Monthly Horoscope Scorpio – August 2018

The first couple of weeks of August could be a testing time in your love life. It seems that your relationship may be stuck in a rut and your sweetheart – and his or her extended family too, no doubt – is not shy of letting you know that they’re bored, frustrated or disappointed in you. That stings, and you can expect some considerable anger to surface, particularly on August 1st, 6th and 9th. With gentle Venus moving into the most vulnerable area of your chart early in August, you may feel overwhelmed with emotions and in need of some help – so ask. Things will settle down following the partial Solar Eclipse on August 11.

At this point, you’ll gain clarity of mind about your identity, your status in the relationship and your self-worth -and crucially, you’ll stop feeling like a victim. This and the fact that Mercury turns direct again on August 19th helps you to defend yourself against unwarranted attacks from family members – and a beautiful trine on the 19th suggests that you and your sweetheart re-find one another and get your lives back on track once more. You could use the energies of the Grand Trine on August 25th to set some boundaries for your extended family and your friends. Work with your sweetheart to agree that third parties won’t come between you again. Communication between the two of you is flourishing now and that communication will ensure that you work together as a team now, healing the anger and looking forward to a bright future.
