Retrograde Reflections and The New Moon in Virgo
Moving out of the inner planet's retrograde and into the second half of September brings us opportunities for self-discovery, personal growth, and reflection. Let's dive into what the stars have in store for us, including the chance to learn some valuable lessons during Mercury and Venus retrograde.
Mercury and Venus Retrograde: Lessons in Relationships and Mindset
Over the past month, the planets Mercury and Venus have appeared to be moving backward or retrograde and can often get a reputation for delay confusion and mayhem, but they can also be an incredible teacher if we choose to listen.
During Mercury's retrograde journey through Virgo, you might have found yourself reflecting on your relationships and mindset. Mercury is the planet of communication and thought, and Virgo's meticulous energy encourages us to pay attention to the finer details. Did you discover any miscommunications or misunderstandings in your relationships? Did you notice patterns in your thought processes that needed a bit of fine-tuning?
Perhaps you've had an "aha" moment about how you communicate or relate to others. Maybe you realized that being overly critical (a classic Virgo trait) was holding you back in your relationships. The beauty of Mercury retrograde is that it invites us to reevaluate, relearn, and refine our communication skills. So, what have you learned about yourself and your connections with others over the past month?
New Moon in Virgo: Setting Intentions for Organization and Service
On Friday the 15th the New Moon in Virgo is a cosmic invitation to plant the seeds of intention. 🌒✨ Virgo is all about order, routines, and service to others. This lunar event provides a perfect backdrop for setting intentions related to your daily rituals, organizational skills, and how you can serve others in your business or personal life.
Take a moment to reflect on the areas of your life that could use a touch of Virgo's practical magic. Is it time to streamline your morning routine? Perhaps you're considering starting a new venture that involves helping others. Use this New Moon energy to set clear and concise intentions. Remember, the New Moon is like a blank canvas waiting for your artistic touch, so paint your dreams with purpose.
Venus Direct in Leo
Venus has now turned direct in Leo. This brings a welcome shift in the realm of love and creativity. If there were any stalled romantic endeavors or creative projects, you can now breathe a sigh of relief as the cosmic love goddess starts moving forward once more.
Jupiter's Retrograde: The Final Push for Unfinished Business
Jupiter, the planet of expansion and growth, recently embarked on its retrograde journey. This cosmic giant is known for its benevolent influence, and during its retrograde phase, it encourages us to focus on finishing unfinished business and expanding our knowledge.
Have you been putting off that course, writing project, or personal goal? Now is the time to revisit those dreams and give them the attention they deserve. Jupiter's retrograde energy will provide you with the motivation and optimism needed to complete those bigger projects.
Outer planet Retrogrades: Chiron, Neptune, Saturn, Pluto, and Uranus.
Lastly, let's not forget the longer retrograde periods of Chiron, Neptune, Saturn, Pluto, and Uranus. These celestial heavyweights are currently retracing their steps but will gradually turn direct from October onwards. These extended retrogrades encourage deep introspection and transformation. Consider them as cosmic checkpoints for your personal growth journey.
