Here at YouQueen, we know how important love is to you, Pisces. We also know how helpful astrology can be when it comes to finding that once in a lifetime kind of love and keeping it in your life. This is why we’ve put together this love-report for the month of August to help you figure things out.
As you read through this report you’ll find which days are best for love and romance, which days you should stay in and what is going to be the best approach for you to take in matters of the heart for the entire month of August. Now, let’s get to it, shall we?
For Starters: A Few Things You Should Know
First, let’s take a look at where your major celestial players will be positioned in the skies this month. This will give a general idea of the energy you’ll be feeling over the next few weeks before we get down to the specifics and the nitty gritty of how you can make these transiting planetary energies WORK for you and help you in your quest to find that lasting love, or that unforgettable fling. Whatever you are looking for, we’ll help you find it.
First, we’ll take a look at your ruling planet, Neptune, and where you’ll feel the Neptunian energy in the month of August:
Neptune isn’t a very fast moving planet, so shifts in this planetary energy is not felt on a day-to-day basis. What is felt frequently, though, is the energy that comes from other faster moving planets aspecting Neptune, which is currently right at home in your own sign.
Things in your life have felt kind of fated for the last several months with a pretty constant stream of energy being transferred between Neptune and different celestial bodies that have come into opposition with emotional planetary energy. In August, the North Node, also known as the Karmic Node is going to spend the month just hanging out and trying to create balance with Neptune. This can make it seem like some days things just fall into place, some days you’ll feel guided by some larger force, and some days, well, some days you’ll feel like some cosmic trickster is seeking revenge for you having hurt their feelings in some way.
Venus and Mercury will also take their turns opposing Pisces as they move through Virgo throughout the month. All This can make you think you know what’s going on when really you do not have a clue. Not to mention Saturn, no longer in retrograde, squaring off with Neptune again toward the end of the month.
It’s not all bad or frustrating, so don’t stress. Actually, Neptunian energy can even be kinda nice sometimes. The magic daydreams brought about by Neptune’s presence in the air can be great. The problem arises when reality comes knocking at the door demanding you either get back to responsible-adult land before you turn into a pumpkin.
Next, let’s take a look at where Venus will be in August and where you’ll feel this energy the most:
Venus starts out the month of August finishing up a transit through warm-hearted Leo. This is a great place for Venus to be and sets a nice tone for love in the month of August.
You’ll be feeling like spending time in the comfort of your home, surrounded by the people and things you hold most dear to your heart- which, admittedly, is nothing really all that new for a Pisces, is it? Included in all of this is your desire to have someone special there enjoying the comforts of home right along with you- now, that, right there, is the good part.
On the 5th, Venus moves into meticulous Virgo, and into areas of your chart that impact the way you feel about stability, how you deal with others on a one on one basis, and often, how others relate to you on the whole. What may happen during this is a little rough as it will challenge you if you’re in a relationship that isn’t up to par: and enable you to either find the best path forward in making it better or letting it go so that you can move on to find the love you truly deserve.
In the last days of the month, Venus will move into Libra and the mood will shift a bit, creating more of a balance between things and easing some of the tensions brought about by Virgo. This will help to continue to work on the things you need to, in order to better whatever situation you happen to find yourself in when it comes to love.
Next, we’ll look at where Mercury, the planet of communication and understanding is positioned in your chart for the month of August:
Mercury will be positioned in Virgo for the entirety of the month, placing the emphasis for connecting with someone who makes you happy.Mercury enables you to really articulate your thoughts and say the things you mean to say- and this is a HUGE asset for Pisces, because while sometimes, you can be incredibly poetic: in emotionally charged situations it is a little harder for you to know what to say.
This transiting energy also boosts your ability to connect with someone special on an intellectual level, while Venus is working its magic helping you to connect on a romantic level. Connection will be a big factor this month: however, for you, Pisces, allowing yourself to speak up and be heard is going to be important. You’re good at allowing others to speak- and hearing them, and now, it’s your turn.
In this area of your chart, Mercury can push you to fill your life and your thoughts with the things that make you happy. You may start a new creative project, pick back up an old hobby, or just spend time in the company of those who bring you joy- and you will find that things feel a little easier once they are set in motion and rolling along, which helps a great deal.
Now that we know where you stand when it comes to communication and affection, let’s talk about where you will find passion—In other words, let’s have a look at Mars:
Mars, the planet we most closely associate with passion, starts out the first few days of the month of August in the deeply passionate, and more often than not, kinky Scorpio. This can be a little problematic for you as, well, sometimes, Pisces is a little bit prone to getting stuck in some sexual ruts- can you say dry spell? However, if you have been dealing with that, this can end it- and end it very well. Be open to a little exploration and play- you’ll find these things work out very, very well for you, Pisces.
It’s worth mentioning that Mars moving through this area of your stars can also bring about conflicts in relationships. Aggression and competition can cause problems, but these issues, should they come up, won’t hang around for long: but be careful how you handle this. Passive aggressive behavior will shoot you right in the foot, Pisces. So, if it makes you mad, say it, and say it directly- it will actually turn out better than you might think and you do not have to be afraid to stand up for yourself.
