This is a huge finale. Pluto has been retrograde since 29 April so this turning point is pretty hefty. It’s also Mercury’s last aspect in the end degrees of Virgo, and one that he’s already made twice, before changing sign again next week. Decisions made under such conditions are likely to be irrevocable, but that’s not always a bad thing. This can be about adaptability as well as slamming doors shut behind you.
On 8 September transiting Saturn was at 20 Aquarius, coming back over the Queen’s Mars – Jupiter conjunction for the second time. So often it’s the middle of any three-legged transit that is the crucial one, especially when it’s underlined by a progression and a lunation/the progressed Moon). Traditional astrology teaches that the coming together of these three factors indicates the major and fated milestones in our individual journeys.
Enlightenment wakes us up, setting us on the path to constructive change and far less risk of making the same mistakes twice – or more! Definitely time to take a long hard look at anything problematic in your life or relationships that seems to be stuck on repeat. Virgo loves a bit of analysis!
Mercury on the Move, Venus – Jupiter blessings and Mars’ New Journey (Horoscopes: Salman Rushdie, Anne Heche)
Jupiter is Venus’ first date on her new journey through Leo. The only thing to bear in mind is that Jupiter is currently retrograde so look out for the “re” factor – reworking, replanning, rethinking etc. This can show as changes of plan or going back to plan A or even an ex. This is classic astrology for second chances that are worth exploring.
Start focusing on what you really want to do, start putting irons in the fire. Mars’ change of sign is going to be increasingly important as he’s heading for a retrograde cycle which translates into then spending 7 months in Gemini instead of two. Choices, choices ….
