Your Monthly Horoscope for August 2020
Zodiac in Translation: Horoscope

For consultation or more information please find Shari at her website:
Aries Astrological Symbol
Aries or Aries Rising: March 21– April 19
Aries, creatively speaking you are in the zone. With a belly full of inspiration, the only real question this month is how you wish to channel this artistic fire into a thing that makes you feel proud, courageous and bold. Dance with ideas, strum the world’s instrument, paint a self-portrait on canvass stretched from wild experience. Gather your comrades and find freedom in deep and abiding self-expression. Liberating? Yes. Exciting? Absolutely. You are meant to shine .
Taurus Astrological Symbol
Taurus or Taurus Rising: April 20 – May 20
Taurus, when I looked at your astrological weather this month, I had the simple vision of an open window with a fresh breeze blowing through sheer curtains. There was a great deal of stillness. I remembered a line from Anais Nin, famous journal writer, who wrote this: “A leaf fluttered in through the window this morning, as if supported by the rays of the sun, a bird settled on the fire escape, joy in the task of coffee, joy accompanied me as I walked.” May home and a quiet corner find you as you take in the morning sun before the world rushes in.
Gemini Astrological Sy
Gemini or Gemini Rising: May 21 – June 21
Gemini, in reading Rebecca Solnit’s Recollections of My Nonexistence she spoke of her growth as a writer and the evolution of her writing voice. She said that as a young writer she didn’t know how to “speak from the heart.” She said that she was speaking in various voices because she didn’t “know yet which voice was hers.” This is the landscape of your contemplations this month as you feel the desire to authentically speak your mind and express your truest voice. It is your time to shine my friend. Down with the naysayers!
Cancer Astrological Symbol
Cancer or Cancer Rising: June 22 – July 22
Cancer, there is a vase of yellow lily’s blooming like fireworks on my desk. They represent the time of year when nature reaches for the sun, when a mid-summer brightness fills the room and permeates the air with light. You are coming to fruition right now in some way. What do you want to do with this kind of fullness? Who are you responsible for? Where can you share your resources, even your abundance in a way that brings true generosity to yourself and the world? While you contemplate how very rich you are in spite of uncertainty you may feel real growth in the heart space. You are learning to love yourself.
Leo Astrological Sign
Leo or Leo Rising: July 23 – August 22
Leo, if I were to write a tribute to your sign, given that it is your month, I think I would gather all the words I associate with Leo, and give them to you as a birthday list that started with the word joy and waterfalled into words like creative, expressive, playful, humorous, warm-hearted, proud, bright and loving. Your challenge this month is to look at this list and see if any of these words resonate, or if you’d like to embody one or the other more fully. There is something deep inside the Leo heart that is meant to be shared and meant to shine brightly into the world. Let it be so.
Virgo Astrological Symbol
Virgo or Virgo Rising: August 23 – September 22
Virgo, I would be curious to watch your thoughts unfold on any given day. How much of your bandwidth is taken up in looking for improvements, fixing flaws, improving systems and perfecting mechanisms? What would you say if I asked you to circumvent your intellect this month? You may find yourself in a world that may not be easily influenced by intellect or analysis. There will be matters of the heart, deep passion, strong feelings, exciting and maybe even challenging emotions that will arrest your soul and have you asking the heart for advice rather than the head. Stay connected. Let yourself evolve.
libra Astrological Symbol
Libra or Libra Rising: September 23 – October 22
Libra, have you looked for Neowise, the comet in the night sky yet? Yep, there is one out there right now, shining its light in a deep dive just under the Big Dipper. I would say it is one thing to think about a comet, scientifically, and it’s another thing to see it in the sky. There is a beauty when a thing this uncommon is seen, commonly. This is the kind of contemplation you will enjoy this month as your inspiration centers are on fire and ready for action. Reach a little further down inside yourself. A constellation of ideas are poised to move ecstatically across your metaphoric night sky.
Scorpio Astrological Sign
Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: October 23 – November 21
Scorpio, it is not generally your tendency to vie for center stage or even to pull hard on the spotlight. Standing just behind the curtain usually suits you fine. However, my friend, that ole’ spotlight is really calling this month somewhere in the vicinity of your career and vocation. You get to step into the light. You are prepared, you did the work, put in the time and built a true foundation. You can rely on your knowledge and expertise. It is time to share this with others. Even with your shyness it will feel wonderful to be acknowledged.
Sagittarius Astrological Sign
Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: November 22 – December 21
Sagittarius, I was re-reading Joy Harjo’s memoir Crazy Brave recently and was struck by a line from the book and thought of you. She said that “those of fire move about the earth with inspiration and purpose. They are creative and can consume and be consumed by their desires.” I thought of you Sag, because you are one of three Zodiac signs that can claim the element of fire. There are few other signs so wholly attuned to purpose. What does your current life journey feel like? Are you being challenged in essential ways? Do you have daily opportunities to learn and grow? Do you feel free? I challenge you this month to reconnect with your elemental essence and authenticity. Let us know what you feel most passion about.
Capricorn Astrological Symbol
Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: December 22 - January 19
Capricorn, it was only a few nights ago that I was able to see Saturn’s rings through a telescope. Did you know that Saturn was your ruling planet? Saturn comes to teach us about our place in the world, our connection to nature, who and what we are responsible for and where we most need to build boundaries. Coming into a more intimate understanding of your nature will be helpful this month. You are also allowed to bravely ask someone close to you for a deeper commitment. This commitment must fortify your foundation rather than weaken it.
Aquarius Astrological Symbol
Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: January 20 – February 18
Aquarius, perhaps one of my most favorite contemporary authors is Jeanette Winterson. The first book I read of hers was The Passion. Winterson writes about love and the risky prospect that love can bring when we consider how vulnerable it renders us. She says that “being free is not being powerful or rich or well-regarded or without obligations but being able to love.” This is your contemplation this month, not on the cliché of love, but on what it actually means in your day to day life. How do you recognize love in your life? Who sees you for the beautiful and lovely person that you are? Is there a way to be freer by sharing love in a more generous and open manner?.
Pisces Astrological Symbol
Pisces or Pisces Rising: February 19 – March 20
Pisces, I wonder if you’d like the music of Joanna Newsome. She plays the harp and sings in a spindly, quirky voice that stays with you well beyond the ending of each song. It has me thinking of you, beautiful iconoclast who loves music because it is the closest thing you have to a language that communicates your oceanic nature. Music touches your vastness. In Newsome’s song, This Side of the Blue, I imagine you as the color blue, water spirit and with the “kindest heart.” This month, you may go in search of that transcendent feeling that something like music can provide. Stay close to water, read snippets of poetry and by all means, dance.
