Your horoscopes for August 2019 are published with a companion Cosmic Playlist that I curate in collaboration with Spotify. August 2019 offers us some of the most bountiful, blessed astrology this year. In addition to your Cosmic Playlists, work with this abundance via your reading, journaling questions, altar suggestions, and guided meditations in A Workshop for the New Moon in Leo, Full Moon in Aquarius, and the Astrology of July 31-August 29.
If you know both your rising sign and sun sign, please read both horoscopes and listen to both playlists! They both contain important information. Take what works for you, leave the rest. If you want to share this work, you must quote it and link it to this post and website. Thank you for your support and for spreading the work. We really appreciate it and you!
Aries & Aries Rising
Aries, August celebrates your ability to take up space. All of us can be “too much”, at times, but there are moments that call for a little more of us to come forth than others. This is one of them. August 6th to 14th is an especially auspicious pocket of days for you to put your creations out into the world, travel, publish your latest piece, or create whatever brings you and others joy. The skies are enthusiastically supportive of everything that you wish to bring into being, especially if it has to do with pleasure. Center it. Seek joy. Enjoy what you can when you can.
Taurus & Taurus Rising
Taurus, August encourages you to love up your inner life. It wants you to invite over the people who bless your space with their energy (and refuse entry to those that do not). It wants you to decorate your boudoir with all the things that help you feel alive and luxurious. Dress in lingerie, loungewear, and diva duds. Be the queen of your castle. Polish your crown. Salt your baths and the rim of your glass. Sweeten your sentiments to yourself, and your domestic dwellings, there is much healing that can happen here through acts of pleasure, devotion, and love. Whatever has been left hungry in your heart, can now be filled up with a little extra focus on letting love, and joy, in.
Gemini & Gemini Rising
Gemini, August gets you on the go. With a bounty of beautiful messages and sentiments to spread, you either become the bearer of good news or welcome in many. The more you are out and about, the better chance you have to bump into good fortune, especially between August 6th and 14th. Send love notes. Text your people your appreciation.
Call the cousins, aunties, and fairy goddess in your life and tell them how much they mean to you. Any way you can, amplify your affection for others. You can’t take back any words you’ve used that have caused harm in the past, but you can make the effort to right those wrongs in the present. This is that moment.
Cancer & Cancer Rising
Cancer, August wants to fill your accounts with the blessings that can only come from loving what you do and being loving while you do it. The more you refuse to devalue the currency of kindness, the more wealth you’ll experience. Your special talent is being able to hone in on the needs of others and serve accordingly. This ability is bumped up come August, bringing with it rewards for your good deeds.
These boons may be financial or they may appear as opportunities to get in on some good work. However, more important than either is remembering that how you do what you do makes a difference in the world. A little bit of care goes an incredibly long way.
Leo & Leo Rising
Leo, this August brings you more than the regular birthday blessings. The abundance of, or potency within, the opportunities that currently light your way, don’t happen every day. You can spend this cosmic currency by simply reveling in all of the abundant pleasures that come your way, or you can channel it into something long-lasting and possibly highly rewarding.
There’s no right or wrong way to live this out, and the best path is probably down the middle of them both. Enjoying what you make, give, and exchange with the world is a set up for your success. August 6th through to te 14th reveal the best of this magic, but if you use it wisely, it is just the beginning.
Virgo & Virgo Rising
Virgo, August makes clear how potent internal preparation can be. Preparation that has no expectation. Preparation that has no preconceived notion of what will come next. Preparation that opens you up to possibility, instead of closing you down with the poison of entitlement.
August 6th through 14th are days that have the power to bring you gifts that have been hidden until now. Secret admirers are revealed, or a feeling of inner wealth independent of anything else appears. By the time Virgo Season rolls around, you are well primed for a year of breakthroughs and exciting, out of the blue opportunities.
Libra & Libra Rising
Libra, August has your social calendar set. Whether is full to the brim, or pleasantly complete with a couple of blessed meet-ups, it matters not. Don’t let the ego’s need for quantity rule over soulful quality. Make time for those that leave you inspired to give more, love more, and leave more for others to enjoy. The most generous of your community members have the most to teach you. Those that know an open heart is a healthy one help you to focus your intentions there.
This month wants to drive home the message that being around those that bring you joy helps you overcome your self-defeating habits with greater ease and efficiency. Pleasure is a practice. Get on its mat.
Scorpio & Scorpio Rising
Scorpio, August burns bright with many career highlights. It’s a month full of opportunities that flow your way with great ease and abundance. It’s time that teaches you about the true nature of generosity. It asks you to give exactly what you wish to receive without any need for celebration for doing so. Don’t get me wrong, there is much about your work that will be uplifted (especially August 6th through 14th), many victories to be had, but the more you show up as a professional who is here to give rather than get, the more others see you as the leader you want to be in your field. Approaching your place in the world this way is a spiritual cleansing, and blessing, like no other. Give yourself that gift.
Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising
Sagittarius, August unleashes a new level of your creative potential. 2019 has been begging you to take up more space in general but specifically helping you to do so in ways that heal what would rather have you shrink. This is no time to play it small (especially August 6th – 14th), but your expansion needs to be for soulful reasons.
Merely amassing more won’t satiate you. What this moment calls for is the kind of thoughtful growth that encourages more pleasure to be present in your life. Travel can help you access unusual sources of inspiration, but you don’t have to move in order to get there. You’re set up to feel especially free no matter where you find yourself.
Capricorn & Capricorn Rising
Capricorn, August brings blessings through collaborations. Your partnerships become the vehicles for many gifts to flow your way, do what you can to open to them. Notice where you might be a little more shut down, or closed off when it comes to receiving the bounty that comes your way because you didn’t create it on your own. Notice when and where you tend to become identified with over-work and being busy. Notice what it’s like to take a moment out of your day to meditate on allowing more support to flow to you. Help (especially from August 6th- 9th) comes from the most unexpected sources, so gift horses should only be looked at lovingly.
Aquarius & Aquarius Rising
Aquarius, August brings breakthroughs and blessings in your relationships and committed partnerships. From August 6th through the 14th, a social portal opens up for you that gives you access to copious amounts of creatively inspired connections. Show up for them. Seek out those you resonate with most. Get to the party. Be open to spontaneous gatherings with good-hearted honeys. People doing the kind of work on themselves that ultimately leads to a grounded, and pervasive sense of well-being are worth the effort to be around. Surrounding yourself with those that are generous, kind, and unwilling to restrain the talent that runs through them will help you do the same.
Pisces & Pisces Rising
Pisces, August showers your professional projects with success. It’s not out of the blue, or apart from anything that you deserve, but your hard work now has more ability to help you shine in your industry. August 6th through the 14th is an especially potent week for your career and revelations about it. Whether you are vacationing or at the office, keep attuned to the messages you get about the growth of your business, ideas, and professional interests. What comes to you now might be as obvious as a promotion or a subtle as a whisper, but both are trying to direct you towards what will make you feel successful now.
