August 2021 Monthly Horoscope: 12 Sign Overview


As we enter the 8th and luckiest month of the year, the season of auspicious Leo is going full swing, setting us up for a roaring month of confidence, creativity, and divine empowerment. Looking at the charts, August is expected to be full of inspiration, realization, and unpredictable change for many. While we have the mighty Leo paving the way for success and personal power from the get-go, we will also be mingling in retrograde with four planets this month, including Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter, and Uranus, which is likely to lead many of us down a path to memory lane as we begin to work through and overcome any suppressed emotions and traumas we may have buried. Above all else,  get ready for some major opportunities for growth to be presented to you throughout the entire month of August.

However, aside from this, we will also be making way for the return of the Lionsgate Portal on August 8th, coinciding with our monthly new moon, and prompting us for inspired intention setting and manifestation work. The Lionsgate Portal is an extremely important day of spiritual alignment that only comes our way once a year, on August 8th, and pushes us to connect deeper with the higher frequencies of the cosmos and move into better alignment with our divine selves. Above all else, this is an extremely important day in the spiritual world, so get ready for some major karmic energy to take place.

Overall, August is expected to be a powerful month of enlightenment, change, and inspiration like no other. Today, we’re going to go over what each Zodiac sign has in store for this transitional month and how you can make the most of it.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Starting with the Aries, over the last few months, you’ve been working very hard to achieve something in your life, mighty ram, and it’s been truly admirable to see. However, despite your dedication to this endeavor, this month is expected to bring a much slower period of progress to your life that will allow you to slow down. While you may not like this slow pace, you must understand that rest is just as essential when it comes to pursuing your goals. So get ready to channel all that fun, Leo personality, Aries, cause this month is going to shine a light on your ability to let loose and have some fun. 

In your career, while you’ve been striving for advancement in the workplace, this isn’t likely to be the month where you reach the finish line, and you are advised to take some time to recuperate your energy in the meantime. Try taking up some new creative endeavors this month to keep you busy and allow your mental self to rest.

In love, this month, those in a relationship should have a relatively blissful month with very minor bumps in the road with their partner. If you are single, this month has a high potential of bringing new romance into your life, and with your beaming confidence right now from the Leo, it shouldn’t be difficult to make someone swoon.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20):

For the Taurus, August is predicted to be a month of inner and emotional healing for you. With the powerful influence of multiple planetary shifts right now, including the Sun and Mercury, you’re likely to find yourself in a deep reflection for most of the month, leaving you feeling a little foggy in your head. Don’t let this get you down, Taurus, and instead try to use this as a time to understand why these emotional weights are still holding you down and how you can release them once and for all. You’ve got this.

In your career, your work should remain relatively steady and could even feel a little boring this month with how straightforward it will be. However, you shouldn’t have any issues accomplishing the work at hand, which will help ease any stress you may be feeling from other sources.

In love, if you are in a relationship, you’re likely to experience some ups and downs this month; however, open communication, understanding, and compromise will easily resolve any issues that arise. If you are single, you may draw in some quick flings this month (which will be very welcomed by you at the moment, FYI), but nothing of deep emotional value is predicted at this time.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20):

For the Gemini, the month of August is expected to bring expression, inspiration, and hard work into your space. Throughout the entire month of August, creativity will be a major focus for you, and new ideas will seem to flow effortlessly to you. Don’t let this go to waste, Gemini. Allow your mind to run free, and make sure you jot down all the new ideas coming to you so that you can better bring them to fruition in the future. 

In your career, you may be facing some frustrating situations with your current management. Despite your efforts, the hard work you’ve been putting in just doesn’t seem to be paying off, and it may have you lacking confidence in your ability to advance. Despite what it may seem, it’s not you, Gemini, and you are advised to try to remain positive and patient a little bit longer. Everything takes time, and you are expected to receive gratification for that towards September. Keep going.

In love, a blissful month full of sensuality, passion, and seduction is expected, and your relationship is likely to feel brand new. If you are single, you’ll kick off the month feeling rather confident in your natural charisma. Because of this, it shouldn’t be too hard for you to win over someone special if you so desire.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22):

For the Cancer, August is going to be a transformative month of cleansing and reflection for you. As we transition deeper into the Leo season, your emotions will be challenged, and you’re likely to feel a little stuck in your head. Remember, everything happens for a reason, Cancer, and you should use this as a time to work through any emotional blockages that may be in your way. Above all else, now is an excellent time to make a change.

