e are in the begin- ning of

vest season, col- lecting our bounty and


ourselves into Focus. It is the ninth month of the calendar year. Our New Year babies are coming to-term and heading off to


Astrologi- cally we are in the sixth house of daily

work, health and Virgo, as mentioned in

last month’s column- the self- pos- sessed and eternal Virgin. This can sometimes color the personality (fer- sher). Virgo, as our mutable earth sign, can equate and relate with “pu- rity”; grounding that concept like no other and making a great case for cleanliness in all corners of life. Friends and kin If I can extend a small bit of advice as a fellow Virgo, by all means continue the pursuit of purity. But try not to be- come so obsessed with perfection

that you become neurotic, judg- mental and lose your way. It’s so easy. I often have to re- mind myself that Virgo is also the sign of the healer and that my intentions are almost always for the better. Remember In the eyes of many spiritual peoples we are already perfect, all of us, and have but to simply enjoy full range of our perfec-

the tion.

If we allow that innate, “ inalien- able” sense of wholeness to guide our own thoughts and actions we capillate not only to our children, but to our neighbors and so on. This is big living. Sometimes we need the momentum of a sign change to knock out the petty trip-ups. As in each month throughout the year the change of signs happens in the third week of each month. If we play our cards right, truly using the larger timing of the universe. If we are, say, all tangled in the sticky details of a petty argument, wait until the 22nd when the Sun enters the larger more gracious environs of our cardinal sign Libra. As they

say a breath of fresh air. The glyph of this sign is not representative of a being, but a symbol; the scales of balance and justice. mak- ing this sign able to make supremely judicious decisions for parties outside of their own realm. How- ever, they do have difficulty making decisions for them- selves.

Libra, highest octave of

Venus you have an elegance and poise unprecedented in the zo- diac; statuesque, even if you are the 3’ 6” dimensions of a perfect human. Just a little primmer here. Libra

ushers in the Autumnal Equinox- equal balanced nights. One of the Four Pillars of Power, we pop into the upper cerebral hemisphere of the wheel . So we are all heeding the call of Fall and heading “back to school” be that yoga, book club, first grade or the grand mystery school. So next month we’ll embrace the full salons of Libra. Until then Happy Birthday you perfect Virgos and exquisite Li- brans!

StaR ChartinG Letters to Upbeat Times

I love UPBEAT and have been reading it since its incep- tion.

A .Harris of Sonoma County Final JOKE

I couldn’t find my luggage at the airport baggage area, so I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed up.

She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional and I was in good hands.

“Now,” she asked me, “has your plane arrived yet?”
