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:

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.

The Sun:
Virgo, The Virgin

The Principle of Discernment and Boundaries

Element-Earth
Quality-Mutable
Symbol-The Virgin
Sun Sign Dates-August 24 to September 23
Planetary Ruler-Mercury
Natural Zodiac Affinity-Sixth House

Virgo has a mission. The mission of Virgo is to separate what is useful from that which is not useful. This is called discernment. This is a sign that needs to feel a sense of usefulness and purpose. Someone needs to create order from chaos. They’ve earned a reputation for being too critical. Don’t take their criticism personally. Everyone and everything is subject to the same scrutiny. Those who are comfortable in chaos will not last long around Virgo. Their perfectionist drive comes from their innermost being. They may seem picky and uptight to other people but the reason why Virgo can get so uptight is because theirs is a never-ending job. There is always work to be done and so much of it is not fully appreciated by other people. Remember, Virgo has a large contribution to make to the world. Do you want your dentist to be a slob? Do you want to sleep on unchanged sheets in a hotel room? Do you care if the cook washes his hands? Virgo has taken on the job of worry and concern over the everyday duties that actually make life liveable in so many unseen ways. Virgo is the civilizing effect on mankind.

Virgo is into reality. They don’t dream about what is possible- they do it. If the five senses cannot detect it, then what use is that? Virgo has a talent for logical analysis. Virgo and Gemini are both ruled by Mercury. Virgo sorts through the Gemini function which takes in everything. It sorts through it and files away that which may be used later if necessary then tosses out that which has no use. Pure Virgo energy always knows where the scissors are. A place for everything and everything in it’s place. If you won’t do it, then they will. Virgo likes to help. It’s a service-oriented sign.

Thank a Virgo today for being humble enough to do what needs to be done. For taking the time to fuss over the small details which enhance the quality of life in so many practical ways.

Pure Virgo energy is….
* an instinctive talent for analyzing things in a logical manner
* creating order from chaos
* leans towards worry and concern
* seeking perfection
* geared towards getting the job done
* wants to feel useful
* fact oriented-leans towards skepticism until proven
* usually feels that “cleanliness is next to godliness.”
* a lot of mental anxiety over outcomes
* detail oriented
* learning to draw boundaries and to say, “no”
* the craftsman/craftswoman

*Neither planting or harvest day

Today’s Tarot: Six of Swords
Today’s Fairy Oracle: Vizualization, Inverted

Sunday:
Governed by the Sun – Healing, spirituality, success, strength, protection

Colors:
yellow, orange, gold, amber

The Moon:
Second quarter waxing in Sagittarius

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 Sagittarius: *Encourages confidence and flights of imagination. This is an adventurous, philosophical, and athletic Moon sign. Favors expansion and growth. (Ties in well with today’s Tarot and Fairy Oracle, dontchya think?)

The Sun:
Leo, The Lion

The Sun Rules the Sign of Leo

  • On the downside: You may have a heavy ego, and you can be arrogant, vain, and extravagant.
  • Your good qualities include: A strong vitality, honorable, creative, generous, dignified.
  • Developing your own self identity and mode of creative energy expression will be your ongoing life’s work.

Leo has a great deal of self confidence but they also have a great fear of being ridiculed and made to feel disgraced. While Leo is very affectionate there is a tendency to have things their way and may rapidly lose interest if they are challenged too often for the leading role. They will have to learn to discipline themselves against their overall enthusiasm for living life to the fullest, which is to say, dangerously on the edge. The creative urge in Leos should never be stifled as to do so a good deal of potential will be wasted.

Leos are found as painters, actors, or sculptors; but not all Leos are in the public arts, no, rather they can be found in the throes of creation doing their projects on the kitchen table. They have an infectious vitality that lights up their lives like an inner sun and illuminates not only their lives, but the lives of those around them. Lack of fulfillment in life, professionally or personally, can destroy these bright and shinning people and cloud their personalities.Leos need control in their lives to be really satisfied so organization is absolutely essential to their peace of mind.

A leo should cultivate a flexible mind as they do not always ‘know best’.

Only when this trait is cultivated can the characteristic Leonine warmth, generosity, and desire to really understand others be fully indulged.

The lions love and adore children as they bring out the inner child. Leos are surprisingly sensitive and easily hurt, but they do have a tendency to dominate and this should never be underestimated. It is always meant well as they only want to bring out the best in the people they care about, or work with. They also tend toward impatience and they should make curbing these traits a lifelong objective. Born leaders, they can take command of a situation in any emergency and see it through to its completion. The enthusiams they acquired in childhood will generally last a lifetime and may even dictate the career one would choose.

They can be too status conscious, causing themselves much anguish when, or if, they cannot keep up with others in their immediate circle. They can also be quite overbearing and vain when they feel they are being challenged. On the other hand, the lions make great lovers and parents, giving more to a relationship than most of the other signs. They are good honorable persons and good providers.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Today, you should focus on meeting people and on building some new relationships.

