September 7: The Sun squares Jupiter
The Virgo Sun is focused on self-improvement and maintains a practical approach to life. Jupiter in Gemini, meanwhile, loves to learn, chat and socialize, and is fascinated by anything and everything. This square shows that the current social climate, represented by Jupiter, is out of tune with no-nonsense Virgo. How do you get others to pay attention to you when it seems like all anyone ever notices is dramatic news, fun gadgets or salacious gossip?
