Your August 2017 Horoscope

by Zen Rose Garden

Theme of the Month

In August, we are deeply influenced astrologically by the energy of the Sun ruling Leo, encouraging every person to let their unique light shine in the world! Leos are the natural actors and actresses of the Zodiac, and this month everyone is influenced in some way with the desire to be center stage! Take advantage of this energy to promote your ideas, dreams and aspirations!

In the Zodiac, Leo not only coaxes your extrovert side to come out and play, it also encourages your bold nature and ability to hunt for yourself. How healthy this archetype is within you, determines how able well you take care of yourself and your pack.

August Horoscope Overview

This month, the Sun in Leo is influencing the balance of willpower, loyalty, radiance, generosity, strength, healthy pride in self and the ability to be both center stage and happily sharing the spotlight with others, which are all characteristics of the HEALTHY, positive Leo Zodiac. If the opposites of these qualities are manifesting this month in you such as arrogance, unhealthy pride, wanting it to be all about you at the expense of others, selfishness, manipulation, entitlement or expectation, the UNHEALTHY, negative aspects of Leo Zodiac are coming forth.

Do not worry! This is OK! The Sun is just shining a light on areas you need to work on! Instead of feeling bad for being a jerk, recognize your actions, forgive yourself and figure out why you feel the way you do! Then, return to the true energy of Leo and let your authentic, true, beautiful light shine!
