There is a lot shifting this month. Jupiter is leaving the fiery position of Leo and it is going into Virgo. While Jupiter does not necessarily like the constrictive quality of Virgo it is still going to be great for the Virgos. For the rest of us we are going to have to pay attention to the details and get organized. After all Virgo is about work and service and it will require us to be meticulous and pay attention to the patterns that need to be addressed in order for the expansion that we seek.
Mercury is also in Virgo and so you begin to want to make some real shifts in the way of health and well-being. Each of you will be going on your own spiritual quest in some way and that is given an added boost because Saturn leaves Scorpio on Sept 18th and goes solidly into Sagittarius till December of 2017 propelling us into wanting to learn and grow in the way that is calling to your personal path and spirit. For some of you it will make you want to go back to school for others of you it might show up as learning some new diet and exercise techniques. Regardless, there is work to be done in your external world and adjustments will need to be made and new structures will be required in your life for you to be able to navigate it all.
Venus is retrograde and in a square with Saturn for the duration of the month and this can give a rise to tensions in romantic relationships, work associations, or friendships. So remember to pay attention to your inner peace meter as you are going to need to stay on top of your projections and reactions.
After all we are in the hottest time of the year and it can make people feels stressed and stretched. There is a Venus conjunction with Jupiter until August 11th and this make you feel a bit excessive as it may amplify everything including unfortunate influences. Jupiter will also be opposing Neptune for the next year and this can create a negative effect on things related to justice, religion, and education.
It will feel as if pretty much nothing is working the way you intended. This month is likely to be very frustrating and has the potential to create huge stress. You will be challenged to find a positive slant to move through it all.
My suggestion is to not listen to the news and focus on your small world and keep that pattern in a good flow and symmetry. The rest of the world is just going to have to wait for a moment.
You are feeling overloaded and the tendency to get pretty grumpy is very high. Keep your focus on your heart and what opens love. Let the rest go, as you cannot change it right now anyway.
As Jupiter forms that square with Saturn it forms another tense aspect with Pluto. It’s important to avoid taking on too much or putting too much of ourselves into your projects and endeavors.
Exaggerating your importance or power, either to is not the best use of your energy. Retrograde Venus aligns with Jupiter on the 4th, and although this is typically a very helpful and beneficent aspect, Venus is also now very much involved in the difficult Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto aspect, pulling up underlying tensions in social interactions and relationships.
Jealousies, envies, hidden agendas, and suspicion are all possible now. You have a tendency to want more than the world can provide in this moment. There may be reactivation of old relationship issues, grievances, or financial/legal problems. Avoid new financial undertakings today, as they may prove to be “money pits” as time passes.
So much is happening this month that you need to choose to find a way to let yourself breathe and get some inner space and air in your life.
It is best to not get so stressed by this astrology that you allow yourself to jump from one relationship to another, as your head is not clear in this Venus Retrograde. You head does not clear until Venus moves on September 6th.
The question I would ask myself is if you are trying to get your needs met or are you feeling into the heart of the ones you love and are using your energy to open love for others?
This whole month Saturn is squaring Jupiter forcing all of us to restructure your lives, plans, and relationships. And that learning curve is just beginning so remember this month is baby steps as you move towards the new goals that are in the forming stage.
As you can see with the cards there is cause for celebration and breakthrough on many levels so use this energy to flow in the direction that will serve you in the long run. Don’t freeze in fear like the Rabbit but construct a steady pathway up that hill that you know you need to climb and if you pace yourself you will get to your goal eventually. Nothing is going to move fast but you can plan it out and accept the process and it will not be hard. I know we live in a world where we want everything right now but for the next few years those that make the most progress are being the most calculated and consistent. Living in the possibility is no longer enough. It is time to get down to work and make the necessary sacrifices so you can have the comfort and financial ease that you desire.
You may notice where you have conflict with your money, wealth, and long-term happiness. It is amazing where we confront resistance in our life and how that shows up as avoidance to doing what it is that we need to do. This month is all about taking the responsibility and going forward in a clear and calculated way to manifest what you want in the long term.
Yes, you will have to sacrifice some things in the short term to get what you deserve and desire in the long term but it will be worth it.
This is also that moment when it might be a good idea to sit down and have a chat with your mate about your choices, needs, desires, and long term goals. Based on the astrology everyone is feeling like they might need a bit of attention so calculate that personal and yummy time also into your calculations. After all Virgo is a passionate sign and it is amazing how a little bit of attention to your intimate connection is all you need sometimes to juice you back up and put your focus back in the game.
