Virgo [August 22nd to September 21st]
Many Virgos I know have ambivalent feelings about this “call to service” that’s always associated with their sign. It’s true that many of the ones I know and counsel are involved in positions or activities that have them serving people or somehow actively seeking “to make the world a better place for you and for me.” (Of course, I had to quote Virgo Michael Jackson as he often attempted to live by that noble Virgo code too.) However, with this Pisces new moon kicking off the week, I hope you embrace this as a chance to renew your sense of service through your work and not become its slave. You know you’re on the “slave” side if you think about your service being your only choice before it’s your greatest joy. Time to tip things the other way. Give some attention to what makes you happy, in general, and then what does the same with the service you give.
