Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Your ruling planet is Mercury.
This is a time of communication steps and re-steps, Virgo. Verbal interchange is so important to you, always, as a way of uniting your vision with your community. The danger is that you may give over your own principle of organization to the opinions you so love to hear. Now, with the powerful energies of this monthly cycle, you are looking beneath the surface of your interactions and finding surprises. You may discover something of great import for your own unique approach to life, the hidden pearl in the oyster that you didn't even know that you were about to open.
As the month begins, your focus is fully on getting your point across. You may be feeling somewhat stuck in this area, as your ruler Mercury retrogrades through your third sector in combination with Saturn, although you could also be feeling a balancing portion of optimism and excitement. There is tremendous focus as well as limitation and intensity in this area of your communication with others around you over the first few weeks of the current month. At the time of the Full Moon, taking place on the first Sunday, November 5th, you are coming to a better understanding of your situation, and seeking to broaden your participation in life changes. You are aiming for a powerful metamorphosis in your life over the next few weeks, and it is one of transcending existing values and security needs, including your housing or home environment, in favor of a more expansive vision of your possibilities. This massive restructuring that is already underway doesn't have to be a gloomy one, since even working through these at times quite difficult issues can be cause for elation. With the Last Quarter Moon of Sunday, November 12th, you are reaching for a more definite solution. You may find at this time exactly what does and does not work for you in terms of the process you are currently engaged in. Mercury turns to direct motion at the end of the week, on Friday, November 17th, and there are likely to be surprising and even startling ramifications. You are finding new ways to relate to your peers, perhaps catalyzed by sudden events, and also feeling the pressures and even the burden of your former self closing in on you. It is better at this time not to make a dramatic break with the past, but to instead seek to integrate new core level wisdom. The late Scorpio New Moon that comes along on Monday, November 20th, represents a fresh start in your outreach to others and in your understanding of your deep inner self also.
