Here’s your monthly horoscope for August 2018. What could be in store for this month? Almanac astrologer Celeste Longacre provides an astrological prediction at a glance for all 12 zodiac signs.
August begins with planet Mercury in retrograde motion. It will remain so until the 19th. During these periods, it is much better to rethink work that has already been done than start new projects. Intuition is heightened and new insights will be available. However, our routine bottom line may be a distant memory. Because of this, it is best to wait until after the 18th to make final decisions. Do take time to review current projects, though, as perspectives that are out of the usual are available.
