The cosmos is conspiring to rock your world -- now through September 23 -- particularly in the realms of love and beauty. Read on to find out how all the planetary action will affect you!
Virgo, an Earth sign, represents service, and when Virgo is fully engaged in serving -- using their highest skills and potentials -- there is nothing sexier! We’ll have plenty of opportunity to witness this pleasing side of Virgo because Venus, the planet of romance and beauty, will be in the sign of Virgo until September 16, paving the way for an earthy season of Virgo-enhanced love.
This is the perfect time to gain clarity around love and relationships. Like the grain featured in the Virgo symbol, it’s time to separate the wheat from the chaff. Explore what you really need from your partner -- and what you have to give. Let go of unhealthy patterns that may be holding you back in love.
Since Virgo rules the digestive organs, now is the time to recognize the things in your life that are valuable and nourishing, and those that are toxic and unnecessary. Eliminate emotional build-up, destructive relationships and other negative influences.
Add to this the energy of Sunday’s new Moon in Virgo, which will last through tomorrow, making it clear that now is the time to clean up emotional clutter. This new Moon also makes a harmonious trine to Pluto (planet of change and transformation) and a conjunction with Venus (planet of all-things love related). Plant the seeds of new love knowing that you’ve let go of old baggage. Pluto will help you let go of the past while Venus adds sweetness to help the medicine go down.
Though love may be on the upswing during this Virgo season, lust is another story: Through September 3, Mars (planet of sex and animal magnetism) is undergoing a serious challenge from planetary taskmaster Saturn. Be sure to think things through before jumping in the sack!