In your career, work should remain relatively steady, with no major wins or losses, and your finances should remain good. However, you are advised to be careful with your spending this month, as you may be feeling a little looser with your money due to Leo’s self-indulging influence. Don’t let this get the best of you, Cancer, as you may need that money in the near future.

In love, for those in a relationship, some bumps in the road may arise at the beginning of the month with your partner, but it will likely make way for a romantic and steamy connection later in the month. If you are single, the influence of Jupiter this month may help to guide you to someone new. If the opportunity arises, you are advised to take it slow, Cancer, and make sure you don’t do anything rash.

Leo (July 23 – August 22):

For the Leo, it’s your birthday season, and you’ll be kicking off the month feeling pretty high on your horse. Your confidence will be roaring, your ego will be boosted like a rocket, and you will all around feel like the king of the jungle you are. This is a time for embarking on new adventures and pursuing any new creative ideas as they arise, as you embrace the power of your mighty season.

In your career, as with anything else this month, expect some new opportunities to arise in the workspace that could lead you to a much-desired advancement. However, don’t get cocky now, Leo, and remember that continuous hard work will be essential to maintaining this new title. Don’t drag your feet. 

In love, your relationship may experience some arguments and disagreements that could leave your ego wounded. While it may be difficult, do what you can to meet in the middle with your partner in order to restore harmony if you wish to get through this quickly. If you are single, your ferocious confidence is admirable, but too much of it can come off a little toxic to potential suitors. Therefore, make sure you maintain a humble demeanor when searching for love if you want to have the best luck with making a connection. 

Virgo (August 23 – September 22):

For the Virgo, alongside the Leo sign, it’s also the start of your birthday season at the end of the month, but you may start off the month in a rough patch, feeling a little out of your element. With the influence of the planetary changes that took place in July, including the Mercury and Sun conjunction, you’re likely to feel a little sensitive, irritable, and foggy in your head. While this may be a frustrating time, it will also likely prove to be a very eye-opening month that will lead to better things in your future. Keep your head up, Virgo. 

In your career this month, you’re likely to have some frustration in the workplace over a lack of recognition for the hard work you’ve been putting in. Grab the reins on your emotions and take a step back, Virgo, and allow yourself to see the true pros and cons of the job you currently have. If it’s not adding to your life, it may be time to kick it to the curb and look for a job where you will have the proper respect and recognition you deserve.

Romantically, if you’re in a relationship, you may have some changes coming your way with your partner this month. Whether it is good or bad, this will be a powerful period of growth for you where you will start to recognize the power of getting what you wish for. If you are single, it won’t be hard to snag a quick date; however, if you’re looking for something a little more substantial in terms of love, you may want to put your heart on hold until next month.

Libra (September 23 – October 22):

For the Libra, August is expected to be a month full of good karma for you. The conjunction of the Sun and Mercury from the last week of July will make way for some opportunities for growth throughout August as you begin to push the boundaries and step further out of your comfort zone. While this will, for the most part, be relatively positive, you may also experience some minor feelings of anxiety and uncertainty throughout the month due to the changes occurring. Do your best not to let them get the best of you, Libra.

In your place of work, August is likely to be very lucky for you in terms of advancement, with many new and well-deserved opportunities rising. Above all else, any doubt you may have had with a specific job will likely ease this month, and you will begin to feel much more confident with the path you are currently on.

In love, a positive month of love with your partner is likely to provide a rewarding feeling more than anything, and you will feel truly blessed to have your partner at your side. If you are single, with so much change happening, you may want to take some time to just do you this month and wait until you are in a steady place before seeking love. Be wary of exes that may also be stirring this month, and above all else, don’t forget that the past is in the past for a reason. 

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):

For the Scorpio, the month of August is predicted to be a month of change for you. This month, planetary changes with the Sun, Mercury, and Mars, are likely to highlight your professional life and set your ambition on fire. Many things from beneath the surface in your personal life may also be revealed this month, and, whether it’s good or bad,  it is all around expected to be very eye-opening for you.

