Having a healthy debate with a person you don't usually connect with very well should be a goal for you today. This type of discussion can challenge your intellect and offer you a great deal of satisfaction—whether you end up winning the argument or not. So do not be afraid to ruffle a few feathers today. Start a conversation about a controversial topic. Sometimes, the best conversations are the ones you have with someone who totally disagrees with you.
SagittariusNov 22 – Dec 21
Heading out on a road trip or planning an adrenaline-pumping date night (think rock climbing or an amusement park) could be all you’ve been dreaming of on August 14, when the confident sun pairs up with romantic Venus in your ninth house of adventure. Giving into your desires now can boost chemistry with your love or, if you’re unattached, lead you to someone exciting.
Around August 15, when the full moon is in your third house of communication, your list of everyday tasks, chores, and urgent messages to respond to might feel never-ending. The energy of the moment makes it easy to get overwhelmed by everything on your plate, but taking a deep breath and then taking it all once step at a time is your best bet.
Breathe a sigh of relief as the complications brought on by Mercury retrograde are lifted now that this chatty planet is direct in sensitive Cancer. This is a good time to have a heart-to-heart chat with someone you’ve felt disconnected from lately.
Lucky Jupiter goes direct on August 11, giving you time to thank your lucky stars. What are the things you’ve been taking for granted lately? This is a great time to start a gratitude journal or write thank-you notes to the people who’ve made a difference in your life.
It isn’t the most comfortable pairing when loving Venus enters rigid Virgo on the twenty-first, mostly because romance can get lost in this transit’s sensible energy. It’s not that the magic is gone; it’s just covered up with schedules and details. Find time to connect with people on a human level amid the practicality.
The sun also enters Virgo, on August 23, so be sure to take advantage of the hardworking energy it puts out over the next month. Cleaning, purging, and tidying up are this transit’s forte, and you can probably use it, right? You aren’t known for keeping the tidiest of living spaces, so surprise the people you live with by doing a complete top-to-bottom purge and cleanse!
