The Sun in the practical, rational, down-to-earth sign of Virgo is generating the energy this week. Fixing what doesn’t work, healing, improving, getting healthier, and working organize what’s disorganized is the theme.
The Week begins with Mars (action) supporting the North Node in Gemini. We might feel more confident taking some practical steps in a new, more adventurous, but promising direction.
On Thursday Venus in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces. Intuition, dreams, guidance, and unconditional love supports sensitive relationships – possibly within the family or relationships from the past. Beautification of the home is advanced. What you value most may be quietly supported and reinforced.
On Saturday Mercury in Virgo trines Jupiter in Capricorn. Logic, rationality, and practical answers are likely to promote success and fuel optimism. What you’re offering may be innovative – a more effective/efficient way of doing things, an enlightened method with expansive possibilities.
On Sunday Mercury in Virgo opposes Neptune 19 Pisces. Rational thought might go “out the window” in favor of wishful thinking or something delusional. It’s easy to lace the truth with lies and present what you’re selling as valid or valuable. On the other hand creative practical solutions that promote love and kindness might have added value and interest for the collective.
On Sunday Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto retrograding in Capricorn. This looks like a relationship struggle rooted in the past and/or beneath the surface of consciousness. It can be hard to pinpoint the actual limitation, restriction, or point of contention. But this could feel intense – like betrayal feels intense. Choices might be interpreted as the difference between surviving vs. not surviving. That may be real for some. But it also could be imagined. Exploiting vulnerabilities could be chosen as the path to success. Or it may have been in the past. The mistrust may linger and affect your current decisions.
On Monday Monday Aug 31st, the Sun in Virgo inconjuncts Chiron in the sign of Aries. An awkward alignment between courage and vulnerability (or pain) is in play. Adjustments involve taking the kind of action that may be hard for you to take. Pushing through could be painful but the “retreat” strategy is a return to square one.
On Tuesday Sep. 1st Mercury in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn. It’s possible to assert your power in a focused, disciplined way -to simplify, clean-up, get to the point, or enliven a presentation or original idea. Something more vibrant and reflective of the progress you’ve made involves focus, leadership, a sense of authority, and following time-tested rules.

ARIES (March 21-April 21)
You might feel “reined-in” or pressured into taking some action that’s difficult for you to take. Action could require more risk and possibly the initiation of something new and unprecedented for you. The stakes may feel high but the potential reward may be worth following your instincts. Nurturing a new foundation or home base can feel intuitively guided. Rational/practical solutions, improvements and updates may entail something innovative and timely. An opportunity could feel right from many different perspectives. On Sunday it’s easy to misinterpret “the signals.” Check with another to be sure you’re not drifting off into something delusional – or being overwhelmed by memories related to old abuse or a hurtful (exploitative) decision. Pluto’s relentless drive for success can stand in opposition to a kind/loving/just and fair result. Moderation, negotiation, beautification, and caring for the home and family clarifies something deeply satisfying and genuine. An old source of vulnerability related to work/health routines requires a practical (awkward) adjustment related to courage and initiating something new. By next Tuesday a “message” is received that signals forward movement and professional progress.
TAURUS (April 21-May 21)
Venus is poised to challenge relentless, compulsive Pluto. Fear is exaggerated. Beliefs, differing philosophies of life, restrictions, or a failure to compromise complicates the need to decide or to break through an intractable stalemate. A loving relationship – money, values, or priorities may be involved. The direction of your future may be hanging in the balance. What you have to communicate (the truth) may be hurtful. You may be pressured into taking action that is hard for you to take. Courage and determination may be required. Decisions could relate to an insistence on tolerance, expansion, optimism, or “rising above” what could feel pessimistic and confining. Uranus in your 1st house signals the need for a clean break from what you can and can’t say or from your need to soften the message. It may be time to take a deep breath and say what you have to say. Writing a heart-felt, intuitively guided, but crystal clear letter with the intention of improving things could be a practical option. Pluto turns direct at the end of the week. A message is received that signals forward movement or a breakthrough. It’s time for an expansive upgrade or improvement that entails a deep personal transformation or healing agreement.
