This month will be an average period as indicated in Aquarius monthly horoscope. Your outlook may not be as optimistic now and you will be a bit too short-tempered as well. This could affect your level of affability in relationships, both in the domestic sector as well as at workplace. It seems that you will be more invested in your career at this point. While there will be difficulties in the relationship sector, children could become source of happiness this month.
 
Jupiter, the planet of luck and fortune is changing sign after one year and moving into Libra on 12th September. Afterwards, you will likely enjoy better health. Jupiter transit will also be positive for your siblings and children. Students could also expect some positive developments after this major planetary move. Overall, your September horoscope seems more promising in the second half Aquarius. 
 
Aquarius career forecast in September: Your monthly career horoscope shows mixed results Aquarius. This is not the most opportune time to change job. Some temper issues could also get you in trouble at work, so better maintain a calm attitude. It will take some effort to be in the good books of boss. Salary hike is not expected either. If in business, gains may not be up to your expectations. Avoid partnerships at this time. If you are already engaged in a business partnership, be cautious after 17th September 2017.
 
Love and marriage predictions for September: Relationships demand attention. Aquarius monthly love horoscope shows lack of understanding between partners. Things will be a bit better in the second half of the month, which holds promise of romantic encounters. If you are single, it seems your someone special will take some time to enter your life. If married, discords and arguments may take place without reason so avoid confrontations when you can. For progeny prospects, the period after 12th September is positive. 
 
Money & Finance: Financial prospects do not seem to be much attractive at this time Aquarius. Your monthly money horoscope suggests sporadic gains and profits that may not match up to your expectations. This is not the best time to risk your money so better avoid investments. This month will be relatively better if you are employed than if you have your own business. Some expenses related to work are also possible this month, which could affect financial stability. Thus, cash flow may not be as smooth and balanced. 
 
September for students & children: The first few days hold much potential for success for your children but their health may not support them until 12th September. Once Jupiter transits sign, you will see considerable improvement. They will maintain a healthy and sweet relationship with you and also keep a diplomatic behavior. Their performance in studies may be poor at this time. If you are as student, more efforts will be needed to meet your goals. There could be many hurdles. Exam results may not be much encouraging either. Towards the end of the month, your concentration level might improve a bit. 
 
Family & Health: In terms of personal health, much respite is expected after 12th September. However, domestic environment could be a bit edgy. There may be some disagreements or disputes at home. This is the time to act with patience. On the domestic front, you need to be particularly careful after 12th September as family relationships could worsen then. However, siblings will become more cordial this month.
 
Pisces
 
Pisces, monthly horoscope looks promising for you. You will maintain a fluid and accommodating persona, just like water. Calm and collected, you will have a pleasant temperament. Your wisdom will aid wiser decisions now. Quite atypical, but you will put more logic to things than emotions like usual. This new approach will benefit you a lot, especially in career matters as seen in your September horoscope. In fact, career will be your focal of attention, Pisces. The knowledge you possess about the domain you handle will pay off now.
 
You will likely have a spiritual and philosophical bent of mind this month so naturally, indulgence in religious and sacred activities will also increase at this point. In terms of physical wellbeing, you will do well until 12th September 2017. However, after that when Jupiter moves sign and transits into Libra in your 8th house, some health hurdles may trouble you. You may also have to travel frequently this month. 
 
Pisces career forecast in September: Instability in career matters is indicated in your career horoscope for September, Pisces. This is not the time to make any changes, as the new job could be even more difficult. Salary hike is also not possible it seems. On the positive side, you will create affable bonds at work this month. If you are into business, expect the end of the month to be more profit bearing. However, avoid business partnerships at all costs.
 
Love and marriage predictions for September: Pisces monthly love horoscope suggests a bad phase ahead for existing partners. If single, you might feel physically attracted to someone. This could also result in a love affair soon. The month shows lots of romantic possibilities for lovers. However, this is not the best time to exchange vows if you are planning to. And if married, progeny prospects are not much promising either. In fact, if married, exercise more patience and handle matters in a calm way as some discords are expected. 
 
Money & Finance: Some new and unexpected financial gains might come your way Pisces! Share market trading will be particularly profitable around this time as evident in your money horoscope for the month. Income from job will also be satisfactory. However, there could also be expenses on domestic matters or on father. Since there is possibility of you indulging in disputes, it might be a good idea to handle matters with maturity to avoid any court cases. Issues should be resolved gracefully without any discords; otherwise, you might have to undergo financial pressures.
 
September for students & children: Children will grow well but some health issues may persist which could trouble their routine life. You will observe misbehavior and rudeness in their temperament at times. This is the time to handle them with patience. The period after 12th September is good in terms of success for your children. They will also maintain a good performance in studies. 
 
If you are a student, it could be hard to attract success this month. You might concentrate more on leisure and opposite sex than studies. Competition level is a tad too high at this point so there is a need to work harder. Maintain serious outlook and channelize your focus to where it should be. 
 
Family & Health: You will feel active and enjoy sound health in the first half of the month but the latter part may not be much rosy health wise. Family relationships will be much better after 12th September. You may also gain from ancestral property or an insurance policy at this time. However, siblings may not perform as per your expectations during this month.
 
August 2017
Aries
 
The Sun is in Leo and your passionate fifth house until August 22, giving you the urge to express yourself. Whether you're putting your talents on display, cranking up the heat in your love life or dominating the dance floor, this solar cycle is all about living out loud. Your ruling planet, energizer Mars, is also in Leo until September 5. Everywhere you go, your colorful Aries personality is in demand, so give the people what they want! Just a word of warning: Together the Sun and Mars form a very dynamic duo, but they can also drive up egos, drama and competitiveness. You can't help stealing the spotlight—just be careful not to hog it. Leave room for others to shine alongside you.
 
In true Leo-season form, August is an active month in the stars. There are two game-changing eclipses, two retrogrades and the final installment of three Jupiter-Pluto squares that will keep us all on our toes. It may feel like the only constant is change. While eclipses push us into bold new terrain, rear-facing retrogrades prompt us to slow down, review and reconnect with the past. It could feel a little time-warpy, so give yourself a chance to integrate these huge energy downloads.
 
Let's begin with the eclipses, which will fall on the Leo/Aquarius axis. These eclipses are part of a series running from 2017 to 2019 and disrupting the status quo around love, creativity, friendship and group activity. You're learning when to be the star and when to play metaphorical backup singer (indeed, there will be moments when you realize there is no "I" in team).
 
On August 7, the Aquarius lunar (full moon) eclipse could ignite a powerful collaboration as it falls in your eleventh house of group activity and technology. Set aside your solo act and team up with some powerful influencers today. This is an ideal date for a digital launch, as your message could go viral. Lunar eclipses can bring endings and turning points; there's no grey area here. You could make a sharp departure from a social group or faltering friendship that's run its course. The silver lining? This eclipse could usher in affiliation with a cutting-edge new tribe.
 
Your star turn arrives at the August 21 Leo total solar (new moon) eclipse, which thrusts you onto center stage. Ready or not, a bold beginning is underway, one that could radically revamp your style, self-expression and/or love life. This game-changing lunation spotlights your passionate fifth house, drawing attention and possible fame. Since it's the second of two rare, back-to-back Leo new moons (the first was July 23), events from a month ago could pick up speed. Reflect on what was happening near the February 10, 2017, Leo lunar eclipse, as today's eclipse is the sequel.
 
A budding love affair might quickly consummate, and an unexpected pregnancy (or news of one) is possible. Emotions could erupt in a messy outburst, so watch for drama! While you may have no choice but to put your no-filter feelings out there, choose your words responsibly. Inflammatory statements will only fan the flames of conflict. For Aries in the creative industries, the solar eclipse could bring an artistic renaissance or exciting recognition for your talents.
 
Struggling to juggle the demands of work and a relationship? August 4 brings the third in a trio of potent squares between outspoken Jupiter and secretive Pluto. With Pluto in your career sector and Jupiter in your partnership zone, power struggles could ensue. Your personal and professional ties may undergo intense but necessary changes. What have you been glossing over? In love, your visions for the future could reach a tough sticking point. For example, maybe one of you suddenly decides you want children after being a solid "no" to parenthood for years. Suddenly, differences you've ignored all along become glaring, culminating in a crisis that forces you to renegotiate the terms of a relationship.
 
A career change could force you to rely on someone else instead of holding down the fort—or perhaps to become a more equitable contributor instead of the dependent one. Navigate office politics with the utmost care now. With shadowy Pluto in the mix, there's an undertone of manipulative or bullying behavior. Read up on gaslighting because you may need to shield yourself from its mind-twisting effects. If you're splitting up a partnership, whether romantic or business, the process could get ugly. Look back to the first two Jupiter-Pluto squares on November 24, 2016, and March 30, 2017, for themes of what to resolve this month.
 
As if that weren't enough, we get a doubleheader of retrograde (backward) planets this month. Disruptive Uranus, which is in Aries, makes its annual U-turn from August 2 until January 2. Over the next five months, dial back your own renegade behavior a bit. Pot-stirring antics that seemed so endearingly avant-garde all year could rub people the wrong way now, casting you as the destructive rebel. There IS such a thing as bad publicity, Ram. Be discerning about the image and messages you put forth. Less is more! Be careful about altering your appearance (maybe wait on that tattoo, or at least interview a couple artists?). The best makeovers will be internal, so focus on personal growth work. If there's a passion project you've back-burnered or a 2017 goal you've neglected, Uranus retrograde is a powerful time to revisit those.
 
Communicator Mercury also turns retrograde from August 12 until September 5, which can disrupt communication, travel and technology. This month, Mercury will backtrack through Virgo and your healthy, organized sixth house. Stress levels will rise, and you could risk a multitasking meltdown if you take on too much. Guard against careless injuries and germs, as you could be susceptible to picking up that late-summer flu or cold. The best use of this retrograde is to streamline and simplify your life. This is a great time to declutter your workspace, appropriately store files and data, and reevaluate your exercise and eating habits. Hold off on any sweeping changes until Mercury turns direct next month, though.
 
On August 22, things get a little steadier as the Sun enters earthy Virgo for a month, joining Mercury in this wellness-minded zone. The hedonism of Leo season gives way to healthy pursuits and a fervent desire to get your life in order.
 
You'll be glad you did, because one of your big ideas could pick up speed as the month closes out. On August 25, structured Saturn ends a five-month retrograde in your ninth house of travel, entrepreneurship and study. Since April 5, the ringed taskmaster has been back-spinning through Sagittarius. You've been pulled in so many directions that it's been hard to turn your blue-sky dreams into reality. With the structure planet now moving direct (forward), those starry-eyed notions could gain traction, and a proper plan will start to form. Put some steam behind your dream, tackling the hard work that will build your visions on a firm foundation.
 
Taurus
 
The Sun is making its annual visit to Leo until August 22, spotlighting your fourth house of home, family and emotional foundations. Focus on your personal life instead of toiling away under the canned A/C. Nurturing your closest bonds, especially with women and children, will soothe your soul.
 
