Virgo is the sign in the zodiac that is most dedicate to service and it has an acute attention to detail. They have a deep sense of humane which makes them the best caregivers, while their methodical approach to life ensures that nothing is missed. The Virgo is often delicate and gentle, and it prefers to take a step back to analyze before going forward.

Be inspired to dress up more and be entertained by your friends and admirers when Mercury conjoins Venus on August 6. At the New Moon of August 14, someone may surprise you with a personal gift or favor that you may not want to accept. You're more than worthy of it, so be gracious and find a way to reciprocate if you must (but nothing is expected in return). Dreams of the perfect love could flood your mind and heart under the Full Moon on August 29. You're tremendously attractive and desirable now, so be wise to the attention you attract.
Love - Romantic
This month, your sign is primed to make a move in love. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th bring astrological influences friendly to you and your partner in terms of communication. You both have some things to bring to the table now, but with some creativity you can see eye to eye. As you get closer together, talk more and share feelings, you're also being asked to open your heart a little more. Truly being in love means accepting all the little flaws in each other, and sometimes your sign isn't that great at doing this. However, on the 7th and 8th, you're finding more and more ways to not just tolerate but accept what makes you different from one another. By the 12th, make sure you're telling the whole truth. It may be easy to slip into a little white lie to save someone's feelings. But you'll know you lied, and it ends up eating away at the relationship. Instead, try being diplomatic and loving if you have to broach a difficult subject. Single Virgo natives can expect a surprise around the 19th and 20th, when someone from the past tries to reconnect. Is it love, lust, or something in between? Only you can decide as you get to know each other all over again.
Business - Money
August offers a waiting list of potentials, and hang on because things move quickly. The first eight days of the month, while careful, prudent thoughts are admirable, be open to new ideas and adventure. And get used to the approach because on the 11th, you begin a one-year cycle of high energy and expansion at an awesome rate - if you're game. Within this transit lies additional confidence and courage. You know, you limit what is called 'risk' by being prepared (and few are better at preparation than you!) The 15th and 16th are lucky days, and though it's a weekend, you can still be productive. Classified ads are out there if you're job hunting. Resumes and cover letters can be sent. Expect a few unusual experiences on the 20th, but they aren't bad as surprises go. From the 26th to the end of the month, cooperation is both given and received. This is also the opportune time to share a few of your incredibly efficient, constructive ideas. Encourage people, but don't do it for them. September offers a chance to go back and make adjustments under lucky vibes. You could also find out where you may have overlooked something important.
