Today is Moon Day - the Day of Remembering and Feeling - Impression Day

The Sun in Virgo - Virgo is an Earth sign bringing qualities of resourcefulness, practicality and skill. It is also a Mutable sign which brings flexibility, problem-solving and skills as an intermediary.  Virgo is symbolized as a female holding an ear of wheat and is identified as the Earth Goddess: Isis, Ishtar, Persephone or Ceres. Virgos are usually analytical, critical and seek efficiency and perfection, although they are also practical, adaptable and variable. They tend to be restrained, passive and prefer to avoid confontation. Intelligent and discerning, they can appear to be critical. Their attention to detail is often seen as fussiness and fault finding, but makes them effective where precision is needful. In relationships and love they tend to be reserved, conventional and even-tempered. Although they can sometimes seem quite cool, they do need the reassurance which they rarely seek. They are self-analytical, often self-critical and apt to worry. Virgos often find themselves counseliung and advising others, sometimes to the detriment of those close to them, as their ability to unravel problems, analyze information and get to the root of the matter is much sought after.
   At this time of the year Virgoans should take care to slow down, remembering to ask for, rather than give advice. In relationships they should by all means seek the reassurance they crave, but be wary of appearing too needy. Non-Virgoans will find this a good time for understanding any kind of self-analysis and personal exploration. Work involving attention to detail, numbers and memorizing things will be enhanced.
