Sun in Virgo trine retrograde Saturn in Capricorn 17th September 2020

The Sun at 25 degrees 27 minutes Virgo is trine retrograde Saturn at 25 degrees 27 minutes Capricorn at 9.37 pm GMT 10.37 pm BST 17th September 2020.

Personal achievements can be attained by accepting your responsibilities and using them to your advantage. Competence and conscientiousness are useful to pick up on and correct faults that would become obstructive if left to their own devices. A lot can be done, especially if there is a need to become organised or declutter; a life laundry can also be successful. If you need to project an image of being professional and want your skills to be taken seriously, this transit will be very helpful.

Sun in Virgo trine retrograde Pluto in Capricorn 15th September 2020

The Sun at 22 degrees 35 minutes Virgo is trine retrograde Pluto at 22 degrees 35 minutes Capricorn at 12.05 am BST 15th September 2020.

It’s time to be analytical to review all the necessary details on how you can gain more control and power over your life. This can be hard work but very rewarding. Having confidence in your intelligence and your ability to constructively deal with criticism makes if fairly easy for you to transform and eliminate restrictions that affect your ability to attain substantial achievements. 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.

Sun in Virgo opposition retrograde Neptune in Pisces 11th September 2020.

The Sun at 19 degrees 33 minutes Virgo is opposition retrograde Neptune at 19 degrees 33 minutes Pisces at 8.26 pm GMT 9.26 pm BST 11th September 2020.

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.

Sun in Virgo trine retrograde Jupiter in Capricorn 9th September 2020

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.

Mercury in Virgo sextile Venus in Cancer 4th September 2020

Mercury at 28 degrees 26 minutes Virgo is sextile Venus at 28 degrees 26 minutes Cancer at 8.32 pm GMT 9.32 pm BST 4th September 2020.

Calm and quiet spaces to relax have a strong appeal at the moment. If the opportunity arises do what is best for your mind and heart. You could find you are busy filtering out those who you are not alienated from exactly, but who you are not connected with on a similar mental and emotional level. Discussions about love and friendship, where feelings can be freely and articulately expressed should make those involved feel wanted. If you want to tell someone how much you care about them, especially the little things they do for you then now is a good time to do so.

Mercury in Virgo trine retrograde Saturn in Capricorn 3rd September 2020

Mercury at 25 degrees 53 minutes Virgo is trine retrograde Saturn at 25 degrees 53 minutes Capricorn at 7.23 am GMT 8.23 am BST 3rd September 2020.

Long standing problems that have been running in the background can be resolved by analysing all possible solutions in detail. The ability to concentrate on important matters that should be taken seriously is heightened with this transit. Seeking advice from those who you consider to be older and wiser, or more experienced in dealing with a particular subject could be a good move. Plenty could be achieved by making the effort to become more organised with the intention of creating order to alleviate stress or anxiety caused by poor management.

Sun in Virgo trine retrograde Uranus in Taurus 2nd September 2020

The Sun at 10 degrees 34 minutes Virgo is trine retrograde Uranus at 10 degrees 34 minutes Taurus at 2.09 pm GMT 3.09 pm BST 2nd September 2020.

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 in Virgo trine retrograde Pluto in Capricorn 1st September 2020.

Mercury at 22 degrees 44 minutes Virgo is trine retrograde Pluto at 22 degrees 44 minutes Capricorn 10.40 am GMT 11.40 am BST 1st September 2020.

Any effort you make to analyse and go through every detail meticulously in what you have to do, before initiating a process of transformation when Pluto turns direct in the near future, should go quite smoothly. This is an opportunity to assess personal triggers for anxiety and self-doubt; ideas can be created and information can be sought to find out how to work with the effect of the triggers that can restrict you. Patience is helpful during this transit, as progress may not necessarily be quick. It has the potential to be constructive where substantial and important achievements can be made, to help you to gain power over your way of thinking and your mental well-being.

Mercury in Virgo opposition retrograde Neptune in Pisces 30th August 2020

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.

Mercury in Virgo trine retrograde Jupiter in Capricorn 29th August 2020.

Mercury at 17 degrees 44 minutes Virgo is trine retrograde Jupiter at 17 degrees 44 minutes Capricorn at 1.29 pm GMT 2.29 pm BST 29th August 2020.

Developing detailed plans for a brighter future can be ambitious without being over the top. Take another look at all the information that is the most useful to you and don’t shy away from seeking assistance from those who have gained wisdom from experience. There is a preference to avoid rather than confront mentally taxing problems; as it turns out this probably won’t be a serious issue. The mind can be opened up to many solutions which have been overlooked to what has played on your mind and needs to be resolved. Chances are the easy options are readily available and just as effective.
