Monthly Horoscope August 2015

By Kshitij Sharma, July 21, 2015

The monthly horoscope for August  2015 is presented for you based on the moon sign, i.e. janma rashi in your horoscope, based on the Vedic niryana system. Please do not substitute your Sun sign or a western astrology moon sign here. If you do not know your janma rashi, please refer to the kundali application on this page. 8th house presence for Chandra is called Chandrashtama and is a period of grave caution. These dates are indicated. The dates for caution on financial matter are also indicated. People with a particular janma rashi should avoid dealing in financial matters on these dates, e.g. investment of property, stock market, giving and taking loans should be avoided.

The planetary positions for the month of August 2015 are as follows.

Sun is in mitra kshetra of Cancer in the beginning of the month. It remains there till 17th of August, when it moves to swakshetra Leo. Sun will be in close conjunction with Mars in the first half of the month. While in Leo, Sun will again be conjunct with Jupiter and Jupiter will be combust then.

Mars is in water sign of Cancer during the month. It moves to debilitation sign of Cancer on 31st July and remains debilitated for the entire month of August 2015. Ketu aspects Mars through this transit, further debilitating it. A retrograde Venus will also be conjunct with Mars when it goes back to Cancer.

Mercury is in Cancer in the first few days. It moves to Leo on August 4th. Mercury will move through Leo and will move to swakshetra Virgo on August 23rd. During Leo transit, Mercury will be conjunct with Jupiter and under 10th house aspect of Saturn, further hemmed between Rahu and Mars. While in Virgo, Mercury will be conjunct with Rahu.

Jupiter is transiting through mitra-kshetra Leo during which, Jupiter has come under 10th house aspect from Saturn. Jupiter will also be conjunct with Venus when it transits through Leo. Jupiter is less than 8 degrees from Sun and this is combustion of Jupiter. It is considered combust, i.e., astangat from August 17th through 1st week of September.  The details of Jupiter’s Leo transit are already covered in a dedicated article.

Venus moves to Leo on 5th July. It comes under 10th house aspect of Saturn. During this time, it is conjunct with Jupiter. During the 2nd half of the month, retrograde Venus enters Cancer, while moving backwards through zodiac. It is then conjunct with Mars and under 5th house aspect of Ketu. Venus will be combust, i.e., astangat from August 12th onwards till August 20th.

Saturn has been retrograde throughout the month of July in the sign of Scorpio. It comes out of retrogression. It will be almost stationary on August 2nd. It will be in direct motion immediately after. Ketu continues to have 9th house aspect on Saturn.

Rahu is located in the sign of Virgo.

Ketu is located in the sign of Pisces.

Horoscope for August 2015 for Moon sign Aries – Mesha Janma Rashi

Sun transits through 4th and 5th house this has an effect on your emotions, children, judgement and intellect. Saturn is going through the eighth house transit – Ashtama Shani and that causes a problem with support from others. A debilitated Mars moves through your 4th house and hence will be considered a manglik house transit, with an effect on your emotional makeup, spouse and place of work. The work life balance will be in bit of imbalance. A fortunate Jupiter transit is in progress. However, in the beginning month, Sun and Mars are in vedha house for Jupiter. During the second half of the month, Jupiter is combust and Mars’ vedha continues.

Home, Family and Domestic Environment: During the first half of the month, transits would be tougher on family and domestic life. Useless arguments could create friction in family. Relationship with mother will be constrained during the month.  Avoid being moody and restless. During the second half, you can be dominating over your children, especially if they fail to reach the standards set by you. One piece of advice – let children be children. Things will improve from August 3rd week onwards when children will be the source of pride. Atmosphere in the family will also improve.

Travel: There is nothing of importance for travel during the month. Planning is required during travel, otherwise it can give discomfort.

Health: During the month, illnesses could bother you and your family. You may suffer from indecision, which is an illness of the mind. Be careful of fevers, stomach troubles and other pitta disorders.

