August 2022

Aries (March 20 – April 20)

The path forward isn’t always the easiest. When shakeups occur, you have to establish your footing and move on. You are not at a point where life says to you, “hey, stay stagnant”. There are growth opportunities open to you, and you must capitalise on them. Don’t rely on the tried and true ways, experiment. Have fun. You want to focus on healing old wounds because letting them fester has not really done much for you. As we go through life, our values change, and it is best to do some house cleaning and keep only worthwhile things.

THEME OF THE YEAR, Transforming your outward appearance and strengthening or reshaping the career.

Taurus (April 20 – May 21)

Your family or your tribe is at the forefront of your mind. You will take care of them because you will be happy if you do. Just make sure you communicate clearly so everyone’s expectations are being met. You will be busy. Make sure you are flexible as situations may change quickly. While this might be difficult for most Taurus, flexibility is crucial to reduce stress this month. Don’t stick with doing things in the same old way. Shake it up. Try different methods or approaches. It is the best way to grow and give you more tools in your toolbox.

THEME OF THE YEAR, Rebellion used wisely can achieve results. Otherwise, you’re just a pompous know-it-all.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Watch you don’t come across as a know-it-all as you might risk alienating people around you. Who wants to be in a desert when you can be at the pool with everyone. Avoid gossip and using what you know to lash out at people. Cooperating can open doors that weren’t there before, but that requires civil discussion. Family matters may be on your mind, so watch the mood you are projecting outwards. Look to the old ways to help fashion your approach to issues. New things can work great, but sometimes the tried and true can work just fine.


THEME OF THE YEAR , If you want to make progress, make changes necessary to make it happen.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Some things you just desire, and you will not stop until you get them. The thing is, will it make you happy, or will you just be disillusioned when you get them? However, your intuition will come into play later in the month. It will be able to steer you towards what is best for you even though it might not be as shiny or exciting as what you desire. Look to your friends to spur you in the right direction and allow them to motivate you, whether it is by setting an example or by not doing what they do. Look to strengthen your relationships.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Work hard, but life is not all about being in service.

Leo (July 22 – August 23)

There will be a lot you can teach people, and also a lot you can learn. You mustn’t push your philosophy down people’s throats. It is better to walk the talk, unlike those who only talk the talk; otherwise, you are just blowing hot air. It is time for some serious business transactions and not foolish gambles. You have your heart set on getting the most life has to offer, and you want it to be good in the long run. There may be some disagreements at work, but you can turn them into beneficial dialogue. That conversation might offer a surprise change in career or direction.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Change your routine to give you an exciting spark to create excitement.

Virgo (August 23 – September 23)

There are times when you feel your best is not good enough. You may feel like you’re not succeeding or putting in the effort and not going anywhere. Life is like a treadmill some days. You have to put a plan together and try things out. If you ever watched the movie “Free Solo” about rock climber Alex Honnold scaling a 900m rock face in Yosemite without ropes, you will see he didn’t just try it on his first attempt. Take care of yourself and do things when they are right for you. The journey you are taking is one of creating your future.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Approach matters with childlike enthusiasm but not with childish actions.

Libra (September 23 – October 23)

It is time to take charge of your career and direction in life. If you are thinking of asking for a raise, this is the time to do it. Advocate for yourself and don’t think about what other people’s needs are now; let them stand up for themselves. You are responsible for your own hopes and aspirations, but make sure it is not only about money so you can buy a new car like your neighbour. That being said, partnerships in relationships and business will be a big focus. How you handle them will dictate whether they are helpful or a hindrance. Be sure to get some rest this month.

THEME OF THE YEAR , This year is one of personal reflection and a time for self-improvement.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

Watch what information you are parroting to others. Take time to ensure the information you get comes from a reliable source, or you may have to adjust your story. Expect relationships to have some strange turns as new situations arise. There may be someone new entering your life, or it can be some unexpected events that bring new excitement to your current relationship. This person may be an inspiration to learn some hobby or pique your interest in a new study. You are never too old to learn something new, so be open to the opportunity.

THEME OF THE YEAR , If you want it, make plans to go out and get it but don’t back down.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

It is time to let your creativity flow. You don’t have to be all serious and regimented about it. Be spontaneous and even erratic in your methods because that will make you shine. Your self-expression will be part of your However, learning will also be part of that process, so take notes. Make sure you focus on the correct energy because what you’re doing this month will be carried on for the remainder of the year. You have the power to make headway on the job. Watch for accidents this month, so wear your helmet biking or knee pads rollerblading.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Before you can feel interconnected with others, you have to be connected to yourself.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 20)

It is okay to have fun and to be the trickster this month, and there is a focus on having fun and letting loose. However, this does not hold water when it comes to money matters. You will be deadly serious. Finances and loan matters must be taken seriously at all costs. Make sure the ledger adds up and hold people accountable. One’s philosophy on life is built over the years; there can come a time when that is tested, or there might be some disillusionment. Don’t worry. It is part of the fine-tuning that occurs during life. You will only improve.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Do the best to your ability and learn to adapt to curveballs thrown your way.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

If you are going to use someone else’s line, make sure you give credit where credit is due. It’s not that you don’t want to learn and dispense knowledge, but you don’t want to sound like a plagiarist. It’s okay, as these ideas will allow you to grow. And saying intelligent things will help others grow too. Avoid gossip—spread knowledge and not B.S. Watch for struggles at home. Turn conflict into action to either clean the place up or make home improvements. Improving things at home will go a long way for relationships and your professional outlook.

THEME OF THE YEAR , You are responsible for your excellence but be aware of your weaknesses.

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

If you start feeling argumentative, turn that energy inwards and funnel it through a creative lens. Planning and learning are essential this month, but if you expend too much effort in battling others, you will miss out on opportunities coming your way. This month, words may be misconstrued, so articulate your thoughts carefully. Don’t resist changes that come your way, and be ready to grow. Your friends will find you to be a persuasive force to their benefit. Make sure the advice you dispense is for everyone’s advantage and not only yours.  

THEME OF THE YEAR, This is the year where you can make things happen. Put dreams into action.
