Welcome to August, pretty Pisces. At the end of July, you were wondering who in your friend group was on the same page as you when it came to fighting systemic racism, and hopefully, you’ve found a bit more clarity. You’re a peaceful sign, and you hate confrontation. As the last sign of the zodiac, it’s said you inherit the wisdom from all those who come before you, and you usually find a way to address issues without things getting too sticky. That’s why we need your communication skills so much right now.
Even when you know you’re working hard, whether it’s caring for a family member, attending Black Lives Matter protests, or making masks, you often worry it’s not enough. However, during the full moon in humanitarian Aquarius on Monday, August 3, you’ll start to see the fruits of your labor. While sometimes that might mean accomplishing an actual milestone, like reaching a fundraising goal, it also may include some sort of internal shift. You may be able to meditate without getting distracted or find it easier not to guilt-trip yourself when you say no to plans because you’ve been stretching yourself too thin. Enjoy the win.
Your attention turns to your love life when eccentric Uranus goes retrograde from Saturday, August 15, to Friday, January 1 of next year. Due to the pandemic, dating is different. Single people worry about safely meeting up, and many partnered folks are feeling the strain of being cooped up together for so long. Believe it or not, things are changing for the better, Pisces. Some people actually prefer dating right now; all you have to do is adapt and have conversations about COVID-19 safety precautions. If you’re in a relationship and annoyed with your partner, try to learn to let things go. Being flexible during Uranus retrograde will help you reap great rewards down the line.
During the new moon in bold Leo on Tuesday, August 18, you may find it easier to set goals for yourself. It’s likely that huge areas of your life have been affected by COVID-19, and this is not your fault. Now, Uranus retrograde is here to help expand your mind and bring some inspiration back into your life. The changing of the seasons is a great time to explore a new interest if you have the time.
