As August begins, Venus links benevolently with Mars, its compliment, on Friday the 2nd, to form a sextile. This influence will last for two weeks and favors love, booty calls, and new friendships. In a sexual relationship, balance is manifested by the ability to give and receive equally. You may feel extra creative. Get together with friends for a party or night out and you'll be attractive to the exact people you want to attract.
Just before the New Moon on Tuesday, the 6th, the sun trines with Uranus, the planet of revolution, and you'll be successful in every new encounter. Now's the time to make changes that will make your life better later on: breaking unhealthy habits or acting upon a brilliant idea to make money. This is not the time for insecurity; pursue new ideas and follow your hunches. Seize new opportunities before they pass you by. On Wednesday the 8th, benevolent Jupiter opposes Pluto, the planet of power and riches, and sometimes there is an immense drive to gain power and struggles could ensue.
Aries (March 21–April 9)
Express your thoughts, but be sensitive, because if you're not careful, you might come off as a very poor listener.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
You may have to communicate with one of your parents or grandparents in order to find out more about a past event that is bothering you.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Avoid coming to any important decisions this week, because your thoughts are racing right now — as if the electricity were suddenly turned on in your mind.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
You may be shopping a lot, or entering into an important business negotiation. Either way, you should be able to make the situation work out the way you want.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Keep your active mind occupied with useful projects, because you can get a lot done right now.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
You may want to be alone to think or study. Try meditating.
Libra (September 23–October 22)
Sharing your problems with friends will be especially helpful in reaching an objective viewpoint.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
Talk to your boss about how you may advance in your job. This may be a good time to angle for a promotion.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Try to encounter as many different ways of living as you can, because you're totally open to alternative lifestyles at this time.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
This transit often triggers conversations that have a profound effect, causing you to go deep within yourself.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
This is a good time to discuss any difficulties that have come up in your intimate relationships.
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Your anxiety this week may make you become obsessed with your health and hygiene.
