Prepare for an energetic shift, because your horoscope for the week of August 22 to 28 begins on the same day the sun enters Virgo. This clever and analytical earth sign is all about purity, cleanliness and rejuvenation (which is why it’s no wonder Virgo is also symbolically tied to the “virgin”). Embrace what Virgo season has to offer, because it will help you get organized and intentional about your goals.
Believe it or not, Virgo isn’t the only sign making an entrance this week. After all, on August 25, Mercury—planet of communication—will also enter talkative, flirty and diplomatic Libra.

Allow Mercury in Libra to not only enhance your social life and your love life, but it will also give you the tools to solve problems rather than cause them.
However, that might be easier said than done once the sun in Virgo squares off with Mars in Gemini on August 27.

You’re not always in control of your emotions, but you do have a say in how you act on them.
As a new moon in Virgo rises on August 27 at 4:16 a.m. ET, it will inspire you to set a new intention and allow it to guide you forward.

However, Virgo also loves an honest day’s work, so allow this new moon to show you the way around procrastination and toward productivity.
As Venus—planet of love—forms an opposition with stoic and inhibiting Saturn on August 28, this week comes to an end on a sobering note. You may become more aware of what is and *isn’t* working for you in your relationships, and if finding common ground feels impossible, listen to what your gut instinct is telling you.
Here’s what you can expect from the upcoming week, according to your sun and/or rising sign:
