August 2018: The sun squares your ruler Jupiter on August 6, which is both a positive and a negative. You’ll feel like you can conquer the world, but that very confidence could cause you to fail. Try not to waste any energy on what-ifs. You either will or you won’t - there’s very little in-between.

A Venus-Saturn retrograde square on the ninth could add stress to relationships, so while you push to spend time with the person you love or are interested in, it would probably be more productive to spend some time apart. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and it keeps you from the drama that physical closeness can create.

A gentle Jupiter-Neptune retrograde trine on August 19 makes it virtually impossible for you to ignore someone in need, but when is it enough? Giving too much of yourself can lead to martyrdom, which kind of defeats the purpose of helping in the first place. Strive for balance between giving and taking.

Mercury (direct on the nineteenth - whew!) forms a square to lucky Jupiter on August 28, creating some very high hopes for the future. But don’t focus so much on what’s to come that you miss out on what’s right in front of you.
