August 2021 Horoscope

Happy Birthday to Leo, our vivacious, passionate, and enthusiastic friend! August is a very special month this year, bringing with it a magical full blue moon. We all know the old cliche, “once in a blue moon.” However, it is as beautiful as it sounds—charged with energy, creativity, passion, and fire—perfect for Leo’s birthday.  August also brings a very special event: the Perseids Meteor shower. While this event already started in July, it peaks this month on the night of Aug. 12 and the morning of Aug. 13. Meteors will be especially visible near the constellation Perseus but can be seen anywhere. This vibrant light show is sure to bring extra energy to the height of the summer months! This month is also the last month of summer. It’s a bittersweet time for reminiscing, hanging out at the beach, and having fun. Soon, fall will be here, and the memory of summer will be left for us to enjoy. Make these playful days the best that they can be, as the days are getting shorter and we’ll be cozying up for cooler days and nights before we know it.  Keep reading below to see what August has in store for your sign! We break it down into “houses,” which means the areas you’re likely to see some action. And of course, check out your intuitively connected MONQ blend.

Important Dates 

August 2, 2021: Saturn at Opposition August 8, 2021: New Moon in Leo August 12 and 13, 2021: Perseids Meteor Shower  August 22, 2021: Full Blue Moon

Aries the Ram: March 21 – April 19

Your generous side is showing, Aries. Expect to help your favorite charities this month by doing some good deeds. You will make new and unexpected friendships in this role that will benefit your social circle later. Plus, who doesn’t love good karma and helping other people succeed? Avoid keeping your feelings bottled up. No good can come of it for a fire sign. If you do, you could end up saying a few things that you regret to someone you love. Is it worth it for the satisfaction of being right? Probably not. Share how you really feel, whether your feelings are hurt or you disagree with someone. It’s better to get it out in the open in the long run. And don’t blow up at someone important as that could backfire. Someone in your social circle may want to invest in an idea that you have. It won’t necessarily be a monetary investment, but perhaps a creative collaboration. Tread carefully—is this person going to steal your creative ideas? Is this a person you can trust? If not, back out, and don’t be afraid to say no. Your intuition is strong. Believe in your decision-making skills.  Try Peace this month to encourage a calm mind and flowing emotions.

Taurus the Bull: April 20 – May 20

It seems you have been focusing a little too much on what other people have and what you don’t have lately. Don’t let that lead to jealousy. Instead, focus on what’s good in your life. What have you accomplished lately? What is a talent that you have? It could be as small as opening a door for someone or as big as making a donation to a roadside book library. Breathe and be grateful.  A positive development in your life is coming in the form of a new friendship. Don’t worship the ground this friend walks on. Avoid creating a false image of this friend. You’ll go through a fun phase of wanting to know everything about this person, so remember that you also bring gifts to the table. This will make for a stronger friendship where you feel confident.  You may be experiencing some family drama, and the gossip line is ringing off the hook. Find a way to get out of the gossip circle by planning a solo adventure or a staycation. Spending quality time with yourself will help you unwind and focus on what’s truly important. Fresh is your blend this month. It will give you the confidence to see life in a new light.

Gemini the Twins: May 21 – June 20 

You have your finger on the pulse of something but don’t know what that is yet. If that nagging feeling doesn’t subside, consider being more disciplined in your routine. If celestial energy is making you feel unbalanced, take some quiet time for meditation and try to silence what bothers you. This isn’t always easy to do, but it may shake that feeling that something is awry.  Impulsivity will be an issue this month. You’ll go back and forth on making decisions, then make the one that is the most impulsive. If this comes in the form of shopping, make sure you’re prepared for the potential windfall or save your receipts. Take advantage of the return policy if you don’t love it instead of letting it sit on the kitchen table for three months until it’s too late.  Someone in your life is going through a big change, and they want you by their side to make that big decision. You can help them by showing up when they need it and listening to what they have to say. This small sacrifice will make a big difference in your life when you need it most.  Diffuse Relieve this month to encourage a sense of calm.

