CANCER Horoscope

August 2018 ...

August is a time of consolidation – of proving something to yourself. It's ideal for building on prior initiatives. Not so much a time of new moves but of gathering the resources around you to solidify the directions you have already decided upon, or taken.

Yet security conscious Cancer can also have some serious reservations – that's just par for the course. Retro Mars is reminding you of where you've been stung before, or left hang out to dry. It's a worthwhile consideration. It doesn't have to spoil your party, it's just providing some insurance over...metaphorically speaking.

The August 11 Solar Eclipse is pressing a reset button on your life values, encouraging a concentration on what is solid in your world. This is about the 'keepers'. While some may measure this in assets and security, what you hold close to your heart, is what you truly value. Ideally this is about building on that.

It may force you to consider your financial stakes or earning potential in the material sense. But it's not the only consideration. What we 'own', or 'disown' is ultimately a reflection of our desires anyway.

For most of the month, beginning from the 8th, Venus, the planet of aesthetics and beauty, will move through your home and domestic sector. This makes for more time spent improving the appearance of your surrounds, home entertaining and improved family relations. Venus is still in square to your sign here though, so be warned, there can be added expenses involved, but it can help resolve a tricky situation around the 9th.

Assertive Mars moves opposite your sign from the 13th. Animal attractions or just animals? There is something about the magnetism of opposites here, but can also be the joy of competition. This is mainly affecting those born toward the very end of Cancer. You had it earlier this year between March and May, so perhaps there's something yet to be finalised and August is a good time to do it.

A brilliant month for the creative Cancerians as fruitful Jupiter is now picking up momentum, energising the most innovative and fun area of your solar chart. As it does it forms an encouraging trine to imaginative Neptune, firing those creative synapses in your brain.

Ideas seem to come out of nowhere – very powerful mid-month. Giving birth to something beneficial here and a great time for a romantic getaway. Mercury's additional forward momentum in your house of commerce, is also the time for developing business ideas and putting them into action from the 20th.

The Full Moon, of the 26th, rounding out August, is promising for dealing with those at a distance, all of your overseas connections and anything attached to publishing, especially if it has an educative slant. You may discover the truth in the axiom that a prophet is always better received outside of his/her own country.

Writing and correspondence could assume additional importance or bring extra benefits. The June born Cancers are the biggest beneficiaries of the Sun's Grand Trine with senior Saturn and ground-breaking Uranus, coincident with this lunation phase.

The Water Moon best reflects your feelings (AEST) through the 1st until the mid-evening, from the early afternoon of the 8th until the early afternoon of the 10th, from the evening of the 16th until the pre-dawn hours of the 19th and from the mid-afternoon of the 26th until the pre-dawn hours of the 29th.
