What energetic influence will the majority of human beings be facing in the month of August?
ANSWER: Three of Pentacles reversed
Constructive efforts take priority in August. However, Three of Pentacles promises putting the pieces together will be challenging.
The truth is, it’s a f**king mess out there following the detonative environment of July. Explosions leave shrapnel and extensive damage; this requires a significant amount of time and effort to clean up.
The main problem with Three of Pentacles reversed present as the overarching energy of this month is that the rebuilding process is thwarted by a frustrating lack of agreement. There is difficulty or a complete inability to settle on terms or plans of action with colleagues, co-workers or any other type of significant relationships. No one agrees on what the right thing is to do. Therefore the building climate is infused with a sense of helplessness. While some may be insistent on moving forward, others are expressing their feelings of futility by trying to maintain the status quo, disappearing into the background, or keeping busy with stupid, meritless work.
But this will not last forever, as Three of Pentacles reversed provides a clear timeline on when events turn promising, when things finally gel and come together.
Affairs will harmoniously click into place when planet Mars transits into Capricorn on September 27, 2016. Keep trying and do not give up. There is a rich new growth emerging next month and a great balance. Consider the current restructuring a valuable learning process until grounded consensus solidifies.

KEY AUGUST THEMES FOR EACH SUN / RISING / MOON SIGN:
Aries - The Hanged Man reversed: Ram, this month is replete with reality checks. There are way too many potentialities to be impulsive. Bad timing abounds, you’re ready, the other party is not, vice versa. Do not pursue any ungrounded ventures, at least throughout the weeks of August. But, we can dream. This is the most wonderful time period for planning and setting the stage. Temporarily, you are relieved of the onerous obligations connected to the necessity of living into your word, but not because you are not a person of integrity; you’re not making any hardcore commitments, just dreaming, thus, making no new promises, you do not have to take action. Remember, these are just ideas. Start blabbing about them on a major level and then you have a responsibility to honor your oath. Create on a smaller, more personal scale, then materialize by sharing these works with others at a later date, when the time is right. Count on these ideas to be thriving in a big way when Neptune turns direct November 19th.
Taurus - Two of Pentacles reversed: Bull, there may be a climate of drowning in details. There are so many things in flux it’s even more difficult to juggle than usual, primarily because it is hard to come up with an accurate prediction on where the ball will land. Taureans seem to appreciate control, but although sometimes characterized as domineering, this isn’t necessarily where the fondness for order stems from. Members of this star sign possess a natural balanced temperament; y’all understand the rhythm of natural unfolding, the timing behind the manifestation of a grand design. However, Two of Pentacles reversed suggests certain strategies, projects, or approaches simply do not offer clear or predictable outcomes. It’s OK to go back to the drawing board and start anew. Times are changing.
Gemini - Two of Swords: Twins have reached a decisive ‘pause’. This does not necessarily mean events in life are slowing down, or progress isn’t being had. This is different. Two of Swords indicates a slowing down is taking place to stimulate the energetic means necessary to continue tackling a life-altering decision made at a previous crossroads. The problem is, vulnerability is everywhere because walking this new path means there are no clear answers on exactly what will happen as a result of taking this course. In some ways, it can feel like a really dangerous daredevil act. But Two of Swords promises intuition will not steer you in the wrong direction. The figure in this tarot card has the blindfold on because she needs to sit still and listen to herself. Use all of your senses. You got this. Everything will work out divinely by the New Moon in Libra on October 1.
Cancer - Page of Swords: Crab, the new vocalized you has arrived. The Page of Swords is blunt; this person does not hold back on what needs to be said. In fact, REWRITE, a need isn’t required; the Page of Swords says what’s on the mind, 24/7, in your face, direct. There is no circling around the point; the main matter is continuously addressed. Page of Swords suggests truth, frankness, candor, all types of communicative honesty is your motto for the month. This theme applies to others and Self. Page of Swords also often signifies paperwork, a contract, a book, a magazine, etc. So there may be added dimensions of writing, communicating, organizing files or sealing deals related to the Page of Swords. Stay sharp.
Leo - Queen of Pentacles: Lion, this month, your birthday season, is the perfect time to luxuriate in raw beauty. It is hard to describe the power the Queen of Pentacles possesses. This Queen is a force of nature who has the ability to connect with earth so deeply, she fuses with environments, becoming the rocks, the soil, the flowers, the air. Her relationship to the elements is so profound there is a deep knowledge immediately present when turning up to the scene. Verbal communication is inferior to the inherent understanding the Queen of Pentacles has with each and every component in her surroundings. But this magic isn’t extravagant, it is simple, pure and pragmatic. The ‘Knowing’ is dynamic this month and you are the graceful ruler of your habitat.
