Unfinished business left over from last month is still very much in evidence through August 2022, but the lucky stars should help resolve small problems, albeit the larger ones still need plenty of input.
According to the August 2022 Chinese horoscope, you will map out new beginnings and you will cultivate a better expansion of things that are already in place.
Instead of getting yourself in a flap, realize that the loose ends from before need the minimum of effort to resolve, so get them tied up and leave yourself free to focus on the bigger options which lie ahead this month.
Your finances will start on an upward curve but could come to a grinding standstill owing to an old thorn in your flesh re-appearing at the latter end of August.
Don’t allow this to affect your mood or unnecessary confrontation with lovers, family and friends could cause moodiness and the cold shoulder from others, the knock-on effect is that this unpleasant atmosphere could last for the whole month.
An emotionally fraught month where most partnered Ox natives will find their partners to be hard to please no matter – even if they give them the blood from their veins.
You just can’t seem to do enough for them or prove your love for them. It almost seems they’re on a mission to do exactly the opposite of what you need of them.
My advice is to let them get on with it and stop blaming themselves.
They have to face their own demons and it’s nothing to do with you. The only problem is that you can’t exist in a stalemate forever, so when joint decisions have to be made you’ll need to voice your opinion, and yet again you’ll encounter opposition and perhaps even hostility.
Don’t be tempted to ignore what’s going on or brush things under the carpet.
Stop pretending your personal feelings don’t matter. They will have to be shown they’re being unfair and quite cruel at times and you don’t deserve it.
At least you’ll feel more confident over business dealings and financial commitments, but that’s not to say you can afford to indulge in luxury. Not yet anyway.
As per the Chinese Horoscope, August 2022 is a month to take as much time as you need to reflect carefully on your relationship.
Question your attitudes and motivations and ask yourself if you’ve been playing fair.
There seems to be an ever-widening chasm between you and lovers, and because you’re blaming it totally on the other party, you’re not seeing clearly. It takes two and you have to face up to that.
Stop being so pious that you think you’re doing no wrong. You’re as much to blame if the truth is known. If not more so.
Utilize the good luck brought by the stars to resolve this sad state of affairs. It’s so unnecessary.
Business contacts and people you meet socially through August will be helpful to you as time marches on, so expect expansion in your professional life followed by an upturn in your finances.
On the 13th, expect a vast upward curve in business matters, allowing you to clear away many old obstacles and stumbling blocks in one fell swoop.
Just because you’ve cleared the decks of outstanding debts though, don’t think you can just start again.
This is not a good thing to do or you’ll be back to square one before you can say overdraft.
On the 19th the starts will boost your energy and direction, so use it wisely over getting your love life back into shape.
Get rid of the people who interfere too much and listen to lovers first and foremost.
Although you’ve been more prone to reflection as opposed to decisive action over recent months, that’s not to say your mind hasn’t been playing leapfrog with new ideas and notions.
August may just be the month when you’ll get those plans on the back burner out into the collective, with pride and confidence that they’ll work this time around.
You’ll find the surge of energy and boost of confidence second to none, urging you onwards and upwards. The sky will be your limit and you’ll take no prisoners.
Staid old situations will no longer exist and because of this new effervescent, you will all see, that new opportunities and options will come at you thick and fast. A great month to make decisions, be positive and get things done.
A fabulous month where you’ll be in the right place at the right time to take advantage of new opportunities and options over money and work.
Just make sure you don’t neglect whoever you have at home and hearth as they may not see these opportunities to be as golden as you.
If they’re not included or not considered, they may try to thwart your plans. That would be a shame as they look great, so make sure you give them their place when making decisions for the future.
The middle two weeks of the month see you reaping the rewards for the hard work and effort you’ve applied since the year began and will prove to you you’re moving in the right direction.
Promotion could occur around this section of the month. This leads you into talking turkey over joint financial matters with loved ones, and you’d be well advised to consider as many different options as possible before making final decisions.
Work at clearing old debts by the 20th. Also from the 20th onwards, double-check all travel arrangements as Neptune has a habit of washing away things set in stone so take the time to check up.
It’s also a good time to have a health overhaul. It’s been a while. All in all a good month where you can now see that you’re moving forward with purpose and direction.
You seem to be getting caught up in the travel bug too, but in your case, it’s more in connection to career matters as opposed to fun, not that it should be ruled out together of course.
