Your dreams are powerfully stirred by the stars this August, Virgo. Plunging into the depths of your own psyche is easy and necessary now, and this is a perfect, essential antidote to the last few months of planetary anxiety. In other words, it’s time to get down to the business of self-care. The Full Moon in Aquarius alights in your house of work and wellness on the 3rd, so you can start the process of aligning your mind and body right from the start of the month. This allows you to let go and purge any heaviness or worry from unrealized projects during your last six months. None of it is your fault, darling – so don’t take the weight of the world on your sensitive shoulders.
The New Moon arrives on the 18th to accelerate your healing process and uplift your soul. This is your chance to set intentions for your next six months of psychological wellness, whether that includes therapy, dream-journaling, yoga, or any other modality that will bring you into deep touch with your ability to self-heal. In much more glam news, your very own birthday month begins on the 22nd, ushering in four weeks of Virgo season. You’ve totally overcome, now it’s time to totally overindulge (well, just enough to feel sated). Once a year you’ve got to give yourself this gift.

The stars are about to give you a break, Virgo – and not a moment too soon. This eclipse season has been one of the most potent on record, but the good news is that the third and final event arrives on the 5th.
After this Full Moon in your house of love and creativity, the heaviness begins to wane. If you’ve carried melancholy and missed the simple pleasures of life during the last six months of the pandemic, this is your moment to let release that sadness. It’s not just the end the current eclipse season – it’s also the end of a two-year series of eclipses in this part of your chart. Reevaluate the meaning of fun, joy, connection, and romance – because it’s all taking a new form in the second half of 2020.
Your ruler Mercury finally ends his retrograde on the 12th, releasing you from three weeks of strangeness in your social zone. This could have brought a whole new level of isolation and distancing, but after the retrograde ends, you’ll slowly get back to speed – and back to connecting with your friends.
There is a second New Moon in this part of your horoscope on the 20th – the first was last month, during the weekend of the Summer Solstice. But the great news is that this one is NOT an eclipse – it’s just a regular lunation, one that offers you the opportunity to set powerful intentions for your next six months. Make those wishes and delineate those goals, Virgo. The Sun dives into your dream zone later on the very same day, setting you up for four weeks of deep introspection and healing. Get some beauty sleep, because before you know it, your own birthday season will arrive!
