Peep Your August Horoscope To See What Leo Season Has In Store
August skies are bringing changes and challenges. The Full Moon in Aquarius occurs on August 1, aiming to bring fun to our lives. The New Moon in Leo on August 16 is pushing us to see matters with open eyes and to embrace a new perspective. The Sun enters Virgo on August 23, just hours before Mercury retrograde in Virgo begins (lasting until September 14).
We will be questioning our present and future aspirations as we reflect on the past. It won’t be easy to let go of things, feelings, and people — but we’ll do our best to decide how we want to proceed once the veil has been lifted and we see clearly who others are.
Action planet, Mars, enters Libra on August 27, giving us a more passive approach to confrontation. The wildcard, Uranus, begins its retrograde in Taurus on August 28, and finishes its moonwalk on January 27, 2024. This allows us to grow at our own pace without any pressures. The Blue Moon in Pisces on August 30 helps our intuition and hearts blossom.
