For the week beginning with the waxing Quarter Moon in Scorpio, August 7 - August 14th:
All the fiery Leo emphasis could be a bit much for you, Virgo, as the personal planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars) gather in your 12th house of the subconscious, the place we all tend to hide the matters we are unwilling to face.
We begin the 2nd lunar quarter on Wednesday, August 7th, exact at 1:31 PM EDT. This quarter Moon asks you to take action on the seeds planted or ideas germinated at the Leo New Moon. Because that New Moon took place in a place hidden from conscious thought, you may not even be aware of what is growing there. Be gentle with yourself, Virgo. Allow the light of the Sun to reveal what is ready to be seen. You might find that you need to make some adjustment in your communications with others.
On Thursday, August 8th, Venus in your Leo 12th house forms a beautiful flowing exchange with Jupiter in your Sagittarius 4th house of home and roots, suggesting healing and soothing of subconscious issues regarding your perceived self-worth as relates to home and family, resulting in a more positive outlook. The Moon enters Sagittarius about the same time, bringing emotional focus to this process.
August 11th is a busy day among the planets as Jupiter turns direct, Mercury enters Leo, and Uranus turns retrograde.
Since April, retrograde Jupiter has been asking you to review your beliefs or your spiritual growth in the area of family and home. He is almost stopped now at 14˚ Sagittarius and will begin to creep forward on August 11th. By then you should have a renewed sense of optimism and expansion in this area.
Also on August 11th, Mercury, your ruling planet, re-enters your Leo 12th house, picking up speed after his backward movement into Cancer. Mercury joins the Sun, Venus, and Mars in Leo, placing a huge emphasis on this hidden area. Mercury can help you gather your thoughts and put words to elusive 12th house matters. Journaling can help, so put pen to paper.
Uranus has been parked at 6˚ Taurus for weeks now and will turn retrograde on August 11th. You’ve been feeling his presence especially in your area of higher learning, spirituality, and travel since May, and possibly last fall as well. Uranus is the planet of change and revolution. He often brings sudden and unexpected disruption. Think back to May of this year, and also to May through October of last year when Uranus was briefly in Taurus. What has changed for you in your beliefs, your studies, or your travels?
On August 14th, Venus joins the Sun in your 12th house, reinforcing any healing or revelations brought about by her talk with Jupiter this week. Let yourself to be soothed by Venus and allow yourself to love and be loved.
