Writing this in the middle of an almost 24-hour Moon void in Leo that began Wednesday at 5:10PM ET. It won’t engage fully in the next sign — Virgo — until 3:50PM ET today. Sleep through the alarm? Put your underwear on backwards? Greeted by a Starbucks barrista with a cheerful “Good afternoon!” at 8:30 in the morning? Roll through the twists and flakes; stick to routine; avoid the malls and chill, chill, chill.
At 1:30PM ET Venus — which refers to social expression, arts, women and money — leaves luxurious, regal, drama queen Leo for the pristine, detail-oriented, potentially hypercritical sign of Virgo. This is significant because Venus stationed retrograde at 0 degrees of Virgo on July 25th. By Saturday, Venus will finally be out of the shadow phase of its retrogradation, suggesting our aesthetic senses have finally returned to normal. Did your summer fling survive the summer? How attractive are they now?
A drive for perfection in social expression may be felt as Venus and the Moon meet up at 4:01PM ET. An ambitious advance or a wet blanket may land on your plate around 7:18PM ET, as the Moon is challenged by controlling Saturn. You could use the late afternoon’s Virgo need for order, combined with the last full day of Mercury retrograde to tackle that REorganization project you vowed to complete.
The drive to put things right continues through the weekend. I have a closet filled with summer clothes that need to be swapped out for fall. What have you got planned for the rest of the year, with most of the planets moving forward again? Would you like to talk about it? An astro-logical perspective can be oh-so validating and inspiring…or clarifying if you haven’t got a clue. Here’s how to contact me for a personal consultation.
Look up in the sky tonight and you may see a few of the Draconids meteors — here’s the 411.
