A step forward!

«By virtue an ascent to a higher region is obtained by vice a descent into a lower. Deliverance is gained by knowledge, and bondage by the contrary» (Sāmkhya-kārikā, 44).

Mercury and Mars fill you with energy, which could be useful for starting the changes you want, given that Uranus definitely enters trine with your sign. This is a great opportunity to change and to build your future success. Even Jupiter square helps you, a pact that you do not just remain enthusiastic without having a definite plan.

That’s why I have chosen the quote from the Sāmkhya-kārikā. You must know where you are going, Virgo. You must know how to choose a goal and a discipline. Planets represents opportunities and they denote the right time to act. The right time means that you are mature and ready for a step forward. Then do not miss this chance because of laziness, arrogance or fear. Go ahead toward your best!
