VIRGO (August 23-September 23)
One way to understand your sign is the metaphor of a child carrying the groceries. Virgos tend to be given too much responsibility too young; or maybe there’s something about you that takes life seriously and has from a very young age, and knows that you must do your bit. The advantage of this is that you will tend to grow younger, particularly in your desire to have fun. You might spend your lifetime claiming elements of your childhood, and bringing them to your daily experience of life. What children understand better than adults is the idea of serious fun. Usually adults have to learn this, through developing their talents. Music, painting, drawing, building things, writing—these are all serious fun, and they all require an investment. Playing guitar scales is not fun, at first. Writing is tedious and requires meticulous attention to detail. Then once you can do it, even a little, it’s an amazing experience. Saturn entering your 5th house of fun, pleasure, play, playful sex and art, is an invitation for you to embark on a journey like this. You’ve probably got several partially developed skills that you still feel called to do. Or you may be a master at something and feel like you just want to have more fun doing it. If you play first violin for the New York Philharmonic, it’s time to buy a fiddle and join a jug band.
