can’t see you for who you are at all. Do you feel underestimated? Also, are you finally tired of allowing yourself to be used? That’s a good sign! Roll with the new you and stop being such an apologist for things that aren’t your fault – oh yeah, especially in your family. Hang out more with folks who “get you”. You are very gifted but it’s up to you to receive the gifts the Universe is offering you now. The essence I recommend for you is Goldenrod, to support your blossoming sense of self-esteem.
There is a huge spotlight in your outer social life as well as lots of goings-on in your inner circle or home life. You may have been multi-tasking lately and feeling like your energy has been tugged in several different directions. It is time to pull back inward and take care of yourself. You deserve it! A relationship that has been on your mind with a question mark attached to it is beginning to clarify which helps you move forward. Things will really begin to lighten up for you later on this month. You may be facing a lot of old fears related to things you thought you would never be able to face or overcome. And guess what, you’re doing what you once thought was impossible! Consider giving yourself a spa day or special treatment. The flower essence I recommend for you this month is Red Chestnut to help you release your worries about other people that you care for and focus more on yourself.
This is a month of golden opportunities for you! Jupiter is again moving forward in your sign on the 11th, and you will find it easier to move ahead with things you have had to put on the back burner for awhile. You are also invited to do one of the things that you absolutely love best, which is to travel, at least mentally or close to home. In any case, adventure is likely to spice up your life and possibly even your career. You might also be thinking of starting up a new business or asking for a raise in your current job. You’re right that something big is coming and it’s time to step up to the plate. There is a lot of discussion about commitment in a close relationship. Either it’s time to make or break that bond. If you choose to bond, stop procrastinating and just dive in! The flower essence I recommend for you this month is Thyme, for catching up for “lost time” or creating more of it where it seems to be lacking.
Man, the things you’ve been dealing with lately…but you’re so good at dealing with things other signs can’t or don’t. This month, get ready for welcome shift of focus or a sweet surprise when it comes to money and possessions. You’ll also probably notice more support from others. It is very possible that you will see a chunk of money either owed to you finally being paid off, or that you will find something else of valuable where you least expect it and it turns out to be just what you need. Many of you have been experiencing a lot of heightened emotions over the past couple of years as there is a culmination of some major event or relationship taking place. It is important to heal from the wounds of the past in order to move forward, especially wounds related to men or a man in your life. The flower essence I recommend for you this month is Walnut, for emotionally supporting you during major life transitions.
Exciting time for you Aquarians! Many of you folks have made a remarkable shift during the past couple of years and your transformation is an inspiration to those around you. This month you are focused on bringing your ideas, gifts and wisdom to others in new ways, sharing what you have learned or attained with the world. If this isn’t obvious or evident to you yet then it could be time to take inventory of how far you’ve come and just how much you have accomplished. The one warning I would give is to not spread yourself too thin in your social life (hard for most air signs!)You are juggling a lot right now but it’s okay to take timeouts when you need to, to hear yourself think versus what your friends are saying. Being rebellious is sometimes your great virtue. The flower essence I recommend to you this August is White Chestnut to help quiet your mind and keep you focused or get some better sleep.
Pisces, this month for you is centered around your work, health and your overall sense of purpose. Do you feel aligned with your work and surroundings at this time? If so then you are in the perfect space for great things that will begin to manifest themselves later this month and into the next month. Your spirits might be high lately because something or someone has brought new cheer into your life. Positive energy is available to help you manifest. If your space feels cramped or un-supportive it’s time to make changes or get the heck out of there. You may have been too hard on yourself and afraid to ask anyone for help because you hate to bother them. You are worthy of seeing your dreams come true and it’s time to take action toward making them happen. By month’s end I see you charging ahead with quite an unusual ferocity! The flower essence I see for you this month is Poppy, for spiritual clarity and support from hidden realms.
