Sun enters Virgo 06:38 AM EDT
The quest of Virgo is to find the sacred in the mundane and to live in the gap; knowing there is none.
It is as if God played a game
immersed in contemplation;
and from this game
all worlds arose
in endless variation.
is not lovelier
than a rock,
not more glorious
than a frog.
– Angelus Silesius
In the deep mystery of things as they really are in themselves, we are released from our fixations and attachments to them.

Sun conjunct Jupiter
Here in Virgo-ville it’s about getting organized and making priorities. Even so it is up to each of us to decide whether it’s angels or devils that live in the details: are they dancing on the head of your pin or pricking you with their little pitchforks?
A little bit of effort in setting our mind to the tasks at hand could go a long way.
Mercury enters Libra
Time to think about Libra things: How we relate; the rules of engagement; what it means to really listen. Fairness, justice, and beauty which, of course, is truth.
Full Moon: 06 degrees Pisces 11:35 AM EDT
Power packed. Stirring the pot of mutable energies: Jupiter in Virgo, Saturn coming to Sagittarius, Neptune in Pisces. It’s going to be a very busy year. Look around and see what is happening in your world regarding service; whether you need it or offer it. Two sides; one coin.
Sun opposite Neptune
We dream of perfection because in our dreams, perfection is possible. In real life we are often beset with longing for things that aren’t happening and maybe aren’t going to happen. When we have a genuine longing to be present to exactly the way things are it gets a whole lot easier. Perhaps it’s a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.
Venus conjunct Mars
It’s a flame of passion. A fire in the belly, igniting love, lust, art, and desire in all its many manifestations. Fire is dangerous and compelling. Mars and Venus live for the moment; bound for glory.
Sun trine Pluto
When we are empowered we feel good. But sometimes we only feel good; we forget to do something good with our empowerment. Whatever empowers you will, by default empower the world around you if you use it.

Whatever you has been cooking since July 25th; whatever you have left behind or transformed, now is the moment to move, without doubt toward your values*. What really matters* to you creates the container for the life you actually live (not the movie that’s playing inside your head). When we have the courage to know what we value, we live in deeper harmony* with life. If what you think you want is destructive to yourself or others, there is a lie that has tied a knot in your heart. Then the only thing is to untie it.

Enthusiasm for the task is easily found. Especially when you shift your gaze from the goal to the creative fire that has brought you here in the first place.

All that glitters is definitely not gold. Dig deep into why it is that something beautiful may not be that satisfying – even if it seems that way to a lot of people.
Solar Eclipse: New Moon: 20 degrees Virgo: 02:41 AM EDT
How can i help? What can i make? What has meaning, given that nothing lasts? As we slip more deeply into Virgo themes it’s time for a shock to the system on account of some little thing: The songbird outside your window, the excessive packaging on the product. The lives lost and saved by acts of violence or kindness.
Mercury stationery retrograde
Saturn enters Sagittarius
Jupiter opposite Neptune
Sometimes it seems we cross the threshold and it’s a different life: Before and after. Sometimes we are the threshold and life just pours through us and things aren’t what they used to be. Get out of your own way. Listen and keep listening till you hear something. Don’t try to sort it out – let it sort you.
Venus trine Uranus
If you wanted more than seemed remotely possible on 1st you might be surprised and pleased by what is possible today. If you were enthusiastic on 8th you might feel that way again now. Get excited; let the fire in your heart change your world. It’s a dance and you never really know where it’s taking you or how long it will last. Today’s the day.
