Aries Career Horoscope: August 2023
This is *not* the month to play it small or safe. This is the month to show up as the brightest, boldest and most untethered version of yourself. To allow for the full expression of your creative urges and dance the dance of life with the forces. Your gift to marry unlikely ideas will prove to be the secret sauce to your success. When it comes to communication, you are being reminded that there is a fine line between being honest and being brutal. So, find a way to speak your truth without hurting others as you hold space for them to share their perspective as well. Your ability to make people feel seen and heard will ensure a greater degree of peace and harmony in the workplace. As for the projects you are currently pouring your energy into? Trust that they will bear fruit a year from today.

Taurus Career Horoscope: August 2023
This is the month to reignite your inner fire, Taurus. To actively pursue the kind of projects that you feel passionate about. To innovate, to become the harbinger of change and to inspire others to realise their highest potential. Word of warning, though: not everybody around you is going to wake up with a spring in their step. Don’t let their complacency or lack of enthusiasm deter you from realising your wildest dreams. By holding the vision of what you are creating in your mind’s eye, you will be able to achieve the impossible at this time. A reminder for those who have been stuck in a toxic work environment: there are other avenues available to you. So, cut the cords wherever necessary and redirect your chariot in the direction of your higher calling. A year from now, you’ll look back at this redirection with tears of gratitude in your eyes.

Gemini Career Horoscope: August 2023
But, what is your USP, Gemini? What do you bring to the table that sets you apart from the others? This is the month to be your own publicist and tastefully toot your own, especially if you are looking for a change on the career front. Your ability to be candid and tell it like it is will help win many hearts. Speaking of change, some of you may feel inspired to break away from the system and pour your energy into a venture of your own. It’s time to spread your wings and fly, beautiful. Trust that you’ll land on your feet no matter what. Twins who’ve been working as a part of a duo will find that their partners are going through a rough patch.

Cancer Career Horoscope: August 2023
There’s something that isn’t working out for you here, and you’ve known it for a while, Cancer. Don’t get complacent about how things are. Start a conversation about the things that matter despite the discomfort this stirs up within. You’re being called to renegotiate the terms and conditions of this partnership. This month, you may also find yourself torn between your need for stability and insatiable desire for freedom. You will have to sacrifice the familiar in order to create space for the life you truly envision for yourself. So, break out of the 9-to-5 rut, if that’s what you feel called to do. Become your own boss and invest in the projects that awaken the song of your soul. Trust that you will settle in a new way of being by February next year, should you take that leap of faith today.

So, throw the rulebook *and* your inhibitions out of the window as you give yourself the permission to explore the endless possibilities of who you can be in this lifetime. Some of you may feel inspired to embrace the nomadic life as well – to work out of cafes and coworking spaces that are based in scenic locations. Others may feel a strong calling to join the travel industry or blog about places that have been on their bucket list since time eternity. Remember if it gives you a reason to wake up with a spring in your step, it means you are on the right track.

Virgo Career Horoscope: August 2023
This is the month to break up with the idea of perfection for good. To focus instead of being the wildest and weirdest version of yourself. To dance the dance of life, to make passionate love to the Muse and fully surrender to the creative process. A brand new version of you is waiting to be born through the madness and the mayhem. But, that doesn’t mean you should throw every rulebook out of the window and fully immerse yourself in the field of the unknown. The key is to find a balance. To recognise the structures that have served you so far and introspect on how where you need to replace rigidity with ‘flow’. Oh, and the only way to measure your success is by gauging how often you’re laughing those full belly laughs, Virgo!

What’s the one thing you’ve always wanted to do but never quite had the chance to? Leo season demands that you show up as the most unhinged version of yourself. That you emerge as the brightest and boldest star both in the galaxy and here in the physical realm. That you shed the baggage of your past, drop your inhibitions to the floor and realise your highest potential. Trust that by fully stepping into your light, you inspire others to do just the same.

To be consistent in your efforts even on the days when you feel like it’s all falling apart. Trust that your heartfulness will transform the quality of your creations and render you with the patience required to navigate the tricky terrain of other people’s emotions. The good news: you will be presented with the opportunity to sync your forces with co-conspirators you feel that creative connection with. Don’t be afraid to make a bold move or approach them with a proposal, Scorpio. You will witness the culmination of the projects you’re working on now within the first quarter of the next year.

Capricorn Career Horoscope: August 2023
Life is a constant and continuous process of unlearning—for those who choose to live with their eyes open. The month ahead isn’t so much about fame, power and external validation as it is about questioning the rules of the matrix and freeing yourself from the outmoded. This may sound counterintuitive, but your self-growth is what will ultimately fuel your professional success. When in doubt, meditate upon these words by Bruce Lee: “Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” Given that we’re in the midst of retrograde season, a lot of what is going to take place will be out of your control. So, remember to stay in a state of flow as you adopt ‘surrender’ as your mantra.
Power crystal: Associated with the element of water, blue kyanite will support you in your journey towards transformation.
Aquarius Career Horoscope: August 2023
Ain’t nobody got time to cry over spilt milk, Aquarius! Acknowledge what hasn’t worked out, pick up the pieces and prepare to move on. The full moon in your sign (which is coming up on the 13th) demands that you show up as the boldest, brightest and most unhinged version of yourself. That you revisit your vision board and actively work towards the goals you have already set for yourself. With luck on your side, the impossible is possible, water bearer. A reminder for those who’ve been stuck in a toxic work environment: there is something better out there for you. Lay your trust back in yourself, spread the word about what you’re looking for and approach potential employers/companies armed with confidence. Trust the signs that you are receiving from the Universe as an answer to your questions.
Power crystal: Green jade is known to support growth, expansion and new beginnings.
Pisces Career Horoscope: August 2023
What if we said that life has no in-built meaning? That it is the meaning and value that we assign to people, places and incidents that weaves the story of our life? What the Universe is providing you this month is a blank canvas, Pisces. A blank canvas to paint with the brightest and boldest colours in your palette. So, adopt a no holds barred policy with your creative urges. At the same time, tap into the power of the collective. Reach out to your co-conspirators. Syncing your forces with those you feel a creative chemistry with will help inspire change in more ways than you can imagine. What you don’t want to: shy away from speaking your truth for the fear of how you will be perceived. Communicating with clarity is the secret to having your needs met.
