If the planets symbolize the forces and energies that happen in different situations, then the aspects between the planets symbolize how these energies work together and integrate with each other. There are challenging and easy aspects between the planets and it is up to the individual to choose how they are going to utilize the aspect energies for a positive outcome. The aspects between planets are said to speak to each other. Depending on which planets are aspecting each other and the rest of the natal chart, will determine which planet is dominate and which is not in the aspect between them. But ultimately it is up to the individual to decide how they are going to use the aspects of planets in their chart with their free will, in a meaningful and productive way.
This placement can either muddle things up or pull forth a magnetic quality, contingent upon the rest of your horoscope. There is a battle going on inside, the conformist versus the rebel, traditionalist versus the progressive, the realist versus the dreamer, conventional versus the alternative. Pressure builds up while you are fighting within, this then that then back again. There is an opportunity with this placement to combine these traits in a way that will be beneficial to humanity in some way. Much hard work will be required to achieve this goal, but it is definitely attainable. You are able to create progressive changes by dedicating yourself to an idea. You complete the things you start as you can instinctively feel which methods would be best used to realistically attain these feats. Allow yourself the time needed as you can become impatient and burst emotionally during stressful moments, only to feel regretful once your temper calms down. It is important that you develop a way to sooth yourself during these moments as they may cause you to act rashly. Much of your outrage is due to your tendency to keep your emotions bottled up until you cannot control them any further, and then you erupt. You need to learn how to express these feelings in more positive ways before they reach an intolerable level. Consider visualisation, breathing techniques, or meditative exercises to channel your tension.
You are highly imaginative and spend a good deal of time with the fantasies swimming around in your mind. Precognitive visions are likely to show themselves in this placement and you will be prone to idealism. You may find it difficult to assert yourself and instead prefer to just go with the current rather than making your own waves. Artistic pursuits appeal to you since you are a natural artist, though there is particular interest in musical ventures or poetic writing, as you are gifted in these fields. You are drawn to the sounds of the guitar, violin, bass, cello and anything else featuring strings. Due to your sensitive nature, you are sometimes taken down the wrong path purely by subconscious influence from the environment you are in or the people you surround yourself with. Your mind is often muddled and it might be a challenge for you to alter your inner self in a beneficial manner as you as lack the clarity needed to do so. Escapism via substance abuse needs to be watched for and can ruin you if you are not careful; saying no can prove to be difficult for you in general. Stability does not come naturally. Do not dabble in unwholesome mystical practices such as the calling forth of spirits; you never know what trouble you may find yourself in spiritually for doing so. Mentally, you follow an abstract way of reasoning rather than the step-by-step pattern that others are prone to, and therefore you may find it difficult to communicate your own thoughts out loud. It is probably easier for you to convey your feelings in artistic pursuits or through the written word instead. Traditional education is probably not the best way for you to learn and you would do well having a teacher that can instruct you by example instead. You quickly pick up on hints and vibrations, although it can be tough for you to decipher what the actual meaning is behind them due to your inclination to let your imagination run away with you. There is likely to be trouble with focusing on daily life responsibilities or with figuring out the difference between fact and fantasy. You are prone to ponder the existence of other realms. Taking photographs may be an enjoyable hobby. Due to your high sensitivity, there is a nervousness and tension inside of you that make it necessary for you to retreat into seclusion for short periods on a daily basis to reset. Many authors, artists, and performers share this placement.
This aspect presents you with a chance to attain a higher reasoning in spirituality by self-sacrifice and working diligently to aid others. You will be able to put your necessities on the back burner to do what needs to be done for those loyal to you and this kind of service is happily done by you. You can easily combine your idealistic views with realism in a fantastic way. You will often remove your emotions from a situation so that you may finish what youve started. Any dream you aspire to, you will put forth a great deal of effort to accomplish. You are able to get by on mere scraps when you feel it is needed to achieve your aim. Imaginative applied artistry is your specialty. This aspect implies that the native is protected spiritually by karma from a previous life where they had aided others.
