The final summer month of 2018 will be filled with fateful events. Her Majesty Fate will send a lot of signs to warn us of something or to push us toward something. August can turn out to be crucial in terms of possibilities and potential changes for practically every zodiac sign. But, nobody should attempt to manipulate the circumstances purposefully; everything should happen as absolutely naturally and harmoniously as possible, otherwise you can get results that are 180 degrees opposite the original expectations. In general, at this time most of the solar system's celestial objects will be on our side. This means that you don't need to rush when making important decisions; in almost all cases (apart from some individual exceptions), time will be on our side. Thanks to the exceptionally successful positions of the Sun, Mercury and Venus, it is possible to succeed in all areas of your life. Of course, you will have to work hard in order to obtain this success, although many actions now require much less effort than at any other time with all the other things being equal. That is why, if there is at least a minimum probability of success, you must go for it, and no excuses are allowed here. In general, at this stage it is worth paying careful attention when approaching any issue by examining it from many sides. In other words, we should prioritize dialectics over metaphysics. This statement is not about philosophy; it is about the fact that now any event will have several precursors, which can lead to some very different outcomes. He who can take into account all of those possibilities can guarantee himself a total success.
However, with the stage being very favorable in general, not all zodiacal signs will have heavenly leaders or additional heavenly patrons, whose influence would be very helpful under certain circumstances. The signs of Water element (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) as well as the signs of Fire element (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) will remain with their standard assistants. It does not mean that this period will be more difficult for them than for other signs, or that their prospects will be less optimistic. It means that at certain moments Fire or Water element representatives will have to exercise self-control, or make a bet on willpower, as their professionalism on its own may not be enough. Signs of the Earth element (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) can count on help from the Moon, whose influence in the usual alignment can be ambiguous. Nevertheless, the younger sister of the Sun will help the signs of the Earth to achieve their desired goals towards the end of the summer. The signs of Air element (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) will be supported by Pluto, whose support is quite surprising but still extremely positive. Do not assume that nothing at all will be required from you, but most will feel real support right from the very first day of the month. On the other hand, the stars warn you to be beware of your own desires. Although this phrase might sound a little cliche, now it is really worth listening to this advice.
In terms of negative trends (including potential ones) August 2018 will be basically a static period. The problems that took place in the previous month and did not get resolved will remain relevant for the majority of us. This is the perfect time to say something like "there is no one to blame except for myself". At the same time, the position of Eris and Mars will not always be neutral. In certain periods, this tandem can cause a lot of problems, and you need to listen carefully to your inner voice in order to avoid any complications. In addition, signs of fate will constantly pursue us. It is not necessary for you to be psychic or esoteric to notice something mysterious in the world around us, something not fully comporting with common sense or scientific reasoning. It is just enough to open yourself to all the things happening around you. In addition, it is unlikely that now anyone will try to derail your plans. We will have to blame either ourselves (our shortsightedness and professional negligence) or some "force of nature" in most negative situations. In case of the second scenario happening, everyone around will understand the outcome is something that you have no control over. It is noteworthy that, in general, this is a good time for career growth and development of personal relationships.
