…and nit-picky and worrisome come to my mind as well as wanting to help at all costs
This is the fourth planet to enter Virgo this month and it will be joined by the Moon tomorrow.
Mercury in Virgo is very analytical and rather sceptical becoming quite fastidious, even nagging, in its love of detail. Entering Virgo it has the company of Venus and Mars already in this sign.
These characteristics could be even more accentuated when Mercury squares Jupiter, now in Sagittarius, on 5th September but perhaps the trine to Saturn, also retrograde, in Capricorn, on the same day may ground and put a reality check on this tendency to overdo.
Shortly after its square to Jupiter and trine to Saturn, Mercury will oppose Neptune retrograde in Pisces on the 7th September, our thinking could get fuzzy however much effort we put into getting the details right.
It’s certainly going to be an interesting ride, particularly for the Mutable signs of Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces and Gemini.
