Virgo (Elul)

The month of Virgo is the sixth month of the astrological year. This month corresponds to the sign of Virgo, which is an earth sign and is ruled by Mercury. The sign of Virgo is connected to practicality, working and serving others; people born in this month feel the need to achieve financial security and a desire to serve society.

Virgos find success in careers as doctors, nurses (or any healing profession), as social workers, service technicians, bankers, accountants, and in professions of beauty and fashion.

Virgos need to check and assess their actions. Like a businessperson that reviews the year-end profits and losses, it’s easier to criticize others than it is to see what is wrong with one’s self.

When they learn to love, honor and accept others as they are, without criticism, judgment, or trying to change them, this is when the Virgo correction is complete; once the Virgo experiences unconditional love, they have finished their correction.

Mercury in Hebrew is Kochav. Numerology value is Caf Vav = 26 = Yud Hei Vav Hei and Caf Bet = 22 = the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, which indicates that Mercury is a planet of communication.

Financially, Virgo is not an easy month. Many important changes might happen, including the need for new business ventures with new consciousness.

There is a large incident of immigration in this month, where more people find the need to leave their homelands in order to go new places, looking to change their luck.

In personal relationships there are more international connections and meetings, which means there is more openness to go out of the family circle to meet new people.

This is a month to contemplate the meaning of life, both in the personal and global realms.

GUIDE TO THE MONTH OF VIRGO

Assets of a Virgo:

Gentle, hard workers, detail-oriented, devoted, good friends, civic-minded, able to make quick judgments, extremely caring...

Main motivation:

PERFECTION

Negatives Qualities (and how to transform them):

Judges others by external appearances
Learn to ‘judge a container by its content, not its label.’ Look deeper into a person, and do not put so much importance on what they look like.

Reacts without regard for anybody else’s feelings
If you spot it, you got it! People are mirrors for us, so when we see faults in other people, it is reflecting something in ourselves.

Doesn’t accept criticism.
No one is right 100% of the time. Though you may be right 99% of the time, be open to what others have to say.

Impatience
Being patient with someone is actually a gift. By holding your tongue and listening, you are doing a great act of sharing.

Focuses on the small scale
Virgos have the ability to make great changes for large amounts of people, as long as they are taught to widen their focus.

Worriers
Virgos always see what needs to be done next, and this state of constantly being “on” makes them inclined to worry. On top of that, they think they have to do everything by themselves. You are not alone. It’s OK to ask others for help. In fact, it’s recommended.

How to improve relationships with a Virgo:

  • Don’t take their criticisms personally.
  • When they are being testy, it’s best not to engage them. It’s hard to tango alone.
  • Encourage them to learn how to relax.
  • Give them criticisms by proposing alternate solutions. Don’t just lecture them.

How a Virgo will find fulfillment:

  • Learning to see the big picture
  • Flowing with life and being happy
  • Letting go of the details; being careless
  • Ending judgment
  • Giving people that disappointed them a second chance
