Virgo, you’ve been connecting with some deep emotions that have to do with sexuality, intimacy, boundaries, shared energy and the use of power. April starts out with the New Moon in Aries, plunging you deeper into these realms. You like to have control, but Aries Season tends to be a time of the year that helps you release this need, allowing you to go deeper into your feelings. But you have to stay present and do the work, if not things will just feel uncomfortable, and like you don’t have a say over your personal space.
Own your feelings, own your desires, no matter how dark or taboo you think they may be. Own and face your fears, this is the only way to defeat them. If you do this, you will experience pressure during the process, but transformation and a sense of freedom and pleasure will begin to take over.

Worldwide social events may start to feel a bit out of control this month when Jupiter and Neptune meet in their home sign. I encourage you to find solace in your one-on-one relationships. Love is the best remedy for anything. Even when there are things we can’t fix, at least we know we can bring more love and connection into the world.
The Full Moon in Libra on the 16th is the best excuse you can get to take good care of yourself. Make your self-worth and your most basic physical and emotional needs a priority during the second half of the month. Indulge your senses!

VIRGO DECEMBER MANTRA
I allow myself to slow down. I breathe deep everytime I realize I’m not present with my body and my emotions. I know my body is my temple, and I take care of it and honor it as such. This is what allows me to show up in the world with my ambitions.
