If you keep doing the same things over and over again, you're not going to learn anything new. So today, you owe it to yourself to mix up your usual routine and delve into some foreign territory. Whether you simply take a different route to work or decide to embark on a whole new career altogether, your day will be a lot more interesting the more you alter your usual method of doing things. Flexibility is something you have to exercise every once in a while, or else you get stuck in a rut.
VirgoAug 23 – Sep 22
Meditation, journaling, attending a sound bath, or enjoying your favorite self-care routine comes easily on August 14 when the confident sun pairs up with romantic Venus in your twelfth house of spirituality. You’re perfectly content to spend time alone, reflecting on and caring for your emotional and mental well-being. This quiet, restorative moment can have you feeling like you’re glowing from the inside out and put you in an even stronger position for hitting professional and personal goals.
Then, while action-oriented Mars is in your sign from August 18 to October 3, it can feel easier to pursue an ambitious health routine. When it comes to sticking to your workout routine or prioritizing your mind-body wellness, you’ve got extra oomph and focus to stay on task—and get the vitality-boosting results you seek.
Your ruler Mercury is finally direct in sensitive Cancer as the month begins, bringing communication issues back to a state of normalcy. If you’ve had misunderstandings with someone in the past several weeks, this is a good time to sincerely apologize or graciously receive an apology from someone else.
Powerful Mars enters your organized sign on August 18, so getting things done is your number one priority. Your take-charge attitude can be intimidating, but you’re just trying to make sure the job gets done and gets done right. Organization is your best friend now.
Romantic Venus also enters your disciplined sign, on the twenty-first, so matters of the heart are very matter of fact and practical. Show a loved one how much they mean to you by washing their car, offering to run errands, or taking in the trash. The more practical the gesture, the more meaningful it is to you.
The sun enters your sign, too, on August 23, ushering in sensible Virgo season. You’re in your element now, and you enjoy putting things in their place, being on time, and making sure your house and office are super clean. Tending to details is what you do best, and you love freeing yourself from (emotional and physical) clutter.
