Under the Virgo Sun

Our minds are marching to the precision drumming of the CEO of the Zodiac, Virgo.  Problems get solved this week with Virgo’s exacting craftsmanship combined with Mental Mercury’s studious accuracy.

The opening act is the hot-blooded Aries Moon being jolted by lightning bolts out of the blue from Urgent Uranus.  This up front and personal Moon joins with the mythic god of lightning to guarantee
surprising shifts in perception, fueled by wide awake intuition. 

As she's leaving Cancer Thursday morning, the goddess of love packs a yummy lunch-to-go so she won’t be late for her premiere appearance on Leo’s creative stage (7:48 AM, PDT).   She may put on airs, but her boldness in romance is so engaging we'll forgive her overindulgences!  Venus in Leo wins our hearts with her loyalty and creative passion. 


The Force of waking up is with you.
Here’s your horoscope for the week of September 2, 2012:

Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
Sunday the Acrobatic Aries Moon is happily doing cartwheels when she lands on the god of lightning, sparking her mood with sudden changes and adding merriment to his game plan.  Your heightened intuitive abilities and original imagination pick up on the excitement in the air. You're looking for something unconventional to do. You turn (or trip) over the Taurus tortoise and
discover an untapped gold mine of personal resources, some quite surprising. It just gets better starting Friday when Venus moves into Leo for the next four weeks. Wildfires like this actually create new growth.  

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Profoundly profitable.  That describes your week.  This gets highlighted on Tuesday when the Moon gets to sit down and take a load off in the earthy arms of your Talented Taurus (8:41 AM, PDT).  Take this opportunity to let the high energy of Sunday and Monday settle into a deeper groove.   Mental Mercury in Virgo is your helpful sidekick, and he’s holding a very successful board meeting with Powerful Pluto, voting you in for a period of sustained emotional well-being.  A thorough look at your resources finds a buried treasure.  A wealth you didn’t know you had.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Although Virgo has your feet on the ground, your week is so loaded with fantasies and imagination that you may loose your head anyway!  The Moon packs up her Taurus treasures and climbs the airwaves of Curious Gemini at 9:10 Thursday evening.  There’s a lift in your mood and an opening in your heart.  Just before the weekend, watch for flashes of genius, the one thing that’s hard to overdo this week. The last quarter square of the Virgo Sun and the Gemini Moon marks a day of reconnoitering this Saturday.  What have you done with the opportunities that arrived about 21 days ago?  Cut loose what isn’t working, and put your energy in things showing signs of success.   Romantic respite this weekend.  Log off and relax.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Surprises are in store for you, particularly Monday.  They’ll come at you fast.  The goddess of love is spending five more days in your sign, so you’ve enjoyed an extra dose of very sweet home since August 7th.  But on her way out your door, Venus gets a cold shoulder from Serious Saturn in Libra, dampening your spirits.  It’s enough to make you want to say goodbye to a comfortable situation, but don’t.  Saturn just wants you to take a sober look at your relationships, particularly with family members.  Any pie-in-the-sky dreams will crash, but the time tested connections are becoming more secure.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Love to see you glow!  This week your heart warms, your energy is high, and a sunny welcome is in your big smile--once you get through a mid-week snare of negativity.  Thursday evening the goddess of love appears center stage in your life, lavish, ardent and theatrical.  For the next 26 days your love of life paints everything around you in vivid technicolor.  The weekend is your time to shine, especially if your birthday falls in early August.  You’ll bring happiness, and likely beautiful music, to everyone.  

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Burn your to-do lists in the birthday candles!  If your birthday is this weekend, you’ll start your personal New Year at a pivotal time in the lunar cycle.  The stage is set for you to use your wise discernment (Virgo) and consciously let go of the need to multi-task (Gemini) or set insanely high standards. You’re going for the Gold in communications.  The confidence of knowing exactly where you stand on the planet combines with a resourceful use of your money and talents to make mid-week a peak experience of success.  Your feet are on the ground, and your head is at the bank!

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Inspired and innovative, you start your week on fire with energy.  Still, you may be tempted to put love under a microscope.  Don't.  Your muse, Venus, is spending her last days in Cancer, and Serious Saturn (yes, he’s still in Libra for 5 more weeks!) throws a chilly wet blanket over her In the wee hours of Monday morning. Saturn’s sober look at your relationships can be helpful, but a somber look, you have to say no.  Venus gets a fresh start in Leo Thursday evening, where she gets to be her lavishly loving self for the next 26 days.  Love’s in full bloom.

Scorpio ♏  (October 23-November 21)
Bewitching hours fill your week with magic  Right out of the gate on Monday, your Scorpio roots get a tug from transformative Pluto, making for ups and downs of volatile emotions.  Never fear, reason will win over restless impulsivity, thanks to the Virtuous Virgo Sun.  Warrior Mars in Scorpio gives you easy access to your powerful courage, and a you find a key to focusing your willpower in the direction you want, and change the things you can.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
You’re on fire with original ideas and a big itch to try something quite unusual.  Your week starts fast, and stays that way.  Tuesday the god of lightning is still in play, hurling epiphanies your way faster than you can write them down! You’ve barely caught your breath when the goddess of love takes her throne in Leo, your favorite art teacher.  If you can curtail your over the top enthusiasm just a little bit, you’ll learn the quiet joys in your relationships are your greatest treasure.  Definitely throw a party for the weekend!

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Put your feet up and relax.  This week moves you closer and closer to the kind of meticulous thinking that dots the i’s and crosses the t’s and helps you decide on better nutrition, better health, better investments.   After you duck some of the impulsive vibes of Sunday and Monday, you find yourself happily content with a slower pace, courtesy of Taurus the Tortoise.  Time to let the powerful transformations Pluto is bringing you settle in.  A thorough look at your resources finds a buried treasure.  A wealth you didn’t know you had.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
The Virgo Sun gets a dose of overindulgence from a too Generous Jupiter in Gemini, your intellectual buddy.  Virgo’s love of shopping, combined with the loose generosity of Jupiter, makes the end of the week a dangerous time to be at the mall.  You’ll have a tendency to rationalize lots of purchases on the grounds that it’s such a bargain!  Under the heady influence of this weekend’s Gemini Moon, you sparkle with flashes of ingenious ideas and intuitive hunches.  

Pisces ♓  (February 18-March 19)
The in-sync well-being you have this week, will have you feeling competently in charge of your life.  Mercury in Virgo gets a helpful push from Warrior Mars in Scorpio around mid-week to re-examine the bottom line, and look for hidden clues in the fine print.  Nobody loves reading the fine print, even exacting Virgo, but a helpful Warrior Mars in the intense waters of Scorpio points out where a few hidden details could come back later to sting you.  Pay attention to surprises that pop up.
