Virgo Horoscope (August 23 - September 22)
Your ruling planet is Mercury.
Your personal creativity is high right now, Virgo. You are in the middle of a thorough-going transformation of self which only increases in pace as the year unfolds. This month your focus shifts to transcending previous boundaries of what you thought was possible in terms of ultimate service to your fellow beings and to the personal mission that you feel inside and have been honing lately. Mystic madness pervades your everyday activities and steers you toward the spiritual rather than the merely mundane solution. This may confuse your habitual reactions and your rational understanding of what is going on, but it makes perfect sense to your higher self which is quietly watching it all and waiting for you to continue making the right moves.
As the month begins, you are feeling your way forward into a fresh self-concept with the help of revelations that seem to come to you through the medium of partnership interaction. Of course in some sense you are yourself directly responsible for everything that happens to you even the results of encounters with significant others, or perhaps it is the universe bestowing its blessings upon you, or maybe these twin concepts are one and the same. The Last Quarter Moon of Friday, February 5th, could serve to clarify or perhaps give voice to your feelings surrounding this issue. There could be surprises and some degree of tension in the midst of what is an essentially peaceful process of incorporating the viewpoints of others into your own. You are finding that the everyday life of the mind, and of service to others, yields a rich bounty these days in terms of depth connection to the All that Is. As the sage is reported to have observed to the neophyte when asked for the secret to enlightenment, if you have eaten your rice, why then wash your bowl. It is in the ordinary that your salvation lies right now. This is even truer with the advent of the New Moon a week later, taking place on Saturday, February 13th, in this same sector of day-to-day existence, which is called the discipleship to your highest intention for yourself, going forward. You are being guided to a way of life that is more consistent with your own inner values, partly through the agency of helpful partners. You are subject at this time to a unique confluence of both partnership benefit and spiritually rich inner truth. In connecting to your core issues you also connect to higher wisdom, which might be paradoxical but is nonetheless what seems to be happening for you these days. It's not such a mystery considering that paradox is the way of the soul. As you connect more deeply to your own internal process it is possible that you might also be able to get in touch with feelings of dissatisfaction and incompleteness from past trauma. If so, it could be that these feelings, normally scary, are for the moment defused, so that you can access and embrace them. At the time of the First Quarter Moon of Sunday, February 21st, partners come more fully into the picture as a catalyst to help you get over the mountain of your own emerging destiny. Then the Full Moon at month's end represents the full flowering of the impulse for personal development that has been tugging you along into the slipstream of mutual evolution. All through this period you may find yourself dealing in some form with the remnants of past woundings. Your wounded feelings from the past are indeed like little children that have been excluded from the banquet table of acceptance for years and have been hurting, and like little children they need acceptance and love to make them less contentious and more peaceable, more easily integrated. That is the great gift of this time for you, that you might be able to integrate all your parts as you come into the grace of higher understanding and your own deep center, which are really one and the same.
