So the moon should be hitting its full stage by Monday night
as it enters the Virgo constellation. That is making this week a really fun
week in the US—we’re starting it by setting the clocks an hour ahead, then the
full moon, and we end it with Friday the 13th. If I were a
superstitious sort—I’d be planning on staying in bed all week. J
If you’re one who tries to understand how your mood changes
or is affected by the moon—the Virgo full moon usually has people feeling
finicky and anxious. Personally—I don’t need any extra anxiety in my life; I
manifest plenty on my own. Though no matter what sign I go with (star, rising,
or moon)—all three are able to handle the Virgo energy.
So what are some questions that one can ask during this full
Have I been too picky, pedantic, or
critical of myself or anyone else?
Have I been
humble to the point of underrating myself?
Have I been
of service to others enough this month?
Have I been
worrying and complaining too much, and thus attracting negativity?
Have I paid
enough attention to the details that I need to this month?
So if I were to number the above questions 1 to 5, my
answers would look like this:
don’t think that I’ve been too picky, pedantic, or critical of others currently
(though I have harbored critical thoughts of the world—but with the current
political, health, and environmental issues going on—that isn’t too
surprising). I will admit that I possibly have been a little too critical of
myself lately—but it has allowed me to notice (and admit) certain habits and
mindsets that really aren’t beneficial to me currently. Those habits and
mindsets will slowly be getting corrected over the next couple of weeks.
probably have been a little too humble when it comes to thinking of what type
of transferable skills I have for moving into an industry position. I’ve never
really been one to toot my own horn on anything—as I really don’t like drawing
attention to myself. But I do know that if I want to get a job in industry and
then make it up the ladder—I will have to start tooting my own horn, as there
isn’t anyone else who will do it for me.
been helping out around the house a little more, and depending on how things go
(namely how bad the coronavirus spreads over the next few months), I might try
to volunteer at the library or find a part-time job or internship somewhere
learning something new, but at the same being of help to others.
actually trying not to worry too much about things that I can’t control. I’m
trying to catch any negative thoughts that I have and then slowly rephrase them
in a more positive manner.
this one thing that I noticed that I’ve been doing—focusing too much attention
on a certain task to the determent of everything else I had on my daily to-do
list. Currently, it has been too much time trying to find companies and people
to reach out to at those companies, and ignoring spending time on crafts, and
meditation at night. This is something that I’m going to start correcting this
week—to where I only spend thirty minutes to an hour at a time focused on
anything related to my transition into industry, and then spend “X” amount of
time doing something else (knitting, drawing, journaling/reading, walking the
dog, going for a walk to practice my photography).
So one other thing people should look at is what house the
moon is moving through as well. For me, the Virgo full moon also correlates to
my 11th house or my friend zone. This is the time to try to focus on
the other people in your life, and is also a good month for networking as well
(so the universe is still trying to help nudge me along the path to a job in
is something I have been trying to do more of over the past few weeks (there
are actually a couple of webinars I need to go back, watch again, and take more
notes on how to effectively network), and something that I need to keep doing
basically until I decide what day/year I’m going to retire from whatever job I
have—and then I will probably still be networking, just not as extensively.
So what are some things that I can and work on during the
nightly, and trying to reframe all negative thoughts to more positive thoughts.
the best time schedule to where I’m spending time on different areas of my life
(personal & professional development, health/fitness, crafts, spirituality)
instead of being narrowly focused on one area.
notes for reaching out and networking more effectively.
Also remembering: Progress and not Perfection; Don’t fear
failure, fear being in the exact same spot next year; and work hard in silence,
let your success be your noise.
