The Sun goes into the astrological sign Virgo today. And though Autumn Equinox is not until September 22nd, it's a herald of the fall season. It's a kind of in-between, the last (mutable) sign in the summer trio (Cancer, Leo, Virgo) -- for sifting and sorting, getting clean, organizing, lining up school supplies.
Virgo is an earth sign, for taking stock and lifting out what's worth carrying forward, ditching the rest. Its mutability makes it a season to adapt to the times -- Virgo shows us how to make smart decisions based on conditions on the ground. It's a great time for a pre-fall clean and de-cluttering.
