CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Horoscope For Every Star Sign For August 2018”

Ascension Avatar note: The 13-sign zodiac should be the astrology standard (it was no shock to learn in 2014 I’m a Pisces, not an Aries)! Check your natal sign in the 13-sign chart! 🐬

 

It is already the eighth month of the year, and yeah, it cannot be denied that it almost feels crazy. The year has been nothing short of a roller coaster ride, be it politics, society, arts of the stars, for that matter.

The month of July alone saw an insane amount of astral movement, starting from a complete lunar eclipse, a Chiron Retrograde and so on. Mercury is in retrograde already and will remain the same for the major part of August as well. Without further delay, let us get to the horoscopes.

Aries:

It will be a good time for change of any kind. Aries generally feel effects of solar eclipses more than the other signs and the one lined up for August will definitely have an effect, although subtle and positive. It will help you make changes in your life that you have been wanting for a long time. It is a month laden with good outcomes, so make the most of it.

Taurus:

Sugar coating anything never leads to any positive results so here is what it is: the month of August will not be cakewalk. You will face exhaustion of all kinds so make it a point to take care of yourself. You have to be the person to look after yourself. The month will not be all exhaustion and even if it is, you will have a ray of sunshine, which is people who love you coming through for you and making you feel special and energised. Let people take care of you as well because you do have friends and family who genuinely love and care for you.

Gemini:

It is going to be a good month. No major changes should happen but that does not mean that there is nothing you have to look forward to this month. You will have the opportunity to re-centre and find a goal that is both worthwhile and lucrative. You are going to be enjoying some good times.

Cancer:

2018 as a whole is the year of your career but August will be a test — a test of your tenacity. We all know that fortune favours the bold so do not be afraid of doing things that you have not done before because that will have an immense effect on your career hereafter. You may be pushed to your limits but you have to have faith and keep at it because nothing is impossible and especially nothing for you. You will reap good results if you put in the hard work and have perseverance.

Leo:

Leo, it is going to be an important month. August will bring to you the opportunity and time to get rid of everything that is holding you back or is not good for you. This is an extremely internalised process, which is why while you will be feeling the emotional brunt of it, others will see you living your best life. Adding to that, you might find yourself making significant changes in your career. As a whole, even though all of this sounds complicated, you will alright as none of it will be anything you cannot handle.

Virgo:

It is going to be good month with regard to money matters. You will find yourself in a good place to spend a little more than you would but while you’re doing that, make sure you find yourself some lucrative investments too. Do not forget to have fun, though.

Libra:

Get ready for some truth bombs because this month will set aside your real and your fake friends aside for once and for all. Now, this can be trying for a lot of us but it is what is good for us in the long run. Romantically, single or dating, just take things easy and have fun with whoever you are with. Love does not always have to be serious, so just have fun, laid back.

Scorpio:

There are two things that assume the center stage this month, self-care and drama. We can imagine how intrinsically these two things are linked at a very basic level.

Sagittarius:

There will be some issues with authority this month, but nothing that you cannot handle. All you need to do is just focus. You might want to go on a trip when conflict arises due to your inherent love and need for travelling but remember that you will need to approach problems head on in order to solve them.

Capricorn:

August will remind you that life does not last forever so it is the duty of every individual to enjoy life and not spend all of it working all the time. It is definitely admirable, how much you work, but you tend to forget other aspects of your life.

Aquarius:

Love is a wonderful thing but it needs to stand the test of time to last, which this month will present before you, if you are in a relationship. Professionally, it will be an excellent time for a change.

Pisces:

Find things that you love doing and things will fall into place as they must. Find time for yourself and do not be guilty about it.

SAMANTHA KING: “Your Two Conflicting Personality Traits And How To Make Peace Between Them, Based On Your Zodiac Sign”

gemini-dream-shadowlee-is-3

Aries

You’re a free spirit who enjoys adventure and craves for authenticity in life, but your perfectionist sidekick prevents you from savoring joy and getting lost in the moment.  Consider allowing yourself to sit with your emotions, no matter how inconvenient they are, and accept that you can only influence what is in your control.

Taurus

You’re a pleasant and trustworthy companion, but you hardly find it in you to trust others.  While you invest yourself a lot in relationships, you ban people from your life without second thoughts when things don’t go your way.  Learn to make room in your life for tolerance, empathy and mutual respect, and you might discover your opposing traits can reach conciliation.

