Reminder * It’s Mercury Retrograde ‘Til 9/5/17

It started in Earth sign Virgo on 8/12/17 and reverses into Fiery Leo where it will go Direct on 9/5/17. The possibility of communication snafus are increased because Mercury is in one of the signs it rules, Virgo (the other is Gemini). When the planet transits the detail focused 6th sign of the Zodiac, its concerns are amped – analyze, write, speak, teach, work, diet, service. With the added mischief of “Retrograde”, misunderstandings, slips of the tongue or pen, (Freudian or otherwise), can occur.

However, chaos is not inevitable. We can mitigate potential missed and mixed messages by jumping all over the details. Little things can impact larger things big time. Back up, fine tune your gadgets, computers and phones. Project initiation / creation would be best delayed if possible – if not, be meticulous, pay attention.

Remember my usual suggestions for Mercury Retrograde – see it as an opportunity to review, reconsider, re-think, revise. However, note that as we do this, we are not going backwards into the past, we are pro actively making any needed changes, re evaluations for the future – a good thing.

*Mercury Retrograde: 8/12/17 – 9:01 PM EDT / 6:01 PM PDT

FYI: Mercury just “appears” to go backwards. Planets only move forward, however, due to the earth’s changing speed as it orbits around the Sun, the positions are such that it looks like a reverse motion from earth.

 

Weekend Highlight – Virgo Full Moon!

The Virgo Full Moon energy on Sunday March 12, 2017 inclines us to take care of ourselves and our work. Ruled by clever Mercury, this responsible, hard working 6th sign of the Zodiac is about health, service, self-improvement, handling the details and getting things done. Just be careful not to do too many things at once. Juggling might be exciting and a personal test of skills, but don’t go overboard. Think “pace”.

A Full Moon phase is a great time to move towards finalizing whatever project or diet regimen you may have been planning. The universe will support you in being healthy and contributing. Its influences will last for several days even when the Astrology sign changes to Libra.

*Virgo Full Moon: March 12, 2017 – 10:54 AM EDT /7:54 AM PDT 

(the Moon, Virgo is opposite and reflecting the Sun, Pisces = “Full Moon”.)

HEADS UP – Daylight Savings Time begins at 2AM 3/12 – Set clocks one hour ahead (Spring Forward!)

 

 

 

New Moon In Conscientious Virgo 9/1/16

Astro New Moon CrescentThere will be a New Moon, and Solar Eclipse, in Earth sign Virgo on Thursday, 9/1/16. The energies of this solid 6th sign of the Zodiac will be intensified. Since it is ruled by communication planet Mercury, analytical Virgo’s written and verbal interaction is revved up. Don’t spend too much time being critical of others or yourself. Being constructive will be better appreciated.

Like all “New” Lunar phases, the next 2 weeks are a great time for initiating, creating = new beginnings. Use it to organize and de-clutter both mind and surroundings. Take care of needed changes now, start fresh.

*Virgo New Moon:  9/1/16  5:03 AM EDT / 2:03AM PDT

 

 

Mercury Retrograde (Ooops?) in Detail Loving Virgo, 8/30/16

Astrology Mercury Retrograde 2

*Alert!  Communication planet Mercury, which rules both Air Gemini and Earth Virgo, will go reverse on Tuesday August 30, 2016. It went backwards in the other Earth signs earlier this year, (Taurus in April and Capricorn in January). What does that mean to us? General Earth sign attributes, stability, responsibility, practicality may be impacted, especially interactions with others – writing, speaking, teaching, etc. Stay grounded and pay attention to contracts negotiations, deadlines, missed and mixed messages. Gadgets, computers, phones may become uncooperative but “fixes” could be unreliable too. If it can wait, repair, replace after Mercury goes Direct, 9/21 PDT & 9/22 EDT still in Virgo.

