Planetary changes for August 2017:

These apply to everyone, however, if one of the planets is your planetary ruler it will have more of an effect on you.

  • August 3rd Uranus (*Aquarius) goes retrograde. What seems bad at the outset is actually good. Quick, sudden changes in romance look bad to start, but any arguing will only leads to more communication — a positive for all relationships.

  • August 4th Jupiter (*Sagittarius) squares Pluto. Growth and expansion relationship is delayed, though fruitful in the long run. Good things come to those who wait.

  • August 13th Mercury (*Gemini) goes retrograde. Nooooo, not again! If it feels like everything (and everyone) is out to get you,  THIS is why. Mercury retrograde screws up communication, travel, arguments, and money.

  • August 23rd Sun enters Virgo. This planetary change allows you to enjoy expansion in service, health, and employment. The last week of August brings growth to you and yours.

Aries is the sign of the self. But you need to look beyond yourself and explore with others. Trust your instincts though, or you'll end up with another pain-in-the-ass internet troll ruining your day.

Spice things up from the boring routine that you're currently in by encouraging your partner or best friend to be more adventurous. This is especially important around the 13th of August when the lack of communication could potentially cause problems. Be careful with how you communicate as you may not be fully understood.

You will get what you want this month — yay! But... just not how you want it — boo!

Love and romance are headed your way but bring some changes that aren't totally to your liking. Do what you can to overlook this and life will be good. If you can’t do that, you might just want to wait until September to make any big moves.

Beware August 13th, when you don't exactly have the best day. We're talking even more awful than you feel right now. Be prepared for the world of suck and the negatives won't hurt as much.

On the up side, career stuff blossoms even though communication and romance are on the rocks.

As always, trust your instincts and follow your heart. Yes, you feel things more deeply because you’re sensitive psychically and emotionally — just make sure you act on how you feel.

Dating is extra hard if you’re single because of past trust issues. If you take a chance, romance is yours.

Starting around August 3rd sudden changes in romance will happen out of nowhere. This can mean finally saying "see ya!" to a  f*ckboy or the beginning of a new relationship you might not feel totally ready for. At first, this will seem negative, but will actually have a positive ending. Don’t question yourself — trust your instincts when it comes to any partner.

Pisces are excellent at screwing up but just as good at recovering. Overindulgence is your calling card. The beginning of the month will be good if you don’t overdo it.

Pisces are great in the sack, but sometimes they need to be single for a while. However, they have a hard time remaining single because of sexual desire. August 11th things will blossom for recovering from negativity in your current relationship.
