On September 5, Mars (energy, assertion, aggression) enters the EARTH sign Virgo, whose practical nature helps to ground it. Virgo’s obsession with little details keeps Mars occupied with the small stuff rather than with the big picture. In Virgo, the energy and drive of Mars are focused on being helpful, trying to make the physical world a better place. Mars continues in Virgo until October 22.
On September 5, Mercury (one’s thinking, communication), which has been retrograde since August 12, goes direct today. It remains in its “storm” (moving very slowly) until September 11, at which point communications and business transactions should go more smoothly.
