Does love need some TLC?

Outer achievements bring inner satisfaction

Set your scene for the future

Pay attention to partners and all double acts at the top of August, Scorpio. The course of true love might not be smooth sailing. More like rocky road due to ancient ruler Mars clashing with Uranus in your 7th on the 1st. A little TLC and attention at the start of the month could head off further trouble down the track. You do have Venus in your 9th angling back at both planets across the 2nd-3rd but just ensure you do take care of business rather than choose escapism instead. The Venus opposition ruler Pluto on the 9th simply means if you choose to ignore any warning signs, you could be looking at things coming to a head around mid month when you yourself start to feel extra sensitive. Especially as you have Mars moving into its ancient ruling 8th from the 20th and a full Moon making an extremely tense angle to Uranus. Emotions may have a direction all their own. More on this shortly.

For this reason, it’s probably not the best time to go looking for love this month. I’m not saying flings can’t be flung – especially when Mars enters its ruling 8th. But we’re heading into retrograde weather too now. Once Uranus turns backwards in your 7th from the 24th all the outer planets are retrograde. Now, throw in Mercury which lands in your 11th on the 4th and enters retro-shade on the 21st. It will also oppose Neptune in your 5th before heading into your 12th on the 26th. That lover may be like no other – in all the wrong ways.

There’s always a peak experience on offer for us in a given area even if others aren’t highlighted for us right now. Don’t forget – the planets are always on the move. The sky changes and we all get our time when an area of our charts lights up. For you it’s your 10th of career, status, rewards and reputation. So, your best outlet and source of satisfaction is to focus your energy here. If you do, you’ll also find that any narks and snarks around your relationship will tend to dissipate as you objectively focus your energy. And feel as if you are achieving something.

Venus’s arrival in your 10th from the enhances your rep and image. You are now set to make your first, best impression. Or even reboot your image or career path if needed. Above all – know what outcome you want to achieve now. Be very specific about this especially as the planets will oppose Saturn in your 4th as they move through this house.

The full Moon in your 4th (the Moon’s ruling house) is known as the Sturgeon, Grain or Lynx Moon. It can see emotions over-riding those intentions if you are not careful. Again, because the full Moon makes a high tensile angle to Uranus in your 7th, this can see your sensitivity increase and you may take things the wrong way when no hurt was intended. Or simply feel overwhelmed by trying to be all things to all people both at home and at work. Trying to do more may not be in your best interests now. Nor anyone else’s for that matter. If you feel fragile and frazzled, a recharge is in order. And please don’t stress that you will fall behind. You will more than make up for it with the recharge that follows.

Best day of the month for doing whatever needs to be done? You’re perfectly grounded plus in your full phoenix power on the 14th when both your rulers form a trine between your 3rd and 7th. This is your best day to deal with any residual angst and turn a situation around or tackle any kind of partnership matter (including work ones). Best day for work, career, professional advancement and reputation enhancing moves is the 18th when Venus trines Jupiter in your 6th. Try to schedule interviews and meetings for this date. Deals can be done and agreements reached on the 22nd when Venus and Ceres form a powerful alliance. Expect win/win outcomes and deals on the table.

The focus is now slowly shifting from all work back to play. But even that play may have work connotations, Scorpio. In other words, social avenues may open up via contacts or those you work with. The 15th however looks to be pure enjoyment especially for anyone in the LGBTQIA+ communities when Mercury and gorgeous Ganymed meet in your 11th. This is a time to connect to and be with your people. And to embrace diversity and identity.

The Sun shines on your social scene from the 23rd. Remember how I said earlier how there is always a peak experience on offer as the planets change signs? Expect an ease of any remaining tensions and you wanting to circulate and socialise now. There’s plenty on the menu for you as the new Moon in here (27th) serves up invitations and also new ways to connect to others via on line groups, apps and technology.

This new Moon sets your social scene for some time to come. So it’s importance should not be underestimated. Because Venus and Ceres remain in your 10th, the new Moon in your 11th continues the professional advancement theme – especially for those of you who are self-employed,, entrepreneurs or work in IT. Expect entree to new networks and circles in the upcoming month. For more on this, see your New Moon in Virgo Moonscope.

Get out ad about now, blow off any residual frustrations left over from the start of the month. You feel things very deeply Scorpio but don’t always let those around you know this. Feel free to share and you’ll immediately rekindle any lost closeness be this with friends or lovers. Above all, share yourself and your smarts this month. And keep this going as we head into September. This is no time to hideaway.

In a nutshell: Both your rulers Mars and Pluto put you in a power position this month. But step back and examine where any frustrations with loved ones may be coming from. Sharing that emotional truth brings you closer.