Virgo - Lovers: Virgin, Lovers card hearkens to your sister sign Gemini, who you share ruling planet Mercury with. Please read Gemini’s horoscope for more insight into what’s going on for you in August, it’s relevant. But the difference between Twins and Virgins this month is, Geminis have already made a life-altering crossroads decision and the Virgos are faced with this new challenge in August. Lovers card is all about choice and integration; a choice is made and then multiple elements are integrated. Lovers card can also allude to the obvious: a significant relationship. Virgins, be on guard in upcoming weeks when it comes to merging, there may be inferior elements coming into play when deciding what connections to form with others. Inferior can play out in many ways, such as, you think the dude’s a loser so pass on moving forward with him, but he’s actually remarkable, OR, person/idea looks phenomenal, a once-in-a-lifetime radness, but actually has no substance and is weak. There is a wolf in sheep’s clothing theme present, figure out who is who and what is what before making a firm and committed conclusion.
Libra - Five of Pentacles: Balanced Scales of Justice, what is lacking? Five of Pentacles is normally associated with poverty, scarcity-consciousness and a dearth of resources. There is a challenge with this card and the state of difficulty often requires charity, asking for help. Libra, either you’re the one in need of assistance or you can provide it. Speak up and either receive or provide service.
Scorpio - Five of Rods reversed: Scorpion, you are reaching the end of a conflicting era. There are still components that require attention before it’s fully over though. Five of Rods reversed suggests a climate where warring elements have calmed down, but no one’s out of the woods yet. There is a sensation of traveling connected to your experience of August, where there is cheerful delight about venturing into new realms, but also a distinct awareness the place you’re visiting isn’t a permanent stop. This vibe is complex because although pleasant, this isn’t recognizable, it’s not home, there are different customs, formalities, a whole alien culture to acknowledge. Observe and participate with glee, but don’t count on settling just yet.
Sagittarius - Seven of Pentacles: Centaur, pragmatism and strategic restriction aid you this month. Take stock. It’s really important to get beyond clear on what is in the repository before moving forward. Seven of Pentacles relates to mundane affairs, such as a savings accounts, storehouses, any place or thing where supplies are stored up over time, to be put to use later. August has more of an investment strategy vibe, so analyze and allocate resources wisely.
Capricorn - Nine of Rods: Goat, you’ve been working your ass off, and you are definitely on target. Nine of Rods is often depicted as a weary soldier who is seasoned in conflict and has survived several battles. Some of his comrades died along the way, but his killer instinct has kept him alive. The downside of Nine of Rods is, he can keep fighting hard when there is actually no reason to. Nine of Rods suggests in the month of August, there may still be conflict to attend to, but it may not be as raging or intense as previous struggles. Don’t expend too much energy, you’ve already won, do not stress. The proper steps have been taken and accord is around the corner.
Aquarius - Nine of Cups reversed: Water Bearer, sycophants are parasites no matter how flattering their compliments are. Nine of Cups reversed calls attention to delusion. This card is a party card, the dude in Nine of Cups is eating fine food, drinking fine wine, and having a friggin’ damned good time. When reversed, he’s veiled from seeing the true nature of the associates dining with him around the table. Some of them may be straight up monsters, but, since they’re ingratiating him with praise, he considers them friends. Aquarian, it’s time for association quality control. Assess, then determine, who is the true comrade. Consider, you could also be the monster in this situation, do not turn a blind eye to anyone.
Pisces - Six of Swords: Fish, move on. It’s time to go. There is a profound journey going on, it’s game-changing. Enjoy the exodus. You are really getting somewhere; allow the tides to usher your vessel into new worlds.
TIPS, SUGGESTIONS & NOTES FOR THE MONTH:
- Don’t quit. Stay at it! It’s tough, but there is hope, despite a prevalent air of disagreement.
- Accept vicissitudes. There is a life plan residing in the mind, and then, there is life: where sh*t never seems to go to plan but works out anyway. Acknowledge there is rarely, maybe never, a linear route to manifestation; creation requires the unexpected.
- Be real. Argue if you must, don’t try to play nice. Also, allow other people to vent. It’s OK to be frustrated; the struggle is legit and will ultimately benefit, despite the acrimony of now.
- Associations will fluctuate. New and old relationships are undergoing tremendous change; expect partnerships to transform. There’s nothing wrong with finding the perfect people to work with, through clean breaks, angry bust-ups, or delighted surprise connections, whatever the case, it’s all good.
