This week??s energies support holistic healing for the mind, body, and spirit. If your modus operandi already includes a badass exercise, diet, and meditation routine, get ready to make massive breakthroughs in your practices. And if you could benefit from a little push in the right direction, the planetary activity this week will provide some much needed inspiration.
Great news arrives on Tuesday, September 5, when Mercury finally stations direct. That??s right, cosmic warriors, Mercury is completing its retrograde cycle! Mercury went reverse on August 12, which negatively impacted travel, technology, and communication. All retrogrades look backwards, so it??s very likely you encountered some blasts from the pasts during these past few weeks. Now that Mercury is about face, we can more clearly see whether these ghosts were friendly…or if they just dropped by to stir the pot.
You??ll feel a lot less driven by ego over the next few weeks, as Mars ?‘± the planet that rules motivation and determination ?‘± moves out of theatrical Leo into pragmatic Virgo. Mars in Virgo encourages to-do lists, structured schedules, and analytical thinking. On a bad day, however, this placement can cause serious neuroses. The best way to combat Virgo??s nit-picky energy is to slow down. Very few decisions are truly life or death, so take your time making important choices. Resist the urge to rush, and allow Virgo??s earthy spirit to manifest productivity.
We welcome a full moon in Pisces on Wednesday, September 6. Full moons occur when the sun and the moon form a complete opposition, placing the earth directly between these two celestial bodies. We have full visibility when the moon is completely illuminated, as it shines light on all areas of life. Pisces, on the other hand, represents the unfathomable expanse of the sea: the misty, dreamy essence of illusion and clairvoyance. When this otherworldly energy is projected through the lunar spotlight, we can expect to feel extremely emotionally charged. Pisces is the most psychic astrological sign, so during this full moon, trust your intuition and feel allthe feelings: They??re telling you something important!
Mercury enters Virgo on Saturday, September 9, dramatically improving our communication. Virgo is ruled by the messenger planet and is most content giving and receiving practical, logical information. Mercury in Virgo will help make even the most difficult conversations more manageable, so this is an excellent time to initiate dialogues with business partners or bosses.
The moon moves into Taurus on Saturday afternoon, creating a beautiful harmony with the earthy tones of the sun, Mercury, Mars, and Pluto. After an extremely fiery August riddled with change, this weekend offers much needed stability and groundedness. As the sunlight softens and we prepare for autumn??s harvest, we can reflect, find gratitude, and enjoy the last moments of summer.
Body and soul merge this week, Aries darling. The full moon highlights your 6th and 12th houses, which are associated with physical care and psychic powers, respectively. Aries are natural warriors, so it??s not uncommon for Aries to use exercise as a way of releasing fiery energy. It??s important to remember, however, that our emotional worlds also require attention. During the full moon on Wednesday, take time to explore the balance between your external and internal experiences. Don??t be afraid to journey into the dark crevices of your thoughts and feelings, and use that courageous Aries sensibility to deep dive into parts unknown. You are among the bravest of the zodiac, so don??t be afraid to test your inner strength!
