Virgo and the main transits in August 2019: drastic changes
One of the four most important astrological events that occur in August 2019 is a stellium in Virgo. Mars, Venus, the Sun, Juno, Mercury and even the Moon will enter the sign of Virgo and, as you can imagine, there will be a tremendous amount of energy in the air.
This event will have a profound impact in all Zodiac Signs, but Virgo will be the one managing drastic changes, both physical and psychological. So, what can we expect from Virgo and the main transits in August 2019?
Virgo and the main transits in August 2019: what kind of energies will be concentrated on this stellium?
A stellium occurs when three or more planets are closely together in one sign. In August, four planets plus the Moon will be concentrated in Virgo.
All begins on August 18 with the entrance of Mars in the sign of Virgo, which will be followed by Venus (21/08), the Sun (23/08), Juno (23/08), and Mercury (29/08). And it all ends with a New Moon in Virgo, on August 30. If you manage to ‘get out of this alive’, you will surely have the energy you need (and more) to start a new cycle! But, still, at what cost?
The big picture
Let us remember that Mars represents the primary impulse that moves all our actions. As the planet that emanates male energy, it plays a key role in how we deal with our primary energy – mainly the sexual one. Its influence on Virgo will be on the professional environment – translating into great practicality, efficiency and intense production.
On the other hand, Venus, the female planet, that represents love and everything that has to do with personal satisfaction (like money, possessions, food and travel) will create on the natives of Virgo a tendency to overanalyze feelings.
If you are a Virgo, you know that you strive for perfection in everything you do. However, and inflamed by Mars energy, this desire will hinder the emergence of new romantic relationships and block love from your life. You need to control the fiery energy of Mars if you want to get some balance between work and your social life.
The entering of the Sun is not going to help you on this quest. It will, so to speak, ‘illuminate’ some of your most important personality traits: efficiency; practicality; organization; perseverance. In spite of the dedication to the proposed objectives, they can be postponed due to the yearning for perfection. Imagine this: you are on fire, but you can’t go forward. So you stay still, while the fire consumes you.
And Juno will fuel this fire, since it will enhance your commitment to professional relationships as well as excessive criticism towards colleagues.
Mercury, your ruler, is not going to save you, since it shares with you that passion for logic and rationality. You have the same almost instantaneous ability to reason and an exaggerated tendency to detail. Mercury in Virgo had a enormous risk of getting burned out with its own mind.
The unexpected changes
All of the energies concentrated on this stellium can make you a great worker, super productive and efficient. You can have a great eye for the details and be very attentive to everything you work on. The downside is that you can also suffer from anxiety, worry and stress since you demand too much perfection of yourself.
We know you always favor reason over passion and despite you seem austere in the eyes of others, you are very generous. The stellium will enhance all of these characteristics, but it will also bring some drastic changes.
Somewhere along the process you will be aware of the reason why you are suffocating yourself with work. At this moment, you will feel the need to change your image – a radical air cut, new clothes, a new attitude. We think Venus will play an important role on this matter. Besides that, you will start to see a new perspective of reality – maybe, start accepting that the world is not perfect or realize you need to live better on your own skin. For an earth sign, that is not very fond of changes, this will be surprising.
As the stellium will end only on September 13, there is a high chance your Solar Return will happen between the stellium period. If this is your case, this is going to be a turning point in our life.
