It’s Virgo Season! Happy Birthday To The Virgins Of The Zodiac….

Today the Sun shifts from the warm fire of Leo into the sign of practicality and analytics- Virgo.

As the Sun shifts from Leo into Virgo, the celestial tone changes considerably, and there’s a slight calming effect.

Coming off the heat and passion of Leo (doesn’t it seem that Leo season was never ending?), we are ever-so-ready for the wise and practical energy of Virgo.

Where Leo pushes for intensity, Virgo says: “stop, slow down, analyze and maybe just maybe after we’ve analyzed everything to the end of the earth, we might take some action.”   These are our Virgo’s!

Virgo’s are introverts at heart.

Remember, you don’t necessarily have to be a Virgo to embody the essence of this sign. Anyplace in your chart where Virgo falls, you will likely possess this energy.  Your rising sign and Moon being the top two, but anywhere else as well.  

*For example- I am not a Virgo, but my Mars , Jupiter and Saturn all fall in Virgo- giving me quite a bit of this energy, and I definitely feel this energy in those areas of my chart!

Virgo falls under the element of Earth and is our second sign of the Earth signs. Therefore, Virgo’s are very grounded, but can be so grounded that fun gets pushed to the back burner!

Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, the mind.

This sign is intelligent with a sharp and inquisitive mind.

Virgo’s can be super sensitive but it takes a lot for them to truly feel and express their emotions, as they often intellectualize and analyze them frontwards and backwards before they will honor them.

Notice the word analyze comes up a a lot with this sign?

They are problem solvers.  They love a good mental challenge.  They are always willing to help others.

In fact Virgo’s typically feel the most useful when they are helping others with their own challenges, as it gives them a break from their own internal dialogue that never stops!

At their most positive, Virgo’s are wise, witty and well-spoken.  They are intelligent, practical and reliable. Very detail oriented and meticulous, they are great organizers. Virgo’s are very hard workers and are typically very accomplished.  They expect nothing less than the best from others and this goes for themselves as well.

At their most negative, they can be over-analytical, picky, and critical.  They can be obsessive as well to the point where it becomes a real problem and causes physical ailments, such as anxiety and heart palpitations!

Because they expect nothing but the best from themselves, they expect the same from others and often have too high of expectations.  They can also be cold, detached and aloof due to their analytical and earthy way of approaching emotions.

In the Tarot, our Virgo card is none other than, The Hermit– card number Nine (9) of The Major Arcana.

In numerology, ‘9’ is the number of the loner.  It is a solitary number, and as such often walks the path to enlightenment on it’s own.  Much like our Hermit, below.

*This card is from the Morgan Greer tarot deck*

HERMT

Under the time of Virgo, much like our Hermit, it’s time to walk our path.  Go within and ask yourself : “Am I living in my truth”?

Also, this is a time to get philisophical and rid ourselves of outdated patterns and beliefs that are no longer serving us.

If you have wanted to cultivate a spiritual practice, now is the time.  Meditate, pray, purify your Chakras.

 Be still, be present and listen to your intuition.

The Hermit knows what it feels like to walk the path to true enlightenment and lights his own torch along the way.

The path may twist and turn but ultimately, it will take us where we need to go.

Don’t be afraid to go deep and do your soul work.  This is the perfect time under Virgo(Hermit) season– plus we are still under several retrogrades including Virgo’s ruler- Mercury!

Due to the potent connection of this Mercury Retrograde to Mondays fateful eclipse, this Mercury cycle will give you great insights into what is standing in the way from the path to your purpose.

So this is a great time to be a ‘Hermit’, literally!

Don’t be afraid to go within.

Be still, be present, listen to your intuition.

Honor what you feel.

Say what you mean and mean what you say, but choose your thoughts and your words wisely.

Mercury Is Retrograde Along With Saturn, Pluto, Uranus And More! Reading For The Next Few Days…

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

It’s midweek, and I am finally getting this post out!  I have been having some technical difficulties-thank you Mercury Retrograde 😉

I meant to get this out Saturday, and then Monday, then  yesterday, but alas….I finally got it.

Hope you all are staying sane throughout this cosmic craziness!

The energy is wild right now, and this Mercury Retrograde is primed to be a surprising and wacky one.

Mercury turned retrograde this past Saturday, the 12th,  and stays this way for 23 days- stationing direct again on 9/5.

The effects of the retrograde are felt a bit longer as there are what we call ‘shadow’ days before and after the actual retrograde.

As long as you are aware (this is key) of the energy and how it affects us ‘down here’,  I truly feel it can take you to your most authentic place.

Let’s break this down a little further.

Mercury rules the mind.  The Sun rules the essence, the soul.

Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun when it’s direct- when it stations retrograde, it gets even closer to the Sun.

Mercury and the Sun have a very close relationship.

The way we talk to ourselves, the truths that live in our mind (Mercury)  become our reality (Sun) under the retrograde period!  Use your words and your thoughts wisely and keep them positive.

What we think is what we become.

Mind over matter.