In your career, your money and finances are expected to be steady this month, and you are likely to feel a newfound enthusiasm with your work that will all around contribute to the positive energy surrounding your money. At this rate, better rewards will be headed your way soon. Keep up the great work, Scorpio.

In love, if you are in a relationship, compromise will be key with your partner this month, as you may have a hard time seeing problems from the same point of view. As long as you keep your communication open at all times, you shouldn’t have any lasting problems. For those who are single, this is a great time for you to pursue new romantic interests, as luck is currently on your side in love. Just be careful not to fall head over heels too quickly, Scorpio, as this could lead to heartbreak.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):

For the Sagittarius, August will be a steady month in all aspects of your life and may even leave you feeling a little bored. With all this free time, now is a great time to start pursuing creative endeavors and making moves on anything that has been put on the back burner.

In your career, work will remain steady, and you are advised to put a bigger priority on your future planning.

This will all around contribute to your calm and collected feeling and will help to offer you a true feeling of mental bliss.

In love, the month of August is likely to bring a positive connection with your partner, and all-around things are expected to be flourishing.

Once you allow your heart to be free, only then will you truly be able to make a true and lasting connection, Sag.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):

For the Capricorn, as with many other Zodiac signs, August is likely to be filled with opportunities for growth for you as you shed your skin to make way for something new. Because of these changes taking place, you’re likely to expand your mind and allow a plethora of new and divine ideas into your space, which will boost your creativity to the max. Let your imagination run free, and use this opportunity as a chance to start new and express your divine ideas to the world however you see fit.

In your career, August will be slightly boring in the workplace, with advancement unlikely. You can choose to tough it out, or you may find yourself pondering the idea of a new work environment. Either way, you are advised to trust your intuition as much as possible and let it guide you to where you need to be.

In love, your relationship may test your limits, and you will need to find new ways to compromise with your partner that may take some adjustment. If you are single, love doesn’t look too promising at the beginning of August, and you are most likely to have better luck towards the end of the month. Don’t rush it, Cap. 

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):

For the Aquarius, the month of August will come bearing both highs and lows, but ultimately a plethora of great opportunities for growth. You’re likely to kick off the month feeling enthusiastic and inspired, and you’re likely to accomplish many of the goals you’ve been picking at for quite a while. However, you may also experience some setbacks in your personal life due to Mars transitioning through Virgo this month. Do what you must in order to regroup, Aquarius; just don’t let it sway you from your path for too long.

In your career, with such a strong enthusiasm towards your work right now, things are expected to be accomplished with ease, and you are unlikely to experience too much stress in terms of work. With your motivation beaming, if there’s been something you’ve been putting off working on in another area of your life, expect to find the determination to tackle it without any difficulty. 

In love, you’re likely to have some head collisions with your partner in the beginning of the month, but it isn’t likely to last for long. Make sure you keep an open mind with your partner, and be sure to not point the blame too quickly.  If you are single, you may have some difficulties finding love this month, so it may be best to just take a step back and focus on you for a bit, Aquarius. 

Pisces (February 19 – March 10):

And finally, for the Pisces, you may find your mind drifting towards the past as you begin to work through some previous issues that may be holding you back. Remember to not take any anger out on other people, especially your partner, as this will only make matters worse. However, on a positive note, this month, your creative side will also be at full peak throughout, August and you are encouraged to take the proper time to pursue and work with these new ideas you have however you see fit. 

In your career, frustrations at work make you reconsider your position at a certain job and may have you considering the possibility of a new place of work. Trust your intuition, Pisces, and let it guide you to where you need to be. It will never lead you astray.

Romantically, August is predicted to be a smooth month for those in a relationship and will be full of plenty of opportunities for you to strengthen your connection. Just be sure to keep outside stresses away from your love life. If you are single, it would be a great idea for you to try to meet new people, Pisces, and may even help you to cope with any pent-up emotions in a healthy way. Just don’t rush into anything abruptly, as this isn’t likely to be well-met.


Overall, the month of August is expected to be a powerful and transitional month for all members of the Zodiac. While at times the road may seem a little bumpy and unpredictable, it will ultimately be one of the most important months for moving forward and aligning you with your divine purpose. Allow the swift energy of the month to guide you to where you need to be and keep the faith in knowing that all this hard work, adjustment, and transition will soon pay off. 

Happy August!
