Mercury goes retrograde on 8/2, so ideally you have backed up your files an completed any important correspondence. This month’s forecast needs to be considered with the awareness of Mercury’s backward motion, because it is not the best time for initiating contracts or communications. Nonetheless, if something needs to start, choose the best day possible.
8/1 The Moon is VOC* from 2:20 to 4:42 am ET in Leo. It then goes VOC** again from 7:38 pm through the next day in Virgo.
Once it enters Virgo at 4:42 am (but before it goes VOC again) it is an excellent time to initiate an exercise or diet program. You can begin a volunteer or service project.
Any enterprise benefits from critical thinking and attention to details. “Luck” is in the outcome, especially when you let go of any perfectionist tendencies that can hamper growth.
*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Leo, you do well to play: window-shop, go to a museum or performance, flirt, make some artwork.
**Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Virgo, it’s great for organizing, finessing a project or exercise routine and clearing out closets.
