Virgo gets the emotional tug to venture off into the unknown, with adventure, travel and advanced study in mind. Up to the 15th, the cosmos places more focus on your home front, older family members and traditional principles. You may have to deal with real estate and property issues. Then from the 15th to the 26th, you'll be looking for excitement. Your emotions and sensuality may be difficult to control, but it takes two to tango. Avoid being excessively jealous and possessive within love relationships, or with children and friends. The 16th to the 18th sees conditions or significant people from the past that could awaken your spirituality and memories. From the 18th to the 23rd, you may have dealings with the law, hospitals, finance organisations, or places of confinement. Anyway there will be business to conduct.
Mercury, your planetary-ruler, remains retrograde in your sign causing confusion about new ideas and plans to undertake. Put any major decisions on hold until next month, when you will have a clearer idea of where you are heading.
Then August 21st sees a New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in Leo, which will affect issues governed by your 12th solar house, the house of secrets. You'll delve into the past, resurrecting and dealing with fears. Why not spend some time helping those in need, in hospitals or institutions? More on this next week.
