Virgo (23 August-22 September)
Happy birthday, Virgo! As the month begins, the Sun is in your own sign where it remains until the 23rd. Of course, to be completely accurate, the Sun has been in your sign of Virgo since August 23rd and the New Moon in your sign on August 25th picked you out as the one to watch.
It’s always a good month when the Sun’s in your sign as long as you focus on you and put your own wants and needs first or at least higher up the list. Concentrate less on others now and bear in mind your own personal ambitions and look after no. 1. Not only the Sun but Lady Love Venus is also in your sign this month from the 5th-29th. This is an indication that you’re more popular than usual and other people enjoy being around you. The more happy and confident you are, the more it rubs off on others and the feel-good vibe spreads far and wide.
Venus is the planet of relating and when Venus is in your sign you often find it easier to attract others to you. This is great news if you’re looking for love and the 14th and 21st are lovely dates to meet someone new who’s a real contender. Being one of the earth signs, you don’t want a fly-by-night type but rather a partner who’s reliable and steady and someone you can trust.
Having someone there to talk things through, to chat about your day or simply to keep you company can be wonderfully supportive and if you’re not in a relationship or married, then ensure you have people close to you who play a similar role.
Love and relationships are especially romantic now with Neptune in your opposite sign of Pisces which adds a dreamy quality to love. However, it’s important to recognise that Neptune is the planet of illusion and you may be more prone to looking at someone close through rose-coloured glasses. Use your Virgo antennae for facts and analysis to sort the wheat from the chaff and if you need to ask those important questions, do so in order to put your heart at rest.
The key dates for love and relationships this month are the 9th and 10th when there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Virgo/Pisces axis and Lady Love Venus is opposed by Neptune on the 10th. This can be super-romantic and some of you will be wafted away on a voyage of discovery but it’s also a time when emotions run high. One way or another, you are being urged to see a relationship for what it is and not to let anyone pull the wool over your eyes.
This applies to all key one-to-one relationships, both personal and professional, and if you suspect that someone isn’t being honest with you, mid-month is a good time to find out for sure. Ask the right questions to receive the answers you need whether the end result is you feeling let down or you’re heartened to know that your romance is a case of happy ever after. The Full Moon experience is different for everyone but an important chance to get your facts straight and sort out where you stand when it comes to love and relationships.
Your ruling planet Mercury is lighting up your money sector as it’s in the sign of Libra from the 2nd-27th. So get busy on the money front and arrange meetings, an interview or key negotiations to sort out your cash and ensure you know where your money’s coming from. Mercury’s a lively influence and as you’re Mercury-ruled, wherever your planet is in your chart, this is what you enjoy talking about and where you’re wise to put your energy.
The tricky period with regard to cash is from the 9th-13th when Mercury clashes with the Uranus-Pluto square. This may seem like a case of ‘same old, same old’ and you probably have been here before. It’s an ongoing issue whether your finances seem to be unpredictable or you’re worried about spending money that you haven’t got. If this involves another individual in your life, especially a child or a lover, have a heart-to-heart and be open to listening carefully.
On some level, there’s an indication you need to have faith and trust that things will turn out alright in the end. On the 24th there’s a New Moon in Libra, a symbol of new beginnings and the chance to make a fresh start. Plus the following day, there’s a stunning Jupiter-Uranus trine in the heavens that suggests a stroke of luck.
Look out for someone who’s willing to help you out or gift you in some way or for a sudden change that frees you up financially. This symbol can play out in different ways but it’s linked to self-belief, trusting your instincts and letting life step in to guide you and lead the way. It could be the break you’ve been waiting for.
Finally this month, Mars, the action planet, enters your home and family sector on the 13th and it’s these areas of your life that are linked to the lucky aspect between Jupiter and Uranus. Whether you can make money from your home or a home move or your family helps you out or someone from your past repays a favour, matters close to home hold the missing piece of the puzzle.
