Mercury Enters Virgo: Here’s Your Horoscope For the Week of August 9

Weekly Horoscope

Mercury is transiting to the sign of Virgo this August 11 and what it means for us is that we are going to be more practical with our choices be more precise with our plans in life. Be careful, though, of losing yourself in the details and of being too critical of others.

Here’s how the energies of this planetary transit will affect you this week!

Aries (March 21 to April 19)

A misalignment that persists in your life right now is blocking you from achieving your goals that were already within your grasp. Remember that a vital step to success is to regularly check in with yourself whether your decisions are still in line with your beliefs. Make sure that your goals will lead you towards self-fulfillment.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) 

You may be feeling frustrated right now because of a lack of clarity regarding your goals in life, unsure if you’re putting your talents to good use. Trust in the process! All your desires will come soon. For now, be grateful for all the blessings and stay true to yourself.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

This is a period of giving and receiving, as well as a time for deep introspection. Look inside yourself to know what’s missing in your life or to just give yourself a break from the everyday hustle. As you breathe in the blessings that are coming your way, also open yourself up to sharing them tenfold with those who need them.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Tons of things that are happening in your life are making you want to reevaluate your goals and how you’re living from day to day. This doesn’t mean that you should worry about the future; it just means that you need a change of perspective. Be inspired to take a different approach to achieve success and don’t give up!

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You may be feeling powerless right now as responsibilities continue to pile up. Nothing seems to be going your way and it’s starting to make you question your self-worth. Stop pressuring yourself to meet other people’s expectations. Struggles and failures are a part of the process. So be kind and patient to yourself.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Your relationships are not going so well at the moment perhaps due to a lack of communication or persistent power struggles. You need to talk it out and make sure that every person’s concerns are heard so that you can reach a compromise. Note, however, that if it seems hopeless to do so, then it’s probably time to reevaluate your relationships.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Obstacles in your life may leave you feeling frustrated and overwhelmed. If you’re struggling to adjust to these setbacks, then try to reevaluate your plans. But stay patient! Take things one step at a time. Things will get better from here; you just have to have faith.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Certain situations in your life may have left you feeling like everything and everyone is against you. Be honest with yourself so that you can figure out the root of these problems. At this time, prioritize self-reflection, learn from your failures, and make better plans to improve.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You may feel as though all your efforts have been going to waste because of a lack of results or lack of proper recognition. Change your motivations! Remind yourself why you did this thing in the first place—not for fame or success, but out of pure joy. Stay your true, authentic self!

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Time to reevaluate what’s working for you or not in your plans. You may feel like your emotions are influencing your decisions a lot more lately which is fine as long as you are able to create stability for yourself. Trust your gut and seize opportunities that you know will benefit you in the long run!

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Emotionally, you aren’t feeling your best as you find yourself clashing with peers or loved ones. You have to now reevaluate whether you’re ready to be the bigger person and surrender or just step back for the sake of your mental health. Remember: not all wars have to be fought.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You may be feeling frustrated over not getting what you think you deserve, but you have to remember that desiring to have the best of everything will only lead you down the path of disappointment. Stop pressuring yourself to be perfect; just be you! After all, will you really let material success define your self-worth?
