It’s a week to be a work horse as the Moon wanes in Aries and Mars holds its place in Virgo. It’s time to learn how to organize our lives, and how to keep it that way for the better.
Reevaluate everything you’ve been working on Aries. A waning moon urges you to downsize. Adjust your plans based on what you can do, instead of what you want to do to avoid crashing, burning, and giving up.
Maybe rewatch Marie Kondo.
Mars is in Virgo this week, so you might be feeling a little more hyper-focused than usual. A fellow Earth sign can get behind this hardcore restructuring, but you might not be feeling so hot about being subpar this week. Remember to keep your health in mind, as Virgo’s perfectionist energies and Aries’ can-do attitude will affect how you’ll reach your goals.
Consult with Aries on Marie Kondo.
Your wit’s extra sharp this week as Mercury trines with Jupiter, but the waning Moon tells you to focus all that conversational energy on maintaining your relationships than creating new ones. It’s time to negotiate any toxic behaviors between each other (be it friend or significant other), so you can strengthen the bonds of your support system.
Temper your twin.
Spring cleaning is your favorite hobby, but with Virgo’s energies in Mars, Mercury, and Venus this week, your tendency to criticize might go overboard. Remember that the truth will always hurt, so the best way to deliver it is kindly.
Maybe it would help to count to 100 first.
The fire that your season brought is starting to transform into the mutable energy of Virgo. While you might not be the spotlight of the universe anymore, life will go on and you must now focus on maintaining everything you’ve started the past few weeks. The detail-oriented Virgo energies will help you through that, so it might be an uncomfortable time for you, but you’ll come out of it with a stronger sense of self.
Be thankful for your 15 minutes. Not everyone is given a second, even.
The planets are aligning to amplify your Virgo-ness. You’re about to shine this coming Virgo season, so you’re getting a comfortable confidence boost. While you’re probably itching to start organizing everything as neatly as inhumanely possible, the focus should be on creating healthy boundaries between your work and your personal life.
But you do you. It’s 14:59.
Bid your indecisiveness a temporary farewell, as Virgo steps in to make things seem a little more black and white. You’re going to feel a lot more analytical starting this week, so use this to respond to the waning Moon’s energy. Ask yourself this question: how can you build a better life? The answer involves putting your foot down in terms of toxic behaviors directed at you.
Use the wisdom, well, wisely.
This week is about coming through. Everything you do, you do with purpose, but Virgo is here to help you get where you want to be in the best way possible. An action plan is what you need to focus on this week. On the relationships note, harness the waning Moon in Aries’ energies and initiate some significant changes to how you love and how you’re being loved.
Start feeling good about yourself.
Later this week, Mercury trines with Jupiter, making conversations flow easier and better. You’re feeling harmonious as things are falling into place, but the voice inside you is telling you that maybe there’s more to this. While your gut might always be true, let’s not confuse this with a fear of settling down. The energies from the waning Moon in Aries encourages you to build better foundations, and that involves sticking around.
Sit your ass down for a while, Sagi.
Virgo is usually known to be the reliable worker who can get things done, but if your Capricorn sensibilities take this surge of work energy the wrong way, you can end up being too rigid, internally and externally. Don’t work yourself too hard—try to work towards working smarter, and this will involve creating healthier boundaries between work and your personal life.
TL;DR: Lay off work and grab a drink! Your friends miss you.
You have a tendency to put your loved ones first, and that’s okay, because you draw from this energy. You just have to play the right cards because it’s easy for you to become blinded by the bad habits you might be surrounding yourself with or participating in.
Take cues from a Virgo and reorganize your life with the goal of starting a new chapter with stronger foundations.
You love doing things in the name of wholehearted service, and Virgo, your sister sign, can come challenge that with the onset of Virgo season. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as you’ll start learning better ways to fulfill your purpose. Take a look at your priorities, and compromise where you can, because the only way you’ll reach your goals is if you lay off on dreaming and start working on making it come true.
