Astro-Tarot Forecast for August 2020



1 Aries - 21 Mar to 19 Apr XIX The Sun

Work

The Sun shines upon Aries this month. With Venus in Aries’ 4th house of foundations and home, much of Aries’ attention may be focused on ensuring you make progress and be productive in your work life. However, do not let long term goals cause you to make short term mistakes. In short, be aware of the people and resources that are around you now. Keep your head out of the clouds. However, be cautious, as while you may be enthusiastic to jump on new projects or make your voice heard, the fiery energy this month can lead you to be more reckless or unconsciously aggressive in achieving your goals. This can be a highly productive month so do your best to avoid these mistakes.


Romance

Mercury enters Aries’ 5th house of love and romance. Combined with the energy of Venus in Aries’ 4th house of home and foundations, August turns out to be a very positive month for Aries. Attached Aries look to strengthen the foundations of their home, by strengthening the bonds they have with their loved ones. Single Aries may find a new love interest this month. In both cases, Aries may choose to stir things up with something new; be it in the form of a makeover, trying a new activity or visiting a new place. However, while you enjoy this month, remember to tame back your excitement and energy as it can be overwhelming to some people.

Health

As you can guess, August is a good month for Aries overall, even when it comes to their mental and physical health. You are blessed with the fiery and positive energy of The Sun. After an exhausting period of quick highs and long lows, you finally feel like you have stabilized your energy levels. This is a good period to focus on improving yourself; be it physically or mentally. However, once more you must be careful not to jump into anything too hastily. Remember to stretch before you do your exercises and ensure you cool down after. Hot showers can help relax your muscles and help you avoid muscle cramps. Otherwise, enjoy this blissful month.

Finances

Like with all areas of your life this month, you are empowered by the energy of The Sun and as such, have rather high expectations when it comes to your finances. You know what you can achieve and are ready to put all your effort into it. However, you may want to take more caution when it comes to wealth and finances. As while you can make a lot of headway with projects and financial ventures; you may find that being this productive can be costly in the short term. As the saying goes; you have to spend money to make money. However, you must be careful not to spend it too quickly that you lose steam before you make it all back. Therefore, plan carefully and do not let your expectations cloud over your practical judgement.

2 Taurus - 20 Apr to 20 May Eight of Cups

Work

On the 3rd of August, the Full Moon enters Taurus’ 10th house of career and reputation. This is the time where you must strive to put your best self on display. The Eight of Cups indicates that this is a transitionary period for Taurians. Some of you may be leaving an old mindset behind or putting to rest issues that have been bothering you for a while. However, this change will take time and Taurians must be careful not to let themselves caught up in new drama or issues before they have completely settled older ones. New obstacles may arise that you will have to jump over quickly before they pile up and become a mountain in your way. Do not wait too long before addressing issues.

Romance

There is a strong urge this month to decorate or change around your home life. This can be a fulfilling and novel venture thus month, however, be careful not to step on the toes or relatives or family members. While you may be more adept at solving conflicts if they arise, it’s still better you avoid creating unnecessary drama at home.

Health

The Eight of Cups is a slow and cautious card. You must adopt a similar attitude when it comes to your health. While things around you are starting to improve, Taurus needs time to recover from the chaos of the months prior. You need time to regain your energy and discover your limits again. Take this month slowly and keep up good habits from last month. Ensure you get adequate rest and do not neglect your diet even though you may be tempted to either skip meals or overindulge on various occasions. Also continue to be cautious as you may be prone to accident due to carelessness this month.

Finances

Things continue in much the same way this month as they did last month. There is little that may change this month as things are in stagnation as with the energy of the Eight of Cups. Taurians can choose to heavily manage this area or let it occur naturally with some management. Either way, it is unlikely that there will be any big changes or unpredictable events that will affect you financially. Take this time to shore up your foundation through the most tried and true methods; saving and budgeting. Taurians can make the most of a stable period.

3 Gemini - 21 May to 20 Jun Nine of Swords

Work

Venus enters Gemini’s 2nd house of work and money from the 7th onward. Combined with the energy of the Nine of Swords, Geminis may find that this is a month where work is heavily dependent on relationships and personal feelings. Debates will likely favor compromise and you may not be able to pull everything into your corner. Learn to humble yourself instead of trying to push for your own way all the time. Sometimes, salvaging a business relationship for a future venture is worth allowing for some change if it doesn’t heavily shift the focus of the project at hand. Attempt to appeal to morals and personal values, however, avoid being underhanded or manipulative.

Romance

The full moon enters Gemini’s 9th house of philosophy and learning. Geminis may seek to make a deeper change for themselves on a personal level. You may seek out and place deeper emphasis on spiritual connections with your loved ones. Arguments over material goods may become less important this month, as you are simply grateful for the presence of trustworthy people in your life. This is a good time to work on improving relationships with your relatives, family members or children.

However, many Geminis can spend their time to busy with other issues that they don’t realize that their health has actually improved this month. So take a moment to be grateful for the energy that the universe has returned to you this month. You are ready to embrace life with open arms and the universe encourages you to do so.

Finances

With Venus in your 2nd house of work and money, Gemini can expect that your financial situation continues to be stable and predictable this month. However, at the same there, you may find that your expenses increase due to necessities related to your family or home. The best thing to do is to expect these oncoming expenses and make budgets to accommodate for them.

However, don’t let this new-found confidence cause you to become overly aggressive when it comes to pursuing issues. Do not force disputes, look instead to resolve them as they come naturally.

Taking breaks can help you sort out financial issues, however, it is best to step back and find someone who can reliably help you with your finances. You must ensure that this person is trustworthy though, as it is easy to be tricked by people this month.
