|How to Treat your Virgo
Your Virgo is an Earth Angel, a swift, intelligent Mercury
without wings, a dynamically aware work-force. She
notices everything. He is hyper-awake.
Virgo, though unassuming, kind and shy, is one of the
strongest signs in the Zodiac. This is intelligent
earthiness - discerning practicality - a strong yet
gentle kindness and nurturing born of sheer common
sense. Your Virgo strives to be a model of perfection.
She loves to please you! He is driven to impress you
with his talent for making the most out of the best!
Mercury's other child, Gemini, is a much more
lighthearted, air-born spirit. While Gemini is busy
gathering so much knowledge, Virgo insists on action
and wants to know what will be done with the
information at hand. The question is always - "of what
practical use is this?" A master at taking things apart
and analyzing them - Virgo always finds room for
So how can you possibly impress one who sees and
knows so much? How can you hide your imperfections?
What will you do when YOU are the object of her keen
observation? You must be a strong spirit to be with
Virgo - both hard working and emotionally tough. You
will be happiest with your Virgo if you are one who
appreciates purity, discernment and a logical mind; and
spurns the superfluous.
Feed your Virgo with uncluttered surroundings, a
practical, frugal budget and pure, beautiful speech.
Make healthful foods a priority. Take the trash out
often. Iron your clothes. Ask your Virgo for help - Virgo
lives to serve! Remind your Virgo how much you
appreciate his careful choices. Tell her how impressed
you are with her impeccable taste and well thought out
advice. Make her a part of your life-improvement team!
You will be rewarded with an eternal help-mate, and a
devoted, down-to-earth, sensual, soft-hearted,

|How to Treat your Libra
Your lovely Libra man or maiden longs to walk side by
side with you through life. "Alone" is not in Libra's
bountiful vocabulary, nor is "lonely." A life of solitude is
just not acceptible, and if your Libra does not feel
sufficiently loved, you're sure to hear about it one way
or another. If she doesn't find you sitting lovestruck by
her side, she'll be fluttering her lashes at the nearest
handsome beau, or lavishing gifts upon herself to feel
sufficiently adored. If he finds you unattentive or
yawning at his words, he will undoubtedly start flirting
with the nearest skirt!
Libra is a child of Venus, and will not hesitate to use all
the charms the goddess of love possesses in order to
get what she wants. Beauty, grace, wit, style and all
the wiles of a temptress or temptor are at your Libra's
command. How can you possibly hold onto such a
First of all, you must be fair with your Libra. She is
highly aware of balance and harmony in all things and
can detect the slightest hint of inequity. And be open -
your Libra is so focused on YOU that he can surely read
your mind anyway. It's especially helpful, too, if you are
appreciative of all things beautiful - music, art and
people - (especially your Venusian Prince or Princess!).
Or if art doesn't grab you, your mind must be active
and entertaining enough to keep your Libra interested
in everything you have to say. Then again, if you are a
terrific lover, you can forget about the rest!
The bottom line is, feed your Libra's insatiable need for
beauty, love and partnership and you're home free. You
can get away with criticism if it's done with a hilarious
sense of humor. You can get away with flirting if you
flirt doubly (make that triply) with your Libra. And you
can get away with boredom if you lavish your Libra with
anything pleasing to the senses. It's as simple as that!
Help your Libra with making decisions. Participate in his
schemes. Make loving suggestions while she is
decorating or dressing. But most of all, make sure your
Libra feels adored - and you will be rewarded with one
of the most charming, generous, beautiful, handsome,
intelligent, witty and doting mates the Zodiac has to

