Travel Horoscope Of The Week: 16.08.21

Your essential guide to the week ahead from Citizen Femme’s resident astrologer, Zana Wilberforce.

In the final throes of summer, there will be a dramatic shift in energy as the Sun departs Leo and enters Virgo on 22 August. Virgo season is like a breath of fresh air following the chaos and calamity of a month-long cycle in a passionate fire sign, offering rest, respite, and a chance to come back down to earth.

For the next four weeks, there will be more emphasis on routine and health, which is where a wellness experience comes in or a resurrected workout routine. On the same day, there will be a full moon in Aquarius, one of two this year, marking a supercharged moment of clarity. Find out what these astrological events mean for travel, according to your sign.

January 20 – February 18

The second of two full moons in your sign points to your humanitarian and collaborative efforts.

July 23 – August 22

You’re trading the high energy of your birthday season for a slow and mindful next few weeks when the Sun enters practical Virgo.

August 23 – September 22

Happy solar return, Virgo!
