HOROSCOPES – Georgia Nichols

Your stars for August 2015

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Expect a fantastic month ahead, because the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter are all helping your life be pleasant and easy-going. You might want to relax and do nothing. However, why miss this creative potential, which is enormous for you? Your self-confidence is strong! Explore the arts, sports, playful times with children, the theatre plus parties and social entertainment.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You’ve been aware that this is a fabulous year for real-estate opportunities; and a chance to improve your home and family scene. Well, this month intensifies this already existing, favourable influence. Now your focus will strongly switch to home, family, your private life, and perhaps, a stronger interaction with a parent. Enjoy redecorating and refurbishing your home. Caution about coming on too strong with others. Lighten up and enjoy your surroundings.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You’ve been busy with social interactions. Many of you are reading and writing more than usual, as well. Nevertheless, as impossible as this sounds; this month, your life will get even busier and more fast-paced! (Gasp.) This is because you have something you want to say to others. Basically, you want to enlighten someone. This means you will be more aggressive about socializing with people because you want to reach out to them. Motivation makes a difference.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your focus on money, cash flow, possessions and assets is strong and getting stronger this month! You want to boost your earnings or get a better job. You might also want to spend big. You need enough money for shelter, food and your exorbitant cell phone bill; but wise teachers have said that the more money and power you have – the more problems you have. Somewhere in the middle is the perfect balance. What makes you happy?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This month the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter are all in Leo. This means pleasure, parties, sports and playful times with children for the rest of the summer. Naturally, this makes you more sociable, friendly and romantic. This is also the last run of Jupiter in Leo until 2026, so enjoy it. This is rare to have such a celestial focus on your sign. Make the most of it. Go after what you want with firm intention and positive expectations. If not now, then when?  When you’ve got it, baby, flaunt it!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You want to cocoon. Actually this is a good thing because this is the perfect month to think about what you want your new ‘personal’ year to be all about. How do you want your new year to be different? Despite your impulse to be low-key, fiery Mars is stirring up energy with friends and groups. Mars will help you to excel in competitive, physical sports, as well as come out on top in group negotiations. Virgo rules!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your popularity is strong and getting stronger. August is the perfect time for interaction with others, especially with friends and groups. Younger people, artistic people, and people in authority all want to talk to you. Meanwhile, this is a good time to actively pursue your goals, assuming you have defined them. If not, what are your goals? Use this month to share your hopes and dreams for the future with others to get their feedback.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This month the Sun is at the top of your chart, which is the only time all year this happens. When it occurs, people not only notice you more, they admire you. Use this to your advantage! Make your pitch to your boss or ask for permission for something. Some of you will begin a romance with your boss or an authority figure. Continue to pursue avenues in travel, publishing, the media, medicine and the law. Lookin’ good!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This month, opportunities to travel and explore new avenues in publishing, the media, medicine and the law exist in abundance. Get outta town if you can. In addition, your gonads are in overdrive, and you’re pumped with sexual energy, as well as competitive energy about shared property, inheritances and insurance issues. Look for opportunities to travel for pleasure. This month is also an excellent time to study, if study is important in your life. (Can you spell onomatopoeia?)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Mars has been opposite your sign since June 25, creating problems with friends and partners. (Lord knows you’ve tried but what can you do when others are impossible?) Fortunately, the universe is generous to you now and will continue being generous in the next four weeks. This is why gifts, goodies and favours from others are flowing your way! This is the perfect time to ask for a loan or get a mortgage. Make the most of this good luck. Ka-ching!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This month the Sun is 180∞ opposite your sign, intensifying your focus on friends and partners. However, since the Sun is your source of energy, and it is now as far away from you as it gets all year, you will need more sleep. Seriously, recognize your need for power naps and such to get through this month because you are pumped to work hard now. This month also offers you a rare chance to observe your style of relating to others.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This month you have a strong focus on your health and work. You want to make your work surroundings more attractive; and many of you will continue to boost your earnings. You will be more hands-on in your job and full of clever ideas. It’s important to line your ducks up in a row because an important career peak is just months away. But life is not all work and no play. Fiery Mars starts this month with sports and love affairs! Party on.
