“A bald-headed man” 28 Virgo

This symbol is illuminated beginning 10:06 AM EDT September 19 to 10:39 AM EDT September 20.

Theme: Rich, fertile minds find their place; a hairy situation.

Inspiration: ‘Bald-headed’ is a condition of being without hair, adornment or disguise. ‘Hair’ is a special theme: both the lack of it and an over-abundance of it. Consequently, haircuts are of special importance, as are ideas, insights, and all shining moments that ensure an abundant harvest next growing season.

Today: Fertile minds and ideas can find their place even in a crowded arena. It is as if one’s idea or project shines a little brighter than the rest.

Simple ideas shine brightest. Words and messages cut right down to their simplest expression will out-shine the most elaborate, dense and deep presentation. But this also means that, if one has a big hairy mound of thoughts and suggestions, that they too can be cut down to a simple ‘parable’, haiku, or slogan.

Even in the situation where all that has gone before has crashed and burned, there is a natural opportunity for fertile ideas to set the way for a rich harvest still to come.

Do pay attention to haircuts today… its more than just hair. Also, there is no need to rush to secure a position in line. One will find one’s place even in the hairiest of circumstances.

The stories I could tell you about hair!

This Virgo placement can put a Leonine ‘do’ to shame.

And while hair stories may follow what appears to be typical lines… such as hare today; goon tomorrow… they are not so typical at all. In fact, there is a huge potential for empowering ritual ceremony surrounding the issue of hair and its cutting.

Just think of Samson and Delilah. Now that’s a story that puts Samson in a hairy situation by… cutting his hair. But fertility is a beautiful thing. Hair grows back, as do crops, burnt-out forest, real human commerce, and so on…

Fertile minds: Stephen King (author of hairy scary proportion) is a Sun in the Samson degree… happy birthday Stephen!

Fertile minds can pile ideas high… although I cannot confirm that ‘big hair’ like that of Nashville Divas has any connection with this Sabian symbol… but they can also cut them right down to the bare essentials, separate the wheat from the chaff so to speak.

Fertile mind: Seth Godin ( check out his many blogs on marketing such as…


Seth is a marketing Guru. He writes a great deal. His ideas are inspiring in that they get you to think in a different way. He takes simple words turning them into creative magnifying lens to create a fresh approach for getting your message across successfully… whether you are selling widgets or conveying ideas. The “idea virus”; the ‘sneeze’ and sneezers, the edge, the dip; the meatball sundae; the purple cow: from this list one would wonder what area of expertise Godin is addressing.

Check it out. The ideas only seem a little bit hairy from the outside looking in. But when you get inside you find Seth Godin to be a bald-headed man.

And that’s a good thing.

Wonder if he would send me his birth data????
