August 2023 Astrology Forecast

As we gear up to embrace the final days of summer and the promise of autumn, the celestial bodies align in ways that stir our collective consciousness, demanding both diplomacy and profound evolution. August 2023 brings a blend of significant astrological events, each contributing to the larger narrative of the year.


On 2 August 2023, at 2:30am (+8 GMT), there will be a Full moon in the sign of Aquarius.

Aquarius is an air sign known for its progressive thinking and innovative spirit. When a Full Moon occurs in Aquarius, it could mean breakthroughs and revelations that may challenge traditional norms and beliefs. This time, it would be a prefect time to take care of things that have been left undone for a period of time, and start setting goals to fulfilling what you have originally intended to start. The themes surrounding this are related to your spiritual practices or growth and intellectual pursuits. You may find that you’re more focused, meticulous, and detail-oriented for this entire week, therefore, it’s good to leverage this time and be thorough with your work. It’s all worth it in the end. And you’ll thank the stars later.


On 7 August 2023, at 12:02pm (+8 GMT), the Moon will form a conjunction with the North Node, a square with Pluto, and the Sun will form a square with Jupiter.

The North Node in astrology represents our karmic path or life’s purpose. A conjunction with the Moon can indicate a time when emotions and intuition align with this life purpose. So, if your gut feeling is telling you to pursue something, pick up the courage to do it.

On a global scale, this can signal a collective shift in emotion or mood that somehow aligns with our collective destiny. This aspect might bring up issues that have to do with our collective emotional well-being. It would not surprise me if we hear emotional news or events that trigger strong emotions that day. The Moon squares Pluto that day and therefore, this could be a challenging but transformative time, leading to collective growth. But these things would not happen without conflicts, upheavals or issues at the forefront creating a shift in the public’s emotional state.

In addition, be careful of where you invest your money as the Sun forms a square with Jupiter, a signal for you to avoid the trap of feeling overconfident and the temptation of excess, typically during this week. Instead, be moderate with your spending. Over-expansion could trigger uncalculated risks and unwanted losses.


On 13 August 2023, at 7:10pm (+8 GMT), the Sun forms a conjunction with Venus retrograde.

The Sun forms a conjunction with Venus retrograde at 20°28’ Leo. This carries specific implications that might impact your relationships, values and self-expression. Retrograde periods are often about reflection and reevaluation, so this could be a period where you are considering what and who you truly value. With the Sun involved, it’s also about how your core identity interacts with the relationships of people around you. There is also a need to reassess how authentic you are in loving or expressing yourself. Regarding business partnerships, your decision will ultimately reflect who you truly are and what you truly value. The key is to find clarity amidst this retrograde, and do not hesitate to test your options. It always helps if you could use this time to be more cautious, by finding out more details before committing yourself to anything.


On 16 August 2023, at 5:38pm (+8 GMT), there will be a New Moon in the sign of Leo.

This New Moon in Leo encourages us to initiate or rejuvenate relationships with courage, authenticity, and creativity. It could be a time to courageously express our feelings in relationships, start creative collaborations, or even breathe new life into existing partnerships. It’s also a great time for setting intentions and starting new projects, especially ones that involve other people or that allow us to express our unique selves. As Venus is still in retrograde, you may want to slow the process down by getting to know the other person better before taking things to another level. This does not only apply to relationships but also business partnerships.

August 2023 Astrology Forecast in Summary


On 23 August 2023, at 4:02am (+8 GMT), Mars forms an opposition with Neptune retrograde at 26°59’, Venus forms a square to Jupiter, and then finally on the same day, at 5:01pm (+8 GMT), the Sun ingresses into the sign of Virgo.

This day seems to hold a blend of confusion, idealism, possible overindulgence, and then a grounding shift towards practicality. While the Mars-Neptune opposition could cause some uncertainty or indecision, the Venus-Jupiter square might push for excess in pleasure or spending. However, the Sun’s shift into Virgo can help bring things back to a more practical, down-to-earth perspective, encouraging you to be more methodical, detailed, and service-oriented.


Mercury is stationing retrograde on 24 August 2023, from 4am (+8 GMT) onwards, and it will go fully retrograde on 25 August 2023, at 4am (+8 GMT).

Mercury retrograde returns and this time, it is in the sign of Virgo. Virgo is known for being meticulous and detail-oriented. During Mercury Retrograde in Virgo, these traits might become more pronounced. There might be a tendency to over-analyze or become overly critical of oneself and others. People might also become more preoccupied with minor details, potentially leading to worry and anxiety. Virgo is also associated with work, service, and health. During this period, there could be a need to review, reassess, and revise work routines, systems, health habits, and daily routines. It can be a good time to rethink productivity strategies and to correct health-related habits.

Mercury retrograde in Virgo might provide an opportunity to revisit, refine, and perfect projects, especially those that involve communication or intellect. It could also be a time when flaws or issues that were previously overlooked come to the surface.With Mercury being the planet of communication and going retrograde, expect potential misunderstandings, miscommunications, or technology glitches. In Virgo, these might be related to work, health, or the details of everyday life.


Mars ingresses into the sign of Libra on 27 August 2023, at 9:20pm (+8 GMT), and at the same time, the Sun opposes Saturn. And three days later, Uranus turns retrograde at 23°4′ Taurus, on 30 August 2023, at 10:39am (+8 GMT).

Things may look like they’re taking off to a new start. However, Mars’ is a detriment in Libra. And so, while your plans may be out on paper, you may find that certain issues need further refining or brainstorming… and that’s never ending. You may have tons of good ideas but you need that drive right now, or the right kind of people to get things done. The Sun opposite Saturn represents tensions between your ego desires and your responsibilities. Although you may know what you have to do, it could be a humbling experience for you, and it would be your call to take up the challenge with humility no matter how disappointed you are with the outcome you’re getting.