Fate is working in your corner and for those of you considering working or even living abroad, this would be a good month to get your official documents in order.
Later in the month, your lucky stars will encourage another form of travel. That of the spiritual kind.
Mind travel even astral travel. Your mind is now opening up and broaching areas you’d never have considered years ago.
This will be good for you. Your emotional issues have to be faced and finally concluded before you can come full circle in the love zone.
Things will get worse before they get better so tread carefully on the 8th as things may reach fever pitch and harsh words could be spoken.
Still, sometimes it’s better to let rip and clear the air as this particular thorn in the flesh has been going so long it should be set to music.
Be open and honest as after the 20th, you should have things sorted out again.
A sociable month where you’ll be on everyone’s party list, but if approached by a stranger telling you of a get rich quick scheme, run as fast as you can.
A month where you’re going to have to learn to say no when others make excessive demands on your time energy and attention. If not, your health could suffer.
After the 19th, you’ll be much more able to comply with their requests, as your energy will become boosted again.
A generally positive feeling across the board will help you tackle this month, and as your confidence increases, you’ll cut through all obstacles like a knife through butter.
An energetic latter half of the month where the sporty among you will benefit from taking up new sporting challenges or new hobbies, but just be careful not to overstretch yourself – or your muscles – as it’s also a very sociable month and you’ll be expected to party on down for the most part.
A minor hiccup in love occurs around mid-month, but if you keep your feet on the ground and ride the storm you’ll go from strength to strength.
The old feelings of disappointment, unworthiness and general negativity should finally disappear.
You’ve had a long haul over the past few years and will find it hard to believe it’s coming to an end. But it is.
The knock-on effect is that your love life should now go through the roof since the oppression and restriction have been removed.
Good news there then. However, take a minute to consider the lessons fate has taught you over this time and think before rushing into a commitment of any kind in the future.
It’s not only your love life that has felt like a black cloud but also work, money, and health areas have had their fair share of negativity too. Well no more.
The uphill s struggle is gone and you should now sail ahead with hope in your heart and a spring in your step.
Try to take a more mundane and practical view over your career and cash situation as foundations laid down now will be your security blanket over the weeks and months to come.
See the bigger picture and don’t get involved in underhand schemes to make money quickly. They won’t work.
Confrontation with lovers or workmates around the time of the full moon on the 8th will not be as uncomfortable as you’d think as great results will come from clearing the air so don’t be afraid to speak from the heart. Shake off that old winter coat that’s been weighing you down and get ready for spring to grab your fancy.
Someone new who entered your social or business circle last year, who gave you food for thought over changing a constant in your life has had a bigger effect on your thinking than you’d first imagined.
You’ve found yourself thinking about what they said and it’s been drip-feeding into your subconscious for a few months.
Maybe it’s now time to take the steps to get the ball rolling.
August is a great month to change the nuts and bolts of your life by restructuring your foundations. They were built on shifting sands anyway I’m sure you’d agree.

Frustration and dissatisfaction in your career also need to be addressed, so maybe it’s time to look further afield or even enter a new field.
On the 5th you will start on your new road to freedom so expect more travel to be included in your agenda. This may also bring new romance into your life.

You can stop holding your breath and start to breathe normally again.
It’s time to lick your personal life into shape, so if you’ve let your gym membership lapse or you’ve cheated on your diet, or started smoking again, make a more concerted effort to kick yourself back into touch.
Projects you’ve been involved in have had more than their fair share of restrictions too, but this now leaves also, letting you get on with the job at hand, and you’ll find things now starting to shape up nicely.
The 5th will give you a taste of what’s to come where luck is involved so take note of what happens on this day as it could be the start of something big later in the month.

A little at a time is the best way forward for you, and this is a great month to start the ball rolling.
A month to downshift and keep things simple, as it would seem your career interest and domestic affairs are on a head-on collision course with each other and if not dealt with properly, there will be blood on the tracks.

A testing month all around emotionally where you’ll feel pulled in different directions, but try to focus mainly on your marriage, partnership, or partner around this month as that’s where the main problems lie.
Be sensitive and supportive to get the best results, as even if things do eventually come to a head, your attitude will ensure situations are greatly diluted.
