If you need to project an image of being professional and want your skills to be taken seriously, this transit will be very helpful.

Your self-esteem will benefit from the rewards of being patient enough to do your research and pay attention to all the little but essential details, if you have to assert your strength and gain personal recognition.

Maintaining equilibrium between being pragmatic about personal matters and retreating into your own little world won’t be the easiest task to do. There could be an urge to become organised, but distractions where you’re inclined to waste your time will steer you off course. Trying to find routes for escapism from reality for a while is tricky, but this is because now is not the time to seek them. It’s best to keep a clear head as there may be issues that have been running in the background that need to be clarified. Avoiding problems that you have been unsure about how you should handle them are only alleviated if they’re analysed so they can be resolved. This may cause anxiety if you think too much about how you feel you should respond.

The Sun at 17 degrees 26 minutes Virgo is trine retrograde Jupiter at 17 degrees 26 minutes Capricorn at 4.05 pm GMT 5.05 pm BST 9th September 2020.

Picking apart the pieces of the dominant issues in your life that need to be analysed before they are improved should go relatively smoothly. Self-criticism is not necessarily a negative trait at the moment, as it allows you to see your strengths and weaknesses to gain further knowledge about yourself. Recognition for your achievements that was overlooked or delayed may arrive, but the rewards could be received after Jupiter turns direct from retrograde motion. There is a cautious level of optimism where travel and finances are concerned, whilst taking into account it won’t all be plain sailing; conscientiousness and effort will pay off though.

Attending to your own interests down to the smallest detail possible can put you in a strong position, if there are unexpected events that require a practical response. Common sense solutions to personal issues that have been subject to over-thinking can arise from out of nowhere. Rules can be broken but it’s important to be clever about how it’s done. A slight restraint of progress can turn out to be beneficial, as this prevents mistakes that would disrupt your sense of order.

Mercury is conjunction the Sun at 25 degrees 10 minutes Leo at 3.08 pm GMT 4.08 pm BST 17th August 2020.

Positive reactions and feedback when you express your ideas and opinions strengthens your self-esteem. Verbal interaction with those who are just as enthusiastic about what you take pride in encourages you to share your knowledge; you can also obtain information from them. If you accept or seek a position of leadership that relies on your personality this could be a chance worth taking. Recognition can be easily found if it’s sought, especially if it’s through social media; be aware there can be a tendency to be over-confident about the response that can be expected.

There could be experiences during this transit that build strength of character by testing courage and persistence. Confidence and pride may suffer a knock or two due to how you respond to erratic or unexpected changes in circumstances. These changes raise problems that require practical solutions and common sense. It’s best not to be headstrong, or even arrogant enough to assume you know how to and are capable of resolving this on your own terms.

Previous limitations that were placed upon you in the recent past that you had to work through will make another appearance. However, the lessons you learned last time will help you to prepare for what is coming. Feeling an emotional connection with others who are in similar circumstances as you are will give you strength. Although there may be a sense of pessimism that could drag you down, there is a little bit of tenacity that can pull you through. For those who are lonely at the moment, don’t stop yourself from revealing your vulnerabilities to those who care about you.

Review what you need to change or get rid of what has a destructive effect on your health.
