August Horoscope 2018 – Overview
August begins with us still in the clutches of the second Mercury Retrograde of 2018. We won’t escape the chaotic influences until August 18th when Mercury goes Direct. Until we’re in the clear, it means watching documents and appointments. Also, we’ll have to do our best to avoid miscommunication with others. Difficulties with technology and travel are common.
Until mid-August, we’ll spend time reevaluating our position in career and relationships. It’s time for considering how far we’ve come and what we still must do. It readies us for when Mercury’s motion goes direct. Good news: Once we make it through this retrograde, there isn’t another until late November 2018.
Horoscope 2018: August 1st-4th
Contributing to the rough start of August is the Mars Square Uranus influence. This event forms a trine with the Sun in Leo and the Moon in the sign of Aries. These influences cause our rebellious nature to appear. We are prone to reckless action resulting in potentially violent consequences. Remaining alert is an essential to making the most of this energetic influence.
Horoscope 2018: August 5th-12th
On August 6th, the Sun Squares Jupiter, stirring up our liveliness. How we apply the energy makes all the difference in the world. We can use it as a force or positivity or we can end up triggering complications in our lives. Staying moderate in all things is key to making it through the day unscathed.
On August 7th, Venus trines Mars, revealing our desire for fun and friendship. Singles find this time exceptional for social engagements and adventure. It’s also a wonderful time for those in existing relationships. There’s a nice balance between desire and affection. Focusing on strengthening friendships is ideal now. The 7th also has Uranus going Retrograde this month. This is a period where we feel the stirrings of change.
August 9th, the planet of love, Venus, squares Saturn. There’re challenges ahead in romance and potential disagreements on the horizon. We may find ourselves too cynical and condescending during this time. Others might feel intense insecurity in romantic pairings. It’s best to not push the issue and to do one’s best to get through the day with little focus on romance.
Two days later, there’s a partial solar eclipse and the New Moon enters Leo. Now’s a time were our heart and spirit demand attention from friends, lovers, and family. We crave our time in the Sun or spotlight. It’s also an exceptional time to pursue our greatest ambitions. August 12th, Mars goes retrograde. Now we should reevaluate things, whether it’s relationships, business, or personal pursuits.
Horoscope 2018: August 13th-19th

It’s a nice reward after the more difficult issues we all face earlier in the month. Here, our positive emotions stir. We’re feeling more affectionate, kind, and considerate of others.
Horoscope 2018: August 20th-26th
Since mid-July, the Sun’s position is in the sign of Leo. On August 20th, it’s the arrival of a beneficial trine. Energies are buzzing with positivity, and there’re harmonious vibes!

On the 22nd, the Sun transitions into the sign of Virgo, paving the way for matters of practicality. As we relax during the lazy and hot days of summer, we begin to turn our attentions to sensible matters. By instinct, we remember the colder months, and the time to prepare for the darker season of the year. The period highlights self-evaluation. Now, we must assess how far we’ve come and what remains undone. We also take an honest look at what we can still carry out before year’s end.
The 25th is a critical time of the year. It stages the arrival of the Grand Trine: between Saturn in Capricorn, Uranus in the sign of Taurus, and the Sun in Virgo. All three zodiac signs share the earth element. Practical, sensible matters are highlights as are breakthroughs on the physical plane.
The Full Moon enters the sign of Pisces on August 26th. Energies highlight our creative musings and so we can manifest our deepest passions. Emotional intensity increases during this time. It may stir up some anxiousness for those who are natural introverts. Anxiety increases with the influence of Venus Square Pluto energies. With emotions running high, some of us may want to run away.
Horoscope 2018: August 27th-31th
This week on the 27th of August, we’ll feel the energies of Mars as it goes direct in the sign of Capricorn. Here it’s as if all the positive energies in August have culminated into a final week of blessings and good vibes. We’ll feel a sincere desire to carry out our goals or greatest passions. At the end of the month, we want to launch projects.
On the same day, we enter the influence of Mercury Square Jupiter, so we’ll have to keep our wits about us. It’s easy to get way too excited about the end goal so we don’t see all the small steps we have to start first. Rather than rushing headlong into anything, it’s better to pull back the reins.
