The traffic jam energies of last month's Cardinal Cross should be abating. Choices were made, new paths taken, old lives/loves left and fresh visions created. We will continue to feel the reverberations of this incredible astrological lineup for months to come as they lead us to 2012.
We begin the month looking back over the last two years of Saturn in Virgo (where we learned the power/challenge of unequal dynamics), courtesy of Mercury (planet of communication) still retrograding in Virgo until September 12th. As mentioned last month, Virgo energy focuses on detail, patterns, perfecting, analyzing. We will continue to rework, recapture or recalibrate some finishing touches on the lessons regarding structure, lifestyle, mind/body balance, discretion and discrimination.
Depending on your sign, you may realize this was the one missing link in your drama:
ARIES--integrating a more balanced approach to your work life
TAURUS--the need to use discretion and objectivity when vetting partners or collaborators
GEMINI--you realize you inherited the self-loathing gene from your mom
CANCER--the awareness that obsessing about others (particularly friends or siblings) makes you sick
LEO--you are overly critical regarding your talents, ease up, you are a natural creator
VIRGO--God loves you in your perfect imperfection
LIBRA--you are more anal than you let on, you can let go
SCORPIO--some of your friends think too small for your current tastes and level of development
SAGITTARIUS--delays at work helped you to get a better grasp on the project/job at hand
CAPRICORN--religious conditioning included a strong dose of guilt, throw it out
AQUARIUS--you overanalyze partners' motives, they think you're awesome
PISCES--you no longer countenance an unequal romantic partnership
Our continuing Pluto in Capricorn story focuses our energies on becoming a mature adult who takes care of business even if she feels not up to the task. Sure, you can go home and eat a pint of Hagendaz if you must (this is the baby Cancer in all of us), but the world expects you to still take on a role of leadership.
Pluto stationing direct on September 14th shows you where you need to take charge: (This will be somewhat related to the fallout of the last month)
ARIES--in your work performance, you have leadership potential
TAURUS--in opening your mind to more expansive ideas
GEMINI--allowing the full flowering of your sexuality
CANCER--in dealing with powerful relationship dynamics
LEO--in responsibly handling the daily vissitudes of life
VIRGO--making sure you get into bed with the right people romantically and creatively
LIBRA--you are the new head of household in your family of
