August 2020 Horoscope

Happy birthday, Leo! After exiting Cancer season on July 22, we’re moving into an exciting time of the year. Summer is starting to wind down, and we’re exiting a time of deep reflection. In Leo season, we’ll emerge anew, refreshed, and energized to boldly go in a brand new direction. If you’re feeling tired of what feels like the 2020 standstill, August is on your side, encouraging new beginnings.  With the sun in Leo for most of the month, new energy is plentiful. The month begins with a full moon in Aquarius on August 3, the perfect time to seek clarity on unanswered questions. Through August 18 (new moon in Leo), we will constantly be reflecting on personal choices and a little vain as we wonder what the people around us are thinking. Although it might feel like a confusing time, it is the perfect time to examine personal truths and make way for personal development.  Keep reading below to see what August has in store for your sign! We break it down into “houses” this month, which means the areas you’re likely to see some action. And of course, check out your intuitively connected MONQ blend.

Important Dates

Aries the Ram: March 21 – April 19

Aries, we know you might feel a little competitive with Leo this month. After all, you’re similar. That makes Leo season the perfect time for you to take action. Jump into that book you didn’t read or an idea that never came to fruition. When Mercury joins the sun in Leo on August 4, you’re going to have some cosmic help in making that dream come true.  Your love life may also receive a boost around the 18th, because you will be feeling extra frisky and up for fun. This is a good time to be your charming and fiery self, and cozy up to someone you care about! If you’re single, take advantage of the forecast and cultivate a new romance that has been on your mind for some time.  Sexy is your blend this month. We know that YOU know you’re sexy. Enough said.

taurus august horoscopeTaurus the Bull: April 20 – May 20

Goals, goals, goals! Last month was all about growth for Taurus, and we’re amping it up even more in August. You will remain energized and concentrate on developments in business. If you didn’t make time to ask for a promotion last month, consider it now, but do it before August 15, because that’s when Uranus begins its annual retrograde. After this time, your clarity may wane.  But there is good news! As the sun moves into Virgo around August 22, you will feel like your steady self again. This is also a good month to check up on your friendships. Call someone you haven’t spoken to in a while and let them know that you still need them in your life. Your friendship will be greatly appreciated and reciprocated.  Focus is your August blend. Amp it up with Focus+. Focus on one thing at a time, and you will persevere. 

Gemini the Twins: May 21 – June 20 

Feeling green, Gemini? You should, because August is your month to make some serious money moves. You might be compelled to make a serious investment or finally get to work growing your side hustle. If a friend comes to you for money, be generous, but don’t let it deplete your reserves.  When the sun enters Virgo this month, you will be all about cozying up into domestic life. Family will be the name of the game. Spend some much-needed quality time with your siblings (or the people who feel like siblings!). A movie night in with popcorn and good conversation will be all that you need to feel comforted and loved.  Love is your blend this month. You’re sharing it and receiving it from expected and unexpected places.

cancer august horoscopeCancer the Crab: June 21 – July 22

Okay, okay. Uranus in retrograde is going to make you feel like pouting, Cancer. You will want to retreat into yourself and ignore the world. The new moon on the 18th will help you draw out of it, and with Venus moving through your sign all month long, you shouldn’t hide. Your gorgeousness is going to be on serious display, and you might not even know it yet.  This is also a great month to wipe the slate clean and start anew. Looking at the world with a new perspective is just what you need. You will receive new messages about relationships, especially your friends. With fall just around the corner, you will be inspired to rearrange your home and prepare for the cooler months. This activity will improve your mood and make you excited again.  Peace+ cbd will ground you this month, with mandarin working to uplift you and frankincense promoting the foundation.  

Leo the Lion: July 23 – August 22

Happy birthday, Leo! Although your season kicked off last month, August is still so much about you! We know that’s how you like it, but you might want to do a little self-reflection this month. The people around you know that you’re royalty already. After celebrating yourself, make a commitment to be a little more humble. When you do, an unexpected success will reveal itself; one that you have been waiting for.  Love is in your corner this month. Your relationship with your partner will get even more intense. You might be blinded by the need to be right, but if you can get past that and listen, your heart will be rewarded immensely. Don’t feel the need to be the megaphone this time.  Forest will help ground you this month after a spectacular birthday. Prepare to feel comforted by the scents of nature. 

Virgo the Maiden: August 23 – September 22

Virgo, did you meditate last month? If you took time to relax, you’re going to be supercharged as we head into August, ready to make decisions, lists, and decisions that waste no time. The first half of the month is a good time for you to delve into a project and check off your goals one at a time. If you are in the middle of a project at work, this is a great time for you to bring your hard work to someone else’s attention. Don’t be afraid to make a little noise.  If you have been working hard to make changes in your life for your health and well-being, they will reveal themselves at the end of the month. You might finally see or feel changes in your body when they weren’t there before, whether that is sleeping better or simply feeling lighter because of a healthy diet. August is sure to be your month!  

