Moving into August, we enter a month of change, transformation, and rejuvenation full of opportunity. This is a month of simultaneously picking up the pace and of slowing down, and enjoying the remainder of summer with an open heart. With that said, we will be kicking off the month in the sign of the energetic Leo, which is sure to give the signs a boost of drive, confidence, and pride right off the bat.
This could have the signs feeling bolder in trying new things, as well as exploring some fun, soul-food activities since Leo is all about living in the moment. However, Leo also loves to be pampered and indulge in the finer things in life, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself drawn to a little luxury this month as well.
Aside from this, the planets will also be quite active this month, with some major influences coming from Venus and Uranus. Venus, the planet of beauty and love, will enter Leo this month, pushing more passion and confidence into relationships, as well as a need for some self-care.
Around the 24th, Uranus will also go retrograde in the Taurus sign, pushing the signs to find better stability within themselves, and work more on self-improvement. We also enter the season of the Virgo the day before, which is likely to bring hard work, productivity, and an independent approach to our personal and professional life.
As you can see, August is likely to be full of opportunities to change and transform in many different ways. But to give you a better idea of what’s ahead, in this article, we’re going to go over a brief summary of August for each of the Zodiac signs to help you better understand what energy may be around you this month and how you can make the most of it.

Kicking off with Aries, August is likely to bring all things new to your life. From inspiration, a fiery new confidence, or even more love and acceptance towards your shadow self, this month is likely to highlight all things new and all things you.

At your job, a busy month ahead is likely to set the tone for a productive month in the workplace. Although, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re eager about it.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)
For Pisces, this month could have you pushing yourself more than usual, mighty fish. Things may not be working out in your favor right off the bat, and this could leave you feeling frustrated. However, this is likely to be a good month for some personal development, pushing you to a place where you can grow and align more with your destiny.
Try not to fight the current this month, Pisces, and have faith in the Universes’ plan for you. Once you ease the pressure off of pushing so hard, things are likely to clear up in no time.
At your job, things are likely to run more smoothly in August and could offer a nice escape from other areas of your life. Allow yourself to become immersed in your work this month.
