The phrase “God is in the detail” is a old saying that asks us to be careful and thorough in execution because details matter. If a Virgo sun didn’t think of this then someone with heavy Virgo energy must have figured this out. Unlike Capricorn which deals in practical advancement (cardinal earth) and Taurus which deals with practical sustainment (fixed earth), Virgo engages in practical refinement (mutable earth).
Virgo season is upon us. Here is a run down of the current planetary postions
- Sun- 0 degrees Virgo
- Moon – 15 degrees Sagittarius
- Mercury- 25 degrees Virgo
- Venus- 17 degrees Leo (retrograde)
- Mars- 9 degrees Leo
- Jupiter- 2 degrees Virgo
- Saturn- 28 degrees Scorpio
- Uranus- 20 degrees Aries (retrograde)
- Neptune- 8 degrees Pisces (retrograde)
- Pluto- 13 degrees Capricorn (retrograde)
The way information is processed on a larger scale is colored by Virgo energy so precision is a necessity, however a certain amount of grace is allotted in our relationships due to Venus moving backwards thru Leo. The sun is moving away from a square aspect to Saturn and moving closer to an exact conjunct aspect with Jupiter. At large, we are feeling our ability to be optimistic grow. Looking at the small pieces may not make us so frustrated and emotionally heavy anymore. Faith goes a long way in giving us the energy and push we need to do another double check.
Virgo energy is not for the faint of heart. It begins a process of refinement that requires precision and stamina to endure. After the party and the pomp and circumstance of Leo exits stage left someone needs to be there to clean the mess, mend the curtains, and freshen up. We all should take steps to ensure that the virgin’s energy does not get out of hand. It is one thing to try and fine tune things but we need to remember that perfection is unattainable. Nervous energy needs an outlet and redirecting Virgo’s energy away from that quest for perfection is sometimes needed. The house that Virgo rules can let you know about the area of your life that could benefit from more scrutiny and detail work. Enact a bit of “get right” and let the virgin work their magic in your life.