Finance, Business & Job: The month indicates opposition at place of work. Some of you may be worried during the tax season. Competitors in business as well as at place of work would bother you. Be careful of any real estate deals through out the month. Do not sign any deals without doing necessary homework. You could become target of cheating. During his period, if you use your brain and can do some scheming, you can win victory over your enemies, especially in the second half.

Chandrashtama days: August 22nd, 23rd, 24th.

Days of caution on financial matters: August 4th, 5th, 8th, 9th

Horoscope for August 2015 for Moon sign Taurus – Vrishabha Janma Rashi

This will be a mixed month for Taurus rashi borns and first half of the month would be better than the second one. Sun moves from 3rd house to 4th house in transit. Jupiter is now in 3rd house transit, but the malefic aspects will be muted as it is combust. Saturn’s adhayia shani seventh house transit indicates problem in married life and relationships. Mars third house transit makes you courageous. However, Mars is debilitated and hence the results will be muted. Sun is in Mercury’s vedha during Mercury’s Leo transit.

Home, Family and Domestic Environment: During the month, there could be issues with relatives, friends and siblings. At home, there could be problems with the partners, especially in 2nd half of the month. You may feel conflict with family, but may not be able to speak up. This would be a bad idea, since getting the communication right is important. The time at home will also be hectic. 2nd half of the month indicates parties and get togethers.

Horoscope for August 2015 for Moon sign Gemini – Mithuna Janma Rashi

August is relatively a better month for the Gemini borns. Jupiter’s transit is adverse. Mars is going through the 2nd house manglik transit. Saturn’s transit is favourable and will help you overcome other more unfavourable transits.

Home, Family and Domestic Environment: While you will have nice time with the family, you can get into disputes with your social circle, your peers.

The second half of the month will be better than the first. 2nd and 3rd weeks of August indicate happiness in married life.

Travel: You may be seriously thinking about a chance in residence. You may take up short travels to scout for opportunity. In any case, short travels would be good.

Health: Physical health would be good. On mental side – you would get into anxiety issues. During such transits, people usually pick up or resume some bad habit. Please be strong and refrain.

Finance, Business & Job: During the first half of the month, you will need to be careful with loaning people money. Avoid company of people who take a lot of short cuts in area of finance. You may get carried away and get into losses if you follow their advice. You may actually feel that you have been robbed off your money. Tax season may bring in some unpleasant surprises.

This is a good transit for earning money. This is also a good month to take a loan, although, I must stress, from a reputed financial institution. This will also be a good month for students and teachers both.

Horoscope for August 2015 for Moon sign Cancer – Karka Jamna Rashi

This is overall again an average month for Cancer rashi borns, as was July. Jupiter’s transit is favourable, but Jupiter would be combust and any positive development would likely be postponed to the 1st week of September. Sun is going through 1st and 2nd house transit, which will be stressful. Mars is in 1st house transit, and in debilitation, where it would make you irritable and aggressive. Venus would  move from 2nd house to 1st house transit and both will be beneficial. Mercury has Saturn’s vedha during the 1st part of the month.

Home, Family and Domestic Environment: You will need more care for yourself rather than others at home. This may become a bit of a problem for people who are taking care of you. If health is not an issue, my suggestions would be to be matured about it and do not neglect others. You will have rash and fiery approach towards others and become easily irritable as well. By September, you will be able to set the affairs of your house straight. You should talk things over with your partner and problems will ease up. Scrutinize your friends during this month, but do not unnecessarily blame them or judge them.

Travel: A brief period of separation with family is indicated.

Health: Infections and accidents can occur. Do not work too hard to burn yourself up. Being moody will not get your anywhere?

Horoscope for August 2015 for Moon sign Leo – Simha Janma Rashi

This is overall an adverse month for Leo rashi borns. The second part of the month is going to be better than the first part. Jupiter’s 1st house transit is already underway, but since Jupiter is combust, it will not give a lot of adverse effects. Sun is going through 12th and 1st house transit, which will be stressful. Mars is in manglik 12th house transit but it is debilitated, and will not give the usual results. Venus’ 1st house transit will be beneficial and relaxing and then it moves to an unfavourable 12th house as it is retrograde. Saturn’s ardha-ashtama is an unfavourable transit, which is tough on you at emotional level.

