Working relationships appear to take on greater importance this month. The Leo Sun is in your 8th House of Deep Sharing until August 23, challenging you to handle people with strong personalities. The trick is to maintain your sense of purpose and direction in the midst of intense negotiations with colleagues, partners, bosses and customers. Ideally, you can help to define a constructive form to the ideas of a creative individual, but it's also possible to get bogged down in power struggles.

Recognize that not everyone shares your view of reality, and that they may exaggerate or promise too much from your perspective. However, it's healthier (and eventually more rewarding) to stretch your boundaries and act bolder in pursuit of your dreams. If you're feeling isolated in professional matters, seek out the company of someone you admire to gain the encouragement and support that you need.
Facing delays or doubts is possible around August 8, when mental Mercury is stressed by serious Saturn with the same tense angle between the Sun and the ringed planet the following day. In fact, the Full Moon on August 10 could lead you to make an important decision. It's fine to back away from a commitment if you realize that you won't be fairly rewarded for your work. On the other hand, this lunation could push you across a threshold toward a more independent way of earning a living.
On August 23, the Sun enters earthy Virgo and your visionary 9th House of Travel, where you get a glimpse of future possibilities -- but realize it will take persistence and patience to reach them.
