August 2023 Horoscopes: Red Flags and Retrogrades

Published on: 10th August, 2023


And Laura and Alex are back from vacation to tell you what’s in store for your birthday month! Unfortunately, what’s in store is a lot of retrograding planets, which translates into a less than ideal time to throw a lavish birthday celebration. 

The gals jump right into this episode with a recap of Susan’s Note to her readers. Susan tells us that she has a new feature on her website, but due to the error of one of her engineers, it currently lacks some critical information. But don’t worry because in the meantime Susan Miller Businesswoman is here to tell you all about her many apps and how you can buy them.

The episode continues with a recap of Leo’s forecast. Laura and Alex are disappointed that this month’s birthday horoscope lacks unhinged Susan-style metaphors, but they carry on and deliver the bland forecast anyway. Laura then tells her fellow Taureans that they must watch out for all the supermoons that are supermooning as well as multiple retrograding planets, including Venus, their ruler. Let’s just say this is not the time for Taurus to throw parties or partake in unnecessary beauty regimens. Alex ends the episode by reviewing the rules of Venus retrograde and assuring Scorpio that September will be better.

Laura and Alex discuss the following at these timestamps:
