The Mood for September is initiated in the first week with a New Moon in the practical and solitary sign of Virgo. Popular culture refers to this intelligent and flexible sign as the virgin. But if you dig underneath the surface for the historical and mythological roots of Virgo you find the goddess in her many forms and incarnations. This goddess has a strong need for privacy, solitude and personal space. She’s comfortable with herself and indeed knows she is complete and whole. From this foundation flows her sense of equanimity and wisdom and her ability to be of true service in the world. When you think of Virgo these are the words that should come to mind – analytical, logical, private, contemplative, integrity, humility and service.
It’s no mistake we often associate September, the season of Virgo as the time we go back to school. Virgo very much reflects her thinking ruling planet Mercury in her logical and analytical approach. As a grounded earth sign, she seeks to convert knowledge into practical applications. Virgo is associated with food, nutrition, exercise and positive routine. This is the month to set some new intentions for your own education, habits and schedules. Include plenty of private time to give yourself the opportunity to just breathe and contemplate.
This is also a good time to de-clutter your physical environments as symbolic of releasing some of the mental clutter as well. Reserve a room or space where you can meditate, read, study, or just be by yourself. If you are attracted to one or more stories of goddesses or ascended masters this is the time to get a picture, book, statue or some other representation of their energy as a reminder and to bring the essence of their energy into your space.
If we want to be of true service to our families, communities and world it’s wise to follow the lead of Virgo and nurture ourselves with healthy habits and environments and by creating a dynamic balance between being and doing.