Overview
Change is in the air and you’re enjoying what you see. It’s a good time to take the lead and try to steer things in a direction that you find more amenable. Your friends look to you for answers.

Daily Extended
Today, you should focus on meeting people and on building new relationships — your current ones are all doing well enough to be left alone for a while. You have the right amount of curiosity for what makes other people tick right now, and you know just the right questions to ask. Plus, your easygoing manner will help them loosen up and really be themselves. So if you’re torn between hanging out with an old friend or going to a gathering where you can meet someone new, opt for the newness.

Daily Flirt:
Sometimes, one little change can have a huge impact — and you’re right tin the middle of one! It’s pretty sweet to see your life rearrange itself, and you can tell that it’s almost all for the best!

Daily Couples:
You’ve got the travel bug, and you’ve got it bad! Spend some time pouring over the travel section of the paper with your sweetie and start planning that dream vacation together.

Daily Singles:
Pursuing someone new can be thrilling and scary at the same time. While you desire a totally fiery romance, take your time exploring what turns them on and off. There’s no rush to get to the finish line. Enjoy discovering where their passion lies.

Career & Finance:
Everyone needs a pat on the back every once in a while. If you saw someone slacking off you wouldn’t mince words. So don’t hold back on the praise, either. In fact, be downright magnanimous with it.

Source: http://shine.yahoo.com/astrology/

The horoscope aligns quite nicely with today’s Tarot card, including the need for travel!

Other Planetary Shifts:
Mercury enters Virgo at 5:51 a.m. US Central

Mercury in Virgo gives an intelligent, strong, versatile and analytical mind with great powers to attend to detail. You have a good memory and the ability to think practically and constructively. Your mental disposition is well-suited to demanding intellectual work and you may find success in fields such as science, teaching, administration or in jobs requiring detailed analytical ability. There is some predisposition to nervous excitement, headaches and needless worry over trivial matters.

Source: http://www.astrologyweekly.com/learn-astrology/mercury-in-virgo.php

With Mercury in Virgo you’re practical, logical, quick, precise, and have fine attention to detail as well as good common sense. Although Mercury rules Virgo and is thus strongly placed in this sign of discrimination, you must not forget that the world you live in is governed by emotions, prejudice and self-interest, not by logic. Be careful of getting bogged down on the small stuff or criticism in your relationships. You tend to be honest and a good speaker, but also intolerant of minds that are not as good as your own.

Mercury will enter its own sign and exaltation, Virgo, on August 10th. This is great news for Mercury, which has been in a relatively weak position since it left Gemini in early July. But Mercury could not be any happier than it is in Virgo, a mutable/double earth sign, where the Trickster gets to apply all he’s learned to the real world. Mercury is right at home in mundane affairs, indeed. The only problem is that he rarely looks at the big picture, so busy is he running to and fro.

Six of Swords

Six of Swords

Swords represent the element of air, thought and intillect and are therefore represented by Mercury (which may be relevent according to this morning’s correspondences as Mercury shifts into the sign of Virgo at 5:51 a.m. US Central time, approximately one hour from now. Incidentally, Mercury is Virgo’s ruling planet, so it’s a “homecoming” of sorts cosmically speaking. I’ve a lot to learn yet about the dance of the planets, so just ’cause I’m stating the facts does not mean I know exactly what it means *smirk*). 

Although represented by swords and thought, the image in the Six of Swords card shows three people in a boat traveling by water, and water represents emotions.  Could it be time to change the way I think about how I feel? How am I navigating the journey where thoughts and feelings merge? Perhaps it’s time to be led by the mind instead of the heart, or to find a way for the two to peacefully merge. Mercury, Virgo, and Swords indicate a more analytical energy.

There’s a change of direction in this card, if not a physical relocation or journey, then a complete change in perspective.  Now is the time to navigate, to take control, to “row the boat to shore”.  Because there are two additional people in this card, it indicates a sense of responsibility, an awareness that the actions taken by the quarrent will have consequences that affect others.

This makes me think of what I’d written last night about making sure my children feel secure and as though they’re on solid ground after such a difficult year of change.

Sixes represent the ability to reach above and beyond what seems like reality in order to tap into a higher source of strength, inspiration, and universal wisdom.  The round belly of a six represents the earth, and the arm extending beyond that round belly is the quarrent’s ability to reach out to the heavens and grab a handful of magick to bring down to earth.

Here’s what the sources say:

From Solitary Witch: Book of Shadows for the Next Generation by Silver Raven Wolf:

Moving away from illness, pain, or sorrow; recovery; taking action to overcome one’s problems; better times ahead so keep going; a journey often planned due to unhappy circumstances; the need to “get away”.

