The following is an except from my latest book Numerology of Astrology: Degrees of the Sun. With some exceptions those born on the first of September have the sun 8 degrees in Virgo. These descriptions are written for old souls who have been on the planet many times and are nearing the time to face their dark side, integrate Self, complete the karmic cycle and evolve further into a new dimension.
The verbatim description is not going to exactly fit every single person with this degree. It is important to look at the archetypal meaning and adjust to the circumstance of the person’s life. Probably the name from this group that most people recognize is Dr. Phil.
8th Degree of Virgo
If this is your sun sign you long to assert your ideas and intellect far and wide in an effort to spread information to the many. You feel at home when you can manage the affairs of commerce or whatever endeavor you enter. Your attention to detail and orderliness catches the attention of your superiors and you have the opportunity to move up quickly through the ranks of your organization. There is a proclivity toward wanting to control issues and matters, and this desire for control will follow you through your life.
When taken too far you can be seduced by the temporary high of having control over the many. It is easy to be persuaded by manipulative personalities into compromising your own identity and that of the many in order to feed the appetite of the few. There is a karmic hint that you have made similar pacts in other times and places. Do you wish to sell out once more, or do you wish to use your access to information in a manner that enlightens the mass consciousness? Time will tell. Whatever your destiny you will at some time find yourself fascinated by education and communication and the spread of the word. Perhaps you will be a part of establishing new technologies and mediums of sending information.
You are likely admired by many for your accomplishments and are capable of attracting quite a cast of characters around you in your pursuit of the pleasures of life. You enjoy collecting the trophies that indicate success and reaching a point of prominence beyond that of your peers. You enjoy the games of power and will likely be amid the fray and fracas of politics and posturing of the powerful. You enjoy studying cultures and history in order to better grasp just how society functions and how you can get the most out of maneuvering through the web of social intrigues.
