August 23 – September 22
As a Virgo and an earth sign, you’ve an amazing ability to analyse and deal with the most complicated of situations before others have even come to grips with them. Yet you’re also flexible and will happily rethink plans as circumstances change. Initially, however, you could struggle with the extent and unexpected nature of events during the last half of 2014.
Once you understand that, while certain decisions are up to you, a great deal is in the hands of others or, often, a matter of destiny, you’ll focus on those decisions that are yours to make and allow the rest to unfold as they must.
Initially this might seem risky, and you might fear that by leaving so much to fate you’re being weak. But the fresh perspective that accompanies the Virgo New Moon, on August 25, is both reassuring and helps you understand how you’ll benefit from even unsettling changes.

by expansive Jupiter’s alliance with inventive Uranus on September 25.

Once you’re satisfied with an arrangement in any area of your life, you tend to stick with it. This period challenges that side of your nature. Be prepared to rethink your lifestyle, work or long-term goals. While you may not make those changes until mid-2015, the more options you explore now, the better prepared you’ll be to take advantage of a period that isn’t just about doing things differently, but about living a happier and more rewarding existence.