But don't set your lens to soft-focus just yet. With energizing Mars also in the sign of the Lion until September 5, this year's Leo season won't be a pastoral scene of iced sun tea on the veranda, or hours spent buried in the pages of summer's best beach fiction. Driven Mars could bring a flurry of activity to your home life—as well as a few moments of friction. A cacophony of kids, house guests or home renovation noise could make your base camp feel like summer camp—with you as head counselor. Your best bet: Embrace it or bust! Just be crystal-clear about carving your own personal space so you don't resent those chatty relatives or visiting couchsurfers. Set house rules, and remind folks, if necessary, that just because you're offering bed and board doesn't oblige you to cook, supply groceries or provide 24/7 entertainment. With the Sun and Mars in this touchy-feely zone, your emotions could get raw, and you'll need solitude to decompress. If it means putting a lock on your bedroom door or cranking up the air-con for makeshift white noise, so be it!
 
The stars supply plenty of reasons to be vigilant about your time-outs, Taurus. August is one heck of an active month in the heavens: There are two game-changing eclipses, two planetary retrogrades and the final installment of three Jupiter-Pluto squares that have been shaking things up since last November. It may feel like the only constant is change. While eclipses push us to make big moves, retrogrades prompt us to slow down—a weird pacing issue that could throw your energy off. Give yourself the proper time and space to integrate.
 
So, how to deal with all this cosmic calamity? Let's start with the eclipses, which fall on the Leo/Aquarius axis, part of a new series that will renegotiate your work-life balance from 2017 to 2019. Eclipses bring surprising changes and unexpected events and clear away what no longer serves us and push us to align with our true purpose. As a steady Taurus, too much change can make you queasy, but with eclipses, there's simply no way of planning ahead. Adopt an attitude of curious anticipation as much as you possibly can.
 
The first, a lunar eclipse, arrives at the August 7 Aquarius full moon, delivering a giant booster shot to your tenth house of career and long-term goals. You could rocket a few rungs up the professional ladder or receive a major opportunity for leadership and recognition. Lunar eclipses can turn things on their head quickly, bringing swift transitions and endings. A major executive might suddenly exit the company, or you may part ways with a longtime client. You could get news of a corporate restructuring, possibly one that makes your position obsolete or reshuffles your entire job description. While it could be shocking or upsetting, don't hit the panic button. Trust that lunar eclipses are sweeping away the old to make room for the new. Just as quickly, you could hear word of an exciting new gig that's much better suited to your talents. Be proactive. This eclipse is a powerful day to make any grand public debuts. Your father or an important man could figure into events.
 
The second eclipse is getting major media buzz because it's a total solar eclipse, the first one visible in the U.S. in decades. It falls at the August 21 Leo new moon, which is even more supercharged because it's the second rare, consecutive new moon in Leo this year (the first was on July 23). Big changes could arrive in your home and personal life: perhaps a move, a pregnancy or changes with a relative. A powerful woman could open doors for you. Reflect on events from a month ago, and also page back to February 10, the inaugural Leo eclipse (a lunar one) in this series. What insights did you have about your living situation? Did you have any emotional awakenings? In our opinion, solar eclipses can be a little easier to take than lunar ones, since they fall on new moons and bring beginnings rather than endings. This one could open a new chapter of your personal life that unfolds over the coming six months.
 
August 4 brings the third installment in a trio of intense squares that have formed between big-picture Jupiter and controlling Pluto over the past eight months. Jupiter is in your detail-driven sixth house of health and organization, while Pluto is in your ninth house of expansion and risk. One part of you wants to rush ahead with a grand (if hastily constructed) plan, but your visionary venture could be stopped cold by essential details like logistics, budget and timing. Or your own micromanaging tendencies could interfere with the need to take an important risk. Which voice do you listen to: the angel on your shoulder urging you to play it safe and stick with the status quo—or the devil egging you on to live a little, already?
 
The last two Jupiter-Pluto squares were on November 24, 2016, and March 30, 2017, so reflect back to these willful cosmic battles for themes that could resurface. Have you taken on more than you can humanly handle, or miscalculated an investment? Instead of gripping the wheel tighter, swallow your pride and correct course. The desire to "save face" will be your downfall, and it will only give your problems more power over you. Watch for stress-related health breakdowns, as the mind-body-soul connection is especially strong.
 
Lastly, we get a doubleheader of retrograde (backward) planets this month, as unpredictable Uranus and communicator Mercury do an about-face. Uranus, the planet of radical change and progress-at-any-cost, makes its annual five-month retrograde from August 2 until January 2. Uranus is in your twelfth house of closure, healing and the subconscious from 2011 to 2018, pushing you to evolve into new levels of self-awareness and depth.
 
Do you have a codependent tie to break or an emotional knot to unravel? Old baggage could come up for review, prompting you to use the rest of 2017 for reflection and change. Taurus, you're a creature of habit, and some of your vices can veer into addiction, affecting your mental and physical health. Uranus retrograde is a powerful time to take inventory and break any self-destructive cycles, perhaps with the support of a therapist, recovery group or naturopath. This retrograde could inspire a deep dive into the spiritual realm, exploring energy work, shamanic healing or whatever your preferred path to the divine may be. Art, music and dance can be powerful outlets for pent-up pain. Just lean in to the twelfth-house themes of surrender and support (two concepts you tend to resist). Let go of the things you can't control and ask for help when you need it! No matter what you're going through, Bull, you don't have to weather it alone.
 
Old friends and lovers could resurface while Mercury, the planet of communication, technology and travel, is retrograde from August 12 until September 5. Mercury will back through Virgo and your passionate, expressive fifth house. Take all the standard Mercury-retrograde precautions: backup your data and devices, triple-confirm appointments, and spring for that travel insurance. Have you abandoned a creative project? Dust off your drum kit or set up your old easel and paint set. Watch for drama, as misunderstandings can get heated, and your temper could shoot up fast.
 
Are you pining for the one that got away? Seek closure instead of holding a torch for someone. Retrogrades can bring back people from our past, and with Mercury moonwalking through your romantic fifth house, an ex could ping you out of the blue. Could the second time be the charm? If resuming contact is a bad idea, write a letter (the kind you never send) and release all the sadness, anger and regret you're holding inside. Then burn it ceremonially and ask the universe to help remove the painful feelings. You might also try reciting the Hawaiian Ho'oponopono prayer: I'm sorry/Please forgive me/Thank you/I love you.
 
The Sun will join Mercury on August 22, entering Virgo for its annual monthlong visit to your lusty, live-out-loud fifth house. If you've been a bit of a shut-in lately, shake off those homebody vibes and make hay while the summer sun still shines. A late-season romance could heat up—and hey, there are still a couple more weeks to enjoy some long walks on the beach. Have fun playing with your appearance, adding bold or glamorous touches. Who cares if you're late to the turquoise hair party? Throw in some Manic Panic and let your alter ego out to play. Dabble with the "sunset eye" or another Instagram-worthy beauty trend.
 
How deep is your love? On August 25, structured Saturn ends a five-month retrograde in Sagittarius and your eighth house of intimacy, joint ventures and long-term finances. If your mojo has been in slo-mo since the ringed planet reversed its commute April 5, your seductive side makes a comeback. Complications with money, real estate and legal entanglements could start to iron themselves out. Saturn retrograde offered a sobering look at how you merge with others—financially, emotionally, sexually. You may have been forced to make foundational changes, scaling back your cost of living or being more discerning about whom you trust. While it wasn't easy, your money and your relationships can now move forward on much firmer footing.
 
Gemini
 
Gemini! The Sun is in Leo until August 22, heating up your third house of communication, local events and ideas. You're at your vibrant best, bubbling over with interesting conversation topics and witty one-liners. Energetic Mars is also in Leo all month, making you the most vibrant fixture on the scene. Since Gemini is the natural ruler of the third house, you're in your element, holding court everywhere from the dog park to the dry-cleaner's. Since you're this hungry for inspiration, load up on your RDA of podcasts, Kindle downloads and stimulating newsfeeds—then head to some new neighborhood haunts to enjoy some binge-worthy intellectual intake while you sip an iced latte and become instant BFFs with the baristas.
 
Not that you'll be bored for a single minute this month. In true Leo-season form, August is an active time in the stars. There are two game-changing eclipses, two retrogrades and the final installment of a trio of Jupiter-Pluto squares. In other words, the cosmos will keep us all on our toes. While eclipses push us into bold new terrain, rear-facing retrogrades prompt us to slow down, review and reconnect with the past. You'll need to make time for reflection AND be able to snap into quick action when opportunity suddenly knocks. Whew! Thank your lucky stars you're a multitasking Gemini.
 
Let's begin with the eclipses, which will fall on the Leo/Aquarius axis. These eclipses are part of a series running from 2017 to 2019, sparking changes to your communication and friendships. They'll fall in your third house of ideas (ruled by Leo) and your ninth house of publishing, travel, education and entrepreneurship (governed by Aquarius). Over the next couple years, your mindset and beliefs could undergo a serious makeover.
 
On August 7, the Aquarius lunar (full moon) eclipse illuminates your worldly ninth and outspoken house, which could summon an unexpected moment of truth. Lunar eclipses can bring things to light rather abruptly. You may get surprising news or unleash a barrage of brutal honesty yourself. A major opportunity to travel, relocate or share your message with the masses could arrive. Someone from a background or culture much different than yours could play an unexpected role in events. You might get a wild hare to go back to school, launch a business or go freelance. Explore the options, Gemini, but know that lunar eclipses can be disorienting. Best to wait a week or so before you dive into anything you can't undo.
 
The second eclipse arrives on August 21, and it's a total solar (new moon) eclipse—as well as the second of two rare, back-to-back Leo new moons (the first was July 23). Events from a month ago could gain momentum, particularly around conversations, writing and local events, as this eclipse will fall in your third house of communication. It's the sequel to the February 10 Leo lunar eclipse, so don't be surprised if projects, conversations or people from six months ago suddenly resurface. Keep your devices charged: The solar eclipse could bring exciting news via text, email or phone call. A sibling or neighbor may be involved in eclipse-fueled events. You might be invited unexpectedly to take a prominent role on a project or in your community. A social media post could go viral. If you have a powerful message to share, the eclipse can carry it much farther than you expect. Could you be the (tasteful) next Chewbacca mom or "cash me outside" girl?
 
On August 4, we have the third and final installment in a triad of intense squares between outspoken Jupiter in your showy, ego-driven fifth house and furtive Pluto in your eighth house of secrets, intimacy and joint ventures. The first two were on November 24, 2016, and March 30, 2017, so look back to any incidents that may have occurred near these dates. While cocky Jupiter tempts you to tell all, shadowy Pluto can and will use your words against you. A jealous person could attempt to sabotage your efforts. Be extremely vigilant about what (and with whom) you share, especially if you're not 100 percent sure the other party is trustworthy.
 
