Aug 1 Mercury square Sun
There is much activity; you move rapidly from one thing to another and a hectic, somewhat stressful pace is likely. Many errands, phone calls, letters which require a response, and other “busywork” is on the agenda. A minor but rather tense confrontation is likely.
Aug 1 Mercury trine Venus
You are very congenial and cooperative now and more interested in the similarities than in the differences between yourself and others. This is a very good time to let people know you care about them: send a card, write a note of appreciation or even a love letter! You may also want to buy something beautiful, pleasing, and frivolous which simply makes you feel good.
Aug 1 Mars opposite Neptune
At this time your interactions with others and with the outside world in general can be confusing, devitalizing, and discouraging. It seems that whatever you try to do goes nowhere, or gets lost in a haze of misunderstanding. This is not a good time to try to toot your own horn or attempt to get personal recognition for your efforts. Taking time off, working quietly, or doing something primarily for the benefit of others without concern for personal gain, is favored at this time.
Aug 1 Venus square Pluto
Hidden passions, fears, jealousies, longings, desires, or needs surface in you now and can stir up trouble in your closest relationships. You are prone to be compulsive or demanding in a close relationship, to be emotionally driven and to force things to a head in some emotionally-laden situation. Positively, a relationship can be deepened and reborn now, given new life by your willingness to reveal yourself completely to your loved one.
Aug 3 Mercury Conjunct Mars
You are likely to come to a very clear, definite decision at this time, and to let others know exactly what you want. You are not in a very conciliatory mood and are not averse to stirring up unpleasant controversy in defense of your plan, idea, or desire. You may speak or act in haste now which can be a cause of regret later on.
Aug 5 Sun trine Jupiter
This is a good time for relaxing recreation, a time to refresh and rejuvenate yourself and do the things you most enjoy doing. Good humor and optimism prevail now, and you are able to get a larger perspective on your life. This is also a good time to approach someone who is in a position to benefit you spiritually, intellectually, or materially.
Aug 6 Sun conjunct Ascendant
This is a time for you to shine! You have an extra measure of energy and confidence now and will make a strong impression on those in your environment. This is a very good time to go for a job interview, meet the public, or simply go out and be seen. You will be noticed more than usual.
This is also a good time to begin something new, to initiate a relationship or project you may have been considering.
Aug 6 Sun conjunct Moon
Key issues now are your home, personal life, and closest emotional relationships. You feel more quiet and reflective, and you feel a need to be closer to home and to loved ones. You can draw a lot of strength and satisfaction from your family and roots now, but if all is not well in this area, you will clearly see any difficulties or inadequacies at this time. You are more emotional and subjective than usual.
Aug 7 Mercury square Pluto
It is impossible for you to be content with superficial answers now, and you are impatient with people who avoid looking candidly and honestly at root causes and hidden reasons for any problem or situation. You tend to force your views on other people now. Also, you can become obsessed with an idea or problem until you have figured it out.
Aug 8 Mars trine Pluto
Getting what you really want and moving toward achieving the things which are important to you may involve surrendering something or eliminating something from your life at this time: perhaps an attitude, a situation, or an attachment that has been impeding you is now released. You feel free to concentrate on the things that are most important to you now. Major, long-term changes can be successfully begun now – a lifestyle change or a regimen of self-improvement, for instance.
Aug 9 Jupiter Square Pluto
Social influence, power, and prestige are critical issues at this time. You try to expand your business pursuits, gain greater recognition and influence at work, and make significant advancement towards your career goals.
Aug 9 Sun square Sun
You feel temporarily blocked now. Resistance and challenges from others or from outside situations suggest this is not a good time to try to force your will and desires onto the world, as friction is the only likely result. Relations with men can be especially tense.
Aug 9 Mercury trine Midheaven
At this time you put extra energy into thinking about and organizing your work and professional life. Decisions you make at this time are likely to work out well, as you are clear and objective. Gathering information regarding your career or long-range goals is also favored.
Aug 9 Mars opposite Uranus
You are very bold and adventurous right now and you cannot tolerate delays, restrictions, or any form of authority that prevents you from behaving exactly as you please. Your drive for personal freedom and insistence on your rights is pressing, and a confrontation in which you have to stand up for yourself is likely. Rashness, sudden acts of anger or violence, and a tendency to try to do too much too fast are tendencies you need to carefully monitor at this time.
Aug 11 Sun trine Venus
Giving and receiving appreciation, love, and happiness come into your life now. You are moved to express your affections more openly than usual. You also want to be surrounded with beauty and harmonious people, and your artistic efforts flourish.
Aug 11 Mercury square Mercury
Intellectual disagreements or differences of opinion and viewpoints arise now. You may have to speak your mind in a way that challenges or unnerves someone else. However, your mind is very active and sharp, and your reasoning power is good, so this is a good time to do mental work.
Aug 12 Mars square MidHeaven
At this time your efforts to get ahead and advance your own interests are likely to be met with resistance or animosity. You seem over-eager, pushy, inconsiderate, or too narrowly focused on your own objectives, so that you alienate the people who could help you. Try to do as much as you can on your own, without trying to force others to agree with you or join you.
Aug 15 Sun conjunct Mars
You feel energetic, confident, and assertive now, and are less inclined to be patient with others’ needs and demands. You may become angry if your will is blocked or if you have to adjust your vigorous pace to others’ slower tempo.
This is an excellent time to take the initiative or to begin a project that you have been considering. ACTION is the theme for today. If you tend to be hot-tempered, this is aggravated now, and you can be quite pugnacious. If you are a more relaxed, easy-going person, you will simply feel more energy and drive than usual.
Aug 15 Mercury square Jupiter
Your mind is on bigger issues and long-range plans. You are optimistic and enthusiastic about your ideas, but disinclined to read the fine print or study all the facts, which can result in an error in judgement. Try not to be lax about important details.
Aug 15 Venus conjunct Mars
Your amorous desires and romantic urges are very strong now. In all of your relationships, whether romantic or not, you feel quite warm and affectionate. You are less competitive, more interested in pleasing others, and creating harmony. You may also feel compelled to do something creative or artistic, something to express your craving for beauty.
