August Monthly Horoscope - Virgo


Dear Virgo, you might encounter some sudden obstacles or frustrations on the 1st when it comes to your work life or your health. Try to avoid rash, impatient actions- as much as you would love a ticket towards perfection, progress is made one step at a time. As Venus enters your 2nd house on the 6th, you’re inspired to take care of financial matters and to enjoy the world of the senses. However, Venus squares Saturn (the 9th) and Pluto (the 26th) this monththis month, you might be encountering challenges to your sense of self-worth. Remember to appreciate your gifts and try to allow yourself some enjoyment from time to time. On the 7th, Uranus retrogrades in your 9th house, marking the start of a 6-month period where you might have sudden shifts in your life philosophy and approach to self-growth. The Leo Solar Eclipse on the 11th shakes up your spiritual practice, your solitary habits, your tendency to sacrifice yourself and any addictions that you might have. Your deepest emotions, linked to a need to be seen and appreciated, might come to surface now. Be patient with yourself, try to tone down your reactions and take some time to inhabit your inner world with awareness, because this is the lesson that the current Eclipse has for you. Mars retrograding in Capricorn on the 12th might bring up issues around romance, fun, creativity or children that you’ve encountered this May, encouraging you one more time to reflect on what planning and taking responsibility mean to you in these areas.

On the 18th, the Venus-Mercury sextile might show you ways in which your past sacrifices to others have been paying off, maybe in the form of a good word or even a reward. Mercury going direct on the 19th eases your house of spiritual practice, sacrifice and addictions, removing blockages and maybe allowing some progress with the changes that were seeded on the Eclipse! On the 23rd, the Sun enters your 1st house, marking a time when YOU are in the center of the stage! Especially with the Grand Earth Trine on the 25th, this is a great time to invest in your physical body (a makeover, anyone?), in your pastime activities and in personal growth, all with the diligence and practicality that define you.

The Pisces Full Moon brings to a conclusion what has started this March regarding relationships and partnerships. The best way to relate to others with compassion at this time is through first investing in yourself. How has this manifested for you since March? On the 27th, Mars goes direct- gone are the days of low energy, frustrations and blockages in your daily work, health matters, romance and creativity. Enjoy this relieving August end as your batteries get recharged to their full potential!
