Mercury Retrograde & Virgo Season 🌾
Mercury Retrograde as We Enter Virgo Season
Hello Lovely Readers I am in the process of moving this week & next so I will be truncating my weeklies, but I still want to orient you.
So: Venus has reappeared as the Morning Star ️ and is on track to complete this retrograde journey on September 3. We are beginning the integration phase. As money & love and the main threads, what has come to pass in these parts of your life since July 22? On Wednesday, Mercury stations retrograde at 21° Virgo, within reach of an opposition to Neptune & trines to Pluto & Uranus. This tells us that this is yet another big retrograde that will overlap some with Venus. This is big cleaning energy. Clean your house, clean your car, clean your body, clean your room, clean your moods, clean your vibe, clean your mind. All the usual cautions for this Mercury retrograde… give yourself some spaciousness around any big decisions or contractual commitments, and use the time to regroup and deep dive around your health and how you care for it in a daily way. As always this will be a 3.5 week transit, regaining normal direction on September 15, and normal planetary speed by equinox. Wednesday also includes the Sun’s entrance into Virgo season, the time of the Great Grain Goddess and herbalist and healer. What in your life needs careful attention and quality control? Use the next month to tend these places, as we prepare for winter in the north, and summer in the south.
Don’t Hesitate If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy, don’t hesitate. Give in to it. There are plenty of lives and whole towns destroyed or about to be. We are not wise, and not very often kind. And much can never be redeemed. Still, life has some possibility left. Perhaps this is its way of fighting back, that sometimes something happens better than all the riches or power in the world. It could be anything, but very likely you notice it in the instant when love begins. Anyway, that’s often the case. Anyway, whatever it is, don’t be afraid of its plenty. Joy is not made to be a crumb. -Virgo Mary Oliver
