VIRGO (August 23–September 23)
Planetary ruler Mercury in Libra opposes retrograde Jupiter in Aries twice this month. First, on September 6 and again on September 18, after Mercury stations retrograde on September 9. Two celestial negatives in this case equal a positive, inspiring a close examination of how you share intimacy, resources, beliefs, and information. Mercury retrograde's conjunction with Venus on September 26 is a diplomatic cushion for the difficult realities needed to be shared with your partner. Mercury retrograde trines retrograde Pluto September 27. You've privately rehearsed confrontation many times, but do you still really feel it in your heart? Take your time.
