Aquarius August Horoscope

The cosmic slowdown increases this month. Half the planets are retrograde and we are still not at the maximum for the year (this will happen next month). So be patient, especially in financial and personal matters.

Uranus, the ruler of your Horoscope, goes retrograde on the 20th and will be retrograde for the rest of the year. Right now, this is a good thing. Self-confidence, self-will and self-esteem are not that important. You’re in a social period just now. The planetary power is mostly in the Western social sector of your chart. So, let others have their way, as long as it isn’t destructive. Goals are attained through the good graces of others and not so much by personal initiative (or even personal merit).

This can be a complication in love as you’re not sure what you want. The love life is generally good this month – you have plenty of opportunities – but you seem undecided about things.

You’re still in a yearly love and social peak until the 23rd. Even afterwards the love life is good and opportunities are there. On the 23rd the love needs change. Sexual magnetism now seems the paramount factor. This period seems sexually active. One of the pitfalls to avoid is excessive (and destructive) criticism. You tend to perfectionism in love after the 23rd and can magnify little flaws into big ones. You can react too much from the head and not from the heart. Analysis tends to kill the magic of romance. If you can avoid this – avoid judgement and destructive criticism – the love life will be good.

Health will improve after the 23rd as well. You can enhance it further in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.

Finances are more stressful after the 23rd. Not only is your financial planet Neptune retrograde, but it also receives stressful aspects. Earnings will happen but with more work and effort involved. If you put in the work, prosperity will happen – but more slowly than usual.

The spouse, partner or current love has a great financial month. This should cover your challenges. He or she seems generous this month.

The top half of your chart – the day side – is dominant now. Family is important, but it is time to focus on the career and your outer goals. Career seems successful this month, but things can happen with a delayed reaction – your career planet, Pluto, is still retrograde.