After the 3rd, Mars will move into fiery Sagittarius, making your desires all the more adventurous. What this boils down to, and we will definitely go deeper into this aspect of your love life for the month of August, is the stage being set for some sizzling summer fun, both in the streets and between the sheets. This tends to be absolutely alright with you- and really, a lot of what can emerge as a result benefits you a lot.
Now, I know what you’re thinking…”But that’s only three planets!” Well, you are correct there, but these are the quickest moving and most influential planets we deal with on a day to day basis, and when it comes down to love, these are the guys who will bring on the fluctuations of good days and not so good days for your sign as we go through the month. We’ll look into what the other planets are doing, as well, so don’t worry.
Why Going After What You Want Is All the Thing For Pisces in August
There are a number of aspects at play which will have quite a bit of your life on the whole, coming together in a great way, Pisces- and many of these things are things you worked hard on. Others still yet are just these awesome out of the blue things that simply work out. This helps your confidence levels to soar. As you just read, Venus starts out the month in Leo, where the energy is warm hearted and accepting, starting the month off on a good foot. Venus won’t be here long, but the positive energy will continue on as Venus makes its way through your stars.
In Virgo, you feel the down to Earth and affectionate Venus energy in a really positive way. Virgo rules over your happiness and this is where your “love” lies. Relationships and love are two separate things, really. You will find this to be fairly easy to adapt to, as you tend to bond very closely with people- often being friends with people even after the romance is over. Understanding that friendship always comes first is also pretty easy for you to do- and well, this will help a great deal as you search for love or try to work on patching up an existing relationship.
There are times when you tend to take on more guilt- and more pain than you really should, Pisces. This aspect will help you to begin to release those things and release the desires to give way too much of yourself to others when you’re not getting much in return. Though a little painful, ultimately, this puts you on the path to something much more satisfying and balanced.
If you are already in a relationship, this month one of two paths is there: either an existing relationship that has gone beyond unsatisfying needs to be let go of, or, you can work towards getting things back to a good place. If your partner is unwilling to meet you halfway, Pisces- you need to know that first option may be the way to go: but, you will again find love after that. There’s nothing in ANYONE’s chart that says “forever alone”, believe that. Now, if you are with someone who’s willing to work on things, now can be a time of just enchantment and really, carry a feel of new love- even though it isn’t. Not bad.
How You Can Get The Most Out Of The New Moon In Leo
The New Moon in Leo, happening on the 2nd, promises to bring a hint of excitement and adventure to your life in more ways than one. This New Moon brings the opportunity to start something new or make some improvements in your home life. For most Pisces, it’s important to have a really comfortable, stable homelife- so this helps, even for you singles who aren’t working on a love nest- because, the more comfortable and stable your home is, the more comfortable you will feel connecting with others.
This New Moon occurs right at the exact time Venus, also in Leo, and Uranus will be positively aspecting one another. What this means is a fresh start that will allow for you to follow your dreams, and Pisces: you have to be especially careful not to get all lost in those dreams that you miss out the very real signs that things aren’t what they seem. Do not ignore the red flags in favor of the warm fuzzies- there is better out there for you and there is no reason for you to do so.
Venus and Uranus making this positive exchange of energy at the time of the New Moon is no coincidence. August is a month of fresh starts and improvements to your life that feed your happiness. Keep an open mind to new possibilities and you’ll find a myriad of opportunity ahead of you, both in love and in your personal life.
Another awesome event that coincides with this New Moon is the aspect it will be making with Saturn that will soften the sometimes difficult Saturnian energy. This is really great considering this sets the tone for the weeks to come. The aspect with Saturn here is even more emphasized because, well, when we have the New Moon making this aspect that means the Sun is as well, and in Leo this is a pretty powerful kind of energy.
This aspect reminds you to go after whatever it is that you want most and to accept nothing short of what you know you deserve in life. With this New Moon in Leo, romance is highly favored and the feeling of warmth and being wanted is definitely there.
Along with the New Moon making an aspect that lightens up Saturn a bit, there is also an aspect with Lilith, the black moon, that poses a bit of a challenge. This forces you to choose between what is comfortable and that which is more dark and daring. The thing is, that dark and daring may well be the path that leads you into the love you’re looking for- and daring’s not so much your cup of tea, especially in love. Take a chance on yourself, here and do what makes you happiest.
Ways Mercury Is Really On Your Side This Month
Mercury is also going to be hanging around this area of your stars, as well, only Mercury will be here for the entire month, start to finish. Mercury here will be making several positive aspects that reinforce the good vibes that are moving through the very best places in your chart to make the changes you need to to find love- or connect more deeply with an existing love.
On the 4th, Mercury and the transiting Moon will make a connection, making it easier to feel the connections you have with others on an emotional level. Sharing feelings can be a positive experience and you’ll even feel more in-tuned with your own emotions.
