Virgo Horoscope (August 23 - September 22)
Your ruling planet is Mercury.
This is a good month to make your move, Virgo. Everything lately has been building up to this moment. With the reflective period of the Mercury retrograde now past, this is an excellent time to set your intention in a fully committed manner. Life may not seem so easy right now, but you are getting the best input that the cosmos has to offer for figuring out what it is that you truly want. The first two weeks of the month are perfect for visioning future plans. Be careful what you wish for at this time because you are likely to get exactly what you focus on. You will proceed slow and steady and right on target, the more so the more you take yourself fully seriously and center yourself in your process.
As the month begins, you are focused on achievement. You are completing a phase of activity that extended over the previous five weeks and that has lead you all over the map in your search for the truth of what you are up to in this body, and at this time of your life. You are future-oriented, and with the advent of the New Moon of July 2nd you have an excellent opportunity to vision new possibilities for yourself into being. The power of intention is very available to you at this particular juncture, namely that when you set your course firmly on an idea the universe flows out to you in response in ways that are consistent with your highest aspirations for yourself. This is the information that was contained in the popular book and DVD called The Secret. You are also perhaps at this time feeling the impact of surprising activity on the part of friends and colleagues or important partners in your life. You have been meandering along some very interesting highways and byways over this last month based partly on this type of input, which has the effect of shaking you out of your established rut toward something entirely different and enlightening you, always of course to the extent that you can allow yourself to open to what you receive. All in all, it is a very different prospect that you are seeing for yourself these days than you were in the mid-May timeframe. As you get going this month with some great ideas for where your future could lead you, with Saturn also poised in your sign there are also inevitable setbacks that you will encounter. There is a long-lasting and essentially positive impact to whatever you carry forward right now, one that comes with the expenditure of an unusually high degree of effort that it is good to be aware of. Your difficulties come to a head during the First Quarter Moon of Wednesday, July 9th. At this time you might encounter the greatest obstacles in making your dream a reality, but if you keep your focus on the deeper aspects of your process you will be rewarded in the long run. The Full Moon of the following week, taking place on Friday, July 18th, signals a powerful and optimistic time for you when you will find the fullest self-expression that may be possible for you right now, and when you are more inclined to bring others into the idea of what you are about right now. The last half of the month provides an opportunity to think deeply about your current experience and to place it into a context of awareness that is consistent with your growing understanding of the universe and the place that you occupy with it.