Gemini

You want to be friends with everybody, but you can’t accept the differences in people (or in yourself).  It is only when you are willing to take people for who they are you will find solace in the company of kindred spirits.

Cancer

You’re a hopeless romantic, but you easily get bored.  Your passionate core makes you invest a lot in relationships and even spill the three magic words way sooner than your partner may be prepared to hear them.  You want it all and you want it now, but your interest fades away as soon as you get to know the other better.  Learn to channel your energy in rationalized bits and accept that keeping yourself focused on other aspects of your life as well (not just your love life) can present you with serendipitous moments.

Leo

You enjoy helping others on a material plan, but you’re greedy with emotional support, and this often makes you feel misunderstood or not thanked enough for.  Learn that in life we need to give in order to receive, and while helping a friend get a job is a selfless and wonderful act, they may rather be more in need of encouragement so they get things done themselves.

Virgo

You’re often stuck in between the need to ground yourself and follow a strict system of values and morals, and the desire to break free and live spontaneously regardless of what happens tomorrow.  You love being the center of attention, but you grow jealous once you feel ignored.  You can make ends meet by allowing yourself to be both rigorous and creative, by turning your inner control freak into a master of imaginative planning.

Libra

You’re chasing eternal love but you’re unwilling to work for it.  Your seductive element likes all things beautiful and inspiring, but when the script in your head fails to match reality you bail out without much explanation.  Learn to look more deeply into things and take the time to actually know a person, you might be surprised that the one thing you’ve been looking for is right under your nose.

Scorpio

You’re very protective of your friendships, but also very vengeful.  If someone crosses a line with you, you shun them without further notice and oftentimes without giving them the benefit of a doubt.  Learn from your own sensitivity that nobody’s perfect and channel your inner strength into forgiveness — everyone you meet holds an inner battle that you may not know about.

Sagittarius

You’re a natural born empath, but you keep too much to yourself and that makes it hard for you to control your anger.  You show a lot of concern to other people’s needs but fail to express your own concerns up to the point where you lash out at others.  Create balance in your life by addressing your own needs and expectations openly to people and learn to say no when you can’t deal with something any longer.

Capricorn

You’re kind hearted and generous but lazy.  You easily get comfortable around others and once a friendship, relationship or business deal is sealed, you’ll just lie there and consider yourself involved just because you’re present.  Learn to participate and become more proactive and engaged in your own life and partnerships, it takes two to tango and three to make a happy crowd.

Aquarius

Your craving for independence, wanderlust and adventure and your consuming desire to love, be loved and share a fantastic relationship can mend together beautifully once you stop trying to control your future and accept that while not all people are as libertine as you, the key to successful connection is embracing each others’ differences.

Pisces

You put on a fantastic show of seduction and mystery, but you’re needy.  Remember, the things you’re looking for in others are the things you mirror to the outside world.  Spend more alone time with yourself and your needs and adjust your expectations of others accordingly to what you can offer the world.

SOUVIK RAY: “Learn These Demonic Traits Of Each Zodiac Sign And Become A Better Person”

Dark Side Astrology (2).jpg

Who said you don’t have a dark side?  Read on to find out some horrors about your personality that are determined by your sun sign.

 

1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)

 

Primeval and brutal in nature, you don’t realise your aggression until the deed has been done.  Subtlety can take a back seat in your naive mind that is ready to follow the rough vision of how you see the world.  Forget bottling up or being diplomatic, you are unable to acquire such skills of survival.

2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Stubborn, materialistic and greedy, “let’s live to eat and let’s not eat to live” could well be your motto.  Your personality of being stingy and possessive often makes many people dislike you.  While viewing life as this pillow to rest, you do things that only suit you without any consideration for others.

3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Highly adaptable and curious about everything, the Gemini’s intelligence is superficial to the point that they parrot what they have heard rather than checking the facts for themselves.  Nevertheless, you are a chatterbox despite carrying out uninteresting conversations with others (all in an effort to appear more intelligent).  Emotionless and lacking compassion, those who have a high opinion of you, don’t know how mediocre and shallow you are.

4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Hyper-sensitive and with the ability to take offence easily, people are wary about what they have to say to you.  Your view on life is rather childish and putting up with your moods is quite a burden for the people who love and care for you.  Unable to confront reality, you live in the past, in better times, which all exist in your head.  This over-excessive nostalgic pining makes you borderline psychotic.

