August 2016 Horoscopes: Scorpio
OCTOBER 23 — NOVEMBER 21
As a Scorpio, you’re ruled by Mars. He’s the planet of vitality, motivation, and desire, and he’s been in your sign since January, teaching you about competition and power. Now, it’s time to put what you’ve learned to good use. Mars enters Sagittarius, your money and value sector, on August 2, inspiring you to turn those lessons into cash. Is it time to diversify your income? Stay alert for new job opportunities, as well as side hustle or investment ideas. You’ll see the dollars start to materialize when Mars aligns with practical Saturn from August 23 to 24.
On the same day, the Leo New Moon illuminates your career house, bringing you an opportunity that thrusts you into the spotlight. It’s supported by business planet Saturn in your second house, so whatever you start now could be a seriously lucrative venture. Be aware that Lady Luna is on the receiving end of shade from Lilith in your sign—she’s a point modern astrologers fondly refer to as the “bitch goddess”. You may have to stand up to people who are jealous of your success, but let them dim your shine. Let the haters hate.
This month’s full moon on August 18 is extra special: it’s a lunar eclipse. Eclipses are superpowered celestial events, the effects of which will ripple out for weeks, and even months to come. This one is in Aquarius, the sign of friends, groups, and visionaries. Aquarius is your astrological “personal space”, and it’s getting good vibes from Uranus in your health and habits zone.
This moon could bring important news about your living situation, someone in your family, or a very close female friend. Whatever happens, your daily grind will benefit in surprising ways. Who knows, maybe moving closer to your work could allow you to walk, giving you both health benefits and time to listen to your favorite podcasts. It’s a win-win!
