On Aug. 23 the Sun enters Virgo. This creates a grand trine in earth that will last until Sept. 13. Earth is the element of health and wealth in Astrology so these are the areas of life that will prosper or – if you’re going through a rough patch – fall under the protection of this starry triangle in the sky. This is not a time for recklessness and risks. Earth energy is conservative, holistic, and slow moving. It favors hard work and industry and frowns on gambles, short-cuts, and gimmicks. If you’ve put in the time and effort then you can expect to harvest a bumper crop on Aug. 29 and 30, Sept. 7, 8, and 13. If you haven’t? Then you will reap what you have sown and that will speak for itself. A final note: those undergoing a difficult health passage will experience added strength and physical resilience during this time. This should tip the balance of recovery in your favor.