This week the Sun in Virgo energizes Mercury in your 4th house of home, family, roots, and the past. The Sun illuminates, clarifies, clarifies, and energizes practical solutions and results. New insights allow you to interpret the world from a new and different perspective. What used to seem upright and normal might now seems upside down or reversed. But something serene and accepting could take hold – possibly the result of some internal assurance that the foundation you’ve creatively and thoughtfully built will support what you intended it to support. To the extent you’ve found a way to integrate intuitive guidance, you can relax and enjoy viewing the world from a more interesting or innovative perspective. Mars and Saturn create an internal struggle. You’re instinctively driven to act courageously for the sake of the community but this could involve the kind of exposure or responsibility you might not want. Making yourself stronger between now and Jan 13th of next year is likely. A promising direction for you might be acting on some of the creative ideas you’ll be generating this week – possibly involving learning, communicating, or home-schooling.
Tomorrow Venus in Cancer trines Neptune in your 9th house of expansion – rising above the fray, elevating your knowledge, and expanding your beliefs. Teaching is supported by intuitive connections, invisible guidance, and something unusually “high-level” in terms of the telepathic transference of love, kindness, and knowledge. Surrender to the moment and the energy could be complicated by some old resistance to releasing control in exchange for believing in yourself or having faith in “the process.” Still a beautiful, serene, self-assured approach to life comes more easily this week despite relationship relationship restrictions or frustrations involving a lack of progress. In retrospect the “pandemic pause” might be seen as a fortunate game-changer. Commitments to home, family, or a partner can trigger the need for a deeper, personal investigation into something internally limiting or compulsively-driven. This week you might feel motivated to take some risk related to your career/life direction. But something might hold you back. Saturn and Mars are conspiring to make you stronger by Jan. 13th of next year. By the end of the week you sense progress – the result of something (internally) limiting you’ve managed to defuse.
LEO (July 21-Aug 21)
This week the Sun in Virgo forms an awkward angle to to Chiron in Aries. There are uncomfortable adjustments that need to be made related to money and your future. An area of vulnerability is triggered. A lack of clarity, connection, or communication puts you at a (financial) disadvantage. The issue might relate to future work or what you need to accomplish to be able to manifest your vision for the future. The Sun opposes Ceres. The result of what you’ve been cultivating, nurturing, or carefully tending to may feel disappointing. Still you may be inspired. passionate and proud of your ability to reach for something that may be just beyond your reach. There’s lots of promise related to community or group involvement and how the skills and talents you’ve developed over time seem to “meet the moment” in a variety of ways. Venus, the planet of negotiation, diplomacy, relationships, and good fortune is resting quietly behind the scenes in your invisible 12th house. It might be time to take a “restorative break” in preparation for a fortunate new beginning on September 7th. Something of value that hasn’t been able to materialize might. It’s likely you’ll be in a position to powerfully attract useful resources, connections, and wealth more effectively after Sept. 7th.
VIRGO (August 21-Sep 21)
There’s some new insight this week related to what you love, value, are currently pursuing – and what will ultimately bring more joy into your life. Something simpler may be considered. The Sun opposing Ceres illuminates a parental (mother/child) relationship. Balance may be any issue. An opportunity to bring things into balance – to negotiate, compromise, or surrender to what is, is highlighted. A resolution, result or end-point could materialize. A blind spot tends to distorts your internal compass leading you in a direction you might not want to go. It can be fairly easy this week to get sucked into something delusional or irrational. Logic and practical, innovative solutions infuse a new level of optimism into the mix. A course correction is possible. The Sun in your 1st house marks a new beginning related to service, practicality, efficiency and possibly a new role within the realm of relationships. Some disruption to the routine of an established financial partnership may be in play. What you’re instinctively driven to do is resisted. You might know what you want but fear holds you back. Still initiating something new and taking a risk gives you more information about the nature of your limitations creatively and within the realm of love.
LIBRA (September 21 – October 21)
Allowing yourself to be intuitively guided with the kinds of methods your choosing – the remedies you apply, or solutions you enact can advance and support the kind of success you’d most like to manifest. Letting go of some of the control you might insist upon and relaxing into a state of believing in yourself and a higher process seems wise. It might be a leap but you might be “up to it” this week. It’s not that you’ll become untethered, ignore the facts, or neglect what continues to be useful, practical, or “tried and true.” As long as you continue to keep an eye on the foundation you’ve built, overhaul it once in awhile, tweak it regularly, and apply some brutal honesty when inspecting it for “cracks” your professional life is likely to be infused with good fortune. The universe is conspiring to make you stronger – a stronger force to be reckoned with through some internal struggle you might be dealing with. Instinctively you may know what you want within the realm of relationships but be unable to attain it before looking within for the limitations and restrictions (fear) that holds you back. Now is not the time to play it safe if you want to develop the strength you need to progress in a forward direction. Between now and Jan. 13th 2020 is a good time to challenge yourself to take more risk. Old restrictions related to home and family may be defused by Dec. 18th.
