Virgo (August 22nd to September 21st)

Last week was all about that Mars-Pluto hook-up that mirrored a push to get your endorphins surging.  This week is about finding an equilibrium or stasis to keep you from veering into overdrive.  So you may find it best to oscillate your “high-powered” days with shifting to lower gears.  This weekend with a special Sun-Mars-Venus line-up—the first the 3 have been together in Aries in 32 years—may be a good time to shift gears and sharpen how you want your desires to pan out.  Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase, “Begin with the end in mind.” Well, it’s time to detail what that end looks like, whether it’s your kitchen remodeling project or how you’re remodeling your body.  The key is stoking the desire without getting fanatical or overly attached to the outcome—think more what you “would like” rather than what “it has to be”!