Here’s from LearnTarot.com:

feeling the blues
experiencing a low-level sadness
just keeping your head above water
working to get through the day
feeling somewhat depressed
avoiding the lows, but also the highs
feeling listless
functioning, but not much more 
recovering
dealing with the effects of trauma
getting over a tough time
picking up the pieces
starting to cope
beginning to get your health back
heading toward a more positive place
feeling hope again 
traveling
changing location
moving from one place to another
taking a trip
experiencing a change of scene
being uprooted
going on a journey
entering into a new frame of mind

At one point in The Pilgrim’s Progress, the hero Christian (who is also on a Fool’s Journey) becomes mired in the Slough of Despond. He struggles for a time until drawn out by Help. Help tells him that “…many fears, and doubts, and discouraging apprehensions…settle in this place.”

The Slough of Despond is a good name for the Six of Swords. Sometimes this card represents a dull, listless state. Nothing is seriously wrong, but nothing is really right either. You’re getting by, but not thriving. In the picture the figures in the boat seem sad and disengaged. Life is indeed uninteresting when we feel the blues.

In a more positive vein, the Six of Swords can indicate recovery. This is especially true when you have just experienced a tough time or psychological blow. During the crisis, you felt numb and disconnected; nothing mattered at all. Now you are beginning to heal and pick up the pieces of your life. The travelers in our boat are at least moving forward. They are headed toward a new place, even if they are not yet ready to eagerly embrace those shores.

In fact, the Six of Swords can indicate travel and moves of all kinds. This could mean an actual change of scene, relocation or trip, but not necessarily. A journey can also take place on the inner planes as we move from one frame of mind to another.

Although the Six of Swords does not promise great joy, it also avoids the depths of despair. A slough is not a bottomless pit, but simply a hollow or depression. When you see this card, know that even though the situation is not ideal, you are moving toward a more positive place. Change is in the air, and new, more hopeful conditions lie ahead.

And from Aeclectic Tarot:

SIXES

Sixes are balance and harmony, especially after the upsets of the fives. These cards predict a solution, and not just any solution; there will be an exchange, a give and take that results in a new equilibrium. It may not last, but for that moment, everything is stable. With this card, there is an almost “Ah-HA!” of recognition, of understanding in the solution, and more than a little awe at the symmetry achieved by it.

If you connect the sixes to the Lovers card you’ll see how it works. The “love” aspect of the Lovers card is that of recognition and equilibrium. Like Gemini, you recognize your twin, your soul mate. Maybe you didn’t even know how uneven, how lopsided your life was, but now that you’ve met this person, you can feel the scales coming into balance. Here is harmony. Here is the solution.

Six of Swords

A boat of swords being ferried across a river with a woman as passenger. The classic Rider-Waite meaning is that one is leaving difficulties behind. A trip or change of scene may be the answer to restoring balance here. But there is more to it than this. In relation to the mind, ideas and words of the sword suit, this is also about finding a solution to math problems and brain twisters, not just troubles. The ferryman may signal help here, a silent partner (a reference book or internet website perhaps?) who helps you row your way toward the other shore…and THERE is the answer, a way to make your idea, your argument, your formula work smoothly, perfectly, beautifully. Also, of course, a card about trips by boat.

Clinging and unable to let go

The Cancerian character is the least clear-cut of all those associated with the signs of the zodiac. It can range from the timid, dull, shy and withdrawn to the most brilliant, and famous Cancerians are to be found through the whole range of human activity. It is a fundamentally conservative and home-loving nature, appreciating the nest like quality of a secure base to which the male can retire when he needs a respite from the stresses of life, and in which the Cancerian woman can exercise her strong maternal instincts. The latter tends to like and to have a large family. `Nest like’ is an appropriate adjective for the Cancerian home, for its inhabitants tend to favor the dark, mysterious but comfortable type of house which has something of the air of a den about it, a place which belongs to the family rather than existing as a showcase to impress visitors.
That is not to say that the Cancerian is unsociable, just that for them there is a time to socialize and a time to be solitary, and this is part of the apparent contradiction in their nature. Outwardly they can appear formidable – thick-skinned, unemotional, uncompromising, obstinately tenacious, purposeful, energetic, shrewd, intuitive and wise, sometimes with a philosophical profundity of thought verging on inspiration. Their intimates, however, may see a very different character, one with a sympathetic and kindly sensitivity to other people, especially those they love. They are able to identify with the situations of others because of the keenness of their imaginations. They are often over-imaginative and prone to fantasy, sometimes trying to shape their lives to fit some romantic ideal. They are appreciative of art and literature, and especially of drama, where the spectacle and ebb and flow of action and feeling particularly excite them. They may themselves possess considerable literary, artistic or oratorical talent. Their sharp ears and talent for mimicry can sometimes give them success on the stage, though their tendency to be emotional may make them overact. Interestingly – because they give the impression of being down-to-earth – they are often fascinated by the occult and are more open to psychic influence than the average. If they can reconcile the personal conflict of their urge to be outgoing with the reserve that causes them to withdraw into themselves, then at best they can inspire a generation, especially the youthful part of it, by their idealism. A job in which they can express this, and in which they can do well, would be as a leader in a youth organization.

