The story is beginning to accumulate in my mind. I understand the Turtle is taming the Lizard… go a head and dream of the future, know what there is to know, but don’t think that “knowing” is permission to skip the necessary steps of getting there.  Turn off the outside world and travel inward, communing not only with Self, but with the Powers that be – the Masculine and Feminine all that is – God and Goddess.  Put fears and worries aside, otherwise they’ll be manifested, and trust that my needs will be met in time – and while I’m waiting in solitary reflection, express my innermost thoughts creatively, and with a grateful spirit, unabashedly unique.

I feel better.  Seriously… I woke up slightly irritable, and I feel much better.

Here are the day’s correspondences:

Sun:
Virgo, The Virgin

As the sixth sign of the zodiac, Virgo represents the sixth stage in the evolution of man and his place in the universe. In Leo the need is to discover and develop man’s individuality and creative potential. In Virgo the need is to find ways to put man’s individual talents to the best possible use. This is why Virgo is known as the sign of service. For many Virgos, the need to make things better is satisfied by pursuing careers in health-related fields or in other areas such as teaching, labor relations, environmental protection, social work, or religious counseling. Though most of them do have altruistic motives in helping others, it must also be said that Virgos have a tendency to act the martyr when their service or counseling is ignored, and it is not unheard of for them to use guilt as a weapon when they want to elicit the attention and cooperation of others. Virgos have to learn that helping others to improve is one thing, but pushing them toward goals of perfection they cannot hope to accomplish is destructive as well as impossible.

Virgos adapt to change. This trait is a strength because it is a survival mechanism, and a weakness because it makes them vulnerable to the demands and influence of other people. Instinctively responsive to the needs of others, they usually adapt to different people and changing circumstances by finding ways to make themselves useful. The Virgin is the astrological symbol of Virgo and, like the true virgin, most Virgos are shy. Like a virgin waiting to give herself to the perfect lover, Virgos are also idealistic. Unfortunately when they allow idealism to get out of hand, nothing is accomplished. The virgin becomes a bitter spinster and talents die on the vine. Though intensely personal situations are inhibiting, there are other situations when Virgos can be very dynamic. When the spotlight is not directly on them but on a product or a service they offer, they are excellent salespersons.

Virgos react to what they experience by assessing its practical worth. Before they take physical action, before they sort out their emotional involvement, and before they reason it out intellectually, they must ascertain what tangible advantages are to be gained from the experience. If the advantages they find are not necessarily useful to them, they are willing to give them to those who can benefit. Virgos are effective negotiators. They patiently endure endless details and responsibilities if convinced it accomplishes an end they think justifies their efforts.

Mercury, planet of the intellect, rules Virgo, giving Virgos an analytical approach to life. That communication is important to Virgos is aptly demonstrated by the fact that so many of them are very talkative. They love books, magazines, and writing. With a critical eye for organization and detail and their constant search for perfection, Virgos have an irresistible urge to improve everything and everyone, whether they need it or not. Virgos are not above using their inability to achieve perfection as an excuse for their own idleness and unproductiveness. Out of character with their true nature, these Virgos are sloppy, disorganized, and irresponsible. What is worse, their own bad habits do not in the least inhibit them from criticizing others for the same behavior. Their analytical ability makes them excellent critics of the talent and performance of those more skilled than themselves. Virgos need to think that what they do is of a practical and helpful nature. The worthiness of their self-sacrificing efforts is spoiled at times however, when they exact tangible proof of gratitude from those who benefited from their actions.

Likely to be health conscious, many Virgos make an effort to stay physically fit. If they are convinced that results can be achieved, they don’t mind tedious exercise routines. They enjoy tennis, racquetball, swimming, sailing, fishing, and biking. As athletes, Virgos are not overly competitive. Most of them do however, attempt to perfect whatever skills they do have in a particular sport. They are likely to be talented craftsman, seamstresses, or designers, and may have particular interest in such things as cartography, travel, and philately.

