25 Things About Life, Friendship, And The Pursuit Of Happiness I've Learned At 25

What To Expect For The Month Of August, Based On Your Zodiac Sign


(March 21st to April 19th)

As an Aries, the month of August will mainly be about romance. The month foretells that singles will have the chance to meet someone new and special, and possibly a new fling. Opportunities to get into new romantic endeavors are everywhere this month. You will feel flirtatious and highly sensual at this time. You will spread this positive energy with your partner and they’ll be all about it. If in a relationship already, this is a time where communication comes easy for the two of you. Your bond with one another will feel strengthened and your connection is at an all-time high. Love is surely in the air, Aries!


(April 20th to May 21st)

As a Taurus, August will bring you the inner peace that you’ve been lacking as of late. You finally have a clear image of what it is you really love, value and appreciate and what brings you the most happiness. You’ve thrived on artificial happiness lately, and you’ve played a certain role in order to maintain a certain image. Not anymore, Taurus. You will finally find the peace of mind you’ve been hopelessly and tirelessly looking to find. And though it has taken just about every bit of your patience, persistence, and determination to stand by yourself, it’s finally your time to be unapologetically happy. And, happy sure does look good on you, Taurus.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

As a Gemini, August will be a month to cut the dead ends. The unhealthy relationships and friendships that you must let go of will come full circle at the start of the month. You will do what it takes to rid yourself of negative energy and unhealthy relationships in your life. It’s time to let go of what isn’t meant to stay in your life, Gemini. And, it’s been a long time coming. You know this. And that’s mainly because in the last few months, you’ve engaged in meaningless, tactless connections with people who are all wrong for you. It’s time to let the old out and let the new in.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Within recent months, you have been on a journey of self-discovery. You are finding your way in life slowly, but surely, Cancer. And in August, you will start to unravel a deep dark secret you’ve been hiding away. A part of you that you might have felt ashamed or embarrassed of, is in fact, a gift of yours. It’s time to show the rest of the world your hidden talents and let it shine as it’s meant to. August proves to be an extremely emotional month for you, hitting your highs and lows of passionate energy. One moment you’re happy, the next you’re miserable. It’s almost like a rollercoaster ride that doesn’t seem to end soon enough. But, the very end of the month will show signs of an ending, Cancer. The light will be waiting at the end of the tunnel, I promise.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

As a Leo, August is your month to shine! You are feeling and looking extra fine this month, and you’re not afraid to show it. You desire to engage in light-hearted flings rather than long-term relationships. You will have a ton of fun flirting with the cutie at the bar, and what comes of it won’t really matter all that much. You’re ready for a good time, and August will be just that and more! You stick out from the crowd, and your sexual energy is at an all-time high. It’s time to celebrate life for the big party that it is because you deserve a celebration, Leo. Your time has finally come. Carpe diem.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

As a Virgo, you are a bit of a perfectionist with just about every aspect in life. You know you can sometimes feel like a failure if you don’t accomplish something correctly the first time around. And, sometimes that brings your spirits down in the dumps. This month, you may fail miserably at something you attempt. It might drive you absolutely crazy too, Virgo. It’s time to look at things from a different point of view. When things don’t go as you planned them to, you can either A. dwell on it or B. get back up and try again. I think you know what answer is the right one, Virgo. Listen to your gut.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

At this time, your relationships, whether it be with a lover, a close friend, or a family member, will grow deeper than it already has. You will feel connected with this person on a new level, and it will open the floodgates for communication in new, incredible ways. This connection will be extremely important down the line, and you will soon see why that is. Keep nurturing this budding, blossoming connection because it might just be everything you’ve ever asked for and more.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

As a Scorpio, you will use the month of August as a time of healing and regeneration for you. You will find time to clean out your closet, pamper yourself, and take care of the finer details you’ve lost track of lately. You are in a need of some serious RnR, Scorpio. You’ve been running yourself thin, and it’s taking a huge toll on your mental state. August will be a month filled with relaxation and refreshment. You will finish the month feeling like a new you, a better you.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

As a Sagittarius, the month of August predicts that you will be highly assertive and aggressive. You will feel motivated and goal oriented during this time. Your confidence is at an all-time high, and it’s obvious to everyone around you. You feel great, look great, and will accomplish great things. All in all, the month of August is promising to be an incredible one, so embrace it, Sagittarius. But, don’t let your ego get to your head. Stay humble, and stay hungry. This month is also a great time to get ahead in any work-related endeavors. Your efforts in the workplace will shine brighter than ever, and people will notice those efforts in a major way.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

As a Capricorn, a specific relationship in your life is about to cause you a major headache. It will test your inner strength and reveal your sensitivity now. You aren’t used to displaying your emotions for the world to see so this may feel odd to you at first. You tend to hide in your shell and keep to yourself when things get tough. But, you have the sudden urge to find a shoulder to lean on. You want help, and someone will help you as long as you let them. Asking for help does not make you weak, Capricorn. It’s actually a tremendous sign of strength and humility to be able to ask for a hand when you need one.


(January 21st to February 18th)

As an Aquarius, the month of August will be a month filled with romance and passion. If in a relationship, your connection will be stronger than ever, feeling drawn to your lover in intense and sensual ways. You will want to spend every waking moment wrapped up in one another, so get to it! This month is a time to kick back and relax a bit. You’ve become a bit high strung and stressed out due to overworking yourself. Sometimes you find it difficult to balance a social schedule while working so diligently. Aquarius, work hard and play harder. Life doesn’t always have to be lived so seriously. Relax.


(February 19th to March 20th)

In the month of August, Pisces will feel an extreme sense of inner peace. Your health is in great shape, and your emotional state is in sync with your physical state. You feel calm. You feel centered. You feel as nothing can stop you or get in your way. You will feel on cloud 9 for the majority of the month until an event changes those good vibes. Something negative may occur towards the ending of the month, Pisces. So you must be prepared for the worst, and hope for the best. This situation doesn’t have to be as bad as it seems as long as you choose to see the brighter side of things. Remember that life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you. You have the ability to make this month a great one. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
