Saturday, September 17th, 2011: Mercury is in Virgo from September 9th until September 26th, 2011. This boosts the potential for problem solving and clarifying the nature of problems. Mercury rules both Gemini and Virgo, but is said to also be exalted in Virgo, for Virgo helps to slow down and focus the fickle and sometimes scattered nature of Mercury. The worst that can happen with Mercury in Virgo is people getting stuck on details that are unimportant. The best is the ability to perceive key details that deepen meaning and bring problems into sharper focus. Now is the time to see what is wrong with everything, and to create real, practical and workable ways of addressing these wrongs.
