First I will address the Sun in Virgo because the house that Virgo rules in your personal natal chart is where you should be acting and reacting just like a Virgo, which is why this information is so important. The the final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your Sun Sign. It is important to undertand how the energy of the Sun operates under various conditions (Sun Signs) so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

Virgo naturally rules the 6th house of daily life, routine, health, hygiene, food, work, employees, service, skills, servants, small animals, clothing, sickness, working environment, skills, pets, animals and service, cooking, cooks, crafts and craftsman, care for the body, assimilation of food, nutrition, common people in everyday Life, diets, dieticians, there is an element of 'employers' here and definitely employees, gain from games or gambling, labor, labor forces, medical professions, the money of the child, work that requires precision, detail and accuracy such as scientific or engineering, healthcare.

This Virgo energy has the motto of, "I analyze therefore I am." Take into consideration the professions that Virgo rules that require precision, detail and accuracy such as the scientific fields, engineering or healthcare. If Virgo is not granular and microscopic in their analysis then someone can be injured or even die. Virgo energy knows that precision and accuracy are of the utmost importance. Virgo also rules professions such as accountants, filing and editing. Imagine the chain reaction that could occur if mistakes are made in these areas. Mis-filing could result in someone not receiving their check. Miscalculations could cause a building to fall down on someone. Inaccurate number crunching could result in penalties, fines and fees. Bad editing could result in the wrong choice of words, thereby resulting in misinterpretation of the facts. False positive lab results could result in a mis-diagnosis.

Virgo energy is methodical, necessary and systematic. This energy has to be channeled appropriately and monitored carefully so that dire consequences are not the result. Virgo rules the physical health while its opposite sign Pisces rules the mental health. The attention and care given to one's diet, hygiene and fitness is crucial for optimal daily living. Too much of Good thing, isn't and too much of bad thing, is.

When you think of Virgo, think of anything that requires your minute attention on a daily basis because if not, negative consequences will be the result. This is why work ethic and daily work is ruled by Virgo. Your career and profession is ruled by the 10th house but it is the work ethic, daily grind and daily routine that is ruled by Virgo. This Virgo energy needs to be routinely on time, not some of the time, but routinely on time or someone will get fired. It is my personal opinion, as a North Node Virgo, that anyone who is routinely late is doing it on purpose. Sooner or later the Law of Averages says you will be on time a certain portion of the time even if you are habitually late. If a person is routinely late then they are basically stalling or driving around the block doing it on purpose in order to make their grand, 'Here I am, look at me' entrance. As a North Node Virgo, this is exactly why I choose to make the phone call when I book a phone reading or health consult appointment with someone. It is ME who calls the person because I know that I will be on time.

Virgo energy is all about structure, detail and understanding subtleties. Virgo enjoys intricate patterns and microscopic evaulation. Virgo requires the ultimate discipline in training in order to get the body into peak performance. Virgo is naturally ruled by Mercury, which rules the mind. The mental game that Virgo has to be play on a daily basis is requirement for healthy daily living. This is why taking care of your health is a mental game. I think another fantastic motto for Virgo should be, "Mind over matter." Once Virgo energy mentally wraps their brain around something, it is in there to stay and positive results occur. That's why those who have a hard time getting their health in check should dive into understanding nutrition, dietary needs and physical exercise on the most detailed level. Anyone who has a difficult time losing weight should take double the amount of time to grocery shop because they need to read and understand every single label. Wrapping your brain around the details is what leads to success in any Virgo endeavor. Mind over matter! When comprehension of proper dietary needs and proper body movement (exercise) are achieved, so is health. Another fantastic motto for Virgo could be, "I maintain therefore I am" simply because Virgo maintains on a daily basis. To maintain is be routine.

This 6th house also rules people who show up in our daily Life such as co-workers, employees, those who serve us and those who are in-service to us. Virgo also rules volunteers and is all about serving others. It is the routine of being in-service and helping others that help to build our Good character. The best thing to do when you are down on your luck, down on yourself or down in the dumps is to take your energy and channel into being in-service to others. When you volunteer your time then you can really see what down on your luck, down on yourself or down in the dumps really looks like on someone else. That will snap you out of it; or at least it should.

