Leo August 2017 Monthly Horoscope
Venus enters your sign, Leo, on August 25th, and you can be more open with affection, more loving and charming, and you can demand more attention. In love, you may want your partner to focus more on you, if attached, and if single, you can enjoy getting attention from others, and may bask in that.
Uranus turns retrograde (appears to move backward) in fellow fire sign Aries starting August 3rd, and over the coming months, you may struggle with making changes to expand, explore, and have new experiences, and can feel restless and crave freedom, but need to avoid being impulsive to get it.
Saturn ends his retrograde August 25th in fellow fire sign Sagittarius, and over the last few months, you may have struggled with feeling restricted and limited with your loved ones, in love, and with creativity, but now that the retrograde is ending, you can start to find more movement and feel less restricted.
August brings with it a Mercury retrograde starting August 12th in earth sign Virgo, the sign after yours. 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 financial issues, so make sure you’ve got a rainy day fund, and go over your budget before the retrograde starts and stick to it. You can be more stubborn, or may deal with more stubborn people, and you may feel stuck where you are, which can drive you bonkers. You may feel insecure, and can easily be wounded by the words of others, to work on strengthening yourself and being more confident. The Sun enters Virgo on August 22nd while Mercury is retrograde in Virgo, and the Sun brings more of a focus on what is missing and what you need to work on to make things better. Mercury is retrograde in Virgo until August 31st, and goes back into your sign, Leo, and you may feel like every little thing is going wrong, you feel extra stressed, and can have a lot more communication problems, and patience is required. 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. A lunar eclipse occurs in air sign Aquarius, the sign opposite yours, on August 7th, and you can focus on your relationships and the people in your life, putting them under the microscope to see if the relationship is positive and healthy, have issues but can be mended, or is too far one to save and needs to be let go of. You may see someone leave your life, and can be more emotional with others. You may be a little more indecisive as well, and work on making more compromises to keep the peace. You may feel you need more peace in order to feel secure emotionally. A solar eclipse occurs on August 21st in Leo, and this can be a great time for you, Leo. This is a time for new beginnings, fresh starts, and a focus on new opportunities that you want to take advantage of. You can be much more enthusiastic, positive, and energized, especially once the Mercury retrograde is ending. Make the most of it!
