Virgo August 22 – September 22
The month begins with an urge for time alone as a healing retreat from the busyness of everyday life. Look for ways to recharge before you begin your birthday celebrations. As the sign most dedicated to serving others, ask yourself, would it be rewarding to focus on looking after yourself for a change? Consider having a regular digital detox where you shelve your devices for a day, make time to get a massage or take a weekend getaway – whatever inspires you to rest and relax so you can enjoy some well-deserved peace and quiet. Be open to listening to your gut feelings in quieter moments or take note of bright ideas that might come up over a coffee as these can act as a kind of personal guidance system to steer you towards a renewed sense of vitality and passion for life. Try to keep a clear head about any challenges that may surface around your health, job or pets on August 15 and 16. Around the 23rd, as your birthday month begins, you could be inspired to see yourself afresh and focus on polishing your self-image or physical appearance. You may opt for a different hairstyle, invest in some new clothes or decide to take a surprising change of direction.

Libra September 23 – October 23
This is your month to enjoy being popular! Others will be attracted to you and you may make a new friend, get behind a charity or sign up with a fun social group that lights up your life in the best possible way. Channel your increased passion and energy mid-month into pleasures such as sports, romance, offspring or creative projects, especially in your local area.
Best days: August 5-6, 31
Scorpio October 23 – November 22
Prepare to be in dazzling form at the beginning of August when you may attract welcome attention for your talents and skills from higher-ups or those in authority. Be aware emotions may run high at mid-month in home and family matters, however. Try to remain cool-headed and detach as much as possible from other people’s dramatic behaviour. If you engage, there could be fireworks!
