Your Monthly Horoscopes: August 2018

Horoscopes

Get ready for a month of Leo willpower as the July 27th lunar eclipse, and simultaneous blood red full moon put a reset on all of our relationships, boundaries, motivations, and awareness of self. July was a fast-moving month, and time seems to be more than just flying! We have all been prepared for a just as constructive, "run and gun," abundance-filled August.


The eclipse experience is not finished, as there is a partial solar eclipse happening in Leo on August 11th at 19 degrees. This is exciting because it will bring us a boost self-confidence, fire energy, fated romantic, and platonic meetings, as well an inclination to enjoy this final summer month; so make sure you break out that fire outfit, pair of shoes, or bikini that you have been waiting all summer to wear!

Once Mercury comes out of retrograde on the 19th, the universe ain't done with us yet. The personal planet that is the tumultuous Mars, is turning direct this month, but we have a quick buffer before that happens with an ethereal, spiritual, and extremely lucky trine communication of Jupiter in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces - all happening on August 19th. When two planets are trine, they are in their highest-vibe state of synchronicity. Overall, this trine between these planets represent a theme of accepting what is, letting go, and moving forward. If there have been any personal issues, financial setbacks, sexual blockages, or a lack of spiritual clarity, whatever the eclipses and retrogrades have not taken care of so far, this trine will seal the deal.

Mars returning from retrograde from Aquarius to Capricorn will catch all of the people who slipped in between the cracks of the trines with bizarre and unexpected Aquarius-like manifestations in your reality, that will surely set you back on the right routine, and structured Capricorn path.

Now that you have a good idea of what is going on with the planets, click through the gallery below to see the most important energetic themes that will affect your life by your zodiac sign for the month of August 2018:

Aries

Starting on the 11th, with the partial solar eclipse, many Aries signs will be feeling the weight of their own hang-ups, gripes, and self-imposed burdens. Wherever you might have been making it hard on yourself, by 1) overworking yourself when it is unnecessary, 2) becoming disappointed over your own unrealistic expectations due to perfectionism, and 3) not giving yourself the utmost attention and self-care necessary to be productive, will be checked by the eclipse.

You will likely have your sights on your ultimate good, but you won't get there until you take a look at your current self-reflection.

When it comes to the trine in Scorpio and Jupiter, Aries will likely be pleasantly surprised with unexpected messages or opportunities to expand financially, or partner up with new people in business. This could be just the opportunity you have been looking for that puts you ahead of the game. Be sure to thoroughly analyze any opportunity that comes your way in a timely fashion, as well as feel out the energy of the people that you could be working with. Though these connections could be temporary, incoming short-term opportunities could result in your big break.

The trine of Neptune in Pisces will affect the Aries' emotions the most. If you are single, there could be an influx of romantic activity that could fizzle out just as quick as they start, or could be the beginning of an end of the summer fling turned love affair. Take everything romantically with a grain of salt. If you are in a relationship, don't be surprised if emotions run deep, raw, and wild - causing a ripple in your bond that ultimately might start out rough, but bring you both closer together.

Finally, Mars going direct will mean the beginning of a new cycle. You might want to get back on the ball with whatever you have been sleeping on, or you might have a strong urge to "get your ish together." Things will begin to manifest very quickly in your reality if you set your intentions for growth, and progression of your highest and greatest good. One thing is for sure, however...nothing will change if you don't initiate a start.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
