The Sun enters Virgo on Aug 23rd at 6:01 AM EDT. The focus is on improvement, details and service. This is the season where you’re compelled to look at what’s wrong/missing and how that could be improved. But it’s also easy to remain stuck on what’s broken and ignore how it might be upgraded.
Virgo is the sign of service. This means (ideally) helping others without allowing yourself to become a slave/servant. Or, accepting help because you realize that someone has a more effective solution. “Service” is a difficult issue for many- some see it as a shameful thing and they look down on those who serve them (cashiers, waiters/waitresses, etc.) How you treat those who serve you says everything about the type of person you are. Others try to force their help on those who cannot be helped. It’s important to know when someone doesn’t want your assistance.
At its best, Virgo elevates mundane tasks - pride is taken in the precision of the work. The work becomes a thing of beauty that cuts through time and space like a laser, delivering exactly what’s needed at the perfect time. Details are elevated to something transcendent and the complexity of the thing that’s been built takes your breath away. Virgo specifics are the path to elevation and transcendence - God really is in the details. What you overlook can tear you down. What you focus on can raise you up.
Virgo is also about purity - focusing on the one issue and the best use of energy. Focusing on what’s healthiest. Virgo is self-contained, which applies to the concept of virginity. Sexual energy is not repressed. Instead, it’s reserved. Consider the difference. Do you waste your energy on those who don’t appreciate you? Or do you reserve yourself for those who understand your value?
Be selective and see what happens.
