Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
What you can expect this month can be summed up in a few key phrases, all of them cause for excitement. They are a drop in pressure, an increase in variety and the perfect conditions to ensure a balanced month. The latter is especially so when it comes to a balance between work and play, with the bar rising on both fronts in equal measure. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your work sector but for the first time in 17 years, you have the South Node in your income sector, while Mars is in the early months of his longest visit to your income sector in 32 years. While the Sun will leave your work sector on 23rd August and Mercury is only here from 5th August to 20th August, held back by a retrograde phase Venus won't return until early next month, continuing on from where they left off. So while August has all the ingredients for an exciting month across the income, work and career fronts, September is looking even better. However, while it is Venus that will ensure this month's potential across the income, work and career fronts continues into next month, she is working this month to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play. Venus is still in your financial sector at the start of the month, with her four month visit finally ending on 8th August, though not before working to leave you with your financial confidence fuelled and your financial wish list updated. It is then that Venus will return to an adventurous part of your chart, just three days after Mercury ends his two month visit in order to join the Sun in your work sector on 5th August. Venus will spend the rest of the month here and having waited so long to get here, she will not be sidelined. Meanwhile, Mercury's return to your relationship sector on 20th August and the Sun's on 23rd August will see the month end with your relationships getting their first real attention this year.
Week beginning Monday 3rd of August 2020
If there is any work tension or job pressure at the start of the week you don't need to fully embrace this but you don't want to ignore it either. The biggest danger isn't that this will linger and more how easy this would be to dismiss at the time and then forget about once it is over and especially as it will ease fairly dramatically on Wednesday. Falling in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, this is the Full Moon that will always fall at some point during the Sun's month long visit to your busy work sector and is a test for how well you know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. This was always going to be the only test this month and with income, work and career potential continuing to unfold for months, the early days of the new month are the perfect time to put this to the test. The reason why this will be easy to forget is because of the fast turnaround. It begins with the Moon's departure on Wednesday and Mercury's return to your work sector just minutes later, with the intellectually savvy edge that can help you work smarter.
Monday 3rd of August 2020
The Moon returns to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart today to find the Sun in your work sector, something that will always happen at this time of year but for the first time since there has been any planetary activity there. The Sun has only been here for 12 days and you are just starting to get a sense of the income, work and career options unfolding. When the Moon clashes with the Sun to create tomorrow's Full Moon this will stress test know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off but as the only real test the bigger danger is how easy this would be to ignore.
Pisces is the twelfth and ultimate sign of the zodiac. You might be last but you are certainly not least!
Pisces rules the feet and those feet carry the weight of the entire body! Sometimes you might feel like you're carrying the weight of the world too.
Yours is a mutable, fluid, water sign. The symbol for Pisces is two fish swimming in opposite directions. This could represent the way that your conscious and unconscious minds pull you in different directions, or your spiritual life versus your material life.
Perhaps those fish symbolise the way that your naturally compassionate and sympathetic nature takes on the burdens of others, even when it's to the detriment of your own direction and well-being.
Traditionally your ruling planet is Jupiter, named after the King of the Gods and renowned for his benevolence and joviality. You are benevolent by nature and you do love a good laugh!
Modern day astrology gives co-rulership of Pisces to the planet Neptune, named after the Roman God of the sea. It seems that Neptune's cloudy, nebulous, undefined energy is also a good fit for your poetic soul. We know fish belong in the sea!
Our oceans are mighty and powerful and we shouldn't downplay the powerful affect that you can have in the lives of others. As a friend or co-worker, you are the one who will willingly agree to shoulder the burden or go the extra mile. You can be completely selfless when it comes to helping others.
For this reason we find many of you in our hospitals and helping professions, although of course some of you have work that ties you to the sea or fishmongery. You're naturally adaptable, so you can adapt to most roles.
You're intuitive and highly impressionable, probably the most psychic of the water signs, so the feelings and moods of the people around you can affect you deeply, more deeply than perhaps you realise.
You could be likened to a big sponge, soaking up all kinds of moods, feelings and psychic debris while you rub shoulders with others during your everyday life, you may not be aware that this is happening. You need times of solitude to let go of this emotional clutter, to feel refreshed.
Sea air is the most wonderful balm for the troubled Pisces soul. Those of you who aren't lucky enough to live near the coast, should aim to visit often. Water is your element and it's totally cleansing. Long baths can be similarly healing, swimming too.
Your sign gets along best with the other water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, and with the earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, but then it's a rare Pisces who doesn't get along well with just about everyone!
The position of Jupiter and the other planets in your birth chart can mitigate how you express and experience your Pisces nature. If you'd like to know more about your horoscope, one of our astrologers will be happy to help.
