Venus leaves sassy Leo for proper Virgo this afternoon, likely adding a note of skepticism to our interactions with others. In the forming sextile to Mercury, we find the intention to dig deeper and root out the truth, rather than gloss over any discrepancies or inconsistencies. However, our confidence may be undercut somewhat and insecurities will be shown through excessive criticism. As Mercury begins to slow down, to turn retrograde on the October 14th, we will become even more interested in solving long-standing problems and truly getting to the heart of the matter. Today sets another marker (combining with the one that was set on September 23), helping us to identify the areas that will need our attention the most under the coming retrograde Mercury.
The energy requires you to stay on your toes, and it could pull you in different directions. Those who seize the day will totally benefit in the end!
There is so much happening at once with today’s transits. A strong pull between earth and fire really has its hand in both moving things forward practically and jumping into things courageously. There is a strong sense of bravery that is needed today even as Venus enters the sign of practical Virgo in the late afternoon. Your creativity does need some kind of organization, but the passion is still burning in your soul, especially as the waning gibbous moon fires through impulsive Aries coming off yesterday’s poignant full moon.
With a square between retrograde Mars in Aries and Saturn in domineering Capricorn, there’s a dynamic pull between structure and ambition as a continuing presence. This is where the conflict arises and where you really need to hold it down. Remember that everyone thinks they are right at this time. There is a conviction in the collective that can go either way.
Pay close attention to what news you receive over the next few days, and don’t give up on your dream. With plenty of raw and real conversations going on, you might just come to a conclusion that you’ve needed to understand for many years. Never compromise yourself for the needs of others because Saturn and Mars create a specific friction needed for total internal change. This can even cause your internal compass to completely change direction.
Jupiter in Capricorn is in a loving sextile to Neptune in inspiring Pisces, keeping the dream alive and helping to prolong a sense of optimism throughout this process.
