Jupiter enters Virgo on August 11th (until September 9th, 2016) expanding the themes of this sign; details, improvements/corrections and health. Jupiter amplifies everything, which can translate into bigger flaws (Virgo is the fault-finding sign) but also bigger opportunities to fix what’s broken. For some, this transit can be a time when they do their best work; Jupiter can push through limits, elevating a specialized Virgo area into something fabulous.
August 14th brings us a New Moon in Leo, fired up by a liberating trine to Uranus Rx in Aries. This Moon will conjunct Venus Rx, and on August 15th, Venus Rx will conjunct the Sun, indicating a new phase in the Venus cycle. This adds up to new beginnings based on reevaluations of relationships, money, self-esteem, physical appearance and values. It’s a moment to start something new (something creative, romantic, dramatic or joyful) that reflects your authentic desires. Think about that for moment. What do you really want (as opposed to what you’ve been settling for)? What would make you truly happy? Most of us know the answer to this, but may discard it as being impractical or impossible. This New Moon (and Venus’ new cycle) asks you to consider what brings you true joy in love, career or life purpose. It seems simple on the surface, but the feelings associated with it are anything but. If the situation hi-lighted by these energies is beyond your control, know that the end result is still meant to put you in a better place.
This Moon will receive a tense inconjunct from Wounded Healer Chiron in Pisces, triggering reminders of old hurts, sensitivities or reasons why you may not “deserve” to be happy. Confront the uncomfortable moment, then keep moving forward.
Jupiter into your sector of routine can increase workload while giving you more energy and optimism to get things done. Self-improvement will be a major theme with this transit, as well as maximizing the potential of certain solutions. Since Jupiter expands everything, some of you may experience a flare-up of medical issues. It’s time to take a look at how your daily habits impact your life, and make the necessary changes.
The New Moon and Sun/Venus Rx activate your sector of self-expression, tuning you into a creative or romantic potential. Something/someone new and exciting could grab your attention, or you could be the one grabbing the spotlight with the launch of something fabulous. The trine to Uranus Rx in your sign gives you the momentum to break through limits, while Venus Rx suggests a shift in romantic expectations, or how you express your special purpose. Too, this new beginning could involve a release of something you’ve been fruitlessly pursuing; know that a goodbye will immediately open new doors. If background fears/secrets are spotlighted during the process, this is still your moment to revel in a fresh chapter that’s all about your authentic desires.

Jupiter in your sector of self-expression increases your drive for success, to be noticed, and to create. This is a powerful attraction transit for you, but it can also be powerfully self-indulgent. By all means, kick back and celebrate, but you’ll be missing out if you don’t address certain areas that call for improvement. A bit of polishing can net you tremendous gains. Keep working to make things better, even if you get what you want.
The New Moon and Sun/Venus Rx in your domestic sector suggest positive developments at home, or a chance to start fresh with family. You can write a new, more hopeful chapter that is quite different from your past history. Venus Rx indicates a reevaluation of domestic relationships/familial values.

There’s a possibility of emotional static involving friends, groups or your public image; when your personal light shines more brightly, it reveals bruises in your relationships with others.

Venus Rx suggests approaching an old/repeat issue from a different angle, or (in some cases) saying goodbye. Communication with those in authority, or involving your career, could be touchy, as vulnerabilities around professional status are revealed. Nonetheless, you’ve got energy in your corner that will enable you to spin things to your advantage.

Jupiter in your communication sector amplifies your words/ideas.

But with this emphasis comes increased attention to any mistakes you might make; make sure all your facts are correct. The pace of information coming at you can increase, as well as your hunger for knowledge. Sibling relationships can also gain prominence.
The New Moon and Sun/Venus Rx in your sector of personal resources can open a door to new financial opportunities, or help you re-set your financial habits.

Overall, this transit will urge you to look more closely at what Jupiter stirred up while it was in your sign, and what the next, practical steps are.

This is your chance to apply that focus you’re known for in a beneficial area, and make the most of it. Since Jupiter expands everything, this transit can also emphasize what’s in need of excision.

Calm, careful consideration will help you avoid turning small issues into larger issues.
The New Moon and Sun/Venus Rx in your hidden sector hi-light a background or unacknowledged issue that is, nonetheless, extremely important.

Venus Rx especially urges you to reevaluate how you express your needs/preferences amongst others. Watch for insecurities/resentments around unappreciated efforts or service to others. Too, a health issue can siphon off some of your public energy.

- New beginnings: friends, groups, the public, romantic shifts, new romance, public image, public launch/promotion
Jupiter in your social sector increases the amount of people crossing your path. This can be a tremendously social cycle as you’re exposed to new groups/ideas/cultures/activities.

This energy is excellent for careful cultivation and selection of social opportunities.
The New Moon and Sun/Venus Rx in your career sector can signal a new job, opportunity for advancement, or the launch of business/product.

It also increases public attention.
The New Moon and Venus Rx in your sector of opportunities continues the theme of new territory, as your eyes are drawn to something/someone unusual, distant or exotic. If you’re not sure whether you should take that leap, the answer is “yes.” Too, this could mark the launch of a crusade; you can make changes on a large scale, for the better. This can also mark the launch of a new phase of learning. Venus Rx can sometimes bring long-distance romance with a fated feel. Any new developments may cause the odd twinge involving home, family or childhood issues. You may feel more vulnerable as you step out, or find yourself dealing with an issue that you thought was long-gone. Acknowledge what’s happening, but keep moving forward. Don’t get sidetracked.

For some Capricorns, there may be an increase in legal issues.
The New Moon and Venus Rx in your sector of shared resources can help you dig deeper/find more while simultaneously bringing new life to a financial or emotional situation. Watch for improved intimacy with a partner, or a new approach to money that’s owed/shared. If a relationship ends, know that it’s part of Venus Rx’s reevaluation process; only the people with the most value for you have a place in your life now. Conversations that hit on ultra-sensitive subjects may come up during this time, or perhaps an uncomfortable secret. It’s all part of the process, and can’t be avoided as you enter these profound and authentic depths. Some Capricorns may experience a deep shift in an area (physical/mental) that’s completely beyond their control.

This can be a chance to source out new gains (a better approach to debt, a new approach to relationships) but it can also increase existing difficulties (more debt, increased feelings of dissatisfaction). Pay attention to any increases. If they’re positive, help them grow even more. If negative, know that this transit is primed to help you make the necessary fixes. If your feelings of emptiness intensify, maybe it’s time to do something about that.
The New Moon and Venus Rx in your relationship sector hit the re-set button on your love life. Whether there’s a new relationship, a goodbye, a chance meeting, or a moment of awakening regarding how you approach partnerships, these influences are your window to focus on how/if others bring joy into your life. Venus Rx is a potent moment to reevaluate how you project your desires for love and companionship. Watch for moments where you question whether or not you can “afford” a new development, or whether you can afford to continue on as you have been.
