I almost started this post with "Hello Team, are you ready to get going?". I guess I felt like I wanted to write some inspirational insight to get us excited to transit from Leo to Virgo. When we transition from a Fire sign to an Earth it can always feel like our candle gets snuffed. If you have earth placements Virgo season is a welcome reprieve from chaos and an introduction into stability.
I wanted to highlight a few big changes around the change of the Zodiac Season
Firstly, Mars Moves into Gemini on August 20th, a few days before the Sun transits into Virgo.
With Mars in an Air Sign our mental energy is boosted and we could be left hungry for things to learn, organize and fix. Be mindful about over thinking and fixing things that are better left alone or are out of your control. Mars in Gemini + Sun in Virgo combo is a combination that could induce anxiety if you are not tuning into the energy to better your spirit. (Ultimately make sure you are not hyper focused on external circumstances).
Second, Uranus begins its Retrograde August 24th. Uranus has been in Taurus since 2018 and this is not its favorite place to be. Taurus' energy is resistant to Uranus' energy changing charms so we have to work extra hard to bring forward change. This retrograde cycle allows us to turn inward and ask ourselves a few questions:
1) What change have I wanted to see over the past year?
2) How have I worked toward that change?
3) How have I gotten in my own way to successfully shift the energy?
Until January 2023 we have this time to plot our next moves and consider how we can create steady, sustainable change in the areas we want to in our lives.
Lastly, Mercury moves into Libra (where it will soon enter retrograde itself.) The combination of Earth and Air sign movement over the 5 day period where the Sun transits from Leo to Virgo is.... interesting. Mercury rules how we communicate and process information which means its placement can influence us in more obvious ways. Check in with where Libra falls in your chart, note any planets and understand what house (life area) is being influenced here. This is where you should focus the most attention on mindfulness and patience.
