Your Virgo monthly horoscope for July 2018 could mean you realize that kinship is really thin on the ground. This then is the ideal time to consciously work at making new friends. The best way to do this is joining common interest groups or start up a ‘meet up’ group of your own that arranges outings to your favorite places. These could be art galleries, historical places or concerts. If we tend to fall into the same old habits when we socialize, this month could change all that. Be adventurous and get cultural, rather than meeting at that same old bar or pub. From Jul 23 you will want to retreat into some quality alone time. Be sure to get the rest you need before your very busy birthday month to come after Aug 23.
The June 28 Full Moon 6º Capricorn for you has an incredibly soft-focused, right-brained, feminine energy. You will feel more drawn to women, whether you are male or female. You will want to spend time in pretty places, and gaze at colours and items that are easy on the eye. The absolutely worst place to be would be at this Full Moon for you would be on a loud, clanking building site surrounded by sweaty, obtuse males. Do yourself a favor and keep away from pubs that show big-screen rugby for the next two weeks. If you are a meaty rugby guy yourself, you might feel out of sorts, well this is why… Don’t worry yourself, all things pass! Enjoy this easy going, bubble-gum Full Moon while it lasts.
Virgo Monthly Love Horoscope ~ If you are in a relationship then you will have to put your own needs aside for the next few weeks and devote yourself to looking after your partner. This is because they may become ill, are going through some kind of cold turkey, are grieving or have suffered some misfortune at work. This all means you have to put on your nurse’s hat while you bandage their wounded self-esteem or make chicken soup for their flu. Venus in this sector means self-sacrifice, which is fine when there is a valid reason, but once the crisis is over the martyrdom must stop.
Mars Retrograde ~ June 27 until August 28
Mars Retrograde can feel quite inflamed in the house of health, you might get quite sweaty while it’s here and have strange rashes. But this doesn’t have to be the case if you are open and honest with your feelings and don’t keep your anger bottled up. Otherwise this is where Mars will do its psychosomatic thing and show up as weird symptoms. Your body will speak to you in strange ways, have look at what ‘nasty boil on chin’ means. You will learn that every part of the body corresponds to a humour, it’s not just for medieval doctors! At this time you could benefit from a good detox, so refresh your blood. Again you don’t need to get hold of some leeches, but foods that purify the blood such as cabbage, lemon and garlic will be very beneficial at this time. Mars rules the blood and iron, so check iron levels also. Apart from health, this is also the house of daily work and servants. From Aug 13 Mars enters your pleasure zone. In terms of starting a love affair, there could be a period of shy courting, where you enjoy the chase and hype up expectations. This becomes like the drawing back of the arrow before it is released. Mars then hits the target at twice the speed since it has build up such traction. So, play this strategically and resist the temptation to rush in and spook your prey! Yes it will feel like you are on a hunt, but Mars is not the god of sex and war for nothing.

If all is well in your psyche and you have done enough self work then the blurring of boundaries will just give you a heightened feeling of intuition. Therefore, the next 6 months could be a great period for artistic expression, as you effortlessly pull music and harmony out of the ether.
Virgo Monthly Horoscope ~ August
The Virgo monthly horoscope for Aug 2018 could bring the possibility of your ego dissolving into a puddle and you could feel quite lost. All you can do really is to surrender to the sea of uncertainty and go with the flow of your unconscious mind. It will feel at times that you are in a waking dream, so pay attention to the images that float in and out of the fog. You might also feel that you need a lot more sleep than usual. What is really happening is you are in a cocoon-state waiting to be reborn into your birthday month. Even if you are reading this for your ascendant it still feels the same kind of vibe because you cannot quite access the energizing solar energy while it is skulking in the sign that shadows your rising sign. Worry not, as after Aug 23 you will feel totally refreshed if you are kind to your body and give it the chance to do what it does naturally, rest when it needs rest!
The July 27 Lunar Eclipse 4º Aquarius will put into focus practical matters and the need to organize your life. Habitual reactions are strong at the moment, so much so, that if you want to replace one bad habit with a good one, you will easily fall into the new routine. This is a great time to start an exercise program while you are much less swayed by emotional impulses and your willpower is strong. Niggly health issues could show up as well. This is the time to give your body your full attention because if you don’t it will only howl more loudly. Yin yoga is recommended!
Virgo Monthly Love Horoscope ~ Venus is blossoming in your own sign this is the time to go for your dream lover.
