Whether or not you believe in the stars, horoscopes or astrology, monthly forecasts usually resonate in some way. Our regular star-sign forecasts by Sharan (tarotbysharan.com) are actually based on tarot, so they’re a little bit different. We’ve been a fan of Sharan for years, so, if you’re in need of a little guidance, she might just be the card for you!
Leo (23 Jul – 22 Aug)
It’s a month for abundance and growth for Leo. The advice is to grow your wealth with tried and tested methods. Engage the advice of regulated professionals or bodies when it comes to improving your financial position. There is no “get rich quick” scheme here. And avoid expecting big wins in short periods of time. Instead, embark on a plan that has a track record of providing gains in the long-term future.
Virgo (23 Aug – 22 Sep)
You’re embarking on a new journey this August. It’s taken months of planning and research to get to where you are now, and the moment of clarity has arrived where you feel the time is just right to launch your project. The move is a strategic one – and one which generates the interest and success you were hoping to achieve.
Libra (23 Sep – 22 Oct)
You find yourself in an unexpected circumstance this month: in a collapsed relationship or partnership. It’s something you didn’t see coming. Thankfully, you find the energy and enthusiasm to rebuild what has gone adrift. The reason for things not working out are mostly centred around your personality and ideas overshadowing those of your partner. Don’t take things personally; there is really no need to create more upheaval than already exists. The truth about the relationship will be revealed and you’ll realise how unaligned your beliefs are, and that this slump is really just a blessing in disguise.
Scorpio (23 Oct – 21 Nov)
Your worries are most definitely unfounded this month, even if they have been causing your lack of sleep. The issues revolve around your finances – providing for your family, or making home improvements, or even keeping up with your mortgage payments. Your determination and charisma do come to the rescue this August, though. Your resourcefulness and networking will provide a safety net and you’ll find yourself in a position of feeling abled rather than disabled with your finances by the end of the month.
Sagittarius (22 Nov – 21 Dec)
You’re seeking an avenue to grow your financial pot this month, either in the form of a side hustle or extra work or responsibilities added to your portfolio. Your ideas are bountiful but they aren’t particularly well thought through. Curb your enthusiasm to rush forward; instead, research your idea for potential and pitfalls. Give it time – after all, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Patience in this game will pay off eventually and you’ll be on your way to earning the extra income that you had envisioned for yourself.
Capricorn (22 Dec – 19 Jan)
There is upheaval and then a making up in relationships, all within the month of August. You can expect a breakdown, either within the family or with your partner. However, you aren’t going to allow for an opportunity for things to fester. Instead, you choose to take matters into your own hands to “fix” things – and it doesn’t take long before all is happily ever after again. Well done, Capricorn!
Aquarius (20 Jan – 18 Feb)
It looks like the month of August is going to be a comforting month for Aquarius. Balance is achieved in both the workplace as well as in family life. Your workload seems to be evenly shared with your work team, and this provides a sense of calm and an increase in productivity. In turn, this positivity brushes off on your family life where there is increased harmony, thanks to an improved temperament.
Pisces (19 Feb – 20 Mar)
It’s decision time this August – you’re on a quest to realise your material dreams. You are at a crossroads, deciding about a career change or whether to pursue a business idea or leave your fulltime job to turn your side hustle into a full-blown business. Yet you aren’t clear about your path ahead. In times like this, you need to fall back on your intuition and experience to see yourself through the challenge. The fantastic news is that you do make a decision that feels right for you.
Aries (21 Mar – 19 Apr)
You finally see success in your collaborative efforts this month. It’s a time for celebration, as your efforts will have paid off. This success didn’t come about without its problems, though. There will always be a lot of “shouting” – a want to be heard and to take credit for the team’s success within the collaboration. The key is to allow everyone the opportunity to be heard and an agreement to be made collectively should an idea or suggestion be followed through. This would be the best way forward to maintain team harmony and synchronicity.
Taurus (20 Apr – 20 May)
You are trying to turn around a lacklustre or unfulfilling time in your career this month. With horsepower-like drive and determination, you work towards shifting the situation to one that’s more aligned with your goals and ambitions. The good news is you do achieve what you set out to do. You may not be able to do this by yourself, though, so be open to gathering the help you need to organise your resources well.
Gemini (21 May – 20 Jun)
You decide to take your chances this month and to try to revive a relationship that has gone sour or has experienced a demise. You’ve reached a point where you’ve had enough of playing the victim and you feel it’s time to let go of any animosity and extend an olive branch. Your enthusiasm, positive energy and charisma will be infectious this August – a winning formula for winning over your estranged connections.
Cancer (21 Jun – 22 Jul)
This may be one of the best months in the year for Cancer. You’ve followed and heeded all the professional advice, and you’ve developed good financial habits as a result. The good news is that it all pays off. You will achieve the best financial gains this August – you could say your wishes will be coming true this month! All your hard work of acquiring knowledge and forbearance will be producing the results that you set out for.
