Virgo 23 Aug - 22 Sep
The North Node of the Moon, one of
the astrological points most associated
with one’s destiny, enters Cancer this
month where it will remain, more or less for
the next 18 months. Since Cancer is the area
of your solar chart associated with your friends,
associates and group activities, this is a good time to
expand your social circle, to renew old acquaintances and to
team up with new kindred spirits who share your dreams and aspirations. Things are complicated a little since Mercury, your planetary ruler, will be retrograde in Sagittarius from around 17 November - 07 December. Therefore, perhaps this is the time to take a wait-and-see approach to anything or anyone that looks too-good-to-be-true, time to slow down, not speed up, to resist the temptation to cut corners in your desire to get who and what you want and to read the small print before committing your time, energy or affections.
With Venus retrograde in Libra, one of the money zones of your solar chart, until 16 November, the same time Mercury turns retrograde, complications over finances is also more likely now so you need to be mindful when it comes to expenses since reluctance to wait, to shop around or read the small print could prove expensive. If in doubt, wait and count to 10 before opening your purse, check-book or mouth and if possible, give your credit card a well-earned holiday. Positively, this would be a good time to sort out your finances, to cut back on those no longer necessary expenses, subscriptions and other drains on your finances.
The current planetary emphasis on Scorpio is highlighting the importance of getting out and about more, especially if you’ve a message you’d like to get across. Short-trips are well-starred and you’re likely to benefit from exploring your own back yard. You might bump into someone important in your doorstep or while on a short trip.
