What August's Aquarius Horoscope Predictions Mean for You

Welcome to August, Aquarius. As the revolutionary of the zodiac, you've likely been very busy recently, between fighting racism, speaking out about your own experiences, working towards healing in your community, or advocating for safety precautions against COVID-19. July asked you to take care of yourself, too, and there may have even been some excitement in your love life. You've been so busy fighting the safety of everyone around you that you may have forgotten to nurture your personal relationships. This month, continue to carve out time for friends, family, and lovers. You need all the support you can get. 

You may start to see that your role in the world at large is an entirely different thing from your job title.

Here's the lowdown on how to subscribe to Allure's print edition for more beauty routines, recommendations, and features.

August kicks off with a full moon in your sign on Monday, August 3. This potent energy is perfect for manifestation, and there are plenty of ways to utilize this. You can start off the week by announcing a new fundraiser or rally, applying to jobs you've been eyeing, or finally admitting that you've had feelings for your friend. Feeling clear-headed and motivated, you're ready to make some of the changes that you've been ruminating on for a long time.

Your ruling planet, innovative Uranus, goes retrograde from Saturday, August 15 to Friday, January 1 of next year. Don't fear this retrograde. Yes, it requires change (which can be hard for many people), but it has the potential to leave the world in better shape. During this time, you may start to see that your role in the world at large is an entirely different thing from your job title. You're a rebel, and Uranus retrograde asks you to use your drive to fight against systemic racism. Once again, just make sure to take care of your personal life too. Whether you're leveraging your own privileges in this fight or healing yourself and your community during this time, support from trusted accomplices is crucial. 

Sometimes, you can be a little judgmental if you feel those around you aren't working as hard as you are. During the new moon in brave Leo on Tuesday, August 18, friends and family will likely step up to the plate and impress you with their enthusiasm. Take advantage of this time and get people to commit to plans. 

However, make sure that you show up to plans you've recently made when Virgo season begins on Saturday, August 22. If you haven't, you may get called out for flakiness. This is a weak spot for you. Don't overcommit: When you're making a calendar or action plan, make sure that you carve out time for those in your personal life. Having a good support system — and enough time to check in with that network — is crucial for any leader. Stay safe and see you in September.

We know many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. Although the stars don't have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology may at least provide some comfort during times of uncertainty. We urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you're able to; if you can't, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