There’s an internal struggle or challenge taking shape – nothing new for a Scorpio. You might feel overwhelmed by the amount of responsibility you have to keep everything afloat and in “working order.” Despite your best efforts you might feel like you’re
not addressing or accomplishing anything very effectively. It might be time to take more risk. That may involve disconnecting for awhile to relax and restore your energy – or to put a different light on the situation. Caring for everything you have to care for is not possible if you’re in a debilitated/burnt-out/stressed-out state. Your relationship with yourself and your future may require corrections that entail something more balanced and sustainable. A clarification of your personal values and priorities for the future might give you the permission you need to stop, rest, and restore what’s depleted. You’re most promising direction involves something intensely demanding in terms of managing your resources and talents wisely while keeping it honest, continually vibrant, and honest. It might be time to get away to a place in nature that never fails to heal and revive you.
SAGITTARIUS (November 21- December 21)
Venus in your 8th house may be allowing you to finally relax after a period of anxiety, uncertainty, and avoidance of any pressure that would push you in a new direction. You may have been uncertain, confused or afraid of changing what has worked for you in the past. But it seems you have worked through some intense anxiety and “roadblocks” that stalled you in your tracks or made you feel that you couldn’t face what needed to be faced. Avoiding and evading may have undermined your confidence. But Uranus in your 6th house might have broken the spell or provided a deadline date – encouraging you to take some practical action that would allow you to focus on doing what you love most. Your passion may lie in an area involving travel, expansion, publishing, higher eduction, legalities, or an enlightened philosophy of life. (Somehow what you aspire to may be awkwardly aligned with parenting or care-giving responsibilities.) Between now and Jan 13th of 2021 you will become much stronger and maybe more influential as you trust your instincts and take more risk. If you have any doubts about the new ideas you’re attempting to integrate continue keeping it practical, useful, and service-oriented using methods that transcend the ordinary.
CAPRICORN (December 21-January 21)
Currently there may be a source of conflict in your life that you’re trying to put behind you. Something you worked very hard to make happen – negotiated, compromised, or made your best effort to be fair, reasonable, and sincere – has been a disappointment. You may be second guessing yourself, trying to move on, or wondering if this stroke of “bad luck” will continue indefinitely. This is an internal struggle. You want to take action but past experience might tell you that would be counterproductive. Venus opposing Jupiter in your 1st house tells you you’re at a culmination point when the results are in, things have reached a point of balance, or it’s time to end the project and move on. It’s important to make sure you’re learning the right lessons. Stabilizing yourself at deeper levels through determination and a disciplined focused effort might be the point. A difficult experience might be preparing you for something bigger that will require a rock solid inner foundation. Between now and Jan. 13th of 2021 your inner strength will improve as a result being willing to do (on a consistent basis) what’s hard for you to do. Practice moving on and keep going.
AQUARIUS (January 21-February 21)
The issue for you now may relate to something invisible (something of which you are not aware) blocking the effectiveness of your actions. You may instinctively feel the desire to integrate the ideas you have that might make the kind of impact you want to make. But something is holding you back – fear, a lack of confidence, or the inability to think of yourself as an authority worth paying attention to. This may be old stuff you accumulated in the early 1990’s and it may “take care of itself” when Saturn moves into the sign of Aquarius on December 18, 2020. For Aquarians a new era of confident leadership begins then. In the meantime it seems important to walk away from something that doesn’t provide the kind of satisfaction and enjoyment you were led to believe it would. This may involve disengaging from some old beliefs about the irrelevance of ancient wisdom or some doubt about the value of harnessing the invisible/magical world to assist you in changing the world or your community for the better. It’s worth reconsidering your beliefs about group involvement and your ability to make a difference doing what you love to do.
PISCES (February 21-March 21)
Venus in your 5th house of love, creativity and joy supports the release of something that has become part of your general style and approach to life. It may involve grief, a devastating loss, or a painful past experience that’s hard to recover from. Something pessimistic or self-defeating might discourage you from taking creative risks – or risks in love. But Venus – the gift-giver – is handing you an opportunity to move beyond your current framework into the realm of something more hopeful and joy-filled. Difficult parent/child relationships, parental pain, or memories of something old and abusive might come back to haunt you. The Sun in practical Virgo encourages you to think rationally about changing your approach. Taking practical action on a daily basis to move beyond the past could be very effective. It appears there’s something fortunate and and expansive happening in the community (or within groups) that would benefit from your artistic know-how and wisdom. It requires belief in your power to change yourself or a cause that transcends yourself.
