Tip of the Week:

Virgo time, which marks the last official month of summer, in the Northern Hemisphere, has begun. This marks a cycle of ending and transition of its own kind. With the Moon in Scorpio as the Sun enters Virgo, the coming weeks will likely prove to be emotionally turbulent. Sun, Mercury, and Mars in Virgo will provide some measure of stability as people exercise constructive critical analysis. Yet, this could prove short-lived as Mars enters Libra on August 27 where it will remain until mid-October. With Venus in Leo, this combined influence adds to the drama. The Virgo influence will contribute as more and more people focus to connect the dots regarding larger, social, and political trends and events. As modern technology supports the ambitions of globalism, it is emerging as a complex antagonist since it is not centrally located and due to the influence of power players behind the scenes, finds its expression in governments the world over, effectively producing unrest, strike, and a general and widespread state of anxiety on a global scale. Navigating this complex terrain is already and will continue to prove difficult as people’s trust and confidence are undermined. This is where Astrology can help because its archetypal focus transcends nationalities.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Discerning what you must do and how to best tackle the current challenges of your life is in the spotlight. Circumstances of late are pushing you to exercise creative, critical analysis. This is one aspect of an overall theme and impulse to work harder for the sake of working smarter.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

Bringing projects to completion implies follow-through. Paying attention to the finer details requires a more meticulous and patient approach. Fortunately, the planetary alignments appear to be in support of doing so. This is the foreground of the larger background of a rising, revolutionary, drive.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

A busy time close to home will become more apparent. Positively, you are in a productive mood, and you could achieve a lot over the coming weeks. It all comes down to the quality of your focus and how organized you are. Weaving in some measure of social and cultural pleasure could actually support your cause.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

You want answers and, to that end, you yearn for facts, information, and more knowledge in general. Your focus now transcends daily, practical concerns and takes on a bigger picture and philosophical objective. Meanwhile, rewards for past efforts, or liabilities due to a wayward focus are rolling in.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

You are in a practical and productive mood. The time has come to be more decisive. This includes a process of prioritization. You will invariably be weighing your options and targeting certain choices at the expense of others regarding larger matters than usual, daily affairs.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

Thanks to the influences of the Sun, Mercury, and Mars, your drive and focus is stronger now than it has been for some time. As you look to the future and assess what you must do to achieve both the security and the success you desire, you will become more decisive and incisive too.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

The combination of your natural flow and outer circumstances is pushing you to focus more time and energy behind the scenes. Yet, as Mars enters your sign, you will also become more assertive, especially with friends. This could amount to stronger boundaries, but could be expressed as a private party…

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Virgo time is one during which your sense of individuality and independence becomes more apparent. This trend probably began several weeks ago, however, as Mars and Mercury entered Virgo. More emphasis on health is featured. At the deeper levels, a process of personal transformation is amplified.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Yours is a sign of adventure and freedom to explore. This can occur in body, mind, and/or spirit. Yet, currently, the focus is to achieve this in your public and professional life. This implies and more practical focus. Yet, you will also push against the grain to do it your way, starting this week.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Virgo time can prove to be extra adventurous and philosophical for you. Yet, with Mercury retrograde, you could feel a little lost. Positively, this is both pushing you closer to the ones you love and could also lead you to reach out to others to get to the bottom of things.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Virgo time is one of transformation of some kind for you. This is amplified due to the contributing influences of Mercury and Mars. That Mercury is retrograde is already and will continue to deeper your research and powers of critical analysis to see through outer appearances, smoke, and mirrors…

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)               

Who do you serve and why? Answering this question well will contribute to your focus. As you get clear on your priorities you will also likely feel more decisive regarding your best approach. While you may have many projects to attend to, the time has come to direct your focus more sharply.
