Virgo [Aug 22nd to Sept 21st]
#MeTime: Your patron makes a rather quiet entry into the sign of the Leo this week. Leo is the part of your table at the Zodiac Lounge that we could call the “warehouse.” Warehouses are interesting places, because they hold space for the past (from damaged goods to returns) and new inventory coming in. Mercury in Leo is going to shine a light on all the things that you have to deal with in your “warehouse.” You got a sense of that a few weeks ago as Neptune’s waters started to recede, but now it’s “itemizing” and identifying the details, like feelings you’ve not acknowledged, neglected aspects of self-care, etc. It’s not all going to feel good, but you’ll be amazed by how much creative space you come to liberate as you go through this process.
#Heartstrings: The magical thing about forgiving someone is that it may sometimes transform the person you forgive, but it will always change you. With Jupiter and Neptune in strong vibration this week, working on your compassion and understanding muscles, forgiveness seems an apt issue to address. I know it’s become commonplace to say that you can forgive, but you don’t have to forget. However, I’m not sure that’s true. On a popular TV show, the focus was on the guest spot of a character with a photographic memory. She remembered every single detail of her interactions with people. Sounds cool, right? What sucked though was that she couldn’t forget any sleights and transgressions against her either. For that reason, she had trouble forgiving as well. It’s wholly possible that her capacity to remember could have been mismatched with her capacity to forgive, but that would still imply a need to let the past recede without surfacing. You may not need to forget, but it’s wise not to remember always. This doesn’t mean that you have to go forward as if the past never happened, but you can embrace the current moment as free of the past and unfettered to ANY conditions for the future.
#MoneyMoves: Venus and Saturn both move forward this week, perhaps relieving concerns and tensions that you didn’t even know you were holding. Although you’ve been working to get ahead, especially for the last three weeks or so, you may now start to see the fruits of your labor, just as you may have started to lose some faith. If that’s not happening quite yet, then, still, don’t lose heart: relief is on the way and your work will be honored for your efforts, perhaps even with a little extra recognition.
