MONTH OF August
There’s power in numbers, Libra! With most of August featuring the Sun in passionate Leo and your eleventh house of networks and teamwork, it’s prime time to collaborate—what you Libras do best. There’s no need to call a meeting. You’ll find plenty of ideas will come forward in summery social settings. Take first steps on group efforts that will pay off over the next six months. Warm up slowly for now; there’s no need for big flashy moves or radical revisions. By the end of the month, all five of the slow-moving outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune AND Pluto) are retrograde, and will be for the next several weeks. Translation: Use this time for big-picture planning or to pause and assess, correcting course as needed. People will be drawn to your natural grace and ease—so the less frantic and harried you are, the better. As August winds down, you’ll want to take time to wind down, too. When Virgo season starts on Sunday, August 22, for a month, rest up and recuperate, focus on closure and wrapping up the past year in preparation for Libra season. But don’t get too sleepy! The full moon that same day ignites your passion, fame and creativity zone. All eyes will be on you!
With the Sun in gregarious Leo and your group activities zone until Sunday, August 22, your social life is back in full swing. This might just be your favorite part of the season since Libras are often happiest in the company of vibrant people, especially when the atmosphere’s abuzz with stimulating conversations. You’ve got three weeks to enjoy this lighthearted transit, so plan your epic summer garden party or gather your favorite people for some rooftop bar meetups, beach outings and all the Insta-worthy moments. With your idealistic eleventh house aglow, you’ll want to gather your people, Libra—and tell them to bring THEIR friends. Rallying around a shared cause that betters the world? Gathering a group of iconoclastic thought leaders to discuss an emerging topic? Leo season is the perfect time to do that impact-driven work together.
Dial down the drama on Team Libra! On Monday, August 2, sober Saturn will lock into its annual opposition with the Sun, a once-a-year moment when your pessimistic side can seize the wheel. Put in the necessary supports if you start to lose perspective. But do take a step back and examine group dynamics. Are there “difficult people” stirring the pot and creating conflict and chaos? It’s not that you’re trying to force everyone to agree or to promote groupthink here. But if basic boundaries and respect aren’t applied, it’s hard to build a cohesive crew. It’s okay to set ground rules, Libra. You might even decide to take a step back from a certain friendship to let things cool down.
Intense emotions, jealousy and possessiveness could infiltrate your inner circle when the Sun squares off with erratic Uranus in Taurus and your intimate eighth house on Friday, August 6. One part of you may prefer to keep things casual while another is pulling you into deeper waters. You could be very “come here, now go away” this weekend, wanting to be close one moment and then suddenly detached. Smothering people will push your buttons, so avoid clingy or possessive types like the plague!
Group activity gets yet another boost at the Leo new moon on Thursday, August 8. Searching for the perfect collaborators to bring your ideas to the public? Craving the company of a like-minded crew? The Leo new moon could usher in some kindred-spirit connections over the coming two weeks—AND over the next six months. But don’t sit around waiting to be invited. That public-facing Leo energy encourages you to be proactive and unabashed about promoting your ideas. Seek out-of-the-box thinkers for a new group endeavor or join an existing organization that’s aligned with your mission.
Changemaker Uranus turns retrograde for five months, back-spinning through Taurus and your eighth house of merging, intimacy and shared resources. The planet of disruption has been shaking up this zone for the long haul since March 6, 2019, and will continue to do so until April 26, 2026. During this time, you’re undergoing a slow but seismic change to everything from sex to relationships to the way you share power and money. Autonomous Uranus isn’t exactly comfortable in the permabonding eighth house, so prepare to entertain radical new ideas for how you can enter into something deeply committed without losing yourself. Unconventional relationships or sexual experimentation could be part of this Uranian transit.
Retrogrades can bring back people and unresolved issues from our past. Did you shut the door on an intense situation…or was it left it open a crack? With volatile Uranus in repose, you might reunite with a smoldering ex. There could be a sudden breakup or a secret could come out into the open. Finances, especially joint ventures and real estate or legal matters, could become a source of stress and unpredictability. If you’ve overlooked important details or swept anything under the rug, Uranus retrograde could bring it all into the open to be dealt with. See it as a blessing, even if it happens suddenly and without warning.
