August 2018 KAB Breastscopes
The dog days of summer are upon us, and with the sun in Leo ruling over the skies, the focus this month is on self-improvement! Afterall, how can you expect to serve others if you’re neglecting yourself? The final eclipse of the year occurs with the new moon on August 11th, making it the perfect day for setting new intentions and planting creative seeds. While August may have a rocky astrological start, the month ends with both Mercury and Mars returning to direct motion, boosting forward momentum and productivity as Virgo season begins on August 22nd.This is a busy month for Aries, especially for self-employed Rams, who will see long-term goals beginning to manifest. To make the best of this month’s stellar energy, Aries can benefit by creating a smart schedule that includes healthy food prep, fitness, and prioritizing rest. Be sure to plan your day around your natural energy levels in order to take advantage of your new found schedule!Relationships of all sorts come into focus for Taurus this month, making it an excellent time to get in touch with your feelings. Self-awareness is beneficial not only to your relationships but to your mental and physical health as well. Will you really wake up at 5:00 AM to workout, or is it better to schedule your fitness for later in the day? Being honest with yourself about your habits and tendencies can help you make healthier choices.Pay attention to the details this month, and don’t be afraid to ask for help, dear Gemini. This is also a great time to nurture your health. If you haven’t already, we suggest scheduling your Women’s Wellness exam this August so you can focus your energy on all the new opportunities that are coming up for you in the months ahead. Spend some extra time on your monthly self-check, really using this time to really connect with your body.Go your own way this August, Cancer, and don’t be afraid to think out of the box. This is an excellent month to take a chance on an unconventional new fitness routine, so consider signing up for something like ClassPass and challenge yourself to an exciting and challenging workout. Try some aerial yoga or a kickboxing class to bring a sense of adventure back to your fitness routine.Happy birthday, Leo! Your solar return this year brings ample opportunities, but you’ll need to get out of the house this month and into the world to take full advantage. Not too big of a problem for boisterous and gregarious Leo, but it could be such a busy time that you burn yourself out in the process, leaving you too tired to take full advantage. Reboot and nourish your posture this month (Leo rules the spin, after all) by incorporating yoga into your fitness routine.August is an excellent month for Virgos to focus on self-development, so be sure to take some time out of your busy schedule to explore your own soul. This could be a stressful time, dear Virgo, and it’s imperative that you turn down the mental chatter and factor sleep into your life! Getting enough rest at night is absolutely crucial to your physical, mental and emotional health, reducing inflammation and even protecting your body against cancer and other diseases.Take the month of August as a time to devise a long-term strategy for your goals, dear Libra. Libras can also benefit from the advice of trusted friends and mentors, and in the realm of personal health, you may even benefit from the guidance of a personal trainer or nutritionist. Having a support team can help you target specific areas that need improvement, leading to a healthier you in the long run.Go with the flow this month for best results, Scorpio. Emotions are running high for Scorpions, and you may feel a little cloudy as to which direction to take. Take a deep breath and calm your nervous system by adding more lavender into your life, dear Scorpio! Lavender in its many forms, can be enjoyed as a tea, infused in your favorite milk, added to body oil, or sprinkled into your bath. This herb is a tried and true ally for relaxation and soothing frazzled nerves.This is a beautiful month for Sagittarius, and you may find yourself feeling extra magnetic! This could be the perfect time to update your look, and what better way then revamping your hairstyle. While looks aren’t everything, feeling confident and groomed can do wonders for your self-esteem, making you more likely to get out and meet new friends and love interests. Self-care is self-love, and something as simple as a trim can help you and your hair feel your best.Communication, family, and relationships come into focus for Capricorn this month, so put work or school on the back burner and reconnect with your loved ones. You’ll benefit greatly from getting out of the normal hustle and bustle of life and returning to your roots, making this an excellent time to explore nature and rekindle your emotional ties to those you care about. This has truly been a summer of relaxation for you, but don’t worry! Work will be back on track soon, so enjoy the time off while you can.Your social charm is at an all-time high this month, Aquarius, but that doesn’t give you a free pass to neglect other important aspects of life. Prioritizing health and fitness is the key to keeping the momentum of the year going, but if your feeling short on time, you may want to try a quick yet effective workout that fits into your busy schedule. A 20-minute circuit workout to maximize your fitness could do the trick, combining strength training, cardio and stretching into one intense but short session.Pisces may be feeling a little worn out at the start of August, but by mid-month life will be flowing smoothly once more. Take some time in the next few weeks to tune into your body and pay attention to what it’s telling you about your diet. Some cravings mean that you could have a deficiency, but watch out for high sugar and carbohydrates. Delicious yet problematic foods with a high sugar content are neurobiologically addictive, so it’s best to question those late night cookies. Keep some of your favorite fruit stocked so you
