“The trick to forgetting the big picture is to look at everything close-up.” Chuck Palahniuk


A road map is usually of maximum use or benefit to us when we already know our destination and simply want to analyze or explore the various ways to get there. However, when we are murky or unclear about where it is that we want to go, it can be very easy for the details of the map (Sun in Virgo) to get lost on us. Kind of like we’re missing that one big “gestalt” figure that ties everything together.

Today, with the Moon in “big picture” Sagittarius, the Universe is perhaps forwarding the notion that we may want to try examining matters with our “hopeful destination,” already clearly in mind, and then try trekking backwards from there. See how our daily deeds or actions (the Virgo “dots on the map”) are supporting or hindering our long-term goals or intentions (Moon in Sagittarius) for ourselves.

Too, if we are currently operating without the benefit of a “clear vision” for our lives, or for a project, today may be a good day to begin fashioning one, as the Sagittarius Moon tends to make us want to “think big,” while the Virgo Sun is adept at filling in all of the details of how to get there. Also, always a good starting question to ask ourselves, when we’re crafting a vision, is, “What do we really want?” And, if we’re still unsure, or nothing immediately comes to mind, we may want to flip the question and ask instead, “What do we NOT want?” Normally when we do that, we’ll trigger a floodgate of responses, and then we can go ahead and start clarifying or building our vision based upon that process of elimination. “The most pathetic person in the world is some one who has sight but no vision.” Helen Keller

The Sagittarius Moon also puts a spotlight on matters of higher education or teaching, writing, public speaking, advertising and promotion, publishing, legal matters, long-distance travel, foreign affairs, or involvement with foreign cultures.

What one action could you take today to move yourself forward, in alliance with your personal vision?
