Your August Horoscope for Cancer
On August 27, a new moon in Virgo will appear and coax you to travel and leave your cares behind. Your trip is likely to be a short-distance one, but even so, it will pull you out of your routine and give you a chance to review next month. Exploring a mountainous region may entice you.
On this new moon, Mercury, a happy little Chatty Cathy, will be in the lead, conversing with Mars in Gemini and Pluto (in an out-of-sign trine)—these three planets will form an aspect of divine harmony. Home-related matters will come up, and you will have help from a spouse, partner, or expert you hire. If you have a family member feeling out of sorts, you will also have additional assistance from personnel from the medical community.
