2018 Sun visits Virgo- Aug 23- 12.09 am EDT to Sept 22- 9.54 pm EDT
On the ego level Virgo analyzes, problem solves, and seeks solutions. It strives for perfection. That is the influence of its traditional ruler Mercury (logical thinking). But we see Virgo as The Rainbow Bridge of Healing into Wholeness. Spiritually Virgo is the guide who offers us mind, body, spirit healing and integration. Her astrological symbol is the Virgin, at oneness within. Her lineage is the Temple Priestesses. Virgo is also linked to heath and alternative healing therapies. While the Sun (heath and vitality) visits here we may want to explore those spiritual healing modalities that restore our balance.
During the Sun’s visit to Virgo we have a lot of planetary shifts so it is time of transition. We mentioned Virgo’s traditional ruler is Mercury (our thoughts, perceptions, and communication style). He has just come out of his retrograde journey in Leo (the ego or the heart guiding us). For many of us it was a challenging time (July 26 to Aug 19). He leaves his retrograde shadow on Sept 02 and enters Virgo on Sept 05 where he remains until Sept 21/22. Mercury will support us on our journey of Healing into Wholeness by uniting mind, body, and spirit. Our other planetary guides while the sun visits Virgo are Chiron, the healer, and Vesta at oneness within and commitment to being of spiritual service.
Chiron is currently retrograde in Aries, healing wounds of rejection, betrayal and abandonment. Those can be wounds we inflict on ourselves. Chiron in Aries reminds us we are our own healers and as we heal ourselves we are supported by the Universe. Vesta is the keeper of the Divine Flame that exists in all things. She is currently in Sagittarius and supports us to expand our commitment to our spiritual vision. Vesta will be aligned with the Galactic Center of our Milky Way Galaxy Sept 04 to 11. It is the place of great Cosmic Wisdom. The Ancients believed it was the gateway through which Souls birthed into physical life on Earth and returned to the Stars at physical death. This is a perfect portal to connect with your Soul’s Wisdom and Guidance. Vesta remains in Sagittarius until Sept17/18 when she then enters Capricorn. Then she supports us to follow our Soul Purpose Path and share our knowledge and wisdom with the world.
In the Northern Hemisphere the Sun’s visit to Virgo is the Harvest Time. It is a time of gathering what we need for autumn and winter. Our Animal Totem guide is Brown Bear, introspection, healing, and The Healer. The astrological Earth is in Pisces, the Oneness of All. Her guides are Cougar, spiritual power, and Wolf, the teacher who guides us through change. We all know the Earth Mother is in distress. Last night here in Ontario Grandfather Sun was a brilliant red as he set. He was trying to shine through the haze of smoke from the forest fires far up north. Let us all include Mother Earth in our prayers for healing. In the Southern Hemisphere this is your Big Winds Time with Cougar and Wolf guiding the Sun in Virgo and Brown Bear, guiding the Earth in Pisces. For all of us our Clan Mother guide is Setting Sun Woman. She is the keeper of tomorrow’s dreams and goals. She is also the keeper of Mother Earth’s resources and the guardian of preservation. She teaches us How To Live The Truth. (The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams).
While the Sun is in Virgo and Earth is in Pisces we are working with the Tarot Constellation of The Hermit, introspection and personal integrity. It is about journeying within to find the Source. There are two Ray energies. The 7th Ray of Idealism and Devotion with Archangels Uriel, peace and harmony, and Aurora Grace, inspired devotion. We must embrace the highest expression of idealism. We are also working with 2nd Ray of Love Wisdom with Archangels Jophiel, creative vision, and Constance Christine, consistent illumination.

Being happy does not mean everything is perfect,
It means we are willing to see beyond the imperfections.
