What have you achieved? It’s the question you must ask yourself if you want to harness the power of this week’s deeply revitalizing vibes… Today, Mercury stations direct (hurrah), marking the end of a three-week…
January is about to come to an abrupt end. On February 1st, the Sun squares Mars, bringing with it volatile energy fraught with frustrations, business and irritability. But before we turn the corner of this new month, the Universe is giving you one last chance to embrace the calm before the inevitable storm Mars is about to bring.
Today, the Moon is sitting pretty in the gentle sign of Virgo. Here's how to use this energy to make the most of the last few hours of January...
In today's collective horoscope, the Moon moves through Virgo, the organized, methodical and meticulous sign of the virgin (or maiden).
Moving on from heart-centered Moon sign Leo, this action-oriented Virgo Moon will likely inspire you to shower your time, energy and expertise onto others. But it’s unlikely to have you sitting around just listening to your friend's woes - Virgo’s restless drive urges us to tackle whatever needs doing head-on!
Devil's in the detail
The Moon here in this sign of the Zodiac also amplifies attention to detail. It’s a lunar transit favored by bookkeepers and editors – under a Virgo Moon sign, every ‘i’ is dotted and every ‘t’ is crossed. That pile of clean laundry still in the basket? Folded in minutes. Stack of old paperwork on the side? Sorted and filed. A Virgo Moon sign has the potential to turn us all into domestic Goddesses of the highest order!
Watch the nervous energy
Under the watch of ruling planet Mercury, be wary of the high-speed stream of nervous energy that can hit when Virgo’s in town. It's the most self-critical of the signs, and despite being overloaded with common sense, you could get bouts of feeling like an underachiever if you don't take enough time for self-care. This aspect of your well-being practice really does matter for earth-sign Virgo. So stopping every now and again to breathe deeply and smell the roses can be a wonderful (and much needed) way to ground into your body and appreciate how far you’ve come. Your self-esteem levels will love you for it!
This astrology also brings a meticulous planning ability. So this could be a good couple of days to strategize and diarise the next few weeks/months of your life. With such a strong sense of organization rippling through the collective horoscope, why not grab a calendar (or your iPhone) and start plugging in dates. You’re far more likely to get done what you need to later on if it’s written down in plain sight.
Some stargazers find they are physically affected by the Moon’s transit. As ruler of the digestive system, under Moon sign Virgo it could really serve you need to eat clean and help your body as it goes through its natural cycle of purification.
