Mercury at 19 degrees 53 minutes Virgo is opposition retrograde Neptune at 19 degrees 53 minutes Pisces at 6.44 pm GMT 7.44 pm BST 30th August 2020.

There is difficulty thinking about and discussing important and detailed information due to a lack of focus or an urge to avoid discussing issues that are a cause of uncertainty. A lot of patience and attention will have to be paid to all the essential information in matters that have to be revised due to confusion or a lack of clarity in communication. Deception at this time can be a cause of anxiety, especially if you have a tendency to criticise yourself too harshly in how you respond if you interact with those who are dishonest. The best option is to find a balance between intuition and common sense if you want to get to the truth.

Showing how much you care about the people who you cherish in your life involves a reconsideration of what you are willing to do for them to show compassion and empathy. If you’re not quite sure what to do with your time at the moment, you could find you’re in the mood to relax and take a rest from the demands of reality. An enjoyment of what makes you comfortable and gives you a feeling of safety and security, combined with escaping from the harshness of reality can be very appealing. There will be some individuals who will enjoy reminiscing about their past, although they may only choose to remember nice experiences and ignore the ones that were harsh.

Greater mental sensitivity and creative imagination can be quite pleasant to experience during this transit. You may want to take some time to retreat into your own world for a while. Studying artistic and creative subjects should go well. Your ability to understand and consider the harsh aspects of reality will take a back seat for now. Revising sensitive issues could go well whether they’re yours or someone else’s, if you want kindness and compassion. This is especially the case if there is a shared mental and emotional connection.

What you think you want in terms of what can make your present circumstances materialistically more comfortable conflicts with fulfilling your emotional needs, which are hard to pin down. It’s possible there will be those who feel that something is missing and may try to fill the void with money and possessions. New romantic attachments during this transit are short-lived, as they’re ended when reality overwhelms fantasy of what is expected to be received.

A revisit to the ideals that you dream of and want to work towards attaining will give you a chance to reassess what your goals are or should be. Although ambitions formed now could be unrealistic; sound judgement can put the least feasible options to one side. There are opportunities for success and lucky breaks, but you will have to be on the lookout for them; don’t expect them to land in your lap. Also don’t ignore any wisdom from those who are older or who have a wealth of experience; use it to your advantage. Especially if chances that appear too good to be true pop up and where it’s easy to see the pros and cons may be obscured.

By reviewing how you’re affected by uncertainty you will be in stronger position to deal with how it affects you. Have confidence in your emotional responses and your instinct. Believe it or not, during this transit sensitivity is strength not a weakness; you will know how to protect yourself if you feel vulnerable. Regenerate your strength by taking time to escape for a while; do what you can to be kind to yourself. Look at what part of you should be nurtured. For creative individuals, your creations could gain some attention due to the emotional or sentimental connection others may feel towards what you have created.

This transit opens up a flow of opportunities to take part in activities that you feel enthusiastic about, which can broaden your knowledge and a range of skills. Blind optimism is put to one side and a more sensible view is taken when choosing the right moment to respond if there are lucky breaks to be used to your advantage. If there is any involvement in legal issues that have been delayed, it’s advisable to use the time available to prepare for such matters for another time, especially if neither side is in the mood for a battle. Making an effort to improve your overall health should go well and the effort made to address health how your health has been affected by over-indulgence should be productive.

Persistent and gentle action to make the most of waves of energy that drive you to go against the grain, to attain powerful achievement is generally successful. Strength and resilience that have been just under the surface will make their presence known. The control and power you have in reserve may have been overlooked; use your intuition and concentration to find where and when they can be efficiently used for your benefit. There is a feeling that action must be taken to make a transformation somehow and somewhere, but use the influence of retrograde Pluto in this transit to get yourself to the best strategic position before Pluto turns direct.

Impulsive enthusiasm may be felt about what you dream is possible for you to do. In fact you will have a stronger inclination to initiate action regardless of the outcome. What happens isn’t necessarily what you imagined. The vision of what you are capable of may be out of touch with reality, which may only lead to disappointment. Allowing intuition or what you feel you should do may not be the best option to take.  You will find that you have to adapt to avoid problems that will otherwise drain your energy and be a source of unnecessary anxiety.

Facing up to the trials and challenges of reality may cause anxiety if you don’t feel you have enough strength to cope with them. It’s possible you won’t know what to do and which direction to take; this is emphasized if you feel you are misled or deceived. It’s easy to be discouraged or unsure when you would normally have faith and confidence in your abilities, but the effect of this transit will soon pass. Personal recognition at this time is superficial. This isn’t so bad if the recognition that is received is negative, but don’t be fooled by false praise from those with ulterior motives.
