Today Mercury enters the constellation of Virgo, joining up with the Sun, Mars and Venus who are already hanging out in this earthy, intellectual sign. Mercury is the planet of thinking and communication. It rules our thought processes, how we analyze information, how we apply logic and reason to incoming data, and how we communicate. Mercury is the natural ruler of Virgo (as well as Gemini), so it is very strong here. The next few weeks are a perfect time to work on intellectual projects, get caught up on your to-do lists, set personal and professional goals, and get yourself organized. Virgo is also the sign of service to others, so don't be surprised if you find yourself contemplating the world's problems and how you'd like to help fix them. Soulful productivity must extend beyond the self to the greater collective. The flipside of this highly analytical Mercury/Virgo energy is an overactive mind. You may be more prone to stress, anxiety, and mental overload during this transit, so try to focus less on the quantity of objectives on your to-do list, and instead conserve your energy for the areas where you can be the most effective. Drink lots of water, get plenty of rest when you need it, meditate, unplug. Spend time in nature...put your back against a tree.
