(July 23 — August 22)

The month of August will encourage you to assess your financial situation with pragmatism and precision. You’ll be motivated to make the changes you need to sort out—or even improve—your money situation for the rest of the year. Don’t be shy—crack open a new Excel spreadsheet and get to work! With a few simple tweaks, you’ll feel a whole lot of satisfaction, especially as the results of your efforts begin to show.

(August 23 — September 22) 

Entering August, you’ll be filled with fresh self-assurance. Determined as ever, you’ll be ready to take on new challenges and projects with that discipline and detail-orientedness you’re famous for.

(September 23 — October 22)

You’ll need a wee break in August to process the events of the preceding weeks, and it will be an opportune time to kick off a new spiritual practice. Forest bathing and solo spa moments are options, as is any occasion that helps you disconnect and then reconnect with equanimity.

(October 23 — November 21)

August will be ripe for commitment and friendship. That said, make sure your involvement in either doesn’t step on anyone else’s toes. Although you are a direct (and sometimes cutting) communicator, you’ll still want to pay special attention to any potential friction that may arise this month. Work on focusing your energy on people who share your aspirations, and avoid any tension that won’t serve a higher purpose.

(November 22 — December 21)

In August, an unexpected shift will help you gain the confidence you need to use your talents and pursue your professional ambitions. You’ll be ready to take the lead and make significant progress toward achieving your goals. You’ll also want to adapt your lifestyle to fit your values.

(December 22 — January 19)

When August gets under way, you’ll be convinced that you have the solutions to your—and other people’s—problems, and you won’t be shy to share them either. That said, it will be important for you to be careful about how rigid your opinions sound. Listening to others and remaining flexible will result in you acquiring new perspectives as well as expanding your understanding of the world around you.

(January 20 — February 18)

The month of August will be waiting for you to clarify your expectations, especially when it comes to your private/sex life. However, you’ll probably be more sensitive to criticism at this time too, which might lead you to question your value at a very deep level. Don’t indulge in taking everything so personally; when you follow this advice, you’ll deepen important bonds that are bound to bring you increased pleasure and satisfaction.

(February 19 — March 20)

Come August, your attention will be on the interpersonal sphere. However, impatience and hasty action may lead to conflict. The bonds we cultivate with others take time to grow, so be patient with the people in your life. It’s all about progress, not perfection.

(March 21 — April 19)

The month of August will involve a boost in your professional sphere. Make sure all your ducks are in a row by investing in an efficient project-management tool. Don’t forget to balance all this forward motion with leisure time by taking a moment to meditate between tasks and properly rev up those neurons.

(April 20 — May 20)

August is the perfect time to dive into new activities and tap into deeper wells of energy. You’ll be motivated to improve at the things you already love to do. Put your whole heart into it—you’ll be surprised by how much progress you make and how quickly.

(May 21 — June 20)

August is the month for a total re-zhuzhing of your home. Organize, clean and purify with so much zeal that your living space won’t be the only thing that gets revived—your spirit will too.

(June 21 — July 22) 

As summer draws to a close, you’ll be inspiration-struck and compelled to drive your projects forward. Your energy will be laser-focused on sharing your unique ideas, but it will be important to not forget the contributions of others. Be mindful of controlling tendencies as they may rob your teamwork of peace.
