Virgo August Horoscope

Venus, your financial planet, is having her solstice this month, from the 16th to the 19th. She pauses in the heavens (in latitude) and then changes direction. This is likely to happen in your financial affairs: a pause and then a change of direction. This is nothing to be alarmed about. Venus does this twice a year. This is a pause that refreshes.

Mercury, the ruler of your Horoscope (and your career planet) follows suit from the 28th to the 30th. He will pause in the heavens and then change direction. This signals a pause and change of direction in the career and personal life. Basically, it is a good thing.

The Eastern sector of your chart began to strengthen back in May, and this month the planets have reached their maximum Eastern position. You are in your maximum point of personal independence now. (The Western, social sector is still strong, but the East is as strong as it will be this year.) This is the time to make the changes in your life that need to be made for your happiness. You can’t totally dispense with others, but you can exercise more independence. The month ahead is about balancing strong personal desires with the desires of others.

Retrograde activity increases even further this month. Half the planets are in retrograde motion after the 20th. So, patience, patience, patience is called for. Understanding astrology – understanding what’s going on cosmically – will be a big help. There’s nothing wrong with you. You haven’t been cursed. It is just that 50 per cent of the planets are moving backwards. It’s not your fault.

Yes, glitches and delays will be happening, but in spite of this, it’s a happy and prosperous month. On the 23rd the Sun enters your 1st house and you begin one of your personal pleasure peaks. The pleasures of the senses – good food and wine, massages and other sensual delights – await you. Health is good. Perhaps more importantly, you look good as well. There is more sex appeal, charisma and glamour to the image. You have more confidence and self-esteem. You’re basically having things your way. (At least more so than in previous months.)

Finances will be good this month. Until the 16th Venus is in your sign, which is excellent. Money and financial opportunity seek you out. There’s nothing special that you need to do. After the 16th, Venus moves into the money house – her own sign and house – and she is powerful here. Earnings should be strong.
