Pisces August 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


While August is usually a busy month for you, this is being modified by a need to work smarter and also by a call from the professional gods themselves to take things slowly. When the Sun returned to your work sector on the 23rd July, something he does at that time every year, it was to spend a month shining the solar spotlight on your work situation and job matters. With a solar eclipse on the job front on the 11th August creating the potential for auspicious new beginnings, there was every reason to throw yourself into the deep end from the get go.

Except you were unlikely to have got away with it. Not only did the Sun return to find Mars in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, with the wind down of your old Mars cycle underway, but a total lunar eclipse there on the 28th July might have stopped you in your tracks. Fortunately, Mercury’s retrograde turn in your work sector two days earlier had already seen the professional gods apply their emergency brake, otherwise you would have crashed head first into this. As Mars and the North Node demanded a slower approach, the professional gods had already decided on a slower approach.

This more measured approach allows you to better enjoy this month’s other delights, which include Jupiter’s first full month in direct motion in an adventurous part of your chart. This is also a stunning month for communication and for personal and professional networking, friendship and relationship building in general. The Sun only left a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on the 23rd July, with even the professional gods realising the importance of having a balance between work and play. A solar eclipse on the 11th August and Mercury’s direct turn on the 19th August will give work and job matters all the traction they need.

Love 2017Pisces August 2018 Love Horoscope

The Sun may have left your romantic sector on the 23rd July, but last month’s solar eclipse has brought the element of fate into play in a way that has given matters of the heart a life of their own. You no longer need planetary activity to keep the spirit of romance alive. However, the Moon’s return from the 8th August to the 10th August, will add more fuel to the romantic flame. Coming full circle from last month’s solar eclipse, these romantically charged lunar vibes are likely to also bring the element of fate into play or at least remind you that it is already in play.

Yet while matters of the heart now have a life of their own, there is some very real focus on your relationships, even before the Sun’s return to your relationship sector on the 23rd August. This is the point of every year when the solar spotlight will always fall on your relationships in a real, authentic and objective way. When the Sun is here you can’t stick your head in the sand, with the Sun keeping it real. Yet by the time the Sun returns the reality will be that there is something special developing. That something special is the fact that you not only start the month with Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships already in your relationship sector but Ceres, dwarf planet and the queen of nurturing as well.

These are sister planets, with Ceres focused on updating your relationship needs and Venus on making sure those needs are being met. While Venus will leave on the 7th August, Ceres is here until early next month, making sure that the Sun gets the message from the get go.  In addition your relationships are getting the kind of support from the communication gods that is not the norm. From the 8th August, this even includes a chance to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.

Money 2017Pisces August 2018 Money Horoscope

Because you have had continuous planetary activity in your income sector since 1926, this is something that never goes completely off the boil. Yet Eris, dwarf planet and the planet responsible for keeping the focus continuously on income matters for the last nine decades, will always turn retrograde at this time of year. With Chiron having turned retrograde here in June, this puts both planets in your income sector in retrograde motion. With the Sun in your work sector until the 23rd August and Mercury all month, as they explore new and untapped job potential, the doors are open to the past, second chances and untapped income potential.

With your income sector the only one of your two money houses occupied at the start of the month, all the money gods are focused on income matters and on the past. That changes with Venus’ return to your financial sector on the 7th August. This is the point where the balance of power will shift and ahead of the Sun and Mercury’s return next month, it is not just that there will be more focus on money matters, but here the focus is on moving things forward.

Income matters will remain focused more on the rear view mirror for the rest of the year, leaving Venus free to focus more on new financial growth. With the Sun not returning until later next month and Venus here from the 8th August to the 9th September, this gives her over a month to focus exclusively on fuelling your financial confidence, updating your expectations and to trigger the laws of attraction. Venus’ job is to focus on the what, with the Sun and Mercury returning next month to focus on the ‘when, where and how’.

Career 2017Pisces August 2018 Career Horoscope

The focus will always be on work and job matters at this time of year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your work sector, always has and always will. However, what you don’t usually have is a solar eclipse on the 11th August, with its links to both a total solar eclipse here last August and a lunar eclipse earlier in the year. With another total lunar eclipse next January, whatever is happening behind the scenes is bigger than just the Sun and his annual visit.

That something is the North Node, who has been in your work sector since May 2017 and even after leaving in early November, this will continue to give work and job matters the green light, while pulling things forward in a way that brings fate and destiny into play. The only reason there are eclipses here is because the North Node is here and while these are spectacular events staged six months apart, they are outlets for all that has been building behind the scenes. Whatever last August’s solar eclipse triggered has been building behind the scenes for nearly a year, with the 11th August giving them an outlet.

It is a little like having an active volcano, where instead of pressure building up, opportunities and potential does, until every so often the volcano needs to blow its roof in order to expel everything that is building. For that reason, for the whole time the Moon is in your work sector, from the 10th August to the 12th August and not just during the solar eclipse on the 11th August, expect the unexpected. With Mercury in retrograde motion here until the 19th August, while solar eclipse are more about new beginnings and opportunities, he’ll ensure there is also access to untapped potential. The Sun will leave on the 23rd August, but Mercury will stay on until early next month, in order to tie up loose ends and to run with anything the solar eclipse triggers.
