Your August Horoscope for Pisces
On August 20, action planet Mars will move into Gemini and begin a major new trend for you, one that will last through March 25, 2023. Mars typically stays six weeks in a sign, but this time Mars will remain in your fourth house of home and family for seven months. Either you, or a member of your family, will likely move or renovate. One way or another, it appears you will play an integral role in the process, for one family member or your home will be the center of your attention.
As the month starts to draw to a close, you may become interested in forming a serious partnership with a person you share a love or business relationship. If you are dating someone special who you are serious about, you may be ready to exchange rings and promises. If you are already wed, you may choose a fun goal—to save for an overseas trip, to buy a vacation country house, or to have your first baby. As you decide, try to nail down the approximate costs of your idea, for Neptune, your ruler, will oppose Mercury, so you may still be a little unsure or too fuzzy about the actual costs. Don’t let that stop your work toward the goal—the money appears when you make it a priority.
At this point, many of the extreme pressures you have felt lately will start to melt away, but you will still have a long to-do list, as shown by Saturn opposed to Venus—get the work done, and then you will be able to play. Mercury will lead the brigade at this new moon, and happily, Mercury will get support from Pluto (help from powerful friends) and from Mars (family adores you and will help you). Mercury is well-positioned to attract money too, so, all in all, you should be feeling optimistic about your future soon after this happy new moon of August 27 arrives.
