Welcome to Virgo Season! With the Sun now in the 6th sign of the zodiac, we open up to the energies of work, service, health, and nutrition. If things feel messy post eclipse, use Virgo to make a list and get organized over the next four weeks.

Happy Leo New Moon! Happy solar eclipse! This is a time in the lunar calendar when we turn our attention to themes of identity, self expression, creativity, and passion. New moons are new beginnings and this one will set us on a path for the coming six months.

The Moon’s in Gemini, Mercury’s still retrograde, and we continue to review and reevaluate our choices. The beauty of Mercury Retrograde is that it gives us an opportunity to choose something new. With Saturn opposing the Moon, we will also have to face the reality of our choices.

Moon moves into restless, inquisitive Gemini today, touching on our current Mercury Retrograde story. Over the last few days we’ve started to take a second look at our choices. What is working in our life and what is not? What needs a fresh pair of eyes?

Moon in Taurus picking up on some prickly vibes. Normally Taurus likes to keep things chill, but we’re dealing with big issues around value, security, trust, and stability. As we gear up for next week’s eclipse, pay attention to what you are feeling today. It’s all connected.

Mercury turns retrograde tomorrow at 11 Virgo, drilling into the choices we’ve made and discernment needed to known right from wrong. With energy running high and fast, Mercury will help us take a step back, reflect, and be more thoughtful and conscientious.

As we move toward the solar eclipse on August 21, we can’t forget that Mars will be playing a staring role this month. Trailing the Sun in Leo, it will fall just a few degrees shy of the eclipse. Make no mistake, Mars agitates and heats things up.

Leaving behind the intellectual and cool detachment of Aquarius, the Moon moves into Pisces. We’re overly sensitive and intuitive as a result. Just days out from the full moon, emotional energy is still running high — uncomfortably so.

One eclipse down, another to go. Life is a bit loud now that we’re in eclipse season. There may even be a few plot twists, too. But that’s what eclipses do; they push along the narrative of our life and in August we’re opening up a new chapter.

Jupiter squares Pluto today, the last of three connections that has pushed at the boundaries of our faith and beliefs since late 2016. Pluto employs intense pressure to anything it touches, forcing a reckoning as well as a total transformation.