With Jupiter and Pluto in love-related zones of your chart, their cosmic clash could drive up jealousy, obsession, and drama. Look at your own behavior: Are you getting a power rush from leaving people wondering where they stand, or making them clamor for your attention and affection? The temptation to play games is strong. On the flip side, you might be frustrated with someone's unwillingness to be transparent. Instead of engaging in a power struggle, refuse to take the bait. Step away from this low-vibe dynamic. Your real power (not the ego-based kind) comes from NOT letting a destructive person get a rise out of you. Remember this, though: Karmic Pluto acts as a mirror, revealing our own disowned "shadow" side. Difficult people can come into our lives to reveal where we have unresolved issues. Are your own fears of intimacy being reflected back by a wishy-washy person? Look within and do some healing work rather than pointing fingers. The answer, alas, is never outside of yourself.
 
Lastly, we get a double header of retrograde (backward) planets this month. Disruptive Uranus, which is in Aries, makes its annual U-turn from August 2 until January 2. Uranus is reversing through your eleventh house of teamwork and technology, which can shake up your inner circle. A friend or colleague could act erratically and you may feel out of sync with your tribe. Take stock: Who are the people you spend the most time with and how does their energy both affect and reflect on you? Over the next five months, distance yourself from toxic and undermining types, whether that's a jealous frenemy, a shade-throwing colleague or an Internet troll who spews all over your Facebook feed. (The "block" and "report" buttons were made just for these times, Gem.) While you're at it, learn from the impulsive ways of a certain Gemini president and lay off the incendiary Tweets and posts. Deleting doesn't erase people's memories—and the last thing you need is a screenshot or errant email that comes back to haunt you.
 
Another reason to protect your data and keep a low profile online: Your ruling planet, communicator Mercury, will also be retrograde from August 12 until September 5, which famously disrupts communication, travel and technology. Mercury will back through Virgo and your fourth house of home and family all month, which could cause tension to flare with loved ones, roommates and houseguests. If you're planning a vacation or Airbnb-ing your place, get everything in writing (and read those TripAdvisor reviews before you book!). Since retrogrades can bring back people from the past, it's a great time to reconnect with beloved relatives and friends, especially females, since the fourth house rules women. You could feel nostalgic and reflective. Take a few trips down memory lane, looking through old photos or revisiting a favorite childhood vacation spot.
 
Meanwhile, work on creating a sense of "home" wherever you go, getting comfortable in your skin and ramping up the self-care. On August 22, the Sun will enter Virgo for a month, which could amplify the Mercury mayhem. Thinking of moving? Proceed with caution: Mercury could cause complications and delays. If you must sign a lease or mortgage, read all the fine print and don't act on impulse. Listen to your gut. With Mercury back-pedaling through this intuitive zone, you're especially tuned in to weird vibes. But don't rush to hasty conclusions. You could either get a case of "analysis paralysis" and choke or act on pure emotion, creating chaos in your wake.
 
If possible, wait a month for any big decisions that affect your personal life. Mercury will make a second, retrograde-free trip through Virgo from September 10 to 30, restoring clear communication between head and heart.! The Sun lingers in Virgo until September 22, so target the period between September 10 and 22 for making savvy moves involving home and family.
 
Your most important relationships return to terra firma on August 25, when stern Saturn ends a five-month retrograde through Sagittarius and your committed seventh house. Since April 5, the ringed taskmaster has been reverse-commuting, pushing you to strengthen the foundation of business and romantic ties. Some Geminis took an outright break from love, while others savored a simpler approach. (Exciting discovery: Love is a lot more fun when you don't add unnecessary complications!)
 
With Saturn retrograde, you've been pushed to get serious in your interpersonal dealings, which may have brought a few sobering moments. It can be startling to see yourself through others' eyes, especially if their view is less flattering than the one you hold of yourself. But either a) these are not your people and what the hell are you doing hanging around them, or b) you learned some important lessons about integrity, direct communication and mutual respect.
 
Saturn is ALMOST done with its three-year tour of Sagittarius, which will be a huge relief, since its opposition to your Sun has laid on serious pressure. But take stock, Gemini: Have you gotten smarter about the people you choose as companions and confidantes? Are you engaged in rewarding work relationships? Are you on the road to a fulfilling romantic relationship or feeling more secure with your current S.O.? If you buckled down and did the work, Saturn will leave you with a sweet parting gift when he moves on this December 19. Saturn also knows that our inner work is never truly done—so lean in and keep making your relationships better and stronger over the next four months. Each moment brings the opportunity to make a new choice, so consider the impact of everything you say and do, not just on yourself but on the people whose support sustains you.
 
Cancer
 
Time to simplify, Cancer—as best as you possibly can. The August stars are all over the place, much like they were in July. But lucky for you, there's some anchoring energy coming in. Until August 22, the Sun is in Leo and your second house of work, daily routines and security. Set priorities by keeping your schedule lean and sticking to the basics. Hold off on splashy new undertakings until the fall. Your career could be a heat zone, as aggravator Mars blazes through Leo all month until September 5. This could bring an uptick in job demands or an unexpected expense that leaves you scrambling to cover the cost. You could also get an exciting moneymaking opportunity or catch wind of an offer that can catapult you to the next level. All the more reason to keep your calendar light so you're not too busy to seize this fleeting moment.
 
In true Leo season form, August is an active month in the stars. There are two game-changing eclipses, two retrogrades and the final installment of three Jupiter-Pluto squares that will keep us all on our toes. It may feel like the only constant is change. You'll also have to juggle dueling demands: dealing with unresolved stuff from the past while also quickly adapting to unexpected changes. While eclipses push us into bold new terrain, rear-facing retrogrades prompt us to slow down, review and reconnect with the past.
 
Let's begin with the eclipses, which will fall on the Leo/Aquarius axis. These eclipses are part of a series running from 2017 to 2019, bringing major changes to your financial sectors. The way you spend, save, earn and share could undergo big shifts, which will be exciting but also a little disorienting to your security-obsessed sign. Cancer, you're not always a fan of change, especially when it triggers fears around survival and security. But the eclipses are here to sweep away outmoded attitudes about money or work that no longer makes your soul sing, clearing the space for bigger and better. Your confidence and closest relationships will also undergo a transformational makeover now.
 
On August 7, the Aquarius lunar (full moon) eclipse ignites your eighth house of intimacy, mergers and shared finances. Lunar eclipses mark sharp turning points where things either come to full-blown manifestation or end abruptly. If a relationship has been hovering in the not-quite-committed territory or bumping over potholes, this eclipse could push you into a big decision. Is it time to give someone your final rose—or get the hell off the island? A joint business venture could also undergo similar scrutiny. You may receive an exciting chance to partner up or realize that your energy isn't the right match. The big existential question of the eclipse: Who are the people you're melding your energy, time, money and feelings with…and are they worthy of this inner-circle status? If not, move them down a couple tiers and make space for deserving candidates. And for those who've earned your hallowed trust, quit holding them at arm's length. Crack open that crabshell and let them in.
 
Caveat: Removing a few pieces of your emotional armor could freak you out at first. You're not used to feeling so exposed! At this outburst-prone eclipse, buried feelings could surge up like a dormant volcano. Don't be TOO quick to make any binding or permanent decisions under these extreme skies. While eclipses can drive up circumstances beyond our control, it's always best to wait about a week for the dust to settle before doing anything irreversible.
 
The second eclipse, on August 21, falls at the Leo new moon and illuminates your second house of work, finances and daily habits. This one's a whopper: Not only is it a rare second Leo new moon (there was also one on July 23), it's also a total solar eclipse that will be visible in parts of the U.S. for the first time in decades. In our opinion, solar eclipses can be a little bit easier to weather because they bring bold beginnings. While you could be thrust uncomfortably onto a larger stage or into unfamiliar terrain, there's plenty to get excited about. A new job or cash-bearing possibility could arrive out of the blue. Perhaps there will be travel, relocation or some other change to your lifestyle that goes along with it. You could be tapped for a promotion or to work on a high-profile new project. Keep your antennae up and strike while the iron is hot!
 
This eclipse will culminate at the January 31, 2018, Leo full moon, which will also be a total eclipse AND a potent supermoon. It could also pick up from seeds that were planted at the inaugural Leo lunar eclipse on February 10, 2017. The yearlong span between these two dates could give you a money makeover or spark big changes at work.
 
There are rumblings of change on almost every important front of your life this August, including your home and relationships. On August 4, we have the third in a trio of intense squares between outspoken Jupiter in your domestic fourth house and powermonger Pluto in your partnership zone. Intense emotions could flare up, and you could find yourself in a power struggle with a romantic partner, a close colleague or a family member. Be careful about advising on a loved one's personal life and mixing your own relatives into yours. This would NOT be the day to bring someone home to meet the parents or to inform your little sister that you despise her good-for-nothing fiance. Mommy and daddy issues much? People will project their own unresolved dramas on each other with abandon now—your best bet is to duck. The first two Jupiter-Pluto squares were on November 24, 2016 (Thanksgiving in the U.S.), and March 30, 2017, so look back to theses dates for clues of what could resurface—and hopefully resolve.
 
Since squares pull you in dueling directions, your ultimate quest is to find a compromise. Perhaps you and your S.O. have had a hard time figuring out where to live (city slickers or country dwellers?). Perhaps you've been at odds about whether to have kids or how to raise them. Issues with your mother or a close female relative could be putting a strain on your other relationships. Maybe it's high time you stood up for yourself and your choices. Bullies go away when they can't get a reaction out of you. If you've veered into codependent caretaking, put the focus back on yourself. Your well-meaning attempts to "save" people will backfire.
 
Lastly, we get a double header of retrograde (backward) planets this month. Volatile Uranus, which is in Aries and your tenth house of career, makes its annual U-turn from August 2 until January 2. Over the next five months, there could be changes or disruptions on your career path. It won't be a smooth trajectory to the top—in fact, you may have to deal with some ill-timed slowdowns or distractions. Your department restructures, a key management person leaves, technology has an epic fail: Embrace these plot twists as opportunities to get all YOUR ducks in a row. If you're a business owner, consider a rebrand or in-depth customer survey. Keep a low profile, as authority figures and decision-makers could push your buttons now. Since retrogrades bring back the past, an old boss or colleague may surface with a freelance gig or a great introduction. Mine your contacts and polish up your presentation.
 
Communicator Mercury is retrograde from August 12 until September 5, which can disrupt communication, travel and technology. Mercury will be retrograde in Virgo and your expressive third house, doubling your odds of being wildly misunderstood. Be careful what you put in writing, and read all the fine print before signing anything legally binding. Tension could erupt with a sibling, neighbor or colleague. Avoid antagonistic people and instead, reconnect with old friends. Dust off an abandoned project or hobby, or polish your skills by taking a weekend workshop.
 
Things get a little steadier as the Sun enters earthy Virgo on August 22 for a month and structured Saturn ends a five-month retrograde on August 25. Since April 5, the ringed taskmaster has been backspinning through Sagittarius and your sixth house of health, fitness and organization. Climb back on the wellness wagon. If you drifted away from nutritious meals, regular exercise and self-care, it will be easier to implement a structure. A nagging issue could be identified and treated—and when Saturn leaves Sagittarius for good on December 19, you'll be free from this heavy energy altogether. The sixth house also rules helpful people. If you've struggled to find proper support or have felt overwhelmed by multitasking, you could find a steady service provider to take some of that stressful load off your plate.
 
