Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 8/23/2011: Cardinal, Fixed or Mutable?

Say goodbye to Leo; say hello to the Sun entering Virgo at 7:21AM ET.  Virgo is an earth sign (as opposed to fire, water or air). It is also a mutable sign, as opposed to cardinal or fixed. What does that mean? Cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn. These signs initiate; they come up with the idea.  Fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius. These signs organize and give form to the concepts pitched by cardinal energy. Mutable signs — Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces — get to spread the word about the cool form the fixed signs organized. Got it?

More about Virgo: it is ruled by Mercury. In health matters it rules the intestinal tract and assimilation. If you have planets in Virgo in your horoscope, and they are under a great deal of developmental tension, you may have some issues with your digestive system.

As for today: a potential for analytical overload or an opportunity to calmly and methodically separate the wheat from the chaff (the symbol for Virgo is a virgin with a shaft of wheat — amazing!)  Enjoy the relative calm; the rest of the week is sure to have some ups and downs. Militant Mars squares off against controlling Saturn early Thursday morning. We’ll see signs of this determined (plus side) and/or frustrated (downside) energy in the headlines from now and all through the week. Moon is void of course all day Thursday, too — and doesn’t enter the next sign until 12:09PM FRIDAY, the day Mercury turns direct. Not a bad week to be on vacation…
