ZODIAC LOUNGE: VIRGO THIS WEEK 8/12 - 8/18

August 22 - September 21

Virgo (August 22nd to September 21st)

We’ve reached the first quarter of a new moon this week. This means that it’s important for you to take a “measurable” step forward with a project or intention. I say that word measurable with a caution to you. I don’t want you to get too caught up with the measure part that you forget there are two other important things happening here. First, and foremost, is to take an action that’s just for you and your interests, as we discussed last week. Again, you’ve been devoting a good amount of energy to other people or working with other people and there’s only so much of that you can take before you may get too critical or persnickety.  Second, don’t get too excited about measuring that you forget to celebrate your successes. This is very important, especially during Leo season. It’s not a crime to honor yourself for your work, because you don’t get to have your work without…yourself.
