August 2017 Horoscope by Elaine Marolakos Edelson

Astrowheellg* In August, watch for instructive or entertaining dramatic flairs (or flares).

LEO July 23-Aug. 23

Now you’re ready to plow through any obstacle. Remember that anger is a mask for impatience, lack of boundaries or wounds. Your passions create solutions. Use your spine and heart with intention.

VIRGO Aug. 24-Sept. 23

Your mental gears spin, but your body needs a vacation. What’s keeping you up at night? Children? How to put your brilliance into the world? Sleep. Dream. Connect to spirit. Make space and the answers arrive effortlessly.

LIBRA Sept. 24-Oct. 23

The group – especially big, dynamic energies: CEOs, directors, professors, partners and elders – needs and wants you. Remember those boundaries from July? This is an enormously creative time to jump into your dreams. Trust.

SCORPIO Oct. 24-Nov. 22

Show them your stuff with both feet in. Your upcoming direction (via education, promotion, travel or entertainment) elevates you in status or steers you in a more appropriate direction. Contract renewal pushes you to heed your own teachings. Believe what’s possible.

SAGITTARIUS Nov. 23-Dec. 21

Move your energy by taking a trip or organizing an international, cultural event. Mentor others (big brother, sister?). Be trained. See in new ways. Imagine being on stage or promoting your talents. What’s your message? Who’s your audience? Create an uplifting vision.

CAPRICORN Dec. 22-Jan. 20

It’s a waste to spend cash and time on projects to impart wisdom if you’re not emotionally invested. For huge benefits, heart, body, mind and spirit need to be all in.

AQUARIUS Jan. 21-Feb. 19

A spouse, mentor, teacher or perhaps a lively new friend helps you find security. Focus on fostering clients, nurturing pets or combining heart-centered training with ingenuity. Reveal your natural flow of talents. Change isn’t comfortable, but it’s inevitable.

PISCES Feb. 20-March 20

Health issues? Watch your heart (physical or emotional), spine, blood, head, ears and inflammation. Gentle exercise helps energy flow. Being in flux stresses. Overworking can, too. Bored? With so much to do and learn? Find inner motivation by sharing your wisdom.

ARIES March 21-April 20

Fun, sun, play and kids take over. Suddenly, the almost-forgotten child in your heart sings, renewed. If you’re looking for romance (or a creative project), it can simmer slowly until you’re ready for the big spark.

TAURUS April 21-May 21

Roll up your sleeves and prepare to reinvent yourself at home. That or redo the kitchen, maybe the bathroom. One tiny transition over time equals one huge change. New Identity? Not quite yet. Be at home in your heart then…ta-da!

GEMINI May 22-June 21

Words and brilliance flow, spilling onto the page…or at least at the next board meeting. Temper the need for control but do direct the crowd with care. You express uniqueness and light up the block. Educate and entertain for a winning combo.

CANCER June 22-July 22

Not only are you magnetic this month, other people want to touch your sleeve, buy your goods and bask in your light. It’s a good time to raise rates. Then invest extra income in strategic areas to increase earnings.
