You already realize that just doing what feels right in life is not the best way to run your life—but today, you really need to focus on staying rooted in reality. Try to go for intellect rather than emotion when you are connecting with people. Don't just look into their eyes and sense their intentions—you have got to listen to what they say and completely understand their intentions. The time for guessing or assuming is over. You need to know who you are dealing with.

A burst of creativity and social energy makes it easy to take a work project to the next level on August 14 when the confident sun pairs up with artistic Venus in your second house of income. If you’ve been feeling stuck, this momentum boosts your confidence. Share and celebrate your success with colleagues!
Then, around August 15, when the full moon is in your eighth house of sexual intimacy, you’ll be reflecting on how you can best balance your wants and needs with your partner’s or a potential significant other’s. This intense but balance-boosting transit is all about ensuring there’s reciprocity in your closest bonds. If there isn’t, you may need to have a tough conversation in order to move in a healthier direction.
Conversational Mercury is now traveling forward in your creative sign. Your words not only have more feeling and compassion now, but you’re much less likely to encounter miscommunications that lead to arguments and hurt feelings.
There’s a lot to be hopeful about during the positive Venus-Jupiter trine on the eighth, especially if you’ve been waiting for news concerning a pending situation. It should be a nice surprise to hear that everything is on track or, better yet, completed ahead of schedule.
Your ruler moon is full in eccentric Aquarius on the fifteenth, encouraging you to come out of your shell and do something out of the ordinary. You have a lot of artistic and/or creative talents that make you unique, Cancer. Use one of them to get the attention you deserve.
Money-targeting Venus enters rigid Virgo on August 21, adding a lot of structure to your financial affairs. If you’re ready to make investments, you’re better off focusing on long-term, low-risk options. This isn’t a good time to lend anyone money either. If a friend or relative asks for a financial favor, you might have to turn them down.
Life can be a lot of fun when the sun enters Virgo on the twenty-third, especially if you spend a lot of time around children. You appreciate childlike qualities now, especially in people who don’t mind coloring outside the lines and dancing like no one is watching.
