The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your career sector but from the moment he returned last month it was clear that this time was different. While the Sun will always turn the solar spotlight onto your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time every year, for the first time in 32 years Mars will be in your work sector throughout that time. This last happened in 1988 and for the same reason. Mars returned to your work sector in July 1988 and didn’t leave until January 1989 and now, 32 years later he is doing it again, not leaving until January 2022. Back then you had Saturn in your income sector and this time you have the South Node there.
The Sun will leave your career sector on 23rd August and Mercury is only here from 5th August to 20th August but with Venus returning early next month, while August is a good month across the income, work and career fronts September is destined to be even better. Before the Sun and Mercury leave a New Moon on 19th August could act as a catalyst, especially for new beginnings, across the income, work and career fronts. The Sun and Mercury will both end the month in your friendship sector, where they will not only have the support of all three planets in your communication sector but will be able to support Uranus, after he turns retrograde in your relationship sector on 16th August.
The Sun will help set the wheels in motion for a partnership of forces across the income, work and career fronts that will continue after they have gone and will end the month doing the same, this time across the communication, friendship and relationship building fronts. Meanwhile, held back by a retrograde phase Venus will finally return to an adventurous part of your chart on 8th August, where she will then spend the rest of the month. In partnership with Neptune and Chiron in a playful part of your chart, Venus will work to ensure life doesn’t become all work and no play.
Scorpio August 2020 Love Horoscope
With both planets in your romantic sector already in retrograde motion, Uranus’ retrograde turn in your relationship sector on 16th August puts even more focus on the past. For dreamy Neptune, in your romantic sector from 2012 to 2026, he will always spend from June to November of each year in retrograde motion but this year, the dwarf planet Ceres is along for the ride. Ceres only turned retrograde last month and will retrograde back out next month, making this the planet charged with updating your heart’s needs and priorities’ first, last and only full month in retrograde motion here.
Meanwhile, while still in the first full year of a nearly seven year visit to your relationship sector, Uranus’ retrograde turn is something that will happen each August until he to leaves in 2026. This makes having all planets in your romantic and relationship sectors in retrograde motion from 16th August a mix of the old and the new normal. The Moon’s return to your relationship sector from 10th August to 13th August will be the last while Uranus is still in direct motion and while you are still staying in the moment rather than focused on the past.
However, while all planets in your romantic and relationship sectors will be in retrograde motion from 18th August not all your romantic focus is on the past. The planet bucking the trend is Venus, with the planet of love finally returning to an adventurous part of your chart on 8th August. Held back by a retrograde phase, Venus will return to find the Sun and Mercury gone and that until she leaves early next month that she has the place to herself. This will put Venus at a friendly aspect to both planets in your romantic sector, creating a month rich with a mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia or especially from 8th August.
Scorpio August 2020 Money Horoscope
While the South Node has been in your income sector since early May until now it has been overshadowed by the North Node, which returned to your financial sector on the same day. Until they leave your two money houses in January 2022, the lunar nodes will work to maintain a balance between money coming in and money going out but they also have their own jobs to do. The North Node is more about the future and in your financial sector is focused on providing a sense of financial direction, confidence and purpose. There has been continuous planetary activity in your financial sector since the lunar nodes returned, so that is where the main focus has been.
However, that will change when Venus finally wraps up her four month visit to your financial sector on 8th August, leaving the North Node on its own for the first time since it returned. As the South Node has been on its own in your income sector all this time, this will help to even the scales. However, this is just one factor that goes its way this month, putting a lot more focus on where you are going and more on where you have been, looking for untapped income potential.
While there will be no planetary activity in your income sector until the Sun returns in November, there is a lot starting to happen on the job and career fronts. While this does mean that the planets moving through and especially towards the end of their visits will form a friendly aspect it also means that it will become easier to access untapped income potential. While the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your career sector, Mars is in the early months of his longest visit to your work sector in 32 years and is here now for the rest of the year. This is good news across the income, work and career fronts.
Scorpio August 2020 Career Horoscope
The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your career sector and to have Mercury move through from 5th August to 20th August is what you would expect at this time of year. This makes the planetary activity in your career sector this month, which only began with the Sun’s return on 22nd July very ordinary and what you would expect at this time of year. However, two factors make this extraordinary and not only here but across the income, work and career fronts and not just this month but for the rest of the year. Of those two factors, one is because of what is and the other because of what isn’t here.
The latter is Venus, who for the first time in eight years will still not be here by the end of August. The last time that happened was back in 2012 and for the same reason, which is that she is being held back by a retrograde phase and won’t return until early next month. With Mercury leaving on 20th August and the Sun on 23rd August, her late return is not only a chance to put in the more mundane legwork first but will extend the exploration of new career potential out to the end of September. The second factor is Mars, for the first time since 1988 the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos will be in your work sector throughout the Sun’s month long visit to your career sector and through Mercury and even Venus’ time here and for the same reason.
Mars is in the early months of his longest visit to your work sector in 32 years, keeping him here throughout all the planetary activity on the career front this year. What turns a very ordinary annual focus on career matters into game changing conditions across the income, work and career fronts is that for the first time in 17 years you have the South Node in your income sector. The South Node is on the hunt for untapped income potential after Jupiter left in December and becomes part of a team that will change the landscape of the remaining months of this financial and professional year.
