Ideals and dreams,
hunger and longing
might hold us back – or
give birth to compassion
and inspiration to serve.
Priorities, schedule, here and now.
Organize and assess
what needs to be done and how to do it.
(hmm… anyone stressed?)
Innovation or sheer rebellion.
Breaking free to a broader vision of possibility.
Impatience with the details of daily life.
The challenge is to develop awareness
and break free of unconscious compulsion.
To know when to forge ahead and when to detach.
There is no singular solution.
There is no key that fits all locks.
Each one of us has a personal puzzle to solve,
an original design to integrate,
a unique door to walk through.
Virgo New Moon focuses on skillful synthesis.
organization of workplace,
essential health practices.
continually bringing perfection into the continual mess.
“But life at its best is a creative synthesis of opposites in fruitful harmony.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dark moon passage leads to
the Equinox threshold.
Find equanimity. Make peace.
Realize the details,
Unravel bureaucracy’s knots,
discern nature’s design.
Renew devotion to your purpose,
this is your Sacred Life.

Practicality and efficiency have a voice and need a place to land.
Listen to the message of simplicity – what is it saying to you?
What attitudes, things or routines are breaking down and need to be discarded or repaired?
What are the essential practices and priorities in my life?
