When Uranus, the rebel of the zodiac (yes, Uranus rules Aquarius), goes retrograde for five months in Taurus on Wednesday, August 24, all signs must begin to identify what’s working for you and what’s not. Perhaps you need to switch up your social group, lover, or relationship to productivity and rest. Just remember that whatever changes occur, this retrograde happens yearly, and the stars want you to come out on top, so there’s no reason to stress. The next day, on Thursday, August 25, the messenger of the gods, Mercury, enters Libra, which is the sign of balance and justice. This transit helps you connect with yourself and get in touch with what you must let go to grow.
August closes with a dark new moon in determined Virgo on Saturday, August 27. Remember, new moons are an ideal time to set intentions, as they mark fresh starts and new beginnings. Use this night to write down your goals for Virgo season, Uranus retrograde, or even the rest of the year. Because, remember, darling, you deserve to have everything you want in this life. Keep reading to find out the specifics of what August has in store for your sign.
