Earthy fields ahead of us. Virgo season is coming along and bringing with it some stability, and it will begin by tying up loose ends. Leo season has been, as it always is, the highlight of summer. We’ve been encouraged to let go and be free of our own rules for a few weeks. We have been given permission to fly free of expectation and encouraged to play. We are so often tied to the demands of life that we forget to pause and enjoy all that we have built, humans forget that part, the seasons don’t. Nature calls in each season as a guide for all of life to follow along.
Leo season was inspired and filled with adventure, but the winds are changing once again as we move into Virgo season on August 23, an Earth sign, ruled by Mercury. This will be the final stretch of Summer before Fall and all its responsibilities come back with it. Since Virgo is an Earth sign you will be experiencing a little buckling down and grounding. Your goals and means of communication will be very clear and precise, and you will spend extra time to focus on the things you are looking to accomplish.
Virgos are known for their attention to detail, they do everything with flare and they do it right. This can be a great time to reorganize your home or office! Virgo will set high expectations and will set new standards for us all.
On August 17th, Mars enters Virgo where you will be focused on your work, perhaps it will be work that is inspired in some way to be of service to others.
On August 21st, Venus will also head into Virgo, where those high standards on matters of work will start to make their way into love and finances. A beautiful Virgo quality is the expectation for perfection, this is a time to raise the bar for the way that you have received and given love in the past, and how you manage your finances.
On August 23 the Sun finally arrives in Virgo, expect logic, practicality and stability to set in as you move through the month, we will be guided by rational thought and management.
On August 29th, Mercury moves into Virgo and will be home. Mercury is all about communication, and as we just shifted out of last month’s Mercury Retrograde, we can appreciate this time of clarity and stability in all things communication. We are finally on a path of knowing what we want and knowing how to get there, it is time to put together all the pieces of the puzzle.
This past summer has been a transformation, we have rewired old patterns and beliefs, we have let go of structures and emotional boundaries that held us in cages and we flew in every direction, because we finally could. This Virgo season is about coming back home, recreating a space that allows us to thrive and finding solace in it.
I often hear that your environment shapes your experience. Rebuild your environment to support the person you are have now discovered yourself to be and want to become. Give yourself a bigger and cleaner tank to swim and grow in.
As we move into the new moon in Virgo on August 30th, set your intentions on how to change your physical world, your work and your relationships. Write it down, say it out loud, plant your feet onto the ground and remember your place in this world, knowing that anything you want, is yours to have, you just have to make it happen.
On September 13th, we will have a full moon in Pisces, this will be a little pause for us all to come back to our WHY. Why do I want this? Why did I start? Why do I put my energy where I do? What is the bigger picture? This pause will give a moment to reflect and refine our purpose and in perfect time because just after we head into Libra season and shift into Fall, Saturn will be going direct again and will be kickstarting our will to work our butts off for all the things we are actively manifesting into our lives now.
Fall will be a whole new chapter and we’re all heading off on our own journey. Start making your lists and packing what you need now during this Virgo season!
Sending love and light to you all, xo Jasmine