Libra the Scales: September 23 – October 22

After some tension with a loved one last month, things are looking up for Libra in August. Everyone will be aware of your charisma, allowing you to smooth over any rough patches. This not only applies romantically but professionally. As Venus moves into your chart on August 7, you will experience professional success that you were not expecting, but were secretly hoping for!  Don’t forget about your friends this month. Libra, you may have disappeared in your quest to climb the corporate ladder or start your own business, and your friends have noticed. Throw a virtual party and take time to really listen to your bestie before you clash heads. Your heart will feel full and so will your friends, allowing you to achieve more success this year.  Mountain is your blend for this month. You’re climbing one, and you will scale it, no problem. 

Scorpio the Scorpion: October 23 – November 21

The full moon on August 3 will have Scorpio checking everything off of those lingering to-do lists. After feeling overwhelmed from last month’s eclipse, you need to feel in control and you need it now. This is good news for your home life. Everything will fall into balance as long as you continue to steer the ship. Taking on domestic lists is just what you need right now.  With the new moon at the top of your chart on August 18, you should consider putting on a performance. Whether you are an artist, writer, actor, or another creative, this is a good time to launch a creative project, because you will receive plenty of attention and positive feedback.  Keep working on connecting with your romantic partner. There is still tension here; be authentic and honest to make it improve.  Sexy is your blend this month. You’re going to be feeling yourself with jasmine, lime, and patchouli.

Sagittarius the Archer: November 22 – December 21

Oh, Sagittarius, you are going to feel SO playful for the first half of the month! The full moon on August 3 will give you an extra boost of energy to finish a creative task. If you’re a writer, now is a great time to finish your novel or write an outline of your next creative work. If you’re an artist, you should seriously consider making a business move. You might meet someone new and influential in your work. This is all a continuation of your desire for self-improvement last month.  As the sun moves into Virgo around August 22, you will experience a shift and feel the need to focus more on work and not play. You might receive unexpected recognition for something that you have been waiting for, and that recognition might not come from the person who would typically praise you for it. It’s a mysterious time fitting in with the rest of 2020!  Ocean is on your side this month, taking you for a wild ride with lime, tangerine, and eucalyptus, but still fresh enough to keep you grounded in preparation for the twist later in the month. 

Capricorn the Mountain Goat: December 22 – January 19

We know you still lack control, Capricorn, and it’s still frustrating. There is good news: the full moon on August 3 will bring extra self-confidence for you to make a big leap. You will feel like your old self again as you charge forward and create financial opportunities for yourself. You might even receive an inheritance or a raise, which will further bolster your self-esteem.  Put your skills of persuasion to work this month to gain even more feelings of control. When you do, you might convince someone at work to take your position on a project you have been battling over for months. You might also be able to negotiate a better deal on a significant investment, such as a car or another large purchase.  Diffuse Zen this month, and you will be able to anchor your chaotic thoughts. 

Aquarius the Water Bearer: January 20 – February 18

August will have Aquarius feeling serious emotions, partly due to the full moon in Aquarius on August 3. You will be fed up with not being able to see someone you love and physically express your appreciation for them. The connection between emotion and social interaction is heavy right now, and you need to feel that people are on your side.  August is also a good month to think about your long-term plans. You should make a list of small goals to achieve during the next two months. This will help you feel more stable and confident when dealing with mismatched emotions. You will feel empowered to make decisions that benefit you.  In romantic relationships, don’t be afraid to be honest and say what you are thinking. Your conscience will feel much better for it!  Your blend this month is Relieve+ cbd. You will feel supported and uplifted with bergamot, yet calm and agile. 

Pisces the Fish: February 19 – March 21

We didn’t want to be the ones to say it, but you need to shape up this month, Pisces! We know you are creative and everyone around you knows it, too. You have been hogging the limelight for a while, so now is a great time to be subtle. Focus your outrageous energy on nurturing your empathetic side. Lend an ear to listen to a friend in need or help someone else out.  You should also take a step back to work on your personal health. Is this something you have been neglecting for a while? August is a great time to work on a new nutrition plan. Eat restorative, nourishing foods, and make time for exercise. It will help you transition into fall with confidence, trust in your abilities, and positivity.  You might have trust issues toward the end of the month, making it even more important to keep health at the forefront of your mind.   Photo credits: ju_see/, Allexxandar/
