Happy Birthday Valerie...
We have three very important patterns that are active in the horoscopes... The first is a combination of Mars and Mercury... The next is Pluto and Saturn... And lastly the Sun and the Node... Let's get into this...
The Mercury aligned with Mars energy, this is the energy that most people are experiencing and feeling right now... If it had a 'voice' it would sound like a telly-vision announcer saying "Act Now, Before It's too Late
"... It says "I want what they have"... When the 'base-desires' can easily over-power logic, reason and plain common sense... This alignment is especially strong because it takes place in the sign of Leo, so that adds even more 'fire' to the mix and amplifies the 'instant-gratification' qualities... Ol' Veruca Salt in the Willy Wonka movie would surely be singin' right about now... "I Don't Care How, I Want it Now!!"... And to even add more fire onto the fire and to 'raise the stakes'... Mercury is not retrograde again and that will add even more confusion and insanity to the mix.
Next on the list is the Pluto/Saturn conjunction (alignment)... This is the same type of energy as the Mercury and Mars conjunction too, except it is 1000 times more powerful and has long term (life-long) effects... While the Mercury/Mars energy can cause you to say or do stupid things, the Saturn/Pluto energy is the kind that can "lead us into temptation"... Where we are faced with choices or decisions where even though we 'know' we shouldn't do or say what we're thinkin'... That it is the wrong thing to do, we do/say them anyway... Just watch how in a few months when you see so many people who you would think 'had it made' can have the rug pulled out from beneath them.
Then we have the Sun and the Node aligned... It is the activation of "Fate and Destiny" and setting the 'wheels of change' into motion... Sorta-kinda like the Big Spirit sayin'... "You made your choices, now live with the results".
When you put all this energy together, you clearly see how necessary it is to "Keep the Faith" and not allow the desires for action and activity to over-power what you know inside matters most... We see examples of this energy all the time when we see people "Trade Gold for Dirt"... To throw away all that has mattered or have meaning on an impulsive or reckless decision... My old mailman used to tell me stories of how so many career mailmen will get popped for stealin' a ball-point pen out of the mail, and lose many years worth of benefits for a 20 cent crappy pen... It's madness, but these things happen all the time.
I guess I see this current chart as the old Knight in the Indiana Jones movie when 'Indy' has to choose 'the holy grail' and the Knight says... Choose Wisely...
That's it for now... I'll talk to you guys in the daily 'scopes...
Keep the Faith... Better Days and Higher Love are comin' soon...

The Weekly Horoscope for Virgo...
The weekly horoscope for Virgo has a very free-spirited and adventuristic quality to it that can be incredible for finding new answers and solutions, it can also make you a bit self-serving and perhaps 'reckless' in your choices and actions... (just sayin')... All that 11th House energy is exciting and inspiring (because Uranus rules it)... It requires you to maintain the view of the 'Big Picture' because others are not likely to act or react in the ways you might expect them to.
Weekly Horoscope for Virgo
Your Daily Tao
The Tao is constant in non-action
Yet there is nothing it does not do
If the sovereign can hold on to this
All things shall transform themselves
Transformed, yet wishing to achieve
I shall restrain them with the simplicity of the nameless
The simplicity of the nameless
They shall be without desire
Without desire, using stillness
The world shall steady itself
