Your August Horoscope for Libra
If you need a product or service to reach its full potential, you need to launch in August or the first 12 days of October, omitting the first three days. Start your advertising, publicity, or social media campaign now, immediately, or early in October (October 4-12).
If you hope to meet someone new romantically, do not try to have a first date during the Mars retrograde (October 30, 2022, to January 12, 2023).
If you’re looking over the dates that Mars will be in Gemini and the dates it will go retrograde, you may wonder why I didn’t say you could launch in September. I was hoping you wouldn’t notice that. Okay, I have to drop the other shoe.
The fact is, Mars’ little brother Mercury, the clown of the planetary family, is a copycat. Seeing that his brother, powerful Mars, is going off to sleep in retrograde, Mercury wants to do the same thing.
Little Mercury will go retrograde from September 9 to October 2, though you will feel Mercury’s slowdown earlier than September 9. As you see, we are going into a very slow period. August will be your last strong, productive period, with early October the runner-up, after Mercury goes direct on October 2, and you should always leave a small space after Mercury goes direct to initiate anything (which is why I chose October 4 as the start of your next strong period).
