Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
August will be a month divided in two. The first part will be devoted to work projects, and although many go on holiday in August, you’ll be at your most productive this time of the year. Pisces likes to go against the grain anyway—to work while others play and vice versa—so this might partly explain why you will accomplish so much in August. There is another reason—the new moon that will appear just hours before the start to August on July 31 will open stunning opportunities for exciting new assignments, the kind that will help you make a bigger name for yourself in your industry than you have so far.
Days that you will want to circle on your calendar include August 5, 6, and 7, when the Sun speaks with Jupiter on your behalf, and also August 8, when Venus and Jupiter will be in lovely harmony. These are ideal days to give a presentation or schedule an interview, for it will be a day to impress VIPs and be offered good money as well.
You have been making gains all year, but if you are aching for a bigger career victory than you’ve seen so far, watch the days that surround the date Jupiter turns direct—August 11—having been retrograde since April 10. The three days that circle August 11 will be potent, and you will then get a sign that all the hard work you have done will start to pay off in a big way. Watch, and you will see.
That new moon in the first half of the month will bring dazzlingly helpful rays from Jupiter, the Great Benefic, currently in your tenth house of honors, awards, and achievements, making you the sign most likely to see your name in lights. This month you will see proof of how well you are doing, for clearly you will be making impressive gains.
Uranus, in your travel and communication sector, will be acting up, so it would be wise to watch the accuracy of the words you employ in writing or speaking. If you travel, double-check addresses, your accommodations, and times of appointments. If driving, bring your car in for a tune-up. If you don’t have to travel mid-month, put off your trip until a week later.
