It's chip-a-lot-of-rock day

Michelangelo had a vision, of what would become the Pieta, while visiting the local quarry. That masterpiece could have been lost to the world, except the Moon must have been in Virgo. So, he went home, got a wheelbarrow and a chisel, then chipped a lot of rock. Today you to can be a sculptor, under the serious tutelage of a Saturn who’s been wooed by an artful Venus under the Virgo Moon.

Get-down-to-it Thursday, January 12, 2012.

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Neatness counts, big time when the Moon is in Virgo. But the Moon has a happy companion in Jovial Jupiter, giving your imagination an expansive flavor. Your spirit is generous and you want to be helpful to others. You also get a lovely blessing in the area of communications--a fluency in the way you express yourself. Give a speech even if no one is listening but you.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You standards are high, even perfectionistic, with the Moon in your harmonic sign, Virgo. It’s a day of good sense and sensibility, and you’ll probably be happy cleaning out your desk drawers. A concurrent vibe comes in on a wave of compassion, and you can understand deeply the needs of those less fortunate than you. Not just their superficial wants, but the underlying need.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Artistic rhythm in all you do comes from a hand-in-hand cooperation between the goddess of love and, believe it or not, Serious Saturn. With the Moon in orderly Virgo, your thinking is constructive and productive. You can trust your intuition to get to the bottom of any emotional issue today. You’re eager to help others, and you have a good empathic understanding of their needs. What might appear as seriousness to some, is really a firm and stable approach to life.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
A very constructive day ahead for you. In fact, you may even feel like cleaning the windows for a better view of your world. Nothing showy about the Virgo Moon, although you’re actions are very in-sync and you feel good. You’re content to work behind the scenes to get things done--efficiently. You’ll feel your devotion to home and family very strongly today. Everything in it’s place.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Health and diet are foremost on your mind. Today’s a great time to keep that New Year’s resolution, or make a belated one. The right words just come to you, easily and with clarity. You may have the urge to clean your room, but turning your mind to more artistic endeavors will cure that! Even a tedious job like measuring for blueprints can appeal to you, if there’s a beautiful creation in it.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
The Moon entered your sign at 1:44 a.m., and orderliness began to rule the days ahead. It’s in your nature to feel calm and relaxed when you know your life’s in order. For Virgo, mess causes distress. Add in the Virgo Moon and you may try for perfection (always your goal). But there’s also a blessing now--health and wealth for your family and your home.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Common sense is in the forefront. When your thoughts are energized by your will, as they are today, you can feel the power to actualize your dreams. Your sense of order and balance is strong and right on target. Your relationships are inspired by Venus. It’s the kind of day that would be perfect for a wedding--twice blessed with not only beautiful harmonious feelings, but also a steadfast loyalty. The lovely gifts of Libra when she’s holding the orderly hand of Saturn.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Your normally strong willpower is even stronger today, and the force is felt in your words. So if you need to convince someone of your point of view, this is the day. The Moon in orderly Virgo adds structure and stability, so a great time to enter into a partnership or shore up one that is failing. You have the courage to overcome obstacles and get things done.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
It’s a “clean your room and put away your toys before bed” kind of a day. You get some good memory juice and your mind has an easy flow between conscious and unconscious material. With the Moon in an earth sign, you’re practical-minded, with a heightened sense of fair play. It’s an easy day to discuss your feelings or to tell someone what’s on your mind--memoir style.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
You’re carrying a great generosity of spirit and human kindness today. So many stars are in sync with your practical earthiness, that you just feel good. You want your home to be a place of happiness, a peaceful sanctuary. With a strong vibe from Powerful Pluto there’s an intensity of feelings, yes, but also this aspect bestows courage. Be bold.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Your business ability is sharp, especially if it relates to human services and the ability to recognize the needs of others. Serious Saturn is helping you put form to your artistic ideas. If you need to draw up some blueprints for a sandcastle, today’s the day. However, the Virgo Moon will insist that you clean up after yourself. Just go with it.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
This is a time you’ll feel your shyness, which only indicates that your more comfortable in the world of ideas that in the world of actions. A good time to go off by yourself. You strong will is fueling your thoughts today so you’ll know, more that you usually do, the power of your thoughts to manifest your dreams. And now you can apply that power in concrete ways, thanks to a boost from Serious Saturn. The Virgo Moon adds an extra serving of orderliness, making this a very productive day.

P.S. Make a date for this Friday the 13th, a very interesting Date Night!
