I’ve decided to join a church. Not to feel closer to God or begin a religious practice (this church is non-denominational). But because I am desperate to be a part of a community where I can have experiences that are bigger than me. Where I can be inspired. Where I can be of service. Where I can experience enhanced spiritual growth, aligning myself with those who challenge me to step outside of my comfort zone and be all that makes me divine. I’m excited. I know this commitment will encourage me to begin fully applying my own soulful beliefs and practices - those of which you have read on this weekly blog - to my everyday life.
In case you are wondering, my decision has been influenced by a growing need to give. I’ve spent a nice chunk of my time here on planet Earth pursuing many different personal ambitions, getting degrees, and climbing the ladder of achievement in the workforce. I’m a huge proponent of success in the traditional sense, with a sincere appreciation for all things measurable. But I’m ready for a new kind of experience now, one that has no tangible reward. I’m right on point with my evolution too, as we approach the Virgo Full Moon scheduled for this Thursday, March 5th.
Virgo the Virgin is concerned with purity and distillation. It’s a sign that likes to dissect a problem for the sake of identifying very simple solutions. This is how Virgo operates at best, feeling a sense of pride and purpose helping others with this approach. But opposed the Sun in Pisces, the Full Moon is asking us to transcend the details of practical service, identifying ways to self-actualize without the need to be self-gratified. The theme of this Full Moon in other words is selflessness: performing acts for others with minimal concern for personal gains. Your horoscopes this week explain how best to utilize this energy that comes with the promise of otherworldly returns. Don’t forget to read for your Ascendant sign too.
