Hello Mercury Retrograde!
We have quite a bit happening in the way of the planets this month so expect to have a mish mash of happenings to take place. We begin the month with reflection. We take the initiative to take control of our mindsets by shifting our focus from the negative to the positive. In fact, we manage this so well, that we become an inspiration to others around us to do the same. It’s about juggling our various roles and expectations as well. It might get a bit much for us or we may find it hard to gain an objective understanding. So try to look outside of yourself or seek a professional’s opinion when in doubt. New ideas around work or business surface around the third week of the month. No time is wasted in moving things forward. Moods turn south towards the end of the month. It might be time to let go of what has been bringing you down. It may have to do with your past, people around you, work. It’s time to take a rite of passage to allow yourself the opportunity to heal and build a future where you can be happy and celebrate life.
Also, we will be having Mercury Retrograde beginning on the 27th of September!
Happy Birthday Virgo!
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
It’s quite an interesting month ahead for you Virgo. You seem to be clear about the direction of your path and at the same time seeking to slow things down to ensure you have covered all ground before moving ahead. It’s important that you love what you do and the end product be a reflection of the passion and love that you put into it. Investment in the form of money will be required to move your dreams forward. This may come in the form of a loan or help from someone you may know. You just need that little lift and you are pretty much on your way to carving your dreams into reality.
Aries (Mar 21– Apr 19)
There is a reason to celebrate this month. After being stuck for some time, and not knowing which way you were heading, you have received some news that is providing some clarity. If it’s a reply to the purchase of a property or anything else that is life changing, you will be pleased to know, you can now get on with your life and make the plans that you have been waiting to unleash for some time. Get ready to pop that champagne!
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
If looking farther afield to seek growth is muddling up your direction or thought process, then it might be better to look closer to home and take smaller steps rather than leaps. A good place to start would be right back at the starting point. Why did you start what you have in the first place? That should get you back to the fundamental reason and rebuild from there all over again. Don’t look at this as a wasteful exercise but an opportunity to fine tune.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
Things are looking unclear this month. That’s because you are juggling far too many plates at a time trying to get too many things done all at the same time. How are you ever going to get focused? Never! I say! So, get your act together! Prioritise your to do list! Or if you haven’t even got a to do list. What are you waiting for? Your job this month is to declutter your mind and space and to plan your task list ahead. So you can actually begin to see some concrete results!
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You are taking it nice and easy this month, Cancer. And it’s all for a good reason. Get your sun lounger out and make yourself a nice tipple and arm yourself with a notebook and begin devising a plan. You are at a point in your life or time in the year when you are reflecting on what you have achieved and what you could possibly work on in the future. These may be plans around your finances, picking up a new skill or thinking about bringing your beer brewing skills up a notch and starting a little business for yourself. So it could literally be about anything under the sun this month!
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
It’s decision time this September. And it isn’t an easy one to make. You need to move things forward and need to be clear about the direction you wish to move things into. Perhaps speaking to others and seeking ideas and input should be kept to a minimum while you reach within the depths of yourself and listen to that inner voice for answers and guidance. Too much white noise is going to cloud your thought process. This is something you need to work on by yourself. Good luck with that!
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You feel calm and so do your surroundings this month. In fact, dare I say, everything feels lovey dovey. Everything that you could wish for has come around. It feels like it’s been worth the wait. And you find yourself being very patient and empathetic with people around you. Your intuition and creativity are heightened this month. So make the most of it this month to enjoy the things you do and express yourself in ways you have always wanted to.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
There is an idea or inspiration this month to begin something which could result in material gain. You seem to be at the right place in your life to be able to devote some time to this as it doesn’t take your time away from family or personal time. Be aware though, you are entering an arena which is rife with competition and take time to pause and reflect from time to time before you move forward strategically.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
The plans that you have been making may not be completed this month. Instead, everything as you know it halts or falls apart. Rather than feeling devastated by your circumstances, you choose instead to take a sympathetic view to things. Perhaps things weren’t in alignment with your higher purpose and hence didn’t materialise. Or perhaps there was still more to do and learn before you can achieve completion. There is going to be a lot of reflection and realisation this month. But whatever takes place this month, won’t deter you from trying again.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You might be taking on more than you can handle this month and because of this, the results aren’t what you were hoping for. There is disappointment and regret with the way you have handled the situation. But you don’t waste time dwelling on things. Your emotional maturity and your ability to manage and attract wealth allows you to move past this instance and begin again with a different strategy.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
The decisions you make this month are all about discovering and moving in the direction that makes you emotionally happy. Following the logical route isn’t going to work for you anymore. Even if it means going off tangent from where you are currently, you will pursue it if that is what it takes to make you happy and passionate about living life. Your approach to living life to the fullest is everyone’s idea of living the dream but not many dare to take the plunge the way eccentric Aquarius does.
Pisces (Mar 20 – Apr 21)
You will discover that empathy and compassion always wins in any scenario. It might also be the path that you choose to take with your career. Your natural inclination to care for people draws people to you so take time out when you need to. Or direct people to other sources for help or teach them the tools of self-care if you can. You may not be able to be there for everyone and taking care of yourself and your mental health should also be a priority this month.
