Home is Where My Heart Is
Themes surrounding your family and home are the center points. With a ton of engaging and creative energy in the air, it’s quite possible that you decide to mix things up on the home front. That being said, the month kicks off with a power Full Moon igniting your house of career. Be ready to expect the unexpected! New developments in your career or place in the public eye are also underway. There will also be lot of love surrounding you which manifests fully with this month’s brave-hearted New Moon. It’s quite possible that you end up having more fun with family and getting in tune with a new kind of happiness being with them.
Most importantly, be prepared for some breaks, shakes and important downloads. Uranus the planet of change, operating in your sign, will make his way into the retrograde party. This will likely cause a stir for you in some shape or form. Be on the look out for a boatload of awareness into where changes are looking to happen!
The month of August in general, brings a big focus on your family and maybe even your parents. With the Sun traveling through your 4th house of family and home, there’s an emphasis on all things home and family related – perhaps even real estate connected. There could be a pull on the needs of your family vs. your career as we transition into the middle of the month.
A ton of new motivation and goal oriented energy is all around this month. Use it to your advantage, because a serious slow down begins in early September when Mars enters his rare retrograde. Read more about the Mars Retrograde below.
