Virgo 23 Aug - 22 Sep
With Venus, the planet associated with
pleasure, love, beauty and the arts in Virgo,
your Sun sign, until mid-month, make the
most of opportunities for fun and romance and
to explore the garden of earthly delights. You’re
also likely to be even more adorable than usual, so
dress to impress and don’t be bashful if you find
yourself in Cupid’s line of fire.
Impatient, impulsive Mars, the planet in many ways the opposite of pleasure-loving Venus, is also in Virgo, your Sun sign, until 23 October. This is a very creative and even erotic combination and will add an urgency to your creative and romantic impulses. You may also find that in your dealings with others, you’re not sure whether to use persuasion or pressure to get your way. If in doubt, always start with persuasion and consider applying pressure and issuing ultimatums only as a last resort. Nevertheless, make the most of the added push, drive and determination Mars frequently bestows to help you get things done, even if that means you’re better off working independently.
With Mercury, your planetary ruler, meeting Jupiter in Scorpio around 18 October, this could prove to be a lucky few days so make the most of opportunities then, keep lines of communication open and to get out and about locally, you never know who you might bump into.
