Here’s your horoscope for August 2023, based on the ancient practice of astrology. Longtime Almanac astrologer Celeste Longacre provides a monthly overview as well as at-a-glance predictions for all 12 zodiac signs. Take a gander at your horoscope.

It’s August already! Here in the north, it seems like summer just barely gets here and we are already mired in the lore of its disappearance. For those of us in seasonal zones, August is a time for gathering our nuts and preparing for the long inbreath that is winter. Jams and jellies are made, fruits and veggies are frozen and tomatoes and spaghetti sauce are canned

It sometime feels like a time of frenzy as we pass from the fun loving and outgoing sign of Leo into the organizational and detail-oriented one of Virgo. Keep those summer gatherings and cookouts going until after the 22nd when we start getting organized for the fall season. The school year begins, summer travel ends, and it’s time to return to the routine, calm, rhythm, and structure of fall. 

Jupiter is quite steady in the sign of Aries now where it will remain for the rest of the year except for a dip back into Pisces for all of November and much of December. This generally brings good luck to Aries individuals so they should be on the lookout for possible opportunities.  

This would also be a good time to stock up on some basic food necessities. Numbers of different people are warning of shortages later this year. Having a little bit extra of dried or canned food always helps us to feel secure when the gardens disappear.
