Lots of new things head the agenda as summer in the northern hemisphere comes to an end. School is beginning for many and the many aspects to Saturn confirm the need to calendar the many events that come quickly in fall schedules. At the end of this week on Friday August 21 the Sun in Leo finishes up with a square to Saturn, suggesting a more focused few days. As the Moon continues this connection on Saturday, we see order in the day’s events and a building to a mutual goal during the First Quarter moon at 12:31 PM Pacific time. As evening approaches, things quiet down and the Sun enters Virgo on Sunday at 3:37 am early on Sunday morning. Sunday is a good day to have some friends over for a quiet dinner to close down the week.
The Sun in Virgo stays for about four weeks and is one of the four ‘pre-cursors’ to the seasonal change points (known as cardinal points, or, Solstices and Equinoxes). Virgo in the natural zodiac has as its domain the sixth house of service, yes, service and giving something of ourselves whether it be our skills, our knowledge or sorting out those long needed corrections in equipment, in computers, in filing systems, in databases and updating and then learning the power of certain software that help improve the bottom line of our lives. Again, Virgo and the sixth house are associated with health, diet, food, and the organization of your storage units, pantries, and closets which, translated means this is a good time to get this done or at least started before Fall Equinox at the end of the month. Quick tip: If you plan to start a diet, always start it after, and not before the Full Moon. Call it good Feng Shui with Jupiter running alongside the Sun this month, you find yourself more energetic and generous and others doing the same to you.
