Skye Tanberry has been consulting the stars again... take a look and see what your horoscope for August has in store!

LEO: 24 Jul - 23 Aug
You've learned a lot in the last few months. It's been a steep learning curve but you will be stronger for it... and much clearer about what you want the future to bring. Look for one good thing in every day and keep moving forward... small steps, but sure!

VIRGO: 24 Aug - 23 Sept
Your head is a whirl of crazy ideas just now - but don't dismiss them out of hand, some of these ideas are sharp, smart and innovative. Get talking to friends, family and the wider community to discuss how you can put your thoughts into action!

LIBRA: 24 Sept - 23 Oct
If you've been over-doing it lately you may find you need to stop for a while and chill. Summer isn't just about racing from one fun activity to the next, it's also about taking some downtime. Grab that sun cream and a favourite book and hit the sun lounger...

SCORPIO: 24 Oct - 22 Nov 
You're in planning mode this month... why not give in to the impulse and get organised for the new school/ college term? Sort out uniform, stationery etc and get to work on any summer projects you may have been given. The year ahead is going to be full-on... but awesome, too!

SAGITTARIUS: 23 Nov - 21 Dec
You have itchy feet... your nomadic nature has you dreaming about travel and holidays. If you don't have any trips away to look forward to, take things into your own hands and plan a few days out with friends/ family. Summer is the perfect time for an adventure!

CAPRICORN: 22 Dec - 20 Jan
Feeling a little lost without the usual term time routines? Embrace the freedom, even if it feels a little unsettling to start with! Summer has lots of new opportunities for you to explore... and groups, classes and projects you could join, too. Do you dare?

AQUARIUS: 21 Jan - 19 Feb
You're enjoying your freedom just now and trying to fit as much fun into every week as you can. That's great... but don't just dash from one thing to the next without thinking. Find your priorities. Life is throwing you some brilliant chances right now... make sure you take them!

PISCES: 20 Feb - 20 Mar
A holiday romance or perhaps a close holiday friendship is in the stars for August... be open to the possibilities and don't let any natural shyness get in the way. You have a lot to learn from someone new... perhaps someone very unexpected!

ARIES: 21 March - 20 Apr
Summer hasn't been feeling too thrilling yet - you're stuck in a rut of chores, jobs and plans. Yes, it's important to keep things running smoothly at home, but it's also time to relax! Plan some free time with friends or family when you can shelve all the worries and enjoy the moment.

TAURUS: 21 Apr - 21 May
Strong bonds are pulling you back into the family fold right now... it's time to touch base and take some family time. It might be a holiday away or even just a day trip, but time spent with those you love is never wasted; enjoy every minute.

GEMINI: 22 May - 21 Jun
Feeling frazzled? Slowing down is not a typical Gemini trait, but sometimes you have no choice... it's time to recharge the batteries! Your imagination has been working overtime lately... why not grab a notebook and capture some of that creativity on paper?

CANCER: 22 Jun - 23 Jul
You've discovered - or are about to discover - a new hobby or interest this summer break. It may be sporty and active or arty/ techy / creative... either way, give it your enthusiasm and energy and you will be rewarded. New skills build confidence and bring fun into our lives... what's not to like?

Cathy says:
Well, my prediction has more than a grain of truth in it... frazzled? Me? Just a bit! Do Skye's predictions ring true for YOU? COMMENT BELOW to share your thoughts!


  1. Mine's kind of right...I am making a doll next week or so because I fell in love with a game that's fairly new so there's no merchandise available. I like plushes though so I've looked up patterns and purchased craft velour, yarn, thread, cotton and stuffing as well as fake fur and safety eyes for the little cat. Maybe it will be a new hobby. Maybe it won't. But I want to give it a shot. My brother's horoscope is a bit off though. It implies that the last few months have been tough but actually, he's been having a great time!

  2. I don't know if mine will be right but I am at a summer performing course so I will meet new people (I am peices)

  3. I have discovered swimming and have started to try to go to my local Lido twice a week. It's great fun! I am a Cancer
