August 2012 Monthly Horoscope for Virgo
Overview: The ruler of your romantic life and love affairs - Neptune - has been retrograde since June. It is quite a long time, don't you think? Emotionally and romantically, things are probably a bit too slow for your taste. You might have felt smothered, frightened or unable to make some necessary moves and changes. The time you devote to yourself - completely alone and in total meditation - is the most significant accomplishment during this period, since this will give you some important perceptions about your future. During this period, however, the days between the 7th to the 9th could turn out to be quite positive, since Venus will positively influence your social acquaintances. Despite all this, your 12th house - Inner world - will still continue to be active and you should experience a strong urge to spend some time meditating and relaxing. After the 23rd, the Sun enters your sign and you will feel brand new. This movement will give you more energy to dedicate more time to your plans.
Career and Work: Jupiter reactivates the solar eclipse of June 4th, so you may have some problems with authority figures and, consequently, in the work department. This could be particularly true towards the end of the month. The best thing for you to do is analyze things by yourself, in sort of a seclusion environment. You will be reviewing your past year, so if you need a career change, this is the time to make plans and to look towards the future.
Finances and Money: From the 7th to the 9th, the love planet Venus will be making some beautiful features to your sign and, therefore, it will create opportunities for privileged meetings and social invites. Amongst these interactions, keep an eye out for any opportunities regarding business partnerships or joint ventures, but analyze everything in detail.
Love and Relationships: with your love planet being retrograde for quite some time now, romance has been quite slow. This doesn't mean that things are stopped or inexistent, but rather that things have been a bit slow. Let love develop freely and without pressures, because if you try to charge forward, things may blow up in your face. After the Sun enters your sign, on the 23rd, your charisma will be higher and so will be your mental clarity.
Health: relaxation and meditation exercise will help you tremendously, Virgo, during August 2012. The need for seclusion could result in some added pressure and stress, so make sure you get plenty of rest and sleep enough hours. A good way to boost your energy is to manage your eating habits accordingly.
