Astrology for Tuesday, August 23, 2022
Leo time is done. Kid are back in school. Summertime is coming to an end. Today, it is Virgo's turn to host the Sun. We have left fire element and entered the domain of earth. It is a good time for schoolwork or classes of any kind, as Virgo always strives to be better (and wouldn't mind if you tried a little harder to be perfect, too). Learning that has practical application and service - those are Virgo territories.
Mars has also shifted - from earthy Taurus that likes to sleep on big decisions - into airy. Gemini. Air moves nimbly. The pace suits Mars better. Air and fire = combustibility. The Virgo sun may find it a little difficult to maintain focus while Mars in Gemini is a bit like herding cats.
The 23rd is a day of opposites:
Sun in Virgo and Venus in Leo oppose Saturn in Aquarius - Leaders may face accountability; relationships have limits.
Moon in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn - The masses may protest big business or big government or any monolithic power structure, feeling that there just isn't enough "heart" in those big institutions. Harsh truths might hurt Cancerian sensitivities.
Mercury in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces - Facts or Imagination? Media might report on wld conspiracy theories. Fantasies can be overblown. Conversely, facts might lack magic and mysticism or be too finite in scope.
