The Gift of Peace, The Way of Healing
There are Three Lessons in Earth:
In Taurus, you experience the Lesson of Value.
In Virgo, you experience the Lesson of Perfection.
In Capricorn, you experience the Lesson of Fulfillment.
Today you enter a most special realm as the Energy-Forms shift from Fire to Earth once more. Each Fire sign of Idealisms, Visions and Enthusiasms is followed by this reminder that what matters in the end on this Mortal plane is this: “Does your fabulous Vision actually work; Did your Performance elicit a consequential response and result; Will your Truth align with Reality?”
In Leo, you strove to release from your center a truer expression of who you are. To the extent you had met and secured yourself in your Center (in Cancer), then you were able to let shine the Creativity and Love for yourself and for one another more truly.
But after each performance, comes the review. The Time of Virgo, and the place of Virgo in everyone’s chart, is when and where you must now use your most wonderful and necessary gift for critical observation, (and critical self-observation). Because this is how you grow, this is how you become an ever more complete human. You learn by trial and error, to see what works and what does not, you face the wonderful and painful consequences of your previous choices and actions for this very reason: so that you may lift yourself and one another up onto a higher plane of self-understanding and self-realization.
You do this for yourself, and for one another too. For the Virgo path is the Path of Service. We are here to create and provide for one another the very means by which we can remove imperfections in ourselves and in our works. The time and place of Virgo brings you to the fulcrum of your self-becoming.
You have come far along the path of self-awakening/self-unfoldment which will lead to your self-mastery and fulfillment in your human form. But as you look through the lens of Virgo at yourself (and observe one another), you will see revealed the flaws, deficiencies, errors and mistakes that have made you what you are today. Oh yes, you have ability and talent, but you look in that mirror of spiritual reflection/revelation and see so clearly all the work you have before you still.
That is precisely the point; this is what Virgo is for and about. Your present-day strengths, gifts, aptitudes and talents, where do you think these came from? Do you think a person like Mozart just happened? He struggled, probably through many, many lives to bring himself to that exceptional state of facility and refinement that flowered into a giant of musical genius.
But actually, (and quite often), genius is a curse as much as it is a blessing. Because that singular purpose/focus of exceptional qualities may leave other qualities lagging or absent. Spiritually, the true goal of human self-unfoldment is for you to achieve a dynamic and integral balance of Thought with Feeling; you are here to weave together your body, feelings, thoughts and spirituality into a most special and unique reflection of the Divinity inside us all.
But often we will compare ourselves to these “great ones”, especially those who did secure that greater measure of all their faculties shining and true. We look to the examples of Krishna, Buddha and Jesus, or in our age to someone like the Dali Lama or Amma, and say “who I am compared to them, look how little I have, how flawed I am in comparison.”
But take comfort, they were once like you too. They struggled and strove to make their way into the Light of the Greater Understanding. And most of them, the greatest of them indeed stopped right there, at the portal to the beyond. They were “done”, they had finished their Earthly path of Human Awakening, they had reached their Apotheosis.
They could have continued on their journey on their own, for there are worlds and wonders beckoning, and there is no end to the realms of Love, Light and Beauty. But they knew, because they understood that this is not “the way”.
And so, they turn in Freedom and Love, because it is not about “I” in the end, and knowing what they did, there really is no other way. They stand and wait upon you, and they will wait with love, kindness and compassion for each of us to make our way. The door will be held open, a candle will light the way, and you will be welcomed home on some joyful day.
For now, and in every life, you will strive for ever greater self-mastery. You will be guided by those who extend themselves in loving service to you, sharing their wisdom, lifting you up when you are weary, healing your body, heart and mind. As they share their experiences and knowledge with you, as they tell you their stories, you will hear your future echoed in their Mastery now.
And, as you turn, as you must because you know, you will extend yourself to those who need that kindly, compassionate assistance from you. You are part of an endless Hierarchy of Light and Love, and we are all here to Serve one another, to care for one another, to help one another to be better than we were, as we move together, ever closer to the crossing point into the Greater Light.
That is why Virgo holds the Path of Perfection, because we are all moving towards that sublime moment when we become all that we can possibly be. Yet do not be blinded by this goal of “perfection” as being perfect! There is no such state!! There is no final condition or destination for Spirit or for you.
All you can be, at any point in your journey, is more complete, a more wonderfully balanced, integrally whole shining star of love and light. You will find by this the greatest treasure that is sought by one and all, you will find yourself in a state of Grace, and you will meet your higher self in your place of Peace.
For this is the great Gift and Promise of Virgo. This Path of Perfection, which is found by this circuitous journey marked by Suffering and Healing, you will find that in the end you are beautiful, and you are loved and loving too.
You follow the path, that Truth is Love, and for all your days you will be at Peace as you walk in the Way of Beauty.
You will sing and you will shine, join hands and say to one another once more:
As I walk, as I walk
The Universe is walking with me
In beauty, it walks before me
In beauty, it walks behind me
In beauty, it walks below me
In beauty, it walks above me
Beauty is on every side
Surrounded by Beauty
Living in Beauty
Loving in Beauty
May you walk in Beauty
May you live in Beauty
For all your days
May you be at Peace
Surrounded by Beauty
It is done.
