Lot’s of changes happen this week. Let’s dive in!
Each astrological season allows us to tap into energies that help us navigate our way through life. Over the last month, we have traveled through Leo season, which is about creativity, self-expression, self-understanding, and getting in touch with who we are. This month, we move into the sign of Virgo, and although it’s not as glamorous or exciting as fiery Leo, it’s pivotal for self-development.
Virgo season is about life management. In the mystical Kabbalah, Virgo is called Elul, the month of Teshuvah. Teshuvah is the practice of reviewing the past year, recognizing the mistakes we’ve made, trying to do better in the future, and moving on. The key is THE MOVING ON and managing your life in ways that serve your greater good. Also, since Virgo is a sign associated with health, it’s an auspicious time to get a checkup or being a health or exercise program.
Now, on with the forecast.
