Aries August 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


On the surface this is an uncomplicated month and in fact a stunning month across many aspects of your life. The problem you might face, especially in the early days of the month, is the fallout from the professional pressure or work/life balance tension of the last few months and a total lunar eclipse in the final days of July. Yet on the other side you’re about to reap the benefits big time. The main tension over recent months has come from pressure between your home and professional lives. Yet with the Sun no longer in your home and family sector, this has dropped back.

Yet as opportunities literally explode across the income, work and career fronts, all of a sudden work/life balance is the gift that will help you pace yourself and capitalise on all the available options. These include Mars retrograding back into your career sector on the 13th August, new developments on the job front and the doors opening to untapped income potential. Everything comes together at the right time, to make this an extraordinary month across the income, work and career fronts. This could have been a problem, if you hadn’t just been through work/life balance boot camp.

For with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of August in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and a solar eclipse here on the 11th August, life won’t be allowed to become all work and no play. Even if the Sun will contribute to a new charge on the job front from the 23rd August, until then he doesn’t care how well the stars align professionally, life can’t be all work and no play. With Venus opening the door to special relationship developments from the 7th August, you can have it all, but only with the right work/life balance.

Love 2017Aries August 2018 Love Horoscope

When the Sun returned to your romantic sector last month things did not get off to a good start. Within days of the Sun’s return he was confronted by an opposition with Mars and a total lunar eclipse. This all played out in the final days of July, with all roadblocks over by the time you move into the new month. That’s when the gift will become obvious. Having had a chance to shake the tree, confront any roadblocks and push through any barriers, you’re able to start the month with a clear sense of what you want from love and some incredible resources.

Those resources include having Mercury, planet of communication in your romantic sector all month and in retrograde motion until the 19th November. Mercury returned in early July for what should have been a two week visit aimed at giving your heart a voice and putting heart and mind on the same page. Yet here for over two months, Mercury is spending the first 19 days of this month giving your heart, the past and unsaid words a voice. Mercury is already holding the doors open to the past and second chances and will be when a solar eclipse on the 11th August brings the potential for new beginnings.

There is also something special developing on the relationship front, with Venus returning to your relationship sector on the 7th August. With the Sun not returning until later next month, this is early in the year for the planet of love to return. Normally moving through in 24 days, Venus is here for a month before leaving early next month, but will return for a double dip visit later in the year. This gives Venus time to slowly bring the magic back into your relationships, in tandem to what is happening on the romantic front.

Money 2017Aries August 2018 Money Horoscope

There is not so much a power shift taking place within the money gods this month, but the balance of power shifting. Until last month Jupiter had been in retrograde motion in your financial sector since March. This put money matters into review mode, just as things were starting to move on the income front. This gave the Sun, Mercury and Venus time to move through your income sector and launch new income momentum and for Uranus to settle in, when he returned for the first time in eight decades in May.

This saw money matters position themselves at the rear view mirror, leaving the road free for new income growth. A transition from one to the other began with Jupiter’s direct turn in your financial sector last month, but still at a standstill for much of July, money matters were happy to keep a low profile. This gave you time to still work behind the scenes, focused more on rebuilding your financial confidence. In his first full month in direct motion Jupiter is now starting to gain momentum and due to leave in early November, is ready to push financial growth.

In the meantime, with the road behind now free, Uranus’ retrograde turn on the 8th August will give income matters a chance to turn their focus onto the past and the road already travelled. This is Uranus’ first visit to your income sector since he was last here from 1935 to 1942 and due to retrograde back over ground already covered, this is a chance to regroup. With a lot happening on the professional front this month this will give you even more access to untapped income potential, while the money gods focused on income matters are able to step aside, leaving room for new overall financial growth.

Career 2017Aries August 2018 Career Horoscope

Things get really interesting on the professional front this month and for once, ‘interesting’ is not code for challenging. If there was any professional pressure or work/life balance tension over recent months that ended when the Sun took the solar spotlight off home and family matters late last month. Yet while this did illuminate any work/life balance issues, with such positive conditions in play across the income, work and career fronts, this was something that can only work to your advantage. Last month was also dominated by a coming together of a number of the smaller players across all three fronts, but this month it’s time for the big boys.

You start the month with Venus in your work sector and while she will leave on the 7th August, it won’t be before fuelling your job confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. With Ceres staying on to keep the wheels turning and the Sun returning on the 23rd August, work and job matters are in safe hands. However, as auspicious as the conditions on the job front are, they are not extraordinary in a game changing way. It is on the career and income fronts that you will find the extraordinary and game changing developments.

As Saturn continues to retrograde back through your career sector, Uranus’ retrograde turn in your income sector on the 8th August not only puts them on the same page in terms of being focused on the past and untapped potential, but physically together. Aligned from the 13th August to the 15th September, this is a powerful coming together of income and career forces. The 13th August is the same day that Mars will retrograde back in for a rare double dip visit to your career sector. Turning direct on the 28th August, Mars’ warrior spirit will help you capitalise on all the new and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts.