Virgo colors are blue, yellow, gray, tan, navy, and lilac. Vulnerable parts of the body are the sinuses, respiratory system, and bowels. Colds, flu, allergies, and constipation are common Virgo complaints. The sapphire, which is a variety of the mineral corundum, is Virgo’s birthstone. This gem was considered by ancient societies as a love charm. Though they come in a variety of colors and can even be transparent, the most valuable sapphires are blue. Blue is also the principal color associated with Virgo. Flowers and plants for Virgo include the aster, chrysanthemum, ivy, and fern.

*Planting Day

** Lammas (Lughnasadh) Celebration of the Harvest. Modern times make appreciation for harvest difficult, but back in the day, people’s livelihood was based on their crops. The harvest meant everything, and today marks the day of the traditional celebration of harvest, when people were able to reep the rewards of the seeds they’d planted in spring, and the laboring they’ve done through the summer to tend to their crops.

Today’s Tarot: Four of Pentacles, Inverted
Today’s Fairy Oracle: Making New Friends, Inverted

Thursday:
*Governed by Jupiter – expansion, money, prosperity, generosity (ties right in to today’s tarot card!)

Color:
*Green

The Moon:
*1st Quarter Waxing in Libra; Void-of-Course @ 4:01 a.m. US Central; Enters Scorpio @ 6:26 a.m. US Central

Waxing Moon: Waxing moon is where the moon is growing in the sky. Each night for two full weeks she grows in light, getting bigger and bigger in the sky until she reaches full moon. During the two weeks that the moon is waxing, it’s the best time for trying to draw things to you, encourage growth, or to “magnify” certain things in your life. Want your nails to grow longer? File them while the moon is waxing. Want your hair to grow faster? Trim it during waxing moon. Want to increase your finances? Focus your energies on improving finances during waxing moon. Waxing moon is the best time for starting new things, seeking new employment, or establishing “gain” in any area of your life (but remember, the zodiac position of the moon is also influencial, so reference where the moon is in the zodiac prior to working any magick).

When the moon is waxing, we feel more positive, more energized, more outgoing.

*Moon in Libra: Favors cooperation, compromise, social activities, balance, friendship, and partnership

*Moon Void-of-Course: Just before the Moon enters a new sign, it will make one final aspect (angular relationship) to another planet. Between that last aspect and the entrance of the Moon into the next sign it is said to be void-of-course. Activities begun when the Moon is void-of-course rarely come to fruition, or they turn out very differently than planned.

*Moon in Scorpio: Increases awareness of psychic power. Precipitates psychic crises and ends connections thoroughly. People have a tendency to brood and become secretive.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
Be self-centered in a professional sense — focus on things that help your career.

Overview
Watch out for ego conflicts today — and you might be one of the fighters! Your ability to sidestep delicate dramas is tested, so be ready for an onslaught of folks with nothing better to do.

Daily Extended
At work, now is the time for you to be a model employee in every sense of the word — important people are keeping an eye on you! So resist the urge to goof off when you have some free time. If you can, go back and double check your work to make sure you’ve covered all the details. Become self-centered in a professional sense — you should only pay attention to things today that will help you or your career. Gossiping or laughing do not make the cut.

Daily Flirt:
You’re proud of yourself, and with good reason, but you’ve still got to deal with some serious weirdness today — maybe folks are starting to ask stupid questions. Just roll your eyes and move on.

Daily Couples:
You seem to know intuitively just what to do to make your honey feel special. They may not even realize they’re giving you signs, but you’re picking them up and responding with just what they need.

Daily Singles:
When you find yourself attracted to someone new, watch for plotters in your midst. There could be a jealous pal who’d rather you stay single than couple up with another person. Be compassionate but hold your ground.

Daily Career:
Being thorough is easier than it seems. Don’t waste time looking too deeply. The answers you need for these particular issues are just beneath the surface.
