Just a few days ago on the 19th, Mercury moved into its domicile, Virgo, where it will stay until September 22nd. The arrival of Mercury in Virgo gives us a good preview of what’s to come once the sun moves from Leo into Virgo on the 23rd.
The domicile of a planet pertains to the zodiac sign that rules the planet – when a planet moves into its rulership, the energy becomes amplified. Mercury in Virgo’s influence means we will benefit from increased focus, analytical skills, and overall mental processing abilities. Think of Mercury in Virgo as a window of time in which we can audit the parts of our life that need some practical improvements: this is a time of total brain activation and an opportunity for us to tackle the more tedious or intricate projects with major attention to detail.
Additionally, because Virgo is associated with purity and health, this is a great time to address any health issues as the cosmic energy of Mercury in Virgo flows harmoniously.
Whatever you choose to do with the analytical energy of Mercury in Virgo, make sure to take advantage of the mental clarity that it brings. Rework and refine your approach so that you can create better solutions, whether it relates to work or even your health.
