You’re drawing your loved ones close. Once you feel more secure you are more open to reaching out to the broader world. It’s not that you mean to be stand-offish, it’s just that you know your tribe. Those lucky enough to be in the Scorpio gang will feel deeply loved and cared for, but once you’ve completed important commitments to loved ones, you’re ready to consider some exciting possibilities and people. It’s looking likely by the new Moon on the 27th, you’ll be stepping into a new social whirl.

Matters of the heart

While it’s true that those in partnerships are unwilling to compromise, those who are fancy-free are enjoying some marvellous opportunities and magical moments. New faces and places beckon and a holiday romance is an enticing prospect. Ironically, for those in committed relationships, you will feel the tug of homesickness if you do go away. Love will become more intense as the month progresses and when Uranus begins its retrograde journey from the 24th, you may find yourself second-guessing significant others, or even your own attitude to entwinements. Keep things free and flexible until you’ve sorted your head out.

Luck and cash

You’re amping up the charm in your work and professional life in the latter part of August and this is not a bad month to ask for raise or go for a promotion. Bosses are loving your assured take, whether it’s in customer-facing roles or general schmoozing. In fact, a brilliant Venus/Jupiter aspect on the 18th ensures you truly compete with the best of them. You are also determined to sort out any joint financial conundrums and you’ll be assertive too!

Be sure to…

…sort out all those home chores you’ve been putting off. It will make you feel so much better mentally once you have ticked off those half-finished jobs.


Your ruling planet says: ‘I am helping you activate positive change! Thanks to alliances with Mercury and Mars, communication in partnerships and groups is boosted.’
