First, let’s take a look at where your major celestial players will be positioned in the skies this month. This will give a general idea of the energy you’ll be feeling over the next few weeks before we get down to the specifics and the nitty gritty of how you can make these transiting planetary energies WORK for you and help you in your quest to find that lasting love, or that unforgettable fling. Whatever you are looking for, we’ll help you find it.
First, we’ll take a look at Your ruling planet, Mercury, and where this powerful energy will be felt the most:
Mercury will be positioned in your sign for the entirety of the month, making communications with others that much more pleasant. Being a Virgo, you’re already one of the best when it comes to articulation of your thoughts, that goes without saying. This month, though, you’ll really be able to get your point across and perhaps even talk up that cutie you’ve had your eye on!
It wouldn’t be a love report without talking about Venus and where this lovely energy will be most prominent in your chart:
Venus, will also be hanging out in your sign for the better part of the month, which kind of gives you an incredible advantage now when it comes to romance. Early in the month things may feel like they’re moving a bit slow in the romance department, but that won’t last for long!
You can bet that after the 5th you’ll start to get the recognition and admiration from someone special you’ve been hoping for. We’ll go more in-depth into what this means as we go through your Virgo love report for August, but generally speaking, this is going to be your month to get noticed and to really shine.
Now that we know where you stand when it comes to communication and affection, let’s talk about where you will find passion—In other words, let’s have a look at Mars:
Mars, the planet we most closely associate with passion, starts out the first few days of the month of August in the deeply passionate, and more often than not, kinky Scorpio. On the surface, this may feel a bit more edgy than you typically like, Virgo, but try to go with it and you won’t be disappointed.This Mars placement gives a great boost to your sex life, trust me on that!
After the 3rd, Mars will move into fiery Sagittarius, making your desires all the more adventurous. What this boils down to, and we will definitely go deeper into this aspect of your love life for the month of August, is the stage being set for some sizzling summer fun, both in the streets and between the sheets.
Now, I know what you’re thinking…”But that’s only three planets!” Well, you are correct there, but these are the quickest moving and most influential planets we deal with on a day to day basis, and when it comes down to love, these are the guys who will bring on the fluctuations of good days and not so good days for your sign as we go through the month. We’ll look into what the other planets are doing, as well, so don’t worry.
Why Virgo Can Expect to Feel Irresistible in the Month of August
Mercury and Venus will be cuddled up close in your sign for the most of the month of August, and this will make you absolutely irresistible. It’ll really bring out your magnetism and sexuality in a way you haven’t experienced in quite a while.
Being a Virgo, Mercury snuggling up with Venus gives you more personal power to make things happen and get something started this month when it comes to romantic conversation.
Aside from being a conversation starter, the coupling of Mercury and Venus are going to make you absolutely irresistible to others. Seriously, you’re going to have to fight them off with a stick, so prepare yourself for such!
Right around the 4th of August you are going to start feeling this positive energy coming into your life. This is when Venus moves into your sign, as well as when the Moon will be making a direct connection with Mercury. All this positive energy is focused around one thing—You.
Communications will just flow and you’ll have no problem establishing a connection with someone on an emotional level. This transiting energy promotes good feelings for you and lets you see that it isn’t all about the physical side of things. This will satisfy your need to know that the one you are sharing intimate thoughts and moments with truly cares.
How Mars Is Spicing Things Up Beyond Your Wildest Dreams
With Mars in Scorpio until the 3rd there will be plenty of energy there for the physical side of things, should that be where your head is at. Really, the beginning of August gives you the best of both worlds and will allow you to kinda choose which path you’d like to start the month out heading down. It’s truly a luxury to be able to pick and choose which direction your love life will go, so be certain that you take FULL advantage of it! Being a Virgo, you love options and to feel like you are in control, making this Mars placement simply perfect for you.
With all this talk of love, lust and conversation, it bears importance to tell you that you can expect some deep discussions at the start of the month. Anything from whats your favorite position to your darkest fantasies could come up, so don’t be shy, this could be the moment you’ve been waiting for to share this sorta thing with whoever it is you want to get close with.
The New Moon in Leo on the 2nd makes a positive aspect to Saturn and softens the sometimes difficult Saturnian energy. This is really great considering this sets the tone for the weeks to come. The aspect with Saturn here is even more emphasized because, well, when we have the New Moon making this aspect that means the Sun is as well, and in Leo this is a pretty powerful kind of energy. This aspect reminds you to go after whatever it is that you want most. In Leo, romance is highly favored and the feeling of warmth and being wanted is definitely there.
Along with the New Moon in Leo making an aspect that lightens up Saturn a bit, there is also an aspect with Lilith, the black moon, that poses a bit of a challenge. This forces you to choose between what is comfortable and that which is more dark and daring. You may be forced to make a choice—choose happiness here and you won’t be disappointed.
As a Virgo, you tend to struggle with accepting the fact that you can’t make everyone happy all of the time, just like you can’t organize every area of your life. This transit points out just those things while the energy creates and perpetuates a need to feed the darker side of your thought processes. That, mixed with the influence you’ve been feeling from Mars spending such an extensive amount of time in Scorpio over the last few months, pushes you to explore the darker side of your desires.
You aren’t exactly known for putting your desires out there, Virgo, so take this opportunity and run with it—At the very least this energy will give you something to think about for the next couple of months.
Aside from having your appearance highlighted, as if you had one of those awesome snapchat filters overlaid on you all of the time—you know which one I’m talking about—there is a lot going on as we go through the remainder of the month that focuses on romance and some fun nights.
