Virgo [August 22nd to September 21st] 

This week ends with a showdown between your patron, Mercury, and Saturn.  This is a really great aspect if you have some t’s to cross and i’s to dot over the weekend. There’s a strong measure of mental creativity and fortitude that you have now, so it’s also great for tackling things you can control or change. If not, then it’s better to use this time to get some perspective, Virgo. It could mean taking to the skies, either by visiting a really tall building or a flight to see the Earth (and your worries) small beneath you. If not, allow yourself to indulge in some whimsy and fancy, especially with visual imagery either at the movies or at a museum.  Meditation is another avenue to enjoy, if you can still your mind without the static of worry or distraction.
