It’s the time of Virgo, when the little things matter.  When the single flower becomes as important as the great expanse of outer space. When the mysteries of the universe can be observed in the crevices of a stone. And our actions can be judged not by their magnitude, but by the precision and beauty with which we perform them.

This is an earthy time for studying what’s right in front of us.

A video for thought:

Did you know that a pound of strawberries a day can reverse esophageal cancer? That half a serving of broccoli a day can cut the chances of having a recurrence of breast cancer in half?  That meat is one of the worst things you can eat for your health? This video is full of valuable, detailed information and studies.  But the presenter tells some off-color jokes from about from minute 28 to minute 33.5, so if you may want to skip through those minutes. Otherwise, it’s just full of lifesaving information.

Some of the earthy colors of Virgo – soft grays, browns and greens (with just a little bit of Leo’s gold still shimmering) offer gentle healing in a detailed forest setting on a rainy day.
