Horoscope August 2020

It’s time for a little unconventional learning. 

This is an unprecedented year. The reality is that we know our old tricks don’t work, our safe bets will lead to more danger, and that it’s time for us to be immersed in the process of remaking our world.. 

Aquarius is a sign that purifies our thinking process, clarifies our sentiments, and is able to understand a system like nobody’s business. It goes deep with its analysis, willing to be right enough to be disliked. Aquarius isn’t in it for the praise. It’s here for the precision. 

If over the course of the first week of August you are struck with an insight that is destabilizing, give thanks. When we are knocked off our high horse, or course corrected by divine intervention, it’s no small event. A million little actions had to fall into place in order for you to receive the blessing of awareness. Even, and maybe especially, when it’s inconvenient for us to integrate the new information, it’s an opportunity to see a situation anew. The changes of plans that occur are part of the Moon’s process. It’s never any use to get too attached to having things flow or show up in a certain way, but it’s especially foolish now. 

On the other side of this Full Moon, we’ll meet some of the most challenging astrology of 2020. We can use it to shake us loose of any preconceived notions that our silence will keep us safe, that there is a normal to go back to, or that the uprising is over.  

Far from it. 

Your Full Moon horoscopes are meant to be read as inspiration. If you know both your rising sign and sun sign, please read both horoscopes. You’ll know which resonates more for you from week to week. Take what works for you, leave the rest. If you want to share this work you must quote it and link it to this post and website. Thank you for your support and for spreading the work around. We really appreciate it and you. 

Aries & Aries Rising

August’s Full Moon shines its light on your friendships, networks, and the community issues that need your attention. Unexpected events can lead to cute moments with loved ones or disruptions that send waves across your connections. This Full Moon is full of surprises. 

What others go through is felt by you. Extend yourself in service but don’t get lost in any drama. 

Save yourself from the downside of Leo Season. 

This part of the year reminds you how necessary it is to slow down, take your time, and be a little more present to the feelings, problems, and invitations that are presenting themselves. The out of the blue opportunities that your friends present you with now need to be considered with care. You will keep returning to whatever you begin at this point of the year. 

Get involved with things that you want to spend the majority of your time on, and not the things that you are only doing out of obligation. If a project comes your way in a hurry and it’s not being given the kind of time it needs, it will absorb all calendars it comes into contact with from September to January. Save your energy for the most important priorities you have. Your future self thanks you for it.

Taurus & Taurus Rising 

August’s Full Moon amplifies the impact of the personal changes that you have undergone over the past 2 years. The inner turbulence, met by the destabilizing outer shift of our collective reality, has been a little extra to say the least. But what gets subverted also gets the opportunity to get reimagined. How has 2020 helped you know what else is possible for you? What priorities have you realized are central to your well-being that used to just be peripheral?

Under the light of this Full Moon, many feelings will rise to the surface about where you belong and what kind of home and hearth warms you. Listen intently to the sentiments you might otherwise dismiss as ridiculous. This Full Moon is full of breakthroughs for you – but if you don’t take your personal revolution seriously, how can you facilitate the changes you most need now?

With Venus finally leaving your finances alone after long retrograde pre- and post-shadow shenanigans, it’s entrance into the part of your chart that deals with your day-to-day rhythms and rituals bodes well for your ability to feel connected to your neighborhood and to have conversations that help open up opportunities. Center the little pleasures that help to make the challenges you face smaller than your fears project them to be.

Gemini & Gemini Rising 

August’s Full Moon brings messages that changes are afoot. Whether these are small tweaks to your journey, or larger overhauls to your life’s work all depends on what juncture you are at personally. What shifts us towards greater alignment with our life’s purpose rarely needs to be massive. A little adjustment goes a long way.  

A sudden urge to engage a little deeper with your spiritual practice may dominate. When the world calls on us to address its sorrows, we need the kind of teachings that can hold the complexities of the moment. Study the works of those that grappled with the greatest challenges humanity has known while remaining clear about their work, their principles, and their responsibilities to future generations. 

With Venus finally leaving your sign after a 3 month stint there, you have most likely healed some aspect of your relationship with your identity. What do you feel clearer about in regards to your needs, your relationships, and your boundaries within them? 

As Venus moves on, it bestows its blessings on your material life for the next 6 weeks. Prepare for this gift by giving your desk a little love, your checkbook a little extra care, and make it a point to schedule meetings about raises, bonuses, and backpay.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

August’s Full Moon brings sudden insights about or changes to your collaborations. How you partner with others is under inspection, as is your expectation of loyalty, care, and consideration. Not everyone has the same intentions as you. Energy exchanges are always a bit of a gamble and your reasons for being in them are in need of a little update. 

Get clear about the details of your partnerships so you can become more specific about how and what you are showing up for. 

