Your August Horoscope for Leo
The changes you made for your career earlier this year may pay off by the August 27 new moon, which will appear in Virgo, your second house of earned income. You seem to have corrected something in your work life by now to make it more enjoyable, and because you’ve built your reputation for excellence, Mercury will work with other planets to reward you.
Mercury will contact Pluto in your house of work and see that you get an interesting assignment, which will arrive quite suddenly, in the weeks to come. Forming a grand trine (the most heavenly aspect possible), Mercury will work with Mars in Gemini, so you may find you will be writing or communicating with groups and communities much more in the months to come. Start advertising, promoting, and doing social media—anything to get the word out on what you or your company is involved in now. This is a positive new moon that will allow you to move toward a pinnacle in your career in 2023 to 2024.
“Astrology,” published by Taschen, is the title of a book that traces the vibrant visual history of astrology. Taschen is renowned for their rich offering of fine art books. This book has over 400 images depicting various astrological images, going back to the Egyptian temples and extending up to contemporary art. Remarkably, no one has ever published a visual history of how astrology has been depicted through the ages, and it is fascinating to see.
When the author, Andrea Richards, and the editor of this luxury book, Jessica Hundley, called to ask if I would write the foreword to the book, I was honored and humbled. They asked for two paragraphs, but I sent 1,800 words about my love of symbols in astrology. Jessica, the book’s editor, called to tell me she loved what I wrote and that she changing almost nothing.
