Daily Horoscopes are written according to where the Moon is located.
For that reason you will see the Moon information 1st paragraph (below),
the 2nd paragraph is the house that affects your Sign, and the 3rd paragraph is
the horoscope itself based on the information of the 1st and 2nd paragraph.

THE MOON IS IN VIRGO TODAY! Keywords: analytical, health, hygiene, critical, perfection, fitness, routine, in-service, volunteer, co-workers, employees, daily regimen, organization, scheduling, neatness, clean

The Moon in Virgo is trine (easy and effortless energy) your 5th house of pleasurable activities, dating, love affairs, playtime/acting, sensual emotions, lovers, parenthood and sexuality, creativity, artistic pursuits, hobbies, recreation, procreation, children. It also includes leisure, games, sports, self-fulfillment, joy and bliss.

Remember folks, Daily Horoscopes are written according to the Moon because the Moon changes signs every 2 to 2-1/2 days. Since there are 12 Sun Signs, we multiply 12 by 2 to 2-1/2 days and now you can see why it takes only one month for the Moon to move through all 12 Sun Signs. The Moon rules our moods, emotions, how we nurture, our memory, sensitivities, feelings and instincts. Now we throw in the energy of Virgo with the motto, "I analyze therefore I am." As I write to you fairly often, we have all 12 Sun Signs in our Natal Chart. Just because you may not have a planet in Virgo at the time of your birth does not mean that you don't have any Virgo energy. Each Sun Sign will appear somewhere in your chart wheel, either on a house cusp or between house cusps, which may be hidden from sight as an 'Interception'. All the same, you must get to know the analytical Virgo inside of you so that you can channel it appropriately.

Each one of us have a team of players within ourselves represented by all 12 Sun Signs. We 'have to have' each of the 12 Sun Signs within us so we can call upon it for proper use at the proper time. Virgo is a highly sharp and methodical Sun Sign that is in search of details. The smallest tiniest itty bitty detail Virgo can find it and nit-pick it until nothing gets done and THAT my little mentators is what you need to consider with this Virgo energy. You see, Virgo is so busy searching for the perfection that nothing gets accomplished, which is exactly why Virgo is the procrastinator of the zodiac. Too much attention to detail delays the start up. It's like blowing off a diet simply because you didn't start off perfectly in the morning or because you had a party to go to, so you might say, "I'll start next Monday." Oh creepin' crud, shut up and DO IT! The perfect time is now! I always tell my Virgo clients (since I have a natal North Node Virgo), "What if I decided not to publish this website because I didn't have it all laid out perfectly in my head? What if I didn't publish anything on the site because a few pages aren't complete?" If that were the case you wouldn't be reading this website at all. Do what you can and for Heaven's sake, don't not do something because it isn't absolutely perfect. Allow some room for Divine Guidance for cryin' outloud! Who are you that you know perfection so well??? It is better to do something, than nothing. Virgo is hypercritical and the nag of the zodiac. NAG NAG NAG! Virgo can pay such attention to a tiny detail that their world could be falling apart around them because that one little thing has their complete and undivided attention. If you are going to be that way, then balance your checkbook and stop picking on your Loved ones.

Virgo naturally rules the 6th house of the daily grind and daily routine. Think about this because anything or anyone that is of a daily use, value or influence falls under Virgo. That would be health, hygiene, fitness, nutrition, clothing, work ethic, co-workers, employees, service people, volunteers and pets. Capricorn is your career, Virgo is your work 'ethic'. You have to take care of pets on a daily basis. You have to eat on a daily basis. You have to wear clothes on a daily basis. You have to work on a daily basis. You have to see that employee or co-worker on daily basis. You have to brush your teeth on a daily basis. Professions that fall under the Virgo rulership are those professions that are exacting and perfectionists. Think about it, scientists, doctors, healthcare workers, accountants, engineers, cannot make a mistake. These are exacting professions and need very detailed perfectionistic eyeballs.

Folks, the Virgo Moon is always a fan-dang-tastical time to start a new daily routine including fitness and nutrition. I don't give a rat if you woke up and had a man-size ranch-hand breakfast with potatoes and sausage gravy, you can still workout later today and you can still eat healthy the rest of the day. Later today, I have a party evening lined up so I will be making certain that get that workout in today in order to balance out my caloric intake later on. I've been working off my 'winter coat' (LOL) since that Aries New Moon back in April 2013 and the days when I have something festive and party-like lined up, I plan for a higher caloric intake. My actions are deliberate and on purpose. I know what I'll be doing and I plan my calories for it. That's how nit-picky exacting Virgo energy is. IT'S FREAKIN' AWESOME! I'm workin' my North Node baby. Virgo energy is here to serve you because it is the 'in service' sign. Service yourself well. I don't care if you aren't a Virgo, Virgo Rising or a North Node Virgo, every one of you should be working your health game DAILY and even moreso, smacking yourself back into physical shape by making right choices during the Virgo Moon. GOT IT?

This is an absolute perfect time for you to engage in a physical activity that you truly enjoy because it can have a wonderful impact on your body. You may even meet Mr. or Miss Wonderful if you join a health club or engage in an activity where the opposite sex is enjoying their Life too. Keep in mind that you are under the influence of all the keywords above including pleasurable activities. You must involve yourself in a pleasurable activity that makes you smile. If you do not enjoy it, then don't do it. It must be enjoyable. It is also very important that you pay closer attention to your health through doing a pleasurable activity. If you are engaged in a relationship, then getting your sex Life back on track is just as important.
