Mercury turns retrograde on the 2nd in Virgo, your solar tenth house, to return to Leo, your solar ninth house, on the 8th before resuming direct motion on the 26th. When in Leo, Mercury can play havoc with travel planets, triggering delays and even cancellations. It also will be tough to get information from people at a distance. While in Virgo, you’ll want to pay particular attention to details at work; double-check everything you do. Despite the potential for travel hassles, favorable planetary alignments involving your solar ninth house are good for research and increasing your knowledge on any subject. Attend a conference or company training session if you have the opportunity because this could lead to a career advancement. It’s also possible you’ll be called for jury duty. Neptune returns to Aquarius, your solar third house, on the 4th, where it aligns with the Moon in the same sign on the 13th. This is a great combination for conversation and presentations if you remember that Mercury is retrograde. Confirm facts, figures, and information before sharing it or speaking up in meetings because someone will surely ask for proof. Don’t believe everything you hear. The August 29 Moon in Virgo highlights your solar tenth house of career and status. You’ll be highly visible into September, so you’ll want to take advantage of this time to reinforce your position. A step up is possible, although it could be delayed until next month, and you may hear news of an impending raise or bonus.
