There is a lot more movement and a lot less pressure this month and this means there will be more confidence and also more variety. Venus and Mercury, the planets that rule the head and heart are both recovering from retrograde phases, with Venus making her first shift in four months and Mercury not only making his first shift since May but spending time in three areas of your chart this month. As Mercury is your ruling planet and the speed that he moves through the heavens is key to the mental variety you crave, is reason enough to make this a good month.
Mercury will start the month in your friendship sector, wrapping up a visit that began in May but which has given you time to make personal and professional networking a priority. This has also been good news for your relationships, for they have been able to work with the planet of communication’s friendly aspect to both planets in your relationship sector. On 5th August Mercury will join the Sun in a reflective part of your chart, helping with the wind down of your old solar year. However, stalled for so long Mercury is ready to move on and just 15 days later will become the first planet to return to Virgo this year on 20th August.
This is a chance to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open before the Sun returns to begin your birthday month and new solar year on 23rd August. Meanwhile, Venus will finally wrap up a four month visit to your career sector on 8th August, before returning to take up from where Mercury left off in your friendship sector. However, a Full Moon in your work sector on 4th August, a month after Saturn left and just as Juno is spending her last full month in your income sector, could be a trigger or a catalyst across the income, work and career fronts.
Virgo August 2020 Love Horoscope
Because Saturn only retrograded back into your romantic sector early last months and will turn direct later next month this is his first, last and only full month in retrograde motion here. At the same time, while Jupiter has been here all year and in retrograde motion since May, this is also his last full month in retrograde motion in your romantic sector while Ceres, who only turned retrograde in your relationship sector last month, will retrograde back out next month. This makes August the only month this year when both planets in your relationship sector and all three planets in your romantic sector are in retrograde motion at the same time, all focused on the past and all holding the doors open to the past and second chances.
The fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart before returning to Virgo on 23rd August and Mercury is there from 5th August to 20th August, will add to a sense of nostalgia and a focus on the past. The Moon will begin the month in your romantic sector and after leaving on 3rd August will come full circle again from 28th August to 30th August. The Moon will make its monthly visit to your relationship sector from 5th August to 8th August, bringing a chance to check in on your relationships.
The one planet that is bucking the trend this month and is not focused on the past is Venus, with the planet of love finally on the move after her own retrograde phase in May and June, returning to a social and serendipitous part of your chart on 8th August. Once here Venus will spend the rest of the month triggering the laws of attraction and synchronicity, as she works to put you in the right place at the right time. This will put Venus onside with both planets in your relationship sector, creating positive conditions and support for friendship and relationship building.
Virgo August 2020 Money Horoscope
While Mars returned to your financial sector in late June and at the very least would always spend at least six weeks here and hasn’t reached that point at the start of the month, you have already moved into an important zone. The reality is that Mars is here to stay and instead of leaving he is slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn, with his longest visit in 32 years keeping the warrior planet of the cosmos here for the rest of the year. The important zone that I mentioned was his retrograde shadow, which means the point in your financial sector that he will retrograde back to.
Mars is still moving forward but the ground he is covering now is the same ground that he will not only retrograde back over in September and October but will track over for a third time before leaving in January. This means that everything that you are starting, approaching or investing in now financially you will have a chance to return to, meaning that there isn’t the urgency to finish or even get everything right. This gives you the rare freedom to set things in motion knowing that you can come back to it, not once but twice. At the same time, Mars is enjoying a problem free month, after his clash with Juno in your income sector last month.
Support from the Sun and Mercury will also fuel your financial confidence, instincts and imagination, which in turn adds fuel to Mars’ financial passions and fighting spirit. Normally when Mars moves through you have six weeks to take your financial power back but this time you have over six months. The Moon’s return to your financial sector from 8th August to 10th August will be a chance to check in, with the Moon giving you a better read on money matters and on where Mars’ warrior spirit is drawing you. There will be a chance to check in on income matters when the Moon moves through your income sector from 21st August to 23rd August. These are often the most lucrative days of any month.
Virgo August 2020 Career Horoscope
With Venus finally wrapping up her epic four month visit to your career sector on 8th August and with the Sun and Mercury long gone, the first seven days were always going to be the most important of the month. However, it turns out that this is not the only reason and thanks to the Moon, this could be an explosive time across the income, work and career fronts. Since Saturn retrograded back out of your work sector early last month Venus has been the only planet in either of your two professional houses. However, as Saturn had been there during Venus’ first three months in your career sector, to have the Moon return on 3rd August was always going to be an advantage.
Before leaving on 5th August, as well as giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters, the Moon will form a friendly aspect to Venus in your career sector and to Juno in your income sector, bringing together forces on the income, work and career fronts that until a month ago had been constantly working together. If all the Moon did was move through that would still be enough to make these some of the most important days of the month but it is the Full Moon this will create on 4th August that could act as a significant trigger.
With Venus just four days away from leaving your career sector by then, this will be a catalyst for all she has been working towards for the last four months as well. Venus’ departure on 8th August will end all planetary activity on the career front for the year but not the professional gods’ presence there. For the first time since its return in May, the North Node will come out of the shadows and here for the rest of the year and due to create a total solar eclipse in December is the force that will keep the rest of this professional year on track.
