The Moon is visiting Virgo today. Virgo is about taking action in the physical world, putting one foot in front of the other, serving the self and others while maintaining a humble perspective. This is the master crafter, the one who is willing to go the distance to perfect something without losing interest or giving up. Therefore, to adopt a sense of discernment that allows one to be aware of how something could be chiseled and made into the great masterpiece. When attuned to how something could be improved, this can be a great gift as Virgo can see where to put our attention and effort. This knowledge if taken out of balance can lead to feelings of inadequacy and worry that nothing will ever be quite right. As a mental sign ruled by Mercury, the lesson is to ground oneself in the physical arena, and produce something tangible without getting stagnant and overwhelmed by all the possible outcomes and ways of approaching a task. As the Moon is confronted by Chiron in Pisces, there is a focus on healing. To apply the principles of Virgo to healing, we can be humble with ourselves knowing that we are works in progress. If we can choose to take little steps that bring us toward our own perfection, we can start to embrace the wound and see it as an opportunity for growth. Committing to daily attention and the willingness to serve for the greater good brings peace to Virgo.
Pluto wants to help out in any way he can as he also is working on the physical plane in Capricorn. He is confronting Venus in Cancer which is bringing to light what we value and desire in the world from our feelings. How can we honor our emotions and build our empire? What great work would be aligned with what our heart values?
Mars transition into Scorpio recently has put some force behind our convictions. Transitioning from compromising Libra to intense Scorpio has given our will some guts. Armed with a sense of conviction and passion, our will to carry out our goals and make decisions has improved. As the Sun in Leo and Jupiter are blindsiding Mars, we may have some conflict over wanting to play, create and express ourselves enthusiastically and the push to take it one step deeper. As Leo can have the naiveté of a child, Scorpio wants to keep it real. Much of this is connection is fiery so there will be no shortage of heat and intuitive bursts. The lesson is to remain playful and open to one's creative gifts while also being ready to slay the dragon should it cross your path. Some shadows may come to light and if we can hold the childlike optimistic flashlight and forge forward, we may just get to where we want to go.
