VIRGO (August 23–September 23)
Power struggles when Mercury opposes Pluto August 1, control issues August 3 at Mercury's conjunction to Saturn set the stage for tons of unconscious projection and unexamined subconscious fears through August 18. Secrets you've been keeping forever threaten to jump right out of your mouth August 10; the temptation to use information as power over others is high August 16 when Mercury trines Mars. Knowledge is power when Mercury enters Virgo August 19, followed by the Sun August 22. Will you use this power for good? Mercury's trine to Uranus August 25 and Jupiter August 29 inspire greater magnanimity.
