Your Monthly Horoscope for August
The weeks before your birthday Sun slots into place should be a time to wind down and recharge your batteries, giving yourself a chance to reflect over recent events and sort out plans ahead. But you may not get as much rest and relaxation as you would wish with too much going on with a hyper-active Mars and Uranus in Taurus and clashes with a demanding Saturn as well. It'll be stop start, too much and then too little in quick succession. You are a coper by temperament but also highly-strung, so the more you can calm your nervous tension and take it all as it comes the better. Just keep telling yourself that this too will pass. Which it will. Mercury in your own sign will keep you chatting happily and warm hearted friends will be on hand for the first ten days. Not draining your energy or over stretching yourself will be important. Into the final ten days, you'll sigh with relief as your birthday Sun boosts your morale and your energy. Differences of opinion should wind down and you'll be working hard, taking the lead and making fast progress.
