The inner planets are lined up in the earth sign Virgo this month. Action planet Mars is in Virgo all month, the planet of relating Venus is here until the 16th, talk planet Mercury is in Virgo from the 11th to the 30th and the Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd.
Virgo represents one of the trickier sectors of your horoscope. On the one hand, this is about financial transactions and shared resources. On the other hand, it represents all that’s hidden, including fear and taboo issues.
Shift Your Mindset
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of the mind, so take care that you don’t allow your mind to take over. If you are going through a challenging time, take charge and do what you can to restore order.
Writing things down or journalling could be helpful. Or, make a list of the things that need to be done if you’re feeling overwhelmed. Fear isn’t always easy to deal with.
Do what you can to move away from a fearful attitude towards hope and faith and a belief that things will turn out well in the end. It might help to be diligent about taking on good practices or rituals, including prayer, gratitude and exercises that can help to shift your mindset.
Yet, with astrology, the symbolism doesn’t play out the same way for everyone. For some of you, the host of planets in Virgo could coincide with good money moves. You might be selling a property that creates more cash flow. Or, join forces with family to make your resources go further.
As Virgo is one of the earth signs, this could include harvesting food from an allotment or similar. Certainly, it’s a good time to be resourceful and look at what you can create or produce that benefits you or that you can sell on.
Sometimes, money comes your way unexpectedly when you have key planets in this sector of your horoscope.
Plus, your co-ruler Uranus is in action throughout the month. Admittedly, the first week of August could prove tricky when you feel out of sorts or stuck between warring factions or two impossible situations.
Uranus switches direction on the 20th and teams up with action planet Mars and talk planet Mercury. The period from the 19th to the 22nd promises excitement.
These are positive planetary aspects on the whole that could spring surprises or bring the unexpected in a good way. This links property and home in your horoscope, so there may be swift developments in these areas.
Family too are pulled into the planetary picture, whether you’re sharing resources with family or helping one another out.
You could decide to move in with a partner, set up a joint bank account, sign a contract or start a joint venture that’s lasting. Focus on your financial future to create a more secure way of life.
New Moon/Full Moon
Also this month, the Sun is in your opposite star sign Leo until the 22nd and is joined by talk planet Mercury until the 11th. Leo rules your relationships, both personal and professional.
For some of you, this could be a gorgeous month for love. The New Moon in Leo on the 8th is a symbol of new beginnings. This could bring someone new into your life. Or, there’s a chance to start over and turn a fresh page.
Admittedly, your planet Uranus is quite lively during the New Moon period and you may be the one throwing a spanner in the works. Notice whether you’re feeling extra impulsive around this New Moon.
The Full Moon on the 22nd could prove to be a highlight as it falls in your star sign Aquarius. This is about about finding yourself through your relationship with other people.
Someone may act as a mirror helping you to see yourself more clearly or reveal deeper aspects within you. Full Moons are gorgeous for celebration and partying and enjoying life to the full.
This is the second Full Moon in your star sign as there was a Full Moon in Aquarius on July 24th. You may get a second chance now or find that events come full circle.
This Full Moon pulls in lucky Jupiter which is back in your star sign. If you’re born on February 17th/18th, this could prove spectacular for you. Either way, trust your luck and make the most of any new opportunities.
The Bigger Picture
Life may start to feel easier after the 16th. This is the day when lovely Venus moves into Libra, a fellow air sign. Finally, you’re back in the realm of logic and rationality when you can work things out strategically, rather than having to rely on intuition or be caught up in your emotions.
Libra rules travel and study in your horoscope, the bigger picture of life. You may be raising funds for a new adventure or to help out with a good cause.
The second half of the month is an ideal time to expand your horizons and increase your knowledge. Stimulate your curiosity in life and step out of your routine. Actively engage with people and events that are different and inspiring.
Do whatever takes your fancy; do your bit for society and the world or go and experience distant horizons. Love too could be part of the picture and the reason why you’re ready to spread your wings.
