You've an opportunity to stop and smell the flowers, to pause and look into your inner motivations, and to re-establish your connection with your higher self.
TAURUS. What kind of foundations do you want to build for yourself for the future? August is a special opportunity for you to realize what you want and to envision new possibilities.

Review your past, and plan your future.

Nurturing yourself and others, and aiding healthy growth patterns is important to you now.

You want to launch out with the new, and you can make those plans now. But first, attend to unfinished work, clear the decks to make room for the shiny new things piling up on your plate. Full Moon in mid-month can bring you love and joy.
VIRGO. You may have thought some relationship situations were settled. Now you learn they are not, and you may find life a bit chaotic as a result.

In the meantime, you're learning a lot about yourself, and especially just how flexibleor inflexibleyou can be.
LIBRA. You blossom in groups and with friends, like a flower blooms in a garden. Dream your dreams now. You'll have special insight about how to achieve them at full moon.

SCORPIO. Many of the things you've wanted are coming to you now, Scorpio, especially in the area of work. You work very hard, and are recognized for it.

This is a period of growth and transformation for you. Full Moon on August 12 will be an illuminating and satisfying time.
SAGITTARIUS. Pluto is still going through your sign (since November 1995), slowly and inexorably changing your very being, gradually bringing you home to the core of yourself. This month you begin a two-month process of changing consciousness about your life goals. You may be tempted to make important decisions now; but wait. You won't have all the information until the end of September. It's a great month for travel.
CAPRICORN. Money is your big thing this month, Capricorn. Other people's money, such as investments or tax shelters. On the one hand, you're apt to get some good returns. On the other hand, surprising twists and turns in the market will keep you hopping. Don't make final decisions until the end of September. Pay attention to your intuition, and notice your dreams this month. They are good guides.
AQUARIUS. Don't expect a moment to yourself this August. Along with being very busy with people, you may establish a special relationship, or way of relating. Big expenditures may suddenly appear, perhaps in regard to health needs. You may have to borrow money, but it will be there for you. Consciousness in regard to a particular friend or intimate is changing much.
PISCES. Are you in a turmoil? Not quite sure who you are, or where you're going? Your natural ability to flow with the current of life is really being tested this month. Don't sweat it. By the end of September things will begin to clear up, and by mid-November you'll have something settled. In the meantime, yes, go with the flow. There may be a shock at the end of the month in regard to work or partnership, perhaps the closing of a phase.
