It's Virgo Season!!!! Happy Birthday to all of the Virgo’s out there! My own mother is a Virgo, so you could say I am pretty much an expert when it comes to understanding your needs….ha!
These last few weeks in California have been rough. My heart is broken for all of the fires here and have been constantly on edge that one is going to happen here in Yucca Valley/Joshua Tree. The reality of climate change is hitting us smack dab in the face, and I am just so saddened that we are living in a world where our leaders refuse to do things that protect the earth. Virgo is the perfect sign for us to begin taking our roles in society seriously when it comes to the environment and being stewards of her.
Virgo is the mutable earth sign in the zodiac ruling the 6th house of routine, service, and health. Virgo is ruled by the planet Mercury and is known for having an eye for detail, and a brain for problem solving. Virgo is hyper focused on routine, organization, and seeing the bigger picture. Virgo people can sometimes obsess over the details, and benefit from stepping away and surrendering to what they can’t control. While Virgo tends to always focus on the well being of others, it can forget sometimes to prioritize themselves. Virgo’s are known for being a bit overly judgmental and critical of others, but only because they have such high standards for themselves.
Ceres the goddess of the harvest, is often associated with Virgo. Ceres the Planetoid is also a known ruler of Virgo as well, and often represents our relationship with our mothers in our birth charts, in succession with the Moon. We also see in Ceres how we nurture ourselves and others, a quality of Virgo that is sometimes forgotten.
If you want to make the Virgo in your life happy here are a few basic guidelines you can follow:
Don’t interfere with their need to schedule things!
Be on time….nothing worse than making a Virgo wait!
Clean up after yourself...Virgos hate clutter, and look down upon those they have to clean up after, but because they’re a service oriented sign they will do all of the dirty work, while still judging you silently!
Caring about others and the environment! Virgo finds comfort in being of service to others and enjoys surrounding themselves with others who feel the same.
Detail oriented planning and communication…..Virgo needs to mitigate risk by weighing out options and scenarios, it gives them a sense of comfort when they feel they have picked the best option before moving forward. Please your Virgo friends by seeing this as a strength, even though it may take a little longer to get things going.
Physical exercise and work out dates, Virgo’s love to stick to a health regiment and benefit from social activities that get their bodies moving.
This week is another jam packed week of transits. Monday we hit the day off with Mercury making an inconjunct to Chiron in Aries, and Mars in Aries making a square to Saturn in Capricorn. Tuesday we have our First Quarter Moon in Sagittarius, while Mercury in Virgo makes a trine to Uranus in Taurus, with Venus in Cancer in opposition to Jupiter in Capricorn. Thursday Venus in Cancer makes a trine to Neptune in Pisces. Saturday Mercury in Virgo makes a trine to Jupiter in Capricorn, and last but not least, Sunday we have two oppositions. One between Venus and Pluto and the other between Mercury and Neptune.
It will be a roller coaster week. We may feel frustrated and driven one day, while the next filled with optimism and motivation to plan for the future. Take any boost in energy to chip away at those goals you are setting while also working in some down time for fun and rejuvenation. There is a lot of potential for things to not go the way we were planning, but a bigger vision, and better plan could unfold out of the surprising turn of events. 2020 is a hard year to plan for, so we benefit in finding ways to find opportunities in the midst of the chaos.

The Emperor, The Hermit, The Chariot, The World, Judgement, 7 of pentacles, 8 of pentacles, 9 of pentacles, Knight of Pentacles, Ace of Cups, 2 of Cups, 3 of Cups, 4 of Cups, 5 of Cups, 6 of Cups, 7 of Cups, 8 of Cups, 9 of Cups, Queen of Cups, Page of Cups, Knight of Cups, Ace of Wands, 2 of Wands, 3 of Wands.

We start the day off healing wounds around how we communicate who we are! Mercury our planet of communication, makes a hard aspect to Chiron, our wounded healer. Mercury is strong in Virgo, and enables us to see the bigger picture. We are able to problem solve efficiently when it comes to how we are viewing problems in relation to identity and sense of self. We benefit from taking this energy to be humble about where we could improve our perceptions of self, and how we build our lives. It is easy to feel victimized by outside circumstances. It is harder to take responsibility for where we can do our part. Find a way to assess in your life where you can take responsibility for your own actions.
With Mars making a hard aspect to Saturn today as well, we may have a hard time bumping up against things out of our control. We may be trying to take action in our lives, but finding roadblock after roadblock...a common theme for the year. This is not the best day for making any huge or major life decisions. This is a good day to assess and strategize where we can make plans that are realistic for what we can and can't control right now.

Today is a powerful day of transits. Our First Quarter Moon in Sagittarius mixed with Mercury making a trine to Uranus gives us an energy in line with an urge or need to break free from structures in place that feel counterintuitive to our growth. With Venus in opposition to Jupiter we benefit from assessing what our personal values are and whether or not we are in line with them. We could feel goal oriented today, and if we are currently in a relationship we could care a lot about the goals or dreams we share with our partner.
We could also receive some unexpected news in the days ahead, this is not a year short of surprises, we may encounter a few more this week.

Communication may be challenging today and we could have a hard time feeling grounded. It is wise that we move slowly and avoid taking any risks. Find a way to embrace the flow of the day rather than trying to control things too much. Moon in Sagittarius could have us needing to break up our routine with some spontaneity and fun. Find a way to tap into some light hearted energy, no need to be so serious all he time...pandemic and all.

With the Moon in Capricorn today we benefit from taking action on any responsibilities or tasks we have at hand. The next couple days are good for productivity when it comes to mundane tasks.
Venus in Cancer makes a trine to Neptune in Pisces and could have us feeling confusion around what we need or want when it comes to our relationship with others. It could be hard for us to differentiate ourselves from the collective. We could feel extra empathetic or sensitive over the next couple days. We also may miss family or loved ones more than usual. Schedule a phone call with someone whom you share a deep connection with. This is a good day for self care and connecting with loved ones or family members any way that we can.

Finding joy in the little things is more crucial than ever. It is also positive for us to embrace the things in our lives that ground us and build a sense of normalcy.

Today we have two major oppositions. One between Venus and Pluto, and the other between Mercury and Neptune.
The overall energy of the day with both of these energies taking place is our need to integrate our dreams/visions with what is tangible and real. We may need to face the reality of what is not possible right now, or what we can’t control. But we may also need to feel empowered with what we can do in our lives right now. Oppositions are all about integration of polarity. When we live too far on either side of duality we will inevitably feel unbalanced. Ask yourself whether you feel balanced in your communication, relationships, dreams, goals, or material world. Envision yourself taking action where you can in your life towards integrating more balance within your life.
