ARIES: (Mar 21 - Apr 20) ”Eight of Swords”
This month gives you the strength and determination to fight your way out of what or who is keeping you trapped, and a prisoner. Perhaps someone is exerting physical, mental or emotional control in keeping you just where they want you. Manipulation and fear also play a role in their mind games with you. Time to say, “enough is enough” and find the strength which, trust me, you DO possess, to free yourself from your entrapment. This could relate to a relationship, be work-related or a stressful emotional situation you’re trying to get your head around. Use what weapons you have, i.e. determination, self-confidence, self-belief and/or reaching out to those who have the power to help you. There’s no shame in asking for help. The shame is in colluding with your captor to remain a prisoner.
TAURUS: (Apr 21 - May 21) “Ace of Cups”
A day in this month lovely Taurus may become a date to remember forever regarding a relationship, or the beginning of a relationship. Two people becoming one. United in their love and respect for each other and looking forward to sharing their lives. Don’t be shy in revealing the depth of your feelings to that special someone as they feel the same about you. There may be a proposal of marriage made resulting in plans being made for a celebration. New relationships begun this month are well aspected and will flourish and deepen as the weeks and months pass. Accept invitations to join a celebration or to socialise as this may be where you meet your life partner. And so it begins…..

CANCER: (June 22 - July 22) “Ten of Cups”
Finally finding your forever home this month will allow you to comfortably settle in and arrange it just how you’ve always imagined it Cancer. We all know that home is where the heart is for Cancerians. Your sanctuary, your castle, your security, your bliss! Spending time shopping for the items you know will promote your sense of belonging in your new surroundings will keep you busy throughout August. Be careful not to splurge too much as you need to keep money in the kitty for items that catch your eye in the coming weeks and months. Those of you not moving home, may find you want to refurbish, rearrange, or make additions to your own home. A family gathering or party for friends will fill your home with love and laughter.
LEO: (July 23 - Aug 21) ”The Star”
Rediscovering your sense of direction in life turns a corner for you in August Leo. If you’ve been searching for guidance, a “road map” of where you need to be by now, then your search is over. Events, people or situations will, either intentionally or unintentionally, point the way and mark your route. Expect to encounter some obstacles on the way but fortunately these will be easily resolved, and you’ll be on your way before you know it, with another important lesson learned to equip you for the remainder of your journey. New experiences, people and places will ensure you keep up the momentum towards your goal. Reach for the stars and you know what, you just may make it!
VIRGO: (Aug 22 - Sep 23) ”Eight of Pentacles”
August needs you to focus on your job, career or business Virgo. Financially, you’re doing well but there is potential for even greater financial rewards should you take the time to plan for the future. If you want to change your present job or career, then go for it, as you’re financially secure enough to risk moving from your steady, but perhaps boring job that doesn’t challenge you or your intellect enough. Same old, same old? You won’t know what’s out there until you look and may just be pleasantly surprised at the opportunities available. Business owners need to do just what they’ve been doing which is bringing them the success they seek. No need to make any changes just for the sake of it so keep this in mind.
LIBRA: (Sep 24 - Oct 23) “Page of Pentacles”
Step out of the shadows Libra. Show the world who you truly are and what you’re capable of. Perhaps you’ve felt the need to be who others expect you to be rather than who you feel yourself to be. August will offer you ways of emerging into your true self. Remove your mask and be fearless and unashamed in declaring, “Here I am. I don’t need anybody else’s approval to just be me!” if there’s a course of study or further learning in a subject you possess a natural ability for, sign up for it sooner rather than later. I feel you are skilled with your hands in creating and forming things of beauty, perhaps painting, carpentry, pottery, anything that requires love and skill. The financial rewards will bring you security but the pleasure you get from working at what you love will always mean more. You are a creator not a spectator so get to work. The world needs more people like you.
SCORPIO: (Oct 24 – Nov 22) “Knight of Swords”
You know the saying, “Fools rush in where Angels fear to tread” Scorpio? You do? Well, heed it well this month. Plunging full tilt into a situation has its merits. It’s what you tend to do, and what you excel at, but not this time. Whatever you’re called on to deal with will be resolved by tempering your wonderful fiery, passionate energy and assessing the situation prior to taking action. This will be totally out of character for you as will reigning in your temper at the injustice suffered by a friend, family member or work colleague. However, they need you to be cool, calm and collected while also being ready, willing and able to fight their corner with all the passion you’re capable of. Be their hero/ine.
SAGITTARIUS: (Nov 23 - Dec 22) “Two of Swords”
Be crystal clear in all forms of any communications in August Sagittarius as there may be serious repercussions if you don’t. The signing of two legally binding documents, e.g. contracts, Deeds, Wills or in relation to a Court case or judgement may be necessary. Be vigilant in reading and approving any small print, addendums or significant changes to wording before adding your signature. If required, employ a legal representative to look after your interests. Seek appropriate advice from someone qualified in financial affairs prior to committing funds to a new venture. Not to say there is anything untoward but better to be safe than sorry when it comes to risking your hard-earned cash.
CAPRICORN: (Dec 23 - Jan 20) ”Seven of Wands”
A need to defend your beliefs and opinions may become apparent this month Capricorn as will feeling besieged from all sides. Stand strong and defiantly deflect what others throw at you as, at least on this occasion, you are in the right. Jealously may be the driving force behind the attacks so nothing to do with what you’ve said or done only envy at your achievements. Relationships may come under strain as someone may feel the need to be defensive which may, in turn, cause suspicion to mount as to the cause. You’ve nothing to fear if you have a clear conscience so stick to your story no matter what. Tempers may be frayed, and harsh words exchanged but this may work in your favour as it will clear the air leading to a clearer joint understanding of what’s really going on, and subsequently paving the way to a more peaceful future. All for the best.
AQUARIUS: (Jan 21 - Feb 19) “Three of Wands”

Opportunities to travel may be offered to you so be prepared to travel perhaps at very short notice. A permanent relocation is also possible which may open up a whole new way of life and bring forward that special person to share it with. be afraid to spread your wings as the world is your oyster, ripe for the taking, if you’re brave enough.
PISCES: (Feb 20 - March 20) “The Empress”

Anything relating to deepening your interest in the spiritual or otherworldly will catch your attention and lead you a merry dance down the path to knowledge and enlightenment. Nurture your soul with what you desire to learn, your heart with the company of those you love, and your spirit with the joy of being aware and thankful for your many blessings. Seek out and be the light for others afraid and alone in the darkness of loneliness, fear or poor health for whom a kind word, warm hug and heartfelt understanding brings reassurance and hope. Your ability to feel empathy for those unfortunates in life will wound your soft heart but the rewards will far outweigh the negatives. The power is within you for these few weeks so use it to the very best of your ability. Blessings.
