On Aug 22, Sun enters Virgo. When summer ends, you become more modest after spending the last month being the center of attention. As you go over every detail, you will be rational, organized, and cynical in the next four weeks. On the same day,  Mercury in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn – As the mind will be full of fresh ideas and unique solutions, this is the perfect day to brainstorm.

On Aug 24, Uranus goes retrograde in Taurus. There will be plenty of chances to face your fears and eliminate what isn’t working during this five-month retrograde.

Then on Aug 25, Mercury enters Libra. As your inner diplomatic emerges, communication becomes charming and friendly. Even though it’s not the best time to make significant decisions, it does offer an opportunity to practice your negotiation skills.

Then on Aug 26, Venus in Leo squares Uranus in Taurus. Again, patience is needed when this frustrating aspect brings sudden, unexpected changes and delays.

On Aug 26, the Sun in Virgo squares Mars in Gemini. Conflict, miscommunication, and nervous energy could occur during a hectic day. It is not a good day to make a big business or personal decision. 

Then on Aug 27, the New moon is in Virgo. Here is a time to begin to set intentions to improve all areas of your life without becoming too obsessive about it. 

Finally, on Aug 28, Venus in Leo in opposition to Saturn in Aquarius. Feeling unappreciated and unrecognized by others is frustrating. It may result in conflict and make expressing feelings difficult. Let’s see how the signs do this week. 

Aries – You will find that your problem-solving skills are more substantial this week, and there may be a mystery you will unravel. It can either create some havoc in your work situation, or it could help you in many ways. Either way, you must focus on your inner resources and problem-solving abilities. 

Taurus – Uranus in your sign is going into retrograde again, which means you will feel a lot of unsettled feelings. You will have to dig into your spiritual side and find ways to cope. You dislike change or any unsettling feelings. However, you know that situations out of your control will happen and cause changes. 

Gemini – You will be in a position to give someone some motivational pep talks. This could be someone at work or someone in your personal life. But they will be struggling in an area where you could help them as you have been in their situation before. They may not take your advice, but by giving them that pep talk, you offered the help, you needed to provide them. 

Cancer – You have it within to manifest everything you want and need, and with the New Moon energy, you will find ways to start manifesting your wishes by setting an intention to do so practically. Your challenge this week is to leave emotions out of what you need to do, organize your life, and select other purposes by using your logical side only. 

Leo – This is the week where the spotlight is off of you, and you don’t like it, and you may even feel that you are not getting the recognition you want. The truth is that your content is being noticed no less than before, but you may think so and begin to feel as if others do not care what you put out. So be prepared to do plenty of shadow work over the next while. 

Virgo –  You are the focus for this week and the next four weeks. And the main thing is you will want to focus on how you present yourself. Are there changes you need to make with your communication and even appearance? You may have the urge to start changing your wardrobe somewhat. This is the best week for you to begin setting intentions of how you want to present yourself and maybe even make some adjustments to your goals. 

Libra –  Mercury enters your sign this week, which will give you the urge to sharpen up your problem-solving skills. You are usually more creative than practical, but you will find that this week and the next while, you will be much more helpful than you are used to. This transit will make your work life a bit easier – and your personal life too. 

Scorpio – Communication is a big one for you this week and will be significant for you for several weeks. You will come into a situation where you will not be able to hold back and say nothing, which is what you tend to do often. You tend to stay quiet, which causes passive-aggressive behavior if you are unhappy with something that someone did. Finally, you will be forced to speak up. 

Sagittarius – Your focus this week will be your home life. Your work life will always be essential, but you will be needed by family this week, and with your nature, you will not like it since you need to be free. However, be prepared that you will be a little less accessible this week and may have to spend more time at home. 

Capricorn – You need to have some fun! You put having leisure time at the bottom of your to-do list as your work and family come first. However, you will face some situations this week where you will realize that having some fun is essential. That can even mean going to the cafe alone, enjoying a latte while reading your favorite book. 

Aquarius – Your ruler goes into retrograde this week, and the first thing you will realize when it does is that you need to take better care of your mental and physical health. Therefore, you will need to start taking it seriously. Talk to your doctor about a plan to help you begin a healthy regimen if you feel you must. But you need to take much better care of yourself. 

Pisces –  You are likely going to have to do some projects with others this week, whether it is you and a colleague responsible for some work together, or you may end up doing some sort of joint venture with someone if you are a business owner, or make plans to do so. Either way, you will not be working solo too much this week.
