Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
Rushing into a relationship? Whether for business, pleasure or another purpose, don't be too quick to sign on any dotted lines. Today, as amicable Venus clashes with ambiguous Neptune, you may realize that you're unsettled by the way a partnership is progressing. You don't have to pull the plug, Virgo, but some changes could be in order. Perhaps you've made too many concessions to please the other person, and now you're feeling resentful. Or maybe you have unanswered questions about their future plans. Sit down to brainstorm, and get the truth onto the table. A creative compromise may be required to align your goals.
Today's cosmic cocktail: Mix equal parts business and pleasure and shake it up. The zodiac’s "great benefics," Venus and Jupiter, shift into an auspicious formation in your money houses today. Don't be shy about talking shop with the people closest to you—and by all means, make that cold call! Venus gives you the power to charm anyone who comes across your path, while Jupiter supplies the nerve to pitch your wildest hares. Opportunity is everywhere you turn, from the boardroom to your very own bedroom.
Read the room, Virgo. You might notice a more formal than expected vibe in the air today, thanks to a mashup of civilized Saturn and messenger Mercury. Good thing you checked before you let it all hang out! You might lose your audience by being "too much too soon." Don't suppress yourself, though! Just warm 'em up slowly with safer subjects that are friendly yet somewhat personal. By the end of the day, everyone will be hugging, laughing and even sharing some intimate secrets.
Gather your crystals and light up the sage wand. Energizer Mars floats into your soulful twelfth house until September 5—a somewhat awkward cycle that might make you feel tired and wired at the same time. Use this juice to clear your space, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Release old stuff, including limiting beliefs and situations you've outgrown. During this cycle, you'll need to learn how to "actively relax." Try moving meditations like yoga, quiet walks through nature and certain types of dance like Nia or 5Rhythms. Though emotions can be overwhelming at times, detoxify with clean whole food instead of numbing out with unhealthy snacks and bottomless margaritas.
Flap those butterfly wings, Virgo! The Sun spends its final day of 2017 in Cancer and your outgoing, communal eleventh house. With the warm-hearted moon riding shotgun in Cancer, an impromptu barbecue—or dinner at the ten-person table—could be the perfect way to wrap the workweek. At the office, get the hive mind together for a bit of brainstorming. Don't put off those technology to-dos, as the eleventh house is also your celestial "support desk." Today, install the software update or download an app that will add more efficiency to your workflow.
That beach umbrella is calling, Virgo, and the trashy novel too (we won't tell). This Saturday, the Sun slips into Leo and your twelfth house of closure and rejuvenation. As you count down to Virgo season on August 22, clear the decks of all the things you DON'T want to drag into your next year of life. But first, recharge. This is the sleepiest time of your annual solar cycle. It can be hard to get anything off the ground—especially if you're carrying baggage (literally or emotionally). The three Ds for you are now: de-stress, declutter and detox—in between naps, massages and bubble baths, of course. On Sunday, there will be a new moon in Leo, the first in a back-to-back pair. (The second is a solar eclipse on August 21.) These moonbeams guide you toward "sherpas" like a therapist, shaman or holistic healer who can support you in making a transition from your old world to your new and improved one. A thirty-day detox program can regenerate your body. Sweets and frozen drinks are awesome, but think about how great you'd feel if you didn't wake up hungover every morning!
