Happy August, beautiful Virgo. Your season begins this month, and there’s so much to celebrate. Last month, Leo season kept you busy, but you were able to get some rest during the new moon at the end of the month. You are indeed both the healer of the zodiac and the hermit of the zodiac, insinuating that you enjoy alone time and function best when getting enough sleep. But when your ruling planet, messenger Mercury, comes home to your sign on Wednesday, August 3, you feel at full power and are ready to go out and be seen. Your charisma is in full force. With the planet of communication on your side, early August is ideal for applying for new jobs, asking crushes out on dates, and basically asking for everything you want and deserve.
Thursday, August 11, brings a full moon in Aquarius, potentially prompting drama within your friend group. Aquarius is the sign of community, and full moons can leave everyone feeling on edge, which stirs up drama. Tap into your hermit sign and stay in to avoid getting pulled into fights, but don’t be shocked if you end up going separate ways with a social circle or a frenemy type. Remember that any endings are for the best, and sometimes, we have to cut cords with people who bring in negative energy to make room for friends who lift us up.
When the fighter planet Mars enters Gemini, the social butterfly of the zodiac, on Saturday, August 20, you may find yourself having a seriously fun night out with your friends, whether you’re dancing, dining, or just chilling and catching up. This weekend should be so lovely for your social life that you feel confident that any social circle shake-ups that occurred during the full moon were indeed for the best. And, if you thought that was fun, put your organization skills to the test and start planning birthday celebrations because the sun enters Virgo, kicking off your season on Monday, August 22.
For the next few weeks, allow yourself to be a little selfish. As mentioned, you’re considered the healer of the zodiac, and you’re also the person people turn to for advice. However, during Virgo season, make it your goal to kick back and let other people take care of you. You deserve massages and presents from lovers, celebratory calls from friends, and nothing but love. On Wednesday, August 24, the revolutionary planet Uranus retrogrades in Taurus for roughly five months. Your assignment, Virgo, is to let others play the role of the healer. Of course, that doesn’t mean you need to change, but it does mean learning to ask for and accept help when needed. Virgos tend to think they can do it all.
When your ruling planet, Mercury, leaves your sign and enters flirty Libra on Thursday, August 25, get ready for conversations about romantic relationships in and out of the bedroom. For some, that means dating again or exploring fantasies with a long-term partner. Or, it could even mean finally dumping the person who makes you miserable. The end of August sees you getting in touch with your body. When the new moon in your sign, Virgo, darkens the sky on Saturday, August 27, you enjoy sensuality in different ways, whether role-playing with a partner or enjoying a long hot bath alone in peace. Have fun, Virgo, and see you next month.
