Libra August Horoscope

In July the planetary power shifted to the East – the sector of Self. And while this sector is not dominant it is as strong as it will be this year. You are in a period of maximum independence. Your Western, social sector is equally strong, but not as much as it was earlier in the year. So, you’re trying to balance your interests with those of others. If there are conditions that irk you, that need to be changed, this is the time to do it. (Next month too.) Your interests are important, as are others’. You are not selfish for thinking of your own interests.

The month ahead is basically happy and healthy. There is only one long-term planet in stressful alignment with you but it receives no support from the short-term planets. Health should be good. This might not be the best month for tests or procedures, as your health planet is retrograde and receiving stressful aspects. (In fact, half the planets are in retrograde motion.) This situation often produces wrong diagnoses. If you need these procedures, schedule them for another time. Wait until the planets start moving forward again.

The spiritual life is the main headline this month. Your 12th house of spirituality is chock-full of planets – 40 per cent, sometimes 50 per cent of the planets are there or move through there. A very high proportion. So, this is a month for making spiritual – interior – progress. It is a month for spiritual revelation and for spiritual breakthroughs. These revelations and breakthroughs will help you financially and in love. The message of the Horoscope is, get right spiritually and love and money will take care of themselves.

Though your financial planet Pluto is still retrograde, he is receiving very positive aspects this month. While earnings can be slow in coming, they are larger than last month. The 11th and 12th seems especially good financially.

Venus, the ruler of your Horoscope, has her solstice from the 16th to the 19th. She pauses in the heavens (in latitude) and then changes direction. So it is with you. There is a pause in your affairs and then a change of direction.

Mercury will have his solstice – his latitudinal pause – from the 28th to the 30th. This can bring a spiritual pause and change of direction. These pauses are nothing to fear. They refresh you. They are natural. A brief siesta from your activities.
