August 2012 Monthly Horoscope for Cancer
Overview: As the Sun moved away from your sign and entered Leo (and later Virgo) and the retrograde activity of the planets will continue one, the world around you might seem like a strange place. The aforementioned influences won't affect you directly, but they will certainly affect the way the world is perceived by you and how others seem to behave. Slow down, because this is the best advice right now. Delays will pop out of nowhere and you will need to make time to make important decisions and, if you want to move forward, be sure to study all aspects. After the 23rd, as the Sun enters the sign of Virgo, your energy levels will likely be restored and you will be able to focused a lot better on your work and your domestic life. Be wary about Neptune's influence, though, since some confusion and deception is likely to come knocking on your door.

This means that your charisma will be on a great level; on the other hand, your relationship with your coworkers may not be the best possible one. It is definitely not the time to push for a promotion; also, you are currently looking for a job, you should be careful during your job interviews to make sure you don't aggravate anyone. As the Sun enters the practical sign of Virgo, things are likely to pick up and you will feel inclined to spend more time in your workplace.
