Mercury Enters Virgo: Analyze This!

Mercury Enters Virgo: Analyze This!
When the communication planet (Mercury) enters one of the most analytical signs of the zodiac (Virgo) on Friday, September 9, you can bet our synapses will be working overtime for the next few weeks.

Mercury rules Virgo and while back home in her fastidious sign can’t help to get nit-picky. Watch over the next few weeks as people suddenly insist on parceling out every little detail, hidden meaning and potential pitfall. Neurotic tendencies reign supreme, so keep your wits and your aspirin close at hand.

The devil is in the details during Mercury’s stint in Virgo, so we can’t take any of the minutiae for granted. Edit, refine and perfect your process says Mercury in Virgo. But that doesn’t mean we should get obsessively or compulsively stuck going over the same details of a problem or situation in our mind until we make ourselves sick. Sometimes the best way to get clarity is to just let the whole thing go and walk away until the answer becomes clear. Sleep on it and tomorrow you could very well wake up with the solution.

Rumination, obsession and worrying oneself sick are the symptoms of Mercury in Virgo gone awry. The antidote is to drop out of the head, get back into a feeling state and try to reclaim a handle on the bigger picture. Although this is an excellent position for Mercury when it comes to problem solving, it’s a proverbial nightmare when it comes to shutting off the brain.

Better to put that mental energy into writing, working or serving others (just a few of the activities that Virgo do best). The upside is for those who have a harder time with detail-oriented tasks. You’ll welcome this fine-tooth-combing Mercury placement to hone your editing skills. And if there is someone or something you have wanted to psychoanalyze, you can now have a field day playing armchair analyst.
