Mercury changed signs on Tuesday, Sept 18, entering Virgo.The planet of Rational Thinking and Making Decisions is happy to be in its own sign. Both Mercury significations and Virgo significations will do well for the next few weeks. Virgo is the sign of Details & Analysis. Mercury in Virgo is good for Critical Thinking. Mercury is the planet of Communications, therefore Speech & Writing, and The Media. This is a good planetary pattern for Investigative Reporting. Mercury is not under any other planetary influence while in Virgo, except for conjunction with Sun, which doesn't harm Mercury. Mercury will be in Virgo until October 6th, when it moves to Libra, where it joins up with Venus & Jupiter.
