Virgo (August 22nd to September 21st)
At the top of the week, Venus heads into Capricorn where she’s gonna be hanging out until February. This is a great time to make creative changes to your wardrobe, for example. Also, as a child of Mercury, I think that his going direct, as he does at the end of the week, would be cause for rejoicing. But you might want to hold off on that immediately. It’s not because the retrofuggery won’t be over, mostly. It’s be-cause another retrograde comes into swing on Thursday with Jupiter. Jupiter’s retro may slow the pace or altogether alter projects you’ve kicked off with others in the last five months. Perhaps you remember I talked a lot this summer about the group or collective work you might have been doing then. Now is a time to revisit those efforts and bolster up some aspects of it that have come undone or are fraying.
