We have to be honest with you, darling Virgo – August is apt to be messy. Since you're not the biggest fan of chaotic scenarios, at least you'll get a chance to ready yourself, both emotionally and practically. This mega-cray month brings both two eclipses and a Mercury Retrograde – all in the same four-week period. If that sounds nuts, it's because it is. So first – deep breaths! Next, get down to the business of prepping. The first eclipse arrives on the 7th in the form of a Full Moon/Lunar event, and it's a deep one for your mind-body connection. The more you focus on balance and self-love, the better you'll fair. And yes, you should throw in as many meditation sessions and restorative yoga classes as you can. Turning off your gadgets, avoiding the news, and considering a mini-vacay the weekend before the eclipse are also suggested. Next up is your ruler Mercury's turn to shake up the scene by going retrograde on the 12th. Of course, you'll feel this from the start of the month (you probably even felt it in July.) This is made even more intense by one important factor – Mercury is currently in your own sign. This is yet another reason that being on holiday in August is a wise idea – for as many days as possible. Just make sure that if you leave during the retrograde that you check your itinerary at least eight times, and then expect to run late anyway. More big news comes on the 21st with the second eclipse in the series. This one is a New Moon in your dream zone – yes, your psyche is the locus of much astro-activity, and it can make you feel very off-balance if you push too hard. Again – take time off and go slow. But remember this, Virgo – you're setting the scene for some spectacular personal growth by next winter. Your life is changing now and it might be scary at first – but it's changing for the better.

July was not built for sensitive types like you, sweet Virgo, so you may need to take cover now and then – especially at the very start of the month. Mars and Pluto clash on the 2nd and there's so much anger and volatility roiling that you may want to preempt it all by disengaging from your gadgets – and pouring yourself a glass of rosé before noon. The Full Moon is the following weekend (early on the morning of the 9th) and it's opening up your romance zone – so it's one of the loveliest lunations of the year. Yes, it's true – it can bring a bit of drama to relationships with new lovers or long-term partners. But this is also breakthrough energy, so if you've been struggling with an issue for a long time, you might just fix what's broken now. It's a super romantic weekend for single Virgos too – even if you're not longing for love, you won't lose out, because your creativity is also peaking now. Do tap into the excitement during the early part of the month because after the 20th you'll likely want to retreat a bit. Mars moves into your dream zone on the 20th, followed by the Sun on the 22nd and the New Moon on the 23rd. This doesn't mean you need to lock yourself in your bedroom and meditate like a monk for the next few weeks, but it does mean that your psyche is extremely active now. If you ever wanted to be a wellness guru, or just act like one, now's the time to blend that green smoothie. Whether or not you Instragram it is entirely up to you
