Can you believe the summer is winding down already? This week we say goodbye to a particularly dramatic Leo season and hello to the “let’s just focus on the details” relief of Virgo season. The sun moves into Virgo on the 22nd—happy birthday to our intelligent, reliable and harmonious faves like Zendaya, Prince Harry and, of course, Beyoncé. Despite the Virgo help desk being open for business, communications might be all over the place this week as Virgo’s ruling planet Mercury is also taking a journey—connecting with confusing Neptune and heavy Pluto before entering fair and balanced Libra on the 25th.
The week ends with a new moon in Virgo on the 27th—an opportunity to clear the clutter and set intentions for fall. The sun squares off with Mars while Venus squares off with Uranus on the same day, pushing us even harder to change up our routines for the better.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)
