Sun Enters Virgo 2016
Window: August 22 – September 21
Exact: August 22 ~ 12:39 p.m. Eastern
From the expansive fire sign of Leo, the sun now moves into the hard-working and detailed-focused earth energy of Virgo. If there is a time each year to take care of the details of getting organized, creating new systems, or getting a routine going, this is it. Virgo loves order so the more you can handle completions and getting things around you in order, the better. The sun will support your actions for these types of activities during this window.
As the archetype of the priestess and priest, Virgo loves connecting to the sacred by honoring the seasons and cycles of the natural world. This would make a wonderful time to plan a ceremony for a life passage, the next turn of the Wheel of the Year, or simply because you want a deeper connection to the sacred in any area of your life.
Another key component of Virgo is being of service. If you’ve considered helping a charity or non-profit, this would be a good time to set that in motion by offering your assistance.
The physical world holds the relationship to your finances. Three times a year, when the sun or new moon are in Earth signs, it is extremely helpful and important to focus on taking solid steps toward your financial goals. This quarterly energy of anchoring helps you stabilize and support the other elements so they all work together effectively throughout the year toward your prosperity. Virgo loves saving money through detailed price comparison and coupon clipping. It works hard toward managing a budget and staying organized with its economic flow. Allow this sign to carefully support your financial goals this month.
Choose the one or two ideas you need most to work with, then focus on those. Intentions function best when there are only one or two to concentrate on in any cycle.
