Mantra: “When I strengthen my connection with Mother Earth, I open my channels to absorb the brilliance of the Universe.”
After four weeks of enjoying the fiery Leo season, the astrological winds shift. On Monday, August 22nd at 8:16 p.m. Pacific Time, the Sun enters the skies of Virgo, where it will stay for the next four weeks. As an earth sign, Virgo is connected to Mother Earth and all the gifts our beautiful planet offers us. Themes of wellness, healthy food, and conscientious living surge as we strive to live in harmony with our environment.
Ruled by intellectual Mercury, Virgo is an incredibly mentally agile sign, able to observe, analyze, and organize information. Out of the twelve signs of the Zodiac, Virgo is the most concerned with optimizing our energy with the finality of living a healthier and more grounded lifestyle. After all, Virgo season prepares us for the arrival of Fall in the Northern hemisphere.
One of the highlights of Virgo season arrives as soon as this weekend. On Saturday, August 27th at 1:17 a.m. Pacific Time, the Moon will renew herself in Virgo. Bringing a double dose of this sign’s energy, this lunation is a fantastic opportunity for a reset in any aspect of our lives that seems to be deteriorating. If you haven’t been eating well, begin a new eating routine. If your body feels stiff, make a shift by working out two times a week. Have you ever wanted to establish a meditation practice? This is an absolute perfect time to start! Virgo’s greatest dexterity is about excelling in all aspects of our lives—aligning the mind with body and spirit.
At this lunar event, the luminaries are clashing with Mars, adding a high intensity. Martian influence manifests as anger and frustration—but on the flip side, it can also manifest as drive. And in this case, it’s the fuel we need to charge ahead towards a new beginning. If conflict or resentment find you at this lunation, it’s your cue to set a big goal and begin anew!
