Have you felt the energy of Mercury retrograde yet?

During this time, communication may be difficult and misunderstandings may arise. Technology is also more likely to crash and our minds may feel a little hazy. Remember to take things slow and steady; be patient with yourself and with others.

This time is also known for being reminded of the past, so be wary of exes and people you don’t talk to anymore. Be careful of their intentions, and why they want to come back into your life. Mercury retrogrades happen multiple times a year, so we are more used to them than you think!

We may find that people are more irritating for the next couple of months, and with Mercury in retrograde, we need to make sure we practice patience! 

Strive for perfection

The Sun remains in Virgo until Sept. 22. During this time, we may find ourselves striving for perfection but never achieving it.

You may also notice yourself and others being slightly more judgemental than usual, but this isn’t a bad thing. We all are just hoping to achieve perfection!

The Moon will be in Aries at the beginning of this week, which is going to make us more irritable and emotional. When the Moon moves into Taurus on Sept. 13, we will find more stability in our emotions and feel at peace.

The Moon will move into Gemini on Sept. 16, and we may find ourselves feeling more extroverted, albeit a little more air-headed, by then.

Mars moved into Gemini on Aug. 20, and it’s going to stay in this sign for about seven months. This is going to make things a little chaotic, as communication is going to pick up and people are going to be more willing to share their opinions.

This is mostly going to affect people with Gemini placements in their birth charts; however, Virgo, Pisces, Scorpio, and Sagittarius placements are going to feel this energy too.

As for Taurus, Cancer, and Capricorn placements, they will be going into a hibernation state and may be avoiding others during this time.

Leo, Aquarius, Aries, and Libra placements may find themselves being more socially active and extroverted.

Stability with moss agate

The crystal of the week is moss agate! This crystal is great for bringing stability and grounding one’s self. Carrying this stone with you may help calm this week’s irritably.

In addition to bringing inner peace, it will also help us open to communication and clear our hazy minds.
