Weekly General Astrology Forecast August 17

18th – Mercury/Juno conjunct in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn

23rd – Sun enters Virgo

  • What do marriage or partnerships mean today?
  • How do we establish love?
  • Virgos enter their best cycle for 12 years

The talk this week should be all around the many different kinds of partnerships there are – and quite possibly how they may be changing in these contemporary times, especially when it comes to marriage as Mercury encounters Juno in Virgo and both trine Pluto planet of change and transformation in the sign of the establishment, Capricorn. So, we may see a continuation of the debate around what marriage should or should not be and even who should be allowed to marry who. Expect either more countries to support gay marriage or people to come out opposing it. We can say that on an individual level, we could be looking at the fine print when it comes to defining what it means to be part of a couple or a duo of some kind and devising an arrangement that either works for both parties – or doesn’t, irrespective of what others may say. It’s a time to look at how we establish and declare love within the collective and what determines marriage in general.


The Sun enters Virgo this week and Virgos out there are looking at their best year for quite some time thanks to Jupiter’s arrival in here ahead of the Sun on the 11th. It’s time to embrace the idea of expansion on some level – but in Virgo Jupiter’s benefits need work in order to manifest. Not that that’s a problem for the lucky Virgo’s as they instinctively know that nothing worthwhile is achieved overnight or by cutting corners and have no problem working and waiting for the results. The rest of us could do well to follow their example as no matter what house of your chart Jupiter is now in, he will be tempered by Virgo’s need to attend to details and put in the groundwork before results can be realised. Virgos most of all need to look back 12 years and recall what that birthday year brought them. You may see similar themes emerge. Provided you don’t expect to become an overnight one, at some point in the coming year, Jupiter ensures you will be successful – and sensational along with it. Happy birthday!
