‘Weinernte’ By Dora Hitz, before 1911 {{PD}}

Venus enters Virgo, and all those with a conscience begin to take their own inventory. That’s a good thing, a useful tool, and one that shows personal integrity–and becomes especially important as we’re largely unable to connect to our instinctual nature at this time. Nothing feels ‘natural’, and we suffer a sense of ‘flying blind’. Luckily, though, we do recognize what’s smart, what’s practical. It all becomes a matter of using those qualities emphasized right now to their fullest; the key is focusing on assessment of our own situation, our own need for correction. Those who are for whatever reason refusing to look at themselves will show it by their criticism of others–because that laser energy trained on detail and ‘correctness’ has to go somewhere, and rightfully so, as it’s something valuable–so use it wisely.

Thinking takes a very particular turn, as well. We are massively optimistic, fired up to implement what we see as ‘the facts’, but we find real-world obstacles in the way of realizing our hopes. Are these insurmountable? Not at all; if we’ll just slow down a bit, we’ll see that if we’re willing to make adjustments we can do exactly what we planned. My only warning: don’t overthink (it doesn’t make anything clearer), don’t over-promise, and don’t exaggerate–and especially, avoid mentally biting off more than we can chew. Jot down really big ideas, for dissection later.

Good day to . . . put accounts of all kinds in order. See to the details, take care of the paperwork, know where you stand.

For those born with the Sun at 28 Leo. Check your natal chart for the correct Sun degree (you may want to read both the degree number and the one that follows, if you have minutes on your Sun position–together these offer a more complete picture of your year ahead). Dear Leo, you are fully empowered this solar year, through to your next birthday, sure of your status, capable of wielding power–so what is this crisis with Love and/ or Money? My guess is you are stretched on your tippy-toes, either pushing things way too far yourself, or feeling this same pressure from someone near and dear, or from some sort of issue with income/ flow. How to get a handle on this? Take a long hard look at what’s actually within your power to control (not admitting what is and isn’t your responsibility may have started this thing in the first place), and then get your emotional perceptions behind taking effective action. It’s the only way to defuse the crisis and simultaneously get the mind thinking in big, action-oriented terms, the kind that you may be, if all goes well in straightening out the crisis, supremely good at making the most of. Good luck!