Leo
 
Your reinvention tour commences now. August is a HUGE turning point for your sign, as the stars send you hurtling down an exciting but unfamiliar new path. Luckily, the destination is completely aligned with your dreams and desires—but don't expect to be handed a GPS or itinerary for your route. You're realigning your lifestyle, relationships and priorities to match the person you've become.
 
So, what's behind all this transformational mojo? For starters, it's Leo season, as the Sun visits your sign until August 22 and puts your personal agenda front and center. After an emotional July, you're ready to pull yourself together and make it HAPPEN. Go-getter Mars is also in Leo until September 5, heating up your ambitions and putting you in high demand. Mars only comes to your sign every two years, so don't expect to sleep much this August. There will be way too much action happening in your life, and you'll want to do it all.
 
But the headline news arrives on August 21, when the Leo new moon bursts onto the scene as a life-changing total solar eclipse. New moons mark your personal new year, and eclipses bring surprising changes that arrive in the blink of an eye. An out-of-the-blue opportunity could whisk you off your current trajectory and onto a whole new path. It's the cosmic equivalent of standing in line at Starbucks and being "discovered" by a talent agent who turns you into a megastar. You were just trying to get a cold-brewed coffee and go back to your mid-level day job, but the universe had other plans. (Hey, it literally happened to fellow Leo Karlie Kloss, who was accidentally scouted when she attended a local benefit runway show at age 13.)
 
While normally you only get one new moon in your sign per year, this one happens to be the second in a rare double-header of Leo new moons (the first was on July 23). Yes, Leo, 2017 is blessing you with an extra shot of fresh-start energy. This year also brings two eclipses in your sign. The first, a lunar (full moon) eclipse was on February 10, so look back to that date for clues of what might be resurfacing. Did you have any epiphanies about what you're "meant" to do? Were you cast into a starring role or inspired to change the way you present yourself? Now peer ahead to January 31, 2018, when a Leo total lunar eclipse will bring all the seeds planted this month to another powerful manifestation moment. Where would you like to be by then?
 
With this eclipse in your first house of appearances, you might make a bold external change, like a radically different hairdo, a tattoo or a wardrobe overhaul. Or invest in an upgraded edge that pulls your whole look together, such as eyebrow microblading or getting your teeth professionally whitened by a cosmetic dentist as a place like this one. We're not suggesting that you alter your appearance to "fix" anything. Rather, this attention to your look is symbolic of the big shifts happening within you. (And let's be real, when you've got a Lion's mane, the saying "new you, new 'do" holds extra truth.)
 
Seriously, that would be enough excitement for anyone, but August is just warming up, folks. In addition to this Leo makeover—more like takeover!—this month has a SECOND eclipse, two retrogrades and the final installment of three Jupiter-Pluto squares that have been shaking things up since last November. It may feel like the only constant is change. While eclipses push us into daring new terrain, rear-facing retrogrades prompt us to slow down, review and reconnect with the past. Thank goodness you're a mighty Leo and you can handle this…we promise!
 
This month's other eclipse arrives on August 7, with the Aquarius full moon. It's a lunar eclipse, which will bring events of the past six months to an intense manifestation, completion or a turning point. It's like a huge spotlight, revealing all that's been hidden—or that you ignored. This eclipse will fall in your seventh house of committed relationships. A close business or personal tie could rocket forward into official terrain…or, in some cases, abruptly end. These lunations are part of a series running from 2017 to 2019, reshuffling the balance of "me" and "we" in your life. If you've gotten too consumed by a relationship or someone else's needs, you'll reclaim your roar. And if you've been too much of the lone lion standing proudly on a rock, you'll start gathering a tribe of loyal lifers.
 
About that roar: You've been tweaking your message for almost a year now, trying to figure out how to deliver explicit communication without coming across as a control freak. This conflict was spurred by a three-part series of combative squares between outspoken Jupiter in your expressive third house and calculating Pluto in your analytical and detail-driven sixth house. The previous ones fell on November 24, 2016, and March 30, 2017. August 4 will bring the final round of this epic match-up.
 
With both curious Jupiter and obsessive Pluto in intellectual zones, these squares found you WAY caught in your head at times. Maybe you over-solicited opinions, getting so many that you wound up even more confused. Leo, you're famous for juggling multiple projects, but at these manic multitasking squares, you finally grasp what "too much" really looks and feels like. There could be power struggles with employees or service providers. If you're refusing to delegate or to ask for support, you could veer into meltdown territory from the stress of trying to meet your many obligations. Conversations can get heated, and people are prone to taking criticism WAY too personally. Your messaging could be "off" now, accidentally provoking or offending someone. Watch what you say, post and email, and don't send off anything that you haven't thought all the way through.
 
The goal of a square is to balance—squares force us to strike a compromise between two off-setting forces. These Jupiter-Pluto clashes are helping you figure out when it's best to be collaborative and when you need to take charge. Too many cooks may add interesting flavors to the broth, but the soup will never get done if nobody can agree on a recipe! Pare down your overstuffed inner circle and simplify your schedule. Say "no" to a few more things so you can say "yes" to the stuff that really matters.
 
Lastly, we get a double header of retrograde (backward) planets this month. Disruptive Uranus, which is in Aries and your outspoken ninth house, makes its annual U-turn from August 2 until January 2. Over the next five months, take more measured risks instead of completely turning your life upside-down. Plans to launch a business, go back to school or relocate might hit a few speed bumps. The extra planning time could be an extra gift, so don't force anything to happen.
 
Communicator Mercury also turns retrograde from August 12 until September 5, which can muddle communication, travel and technology. Mercury will backtrack through Virgo and your second house of work and money for the rest of August, then it will spend the last week of its backspin in Leo. Keep firm tabs on your finances and avoid hot-button conflicts at work. Back up your most important files to the cloud and be crystal clear around deadlines, money and other agreements made with clients or coworkers.
 
On August 22, things get a little steadier as the Sun enters earthy Virgo for a month and heats up your second house of work, money and daily routines. Drama, especially in your love life, could clear up on August 25, when structured Saturn ends a five-month retrograde in Sagittarius and your passionate, expressive fifth house. If your mojo's been in slo-mo since April 5 or you've felt blocked creatively, blame it on restrictive Saturn's dampening spirits. Baby plans may have gotten back-burnered, or a budding romance could have hit a rocky patch. With Saturn zooming ahead, you can take concrete steps with a relationship or artistic venture. The time off may have been a blessing in disguise, giving you the chance to clarify your message or put proper boundaries in place. Now it's safe to start spreading the news and putting yourself out there again.
 
Virgo
 
You are getting verrrry sleepy, Virgo. This month could find you struggling to keep your energy up during the first three weeks, as the Sun slogs through Leo and your twelfth house of rest, closure and endings. You're winding down a long solar cycle in preparation for your next birthday—and Virgo season, which begins on August 22. That should provide something of a reboot, but TBH it might take until the second week of September for you to start feeling completely on top of your game again. That's because your ruling planet, Mercury, the guardian of technology, communication and travel, is retrograde until September 5, and it will backtrack through Virgo until August 31, leaving you feeling exhausted and misunderstood. Ride it out and do your behind-the-scenes work. Save the splashy debut for next month.
 
Even more reason to lay low: Energy planet Mars is also in Leo and this sluggish house until September 5, and you could be burning the candle at both ends. This fatiguing transit, which only occurs every two years, can leave you feeling both wired AND tired. Your body cries for respite, but your whirling mind insists that "there's so much to do!" Stressful Mars pushes you to go beyond your limits, but doing so can make you prone to sloppy mistakes at work or careless accidents from being spread too thin. If you find yourself muscling through an draining deadline or caught in a codependent spiral, extract yourself as best as you can and honor your need for rest. If you're tossing and turning at night, try powering down your devices and avoiding stressful newsfeeds an hour before bedtime.
 
Motivator Mars in this spiritual and subconscious zone makes this a great time for a meditation practice (even listening to guided ones through an app) and relaxing in water, whether you take an evening swim or a bath. If you opt for the tub, here are a few aura cleansing suggestions from fellow Virgo Gala Darling. If nothing else, you'll feel purified and squeaky-clean, which always improves a Virgo's mood!
 
And mood management could certainly be in order. In addition to everything we just mentioned, August is one of 2017's busiest months in the stars. There are two game-changing eclipses; Mercury AND Uranus turn retrograde; plus we'll have to navigate the final installment of three intense Jupiter-Pluto squares. Everyone will be all over the map, since eclipses bring sudden plot twists and retrograde energy pushes us to deal with unresolved issues. Give yourself a minute to integrate it all!
 
On August 2, radical changemaker Uranus will turn retrograde until January 2 in Aries and your eighth house of intimacy, shared finances and mergers. Did you rush into something that now feels too restrictive? You may feel the urge to make a quick escape—or at least, to take things down a few notches. Jealousy and trust issues could flare up, and the next five months are a good time to work through those. The real question: Are these emotions coming from your past, or are there legitimate reasons you feel this way? A legal or real estate matter might also have a few twists and turns. Keep tabs on your finances and investments: You may need to dip into your savings, or you might decide to get more serious about long-term financial planning. Since Uranus rules technology, this (along with Mercury retrograde) marks a good time to change your passwords and take extra measures against identity theft.
 
On August 4, we have the third in a trio of intense squares between outspoken Jupiter in your second house of work and money and secretive Pluto in your fifth house of self-expression. You could feel torn between competing desires for financial security and creativity. Can your passions earn you a proper paycheck? Your need to cover the basics might be at odds with your urge to pursue your soul's calling. While squares can add stress and bring power struggles, they can also help us negotiate a balancing act. Look back to the previous two Jupiter-Pluto squares on November 24, 2016, and March 30, 2017, for clues.
 
Your rising confidence could also stir up unrest in your love life, especially if you were once a starry-eyed disciple who now feels grounded in your self-worth. Need we say it? If someone only wants you when you're weak, they don't deserve you when you're strong. Maybe you've been supporting a partner financially and things are starting to feel imbalanced. This square could push you to speak up and demand that they carry their fair share of the load.
 
Now let's talk about the eclipses, which are moments of big change or surprising plot twists that can alter the course of your life in exciting (if uprooting) ways. These lunar liftoffs will fall on the Leo/Aquarius axis, and they're part of an eclipse series running from 2017 to 2019. They'll transform the way you approach health, fitness, work, spirituality and emotions, helping you strike a radically new balance between control and surrender, and planning and going with the flow.
 
The first one, which arrives on August 7, is a lunar (full moon) eclipse in Aquarius and your sixth house of wellness, work and organization. This could inspire an epic decluttering that also leads to a major psychological transformation ("letting go" has so many meanings, after all). You might be inspired to make a huge health shift, or perhaps you'll get doctor's orders to revamp your lifestyle. You could quit a bad habit cold turkey. This eclipse could find you pondering your purpose. As the sign of service, you need to feel like you're making a difference with your time on this planet. You may have an epiphany about the kind of work you want to do and how it will enrich people's lives.
 
