And just like that, goodbye Leo and hellooo… Virgo! Happy birthday to all of my Virgo readers, may the odd be always in your favor. So, how does it feel like to share your birthday with Your Majesty Queen Bey?
 
As the Sun leaves the bright and passionate Leo, we'll welcome a birthday period for Virgo’s August - September babies. Here’s to the practical sign who enjoys intellectual talks and a good day of hard work. Cheers! :)
 
The new shift of Sun in Virgo will bring clarity into your communication process; affecting other aspects in your personal life, such as love, money, and luck. The Sun, the embodiment of ego, is now joining the party held by Mercury, Jupiter, and Venus in Virgo. The combination between the four planets signifies the pride and confidence that soars through conversations and a great planning. You’ll be happy to talk about your work and what you do. And guess what? The more you do, the more opportunity you’ll get in the future. There’s no harm in a little bit of self-promotion, am I right?
 
The Sun will be in trine with the Moon and Uranus retrograde in Aries during this alignment. Your decision making process will be determined not only by the calculative Virgo, but also how you feel about your decision. Trine is a positive aspect, so make your decision based on a combination of your business guts and a proper research. Do your due diligence before coming up with a plan. The Uranus retrograde will pop new exciting ideas in your head, but some ideas may not be feasible enough to execute. I mean, it’s good to dream about having your own startup company. But if you don’t have enough capital and resources, maybe you should think twice before jumping into the opportunity.
 
If you’re looking to enhance your productivity and make the right decision in your work and career, Sun in Virgo will help you to achieve it. With its combination of hard work, attention to detail, and logical energy, a small gig may just turn into a bigger opportunity right before your very eyes.
 


Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Ace of Disks
 
With your ruler Mercury added with Sun, Venus, and Jupiter in your 1st House, listen to yourself when it comes to making career/business decision. End of August is a tough period for your career and future. It’s basically an intersection where all small decisions count. If you can’t trust your mentors, always be ready to listen to your own gut. "Make sure all partnerships you have is worth your time and money,” “Don’t forget to save up for the rainy days,” and “Don’t spill your private secrets to your business associates” are one of the few good old advice your gut is telling you. Listen to it, and make your very own wise decision.

Nine of Cups (Happiness)
 
Although earth shades always looks good on you, adorn yourself with a hint of lavender / baby blue shade this week. Let’s get in touch with your Miss Goody-Two-Shoes side, although we all know how things can be VERY different between the sheets (wink, wink). We want a classy, professional Virgo, to play it sweet while we are embracing our inner goddess. Keep the pastel color limited to your top (a clean blue loose shirt works!), or bottom, but stick with your leather purse and your usual earthy vibe for your head to toe.
 
Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
The Empress
 
Have you been squeezing your creative juice hard lately? Well guess what, creativity takes a certain degree of mindfulness and the ability to be at peace with the universe. Look to the nature for inspiration. Find it between the mountains and the trees. Spend your time outdoor for a change and see the difference.
 
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Prince of Cups
 
The feeling of not being able to achieve anything significant is now tickling your ego – waiting to strike through a sudden outburst. But you know it’s not true, right? You’ve achieved so much that you should celebrate yourself! PS: Use this moment to be grateful, not to be conceited, Scorpio.
 
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Fortune
 
Easy come, easy go. This is how money feels like for you this week, Sagittarius. So how to stop you from overspending? Watch your addiction. Whether it's food, drinks, or party (because you’re always up for one), set aside a few hundreds from your salary every time and put it in your savings account.
 
 
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Four of Wands (Completion)
 
Sometimes your opposite can actually be your best mate. You’ll find yourself being questioned or having to disagree with someone who’s totally on the opposite end. But don’t be frustrated, Capricorn! Learn as much as you can from them, because they have sooo much to teach you.
 
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
The Emperor
 
Success is a powerful thing, but it’s not easy to get there. Try not to pressure yourself too hard to meet everyone’s expectation, Aquarius. Do what makes you happy instead. If you don’t want to go too far, don’t do it. Stop where you feel comfortable if you know you can’t handle the responsibilities.
 
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Princess of Swords
 
Everyone is rooting for you, but the only person who can actually encourage you is yourself. With everything falling out of place recently, believing in yourself is the only way you can get out of this mess. Oh and also, try to put a reminder every time you get a new task. It helps to get yourself on track, trust me.
 
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Two of Cups (Love)
 
They may seem so perfect on the outside, but without the ability to tango through the storm, your relationship may wither quickly like old leaves. So, if you want to make it work, be prepared to accept them in health and sickness. It’ll be tough since you have a huge ego to feed, but hang in there!
 
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Four of Disks (Power)
 
Without your lovely smile and your positive outlook in life, the world feels a little bit gloomy. So why not share it with others? This week is the time to share your happiness with those who are in dire need of positive vibes. Collect the good karma while you can, sister! :)
 
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Seven of Swords (Futility)
 
In love, there are decisions to make – a very urgent one. Well, don’t mull over it for too long, Gemini, because you may lose the chance entirely. My suggestion, go with your feelings and don’t let anyone dictate you. If you can’t make up your mind in a week, flip a coin! May the best answer wins!
 
Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Lust
 
If you can’t see what’s in front of you, maybe you should start listening to other people’s warning. With a heart like yours, Cancer, no wonder it’s hard for you to sniff out a liar. Just be careful when you open up your shell. Don’t be too gullible or too naive, or someone may abuse your kindness. It’s for your own good.
 
Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Eight of Wands (Swiftness)
 
The changes in your life is way too abrupt, it leaves you no time to pack your things. Whatever you’re going through right now, get ready to adapt to new culture. You may not like it, but it’s necessary for your learning. So suck it up and move on, big girl! Also, try not to whine because I heard it gives you wrinkles. :(
