WEEK OF September 27 – October 3, 2021
Financial planning time! On Monday, September 27, Mercury spins retrograde in your second house of income, sounding the call for savvy budgeting. Cashflow may be streaming, but get smarter about saving so you’re prepared for any inevitable extras that might pop up. A temporary austerity plan may be in order between now and October 18. But don’t cinch your belt so tightly that you cut off circulation! Starving yourself of all pleasure and luxury will only spur a rebellious binge. Create a special account for your indulgences, so you can shop responsibly without blowing the rent money. If you’ve been saving and planning diligently, use the retrograde to research a long-awaited investment purchase. Think “practical luxury” here, Virgo, because if you’re going to spend THAT kind of cash you want to make sure you get lots of mileage from the splurge. With Mercury retrograde, read all the fine print and make sure there’s a solid return policy and warranty. Naturally, it would be better to wait until AFTER October 18 to make any bigger buys; however, if a once-in-a-lifetime deal arrives, you may have to proceed…with care and caution.
If you’ve been waiting for the right time to introduce a new person to your crew, Wednesday could be it. Convivial Venus in Scorpio gets in flowing formation with openhearted Neptune in Pisces, melting the ice. But don’t go into this trying to prove something! People will either gel or they won’t, which says more about THEM than you. If you’re inviting a love interest along, center yourself before the meetup. Although it’s nice to have, you don’t actually need your friends’ seal of approval. (In fact, you might be met with unexpected critiques…ugh!) Here’s the thing: The relationship “part” of you may be different than the side that shows up in platonic bonds. As long as you know why you’re into your boo, that’s all that really matters.
On Thursday, Venus in Scorpio tangos with another planet, squaring “more is more” Jupiter. This mashup could make you prone to excess and a bit of TMI. In addition to blurting out words that you’ll quickly regret, your head may spin with too many Google searches, opinion polls and statistics. Close the opinion polls! Yes, we know that’s a big ask. Analytical Virgos like to weigh all the pros and cons before making important decisions. Ask a hundred people to weigh in and you’ll get a hundred different perspectives. But what feels right to YOU? Mute outside feedback and turn up the volume on your inner voice. And if you DO need to research, make sure you’re checking credible sources and weighing in with legit experts, not the latest self-appointed guru in the field. And when it comes to presentations, opt for “moderate minimalism.” Stick to sleek fonts and clean templates but add some arty touches to avoid falling into a generic trap.
