Virgo: The Virgin
ASTRO-MINDER™ Thursday, July 3, 2014: If you feel like things are picking up speed it’s because they are. Mercury is direct and gaining momentum. Most of you will notice there are suddenly several irons in the fire and they look a whole lot like the irons from the end of May; that’s because they are. This is a good thing, trust me! You do trust me, don’t you? C’mon. I’d never hurt you. I LOVE you too much!
This is the third and last time you’ll have to go over these same wrinkles to iron them out for good! So be sure to do what you have to do, get it right this time, use some spray starch if you have to, but get things smoothed out as best as you can. We’ve talked about the sense of discomfort that we will feel around the 4th. If tomorrow, July 4th celebrations, in the USA aren’t really appealing to you because you’re feeling kind of “off”, then mind your instincts and just stay at home.
If you have pets, of course, protect their sensitive ears from fireworks and be sure they are secured so they don’t bolt out of your yard and into a road or street. My pretty chocolate labrador went missing one year for many hours and I thought I would never see her again. Monty, my 20-year-old, thought to, um, water a tree with his scent so the dog could smell him and her way home if she’d become lost or was disoriented. It sure did work: Truffle showed up exhausted and a bit worse for the wear, and now I never cease marveling at the power of pee!
Be safe, my friends. Don’t drink or do drugs and then drive ANYTHING because you could kill someone or a few people and you’ll likely live to see the rest of your life in prison. That’s if you don’t end up in a vegetative state the rest of your life. Think on that.
God bless you all! Happy 4th!

You’re in a situation, analytic Virgo, where you’re dealing with a person who is not objective, is prone to over emotion, and doesn’t always see things clearly. It’s not the best situation to be too understanding of the next person when they don’t know what they are doing — including when they are not playing fair or are playing on your emotions. Be strong, Virgo, you are not wrong this time, though you are too close to this situation to see what I’m saying clearly. So, I will clarify for you.
Some people are very good at being objective about even themselves. Others are not so good at objectivity and often they don’t know the difference between emotion and logic. You, of all signs, are the analyst and can analyze a situation quickly, completely, and accurately. The person or situation, likely linked to a close relationship (that goes for close business partnerships) is so muddled in their thinking, thanks to the Full Moon, that they cannot see their own shadow for what it is. What you are prone to doing now, dear Virgo, is defining shadow from illusion for this person and this must be nipped in the bottom immediately. You are not responsible for the emotions, feelings, perceptions, or consequences of another’s actions, so this is not the time for sympathy for this person. It is a time for you to step back, go your own way, and be yourself. You can be supportive but you cannot live another’s life.
Where you are erring is trying to understand the next person. Why bother with that when you don’t see life and situations through their eyes? Of course you want to sympathize with this person but what good will that do them? Do you like being an emotional crutch? I doubt it. What you need to do is understand that while you, of all people, cannot understand the next person — after all, you are analyst, not therapist! — you can understand the situation the next person is in from a cool, detached, objective point of view. Perhaps the best course right now is to remove yourself from the emotional entanglement of the person in question and live your life as you usually do and when asked, state your views and opinions of this person’s situation with a sense of detachment.
Think like this, dear Virgo: you are you, that person is themselves. You see what you see but I guarantee they do not see what you do. You role is merely to provide objective analysis of what you see wrong in their thinking much as an analyst interprets the raw data with no emotional involvement. Let the next person hear what you have to say and eliminate yourself from the equation.
Contemplate: Your ability to see things for what they are may not be the best received at this time, Virgo, but you would do well to state the obvious no matter what the next person thinks.

You’re a certain kind of analyst, Virgo friend (I should know, Virgo is my rising sign and I sometimes…never mind!) and that’s all fine and good if you are spending your time analyzing data. But right now you are wasting your time trying to place blame where you think it belongs when it’s only going to delay solving the pressing issues you have right now. When a problem presents, especially on that’s urgent, there is no sense whatsoever in trying to figure out who is to blame or how to assign that blame. Get the problem handled and like Leo, do not let this become another long standing issue or another record breaking blame-game that you carry as grudge forever or at least until infinity. Why bother? Look, there are other things to work on and somewhere there is lesson in this, yeah, even for you. No worries, get this taken care of. Take a cue from Neptune and as soon as you handle this business, work, financial, or otherwise NON romantic issue, you could enjoy some more bliss in your romantic efforts. But, the same applies as the aforementioned: stop assigning blame, even to your partner, for what could be your own behavior or at least part of it. I won’t bother telling you that you should take half the blame in anything because right now you’ve bigger fish to fry and you’ll need that finger to point out solutions, not problems or flaws in others. I will admit that someone is not being honest with you and I don’t see it as a romantic partner so much. But there is some confusion thanks to Neptune in part, because sometimes business partners are so close to us they may as well be akin to lovers (just work with me here.) So, solve the problem, don’t analyze so much right now, and get this taken care of. Later, when there is time, you can figure out who did what but not now.
Contemplate: Okay, someone may not be honest with you and it looks like it involves finances, money, resources, or how they handle money and it could be a joint issue or something close enough or similar enough to be considered joint. Don’t worry about who is taking advantage of you, stop the problem by solving the problem now — then go back to figuring things out.
