There is one day in August that may prove to be a little trying for you when it comes to finances, and that is August 4 when Jupiter in your communications house squares with Pluto in your sixth house of daily work. Scheduling any type of presentation, asking for a raise or lending money to a coworker are all things to avoid around this time. Even if you’re adamant about your stance on the matter, your words may be misunderstood. On the 12th of August Mercury begins its retrograde phase in your second house of cash on hand. Remember that retrogrades bring out the energy of all the “re” words, such as“review” and “rethink.” Leos have a fair shot at “renegotiating” a financial obligation so that it works more in their favor. If this sounds like something that could benefit you, then don’t be afraid to speak up.
