Welcome to August, Virgo! Your season approaches. At the end of July, when horny Mars entered your sign, your sex life got hot enough to make all of your exes jealous. Now, August brings even more exciting news for your love life. To start, on Sunday, August 8, there’s a dark new moon in bold Leo. During this night, expect a romantic relationship to move to the next level. Perhaps you discuss moving in together, try a new role-playing scene in bed, or, if you’re single, explore your body with a new sex toy. You like to be productive, Virgo, so remember that orgasms are self-care!
Your ruling planet, messenger Mercury, enters your sign on Wednesday, August 11. Both at work and in love, communication becomes direct, fact-based, and efficient. If there are any tough conversations, such as whether or not to make a relationship official, now is the time to have them. You’re a wonderful orator, but others will feel the effects of this transit too, and, as a result, may be more inclined to listen and respond respectfully.
On Thursday, August 16, Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and money enters flirty Libra and lights up your 2nd House of Possessions. Circle this date in your calendar, because the stars suggest that money is likely coming your way. Perhaps you get a raise, a new gig, or even an unexpected inheritance. Knowing you, Virgo, you’ll stash away any new cash responsibly, but make sure to treat yourself to at least one tiny thing you’ve had on your wish list for a bit.
Independent Uranus goes retrograde on Thursday, August 19 in sensual Taurus. It will be retrograde until Friday, January 14. During this planet’s retrograde, life can actually get calmer. We may more stable and less predictable, and it’s a great time to plant roots. This could mean more intensity in your romantic life, or even taking steps to move in together if you discussed it with a partner earlier in the month. Take a moment to appreciate the calm. Creating a comfortable home is important, so if you feel like you’re moving in the right direction, embrace it with gratitude.
Get excited, because your season starts on Sunday, August 22. It’s time to be bold — no playing coy allowed. Celebrate yourself however feels right. It can be low-key and safe, like a small dinner party, or a picnic in the park, but make sure to see friends. You deserve it, and frankly, so does your friend group. If you’re looking for the perfect party night, the full moon in Aquarius, which also falls on Sunday, August 22, will have everyone in touch with their primal nature and ready to let loose.
August comes to an end (but don’t worry, Virgo season continues through September) when your ruling planet, communicator Mercury, enters Libra, the sign of relationships on Monday, August 30. The start of the month saw you having hard but important relationship conversations, and this transit brings the fruit of your labor. Now that you’ve gotten the tough talks out of the way, your conversations with crushes or lovers can change to what’s for dinner and which sex toy you feel like using tonight. You deserve all of the love, so soak it in, and see you next month!
