Welcome to the monthly horoscope of Cancer for August 2023. This month that might resemble the ocean you adore – dynamic, deep, and, at times, a bit turbulent. Yet, let’s not forget, just as the ocean births pearls in its depths, the challenges you face can create opportunities for personal and professional growth.
The first part of your celestial journey focuses on your professional life. Jupiter’s shift into your tenth house could instigate changes in your job or prompt a location switch to seek better prospects. Simultaneously, Saturn in the eighth house nudges you to be extra attentive to your career and relationships, hinting at a potentially demanding work environment and potential tensions in partnerships. Travels might also see a hiccup with unexpected financial losses, so caution is advised. Health-wise, it’s crucial to focus on maintaining the wellness of your eyes and oral health. Practices like yoga and meditation could help maintain a healthy equilibrium.
But as we often say, after the storm, comes the calm. Despite initial hurdles, the stars align in your favor towards the latter part of the month. Mars’ positive shift in your third house post August 18th holds the promise of familial happiness, improved finances, and potential new career opportunities. Love and personal life may have a bumpy ride due to Venus and Mercury turning retrograde, but your inherent resilience will sail you through these brief disturbances. August, dear Cancer, is a testament to your strength and adaptability. Use it to navigate and shape a path towards newfound opportunities and happiness.
Saturn – the taskmaster of the zodiac, has decided to park itself in your eighth house, a spot it’s not particularly thrilled about. This may put a slight damper on your career dreams. If you’re eyeing up a promotion, you might need to hold onto your crabs just a little bit longer. But hang in there – with your innate resilience and perseverance, you can weather any storm.
Interestingly, Mars – our cosmic warrior, currently residing in your third house, is telling a slightly different tale. As the ruler of your tenth house, its position is suggesting that job changes, even those initially disguised as setbacks, could open up new avenues of progress. So, if you find yourself handing in that resignation letter or welcoming a new job offer, don’t fret. This could be the universe’s way of steering you towards your true calling.
As for you entrepreneurial Cancers, it might be a slower month in terms of business profits. Competition might ruffle your feathers, but remember, every challenge you encounter is a chance to grow stronger and wiser. Sticking to your established business plans would be a wise move this August. While new ventures may seem enticing, the stars suggest that they might not yield the expected returns just yet.
Financially, Saturn’s detour into your eighth house, coupled with Jupiter and Rahu cosying up in your tenth house, could shake things up a bit. Unexpected expenses may pop up like uninvited guests. But fear not, the stars tell us that these are temporary guests, not permanent residents.
Mark your calendars for August 24th, my friends, as Mercury goes into retrograde. While many fear this cosmic event, remember it’s just an invitation to slow down and reflect. It’s not all doom and gloom!
our health could hit a few bumps due to the unwelcome visit of Ketu in your fourth house, causing some discomfort. On top of that, be prepared for possible unexpected medical expenses relating to your dear mother’s health. The universe whispers of potential dental pain and eye irritation, as Saturn extends its icy touch from the eighth to the second house. Moreover, the presence of Saturn in your eighth house may also lead to a tad bit of discomfort in your legs.
However, amidst the hustle, don’t forget to breathe and rejuvenate your soul. A sound mind resides in a sound body. So keep that in mind and practice mindfulness and self-care.
Love & Relationships
For those of you wrapped up in the warm blanket of affection, expect some turbulence. The reason? Saturn, the lord of the seventh house, is holidaying in the eighth house. This situation could make your love life feel like a rollercoaster ride. Yet, despite the bumps, Mars, the lord of romance, occupies the third house, helping you maintain your heartfelt communication with your significant other. This might just be the key to keep the flame burning bright.
For the married Cancerians, Venus— the celestial body of love—will be residing in the first house. A temporary dip in harmony might occur when Venus goes into a state of combustion on August 8th, but hang tight! On August 18th, Venus will rise like a phoenix from the ashes, promising a potential improvement in your love and marital life.
Family & Friends
The constellation warns of possible disturbances and a temporary lack of understanding among family members, primarily due to Saturn’s occupation of the eighth house. The placement of Ketu in your fourth house may cause a slight dip in familial happiness. Ego clashes and communication barriers might arise due to Jupiter’s position in the tenth house.
However, after Venus shakes off its combustion phase on August 18th, harmony should return to your family life. Remember, dear Cancerians, it’s in the darkest times that we find our greatest strength. So keep your chin up, work on communication, and foster love among your family members.
This August, remember that life is a tapestry of light and shade. Be patient and resilient, dear Cancer. As they say, after a storm comes a calm. May you ride out this storm and come out stronger!
