VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
A lot of times we’ll set a goal and focus on achieving it. It’s the reason for to-do lists, target weights, and money-saving strategies. Mars is all about raising the bar higher, but we can also be so single-minded that we wind up limiting ourselves without knowing it. On August 1st Mars will form a trine to Jupiter. Instead of hitting the mark and moving on, try recognizing what you bring to the situation. You may discover that you’ve gained experience, skills, and even an improvisational inventiveness. If you’re always making the challenge steeper then you’ll never learn to build on what you have.
