Planet Tracker for August 23: Sun is in Virgo

Sun in Virgo: Discerning, Modest, Detail-Oriented

August 22 – September 22, 2018


Perfection is at an all-time high when the Sun is in meticulous Virgo from August 22 – September 22! This is a time when we’ll say goodbye to the playful days of rambunctious Leo so that we can take life a bit more seriously. Sure, we’ll all still be feeling the carefree summertime vibes, but the Virgo Sun shows us how to focus more on our work, our health, and how to make ourselves useful to society.

When the Sun is in Virgo

The Sun’s move into detail-oriented Virgo gives all of us a leg up on polishing our skills, getting organized, or doing any activities that require us to pay close attention. Reveal what you can do to make the most of the quest for perfection during this transit:

WHAT TO DO:

Get your work done — perfectly. Then go for a run, get a deep tissue massage, and wind down with a good book and a glass of fine wine. Virgo is an Earth sign that values sensation and the best experiences in life.

WHAT TO SAY:

“Let me look at that.” Virgo doesn’t let anything go — a quality that is both invaluable and annoying. It’s great to have an eye for the smallest details, but if you’re double-checking someone else’s work, take it easy on them if you find fault — and you will, because the Sun is in Virgo!

WHERE TO GO:

Camping! Earthy Virgo finds comfort and security when surrounded by nature and wildlife, so get out to the country during the Virgo Sun. Such a serene setting will also calm Virgo’s overly anxious tendencies, and help you loosen up and relax.

WHAT TO WEAR:

A cashmere cardigan and a comfy pair of shoes. Practical Virgo is most at home in luxurious yet comfortable clothing. Virgo can be a fussy sign, so it’s best to keep it clean, cozy, and simple when it comes to getting dressed in Virgo season.

WHAT TO BUY:

A vacuum cleaner! Forget “spring cleaning” — it’s all about “summer cleaning” when the Sun is in Virgo. Pick up a broom, a mop, and a new feather duster, because now is the perfect time to use that meticulous Virgo energy to get your home spotless.

WHAT TO WATCH OUT FOR:

Being too critical and judgmental. Virgo can sometimes be too finicky, turning “perfect” into picky, which can be annoying and frustrating for others. Strive to loosen up a little and let a few things go — after all, not everything needs to be flawless.

WHAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO:

Getting back on track. Sun in Virgo is an organized and practical period in which to get back to business after a few lighthearted months. It may not be all fun and games, but you will feel fantastic about how much you’ve accomplished.

If you were born with the Sun in Virgo

Virgo is considered the perfectionist of the zodiac. As a practical, Mercury-ruled sign, you generally prefer neatness and order to loose ends and chaos. People sometimes see your need for order as excessive, but your focus on the details simply ensures efficiency and high quality work — two things you love!

You are body-aware, and place an importance on your health and nutrition. In fact, you take your well-being so seriously that you may have gotten a reputation for being a hypochondriac. You just like making sure that everything is in perfect working order — even your body.

LOVE:

Because it is called “The Virgin,” people mistakenly think of Virgo as a passionless sign — and that’s simply not true! In reality, you have an appreciation for all aspects of intimacy: mental, emotional, and physical.

You take your time picking a partner, and you’d much rather be single than with someone who doesn’t live up to your standards. You don’t open up right away, but when you do, you are devoted and will do whatever it takes to keep your partner happy in the relationship.

CAREER:

All Virgos have one common problem: none of you can relax! Work is play to you, and you genuinely enjoy organizing projects and checking items off your to-do list. You’re analytical and precise which is why careers in technology, science, or finance usually appeal to you. You have a sense of duty to complete tasks simply because there’s a job to be done and someone has to do it. The phrase “if you want something done right, then do it yourself” must have been coined by a Virgo!

FRIENDSHIP:

While not everyone is invited into your social circle — you hold others to the same high standards you have for yourself — you are an incredibly loyal friend to those who are. The only thing you enjoy more than getting things done perfectly is lending a helping hand to those closest to you. When a friend has a problem, you’re able to get in there with your meticulous mind and examine the nitty-gritty details so you can come up with a solution.

WHAT SETS YOU APART:

You have quite an eye for detail, Virgo! You always work hard to dot your i’s and cross your t’s so that everything goes according to plan. Just remember to take a break and not judge yourself or others too harshly. Nobody is perfect!

Today’s Witches Rune for August 23 is Woman

Today’s Witches Rune

Woman

Meaning: The first meaning of this rune is quite obvious: it represents women. Any woman that is important in the question, whether you know her or not, will be represented by this rune. Mother, sister, aunt, grandma, a female boss, friend, lover or even enemy… all can be symbolized by the appearance of this rune.

In a more general sense, this rune is related to traditional female abilities and characteristics, such as giving birth, nurturing, comforting and healing. When this rune appears, you can count on the sympathy of others towards you or your situation. In its most negative aspects, the Woman rune can show over-protectiveness, a patronizing attitude or co-dependency. It often strives to maintain the status quo, refusing to change even if the situation is bad.

The Woman rune is connected to nurturing – nurturing a relationship, a person or a project. Like the Moon rune, it can be related to finding a safe place to rest and heal, but while the Moon implies a solitary retreat, the Woman often shows that you need to go back to the people you trust, the people you feel safe with.

Healing is another strong aspect of this symbol, as well as teaching. You can be both the patient/student or the healer/teacher when this rune appears. This rune is also connected to creativity, but in a way that is different from the Romance rune. While the latter is about the conception of a project – the initial stages of creation – the Woman is about the birth of this project. When your creation is brought out into the world, fully manifested.

In relationship readings, this rune isn’t bad, but rather weak. While it can indicate subtle ties between people, these are usually so, so subtle that the partners can easily drift away from each other. It can show that one of the partners sees the other as someone who needs to be protected and healed, rather than an equal. Usually, the romance is a bit stagnated when this rune appears, or very close to becoming a friendship.

Your Ancient Symbol Card for August 23 is The Green Man

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today

The Green Man

Where the Green Man appears the mystery and untamed energy of nature abounds. The Green Man indicates the presence of choices and powers that have not been muted by civilization. The Green Man represents the antithesis of technology and industrialization. He offers primal energies veiled in mystery and derived from the spirit of nature in its purest form.

As a daily card, The Green Man indicates you are in a place where you will be well served by exploring your place in the natural world. At the moment the wisdom that will serve you best cannot be found in books or on talk shows or extracted from today’s headlines. What’s called for is an affirmation of your place in the natural world.