Mars moves into Sagittarius the 3rd and slowly makes its way to a close connection with Saturn. Luckily, if you’ll remember, Saturn was softened up a bit earlier in the month. This will push your desires toward something more earthy, and more Virgo-like, and could take you out of the mood for something spicy and exciting. Don’t get me wrong, you’ll still crave passion, you’ll just want that passion to stick around and call the next day. You’ll move out of the need for excitement and more into a headspace where you need a little stability in whatever relationship you are entering into.
Making Love Fun in The Month of August
With Mars in Sagittarius, the energy is full of fire and ready to travel. Your wanderlust is going to be taking hold and you could find yourself drawn to someone who isn’t your norm. Explore, have a look around and have a good time with love this month.
You are charged with personal power and you are more comfortable now than ever when it comes to taking charge in a relationship. Being of the Virgo persuasion, you’ve got the ability to use with your wits and your beauty to take over just about any worthy partner, or potential partner. Don’t be afraid to take charge, go after what you want and you will most certainly be able to get it this month. All we ask is that you use your powers for good!
Since we are talking about Sagittarius and where this other mutable sign comes into the equation of love in the month of August, it is worth mentioning that Jupiter will only be in your sign for another few weeks.
Yes, there are some huge benefits that you’ll be the lucky recipient of when Jupiter moves into Libra early next month, but let’s not forget about the benefits you can still reap in the last leg of Jupiter in your very own sign! If you are looking for love, now is the time to take it. That’s the key this month, though, you’ve got to take it.
A Freaky Full Moon Mixed With An Intense Venus Pluto Thing
Moving right along, you can expect to have quite an interesting experience when we get to the Aquarius Full Moon on the 18th. The Full Moon in Aquarius will bring you to a point where you can solve a problem that’s been plaguing your day to day life, and this will be beneficial to your 9-5 lifestyle. What could be better than that?
Beyond this practical application of the Full Moon, there is so much more that the 18th of August has to offer you, Virgo:
You’ve had Pluto knocking around in the area of your chart that rules over love and happiness for quite some time. This transit can make you feel rather broken down in some instances, and no-doubt you’ve gone through this in one way or another.
What happens on the 18th though, this will be one of the peaks of Pluto tearing down the negative associations you’ve had over the years. Venus, still lighting up your own sign, will make an amazing connection with Pluto in this romance-fueled area of your stars right at the same time the Lunar energy is at its most powerful.
When Venus and Pluto make this great connection, the potential for there to be some crazy love happening in your life is huge….HUGE. Pluto not only does its work by tearing away the negatives in your life and stripping you down to your rawest form, the planetary energy also can bring some incredibly intense experiences into your life.
Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio and governs our primal and intuitive feelings. Don’t hold back under this transit. Let yourself feel and you will feel things you won’t soon forget, as well as some incredible physical stuff, too.
If you are single, be on the lookout for intense personalities who make you really feel something. It may seem a bit uncomfortable at first, and this is totally ok, but once you get into the moment you’ll be so happy you let the love, or lust, in. This is a no holds bard kind of day, or days, and of all people, Virgo, you NEED this.
Now, beyond the Venus-Pluto energy, you’ll also have the innovative and progressive thinking energy of the Aquarius Full Moon. When you mix Pluto and Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, what you get is a crazy good time that’ll probably come out of nowhere. Go with the flow mid-month.
Don’t let anything stop you and you are in for the ride of your life.
How Mercury And Jupiter Make Things Seem Larger Than Life
Right around the time of the Full Moon and Venus aspecting Pluto, you’ve also got Mercury making a direct connection with Jupiter, still all in your sign. This energy brings on feelings of optimism and happiness, as well as the ability to talk to anyone about anything. Don’t be surprised if you find you are in the company of way more people than usual.
This may seem intimidating at first, but once you get settled in you’ll realize that you can make something amazing of this transit. There may be some changes that you realize need to be made now, so make them.
Trust your intuition now and you’ll find that life falls into place. The one big thing to avoid here, in romance as well as other areas of life, is going overboard. Things may seem larger than life, so use your Virgo sensibility to keep these things in check. Do your best to stay fluid and let yourself be free while still keeping life in perspective.
What To Do When Reality And Fantasy Come Head To Head
The month of August is proving to be pretty amazing when it comes to romance so far, and this can help you when it comes to making some lasting changes or additions to your love life. The main kink in the works this month comes toward the end, right around the 30th, when Saturn and Neptune square off, yet again.
You are likely familiar with this energy by now, as this has been happening of and on for what feels like an eternity. With Neptune in your relationship zone and Saturn in your home and family zone, plus the addition of Mars thrown in the mix, you could be feeling torn between relationship and your home life right at the end of the month. Remember breathe and handle problems with elegance.
This coincides with Jupiter leaving your sign in the next week, so there is a real mixed bag of emotions you’ll be feeling. You’ve had so much fun over the beginning of August and you aren’t ready to let go, but it is important that you stay true to what’s real and whats not.
Neptune in your relationship zone brings people into your one-on-one relationships who aim to muddy the waters of what’s real and what isn’t. You can get through this relatively unscathed, but you’ve got to keep your eyes open and not let others pull the wool over them. This may be difficult in some instances, but you can do it.
The last few days of August is not the time to start any new relationships that you want to be long-lasting, or, for that matter, successful. This doesn’t mean to seclude yourself, just stay alert and keep your head out of the clouds. Reality isn’t always all that awesome, granted, but you still have a lot going for you, even if the planets have moved out of the most beneficial positions they’ve been in for the beginning of the month.
As a last note for what to watch out for in the month of August, it bears importance to mention that Mercury, your ruler, will be moving into another Mercury retrograde period in the final days of August. This can cause some confusion, miscommunication, and general frustration for you that will last well into September. We’ll talk more about this in next months forecast, just know it is coming and that the last couple of days in August have all the makings of bringing some frustrations with them.