Mercury purple

As I always say, use the Retrograde time to Reassess, Release, and Realign.

This is key- and expect the unexpected!

Pay attention to how and what you are communicating.  Slow down.

Keep in mind, Mercury is retrograde along with Saturn, Uranus, Pluto and Neptune. That is five planets backwards at the same time!  Five!  This is really slowing things down so have patience, this is key.

Let’s not forget the intense energy from the Solar Eclipse that passed on 8/7 and the Total Solar Eclipse that is to occur on 8/21.  We are right in between two very energetic and rare energetic flares, plus all of these retrogrades at the same time!

As above so below.  We feel this, make no mistake.

Important to mention- because Mercury is an inner Planet,  (along with Saturn as well ) we feel the affects on a more conscious level, more deeply.  As inner planets they move quickly and create quite a stir.

With Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, these are outer planets that move very slowly throughout the sky.

The effects of the outer planets are much more subtle.  They are still felt, but on a much more subconscious level.

Please watch the video below for more insight for the coming few days.  (I recorded this on Monday).

Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon in Aquarius Tomorrow…What This Means For Us

Happy Sunday!

The Lunar Eclipse happens tomorrow at 11:50 AM, in the sign of the independent and eccentric humanitarian- Aquarius.

Eclipses are not negative.

Regardless of what you hear, see and/or read, let me repeat: Eclipses are not negative and they always come in pairs.  There will always be a Solar Eclipse two weeks before or after a Lunar Eclipse.

*There’s a Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Leo on 8/21.

This eclipse tomorrow is a Lunar Eclipse- meaning-the Moon basically moves into the shadow of the earth.

Purple

Eclipses can seem scary because they tend to bring that which is hidden out into the light, and it might not always be positive.

Eclipses represent change, plain and simple.  Endings and beginnings take place at this time, and change is often resisted, but ultimately, it is inevitable and needed.

This a highly emotional time.  Energetic.  Intense.  Potent.

Don’t we all seem a little edgy, and well, cuckoo lately?  It’s this energy!

Venus, the planet that rules how and what we love and value, is in Cancer until 8/26. People are very emotional, and besides that, we are feeling and absorbing others emotions as well.

Eclipses tend to bring in a clean sweep and often with a turn of events we may not be expecting.  That can seem scary but remember: Uranus is retrograde as well as of 8/3, so expect the unexpected but also remember: Uranus will always leave you better than you are found!

One of my favorite sayings as of late is :

When something goes wrong in your life,  just yell “Plot Twist”!  And move on

This definitely defines the next couple of weeks!

The key to Eclipses is to note that they are typically indicative of turning points in our lives.  This can be both on an internal and external level.

A sense of fate surrounds eclipse energy and we really need to be as present and as centered as possible in order to work with this energy constructively.

A lot of important events in our lives take place on, around, or in between eclipses.

It is also important to mention that the signs the Eclipses happen in make a huge difference as well.

The Lunar Eclipse tomorrow is highlighting opposite signs- Leo and Aquarius.

The Sun is in Leo for this Eclipse while the Moon is opposing in Aquarius.

Leo loves to shine and be in the limelight- the word ‘royalty’ comes to mind with the sign of Leo.  Leo has the need to be seen and heard at all costs.

The Sun shines brightest in Leo-this sign is creative and this will highlight all of your unique talents and what makes you ‘you’.  We want to leave a legacy with Leo- we desire to be known for our gifts.

How will you handle this energy?  Will you show up and show off?  Allow your light to shine? 

The Sun does not shine so bright in the opposite sign of Aquarius.  Aquarius is more detached and more concerned with the collective rather than individual needs.  Leo is the North Node (where we are going) while Aquarius is the South Node (where we have been, the familiar, the past).

Aquarius likes to stick to the facts, that which makes sense.  Aquarius falls under the element of Air, meaning, the mind- everything must be intellectualized before it is expressed.

Will you stick with the tried and true, rationalize the emotion away?  Stick to the facts and not go into your heart and soul?

Obviously, these are two very different energies but the trick is to combine them both to get you to your most authentic self.

It will be very easy and comfortable to stay in the past, to feel the need to break free from the ties that bind yet feeling it might be easier and more beneficial to stay with the familiar.  This is the challenge under Eclipse energy: Where we have been (South Node) Vs. Where we are going  or where we desire to go (North Node).

At this time we should all be reevaluating our place in this world.  Where we fit in, where we feel we don’t fit in, our sense of purpose.  A lot of soul-searching at this time.

How we connect or disconnect with and from other people, places and groups.

There may be a disconnect between head and heart- again , emphasizing the Leo (fire & heart)/Aquarius (Air/Mind) polarity.

I suspect we will be hearing quite a bit over the next few weeks in regards to those of royalty and politics-(Leo).  It’s important to stay connected to that which is important, the heart center.   Controlling what goes on within because lets face it: we can’t really control what is going on without and under the Eclipse energy this will really be emphasized.

Tomorrow I will have a reading for the week ahead, so stay tuned.
