There's something so very Virgo about back-to-school preparations. This year, I'm working on something just as exciting as the first day of class!
There is something so very Virgo about back-to-school preparations: gathering supplies, organizing transportation, scheduling classes, paying fees, sports and study groups, timetables and spreadsheets, uniforms and textbooks, essays and examinations. This week as the Sun moves out of Leo and into Virgo, we may all feel some “back-to-school” jitters - even if we graduated many years ago.
As I’ve said before, Astrology is first and foremost a nature tradition. Its symbols and significations are derived from the seasons and the coordinating movements of the heavenly bodies. So what can this season tell us about the sign of Virgo and how can we make the most of the current energies?
In the northern hemisphere, where I live and where tropical astrology originates, there is a bittersweet feeling to this time of year: there’s still a lot of great weather ahead of us, but the light has softened and the nights have cooled; there’s a great bounty of food to enjoy but much work remains to ensure that it will see us through the long lean months of winter. There’s a duality embodied in this “double bodied” sign. Its enjoyment of light, warmth and abundance is always slightly tinged by the awareness of scarcity, cold and darkness to come.
So, how do we stave off the darkness?
We start something new. We throw ourselves into a project. We learn a new skill. We set a course for self-improvement. We get on with the business at hand, in true Virgo fashion. We roll up our sleeves and get to work.
This year my preparations involve something completely new, but just as exciting as the first day of school. I am busy preparing for the launch of a new monthly membership - the Cosmic Coffee Club! Together, we will explore the ancient wisdom of the stars, mine the planetary movements for opportunities and prepare to meet the challenges of our changing world by leveraging the astrology.
Drawing on your insights and comments, along with conversations with friends, colleagues and clients, I am thrilled to offer you a place in this new astrological community where we can learn and grow together. If you want more meaning and beauty in your life, if you want more flow, if you want to feel a deeper connection to life and to the Cosmos, join me for this journey. It’s going to be a blast!
More information on membership options and registration will be available soon. In the meantime, I want to hear from you. What do you want from a monthly membership? How can this community serve you? I love receiving your feedback.
Happy Virgo season my friends,
