On August 23rd, the sun moved from the Lion to the Maiden, and we officially entered Virgo season!
It makes sense that this timing always coincides with the anticipation of the fall season and the school year, as the maiden represents innocence, purification, precision and the beginning of harvest time. She asks us to better ourselves and be of service to the community.
So while it also marks the winding down of Leo playtime—and there’s the argument that ‘schools kill creativity’ (RIP to educationalist Ken Robinson who passed away on August 23rd, 2020)—there’s still a discernible excitement in the air when the sun transits perfectionist Virgo and we begin to colour code the calendar to ensure we’re maximizing our productivity. But maybe that’s just the school nerd in me speaking.
Anyway, happy Virgo season to you! How are you planning to express your own productivity over the next 30 days?
