August 2012 Monthly Horoscope for Scorpio
Overview: Both Mercury and Uranus (quite powerful planets) continue with their retrograde activity and even though the first one becomes direct again on the 8th, things will have a tendency to be quite slow, calm and still. After this day, the tension and the stress will likely lessen a little, but this doesn't mean you need to bring your intensity back to those original levels. Your professional life will have a positive boost, especially because you will be able to deal with authority figures in a satisfactory manner. Keep an eye out for your anxiety levels and try to control them, even if they will probably become self-contained after the 23rd (Sun enters Virgo), since you will be drawn to spend some time relaxing and resting. On the 24th, Mars moves into your sign, which means that energy levels are restored and in comes the intensity so natural to your sign. Use this influence from Mars wisely!
Career and Work: The career division is positively influenced by the presence of Mars, but you can be more impatient, more restless and more demanding on the workplace. However, relationships with people of authority are probably highlighted and will turn out to be quite positive. Enjoy the extra dose of dynamism and make sure you bring your agenda forward in the workplace.
Finances and Money: The most important enemy to take into account regarding this area of your life is rashness and decisions made on impulse. Mars is usually quite savvy as far as money and investment goes, but since this planet will make you feel quite impulsive, you need to make sure you keep these urges under control. In partnerships and associations, you will tend to be more argumentative and antagonistic, even if instinctively, and this will likely provoke aggressive responses in others.
Love and Relationships: Your love planet makes a major change, travelling into your 9th house on August 8th. She has been stationed in your 8th house since April 3rd, so this is a most important move. There will be a shift in love attitudes. Over the last couples of months, your romantic relationships have been quite focused on the physical aspects, on the sexual side of things, but as of now, emotions and feelings begin to occupy the correct place sexual. With your family, your relationship will be quite healthy and even supportive, so enjoy this period, but remember to control your rashness!
Health: It's a pity that these awesome planetary vibes can't be extended to your health, which will likely be kind of dodgy during August 2012. You are likely to be suffering from very low energy levels and some anxiety. If you can, spend time with your loved ones, since this could prove to be the best therapy. After the 23rd, you will feel like you're on top of the world!