You are giving, caring, charitable, and would readily share whatever assets you might have. For the people you care for, you would quickly extend both yourself and the material items in your possession, however you will usually only do so if it isnt too much trouble for you. A luxurious, stylish, relaxing environment is essential to you and you refuse to do any manual labour. Your charismatic, pleasant, polite demeanour is perfect for hosting company. Good karma from a past life assures you luck with your finances and acquiring assets. There is an inclination towards indulging yourself extravagantly and behaving in a lazy manner; try to curb these habits. At times, life fulfils your needs and desires with so little effort on your part that you may not value what you are given. With regards to your health, you are susceptible to putting on weight due to your liking of tasty food and drink. You are a tender-hearted, out-going, friendly type who avoids conflict and enjoys exploring beautiful, distance lands. It would be most beneficial for you to learn to appreciate what you have and to stick things out even when they are difficult sometimes.
You usually possess a positive attitude, though this can be expressed as an extreme. You commit to things that you are unable to see through to the end. Many of the tales you tell are amped up so as to create a larger impact. You are unlikely to believe in religion due to not being able to wrap your head around the matter. You prefer working on a grand scale and leaving the details to someone else. There is an almost obsessive habit of going back again and again to make sure you did something like close the window or put the phone on the charger. You have a tendency towards over-doing things in general as you instinctively feel that if something is good, adding more of it will only make it even greater. You can be close-minded about views that differ from your own. You often ignore the fine print in favour of the big picture and many times this can cause trouble for you in the future. It would do you well to try to keep your visions grounded, as you are likely to overemphasise and misjudge a promising new concept. You do not mean to cause any harm, you simply get over-excited and this can create problems for you. There are so many new concepts, visions, and dreams spinning around in your mind and you find it a challenge to pick one and go with it. In addition, you may find yourself completely engrossed in a foolish endeavour. Mentally you are strongly interested in topics related to abstract theories and spiritual or philosophical matters.
Despite some of the above, you are often successful in business as you seem to have a natural knack for it. Your abundance of fresh concepts and ability to take risk aids you in these ventures. Travelling is particularly appealing to you and you enjoy being introduced to fresh information and new forms of understanding. You may try your hand as an educator due to your appreciate for knowledge and your enthusiasm for conveying what you have learned to others. However, it is important that you develop enough self-restraint to sort through your troubles thoroughly before making a move as you have a habit of impatiently hurrying your work with less-than-perfect results as a consequence; this can even be seen in your often illegible writing style. At times your ideas are too far-fetched and unrealistic to be put into practice. Although, this attitude of yours does keep you from being judgemental of other people. Even with a mind as unique as your own, you have trouble with remembering things sometimes and can be a bit of a space-cadet. There is possibility of being gifted in the written or spoken word. You need to be particularly mindful of becoming so enthralled by a situation that you are unable to think clearly and accurately; make sure your assumptions are correct before you act on them. You are talented in pulling something from one area and successfully connecting it to another area that was seemingly unrelated. Be careful who you trust as there are those that would take your kindness for granted and use you for all that you are worth. In addition, taking some time to think before you speak will help you overcome a tendency towards rambling on and over-explaining when something could be said more simply and cohesively.
You are confident, driven, and enthusiastic. You are of the mindset that if you try hard enough to achieve a goal, you will eventually do so. There is an awareness of when things should be done and an intuition regarding what methods would be effective, and which ones would not be. Competition can be fun for you and you remain cheerful throughout the challenge. However, this competition is mostly done on your own, as you like to push yourself farther than you have before. Revenge is not something that you usually engage in as you prefer to let go of whatever wrongs others have done you. What you find truly interesting are things that broaden your mind, such as higher learning, spiritual matters, philosophical concepts, or travel. Being active and out in nature appeals to your adventurous spirit. If you could develop self-discipline, you are likely to do well in sporty activities. You exude positivity and greet the world with enthusiasm. Money comes easily to you and therefore you are likely to waste it too readily. You give of yourself and your possessions freely. What happens in the future is not troubling to you as you trust in the universe to provide you with your necessities. Others see you as honourable and honest in your dealings. It is rare that you allow anger to dwell within you for very long; usually you are apt to let things go easily as you believe that staying upset would only be wasteful. When times are tough, you are still able to maintain your optimism and continue to be kind and considerate towards others.
You have an ability to enlighten yourself through spirituality, whether this ability is conscious or subconscious. Philosophy and acquiring knowledge are important to you and you tend towards idealism. However, you are often accepting of others views, despite them differing from your own. You have keen intuition and a sensitive, creative mind that may lead to mystical abilities.
