Pisces Forecast for August 2014
By Susan Miller
August will be filled with many sweet developments, and it certainly will be a departure from the months that spanned January to June. You have already covered the hard part of the year - now you have mostly blue skies ahead.
First, your financial outlook is clearly getting better by the minute. Mars has been the culprit here, for Mars was forcing your expenses up at a rapid rate. This active planet has been in Libra a very long time, from holiday time, December 7 to July 25, last month. A financial house of the horoscope is never an easy place to host Mars, no matter what your rising sign happens to be.
As an aside, a note of explanation: We all have two charts, a custom natal chart, and a solar chart, where the sign of the Sun is kept at the horizon line and all house cusps are at zero degrees. To only read one chart and not the other will never give you the entire picture.
All Pisces began seeing their finances gyrating starting in December of last year, but in ways you may not have expected. Mars in your eighth house of other people's money, including credit, loans, insurance payouts, taxes, company benefits, divorce or court settlements, child support, bankruptcy (yours or your clients' who now can't pay you), student financial aid or scholarships, and also money you give or loan a close family member or friend that you love, and want to help.
One of these areas has been a pressured focus over the nearly eight months, but it was not necessarily your fault. You may have been laid off in a merger. Or, you may have become ill and not able to work for pay for many weeks. If you are self-employed, a damaged product came down the assembly line that you were not able to sell, despite the heavy costs you poured into its development. If you are an entertainer, you may have had to cancel a concert, and refund all the tickets. There are always so many reasons we all can run into unexpected financial difficulties.
Now that pressure will fall away as Mars has departed, and more money will come in. You may be able to pay off those owed, pay down debt, or deal with the unfairness of a financial situation, cut your losses, and move on. You will have to watch what happens at the full moon lunar eclipse October 8, for that eclipse will again bring decisions about money, but more about money you earn, not the "other people's money" that I had listed here, above. The October 8 eclipse may change the way you make your income - a new source may show up immediately or within six months of the eclipse. Change is necessary, and this October 8 eclipse will relate directly to news and events that occurred near the monster eclipse April 15. If that was a terrible time for you, the October 8 eclipse may bring a solution. As you see, you are moving toward progress.
Mars is now in Scorpio, an infinitely better place for you to host Mars, for Scorpio is a water sign like yours, and best of all, it is touring your mind-expanding ninth house, which indicates that long distance or international travel may be on your agenda. You may not know this yet. If you say you cannot leave town due to a heavy work load (and you will be busy - more about that later), foreign people may come to visit you. You may have already found this to be true, as Mars entered Scorpio on July 25 and will remain in Scorpio until September 13.
There are several ways the ancient astrologers felt a person could grow intellectually as a result of Mars in your ninth house. Travel and by forming international relationships is one way to grow, as is enrolling in the university for an impressive degree. Legal matters are always instructive. Most people associate law with going to court, but you can consult with a lawyer to file a trademark or patent, for example, or to help you write a fair contract. Publishing and broadcasting come under this area too, because it is where a reporter or editor will do much research to write a piece, and in so doing, gain a great deal of knowledge. Spirituality, prayer, investigation into philosophy, and religion (the dogma, not the actual faith) also form this area of the ninth house, so you may decide to take a weekend retreat. That is a great idea.
Watch August 15, when powerhouse Pluto will reach out from his perch in your house of friendship and hopes and wishes to Mars in the most positive way - a successful friend or one from a pedigree family may be outstandingly helpful to one of the areas I mentioned on or near this day. Friday, August 15, rates four stars. Pluto rules Scorpio, and Mars does too, giving a kind of double dip of luck, and giving you a competitive edge to your efforts to you on this day, or the day that comes before, August 14.
Keep in mind that sometimes Mars can cause tension, say, if your editor changes your deadline and needs your work earlier. Saturn is in this house too, so no doubt you will have to work hard on all publishing or broadcasting projects. Your work seems to have worldwide potential, and in the end, you will have much to show for your efforts. If you are a lawyer, you may have the case of your life, where you will have to weigh your options of how to present it.
It is fortunate that both Saturn and Mars will be in this house together - Mars will make you want to make decisions and actions quickly, but Saturn will hold you back and ask you to reflect on what you are doing, and to check the accuracy of all facts, on any of the fronts you may be focusing on my list. This sounds like a winning combination. Both Mars and Saturn will be in highly supportive Scorpio, so no reason to be concerned. Both of these planets will be conjoin on August 25, so you may have a dilemma to solve. Pisces born near March 7-8 will feel this aspect and get even more benefit from other Pisces readers.
