August, while in the peak of summer, reminds us that everything is a cycle -- one minute we're indulging in long summer days, soaking up the sun, but the very next, fall is in the air, the weather is cooling and families are preparing for back to school. Change is inevitable and time is uncontrollable, making moments like August even more precious. Now is the time for rejuvenation, the time to make the most of what we have right in front of us.

Sun Number 1
August 2012 is a 5 Personal Month in a 6 Personal Year for those with a 1 Sun Number. This month brings some changes in work and your personal life. It is a dynamic time and nothing goes according to plan, so it's better to play things by ear.
Your career progresses well now as a result of your enhanced ability to find creative solutions. You can make a good impression on some people who are in a position to reward you. There can, however, be a confrontation between you and a co-worker, with long-ranging effects. The outcome will depend on your personal strength and self-confidence. If you are involved in business deals or legal affairs, some surprising changes may take place this month.
In all areas of your life, flexibility and adaptability are important. Traveling, perhaps across the ocean, is possible and favorable. Your friends and family also require a lot of attention now. Social gatherings are frequent and can bring new relationships into your life. Romance is exciting, so be socially active. If you are single, you could meet someone who will be a permanent part of your life.
Sun Number 2
For those with a Sun Number 2, August 2012 is a 6 Personal Month in a 7 Personal Year, and with it comes stability and quiet. There is recognition and respect at work, but also the possibility that someone else takes credit for your effort. Apply yourself diligently. Responsibility and duty rule this month. There is a possibility for financial gain, probably from a source other than work.
Your family and friends need your love and attention; give it freely. Especially give your time and advice to a younger person. There is a lot of love that surrounds you now, but you may not be aware of it. Your attention is focused inward and you may want more time alone than you actually have. Maintain balance. The people close to you need attention and you should be there for them. Your spouse or romantic partner requires much of you this month, too, and your relationship can deepen as a result.
Sun Number 3
August 2012 is a 7 Personal Month in an 8 Personal Year for those with a Sun Number 3. The emphasis shifts from outgoing to inward-seeking now. You are more serious and self-reflective, questioning the wisdom of some of your decisions and choices made during the past 10 - 12 months. You keep to yourself, and are generally less social.
You are engrossed in your work now, and feel a need to do a better job. Your desire for perfectionism is strongly enhanced, which results in self-criticism and impatience with others. At the root of this change in attitude is a spiritual need for clarity and understanding. You want more security, both internally as well as in your more worldly roles. You would do well spending some time alone for contemplation and meditation. In this respect, August stands out during this otherwise "material" year.
Family and friends take a backseat during this period. There are strong feelings connected to your relationships with your loved ones, but these are experienced and expressed more subtly. Romance becomes more serious as well. You share mental, spiritual, and emotional experiences on the deepest level. There is no room for superficial exchanges. Your relationship with the person you are attracted to intensifies and becomes stronger as a result.
