Virgo \ July
(August 23rd– September 22nd)
Virgos always take control of a situation, unless there is someone stronger and wiser for them to surrender to. A Virgo doesn’t want to be in control, but their need to have order and reduce chaos often drives them to take the reins. Unfortunately, the more control they take the less in control they feel. It is in Virgo where power is divided or seen as worldly or spiritual. If our Virgo has faith, they’ll learn to turn their problems over and receive help from the universe. If they don’t believe in a higher power then they will easily become overwhelmed from worry and responsibility.
With the Sun in Cancer, friendships and your social life are emphasized. With the Sun in a grand trine to Jupiter and Neptune you may finally let go and dance on top of the table with new and old friends cheering you on. Whatever you do now creates a feeling of comradery. If you’ve contemplated joining a club – do it. Social connections are an important part of success. The more people you know, the more information you receive and opportunities you have to get ahead. It’s easy to get in the door when you know someone on the other side.
With Mars in retrograde, transiting your 6th house of work, your schedule is changing and the work you have to do is not getting done. Mars retrograde is both energizing your projects and creating problems. There are either missing pieces or missing people. The square to Uranus creates frustration and anger. Don’t do anything drastic, but if you’ve wanted to change your job, or just reorganize it, now is the time to begin. If you work for yourself, you will still be faced with changes you can’t control. You love diversity and you will still be able to juggle the jobs you love, but its more challenging. You hate feeling as if you’re not in control. So just get over the fact that you can’t be in charge of what is still evolving. Let go and look around you, everyone else feels the same way you do. It’s just the way things are.
If you’re in a relationship, things should be going well. There’s a grand trine that should make this part of your life easy. There’s a wonderful balance between romance, attention, strength and support. If you can’t access this positive energy, then you’re dealing with past mistakes that are still unresolved. If you’re single, it’s a great month to fall in love – even meet your soul mate, so do get out there and enjoy your social life.
Mercury goes retrograde on the 26thin your 12th house of the unknown. It goes direct on August 19th. During this time people from your past may appear. You may find that communication is difficult or it’s unreliable. In fact, getting any new project to advance is a challenge. If you have to sign a contract, of course, go ahead and do it. However, if you can wait until Mercury goes direct there will be less changes and surprises as you move forward.