Now let's turn to your work and health, not only for August (even though it will be extra special in August), but also through 2014 and first half of 2015. Last month, good fortune Jupiter had just moved into your sixth house of work assignments. This suggests you will have outstanding projects to work on, and possibly you may be sent to very chic, sumptuous settings. What you will be doing will be very different than before, and it appears you will be interacting much more often with luxury or expensive designer brands. Leo rules these royal areas of life, so it seems your environment in doing your job could not be better. You also will be able to find superb recruits if you hire, not only in August, but all year. August is special because on July 26, you had the very finest new moon of the year, and it changed the energy from the new moon that occurred last year in Leo to one much, much more impressive.
Your health also comes under the sixth house, and as we all learn in life, good health is to be treasured. Jupiter is considered the great healer, and even the planet of miracles, so this will be a superb month to focus on your wellbeing too, in the sense of mind-body and spirit. Whether you feel robust and in top health, or you have been struggling with a chronic condition, in the weeks and months to come, you will have every reason to believe you will improve substantially. Jupiter in Leo will certainly have you interacting with several distinguished, accomplished doctors, even if you don't have the best insurance. Sometimes, when you knock on the doors of enough top-level doctors, you will hear, "We are booked." Or, "We don't take health insurance anymore." One distinguished physician will likely see you. This house also rules doing in vitro for infertility. Keep the faith and be optimistic, dear Pisces.
If you want to lose weight, you must begin this month, ideally in the first half. I have found that Jupiter in this house is the best place for you to have Jupiter so that this planet can help you slim down and learn to keep the weight off by eating foods so delicious and nutritious that you would not want to go back to old ways. Some students of astrology may be scratching their heads, but I test every theory thoroughly. I know that Jupiter often expands all it touches, including people who have Jupiter on their Sun (like Leo will have this year - yes, Leo will have to watch their portion sizes). However, Jupiter in the sixth house can slim you down if Jupiter brings enthusiasm (its specialty) for sensible eating, fresh air, and exercise - do nothing too gung ho if you are out of shape.
The full moon on August 10, influential for plus four days, will be in Aquarius, 18 degrees. It may bring you final medical test results and a diagnosis on any concern you may have had, or have you interacting with medical personnel in a hospital, perhaps for a procedure, screening, or test, or to help support a friend or relative who will have to go in. It's also possible a mystery will be revealed, as the twelfth house where this full moon will illuminate rules secrets, both yours and that of others. Uranus will be beautifully oriented to the full moon, so you may be surprised by some of the findings, in the happiest sense (unless you have something in your chart I cannot see). You will start to feel the positive nature of this full moon earlier, by Friday, August 8, another dazzler of a day. If you do have to see your doctor or call in on that day, you should be smiling, unexpectedly so!
At work and concerning your health, your glittering star power will keep on rolling. Over the weekend of August 16, 17, and on Monday August 18, Venus will conjoin Jupiter, certainly an aspect rated five stars. Again, both these highly benefic planets will meet in your house of health and work. This will be a centerpiece aspect too this month, as Venus brings not only happiness but also profit, and Jupiter does too. That elegant star couple will meet in Leo or the first time in twelve years, and that is why they are bringing sparkle to your health and work sector.
I have a feeling you will be invited to a magical party on August 23, 24, or 25, or that you may throw a fete (either way, a great idea). Or, you may get a raise or special fee, TOO, for the sixth house rules projects and appearances. You seem to certainly have the Midas touch, as that is what these two tend to do when they team up. Venus is now in your workaday sector, and Uranus is in your salary and income sector, so you truly should feel luckier than a Leprechaun to be so in demand! (Remember, this is not about gambling or winning the lotto, but by working for your money. Many would love to trade places with you.) Health news should be positive too - perhaps your health insurance will decide to cover much of your outgo.
The tone of the month will switch to romance with your one-and-only committed partner on the new moon, August 25, in Virgo, 2 degrees. This moon is more about attached Pisces than those entirely single and not dating. This crazy-in-love new moon seems to draw you and your romantic one-and-only exceptionally close, with very tender feelings at play interacting between you. You will be ready to advance your relationship to a place of great closeness, and something that occurred earlier in the month, or in July, may have led you to make this decision. Neptune, your ruler, will oppose the Sun, so make very sure you are ready to take this big step. Do you know your partner well? Have you talked about all the big topics of a marriage? If you feel you are in love, you will feel Neptune's influence in terms of love.
