August 26th Horoscope

MOON – VENUS – (Pluto) – MARS

This planetary row carries information on manifested pleasures of love in its purest form, and people born on August 26th need to follow their hurt even when they lack strength to endure. They are loving, caring and gentle, until their limits are breached and too many fences broken down. This is when they might get extremely destructive, towards themselves and others, if their ties were too intense and hold them tied instead of setting their spirit free. Their story is the story of emotion in its manifested form, and criticism won’t work well for these Virgos, even when it seems only logical to be restrictive of their own needs.

The power of creation hides in their second planetary row, showing their need to make something out of love, inspired by their relationships. To paint their inner colors onto the canvas of the outer world, they will have to get out of their shell though, brave enough to present their inner being in all its authenticity and glory, accepting and nurturing both their virtues and their flaws.

Love and Emotions

They will gather experiences, often from afar, until they find someone able to fulfill their emotional needs and won’t have trouble waiting for as long as it takes for the right person to come their way. Still, this may present an issue for it gets them stuck in platonic relationships that don’t change spontaneously, and this could lead to strange situations where they seem to be alone, although they don’t feel like they are.

They need to hold on to their grounding when feelings are involved to keep their relationships realistic and in tune with the beat of their heart. They need someone to inspire them and make them feel loved, and don’t have trouble fitting their relationships into social norms and limitations made by their family and friends, for as long as they are truly in love. If they find a person to make them laugh no matter the difficulties, struggles and conflicts, they will remain faithfully devoted for a lifetime.

"Two Guardian Angels"

These guardian angels represent the two loving entities in their planetary row and speak of their guidance on a much higher scale than we might anticipate. The great challenge of this time is in finding true inner faith that isn’t restricted by rules that are found anywhere outside of their heart, while still managing to function within systems of the time they live in.
