August Horoscope, 2012

Leo (23 July – 22 August)

Happy Birthday Leo!

Leo Happy Birthday Leo! Your personal new year begins with the New Moon on August 17, which makes it the perfect time for you to plan ahead for the future and set some goals you want to tick off during the next year. You’ll feel a strong urge to really connect with another person this month, which may lead to a new love, getting engaged or having a baby!  Either way, wait until after the first week before you announce it or make it official.  Relaxation is key to ensure you have a wonderful month ahead.  Be sure to get your beauty sleep dear Leo and then you can conquer anything.

Virgo (23 August – 22 September)

 

Virgo If you’re feeling a little overworked, August is here to help you complete a few of your projects and help you relax!  A weekend holiday with your favourite person, preferably out in the wilderness somewhere, will help you to let go of the stress in your life.  By the end of the month you’ll be so in tune with what you would like to do, that the whole idea of starting something new really invigorates you. Live in the moment – go out dancing and have some good old-fashioned fun, as that is a sure-fire way to ignite the excitement in your life and forget about work.
Star Sign Compatibility with Virgo

Libra  (23 September – 22 October)

 

Libra The creative artist in you wants to spread their wings and fly this month.  There’s no time like the present to pick up that old hobby and have a go at it once more.  Even if it’s for old-times sake, you’ll love it!  Unfortunately, it’s hard to get others on the same page this month. Nevertheless, pure bliss is waiting just for you.  Give your mojo a boost of confidence by simply pampering yourself with an expensive hair appointment or manicure.  If you need to talk about marriage, kids and the future with your partner, well the last week of August is probably the best time to approach that big subject!
Star Sign Compatibility with Libra

Scorpio (23 October – 21 November)

 

Scorpio You need to find a release for your frustration this month.  Perhaps work has been particularly difficult of late and you feel like getting a new job or perhaps you are being pressured to do something you’re not comfortable doing.  After the New Moon on August 17th, you’ll be ready to light a path in your own direction and leave others in your smoke trail.  Relationships will have you feeling hot and cold and you’ll feel as if you’re missing a piece of the puzzle.  Once you connect the dots, it’ll be smooth sailing for the rest of the month.
Star Sign Compatibility with Scorpio

Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December)

 

Sagittarius
Your fun-loving adventurous spirit will get a grand old workout this month that will make you feel the best you’ve been all year. A quirky piece of writing or a random song you made up could be high on your list of things to share with your friends.  Your playful nature knows no limits this month which is sure to cause some side-splitting laughter and maybe even a few tears.  During the first week of August a bit of caution is recommended as something you say could be taken the wrong way. Many Sagittarians have big changes happening with their relationships and if you’re single, your time to shine is now!
Star Sign Compatibility with Sagittarius

Capricorn (22 December – 19 January)

 

Capricorn Two major things are happening for you this August. Financial success and luck – what a combination! A promotion or change of job could see the money situation improve dramatically and you may find a way to prioritise your life so you have more free time to spend with loved ones while earning the same.  Gone are the days of being too picky or a bit pedantic when it came to your love life.  Venus will be helping to soften you up around the edges and bring out your more endearing side.  If you’re single, you should try your luck by helping out a charity or local club in order to meet new people and feel good about yourself.
Star Sign Compatibility with Capricorn

Aquarius (20 January – 18 February)

 

Aquarius You’re high on life!  Everything is looking very exciting for you in August.  Not only will you be tempted to drop everything and rush off half way round the world with a friend, but you may also be thinking of taking a huge step forward in an important relationship.  ‘Surprise’ is your middle name and you’ll find you can make a lot of people very, very happy.  Single Aquarians might be asked to give someone a second chance, just be warned that while on the outside they seem lovely, they may still be hung up on some issues that are nothing to do with you.
Star Sign Compatibility with Aquarius

Pisces (19 February – 20 March)

 

