Virgo (August 22nd to September 21st)
Your patron, Mercury, sashays out of your sign’s bosom and into Libra at the top of week. Then he seems to go on steroids for the next two weeks. Although you’re feeling anxious still at the top of this week, it looks like you get over it quickly enough. Here’s the interesting thing to consider about Mercury in Libra though. First, be aware that Mercury’s shift might affect your sleeping patterns some, making you more of a night owl, especially if you’re not already. Mercury thrives in Libra at night. Toward the end of the week, you’re going to have to be protective of your thoughts, as Merc gets a bit obsessive and determined. That’s not a bad thing if you’re problem solving, cleaning or talking through some deep stuff. But you don’t want to carry too much of that with you to bed.