Lastly, even though Virgo is the perfectionistic sign of the zodiac, they are also the procrastinator of the zodiac. Virgo will wait and wait and wait until they think the timing is perfect before they begin or finish a project. When the pressure is on, Virgo works very well under pressure even though it doesn't have to be that way, but, so it goes and plays out that very way, under pressure. Virgo is all about mastery. In fact, Virgo will read a bazillion self-help books and say, "Gee, that was really a great book" and then put it on the shelf without actually applying the information. So they have this collection of self-help books but lack in application of the information. Remember, Virgo is about routine, which means application. As a North Node Virgo, this is PRECISELY why I make my work about DOING SOMETHING AND APPLYING the information, not just reading what I have on these pages and saying "Well that was interesting." This is why I push you, shake my finger and sometimes throw out a few curse words every now and then in order to get you to get off your ass and do something. (ooopsie!) My North Node Virgo requires me, to push you, to apply. What if I waited and waited and waited until this website was perfect in order to publish it and get dekiver information to you? What do you think about that? Then you wouldn't be reading it right now!!! It's not perfect and I can't procrastinate on something as silly as perfection. I have places to go and people to see. So some pages aren't complete, they will be sooner or later but in the meantime I deliver what I have thus far. APPLY YOURSELF FOLKS! Daily routine is Good and it will work for you.

For all Libra's, the Sun affects your 12th house of the hidden realm, subconscious, past, pain, karma, jails, institutions, hospitals, finances of friends, secret sorrows, fears, self-destruction, large animals, skeletons in closet, self-undoing and self-injury. It is about your hidden strengths, weaknesses and what you don't want others to see or know about you, unredeemed karma and selfless service to humanity. Refrain from letting this house frighten you because it is necessary that you look at your own self-undoing in order to keep yourself on the straight path.

When the Sun hits the 12th house of the hidden realm, there is a saying in astrology that says, "The native is receiving mixed signals." This is also the house that Pisces naturally rules. The native being the person this pertains to, which is YOU at this time. Since this is the hidden realm, then your sub-conscious represents what is hidden, which is exactly what you wish to keep secret. The Good news about this aspect is it will cause you to become more aware of your hidden motives that are deep in your subconscious which are driving your conscious actions. This is where the mixed signals comes into play.

While you are working through this, you may confuse yourself as well as others. The 12th house can be a tremendous opportunity for growth when you use this energy to get to know yourself better. So big deal if you have a hidden agenda that you were not previously aware; now you get to change it . . . and that type of change is the Good stuff. Scroll down to read your Mercury Opportunity.

Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

This Mercury in Libra transit focus on the right relations with people. In fact, the psychology of 'right relationships' is going to be a bigger topic of conversation and investigation right now. Oh it just keeps getting better with relationships! Work it baby, work it! Did you know that Mercury in Libra makes it easier to understand astrology? Uh huh, it sure does. Happiness in relationships is very important right now and quite frankly, the unhappy relationships that are not working will be easier to let go simply because relationship happiness is so important right now. Letting go of a non-working relationship and giving up whatever you were clinging to in that relationship is going to be a bargain.

Mercury in Libra causes us to become more curious about relationships and thinking about the behavioral patterns in relationships. Good communications and happiness in relationships are going to be very important right now as we begin studying our relationship communication pattern. This creates a desire for a mental partnership with easy communication because of our interest in what others think.

Since Libra rules fair play and justice, then we can count on seeing more individuals becoming vocal about injustices. Not to mention this transit is very Good for anything legal and those in the legal profession.

Mercury in Libra intensely dislikes crude, coarse or crass behavior and speech. Those who use curse words reflexively will probably be called out by the first person standing by. This type of behavior will be socially unacceptable.

Mercury in Libra is moving through your 1st house of personality, how you see the world, how others see you, attitude, appearances, worldly outlook, self-awareness and how you respond.

A boost of energy has entered your personality. This boost can be used chaotically or in an organized way to get more accomplished. That is the awesome thing about astrology is allows for your free will. You always "get to" choose. Scatter or organize. So what is it going to be . . . scattered or organized? Remember, this is the house of personality and how you respond; therefore, this transit is about how you communicate with yourself. Other people will also see you in response to how you see you. In other words, they will treat you in the same manner that you treat yourself. They are merely following your lead. If you say that you are anything less than wonderful, then other people will say the same thing. Scroll down to read your Venus Opportunity.

The Venus glyph is the upright symbol of Mars, where Venus is feminine (yin) energy and Mars is masculine (yang) energy. It is represented by the circle of spirit over the cross of matter. It represents the spirit overcoming matter through Love. Venus is the yin side of our emotional nature and rules Love, beauty, harmony, affection, appreciation, sensual, vanity, flirtatious, art, music and aesthetics. Venus is the estrogen in the chart. The house that Venus occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

First let's talk about the meaning of Venus in the sign of Virgo and then the last couple of paragraphs will pertain to your sign. Venus is the planet of Love, romance, pleasure, relationships, self-worth, dignity and all things beautiful. Venus is like the Greek root phil- or philo- which means to have a Love of or strong affinity for. So when you think of Venus in your personal natal chart think "Love of" whatever sign is involved.

