Virgo 23 Aug - 22 Sep
You’d think after the year you’ve had
you’d finally get a chance to put your feet
up but that looks unlikely. As with Gemini,
the other Mercury governed Sun sign, Mercury,
your planetary ruler and the planet associated
with communication in all its many forms, will turn
retrograde from 19 December - 08 January. This is
not the time to act on incomplete or unreliable information
or to try to read between the lines, to be economical with the
truth or speak with a forked tongue. Misunderstandings and
crossed wires are more likely when Mercury is retrograde so
resist the temptation to cut corners in your desire to get ahead.
Step back, slow down, hold your horses and simplify matters and make sure you’re ready when opportunity knocks.
Mercury turns retrograde in Capricorn just before meeting Pluto which suggest you may have a change of heart or be given give cause to pause on an important creative or emotional matter. If so, perhaps it would be prudent to bide your time until after Mercury moves forward again on 08 January before making major decisions of commitments. Not that you should be unduly alarmed. In fact, fortune favours you now, you’ve a good hand, you’ve just got to play your cards right.
With Neptune and the South Node of the Moon in your opposite sign of Pisces, you should know by now that you can’t believe everything you hear or read, good or bad. And although there are a number of people who appear to have fallen off their horse and you’ve kindly helped them to get back in the saddled. However, if you find they haven’t ridden off into the sunset as you have hoped but keep falling off their horse, perhaps you may have to call it quits and move on to pastures new. You’re so used to being the power behind the thrown you’re not so accustomed to being the main event. Even so, it’s time to be captain of you’re own ship, master, or m’stress, of your fate.
With me-first, impatient and impulsive Mars in Pisces from the 19 December, not everyone will be pleased with your insistent on calling the shots and doing your thing. With the Sun and serious Saturn in Sagittarius, the domestic zone of your solar chart, until the Sun enters Capricorn on 21 December, be prepared to focus, and prioritise, home and family matters this month. Nevertheless, with the full Moon on 14 December falling in Gemini, the area of your solar chart concert with your work, status and dealings with those in positions of authority and power, make sure to make time to exploit opportunities in this area of your life mid-month.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all at johnhayes.biz.
