Virgo (August 22nd to September 21st)
No one has to teach a spider the beauty and power of leverage. I imagine making a web is a lot of hard work at the jump; but once it’s up, if the spider has the right lo-cation, it’s a game of increasing returns. That’s how you have to think about your next array of plans beyond the winter. I know you like the hustle and bustle of main-tenance and keeping things sharp, but wouldn’t it be so much better to have a struc-ture or system in place that worked harder for you rather than you working hard all the time? So this “hibernation” time is not for you just to dawdle or even pack on the pounds, not that you’re likely to do both anyway. It’s space to breathe and work on your web.
