Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 22nd August. The Sun powers into Virgo on Tuesday, returning after an eleven months absence. He joins with the trio of Mercury Jupiter and Venus, bringing a tremendous Virgo dimension to bear in the heavens, and of course, as above, so below. So what does this mean?
The virtuous strand that was building up last week with the combination of Mercury and Jupiter is going to be emphasised even more. But the crucial thing with this week is that from Wednesday to Sunday Mercury, Venus and Jupiter are all going to be side-by-side or conjunct. In the first half of the week, Mercury and Jupiter continue their close alliance. This points towards some kind of good fortune, and it's possible that we going to be reading about some health breakthroughs, possibly about new cure’s or radical approaches, that can improve the lot of some of the world’s citizens. But of course is what we do in our own lives that is the most important thing, and don't be surprised if you find yourself drawn towards some kind of therapeutic treatment, such as a massage, chiropractic, or some other form of healing.
The more informed we continue to become about diets and the micronutrients that are contained in various food sources is also going to be a smart thing to do. If you find yourself checking the label in the supermarket, good for you. With such a sedimentary lifestyle that many of us lead these days being more physically active can also be an outcome from this particular set of influences.
But Virgo is also the sign of service, and there is a world of difference between this and being servile, but if we can find a way to use our skill sets, or talents in order to help other people this would be a very fine thing to do. If you work in an industry which is service led and linked to health, food, distribution or providing tangible benefits, it could really flourish at this time.
However, the Sun does square up to a Gemini Quarter Moon on Thursday, suggesting what we shouldn't do is try too hard to pack too much into this week, so there is a kind of irony here that is to be virtuous, but not try to be too virtuous.
All of this week also continues to see the conjunction between Saturn and Mars. This requires us to concentrate hard and narrow our range of activities onto the things that are really essential, but I think information and knowledge or anything to do with long-distance communications, travel and overseas involvements can all be very much the fore. However, just like last week, the complex influence of Neptune cannot be underestimated, so just be conscious of your own motives and those of anyone you get closely involved with.
