Hello Astro Family, 

The astrology for August is wild, so you’re going to want to buckle up for this month! 

Have you felt more confident this week? Do you find yourself wanting to be more social and outdoors?

There is a reason for that! As we start the month, Mercury (the planet of communication, intelligence, and being social) will be joining the Sun in Leo. 

In the zodiac, Leo represents fiery, masculine energy. At its best, Leo energy is confident, self-sufficient, stable, and charismatic.

With Mercury going into Leo, you may find yourself speaking with more confidence, feeling independent, and being creative. 

During this period of exciting, positive inspiration, you may also feel frustrated with situations or people that are stalling your progress.

July’s intense energies may have awakened you to the importance of positive thinking and gratitude. However, family and friends could be struggling to keep up with or understand your new, healthy mindset. 

Or perhaps you purchased a trip to a foreign country you’ve always wanted to visit, but had your plans canceled due to an unexpected conflict or sudden restrictions on travel. 

Basically, your heart, soul, and mind are ready to take action on improving your life, but the Universe has some other matters for you to deal with first!

Let’s take a deeper look at everything you have to look forward to astrologically throughout the entire month of August.


Is there a pattern, belief, or persistent thought that is adding more chaos to your life? Is there a toxic relationship or situation in your life that you haven’t had the strength to deal with?

During the second week of August, you will have the opportunity to let go of mental patterns or individuals getting in the way of your personal growth and self-mastery. 

You may think that you can’t go back to school because you don’t have the money or the time. But consider letting go of this thought and replacing it with the possibility of attending an online program or finding and applying for scholarships. 

Or there might be someone in your life who continues to talk poorly about you or to you. Speak up! Your voice is a powerful weapon. 

Let that person know how their words make you feel and that you won’t tolerate it anymore. Setting boundaries is very healthy and good for you!

The heart-centered and courageous influence of Leo is here to help you move forward with confidence!


Starting from August 15th until the full moon on August 22nd, five planets will be in the signs they rule. This does not happen very often in astrology. 

In fact, if you know of any babies born during this very powerful week, consider yourself lucky! Those souls are very special and will have very impactful, influential lives. 

During this week, you may find that you are really being heard by others when you speak, due to a boost in your confidence and appearance. 

You could also attract more attention from strangers and find yourself starting conversations with people you normally wouldn’t have the courage to speak to. 

The coming transits are happening in divine timing; and this special week in mid-August will give you a chance to make meaningful progress around attracting more love, money, and friends into your life!

So, what will you be manifesting during this week in August? What blessings will you be asking the Universe to bring you?

Think boldly! Be brave! This is the week to believe in yourself and go after your dreams.


Do you believe in Archangels? Did you know there are four fixed stars in astrology that are connected to Archangels? 

The full moon will be on Sunday, August 22nd. It will be in the sign of Aquarius again, but at the end of the sign, which will strengthen the energies of Saturn (patience, endurance, limitation, and responsibility).  

This is a very powerful full moon and you’ll have an opportunity to read about it in a few weeks.

What you need to know now, though, is that the energies are going to shift very quickly on the day of the full moon. Uranus, a planet of sudden changes, inventiveness, and originality, is going to stop and turn retrograde.  

Remember, when a planet is retrograde the energy goes inward toward the self, or a repeated pattern arises; giving you an opportunity to review past decisions and improve an area of your life. 

Another important planet showing up during the month of August is Jupiter. It will be back in Aquarius on Wednesday July 28th, and will be joining the moon when it is full on August 22nd. It’s possible during this time that parts of the world and the United States could experience the return of restrictions related to Covid (mandatory mask mandates and limited public gatherings). 

Something positive will be happening at the time of the full moon, though! The Sun will be on a very powerful fixed star named Regulus. 

This star is associated with Archangel Raphael, who is considered the physician of the angels, helps with healing, traveling safely, and finding a healthy romantic partner. 

So, if you are feeling sad or discouraged from releasing a belief or relationship earlier in the month, Archangel Raphael will be there to support you! 

Don’t forget that sometimes angels show up in human form! A friend or family member could surprise you with flowers, invite you out for some fun, or say just the right thing during a conversation. 

Although you may experience some frustrating and repetitive energies around the time of the full moon and as we finish up the month, there will be divine protection looking over you as you walk your path.


During the last week of August, the Sun, Mars, and Mercury will be in the sign of Virgo. This zodiac sign is about patience, practicality, organization, and intelligence. 

With Mars in Virgo you may feel excess energy and nervousness that can be released through exercise, doing an artistic activity, playing with pets at home, or practicing a hobby you enjoy. 

Mercury will leave Virgo on August 29th or 30th, depending on where you are in the world, and this could help you feel less anxious and more focused on improving your personal relationships. 

During this time, you may experience someone sharing how they truly feel about you (positive or negative) or have someone propose to you! Wow!

As August ends, be ready for changes that are going to push you to live your best life! This means healthier relationships, a sincere effort to become more self-sufficient and confident, and releasing habits and thoughts that no longer serve you.


In review, the month of August has a little bit of everything! As you begin the month you could feel a surge of confidence that is followed by needing to let go of a habit, pattern, or person that is interfering with your personal progress.

From the 15th to the 22nd, you’ll have a wonderful opportunity to manifest something creative into your life. Once the full moon occurs, though, the Universe will be asking you to have patience with other people until the end of the month. 

So, hang on and be sure to stay positive!