|The Hermit in the Tarot
Virgo is associated with the Hermit in
~ Following the Light ~
The Hermit travels alone through life. He is either
oblivious to, or doesn't concern himself with how others
perceive him. This one is a light unto his own.
The Hermit follows a distinct inner vision. He has a sure
and well defined path to follow. This soul knows exactly
where he is headed and possibly even what he will find
there - and he doesn't necessarily need any
companions, or even approval - except perhaps from
whomever or whatever he holds highest in his heart.
In my favorite Tarot book, (which I can't
find -!!), the author defines the hermit as one who
follows the "straight and narrow path" This is my
preferred way of reading this card. Chances are -
unless the Hermit falls between two very ominous
cards - the path the Hermit chooses is the highest and
most clear-visioned path one is capable of. In other
words... although perhaps unyielding to outside
influence, the Hermit doesn't hurt people, lie or make a
mess of things. He proceeds through life's challenges
with great focus, and the purest of intentions.
Sometimes the Hermit represents you, and sometimes
another person serving as a Guide for you. Unlike the
Heirophant or Priestess, though - this is a guide who is
willing to stand well outside of the usual boundaries -
apart from tradition or conformity, and quietly lead the
In a much simpler context, perhaps the Hermit portrays
a situation in which you are completely on your own.
There is no partner, nobody to consult with. This is
your life - and you must do what you must do! A lonely
guy or gal? Perhaps - but we all need solitude
sometimes, and sometimes even for a long time. And in
the grand scheme of things, except for that guiding
light of Love we all hold so dear - we are each indeed -
In yet another scenario (again assuming that
surrounding cards support this) - the Hermit can
indicate that things are going along as planned. The
scenario you are concerned with remains aligned with
your wishes and your ultimate goals.
On a very personal level, this card asks you - what
exactly is your path? What light are you following? Is it
your own, or something pre-designed by society? In all
likelihood, it is a combination of both - but whatever it
may be - it is certainly your own, and you alone are
responsible for your choices....

|Check out My Space!!
Yes, I have finally made it into Space!!
Space that is... I have these wonderful, talented
neices and nephew who are in a band - Pilot's
and I am shamelessly promoting them - because I can -
and more importantly, because they're great! Also, I
need friends. HUGS to all my friends! If you don't have
a "my space" space, that's okay - you're still my friend!
Thanks for looking, and enjoy the music!

|Mewsings from Venus & Mars... September 2006
Mars in Virgo - 'til Sept. 8 is a fine-
tuned, precision instrument. He knows what he wants
and how he wants it, and he will certainly notice if
anything is amiss. This is a hard-working Mars, a man of
principle and honor. If you see the best in a man while
Mars is in this placement, he's more likely to live up to
Venus in Leo 'til Sept. 6 may clash
some with Mars in Virgo. She is yearning to look her
best, speak her heart, and take charge! However, Mars
in Virgo may dwell on her imperfections, and this won't
go over well. If you must make demands of your lover,
gals - be specific, tell him what you want and how you
want it. Feed his ego - tell him how good he is at what
he does, and he'll be more likely to pamper you -
attending to all the little details that tingle the senses
and make your cares disappear like so much dust in the
wind. Enjoy nature together, and family. Work on
perfecting things around the house - not each other.
Women may be particularly shiny and attractive while
Venus is in Leo. Guys - give them the praise,
compliments and loving attention they need, and enjoy
Venus in Virgo - Sept. 6 to 30 is a
particular in love. If she's content, she'll be into fixing
up her spaces. If she's not, she'll be into fixing up her
people. If you are in need of fixing, maybe it's a good
idea to work on fixing yourself, and avoid being noticed!
She is sure to be very attentive, kind and helpful. Make
sure she feels appreciated, too!
Mars in Libra - Sept. 8 to Oct. 23 is a
diplomatic general, hell-bent on seeing things work out.
He'll go the extra mile to balance and smooth out every
situation, and may therefore seem wish-washy, non-
commital or downright traitorous. While tarzan feels
he's seeing the forest, she (Venus in Virgo!) may think
he's missing the trees. Everyone will be happy though if
we work hard to appreciate the little things and the big
things too. Most of all, see the good intentions behind
every word, and act accordingly - with kindness and
