August 2018: Your ruler Mercury is retrograde for most of the month, causing miscommunications and information lags. A sun-Mercury retrograde conjunction on August 8 wants to get information flowing freely, but you may be stuck in some red tape. Old issues come up now as well, so put your effort into solving them before you try to work on anything new. There’s a reason the same things keep coming up again and again.

When Mercury retrograde forms a square to Jupiter on the eleventh, you tend to have a broader outlook, so focusing on the smaller details might be difficult. Try not to look so far ahead that you lose sight of what’s important in the moment.

The sun enters precise Virgo on August 23, and you can’t always identify with the Virgin’s practical, “put everything in a neat little box” tendencies. As an air sign you like to take a much more free-spirited approach, so you might feel restricted and stifled for the coming month.

You could get recognized for your past efforts during the sun-Saturn retrograde trine on the twenty-fifth, but is it too little too late? You’ve probably already moved on and forgotten about this accomplishment. Onward and upward.
