Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
Observe your dreams this month, as they could offer you clues to help solve challenges in your waking life. In fact, you might want to buy a good dream dictionary or download the Dream Moods app on your phone to decipher those clues. The universe may offer you extra guidance during this time. Since the middle of July, we have had a series of eclipses, which are kind of like super full and new moons. They shake things up emotionally and energetically. The awakenings you receive and the truth revealed at this time can catalyze change in your life. During the two weeks between eclipses, you often have a chance to release anything holding you back from living a fulfilling life. Therefore, receive and act upon guidance. Use your dreams, and glean meaning from everything significant in your waking life, too.
If your work has felt slow or projects have stagnated, be patient. Things will pick up after Mars stations direct on August 27. That message also applies to pending financial deals. If any one thing seems stuck, redirect your focus and prioritize whatever appears to be in the flow. This is especially true at the beginning of the month when your ruling planet (Mercury) is retrograde. It stations direct again on the 18th. Mercury retrograde offers you the chance to rethink some past decisions and maybe turn in a different direction if necessary.
Venus enters your sector of earned income on August 6, and you could receive favorable news about a job opportunity, client, or business deal that day or the day after.
On August 22, the sun enters your sign, and you take the spotlight. How will you better express your talents to the world? Consider committing to a creative project or promoting your work in new ways. If you own your own business, you might design a new marketing strategy. If your birthday falls at the end of the month, you will likely have a year full of adventure and surprises.
The full moon on August 26 highlights your relationship sector. If you are in a partnership, you could come to a clearer understanding of one another and resolve to work through any challenges you’ve faced together. The full moon happens after a series of eclipses (July 12 and 27, and August 11), a period during which you analyze all aspects of your life, including your relationship. This process can seem uncertain and, at times, intense. As that period draws to a conclusion at the end of the month and the sun enters your sign on August 22, you can breathe a huge sigh of relief as you can more clearly see your path forward. If you are single, this is an excellent time to focus on you. Try to make the very most of your alone time before meeting someone new.