Let me give you a bit of insight about Venus and Neptune. Venus may spark love, but it is Neptune's role to advance love to a higher octave, where you become mature to the point that you are willing to be selfless and will generously put your partner's needs and desires before yours. This is considered the most mature expression of love. In time, Neptune's influence will grow in you, so if you are young, you may later look back and see how far you have come in your emotional bonding together.
If you are self-employed, in business in a creative field, you may now make your alliance official. With Neptune active, you may have a fantastic partner to sign, but perhaps it would not be a good idea to have your partner handle the financials. Do background checks, but having said that, I am very upbeat about this new moon, which will be influential for ten days AFTER the new moon appears.
If you want to take action, you can in September, but not in October, as Mercury will be retrograde, and also, two eclipses are due that month. September will be highly productive, just like this month will be for you in all four weeks, so you have time.
If your birthday falls on February 21, plus five days, the August 25 new moon in Virgo will be very important to you, even life changing! This all sounds so exciting! Is a wedding in the wind, dear Pisces?
Work, your health, and life in general are looking mighty sunny, dear Pisces. The past months of 2014 have not been easy, but you are now heading into a different, more encouraging part of the sea that will motivate you and bring back your famous optimism.
First on the agenda will be to strengthen your health. If you've put off important annual exams and screenings, set those appointments. Doctor's offices are often less rushed in August, with less waiting time. Pisces is a delicate sign when it comes to the constitution, which is why the news of Jupiter's appearance to the area of health is so exciting. No matter what you present level of health happens to be, you now have every reason to believe you can ratchet up to more a powerful level of vitality. If you have a chronic health concern, you may want to go for a second opinion or do research to see if new a medical breakthrough has occurred since you last consulted with your doctor. You must begin your investigation during the first week of August to have the most cosmic support behind you. If you need to address infertility, this month would be the time to do so, the earlier the better, prior to the new moon, August 25.
On the job, your talents will be in such high demand that your head may be spinning. The compensation you receive should be generous (don't be shy about asking for your due), and the work that you achieve will have abundant room for your creativity. These projects can now later lift your profile quite high in your industry. The meeting of Venus and Jupiter on August 18 will bring so much praise you're likely to blush, an episode that will certainly infuse you with energy and give you a huge boost of confidence.
By the full moon over the weekend of August 9-10, you may notice that all you want is rest and privacy. Take it - you should have it. Your projects, especially ones that involve writing, speaking, editing, or digital coding, seem to have been demanding, and you need to slip into something comfy and swing in a hammock. Still, this same full moon may find you taking a test in a hospital, or getting back final medical results, and a plan of action can be set.
Sunshine is coming to one special relationship in the days that follow the new moon, August 25. You may commit your love forever, or simply move a loving relationship to the next, closer level. If you are already married, the strong prominence of Mercury this month suggests that you may be thinking about buying a house or condo, or doing something significant to the house you have now. If you like, you can use this energy for building an important business alliance or joint venture - the choice is yours.
There is one little note, not meant to spoil the pudding. If you will be making a life altering decision about a partnership at the end of August or early September, make sure you have all the facts, and have looked at the situation from all angles. You need to know that you have accurate facts about your partner, and know your partner's integrity well. Neptune will oppose the Sun and new moon, and cause fog or confusion at decision time. Later you may wish you had certain information before taking the jump. Neptune is Pisces' ruler, which only means this aspect would affect you more directly. Still, with Mercury the planet ruling Virgo, the sign of the new moon, in elegant angle to Saturn, AND Mars, I feel the outcome will be lasting and loving. Business deals can be set now too, with great profit potential likely.
This is a bright month, and nothing like the difficult ones you came though earlier this year. With Mars brilliantly lighting your foreign people and places sector, you can plan a trip at any time you please in August. It might be a honeymoon or simply a beautiful romantic trip for two, to a place you've never been that has the power to light your imagination and send you back home completely recharged and inspired.
Dates to note: PISCES
Most important dates for love, meetings or actions: August 7, 8, 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, 25, and 30-31.
Your health is due for an important upswing now that Jupiter has moved into Leo last month. Even if you have a chronic condition, you have every reason to hope a new breakthrough may arrive to help you. Investigate all ways to fortify your constitution.
Venus will tour Leo from August 12 to September 6, an ideal time to buy new workout gear for the gym or sports. Looking great will improve your performance. Schedule annual medical and dental exams now, before you get busy in September.
You will need privacy and rest on the full moon August 10, so don't resist. You have been putting out a lot of effort at work, and although you are thrilled at how in demand your talents are these days, you need to recharge. Take time at this full moon.
