Libra August 2017 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


While Venus will leave an adventurous part of your chart on 1st August and there are no more planets to pass the torch to, it will take very little to keep a sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure alive. This will live on in the two alliances Venus was able to build last month. One with the South Node in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and the other with Jupiter, in Libra. It is a lunar eclipse in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on the 8th August that will come wrapped in a sense of adventure.

At the same time, as Jupiter prepares to move into his final two months in Libra on the 11th August, this allows you to look to and see the future for the journey that it is. Having returned to Libra last September, you are now in the final months of what is the foundation year for a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. Things have not always been easy, with conflict with relationship forces in the first half of the year only now behind you. Venus’ sense of adventure has given you the courage and confidence to make these final months count.

Where there was relationship tensions or challenges in the first half of the year, something authentic is emerging. With Eris spending her first full month in retrograde motion in your relationship sector, Uranus turning retrograde here on the 3rd August and Saturn in retrograde motion in your communication sector until the 26th August, there is something special developing. There is also something special developing on the career front this month. Yet there are two things happening here, one you can and the other you can’t see. What you can see is everything coming together on the career front. What you can’t see is how this is lining you up for some serious income growth from early October.

Love 2017Libra August 2017 Love Horoscope

With a lunar eclipse in your romantic sector and the doors open to the past and second chances on the relationship front, you know this is going to be an interesting month. And for once ‘interesting’ is not code for challenging, especially on the relationship front. In fact, there is some special support for the rebuilding process, which began back in June. Every Libran born after 1926 has had Eris in their relationship sector for their entire lifetime, which is most of us. She is the one planet that has been there through all your relationships and through a lifetime experience.

So when Eris turned retrograde on the 20th July this was bigger than any one relationship, with a chance to reflect, review and make sense of what has been a challenging year. It was having Jupiter in Libra that has raised the bar on the relationship front, while demanding a more authentic balance between your personal and relationship needs. Much of that is sorted now. But with the help of Uranus’ retrograde turn on the 3rd August and having Saturn in retrograde motion in your communication sector until the 26th August, this is an opportunity for rebuilding.

Meanwhile, the Moon will move through your romantic sector from the 7th August to the 9th August. It is these romantically charged lunar vibes that create the lunar eclipse here on the 8th August. This is a more fateful version of the Full Moon that falls here at this time every year. Because the South Node has been here since May, this will be a trigger for all the romantic sentiment and potential that has been building since then.

Money 2017Libra August 2017 Money Horoscope

For the first time since January, you have a month with no planetary activity in either of your two money houses. It was Venus’ departure from your financial sector in early July that not only brought her own month long visit to a close, but five months of planetary activity. This brings you to a transition period, where the money gods themselves are taking a break and letting things play out on the financial front. It is while the money gods take a break that the professional gods will take the field, though with an undercover money god in their ranks.

For when things start up again in early October it will be with lucky Jupiter’s return to your income sector, kicking off your luckiest and most potentially lucrative income year in over a decade. So while money matters are left to run their course, the money gods themselves are preparing for massive new income opportunities and growth ahead. That is why they are so interested in what is happening on both the job and career fronts this month. Knowing the importance of having the right professional momentum, it is understandable that the money gods will want to watch from the bleachers.

However, they do have one undercover money god on the field or will do from the 1st August to the 26th August. This is when Venus, planet of money will make a late return to your career sector. Venus will also work to steer your professional game in a lucrative direction when she moves through, but she doesn’t usually have such a large target to aim for. Fortunately, with the Moon in your income sector from the 30th July to the 2nd August, your nose for money will be sharp as Venus returns.

Career 2017Libra August 2017 Career Horoscope

By this time last year all the planetary activity in your career sector for the year had run its course, having ended with the Sun’s return on the 23rd July. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of July in your career sector, shining the solar spotlight on your career and professional situation, matters and options. Last year the only planets to move through with the Sun were Venus and Mercury and as they both left before the Sun, the whole update was over within six weeks.

That is not the case this year. Mars, making his first visit in two years left on the 21st July, two days before the Sun on the 23rd July. However, unlike last year this did not bring things to a close this year and you have two planets to thank for that. Two planets that are considered sister planets, so similar that one is simply a deeper version of the other. I am talking about Venus and Ceres, the two goddesses of the solar system. Ceres is making her first visit in four years and returned two weeks before the Sun left. It was only when the Sun and Mars left that this dwarf planet and the queen of nurturing was able to make her presence felt.

Nine days separate the Sun’s departure and Venus’ return on the 1st August and Ceres has been using this time to get to the heart of your real professional priorities, even to a point of redefining your definition of professional success. By the time Venus returns to attract opportunities on the 1st August, you’ll have a much better sense of what you want. With Venus here until the 26th August and Ceres until late September, this is the month where everything will come together. Where last year things have run their course, this year they’re just getting started.
