Welcome to Virgo season, Stargazers! It’s time to sweat the small stuff—get your to-do lists, budgets, and plans in order.
As we say goodbye to scorching summer days and anticipate the mysterious allure of the upcoming spooky season, September brings with it a number of noteworthy celestial events. Mercury, the planet of communication, is still in retrograde until September 15. This means that all zodiac signs might experience some glitches in their communication, so make sure to double check plans, revisit old projects, and avoid making impulsive decisions.
Like Beyonce on the Renaissance tour, Virgo season is in full swing, catalyzing practicality, organization, and attention to detail. Those born under this sign might feel a surge of energy and clarity, while others can harness this Virgoan energy to declutter, plan, and set intentions for the upcoming months. It’s a period during which meticulous planning and a grounded approach will serve everyone well.
Lastly, Jupiter, the planet of expansion and luck, enters retrograde until the end of the year. This longer retrograde phase encourages introspection and re-evaluation of our goals and aspirations. While it might seem like progress is slow, this period is crucial for realigning with our true desires and ensuring that we enter and/or stay on the right path. Embrace the unhurried pace, reflect on your journey, and trust that the universe has your back.
