When you get up this morning, you may think you should expect just more of the same old same old, from your workday – but nothing could be farther from the truth. Someone who's quite far from routine, monotonous or ordinary will be along to throw some fireworks your way – fireworks of the most interesting kind. Just for the heck of it, wear something a tad flashier than you usually do.
VirgoAug 23 – Sep 22
You'll want to rush ahead on Monday, but you can't. Obligations and obstacles block your way as the week begins, and you'll need to just go with the flow. On Tuesday and Wednesday, all that hard work and planning you did will finally pay off. Your ambitions will be satisfied right now – in your work and maybe even in your love life. On Thursday and Friday, you might need to take a new approach. Keep an open mind and consider conducting an unusual experiment. This weekend, you'll need to make peace with other people's pace – no amount of heckling will hurry them up.
When your ruler Mercury sits opposite powerful Mars on July 5, tension could be the result. You may not mean to be argumentative, but people’s strong reactions are evidence that you could be taking things a bit too far.
Mercury squares retrograde Jupiter on the ninth, making you a tad overconfident. It’s great that you have conviction in your words, but you’ll have a hard time getting your point across if people are turned off by your attitude.
The moon is in your practical sign on July 15 and July 16, so you keep your emotions in check even more than usual. You aren’t the most demonstrative person, but you show people how much you care about them with your actions. To you, programming a remote for your parents or fixing the broken sink for your partner is the equivalent of saying “I love you.”
When the sun squares quirky Uranus on the twenty-fifth, you’re forced to deal with unexpected changes. You’re a mutable sign, so you aren’t really that shaken, but you don’t like to stray too far outside your comfort zone either. Keep an open mind as you navigate the new and changing landscape.
