Hello wonderful community!
I don’t know about you but all this Virgo energy coursing through the air is exactly what I’ve been needing. More on that in a minute. Let me share a high level overview on what’s ahead for the month of September!
Our incredible Sun will be in the sign of Virgo until September 23rd when it shifts to Libra for the rest of the month. We have a Full Moon in Pisces on Friday, September 13th and a New Moon in Libra on the 28th. This is just scratching the surface of all the astrological nuances but it’s plenty to work with.
We began September with a heavy dose of Virgo after the New Moon on August 30th. The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars were all in Virgo bringing much needed grounding energy for us all. Virgo is an Earth sign and after the heat and fire of summer, and Leo season, I will take as much grounding as I can get!
The thing about Virgo is that Virgo strives for perfection. There is potential for criticism (of self and/or others), anxiety, and/or burn out from feeling like nothing (including one’s self) will ever be good enough. Humility, patience and acceptance are all essential to keep in our back pockets, especially during this time. It can be very helpful to remember to see the perfection in imperfection.
There is a beauty in knowing we can absolutely do better - we can make room at the table for all voices, all bodies, all hearts; we can treat our earth mother with greater care and respect; and we can take greater responsibility for our role in serving the highest good for all. The real beauty comes when we realize we can’t do it by ourselves and that together, we become whole and perfect. We need to be real and honest about what we are each capable of as living, loving, breathing, imperfect beings and show up 100% with what we have to offer and let go of the rest.
This is where the beauty of Libra comes in. Virgo season provides the opportunity to recognize and fine tune the details of the ways in which we can be of service from a place of humility while recognizing and honoring the limits of being an individual. We then see the absolute need to be in this life together, with our loved ones and communities, to really get work done and to make the most out of this wild, wonderful, precious life. Libra honors that and asks us to partner up, to collaborate, as a means to restore balance and justice for all. When I say “all” I mean all beings, which includes this earth, all planets, celestial bodies, star dust,...each and every element and atom of this entire universe. I truly believe by honoring what each cell in my body needs and desires, I’m honoring what each cell in this universe needs and desires because I am intrinsically part of this entire whole, as we all are.
Now, let’s get to those moons! The moons this month are going to really support our dreaming up the possibilities of the ways in which we can work together towards equilibrium and justice. The Full Moon in Pisces on the 13th invites us out of our ego and into the greater consciousness where we can dream up expansive possibilities. You’re welcome to take this opportunity to let go of any and all criticism towards self and others that isn’t serving you any longer. This is also a great time to ask yourself: What is all this hard work for? How can my unique gifts, skills, and experience serve the bigger picture of what it means to be humxn? Can I allow myself to dream up all the possibilities of how I can be of service in a way that honors my limits and perfect imperfections?
The Moon will then wane until it is new again on September 28th in the sign of Libra, which is the sign of peace, of balance, and of justice. Libra is ruled by Venus - the Goddess of Beauty and has an affinity for all things that restore and soothe our nervous systems. This New Moon is the perfect time to set intentions that will bring more of these aspects into your life. What intentions can you set for the next 6 months related to the following: the restoration of your nervous system? your partnerships and collaborations that contribute to something larger than yourself? What is my role in bringing justice to the forefront and where can I show up, and with whom, in order to make it happen?
My heart and care is with you as we all navigate these heart breaking, heart opening, heart expanding times!
Thanks for being here and for being on this wild ride of life with me 🥰