Of course, we still gotta show up, life will go on, there are chores and plans that must be dealt with regardless of what Mercury is doing. Retrograde chaos is not inevitable. We can mitigate potential misunderstandings by “sweating to the small stuff”, checking things twice, details, details, details. My usual suggestions for Mercury Retrograde: see it as an opportunity to review, reconsider, re-think, revisit. As we do this, we’re not going backwards into the past, we are pro actively making any needed changes, re evaluations for the future – a good thing.

FYI: Mercury just “appears” to go backwards. Planets only move forward, however, due to the earth’s changing speed as it orbits around the Sun, the positions are such that it looks like a reverse motion from earth.

Weekend Highlight – Virgo Full Moon!

The Moon will be in the health and service oriented Earth sign Virgo beginning Friday morning which will be great for getting things done – but wait, there’s more. It’s that time again! On Sunday March 16, 2014, the Moon (Virgo) is opposite and reflecting the Sun (Pisces) = “Full Moon”. This Lunar phase wants us to complete projects, crystallize ideas, finalize whatever vitamin or diet regimen you may have been planning.  Astro Moon Full

The hard working 6th sign of the Zodiac is about handling the details. Just be careful not to do too many things at once. Juggling might be exciting and a personal test of skills, but don’t go overboard. Think “pace”. The universe will support you in being productive, useful, healthy and whole.

Full Moon influences will last for several days even when the sign changes.

*Virgo Full Moon: March 16 – 1:08PM EDT / 10:08AM PDT

Have a super weekend!

 

Full Moon in Leo, Then Virgo Moon Weekend!

Champagne, chocolates, feathers, sequins, dramatic declarations all work well, regardless of partner, with the attention seeking 5th sign of the Zodiac. For Valentine’s Day, Friday February 14, 2014 the Moon will be on “Full” power in generous, ”let’s have fun” Fire sign Leo. Enjoy it all, but also note that a “Full” phase is good for wrapping things up, finishing what began at the time of the last New Moon. The effects will last for a few days even as the Lunar orb moves on to the next sign, Virgo.  Astro Moon Full

The Moon will be in service oriented, practical Earth sign Virgo Saturday and Sunday. From upbeat Leo to conscientious and ready to tackle the details Virgo – it’s all good. Take advantage of the Full phase’s continued vibe by using this Mercury ruled sign’s cleverness and penchant for detail. You can get things done.

(Just in case I haven’t been clear in my weekend update Astrology posts,  my premise is that as the Moon changes signs, so does our moods, our energy and often how we act/react in the day to day.)

Full Moon 2/14/14:  6:53 PM EST / 3:53PM PST

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Theatrical Leo & Practical Virgo – Be Flexible!

This weekend, the Moon will shift us thru a variety of moods. It’s all good, we can handle it.

Astro moon-waning-crescent-lThe Lunar orb is in generous, dramatic (great for actors), attention seeking, creative Leo on Friday and Saturday, December 20 and 21. Ruled by the Sun, this fun loving Fire sign may add some drama, but we will be active, upbeat, and magnanimous, which can make for a really good time.

On Sunday, the energy changes when the Moon moves into Earthy, service oriented Virgo. Its traits of practicality and responsibility will give focus to doing what is needed. Take care of loose ends, pay attention to the details, handle business – accomplishment is exciting and makes you feel proud:)

Whatever you do, make it a weekend to remember!

 

Accomplishment Central – New Moon in Virgo!

Astro New Moon CrescentOn Thursday September 5, 2013, both the New Moon and the Sun are in efficient Earthy Virgo. We experience a double dose of the responsible, practical, detail oriented 6th sign of the Zodiac.  Like all “New” Lunar phases, the next 2 weeks are a great time for initiating, starting, creating, etc. Use it to organize and de-clutter both mind and surroundings.

Take advantage of Virgo’s natural “I’ll handle it” approach to take a look at health and nutrition. Are there things to be improved – diet, exercise? Don’t spend too much time being critical of yourself. Take care of needed changes now.
