In the Stars for September
The summer season winds down now that the transiting Sun is in Virgo and will shift into Libra on Sept. 22 at the Autumnal Equinox. The Sun’s force starts to diminish as the days grow shorter and cooler and the night grows longer. Nature starts to wind down in expectation of the rest of winter. Each year these cycles repeat themselves with consistency and we count on nature to maintain these celestial cycles. The Sun in Virgo brings us to the process of the evaluation getting to the critical details and gestation of the year’s production. This is a good time to evaluate your work productivity, clean up the garden, and spend time sorting what is useful from what is no longer relevant.
Virgo being a strong analytical earth sign focuses the energy on what is methodical, productive, and sensible. Doing a perfect job, taking a logical perspective, and acquiring facts and data are strong characteristics of the Virgo native. Virgo ruled by Mercury, stands for purity, and a discriminating mind as they love to sort and organize things. They are modest, efficient workers, and loyal friends: being of service makes them happy. They are fond of nutrition, gardens, pets any volunteer service. Writing provides them with a great outlet for their organizational talents. A serene countenance makes them approachable and they are likely to be thoughtful and serviceable. Happy Birthday, Virgo, let your creativity flow this year Saturn lends a beneficial trine to give you security and good opportunities will come if you have waited for that promotion. Uranus in Taurus lends more of an electrifying change to Virgo seeking to express in a new way, and Pluto in mid-degrees Capricorn continues to help transform those limiting belief structures.
