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:

Leo

Leos! This is your season! The August 11th Eclipse will definitely have you feeling hype because this is your sign's season, and though your solar return is upon you, having fun should only be one part of your goal. This year in particular, is a very important year for personal evaluation, as well as emotional and soul evolution and growth. Whatever is going on externally, is a reflection of your internal well-being. If you are not experiencing the life you truly want to create for yourself, you must go within, with the purpose of clearing emotional and energetic blockages.

A lot of changes could be coming that require you to find balance internally and externally.

The conversation that Jupiter is having with Scorpio will have many Leos understanding that they need to make an effort to stop any habits, codependency, or negative thought and behavior patterns in order to move forward. Many of you will hypothetically put yourselves on "time out," or give yourself pep talks in the mirror every morning, encouraging you to stay on track with whatever you have been working on. Your ego will most certainly be mischievous around this time if you let it!

The trine of Neptune in Pisces will double down on whatever needs to end in you life. What you previously have been over the moon and in the stars about, could prove to be a big illusion, that you can finally see through. How have you grown through and pass the old you?

Are you ready to transcend the caterpillar and cocoon phase at whatever juncture you are in currently, and metamorphosize into a beautiful butterfly?

Finally, Mars going direct from Aquarius to Capricorn will will triple down on changes you begin to make in your life. It could all start with an abrupt, or sudden, reality check that causes you to think about things differently and want to change your course. This could lead to ending any vicious cycles in your life that has drained your energy, or disconnecting from people that no longer serve your highest and greatest good. Anyone or thing that has been deceptive in your world, will likely be made known. It will take your own courage and Leo strength to walk away.

Can we talk about how Megan Thee Stallion is lowkey an inspirational speaker? I mean seriously, have you ever been feeling down on yourself and then "Girls in the Hood" starts playing? It's like, OK girl, get it together, you're a Queen. From beats and bars to catchy lyrics, she's gonna deliver. But musical talent isn't the only thing that deserves acknowledgment. Sis is also about her bag. The "Savage" rapper has collaborations with multiple brands like Cash App, Revel, and recently announced, Nike.

Like many, I was introduced to Tiffany Haddish when I went to see the hilarious film Girls Trip. I came into the theatre expecting to chuckle a bit and just enjoy a movie night. But little did I know, this was a film I'd be watching so many more times and that would put Tiffany on the map as a breakout star. From start to finish, I laughed hysterically and even spent the evening with one of my girlfriends, sharing and reflecting on our own college memories. Fast forward to today, Tiffany Haddish is an Emmy- and Grammy-winning household name.