With Venus back in your sign as of August 7th, you will be granted some protection from the fiercer aspects of this month’s astrology. This particular kind of protection comes through the kindness you can offer, the unions you can honestly foster, and the ways in which you care for your families, networks, and collectives. 

The more you build with the dignity of all involved in mind, the less likely ill will from others sticks. The more you remain on your own side, the more you learn from the challenges you experience in your public roles. We all need to help ourselves through the conflict that inevitably comes up. We all need to know the specific issues we face when learning how to address interpersonal problems. The more you are able to find what supports your ability to do so, the more you’ll be able to get from the second half of 2020. However, if you plan on hiding from this work, know that it will double at the very least.

Leo & Leo Rising

August’s Full Moon lights up the area of your chart that has to do with committed partnerships, plans you’ve made with others, and the relationships that you rely on to make it through life’s ups and downs. The Full Moon is full of innovative energy, making you either want extreme adventure with loved ones or to expose all elephants in the room. 

This Full Moon is a ruckus. 

The intimacy issues that arise are understood through new lenses, however. This astrology shakes things up so that we are a little freer to witness the sides we rarely see. If you are learning to take other people’s projections less personally, you’re making the kind of progress that your relationships and the world desperately need right now.  

The difficulties that have surfaced for you within your networks, friendships, and partnerships over the last 3 months have also taught you many important lessons about the ins and outs of connecting, what you need, and what you can give. Social pruning can bring up feelings of scarcity, but this year wanted you to get down to the barebones of your relationships to see who was able to build long-term and who was not. After deep diving into these dynamics, Venus finally leaves this subject alone for a moment. 

As it spends the next 6 weeks in your 12th house, it wants you to remember how important it is to beautify your inner sanctuaries so that you feel invited to rest, renew, and roar when you are ready.

By early September, Venus enters Leo and good hair days abound but so too do delays with your long-term projects. Looking cute while learning how to develop the patience of a sloth will serve you well.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

August’s Full Moon pulls focus on your work projects, their longevity, potential, and the necessary restructuring that they require of your calendar. Most likely you are coming to understand just how hard the universe laughed at you when you told it your plans on New Year’s Day, 2020. 

Life is always urging us to leave room for what it will need from us.

This year that truth couldn’t be more evident, helping you to clarify your most important roles, efforts, and applications of talent, and this Full Moon brings unforeseen opportunities for you to put it all into action. Take note of the professional projects that launch you into new roles and relationships with your work. 

With Venus finally ending it’s travels through your 10th house of career and moving into your 11th house of good fortune and friendships, pleasure wants to be pursued through those that you’ve chosen to build with. What Venus hopefully brought you over the past 3 months was a deeper understanding of your output, the costs and benefits, and the ways to honor the needs of both your public and private self. These kinds of reviews are imperative if we want to be in a respectful relationship with our life’s work. We aren’t machines but we are needed and necessary workers in the great beehive of life. Your work is an offering, but you aren’t supposed to be sacrificed in the process. If the last couple of seasons have taught you this, you are in good shape to make use of this moment and this Moon.

Libra & Libra Rising

August’s Full Moon pulls focus on your creative energy, projects, and pleasurable pursuits. When left unfulfilled, our need for a good time can destabilize what we try to keep on track. The Full Moon may bring about an unexpected foray of frenzied energy that can help you break a slump or make you want to break the bank; either way, have yourself a ball but don’t make any decisions that could negatively impact you long-term. 

As the month unfolds further, you are reminded that not everyone is going to get you, appreciate you, or even like you. 2020 drives these lessons home, not to be rude (though it will feel it sometimes) but to be clear; do not take other people’s issues personally. Mine the feelings that come up in your conflicts for their origins and roots. The issues that really set us off tend to tap into our memories of the past. This can be helpful information but it doesn’t always mean one thing is the other. The mistreatment you survived wasn’t your fault and was most likely not about you at all. The more consciously you can bring this truth to light, the more clearly you can see what current day issues do and do not have to do with you.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

While big changes are occurring in your career, August’s Full Moon pulls you inward. In order to know which ways to grow, in order to honor the relationships that help you get there, and in order to try and show up for your dreams and the manifestation of them, it’s a good idea to check your root systems. Make sure they aren’t overwatered, under-aerated, or nutrient deficient. Repot yourself when necessary. Spray your leaves often. Situate yourself so that your lighting is just right. Sometimes it’s the smallest of attunements that really help you flourish. 

Give yourself what you’ve been waiting for. 

With your ruling planet, Mars, about to spend the last 6 months of 2020 rooting around your health routines and work schedules, know that you deserve any kind of staycation you can currently dream up. Mars will spend the rest of the year digging around the areas of your life that make you work the hardest, getting you to question if there is a way to instead work smarter. 