Venus in Virgo is actually in its Fall. This is where you do not have all of the tools necessary to help you. This is like someone thrust into a management position 'without' the knowledge, experience or skills necessary to do the job. Or it's like the 6th grader entering college. It's just out of place and you will need some extra help. Venus in Pisces is in its exalted state (strength), which is why Venus in Virgo (Pisces opposite sign) is in its Fall (weakest state).

This placement brings about an over-analysis of emotions and causes us to be critical of those we Love. It is the classic nag! It complains, nags and whines about Loved ones. If you find yourself doing this, then ask yourself, "Who the hell are you?" When this card is played inappropriately then it can cause us to make others feel inhibited and self-conscious, which in turn closes down the spontaneous ebb and flow of communication. Talk about throwing a wrench in the cogwheels of Love! Venus in Virgo is looking for perfection in Love and dissects a relationship petal by petal instead of looking at the totality of the bloom. You may ask yourself during this quick transit of Venus, "How easy am I to live with and how do I express my Love?" In other words, do not focus on how someone else expresses Love to you, focus on how you express Love to them. Those with Venus in Virgo in their natal chart usually stay single longer and do not marry more than any other Virgo placement simply because they can not (and will not) find that 'perfect' Love. The illusion is there is no 'perfect' Love. We may find the perfect Love(r) for us but it will not be perfect.

For all Libra's, Venus in Virgo is moving through your 12th house of what cannot be seen, endings, karma, finances of friends, secret sorrows, fears and self-undoing.

This is a time where you may be denying yourself Love in order to give it to others. Venus in this position is saying, "Instead of expressing self-ish Love and it being all about me, I will now express self-less Love." You may find yourself coming to the aid of others simply because they need assistance. They may not even know they need help until you make it known. You may be drawn to volunteer work or some form of service toward humanity. Charitable organizations are on your hit list. Gratitude is not necessary for you during this time because your mission is to help and that is the bottom line.

You have been through a lot in your Lifetime and the struggle of others will remind you of where you have been in your own struggles and how you can help. Everything does happen for a reason and now you will be able to use the information and experience you have received in order to repay the karma. The 12th house also rules karma. Do not be afraid of the karma because you will be giving back voluntarily without hesitation or reservation. Repaying karma voluntarily sure beats being required to do it. You may catch yourself saying, "I GET IT!" Scroll down to read your Mars Opportunity.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Libra would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Scorpio 2nd house, Sagittarius 3rd house, Capricorn 4th house, Aquarius 5th house, Pisces 6th house, Aries 7th house, Taurus 8th house, Gemini 9th house, Cancer 10th house, Leo 11th house and Virgo 12th house - Venus in Virgo.

Check out the Mars Moving Through the Signs Calendar. Dates are listed from 1920 up until 2015.

First I will address the Mars in Sagittarius and then the final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your Sun Sign. It is important to undertand the energy of Mars and how it operates so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

Mars is the planet of assertion and drive. Mars is aggressive, impulsive and ram-rod's its way through whatever it wants and it will do without your permission and quite comfortably I might add without a guilty bone in its exo-skeleton body. Mars is the testosterone in the chart. It will describe the degree of force that we go after what we want. Mars will tell us whether we are forceful and confrontational or if we prefer to sit back and watch. It will also reveal what motivates us and what desires drive us most powerfully. The house that Mars occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

Oh this is indeed a fiesty placement for Mars in outspoken, tactless and enthusiastic Sagittarius. Picture a rider sitting on a rared up horse pumping their fist in the air yelling, "Yahooooooo!" . . . or "Hell Yeah!" . . . or "Charge!" That is exactly what this Mars in Sagittarius picture looks like. Mars in Sagittarius is a leader through shrear inspiration. Actually, this placement inspires and motivates as it leads the charge toward exploration and adventure.

Mars in Sagittarius has extremely strong philosophic and/or religious convictions that it will fight, debate, defend and argue to the death. It will be interesting to see how this transit plays out on the global front regarding the USA and the Middle East. The sense of justice here is very strong and can give the feeling of being invincible. Feeling invincible as a nation or as an individual can be dangerous thing if restrictions and limitations are not addressed.

