The AstroEssence for the 4th: the social sphere may be the scene of psychic, spiritual, or emotional injury, or it may offer healing through presenting you with salient facts–in either case, tender areas may appear to the individual larger or more more public than they actually are, and it may feel as if our attention goes too much toward what won’t work. Apply your most unique skills to problems, difficulties, and all creative efforts today, and keep your eye on the future–both can effectively guide in-the-moment choices and help you avoid wasting your energy by looking in the wrong direction (Jupiter parallel Chiron, Sun conjoined and parallel NN–the marker of a recent eclipse, btw–and Sun contra-parallel Zeus)
Today’s word image is sunshine after a cloudburst. Timing is so important; sometimes waiting is the best thing we can do.
For those born with the Sun at 12 Virgo: you’ve attended to neglected issues, addressed your anger, righted as many wrongs as you personally could; now what, with this new Solar year? You have your eye firmly on the future–so what may suffer is the present. In spite of having everything squared away, you may come to realize that the present, unlike the past or future, needs constant attention. To make the most of this year, through to your next birthday, you should listen to others, and be open to collaborative projects; let go of any lingering residual anger; and measure where you put your energy by asking yourself, ‘Is this sacred, and so something I want to have in my life?’ and ‘Is this something I want to honor, by giving it my energy?’ Good luck, Virgo, and Happy Birthday!
