What’s your body telling you? Virgo is the 6th station in the sky, following Leo in the zodiac calendar during the summer season when life becomes established and we are learning how to take care of ourselves as individuals. Virgo symbolizes work and wellbeing; how we are serving the world as well as how we are serving ourselves. Virgo governs one of the two karma houses in the astrological wheel, Virgo or the 6th house having to do with our body karma based on how what we are putting out into the world manifests within us. Remember that your diet is not only what you eat. It’s what you read, what you watch, what you listen to and the people you associate with. Be mindful of the things you put into your body emotionally, spiritually and physically. In fact, your body is built with innate energy centers called ‘chakras’ that send physical signals when something is not in your highest good. Read on to discover the hidden spiritual messages in your body’s energy anatomy…

ARIES/ARIES RISING: Get healthier at work. Because we tend to attach our self-worth to what we do, it can lead us to overworking, doing work we don’t really enjoy, compromising our values to keep a job, or valuing what we do more than who we are. You may have fallen into the habit of diminishing the value of your life outside of work or admonishing others who you perceive don’t work as hard as you do. Onset of common cold or cardiovascular issues indicate you aren’t really feeling the greatest or expressing yourself in a fully heartfelt way. You may need to dialogue with a colleague, rearrange your schedule or adjust your routine. Identify habits, people or tasks that are limiting or causing stress, and vow to ditch them. Don’t stay addicted to misery. Then engage in activities outside of work that pump up your self-esteem, especially around 9/1-3 and 9/12-15 . Self-care is your healing tool.
TAURUS/TAURUS RISING: Get healthier creatively. Entertainment, festivity, pleasure or sex could help greatly if your creative juices have dried up. If you’ve been feeling lately that a creative or romantic endeavor is stuck in a lull, reach out to friends or lovers to light your fire. Feeling drained or depressed could indicate an imbalance between your rational and intuitive thoughts. Really this is just a test of your imagination and willpower to generate new currents of energy in your life. Do something out of character to re-spark your imagination around 9/1-9/4 and 9/17-18 such as attending an event you wouldn’t normally go to or hanging out with someone outside your social circle. Surprise is your healing tool.
GEMINI/GEMINI RISING: Get healthier at home. A literal shift in surroundings, simple as redesigning or grand as relocating, helps shift physical energy. Addressing family or household members could also clear the psychic airwaves. There might also be tension between a relationship and your career or social status. Symbolically, your emotional roots may need healing. Onset of allergies, asthma or nervous disorders like anxiety or nail-biting are the body’s panic response indicating fear of not having control of one’s surroundings, safety and survival needs. Emotionally resolve unfinished business from childhood around 9/3, 9/6-7, 9/13-14, and 9/21- especially memories linked to trust or betrayal, to establish a healthy spiritual home for your adult self. Breath work is your healing tool.
CANCER/CANCER RISING: Get healthier mentally and verbally. You are exploring themes of truth and deceit; what it means to give one’s word, to communicate truthfully, to make promises and keep secrets- whether it’s you or another person. Important conversations and access to information could arise this month. Issues related to the throat, esophagus, thyroid and sinus might indicate you are denying how you feel or creating excuses for disempowering actions, or have experienced those attributes from someone else lately. Write down thoughts about your moral code and what led you to rationalize your behavior, or allow another’s behavior, in a situation where you didn’t like how it was handled. Best times for reflection are 8/30, 9/13-14 and 9/28. Writing and speaking are your healing tools.
LEO/LEO RISING: Get healthier financially. Your values are being tested, so evaluate your spending habits as well as your private agendas with other people—these reveal if your external choices are in alignment with your internal values. Know what you value, what your worth, and treat others as valuable. Onset of lower back pain, slipped disks, menstrual difficulties or sexual issues could indicate certain choices in your lifestyle are incongruent with your inner self. Wherever you notice these incongruent values, imagine a different choice and outcome that would make you feel more aligned. Observe these matters especially around 9/2-3, 9/8-10 and 9/23. Visualization is your healing tool.