Mars in Sagittarius in the natal chart can look like the child or adult with ADD or ADHD. This placement produces some of the highest levels of physical energy and enthusiasm, which creates a very sort attention span. Many projects are started and just as many are left unfinished. Energies are scattered and work is sloppy and disorganized. Since we are talking about Mars in Sagittarius, the centaur, which is half man and half horse, picture a horse fenced in and trapped behind a gate. Sooner or later that horse with all of that energy is going to jump the fence and run. Mars in Sagittarius has to have its freedom. It needs space. This placement needs unrestricted freedom at all costs.

When you think about the USA and the Middle East, we do have a freedom issue here. Politically speaking, there are going to be a lot of hotter debates going on right now. There will be a lot of outspoken debaters just foaming at the mouth trying to over-talk each other. Sagittarius incessantly interrupts anyway but now it will take on a whole new level of interruption.

Speaking of freedom, lets think about Love and relationships while Mars is rolling through Sagittarius. There are some Lovers who will begin to feel trapped or fenced in creating a freedom issue. One person may be telling another, "I need space." If you are already feeling the relationship effects of this placement, then just pull back and give the other person some space before they ask for it. Mars in Sagittarius has never really been known for being consistent or particularly constant in relationships. This is a sporty placement as well because Mars naturally rules competitive and sports-minded Aries. The approach to sex will be as though it was a sport. For uncommitted singletons, it may be hard to commit to just one person because of the feeling of being trapped or fenced in. This is a very strong placement for sex as well. Mars is the testosterone planet and when placed in the sign of the horse . . well, need I say more? Mars in Sagittarius in a man's chart does mean that he is well-endowed with family jewels or should I say, "Hung like a horse." Sorry folks, it is astrology and I am just giving you the astrological facts. I don't want to hold back on you, especially during blunt and frank Mars in Sagittarius. Tell it like it is GIRL! When it comes to sex this placement can also be blunt and often times crude when going after sex.

All said, this placement is fun, it is cheerful and it is welcome in just about anyone's home or at a social gathering. It's like that loud mouth girl or loud mouth guy that everyone like's even though they won't shut the hell up. You just can't help but like them. This placement does bring confidence, excitement and optimism that is hard to turn away. Mars in Sagittarius rarely fails because failure is not an option. This is the gambler of the zodiac who will always roll the dice on themselves. So if there is anything you should take away from these paragraphs it is a quote from the Flight Director of Apollo 13, Gene Kranz who said, "Failure is not an option." That is a Mars in Sagittarius quote if I ever heard one.

Mars is all about AGGRESSION and DRIVE! Mars in Sagittarius is trine (easy and effortless) your 3rd house of communication, writing, mental abilities, lower education from 1st to 12th grade, early learning, immediate environment, short journeys, local travel and travel within your own country.

With Mars influencing your 3rd house of communication, you may feel more passionate than usual to shift your opinions onto others. This is a time where you will need to keep your ego in check before you choose to react to someone else's belief systems. Writing, publishing and speaking are all heightened right now. If your career involves using mental activity, you can work longer than usual. Take advantage of this extra boost of energy. If your career involves sales and marketing, then this is a time to work more and sleep less. Scroll down to read your Chiron Opportunity.

Chiron in Pisces turns Retrograde at 17 degrees on Saturday, June 20, 2014 at 8:46 AM EDT until November 24, 2014 at 7:44 PM EDT at 13 degrees. This is when you will have to retrace your steps and get in touch with your own woundology. When you can source your own woundology, then it will be easier to understand others and assist them. The subject matter below in your 6th house is where you will be retracing your steps during this Retrograde period.

Chiron is all about discovering your WOUNDED HEALTH WITHIN! For all Libra's, this involves your natural ruling 6th house of health, hygiene, fitness, nutrition, food, clothing, all 'daily' activities, co-workers, employees and your daily work ethic. Chiron is an asteroid and is called, the wounded healer. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, represents our emotional and physical wounds. It reveals a part of us that is hurt, small and vulnerable. Chiron encourages us to heal our wounds, and then look beyond personal realms, to see the suffering of others, and to become teachers and healers. The house that Chiron occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

There is a thought that we create our own suffering because we continue to cling to material possessions, behaviors, beliefs and ideas that we need to release in order to move to our higher-self. Ahhhhhh . . read that sentence again for a deeper impact. Wherever you find Chiron in your Natal Chart, it represents where you suffer and how you can release your own suffering to move forward in Life.
