Welcome to “Starcast” – a fascinating look into what the Cosmos has in store for the 12 sun-signs. Constant activity is threaded throughout our solar system – which has its own time schedule. Unique, yes, but a time schedule, nonetheless. This matters, because whatever takes place in our solar system – such as the planet, Mars (raw energy) entering the sun-sign of Virgo, the Virgin, three days ago, on Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at 7:05 a.m. (ET), and traveling through Virgo until Saturday, December 7, 2013, when it enters Libra, the Balancing Scales (certainly, a “Starcast” for another time) – influences each of us. Constantly. Here’s how it works. Whatever your sun-sign (there are 12), this powerful planetary placement (Mars in Virgo) affects you directly – since Virgo governs one of the twelve houses within your own birth chart.

Noteworthy: Mars in Virgo brings a specialized brand of energy with it. The House (there are 12) that it occupies in your chart (also known as the zodiac wheel) is given a fresh charge of energy. And since a planet placement reflects the qualities of the sun-sign it enters, this Mars will definitely be fresh, focused, and patient, very much like Virgo. Now, during this particular cycle (October 15th through December 7th) – fortified with a fresh charge of energy – work closely and carefully with this vital energy. Relax – mentally, emotionally, physically – and focus on your most positive ideas, plans, projects, and relationships. Do what needs to be done. Wait. Repeat, if necessary. Adjust, only if needed.

Visualize a numerical (1 through 12) clock or wristwatch. That’s your birth chart. And each pie-shaped wedge (3 to 2 o’clock, for example) is a house – an area of activity (love, money – in every currency imaginable – work, and so on) in your day-to-day world, one of which Virgo, the Virgin, governs. So, know that this influence (Mars in Virgo) energizes your thoughts and your actions. Still, keep both confidential. They’re a power source – all the more powerful for being kept hidden.

Here’s how the planet, Mars (raw energy), in Virgo, the Virgin, affects the 12 sun-signs within the 12 houses of the zodiac wheel.