VIRGO/VIRGO RISING: Get healthier individually. You are in the process of giving birth to your higher self. This requires a sometimes painful process of breaking away from your family, a relationship or a former group that no longer represents you. Now is when you explore the power of independent choices and personal responsibility. Embracing your individual consciousness is as exciting as it is scary. Your entire framework is changing and issues with your body’s framework- joints, spine, skin- may indicate that. Keep focused on the present and how you want to feel about yourself in the immediate future; resist letting your behaviors or thoughts slip into your history. Instead of saying “Everyone in my family has issues”, say “My health and happiness are my own.” And keep your bodily framework limber to support the changes you’re undergoing especially around 8/30-9/1, 9/5-8, 9/12-9/13 and 9/21. Yoga is your healing tool.
LIBRA/LIBRA RISING: Get a healthier conscience. We are constantly having to confront our shadow, but it can be tempting to self-sabotage our spiritual growth because we secretly fear that fully empowered life will require more of us than we feel ready to deliver. You might be compromising what you know to be true or the best way, and deliberately using logic to distort or justify your lack of personal responsibility. Mood swings or panic attacks could be indicating that your conscience is catching up with you and it could be that fear, pride, or avoidance of change are at the heart of why you know better but are acting otherwise. Give thought to what you are avoiding and why- especially around 9/1, 9/6, 9/14, 9/23-25 and 9/28- then commit to yourself that you deserve to grow past that. Journaling is your healing tool.
SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING: Get healthier socially. You may be engaging in activities or spending time with people that eclipse your full potential. Look at your busy schedule of hobbies, entertainment, and socializing—are these truly beneficial, or are they just distractions? It could be that you are avoiding spending time with yourself for reasons you should get to the bottom of. Look at your list of closest social contacts—do these people empower you, or do they represent choices and values that are limiting in some way? Feeling paranoid, jumpy or forgetful could indicate you have temporarily lost sight of who you are and what you’re capable of doing in the world. Try working with various forms of divination and self-reflection, such as astrology or tarot, to get you reconnected with your divine purpose and provide a sense of forward direction- especially around 9/2-3, 9/13, and 9/19. Oracle cards are your healing tool.
SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING: Get healthier professionally. You’re experience a cycle of high successes followed by sudden rejections and failures to teach you about not needing the approval of others. To trust your own instincts and do what you really want to do- in spite of how it looks on the outside to others. Issues with hair, skin, nails or weight may indicate you have experienced a recent let-down and that you don’t feel you’re thriving. Until you believe in yourself without the approval of others, you will always be susceptible to feeling like a failure. Identify a recent time you failed or rejected, then consider at least one good thing you gained by pursuing that experience and put a note somewhere you can remind yourself each day of that inner quality gained. Seek wisdom from successes and failures around 9/2, 9/8 and 9/21, and look out for repeating cycles from January and June. Post-it notes are your healing tool.
CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING: Get healthier spiritually. You are on a quest to align your daily desires with your higher consciousness; what you’re used to doing versus what you know to be in your highest good. This is producing a need to explore and redefine what Truth is for you. You may feel a need to get away by traveling or taking alone time. Onset of depression or exhaustion indicates the deep separation you feel between maintaining your everyday material life while also balancing the increasing internal insights you are receiving. Give space for introspection that resets your compass to a more meaningful path around 9/1, 9/9, 9/18, 9/22, 9/25 and 9/28. Solitude is your healing tool.
AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING: Get healthier intimately. Sex and money are two of our most common power tools, and we leverage that power by however we give or withhold- or how we felt they were given or withheld from us. You are exploring themes of greed, fear, manipulation and trust around how you handle your power in intimate interactions with others. A sudden migraine, slipped disk, or lower back problem could indicate you feel uneasy about how personal integrity was handled in a recent situation. Dig deep and confront the underlying issue head on around 9/1, 9/10, and 9/18. Stick to your values, and check if you have disrespected the values of someone else. Sex or healthy confrontation is your healing tool.
PISCES/PISCES RISING: Get healthier relationally. How you interact with the power of others is being tested, and you are learning the meaning of healthy boundaries. Without boundaries you become disempowered, vulnerable to compromising yourself or compromising others in an attempt to gain more power from them. Sexual issues, liver issues or an urge to drink could indicate you feel someone is needing too much from you right now, or perhaps you might be the one guilty of demanding more than is appropriate. In interactions with others, try saying “No- thank you” more often and without any further explanation, you don’t need to justify your limits. Honor your boundaries around 8/30-9/4, 9/10-14, 9/21 and especially observe any reoccurring patterns from January and June. Assertion is your healing tool.
