Welcome to your astrology forecast for the week of August 3 - August 9 cosmically curious ones!

Last week has us preparing for the Full Moon. With two planets changing signs, and a Full Moon in the astrology overview this week, it’s certainly going to be fun! The week starts out with the Sun in Leo and the Moon in Aquarius which means we will be adventurous and ready to play.

The Full Moon in Aquarius Arrives

We will have our hearts open and easily meet new people. The Full Moon in Aquarius happens on Monday, so expect the things you’ve been trying to manifest to pop up. It’s fun to see how everyone seems to win at once, and solidifies the validity of the planetary forces.

Usually, on a Full Moon, people will receive news about jobs, homes, relationships, and opportunities. Even if it’s a “no”, you can now free up that energy to focus somewhere else. If you’ve been working towards something, keep an eye out for doors to open even if they aren’t the exact ones you envisioned. Sometimes the Universe offers you something even better than you imagined.

Globally, we will see revolutionary themes with this Full Moon as the Leo Sun and brave Aquarius Moon push us to envision a better future.

Mercury Joins the Sun in Leo

The day after the Full Moon, we have the planet of communication, Mercury, joining the Sun in the sign of Leo.

We can expect this to help us express ourselves with more confidence and positivity. If you’ve been wanting to come out of your shell after being cooped up at home, maybe you’ll find safe ways of branching out, and creating some new opportunities in work and in your personal life!

This is a positive position for Mercury that can help us come up with creative new jobs, and ways to socialize. August 2020 astrology is looking up!

Venus Moves Into Emotional Cancer

We are not only going to have the lovely energy of Leo and Aquarius this week helping us connect to people. We also have Venus moving into Cancer, which means we are going to look to bond with people on a deeper level.

All this heart-opening energy could very well mean new love for you, or reaching deeper levels of it in a relationship you already have. This happens on Friday, so you can expect intimate date nights, and conversations where people are really trusting and honest over the weekend.
