Welcome to August, sweet Pisces. The summer is coming to a close. Last month, when the “asteroid of commitment” Juno went retrograde, you saw healthy forward momentum in your love life. This theme continues on Sunday, August 7, when lover Venus, currently in Cancer, trines (a favorable aspect) dreamy Neptune in your sign, Pisces. This luxurious transit leaves you feeling lazy and in love. So whether you use this Sunday to focus on you, and only you, with skincare, baths, and self-love, or with a partner enjoying sexual fantasies, your mission for the night is to feel good.
There’s one more night in the first half of August that you should take it easy, Pisces, and that’s Thursday, August 11. Not only does this bring a full moon, which can make the vibe feel anxious and paranoid, but the lover planet Venus moves into bossy Leo. As a result, even if your romantic partnership or single life is great, there is still a forecast for drama. So, once again, please treat yourself to bundles of self-care. Regardless of your relationship status, it could be an ideal night to catch up on alone time. Taking time for yourself can be challenging for you, Pisces. You’re such an empathetic and romantic water sign. However, restful nights that are all about you, not a crush or partner, are crucial to your overall health and, as a result, the health of your love life.
Taking it easy seems to be your theme for the month, Pisces. Don’t worry. You can still work and socialize, but be gentle with yourself. On Sunday, August 21, the communication planet Mercury, which is currently in its home sign of perfectionist in Virgo, opposes your ruling planet, dreamy Neptune, which is in your sign, Pisces. As a result of this opposition, you may feel drained around this time, so please allow yourself to rest and get plenty of sleep this weekend. When hardworking Virgo season begins the next day, on Monday, August 22, you become busier, whether with work, community organizing, or a passion project such as learning an instrument or writing a book. Virgo season keeps you busy, Pisces, so make sure to catch up on rest during the first half of August as much as possible.
Time management is on your mind when Uranus, the rebel of the zodiac, begins a five-month long retrograde starting on Wednesday, August 24. Uranus retrograde is about reevaluating what’s working for you and what isn’t. Your assignment, wise fish of the zodiac, is to access your schedule and ensure you have enough time for self-care to enjoy delightful Pisces activities, such as making love, sleeping, taking long baths, and being the most compassionate lover anyone could ask for. Use the new moon in Virgo, the healer of the zodiac, on Saturday, August 27, to meditate on your goals and then begin to put them into action. You’ve got this, Pisces, and remember, don’t sleep on sleep!
