You’re entering a very special time, Virgo. Since last August beneficial Jupiter has been in your sign, helping you make changes in all areas of your life. What’s important is that you plant the seeds of change while Jupiter is in this house, which will be over in early September. If you’ve been dragging your feet or been waiting for your “luck to change”, get off your duff and start strategizing. The cosmos will help you if you’re willing to put in some effort, and that’s what’s required right now.
Your best day this week to get in touch with your dreams is Sunday, when the Sun and Mercury in your big plans sector form magnificent angles with lucky Jupiter and let’s-get-it-done Mars. It’s also an auspicious time to run some of your ideas past a close confidante, as friends can really be of help to you. One or two words of advice in the friend department, however—steer clear of entering into business partnerships with a buddy, as they are not favored now, especially if there is an outlay of cash necessary. Also, “friends with benefits” are not the smartest kinds of relationships to be involved in. Right now, a friend should be just that—a friend, nothing more. This energy is especially strong on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.
Your life may have been quite social lately, courtesy of Mars barreling through your third house of camaraderie, but Venus and Mercury begin to slide quietly into your reclusive twelfth house this week. Venus makes her move on Tuesday, followed by Mercury on Wednesday. Now is the time to start working behind the scenes on any big plans and passion projects that have been on the top of your list over the past year. When the Sun enters Leo next week on the 22nd, you’ll be even more inclined to work in solitude.
This could be anything from a major weight loss program, to finding a new lover, to developing a patent. The twelfth house is the most intuitive part of your chart, so pay close attention to your dreams and gut hunches. Sometimes in life it’s smart to enlist the help of someone, such as a writing partner or an exercise buddy. They hold you accountable and you can often achieve more this way. But when the twelfth house is lit up, it’s time to work alone or with a very small, trusted group of advisers.
If you need to have a heart to heart talk with a lover, your best day is Thursday, when Mars and Uranus form an excellent angle. Words may flow that you weren’t expecting. It’s also possible that you’ll need to readjust the way you communicate and work with a lover (for example, more compromise or quality time). Singles, you could meet a soulful stranger today in a serendipitous manner. Don’t stay home!
By the time the weekend rolls around, you’re definitely going to be ready for some quiet and restful down time. This isn’t a weekend for dancing on tabletops and going to a rager of a party. If anything, it’s perfect for chilling at home, or just spending some meaningful time with a close friend or lover. Popcorn and movies on the TV, a slow brunch (with mimosas) on Sunday morning—that’s the ticket!
