You’re like a singular comet blazing through the sky, dear Virgo–just be careful that you don’t get so carried away building momentum that you forget your very real need this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, for acclaim, attention, and opportunities to display your (probably legendary) generosity. You might think that your forward trajectory will be satisfying enough, but the reality is (as someone once purred) “it’s lonely out in spaaaace”, and you’ll feel that need for the regard and warmth of others acutely at this time. Too, you may begin to feel that your ambitions and goals are not quite as wise as you once thought them to be–and this may send you on a quest to find something a little more solid upon which to build your future. That would be smart; use your ideals surrounding home, mate, and those things you honor as a guide. Happy Birthday, Virgo, and good luck!
Dear Virgo, you may feel like you’re way ahead of everyone else this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday–and you are, the only problem being that running at the front of the pack can be a lonely place–not to mention, others are looking to follow your lead, adding pressure and a more-than-usual awareness of the kind of presentation you are making to others. What’s a Solar Virgo to do? First, know that sooner rather than later a period of intense sensitivity you’ve been going through will end–you’ll feel closure, and at that point you will be free to focus on yourself. Too, you have exceptional natural power and authority at your disposal this year, along with an outstanding ability to negotiate the depths, especially those secret, psychic ones where passions reside; don’t neglect to use this ability carefully (by respecting boundaries) but still employing it to your advantage. And third, you need to think about and plan for the next career or status step–but don’t go for it just yet. Instead, have a Happy Birthday, Virgo, and good luck!
You may be running on instinct, and acting and reacting from your personal ‘blind spot’ this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, dear Virgo. What’s clear is that material hidden from the psyche will feature prominently in events, and will influence your choices and efforts–and how can one possibly prepare for that? One can’t reasonably prepare for that at all, but you’re in luck: your Solar Return Cancer Moon suggests a great capacity for sensitivity, empathy, and caring; if you’ll commit to feeling and trusting those feelings, you might navigate things very successfully. Don’t be tempted to go ‘dark’ or to reduce things solely to the material level, and embrace elements of ‘luck’ and general good fortune, especially in creating fortuitous relationships and in making good financial moves–because luck and good fortune are waiting to embrace you. Happy Birthday, Virgo, and good luck!
Noon Pacific time the Cancer Moon creates a Grand Trine with Chiron and Ceres. Emotions and sensitivity (especially that keyed to hurt) run high; issues of authority or territory may drive tension and force emotional displays. The key to balancing it all may be 1) we must really care, and 2) we must feel secure enough in our own power that we don’t feel threatened by others’ needs. If dealing with someone who seems unreasonable, try to offer them reassurance concerning their own security and safety–that’s really what they’re worried about. 2 PM PDT the Moon creates a T-square with the Uranus opposition to Pallas-Zeus. This is Cardinal and so active; tension is likely over each individual’s fear that they either will not reach a goal or ambition, or that they are doing something stupid. Try to keep perspective and realize that getting overwrought doesn’t help resolve anything. 10 PM PDT the Moon squares the Nodal axis and Mercury (conjunct NN) and trines Saturn. Reality is what it is, but we may insist that it’s taking us in a direction it isn’t, and point to our own thoughts and perceptions as proof. Find someone clear-sighted to bounce your thoughts off of. Midnight the Moon conjuncts Juno and trines Vesta (it’s also still squaring Merc). We may be feeling very empowered at this point, swinging-through-the-trees energetic and capable, especially when it comes to surety about our home, what we honor, and our mate. Your perception isn’t wrong, but it may be a bit distorted by our sheer abundance of energy, so proceed with care.
Emotional matters may take up the first portion of your Solar year, through to your next birthday, dear Virgo; specifically, you may spend a lot of time sorting through feelings and, using feelings to sort through, a variety of issues. Thinking about your feelings may become an early keynote, followed by lots of attention to relationships and/ or finances, which loom large and demand your energy–which is only right, as finding and centering identity on the personal authority you carry will be not just the centerpiece to going forward successfully, but also the way to get right with relationships and finances! So, your Solar year becomes about getting to know who you are now and what you feel. Expect empowerment trouble only if you are unwilling to set aside illusion and be fully engaged in reality. Watch throughout the year as transiting Saturn contacts various points and bodies; these natal energies will be the gateway to knowing at any time the state of ‘what is’, and will offer clues in how to deal with it. Happy Birthday, Virgo, and good luck!
This may be a relatively low-key year for you, dear Virgo, now through to your next birthday; you may spend it building, planning, gaining skills, and both a little lost and a great deal inspired in daily life. Really, what transpires will be largely internal, a form of growth or evolution that feeds the creativity and inspires you to connect with others and form a network that supports the new ideas you’ll be generating. Yes, friends may come and go at this time, but your ambitions are smart–follow your desires and you can’t go wrong. Happy Birthday, Virgo, and good luck!
14 September what we’ve learned from the past can guide us in adjusting our priorities now; if we don’t use some sort of guideline we run the risk of engaging in erratic, disruptive behavior that risks fouling our own ambitions and desires. Be open to change, even transformation, that’s available in relationships, to apply to finances, and through a general atmosphere of Love—really, accepting the need for reform is the only way to access the treasure—feelings are much more reliable than thoughts at this time—material matters reveal all we need to know and see.