Cancer the Crab: June 21 – July 22 

Overwhelming emotions are front and center this month when it comes to romantic matters. If you’re trying to read your partner’s mind, don’t. Realize that you both need true intimacy and that can only come from good communication. Now the question is will you wait for that person to act first? If you do, you may not get anywhere.  You’re currently shifting your focus to how you want your life to look this month. This energy might feel overwhelming at times, especially during the new moon. However, it is important to confront it, feel it, and release it to truly move forward. Let go of what is holding you back and stop waiting for validation. You don’t need validation to know you’re talented and worthy.  Although it’s only August, you can’t wait for fall to arrive. You might be so ready for pumpkin spice season that you decide to decorate your home earlier rather than later. Embrace your love for coziness and do what makes you happy. If your friends think it’s too early for leaf piles and cooler temps, you do you, Cancer!  Start your autumn early with Cozy!

Leo the Lion: July 23 – August 22 

Leo, you are truly irresistible this month! Everyone wants to be at your birthday party or hang out with you, and you’re up for the fun! Be careful not to invite just anyone. After all, your party should remain somewhat exclusive so you have time to catch up with your adoring fan base. If you forget someone, they could end up feeling rejected.  After a string of too many social commitments, you’re tempted to spend the entire week in bed. We know indulgence is tempting, especially when you can order your favorite food and coffee drinks with the touch of a button. However, consider what you’re missing out on if you do this. You might miss an endearing conversation with a friend. You might miss finding a good book as you peruse the bookstore.  Be open and honest with your romantic relationships during the blue full moon. The old saying “once in a blue moon” is ripe with possibility, so don’t be afraid to ask for what you want! You might get that and more when you’re open to receiving beautiful and romantic gifts from the universe. And you never know when a lifelong connection is waiting to be made.  Diffuse Focus this month to stay grounded.

Virgo the Maiden: August 23 – September 22 

Is your dedication to perfection interfering with your ability to enjoy yourself? Don’t hold other people to the same standards you hold yourself—you will almost always be disappointed. Enjoy the company of others without expecting them to be flawless. Appreciate people for who they are, and you’ll be able to enjoy someone else’s company and relax.  Use energy to get what you need from your body and soul. A new exercise routine will help you channel your energy and direct it towards a good purpose. Harnessing this energy will bring about healthy and calming emotions. The empty promises you see on social media aren’t always the truth. Don’t let social posts make you suspicious of your co-workers. It’s a carefully crafted illusion. If you’re wondering where you really stand, go straight to your boss for an honest conversation about your performance. You may not like what you hear, but you can use it to get better at what you’re doing now. In the long run, this will greatly benefit you.  Zen+cbd is your blend this month to help you relax.

Libra the Scales: September 23 – October 22

The frenzy of July is catching up with you in August. Take time to stay close to home and cozy up with a good book, a movie, or binge-watch your favorite show. Ignore people who criticize your lifestyle right now. Unwinding is necessary to nourish your body and mind. It’s okay to take a break to get what you need. Consider putting your phone on “do not disturb” for a weekend.  If someone makes a big declaration of love, take it slow. It can be exciting to dive in and give your all right away in a relationship. Before you do that, make sure you are both in the same place. Talk, laugh, get to know each other—let it unwind naturally. That’s how you can truly make sure you’re both headed in the same direction. You’ll know when the feelings are mutual.  Luck is your word of the month. You’re bringing charm to everything you do. This is a good month to consider a new side hustle or creative project. Have a piece of art to sell? Be brave and approach the gallery you saw taking submissions. A whole new world will open up to you. Imagine the possibilities.  Bright is your blend this month—like the future!

Scorpio the Scorpion: October 23 – November 21 

The world opening up so suddenly may leave you feeling exhausted, Scorpio. Protect your energy during the new moon and let yourself retreat. Spending time on self-care is essential. Replenish your energy reserves so you can move forward with clarity, energy, and level-headedness. Your friends, family, and co-workers will understand if you just can’t do another social outing.  How will you source joy this month? Will you start a creative project? Meditate at the beach? Take a cooking class? August is the perfect time to be adventurous before you feel like hibernating when the days get shorter. Invite a friend or sibling to enjoy this pursuit with you. One-on-one time will help you ease back into the world again without the overwhelm of large crowds.  Just before the full blue moon, an overwhelming rush of playfulness may occur. Why not act like a kid again? Jump in a puddle, run around in the rain, play in the mud, or do a cartwheel. These aren’t activities just for children but also for the young at heart. When you feel carefree, your heart will open up to new possibilities and genuine love. Plus, you’ll be exercising and you won’t even know it. How’s that for healthy living?  Lively is your blend for your summer adventure. 

