Which is more important: results, or process? At this Full Moon, the Sun in Virgo argues for efficiency and results. But across the zodiacal wheel, the fully illuminated Moon in the opposite sign, Pisces, makes the case for enjoying the process of life. For dancing with the leaves and having an absolutely wonderful time….
Today, I will get thoroughly and deliciously lost, happily scrubbing and sweeping and tossing and rearranging, setting my house – and my spirit – in order. Today, though I appear to be working very hard indeed, I am in fact resting – and very much at peace.

Transiting Mars, as we all know, will rendezvous with Saturn tomorrow (11:12 am PDT) in the early degrees of Virgo. Pretty much the acme of a hard-workin’ transit, wouldn’t you say?
