Virgo Monthly Horoscope August 2017
Discriminating Virgo starts the month with the Sun in magnanimous Leo, your 12th house of secrets, sorrows and hidden motivations. It is that time of year when you start to wind down and become quite introspective. Don’t worry. Your current personal year is ending and your energy levels are preparing you for a new solar year, which starts on the 22nd. Within the wake of this month, the 7th sees a Full Moon and partial Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius, your 6th solar house of work and health. Then August 21st sees a New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Leo, which again will affect issues governed by your 12th house. Mercury, your planetary ruler, is set to go retrograde on the 13th, when you will need to rethink your personal needs and future plans. These are discussed in more detail later in this forecast. Meanwhile bold Mars remains in the background with conditions that are more than frustrating in the short term.
With that in mind, you will seek to conserve your pace of activity. It’s time to retreat and spend time on your own, going about other business. Your compassionate side awakens, helping friends and those in need in some way. A partner’s health, or a work or health issue could be troubling you. Limitations and fears could rise to the surface, so you will need to face the bare truth of circumstances — or face reality. Try to be positive about future outcomes and do not bury yourself beneath a set of preconceived doubts. At the same time your spiritual values and beliefs may awaken as you take an interest in deeper philosophical and religious meanings. From the 10th to the 12th, financial benefits could come your way outside normal sources. Review your values regarding possessions and security needs. From the 13th to the 15th, the focus turns to your home front, older family members and traditional principles. Others may have to deal with real estate, and property issues. From the 16th to the 18th, conditions or significant people from the past could awaken your spirituality and memories.
The Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse on the 7th occurs in inventive Aquarius, influencing your 6th house of work and health. For the month of August, it is known as the Sturgeon Moon, a name given by native American tribes because they knew that the sturgeon (a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water) were most readily caught during this phase. It is also known as the Harvest Moon, Fruit Moon, Green Corn Moon, Grain Moon, Blueberry Moon, and the Full Red Moon because as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze.
This Full Moon and partial Lunar Eclipse will see you working hard to improve your personal income, and you could very well succeed. It’s a topsy-turvy situation where you could lose money through speculation, so pay greater attention to detail at this time, as Mercury is set to go retrograde on August 13th. Your plans may not come to fruition till after September 20th. Inner frustrations will arise. Resentment, anger and emotional dramas will be difficult to restrain. Set about rebuilding your physical energy. You’ll be pretty much involved with work behind the scenes. Job changes could be imminent, so keep clear of office gossip and secrets being revealed. Promote good public relations, dear Virgo. Improve your work relationships and your ability to be of service to others. Health issues could arise, so stay mentally focused on being positive. Regroup your thoughts.
The 21st sees a New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in regal Leo, your 12th house of secrets, sorrows and subconscious motivations. It will be a time of circumspection, urging you to rebuild your emotional and physical energy. However, work is needed on the domestic scene, pushing you to spend more time sorting through family business matters. Not only that, but you will work towards increasing your personal income. Review your values and possessions. This Solar Eclipse could stir up emotions from the past, so avoid bitterness and blaming others for your predicament. Being infuriated won’t help in alleviating your inner source of irritability. It will also be a spiritual time. Look at ways of reducing anxiety through meditation, charity work, helping those in hospital, the elderly or those in need of care.
On the 22nd, the Sun moves out of Leo and into Virgo, the sign ruling your 1st house of personality. Over the coming weeks, you will experience a new level of drive and vitality. As the Sun enters your sign you’ll be better equipped to take control of your personal needs and bring about changes, especially those born at the end of Virgo. An urge for independence arises, with thoughts of travel and foreign destinations in the air. There are still things happening in the background, but you will be in a better position to take the driver’s seat and prepare yourself for a new solar year. Mercury is retrograde, so decisions and plans will need fine tuning before you make final decisions. In the meanwhile review your personal needs, jot down your ideas and release a new level of vigour.
Thoughtful Mercury, your planetary ruler, remains in Virgo, your 1st house of personality. There will be plenty on your mind over the coming weeks, avenues of concepts and directions you would like to take. Confusion and false interpretations could easily occur as the Cosmic Prankster turns retrograde on the 13th. Make sure you understand agreements and legal contracts. Your mind will be full of expressive thoughts, wit and charm and you’ll be very analytical with your approach. However, the rush to speak first and think later could result in saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, causing misunderstandings with others. You may have to be accountable during September so hold back on impulsive words and actions. On the 31st, Mercury briefly retrogrades into bombastic Leo, your 12th house, when you will keep most things to yourself. Don’t worry unnecessarily. On September 5th, Mercury turns direct in Leo before re-entering Virgo on the 10th. Be thorough with information, and read through all documents carefully, as confusion and cloudy thinking is in the air from September 19th to the 21st when Mercury opposes deceptive Neptune. But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. Mercury will be out of the shadow phase on September 20th just at the New Moon in Virgo and as Venus enters your 1st house. Yippee!
Goddess Venus remains in kindly Cancer, your 11th house of friends, hopes and wishes. This is a good time to socialise and be part of the scene with friends and groups. Most relationships are amicable with the hint of romantic attraction and fun times. Promote harmony and cooperate with those who may be hard to please. Enjoy the interaction at get togethers, events and parties. Your relationship with your partner’s children could excel too. From the 15h to the 26th, you’ll be looking for excitement as your emotions and sensuality may be difficult to control, but it takes two to tango. Avoid being excessively jealous and possessive within love relationships, with children and friends.
On the 26th, the Goddess steps into Leo, your 12th house. You’ll have a big heart when it comes to being self-sacrificing and helping others. An old romantic flame or someone from your past could revive long-lost sensitive feelings. You could join a charitable organisation, or a secret society. Deal with charities, hospitals and institutions. Maybe there is a foster pet to take care of, a creative project you could dabble in, or just relax and surround yourself with music.
Rebuild Your Energy
Bold Mars remains in Leo, your 12th house of secrets and sorrows, for the rest of the month. Your energy may feel limited in the short term, waiting for things to happen. Your reservoir of energy needs to be rebuilt for next month, when it will be full steam ahead. In the meanwhile, work on your inner irritations, sub-conscious responses and anger management. It is not the easiest time, but if you can work on your own and sort out those demons that seem to stop you at the door by bringing up fears and self-devaluation, it will be worth it. Be patient, learn from your past lessons and use this valuable time for self-development or meditation. From the 18th to the 23rd, you may have dealings with the law, hospitals, finance organisations, or places or confinement. Anyway there will be business to conduct. From the 24th to the 29th, there may be a karmic link that emerges leading to a strong connection either in love or dislike. Secrets could also seep to the surface. This however, is not set in concrete, for it depends on your individual chart. The Solar Eclipse will determine your next move over the coming months.
