24th August - 23rd September
When the sun enters Virgo harvest is upon us. The fruits of the season must be collected and sorted out - those that are good to keep must be preserved, pickled, dried, ground into flour or frozen, and they all need to be labelled and marked. Virgo likes to keep things organized, lest it gets overwhelmed by a flood of items it can't place. It is a detail orientated sign, very particular, nit-picking even, about its sorting job. It has a keen eye for any flaws and is quick to point them out, but finds it hard to give or accept praise. Virgo's biggest mistake is to judge the rest of the world against the same standard she sets for herself, for it will inevitably result in disappointment. Virgo also signifies the healer. Her keen eye determines the harmful influences that lead to disease. It is not a sentimental sign and has no qualms about speaking the truth, even if it is uncomfortable or hurtful. Yet, it is secretly afraid of judgement and that is what holds Virgo back from coming out with their own creative works. Rather than taking centre stage, Virgo is happy in the supporting role, or does the make up and helps others to shine (telling them afterwards how they could have done it better). Virgo's excessive criticism can be crushing. Perfection is an ideal rather than a reality. It's what we may strive for, but never achieve, because in time there will always be someone who finds a way to improve even on the best of things. The ultimate is condemned to being the penultimate ad infinitum.
Star Child Astrological Candles reflect the colours appropriate to each sign or planet. They can be burnt to create a special ambience at any time, though their soft light is particularly conducive for romantic occasions. Candles are widely used for spiritual and magical work. Ritualistic candle burning aids concentration on a specific magical intent. As you focus on the flame visualize your intentions being consumed and transformed into ethereal thought forms. Energy follows thought. To turn your dreams, wishes and visualizations into realities, follow thought with action, charged with the cosmic energy of the sacred fire. Our Astrological candles are charged with our unique magical infusions according to their planetary and astrological association.
