August 2020

The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your career sector but from the moment he returned last month it was clear that this time was different. While the Sun will always turn the solar spotlight onto your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time every year, for the first time in 32 years Mars will be in your work sector throughout that time. This last happened in 1988 and for the same reason. Mars returned to your work sector in July 1988 and didn't leave until January 1989 and now, 32 years later he is doing it again, not leaving until January 2022. Back then you had Saturn in your income sector and this time you have the South Node there. The Sun will leave your career sector on 23rd August and Mercury is only here from 5th August to 20th August but with Venus returning early next month, while August is a good month across the income, work and career fronts September is destined to be even better. Before the Sun and Mercury leave a New Moon on 19th August could act as a catalyst, especially for new beginnings, across the income, work and career fronts. The Sun and Mercury will both end the month in your friendship sector, where they will not only have the support of all three planets in your communication sector but will be able to support Uranus, after he turns retrograde in your relationship sector on 16th August. The Sun will help set the wheels in motion for a partnership of forces across the income, work and career fronts that will continue after they have gone and will end the month doing the same, this time across the communication, friendship and relationship building fronts. Meanwhile, held back by a retrograde phase Venus will finally return to an adventurous part of your chart on 8th August, where she will then spend the rest of the month. In partnership with Neptune and Chiron in a playful part of your chart, Venus will work to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play.


Week beginning Monday 10th of August 2020

The Moon might only impact an area of your chart for a few days but this week it finds itself in the right place at the right time numerous times. This is the case from the get go, with the Moon leaving your work sector in the early hours of the week but on the same day that Mars moves into his final month here and during the Sun and Mercury's first, last and only full week together in your career sector. After giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters that you will continue to benefit from, the Moon will return to your relationship sector on Monday with equally positive implications. This last visit before Uranus turns retrograde here over the weekend will give the Moon a chance to form a friendly aspect to all three planets in your communication sector. As they are already in retrograde motion, this means that before the relationship focus shifts to the past there is a chance to give the past and unsaid words a voice.


Tuesday 11th of August 2020

It is a win/win today for your relationships and the communication lines. As the Moon makes its last visit to your relationship sector before Uranus' retrograde turn here over the weekend it is drawing on the support of all three planets in your communication sector. As all three are in retrograde motion and Uranus is about to open the doors to the past and second chances on the relationship front, this is a chance to capitalise on a chance to already give the past and unsaid words a voice. However, this time last week those same three planets were under pressure, with support from the Moon now helping to boost your confidence on the communication front as well.

About Scorpio

Information about your birth sign


Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, traditionally ruled by the red planet Mars, who was the mythological Roman god of war and fertility.

Your sign is a steadfast, sensuous, deep feeling water sign and your symbol is the scorpion which has a paralysing, sometimes deadly, stinger at the end of its tail. This gets your sign some stingy bad press, but only from those who don't know your true scorpio ways.

Like your good self, scorpions are extremely resilient, they survive in a wide variety of habitats, including tropical forests, deserts and places of extreme temperatures. They move furtively on the ground and hide under leaves and rocks, or bury themselves in sandy soil.

A scorpion is tiny and will usually only sting to defend itself. If you were to corner a live one and poke it repeatedly with a stick, you might see it arch its tail across its back and literally sting itself to death. This little arachnid would rather commit suicide than allow anyone to torment or ridicule it. This says something profound about your profound sign.

You may be ruled by a red planet but it's unlikely to be the predominant colour in your wardrobe, although some attribute red to your sign. You usually incline towards smart blacks and midnight blues, you prefer to blend in. A real scorpion likes to hide, which is difficult in a bright red sweater!

Your sign is of fixed modality, which means that you have great tenacity and staying power in most situations but, like the scorpion, if you feel threatened or ridiculed in any situation, your natural impulse is to abruptly end it!

In modern day astrology, the rulership of your sign has also been assigned to the dwarf planet Pluto. This planet may be tiny but we should not underestimate it. Pluto rules atomic power!

With mighty Mars and power planet Pluto as your co-rulers, yours is the most deeply passionate sign. You feel things acutely and your feelings run deep, but your desire to stay hidden means that you rarely show the emotional storms and tempests when they happen within.

Your innate character is to be steadfast, trustworthy and loyal. You play your cards close to your chest and often leave others mystified. Your sign rules birth, death, sex, regeneration, transformation and all of our shared resources and secrets. You're one of the best at keeping secrets, especially your own!

Many Scorpios have strong psychic ability and others will become concerned with the psyche, to become hypnotherapists and psychotherapists. You are suited to a number of professions, we might find you working in a hospital or bank, at the butchers or in demolition. Whatever you do, you generally do with commitment.

You get along best with the other water signs, Cancer and Pisces and the earth signs of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, but this can be mitigated by the influence of other planets in your horoscope, particularly your ruling planet Mars.

If you don't know which sign Mars was transiting when you were born, or you'd like to know more about your horoscope, one of our astrologers will be pleased to help you.
