Virgo (8/23 - 9/23)
During the first few weeks of this month, you’ll benefit from some time alone to enjoy solitary creative pursuits. The Leo Sun will illuminate your 12th house of spirituality and the subconscious through August 21st, making it a good time to reconnect with your inner wisdom and heart’s desire. On August 22nd, the Sun will move into your Sun Sign, and you may find yourself in high demand.
This month, you’re slated for realizations that can help you to integrate more of your spirituality into your daily routine. You’ll likely be inspired to live your values with more consistency. Focus on reinstating successful habits that you may have abandoned. It won’t be good timing to start new routines, as Mercury will be retrograde from August 12th to September 5th.
During the first days of August, we’ll already be in the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon, which discourages initiating action. With Mercury, your ruling planet, in retrograde through your 1st house of self, this will be a powerful time for self-reflection. Consider this time to be an opportunity to do some internal “housekeeping.” How can you better organize the use of your time and energy?
Just when Uranus reaches the final degrees of Aries, it will station retrograde on August 3rd, prolonging its journey through this sign until mid-May of 2018. (However, it will dip back into Aries briefly November 2018 - early March 2019.) When Uranus goes retrograde this month, you’ll have access to your subconscious ideas—it could be a productive time for your creativity. Your intimate relationships will also be a focus, and you may be seeking more individuality and personal freedom within a partnership.
In the coming months, you’ll have the opportunity to reconnect with your inner innovator. How can you reinvent yourself and the agreements you’ve made with others so that you are living in alignment with your passion and inspiration? Ponder these questions now, and by the time Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, you’ll probably have learned some of the answers.
This month, we’ll experience two Eclipses that will offer powerful realizations and the inspiration for new beginnings. The Lunar Eclipse on August 7th will activate your 12th house of spirituality and the subconscious as well as your 6th house of daily work and wellness. You’re being called to pay attention to your mind-body connection at this time. Notice how your thoughts affect your energy levels and make an effort to send yourself positive, uplifting messages.
On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo will initiate endings and beginnings related to your values and belief systems. Because Mercury will be retrograde, focus on what you need to release from your life at this time. A part of you will be waking up to your hidden talents, dreams, and creative passions. This is an excellent time to work on releasing subconscious blocks to your success such as fear, limiting beliefs, and lack of faith. You’re in store for a spiritual and psychological transformation that will fortify you to begin on a new path after mid-September, when the Mercury retrograde energy clears.
