AUGUST 2018

Libra Sun
Libra Rising

The second half of August may hold more challenges than the first half, dear Virgo, so focus on appreciating your health and faculties and get proper rest from early on.

Venus enters Virgo

 

Venus, your ruler, will move into Virgo and your solar 12th House of privacy and seclusion for the remainder of the month. Do something luxuriously restorative for yourself, eat healthful foods, and drink plenty of water and spend time resting and relaxing. Focus on your well being.

 

You’ll have a busier month next month in many ways, and going into it well rested will allow you to navigate September with a greater degree of grace.

 

Sun square Jupiter

 

Career demands may make it difficult to care for your physical body, and with Jupiter currently touring your 1st House you may have noticed a tendency to put on weight–or to have difficulty releasing excess weight–because of it. Days like August 6th are the kind that don’t help matters.

 

Next month you may decide to tackle that more directly, but for now you can focus on the inner work as a way to prepare. Examine your most personal values and beliefs, and see if you can’t identify which come from family programming and replace them with beliefs you choose consciously for yourself–and which better reflect your own desires and values.

Uranus stations retrograde

 

Relationship upsets are possible when Uranus stations retrograde in your 7th House of marriage and partnership on August 7th. Alternatively, your partner could behave rather unpredictably near this date.

 

Matters involving romance could slow for the coming five months, as could progress on creative projects. The slowdown may well benefit you, as you could experience sudden insights which radically alter your plans. You may find it easier to tap into your inner creative genius during this time, but harder to settle on one particular creative direction.

 

Sun conjoins Mercury retrograde

 

Don’t hurt your image or reputation by saying something you really shouldn’t near the the 8th. Be careful with your words.

 

Alternatively, something you said or wrote in the past could come back to bite you near this day, and you may have to do some damage control. Try a sincere apology.

 

You will be more directly affected by this transit if you have a natal planet or personal point at 21 or 22 degrees of sidereal Cancer, so be sure to check your natal chart.

New moon partial solar eclipse in Cancer

 

The new moon solar eclipse in your 10th House of awards and achievement presents an opportunity to take a step toward a major career ambition. Get specific about the outcome you want and spend some time visualizing it as you prepare to take action.

 

Check your sidereal natal chart for planets or personal points at 23 or 24 degrees of a water or earth sign–Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Capricorn, Taurus or Virgo–to see if you will feel the effects of this eclipse directly.

 

Sun enters Leo

 

Your social life will light up when the sun enters Leo on the 17th, dear Libra, just your type of thing. Get out and enjoy yourself–or entertain company at home–now through mid September.

Mercury stations direct

 

Professional talks and career negotiations will make greater progress from the 18th on as Mercury stations direct in your career sector.

 

Expect it to be easier to move forward on solo projects and publishing, broadcasting, educational or international matters, too.

 

Sun trine Saturn-Uranus

 

Get out and do something fun near the 25th–involve a partner, if you have one. Consider a neighborhood barbeque or a getaway to somewhere nearby.

Full moon in Aquarius

 

If you’re the artistic type, put the finishing touches on a creative project with the late August full moon in the days just after the 26th. Alternatively, you could decide you’re ready to take a romantic involvement to the next level.

 

Mars stations direct

 

Finally, Mars will resume direct motion at month’s end, stationing direct August 27th in your home and family sector. Activity in the home is likely to pick up, but irritability and conflict will settle down, especially if you’ve noticed a tendency toward shorter than normal tempers in the past two months.

 

Home projects can now move forward, and you may be more involved with a parent or parents in the coming weeks.
