Moon in Virgo - The Moon in Virgo sends us back to work and gives us a to-do list. We become impatiently aware of what needs to be improved, fixed or healed. Our compassion is strong, but we can get irritated at less industrious folk.  This transit is a time to study, learn, train, organize and turn our compassion into pragmatic action. Don't get stuck in your head. During this transit, important issues are practicality, organization, cleaning up your diet or your house, healing your body or offering healing to others and attending to loose ends. After the Leo party, it's time to clean up our act and turn our attentions to the matter of our health and hygiene. Practical Virgo cleans the house, sets things in order, washes the dog, and harvests the vegetables. She purifies and organizes our diet, setting us on the road for the month. It is a time of taking responsibility and cleaning up the messes we've been leaving. Virgo brings painstaking attention to detail; housecleaning is a good way to work through a Virgo transit. During a Virgo Moon transit, women are mentally active but there is a tendency to excessive criticism both of oneself and others. Emotionally, it's a inward time, when we can reflect on personal relationships. Moon in Virgo is the best time to work magick involving employment, intellectual matters, health, and dietary concerns. Healing rituals for ailments of the intestines or nervous system are  also done during this period of time.   Those who born under a Virgo Moon sign are curious, responsible, caring, but need to cultivate gentle acceptance of self and others.

Water Meditation -  The Autumn Equinox time is associated with the Element of Water, the Element of our feelings and emotions and is one of the hardest to come to terms with.  There are no 'wrong emotions' - your feelings, whatever they are, are yours, and are not easy to control. However, what we can control is how we express our feelings and whether we let them get in the way of our lives. To help us it is often a good idea to take a little time to explore our feelings, to 'wallow' in them.
    Reserve the bathroom for a quiet time when you will not be disturbed. Decorate it attractively with blue candles,incense or burning oils, and perhaps even flowers. Run a warm bath and add a few sprigs of Lavender, Thyme, Chamomile and Jasmine; tie them into a clean flannel if you don't want bits floating about. Also add about 1/2 teaspoonful of blue food coloring to the water. Take with you 2 palm-sized stones, one dark and one light in color. Completely immerse yourself 3 times. Then take the stones, one in each hand and close your eyes and think through the things you feel strongly about in your life. As you hold the stones, place the negative parts in the dark stone and the positive in the lighter stone. After you have filed your emotions in this way, immerse yourself 3 more times. Later, place the light colored stone in a prominent place, and bury the dark one deep in the ground to take away the negativity.
