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 improvement.

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, compassionate lover.

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 romantic creature?

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 offer!

The Hermit in the Tarot


The Hermit in the Tarot is associated with Virgo.

~ 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 way.

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 - all alone.

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....

The Outer Planets - Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and the Lunar Nodes
~^. .^~


Uranus in Pisces! ... Uranus will stay in the Sign of the Fish 'til 2011! Spiritual Revolution you say?? Yes, that would describe it well. What can we expect with Uranus in Pisces? Perhaps our ideas about death, sacrifice, the fantastic and impossible, transcendence and service to humanity will take some dramatic and innovative turns. We can hope that humanitarianism will take on new meaning and purpose, and that service to others may become a more integral part of our social order. With this placement, Uranus can become quite reclusive or fanatical. Scientists who may have been hiding out for years in research can bring new and surprising inventions and discoveries into our midst, and Political Messiahs may come out of the woodwork. With Uranus and Neptune in mutual reception - they will rely upon each other more than usual, and herald perhaps a renewed and revolutionary (Uranus) vision for humanity (Neptune) The cost may be a certain amount of turmoil and confusion regarding just where we are going for humanity, and will probably not be without conflict.

Neptune in Aquarius (til 2012) is helping to set our expressions of love and creativity into positive, innovative motion. A change in the prevailing style in movies, fashion and art will be seen in the months and years to come - probably bringing much more in the realm of the unusual, shocking, rebellious, and inter-cultural.

Pluto is in Capricorn now until 2024. The very fabric of society may begin to be re-woven - but not before old structures are dismantled. Capricorn is about authority, success, achievement and social order. Pluto is about death and regeneration. Pluto asks us to dig deep and USE what is best in our world to create something much better. We need to avail ourselves of and share our brightest and most humanistic minds (Uranus in Pisces, Neptune in Aquarius!!), and not descend into blind destructiveness, greed or desperation.

The powerful Neptune/Pluto septile, exact on Dec 1, 2006 and Feb. 21, 2007 will last (going in and out of close orb) into 2011! For those of us who are very creative, tremendous inspiration can bring influential, explosive, mind-blowing creations. In love - the potential for making inspired changes is heightened - yet there also exists the possibility of getting lost in confusion. Avoid falling into a pit of despair, or indulging in self-destructive activities. Getting nowhere fast? Look for Creative and Healthy, Inspired, Loving outlets to save your skin! Get involved in helping others.... this is especially important now! Neptune/Pluto can bring a fanaticism wthat has not been seen since the last such aspect at the beginning of WWII. Yet - this aspect is also very positive for creating lasting, humanitarian changes throughout the world.

From 8/22 to 3/4/2011, the North & South Nodes are on the Capricorn/Cancer axis, bringing a focus on relationships that help us to achieve our goals, do our very best, and encourage us to honor our teachers, supporters and mentors. As we enter this phase, take time to remember ancestors and to acknowledge valued family members, yet to let go of those memories and belongings that no longer serve us. Reach out with enthusiasm for new opportunities that may present themselves!

Chiron in Aquarius... This archetype of human compassion will be passing nonstop through Aquarius from January 06 til Feb. 2011, bringing a period of higher inspiration in the realm of healing. We may look forward to greater cooperation worldwide in the healing sciences, and perhaps going back to tradition - those time honored ways that our ancestors enjoyed and practiced in harmony with nature. Perhaps we may find more and more "health" foods (ie unaltered and unprocessed) on our grocery shelves, greater acceptance of mind-body healing approaches, and some brave new ideas to surface, too.

Tour of the Planets!

Mewsings from Venus & Mars... September 2009

Mars enters Cancer & Venus enters Leo 8/26-27, bringing a focus on family and social groups - a great time for organizing and planning for the future. Beware of overly protective attitudes that can lead to misunderstandings or alienation, and remember to honor and value your loved ones! Mars in Cancer ('til 10/16), can be particularly overbearing, and might also contribute to nationalistic fervor, however with the Mars/Pluto opposition nearly over - hostilities should be easing.

Venus is in Virgo from 9/20 to 10/14, bringing greater focus on the little details of life - especially as they pertain to beauty and pleasant relationships. Try to avoid nitpicking, and instead put plans in place in your mind, and follow through with love and devotion!


During the first week in September, Neptune/Jupiter/Chiron are still conjunct in Aquarius, septile Pluto, and all retrograde, while Mars opposes Pluto (leaving) bringing mostly internally felt healing realizations, openness to inspiration and new possibilities, and expansion of our connectedness in love. Take time to reflect on and feel gratitude for what you have gained these last months, and communicate carefully to avoid blowups that can lead to abrupt relationship changes.

The second week Saturn opposes Uranus while Venus opposes Jupiter/Neptune/Chiron,-bringing potential clashes between the forces of idealism/change and the status quo. Those who would challenge authority are advised to think well and follow through only on those plans that are sure not to backfire.

During the third week, Mars quintiles Saturn while Venus trines Pluto and octiles Mars, bringing increased energy for working out those relationship bugs and irritations that can destroy a good team. It is advisable to listen and share with love, and with openness to change.

During the 4th week, Venus in Virgo biquintiles and Saturn trines the North Node, which is good for anyone looking for a long-term partner and/or a whorthwhile creative project. Follow your instincts, and go for the gold!

~ The Big Guys ~

Jupiter is in Aquarius til 1/18/2010. Lucky, expansive Jupiter will be crossing and re- crossing Chiron and Neptune during 2009, helping to bring us new ideas in spirituality, religious openness, tolerance and healing forms of justice.

Saturn in Virgo 'til July 21, 2010 brings our focus to the things of the earth.. the cleanliness and purity of our physical environment. These coming years can bring a stronger sense of purpose and responsibility within our social institutions, government and from authority figures regarding the sanctity and protection of our mother earth. A wonderful time this can be!! Let's make conscious guardianship of our world the central focus for all we do!
