The Cards and the Stars: Monthly Horoscope for August 2017

August general tarot reading for all signs

Four of Pentacles reversed, King of Wands, The Sun.

General Overview: Three-card Tarot Reading for All Signs

You may find that you are holding on to things, people, money, or situations far more than you should for your own well-being and piece of mind. It's time to relax and to remember that you cannot control what others choose to do. We all have free will. Focus on your own choices.

The King of Wands reminds you to lead your life with intent, vision and a long-term view. Know that even though you are experiencing challenges this month, this is just a part of your journey to something more positive. Eventually you will see August as just a little blip on the radar and it will have simply served to make you stronger. Stay focused on your long-term goals.

You may soon find that an opportunity is presenting itself to you, and you now have the power to accept the opportunity and take on the challenge. You are the determining factor in this situation, and circumstances will navigate in the direction you steer them. Indecision or doubt will not be appropriate responses when clarity and confidence are required.

The negative aspect of the King of Wands is that he can be arrogant and even aggressive in his pursuit of his goals. He may be conscious or unconscious of this. For example, most of the time he does not show enough restraint to know when assistance is not needed or wanted, and he can sometimes make things worse by doing what he thinks is the right thing. Furthermore, once successful, he may become easily carried away with his newfound status and grandeur. He shows determination and vision to accomplish his goals at any cost, and while he is often a respected leader, there can be instances where he is prepared to go above the heads of others in order to fulfill his own dreams and agendas, potentially putting others off-side. This King can also become easily distracted by bigger and better things and he can become so accustomed to attention that he can take other people for granted.

As an inherently good influence, finding the Sun is a positive development. It is suggestive of personal gain, and that personal goals and joy are within reach this month, if you are willing to invest the effort to actualize them. If you find yourself approaching a moment that has the potential to change your life, remember to take full advantage of this time and you will achieve a future of endless possibility.

Monthly Horoscope by Astrological Sign

Leo (July 23 – August 22): Love comes quickly this month, whatever you do. Tell people what you really think. Otherwise, nothing will change. You'll find that August is a month when your many hidden talents will become obvious to those around you. It will also be a month when it's up to you to create the peacefulness you long for. Still, enjoy the good luck a companion brings you. Tarot card: The Wheel of Fortune. Spirit Animal: Mongoose. Aura: Light Cyan. Lucky Numbers: 4, 23, 24, 38, 40, 54.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Beginning this month and until September 6th, you're in the position to catch your breath and learn more about your deeper feelings. All that you've swept under the rug in recent months related to your affections can now be recognized and processed. You've been getting the brunt of the last few retrogrades, and now you have a bit more to go before you feel your head's truly back in the game, but you're making progress!

Tarot card of the month: Ace of Pentacles. Spirit Animal: Heron. Aura: Cyan. Lucky Numbers: 4, 5, 24, 39, 41, 55.

Libra (September 23 – October 22): August will find you feeling increasingly readier to express your feelings and follow your desires in direct, straightforward, and positive ways. This can be a time of a great love of the outdoors, travel, and learning, as well as a time for finding love and pleasure in unusual and possibly even exotic places. Breaking out of your usual routine can open up pleasant possibilities, even if it's only happening on a mental level. You're not in any mood to do ordinary things, and with this mindset, you might completely gloss over relevant facts, so watch for this. Tarot card of the month: Nine of Swords. Spirit Animal: Chipmunk. Aura: Champagne Gold. Lucky Numbers: 7, 13, 17, 56, 57, 65.

Your August days are backed by lady luck in all your endeavors. You'll know that success is achieved after you've worked hard. In your case, that minuscule luck was missing and with both your hands in fortune, this month you can achieve anything with your dedication. Tarot card: Strength. Spirit Animal: Hedgehog. Aura: Sienna. Lucky Numbers: 8, 15, 29, 34, 37, 64.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Lately, you may have done some nursing of your feelings and this has been a useful process as it motivates you to push forward lighter and freer. Now, you're feeling new and refreshed — not quite back up to speed but getting there! People appreciate the qualities that come most naturally to you, and this should continue all the way until August 6th.

Your discoveries can be super, so take notes, but consider working with them patiently for awhile longer. Tarot card of the month: Ten of Swords. Spirit Animal: Komodo Dragon. Aura: Fuchsia. Lucky Numbers: 2, 11, 19, 20, 31, 42.

Be true to who and what you are this month and strive to make each and every day a masterpiece of simplicity and splendor.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): It's definitely your turn now for good things to happen but you'll absolutely need some time alone now. Of course, you may have to fight for it.

So you can schedule all your difficult activities in August and you will find success in them coming quickly and without hassle. Tarot card: Seven of Pentacles. Spirit Animal: Mongoose. Aura: Aquamarine. Lucky Numbers: 9, 10, 13, 36, 48, 58.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Talking will get you anything you want this month. Your way with words is especially captivating right now and you will have the perfect terms right on the tip of your tongue. Verbal communication has long been one of your strengths, and now, even more so. This is a wonderful time to meet new people, especially people you want to impress. Job interviews, first dates, or any other type of potentially monumental appointments are going to go well. Tarot card of the month: The Hermit, reversed. Spirit Animal: Oryx. Aura: Aubergine. Lucky Numbers: 4, 13, 20, 31, 42, 50.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): It's time to give that horse one last lash and let it rest in peace.

In fact, if you're really still interested in keeping things together between you and the person you've been feuding with, why not lay all your cards out on the table, be totally honest and get the problem solved once and for all?

An important financial arrangement is on its way which may prove a windfall gain for you. Tarot card: Knight of Cups. Spirit Animal: Marten. Aura: Cerulean Blue. Lucky Numbers: 25, 28, 31, 61, 66, 69.
