AUG 23 - SEP 22

A Rebirth

As August gets underway, the sun continues its journey through a spiritual and reflective zone. Virgo, this is the time to jettison any emotional baggage and find closure on long-standing issues. You need a chance to consider your priorities for the coming months as you recharge and relax. Starting on August 22, the sun will be in your sign and you’ll begin a new phase. Until then, tie up loose ends and clear up anything that is hanging over you so you have a clean slate to work with.

However, as talkative Mercury moves into your sign on the third, you’ll find it easier to draw up a to-do list, create strategies and get moving on your current plans. It’s a chance to express yourself and ask for advice and feedback if you need it.

The full moon in Aquarius on August 11 can reveal to you a lot about your habits at work and your ability to be productive. And this could come about because of a minor crisis that forces you to make a few key changes. You’ll be eager to implement them once you see where you’ve been going wrong. Things can then go from strength to strength.

At the same time, charming Venus moves into Leo and a secluded sector, so its time to give yourself some nurturing and understanding. Turn your loving attention onto yourself and indulge in some self-care and self-forgiveness. If you’ve been a little hard on yourself lately, try to be more easygoing.

On the twenty-second, the sun glides into your sign for a four-week stay, empowering you and enhancing your confidence. This is your chance to assert yourself. Pour energy into plans and projects that are meaningful to you and can help you expand your reach and fulfill your potential.

Finally, with a new moon in your sign on August 27, the cosmos is encouraging you to kick-start those plans, new habits, business, relationships or anything else you’re eager to initiate.
