A Note from Susan Miller
I am so happy to send you the August forecast, for it brims with happy surprises. July was an intense month for many readers, for we all were subject to two eclipses and Mercury retrograde. In comparison, August will be a breath of fresh air. Mercury is now direct, and we have one of the most beautiful new moons of 2019 on August 30 in Virgo. It will offer you an array of opportunities and many happy surprises in the last week.
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
This is a month just made for you, and it’s cut in two. The first part is likely to be your favorite. Friends will seek you out and want to be with you, and the ideas they will bring of things to do will thrill you. Life can’t just be about work and keeping up with a steady stream of tasks, a thought that has recently crossed your mind. August will break that chain and give you an enchanting time to have fun.
If you want to travel, you will be able to thanks to golden beams being sent to you from Jupiter, the good fortune planet. Friends will be begging you to come along with them—they say you make everything better and it’s true, you do. You will have plenty of time to have lunches and dinners with friends, visit art museums, shop for new clothes for the next season, and buy tickets to concerts, the ballet, or a Broadway show. Life has not been this carefree for you in a long time, and now that it is, drink it in.
You are lucky to have Mars in your friendship house—the eleventh house—for you will be energetic, optimistic, and somewhat unencumbered by the usual demands of life, and you’ll be ready to kick back and connect. Venus is in the same house, so the activities you will be invited to, or that you suggest to others, will have a touch of luxury and beauty. Your ruler is Venus, and with Venus being part of the little joyous crowd of planets in your eleventh house shows me how much you will enjoy this trend and benefit from it. Your friends will be so good for you now that one might even bring you a career tip that you can act on immediately. All these planets will be in fire-sign Leo, which blends so well with your air sign element.
I am enthusiastic about the new moon that will set your social life in motion on July 31 or August 1 (depending on your time zone). Jupiter will be beautifully oriented toward the partying planets in Leo, suggesting you may be invited to friends’ houses to visit and to stay a few days. This would be a superb month to take a quick trip to a sunny place within a day’s drive from your home base. Your third house is lit up, and that rules your siblings, so your sister or brother may also be a big bright spot of the month with news you can celebrate.
