Horoscope for the Week of Oct 18th:
It seems like the last few weeks has been concentrated on what is going on in your head, and you wouldn’t be wrong about that. This the last day of the Retrogrades, what with the final two planets – Mercury and Jupiter -. going direct today. Mercury and Jupiter together are the two sides of the brain; Mercury the left side, and Jupiter the right side. Little picture, big picture. These two together will mean a more positive mental outlook on things, as well as will be done in large proportion, starting with those dreams you haven’t given flight to, yet. Let’s take a look at where Jupiter and Mercury will be playing out for you, this week:
With your perfectionistic ways of doing things, you’ll be actually having some special opportunities coming your way this week. You articulate yourself so well, and someone is going to ask you to assist them with a writing project. This project looks like a good deal for you, because you’ll be tackling something you’re very familiar with. There will be a lot of work to do at first, but it will end up being a huge feather in your cap later, especially when it applies to future possibilities with your work.

All About Virgo (August 23-September 22)
If we look at the sign of Leo and Virgo together, we can see the differences: Leo needs and wants to be on top, and Virgo is at the bottom. This sign is the Worker Bee, and lives to serve – and is a perfectionist. We’ve all heard jokes about Virgos being extremely picky, and that is generally true. This sign is truly meant to figure out what needs to be done and get it done as perfectly as they can. Their organizational skills are exceptional, they can clean with pure joy and will proofread something with the keenest eye. The devil is in the details, and go ahead and let Virgo manage all of it. If these people aren’t allowed to work, and work hard, part of them seems missing.
The real purpose of Virgo is to be of service and work cooperatively within a job situation. They are extremely good as critiques and editing; they will always find a misplaced comma or period. Methodical and industrious, this sign is truly efficient and able. Virgos have amazing attention to detail, practicality, with an extremely sharp mind.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury. Mercury is the planet that also rules Gemini, but this is a different focus. Mercury always has to do with all facets of the mind, but ruling Virgo is different; the search for information is now pared down to using one’s discriminating mind to perfect the search.
Associated body part: the hands and the lungs. (see Gemini) The issues of challenge: The problem of over-analysis and over-anything is the real big deal. This sign can be uber picky and drive others crazy. If they can let up, then can enjoy life rather than obsessing over the details.
The issues of joy: Ultimate organization of all the little things. When everything is in its place, and there’s a place for everything, Virgo is extremely happy and fulfilled. It is truly a joy for Virgo to have every little detail in order.
