Can you believe it's already August? Summer is flying by but we've got a fresh round of Hoescopes to keep you present!
I am dressed to the nines, dripping with sex appeal and covered in confidence. With the Sun in Leo within my house of creativity and pleasure, I will utilize August as a month for sexual self-confidence. Leo energy thrives on applause. Therefore I am spending this month working on my performance. With Pluto the planet of transformation, Jupiter the planet of abundance, and Saturn the planet of order occupying my house of career and legacy- towards the middle of the month, I am finding some difficulty balancing my life goals and as well as my sexual life. As the month progresses, the heights of my sexual arousal express itself throughout the beginning and the middle of the month. On August 5th, Mercury, the ruler of my houses of self-expression and daily habits, enter the sign Leo, within my house of pleasure, where it will stay until August 19th. This transit will challenge me to communicate my needs loudly and proudly as they say- “a closed mouth doesn’t get fed.”
August is all about reintroducing myself to my sexual desires and re-exploring my mind to new sexual possibilities. As the ruler of my house of pleasure enters the sign of Leo on August 5th, I welcome the summer “heat” to empower my sexual desires. As Saturn, the planet of boundaries, Pluto the planet of transformation, and Jupiter the planet os wisdom fill up my house of higher learning and long-distance travel, I am beginning to recount and rediscover my framework for sex. I pride myself on being someone who knows themselves, their values, and their beliefs. Being a fixed Earth sign, it’s only within the norm that I have a specific way of doing things, and I have strong ideas on how I like to receive touch. As August comes and goes, my primary objective for August is to rethink what I thought I knew about sex to make room for new information. Sex and sexuality are endless pools of experiences; it’s only human to get experimental!
As Mercury, the ruler of my house of pleasure enters Leo on August 5th, I remember to discover myself through exploring my kinks. They each have a tale of their own, something more they will teach me about myself. I am discovering more about my sensual side by learning about my likes and dislikes. I prioritize my pleasure first and foremost. As Pluto, the planet of transformation, and Jupiter, the planet of optimism, fill up my house of deeper intimacy, I am learning how to embrace my sexuality even more. I welcome my shadow to teach me all the ways in how sex can be a tool for self-healing. Saturn, planet of boundaries, in my house of transformation, shows me that my past wounds do not define my sexuality today. I learn from my sexual boundaries and understand how my body communicates what feels good and what doesn’t. I am allowed to reinvent my sexuality every step I take forward. I am free to indulge in a new sexual fantasy.
I am learning how to feel safe sexually connecting with someone in the bedroom. As the Sun in Leo shines in my house of values, I am learning the importance of allowing myself to be vulnerable. I am allowed to feel free through my sexual expression. If it takes me longer to feel emotionally secure with someone, I am patient with myself. I allow myself to embrace someone who respects my sexual boundaries into my life. As Pluto, planet of renewal, and Saturn, planet of commitments, stay in my house of partnerships, I understand that I am now evaluating my commitment to my sexual relationship and I let any partners know. Venus, planet of connections, in my house of my subconscious is showing me how to prioritize what I find essential in my sex life. Maybe it’s time for me to worry less about the “what ifs” and have more orgasms!
As the Sun in Leo moves through my house of identity, I find myself getting more creative in the bedroom. I am feeling excited to find these new ways of expressing my sexuality. I am open to trying out a different kink or a new sex toy, like cloning my partner’s sexy parts! I see how sex is an art in its own way, and I want to be painted with my orgasms. I am the canvas of my sexual desires. Jupiter, planet of expansion, rules my house of pleasures, and I know I am always open to new kinks! With Jupiter now filling my house of everyday pursuits, I know that changing up my sexual routine keeps my fire burning. As Venus transits my house of online connections, I find that exploring new fetishes on the internet turns me on in ways I would not expect. I am full of surprises this month!
Mercury, the planet of communication, moving through the house of my subconscious, is teaching me how to explore my hidden sexual fantasies. I am free from the feeling of needing to control my sexuality. I welcome myself to embrace the fantasies I have been hiding from. Why must I hide such an integral part of who I am from others? I am letting go of the shameful feelings I have surrounding sex. I am free from other’s expectations of defining my sexuality for me. As Saturn, planet of control, and Jupiter, planet of expansion, reside in my house of pleasure, I am learning to let myself loose in the bedroom. I am embracing the need to be present with my sexuality. I am letting go of the narrative that I must think ten steps ahead instead of being in the moment. My sexuality is mine alone, and no one else’s.
The Sun in Leo moving through my house of desires, means that I am allowed to let my imagination run wild. Having wet dreams just means my body needs to be pleased more. I let my naughty side run free to travel my body. As Venus, planet of connections, moves through my house of acquiring knowledge; I am learning more about my likes and dislikes. I am discovering more about my sexuality every day. I know I am attractive and charming. Other people do not define how I feel about myself in the bedroom. Perhaps exploring sexting more fulfills my intellectual cravings. I am focused on my sexual needs this month. I am learning that sex requires an equal exchange of giving and receiving. I demand my desires be met this month. I communicate my emotions with my partner and ask for my sexual needs to be fulfilled.
I am walking into a more confident light this August. The Sun in Leo moving through the house of my future self means that I am learning to empower myself through my sexuality.

I know that all eyes are on me this month, and it makes me feel hot. My partner is giving more attention to the details of my touch. My body is a temple, you can look, but only those I give permission to can touch. August is teaching me who deserves to look at the holy site of my body. I know to trust and follow my heart when my intuition feels like someone is unworthy of it. I move forward without hesitation.
August is showing me how to empower myself by realizing that nothing can hold me down, not even my own self-limiting beliefs surrounding love and sex. On August 7th, Venus, Planet of connections, will be moving into my house of deeper intimacy. I let go of my fear of commitment because I recognize that love is freedom and choice. I am always craving my freedom, but I still feel tied down to fear. I am finding my freedom through learning how to let go of the shackles of my past fears. I am in control of my world through the choices that I make. I embrace the desire to share myself wholly and passionately. Mercury, the planet of communication, in Leo through my house of higher learning, shows me I am transforming through uncovering the deeper aspects of my sexuality. I am proud to be present with all of me.
Now is the time for me to find my power by taking ownership of my sexuality back. The Sun in Leo gliding through my house of deeper connections is teaching me how to let go of my expectations to be perfect. Like how, after the freezing Winter turns into the freshest blooms of Spring, I shed my skin and allow myself to transform into new parts of who I am. Any darker emotions that may come up are only teaching me how to be closer to myself. I welcome in the new perspectives the darkness will grant me. Venus, the planet of connections, moving into my house of partnerships, teaches me how I may try to control someone else or how I have let others control me. I recognize I am not perfect, but I am focused on my transformation and growth. My sexuality is under my control.
With Venus, the planet of love, in my house of pleasure, I am open to romantically mingling with someone new or engaging in new sexual experiences with someone I am already connected to. I know it’s important for me to have a light-hearted attitude about dating because there is something new I can learn from everyone I meet. I am feeling more romantic and playful than usual.

I know that someone who respects me acknowledges all of me and does not cross my sexual or romantic boundaries. I may need more space from my partner sometimes, and that is okay. It is safe for me to speak my mind and honor my own needs. I recognize that spending time alone understanding the sexual needs of my body brings me a healthier connection to myself. Masturbation is a wonderful tool for understanding how my body reacts to specific touches and toys.
