Virgo (August 22nd to September 21st)

This new moon in Sagittarius on Monday is a “mic check” for you. It really doesn’t matter whether you really speak on a mic for a living or not, but it’s time to monitor what you say, how you say it and why you’re saying it. It’s all kinds of “back to ba-sics camp” for you, and it may not all feel good. In fact, your weekend could be a lit-tle stressful as you cope with that. But you also have to realize that it’s all of your own making. Mercury, your patron planet, gets in a staticky long distance call with Neptune on Friday, and that could run in tandem with misunderstandings, confu-sion, and hurt feelings. However, it also presents an opportunity to look at how you’re on message with your feelings. The next month or so may find you planning and doing important things, but you have to be on point first.
