The final full month of summer has arrived, and August is the last month dominated by the backward motion most of our planets are currently taking according to astrologer Scarlett McNamara.
"It’s a good time to reevaluate the things that are important," McNamara tells SheKnows, noting that we should focus on living in the moment this month. "Our energy and focus are off track due to the slowing of the cosmos, so plan less and let things unfold naturally. Try not to push completion on tasks — if they can wait until next month, great!"
The slowing of the universe means that parents can be in better touch with their intuition, so it's the perfect month to uncover hidden talents in your little ones, from sports to creative pursuits. "It's time to listen and nurture," McNamara advises.
But that's just the tip of the iceberg — read on for McNamara's insight for every zodiac sign and what you can expect for yourself and your kids in August.
