Welcome to August, babe! Your August 2021 horoscope is filled with ups (and also some downs), but you’ll come out of it stronger and more in touch with your resilience. The beginning of this month leads up to an intense New Moon in Leo on August 8. This new moon is encouraging you to express yourself more deeply and to tap into your creativity, as well as your zest for life.

However, this new moon also sits in the middle of an intense t-square with inhibiting Saturn and unpredictable Uranus. You may feel the pressure to either break free from your restrictions or continue to uphold the traditions you’ve always known. What decision will you make? Because something’s gotta give!

By August 9, your love life will be be put to the test. As romantic Venus opposes imaginative Neptune, it may be difficult to see your relationships as they truly are, as opposed to how you want to see them. Make sure you focus on the facts, or else you’ll end up falling for the idea of something instead of the truth sitting right in front of you.

The month’s energy will begin to shift by August 11. As brainy Mercury enters analytical and organized Virgo, your intelligence may shoot through the roof. Getting work done and staying focused on your goals is exactly what Mercury in Virgo is all about. And as Venus enters harmonious and romantic Libra on August 16, a time of beauty and grace will be initiated. Venus rules over Libra and loves being in Libra, making it the perfect time to go out on a few dates if you’re single. If you’re taken, enliven your relationship with some flirtatious fun!

By August 18, a powerful moment will arise as Mercury and aggressive Mars join forces. This could increase your desire to get something important off your chest and help drive your point home. However, you might feel a little impulsive with your words, so communicate with care. As the sun opposes expansive Jupiter on August 19, you could feel larger than life, as though you can do anything and be anything you want to be. This energy is incredible adventurous, so explore as your heart desires!

The end of Leo season will culminate in a second full moon in eccentric and community-oriented Aquarius on August 22, because would you expect anything less from Leo season than not one, but TWO full moons? This one will encourage you to embrace your vision for a future that works for everybody. Multiply your power by working with likeminded individuals to bring innovation to life!

When the sun enters practical, grounded and detail-oriented Virgo, the energetic shift will encourage you to focus on your physical and mental wellbeing by prioritizing organization and routine above all. As Venus forms a trine with sturdy Saturn on August 23, this next season will bring you stability and loyalty in your relationships. Let go of the chaos and embrace peace of mind!
