Mercury and Venus are changing signs this week. Mercury will be going into Venus' home sign Libra on Tuesday September 2 and Venus will be going into Mercury's home sign Virgo on Thursday September 5. When planets are in each other's signs they are said to be in "Mutual Reception" and this supposedly creates a sort of friendly understanding between the two vibrations. Like strangers who are now walking a mile in the other man's shoes, this change in perspective could signal greater understanding now evolving for all of us as we find ourselves more willing to consider alternative points of view. It's as if last month we had Venus in Leo demanding "I deserve cake!" and Mercury in Virgo responding, "You can't afford the calories!" This week those stubborn attitudes will change perhaps because Venus in Virgo won't be so insistent and Mercury in Libra will want to find a compromise.

On the world scene Venus leaving the Leo party sign suggests we may find leaders are finally willing to leave their scripted responses. Those who didn't dare promote anything other than the party line are starting to recognize the folly of their former opinions, and are now desiring to behave with less flamboyance - Venus in Leo - and demonstrate good sense -Venus in Virgo - which may lead to more equitable solutions - Mercury in Libra.
In our personal lives this planetary change allows us all to gracefully release old prejudices and to find ways to create win-win situations.
Use this planetary guide to help you make the most of this opportunity:
Monday September 1;
The Moon enters Sagittarius. See the big picture and see it for yourself. Don't let other's impose their limited beliefs on you.

Mercury goes into Libra. Now try to see things from the other guys point of view. In each situation ask, "How can we make this work for everyone?"
Wednesday September 3:
The Sun trines Pluto. This transformative aspect only happens once a year. Wonderful opportunities for healing and improvements. Some may try to use this power to coerce others. The more enlightened know true change comes from within.
Thursday September 4:
The Moon enters the sign Capricorn. Over the next two days the Moon will be connecting with every planet giving us a rare chance to get a glimpse of where our new attitudes are leading. If you've used this week's insights to promote peace and understanding in your world you may be very nicely rewarded. If the day doesn't go so well - STOP AND THINK! For good or ill, Moon in Saturn's home sign only gives you exactly what you deserve.
