August 21-27 2023 The Sun enters perfection seeking Virgo. It’s time to put it all in order. Mercury goes retrograde: review, renew, reorganize, regenerate. Mars enters Libra- perhaps a fight for justice will win.
Every year at the end of August the life-giving sun shines through the lens of Virgo for a month. This year it is the 23rd. You may feel a need to make your world deep down clean. I am talking about the nooks and crannies, suddenly Q-tips are useful beyond just clean ears.
If you are lucky enough to have a Virgo in your life, the odds are good you are the recipient of an ordered world. Don't take it for granted- Not all of us have expert assistance-Your mate will have your life streamlined and functioning smoothly.
Now is the time to clean up your Diet too. What level of perfection have you achieved? Are you eating locally? Do you grow your own food? Or is most of what you eat coming out of cans or from restaurants? Have you been exercising your body?
Become aware of your own energy and learn to release and remove that which is stuck. This will help keep you healthy and young. Virgo is intuitively aiming for longevity. A Virgo often ages wonderfully- all fit and vibrant. Yoga is a powerful technology for the mind and body. So is Tai chi.
Mercury goes retrograde the same day the Sun moves into Virgo. Look to perfect the systems in your life. Use this time to get things in order. Paint the bedroom. Clean out the junk drawers. Scan your living space and get rid of the clutter- it's bad for your energy.
Make room for the new in your life by literally making space. If you want a new couch, get rid of the old one, even if you can't see how you will get the new couch. The space will create a Vacuum and suck in that lovely new sofa.
Virgo is also about service. How can you help? Often, it is Virgo who will brew the tea and hand out the micro-nutrients. Virgo knows that your health is directly related to what goes into your body. The Virgo eye will question what the doctor is prescribing, distrust what might be in the water supply, and be the first to ditch the lotions, soaps, toothpastes and deodorant after learning of the toxic soup we swim in.
Virgo has a tendency to worry. Worry makes people crazy. In fact, it is the fear thoughts that drive a Virgo to perfection in the name of prevention. You will find that when you are proactive the negative worry mind subsides. Invest in a bottle of Bach's Rescue Remedy for when you need some gentle help to calm your mind. You may find Bach's flower remedy system of healing fascinating and helpful right now.
Mars moves to Libra on Sunday. More on that next week. Keep your mind open to learn new and healthy ways to improve your life. Much can be accomplished this month of Virgo. Enjoy the process of your progress. Practice makes Progress.