On August 21, a total solar (new moon) eclipse lands in Leo—the second in a rare duo of back-to-back Leo new moons (the first was July 23). New moons mark fresh starts, and paired with an eclipse, they can open radical new chapters. Paradoxically, this eclipse falls in your twelfth house of closure—an ending that's also a beginning. This lunation pushes you to release control and allow yourself to be supported, guided and receptive. In essence, it's a big day off from being a Virgo. By surrendering to the universe (or whatever you call a higher spiritual power), you can usher in a wave of healing.
 
What do you need to release, Virgo? Eclipses aren't exactly subtle about showing you. You could get undeniable "signs" through coincidences and serendipities, such as hearing a song that a departed loved one always played or receiving an important text from someone just as you're thinking about them. Listen to your intuition and REST. The twelfth house rules sleep, and you could be in dire need of a mental and emotional break—perhaps a getaway near water? This lunation could also coincide with a new spiritual practice: meditation, energy healing, prayer—whatever your jam is. By peeling away layers and shedding skin, you'll transform, inviting in something new that's a much better fit for the person you've become. Look back to February 10 of this year, when a Leo lunar eclipse may have brought people or important insights that link to this month's eclipse.
 
You'll start to feel more like yourself after August 22, when the Sun enters Virgo for a month, bringing you back from the depths. (Don't you have a birthday party to plan or something?) And on August 25, structured Saturn ends a four-month retrograde in Sagittarius and your domestic fourth house. This could have spelled family drama, a delayed move or stalled baby plans. Your relationship with a female relative, possibly your mother, may have gone through growing pains. Now that Saturn is powering forward, pick up the pace again. Emotions you've been keeping inside can safely be aired. If you've been lacking in the self-care department, make it a priority again.
 
Libra
 
The Sun is in Leo and your vibrant, collaborative eleventh house until August 22. After a hardworking July, you're ready to spread your social butterfly wings and network as only your sign can. With intense Mars also in Leo from July 20 to September 5, your outgoing energy is cranked up high. Whether you're rallying the troops to get pumped about a work project or making an unforgettable entrance at a summer fiesta, you're the heartbeat of every group gathering.
 
Since the eleventh house rules technology, your online presence will be just as dynamic. Be sure to wield it consciously! If you have a powerful message, it could go viral. All the more reason to post with awareness. Aggressive Mars can also intensify conflict. Not every team effort will be high-fives and fist bumps. You may need to hash out a few differences and deal directly with conflict. This admittedly is NOT your favorite thing, Libra. Use your sign's natural diplomatic gifts and you'll move swiftly from fighting to uniting.
 
Brace yourself: August is an active month in the stars. There are two game-changing eclipses, two retrogrades and the final installment of three Jupiter-Pluto squares. Slip into comfortable footwear because the cosmos will keep you on your toes! There will be a lot of new issues to navigate AND old stuff to slog through simultaneously. While eclipses push us into bold new terrain, rear-facing retrogrades prompt us to slow down, review and reconnect with the past. Give yourself a chance to integrate these huge energy downloads. Let the unofficial Libra motto "take it slow" be your saving grace.
 
Let's begin with the eclipses, which fall on the Leo/Aquarius axis. Eclipses are major cosmic events that shake up business as usual, often bringing surprises or major plot twists. These eclipses are part of a series running from 2017 to 2019 that will revamp your eleventh house of friendship and your fifth house of love. Renegotiating the balance between drama and detachment is the mission of these lunar lifts. You may significantly alter elements of your social circle, love life or romantic choices. These eclipses could also push you to become more visible, both in the digital space and as a public personality. What do you want to be known for, Libra? Influencer status awaits!
 
On August 7, the Aquarius lunar (full moon) eclipse sweeps through your fifth house of love, fame and creativity. The microphone is yours—in a BIG way—and you may have to wing it. There's no time to prepare any lofty orations, so tune in to your heart and speak from there. Authenticity will resonate with a lot more people anyhow. Have you been hiding your talents and passions? This eclipse will train the klieg lights squarely on them, giving you a big hit of attention. Use it to your advantage! Take care to avoid drama, as this full moon can stir up plenty, churning up strong emotions. You may be a little too quick to react around this eclipse. 
 
With the cosmic spotlight on love today, a budding attraction could turn into a full-on affair. Unexpected pregnancy news is also possible (surprise!). Has a romantic situation been hanging in the balance, not really getting off the ground? Lunar eclipses can bring intense endings or turning points. No more Mr. Nice Guy, Libra—you're either in or you're out!
 
The August 21 Leo total solar (new moon) eclipse makes its play in your eleventh house of group activity, technology and innovation. Solar eclipses can bring fresh opportunities that accelerate quickly. You could make a swift exit from one group or receive an unexpected invitation to join a cutting-edge collaboration. If you're planning a splashy social media debut or email campaign, this is the day to launch. Has a member of Team Libra been a chronic pain in the you-know-what? Cut 'em loose and don't look back. A dynamic new replacement could show up to fill that spot instantly. Look back to February 10, when a Leo lunar eclipse shook things up in this part of your life. While you're at it, circle January 31, 2018, when the next Leo lunar eclipse will bring events sparked today to another huge turning point.
 
On August 4, we have the third in a trio of intense squares between outspoken Jupiter in Libra and controlling Pluto in Capricorn and your domestic fourth house. A domineering relative could push your buttons, or you might feel totally caged in by someone's emotional instability. Your mother, a child or a female relative may be a particular source of angst today, as you grapple with competing demands for your attention. Jupiter in your sign has you craving freedom and personal space. But with Pluto digging its hooks into you, flexing your independence could make a needy person extra clingy. Whether they brood in silence or explode in an abusive outburst, there’s no need to walk on eggshells, Libra. These retaliations have little to do with you and probably a whole LOT to do with some unhealed childhood wound. Make sure you're not acting out yourself, e.g., lashing out at anyone who seems like they're behaving in a parental manner but is really just attempting an adult conversation. If you're triggered, take a time-out.
 
Reflect back on the last two Jupiter-Pluto squares, which happened on November 24, 2016, (Thanksgiving Day in the U.S., when many family gatherings were divided in the wake of the presidential election) and March 30, 2017. Similar dynamics may have erupted. This final square gives you a chance to finally strike a balance between pleasing yourself and taking care of everyone else. It's a fine line for a Libra, since you want everyone to be happy at all times! Nobody wins when you chase that impossible goal, and it’ll only leave you frustrated. Be upfront and honest to avoid giving people unrealistic expectations. With Pluto in your home sector, be mindful about whom you let into your space, whether it's houseguests, roommates or just a casual visitor. You'll absorb their energy quickly. This goes both ways: If you're going to see friends or family near this date, splurge on a hotel to keep firm boundaries intact. This is also a good day for a space-clearing ritual or some Feng Shui adjustments to purify the energies in your household. Ah, sweet sanctuary!
 
Lastly, we get a double header of retrograde (backward) planets this month. Disruptive Uranus, which is in Aries and your seventh house of partnerships, makes its annual U-turn from August 2 until January 2. Over the next five months, a relationship could go through a few twists and turns. You may feel confined in a commitment or be yearning for more freedom. A normally steady person, either in business or love, could behave in an unstable manner. You might part ways for the short term or give each other a little more breathing room while you iron out differences. Experimental Uranus retrograde can give you a bit of a wandering eye, but don't be naive about the possible downsides here.
 
Communicator Mercury also turns retrograde, from August 12 until September 5, which can disrupt communication, travel and technology. Mercury will backtrack through Virgo and your twelfth house of rest and healing. You may need to retrace your steps, nurse an old wound or process unresolved emotions. An ex or a difficult person could resurface, and this could be an important time for closure. A project you assumed was done could have a gnarly round of revisions that could be time-consuming. Try to make tasks like this less frustrating by playing music, taking replenishing breaks and adopting a spirit of "we're in this together" camaraderie.
 
During this retrograde, your dreams can be vivid, and buried subconscious thoughts could come up. Don't take any of it 100 percent literally, but do mine the material for clues. Your intuition is talking to you, and it won't be ignored any longer. You may be a little paranoid during this cycle, so avoid playing amateur detective. That suspicious text on your S.O.'s phone may be nothing—and we certainly don't recommend stooping to snooping. If you want to find out what's up, ask directly.
 
The pace slows a bit on August 22, when the Sun slips into Virgo and your restful twelfth house for a month. This is your annual time to slow down and clear the decks before your birthday. Libra season begins on September 22 this year, so you have a full month to tie up lingering projects or go off the grid and take stock of the long year and solar cycle you're wrapping up. Structured Saturn ends a five-month retrograde on August 25, after backstepping through Sagittarius and your communication house since April 5. Your thoughts will get clearer, and you'll become more focused on the mission ahead. A few ideas you've been mulling over could turn into bona fide undertakings. If you've struggled to articulate a concept or to assert your needs, Saturn's direct (forward) turn will give you back that missing clarity. Writing, teaching and media projects could help
 
Scorpio
 
Your move, Scorpio. While others are MIA this month, you're hunched over the metaphorical chess board, ready to capture the king. The Sun is in regal Leo and your tenth house of career, success and prestige until August 22, pumping up your ambitions. And it's getting extra jetpack fuel from go-getter Mars, which is riding shotgun in Leo from July 20 to September 5. This blazing hot cycle only comes around every two years to boost your professional mojo and set your sights on a lofty goal.
 
Let the others escape to the beach: You’re just as happy burning the midnight oil on a project that can put your name on the map. Mars cranks up the pressure and intensity, putting you in competitive spirits. With so many people out of town, you have the advantage. Position yourself for a coup by getting closer to decision makers or taking ownership on a plum project. A promotion, leadership post or career-defining role could be yours for the taking. But make sure the investment will pay off before raising your hand. Otherwise, you'll just end up with a ton of thankless work dumped in your lap while summer dwindles away. Fierce Mars in your tenth house can bring demanding deadlines, unappreciative bosses or thankless clients. Putting up with THAT had better be worth it—or don't sign on!
 
In classic Leo-season form, August is an active month in the stars. There are two game-changing eclipses, two retrogrades and the final installment of a triad of Jupiter-Pluto squares that will keep us all on our toes. It may feel like the only constant is change. While eclipses push us into bold new terrain, rear-facing retrogrades prompt us to slow down, review and reconnect with the past. Life could feel a little time-warpy, so give yourself a chance to integrate these huge energy waves before making any life-altering decisions.
 
Let's begin with the eclipses, which fall on the Leo/Aquarius axis. These eclipses are part of a series running from 2017 to 2019, shaking your personal and professional zones. Your work-life balance may take on new look as these galvanizing eclipses sweep through town, reshuffling your priorities and possibly bringing a lifestyle or career change.
 
On August 7, the Aquarius lunar (full moon) eclipse lands in your domestic fourth house, putting home and family in the spotlight. Lunar eclipses can bring sudden transitions, manifestations or endings. This one could involve a change of address or a real estate deal that finally closes. You might be offered a job in a new city or decide to swap keys with your S.O. There could be an unexpected change to your family structure, such as a surprise pregnancy or someone moving in (or out) without much notice.
 
