It’s Virgo Season again!

Libra Seeking Balance

Today the Sun shifts into earthy Virgo and we move one step closer to the Autumnal Equinox in the northern latitudes. Virgo is happiest working quietly to make our daily lives run more smoothly and efficiently. And since Mercury is currently retrograde in Virgo, we can use the Virgo Sun’s assistance with returning order to our daily lives after a very dramatic Leo Season which included two eclipses!

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
