What a build-up, no? Im almost grateful its finally here! *cue horrible fake French Accent* The Virgo, she can be a dramatic bitch, no? What a week! Well, we survived it, at the least, and now its comes time to press on.
We're almost done with Virgo season, and you can feel it in the air (no, really- Its starting to get freaking COLD. No me gusta, Its enough to make a guy run to Arizona or something.) and you guys know whats coming next: Libra. Ohyes!
But lets not get ahead of ourselves: Virrrrrrrrrrrgo is the topic du jour, and you are not going to want to miss this one, Ladies and Gentlemen. This time around, the key is Surrender. Thats right, you heard me- Give it up. To pull this off (and to figure out what the hell Im yammering on about) we turn to Virgo's opposite sign, the mysterious and misunderstood Pisces.
Ya see, Pisces is magic. Seriously. But the thing is, the magic doesn't work if you push it or try. This time, you have to trust that not everything is under your control right now, and allow for the universe to take over. Quit pouring your time and effort into what isnt working anymore, and where you are making no gains. Focus on something else, and let it go in the background. And thats about all I can say without going into woo-woo territory.
Now without further ado...
The Sun and Moon- Well, no chance for a uneventful Moon here! Starting out, we have heavy hitters like Sedna, Eris, Varuna, Salacia and Quaoar all in play. Something is off or missing, you're not sure what it is because you're not meant to yet and don't have all the information, but you need to keep moving and working on your personal awesome, because the path that you are on will take you further than you ever imagined. You just have to go one step at a time. A conjunction to Siwa and Persephone indicates that you are going to need to dig deep and clear out your personal crap if you want to make any progress here. Ignore distractions. A square to Vesta tells you that if you give up now, you will regret it. Stick with it and dont focus on the results (or lack thereof).
Mercury- Almost done in Virgo, and ready to head into Libra, communication becomes key in partnerships. Where things felt stale and dead before, new life gets breathed into the romantic scene. A sextile to Juno confirms this, cue the cavalcade of Zombie Exes from Beyond the Grave. If things are left unsaid or unfinished, this will make it a little easier to wrap them up. A square to Ceres shows that you are focused more on your own needs than the needs of those around you, make sure to take others into consideration. A square to Varuna warns you that those you are pulling for might have hidden motivations of their own, however... A conjunction to Makemake instills a fierce drive to win, and this may blind you to potential traps, but can easily propel you towards achieving your goals. A trine to Admetos helps you here as well, helping you seemingly make magic with what you can accomplish. A square to Thereus can trip you up, however. Control yourself, and keep your wild side in check.
Venus- Our girl is still in Leo, and looking fabulous. A trine to Uranus tells you that anything can happen, and at anytime, so always look the part. Seriously, dressing to impress will not steer you wrong right now. A square to Deucalion can indicate some false starts, however. Dont let them get you down or slow your momentum. A sextile to Psyche shows that in Relationships, its very easy to express how you really feel right now, and it wont fall on deaf ears. What you put out, you will recieve back in kind. A square to Ceto tells you that when you see something you really want, dont be afraid to get it. Just be sure that its really something you want and not just a whim. A sextile to Atropos tells you that something is over. Seriously, finally over. Grieve and move forward.
Mars- About halfway through Scorpio, our boy is still tearing it up. Dont get in his way. A quincunx to Jupiter and Pelion tells us that there is still a long way to go on the path, and a fair amount of courage is going to be needed. Adjust your expectations, and cut away attachments. A conjunction to Huya tells you that it is most definitely worth it to keep going, no matter how hard it gets. Like you guys would even be tempted, pffft! A trine to Borasisi tells you that it helps your case to be a little inaccessible, and a small amount of misdirection for the sake of those around you may be key to your success.
Jupiter- Almost retrograde (but not stationary yet, I dont think...), Jupiter is about to make a big entrance. Places, everyone! An opposition to Pholus could show a small issue spiraling out of control with disastrous consequences. A conjunction to Chaos... aw hell, thats not going to go well! Focus on the best possible outcome, but know it can go to shit at any time. A trine to Arachne demands that you keep things simple and easy, or else. Do not weave a web right now, or you WILL get tangled up in it.
Saturn- Its so close that you can taste it guys. A little more than two weeks, and Saturn is in Scorpio! Are you ready? A conjunction to Apollon has a last-minute flurry of activity, trying to get all the I's dotted and gimps fed. A trine to Ceres and Heracles helps you stay on task and keep the goal in mind at all times. That square to Varuna keeps grating on your subconcious however, a little voice warning you that something is off, something you cant quite put your finger on...
Uranus- Well, we're ramping up for another hit of the exact square between Uranus and Pluto, and boy it is not even close to being hidden. Turn on the news and see for yourself. Just wait until it actually hits, what you see now is just prelude. An opposition to Typhon doesn't help either of them, but kicks up sand in everyone's faces so no one can see who's doing the hitting (Hint- Its Typhon) A sextile to Altjira shows that you are over the entire situation and just want to stay home and live your safe, sane life. Tough. This isnt over, not by a long shot. This is the new normal. Start getting involved or stay out of the way of those who are. And covering all my TNO bases, a sextile to Phaethon tells us this pass is going to be BIG.
Neptune- A square to Asbolus and to Eros indicates your judgement is clouded where romantic interest is concerned. Take an extra minute to think before acting and make sure your choices will take you where you want to go. An opposition to Hera and Orpheus tell you to guard your loved ones carefully, because they may have motives that are less than helpful to your aims. A sextile to Ophelia confirms this, and warns against your own dramatic and martyristic tendencies, or what could be construed as such.
Pluto- Well, Stormy's getting ready to turn direct and upstage Jupiter and Saturn. Cue catfight of epic proportions. Trust me, he has not yet begun to fight. Til then, he's getting ready with Chiron, who will train you to overcome your own self-doubts by facing up to what it is that scares you. Its probably something you want really badly, but have convinced yourself that you dont deserve (Hint- You do deserve it, actually). A sextile to Teharonhiawako is teasing you with tiny little tastes of what you could have, if you only dare to take it. Show that smug bastard that you aren't afraid to do what it takes.
All in all, get ready for some rough seas. They're not here yet, but definitely on the horizon. Use this time to prepare. Do the tough work now, so that you have a base to build on when the penny drops.
And as always, Stay Awesome. You're stone-cold brilliant, you are. I swear, you really are, but you could be so much more. Trust the process, trust yourself.
