Mars is traveling through Aries this month, and will go retrograde next month. This will make us want to push everything along faster, but when Mars goes retrograde there will be a tremendous build-up of frustration. People who are ordinarily impulsive will become downright explosive. Fortunately, Venus (relationships) and Mercury (communication) are direct and fast, so at least some things can proceed swimmingly. Find out how these things, plus August’s Full and New Moons, affect your sign.

You can find out how these things land for you in your August horoscope. Remember to check your Rising sign’s horoscope first, if you know it (because that will always work better) and THEN check your Sun sign.
