Is 'home' a person, a place or a feeling? The boom in travel influencers and digital nomad-ing happened during Saturn in Sagittarius (2014-2017). Millennials were inspired to live life in a suitcase, beyond four walls, concrete jungle, and societal expectations. Many Insta-worthy holiday pictures and couple #followmeto picturesque moments were created.


Just like many millennials, I love travelling too! A few days ago, once Malaysians were allowed to cross state borders, I drove from Kuala Lumpur City to Pahang (Malaysia's forest state) to attend a meditation course. During the meditation, I realised that most parts of the meditation process and practices were things I could do on my own at the comfort of my home. This made me think: was travelling even necessary at all? Many of us are addicted to the idea of switching off our phones and running away from the realities of our lives (especially after being stuck working and studying at home for so many months). But at the end of the day, 2020 taught us that part of #adulting means that we need to face issues head-on — be it for business, relationships, family, studies, etc. — whether we like it or not.


August 2020 Horoscope Forecast

The previous months surely gave light to newer perspectives.


Uranus is in retrograde from 15 August 2020 till 1 January 2021. Uranus is the rebellious planet of changes, so do expect many unexpected changes in the world and lives — we'll see people breaking chains to set themselves free and fighting for humanitarian causes. Mars, the planet of war, is also influencing several planets, which means that emotions — feelings of anger and impulsiveness — will run high. On the positive side though, Mars also rules passion and sexual chemistry. Hence, many will find themselves being involved in new relationships or reigniting passion in their current relationships. What's in store for you at the start of this season? Find out below.

Aries ♈ 

March 21 - April 19


Immense blessings from the Universe are showering over your life. Simply be open — mind, body, and soul, and the Universe will guide you on your next steps. This is the time to spread your wings and soar. The time to execute your plans is now!

Taurus ♉ 

April 20 - May 20


Expand your horizons and see the world around you in a new perspective. This is not the time to have small thoughts; think outside the box. It's an exciting time for you as you may find yourself travelling or embarking on new adventures in your future. Ideas and projects that you've been contemplating are now moving toward manifestation. Unconventional relationships may flourish. Take time to nurture your dreams for significant changes are ahead.

Gemini ♊ 

May 21 - June 20


Don't be bogged down by petty details or concerns. Imagine that you are viewing life from above. Only do what is truly important; everything else is inconsequential. Go through each area of your life to look and see what the big picture is. Make major life decisions based on this strategy.


Make your plans happen.

See your plans reach their fruition.

Cancer ♋ 

June 21 - July 22


Love flows through you and to you as you are deeply loved and are profoundly loveable. In matters of romantic love, all is healing (or already healed) on the inner planes. Trust the messages from your heart and follow them, even if they are at odds with your mind. The Universe is communicating with you; listen to its whispers.

Leo ♌ 

July 23 - August 22


Happy birthday, Leos! Great news for your this month as success is on the horizon. The gates of triumph are waiting to open deep and wide for you. Internal and external success is coming your way. You are in a 'thriving' state of mind. Accept that you can reach any goal you desire and even more victories will come to your life. The more you believe it, the more love, prosperity, fame, and fortune will pour into your life.

Virgo ♍ 

August 23 - September 22


Release control and learn to let go. Trust that the Universe is on your side and all will turn out well. You enjoy being independent and self-sufficient, but really, you don't need to do it all alone. Seek help if you need to but, at the same time, let things flow. There are times to hold on and there are times to surrender completely. You are a great planner and you love planning for the future, but now, you need to turn to your spiritual source to guide you on your journey.

Libra ♎ 

September 23 - October 22


Take the time to retreat and replenish your inner sources. Incubate your ideas for the future and renew your energy. Do whatever you need to do to care for yourself. Mend physical objects in your home, organise your possessions, and heal relationships. Protect yourself from less-than-positive outside forces. You are preparing for a new beginning (springtime energy) in your life. However, you need to take care of the details and create a foundation before this spurt of energy, otherwise, it can seem overwhelming.


Break free from negativity.

Let go of negative energies.

Scorpio ♏ 

October 23 - November 21

Release what doesn't support you. A busy life and the accumulation of more than what you need creates static. Clear internal and external clutters. Do what matters and release the rest to find peace, grace, and stillness. Simplify your life; otherwise, it's difficult to hear the voice and see the signs from the Universe. Create time to rest and rejuvenate.

Sagittarius ♐ 

November 22 - December 21


A fresh new way of living emerges as you are heading towards a new transformation. Old beliefs, ideas, and decisions about who you are (and what you deserve in life) are dropping away, replaced by incredible vitality and new pathways. Soon, you'll be experiencing the world in a fresh new way.

Capricorn ♑ 

December 22 - January 19


Your light is shining brightly and all your hard work and effort is paying off. Glory, triumph, and success are yours. If you've given your power away, now is the time to reclaim it. It's time to stand in your light! Your dreams are coming into fruition. If you have incomplete projects or unresolved relationships, this is the time to complete them. All these are essentials part of reaching your destination. Take time to celebrate and acknowledge your successes in life.

Aquarius ♒ 

January 20 - February 18


Clear the past and heal the present as physical and emotional healing is occurring. There is purifying and clearing of old emotional wounds and even a release of past-life limitations is happening. Forgive everything, but most importantly, forgive yourself. Forgive those who have transgressions against you. It's time to let it all go.

Pisces ♓ 

February 19 - March 20


Pisces, the healer, is the sign that thrives in solitude. In silence, it is where they will find the depth of awareness and inner peace. This month is not the time to venture forth with a new project or a new cycle, but this month is excellent for you to step back and be still. When you are in a quiet environment, you would be able to uncover your most profound inner truth. No matter what is happening around you, seek serenity.
