Prudent Practicality: Mercury in Virgo August 7th – 27th, 2015

On August 7th, Mercury travels into Virgo. Native Virgos will benefit from the burst of clarity they can receive with their ruler working it’s way through the sign, as well as those with Mercury in Virgo natally. Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo, so his energy functions fluidly and easily in either sign of rulership.

Mercury in Virgo will infuse all mental and communication processes with the typical Virgo traits of analysis and logic. Looking at the finer details with a critical eye, and using solid reflection to make good judgments can allow the collective to literally collect themselves from all the possible drama and ‘oops’ moments Mercury in Leo caused. Mercury in Virgo is a slower, more steadfast way of thinking, favoring practicality, virtuous and ethical operations above spilt second and possibly questionable decisions. Also, while Mercury in Leo looked at the broad picture, Mercury in Virgo can bury themselves in the details.

Just be sure that your rationale doesn’t become too nit picky or critical, as Virgo can be known for. Try to utilize this time to reign in your grandiose thinking or communicating, and come up with more solid and practical solutions or transmissions. Virgo is all about serving others as well, so you may find yourself voicing support to others more readily than in the past. Helping others is a good thing to do, and goes along perfectly with the Virgo mentality, again, a noticeable shift from the Leo “me me me” mantra we all have become familiar with lately.

Here are some Mercury in Virgo keywords:

Resourceful, analytical, logical, detail oriented, critical thinking, voicing pickiness, good judgement, practical thinking, virtuous thoughts, ethical thoughts.
