Mercury Retrograde... Weekly Sun Sign Astrology Horoscopes for August 28 to September 3, 2017

Now in season, Chrysanthemums symbolize optimism and joy! Make it a good week!

5 Key Points for this week...

1. Avoid distractions

What is your time going towards? We only have so much time to get the things done in life that matter most. Are you distracted by technology? Are you on your phone too much? Are you spending an excessive amount of time playing video games, watching too much television, or scrolling through social media feeds?

This is the time to make an assessment of your time. Creating a schedule that allows time designated specifically for your down-time is recommended. If you intersperse your habits at random through your day, your productivity level will decline and it will take you longer to reach more important goals.

With the Sun in Virgo and Mercury Retrograde in Virgo early in the week, it’s a good idea to get real about what is a habitual pattern of distraction in your life, and fix it. Technology and information sharing can be especially strong time consumers that need to be addressed now.

2. Mind your money

Taking stock of your financial picture is especially important with Mercury Retrograde in Virgo. Having another look at your past spending habits is recommended. If you haven’t been tracking your income and expenses, this is the week to make that spreadsheet.

Regardless of your financial status, whether you have a lot or a little, responsibly managing your money will help you get your life on track. Fixing previous mistakes and ensuring you don’t repeat them is valuable.

Though saving is more suitable than spending now, the urge to mindlessly spend on entertainment and fun is heightened. Gambling with the intention of a big windfall can lead to excessive loss, disappointment and lack of satisfaction. It is more empowering to be grounded, decisive and practical, and more conservative with spending rather than being frivolous. When spending on anything, consideration for long term consequences is recommended now.

3. Diminish worry and stress

Virgo is a sign notorious for worry, due to the nitpicky, meticulous, detail oriented way of seeing the world.

Worry and stress are a natural part of life, going hand in hand with our survival instinct. But for some, especially when Mercury is Retrograde in Virgo, worry can get out of hand.

From biting nails, to sleepless nights, to more serious obsessive compulsive disorders, repetitive, habitual behavior can be formed as a coping mechanism to relieve worries and stress.

This week is a good time to have a closer look at what worries are repeatedly affecting your life or holding you back. Working on breaking the cycle, and finding better outlets for stress is recommended this week.

Health and wellness approaches are best suited. If you find yourself slipping into bad habits, consciously stop yourself and find a healthier replacement. Instead of biting your nails, perhaps do a downward dog. If you can’t sleep at night because your mind is racing, get up and read a book… The trick is to consciously replace the bad habit with something different and beneficial so you can create concrete, practical changes that matter.

Getting rid of clutter and mess early in the week can help reduce worry and increase a sense of personal power.

4. Focus on talents and skills

What’s more important to you, talents or skills?

Talents are natural parts of your personality and are something you don’t have to think too much about. They are more naturally embodied as a part of you, and are more fluid, creative and inspired.

Skills are learned through practice, trial and error, and can usually be developed by most people with enough time and effort dedicated to improvement. They are more logical and structured.

But both talents and skills benefit from repetition. The more you express your talents or utilize your skills, the more comfortable and better you’ll get.

This week is a good week to address the skills and talents that deserve more of your time. Fixing your schedule so you have more time to focus on developing your skills can be your ticket to professional development. Experimenting and exploring talents that have been hidden below the surface for too long is recommended.

However, in terms of talents and skills, this isn’t the best time to hop on a karaoke machine and belt out a song you haven’t practiced much. You could very well end up making a fool out of yourself and the emotional memory could stay with you for longer than you’d like.

Creative types should find themselves getting extra inspired by all types of arts and entertainment this week. Vintages will have a greater appeal on the senses too.

Mercury Retrograde leaves Virgo and re-enters Leo on August 31, 2017 at 11:32 am ET.

5. What did you say? Gossip can get overheated. 

Fire and Air dominate this week’s activity. Emotional reactions can easily sway behaviors and responses.

Mars and Uranus connect on September 2, 2017. Issues surrounding ego, identity, personality and behavior can lead to impulsive, automatic, surprising actions and reactions.

This is not a good time to gossip about friends, acquaintances, or especially enemies. Saying the wrong thing at the wrong time is highly likely. Talking behind someone’s back is likely to stir up dramatic issues and could lead to combative responses - verbal and even physical depending on who it is.

If the intention of gossiping about someone is based on trying to get another to side with you, it could very well backfire. Opinions formulated on hearsay can get messy. If what is said has weak backing and lacks concrete information, an opposing response could easily shake things up.

Not only is talking behind someone’s back likely to get under people’s skin easily, but it could create an extended drama that you just don’t need in your life. Silence can be your best response when anger, irritation, annoyance are dominant. Secrets are less likely to be held in confidence as the urge to talk behind the scenes is heightened.

In all communications this week, when talking to people, it is not just what is being said that is important. Making sure others understand what you are saying matters most.

Mercury Retrograde enters Leo on August 31, 2017 and Mercury meets Mars in Leo on September 3, 2017.

Virgo: Mercury is Retrograde in your sign early in the week which has you reevaluating your life. It is your habits and lifestyle that especially define you now, so assess how you are using your time. If you are a worrier, acknowledging your repeating negative thoughts is recommended. If you are consistently hung up on particular issues, it could be damaging. Try not to be obsessive. Though mindless distractions can pull you off course, positive and mindful distractions from unnecessary worry can be beneficial.

Early in the week is best suited for a review of your career and lifestyle direction. As the week continues it is your higher aims, and the reasons for them, that deserve a review. Creativity of all kinds, including entertainment, can be your best teacher now. Ask and you will learn.

Capricorn: Your long-term transformation is peppered with many minor adjustments. This week is a good time to review the larger picture and your higher aims, along with the finer details. Where are you wasting time and misdirecting your time and energy? To get where you want to go, you’ll need to assess how the day to day process impacts the longer range outcomes. The stepping stones are as important as the big vision. Looking at your financial resources, and where you’ve perhaps made mistakes in the past regarding debts and borrowing, can help you minimize future risks. Revisiting long lost talents can bring you the right inspiration you need now.

Aquarius: Reevaluating financial issues related to your lifestyle choices is recommended this week.

Reinforcing good habits and doing away with the ones that drain your time, money and energy is essential now. Reassessing your relationships will become more important as we head into the middle and later parts of the week. Miscommunications can change everything so be sure that you are as clear as possible and listen well. It is essential that you remember that your point of view isn’t the only one that matters. If egotism dominates, dramatic responses are likely. You can expect the unexpected in relationships of all kinds this week.

Pisces: Are you reserving your time and energy for the right kind of relationships? Are you using your life energy to serve people you genuinely want to be of service to? This is a good week to reevaluate priorities, especially regarding the types of people you associate with and how much time you dedicate to others.
