Thank you for being you. I am eternally grateful for our paths crossing, and I hope my work can warm your heart today.
Today, Mother Moon has her magnifying glasses on as she paces through Virgo, the Mutable Earth sign of our Zodiac. Everything is getting a second look and receiving sound judgement under her light today. She is helping us to build a stable foundation for our independent goals that will ultimately lead to our freedom of expression. She generously provides light to Pluto (transformation) and Saturn (discipline,) both in Capricorn (Cardinal Earth,) as Venus (harmony) in Aries (Cardinal Fire) connects with Ceres (nourishment) in Aquarius (Fixed Air.) This evening she moves into socialite Libra, the Cardinal Air sign of our Zodiac, the place where we find our comfort in relation to others. She’ll be shining a spotlight onto Chiron (our trauma) in Aries (identity) this evening, when she will be asking us to unapologetically be our true selves when we do meet with the other.
As she makes her way through Libra, she will be met with some resistance - our value systems and our relationships are changing in new and exciting ways (Venus in Aries,) and this is going to require a recalibration in relationships, and even though Libra is the master of balancing the forces, the energy prefers everything to be smooth sailing, it doesn’t necessarily want to do the implementation work. Libra also has a reputation as a spendthrift, and while Jupiter (expansion) is in Capricorn (restriction,) we need to be mindful of our spending habits - not Libra’s favorite thing to do, like, ever. So, money may feel a little tighter than usual this week - there could be unplanned expenses coming up, forcing you to budget and plan ahead.
Libra really loves beautiful surroundings, but the wisdom of Libra is that true beauty lies within. An imbalance of Libra energy may be observed as someone who spends a lot of money on their external appearance or on external things, and judges those who do not live up to their materialistic standards of beauty or grace. We’re all divine creators - we’re all interconnected - to judge based off of appearances is our natural, conditioned response, but what if you took the time to look a bit deeper? Perhaps you’ll find a version of yourself, maybe years ago, and the wisdom you’ve gained since then is ready to be dispersed and shared with another. Giving another your time and energy is the ultimate act of love.
This Valentine’s Day, I hope you can share an experience or a conversation with someone who you may have disregarded, and perhaps offer your seasoned wisdom...provide them with the power you wish you were given many moons ago. Mother Moon will be in Scorpio by the time Valentine’s Day comes along, all the more reason to transform a relationship dynamic and make a move that is aligned with your higher self.
On Saturday, we have our Last Quarter Moon in Scorpio. This Moon will give us the extra push to let go of the unattainable visions of the Aquarius New Moon and to evolve into a higher expression of our emotional selves. Time to tie up all the loose ends and prepare to face the new. Next week, we’ll be slowing down, looking within, and pausing our projects before we begin our new cycle on February 23rd, when we have our New Moon in Pisces.
Thank you for reading along with me this week!
The Leo Full Moon gave me the courage to be back on video, so if you follow me on Instagram @virgomoonbotanicals, there you will find more content featuring my face and voice. I personally believe I’m a better writer than speaker, but I’m also trying to enhance my speaking skills and heal my camera insecurity.
And, as always, you can find my small-batch and handmade CBD-infused products on my website, virgomoonbotanicals.com, if you require additional help for the more difficult transits. This week I’m making a fresh batch of Salted Cacao Suckers, 10 mg CBD, and I will be updating the site with new offerings!
Sending love from my multidimensional being to yours…
