In my house you will find a semblance of order, with stacks of papers and notebooks (and sometimes laptops and mail), overflowing bookcases, and the constant refrain of "Honey have you seen my (insert word of the day here)?"
It's not that I don't want to be organized or clutter free. When I walk into spaces that have neatly shelved books and organized office spaces, I take a deep breath and feel my shoulders drop down a few inches.
A few times I year I call in my mom for help clearing out and getting organized and for a blissful week or so afterward I am basking in the gloriousness that is structure.
Then it falls apart.
My dishes still get done and meals prepared and laundry folded and put away, but the organization, the beautiful decluttering of a space, suddenly becomes awash in piles and stacks once more. (and don't get me started on the closets and cupboards)
My Sagittarius fiery brain is ALWAYS thinking and planning and creating and as a result I am often way too many steps ahead of where my body is at in space and time. I literally have a reminder on my phone to come into presence twice a day.
So when Virgo season comes in, I am ecstatic about the shift of the waning Summer, I am thrilled with the idea of getting organized, I am buying school/office supplies I am certain will do just that in fact!
But underneath my exuberance is a general sense of unease. There is a rebel inside of me screaming "We will not do this, this is not how we work!" and also "You can't make me!" and then another part that is somewhat moody and melancholy rolling her eyes and saying "Here we go again."
What does Virgo season mean to you?
What shift does it create in your body?
