August is traditionally the “travel and vacation” month, although there are some heavy planetary hitters around that could be affecting things for those lucky enough to escape (or be stuck in) the heat of the moment. The Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter all touch on Leo (a “Fire” Sign) this month. So, they could be adding to the anticipated heat in several ways as well! Even so, for those touched by the big and heavy planetary hitters this month, it may not be all fair winds and fine sailing. The bottom line here is that there will most likely be some challenges for a number of people throughout the month. However, if you’re able to rise above it all and shine in your own light, despite everything, then you should still find that same fun and excitement that the month invariably offers!

Tips for getting that perfect, astrological, “Sun Sign tan” this month…
AUGUST 2022 Horoscope by Sign
ARIES: Ever the spontaneous one – and ever the one for striking out on your own, regardless of what naysayers say – you’ll most likely find that perfect astrological Sun Sign tan, if you can carve out some “me” time for yourself and grasp those opportunities to lead, not follow!
TAURUS: It’s not so much that you’re lazy – as you’ll almost always finish that project you’ve promised to finish – albeit eventually! But you certainly love all those creature comforts along the way. So, kick off your shoes whenever you can, and perhaps even get that red neck tan you’ve been promising yourself for some time now!
GEMINI: The heat can slow you down somewhat, but the perfect astrological tan for you will be possible whenever you can openly congregate with others and chew the fat. If the heat is too overwhelming however – maybe text everyone instead, as an alternative. Either way, I’m sure you’ll find your glow!
CANCER: Home is usually where the heart is for you. So, while the others are out sunning and enjoying themselves, you’ll most probably still find yourself stuck back in the kitchen, feeding them all or fixing the home. But, if you can talk them all into a BBQ, then perhaps you can sit in the sun, drink in hand, and get them to work the grill instead!
LEO: Home is usually where the heart is for you. So, while the others are out sunning and enjoying themselves, you’ll most probably still find yourself stuck back in the kitchen, feeding them all or fixing the home. But, if you can talk them all into a BBQ, then perhaps you can sit in the sun, drink in hand, and get them to work the grill instead!
VIRGO: Probably the hot summer months are not aways your thing. Summers on the beach for example are sweaty, sticky and accompanied with countless rough grains of sand getting everywhere you don’t want them to get! You’re probably much happier with being in the shade for much of the time – but doing so seems to get your astrological tan more perfect than ever!
LIBRA: There can be a lot of squabbling going on between friends, family and colleagues during these hot summer months. However, this should give you plenty of opportunity to shine – as you always seem to be good at patching things up between others. Definitely a great opportunity for you to both rise, and shine!
SCORPIO: There can be a lot of squabbling going on between friends, family and colleagues during these hot summer months. However, this should give you plenty of opportunity to shine – as you always seem to be good at patching things up between others. Definitely a great opportunity for you to both rise, and shine!
SAGITTARIUS: I defy anyone to try holding you back this month! Ever the adventurer, and always on the move, the summer months provide you with more than enough opportunity to spread your wings. Definitely a great time to reach out to those new horizons and bask in the sunshine of those great new opportunities that are out there!
CAPRICORN: While everyone else is out there, enjoying their moments in the sun, you’re probably the one who’s keeping things ticking over, back at the office, or in a job setting somewhere. However, little do they know that this is where your sun shines brightest. So, you could eventually have a better astrological tan than anyone, if you’re allowed to do what you do best!
AQUARIUS: I guess there’s not guessing what you’ll be up to this month. It’s unlikely that you’ll enjoy following the herd, for sure. You’re most definitely one for doing your own thing and thinking your own thoughts. So, perhaps your perfect astrological tan will be found doing our own thing in your own way – while the others remain content to cook themselves, out in the sunlight, as usual.
PISCES: Certainly, the summer freedoms of this month should give you more opportunities to follow your dream than usual. Could it be that you’ll shine in finding that perfect dream setting – or meeting that perfect dream partner? Maybe. The most important thing for you is that you’re able to escape to wherever that dream of yours is taking you. If you can, then that astrological tan of yours will certainly be better than ever!
AUGUST 2022 Horoscope featured days at a glance…
Aug 01 – Mars conjunct Uranus: If risk taking is your thing, then this is a day where caution might be a better objective. If you’re of a more sedentary, conservative nature however, it could be a day for shaking things up somewhat.
Aug 02 – Venus sextile Uranus + Venus sextile Mars: Hold onto your hat! This could be a hot day for pursuing those affairs of the heart – or meeting that eccentric stranger who has a strong attraction for you. If you’re a creative/artisitic type, a good day to start something new.
Aug 07 – Venus trine Neptune: Dream the dream! This could be a highly creative day, where intuition and imagination have a chance to rise to the surface. If you’re of a daydreaming type, then this could be a perfect day for you!
Aug 07 – Mars square Saturn: This could be a day where hard work pays off, and material rewards follow. Alternatively, it could be a time that – despite all your very best efforts – unexpected blockages or restrictions will hold you back. Perhaps it’s the most perfect day for philosophically reflecting on either of these options.
Aug 08 – Sun trine Chiron : Could be a day for reminiscing, or where echoes of the past come back to haunt you. Shining a light on such things is always better than bottling them up, or hiding them away for another day.
Aug 09 – Venus opposition Pluto: An intense day for affairs of the heart – or for expressing darker ideas than usual with your creative work?
Aug 11 – Sun square Uranus: Spontaneity could be the call word of the day, today. Don’t make sudden decisions – especially if you’re driving, or doing something that could have negative consequences if they go wrong.
Aug 14 – Sun opposition Saturn: A great day to be practical, down to earth and even philosophical, if things don’t go your way. For those who drive through life with the accelerator pedal down, this could be a day to apply the brakes too!
Aug 14 – Mars trine Pluto: If tempers get inflamed today, walk away. Aggressive intensity could be the norm. Better to consider the underlying reasons for hostilities or anger – rather than express them in your usual way.
Aug 16 – Mercury trine Uranus: A good day for bringing new ideas to old problems. Think outside the box and you may well find a better outcome.
Aug 18 – Venus trine Jupiter: “All you need is love” should be the earworm today, as love is most definitely in the air! Could also be a great day to let your more creative instincts flow and come up with that masterpiece you’ve been meaning to do for some time now.
Aug 21 – Mercury opposition Neptune : Dream the dream – and write it down if you’re of a literary frame of mind. Could be a great day for new ideas that come out of the blue. Maybe a significant sleep dream you had is playing on your mind. Could be for a reason?
Aug 22 – Mercury trine Pluto: Yesterday’s thoughts might have been dreamy, but today’s could well be much more intense. If you keep a diary or journal, it will be interesting to one-day look back over these last two days and see what you wrote!
Aug 27 – Venus square Uranus: Sudden attractions to eccentric or rebellious types could well be the norm today. Caution in terms of affection is to be advised though. Unusual ideas could surface if you’re a creative type.
Aug 27 – Sun square Mars: Maybe a day for more physical energy to emerge, that will allow you to complete what you’re doing – or a day with the extra energy to start that heartfelt project that you’ve been meaning to start for some time now?
Aug 28 – Venus opposition Saturn: Could be a day to get serious with relationships – or with a particular relationship in question. Sometimes however, the paths of love do not run smooth – and this could well be one of those days!