Sagittarius the Archer: November 22 – December 21 

One of your relationship challenges is wanting to feel loved but craving an immense amount of freedom. You may need to balance these two emotions this month. Around the blue full moon, a spike in energy will send your zest for freedom soaring. Take advantage of this by booking a trip or doing something spontaneous, and let your partner know if you want this to be alone time to feed your soul.  Is there an idea weighing on your mind? Why haven’t you chased that idea? Think about it and consider the benefits of pursuing your brilliant brainstorms. Invest your time in a project that you have been wanting to dive into. You’ll have fun and satiate the desire to create something new. You might even gain a new career prospect out of it.  Don’t mince words when an uncomfortable conversation arises. There’s no use hiding how you really feel when the other person knows what is in your heart. You might think you’re good at hiding emotions, but it’s not your greatest strength. Be real, be authentic, and be honest during this conversation. It will likely end in laughter and not be the big deal you thought it was.  Forest is your blend this month to support grounding.

Capricorn the Mountain Goat: December 22 – January 19 

Remember how it felt to go through a growth spurt as a child? Everything was changing quickly back then. You may be reaching a new chapter in your life. Embrace this change and enter it wholeheartedly. When you stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone, you’re making space for new opportunities that will add value to your life.  During the blue full moon, your friend circle may experience some drama. Don’t let yourself be the center of it. Be diplomatic and don’t take sides because it isn’t worth losing lifelong friendships over petty gossip. If you’re approached for your thoughts on the situation, be honest. There’s no use hiding how you really feel when the truth will set you free. Plus, you will maintain your integrity and be at peace in your soul.  Professionally, consider an unlikely collaboration to experience breakthroughs. When you make judgments immediately on someone, that doesn’t mean they are true. What you thought about working with someone else could actually be holding you back. Think about developing a new partnership to encourage prosperity. Two minds are better than one, and working together could bring about an explosion of new ideas that change the world. Ocean is your blend this month to keep you centered.

Aquarius the Water Bearer: January 20 – February 18 

Once again, you’re bored with your routine, Aquarius. That means it’s time to mix it up. What can you do that you’ve never done before? Or do you need rest and self-care? Try a new hobby to shake things up. You need to get out of your head before boredom makes you internally self-destructive. A shift in perspective can do wonders.  Have you been trying to manifest something into your life? It may come to fruition after the new moon. Don’t give up now—you’re closer than you have ever been to what you really want. Note that it may not come into your life as you envisioned it though, so don’t miss this opportunity. It may appear to be in disguise and fly under the radar.  Make an effort to connect with loved ones before fall arrives. Family time is essential for improving your well-being and mood. New bonds may form over unexpected topics, showing that someone you love doesn’t think about life as you thought they did. This tidbit of information will have you on the phone for hours or inspire long text messaging conversations. It may feel like you have a new friend, but it’s even better. Love is your blend this month as you bond with others.

Pisces the Fish: February 19 – March 21 

Allow your emotions to set you free this month. Cry tears of joy or sadness when you need to. Let yourself breathe. Let yourself feel. You need to address your emotions and trust yourself to use them for making the next step. Great clarity is coming your way during the meteor shower. Everything will make more sense as September approaches. Be patient and gentle with yourself. You know what you need.  Engaging in a creative outlet will open your self-awareness. You may surprise yourself by discovering a hidden talent. Expressing yourself will open up new mental pathways. You’ll be overcome with a zest for learning and also a deep peace brought about by self-discovery. This hobby may offer great self-care now and in the future. There are no limits to your talent!  Seeing the best in others is one of your greatest strengths. Have patience with people who are testing your own patience. You know whose heart is pure and who has poor intentions. Give graciously to those who need it. They may remember you later when you need a favor. Even if it seems inconvenient at the time, building this relationship may be beneficial later. Zen is your blend this month. It will help to unleash your mind.