Home, Family and Domestic Environment: Continuing from July, you think your friends and close relatives are wasting your time. There is too much work to be done and a lot of accomplish and others are just slowing you down. This leads to too much focus on self and your own problems. Depending on the the individual horoscope, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Take a step back and reflect on your actions. If such a treatment towards friends is required, do it, but then do not make such calls in haste.

Travel: Many short travels are indicated. They may not all be beneficial. Balance these travels and avoid making commitments for travels if you don’t think they are required.

Health: It is necessary to take care of health in throughout the month half. You aren’t probably getting enough sleep right now. Eat properly and avoid constipation and other diseases. Spicy food needs to be avoided completely, otherwise pitta related stomach disorders will bother you, as you are more susceptible right now.

Horoscope for August 2015 for Moon sign Virgo – Kanya Janma Rashi

Kanya rashi borns are supported by good transit Saturn. Now that Saturn is out of retrogression, there will no longer be delays in fruition of good results to this transit. Mercury is in Saturn’s vedha position for a brief period. Jupiter is in an adverse 12th house transit for a year. Sun’s 11th house will indeed help you, but things would be a little tough in the second half. Saturn is in Venus’ vedha for the first part of the month. Mars is going through a favourable 11th house transit, but is debilitated in this house. Hence some of the good results will not be felt to the fullest extent.

Try finishing important projects and piece of work during the first half where you have lot of support from your social circle, peers. It will be tougher in the second part of the month. Your children will benefit during this month. Elder brother will be benefited by your good actions. Do not keep secrets from others.

Time has slowly been turning for Libra rashi borns since the second half of the July month. At the place of work, couple of months now will be good since Sun is going through auspicious 10th followed by 11th house transit. Saturn is in Scorpio and this means that the last leg of Sadhe sati is going on for Libra rashi borns.

Saturn’s transit through your janma rashi brings about the second of the three part Sadhe sati for you. Jupiter’s transit isn’t a favourable one.

This will also set the tone for good time at work and favours for next couple of months.

Horoscope for August 2015 for Moon sign Sagittarius – Dhanu Janma Rashi

Saturn’s transit through Scorpio indicates that Sagittarians are going through the first leg of Sadhe sati. Saturn’s retrogression has made things a little difficult in the past month, but Saturn is again in the direct motion and things will be better. The Jupiter 9th house transit will be good and will compensate for the Sadhe sati at least in some matters, but Jupiter will become combust and good results will not be felt till Sept 1st week. Sun going through 8th and 9th house transit will cause few worries. Mars is also going through the 8th house transit, which is a manglik house. It is in neecha, i.e., debilitation. Hence it may not cause many worries, but will be an irritant in affairs of the spouse. Venus’ retrogression from 9th house to 9th house is good and will help Sagittarians.

Home, Family and Domestic Environment: The family environment will be difficult for the entire month. This could cause problems with spouse and spouse’s family, i.e., your in-laws.  Conflict with partner is also indicated. Entertainment, parties and romance is in the air and those not yet married could benefit from transits this month.

Travel: You will get a chance to travel afar. This is a good time to meet new people and benefit from communication with them. Market yourself well on these journeys.

Health: Fear of unknown and being anxious is the highlight this month. Blood pressure could shoot up. You also need to take care of your diet. Do drink a lot of water and do not get dehydrated.

Finance, Business & Job: You are being stubborn and headstrong this month. This will cause you to come in conflict with many people around you – including your peers, partners in your business and superiors. This is also a time of financial problems with partners in business. This is not a very good time to take a loan as the terms and condition may not be very favourable to you. Postpone the decision to next month, if you can. Without taking loan, financial dealing in real estate (land, house, agricultural property) will be good.

Mars transits through the 7th house, while in debilitation. Venus’ transit through 8th and later 7th house will compensate for the Mars’ transit.

Home, Family and Domestic Environment: During the first part of the month, spend time with kids at home and take care of them. This is also not a good time for a romantic relationship as you will be confused about where the relationship is going.
