Resident astrologer Lorna Blake looks at what's in store for Pisces in August 2012
Horoscope for Pisces August 2012 (Pisces 19 February – 20 March)
If you have been feeling neglected lately and too focused on others, develop your self-assertiveness and find a balance between your autonomy and dependence. Ask for some support and attention around the Full Moon at the end of the month.
Family, Love and Relationships
Venus enters Cancer and your area of love and romance on the 8th. Activities related to love affairs, children and your self-expression will be very positive but your self-discipline may wane due to your desire for fun. Romantic relationships will run smoothly with Mercury turning direct on the same day, however you will experience a period of intense relating between the 12th and 16th when you could enter crucial negotiations around using your energy for a wider purpose than yourself. The drive to transform and establish something is very strong, and you may consider having a baby or working on another type of creative project. Alternatively you could feel pressure and emotional manipulation with regard to values and joint possessions. Either way the aim is to learn to accept another’s values and constructively balance these with your own, which could cause friction until after the 16th.
Between 21st and 23rd daily family routines will be particularly busy. From the 23rd onwards as the Sun enters Virgo and your partnership area, your intimidate one-to-ones will function better and you will enjoy spending more time with your partner. As you become more aware of how you operate within the relationship, mutual support will improve.
Business and Finances
Work and daily routines have been busier than usual the last couple of weeks. A particular project you are working on is due for completion soon, so take some time out at the beginning of the month to reflect on the past few weeks. From the 17th onwards, daily business routines and activities will require renewed focus, analysis and organisation.
Health and Wellbeing
A health matter may crop up, so take time for rest and alone time to recharge your batteries. This may lead you to adopt a new health and/or diet regime on the 17th of the New Moon.
