A little more planetary movement this week, as the Sun moved into Virgo on Sunday, but apart from the Moon’s natural progress, the rest of the planets stay where they are at present, just moving by a few degrees. Next week, both Mercury and Venus move signs, but this week is fairly ‘quiet’ astrologically. As I mentioned, the Sun is now in modest, organized, modest, particular Virgo, this can make us a bit finicky at times, as we naturally want everything to be just right.

The Moon starts the week in domineering, exuberant, melodramatic Leo, with a Full Moon on Monday, making us more over-the-top in certain situations. On Tuesday it moves into responsive, inquisitive, logical Virgo. On Thursday the Moon moves into charming, harmonious, peaceful Libra. On Sunday it moves into determined, jealous, strong-willed, Scorpio, finishing the week there.

Mercury remains in balanced, decisive, fussy Virgo, this week, with a methodical, structured and detailed approach.

Venus remains in loving, expressive & excessive Leo, for this week, with possible overly dramatic reactions.

Mars remains in compulsive, envious, responsive, resourceful Scorpio, until the middle of next month, with a need for personal control over people and situations. Jupiter is now approximately one third of the way through benevolent, extrovert, positive, expansive Leo, making us kind-hearted.

Saturn remains in responsible, shrewd, strong-willed Scorpio, until the end of 2014. It is now traveling Direct, enabling self expansion in some respects. Uranus remains in assertive, blunt, energetic, self-willed Aries, for several years, and can make us individualistic and rebellious, unexpected events or disruptive emotional matters, may distract us, or help us see things differently.

Uranus is currently travelling Retrograde until shortly before Christmas, helping us come up with ingenious ideas, with a need to use them creatively. Neptune remains in sensitive, intuitive Pisces for the foreseeable future, and helps us gradually develop more empathy, compassion, and build understanding, in a wide variety of ways, but also indicates a need to remain realistic.

Neptune is now traveling Retrograde until Mid December, indicating boundaries between reality and illusion may blur at times, causing possible confusion, with a need to look at people and situations realistically.

Pluto remains in Capricorn for quite a few years, so is a very long term influence, showing knowledge gradually acquired on deeper levels, with balance, & realistic ways of recycling & developing our intuitive knowledge further, to use practically. Pluto travels Retrograde until late September, with a relentless search for inner truth, furthering our self knowledge approached the right way.
