Virgo | Horoscope Expert


Aug 23 – Sep 22

You're the heavy today. When everyone else sees all systems go, you have to put up a big, fat red light. It's not that you don't want things to succeed, it's that you see the booby traps others are blind to.

The feeling of accomplishment is resounding on Monday. It reverberates through everything you do. Your recent successes in the office somehow make other people's clothes seem brighter, their smiles more meaningful, the view from your window better. You are ambitious enough that you aren't satisfied yet, yet wise enough to know, especially midweek, that experimentation is the only way you're going to keep learning. Thursday and Friday, resist any urge to be critical of the way others learn. Walk a mile in someone else's work shoes, and all that. Walk into the weekend with virtuous purpose.

Your communication skills shine in August, especially due to your ability to get to the bottom line. The month’s energy enriches your ability to gain support without “fluff talk” (which others use). You deserve an award for the skill that wins support now.

August 2 is a lucky day to hold interviews and conduct meetings. Search and send out resumes under lucky stars. The next day is a lucky Saturday.

On the eleventh, direct Leo Mercury stimulates deep intuition and empathy. Fortunate Jupiter’s direct motion in your foundation-and-roots sign brings the new upon which to build. Innovative Uranus, now retrograde, offers one more chance while helping eliminate challenges, with only a few slight delays in the process.

August marks the Virgo time of year when the inner planets transit your sign. Mars enters Virgo on August 17. It last transited Virgo two and one-half years ago. Think new excitement through new beginnings, if you dare. On the twenty-first, welcome Virgo Venus for beneficial relationships and financial improvements.

On August 23, the Virgo sun means birthday ahead. It’s goal-making time. On the twenty-ninth, Virgo Mercury increases efficiency (could it get any better?)

August 30 is a lucky day, with a Virgo new moon heralding next month’s opportunity to spread your wings.
