As September begins, thoughtful Mercury has turned retrograde August 30th. Mercury is now in conjunction with Jupiter exactly on the 2nd of September. Some may have an optimistic attitude and natural thirst for knowledge, which impels them to pursue new experiences. Some are skillful at gathering all the facts and communicating with enthusiasm. This can be an excellent time for writing, speaking, teaching or selling. Also, it is an excellent time for philosophical and contemplative ruminations. A new moon solar eclipse in Virgo squares Saturn still in Sagittarius on the 1st. It is time to go back to school and work revs up for the fall season. Life may seem to lack in opportunities and current career situations may feel confining or boring. This can be a period of low confidence and energy, so obstacles, limitations, inhibitions and delays should be met with patient scrutiny. A way out can be found as Mercury and Jupiter can help to uncover options.
