Virgo Horoscope (August 23 - September 22)
Your ruling planet is Mercury.
Communication outreach is your theme this month, Virgo, and thinking about how your network of connection with others around you contributes to your life plan and goal orientation. Surprising information could be coming your way from partners of one variety or another that serves to jump-start your process of reevaluating your objectives. You are aiming for a future that you can really live with, which is only a motion away. The transformation lies not so much with actual events as with your attitude toward them, as you emerge by month's end with a clearer picture of your stance, reinventing yourself through the power of family and tribal connection.
As the month begins, you are feeling your way through financial and communicative fluctuations. The tides are shifting for you with your ruler Mercury just turning to direct motion in your resources sector. With any luck you are seeing the mystical possibilities in your situation, underlying and even offsetting the material concerns of the moment. The New Moon that comes at the end of the last full week of the month, on Friday November 9th, takes you further along this cosmic path, as far as you will go. This is a time of connection to a vaster and more understated reality that is behind and beyond this mundane setting, and you may be amazed at the information. Variations in significant partnerships and idealism in service to your highest purpose for yourself provide plenty of food for thought over the next few days as Mercury enters your communication sector. You are likely to discover more about these new conceptual initiatives through sharing them with others, although it may be difficult to formulate your ideas into words in such tenuous areas. The First Quarter Moon of Saturday, November 17th, brings this subtle form of conflict to a head. It might be best not to push the river or your conversational objectives too hard at this time, with Mars also retrograde, and for the remainder of the year, in your sector of future plans. This is considered a better time to watch and wait and to refine your possibilities than to make active decisions. The Full Moon of Saturday, November 24th, during the Thanksgiving Day weekend, may bring factors of family life and career as well into the picture, along with the issues of self and other that you have been exploring lately. You are discovering these days that you are more and more like a tree, free-standing in the forest, not wholly independent of the shade and nutrition of the surrounding environment but not leaning on it very much either.
