Virgo Season: Ignite Your Purpose

By Rebecca Gordon of

To serve with purity of purpose is the theme for Virgo season. Each one of us is born for a reason, and Virgo season asks you to get clear on your purpose and how you may best serve humanity, both individually and collectively.

After Leo season and those unruly eclipses in August, our sun enters the feminine earth sign of Virgo. First, it’s time to cool off and pause—you deserve it! All of the recent changes in August will require you to reassess your values in lieu of the new direction and clarified purpose that is now taking shape in your life. Have a look at your ecosystem and notice the changes since last month.

You can trust this new life direction, although all of the details may not yet be clear. After all, Mercury has been retrograde and will again be full speed in direct motion by September 10. So have patience and wait until the cosmic dust settles. Even though Mercury technically goes direct on September 4, I like to wait at least 5 days after to commit to anything fully.

There will be a full moon on September 6 appearing next to the planet Neptune in the sky. This full moon will point to an area of your life where you are ready to lift the veil of confusion to see things just as they are: absolute truth. Combining this with Mercury going direct on September 4, your direction will begin to come into much sharper focus. Full moons are always times of closure and celebration so perhaps you are ending a chapter in your life so that you can focus on what is really important to you, and serve in a way that is meaningful to you.

The new moon in Virgo will arrive on September 20 and oppose the asteroid Chiron in the skies. Therefore, this is an ideal time to kick-start a new routine and get into a more healthy and efficient flow. The best time to begin is within 5 days after this new moon. Chiron indicates the need to heal and allow your body to rest and physically adjust to all the mental, emotional, and spiritual shifts you may have recently been through. It will be a time to release unhealthy patterns of body and mind so that you can serve with purity of purpose. Let’s welcome in Virgo season!