Your mother, a child or a female relative could figure into events near this eclipse. If you need to clear the air with a loved one, tread lightly because strong emotions could erupt today. You'll be especially sensitive, prone to taking things personally. And since eclipses push us past the point of no return, you could end up burning an important bridge or fueling a family feud. That said, if someone's been abusing your kindness, this is an important moment to cut those antics off for good.
 
The second eclipse, on August 21, is the buzzed-about total solar (new moon) eclipse, which will land in Leo and your tenth house of career. Not only will it inject your goals with a major infusion of fresh-start energy, it's the second of two RARE, back-to-back Leo new moons (the first was July 23). Events from a month ago could pick up speed. You could get an incredible job offer or land a whale of a client—and it could happen with very little notice! Public recognition could come your way, and you could be honored for your dedication and achievements. Get yourself camera-ready before this date (not that you aren't always polished and "pret") because a leadership opportunity could arrive out of the blue. Events that start now could culminate at the January 31, 2018, Leo total lunar (full moon) eclipse, a six-month buildup to major moves. For clues, look back to February 10, when the Leo lunar eclipse first energized this part of your chart.
 
On August 4, your shadowy co-ruler, Pluto, rams into a heated square with outspoken Jupiter, which is in your twelfth house of hidden agendas, closure and illusions. Pluto is in your third house of communication, and under this tense starmap, there's no predicting what will come out of people's mouths (yours included). Passive-aggressive barbs could fly, and they'll cut deeply. A power struggle could ensue with a sibling, colleague or neighbor. This is the third and final installment in a series of Jupiter-Pluto squares that have rocked the past eight months. The others were on November 24, 2016, and March 30, 2017, so look back to those dates for clues of what's surfacing now.
 
Scorpio, your sign can famously hold a grudge, storing evidence and building resentment until you blow like Mount Vesuvius. But instead of unleashing deadly verbal lava on the world, take responsibility for your part of the equation. Why haven't you spoken up sooner? Newsflash: Just because YOU can read people's minds, doesn't mean they can read yours. If you've been throwing subtle shade or dropping hints, you can't get mad at people. The onus is on YOU to communicate directly, without the emotional blackmail.
 
If you've been in an abusive situation, it's never your fault. However, this Jupiter-Pluto square could be a wakeup call, helping you see this for what it is. Instead of sticking around and hoping things will change, find a way to safely remove yourself. You can only rationalize and make excuses for so long. On the flip side, if you've been acting in manipulative or codependent ways, it's time to get to the root of your fears and insecurities, which are likely driving this behavior. While it's wise not to trust just anyone, how many loyalty tests can one person be subjected to? There's a strong tendency to project your baggage onto others near this date. You could also be on the receiving end of someone else's meltdown. Walk away instead of taking the bait.
 
Lastly, we get a double header of retrograde (backward) planets this month. Disruptive Uranus, which is in Aries and your sixth house of health and helpful people, makes its annual U-turn from August 2 until January 2. Over the next five months, you might shift your eating and exercise habits or streamline the systems that keep your life in tip-top shape. Retrogrades reveal where things aren't up to snuff, but you may have a few false starts before finding your groove. One step at a time—don't race into any extreme lifestyle changes now. You may need to make a few changes on Team Scorpio, but screen people carefully before bringing them into your orbit. Reliable employees and service providers could flake out or just have their own stuff going on, leaving you to make up for their sloppy work. Certain changes may be unavoidable, for example, your social media director takes maternity leave or your yoga studio closes for renovations. Flexibility will be your saving grace. Watch your stress levels and avoid multitasking, as rash Uranus here can make you accident-prone, and rushing will only mean you have to retrace your steps.
 
Communicator Mercury also turns retrograde from August 12 until September 5, which can disrupt communication, travel and technology. Mercury will go rogue in Virgo and your eleventh house of teamwork and technology. This could spell even more disruptions in group endeavors, since wires are likely to get crossed, and power struggles can ensue. Be extra mindful about what you email and post, as you're likely to be wildly misunderstood. Sure, you can delete that Tweet, but those 140 characters won't be easily forgotten.
 
On the positive side, retrogrades can be great for reunions. Old colleagues and cohorts can resurface, making for lively reminiscing and reconnection. One of them might even hold the key to an exciting job opportunity. The chances of that double after August 22, when the Sun enters Virgo for a month, putting you in convivial spirits. The relentless "rise and grind" energy of Leo season gives way to a lighter and more social month. Get away from your desk and go network, mingle and enjoy the company of good people.
 
Money matters take a turn for the better on August 25, when stringent Saturn ends a five-month retrograde in Sagittarius and your second house of work and finances. Since April 5, the ringed taskmaster has been backspinning through Sagittarius, forcing you to tighten your belt or knuckle down on the job. Maybe there were rumblings of layoffs, or your duties felt oppressive and uninspiring. Stability could return now, and all the sacrifices you made might start to finally pay off. Start funneling funds into a nest egg. If your confidence took a hit during this Saturn cycle, you'll regain your footing—and your self-worth. Shoulders back, head high!
 
Sagittarius
 
It's the most wonderful time of the year—at least, if you're a Sagittarius. The Sun is making its annual chariot ride through lively Leo until August 22, parading through your ninth house of expansion, adventure and travel. Sagittarius is the natural ruler of the zodiac's ninth house, so you’ll be in the zone, pulsating with possibilities. (Who needs Christmas with all this Sag energy in the air now?) As a special bonus, energizer Mars is also in Leo from July 20 to September 5, dialing up your wanderlust and giving you the urge to take a bold risk. Maybe you'll roll the dice on a business venture or pack your bags for a far-flung getaway. Your sign loves to learn, so dive into a metaphysical topic or start exploring back-to-school possibilities for early fall.
 
In true Leo-season form, August is an active month in the stars. There are two game-changing eclipses, two retrogrades and the final installment of a triad of Jupiter-Pluto squares that will keep us all on our toes. It may feel like the only constant is change. While eclipses push us into intrepid new terrain, rear-facing retrogrades prompt us to slow down, review and reconnect with the past. It's a LOT to integrate, even for your sign, so pace yourself.
 
Let's begin with the eclipses, which fall on the Leo/Aquarius axis. These are part of a galvanizing eclipse series running from 2017 to 2019, shaking up your communication sectors. Writing, media, teaching, publishing, travel and learning are all highlighted. There will be action both on the local and long-distance scenes. You could find yourself hopping between neighborhoods, taking up a community post (school board or Chamber of Commerce, anyone?) or getting your message out in a big way. With the eclipses stirring up epic energy in these media-savvy sectors, you could become a viral voice with your witty wordplays and outspoken opinions.
 
Your first shot at the global mic arrives on August 7, when the Aquarius lunar (full moon) eclipse sweeps through your third house of communication and kindred spirits. Your powerful statements could catapult you into a leadership role—or get you into hot water, so mind your message! The third house rules neighborhoods; are you happy in yours? This eclipse could bring a relocation, perhaps to a different part of town, a "second city" that steals your heart (maybe a housing swap is in order with someone in Paris or Prague?), or a chance to get more deeply involved on the local scene. Is it time to open that pop-up shop, Sag? Lunar eclipses can bring sudden endings, turning points or manifestations. Perhaps a joint project will attract buzz, putting your names on the map. You could have an amazing "click" with someone whose ideas and skills complement yours perfectly. Been biting your tongue? You might clear the air with a friend or sibling. With the eclipse putting it ALL out there, things could get explosive, especially since your sign can be blunt.
 
The truth-telling continues at the August 21 total solar (new moon) eclipse, which lands in Leo and your honest-to-a-fault ninth house. Which part of your life could you stand to be more authentic in, Sagittarius? This eclipse could also bring a big push to travel, study or publish your ideas. An entrepreneurial venture can take flight quickly, or you could be invited to join a savvy startup business. This is a time of rapid growth and expansion, when you adopt a new perspective or take a chance on your dreams. Since eclipses bring surprises, it's hard to predict exactly how they'll manifest. But prepare for an out-of-the-blue opportunity to do something big that requires a leap of faith. For clues, look back to a month ago, because this the second of two rare, consecutive Leo new moons (the first was July 23). Events from the first one could pick up speed now. You might also see the continuation of something sparked by the February 10 Leo lunar eclipse. Did you take a risk then or identify a part of your life that needed a big refresh? This will all start to make a lot more sense by January 31, 2018, when a Leo total lunar eclipse brings the past year's growth to another pinnacle. Seeds planted at this month's solar eclipse could blossom in a huge way by then. Take a chance on YOU, Sag.
 
On August 4, your ruling planet, Jupiter, locks into a heated square with shadowy Pluto in your second house of work and money. With expansive Jupiter in your teamwork sector, this showdown can bring power struggles with colleagues, clients or friends. Conflict could erupt over money and a project might break down if people don't carry their fair share of the workload.
 
This is the third and final installment of three Jupiter-Pluto clashes that have erupted in the past eight months—the prior ones were on November 24, 2016, and March 30, 2017. Scroll back to those dates for clues of what could resurface now. And keep in mind that Pluto is your cosmic blind spot. A person who triggers you may actually be mirroring something you need to look at in yourself. You could be forced to deal with a topic you've been avoiding. Coming out of denial can be hard, especially with Jupiter's hard-core way of doling out the unvarnished truth. A reshuffling of your social circle could be in order, or you may need to distance yourself from a jealous and gossiping person. Be vigilant about NOT feeding the rumor mill yourself. If you've fallen into the comparison trap with friends and colleagues, step back and remember your own unique gifts. The only thing you're sure to be the best at is being yourself. People-pleasing and social climbing are SO not becoming of you!
 
Lastly, we get a double header of retrograde (backward) planets this month. Disruptive Uranus, which is in Aries and your expressive, passionate fifth house, makes its annual U-turn from August 2 until January 2. Over the next five months, you'll want to dial down the drama and disruptions. Some Archers thrive on a certain amount of chaos—believe it or not, those unpredictable twists and turns can bring out your best, because you're great at spontaneous solutions. But at a certain point, you may feel like you're always in "crisis mode," putting out five-alarm fires instead of tending to the slow-burning ones you want to keep lit. Step back from situations that deplete your reserves. Since retrogrades bring back the past, a disruptive person, possibly an ex, could resurface. Think twice before engaging, Archer. Watch your own button-pushing antics. There IS such a thing as bad publicity, so don't court attention for attention's sake!
 
Messenger Mercury also turns retrograde from August 12 until September 5, which can affect communication, travel and your digital life. Mercury will backtrack through Virgo and your tenth house of career until August 31, disrupting some of your professional plans or causing mixed signals at work. You may need to hustle to finish up a project that hits an annoying sticking point. Because Mercury retrograde can foil technology, back up important work projects to the cloud and be careful what you post. If you're job hunting, change the privacy settings on your social media profiles, as prospective employers may be checking you out (and they don't need to see your wild, tequila-soaked albums, even if they ARE from 2011). You may clash with a client or colleague during this pivot. To avoid communication breakdowns, check that everyone is on the same page and crystal-clear about their duties. If you're traveling this month, be sure that the troops have impeccable marching orders before you sail off (and prepare to scout the nearest Wi-fi signal just in case).
 