5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Convinced that you are God’s gift to the world, you don’t realise how horribly ridiculous you actually are in reality.  Your dirty little secret is your enormous inferiority complex that you make up with your dominating personality among your group of friends.  You live through them, because by yourself, you are nothing.  Lacking clear sightedness, you also behave like a spoilt brat with a bossy attitude that doesn’t rub off well on others.

6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Unlike the Leo, your inferiority complex makes you take the place of sidekick, often going as far as being treated like a doormat.  You think it’s all in the name of friendship, but you never realise you are being used.  Other than your lack of self-value, your obsession with tidiness and order is bordering mania.  This affects your uptight personality, causing you to go from one extreme to another.

7. Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You often feel you are walking off the pirates plank as you live your life to please others because what they think of you is always on your mind.  This add to your fake personality and the your hesitance at making choices.  If there is one think that describes you, it’s a bomb that’s ready to explode any time, covered by a smiley face.

8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Sly, inquisitive, aggressive and intimidating, it scares you to death that you are actually alone and unloved.  You like that your cunning nature stirs ill feeling, because you see evil everywhere.  In order to cover your ass, you manipulate others to take your side.

9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Your interest in culture, spirituality and your overall open mindedness is simply a mask to hide how dull and uninteresting you are.  You have no reflections or opinions of your own and often repeat what you have read about or heard.  This makes you think you are wise, which somehow gives you the right to exaggerate.  Other than that, your fickle nature and instability is a curse you cannot handle.

10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Your competitive and calculating nature surprisingly covers up that burning desire to crush all those who stand in your way.  While focusing on your long term goals, you forget to be interesting, while living in the present.

11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Desperately trying to stand out of the crowd, you try to be different by displaying your non-conformism.  Sadly, you are not that black sheep in the entire flock.  However being different often gets you in trouble, especially when you can’t fit in with those who actually do stand out.  Perhaps it’s your eccentricity that others view as borderline psychotic.  Friendship is sacred to you, but you don’t realise you are looking in the wrong places.

12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Living in your world and going with the flow isn’t always a good thing especially in the case of Pisceans.  Unable to think independently, your instability and opportunism can have catastrophic effects.  Your mood swings aren’t any good either, where your sudden changes in personality can make certain people avoid you like the plague.  Lacking a backbone you never know how to say no to things that you don’t want to do.

13. Ophiuchus (November 29 – December 17)

As a new sign in the zodiac, not much is known yet about the negative traits.  You have a bad reputation with monogamous relationships due to your jealous and judgmental nature coupled with your temperamental rage.  Your dry sarcasm is disliked while you only associate with people who you think are useful helping you succeed.

DAVID WOLFE: “How Compatible Is Your Relationship According To Your Zodiac Sign?”

compatible-signs

No two zodiac signs approach relationships in quite the same way.  Capricorns, for example, hate vulnerability and experimentation while Aquarians welcome both with open arms.

Surely, then, a Capricorn and Aquarian could never get along in a relationship — right?

Wrong!  The truth is that any two signs — no matter the astrological distance between them — can form a lasting, meaningful relationship.  In this post we’ll be exploring the various types of zodiac relationships, what they provide and how you can make the most of each.

Let’s start with the most basic.

Same Sign Relationships

Dating someone with the same zodiac sign as you can feel sort of like dating a mirror at times.  The shared sign means you both possess many of the same values, quirks and insecurities.  Should you engage in such a relationship, prepare to learn many lessons regarding the art of self-acceptance.

Also prepare for awkward sibling-esque moments.  You can minimize these by maintaining your individuality in the relationship and putting effort into frequent romantic activities.

One Sign Apart

  • Aries: Pisces, Taurus
  • Taurus: Aries, Gemini
  • Gemini: Taurus, Cancer
  • Cancer: Gemini, Leo
  • Leo: Cancer, Virgo
  • Libra: Virgo, Scorpio
  • Scorpio, Libra, Sagittarius
  • Sagittarius: Scorpio, Capricorn
  • Aquarius: Capricorn, Pisces
  • Capricorn: Sagittarius, Aquarius
  • Pisces: Aquarius, Aries

As in our aforementioned Capricorn-Aquarius example, major differences in romantic approach begin to appear when you date someone even just one sign away from you.  To put it simply, if you want a dynamic relationship this is a good place to start looking.

