Your August Horoscope for Leo
Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius (the sign of the full moon), will blast the Sun and emotional full moon in a square aspect to each, indicating that an unexpected challenge will surface. Uranus is the planet of all things unanticipated, so although you may want to react impulsively, you have to give this aspect room—think and reflect before you respond. You can always respond in a day or two, but if you say something out of anger or frustration, you won’t be able to take your words back. An argument could leave a scar on the relationship. As they say, once the toothpaste is out of the tube, you can’t get it back in.
It is not helping that Saturn will oppose the Sun and conjoin the full moon (to peak on August 14). This is a heavy aspect because Saturn’s influence is icy and the Sun is fiery, and a blend of fire and ice is incompatible. Saturn conjunct the moon can make you feel depleted or not talented enough (which is absurd, but you may feel that way for a day or two). If you are criticized, even a little, you may go to pieces. Don’t let anyone do that to you, dear Leo.
The moon, under siege here, may make you feel your home is too small, dark, or expensive and that you will never be able to leave. You will. Don’t assume—this is Saturn playing tricks. This is a transitory aspect, and you will feel better in two days or so.
This is a complicated full moon because there are some hard aspects, but there are good ones, too.
