It’s YOUR month Leos, and we know you’re ready to live it up! This month, you’ll want to indulge in all things fancy, extravagant, and pleasurable. Treat yo’ self! Saturn might try to restrain your lavish ways, but you’ll still get plenty of decadence in this month. Your friendships will blossom, and one friend might even lead you to a new career opportunity!



August is all about balance, Virgos. You might have to delicately balance your career, family, and relationships this month. But luckily Mercury will provide you with the extra boost of energy you need! You’ll also attract a new friend with that signature charm of yours.

Are you traveling this month Sagittarius? Your horoscope predicts you’ll meet an exciting new friend while on a trip. Nothing booked? Maybe it’s time to look at airfare! ✈️



If you want to succeed this month, Caps, you gotta combine self-sufficiency with compromise. You might need to compromise with a friend to make both of you happy, and that’s okay! Your independent ways will keep you afloat.



August is a little chaotic for you, Aquarius! Your family is going to want to meddle in your friendships and relationships, money might be a little tight (thanks Mercury πŸ˜“),Β and your health might not be in tip-top shape. The GOOD news though is that you’re going to channel all of this chaos into something creative and amazing. Try a new craft with a friend and see what you can create!



August is full of surprises for you Pisces! A friend might introduce you to very important career contact. So don’t be a afraid to network! Your family will also take an interest in a surprising friend, but embrace it! Someone your mom likes is bound to be a good one!

Happy August friends! Mercury luckily won’t screw us all, but if you find yourself flailing, remember you always have friends to turn to!
