We have two options:
1. to find the inner critic, or
2. to find the inner healer.
Virgo is smart, methodical, organized, questioning and perfection seeking. She wants to make it all right and fix everything. This sign is also one of a natural healer, an empath, a medicine person who knows just the right combination of herbs, foods, plants and exercises to bring anyone back to wholeness.
There are all these signs, planets, feelings and stuff swirling and shifting, and we have two choices on this Full Moon: give in to the inner critic, the one who saw death in the white owl and decides to focus on all the things that are wrong, the problems, fears, feelings and decided now is the time to fix it — which will probably lead to more frustration, anger and fear. Or, invite the inner healer to the Full Moon party: the one that recognizes and honors the need for healing, love and self-care so that when the time is right for action, she will be fully present and capable of making sustainable change.
What can you do to welcome the inner healer and release the inner critic? Take a look at your exercise and eating habits. This is a great cycle to start preparing the garden, weeding out the old, cleaning out pantries, fridges, medicine cabinets. Connect to water and earth; do a detox or cleanse. Maybe get a massage, see an ayurvedist, nutritionist, acupuncturist or other teacher you have been wanting to seek out. Perhaps have your astrology chart read. Go to more Yoga classes, take more hikes, and maybe even get to the woods or beach.
Listen to those wild winds, look to the Full Moon and open your heart and mind so that you can honestly hear the response to your own wishes — and be guided through the rest of this magical and magnetic cycle.