You are able to focus yourself exceptionally well and are capable of great self-control. Your mind can attain amazing feats due to these talents and your organisational abilities also aid in providing structure for your plans. It may take you longer than it would take others to think through a situation but once you do, you understand it completely and deeply. You prefer to take a more sombre attitude in life, working hard instead of playing around light-heartedly with others. Mentally you are detail-oriented and do not mind completing tasks that are too dull and monotonous for others. You do not beat around the bush when it comes to business and are a clear, direct communicator that portrays themselves as reasonable and practical; you would make a fine administrator. Others know they can depend on you to come through on your promises as doing things the right way is important to you. You do best focusing on one area and specialising in it, versus trying to learn a little bit about many fields. Solitary learning is likely more effective for you than traditional methods, as you require time to fully absorb and think through the information. You may be good at critical thinking due to your excellent ability to find loop-holes in peoples reasoning. Careers that require a systematic way of thinking are right up your alley. Mentally you are disciplined, reasonable, dutiful, exacting, and precise. Physically you are healthy and heal quickly from any ailment you encounter.
There is a possibility with this placement to benefit humanity by using your imagination and ingenuity. Frequent fluctuations and transformations are likely to be part of your life and aid you in improving yourself and the lives of others. Intuitively you are aware that these fluctuations are good for you and are therefore welcoming of them. You find yourself striving to better the world, and you are able to do this peacefully and lawfully, without causing strife or disharmony.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The signs in astrology are the way that the actors behave on stage. They ask the question how? How is the planet motivated? How are they living their life, in their highest good or in their shadow? The signs describe in detail how the actor might react, behave or conduct themselves.
Virgos have a strong need to keep their lives orderly, pure, and flawless. They tend to be quiet, efficient, diligent, dutiful, trustworthy, selective, prompt, exacting, thoughtful, and shy with a great talent for analysing all they come across (learn about compatibility with Virgo here). Virgos are reasonable and grounded, superb workers with high attention to detail. However they can also be difficult, cold, overly particular, negative, self-focused, and cynical, with a darker sense of humour and may be prone to melancholic mood swings. Virgos are often at their best when they are involving themselves in work that allows them to use their analytical abilities in the field of technology, caretaking, or any work with detailed tasks. They do not mind others taking the leading roles, as they are more concerned with providing quality service to people.
Virgos have an active mind, always questioning and searching for answers to their many curiosities. They enjoy problem solving, studying peoples behaviour, and examining their environment carefully. Virgos are adept at remembering even the things others may find insignificant. They prefer to keep active either physically or mentally, as they require new stimulation; lack of interesting new data and experiences can cause tension for a Virgo and they are known for being rather anxious.
When a Virgo makes a commitment, they keep it; their word is their bond. They are excellent administrative coordinators and proficient in maintaining an orderly environment. Virgoans have an innate fondness for organisation and tranquillity. They are hard on themselves to keep things just right and this tendency extends to others as well. If they are unable to find this perfection, a Virgo will become irritable and pick people apart for lacking whatever quality they believe the person should possess.
Virgos may be fretful as they are often looking for the ideal and trying to improve things. Even when something has been completed, they will think back on how it could have been made better. Unfortunately, this sort of worrying can impact their physical state, sometimes affecting their digestive track; keeping themselves optimistic will have a positive effect on their health. They can be prone to creating problems where there are none, especially with their health. However, most of the time their health is just fine as they tend to be on the lookout for ways to improve it. It is important for a Virgo to have time during the day to reflect and relax from all of their mental activity, regardless their age, and they do tend to age well.
A Virgo may find it challenging to convey their innermost feelings to another. Though they can be independent creatures, they enjoy having someone to care for and someone to show small, thoughtful acts of kindness to.
Detail-oriented with a quick, sharp mind, you are able to execute tasks in a painstakingly careful and thorough fashion. You are effective, investigative, sensible, and reasoned; you keep your feet on the ground. Your practical, rational nature gives way towards a possible career in mechanical or technical work, where you need to possess a set of specific abilities. Abstract reasoning is not particularly interesting to you if it cannot be applied in a handy, concrete manner. Though you are detail oriented and enjoy investigating everything that comes your way, there is a likelihood of being blind to subtleties; you need things to be expressed to you directly rather than having to assume or guess at hints. You excel in endeavours that require an exact, accurate thought process, precise technique, or effective, structured administration. There is a tendency towards being too hard on others to meet your perfectionistic requirements. Your strengths include dependability, flexibility, methodical approach, and attention to detail. However, you are also prone to getting bogged down with a negative attitude and cynical, prejudiced behaviour as well as having a tendency to grumble and gripe when things are not to your liking. Be mindful that you do not lose the big picture when focusing on the details.
