Cancer August 2017 Monthly Horoscope
On August 25th, Venus enters fire sign Leo, the sign after yours, and you can enjoy relaxing, indulging, and getting in touch with your senses. You can be more sensual in love, and want more of a physical connection. If single, you may want someone you feel is reliable and secure, and if attached, you may want your partner to splurge on you and you splurge on them.
On August 3rd, Uranus turns retrograde (appears to move backward) in fire sign Aries, and over the coming months, you may struggle with making changes with your goals and direction, and may feel restless and want to jump at changes with your direction, or you can experience changes with your goals that you need to adjust to.
On August 25th, Saturn ends his retrograde in fire sign Sagittarius, and over the last few months, you may have struggled with feeling more restricted and limited with your work life, daily life, or health, and now that the retrograde is ending, you can work to gain more control over your work, get better organized with daily life, and be more responsible with your health.
August brings with it a Mercury retrograde starting August 12th in earth sign Virgo. A planet is called retrograde when it appears to be moving backward; it isn’t actually moving backward, it only looks that way from our view here on Earth. Retrogrades can throw things off, and with this retrograde, you can experience issues with communication, finding it hard to be understood or to understand others, or to be open with what’s on your mind. You may lack focus and are interested in too much, changing your mind constantly or not making a decision. This can be a good time to focus on old ideas and old plans though. The Sun enters Virgo on August 22nd while Mercury is retrograde in Virgo, and brings more attention to the retrograde energy, showing us what we need to see in order to make things better. Mercury is retrograde in Virgo until August 31st, and goes back into Leo, and you may struggle with being too stubborn, stuck in place, experience a financial issue, or feel insecure. Mercury retrogrades in Leo for the first week of September, and we can start getting back to normal mid-September.
August also brings the second set of eclipses for 2017. Eclipses are similar to new and full moons, but amplified, impacting for up to six months before and after. Lunar eclipses are similar to full moons, and solar eclipses are similar to new moons. On August 7th, a lunar eclipse occurs in air sign Aquarius, and you may be forced to deal with an issue you hold deep inside of yourself and would rather not deal with, but you have to so you can work on the problems and let it go. You may be more serious and focus on serious matters, and you can have less patience for anything silly. You may need to work on letting loose a little, otherwise you can be very emotionally intense. On August 21st, a solar eclipse occurs in Leo, and you can work on bringing stability and security into your life, and improve your financial situation. You can take advantage of opportunities to improve your security, especially financially, and this can be a good eclipse to pursue financial ventures. You can benefit from making the most of your resources with these eclipses, and you can bring more resources into your life. This is also a good time to take time and enjoy the moment.
