Aug 22 Bye bye Royal Leo passions, we shed our big drama ego roles and come very down to earth as the Sun enters VIRGO – till Autumn Equinox, Sept 22. Time to feel LIKE A VIRGIN. Makin’ love for the very first time.
Virgo the Virgin- Goddess of the Harvest, is whole and complete unto herself. She NEVER has dirty laundry lying around.
Time to sort the wheat from the chaff, most of you don’t even know what that phrase means anymore. The focus is on getting down to the very practical humdrum, maintenance of life. Kids are returning to school, the seasons begin to change.
It’s earthy pragmatic, take account of of what your hard work has brought you so far.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury which follows the Sun one day after on Aug 23. We are getting doubly messaged about taking care of the details.
How very Virgo of the Universe, to remind us twice to not forget our need to do the laundry and clean up our messes.Virgo’s love hard work, discipline, organizing and being frugal.
In the Tarot the sign of VIRGO adorns the Hermit the 9th Trump.
The Hermit, like Virgo, through deep stillness and focusing inwards, finds their own truth and inner light.
Virgo’s are always on time, balance the budget, follow through on 5 year plans. They are artful tradespeople and take pride in doing a good job for the satisfaction that it brings. Virgo’s are analytical, intellectual and often have great memories They often work in the health industry, as dietitians, pharmaceuticals, alternative medicine, chiropractor’s. They make especially good accountants, statisticians, etc.
What turns Virgo’s on? Order, practical,simple efficient high quality, good value. Books. Ideas. Walks in nature. Punctuality, meticulous cleanliness.They are nit picky, dependable, perfectionists, pragmatic, organized, analytical, devoted. They like to talk about intellectual matters, analyze economics, numbers, books. They will always remember a birthday or anniversary. As they are Workaholics, you may not see them that much. Don’t expect lavish gifts or frilly lingerie ladies, they are frugal and would buy you something practical. You will need to clean up your act, diet and routine for a Virgo. They will show their love for you by cleaning up you mess, fire and air signs.
Virgo’s often have underlying health issues, they worry a lot. Their most sensitive part is their upper intestine and they do tend to have digestive issues, crone’s disease, celiac and such. They are great at watching their diet, exercising etc. when they need to.
Virgo’s love being in nature and care deeply about the environment. The Pluto in Virgo Generation born after the Baby Boomer’s Pluto in Leo -total consumption lifestyle is to clean the world up.
Virgo’s are sensible, the opposite of Pisces which is all dreams, illusions, fantasy, ephemeral, spirituality. Virgo’s do the grease monkey work so that you can ride your dream Cadillac all refurbished on a golden afternoon. Virgo’s are the one’s with the stains on their hands- No their not, they carefully wash their hands and keep their nails scrupulously clean.
Check out which house the Virgo Sun and Mercury will be passing through in your own chart as clues and keys to where you need to take account, clean up your act, and be of service, focused, watch your spending.
What if you have no Virgo cusp in your chart?
If you have no Virgo cusp- or access to Virgo. This looks like, Leo for example and the entire sign of Virgo is contained within one house which then ends in early Libra. That is called an intercepted house. It has to do with where you were born on the earth. YOu would look at Virgo in the ocntext of that particular house. I have Virgo in my 10th house, it is intercepted. So I need to work hard on my career and public image for the next solar month. How do you access your Virgoness with an intercepted Virgo? I would then look at where the sign of Gemini is in the chart as Mercury also rules Gemini. Gemini is in my 8th house cusp. Therefore I would look at how the detailed work of Virgo can totally transform my life and soul on the deepest levels.
BEST THINGS TO DO AT VIRGO TIME.
De-clutter, organize your finances, finish those baby & photography albums; Get your diet and lifestyle into shape. Join book groups and clubs, learn practical skills, canning, DIY, crafts. Find fun in cleaning, be grateful for what you do have. Commit to being of service.
