Virgo/Libra Balsamic Moon—October 22
Only days before the eclipse at this point… it’s been one hell of a month—if anything, we’re feeling alive!
Mercurial undertones shift into Venusian undertones, only emboldened by the currently, and long-ongoing, Venus/sun build—hallelujah and holy Buddha almighty—today is the day the sun and Venus finally meet exactly in conjunction!
>angels are singing somewhere in the distance<
Which is to say, in English, that, symbolically or metaphorically, or even figuratively, speaking—we are emerging from our headspace and immersing ourselves within our heart-centers…
Some of the moods upon the day while the moon remains in Virgo—
Taking a load off and enjoying your own presence, as well as the presence of others in shared spaces… there may be reason to celebrate even, ‘toasting abundance’, or you may be provided, offered, or even have the need to request ‘special privileges’…
The overall mood upon the day once the moon has moved into Libra—
The initiating of something new… something through which “could make you sharply aware of who you are at your core…” likely through the reflection of an/Other.
Ultimately, overall—though, particularly through the exact conjunction between the sun and Venus (which governs the second portion of today)—the essential goal, here, is to find that inner overlap between your head and heart…
Perhaps the ‘special privilege’ is really just the personal location of such a precious place within yourself, a place more commonly overlooked, disregarded, or forever hidden or unfounded. This precious place within you is requiring a bridge… so that it may never be overlooked or disregarded again.
Finally, do yourself a favor and arrange to give yourself some downtime tomorrow… or solitude may come for you.
