A host of planets are in your fellow earth sign Virgo throughout August. Action planet Mars is here all month, your planet Venus is here until the 16th. Add to this talk planet Mercury from the 11th to the 30th and the Sun from the 22nd and it’s a busy sector of your horoscope.
This is potentially good news for you as you are one of the sensual, fertile, creative earth signs and you’re likely to feel in your element.
The crackle of change continues to fizzle strongly in your horoscope. Yet ideally, you’re happiest when life feels stable and secure, you can move at a leisurely pace and smell the roses.
Virgo rules ones of the best sectors of your horoscope which is about good times and luck. This planetary vibe feels positive for you.
It’s a glorious season to fall in love, make a baby, be proud of your offspring, enjoy yourself, line up top entertainment, start a new hobby or creative project. Think about what you can ‘give birth to’ or bring into the world. Now’s the time when your creative juices are flowing.
This abundant theme continues throughout August so make the most of it. Continue to look at how you can improve your social life or find happiness in the small things. This is important moving forward, seeking gratitude and appreciation for what you have and your life as it is.
Home & Personal Life
Traditionally, August is Leo season and the Sun is here until the 22nd. Talk planet Mercury enlivens this sector of your horoscope until the 11th which links to your home and family. Plus, the New Moon on the 8th falls in Leo, a symbol of new beginnings.
This could be a busy time of year for you with family visiting or the builders in temporary residence. For some of you, life may feel unsettled. Or, perhaps you’re choosing to do things differently and be more independent.
This has a lot to do with Uranus, the planet of change and unpredictability, currently in your star sign, Taurus. Uranus is especially active in the first week of August, which could throw up some challenges for your career or future path.
This might be an exciting time when you’re open to new ideas or discovering new family. It does, however, feel full on. It’s important you build some ‘me’ time in to the midst of busyness.
Uranus turns direct on the 20th. Often, when an outer planet changes direction, it feels intense. If your birthday falls between May 3rd-5th, you’ll notice this the most. Sometimes, you feel wired when Uranus’ activity kicks in. It’s lively and the opposite of grounded.
Try and make sense of what you’re feeling or experiencing. This could be very personal to you, a time when you’re looking more closely at who you are and what you want and need.
Sometimes, the only way you can discover this is when you experience the opposite, i.e. you’re in a place or situation that dissatisfies you more than fulfils you.
Teamwork & Good Health
After the 16th, a more logical or rational approach is needed as your planet Venus moves into air sign, Libra. This is good for finding your allies and creating helpful alliances at work.
Libra rules your work and routine, your lifestyle and your health. It’s the planet of balance and harmony, social skills and people pleasing.
You’re likely to be happiest if work is social and you’re more effective working in a team. This is the time to strategise and analyse and work things out together.
This theme continues through the Full Moon on the 22nd. This is the second Full Moon in Aquarius and your career and future sector. The first took place on July 24th and this month’s Full Moon may flag up a repeat theme.
You do have lucky Jupiter back in Aquarius and your career and vocation sector and it’s linked in to the Full Moon. This would be a good time to take a risk and pick up the theme of progress and new opportunity that’s running through your astrology.
