What August's Leo Horoscope Predictions Mean for You

Welcome to August, Leo. You aren't afraid to use your voice, and you're known for standing up for yourself. You're also not afraid to speak up when you see your friends or colleagues experiencing racism. That said, you've spent most of your summer trying to make the world a better place, and now you're exhausted. Leos roar with the strength of a lion, but they also need time to rest, or at least to take a catnap. 

There's a big full moon in humanitarian Aquarius on Monday, August 3. Aquarian energy helps you channel your firepower, but before you can help get a local candidate elected or organize a march, you need to catch up on rest. Take it easy this week and layer on the self-care. It's not selfish; you're no good to your community if you're too burnt out to think straight. Give yourself permission to relax. 

Revolutionary planet Uranus goes retrograde from Saturday, August 15, to Friday, January 1, of next year. Uranus retrograde can bring abundance, but only if you're willing to adapt to a new way of looking at things. What does success mean to you? Most of us have been impacted professionally by COVID-19, which can be hard for Leos. Get creative during this retrograde. Start a YouTube channel, begin an online course, or look for other ways to channel your firepower. You are more than your job and place in society. Now is the perfect time to question your role in current systems of power and how you can best be of service, or rightfully express your anger over a lifetime of being denied opportunities when you deserve respect and reparations. 

Make sure to let friends, crushes, and partners know how much they mean to you. 

A new moon in your sign on Tuesday, August 18, turns your attention to your love life. You love to be the center of attention and are so charismatic that others are often all too willing to let you have it. However, it's important to make sure you're giving some of the spotlight back to others. Make sure to let friends, crushes, and partners know how much they mean to you. A little compliment goes a long way. 

Analytical Virgo season begins on Saturday, August 22. The practical nature of this sign helps you buckle down and get organized, but this can also be a time of over-thinking and worrying. If you're prone to anxiety, continue to focus on self-care. Take baths and make sure to get enough sleep. 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.
