Horoscope August 2017 Sun Sign Astrology

by Astrologer PRAMA CHOPRA

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You are running for perfection as far as your home matters are concerned. You may be finalising a next level theme for decor. It seems your preparation is in well in advance for coming October and November months usually when these activities are heightened in our part of world. After August you might not find time to focus on your domestic issues which you were devoting for last four months. Why I emphasised on this domestic wellness as it seems it plays a catalyst to improve your love life. You have an excellent love relationship period. Passion waves are very strong. The phase is more of than an emotional gliding for many of you as Sun and Mars visiting fifth house of your horoscope. This transition will be followed by an equally strong emotional cycle of you love life next month.

Quick opportunity from jobs front may crop up which you may not want to miss. Now you should firmly stand on your professional ground. A habit of maintaining what you have created should be in place ASAP. And brace yourself for different lessons in the years to come.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Home and health these two areas will require your full attention. This could be one reason why you are glued to your home, may be because of comfort and sense of security it gives to you. And also for the reason you might not be seeing this phase a good time to face outside world’s challenges. If you are working for a social cause or communication largely to address to a wider section of society, the time is good to make an emotional appeal to give effective direction to your project. As far as situation or issues in which only you are the subject, things will be under control. But when the other people or entity comes to picture, results of those issues may vary. Money issues may linger on for those cases where other entity is involved, like Bank loan EMIs, inheritance, litigation matters etc. There are strong possibilities that you will finalise your vehicle purchase plans this August. Study related issues will go very well.

Lucky Colour Scarlet

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Family ties are on terra firma. You are blessed with versatility of communication and you can move any discussion towards a desired direction with this skill. A soft approach during putting your point across will turn a better strategy. Orators will leave their audiences spell bound. Past is past; a brand new place for home or new beginnings are indicated in reference to domestic front. This will be certainly cleaner and fresh. You have perfect conditions to enjoy your personal life. Those who are sensitive should be able to feel vibrant aura and delight around. You should preserve your ideas and creative thoughts felt during this transition so that you can give a larger shape to this later if not now.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

When you think of something good coming your way, partner is the keyword for the month. Life is moving in a segmented way. Some are good and some are not so good. Work life is fine.
