After a 30-day heart-reactivation through Leo, the Sol enters the domain of Virgo, where the practical, methodical qualities of Mercury are employed to make the necessary adjustments in our environs in order to expedite our evolutionary journey.
It is important to stay mindful that we are travelling alone now. Never has there been a more critical moment to be certain and proud of our sense of self, for none other than our inner knowing is there to re-mind us that whatever happens, we totally got this.
In the next 30 days we will develop tools, skills that will allow us to manage this ‘aloneness’ The keen qualities of discernment and an adapt-ability to practical matters will become the running theme to where we will focus our attention.
It will be tricky, as Virgo’s ruling planet Mercury is currently in retrograde.
MERCURY RETROGRADE: Aug 12-Sep 5
Mercury entered the Rx zone on 24th July. Lots has been spoken, written, said, posted off since then. Time now to look back at all that, somewhat critically (Virgo) and study its flaws as we try to weigh it all up against the ideal in our minds.
The Virgo mind can display a strict, cold, analytical side, showing little tolerance for disorder. Strong opinions about what’s right and wrong, arching into how others should live their lives, interfering in relationships, whilst cleverly maintaining a safe distance between its own, personal affairs and those of others.
Whilst not employing a particularly warm and compassionate way to assess personal relationships, there is a shrewd capacity to skillfully and impartially (mathematically) arrive at some great solutions. It seems necessary now to review and retrace our steps, to figure out all the practical intricacies that lie between ourselves and the universe. Check out the gaps between how the world actually works and how we could make it work for our own mental ideals.
Mercury will retrograde back to 28°♌25′ on Sep 5, which incidentally happens to be the exact degree of next week’s Solar Eclipse (Aug 21). Observe the critical issues that are instrumental in making sweeping life-changes for you at this time. See how impassioned you become about relating (communicating) what you stand for in this world, who you are in your own right.
NAVIGATING WITH THE SUN IN VIRGO:
If things have to change, then we must take a mature, sensible approach and get busy with the logistics. There must be no further hesitation about replacing that which no longer serves us as wished or intended. Critical aspects include the opposition to Neptune, one day before the Full Moon in Pisces.

Any activities that serve no real purpose must go, and any dependencies/attachments (toxic relationships, drugs, self-defeatism behaviour) to help us escape the harsh realities of life must be placed into a radioactive-proof container and disposed of for good.
A square to Saturn will also prove challenging, when our attachments can feel excessively heavy.

Of course, we are merely talking about the emotional and ideological ‘attachment’ that you have towards our ‘baggage’, not the things themselves. Virgo has a tendency to purge what the mind considers impure, so if you throw the baby out instead of the bathwater there is a risk that you will just mutate and place your toxic ‘attachment’ elsewhere. Learn to discern what indeed you are doing when going into karmic ‘cleanup’ mode.
Identify your baggage. Do something about it now (can’t take it with you).
Areas where you will be called to clean/tidy up your baggage over the next 30 days:
Mundane details, daily practices and its colleagues, lower-ranking co-workers, behaviour at work, minor obligations, servitudes, pets, health, anxiety, medicines and minor illnesses.
Creative and recreational activities, hobbies, love affairs, luck in gambling, relationships with children in general, including you own. All pleasant things in your life.
Family, origins, heredity, ancestors, roots, and home, both the home you come from and the one you will set up, real estate, patrimony, childhood, and emotions.