Today’s image is a letter, addressed and sealed, never intended to be mailed. Do you have something to say to someone and it needs saying, for your own peace? The reality is that if we believe that the only closure comes from expressing our feelings directly to someone, then we’re not talking about expressing, we’re really hoping for a reaction or to engage with them–we’re not looking for peace, we’re looking for enmeshment. If you have something to say, say it–to the air, in a letter, shouting from on top of a mountain–and then let it go. True Self-expression doesn’t need an audience–and as that old saying goes, what we think of someone else is none of their business.

Though it comes at you obliquely, dear Virgo, in dreams, in meditations, through interaction with large institutions, through the Collective, through the egos of others, and through spiritual practice, it will come: things you’d hoped to compartmentalize, pretend aren’t happening, and ignore. These matters must be dealt with; it’s necessary so you can clear the decks of the psyche and become aware in a way you never have been before. What awaits your consciousness is something along the lines of hyper-instinct and a facility to see everything–if you deal successfully with the challenges presented, through the year to your next birthday, your reward will be an internal guidance system second to none and no personal blind spot–which can have its own pitfalls in the guise of being unable to block out the things you’d rather not see about others or your circumstances that normally help us all get through the day–but that’s a matter for another time. Happy Birthday, Virgo, and good luck!

You may feel all adrift this year, dear Virgo–others may be particularly puzzling, unreliable, and prone to shock or surprise you, communications may seem suppressed, as if no one’s speaking their mind, and you may be more than a little preoccupied planning for attaining your goals–and yet, life may feel especially good this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday. You may find you have some extraordinary ‘luck’, numerous opportunities come your way, and you may be truly inspired in all you do and pursue. It’s an odd combination of influences that pushes you toward Self-reliance and into a kind of isolated, even meditative, state; what results is a set of experiences you couldn’t have gotten any other way, and some once-in-a-lifetime spiritual and social development that leaves you in a far different place by this time next year. Happy Birthday, Virgo, and good luck!
You’re heading into a fate-determining year, dear Virgo, when you may set your course by a particular star and stay on that path for a long time to come. Positives this Solar year, through to your next birthday, include a stable, supportive home life (or maybe just a reassuring one, where home matters don’t disrupt other action), and plenty of wisdom available, from both your ‘inner voice’ and those with whom you cooperate or partner. You’re empowered to do what you want–your biggest obstacle may be yourself. Negatives include a too-quick temper, a propensity to jump into action before things are thoroughly planned, and a tendency to accept aid and support in pursuit of your ambitions but then hurt others by ‘forgetting’ what they’ve done for you. The negatives can all be avoided if you take things one step at a time and don’t lose sight of how much help you’ll actually attract during this period–it could be a lot, and you may gain new friends, partners, or even a mate in the process. Happy Birthday, Virgo, and good luck!
