Your ruling planet Mars is in earth sign Virgo all month which requires a hard-work ethic, a ‘head down, bum up’ attitude.
As soon as August begins, this is the ideal time to tweak your routine, add some healthy habits to your lifestyle and focus on getting things done.
Order & Efficiency
Virgo is the sign of order so it’s an excellent month for tidying and sorting and bringing form and structure to your life. If you’re a list-maker, crack on. If you like spreadsheets to show how you’re doing, create a new one.
This is the ideal time to analyse and strategise and ensure you’re getting the results you want. As a fire sign, you’re great at leaping into something new. You’re not always as efficient at seeing things through to completion or checking out what’s working and what’s not.
Also, if you’re true to your star sign, you fare best when you’re physically strong and this is an excellent month to hone your fitness and boost your health.
It would be a good time to train for a physical challenge or incorporate regular exercise in to your routine. Think about your eating habits too and whether you want to try something new.
Teamwork & Partnership
Also this month, it’s a good idea to find your allies and team up with other people. The planet of relating Venus is in Virgo until the 16th and communication planet Mercury is here too from the 11th to the 30th.
Working alongside other people will be more enjoyable than going it alone. You’re an independent soul by nature but teamwork is not only fun but more effective too.
The Sun’s move into Virgo on the 22nd confirms that this is a month to pay close attention to your work & routine, your lifestyle & health.
There may be another reason why work is foreground this month and that’s money. Uranus, the planet of the unexpected, is currently in Taurus and your personal money sector.
Uranus connects with key planets in Virgo on the 3rd, 20th & 22nd. This includes your ruling planet Mars on the last date. Trust your luck on or around these key dates.
This could be another reason why work is prominent, because it brings financial reward. Alternatively, there’s a theme of being of service to others.
Fire Sign Fun
August is traditionally Leo season and the Sun is shining bright in your fellow fire sign until the 22nd. Talk planet Mercury is here until the 11th and there’s a stunning New Moon in Leo on the 8th.
New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings, a chance to start over and turn to a fresh page. They are ideal for setting your intentions, being pro-active in life and moving forward. This New Moon could herald the birth of a child, the start of a gorgeous love affair, a prize, a gift, a unique moment in your life.
Leo rules a lucky sector of your horoscope, also romance, children and pregnancy, entertainment, creative projects and social get-togethers.
There is a proviso, however, because during the New Moon, there’s a clash with Uranus, the planet of change and surprises. Plus, Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus on the 20th and this may coincide with some financial ups and downs.
Think freedom when it comes to money and reconsider what security means to you. Be prepared for the unexpected financially but also know that you could win big.
Uranus is rarely stable and steady. Instead, it’s a planet that has a roller-coaster theme and you’re wise to be flexible and adaptable around money matters.
Full Moon Aquarius
There’s a second Full Moon in Aquarius on the 22nd and there are repeat themes to the Full Moon on July 24th.
This Full Moon is a perfect date for a celebration, catching up with old or new friends and reconnecting with children. Big planet Jupiter is involved, also in Aquarius, a symbol of a large gathering or fun event.
As your partner planet Venus is in Libra by this point and your relationship sector – it moves here on the 16th – there’s more than one nod towards this potentially being a romantic month for you.
