You’re headed into a new chapter now because the sun will leave behind exuberant and expressive Leo and enter organized and cleansing Virgo as of Aug. 23. If you were hoping for a chance to settle down and get back to work, there’s no better time than now. Virgo is all about making plans, sorting through one problem at a time, and getting to the bottom of everything. But don’t go thinking you won’t have fun every step of the way because August 19, 2019 will be the best week for these zodiac signs and it makes so much sense. After all, when the sun is in an earth sign, who benefits from it more than people with placements in Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn?
Aside from the excitement of beginning a new astrological season, this week is marked by passionate romance, as well as a desire to learn. On Aug. 21, Mercury — planet of communication and cognitive function — will form a trine with expansive and philosophical Jupiter. This will instill you with a yearning to open your mind and grow your mental skills. Conversations will be more stimulating and you’ll feel eager to talk about all that you know and hear about what others have to teach you. When Venus — planet of love and finances — forms a trine with passionate and driven Mars, you’ll feel a spike in sexual and romantic energy. This is also a gorgeous time to pour your heart into something creative and tend to your romantic life. No matter what, you’ll feel a pull toward something enticing and satisfying, so go where the wind takes you.
The first week of Virgo season is looking up. Here’s how earth signs will benefit from it:
Taurus: You’re Feeling More Romantic Than You Have In A While
Now that the sun has entered your fifth house of fun and creativity, you’re being brought back to life. This time is about expressing yourself to the fullest, enjoying the fruits of your splendor, and living in the moment. You’re attracting romance at every turn and you’re seeing the world through a more artistic perspective.
When Mercury forms a trine with Jupiter, you’ll be able to work through any issues at home and with your family. You’re understanding what you desire from your safe space and what you need in order to feel emotionally secure.
Virgo: You’re Feeling Powerful And On Top Of Your Game
Happy solar return, Virgo! This is possibly the most energized and courageous times of year for you, so there’s no better time to truly embrace the person you are and put yourself out there. Let no one’s expectations of you hinder your decisions. Right now, it’s time to put yourself first and let the whole world know what you’re about.
Your imagination is exceptionally vivid this week, especially when Mercury and Jupiter form a trine. Your dreams may be extremely memorable and your intuition overly active. Listen to and take note of what your gut is telling you.
Capricorn: You’re Experiencing A Renewed Faith In Your Life
You’re seeing the entire view rather than focusing on just one corner of it now that the sun has entered your ninth house of wisdom and expansion. Everything is coming together in a way that makes you feel as though so much more is possible. You should spend this time partaking in activities that deviate from your norm and forging memorable experiences.
You may be feeling very investigative and tuned in to deeper ways of thinking this week. When Mercury and Jupiter form a trine, you’ll focus on matters of the heart and deepening your emotional commitments.
And Now For The Three Signs Who Won’t Have The Best Week
I never enjoy letting you know the upcoming astrology is going to be rough on your zodiac sign. After all, there’s no telling what’s truly going on in your life, and just because the planets are affecting the parts of your birth chart that tend to be more sensitive than others doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t appreciate it. With that being said, the sun enters analytical, logical, and easily anxious Virgo on Aug. 23, which explains why August 19, 2019 will be the worst week for these zodiac signs. If you’ve got your sun or rising sign in Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius, this astrological shift will put you through a far more emotional time than you might be hoping for.
Luckily, the transits taking place this week will spike your desires and encourage you to expand your mind. Even if your zodiac sign made the “worst week” list, the collective energy is moving in a positive direction. When Mercury — planet of communication and thought process — forms a harmonious trine with Jupiter — planet of growth and philosophy — you’ll feel eager to fill your brain with knowledge and see different perspectives. This is a great time to level up your way of thinking and renew your mentality. When Venus — planet of love and beauty — joins forces with Mars — planet of ambition and passion — you’ll feel flooded with primal energy that you can harness for something worthwhile. Even though air signs are receiving the brunt of the difficulty this week, they’ll also feel cradled by the last quarter moon in Gemini on Aug. 23.
Here’s what the following zodiac signs have in store:
Gemini: You’re Feeling Far Less Social And Far More Heartfelt
Despite how bubbly and extroverted you often are, even a Gemini needs to calm down and cozy up every once in a while. Now that the sun has entered your fourth house of home and family, you’ll probably feel more like returning to your sacred space and nurturing your heart than being out and about. While this energy can make you feel more sensitive to external stimuli, it’s a beautiful time to redesign your living space, spend intimate time with close loved ones, and chill out.
With a last quarter moon in your first house of the self, you’re being called to shed your spiritual skin and get to know a deeper version of you. Use this energy to heal.
Libra: You’re Living In Your Own Little Distracted World
It may be more difficult for you to feel motivated to go out and join the real world now that the sun has entered your 12th house of spirituality. As this house is concerned with your subconscious dreamworld, as well as your memories, you may find yourself feeling foggy and detached from reality. This is the perfect time to do some therapy and healing, as your true feelings are rushing to the surface where they can’t hide. Reserve time for yourself because forcing things to happen a certain way may leave you feeling disappointed.
You will also have the power to go on a spiritual journey that brings you to the truth this week, as the last quarter moon enlightens your ninth house of expansion and adventure.
Aquarius: You’re Not In The Mood For Anything Superficial
You’re doing away with surface area nonsense in your life now that the sun has entered your eighth house of death and rebirth. This energy is encouraging you to search for death and concern yourself with the truth. You can’t avoid the transformation you’re currently going through. It’s time to let go of the past and embrace a new beginning. However, this energy is also incredibly intimate, and you could find yourself growing closer to someone than you ever have before.
You may want to use creativity as a source of healing this week, as the last quarter moon lights up your artistic fifth house of expression.
