Moon GoddessThis week we will have a double whammy astrologically. The New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Virgo will bring sudden changes in your destiny. As we plunge into Mercury Retrograde in Virgo on August 30th to September 22nd communication could begin to slow down between home and work and will definitely require patience.

It’s a time to reassess our relationship with co-workers and loved ones and think about how we have treated others. Do you feel misunderstood or have the need to be right all the time? Mercury Retrograde in Virgo will ask you to be more self-aware and evaluate where you might have lacked empathy or consideration towards family and friends.

Add the Solar Eclipse in Virgo on August 31st to the mix and this Labor Day weekend should be quite memorable. What does the New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Virgo have in store for you? First, be prepared for your life to change. Either you can go with the flow or be dragged along with it. Either way, the results will be positive in the end.

There are times in our life where we’re given two paths to choose from. Perhaps we decided to take another job, end a relationship or move to a new city. This month you will have an opportunity to choose again. Will it be door number one or door number two?

New Moons are a time for beginnings and in Virgo, you may feel the need to focus on the details. There may even be a feeling of frustration because of the lack of movement in the past or a resolution to a problem. Not to worry, that’s all going to change this week and quickly. When one door closes another one always opens. This year, the Solar Eclipse in Virgo wants you to be more open to the journey and the experiences you will have along the way over the next year in 2017.

During this period the universe will ask you to deal with unfinished business from the past. For too long you made the same choices over and over again, ignored good advice and you have been stuck in a situation that no longer serves you. It’s time to let go and set your heart free.

Remember, we are the ones who determine out ‘destiny,” based on our life choices, which in the end helps us build character and grow as a person. Be mindful of who you allow into your heart and home. Now is the time to take the chance to build the dream life you always wanted.

The Astrology planets most affected by the New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Virgo are earth zodiac signs: Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn. Also, the zodiac sign Pisces could fee the effects on an emotional and spiritual level. All other zodiac signs will feel the repercussions of Mercury Retrograde. Remember, don’t sign any agreements until after September 22nd.
