Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
If you are self-employed and have a publicist, advertising agency, graphic designer, social media manager, or another expert, you will soon see you have hired a gem—someone energetic and effective in elevating you to the professional level you need to be. If you are the agent or publicist, for example, the talent that you represent will be solid gold for you.
Travel may also play a part in August, especially during the first half of the month, and it will be quite memorable and fun. This will be especially apparent in days that circle August 11, the date Jupiter goes direct after having been retrograde since April 10.
Uranus will be in hard angle to the Sun and new moon, creating sudden changes and occasional delays in travel plans and bigger problems with a contract. The nature of Uranus is to be unpredictable, so you can’t quite sidestep all his antics. You will need to be especially diligent about double-checking all details. If you do travel, check accommodations and appointments ahead of time, making sure you’ve packed all you will need and clearly marking all packages and luggage. Regarding your writing, speaking, or producing projects, again, you will need to make sure all the elements are buttoned up. If reporting on facts, have another person fact-check for accuracy.
The very start of August when Mercury goes direct would not be a favorable time to sign papers, for Mercury (agreements) will be at odds with Uranus, producing a jarring outcome. Much better days for signing will be August 5, August 6, August 21, August 28, or August 29.
Despite Uranus’ tendency to upset best-laid plans, Neptune shining in your tenth house of fame will ensure your reputation remains sterling, and with signals from Saturn and Pluto, that your income also stays strong.
