|Mercury stations retrograde this week|
It's time to rethink your time, efforts, life purpose and vision.
What you discuss, write or think about today, will do well to have another look in the days ahead as Mercury will be going retrograde.
You can also read more about Jupiter and Venus meeting in Virgo here.
On Monday, August 29th, Venus enters Libra at 10:06 pm. This is wonderful for feeling more balanced and in tune with your senses. Your body is your temple, and this is time to appreciate it. Symmetry and good balance of color harmony tends to be well appreciated in art, design and in your fashion choices now.
This is an excellent time to get into yoga and practice your ability to synchronize and pose with symmetry. A more loving approach improves the quality of relationships.
This is a great time for Libra’s to feel more loved. A greater sense of self worth will attract better experiences, and help you to make better choices in your own best interest. Where there is real love, there is harmony. Air signs will also find the next few weeks to be more love-centric.
Mercury stations retrograde in Virgo on August 30, 2016 at 9:04 am. This is happening right next to Jupiter. Though a lot of people fear Mercury retrograde for all the tech issues, mixups and miscommunications that often are more notable, worrying will only emphasize issues further this time around.
With Mercury at home in Virgo, and so close to Jupiter, miscommunications aside, this can work out favorably overall. Going back over the finer details, especially regarding work, are ultimately in your best interest now. If you’ve been on autopilot with your schedule and lifestyle, this is the time to look at what needs improvement.
Ultimately Jupiter wants you to grow and has been signifying over the past year to get yourself in order. Now, with his final steps in Virgo, Mercury going retrograde has us taking a final look at what needs fixing and updating. Go over the details, so you are sure you’re on the track you want to be on.
Working on your skills with a much closer eye is recommended. Repetition is one of the more important keys to learning. You may need to repeat yourself more than usual. If your short term memory is generally not that great, this can help whatever you are working on stick better.
However, do be cautious if you’re spinning in circles. If you’re overdoing it and it’s not getting you anywhere, adjust your approach. It can be easy to get too hung up on the details, and even lean towards obsessive compulsive tendencies with Mercury retrograde now. If you feel like you’re wasting time, take another assessment of how your processes are helping or hindering your progress. Same actions equal same results.
Overall, it is self awareness and practical action that is required this week. Hoping and wishing is one thing, doing the work and paying attention to the details is another.
It's time to rethink your life purpose, vision, and how you are spending your time and efforts.
September starts off with a solar eclipse with the New Moon in Virgo on September 1, 2016 at 5:03 a.m. EDT. This can mark a significant new beginning particularly in business, work and lifestyle.
This New Moon solar eclipse connects closely with the North Node in Virgo as well, signifying how this can be a big moment of new beginnings that helps you get clearer on your path towards your destiny.
The old way of doing things, and the old way you identified with how you live your life day in and day out is sure to be replaced by the need to form new habits that create new opportunities for your life to improve. Some may manifest a new job, or have an all new schedule to contend with. Others will rethink career and work and try something new. It’s a good time to test new ground.
It’s best to get yourself highly organized. It’s a great time to take notes and keep a journal. Keeping track of how your life is developing can help you make better, smarter choices moving forward. It also gives you a chance to look back on what happened on certain dates so you can track your progress and recognize themes that stand out and have been developing and repeating in your life.
Whether you get an app or you use manual pen and paper, it is the act of setting goals and tracking your progress and habits that will make all the difference moving forward.
This is a good time to get yourself on a new health routine, especially replacing bad habits with good ones. Whether it is the way you think, the way you eat or exercise, it’s time to assess your habits and change them for the better.
The Sun and Moon are not in harmony with Saturn on September 1, 2016, which means it is reality check time. Changes and making forward progress can test your responsibilities, especially if you have a lot of work to do. If you tend to be the disorganized kind, there will be much more effort required to fix what isn’t working so you can see progress.
Some of us just don’t like change that much and prefer things to be as they are, but we can’t stop time and forward momentum. We need to face facts with whatever hasn’t been working and jump over hurdles to get ourselves on track. The detours remind us that we take another route.
The following day, on September 2nd, the Sun and Neptune stand across the sky. This can give us a bit of a foggy brain and a lack of clarity. But, the question that comes up is, “How can my life be useful and of service to others? Is what I’m doing respectful, compassionate and caring for the world around me?”
Sometimes we want to do things our way, but it’s also important to consider our karma and how our own choices impact the lives of others. Having more compassion and understanding for yourself and others can be the ticket to better lifestyle choices and work progress all around. Be patient and considerate for best results.
