Harvesting the Wheat

Currently in the early evening Western sky you can witness bright fixed star Spica, the tip of the wheat stalk in the constellation of the Virgin Priestess, and slightly above her Saturn while just off to the side is Mars. During the next few days Mars will cut between Saturn and Spica metaphorically separating the wheat from the chaff. Simplifying, getting to the basics, harvesting the fruits of your labors(making pesto or red sauce or applesauce), presenting your gifts to the world all in good order now… Oh yes and with Mars and Saturn coming together into conjunction right now there are options of responsible disciplined action and the feeling of driving forward with one foot on the gas and the other on the brake among the possibilities. While we can’t always choose what happens we can choose whether to enjoy the ride or not.