“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.” – Viktor Frankl

With Much Love & Gratitude, 

Heidi Campbell

    REUNION in my own realestate. I’ve learned and retained and forgotten rei reo wholesaling realestate. I’m going back into the software that went into void 2 yrs ago.
    I’m trying to re educate and start again in August for rest of year into next year. Stay excited: don’t let motivation dwindle and fade as was 2 yrs ago

    I’m Australian. I wrote my first sci fi novel in five years. Astrology and Science go together in this story: THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME.. It is set in the 32nd century. I don’t mean to use your blog to advertise. The book is a landmark creation with a message to tell anyone who has Asperger’s Syndrome that their life purpose will shine The manuscript was headhunted by several book agents in US. and is about to be split into two books (paperback) and solo hardcover. I have also been told Hollywood (film scripted) wants to make a movie or a series. I have made an author /synopsis video coming out on You Tube soon. I am completely broke but hoping for Abundance this month.

    I am trying to settle my mother’s estate. My sister has stolen monies and the bank is “slow” releasing records. They are being very uncooperative. I’d love to get this part settled so we can move on to the other problems. I feel like I have been thrown into the fire pits and am having to wait to get things straightened out. This weighs on me daily to the point I complete very little.

      Hi Linda. I’m sorry to hear of your struggles and about the passing of your mother. I would imagine the second week of August will be especially powerful. In Vedic Astrology, it will be a time of slaying greedy dragons and serpents. Stay strong! This is a great month to face the struggles presented to us in 2021. Hang in there. – Heidi

    Hello Heidi, I was surprised to receive your reading for the month of August. I always delight on these readings that Johnathon Lionheart sends. Now the best part is that you Heidi are a very welcoming guest as you’ve really been a game changer for me. Your readings regarding the dates around the August 15 through the 22nd really signify an important time in my life. Furthermore, the mention of babies and knowing of any babies was very accurate as I do have a grandchild that was born precisely on the date if the blue moon and as for me being an Aquarius with the influence of the blue moon really blew it out of the water. Wow!! Thank you for your gift and thank you for sharing with your light to the world.

      Hi Mary. What you are intending to manifest is a wonderful example of the energies. People are having spiritual awakenings and realizing that we are all in this together. They drive by the homeless and receive a gently nudge to help. This can happen with anyone or anything…it depends on the person. The Universe is helping us “wake up” and take better care of ourselves, each other, and the Earth. Many blessings to you on your journey. – Heidi

    I have been moving into a strong level of self care. Regaining my physical connection with myself needing my body to match my mindfulness in other areas. Allowing myself to be patient, but be bold in not working from fear, trusting my communication with myself in the compassion I extend to others. I’m focused on how it feels every step I accomplish instead of how hard the work can be. I’m worthy of my own love and creating my life and it’s time I treat myself accordingly. Falling in love with my goodness.

      Hi Michele.

      It is very difficult to give a definitive answer in a general reading. That is why seeing someone’s natal chart and using an innate ability with intuition helps an astrologer give accurate readings. I do offer readings and can help you with this question, there are links attached to the P.P.S. section of my post.

      The truth is, love can enter our lives at any time. Astrology assists with understanding the energies, but at the end of the day, free will is a much more influential factor in our lives. In August, Venus will enter Libra on August 15th and will be there through September 10. This is an excellent time to feel more beautiful, artistic, and cooperative; which could attract a new love interest. When we feel good we radiate self-love and acceptance and we always attract what we radiate…the Universe is programmed to respond to our energies. “The Universe doesn’t respond to what you say, it responds to what you mean.” – Dolores Cannon

      That is why I am encouraging readers to manifest the week when 5 planets are in the signs they rule. The energies will be in your favor! Best wishes to you! – Heidi

    If you study the Vedas then why are you using Western astrology in your reading? I did Western astrology for 20 years but have been studying Vedic astrology for almost 6 years be now. I find Vedic astrology much more accurate & meaningful.

      Hi Linda!

      Great question and this will allow other readers to get to know me better. I have studied astrology for over 15 years. I started with Western at Kepler College and eventually discovered Vedic. In my private practice, I mainly use Vedic techniques and my guru uses a tropical zodiac, not sidereal (which I know is quite controversial amongst experts in this genre of astrology). I am currently discussing w/Cosmic Updates to write an article in the future that will talk about Vedic astrology; so readers will understand more when I discuss the Nakshatras and Yogas. The August report I wrote used a great deal of Vedic techniques to help me write the interpretations that I found most accurate. For example, at the time of the new moon on August 8, the Sun, Moon, and Mercury will be in Aslesa. I did not write about that, but it is reflected in my article.

      Regarding studying the Vedas, I was raised Christian and continue my studies in Christianity, but my awakening during 2020 and 2021 has been to other religions and cultures (the Vedas and the Kabbalah) and seeking the truth about God and how astrology and tarot and our intuitive abilities help us connect to source. I now study all three religions, mainly us Vedic astrology methods, but because I have a background in western, traditional, and modern astrology; I can weave all that knowledge to find the purist and most accurate answer. I am also trained in tarot, an intuitive, and psychic medium; so I am comfortable with this process, but mainly rely on Vedic techniques.

      I hope that answers your question. I know many people are purists, my beloved Vedic astrology teacher is and I’ve had many philosophical debates with him about the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto). I don’t use them in my private practice, but will for my write-ups for Cosmic Updates.

      I hope you found my article helpful on your journey and thank you for the great question! What are you going to manifest in August?

      – Heidi
