September's Virgo New Moon Inspiration
by Kathy Crabbe

As the New Moon rolls through Virgo this September 1 we "assess, analyze, organize...heal, weed, edit and discern." Since we are also in a Mercury Retrograde time from August 31 - September 21 we will add to the mix that it's a good time to, "practice and polish qualities into precious treasures" during this "symbolic "sleep cycle"; a time "to pause and go back over familiar territory, reflecting and giving second thoughts to dropped projects or miscommunications...leave matters that lock in future commitments until Mercury goes direct" on September 21. Quotes above are from my favorite datebook The We'Moon Journal.

Lefty Oracle Card of the month: "The Real Work has Just Begun" *

When you pull this card in a reading it means business. What IS your “real work; the work that matters to you on a soul-deep level? The work you MUST do before you die. Define that first. Then ask yourself; “am I doing my ‘real work’ consistently or is it even on my radar?” If your “real work” is still a mystery to you, it’s time to awaken to your soul’s calling and uncover your true gifts. You can start by looking back at your childhood and pin-pointing your favorite parts. Next, look at favorite current activities or times when you’ve been so absorbed you lost track of time. If nothing comes to you, ask a friend to point out your strengths or take the Strenthsfinder Test.

In my own life I purchased the Strengthsfinder  book, took the test and identified my top five strengths which helped me focus on my strengths rather than my weaknesses so that I could truly shine.
