Practical Influences ~ Virgo

When the Moon enters a zodiac sign it adds instinctive reaction, unconscious predestination, sensitivity, emotions, intuition, imagination and emotional depth to influences that are at play; when the Sun enters a zodiac sign it adds vitality, individuality, will-power, creative energy and inspirational action to the influences at play; both affect the energy of our daily lives. Being mindful and calling upon these influences as well as utilising materials associated with them during these phases, will bring you closer to understanding your alchemical journey.

Ruler ~ Mercury

We see the crescent opening upward, a gesture of receptivity. This physical attribute of the Mercury symbol certainly falls in-line with the symbolic personality of this planet, as Mercury is the planet of open-mindedness, new ideas and intelligence. The circle speaks to us of formulating whole concepts, making ideas real and substantial. The visual journey of the Mercury symbol ends at an equal-armed cross. This is the final stage of solidification of thought. This indicates our thoughts have become manifest in the material world. Mercury rules communication, intellect, awareness, logic, reasoning, our manner of thinking, and how we create and express our thought processes.

Element ~ Earth

The basis and foundation of all the elements is the Earth. Earth is the element of stability, foundations and of the body. Earth is the realm of wisdom, knowledge, strength, growth and prosperity bringing a sense of duty, responsibility and reliability

Quality ~ Mutable 

Mutable qualities are about changes to go with the energy flow. Being adaptable and flexible and able to change expression to whatever a situation requires; Mutable denotes versatility.

Body associations ~

  • Nervous system
  • Lower digestive tract
  • Spleen

Notice if there is any tension in your digestive process, in your pancreas, in your liver, in your diaphragm. Our stomach is connected to our instinct and will-power; it aids in achieving harmony between out emotions and our intellect. Are you a dynamic, creative individual who has a gentle strength and good humour or can you sometimes be controlling and angry resulting in over-emotional insecurity?
