Tiu's Day - Mars Day, the Day of Activity and Physicality, Passion and Desire - Action Day ....
Sun Virgo, with Mercury in retrograde, are allies to consider practical ways to adapt to the erratic and unstable economic conditions. It's timely for simplifying further, where possible, and making sure essential needs are met. Watching what's going on there, and using the Virgo powers of thinking it through, you can anticipate changes in your field, or possible job insecurity. It's a good time to consider a Plan B, or C, that can be a transition step if necessary.
Virgo Sun Themes:
•Consider changes in your diet for lightness, greater mental clarity, more calm.
•Clear out, clean up, downsize, weed the garden.
•Finishing touches, editing, research, citizen journalism.
•Creating solid neighborhood ties or friend/family groups that can help each other through hard times.
•Taking mental notes on what's going on, and taking steps to prepare yourself.
Excerpts from http://astrology.about.com/b/2010/08/23/sun-in-virgo-4.htm
The Sun in Virgo: tends to shun attention. Sure there are plenty of extroverted people with Virgo Sun-Signs, but if you check their horoscopes, you will find strong placements in Leo, or the Sun at an angle. The Virgo game plan is to work quietly behind the scenes, to be the power behind the throne. Did you ever see the "Colombo" series on TV? Now there is a perfect Virgo type, solving cases by noticing tiny details. The positive side of Virgo? Always helpful. Always doing things for you. The perfect servant. The negative side? Criticism and self-criticism too ("Oh my God. It’s an eighth of an inch off! This is terrible"! "But" you tell them "it’s a highway from the Earth to the Moon. What difference does an eighth of an inch make"? "But I made it a whole eighth of an inch off" they complain. I’m humiliated"!) Nothing is ever good enough. There are always tiny flaws. Don’t argue. The only way to stop this is to tell them "OK, discussion is over! This is what we’re going to do". And frequently, the Virgos will do it. Like I said, the perfect servants.
