Every indicator for a busy month is here and then some this month, creating the potential for a month that is manically busy, both at work and with life in general. While the main focus is on your work sector this month, the full title the ancients gave to this area of your chart is the sector of ‘hard work and service to others’. That means paid and unpaid work. Whatever makes your life busy, expect it to expand exponentially this month. You can thank three different factors all coming together to create the perfect storm. The first is the month itself. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your work sector, so this will always be the potentially busiest month in any year.
Potentially, because if Mars happens to be moving through, this will take the crown. Mars only moves through your work sector once every two years, creating the busiest six weeks in any two year period. But when the busiest month in any year meets the busiest year in a two year period, then this moves to a whole new level. And Mars is spending the whole of August in your work sector. However, there is a third factor and that is the North Node, making its first visit to your work sector in 17 years.
This is the force behind a total solar eclipse here on the 22nd August and the major new developments and beginnings this could open the door to. However, there are some safeguards to ensure life doesn’t become all work and no play. The most important is Venus, who is in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart until the 26th August. There couldn’t be a better planet to champion a need for balance between work and play, especially in an important month for relationship matters.
Pisces August 2017 Love Horoscope
A month that has both love and relationship gods on the field at the same time can create some competition, but they are happy to stay in their own lane this month. Mainly because of the players concerned. Long before the Sun returns to your relationship sector on the 23rd August, as he does at this time every year, Mercury is on board and on a mission to give your relationships a voice. Mercury returned on the 26th July for what should have been a 15 day visit aimed at giving your relationships a voice.
Yet the planet of communication will instead spend the whole month here, thanks to a retrograde turn on the 13th August. This will open the doors to the past and second chances, especially when it comes to giving the past and unsaid words a voice. With no urgency and challenges, this is a month where the main focus is on getting the communication lines open, something that will continue even after the Sun returns. What is unexpected, is to still have something unfolding on the romantic front. At this time last year there was no romantic activity still playing out. A year on it is not only still playing out, but the best is still to come.
The Sun and Mars both left your romantic sector last month, but held back by her retrograde phase Venus, planet of love had yet to return. The most romantically charged weeks of the year won’t even start until Venus’ return on the 1st August. While Venus will leave on the 26th July, with Ceres on board until late September a romantic chapter still has the rest of this month and the majority of next month to run its course.
Pisces August 2017 Money Horoscope
The first half of the year was dominated by conflict between income and financial forces. This was a result of having Jupiter in your financial sector for the first time in 12 years and an unusual amount of planetary activity moving through your income sector. Every planet that moved through your income sector moved into opposition with Jupiter and when Jupiter turned retrograde, they did it all over again. This is the reason why the first half of the year was fraught with the potential for financial tension.
Those times have definitely changed and both sides have emerged stronger because of it. This month income and money matters take two very different paths, creating a situation where you have two completely different financial months. Fortunately those paths don’t cross, allowing income and money matters to stay in their own lanes and in a trouble free and most importantly, financial tension freeway (correct). It is as though the money gods decided on a diplomatic solution, with money matters as a whole taking the road ahead and income matters the road behind. For with Jupiter leaving your financial sector in early October, financial growth is now expanding outwards, with nothing but opportunity and free paths out in front of you.
There will be some pressure from Pluto, but this will simply keep you on your toes. In the meantime, with Eris in her first full month in retrograde motion in your income sector and Uranus turning retrograde here on the 3rd August, income matters are more focused on the road behind, the past, second chances and untapped income potential.
Pisces August 2017 Career Horoscope
From the get go there is a need to be aware that August is going to be crazy busy. Just one of the many factors in play in isolation and that would be the case, but put them together and there is the potential for something game changing. The reason why I’m telling you this up front is to warn you to pace yourself. From the get go there is a need to recognise the warning signs for where you might be starting to work yourself into the ground.
The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your work sector and until leaving on the 23rd August the spotlight is on your work situation and job matters, as it is at this time every year. However, this year you also have Mars here, making his first visit in two years. The six weeks that Mars spends in your work sector are always going to be the busiest six weeks in a two year period, both at work and in life in general. Having returned on the 21st July and not due to leave until early August, Mars is here all month and he has no compunction about working you into the ground.
All Mars wants is to get things done and make things happen. This was already going to create a busy month, but throwing in the North Node takes this to a whole new level. This not only brings the element of fate into play and the fact that potential has been building since early May, but is the reason for a total solar eclipse on the 22nd August. This sets the scene for major new beginnings and new doors opening. This is just four days before Saturn’s direct turn in your career sector on the 26th August is due to turn the tide on the career front.
