This is the ideal time to get down to business and fix the nagging, pesky problems in our lives. We have the Sun in Virgo and a Mercury retrograde in Virgo too. This Mercury retrograde has a detailed practical side as well as the deeper transformational issues I mentioned in the last post.
Getting the job done is the order of the day. We might all have just a bit more organizational skills and detailed precision for these next few weeks. As one who has no earth planets in her chart, I value the Sun in Virgo each year as a time to catch up with myself and get serious, especially after a bit of lionness summer laziness. I just fixed computer synching problems I've been having for months, found boxes of files that need to be taken care of and organized my to-do list. (You can expect a newsletter with new teleclasses, workshops, articles and interesting links from me in the next few days. If you aren't on my mailing list you can be there easily by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org with subscribe in the subject line.)
For supercharged Virgo days, mark your calendar for September 7 and 8. The Moon will be in Virgo for these two days as well as the Sun and Mercury. Just as I mark my calendar each month for Pisces Moon because I know I'll need a chocolate bar tucked away and time for the pool (or at least a bubble bath), the double Virgo days each year are my days to really get things done.
Learning how planetary energies affect us in this general way can be a real help in learning to live intuitively. If you are invited to an event and don't feel like going but don't know why, it might be resistance -- working through the resistance might result in a new experience or a fabulous time. On the other hand, it might be not a great time energetically for you to be at that type of event.
I would be completely annoyed to have to go to a party or waste time in any way with the productive energy of a Virgo Sun and Virgo Moon beaming through me. I want to be home cleaning cupboards or doing taxes. Knowing simple astrological transits and cycles can clarify and validate our personal intuition, allowing our lives to flow more effortlessly.
