Virgo/Virgo Rising* (Aug 22-Sept 22): Still feel as if you're walking 10 paces behind yourself, and wearing a burka? Well, that's because you are. Not to pile on, but one of your guardians, Mercury, won't begin to cover new ground until September 9. Allow for the slow and arduous process of going through motions. This faux 'action' acts as a cover screen so you can delineate which recently made decisions were necessary and which were capricious. Take some time off from being everyone's servant to serve your Self. The Big 'S' Self represents the part of your being that has the larger purpose for your life. Hell, Virgo, you can plan anything with an exceptional command of the devilish details, but assessing the purpose of your life? That is one heaping grits of a challenge. A slow mind does not necessarily mean a defective one. And purposeful action, however far off script, triumphs over playing a role in which you have too many lingering doubts of your authenticity.
Libra/Libra Rising* (Sep 23-Oct 22): It is not as if you are all dressed up with no place to go. It is more like you don't like what you have chosen to wear. Or you don't feel as if you are wearing clothing that is age appropriate. It is time to contemplate the meaning of clothing in your life. Back in the days of acceptable female repression, clothing was one of the only ways a woman could express herself. Today's symbolic use of attire has to deal with your transformation of wanting to be real versus fake. You do realize you can easily be the sign of "when in Rome, do as the Romans do" or "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas"? Trust your innermost self to know when it is recommended to go along to get along and when it is time to take a stand. Know when to end any and all repression!
Scorpio/Scorpio Rising* (Oct 23-Nov 21): Similar to Gemini, you have a need to integrate your masculine and feminine energies, yang and yin, respectively. Different from Gemini, though, this happens on the amorphous feeling plane, not the intellectual one. You are to sense when to be open and nurturing or focused and self-directed. At certain points in your life, thought does not work. Excessive thinking for you places you in the area where the one gets sacrificed for the 1000. Too much idealism and rationalization leaves you like a dust particle awaiting to be picked up by a broom. While firecracker Mars moves through compatible water sign of Cancer, it would behoove you to act on your more receptive impulses. To utilize your urge to merge nets more than a willful one trick pony act. Continues in Gemini.
Sagittarius/Sagittarius Rising* (Nov 22-Dec 19): Your guardian angel, Jupiter, went retrograde a couple of days ago in Taurus. Taurus, while enticing and beautiful to you, is not the most compatible sign to you. You are full of high flying fire and free spirited. Taurus is the bird in the hand; they are usually looking for the birds in the bush. Where you do work is amassing pleasurable experiences. Jupiter moves again on Christmas, so I'd suggest deciding now what kind of payoff holiday fun. Rarely do you shy away from thinking about winning the future on your own terms. Realign your lower and smaller minded desires to what would satisfy more inclusive and all encompassing aims. These next four months will be good to you. See the majestic spirit in everything and everyone around. Through keeping it simple, you become sublime.