You'll have an easier time once the Sun starts its monthlong journey through Virgo on August 22, putting you in ambitious spirits. Vacation time and Leo season wrap up, and you're ready to lean in to some serious #goals. Even better? Structured Saturn will end its challenging five-month retrograde on August 25. Since April 5, the ringed planet has been reversing through YOUR sign, prompting some serious self-reflection. You may have had to go back to the drawing board, revamping a personal project or evaluating your most fundamental priorities. If a venture stalled or didn't deliver the returns you hoped, sit tight. All those dues you paid could belatedly bear fruit.
 
Saturn is a stern teacher, but not a punisher. Nothing was a waste of time, even if all you gained from it was an invaluable lesson. Keep moving ahead strategically, taking one calculated step at a time. Saturn will make its final departure from Sagittarius this December 19, and it won't return for almost 30 years! The character-building tests have forced you to mature. As a parting gift, Saturn leaves you with a strong and unapologetic sense of your own identity. You can use this to build something of lasting value in the world—exactly what any self-respecting Sagittarius longs to do.
 
Caprocorn
 
Passion! Intensity! Intrigue! August could unfold like a bodice-ripping beach read as the stars turn up the heat. The Sun is in Leo until August 22, blazing a fiery trail through your eighth house of joint ventures, intimacy and merging. You're craving more privacy now, perhaps with the sizzling company of a sexy plus-one. With red-hot Mars riding shotgun in Leo from July 20 to September 5, an attraction could get downright combustible, turning into an epic summer affair. (Watch out: With Mars in this possessive part of your chart, jealousy and obsession can also spike.) A business deal could lead to major money; real estate and legal matters could also be in the spotlight. Dull moments? You might secretly wish for a few more.
 
In true Leo-season form, August is an active month in the stars. There are two game-changing eclipses, two retrogrades and the final installment of a trio of Jupiter-Pluto squares that will keep us all on our toes. It may feel like the only constant is change. While eclipses push us into bold new terrain, rear-facing retrogrades prompt us to slow down, review and reconnect with the past. Give yourself a chance to integrate these huge energy downloads. Ground yourself and stand firm, Cap, as you could be pitched some fastballs.
 
Let's begin with the eclipses, which will fall in Leo (your intimate eighth house) and Aquarius (your practical second house). These eclipses are part of a series running from 2017 to 2019, landing squarely on your money axis, shaking up the way you earn, spend, save, invest and share your resources. Your most intimate relationships could go through a few shifts, coinciding with a renewed sense of self-worth.
  
On August 7, the Aquarius lunar (full moon) eclipse brings a wave of surprising change to your second house of work, money and security. You could get exciting job news, perhaps an out-of-left-field offer that involves relocation or a big lifestyle shift. A project you've been working on since early this year could reach a major turning point. Lunar eclipses can bring endings and manifestations. You could complete a huge project or make a sudden exit from your current line of work. This eclipse also puts the direct spotlight on your money management and budgeting. A new approach to finances may be in order.
 
The August 21 Leo total solar (new moon) eclipse sweeps through your intense eighth house, bringing shifts to your closest relationships and joint finances. This eclipse is the second of two rare, back-to-back Leo new moons (the first was July 23). Events from a month ago could pick up speed. A shared business undertaking might become official, or a relationship could move into permanent status. This has the potential to galvanize engagement, pregnancy or cohabitation plans. You could hear big and unexpected news about an investment or partnership opportunity. But stay tuned: On January 31, 2018, a total LUNAR (full moon) eclipse will bring everything together with an definitive flourish.
 
On August 4, expansive Jupiter in your career sector locks horns in a heated square with calculating Pluto in Capricorn and your first house of identity. It's the final installment in a threesome of intense Jupiter-Pluto squares that have rocked the skies over the past eight months. The last two were on November 24, 2016, and March 30, 2017, so reflect; conflict from these dates could rear its head again.
 
With transformational Pluto is in your assertive first house, you're determined to show the world what you're made of now. Unfortunately, the jarring square to Jupiter could make your approach off-putting, and you could come across as ruthless or self-centered. (Definitely not the look you're going for.) We get it, Capricorn: You're sick and tired of dutifully playing by other people's rules while everyone else just does whatever they want. Although your feelings are valid, your frustration could cause you to act out in rebellious, bridge-burning ways. Work may be the site of this showdown, especially if you've been covering the tracks of a slacking coworker.
 
With Jupiter in your tenth house of men and fathers, a power struggle with your dad or an important guy could send blistering insults flying. If you can't find a responsible or professional way to vent, hold off. You've worked too hard to risk your reputation just to unload this anger. You might feel caged in by convention, wanting to change anything from your appearance to your career path in a quest for more freedom. Just let this energy shake out a little before doing anything permanent.
 
Lastly, we get a double header of retrograde (backward) planets this month. Unpredictable Uranus, which is in Aries and your domestic fourth house, makes its annual U-turn from August 2 until January 2. Over the next five months, your living situation could undergo some serious changes. You might have a rotating cast of roommates or renovations that make it hard to feel settled. A female relative or friend could act in an erratic manner, prompting you to distance yourself. The fourth house rules motherhood, and shock-jock Uranus could bring a surprise pregnancy. An adoption or baby plans could be delayed or interrupted by this backspin. Watch for mama drama with your own mom or a maternal figure.
 
Communicator Mercury turns retrograde from August 12 until September 5, which can disrupt communication, travel and technology. The messenger planet will backspin through Virgo and your worldly ninth house until August 31, which is intensified once the Sun starts its monthlong journey here on August 22. If you're planning a summer vacation, especially overseas, be extra diligent about making sure passports are up to date (and packed!), and guard against potential security breaches on the road. Inform your credit card company and bank of your plans so they don't freeze your card over a "suspicious charge" that YOU make. Arrive early for the airport and pack a spare tire if you’re hitting the road. Not that we hope you end up needing these precautions, but as your fellow Capricorn Benjamin Franklin said, an ounce of preparation is worth a pound of cure.
 
With Mercury retrograde in your outspoken ninth house, you'll want to be extra mindful of what you post and share in the digital space. Maybe it's time for a little media break? Most Capricorns welcome a chance to go offline, but hey, you don't want to end up as the butt of a trending hashtag or Twitter trolling, like Capricorns Donald Trump Jr. and Anthony Scaramucci did last month. None of us REALLY want to read #DonJrChildrensBooks and "dance like no one is watching" again, do we?
 
The month ends with your ruling planet, rigorous Saturn, completing a five-month retrograde through Sagittarius and your twelfth house of hidden agendas, closure and healing. Since April 5, you may have had a few eye-opening moments about the people on Team Capricorn. There could have been a tough betrayal or the hard realization that someone didn't have your back the way you've had theirs. Saturn revealed where boundaries and integrity were a bit too fluid for your liking. This period may have demanded deep inner work, and if you did that, you could emerge feeling rock-solid and ready for anything. If you've been burdened by old baggage or caught in codependent caretaking, it will get easier to say no—which, we'd like to remind you, is a complete sentence. Get back on your healing path by picking up a spiritual study, meditation practice or creative outlet. Committed Saturn will help you make it a regular, non-negotiable part of your life.
 
Whatever you've been working through, there are just a few more months to go. On December 19, Saturn will enter Capricorn, kicking off a new 29-year life cycle. This is THE time to identify what you want to let go of—whether it's a relationship, a self-defeating habit, a limiting belief or a job you no longer love. Working with a therapist or mentor can help you find the courage to stop using this crutch. No more hiding, Capricorn: Your coming-out party is on its way.
 
Aquarius
 
Sit tight, Aquarius: This is the month you've been waiting for. With two life-changing eclipses on the map—one in YOUR sign—your relationships and personal goals are about to get reshuffled. These eclipses will impact your priorities, the people you hang around, your lifestyle and your closest ties. Everything's up for a much-needed renegotiation, and the flurry of activity could leave your life looking dramatically different come September.
 
So much change at once can be disorienting, especially since this month will also feature two retrogrades and the final installment of a triple play of Jupiter-Pluto squares. Give yourself the time and space to integrate. Eclipses can force your hand, but don't rush into decisions that you're not ready to make. But if you've been leaving things in the gray zone past their shelf life, get ready to make a move: You're either in or you're out!
 
Relationships are the headline act this August, as the Sun makes its rounds through Leo and your partnership sector until August 22. You crave the company of people who just GET you—all the better if they balance you out by having complementary skills and personality traits. Teaming up for love, work or a creative collaboration can make this month a memorable one, especially since energizer Mars is riding shotgun, blazing through Leo from July 20 to September 5.
 
Dynamic duos can heat up quickly (and fizzle just as fast) with the mighty Sun and reckless Mars stampeding through this double-your-luck zone. Your patience will be in short supply, and you may catch yourself on the verge of barking orders or snapping at your S.O. On the upside, irascible Mars makes you less tolerant of the slackers and energy vampires who tend to hover around your benevolent sign. Send 'em packing and make space for generous new souls to take their place.
 
Is it time to finally stop biting your tongue? Ready or not, here it comes: On August 4, blunt Jupiter in your outspoken ninth house locks into a heated square with power monger Pluto in Capricorn and your twelfth house of hidden agendas. It's the third in a trio of Jupiter-Pluto squares that have erupted in the past nine months. The last two were on November 24, 2016, and March 30, 2017, so scroll back for clues of what's coming to a head now.
 
Near this date, a power struggle could have the makings of a tabloid-worthy scandal, so be mindful what you share—and with whom. Need to clear the air? Careful, Aquarius. You could be tempted to unleash a dose of brutal honesty, but if your truth serum is spiked with blame or passive-aggressive barbs, an ugly retaliation can ensue. Don't dish it out unless you're prepared to take it. Even if someone comes crawling to you for advice, your best bet is probably to smile and tell them, "I know you'll figure it out. You always do." Got an exciting project in the works? Keep it under wraps. A jealous or critical person could take the wind out of your sails. It's not time to solicit feedback.
 
Next up we have the eclipses, which will fall on the Leo/Aquarius axis. These eclipses are part of a series running from 2017 to 2019, which are reshuffling the balance between "me" and "we" in your life. The first one, a lunar eclipse, came on February 10 of this year, so you should already be feeling the winds of change in your personal goals and closest partnerships.
 
On August 7, the Aquarius lunar (full moon) eclipse hosts a cosmic coming-out party for you, as it puts the spotlight directly on your first house of identity, appearances and bold initiatives. The eclipse could propel you to make major move on your own behalf, one that completely alters something in your life in short order. You're ready to shed a part of yourself, whether that's a few inches of hair or an attitude that's holding you back, and the change-making eclipse will help you release it. You've reached the precipice, Aquarius—now jump! Since eclipses bring surprises, you could find yourself suddenly at the epicenter of a big project or event. Prepare yourself for the spotlight, because attention is headed your way. Knowing this, be mindful of what kind of responses you court, Aquarius. There IS such a thing as bad publicity, and you could just as easily attract that. But if you work these energies to your advantage, you could make a HUGE splash.
 
