Now let’s talk Virgo, aka the “efficiency expert.” This season is all about leaning into the structure of things and beginning the foundation of your pattern. Virgo is obsessed with the details, so carefully curate everything you will need for this astrological adventure.

The vibe for the month no matter what your sign is, from our resident astrologer, Ramona:

Hi Humans, it’s Ramona here with your monthly mini horoscope. Each month I will provide your much-needed vibe check and help you stay inspired for our cosmic journey together. 

Don’t forget to purchase the full Astrology Experience add-on to the KAL where you get added perks like access to the monthly “The Astrologer is IN “ knitting circle and astrology zoom session where we work on our squares, talk astrology, and give you a safe place to ask all your knitting and astrology questions. 

Welcome to Virgo Season where we check in with our discipline. We need that Virgo energy to keep us focused, efficient, and precise!

Do a quick ritual check – are you enjoying your day-to-day rituals or do they feel like work? Don’t get too critical if they feel like a bore, just shape-shift into something else. 

Ask yourself: “am I being too obsessed with a part of the pattern I cannot figure out? Do I need to put it down for a minute and get re-inspired?” Stay with it and don’t forget You Are Doing Great

See you next month, 

Xo Ramona
