There’s a lot going on with astrology this week! Mercury retrograde starts on Sept. 9 and we have a full moon in Pisces on Sept. 10. These events will bring a lot of chaos and emotions to everyone.

The Sun is in Virgo until Sept. 22, and this energy is great for getting into a routine and organizing our lives. We may find that during these times we may be overly critical or petty, and struggle in the search for perfection.

Mercury retrograde begins this week, but we may already be feeling its energy during its shadow period. Mercury retrograde isn’t as scary as it sounds; however, it can make communication with others a bit of a struggle, mess up our technology, and put our thinking in disarray.

Luckily, we go through these about three or four times a year and we can easily get through them! The best pieces of advice is to be mindful of how you’re communicating, avoid misunderstandings, make sure you save your online work often and have backups of very important files, take things slow, and don’t be so hard on yourself and others.

Chaotic Full Moon

The Moon is in Capricorn at the beginning of this week and will move into Aquarius on Sept. 7. When the Moon moves into Pisces on the 10th, it will be a full moon!

This is going to bring out many emotions. Pisces is known for being empathetic and sensitive, so during this full moon, some tears may be shed. We may find our emotions to be more intense, and will need to be released.

This is a great thing during the full moon! Full moons are a time for letting go of things that no longer serve us. A great thing to do for this full moon is write a letter stating what you want to release and what you want to work on.

For example, maybe you’ve felt more petty during Virgo season, want to release that irritation, and work on being more appreciative. Address this letter to the universe and remember to be grateful as you write them down!
