Star Of The Show
August is traditionally Leo season but it’s your star sign Virgo that’s the star of the show. This means that August could turn out to be a great month for you and fulfil you on a personal level.
Action planet Mars is in your star sign all month, great for getting fit and being active. Mars has a ‘just do it’ vibe. Plus, your ruling planet Mercury is in Virgo from the 11th to the 30th and the Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd.
This is lively astrology so you could be in for a busy month. Perhaps, you’re winning over and schmoozing everyone with your stories. Or, you’re leaping into action finding where you can help and be of service to others.
Everyone may want a piece of you, in a good way. You’re either popular, in demand or the person everybody needs, for one reason or another.
Get ready for a whoosh of planetary activity that could mean August rushes by in a haze of activity. If you want to boost your image or profile or further a personal goal or aim, this is the time to make it happen. It’s rocket-turboed full-on planetary action, especially with Mars in Virgo switching things up a gear.
New Moon Leo
This remains Leo season and the Sun is in Leo until the 22nd. Plus, your ruler Mercury is here until the 11th.
Leo represents the most hidden and personal sector of your horoscope. It’s about what happens on the inside. This might be linked to your spiritual path or inner concerns or issues.
The first week of August could be a time when you’re questioning a lot. What’s possible and what’s not. There could be work or health issues. Or, perhaps you’re fed up of travel restrictions and not being able to do what you want.
The turning point is likely to be the New Moon in Leo on the 8th. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings and a good time to set your intentions.
There’s a sense of progress at the New Moon, a chance to move things forward. Whatever you need to sort out personally, it’s the time to get moving.
Leo is the star sign that’s ruled by the Sun so it represents vitality and energy. In early August, do whatever’s needed to recharge your batteries and boost your energy. It would be an ideal time to a take trip into your past or go somewhere you’ve never been before.
Although, you might discover where you want to be when you find yourself in the wrong place. This is because you have Uranus, the planet of the unexpected, currently in Taurus and your travel and study sector. Uranus is active during the New Moon and switches direction on the 20th.
This means you’re wise to be super flexible, especially when it comes to the bigger picture. This could bring out your rebel tendencies and your craving for freedom too.
Full Moon Aquarius
The Full Moon on the 22nd is likely to be a significant turning point after Uranus switches direction. Uranus teams up with Mercury and Mars in Virgo on the 20th & 22nd. Plus, there’s a Mercury-Mars conjunction on the 19th, an ideal date to walk your talk.
Trust your intuition during the Full Moon. Events could prove pivotal, whether this is linked to your work, your lifestyle or your wish to be of service to others.
Note that this Full Moon is a repeat of the Full Moon on July 24th as it cuts across the same sectors of your horoscope – Leo/Aquarius. You might have a second chance on this Full Moon or perhaps events come full circle.
A Lighter Vibe
Things do lighten up considerably from mid-month onwards. On the 16th, the planet of relating Venus enters Libra, one of the social air signs. It’s a good time to find your allies and create strong alliances in your life.
This is important if it benefits you financially. It’s an ideal time to create balance and harmony in your life, especially if you’re frantically busy at times this month.
Finally, when Venus is in Virgo up until the 16th, this could be promising for your love life. The stand out date is the 3rd when anything goes. Show off your considerable charms and let someone know you care about them.
