The hot, calm, smoky conditions where I live really fit Mercury stationing in fiery, fixed Leo. Mercury is now direct but won’t reach Virgo until Saturday, about the time we’ll begin to see some improvement in air quality . . . *fingers crossed*. Sometimes we have no choice but to wait things out and this is one of them.
Mars entering Virgo is an interesting situation. It does mean less strum and drang but Mars is not at his best in Virgo. It doesn’t suit his natural full speed ahead preference because Mercury ruled Virgo has to look at every single detail before taking action. As a matter of fact, Mars won’t be happy until he reaches Scorpio on December 10. Libra’s wishy washy ways drive him nutters too. What we can do is put Mars in Virgo to work, doing some deep cleaning and organizing places like closets and garages. It will be an excellent time to recycle items we no longer use too.