Mars will tour Scorpio all month, giving you the chance to fly to an exotic point. Be back by the third week. Make this trip relaxing, not strenuous. Too much sightseeing will wear you to the bone. Take it easy.
Publishing or broadcasting opportunities will pepper the month, giving you lots of opportunities to pick and choose among the best. Chose those that will allow you to use the full expression of your creativity and that have the biggest potential for the future.
At the new moon on August 25 you may be ready to make a commitment to your partner. You may be setting dates and calling the caterers. If you are already married, you can draw up new goals together. Not dating anyone important? You can to form an impressive business arrangement.
A shot of unexpected income may show up on or very near August 25 when Venus and Uranus will collaborate on your behalf. A new project or client may easily materialize.
On August 29, when the Sun and Neptune partner energies, your creativity on the job will be especially high.

The Year Ahead 2014 Astrological Calendar
By Susan Miller
My Year Ahead 2014 collectible calendar is now $9.99 (at a 45% discount, from original price $17.99) plus shipping, any applicable tax
Calendars are used to mark time, but have you ever had a calendar that helped you use your time productively? My new Year Ahead 2014 Calendar can do just that. I write every word myself in this stunning calendar with original fine art by socialite, author, and fine artist Gloria Vanderbilt, mother of newsman Anderson Cooper, and great grandchild of railroad entrepreneur Cornelius Vanderbilt. (Grand Central Station was originally her great grandfather's business headquarters.)
Gloria Vanderbilt, now almost 90 years young, licensed the reproduction rights to her critically acclaimed artwork to Susan Miller who self-published her calendar. The inks are rich, the paper heavy, glossy, and snow white, allowing Gloria's paintings to jump off the page. Each month, from January 2014 through the extra bonus month, January 2015, is found an inspirational quote from Gloria, centering on her philosophy of living life fully and creatively. With fourteen of Gloria's paintings, this calendar will soon become a collector's edition and will not be reprinted when stocks are gone.
Aside from having happy, vibrant art to look at all year, The Year Ahead 2014 calendar has many other uses, unlike any you have had in a calendar before. On every important day of each month I list the aspect and what it means, in easy to understand laymen's language. This means the next time you are about to make an important appointment, and the VIP asks you, "Do you want to come in Monday or Thursday?" you can say you will consult your calendar and know immediately the day to choose.
In a year like 2014, where sparkling aspects will stand side by side difficult ones, this calendar will not be a luxury but a necessity.
Also included in the calendar are:
- All the start and end dates of the retrograde planets in 2014,
- Detailed discussion of the new and full moons (new!)
- The date when planets move into new signs (and how long they will be in that sign), all listed on the same day entry
- The planetary aspects of the four eclipses due in 2014, and explanation of what each eclipse will bring.
No more surprises! Be in the know about upcoming events, so that you can plan your biggest initiations. This calendar is a "must" to keep with you all year, and is available here, from Susan's publisher, but not in bookstores or other retailers. Get it now, while you can: $9.99 plus tax and shipping. We ship to all nations of the world: http://bit.ly/186zM0i

A New Service: WiFive.us
Don't we all love a bargain?
We all want to know about the deals being offered nearby in our neighborhoods to save money. I found a way when a brilliant entrepreneur, Luis Sanchez, came to see me to show me he had developed a way of seeing all the various deal-of the-day websites that are featuring discounts on food, entertainment, boutiques, and other establishments, all in one click. Traveling? All you need to do is enter the zip code of your new neighborhood as you travel each day and you can see the deals that may be just across the street from your hotel.
The company is called Wifive.us and is ready to use today. It is a New York-based startup with a location-based search engine that gives you access to thousands of local online deals in a single site.
For now, Wifive.us is only available in the United States. It covers most of the deals and services you would see from various sources (Groupon, Amazon, Google deals, and so forth) all at once, so you don't have to go from site to site to find a deal that appeals to you, as Luis would humorously say, "until your head hurts." There is no registration necessary, and no useless emails to stuff your inbox each day.
Just type your address or ZIP code and get the deals you want when you want them. You pull in your information, which is far better than having many emails pushed to you. Try it and like the service on Facebook!
A word about the web address of WiFive.us
You may be wondering, what exactly is .US?
You might have thought the domain ending .us would only be only for government agencies and schools, but since 2002, individuals, businesses, churches, and non-profits have adopted .US web addresses to make their mark on the Internet. The .US is a new domain ending.
Just remember the name of the new service that no doubt you will be using quite a bit: pronounced as "wi-five-dot-us" otherwise seen as: http://www.wifive.us
Live Overseas? Or, don't have an iPhone, Android, or Samsung Galaxy?
