Virgo August 2017 Horoscope
A Surge of Power
Eclipses are the theme of August, and for you, Virgo, it is going to be a powerful astrological month. May was a tranquil month that allowed you to shake off the winter doldrums and ease into the busy summer months. June and July were full of activity. Now, August’s two eclipses are going to illuminate and energize several important aspects of your life.
Lunar Eclipses for Virgo August Horoscope
To begin the month, there is a Lunar Eclipse on August 7th in Aquarius. This is an important date, and you want to be prepared for how this eclipse is going to affect your mood before, during, and after the eclipse. When these eclipses occurred, even just 20 years or so ago, they weren’t as significant. But in today’s world of social media, everything gets blown out of proportion. For you, Virgo, the eclipse will alter your everyday life, at work or at home. Be prepared to have “raw” emotions, and don’t let any little slight bring forth negativity.
There will also be a Full Moon on August 7th . Native American tribes called the August Moon the “Sturgeon Moon” because they knew that the fishermen catching sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain had their largest catches during this moon. The Full Moon is when the moon’s energy is at its peak. The day of the full moon brings vitality, good health and friendships. This moon is also called the Blueberry Moon, for the blueberry harvest, but in color, it appears reddish when reflecting through a molten haze during the early hours of the day.
The importance of following astrological events is to have a preparation for tendencies in our behavior and in our relationships with others. Knowing that you might be on edge around this eclipse is a great tool that will allow you to be extra kind and forgiving for any negativity directed your way.
Mercury Retrograde for Virgo August Horoscope
Mercury turns Retrograde on August 12th, right in your sign. This is going to last until September 5th, and is going to be time with potential for chaos. Before and after these dates are when you should be making important decisions about your relationships, work, and projects you are working on.
During this Retrograde you will want to focus on evaluating the important aspects of your life, whatever your priorities are such as your career and an important romance or friendships. Don’t rush to any judgments, but take the time to be introspective, knowing that your outlook could change dramatically once the retrograde is over.
