Your August Horoscope Has Arrived!

The sun is in Leo, and the lion's fierce energy guides everything you do this month. (Maybe that explains your sudden obsession with cheetah-print everything…) Our cosmic friends at Mojave Rising tell us this is the time to celebrate your roaring inner goddess. Here's what's on tap for every sign in the zodiac.

1 Leo1  

Leo

It’s all of the feels, all of the time, for you, passionate Leo. This month marks your return to childhood innocence, so it’s worth revisiting the very things that brought you unbridled joy when you were younger--like mindlessly doodling in your Lisa Frank coloring book (it’s “for adults,” thank you very much) or running wild in your own backyard. 

2 Virgo1  

Virgo

With Venus entering your sign this month, it’s worth exploring your sensuous side. Think: a candle-making or wine-tasting class. For something a little less hands-on, venture to your nearest department store to sniff as many perfume blotters as you can stand until you finally find your perfect scent. (Hint: It’s probably not “vanilla musk.”)

3 Libra1  

Libra

Push aside your signature tact and borrow from the lion’s fiery confidence. Whether it’s trying a flashy, new fashion trend (hi, off the shoulders) or unexpected color palette, now is your time to live more fabulously.

4 Scorpio1  

Scorpio

Feeling a little stuck lately? Shake it off by getting goofy. Go see an improv troupe or silly movie--or just make a date with your funniest pal. The more you laugh, the more inspiration will find you this August. 

5 Sagittarius1  

Sagittarius

It’s time to hit restart on everything, Sag. Mars is in your sign, and it’s beckoning you to get the ball rolling. (You know, like with that adult education class you’ve been considering for the past six months.) Not sure where to start? Take a mindless detour though a new neighborhood or try an outside-the-box recipe to get your gears going.

6 Capricorn1  

Capricorn

It’s a good time to be you, Capricorn. The stars are showing that exciting changes (Love! Career! Travel!) are ahead, so use this month to relax and enjoy the moment before things get crazy. Solo spa date, anyone?

7 Aquarius1  

Aquarius

The theme of this month is getting out of your head and opening your heart. Immerse yourself in a romance novel (the cheesier, the better) or pack some tissues and let it all loose at the sappiest movie you can stream on Netflix. The emotional cleanse will set you up for success for the rest of the year.

8 Pisces1  

Pisces

You’re a dreamer, Pisces, and you sometimes need a little help staying grounded. But this month, let your imagination roam free and act on those fantasies, however weird they might seem. (C'mon, haven't you always wanted to host a murder mystery party?) Whatever you do, don’t rein in your creativity.

9 Aries1  

Aries

Sometimes you need to go inward to make outward changes. So head to the beach before summer ends equipped with nothing but your headphones, a weighty paperback and a willingness to explore all of your thoughts and emotions. In confronting your issues head on, you’ll find the clarity (and calm) you’ve been searching for recently.

10 Taurus1  

Taurus

Buy a lottery ticket! Book a girls’ trip! Make a batch of floral ice cubes! Joy will find you in unexpected places this month, Taurus--so keep your eyes wide open for new experiences and loosen your grip on the things that typically tie you down.

11 Gemini1  

Gemini

You have two very different sides, Gem---and, let’s be honest, they’re constantly at odds. This month, let your logical nature give way to the more playful part of your personality by connecting with others through some type of social activity--think karaoke night shenanigans or a good old-fashioned garden party.

12 Cancer1  

Cancer

After a few months of floating in fantasyland, it’s time to come back down to earth. Reconnect by doing something physical--like tango class, or a hiking excursion. By finding your literal footing, you’ll be able to do so figuratively as well.
