MERCURY IN VIRGO: EXTENDED TRANSIT AUGUST 20-OCT 26TH
Virgo is one of the more fascinating signs representing the World mother. Virgo ascendants sometimes feel cut out of material prosperity and sensual pleasures and feel unhappy taking on the sins of the world embodying the German word, Weltschmerz. The sign is endowed with great intelligence, Shakti, physicality, Universal life along with the gift of poetry, speech, music, and great psychic, intuitive powers. And yet despite all these gifts, there is often great dissatisfaction with life.
Whenever a planet appears in Virgo in any sign of the zodiac it means where we need to be better, improve or be pure. Being the natural sixth house of the zodiac, it means that we need discipline around regular work, health, and diet to prevent illness and we also need to develop skills to work with people so that we do not develop enmity with co-workers at work. The challenge is Saturn and wanting too much perfection in the world and being too hard on oneself and one’s weaknesses.
There can be too much self-deprecation and continual beating oneself up on the dark side or a continual focus on always wanting to do it better, which can also become a good quality. Keywords to remember are purity and improvement.
Mercury transits into Virgo, its sign of exaltation August 20th, and stays there until Oct. 26th but because it retrogrades Sept 9-Oct 2nd, it spends an unusual 61 days in the sign. This enhances Mercury’s powers as described above and is a great time for deep thought and creative expression in music and writing and is a great time for a clear intellect and coherent thinking. Geminis and Virgo rising particularly do well with the transit for health and career. It is a fourth house transit for Geminis bringing up richness in family life and a chance for real estate development and remodeling projects. It is a 12th house transit for Libras and a 7th house transit for Pisces and they may have more problems with it than others with expenditures or relationships for Pisces rising.
Mercury exalted in its sign of exaltation makes it more intuitive and the retrograde is only about 3 weeks and ends on Oct. 2nd. Mercury will also cancel out the Venus debilitation Sept. 24-Oct 18th and that is always welcome. The most affliction it gets is from Jupiter in Pisces and that often accentuates keenest of intellect and expressions in speech and writing and for Virgos and Pisces it may create tensions in relationship between the more idealized spiritual nature of one partner and the practical, business nature of the other partner.
Good month in general for writing, computer programming, and communications so start that book or get it published.
