Hello, darlings! I know that it’s been a minute since I’ve written anything for the blog. I started picking up more responsibility at my day job, so I’ve been adjusting to a new routine. We had the full moon in Aquarius on August 11th. I spent the duration of the full moon releasing old energy. I noticed that I’ve been way less overwhelmed by the thought of manifestation. It’s been a lot easier just to let it go. We are now in the shadow period for another Mercury Retrograde and Uranus Retrograde. These retrogrades are made out to be worse than they are. You may not even notice the energy shift. If you’re being met with resistance or returning issues, slow down and focus on mindfulness.
From now until September 22nd, the sun is in the sign of Virgo. Virgo is a mutable earth sign; represented by the Maiden. Ruled by Mercury and the Sixth House, Virgos are grounded and intelligent. Virgos can benefit from creating routines that help them manage their time and effort. They’re very detail-oriented and hard-working individuals. Virgos are loyal, patient, and humble in their interactions with others. They run the risk of becoming critical of others when they’re challenged. A Virgo may come across as narrow-minded in conversation. They can have perfectionist tendencies and can be unreceptive to help when asked.
Notable Virgo people: Beyonce, Alexander Skarsgard, Blake Lively, Chris Pine, Zendaya, Salma Hayek, Keanu Reeves
Other Virgo Placements
Do you have any Virgo placements in your birth chart? You may value productivity and reliability in yourself, as well as others. The only Virgo placement that I have is my south node. While the north node reveals your purpose and direction, the south node will show you what you possess at birth. This area will feel comfortable and familiar. You’re called to release this energy to move toward the energy in your north node. With a Virgo south node and a Pisces north node, there’s an importance placed on leaning into my intuitive side. At times, it’s natural for me to think too logically about a situation. I overthink when it’s beneficial to check in with how I feel.
A Virgo Moon may strive for perfection, often finding emotional fulfillment in a win. They may appear to be grounded and collected. They may keep their emotions under the surface to deal with them on their own. They are usually harder on themselves than anyone else. They see the small details of an issue, often before others would notice.
A Virgo Rising may step into a social situation slowly. They may appear shy or detached from others at first. Since they are good with details, they may be the one planning group outings. You will be able to depend on this person as your friend.
