August 2023 Monthly Horoscope
As we step into the month of August 2023, the celestial alignments herald a time of tremendous promise and vitality! The cosmic dance begins with the New Moon on the 28th of July, showering us with the divine blessings of confidence, courage, and unwavering determination, empowering us to forge ahead on our chosen path.
While the realization of our ambitions may not manifest instantly, we can take solace in the knowledge that our endeavors are poised for success during this period. The cosmic energies align harmoniously, inviting us to indulge in a splendid era of rest, leisure, celebrations, and merriment.
Full Moon in August 2023: As the Full Moon illuminates the zodiac sign of Virgo on the 12th of August, an irresistible urge will stir within us, compelling us to break free from the chains of conformity, overcome obstacles, and above all, denounce any form of injustice that may surface.
As the cosmic gears shift and Mercury begins its retrograde motion from August 23 to September 14, 2023, a wave of celestial influence ripples through our lives. During this enigmatic period, be prepared for a touch of cosmic mischief that may affect communication, travel, technology, and decision-making.
As the ethereal phenomenon of Mercury retrograde graces the celestial stage in 2023, it casts its influence upon the zodiac signs, with varying degrees of impact. Among the twelve cosmic constellations, the earth signs – Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn – will find themselves in the forefront, experiencing the strongest effects during this period.
Venus, the celestial embodiment of beauty and love, will reach its maximum brightness and greatest illuminated extent on July 7. This event signifies the peak of Venus’s visibility in the evening sky, captivating observers with its radiant splendor.
Venus cazimi in Leo in august 2023: Following this period of greatest illumination, approximately one month will elapse before Venus undergoes an astronomical phenomenon known as inferior conjunction on August 13, 2023. During this event, Venus aligns with the Sun from our perspective on Earth, transitioning from its position in the evening sky to its emergence in the morning sky.
As Venus embarks on this celestial journey, it bids farewell to its prominent presence in the evening sky, heralding a shift in its celestial manifestation. Subsequently, Venus gracefully reappears in the morning sky, illuminating the dawn with its resplendent radiance.
Aries (Mar. 21 – Apr.19)
Money. It’s easy to dismiss when you have plenty, but it’s the downfall of everything when you don’t. August marks the start of several months during which the financial side of life will be more important than usual and some tough decisions are going to have to be made. This doesn’t mean that luck won’t be on your side, especially from an employment point of view, while those closest to you should be more than supportive too. But you’ll need to speculate to accumulate and to go over old ground, that probably you thought you had already covered before…
Taurus (Apr. 20 – May 20)
Much as you adore them, it seems that everybody needs your attention. You’re basically an easygoing and an affectionate person, but you hate to be hurried and like time to do things in your own way. While you would love to sort out all the problems of your colleagues, children, family and friends, there are many of your own issues, difficulties, doubts and insecurities that are also worthy of your attention. Neglecting these feelings makes you cross and resentful, so when time for yourself is really essential, the best idea is simply and diplomatically, to point this out.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
The planets point towards some powerful relationship developments. Especially from mid-month onwards, there is the possibility of some genuinely life-altering experiences. You have a large input in the way that matters will eventually turn out, with much depending on how well you understand yourself, what motivates you and what you really want. You could use this time to make your dreams become a reality, or you can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory by being petty, devious, jealous, vengeful and controlling. The choice is clear, but where feelings are concerned, it isn’t always easy to be rational…

Cancer (Jun. 21 – Jul. 22)
It is inevitable that some compromises will have to be made. Your need for a domestic grounding is very strong and you won’t ever feel truly complete, without such a supportive network around you. In order to keep things straight, there are times when it is right to assert your needs and conversely, other times when it might prove prudent to be more compromising. While your own objectives may seem very different from those that are currently expected, to clarify both positions and then to seek a suitable compromise, is actually the best way in which to proceed.
Lucky Numbers: 7, 14, 21, 23, 29, 30
Leo (Jul. 23 – Aug. 22)
You love to be the centre of attention, although being at the centre of August’s alignments is definitely not an enviable position. It is almost as if nothing is sacred and everything you can think of is in need of a change. This is not the kind of joyful life-affirming transformation that you always hoped would happen, at least not for the immediate future anyway. But it is the slow beginnings of a long and upward journey, after the humbling and protracted realisation that while talk is cheap, it is concrete application and achievement on which we ultimately must depend.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Peacemaking is a rare gift. To help others, is admirable indeed. Harmony is a wonderful thing, but not if it is only maintained by keeping silent on many other things, that eat away at you inside and which really would be much better said. There are certain stressful situations now desperately in need of resolution, yet it is hard to see how these can be reconciled, especially when you are so closely involved. To figure out what to do for the best, endeavour to get some time away. Even the briefest interlude will help to establish a much clearer perspective.
Lucky numbers: 7, 15, 17, 19, 26, 34
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
As you bask a little more in Jupiter’s gentle glow, in many ways life moves along beautifully. Given the seductive nature of your circumstances, you could find yourself even less disposed towards the prospect of action than, as a laid-back Libran, you would usually anticipate yourself to be. However, this would be a shame when with a little application, you could then get even more from all the energies at your disposal. On the theory that discomfort is what causes us to move, it is your partnerships, domestic matters and financial affairs that will help provide the welcome impetus for change!
Lucky numbers: 10, 13, 30, 34, 41, 43
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
It may not be today, tomorrow or even next week. We all know your capacity to hide your emotions and to tell nobody a thing about anything. You could probably go for weeks without breathing if you wanted and could live on wire and battery acid if it suited your aims. But you also believe in the power of your emotions and would sacrifice everything for that one intense moment. If there are some relationship issues to which you have not been attending, then you can be certain that before too long, everything is all going to bubble out…

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Yours is the sign of the bon viveur, which is taken to mean ‘good liver’. Considering your bodily organs though, in the end almost the opposite is probably the case. You may enjoy robust good health for much of the time and a cast iron constitution that’s the envy of a horse, but nobody is indestructible and your fitness impacts on other things, such as how good you feel and your energy levels. If you don’t voluntarily take more care of yourself, life can sometimes provide the encouragement, in unexpected ways. Do something now and cut out the middleman!
Lucky numbers: 2, 17, 35, 36, 42, 44
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
It is not easy. You are familiar with this, since life for you is always something of an obstacle course and you enjoy the satisfaction of meeting and coping with the challenges you face. But usually these are practical issues, ambitions to be attained, difficulties to be overcome and goals to be accomplished. Now you are confronted with raw emotions, a grave test indeed for those to whom composure, dignity and the stifling of weakness are big issues. To be open with your feelings is the best way forward, although somehow it seems unlikely as an option you’ll pursue.
August 2023 Lucky numbers: 12, 19, 23, 29, 31, 36
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
According to august 2023 horoscope, you are definitely individualistic, but you are also broadly sociable and humanitarian, caring deeply about society and about the world at large. One criticism levelled at your sign, is that you are too impersonal and put more energy into these big issues, then you do into looking after yourself. The cosmic climate now draws your attention to such matters and insists you take the opportunity to establish a firm basis for your life. Home is your new battleground, with whatever is decided between now and shortly after your next birthday, having the potential to impact on your life forever.
Lucky numbers: 5, 21, 23, 28, 34, 37
Pisces (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20)
You have a lot to do! This could be with your job and career aims, more in connection with your everyday duties and obligations, or simply in organising your life so that it runs most productively. In many cases though, it is probably a combination of all three things. Since you are in for such a busy month of august 2023, try to take extra care of yourself, to ensure that you stay in tip-top condition. With luck, your closest relationships prove supportive of what you have to do, with the most special being those where you can grow in maturity together.