Ultimately, by dealing with curveballs in a bold and honest way, you could break a suffocating pattern. If you don’t like the way things are going, speak up! Freedom is the goal here, Libra—and the only way you’ll find it is by voicing how you truly feel.
You can slip under the radar for quieter pursuits starting Sunday, August 22, when the Sun begins its annual monthlong sojourn through Virgo and your twelfth house of rest, healing and closure. Wrap up unfinished business before Libra season—and your next birthday!—arrives. Who do you need to forgive? What have you procrastinated on that’s still hanging over your head, and how can you complete that project? Don’t shy away from delegating or asking for support. Also don’t be surprised if you have vivid and at times anxious dreams, or have trouble powering down at night. Turn off the backlit devices a couple hours before bedtime and wind down with a guided audio track, some gentle stretching or a book (print format, please).
Right in the final hours of Leo season, the heavens gift you a spotlight moment for love, a creative project or possible fame. On August 22, the year’s rare second Aquarius full moon (the first was on July 23) blasts into your fifth house of passion and self-expression. Pass the mic! You’re all fired up, and you’ve got something to share with the world. Maybe it’s just a declaration of joy and celebration—and if so, a full moon gathering or a much-deserved night on the town could satisfy your bawdy and decadent desires. How about making a Power Wish? Try these tips from our friend Keiko.
Enjoy these mojo-boosting moonbeams as an opportunity to step into the spotlight—or kick off a passionate summer romance. Bonus: Sexy Mars in your fantasy zone will also trine spontaneous Uranus in your erotic eighth house, setting the stage for one of the sultriest nights of the season. But careful: emotions that have been brewing below the surface could also come rushing out. Since the fifth house rules fertility, this fecund full moon could bring baby news for Libras of the childbearing set. If you’re an artist, performer or maker, these creativity-boosting beams will flood you with inspiration and also draw recognition for your talents. Look back to the February 11 Aquarius new moon and July 23 full moon for clues about what could manifest.
Let it go so you can flow? For the first half of the month, lusty luminaries Venus and Mars are both in Virgo and your internally focused twelfth house (Venus is here until August 16 and Mars sticks around until September 14). While at times you’ll struggle to find the energy to rally for romance, during other moments, this passionate combo will whisk you off to fantasyland. On August 21, Venus follows suit, and then the Sun two days after that. Suddenly things shift gears, and your thoughts gravitate toward closure and release, healing your heart and forgiveness. It’ll be easy to get bogged down in heavy emotions for the next month or so. Since there’s not much you can do about that, at least try to catch yourself obsessing over an ex or someone who’s giving you mixed signals. Even a hot prospect could carry you away on the wings of these imagination spin-outs. Couples need to be crystal-clear about their intentions because they’ll be oversensitive and prone to projecting. On the upside, you can get happily swept away, letting down your guard with a partner. Vulnerability is endearing, Libra!
Hello, Glamazon! When your ruler, Venus, shifts into YOUR sign from August 16 until September 10, you have a stellar opportunity to follow your romantic muse wherever she leads you. Single Libras will have the “It” factor as your sense of attractiveness and desire reawaken. You might be ready for a total image refresh, and stylish Venus will happily oblige. These outgoing vibes turn you into an unabashed flirt, and your efforts won’t go unappreciated. Coupled? While you’ll also be the object of much flattery and attention, make sure you bring the “benefits” of that enhanced sex appeal back home. Tempted to cross a line? Think long and hard; “the point of no return” might be much closer than you realize.
Tired or wired? How about: a little bit of both, Libra? Although the Sun is in Leo and your social, collaborative eleventh house until August 22, energy planet Mars is struggling a bit as it does a weary lap through Virgo and your restful twelfth house from July 29 until September 14. All the more reason to lean on your crew this month and delegate. (Side note: That doesn’t mean “dump,” so make sure you pull your weight to avoid resentment!) An opportunity to launch something cutting-edge with kindred spirits could arrive at the August 8 Leo new moon. Ready to step into the spotlight? On August 22, a rare second full moon arrives in Aquarius and your fifth house of fame and creativity. Get that back-to-school promo blast out and make sure you’re ready when the spotlight and cameras inevitably find you!