Just a few days later, on the 8th, Mercury and Pluto share a positive exchange of energy, all in Earth signs. Deep conversations that help you to better understand yourself and your intrinsic motivations in life open your eyes to parts of life you’ve not yet explored. This energy is also great for personal evolution and growth and can be a marker for leveling up in life, or in your relationship, so to speak.
Later in the month, Mercury and Jupiter make a direct connection that lasts from the 21st-24th, all in Virgo. This fantastic energy brings forward feeling of optimism and hope for the future, as well as helping you in connecting with your partner, or yourself, on a spiritual level. This may be the most important factor, so don’t imagine that those you are drawn to- or your partner, won’t understand what you’re laying down. It’s actually pretty likely that they will.
Lastly, Venus and Jupiter make a direct connection in Virgo on the 28th. This is one of the most positive energies you can have in transit through your stars and is a great marker for growth in love and romance.
How To Harness The Power Of The Full Moon In Aquarius
On the 18th the Aquarius Full Moon illuminates the area in your stars that rules your karmic path and your reputation. This energy will be rather intense and you can use this time to bring an end to any of the things in your professional life that just aren’t working for you. If you have somehow lost the balance, Pisces- you will find that now, you can get it back and then some because beyond it being in your your own sign: a Full Moon in Aquarius is about the best ally you could have.
Aquarian Full Moons push us to think outside the box and find solutions to our problems in the least likely of places. Don’t get too hung up on the old ways of handling whatever problems may be in your life. While switching gears isn’t so much fun for you at times, particularly in terms of your love life: you may just find that it’s not that difficult to do, owing to this familiar watery energy.
This particular Full Moon, although powerful in and of itself, also has Venus making a major aspect with another of the more powerful celestial energies: Pluto. This isn’t a particularly comfortable placement for a Pisces, but it is one that can make for the changes you need to finally break free of SO much hurt and pain you have had holding you back.
Pluto has been working on areas of your chart involving your past, and past hurts, Pisces. This transit can make you feel rather broken down in some instances, and no-doubt you’ve gone through this in one way or another. What happens on the 18th though, this will be one of the peaks of Pluto tearing down the negative associations you’ve had over the years. Venus will make an amazing connection with Pluto in this fundamental area of your stars right at the same time the Lunar energy is at its peak.
Now it a perfect time to rid your life, or your psyche, of things that no longer serve a purpose when it comes to finding total happiness, and also, that this is a period where you can get closer to that special someone than you have before. There is a possibility here for twinges of insecurity or a fear of things taking a turn for the worse—Ignore those thoughts! That’s just fear talking to you, and fear is truly only an illusion.
When Venus and Pluto make this great connection, the potential for there to be some crazy love happening in your life is huge….HUGE. Pluto not only does its work by tearing away the negatives in your life and stripping you down to your rawest form, the planetary energy also can bring some intensely intimate experiences into your life.
How Mars Is Spicing Things Up Beyond Your Wildest Dreams
With Mars in Scorpio until the 3rd, you are going to find you need physical releases for tensions, energy and stress. Really, the beginning of August gives you the best of both worlds and will allow you to kinda choose which path you’d like to start the month out heading down. It’s truly a luxury to be able to pick and choose which direction your love life will go and you need to be just a bit more aggressive with things: so this energy will certainly help that along, Pisces.
As I mentioned earlier, Mars starts the month in the area of your chart that rules over your relationships, and with this transit comes a fiery, powerful surge of energy into your one-on-one encounters. There is always the potential for Mars to bring trouble but with Pisces, not so much as you aren’t typically very anger-driven, anyway.
After the 3rd, Mars will position itself in parts of your chart responsible for your darker side. This can bring out any pent up anger, disagreements in joint financial situations, or competition in your most intimate connections. The flip side to this is being able to harness this powerful energy and use it to generate passion you can then put into your life in a great way.
What To Do When Reality And Fantasy Come Head To Head
The month of August is proving to be pretty amazing when it comes to romance so far, and this can help you when it comes to making some lasting changes or additions to your love life. The main kink in the works this month comes toward the end, right around the 30th, when Saturn and Neptune square off, yet again.
You are likely familiar with this energy by now and Neptune being your ruler you may have been feeling it a bit stronger than most already. This has been happening of and on for what feels like an eternity.
Neptune aims to muddy the waters of reality and cause confusion in all areas of your life. Mars adds fuel to this fire and can cause you to see situations through a lens that is a bit off from reality.
Stay alert and do your best to communicate your thoughts and intentions clearly as you finish out the last few days of August. You can get through this relatively unscathed, but you’ve got to keep your eyes open and not let others pull the wool over them- again, just be careful not to put lipstick on a pig and you’ll be just fine.
One more thing that bears mentioning for the month of August is the fact that Mercury will be moving into another Mercury retrograde period in the final days of August. This can cause some confusion, miscommunication, and general frustration for you that will last well into September. We’ll talk more about this in next month's forecast, just know it is coming and that the last couple of days in August have all the makings of bringing some frustrations with them.
