Gemstone Affinities
Virgo is a practical and well-organized sign. As befits its ruler, Mercury, Virgoans are analytical and discriminating. Moonstone magnifies the inner aspect of situations, enabling Virgo to get to the nub of the problem or experience. Always seeking perfection, Pearl helps Virgoans attune to the ebb and flow of life. Opal taps Virgo into universal harmony, helping them to achieve their health goals. Health—or lack thereof—is a peculiarly Virgoan fascination. This helps explain why Virgo seeks to understand the psychosomatic nature of disease.

The Moon of Harvesting (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
This period is one of gathering together and receiving. This is the time to see what your seeds of labor have become; to harvest and use the potential inside. The influence is one of discovery.

Earth Element
Virgo is an earth element—practical, careful, reliable, and resolute. They impart form and structure.

Material and sensual earth signs like to enjoy the pleasures of life. Earth shapes matter. Earth is the element of the material world—it’s stable and grounded. Practical and productive, it’s concerned with self-sufficiency and security. Earth signs are sensual signs. This is the element most involved in the physical body and the senses.

A Mutable Sign
The epitome of perfectionism, Virgoans are reserved, modest, practical, discriminating, and industrious. Analytical and painstaking, they seek to know and to understand. 

Zodiac Compatibility
Virgoans in any relationship are classy, intelligent, and witty, but they’re most compatible with Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. 

Famous Virgoans
Mother Teresa (Aug 27), Michael Jackson (Aug 29), and Hugh Grant (Sept 9).

Living Legacy


Hibiscus by Laurie Buchanan

Hibiscus by Laurie Buchanan

The culmination of our life experience—how we spend or invest our life—is our legacy. It is my perspective that a legacy is not about leaving a sum of money behind. Rather, it’s about our contribution. Whether we’re a global citizen like Mother Teresa, or a local citizen, our legacy is permanent and has lasting impact. Intended or not, as individuals we influence others. Our actions and inactions; the words we say or leave unsaid, each have an effect—positive or negative—on others.

If Divine Love is our compass, our legacy will reflect inner wealth. It will be evidenced by health, peace of mind, joy, gratitude, contentment, quality relationships, loving what we do, emotional fulfillment, integrity, the list goes on. We may not be wealthy, but our life will indeed be rich. And our legacy will be one of true and lasting value. Have you thought about what your legacy will be; what you will be remembered for?

Listen with your heart,
