August 22nd ushers in Virgo season and Tarot Card Key 9, The Hermit.
Check out these astrological highlights during Virgo season:
8/25 Mercury in Libra - Our communication tends to be more gentle and eloquent, we are able to convey our message into the world more easily. This is a time of being diplomatic and assertive, to weigh in on both sides while maintaining the middle ground of observance and understanding. We are able to not only see truths, but truth beyond our own, and the bigger picture in general.
8/27 New Moon in Virgo - This New Moon is good for setting intentions around cleansing, getting organized, troubleshooting and fixing the things that are in need of repair, being of service to others and accepting a assistance, getting the hard things done and doing the job right, and making better health conscious decisions.
9/5 Venus in Virgo - This is a time where our partnerships are built on friendship, mutual respect and trust. The way we show our love is through thoughtful and practical acts of service rather than overtly emotional expressions. Despite not being Romeo vibes, it can be rather sensual through practical means, it’s all in the details. Be mindful of sacrificing your own needs and wellbeing as a result of trying to stay busy or so for others, and mistaking nitpicking for pushing your partner to success.
9/9 Mercury Retrograde - Our written, verbal and even non-verbal communication can become unclear, confusing, delayed or outright deceptive; tech gear and modes of transportation (forms of communication and travel) may also malfunction. Check out Mercury Retrograde: To Fear, or Not to Fear.
9/10 Full Moon in Pisces - This Full Moon is good for reviewing and releasing things concerning laziness, escapism, illusions, fear, and oversensitivity.
Here’s a look ahead at what Virgo season will bring or how each zodiac sign can work with the energy of Tarot Card Key 9, The Hermit. To get a more well rounded picture, look at your Sun, Moon and Rising zodiacal signs.
Aries - Two of Wands RX - Take a step back and work towards personal goals and alignment rather than going out and conquering the world. When we are able to center and align ourselves, we are able to better see the path before us, and to proceed out of Divine alignment and Will. Go back to the spark of the Ace.
Taurus - Six of Pentacles RX - Be mindful of your resources this month, physical or otherwise. You are likely to find yourself in a situation where you are giving more than you are receiving or vice-versa, either way the exchange is not equal. If you give, expect nothing in return, and if you find yourself in need, do not let pride get in your way of asking for help.
Gemini - Seven of Cups RX - There may be a lot of possibilities before you and not all of them are what they appear to be, but your intuition is letting you see them more clearly as if the smoke has cleared and you have a new set of eyes. If you are still not able to make a decision, start with the process of elimination beginning with what you KNOW is not for you first.
Cancer - Eight of Pentacles - Now is the time to focus on your work, the rest of the world will have to wait as you have important work to do. This isn’t about just getting the job done, it’s about honing your skill and perfecting your craft. Practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect; so if you’re going to do something, do it to the best of your ability.
Leo - Page of Cups - Is your imagination flowing and creative juices flowing from the Divine? Perhaps you begin hearing the faint whispers of Spirit guiding you or a new opportunity that will fill your soul is only mere days away….However the Page or their fish comes to you, know that all things begin in the heart and the mind before they manifest in the material.
Virgo - King of Cups - Ride the emotional waves with ease and grace. You not only have control of your emotions where you respond rather than react, but you also extend this outward into the world towards others through empathy, compassion, and balanced diplomacy. Even through the darkness of the mud does the lotus blossom. You are in your element.
Libra - Page of Pentacles - Plant the seeds of what you would like to see manifest and tend to your garden, nurture it daily. This is more than expecting a financial offering or opportunity, it is something that will help create long term growth and success in these areas later on down the road. Perhaps you are learning something new or refining a skill.
Scorpio - Temperance RX - Moderation and finding balance internally and externally. It’s about making sure that you are taking care of yourself and freeing yourself from the things that are holding you back or preventing you from living your purpose. Have patience in the journey and know that you are moving along the path, and that you are where you need to be at this moment in time.
Sagittarius - Six of Wands RX - A private achievement, a fall from grace, or the ego stepping up front and center. If you have been working on something in private (maybe some self-development) then expect some victories this month; this can also be about you “winning” incognito. Make sure to check your ego and don’t gloat or you face a fall from grace.
Capricorn - King of Swords RX - Mental clarity and truth seems rather fuzzy, almost like you can’t get a grip on either. Your intellectual prowess may be challenged and relying on higher consciousness to direct your actions and inactions will be more difficult than usual. Be careful with your words, and take care not to use them or your intellect as weapons.
Aquarius - The Fool - Don’t think too hard, just do and let Spirit and your gut be your guiding force to propel you in the direction you are intended to take. Sometimes the best plan is to not have a plan, to go merely by instinct. HOWEVER, you will have to step out of your current element to prevent fear and anxiety from past experiences from holding you back and taking chances.
Pisces - The High Priestess - Tap into your intuition and inner knowing, gazing upon the veil of the mysteries, and perhaps partaking in the fruit of the Gods from the Tree of Knowledge. This is a time where your focus needs to be on connecting with your emotional body, the Divine Feminine within, and your spiritual studies. Sit in silence and stillness for the answers.