Expect plenty of tension.  This will not be an ‘easy’ relationship.  But, when maintained properly, it will be quite a rewarding one when that tension boils over into exciting and explosive passion.

Patient, well-thought-out communication is key to success in a relationship between individuals one sign apart.  While partners will never totally understand each other, they can learn many things about human nature and romance by spending time together.

Two Signs Apart

  • Aries: Sagittarius, Aquarius
  • Taurus: Pisces, Cancer
  • Gemini: Aries, Leo
  • Cancer: Taurus, Virgo
  • Leo: Gemini, Libra
  • Virgo: Cancer, Scorpio
  • Libra: Leo, Sagittarius
  • Scorpio: Virgo, Capricorn
  • Sagittarius: Libra, Aquarius
  • Capricorn: Scorpio, Pisces
  • Aquarius: Sagittarius, Aries
  • Pisces: Capricorn, Taurus

The most successful ‘friends with benefits’ tend to reside in this category.  Both signs will always be represented by compatible elements.  For example, Libras are represented by air while Leos are characterized by fire.  The former needs the latter to burn.

Should individuals two signs apart find themselves in a genuine relationship, it will usually progress naturally out of a close friendship.  That said, should you engage in such a relationship, beware the friendship trap.  Make sure you find ways to keep the love spark going.

Three Signs Apart

  • Aries: Cancer, Capricorn
  • Taurus: Aquarius, Leo
  • Gemini: Pisces, Virgo
  • Cancer: Aries, Libra
  • Leo: Taurus, Scorpio
  • Virgo: Gemini, Sagittarius
  • Libra: Cancer, Capricorn
  • Scorpio: Leo, Aquarius
  • Sagittarius: Virgo, Pisces
  • Capricorn: Aries, Libra
  • Aquarius: Scorpio, Taurus
  • Pisces: Gemini, Sagittarius

Relationships in this category often lead to issues resembling parental conflicts (Mommy and Daddy issues).

Those who engage in such a relationship should prepare for clashes, with each side taking turns being the ‘parent’ and ‘child.’  But this dynamic is what keeps the relationship active.  Both people will learn about conflict and compromise in a way that helps them heal old wounds.  Also, when these two signs team up, they become an unstoppable force and are able to achieve anything!

Four Signs Apart

  • Aries-Leo-Sagittarius
  • Taurus-Virgo-Capricorn
  • Gemini-Libra-Aquarius
  • Cancer-Scorpio-Pisces

Mates in this category have signs of the same element.  This leads to a relationship abundant in harmony.  Partners feel no shame in exposing even the most embarrassing of personal details with one another.

It’s in such a relationship that one learns how to be vulnerable.  Should the relationship end, it will have provided each person with the confidence and willingness to go forward and open themselves up to future partners.

Care should be taken to maintain some mystery and not expose too much too soon.

Five Signs Apart

  • Aries: Virgo, Scorpio
  • Taurus: Libra, Sagittarius
  • Gemini: Scorpio, Capricorn
  • Cancer: Sag, Aquarius
  • Leo: Capricorn, Pisces
  • Virgo: Aquarius, Aries
  • Libra: Pisces, Taurus
  • Scorpio: Aries, Gemini
  • Sagittarius: Taurus, Cancer

When individuals five signs apart come together, the result is a truly odd relationship.  Observers will find themselves wondering how in the world such different people could ever come together so well.

And believe me, they are different; they’ve got nothing in common astrologically.  They may even have opposing ideas as to what a relationship should be.  But through work and dedication, each person can learn what service means in a relationship as they cater to one another’s needs.

Opposite Signs

  • Aries-Libra
  • Taurus-Scorpio
  • Gemini-Sagittarius
  • Cancer-Capricorn
  • Leo-Aquarius
  • Virgo-Pisces

Have you ever heard the term ‘opposites attract?’  That’s definitely the case when it comes to signs that reside across from one another on the zodiac wheel.  Such partners often make a great team, perfectly contrasting one another.

Should you engage in such a relationship, expect to gain a new sense of perspective.  Your opposite zodiac sign partner may ‘complete the picture,’ so to speak — providing you an understanding of the world that helps you better understand your place in it.

Which type of zodiac relationship are you in right now?  If you’re not in a relationship, which type appeals to you most? Share your thoughts on the topic in the comments!
