Wow, Cancer, JUST WOW. August is bananas on all fronts, but if anyone can use this astro-insanity for self-improvement, it's you. Eclipse season returns for the second time this year, reflecting back to last February. Since the Moon is your ruler, eclipses are always a major deal for you, so pay close attention to all feelings that come up and all events that transpire – the stars are whispering important, transformative messages in your ear. The first eclipse arrives on the 7th in the form of a Full Moon. This Lunar Eclipse will bring up all the feelings you knew you were capable of having, then it'll bring up some that you didn't even know were lurking inside of you. In other words, this is a major mood-fest, Cancer – prepare for intense swings. Something or someone that came into your life last winter is on your mind again. Then all of a sudden BOOM – Mercury goes retrograde right in between the two eclipses (on the 12th). If you thought it was challenging to express yourself before, this phase will force you to slow down and reconsider all your words – spoken, written, and emoji'd. It's SUPER important to take a breath before you say the wrong thing, and this will remain in effect for the rest of the month. It's best to keep your lips zipped and not take anything personally from friends, family and colleagues – everything is up for misinterpretation. Finally, the cosmic icing on the crazy cake of August comes on the 21st when a New Moon/Solar Eclipse lands in your money zone. This calls for a radical reorganizing of the way you deal with your finances. You may suddenly come into a lot of cash, but it's extremely important to consider how and why you got it – and what you'll spend it on or save it for. On the other hand, you might realize that if you don't align your work with your values, you won't be able to continue at your job. Success and emotional security are one of the same for you, especially right now.

Your birthday month is overflowing with Cancerian delights, Ms. Moonchild. With the Sun and Mars both in your sign for the first half of the month, you're able to marshal all your considerable resources to make your celebration as gorgeous as possible – with room to maneuver though your many moods. The first weekend of the month might be a bit challenging so feel free to hide out in your sanctuary if you want to. With Pluto and Mars in opposition, your relationship zone is ignited and you'll want to avoid rows with your partner (or even your ex) at all costs. Just don't go there, Caner – you won't like it one bit. The Full Moon comes to your partnership zone early on the morning on the 9th, intensifying your relationships yet again – but in a way that you can plan for and work with. An issue that first began brewing about six months ago could bubble up again, but you've got wisdom to draw on now – and it might just make your partnership even stronger. Mars leaves your sign on the 20th, bringing loads of passion to your financial zone for the next six weeks. If you want to attract cash, the stars want to help you with that endeavor, with gusto. Not only that, but the Sun joins Mars on the 22nd, only to be followed by the New Moon the next day. Are you seeing the theme that's emerging? Grab the brass ring and don't be surprised if it's set with a sprinkling of exquisite, shiny diamonds – the stars will insure that you can afford them.