Years are precious, days are fleeting, and every hour of it is invaluable. Any amount of choice that you have in how you spend them is a gift. Over these next months, Mars might require you to cut from your calendar things you thought were necessary, but (you’ll be delighted to find out) are less than significant in the larger success story of your life. When in doubt, listen to what your body balks at, what your energy wanes around, and what you are doing when your spirit is replenished.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Clear communication is key and by the looks of it you have some unprecedented messages to send out. Your newsletters are sources of inspiration for some and disruption for others. Not everyone can receive the messages that are ahead of the times, if others get offended by your well-thought out, researched opinion, there’s little good in worrying about it. Your focus needs to be on your long-term plans and how to help get them off the ground. With the kinds of creative projects that you have on the horizon, it looks like you’ll need all your energy to be directed towards what you can do and what isn’t wise to attempt right now.

With the last 6 months of 2020 challenging you to hone in on the creative resources (time, energy, talent) you’ve got to work with, and how to work with them in the most effective way, you don’t want to start projects that you know you can’t finish. Do not let yourself get creatively distracted; the more you can focus on your priorities, the deeper you can go with your projects. Keep thinking about the structural support you can give to them. Keep asking yourself how they can become sustainable. Keep pondering all the ways they can benefit the greatest amount of people while not taxing you in the process.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

August’s Full Moon focuses on your resources: how you make them, how you spend them, how you get paid and what you get paid. With a disruptive energy to it, this Full Moon might bring unforeseen bonuses or bills, or both. For most, it will be a tip from the cosmos about what to do with what you have. Invest your time and energy into developing the skills you most want to sustain yourself with. Full Moons always tend to magnify feelings. Pay attention to the ones that come up for you around your work, your livelihood and your desires to do things a little differently. There’s a reason why it’s rising to the surface now; trust that it’s time to.

The rest of Leo Season settles you into a larger arc of this year’s themes: home, family, and where to hang your hat. The friction that starts to aggravate you can also spur some critical debates. The difference between you and the people that raised you may be significant or barely recognizable, but something about this moment asks you to investigate both where you overlap and where you diverge. 

These last moments of 2020 can help you appreciate your caretakers, family, and roommates more than you may usually, but not because life is necessarily easy. Sometimes it’s the challenges that bring us closer or that bring us a greater awareness of what we come from and what we recreate. You get an up close and personal look at the issues from your past and you get an opportunity to understand the underpinnings of your dynamics in ways you may never have otherwise.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

It can be a challenge to feel settled in times so unprecedented and yet with so few places to go we are continually forced to witness ourselves in ways we may never have had to. The question is, what have you found out about yourself that’s been a pleasant surprise? What did you tend to take for granted about yourself that you have recently had to consciously count on? What have you been able to confront that has generally been too sneaky to surmise when life was more fast-paced? 

The Full Moon in Aquarius sheds light on these little-to-large discoveries. It encourages you to get radical in your acceptance of your life as it is, your past for what it was, and yourself for what you’ve made out of the marvelous mess you’ve been given.  

This is one of those moments where you stop asking for acceptance from people who are too afraid to be as free as you are. Just keep carving out your path and trust that if and when others want to join you, they will. 

As Mars starts to enter the more complicated parts of its 2020 path, it focuses on what you have to say and how you say it. It’s no good worrying about getting it wrong; you, me, and everyone else here will at some point regret how we have phrased something (at the very least). Speak with as much respect for yourself and others as possible, with as much humility as necessary, and as much sense as to not assume you’ll get everything right the first time. 

What you write, say, and put forth will have some hefty edits later in the year. Leave space for being a human who’s often wrong while you also give yourself permission to fight for what’s right.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

August’s Full Moon pulls you inward. It’s a chance to do some energetic clearing. It is a reason to do some soul-searching. Naps help you access the truth. Rest brings you back into a balance. Sometimes you need to check out in order to check in. 

This is a Full Moon that can offer you the opportunity to come to a deeper understanding of the doubts and disparaging thoughts that can derail your work, hound your psyche, or just use up too much of your energy trying to suppress them. Awakenings abound that allow you to gain a fresh perspective on a pain that turns out to be ingrained but not eternal. 

Shift happens, pass it on. 

The astrology of the last half of 2020 focuses heavily on the communities you serve, the colleagues you are most aligned with, and the livelihood you derive from your work alongside them. Conflicts come and go, but this year demands that you work through the ones that are the most activating for you regarding your resources. The material realm is where you come to understand more about where you tend to evade responsibility and how to engage more consciously with your agency and resources right now. The second half of August starts to crystalize many of these concepts, issues, and opportunities. Pay for what you purchased but double check the bill. The themes you are experiencing regarding your assets repeat for months to come so pay attention.
