"Plans are of little importance, but planning is essential."

-- Winston Churchill

When the Sun leaves the playful stars of Leo and into the grounded and practical terrain of Virgo on August 22, our self-expression shifts from the childlike enthusiasm to a more adult phase of planning and preparation. The time to sift through everything extraneous and inessential has come.

Virgo is famous for taking down the clutter bugs and putting chaos back into pristine working order. It's all about the daily process of refining until you get closer to the streamlined version of perfection. The critical and analytical energy of Virgo is excellent for problem solving and finding ways to make everything better and more efficient.

Virgo is also the sign of health and wellbeing, so we may find ourselves more concerned with taking care of our bodies with regular exercise and healthier diets during the next few weeks. This is the time of year to make plans, work out details and get rid of all of the junk in your head, heart and home. The sudden urge to detox and purify kicks in under Virgo's influence.

The downside to this transit is getting obsessed with work or falling into the trap of perfectionism. If you're already to prone to such problems, you may want to remind yourself to seek balance before your nervous system crashes. Amping up the coffee will only make things worse. Burnout is all too common as the frenzy of the busy Virgo Sun kicks in and everyone gets into the "back to school" or "back to business" mindset. Why not let summer linger just a little longer? There will always be piles, to-do lists and projects vying for your attention!
