Virgo Season is officially underway. Mercury, ruler of Virgo, left Leo for his home territory of Virgo this morning at 3:48 AM EDT.
The waning balsamic Moon is void-of-course all day as she moves un-aspected through the last degrees of Leo. This evening at 7:57 PM EDT she joins the work-party in Virgo, then meets up with Mercury soon after.
Your brain may overflow with plans and details this evening. Write it all down before bed so you can rest up for a busy day tomorrow.
The Virgo Sun is moving into a supportive trine aspect with Uranus in Taurus, exact near midnight tonight. A trine means two planets are 120˚ apart from one another and is considered positive. In this case, the Sun is separating from Uranus, meaning Sol has traveled 120˚ of arc from his last meet-up with Uranus in late April.
Change-maker Uranus is in an uncomfortable state now and for the next few years as he moves through change-averse Taurus. Uranus wants to shake things up, and Taurus wants everything to stay the same. Think of tectonic plates. The movement is glacial, resistance is high, and the stress becomes intense before an earthquake suddenly releases the pressure.
You may have experienced some profound life-quakes (expected or not) since Spring, especially if you have planets or angles in the fixed signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius. Today’s trine aspect can help you adjust to the changes and start settling into this new identity with a dawning sense of security.
