So much Virgo energy this month!!  We have the Sun and Mercury in Virgo, and on the 15th of September, we have a New Moon in Virgo forming a conjunction.  What an incredible time for analytical thinking, reasoning, and expression.  So many minute details to pay attention to, so much filtering of important information to do.  What a critical time to have this energy surrounding us.

These days leading up to the election for a new president brings so much controversy, confusion, divisiveness, sensory overload, and sometimes even feelings of loss of control in our own belief system. The media plays such a big factor in trying to persuade us one way or the other, and we tend to feel almost like puppets being manipulated by self-serving egos! This one calls this one a liar….the other calls the other a liar….one says these are facts…the other says no, these are facts, and we are in the middle thinking what am I to believe…..who is right….who is wrong….who truly cares.  I found myself involved in many controversial subjects this week, and it was difficult to have discussions with any sort of respect, though I sincerely gave it my best shot!!  Virgo wants us to be humble in our thinking and our words.

So what do we do? We edit out that which we recognize as obvious distortions of words that are clearly misrepresented to persuade us to one’s own views. The Virgo constellation that our Sun is now passing through brings an energy of discernment, analytical thinking and reasoning, logic, ability to pay attention to even the smallest and most minute of details. Use this gift that we are given to come to your own conclusions. Open yourself up to humbly listen to all views, and then use your own analytical reasoning to do your own editorial work and draw your own conclusion.

It is difficult not to fall into the whole hoopla of the political world, but it is not beneficial to us as human beings, to our spirit when we fall into the trappings of ill will towards others just because of a difference of opinion. In truth…..that is what they want, is to pit one against the other for their own benefit. Know your own truth…..use your own better judgment. Again, difficult to do. Use your own editorial abilities to say no….these are my facts! Regardless of who it is you favor, respect others and humbly listen to their side, as well. You may just learn something you didn’t know, like it or not.  But do so respectfully and without insults. This is the only way that we can learn from one another and stand together as human beings that do not wish to be manipulated by any side. That is the most abusive insult there is….the game that is played on us. Analyze.

In your yoga/meditation practice this week, bring your awareness to your Throat (Visuddha)  and Third Eye (Ajna) Chakras.  The Throat for the ability to clearly speak and hear your own truth and to honorably express yourself, and the Third Eye for integrating information and using your own intuitive guidance for perspective and to curtail judgment.   Our practice is our best friend….it puts us back in check when we’re veering off the road of respect for one another.  And that applies to all aspects of our lives… life, our relationships with our children, spouses, work relationships.  It’s easy to stray and lose focus causing disturbances in our own inner peace and love for another. 

Paramahansa Yogananda said: “Softer than a flower where kindness is concerned…..stronger than thunder where principles are at stake.”  Believe in your truth and have your opinions, but be clear that they are YOUR beliefs, and not those of the ones who try to influence you.  Be strong in your truth, but be kind and respectful when voicing them.  Hard to do in today’s atmosphere. 

Love to all, Debbie
