Mercury forms a quincunx to Saturn and a trine to Jupiter this morning. With Jupiter and Saturn semi-sextile, when we get a win, there seems to be a cost, but our hardships seem much more manageable! This combination can produce the energy of “two steps forward, one step back.” The Moon enters steady, deliberate Taurus very early in the day–at 12:37am EDT.
Venus enters the sign of Virgo today, just days after Mars moved into the sign, and two days before the Sun will follow suit. Venus transits Virgo until September 14th, and we may be paying special attention to details. We may thoroughly enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done during this cycle. This is a time when we express our love through practical means and gestures–running errands, doing detail work, or just being there for our loved ones. We should watch for a tendency to worry or fret.
