Welcome to August, rambunctious Aries. Last month reminded you to take care of yourself. You can't fight against police brutality or talk to your friends about the racism you experience every day if you haven't gotten proper sleep in days. Rest up: On Monday, August 3, there is a full moon in humanitarian Aquarius.
Whether it's by attending a Black Lives Matter protest, sewing masks, or making calls on behalf of a political candidate you believe in, this is a day to make moves. Aquarius may be the revolutionary of the zodiac, but as an air sign, this energy can be flaky. Aries, on the other hand, is pure fire and drive. Your role in your community is to help turn dreams into reality. People listen to you and look to you for leadership.
Because of COVID-19, most of our schedules are flipped upside down. On Saturday, August 15, wild child planet Uranus goes retrograde until Friday, January 1, 2021. Uranus retrograde is a time of growth, but only if you're willing to be flexible. We're all adjusting to wearing protective gear when we leave the house and working from home if our job allows it. Dating now involves a COVID-19 safety talk in addition to the regular sexual health conversation. There will likely be more changes to adapt to in the next few months, so be nimble. If you're able to embrace what comes rather than fight it, these few months will bring exciting new people and opportunities into your life.
There is a new moon in fellow fire sign Leo on Tuesday, August 18. Aries and Leo create total power couple energy, and a dark new moon marks exciting new beginnings. However, no beginning can take place without a spark. Whether it's asking someone out on a socially distant date or reminding your partner how much you appreciate them, use this bold energy to assert yourself in your personal life.
Virgo season begins on Saturday, July 22, motivating you to get organized professionally. Most of us took a hit in our professional lives due to COVID-19, but many have found ways to adapt, and some states are starting to reopen. Regardless of your situation, use Virgo's motivating energy to remind yourself that your job does not define you. Organization can help ease anxiety, but this is also a time for creativity. How do you feel your time is best spent right now? Trust your gut. See you next month!

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.
