August 23 – September 20
The Sun enters Virgo and Mercury goes retrograde in Virgo on August 23rd. Virgo is an earth sign ruled by Mercury. During the time while the Sun is transiting the sign of Virgo we will be concerned with our work, health and the practical matters of everyday life.
While Mercury is retrograde major life decisions should be postponed until we have carefully evaluated all of the factors involved. Mercury will return to direct motion by September 15th.
The key phrase for Virgo is “I Analyze.” Mental stress, anxiety and the tendency to over think things could produce health challenges at this time. It is wise to develop a daily practice of exercise, nutrition and meditation to reduce the experience of stress and anxiety.
Creative problem-solving opportunities are likely to be a regular occurrence. The Virgo soul needs to feel useful and productive. Harvesting a garden and helping others will assist personal wellness and clarity.
Virgo is a mutable sign. It is important to be flexible. Plans and policies are likely to change and we will need to adapt in order to be healthy and fully functional.
