VIRGO (August 23–September 23)
Mercury opposite Saturn and trine Chiron August 1–2 forces you to confront the limitations you’re willing to live with to avoid dealing with your own feelings of vulnerability. Emotional extremism is the danger at Mercury’s opposition to Jupiter right before entering Virgo August 10–11. Perfectionism is a double-edged sword! Confrontations over security issues arise at Mercury’s conjunction to Mars August 18; surprising solutions appear out of thin air August 20–24, widening your options and giving you some breathing room. Mercury enters partnership-positive Libra August 30 at Last Quarter Moon in Gemini; it’s not too late to change your mind!
