Summer is starting to cool down, and we can feel the back-to-school energy that perfectly coincides with the transition of the Sun from playful Leo to studious Virgo on August 23. We want to roll up our sleeves and get the workspace organized. We want our lives running like well-oiled machines. We want to get back in touch with our rituals and daily practices. We no longer feel comfortable wasting time exclusively indulging in pleasure and leisure because we can no longer stand all of the neglected paperwork piling up.
When the Sun enters the practical terrain of Virgo, it’s time to get back into our problem-solving brains -- and clean up the joint! Efficiency is key, and we're ready for more streamlined schedules and protocols now. The Sun in Virgo represents work, and simplifying our practices. We are able to shine in the realm of purifying, simplifying and making our projects as seamless as possible now. You can easily eliminate distractions and hone in on your top priorities while the Sun tours this mutable Earth sign.
Virgo is linked with the symbol of the Hermit in Tarot cards. It represents our inner solitary pilgrim. It is the part of us that loves hunkering down and getting lost in work, projects or just a nice quiet forest. In any case, this transit is an invitation to cut out all that is superfluous and inefficient in your daily schedule and rituals. Pay more attention to health, organization and how you might be wasting or losing time and energy by not having a good plan.
