Mercury, the planet of thought and communication , entered the sign of Virgo today. Virgo is the sign of discernment. The symbol for Virgo is a Virgin holding a sheaf of wheat. This symbolizes the gathering in of material needs at harvest time. Virgo rules the assimilative systems of the body. It is the sign of purity and perfection. With this sign, which is associated with a high strung nervous system, the mind strongly affects the body and so often there is an interest in health and perfecting the state of health.
This sign is also associated with service to others in order to help create a better world.
This provides a good time to think about being of service to others. It’s also a good time to consider making improvements to your health – whether through diet, exercise etc. Mercury will travel in Virgo through the end of the month and then retrograde back into the late degrees in September.
Venus is now at 21 degrees of Cancer aligning favorably with Neptune. This aspect bodes well for spiritual growth and artistic projects. Michelangelo had this aspect in his chart. It is associated with love of a divine nature as well as love affairs of a knightly kind or love affairs with a Muse which enable the artist to access higher planes of inspiration.
Venus will also be opposing Pluto. This can bring up feelings of loss having to do with love or the lack of love. It can also bring up fears of scarcity about financial matters. But Pluto in his most powerful form is about transformation. So in dealing with issues like this it bodes well to go to a deeper understanding of the situation to bring significant change in the outcome.
Venus will enter the sign of Leo on the 11th.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A nature spirit dancing in the mist of a waterfall.”
