This week is all about structure and stature. The powerful, royal Sun dances in a harmonious trine (60 degree angle) with stabilizing Saturn all week, meeting at the same degree on Thursday. Do you want to be seen as powerful, masterful, and capable? Then, you’d better walk your talk. Saturn, which is currently in retrograde, helps us tighten up the ship. We may have to retreat a few steps, review and redo in order to regain our leading edge. There’s no coasting on ego or accolades this week. For the “works in progress” out there, the Sun-Saturn trine illuminates the next steps along our journey to mastery. An incredible teacher could appear (or reappear, given Saturn’s retrograde) to guide us along our paths. Welcome those Yoda figures with open arms. Saturn is a results-junkie and the Sun’s influence motivates us into action. As The Grand Master of The Jedi Order himself said, “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” Tangible productivity is how you’ll make a name for yourself.
Sunday marks the annual full moon in Virgo, bringing order to our courts. With nitpicky Virgo at the wheel, the devil is in the details. If we’ve dotted our i’s and crossed our t’s, there could be cause for a victory dance this weekend. If not, use the two weeks that follow the full moon (its “harvest period) to get all those ducks in a row. Since the moon governs the emotional realm, leave no stone unturned in conversations. A little reassurance goes a long way to keep important relationships in harmony. Earthy Virgo loves everything clean and green. Since size matters when it comes to our carbon footprints, find ways to make yours smaller like sharing rides to work (or biking and walking more), using a refillable water bottle instead of creating landfill fodder with plastic ones, sending PDFs instead of printouts, and fueling your body with unprocessed, pesticide free foods. Virgo is the sign of selfless service, making the next two weeks as an optimal time to get involved with a volunteer mission, practice random acts of kindness, and jump into the “Best Supporting” role for the ones we adore.