You are delightful, appealing, pleasant, polite, well-mannered, thoughtful, composed, with an ability to keep things peaceful rather than clashing with others. However, this may lead you to having trouble standing up for yourself when you need to. Though Libras are usually harmonious, Venus in Libra can be quite merciless in romantic partnerships as they know exactly what to say to get what they want. You have a way of acquiring the things you need in your life almost out of thin air. Whatever is necessary to you, tends to find its way to you and people are particularly drawn towards you; make sure that you remember to value these things that gravitate to you. You feel a strong need for things to be peaceful in your life, so much so that you will sacrifice too much at times. Confrontation is difficult for you and you will often pretend nothing is the matter rather than continue with any sort of disharmony. As a marriage partner, some people enjoy a bit of tension but you prefer someone that will equate to you and easily mesh with your character. You like your partner to be gentle, sensitive, and refined. A rough and tumble sort just isnt your style, you need someone that knows how to act in polite company, someone diplomatic and polished. It is easy for you to relate to people and this creates a pull towards you. You are likely to be creative or artistic somehow, especially with your voice. Laziness is something you may have to keep an eye out for as you prefer to stay comfortable rather than putting in the hard work required at times. Indecision is also a typical issue for those with this placement. You often do not like to be alone for very long and seek out others to keep you company.
You are assertive, spontaneous, and always ready to start on a ground-breaking new adventure. You dislike being held back or having others control your actions in any way. You make a much better leader than you do a subordinate. Often you are strong-willed, impetuous, and unwilling to wait. When you want something, you go full speed ahead, without paying much attention to any objections or obstacles put in your path. You thoroughly enjoy and seek out challenges that allow you to demonstrate your capabilities. Collaborating peacefully with others does not come easily to you and you can be a bit self-centred, looking out for your own best interests with little regard to others needs; it is all about YOU. You are unable to accept any aid from others as you do not wish to be viewed as weak. You insist that things be done the way you want them to be, whether or not this is the most beneficial direction to take in the matter. Your strongest skill lies in pioneering; you excel in getting the ball rolling, though will opt out quickly when the endeavour takes longer than you expected. Long term dedication to an assignment is not easy for you. It may be best to stick with projects that you can finish in a shorter time frame. Drive, vitality, and zest are native to you. Though make sure to mind how much energy you exert, as you can throw yourself in full-force, only to wear yourself out prematurely. Exercise is important to you as you need an outlet for the immense amount of physical energy you possess; you are likely to be quite fit and healthy. There is a tendency to be accident-prone. Try to mind your temper and desire to rush forward too quickly, without thinking things through first. Develop a strategy for seeing an assignment through to the end before starting a new one.
You are cunning, quick-witted, and jovial. Experiencing other cultures and new places appeals to you as you are able to learn much from these endeavours. You may have a gift for learning to communicate in a different language. However, internally you possess an anxious tension that you try to counter by nervous banter, communicating excessively, or making commitments that you are unable to follow through on. Working in literature may appeal to you. You are innovative and able to comprehend abstract concepts, as well as enjoy applying your mind to mathematical subjects. You seek out situations that will challenge you and alter your perception or help you grow in knowledge or wisdom. Justice or religious practices may also draw your attention.
You are diligent in accomplishing the things you set out to do. Material items may be excessively important to you and you are likely to cautiously set aside more of your funds than you need to. The weight given to these assets is for your own peace of mind, however it may end up that you suffer much anxiety by stressing over possible negative outcomes affecting your security in the future. It would be best for you to take some time to think about the things that are truly important to you, rather than living in fear of what tomorrow may bring. You tend to be a hard worker who possesses a great deal of tolerance when things may be going slower than you would like them to. You are self-controlled, careful, unwavering, prepared, structured, and able to persevere when others would give up; you dont mind putting in the extra effort to do a job well. Deep down you are a rather serious individual who is very steady with their emotions, keeping them well under wraps. It may be difficult for you to let certain things go, and you may carry these disturbed feelings for a long time. Being able to trust someone is extremely significant for you. You also have a strong desire to construct something worthwhile.
