Mercury moves into Virgo, the sign it rules, on September 9th. Focus sharpens and details are everything as reality backs up thoughts and words. Mercury will receive a powerful boost from Pluto retrograde in Capricorn and there is huge potential to manifest what you put out there. The catch is that old habits can manifest as well so make an extra effort to keep pushing forward.
Mercury moves into your sector of work and health, boosting your ability to focus, organize and cut through the non-essentials. You can be ultra-effective now as you get support from those in authority. You'll get noticed at work but save the showy presentations for another time. This week your practical ideas, hard work and willingness to tow the line will grab management's attention.
Mercury urges you to voice your creative ideas and desired goals. It doesn't matter how you do it but get your big idea out there if you want it to manifest. Your understanding of future possibilities has been transforming and now is the time to express them. Open yourself up to new possibilities then create a step by step plan of action to make them real.
Mercury (your ruler) opens up discussions with family or roommates regarding relocations, home finances or contracts. Issues regarding mortgages, loans, debts or a partners finances may factor in but the process should go smoothly. Satisfactory decisions can be reached and financial advantages can occur if you proceed cautiously and pay attention to the details.
Mercury helps you say it perfectly as it enters your communication sector. Discussions with a partner are favoured as you calmly reach an agreement, sign a document or decide what your next move will be. The energy is practical and stable rather than deeply emotional but remember that you are building something that will last. You want a solid foundation before you start to climb higher.
You know exactly what you want and Mercury lets you express it. Your ideas for financial and emotional security can now become reality if you dig in and do the work. Your steadily transforming health and/or work routines are making you stronger and more focused, even as you revisit previous goals. Let these changes drive your awareness of what you need and then let others know what you're worth. Ask for the raise, lay down your boundaries, verbalize your goals.
Mercury comes home to your sign and things really start to hum. Delayed plans move ahead, ideas crystallize and focus returns. You can make amazing progress now and it will be supported by the growing strength of your self image/confidence or desired goals. A threshold is crossed and you can almost hear the audible "click" as what you've been hoping for over the summer starts to fall into place. The only things that can hold you back now are old doubts or destructive habits. Forgive yourself if you slip up then keep pushing forward.
Mercury moves into your sector of secrets, urging you to keep things under wraps for now. Developments regarding childhood, your past or unexpressed/unacknowledged anxieties are all being stirred up. Let them simmer and allow yourself the space/quiet time to explore them. Your foundations are being transformed but right now you need to take a step back and deal with what's hidden before you can move forward.
Mercury enters your sector of friends and groups, introducing critical discussions and decisions. The way you deal with issues is being transformed and now you're ready to share your views with others. It may be tempting to fall back into old thought patterns as you talk to certain people but know that group dynamics will manifest according to what you put into them. Your relationships can move forward if you allow them to.
Mercury urges you to step up and take control of your career. The transformation of your financial status and security base is forcing you to evolve and the way forward is through new job opportunities. If you ask for more you'll get it but you must be aware of what is most effective for you right now. A temporary backslide or drain on your finances can be remedied with quick thinking and practical solutions.
Mercury introduces new opportunities via messages or discussions. Pay close attention to anyone new entering your life as they will help you with recent transformations of lifestyle/attitude/status. Your first impulse may be to reject what's untested but know that this is something the old you would have done. You're past all that now and ready to meet your future.
Mercury stirs up deep anxieties and doubts involving sharing, security and financial issues. It will feel uncomfortable because no one likes to examine what's hidden. Know that current transformations are for the best, even if you feel a temporary pull towards old, destructive ways. Confronting your demons is crucial now.
Mercury enters your relationship sector, bringing discussions and clarity. You'll be able to come to terms with endings and regrets and look forward to something brighter on the horizon. The return of old friends or group dynamics will help you understand where you're at now. The way you interact with others (romantically and platonically) is changing and you'll discover exactly what that means this week.