Mercury stationed retrograde on August 30, 2016. Mercury retrograde and Jupiter meet on September 2nd in the final degrees of Virgo. This is excellent for putting your thinking cap on and having another close look at your progress and the steps you’ve been taking to live up to your potential and the vision you have for your life.
Although Mercury retrograde is known for miscommunication, it is a great time to have a second, third and fourth look at your schedule and lifestyle routine to fix issues that haven’t been working. It’s also a good time to look at how much time you spend on health and wellness. Yoga and meditation can expand your consciousness and develop great, new ideas.
Jupiter has been in Virgo for about a year, which has put a lot of focus on growing our skills and talents. Now, with the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo kicking off the beginning of September, it’s time to look at what skills you enjoy most, that make you feel like you’re growing into your potential, that allows you to shine.
Virgo likes details, but Jupiter doesn’t so there has been a bit of a dichotomy with Jupiter here over the last year. There’s been a need to balance both the finer details and the big picture. Jupiter likes to have faith and philosophy, while Virgo is logic and practicality.
Virgo is the worrier and can be obsessive about what needs to be done, Jupiter is the dreamer that wants a fulfilling life of expansion and greater freedom and opportunity.
It’s been a good time to have the big vision in the background, while the day to day details get in order to make the climb towards the vision possible.
A vision board is a great example of how to use the good both have to offer. A vision board can provide a good balance of the dreamy vision at the top, but also focusing on the important steps to get there.
If you feel disorganized in general, try not to worry too much. It’s easy to be critical of your shortcomings now. Instead, just put some time towards cleaning things up. Mercury retrograde is a great time to go through old paperwork and files and do a bit of spring cleaning. It’s not a good time to throw anything out though, so do put your piles somewhere you can go back through them again if you need to. The process of clearing out your files can bring to your attention things you’ve forgotten, which could be useful in the future.
Mercury will be retrograde until September 22, 2016.
The Sun and the North Node meet in Virgo on September 4, 2016 at 4:18 pm EDT. You are likely to come to big realizations around this time that set you on the path to your destiny. Self knowledge gets amped up and improving habits comes into focus. For some this could be the day to finally quit smoking, or start exercising. It’s a great day to set yourself a goal and take proactive steps towards making your life better.

It’s a great week to go to a yoga class, try new ethnic foods and to read up on cultures you are less familiar with. If you’re traveling do be sure to double check your itinerary, Mercury retrograde can play tricks. You could be tempted to ask for a raise with Venus in your career sector, but if you’ve been making mistakes lately, you’ll need to prove yourself well for such a consideration to work out in your favor.
Aquarius: Time is money so it has been said. Some people want to make loads of money but don’t really want to do the work necessary. I knew an Aquarius that fervently believes in the 4 hour workweek, but the problem is that she wants that for herself but doesn’t truly value the time and energy of those that do the grunt work beneath her to help build her fortune. After being sweet-talked for many thousands of hours of work with a dangling carrot of false promises to help her build her priority of having fame, money and living the entitled high life, while I got so little in return for my efforts, I said no more and goodbye. Some people are just too self centered to consider those beyond their own ego, but like Mercury retrograde, can fool you with words and strategic manipulation. This week it is an awakening to money, time and debt that is in focus for Aquarians. If you want it all, it’s a good time to consider putting better processes in place. It’s time to rethink the vision and consider how you spend your time most efficiently. If you’re wanting or needing a loan, it could come through this week, but do read the fine print and make sure you really do want to put yourself in such a position of owing in the future.
Pisces: There’s much happening in your relationship sector this week - a New Moon, eclipse, and Mercury goes retrograde. This can be a brand new shift in your relationship status. Someone new could come into your life and give you an all new perspective having your rethink your priorities. It could be romantic or it could very well be in terms of business. This week reach out, listen, engage, and interact but do be extra attentive to communications. It’s important that if you are striking a business deal that you have all the details in order. Recheck facts and figures to the max so that you are absolutely positive that what you are getting into is in your best interest. Ask for a second opinion, this includes for health related matters as well. In your interactions with others, not all will be as it seems, so do pay close attention and spend some time pondering on your own. Perceptions can be off. It’s a good time to get back in touch with your body. Renewing a health and wellness routine with a partner can work out well.
I am so glad you enjoy these horoscopes. My hope is that you find them useful for your life.
