Hello, Virgo Sun

As much as they may like sweets, most children learn that eating too much sugar brings on a bad bellyache. The sun matures into Virgo, a place of organization, health and nurturing. It’s not that the party is over. It’s just that we are starting to come to terms with the understanding that if everything is fun, then nothing is fun.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You suddenly will become more focused on what needs to happen in order to reach a particularly challenging goal. It might be necessary to wake up earlier. The late afternoon is ideal for planning tomorrow’s efforts.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can’t make better choices if you don’t have better awareness. Since everything stems from your awareness, it makes sense to expose yourself to more and be extremely observant.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Today’s free offers will wind up costing you. Maybe it still will be worthwhile, though, so don’t let this deter you from accepting the gift. Just stay alert to all that transpires.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s only natural to give your attention to the people making all the noise, but they aren’t necessarily the people who need it most. Check in with those who are being a bit too quiet.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes you carry a smile in your back pocket, ready to use at the right moment. But today you’re better off just wearing it constantly. It will remind you that you’re basically happy and have much to give.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your rule is to under-promise and over-deliver. Someone will ask you for a commitment, though, making the first part of the equation a bit tricky. Word things carefully and thoughtfully, and you’ll do just fine.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Stay on top of your intentions for the day by writing them down. Without a to-do list, you may get lost in the shuffle. Also, there will be some unexpected downtime, but if you’re very organized, you’ll use it productively.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Previews give you an idea of what you’re in for if you make a choice. But some decisions don’t come with a custom-edited trailer of the highlights. Today you’ll have to pay the admission to see the show.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You enjoy being generous, but you sometimes worry that people will lean too hard on you if you give too much. Remember that generosity isn’t always about money and big gestures. Sometimes generosity is a simple stick of gum.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Don’t let the organizational details hang you up. Sometimes the best move is the one that is just good enough to move you forward. The main thing is to keep moving forward.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Most parenting strategies are based on the idea that the right kind of reminders can help someone become a better person. You’ll parent yourself today with a few clever reminders, and improvement will be immediate.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don’t need one special person in your life to be successful. Often, it’s a core group of people that supports you best. You’ll be adding to that core group and minimizing the need to find, or rely on, just one person.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 22). You’ll see fantastic sights this year thanks to a combination of excellent planning and spontaneous risk-taking. Next month sees you answering a challenge and becoming a hero of your own story. A loved one’s plan will involve you and give you new purpose in October. November brings family expansion. Capricorn and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 25, 44, 18 and 45.

VIRGO SUN CALL TO ACTION: The Virgo sun will rule between now and September 22, presenting one of the most vigorous times of the year. Ruled by Mercury, Virgo energy is at its best in motion. But it’s also an earth sign and connected to the physical world. Virgo frowns on motion for its own sake. Satisfaction comes from seeing the plant sprout, the mountain move, the barn rise. To qualify things further, Virgo is an energy of great purpose. Its declaration, “I analyze,” suggests that actions taken during the Virgo rule are not only physically verifiable, but also purposeful. In other words, it’s not enough to act; we must also act smart. When it’s not apparent what the smartest move is, here’s a hint: The smart move usually answers the question “why.”

It will take a few days to ease out of the fun, playtime and theatrics of the Leo sun and into the busy Virgo mood. But don’t worry. Just because the action and the thinking kick up a notch doesn’t mean we have to completely lose track of the fun. The work we accomplish during this Virgo transit might be even more enjoyable than the playful antics of the last solar phase.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: “Despicable Me II” star Kristen Wiig has a full schedule of movie projects booked for years into the future, one of which is the much awaited sequel: “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.” Some babies born today will be Leos and others will be Virgos. In the year Wiig was born, the sun was in Leo on August 22nd, and Mercury (communication) was in this entertaining and playful sign, as well.
