Your August Horoscope Is Here, and It's Full of Surprises

With a degree in neuroscience and art history from UCLA, Rose Theodora is an expert when it comes to color therapy and astrology. Each month, she'll be sharing astrological insights for your sign, as well as the beauty products you should be using—consider these your personal beauty horoscopes.




AUGUST || Overview. Streamline a more direct approach to glowing skin with your beauty routine.

August 7. Uranus retrograde until January 6, 2019. Uranus, newly in Taurus, takes a break. Be yourself; express your uniqueness without disrupting others. Giving everyone room to be themselves yields the most reassuring results.

August 11. New moon, solar eclipse in Leo. Take a beat and focus on yourself rather projecting the intensity you feel unto another. This eclipse paired with Mercury Retrograde, Pluto, and some prevalent asteroids brings up negative thought patterns and control dynamics. Remember that eclipses are about realignment, and this one is a potent new moon (new beginning), so be aware of what you're indulging in, as it signifies a new and long-term start.

August 19. Mercury direct in Leo. You'll be ready to move forward with greater mental clarity and creative outlooks.

August 26. Total full moon in Pisces. Develop latent skills that have otherwise been dormant and caused you pain. Stay motivated, successful, connected. Start with your intuitive, creative abilities and lead from there.

August 27. Mars direct in Aquarius. You'll be assertively ready to act on your desires.
