The Sun enters Virgo today after spending 30 days in Leo. Virgo is all about making something better. There is a natural affinity to being able to see how something could be improved. There is also a real commitment with this sign to stay the course. The inspiration is the betterment of something, no matter how much daily effort is required. It is the hard-worker of the zodiac, ideally coming from a place of humility. Sometimes associated with the Servant, it is aligned with the desire to serve and improve something for the world.
Leo is about creation in itself, Virgo is about serving that creation. Virgo will refine it as necessary when the chinks appear in the armor. Saturn and Uranus have been in early Earth sign degrees so the Sun will trine both of them and be inspired by their messages. Saturn is saying, "Commit already". While Saturn is currently in retrograde, it is a little less enforceful, more reminding us of the long range goals we have set for ourselves. How we can stay to that path once it goes direct in the beginning of September?
With the influence of Uranus, Uranus is touting the importance of being present with your body. What are some of the inspirations coming from your basic embodied self? Do a body scan and see what areas of your body may be out of alignment. We all have chakras or energy centers running up and down our body. What part is weak or strong? How might you fortify the less vital sections of your body?
The Moon right next to Mars may make us feel a certain urgency to do it all and make up for lost time. Take in the messages and begin to point your arrow in the direction of where you want to go starting August 28th when Mars goes direct. Keep your cool and lean into the Grand Earth Triine that seeks to give us a sense of stability among any potential chaos.
