Horoscopes: August 2020

Finally, a horoscope that understands your life in China. 



You will spend the better part of August handing out beers to friends while chilling in a cool refreshing pool. You’ve given up on your travel bucket list and you’re just trying to make the most out of things. Don’t worry, the borders will open one day (maybe).




Your obsession with liangcha has gone from fun to feverish. Maybe give the Chinese herbal tea a rest and focus on drinking more hot water instead. After all, we’ve heard it’s ‘good for healthy.’



It’s important to pick your battles. We understand that injustices make you angry and you really want to argue with someone about them, but there’s a time and a place. As long as you don’t threaten anyone, you should be in for a fruitful month. 



Remember to continue working on self-development. Spa day? You deserve it. Yoga retreat? Treat yourself. Double boot camp leg day? Those legs won’t work themselves. You’ve still got a long way to go before people stop thinking that ‘Scorpio’ is synonymous with crazed maniac. 




Your journey to sparkling wine mountain may be the highlight of your August. This is a metaphor (don’t take us literally). What we’re really saying is you will have a badass brunch this month.



In August, you will still be working day and night and pondering if it’s all worth it. It is. Just be smart and save up for that epic vacation or honeymoon to make sure you’re living your best life.



You’re starting a new chapter in your life. Be sure to close the book before moving on, otherwise those unwritten pages will come back to haunt you. Wait, no, that’s just Libra grabbing at opportunities.



After consulting the stars, you should ‘go big or go home’ this month. But let’s be honest, if you go home then expect to be there anywhere from three months to three years. Apparently, these borders weren’t made for walking.



Because of Mars traversing Aries, August won’t be a great month for you in the relationship department. But life goes on, or as the Chinese poets say – insert green fields, wine and waterfalls.



Given the not-so-great economic outlook for the rest of the year, stop buying silly items on Taobao that you don’t need and go out and try to make a friend. One is the loneliest number. 



Now is probably the best time to move to Beijing. Think about it – the city is recovering from a second wave and rental prices are probably down. Or better yet, negotiate a sweet apartment with your new work contract.



Time is moving incredibly slow in 2020, and you’ve taken note. Your beard may have grown twice in size, or your long locks are approaching the middle of your back. Time to speed things up by going on a big adventure.