Pisces If someone recently told you to get a grip, well you’ll certainly do that this month. Your life will receive a powerful boost of efficiency and structure.  A new routine gives you the focus and space you need to spend your time on all the right things.  Tax done, birthday presents bought, wrapped and posted… you’ll leave no stone unturned this month and who knows, you may even hit inbox zero!  With some extra time on your hands, you’ll be sweeping a special someone off their feet and having the time of your life.
Star Sign Compatibility with Pisces

Aries (21 March – 19 April)

 

Aries It may seem like you’ve taken a step backwards at the beginning of August. Your spirits are low and you’re beginning to shut out your friends. Change what you can and accept the things you can’t change. Hold onto your beliefs and everything you value. So long as you don’t compromise on these, you will come out stronger than ever before. Your health becomes a key focus towards the end of August. Perhaps the Olympics is motivating you to discover your athletic side. Be sure to explain yourself fully or ask your partner to elaborate to avoid a miscommunication.
Star Sign Compatibility with Aries

Taurus (20 April – 20 May)

 

Taurus August is your time to shine Taurus. It’s going to be an incredibly busy ride so buckle up! Both your work and home lives pick up speed and it’ll seem like it’s too risky to jump off this merry-go-round. Quality time you wanted to spend with your immediate family will be replaced by a big gathering of all your family and friends. An exciting event unfolding before your very eyes will give you a huge boost to your confidence.  Busy schedules tend to fizzle out your relationships, however by the end of August the sizzle will make a definite comeback.
Star Sign Compatibility with Taurus

Gemini (21 May – 20 June)

 

Gemini Guess what? It’s time to hop on the merry-go-round and be the social rabbit you love to be!  From breakfast seminars to lunch dates to dancing with your pals, you’ll barely have time to scratch your cottontail this month while you catch up with everyone.  During the last week of August, be very careful what you write in an email or text or put on facebook as it could be taken the wrong way.  Relationships are doing well, but you may begin to think about what you really want out of a relationship.  Perhaps you’ve been living someone else’s dream?
Star Sign Compatibility with Gemini

 

Cancer (21 June – 22 July)

 

Cancer Still on a mission to streamline your life at home and at work?  Good on you!  The pressures of life in general will feel far less heavier than they were a month ago.  You may have some emotions bottled up inside though, which is always a danger sign. It’s highly likely that there’ll be an explosion of emotions this month where you let it all out. Once it’s out, the healing can begin and hopefully the person who witnessed it has thick enough skin and won’t take it too personally. Single Cancers find they can overcome their shyness to ask others out this month. While for Cancer’s in relationships, there could be new additions to the family soon!

A note from Kelly

‘Love freely, expect nothing’
I’ve had this phrase bouncing around in my head for a few months now and I think it has played a massive part in what I believe to be the most amazing and exciting month of my life this July.

 
Without expectations ruling your actions, you are free to give love and treat others with kindness out of the goodness of your heart.  You do it because it’s a wonderful thing to do and because they deserve to be loved and treated in a way that tells them that they are without a doubt, important to you.

 
This last month alone, I have: (rather ironically) been promoted, rewarded and recognised for my selfless actions, celebrated my birthday with family and friends and got engaged!
Life is a wonderful thing to participate in. Imagine if all our actions were aimed at improving another persons life instead of our own, then wouldn’t that be a beautiful thing to experience.

 
So please, go out there and give your love away freely and truly expect nothing in return.

What do you think of the phrase ‘Love freely, expect nothing’?  Does it sound too idealistic? Or do you live this way already?

    I think this is a phrase that can change a lot of peoples lives for the good. It is a wonderful way to live. Life is very very short, when you look back how much is there that you remember, to me it seems like a few fleeting seconds … minutes at the most. As I have got older I know how life is so precious and time can be gone for anyone any age in the blink of an eye, your life can be changed by the events you experience. Negativity creates negativity so be positive ! ‘Love freely and expect nothing’ is by far a better way to help others … and yourself… to be happy.

    I love the phrase! I live life this way, if you expect nothing in return for your actions then u may be pleasantly surprised. Im a big believer in karma, you reap what you sow. Love unconditionally – even your enemies. Makes you turn that negative energy into positive and am learning not to sweat the small stuff (am a cancerian, so hard to do haha!).. but trying 🙂
