There’s a strong emphasis on earth sign Virgo throughout August. Action planet Mars is here all month, the planet of relating Venus is in Virgo up until the 16th, talk planet Mercury is here from the 11th to the 30th and the Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd.
For you, this means not taking on too much or promising more than you can deliver. As a Sun Pisces, this is something you don’t always find easy.
If you’re true to your star sign, you have deep trust and faith in life and you pin your hopes on your dreams and wishes. What you need and sometimes lack is an ability to turn those dreams into reality, to put in the work to ensure they happen.
This is provided by your opposite star sign, Virgo, and we all have the ability to benefit from the positive traits of our opposite sign. Keep your feet on the ground this month, be realistic and pay attention to the details.
Adopt a hard-work ethic if you are busy and look after your mind, body and soul to support you in getting things done. Or, hand everything over to another person, a Virgo type, who can help.
There are some key turning points this month and you’re wise to work with the Moon cycle. On the 8th, there’s a New Moon in Leo, a symbol of new beginnings. Leo rules your work and routine, your lifestyle and health and the Sun’s here until the 22nd.
This is a green light to be proactive in these areas, to launch something new and set your intentions for the month ahead. You have key planets backing you this month, so ensure you have a good team around you. There’s a sense that you can’t do everything on your own and you need support in different areas.
This might include outsourcing, finding a VA or PA, signing up with a coach or advisor or anything else that helps you to feel supported.
There is also a need to be flexible this month and this is because Uranus dominates. Uranus is the planet of change and can be unpredictable. The first week of August, you may need to chop and change your schedule more than usual.
Then, on the 20th, Uranus switches direction. This could coincide with the unexpected, a diversion, a change of plan. In Taurus, Uranus lights up your communication sector, so be ready for power outages or meetings that get cancelled.
Double-check everything, especially around the New Moon, also mid-month. The Full Moon on the 22nd may be a time of completion or culmination and this Full Moon highlights the star signs, Leo and Aquarius.
You often see your situation with clarity during the Full Moon and it’s a good time to trust your intuition. For you, this is especially important with regard to your working life and health.
It’s important to talk about relationships in August as this could be a stunning month for love, especially when you have the planet of love in Virgo and your relationship sector up until the 16th. Plus, Mars is the passion planet and in Virgo all month.
The period between the 19th to the 22nd could be a lively time to meet new people, start dating or be spontaneous when it comes to love and relationships. If you’re already in a relationship, it could be argumentative too.
This is because Uranus is involved. Uranus teams up with talk planet Mercury on the 20th and action planet Mars on the 22nd. The 3rd could also be a stand-out date when Venus unites with Uranus.
Uranus rules spontaneity so be impulsive in your communications. Talk to people you meet, line up an impromptu get-together, call someone out of the blue. Don’t be surprised if other people contact you when you were least expecting it.
The astrology promises a lively vibe for all your close connections. This isn’t a month to go it alone.
Balance & Flow
Mid-month, there’s a shift in planetary energy as the planet of relating Venus enters air sign Libra. This feels more balanced for you and helps restore harmony.
When it comes to your personal and professional relationships, pay attention to the practicalities, deal with money matters and use your people skills to charm and persuade others.