Relationships reach a turning point at the August 21 total solar (new moon) eclipse in Leo, which will activate your committed partnership house. Solar eclipses bring bold beginnings, and things could move rapidly toward official status. You could feel a spark with someone—whether it's a meeting of the minds OR the hearts—and things could escalate rapidly. Look to events of a month ago for synergies that could sizzle: The Leo eclipse is the second of two rare, back-to-back Leo new moons (the first was July 23). But events will really come together around January 31, 2018, when a Leo total lunar eclipse—the corresponding full moon—brings all this to a head. You're laying the foundation for powerful alliances now. The Leo eclipse can spark a chance meeting, so follow any hunches to reach out to someone. Check your DMs and inbox because there could be an exciting message waiting. Answer quick because you never know where this could lead.
 
Lastly, we get a double header of retrograde (backward) planets this month. Disruptive Uranus, your cosmic ruler, makes its annual U-turn from August 2 until January 2 in Aries and your communication house. Over the next five months, be mindful of your messaging. If you've been oversharing on social media, go live offline for a spell. Pick your battles and be selective about the company you keep. Distance yourself from dramatic friends who can't consistently be there for you. You're the last one to demand round-the-clock attention, Aquarius, but if someone can't even come through in tough times, direct your precious time and energy elsewhere.
 
Mental Mercury turns retrograde from August 12 until September 5, which can interfere with communication, travel and technology. Mercury will backtrack through Virgo and your intimate eighth house, possibly bringing back an old flame or provoking an unresolved power struggle. The Sun is also in Virgo from August 22 on, dialing up the behind-the-scenes action. For couples, this could be a time of below-the-belt fighting or steamy sexual reconnection (we recommend the latter).
 
Don't be surprised if you hear from someone intense from your past. Is it time to clear the air for once and for all? Maybe. Think twice before opening the door to anyone who leaves your life in emotional disarray. If you're still online, keep your privacy settings high, because Mercury's backspin through this confidential zone could signal identity theft and other online hacking. Itching to tell a secret? With the messenger planet gone rogue, you don't want to become tomorrow's gossip headlines. Turn to trusted confidantes only and be careful what you put in writing. One accidental group text or "reply all" could leave you with a messy cleanup. 
 
The month ends with structured Saturn completing a five-month retrograde in Sagittarius and your eleventh house of teamwork. From April 5 to August 25, the ringed taskmaster reverses through this zone, stalling collaborations and delaying launches, especially ones that involve technology. During this time you may find it harder than usual to round up support for your ideas or to keep a team motivated. Once Saturn corrects course, you can get everyone back to the starting blocks, on their marks and ready to spring into action.
 
Pisces
 
Gather those loose ends and bring some order back to your life, Pisces. The Sun is making its annual trek through Leo and your sixth house of health, organization and systems. You're ready to dial down the intensity (even the fun kind) and simplify, getting life back into a steadier, more manageable groove.
 
Not that there will be too many dull moments. August is a bustling month in the heavens. There are two game-changing eclipses, two retrogrades and the final installment of a triad of Jupiter-Pluto squares that will keep us all on our toes. It may feel like the only constant is change. While eclipses push us into bold new terrain, rear-facing retrogrades prompt us to slow down, review and reconnect with the past. Pace yourself and leave plenty of room to integrate these huge energy downloads.
 
With energizer Mars joining the Sun in Leo from July 20 to September 5, stress can spike quickly, especially if you bite off more than you can chew—which you're prone to doing with hyperactive Mars here. Disperse that palpable tension into enough physical and mental outlets instead of whipping yourself into a neurotic frenzy. Exercise is a must. Take breaks from your extreme strategy sessions for a fitness class or a trail run to clear your head. Get outside and let Mother Nature absorb your anxiety. Eat live, fresh foods and avoid the processed junk. Remember this: "Worrying is like praying for what you don't want." Direct your thoughts with intention, Pisces.
 
The eclipses are harbingers of major change—ready or not. This month's life-altering lunations fall on the Leo/Aquarius axis, part of a series touching down in these signs from 2017 to 2019. They will revamp the balance between your practical sixth house and your ethereal twelfth, reshuffling your approach to health, fitness, spirituality, work, time management and creativity. If you're a Pisces dreamer, you may be forced to become more grounded. If you're constantly anxious, you'll find new paths to inner peace. You may also discover a vital need for better boundaries, as your giving sign can easily veer into caretaking and overfunctioning. The eclipses help you break free of codependent leanings.
 
Have you been dealing with a health issue? These eclipses are revealing the link between your physical and emotional states and prompting you to find practitioners who truly understand your body's needs. A doctor who practices integrative medicine may be a good fit. But tread carefully, as eclipses can also bring confusing information. Read patient reviews and interview candidates thoroughly to make sure you'll have an empowered doctor-patient relationship.
 
Two interesting reads on the side of self-healing are Dr. Joe Dispenza's You Are the Placebo and Dr. Lissa Rankin's Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself. They each make a compelling case for the power of mindset and how it plays into the healing process. (Note: Both are classically trained medical doctors with a strong scientific background, and we are not. If you are having ANY symptoms, please go directly to a doctor, as we do not have the credentials to mete out medical advice.)
 
On August 7, the Aquarius lunar (full moon) eclipse illuminates your twelfth house of closure, healing and spirituality. Lunar eclipses can bring everything to a swift turning point or ending. If you've been clinging to an outmoded situation or relationship, you may have no choice but to release your grip—asap. You could have a potent flash of intuition or a strong deja vu. That said, eclipses can be disorienting, so don't take any "signs" or "messages" too literally. Keep yourself in a serene state and slow down to stay centered. Try to steer clear of mind-altering substances, as this intensifying eclipse makes it easy to surpass your limits without realizing it. Find your escape through music, dance and art. Meditation and spirituality can also be anchoring—and productive, as your manifesting powers are dialed up high today. Vision board party, anyone?
 
For some Pisces, this lunar eclipse could be a wakeup call to quit a self-destructive habit for once and for all. You might seek treatment or enter recovery. Many born under the sign of the Fish work in the wellness and "energy medicine" fields. During this eclipse cycle, you may pursue certification or gain the courage to open a practice. While this eclipse makes you receptive and open, guard against gullibility. This eye-opening investigative piece about the "wellness epidemic" gives a sharp and cautionary POV on the modern health craze. The key: Don't hand your power to anyone—and we mean anyone—even as you open yourself to hearing what they have to say. Take it all in, then journal or meditate or sleep on it (whatever your sacred, right-brained Pisces process may be) before making any decisions.
 
The August 21 Leo total solar (new moon) eclipse brings a bold beginning to your sixth house of health, work and organization. It's the second of two rare, back-to-back Leo new moons (the first was July 23). Events from a month ago could pick up speed. Maybe you interviewed for a job or scouted assistants to help systematize your life but nothing happened. News or a decision could arrive now. Since the sixth house also rules pets, you may adopt a cuddly creature near this date. Think rescue animal over puppy mill! You might make a bold lifestyle change, revamping your fitness and exercise habits, perhaps with doctor's orders. This eclipse can also help greatly with stress management.
 
Another reason to keep your wits about you: August 4 brings the third installment in a trio of intense squares between outspoken Jupiter in your intimate eighth house and calculating Pluto in your friendship and technology sector. For the past eight months, these two luminaries have been circling each other suspiciously. Their two other clashes were on November 24 and March 30, so reflect on events from those dates. The tension could reach its peak—and hopefully bring a resolution that doesn't turn a collaboration into a casualty.
 
Be careful about mixing money and friendship, sex and friendship, business and friendship…you get the idea. Overconfident Jupiter can tempt you to blur those lines, but shadowy Pluto's presence indicates that you could get yourself in over your head by being too trusting. In love, your most intimate ties might be rocked by possessiveness, and the slightest hint of smothering could send you dashing for freedom. Power struggles can erupt in your social circle, perhaps with a jealous frenemy who seems hellbent on undermining you. At work, team efforts could be thwarted by rivalries or someone's shady behavior. Be vigilant and don't take the bait. Shield your energetic field; you might even carry a crystal as a means of protection if dealing with difficult people today.
 
Lastly, we get a double header of retrograde (backward) planets this month. Disruptive Uranus, which is in Aries and your second house of work and money, makes its annual U-turn from August 2 until January 2. Over the next five months, reduce risk and avoid situations that feel like too much of a gamble. Uranus' fluctuations can bring money-making opportunities, but while it's retrograde, they could take longer to materialize. A side hustle could keep you afloat during the interim. Be conservative with your cash flow and cut extraneous costs. (Do you really need all those subscriptions?) If you're job hunting, go back to former employers and colleagues, as retrogrades are positive times to connect with the past. Maybe one of them has a short-term freelance gig. Since Uranus rules technology, this is also a good time to get your social media and tech skills up to par. An online training or certification course could position you for better opportunities.
 
Communicator Mercury will also be retrograde from August 12 until September 5, which can disrupt communication, travel and technology. Mercury is reversing through Virgo and your partnership house until August 31, which could provoke vexing quarrels with romantic and business partners alike. Slow down and really listen to what people are saying before you jump to conclusions (and down their throats). Bring more equality into your relationships if the give-and-take has tipped off-balance. With the Sun entering Virgo for a month on August 22, your closest bonds will take precedence. Reconnect with people from your inner circle and do repair work on any shaky ties.
 
An important person, possibly an ex, could resurface from your past. Don't take this as an immediate sign that you're meant to reunite, though. With messenger Mercury at the wheel, this person could simply reappear as a sort of karmic reminder: Is there a sacred part of yourself you've abandoned or a passion project you need to pick up again? Maybe you need to connect with the vibrant spirit you were back when this person was in your life (more curious, an intrepid traveler, creatively woke). This could also be an opportunity for closure, to release lingering pieces from that relationship—or put the torch out for good.
 
Career challenges clear up at month's end—and not a moment too soon. On August 25, structured Saturn ends a five-month retrograde through Sagittarius and your professional tenth house. Since April 5, the ringed taskmaster has been backspinning through this zone, making it tough to gain traction on a big project. It was hard to feel inspired by work in some cases—or to even stay motivated and productive. Your relationship with your father or an important man could also have been tested by Saturn's reversal. Any grand goals that weren't constructed on terra firm got the kibosh by inspector Saturn, since he demands an impeccable plan before giving the green light. At work, you may have been sent back to the drawing board or felt blocked by maddening bureaucracy.
 
With Saturn moving ahead—and completing its three-year tour of your career house on December 19 (amen!)—your good-hearted efforts should gain momentum. You could finally have the guts to leave a draining position, stepping into a role of authority elsewhere. Long-overdue recognition may arrive, proving that your efforts weren't in vain after all. Pisces who have put in the time and due diligence may be rewarded with a promotion or a leadership role. Polish up your profiles—the headhunter could be calling soon.
