Venus Forecast: Your August 2020 Horoscope Is Here

It's Leo Season!

Welcome to Leo Season. The brightest time in the Northern Hemisphere.


March 21 – April 19

You are on the cusp of an acute period of self-discovery this fall. Let frustration show you where you keep things bottled up, and let yourself react to the struggle of being human. August foreshadows the changes happening near the end of the year.


April 20 – May 20

Having so much uncertainty in life has been challenging for most Taurus’. So be sure to invest some of your creative energy into creating new life rhythms; even a different route on your walk or calling an old friend (or a new friend) to stay connected can be both grounding and inspiring.


May 21 – June 20

I know social distancing has hit most Geminis a lot harder than others. But I also know you are brilliant in finding new ways to connect with others. August is a great time to find creative outlets for your self-expression that allow you to tell your story. Find safe ways to talk to your friends more, or else you may find yourself breaking your own pandemic rules!


June 21 – July 22

Today is a good day to feel beautiful. Do you think of self-esteem as part of your self-care, Cancer? Do you think about your self-esteem at all? Loving ourselves can be one of the hardest things we ever set out to do, and I assure you, self-love is a tool for the revolution. 


July 23 – August 22

Happy birthday, Leo! You were born during the brightest time of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, and that’s no mistake. Some of you may not have grown up with the firm guidance you needed to shine your light, and now is the time to change those patterns. What does it mean to be an open-hearted person in the world right now?   


August 23 – September 22

Fear is a tricky beast. If you let it steer the ship, you hold yourself back from your own brilliance. But if you ignore it, it lurks in the corner anyways. August is a time for you to learn how to acknowledge the fears you hold, but not let them dictate your choices. Let yourself take a few risks, especially in your relationships.


September 23 – October 22

If you’ve been out of work for a few months now, it’s time to start thinking about what you want to go back to. Even if you’ve been working this whole time, it’s okay to start thinking about changes. Your inner reality has changed a lot these past few years, and I think it’s time your work reflected those changes.


October 23 – November 21

August begins a long process for you (until the end of the calendar year at least) of creating a new order for your life. Moving forward, productivity must contribute to a greater sense of meaning, not just for the sake of being busy. Do you know your neighbours? Does the work you wake up and do every day make this a better world for them (and for you) to live in? 


November 22 – December 21

I know you have a generous heart Sagittarius, but don’t let the things and people you love drain all your resources. The beginning of August will bring you some much-needed inspiration; trust your intuition here, not the fears that believe you’ll never have enough. 


December 22 – January 19

You might find yourself restless and unsure of what to do with yourself this month, Capricorn. There is always work to be done, but it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your life. Take some time to enjoy your loved ones, and beautify your home. What makes you happy?


January 20 – February 18

Self-care is a real buzzword these days. What does it actually mean for you, Aquarius? For most of you it might begin with simply acknowledging that you do, indeed, have a body, that needs sleep, food, love, and resources like the rest of the humans. Make self-care a part of your routine the way you would for others.


February 19 – March 20

At the beginning of the month, you may begin to appreciate yourself. Real self-esteem can be elusive (especially for a Pisces), so perhaps it begins with a few moments here and there. It’s not hard for you to fall in love and then fall deeper in love these days.
