Summary Virgo Horoscope: An emphasis on work, health, and closure, with two major eclipses in these sectors. Mercury retrograde could see a personal project or relationship come up for review. Saturn direct in your home zone could straighten out a housing or family matter.
Extended Virgo Horoscope: There’s sure to be lots of activity in your life this month, with two game changing eclipses, Mercury and Uranus going retrograde, and Saturn going direct!
The month begins with two major heavy hitting planets, Jupiter and Pluto, squaring one another on August 4th in your money and love sectors. You might have difficulties with romance or child-related matters, or find yourself hit with a large expense.
This aspect has occurred before- in late November 2016 and late March 2017– so think back to those times for clues as to themes that could emerge.
Then, the first eclipse will be a lunar eclipse on August 7th in your work and health zone. Luckily, this eclipse will reach out happily to good luck Jupiter in your salary house, as well as stable Saturn in your home sector, suggesting that you could get a new job with a nice, new salary. You might even get to relocate or work from home.
One thing to be watchful of, however, is the fact that energizer Mars will be zooming through your 12th house of closure, directly opposite this eclipse. It’s possible that you will have to work out some behind-the-scenes kinks, or close out some areas of your life in order to move forward.
Some good days to address closure needs are August 10th, 13th, 16th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 27th. Luckily, I don’t see any other negative squares or oppositions between planets in this house this month!
In fact, the solar eclipse on August 21st takes place in this very same house of closure, and it is the most gorgeous eclipse! It will conjunct motivator Mars and the fated North Node, reach out happily to Jupiter and Uranus in your two money houses, and trine stable Saturn in your home zone!
It’s possible that you sell your home at this time, and if so, it seems you’ll make a pretty penny! You might also buy a home or move, or spend time with family. It’s also possible you receive money from an inheritance or sell off a product or investment for profit.
There is reason to suggest that you make any moves earlier than the eclipse, however, as on August 13th Mercury goes retrograde, and I think we all know to stay away from Mercury retrograde by now! Especially for you, since Mercury is your ruler.
This time, the retrograde will take place in your sign of Virgo, so you may need to review and revise a personal project or relationship. I would avoid making any major commitments “official” during this time or signing any contracts. You could find down the road that whatever you committed to is not what you thought it was.
Mercury also rules your 10th house of career, so this is an area of life that could come up for review as well. Mercury goes direct on September 5th.
Switching gears, you’ll be pleased to hear that love planet Venus is gliding through your 11th house of friendships this month, blessing social events, long-term goals, and friendships.
Venus will make loving aspects to Mercury (your ruler), Neptune, and Pluto respectively on August 10th, 12th, and 15th, so these are wonderful days to hang with friends.
Days I would avoid are August 17th and August 24th, when Venus will be angry with Jupiter and then Uranus in your two financial houses.
Luckily, August 27th sees the Sun in your salary house reach out happily to Saturn in your home zone. Even better, on August 25th, Saturn goes direct in your home zone, suggesting that a housing or family matter will speed up or become easier.

Summary Virgo Horoscope: A full moon in your love house on July 8th could bring a romance or child-related matter to a head. The new moon on July 23rd could see you close out a chapter of your life.
Extended Virgo Horoscope: June 23rd saw a new moon in your friendships and goals house, conjunct Mercury (your ruler) and Mars in the same house, and making a loose square to Jupiter in your salary zone.
It’s possible that you launched a new group or goal, or attended a fun event.
The first few weeks of the month continue this focus on friends and goals, with your best day to take action being July 5th, when the Sun makes a harmonious trine to Neptune in your relationship house.
However, there are some hard aspects going on in this house throughout the month, which could bring challenges your way. Days to watch out for are July 2nd, 4th, 9th, 17th, and 20th.
Then, July 8th sees full moon in your love zone, and in truth, this moon is mixed.
While the moon will make a loving trine to Neptune in your relationship house, it will conjunct transformational Pluto, oppose warrior Mars in your goals house, and square good luck Jupiter in your salary house.
It’s possible that a pregnancy or child-related need upends other plans or proves expensive. Alternatively, you could feel torn between a lover and a friend, or between group obligations and personal needs.
Luckily, career matters seem to go well this month, with loving Venus gliding her way through Gemini. Good days to address these types of needs are July 18th, 26th, and 30th.
I would avoid July 17th and 24th for career matters.
As the month progresses, planets begin to trickle into Leo and your 12th house of closure. Luckily, it’s all good news on this front, as Mercury (your ruler!) makes harmonious aspects with Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, the True Node, and Uranus on July 7th, 14th, 19th, 21st, and 24th respectively.
In fact, you get a lovely new moon in this same 12th house on July 23th, suggesting that you may close out a chapter of your life.
Next month offers even more possibilities for closure, since there will be a stunning solar eclipse in Leo (your 12th house) on August 21st.
