Your August 2022 Horoscope and Zodiac Predictions

Get ready for a retrograde and dark new moon.

August is unofficially known as the Sunday of summer, bringing the dog days of our favorite season to a dusky close. While we’re busy soaking up the last days of warm weather and day drinking, the cosmos are aligning for a busy and intense month.

The month kicks off with the fiery planet Mars meets up with Uranus in Taurus, resulting in a bit of frantic energy, but never fear as Mercury enters Virgo on August 3. As the planet of communication resides in the practical Earth sign, conversations and business deals will go on with ease as this cosmic collision has almost the opposite effect of a Mercury retrograde.

On August 11, a full moon in Aquarius will illuminate the night sky just as the ever-romantic Venus enters Leo. The culmination of a full moon on the same night as Venus makes its way to Leo will have feelings running high. While you may be tempted to rekindle things with your ex, take heed as this will be a moment of intensity. If the moon’s cycle has your emotions going haywire, it’s okay to take a breather. That being said, the power of sex magic is not to be underestimated, especially during a full moon. If Venus in Leo has you feeling confident in the bedroom, engage in empowering solo play or an affirming session with a trusted partner.

Mars enters Gemini on August 20, putting an extra pep in your step. As the twins of the zodiac are known for their gift of gab, use your skills of persuasion to advocate for yourself or ask for that promotion you know you deserve. August 22 marks the beginning of Virgo season so use the pragmatic sign’s nature as inspiration to not only set goals for the fall, but rest and recharge before a busy season. Uranus goes into retrograde in Taurus on August 24 for the next five months, offering a period of reflection. As Uranus rules Aquarius, the community-minded idealist of the twelve signs, a reversal in the planet’s orbit calls attention to the areas in your life that may be lacking, whether it’s self-limiting beliefs or a toxic social circle. Mercury enters the social butterfly and mediator Libra on August 25 helping you get in touch with your innermost needs as scales often symbolize the sign, representing balance.

The month ends with a bang as a new moon enters Virgo, making way for a fresh, clean start. While the signs are known for their relentless perfectionism, the dark moon gives you the opportunity to embrace your imperfections and perceived flaws as they are in order to move forward with grace and compassion.
