Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
For everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
- Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
Remember this passage throughout the month when you feel any lack of momentum. There are times of high productivity and times to conserve your energy. Your ruling planet stations retrograde on July 25, initiating a time to pause, reflect, and take care of some personal matters. If you know that going into the month, you can designate time accordingly and avoid worry or frustration. After all, there will be a time for work and activity soon after the retrograde.
The Solar Eclipse on July 12 highlights your social life. This would be an excellent time to host a party, family reunion, or gather friends for a dinner party. At the beginning of the month, you might feel led to volunteer to help a cause or contribute to an organization. Another way to give back is to mentor or teach. You will receive intangible (and tangible) rewards for anything you do to become more involved in your community at this time.
Between the solar eclipse on July 12 and the lunar eclipse on July 27, the intensity builds, and you might want to shake things up in your life. However, this month is not a great time act on impulse, especially in your relationships. Instead, it’s a time to gather information and make a strategic plan for moving forward in new ways. Venus helps with romance after July 9 as it enters your sign. Your confidence gets a boost, and that could help you attract someone special into your life if you are single and ready for love.
