The Virgo phase (August 22-September 21) teaches you so much about yourself.. Like, the most efficient use of your energy and time, or the best way to prioritize your goals. The Earth element symbolizes the container and foundation for this. Virgo activates the discernment and critical thinking that’s needed for your ultimate well being.
- The agricultural goddesses: Ceres and Demeter overseeing the ripening of crops and the inevitable harvest… They remind you to take stock of all that you’ve created and accumulated. Questioning if it represents who you were, who you are, or who you are becoming.
- The helper, the healer, the selfless hard worker. Checking in to figure out if you’re overstepping your boundaries with helping others is a good practice. As is conscientiously working a little harder to get what you want. A current transit of Chiron is making healing the self even more important now.
- The priestess, the oracle, the keeper of the temple..the vestal virgin. The primal meaning of ‘virgin’ was originally one of the self-contained woman. Self sufficient. A mistress of her own self. Some of us on this sacred path have denied some of our power and inner-knowing-ness because of past life memory or persecution. Connect to the elements of your personal safety and wisdom for greater illumination and on-point intuitive messages. Your ‘Virgo within’ knows what’s best for you.
What to watch out for:
Everyone inner Virgo will be activated now too..so be aware of the negative aspects…..too much sacrifice, negative self-talk, undermining yourself and others. Here’s a few more…
The New moon September 16-18 enhances and amplifies the attributes of Virgo. It’s a wonderful opportunity to create some order out of chaos for:
Seasonal changes are inevitable. Coming up with some fresh ways to pull together some great looking outfits is time well spent. Even if it’s just for a zoom meeting. What accessories might change it all up? Sometimes the details make it amazing.
If it doesn’t fit or the style looks terrible on you- please give it to goodwill and make room for better stuff. There are lots of things for me to clear out now, as I lost 35 lbs so far this year. Want to know how I did it? Check out Phase 2 of Better foods for better moods.
Clear it off! When you organize all your supplies, and ritually put your most used stuff within arm’s reach, you’re ready when inspiration hits. Creating a more practical filing system for ephemera you want to keep feels awesome. Tending your finances responsibly, often, and on time feels so abundant. Feeling focused and purposeful is easier when you’ve got some space to give something important the attention it deserves.
To be really great in little things, to be truly noble and heroic in the insipid details of everyday life, is a virtue so rare as to be worthy of canonization.Harriet Beecher Stowe– (Virgo Rising)
Tidying up and giving away (or throwing away) some of your some of your unloved stuff opens up ‘white space’ in your life and mind, for even more lightness and inspiration. If you’ve got a confused mass of anything, or a collection that means nothing to you anymore, see how it feels to release it.
Practical, logical Virgo thinking is easier if you create a little bit of solitude and quiet time. Guided meditations in the Sanctuary help keep you distracted from the mundane yet focused on healing, transforming or connecting to the goddess within.
Sacred Body Awareness
Virgo activates your Clairsentient system, and if it feels “off” ..it probably is! Create time to tune in to your body’s signals. Become more attuned to the body’s wisdom with sacred movement to learn more about the messages that your holy body wants to share.
What if you start off with a healthier food shopping list from freshly curated recipes?
