When the Sun and/or planets move through the sign Virgo, everyone begins to talk more. Talk, talk, talk and more talk. There’s a reason. Talking helps us sort out and integrate experiences, thoughts and ideas. Mercury and Jupiter are now in Virgo, which means a surplus of ideas flowing through minds. Thus, lots of talking. Mercury is exalted in Virgo. Jupiter expands Virgo.
Virgo has a great ability to see, point out, discuss and tend to earthly details. Pisces loves Virgo (sometimes). Pisces peers through clouds and veils, not quite understanding the Earth plane. Pisces is water (flowing) to Virgo’s Earth (solid). Often, Pisces turns to Virgo to understand those details before returning behind the veils. Veils are a comfort for Pisces, but for Virgo they are a frustration. Virgo is busy, serving all the time, seeing everyone’s potential, working and waiting for that potential to come forward.
While Mercury is in Virgo we must be detailed and precise in our communication, discriminating in our choices without emotional or critical reactions.
Jupiter is the enthusiastic big picture. In Virgo, Jupiter offers the larger context surrounding the details. Both are needed.
Jupiter in Virgo is a bit cautious, less exuberant, and hides its enthusiasm (at first). Jupiter becomes the professor speaking of religions, philosophies, culture and travel. Jupiter invites Virgo onto the playground, to take a rare quenching gulp of pleasure. At first, Virgo uses a thousand words (Mercury) to say, “No. I must be efficient, tend to details, create routines and schedules, and order daily life. I have no time to play.” Jupiter laughs. He has lots of time. Jupiter remains in Virgo for an entire year (till September 2016).
Friday, Aug. 14, is Leo new moon. The New Group of World Servers invites everyone to the Leo festival by reciting the Soul and Great Invocations. “Let light, love and power restore the plan on Earth.”
