Taurus 16° (May 6)

Today is the day I transition from going back over what has already been done to, bearing all that this process now pretty much now entails, getting up pre-dawn and moving the needle rather quickly through this entire process, working doubles for about two months, in order to bring this major project home. It is probably the most challenging task I have set up for myself, and one that is occurring during a time of severe duress on many levels. But with each move of the needle I am also going to commit to my health on all metaphysical levels. Friend came by to help turn on the water, but we had the wrong part. The resident evil went on the attack and threated us again and then ironically called the police…on himself? This is the last straw and now we will get some sort of restraining order. Anyway I have work to do:Indeed, when darkness descends on Virgo it can be most disconcerting. What friends don’t understand is that to lift herself up again, it sometimes takes a complete change in social atmosphere. Nothing gets you down more, Virgo, than feeling stuck in situations; and, though you process things rather slowly, keeping surrounding thoughts and feels of dissatisfaction in others, in particular, to yourself. This is highly ironic because you make no secret about being treated shabbily bycertain people or in certain circumstances—in fact, your running monologue of complaint is centered on feeling snubbed or unwanted or ignored by those who “should” appreciate you. But those to whom you are making your protestations? The so-called friends you don’t hesitate from using as your sounding boards? Well, you may be loath to admit it, but sometimes they are just placeholders for you. Then, out of the blue there comes a day when you look around at your social sphere and you find yourself in the doldrums—again your, shall we say, realizations, have been slowly churning on route to surfacing—and, seemingly suddenly, you come to the conclusion that the your being dragged down into emotional hades is due to the company you keep, that your slowly, darkly, descending personal hell is others. And so, without a word of warning to what has become, in your estimation, a tired crowd, you simply go poof; and you do so, especially, (read: always) when there is a more desirable social circle giving you the hi-sign. A lesser evolved Virgo will justify this by taking on a victim identity, projecting blame onto stymied others, while convincing herself that she deserves a more aspirational milieu. A more self-realized Virgo would take responsibility for her sentiments and not wait until “better” people and situations came along before abruptly ditching out; she would taper off her involvements and perhaps—perish the thought—take some alone time to soul-search and prioritize her feeling goals. Because, chances are, Virgo, you will just repeat this pattern time and again, altering your personality to be what you consider appealing to each sphere you enter into, only to ultimately dump it as well, the reason being you eventually tire of trying to fit in rather than letting like-minds and suitable situations gravitate your way as you focus on becoming increasingly your true self, not one manufactured for others’ acceptance. There is nothing more pretentious than pretending to be something you’re not so others will embrace you, not to mention it being just another form of arrested development held over from junior high.
