an energy update for the Virgo new moon 2022
just do you
The new moon in Virgo on August 27th shows us where we need to stop striving for perfection and just accept ourselves as we are, do our best and be real...
An immense amount of energy can be wasted trying to be perfect, trying to fit in, trying to succeed without drawing negative attention. In a human world pursuit of perfection is impossible, it squeezes the joy out of life and makes life a chore as it relentlessly judges mistakes and inadequacies.
“If you look for perfection, you'll never be content.” ― Leo Tolstoy
Look at nature, there are no straight lines, nothing is identical yet it is perfect.
You are perfect as you are, sure you can always do better and that’s life. But as you are now is who you are, and this version of you deserves love and joy just as much as your imagined perfect self.
Just do you...
say what you want to say
Whether it’s speaking, writing or listening, communication is charged up at this new moon. Resist the urge to hold back, be transparent and say what needs to be said.
Remember it’s not what you say it’s how you say it, of course keep communication compassionate and mature, but let it out.
What will happen if you say or do something?
The question is, what will happen if you don’t say or do something?...
Letting things stay the same doesn’t always mean it’ll stay in balance. Balance requires movement and stillness, the tried and true and the new. If you want to feel inspired and balanced there needs to be new elements.
If things are feeling stale, habits are getting tedious or you’re in a rut, embrace the new and do something different. Swap things around, change things up, talk to different people, get off your beaten track and see new things with new eyes.
Be reasonable though, there’s no need to freak yourself out, just move the routine around, try new things and experience new feelings and opportunities.