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie
You should adhere to more conservative ideas. Be aware that people may be lying.

Overview
On most days, you live life the way you want to and try not to worry too much about what other people think. Today, though, you can tell that things are more delicate and require greater discretion.

Daily Extended
Overview
You should adhere to more conservative ideas today. Play things safe, and don’t be too generous with too many people, even the ones you think deserve your generosity. You might think you have a lot of time and resources right now, but give things a second glance this afternoon — you’ll notice that you really can’t afford to spread things around too much. Forget about your idea to take someone out to lunch, and trim back your budget for that friend’s birthday present.

Daily Flirt:
Let someone else be the life of the party — you’d rather kick back and enjoy watching the proceedings, or just chat with someone cute. Your energy levels should pick right back up in another day or so.

Daily Couples:
The urge to save your pennies has overtaken you, and you’ve been remarkably disciplined. Give yourself a little break from being thrifty, and treat yourself and your partner to a little something special.

Daily Singles:
You’re not impulsive type. Having a Plan B, C and D is usually your style. While being overly prepared comes in handy when everyone else seems to flounder, you could come off as rigid and controlling. Give in to a little spontaneity once in awhile.

Career & Finance:
It’s all about finances, today. If you’re out of ideas for whittling away at the budget, come up with a new strategy altogether. Being more thrifty than usual just won’t do the trick.

Natural Zodiac Affinity-Third House

Geminis enjoy a variety of interests. They are usually very curious and open minded. Gemini likes different people, places, things and experiences. This makes them very versatile people. Gemini likes the smorgasbord of life. A little of this, a little of that. They want to try and taste it all. Can you see why they’ve earned the reputation for being so changeable? This not to say that a Gemini will never master anything. They will. But, the rest of us can only wonder how they find the time to get their fingers into so many different pies. It’s because Gemini has a low loyalty quotient for anything they’ve already tried. If they took everything to great depth, this would narrow the playing field too much.

As an Air sign Gemini is not cut out for the heavy side of life. Others view this trait as too fickle; their worst trait. Gemini is also capable of more than one so-called “loyalty”.
Gemini is expressive and clever. Gemini loves to share any new found knowledge. Gemini can become easily bored if things become too routine. They get restless if there is nothing new to stimulate their mind. If a project is seen as too boring they have hard time disciplining themselves to finish it. They thrive on change and they need lots of mental cookies to chew on.

Gemini energy can be likened to that of a chameleon in some respects. They can change colors depending on what the occasion calls for. A neat talent, really. Their wide variety of experiences allows them to be able to identify with several different viewpoints. They actually understand the Buddhist because they tried meditation once. They can really relate to the Hindu because they didn’t eat meat for a whole week. See how this works? This is the famous Gemini dual nature playing itself out. Gemini teaches us to open our minds and explore the world around us-ever searching for new knowledge and experiences.

Pure Gemini energy is….
* changeable
* capable of more than one loyalty
* fickle
* curious about life
* wants to learn a little about everything
* open-minded
* very communicative
* easily bored
* a mental approach
* a youthful attitude

Today’s Horoscope for Leo:

Quickie:
You might find yourself in an introverted mood — listen to your inner thoughts.

Overview:
You’ve reached a new height — though can see new peaks and challenges ahead, so life shouldn’t get too boring. It may be a good time to take a rest and enjoy the view while waiting for others to catch up.

Daily Extended:
Today you might find yourself in an introverted mood as the day gets started — you won’t be too interested in connecting with other people until later on in the day when you’re feeling more confident. You’ve got to ask yourself what you want out of one of your newer relationships, and in order to find the answer, you need to think. No one else can tell you what you want — asking people what they think about your situation will only confuse you, so don’t bother. (Damn if that doesn’t hit the nail right on the head!!)

Daily Flirt:
Your gigantic heart is beating like a kick drum today, and while it might be distracting for a bit, you can tell that it’s a beacon to all the right people. Help those who can’t help themselves!

Daily Couples:
The love you feel for your sweetie is almost overwhelming at times, and you feel like making a grand gesture to express how you feel. Have fun, and remember it’s the feeling behind it, not the money you spend.

Daily Singles:
Do you have dating strategy or are you simply winging it? Even though it’s fun to not know what might happen next, you should at least have a few backup plans just in case.

Career & Finance:
You don’t call yourself lion-hearted for nothing. Your view of yourself as courageous can be overblown at times, but today it’s really valid. Flexing your muscles will bring plenty of glory.
