Metal Season kicked off, 8/8 (auspicious numbers in Eastern astrology), and goes until November 7th – Metal is connected to morality, justice, organization, and connecting others, in Chinese medicine and 5 Element theory. The imbalanced states are grief, regret, and inflexibility.
Mercury goes Retrograde on Wednesday, August 23rd at 3:59pm, and Sun enters Virgo that same day at 5am EDT. Mercury, the planet connected to communication and electronics, and the sign that happens to be ruled by Mercury is Virgo….so this will be an extra dose of Mercury retrograde during Virgo time.
Great opportunity to go back and get organized, structured, and finish those “meant to be done” projects. We will have retrograde for 3 weeks, a time to catch your breath and up your self-care plan, and schedule for the busy Metal, then Water season.

Dominant Metal Chart or those with metal as their useful element will be just, courageous, and decisive this season.
If you have a West Facing Door, meaning when you walk out of your house you face West, place something yellow or earth in the South, place green & black in the North and Black in the East and Southeast to create harmony and balance with your home or office and the front door.
