The SUN moves into Virgo on 8/23. Virgo is an Earth sign associated with wheat and the harvest. Roots to mother Earth are important. It is also traditionally associated with great attention to detail. Organizational skills and interests are heightened. Virgo loves to do things really well. This might be an excellent time to utilize an innate curiosity that also accompanies Virgo energy. Virgo is drawn to wisdom and loves to make sense out of chaos.

Each year from late July to mid August there is a powerful line up of celestial bodies while the Sun is in Leo. This lines up Earth, the Sun, the Dog Star Sirius, and Orion's Belt to form a powerful portal that peaks on 8/8. Manifestation is favored and supported. The leadership capabilities of Leo are enhanced by the other spheres allowing us to create from the palette of our most cherished hopes and dreams. Adding to the efficacy is the influence of the numeral 8. The 8 is the infinity symbol turned 90° and stands for abundance and proper use of power. All of these elements combined assist you to be the star of your own creative life.

ISD is a spiritual community that focuses on healing and intuitive connection, and the joy of finding the spirit connection within rather than being told how it should or could be experienced.

We welcome those who want to belong to a spiritual group of like-minded people, in which you can explore and find your own path in a community of love and support.
