If Your Birthday is Sept. 16
(The Day of Spirited Energies) | Virgo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
There’s a limit to the extent you can shape your life to the will of another person. You have your own agenda, and you’ve set aside many plans for the sake of others. If your own free will or any unusual circumstances liberate you to fulfill your dreams, take that opportunity. To share your life with others, it must first be your own.
Written in the Planets
Today’s square between the Virgo Sun and Ixion in Sagittarius looks like a clear reminder to remember the Golden Rule. Or, even better, a modified version: treat others as they would like to be treated, and remember that you’ll feel best about yourself if you’re ethical, honest and compassionate about it. Meanwhile, Mercury and Mars make their conjunction in Virgo today. Are you hearing an echo or a continuation from something that happened on Sept. 3, when they last conjoined — particularly something that relates to the Aug. 21 eclipse? Notice how closely your ego is identified with non-essentials, and see if you can channel all this mental and physical stamina into serving a greater need or project.
How will you activate your potential and passion to grow and become? You can start by pre-ordering your Virgo Birthday Reading — at the lowest price we offer: just $33 for some of the clearest, most immediately useful astrology you can find on the internet, designed for anyone with a Virgo Sun, Virgo rising or Virgo Moon.
