Your August Monthly Horoscope: Is the Full Moon in your sign at the start of August is a good omen? Aren't you starting to feel happier? Or are you still entangled in recent issues and challenges? You've successfully protected yourself from feeling too overwhelmed by creating a series of protective barriers. The challenge is that as well as keeping trouble at bay, they're keeping good people and things out. As the month progresses and you find the confidence to lower your defences, your social life, and your mood will greatly improve.
