#TheresNoPlaceLikeHomeYour all-consuming quest for adventure and expanded horizons has taken you down a path paved with anything but yellow bricks. Roadblocks, flakey friends and non-stop anxiety have been your ever-present travel companions for several years now. August is the perfect time to take a time out from non-stop searching and get back to your roots. If you focus your energy on home, family and establishing firm foundations, you will go further in your personal development than a million miles of well-trodden highway.
#HitThatLikeButtonThis is an excellent month for networking and expanding your circle of friends and acquaintances. Whether online or in real life, your communication skills are off the charts. If you ever dreamed of being an influencer or running your own business, the New Moon on the 18th would be the perfect day to launch operations, as well as seek new clients or sponsors. It may be better to fly solo, because starting an entrepreneurial endeavor with a friend may only cause endless fights over money and direction that could ruin the project, as well as your relationship.

#FinancialFreedomWhile you may be a slave to love in your domestic life, you are breaking free of all restrictions as you zoom up the ladder of professional and financial success at the office. By securing your financial freedom, you will also be able to gain some power and control when it comes to your love life. August offers many opportunities to boost your earnings, allowing you to build a nest egg so you can move out into your own place, if need be. Instead of lounging in the sunshine, use your spare time to network and look for new job opportunities.
#BreakFreeTo say you have been consumed by your career for the past several years would be an understatement. August's warm, sunny skies are beckoning you away from screens and duties to reconnect with life's greater passions. Use the first three weeks of the month to get out, explore and take in new things. It will help rejuvenate you and your ambitions. By month's end, you will be filled with exciting new entrepreneurial visions that will add a boost to your income.
#InvestInYourselfWhen a Virgo truly loves someone, they have the tendency to put their needs above their own to the point of self-obliteration. Instead of bending over backwards to meet the unending demands of a me-first love partner, August is forcing you to take a time out to invest time, energy and resources into your own dreams and desires. This is the perfect period to get back in touch with long-forgotten goals and work at making them a reality. Use your money to build the meaningful, stable future you desire, instead of squandering it so your sweetie can go chasing waterfalls.

#GetOutIf you have been spending months cooped up due to coronavirus fears or familial duties, it is time to lift your gaze beyond the confines of your homestead's four walls. The haunting, inescapable demands of relatives and domestic chores may have transformed your once-sunny abode into a nightmarish realm worthy of the creepiest horror movie. Open the shades and get out into the real world. Spending enjoyable moments socializing will also renew the passionate spark in your relationship. If single, you could meet The One through friends.

#CallOfDutyYou may be feeling so overwhelmed and stressed with chores, work tasks and caregiving duties, you may be having a hard time keeping your emotions in check. You could go from screaming at those around you to crying jags to cold shoulders within mere minutes, which will only push away those who would otherwise lend a helping hand. Luckily, Mars will give you an added dose of vitality and energy so you can tackle everything — leading to accolades from higher ups by the end of the month.

#CantBuyLoveNo matter how much moolah you throw at diva love interests or spoiled, petulant children, it will never be enough. You may try all the tactics possible in a vein attempt to get them in line — from lavishing them with pressies to turning off the money taps as a form of financial tough love. Truth is, it's not really money they're after, but your attention and time. Spend quality moments out and about exploring the world. Join a class together or go on a spontaneous trip. It's not the price tag that matters, but the sense of fun and togetherness.

#FireSaleTempers will be raging around the homestead, and no matter how hard you try to put out any flare ups, you will not be able to fully extinguish the rage and rancor surrounding you. Instead of wasting your time and effort, it may be better to let it all burn to the ground, so you can rebuild from the ashes. Leave the confines of your sweltering indoor inferno to get out and about as much as you can. Taking a vacation or weekend getaway will do much to recharge your batteries. Likewise, enrolling in a class could widen your horizons, leading to a personal renaissance.

#ShoutLetItAllOutIt's is time to get it all off your chest. When it comes to declarations of love, you will want to scream your passions from the rooftops. The more ardent and heartfelt the better! Your sweetie can be swept off their feet — and into your arms — during the last ten days of the month. If you want to ask them to marry you or move in together, this would be an excellent time. The first two-thirds of the month, however, will be fraught with psychological tensions, causing you to lash out in passive aggressive anger at those around you. Seek counseling instead, so you can get to the root of your issues.

#JumpingThroughHoopsWhen your friends say "Jump," you need to start asking, "Yes, but how much will it all cost?" If your summer social schedule is centered around impressing all the "right" people, you will find your entrée into the haute bourgeoisie comes with a hefty price tag. You could find yourself burning through your earnings trying to impress people who will always have a one up on you and don't even really like you — if they think about you at all. The only way to truly become part of the establishment is by establishing yourself through hard work. If you set your sites on moving up the ladder instead of social climbing, you could boost your income, rather than frittering it away.
