Aquarius Horoscope August 2023

Full Moon, rainbow, Aquarius horoscope August 2023

Leo Season

The Sun is in your opposite star sign Leo until the 23rd. Leo rules your relationships, both personal and professional. More importantly, the planet of love Venus is retrograde in Leo throughout August and this brings something new to the mix.

You might reconnect with an ex during this Venus retrograde phase. Or, perhaps you’re yearning for someone you were in love with previously. Venus retrograde in Leo may deepen your desire or your passion for love. It’s an ideal time to explore what love means to you and to experience love deeply. Yet, it’s not the time to make any final decisions.

There’s often a hidden theme during the retrograde phase so bide your time, be patient and move slowly. Leo rules contracts and enemies in your horoscope, other key areas to proceed with caution.

The Full Moon on the 1st could shed light on your situation as it falls in your star sign Aquarius. This is about about finding yourself through your relationship with other people. Someone may act as a mirror helping you to see yourself more clearly or reveal deeper aspects of yourself.

Plus, there’s a powerful New Moon in Leo on the 16th, a symbol of new beginnings. This could bring someone new into your life. Or, perhaps there’s a chance to start over. During this New Moon, the Sun and Moon sit between Venus retrograde and the wild one Lilith, also in Leo.

There’s a surge of potent planetary energy taking place mid-month that may connect you to your passion and the elemental side of your nature. If you’re a typical Aquarius, you can be logical and rational as you’re one of the air signs. This month, with so much power and energy in Leo, you may discover a new wild side to yourself.

The Uranus Factor

Admittedly, your planet Uranus is lively during the New Moon phase urging you to be spontaneous and throw caution to the winds. Notice whether you’re feeling impulsive or out of control.

And, with both Uranus and Jupiter in Taurus and your home and family sector, there’s something else going on. This is about freedom, perhaps wanting to break free from your past. Alternatively, you’ve fallen in love with someone and this doesn’t sit well with your family or people close to you.

It’s an intriguing mix of passion and desire. Use the Sun/Venus retrograde cazimi conjunction on the 13th to have a heart-to-heart or gain new insight and understanding about love.

Leo is the star sign that’s linked to the heart and this Venus retrograde phase is a reminder to be true to who you are. Leo’s a confident, self-assured star sign at best. Venus retrograde in Leo is an opportunity to reconnect with your value and your self-belief.

Uranus is your co-ruler as it’s linked to your star sign Aquarius. Uranus is the rebel, the radical and switches direction on the 29th. This promises excitement but suggests that you may be the one who wants to rock the boat or go crazy. Notice when Uranus works for you and when it gets in your way. There’s a genius, spontaneous side to Uranus but it can be disruptive and challenging too.

Events on or around the 7th, 9th and 16th could reveal more. Another possible scenario is that a house move breaks down because of the actions of a third party. Or, someone in your family is behaving badly or struggling and you need to step in to take care of them.

Virgo Season

Money is a key feature of your month ahead, as the planets move through Virgo and your joint finance sector. The Sun enters Virgo on the 23rd heralding the star of Virgo season. Yet, action planet Mars is in Virgo up until the 27th and talk planet Mercury is here all month.

Therefore, don’t put off dealing with finances, especially as Mercury turns retrograde on the 23rd, the day that the Sun enters Virgo. Virgo’s the star sign linked to systems and organisation. Get things moving on the financial front and do your admin or paperwork before Mercury switches direction.

You might be saving up to do something special this month, something linked to your future financial goals. Or, you could be involved in a fund-raising project to raise money for a good cause.

These are some positive planetary aspects taking place this month, that could spring a surprise gift or an unexpected development. The key dates are the 1st, 10th, 16th & 25th. These earth sign aspects link property and home in your horoscope, finances and your future security. This is where there may be swift developments taking place.

Family are pulled into the planetary picture too, whether you’re sharing resources with family or helping one another out. You could discuss moving in with a partner or setting up a joint bank account. It is a good time to focus on your financial future to create a more secure way of life. And, to gather information or do research.

Yet, be aware that with both Venus and Mercury retrograde until mid-September, this is ideally an exploratory phase rather than a time for big decisions.

Find ways to team up with other people to boost your finances and check out all your options. This is the theme of the Full Moon on the 31st that cuts across the Virgo/Pisces axis of the zodiac and the financial sectors of your horoscope. Full Moons often shine a light on your situation and this Full Moon may reveal who or what is holding you back.

This is the second of two Full Moons in August, which means it’s a Blue Moon. This emphasises the unique quality of this Full Moon. Tap into the cosmic aspect of the Moon and use magic and ritual to tune into what’s possible.

It is important to pay close attention to facts and figures now . Get on top of your finances and make sure you know exactly how much money you have coming in and going out.

Be analytical about your situation. If you need to employ an accountant or financial expert to help you, do so. This isn’t a month to wing it financially. And, if you’re disillusioned with your current situation, even more reason to sit down and deal with the facts.

Mercury Retrograde Do’s & Don’ts

Remember the Mercury retrograde mantra – put off the big decisions & major investments when the communication planet is on go slow from August 23rd to September 15th. Here are some top tips:

  • be flexible, have plans B, C & D up your sleeve
  • take a step back, do less not more
  • double-check everything, read the small print
  • chase up old contacts, revisit the past
  • use all the re-words – revise, rework, review, reconsider
  • rest & retreat when you can
  • do your research ready to act when Mercury turns direct
