Tonight is the first quarter moon in Virgo, prompting us to make beneficial progress in the areas of work and physical health. Though Virgo is known as the perfectionist of the zodiac, this moon squares the Sun in Gemini, spurring change, flexibility, and less-than-perfect action. Gemini cares more about forward momentum than flawless execution, and Gemini, with its anything-goes attitude, doesn’t have much patience for what it views as Virgo’s over-calculated planning process.
This week, the key is to stay in the flow and allow things to move naturally. Trying to control things right now is a recipe for frustration and ineffectiveness – instead, be grateful for the steps you’re taking, even if they aren’t the exact ones you would have planned for yourself. There’s a reason for everything, and sometimes alternate approaches bring about the best solutions. One of the greatest things about the waxing gibbous moon is its potential for sheer magic – something that we often miss when we try too hard to put the finishing touches on our projects. Sometimes stepping away from the blueprint is the most creative thing we can do.
Work with the following crystals and stones to maintain flexibility and optimism while dealing with spontaneous change.
