A distinct Virgo flavor comes through with Venus’ ingress in the sign of discernment and discrimination until August 29th. Venus joins Mercury there and both with conjunct the North Node and Jupiter in Virgo. Mercury will have another retrograde in this earth sign August 30th through Sept. 21. We are reminded that the whole is always greater than the sum of the parts, however, attention to the specifics will tend to yield the best results.
Venus and Mars last-quarter square one another emphasizing the discovery of what is important in our relationships. Let downs and disappointments during this time may mean “move on” so be keen to address what is really important in your relationships.
Welcome also to eclipse season with two lunar eclipses and a solar sandwiched in from mid-August until mid-September. Jupiter in late Virgo is busy with third and final aspects to Chiron and Uranus before ingressing Libra Sept. 9th.
Finally, Saturn will be stationary direct later in the month(August 13) at 10* Sag. We have all had varying amounts of involution with all the outer planets retrograde, but Saturn direct flashes a green light for responsible actions on our journey to the core of the Soul.
