For the representative of a fixed cross of the water trine, which the modern classical astrology knows as Scorpios, August of 2016 will be a rapid and bright time, although the dynamic of this cycle will be inferior to many previous ones. However, right now Mars, your planet-ruler, will be on your side, which, in general, is natural, but knowing the fickle nature of the stars, you can openly breathe a sigh of relief. The stellar warrior will be accompanied by the younger sister of the lord of the vault of heaven, the Moon. Despite the fact that the Moon is usually responsible for the "fall" of Scorpios, in August it will become "the heavenly leader" of the whole water trine, so a change of heart regarding her "favorites" will be fair enough. At the same time, Saturn, the exaltation planet of Scorpios, will not be especially powerful, yet it will serve as a "bonus", especially in view of the fact that Venus, responsible for the "expulsion" of this zodiac sign, will get an extra boost. In general, we're talking about a time period which will be filled with a wide variety of events, spectacular and largely unpredictable, but, as has been already been mentioned, not the most exceptional ones (which was typical of the onset and the dawn of the summer season).
In the working direction Scorpios in August of 2016 will have to face their worst fears. True, it sounds like a plot for another Hollywood horror movie, but in reality everything will be far from the "walking dead." If you were frankly afraid of losing your job, then you'll definitely lose it, or you'll be so close to it that any hope for a positive outcome will leave you. However, all this will be surrounded by irrepressible positivity, even on your part. The result will surprise not only you, but also your inner circle. The most obvious option is that you will almost immediately find a job that will be much better than your previous one in all respects. In any case, it makes no sense to stress yourself with a reason and without. Now you'll need to act as consistently and purposefully as possible. That is, you should do what you think fit, despite the fact that your colleagues, partners, and even leadership will be against. Of course, in this regard it will be a little easier for those who hold management positions (like in "Judge Dredd": "Mom is not the law, the law is me!"). But this doesn't imply that you must be blind to what is happening. And confidence based on a number of compelling reasons is radically different from groundless fanaticism and stubbornness, which is founded on prejudice or outright erroneous assumptions. As usual, not everything is simple as it might seem at first glance.
Regarding the scope of your senses and emotions, in August of 2016 Scorpios need to focus on the following points. Firstly, don't go against your "significant other", even if you're absolutely sure that they are wrong. You can express your opinion, and let them get some bumps and bruises, so that in the future they give more credit and value to your words. As far as any disputes are concerned, now they are unlikely to end in success, so it's better not to develop any conflicts. As some Christian sects say: tolerance instead of abstinence! Of course, everything is relative and more importantly, individual, so again, do not go to extremes. Another point worthy of your attention lies in the fact that you need to clearly define your life milestones. And it is desirable to do so in the first days of the month. Otherwise, you're likely to go through a lot of "headaches" until the fall, without really knowing what you want.
