This month, we’re transitioning from playful Leo to hyper-focused Virgo. Virgo season may not officially begin until the 23rd, but with Mars and Venus into that sign (on the 18th and 21st, respectively), don’t be surprised if you start it a little early, complete with new office decor and a few cleaning sprees. Mercury into Virgo on the 29th helps you cross quite a few things off your to-do list, making room for you to set some shiny new goals under the Virgo new moon on the 30th.
If you’ve had to delay gratification on something you’ve been craving for the last few months, mark your calendar for 11th. That’s when lucky Jupiter will be direct again in its home sign of Sagittarius, sending a double dose of health and wealth your way. Now that you can relax again, Uranus retrograde in grounded Taurus reminds you to take time to reflect on what’s shifted for you so far this year before you make any more radical changes. Fortunately, the Aquarius full moon on the 15th will give you some much-needed perspective.
