Make a Fresh Start
The month begins with the remnants of a new moon in Leo (August 1), making the very beginning of August a good time to begin new ventures or to plant seeds for a fresh start. It’s good to acknowledge that things don’t have to continue as they are, and this new moon affords us the chance to change things.
There is much dynamic energy in Leo, which is very favorable for those born under the sign of the Lion as well as the fellow fire signs: Aries and Sagittarius. The air signs will also benefit, so the Gemini, Aquarius, and Libra folks should find early August rather uplifting. In fact, Libra people look set to further benefit, as Venus moves into a lovely alignment with helpful Jupiter, making the second week of August particularly favorable. Things should flow harmoniously, especially wherever an opportunity or stroke of good fortune manifests.
The Taurus folks will also benefit from this alignment, but Leo is the star of the show as Venus and Mars dance their merry way through the sign. Jupiter brings positive developments and a sense of ease during the first week of the month.
