Virgo (August 22nd to September 21st)

I think that “Keep Calm” meme was created for and by Virgos. I have nothing to back that up. It’s just a feeling.  Regardless, I think it’s fitting for you this week. This week you might need to create a mini-retreat, if you don’t have a real vacay already planned. Most people will be off on the 4th, but you need a little more than that.  The pleasure center of your zodiacal brain is hardwired for order and efficiency.  The difficult part about that is that everyone else’s ain’t. In fact, even other parts of yourself can’t keep orderly all of the time. If you’ve been working in tandem with another person or a set of people, you might feel little like you’re getting a crash course in the seemingly impossible art of herding cats. Stepping away this week will boost your spiritual & mental endorphins and could make herding cats at least fun.
