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
You have been keeping your eye on your career, and in August, you may now get a big breakthrough and be able to get the kind of assignments you only used to dream about. This wonderful development comes thanks to the new moon of July 31 or August 1 (depending on your time zone) in Leo at nine degrees that will bring opportunities to your sixth house of workaday projects. All new moons are influential in the 10 to 13 days that follow it. You will be very busy.
As calls come in, note the nature of the meetings and projects you take on in the first half of August, for those will have the power to elevate your professional standing in your industry or the world by year’s end. If you work for others, you will get all the enviable assignments, for apparently, you’ve proven you can complete them better than anyone else. Many Pisces prefer to be self-employed, and if that describes you, you will find that all the most prestigious companies and clients will come knocking, for they will want you in their corner.
Last month you didn’t dare sign a contract or seal any opportunity in stone, but now that Mercury has gone direct, you will feel the blast of energy around you and the pace will pick up quickly—the amount of work you might have to do or oversee this month may be overwhelming. It’s feast or famine, and that is the way the world works. Happily, you now will find yourself in a time of abundant feasts.
You will need to watch the details, for Uranus in Taurus will be at odds with the new moon of July 31/August 1. Uranus will also taunt all the planets in Leo, your sixth house of work projects, so the wheels may come off the bus on one of the assignments if you turn away for even a minute. If you are a manager and have teams working on the jobs, you will have to be extra vigilant to be sure no one who reports to you is slacking off and missing critical elements.
With four planets in the royal Leo, it appears that the luxury market will be important for you this month. Markets that cater to children will also be special sources of gain. By that I mean children’s books, toys, clothes and shoes, games, lunch boxes, and more will all be lucrative areas for you.
