JUN 21 - JUL 22

Enhancing Your Income

The sun is in Leo for most of this month, Cancer, so there’s an emphasis on finances in August. You’re encouraged to take stock and get your affairs in order. If you’ve let things slip, this is an ideal opportunity to take back control and get your money working harder for you.

Yet as luscious Venus moves into Leo on August 11, you might find it difficult to resist temptation. You’ll be eager to treat yourself even if you know you shouldn’t.

The full moon in Aquarius, also on the eleventh, also occurs across your financial axis, and this can ramp up your awareness of any issues. Because it links to wild-card Uranus, it would be best not to make any impulsive moves that could backfire. If you have a decision to make, wait a few days until things are more settled and you’ve researched your options more thoroughly.

Spiritual matters will also come into greater focus on August 20 as fiery Mars moves into Gemini for a long stay. Because it will turn retrograde during this time, it will spend around eight months in this secluded zone. This means you have an opportunity to up your inner game by shedding old beliefs and adopting new, more life-enhancing ones.

You’ll be ready to get organized as the sun moves into meticulous Virgo on the twenty-second. This is the time to make sure the bills are paid, appointments are kept and all your admin is up to date. It also helps to step back and look at the bigger picture or you could lose sight of what you’re trying to accomplish. It might be a case of not seeing the forest for the trees.

Finally, the new moon in Virgo on August 27 is your chance to kick-start any new plans and projects, especially those related to media, social media and the Internet. This is also a great opportunity to network, make valuable connections and enhance your following.
