The Leo lunar cycle guided us to share our lives and empower others for the greater good. With the new moon rising in Virgo in Uttara Phalguni on 18 September, we will be guided to focus that Leo energy into practical ways for self-improvement and/or helping others. This energy can be felt as early at the 14 September and continue up until the 21st.
Virgo is the feminine side of Mercury, which enjoys being analytical and mastering whatever task is at hand. An imbalanced Virgo will feel like perfectionism and unfocused multitasking. Consider being more receptive to guidance regarding what needs improving. Focus on one or two projects, three maximum if they can all be given equal attention.
Virgo also rules diet, health, intestines, nervous system, and bowels. Because it is ruled by Mercury, it is connected to the throat chakra. Be more aware of what is consumed through the ears. Conversations, music, and city noise are included. Balance mental Virgo energy with the empathic Pisces by acknowledging your feelings, bodily sensations, and connecting to deep emotions.
This sign, based on my observations, tends to trigger some people to eat their emotions. If possible, be more reflective as you move about your day. Notice what people, events, or thoughts that may lead you to consume larger than usual amounts of ‘comfort foods.’
Meditation is a practice that helps practitioners become more aware of the mind and body. A daily practice, even five minutes, can be beneficial. Applied in everyday life, the practice of noticing changes in the breath can bring more awareness between calm and anxiety. You learn to remain calm over what you cannot control.
