Whether or not you believe in the stars, horoscopes or astrology, monthly forecasts usually resonate in some way. Our regular star-sign forecasts by Sharan (tarotbysharan.com) are actually based on tarot, so they’re a little bit different. We’ve been a fan of Sharan for years, so, if you’re in need of a little guidance, she might just be the card for you!
Leo (23 Jul – 22 Aug)
It’s been all work and no play for some time for Leo. However, things are about to change. There is celebration this month, perhaps a romantic getaway with the love of your life. You are making a conscious effort to create a bit more balance between your work life and play life. Life has become very imbalanced and it doesn’t feel healthy to carry on the way you have. Hence, reorganising your time will become a priority this August.
Virgo (23 Aug – 22 Sep)
You are on a mission this month. Your true Virgo personality is put on display in August. A new job, collaboration or business is on the cards. You have put on your methodical and meticulous hat and dug in deep to make things a success. If you’re new at your job this month, you can expect to shine. If it’s a business, you’ll be putting on a very impressive show for your partners or customers. Whatever you achieve this month will definitely lead to more growth in the months ahead! But always trust your intuition and don’t let greed get ahead of you.
Libra (23 Sep – 22 Oct)
While there is good news this month, it doesn’t feel like you want to be standing at the top of the building and shouting about it. Instead, you choose to keep your cards close to your chest. You’re going to practice managing your emotions and trying to contain your happiness and excitement about things – simply because you feel it isn’t the right time to share it yet. It’s going to be a hard month, trying to control your chatty nature and unfiltered manner of speech, but it’s got to be done!
Scorpio (23 Oct – 21 Nov)
This month, you’ll find yourself planting the seed for a longterm gain or you may begin to see that gain unfold. It’s the kind of fulfilment that you have longed for for quite some time and, with this, you can finally see things moving in the direction that you’ve hoped for. It’s a start, slowly but surely. After a long while, you begin to feel like you are in control of things again.
Sagittarius (22 Nov – 21 Dec)
There’s quite an interesting month ahead for Sagittarius. You are sharpening your intuition by paying more attention to it and strategizing your moves with it. There are opportunities around but you are being careful with what you go with; they need to resonate with you and you must feel comfortable with it. The key this August is to work with what you already know. It may be worth building upon your existing knowledge, too, through a course or mentoring.
Capricorn (22 Dec – 19 Jan)
The hardworking and industrious Capricorn never stops learning new skills or picking up new knowledge. You seem to be taking a little pause this month to do just that – either furthering your skills or studying. Nothing is ever done just for fun with you; it’s always part of a bigger plan! Things may start off based on an emotional attraction, but you will definitely find a way to put into practice what you have picked up in the near future. You don’t like waste and efficiency; productivity is what you work towards.
Aquarius (20 Jan – 18 Feb)
You have a reason to rejoice and celebrate this month. Your sharpness and say-it-as-it-is attitude coupled with your pragmatism, thoroughness and methodical approach to life overall pay off. You are recognised for your structure, reliability and authority in your subject. If it’s a business you’re building, or if you’re starting a new role, expect to be in the good books of your suppliers, customers, superiors and colleagues. Well done, you!
Pisces (19 Feb – 20 Mar)
It’s a fantastic month ahead for you, Pisces. Finances, work and family couldn’t be in a better place. You have finally managed to juggle everything – even if it was hard work getting to where you are now. But you are certainly the epitome of a balanced life this August. Kudos to you!
Aries (21 Mar – 19 Apr)
Things aren’t going as you’ve hoped. There is an air of letdown and disappointment this month as you try to reinstate some losses by going back to a tried and tested method. You may experience writer’s block or the loss of some finances due to bad investments that you’d hoped would allow you to treat yourself and the family. So you will take the route of doing what you know best rather than experimenting. Or look for ways to spread your eggs across several baskets. It will be a lesson that you’re going to learn well this month.
Taurus (20 Apr – 20 May)
Your bull-like demeanour is going to be a little shaken this month, and your ability to balance your heart and mind may be tested as you allow emotions to take over for a change. It may not be such a bad thing – just another line of lessons you have to go through. Perhaps you just need to give yourself a chance to “feel the feels”. If it’s grief you’re experiencing, it may be the right time to let things out. Or, if you’ve reached a low point in your life, it’s fine to give yourself a duvet day or a week to process your emotions. It’s just going to be one of those months where you can’t keep hiding from things; you just have to face up to them and deal with them.
Gemini (21 May – 20 Jun)
Things as you know them will come tumbling down this month. This will add to your confusion, and you can expect disappointments when what you thought will be doesn’t turn out the way you had hoped. You may find yourself having to help those around you in the same predicament and being required to hold the fort. And you may be the one that people turn to for advice on what to do next. If so, your expertise, knowledge and intuition will be held in high regard.
Cancer (21 Jun – 22 Jul)
You’ll be seeing your wishes come true this month. However, there is uncertainty around this unfolding. Should you accept the goodness that has come about? Or decline it because deep down inside you aren’t sure if you deserve this? You may have met the love of your life – someone you feel could be your prospective husband or wife – yet have cold feet about moving your relationship to that next level. Or, you could be presented with an opportunity to pursue your calling yet be unsure if you’re in that space in your life to accept it. The truth about your inability to embrace this goodness will come to the surface this month. And it will come down to your self-worth.
