Sun enters Virgo, Mars moves into Scorpio

Monday, 20th - Saturday, 25th August 2012

On Wednesday 22nd (18.07 BST) the Sun moves into Virgo. The playful Leo time gives way to considering work issues. There’s a need to create something of value, to be of service to others, and to nurture the planet in some small way.

With the upcoming Sun opposition to Neptune on Friday 24th August, there can be a feeling of a lack of clarity, a bit like walking around in fog. If possible, leave major decisions until this aspect has passed, especially if you were born in early Virgo or Pisces.

The other noticeable shift this week is on Thursday, 23rd August, when Mars moves from Libra, to Scorpio (at 16.24 BST). Scorpio is one of the natural ‘homes’ of Mars (the other being Aries). Scorpios may feel more passionate and dynamic than usual, but may need to watch becoming too intense.

The Moon moves through the signs of Libra (Monday, 5.45 am BST – Wednesday, 8.54 am BST), Scorpio (Wednesday until Friday 11.50 am BST), when it moves into Sagittarius.

The most conducive time for social activities is on Thursday, 23rd, especially in the morning. There could be tension and unexpected occurrences on Monday evening, and a feeling of ‘what is going on?’ on Friday 24th, especially in the early afternoon (BST time).

The beginning of the Bank Holiday weekend, in the UK, sees positive vibes for communication, although a tendency to overdo in some way.

It’s generally a good week for study, learning something new, having a positive attitude, and expecting the best!

All times shown are British Summer Time (BST), which is one hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
