This month takes on a very different feel to recent months, if not from the very start then within the first few days. It was last month that both the Sun and Mercury, as they moved through your home and family sector moved into opposition with all three planets in your career sector. Even though Mercury has been there since late May, it is only in his final days that he will move into opposition, creating the same professional pressure or work/life balance tension that the Sun created. The difference this time is the experience from the Sun’s clash and his ability to approach any work/life balance with an intellectually savvy edge.
Yet even this will drop back when Mercury follows the Sun into a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and from then on the rest of the month is a different experience for both. While the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August here, this also creates a friendly aspect to Mars, still in the early months of his longest visit to Aries in 32 years. Because this will also put them at a friendly aspect to the South Node in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, the first three weeks of August is a chance to push the ‘reset’ button, especially on the bucket list you may have begun 2020 with.
Meanwhile, while things take an exciting turn for the better on the professional front with Mercury’s return to your work sector on 20th August and the Sun’s return on 23rd August and this will leave a playful part of your chart empty, not for long. Venus will return early next month to ensure life doesn’t become all work and no play. However, there is no doubt that the Sun and Mercury’s return to your work sector is good news professionally, especially with Jupiter and Saturn turning direct in your career sector next month. This is the start of the most exciting months of the year across the income, work and career fronts.
Aries August 2020 Love Horoscope
While the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your romantic sector, this has been a lot more welcome this year. Until the Sun returned in the final 10 days of July there had been no planetary activity in your romantic sector since August 2019 and there is still none, with the Sun on his own as we move into the new month. That will change when Mercury returns on 5th August but the most romantically charged weeks of 2020 don’t begin until Venus, the planet of love returns early next month. Venus and Mercury have both been held back because of retrograde phases, which is the reason for a late start on the romantic front this year.
However, this is something that your relationships have and will continue to benefit from, especially when it comes to Venus’ extended stay in your communication sector. While the focus has been more on your relationships this year and has been since the asteroid Juno returned for what should have been a two month visit to your relationship sector in November, for the majority of that time there has been nothing but support. However, this did become a bit tense in the middle part of July when Mars, in his early weeks in Aries clashed with Juno and in the process stress tested a balance between your personal and relationship needs.
This is what turns Venus’ late return to your romantic sector this year into an advantage, with a retrograde turn in your communication sector keeping her here since early April. Venus was on hand last month to give your heart and your relationships a voice and will continue to do that until she finally leaves on 8th August, four months after returning for what should have been a 24 day visit. The Moon will bring a chance to check in on your relationships from 21st August to 23rd August, while a visit to your romantic sector from 17th August to 19th August will result in a New Moon in its final hours.
Aries August 2020 Money Horoscope
While the first planet to reach your financial sector this year won’t arrive until next month, with the asteroid Juno returning a month before the Sun and Mercury, the transition begins this week. By transition, I mean that now that Uranus is in your income sector until 2026 and there is focus on money coming in all year, his retrograde turn and the start of his review phase is a chance to give money matters there turn. While the focus won’t shift to the side of the financial fence that is more focused on what you do with and how you manage the money you have until next month, Uranus retrograde turn on 18th August is the beginning of that transition.
It is also a case of perfect timing for with Jupiter in his last full month in retrograde motion in your career sector and Saturn in his first, last and only full month in retrograde motion there, this is a chance to explore untapped professional and income potential at the same time. With Uranus in retrograde motion for the rest of the year, as he turns his focus on the rear view mirror, something that will happen at this time every year until he leaves in 2026, this will give money matters their turn, when the time comes.
Meanwhile, Uranus will also benefit from Mercury’s return to your work sector on 20th August and the Sun’s return on 23rd August. This will have planetary activity in your income, work and career sectors and actively supporting each other, will begin some of the best months of the year across the income, work and career fronts. This begins just two days after Uranus turns retrograde, opening the doors to the past, second chances and untapped income potential as new doors open on the job front. The Moon’s return to your income sector from 10th August will be a chance to check in before Uranus turns retrograde.
Aries August 2020 Career Horoscope
While there might be some professional pressure or work/life balance tension at the start of the month that will clear within the early days and is more a hangover from last month. In the lead up to the Sun’s departure from your home and family sector on 22nd July, it moved into opposition with all three planets in your career sector, including Saturn less than three weeks after his return. Mercury will do the same before leaving on 5th July but as if knowing how this month will end, by then planets on both side of life’s fence will be seeing this as an opportunity rather than a challenge.
For while all three planets in your career sector in retrograde motion, with Jupiter and Pluto turning direct next month things won’t always remain this quiet. Especially once Mercury returns to your work sector on 20th August and the Sun on 23rd August. After clashing last month and in the early days of this month, the Sun and Mercury will go on to form a friendly aspect to all three planets in your career sector, completely turning things around. This will kick off the busiest months of the year on the job front, something that will be well underway and in full flight when Jupiter and Pluto turn direct in your career sector next month.
Knowing that the best months of 2020 across the income, work and career fronts will begin on 20th August and that the busiest months of the year are still in front of you, those work/life balance reminders that appeared to be a challenge last month were more an opportunity. Fortunately, the month begins with the Moon in your career sector and during the first two days of the month will ensure your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled. By the time the Moon returns again from 28th August to 30th August, the Sun and Moon will be in your work sector. The Moon will also make a timely visit to your work sector from 19th August to 21st August, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters when Mercury returns on 20th August.
