Raising Consciousness for Personal and Planetary Harmony

August 23, 2006    Vol 4

The Ocean of Spirit has become the little bubble of my soul.

The bubble of my life cannot die,

whether floating in birth

or disappearing in death in the ocean of Cosmic Consciousness,

for I am indestructible consciousness,

protected in the bosom of Spirit’s immortality.

Paramahansa Yogananda

Notes for Sun in Virgo

This September carries much introspective energy. While Leo desires approval, and creates drama when it doesn’t get it, Virgo is the wallflower. Cultivate contentment, and count your blessings. This energy can also attract criticism for those who haven’t learned the lesson of humility.

With the Sun in Leo it was all right to be playful and childlike. Once Virgo enters the celestial play, it is time to grow up. Being mature, industrious, and practical are necessary traits. But working all the time just to keep busy is fueled by inner emptiness. So celebrate your oneness with life by fulfilling your duties. Then rest and enjoy the harvest of your labor.

Virgo has a tendency to deny what it does not like. Simultaneously, it is a great healer and an analytical thinker. Are you suppressing or ignoring something?  Do not be afraid of the truth. This is a time to break apart and put back together what does not yet fit properly. Improve yourself!

Beware of the need for perfection though. Blame, excessive criticism, and imagined guilt are born out of expecting perfection where none can be found. One by one dodge your expectations of false purity. The perfection you are seeking is in your own heart. See yourself in others, feel the unity underlying all diversity. Find fault with your ability to persevere in this, but not with who you are or with others.
