Let us first see the positions of the planets in the sky in August. All dates are as per Indian Standard Time.
Slow moving planets are in the same status and placed in the same signs as in July; i.e. Jupiter and Saturn are retrograde are in Aquarius and Capricorn respectively. Rahu and Ketu are in Taurus and Scorpio.
In the first half of the month Sun remains in Cancer and is in weak state. Sun is in opposition with a super powerful Saturn since July and forms the exact opposition on 2nd August. The first week of the month will be unsettling and stressful for all of us in some aspects of our lives or the other. As I mentioned in my July forecast, this is also not a great time for the people in power and authorities. Sun then moves to his own sign Leo on 17th August and gains full strength and also gets Jupiter’s aspect. This indicates restoration of power and authority. However, with retrograde Jupiter, the best of the advice may not come to the people in authority.
Mars remains in Leo for the entire August. From 17 August onward Mars will get combust. Mars in Leo is a very strong placement for Mars, but combustion lower’s Mars’ strength. The good part is here Mars is also getting Jupiter’s aspect.
Mercury is in Cancer, will move to Leo on 9th August and then to Virgo on 26th August. Leo is a friendly sign and Virgo is the sign of Mercury’s exaltation. On 16 August Mercury will come out of the combustion. Mercury coming out of combustion and being exalted is good news for business, trade and stock market.
Venus remains in Leo till 11 August and on 11th he moves to his debilitation sign, Virgo. Both the placements are not good for Venus. For quite some time Venus has been closely moving with Mars from sign to sign, on 11th Venus will separate from Mars, which is a relief in itself. Debilitation of Venus will indicate relationship troubles or insecurities in relationships for many. It can also increase the cravings for materialistic assets, comfort and luxury. Things will improve a bit when Mercury comes to Virgo by end of the month creating Neech Bhanga or cancellation of debilitation.
In August the sign Leo is highly active. Sun, Mars, Mercury, Venus all will come to Leo and all of them will also get aspect from Jupiter. Except for Venus, all other planets are strong at least during some part of the month and this is happening after a long time.

There will be progress in profession in the second half. You will overcome all competition and obstructions. Recognition of work will also be there. Last seven days of August is particularly good in profession and finance matters. Saturn is providing wonderful support to you if you are an entrepreneur. However, there may be some delays in materialising the plans. Try to maintain cordiality with the close relations, particularly with your father in the first couple of weeks of the month. Your relation with the spouse will be pleasant. You should take care of your health in August. Do not ignore any troubles related to chest, throat or spine. Be careful about injuries too.
Sagittarius moon sign:
Your sign lord Jupiter is retrograde and placed in your house of self-effort, new initiatives, siblings and hard work. You are at the final phase of your Sadesati, therefore some troubles are still there but at the same time new hopes are also there. In August planets in the sky are indicating some obstructions and less positivity for you. The first thing that draws attention is you should be careful of injuries this month. On the positive side there will be happiness from arrival of a new family member if it applies to you. There can be sudden gain of money as well. You need to work harder to achieve success in profession, and you are likely to apply your wits and wisdom to overcome the hurdles. The mid part of the month can bring tension related to work and finances. You also need to keep cordiality with relatives and spouse. It will be a good idea to curb expenses and spend wisely. You are likely to take part in some spiritual or virtuous activity in August and this is going to give you a lot of mental peace.
Capricorn moon sign:
Your moon sign lord Saturn is transiting though your sign and is retrograde. You are going through peak of sadesati. August is not a great month Capricorn moon signs. The saving grace is good transit of Jupiter which is going to give positivity in terms of wealth and gains. However, since Jupiter is retrograde, expect some delay as well. Professional and health worries are the two most important factors for you this month. Be careful of injuries and accidents too. Mental anxiety can affect your health too. It is also very important to maintain good relation with your spouse and keep peace in marital life. Try to maintain a cordial relation with all in the workplace. Some positivity in money matters and career front can be seen in the middle two weeks of the month. Try to cut down on expenditure. There are indications of gain of property. If you are thinking of buying a property I suggest, wait for a slightly better time because Venus in your 8th house has Vedha, will also be debilitated for most of the month and other planets are not really supporting you. There is a possibility of a happy journey with the family and friends.
Aquarius moon sign:
Your sign lord Saturn is retrograde in your house of expenditure, spirituality and foreign connections. You are going through the first phase of sadesati. Retrograde Jupiter is placed in your sign.
Your health remains good in the first half of the month, though the first few days may not be that great. There may be stomach related issues or trouble in the reproductive system. At work you will overcome all obstacles and there will be good flow of money for you. At the same time sudden expenses will also be there. The second half throws more challenges related to the profession. Try to avoid conflict with the spouse and business partners. Emotionally you will be quite vulnerable. Some happiness is seen in the last few days of the month. Be careful of argument or differences with the female members of the family. Property matters will be active this month; you may also buy a property or some expenditure will happen on property. This month think twice before you take any decisions. Some kind of recognition from the authorities or the government is possible. Spiritually this is a good month.
Pisces moon signs:
Your sign lord Jupiter is retrograde and is transiting through your house of expenditure, foreign travel and spirituality. Planets in August may throw some challenges your way. Expenses and health worries may bother you. Mental stress, professional worry can be there in the first half of the month. Financial gains and losses both are foreseen. There may be delays or interruptions in income due to Saturn’s retrogression. The second half looks slightly better though. Job prospects look good. You will overcome competition and opposition at work. Health will also improve. You need to be very cautious about your relation with your spouse this entire month. Saturn and Rahu are providing good support to you. You will win in competitions. With hard work you will succeed in your profession. Therefore I would call this month a mixed bag for Pisces moon signs.
