Your August Horoscope for Aquarius
If you need products or supplies to do your job, get those items in August, or if they are not available, get in line by putting your name on the list. Your best time for love and romance with Mars in Gemini will be early in October 2022 (first two weeks), and then from January 21 to March 25, 2023.
Astrologically, it’s also not great to date new people when Mars is out of phase, for Mars rules sex and affection. If you have an exciting start with someone with good chemistry on a first or second date, go slowly into the relationship. When Mars goes retrograde, your new relationship may become dull, completely missing the spark the relationship needs to keep it going.
Mars is also very connected to business, so when Mars retrogrades, everything seems harder than usual to accomplish. Mars is a high-octane planet, one that lends you great confidence, energy, and drive, but when he takes time out to sleep in retrograde, we all miss his energetic help to move ventures forward.
If you can launch a new product or service in August, do it—that would represent ideal timing. The additional problem will be that Mars’ little brother Mercury will also go retrograde from September 9 to October 2 in Libra. That’s why I am asking you to be super productive in August.
