September is the birthday month for Virgo which is another reason why I
love September so much. All signs have their gifts and limitations but
there’s something so irrepressibly adorable about those Virgos.
Characteristically sincere, anxious to please, and loyal, I’ve yet to
meet a Virgo I didn’t like. They can be critical, picky and verbose but
rarely are they dishonest, narcissistic, manipulative or mean
spirited. Their gifts far outweigh their flaws.
If you have a Virgo friend or lover, consider yourself one of the
chosen. They dole out their love sparingly and likely you don’t even
know they love you but you can be sure if they’re hanging with you, they
love you because they’re just happy most of the time to be by
themselves. Virgo of course, is the sign of the Virgin but in this case
it’s not about sexual virginity but in a wholeness unto themselves way
as Marion Woodman (Jungian, Toronto-based psychotherapist who died this year) describes.
Virgos Like to Chat
Virgo sits in my mid-heaven on my astrological chart which helps to
balance and ground my Scorpio sun. It’s helpful in some respects when it
comes to work for example, but on the negative side, it further hampers
my ability to express those deeper emotions roiling around in my
Because Virgos struggle to express their feelings, they regard others
who can find just the right words to express feeling, particularly those
deeper and complex ones, with amazement and a kind of worship. Virgos
like to chat and will talk your head off given half a chance but it’s
more about what they are thinking, evaluating or planning than what they
love or excites them which can make them sometimes, a tad boring.
Practicality, attention to detail, and organizational skill is the
Virgo’s home space but in the realm of intimacy they have a devil of a
Virgos are sensitive and this at times will trigger anxiety,
hypervigilance and skittishness. This anxiety will mean they need to be
alone for a while and if you insist on hanging with them through this
period, they will get argumentative and snarly. Don’t think you can
make them feel better, unless they ask, in which case, go all in. When a
Virgo befriends someone, who knows how to do this dance well, they sign
on for life.
If you fall in love with a Virgo you’ll need to get used to a persistent
and subtle suggestion of criticism. Furthermore, their practicality
will perennially threaten to stomp on any urges to silly and spontaneous
fun, or outbursts of emotional effusiveness. Don’t expect too many
(any?) declarations of undying love. Likely your intuition will be honed
to perfection after a time. This isn’t because they don’t love you,
it’s just that they don’t trust their feelings to be true or
prevailing. Virgos trust their intellect and practicality far more. If
you can be grateful and appreciative of the special gifts offered by
the Virgo, you’ll have a life-long, stimulating relationship. If they
suspect usury or vanity, you’re finished and they won’t likely give you a
The Hermit Card in the Tarot
The Hermit card is the middle earth element in the Tarot’s majors,
corresponding nicely with Virgo. The Hermit stands for walking your own
path with a determined, tough exterior and hidden, deeply emotional and
spiritual soft inner core.
The Hermit chooses to be alone on this path. They have an idea or
inspiration in their soul that they must pursue, and they have no
interest in explaining, describing, or justifying it to anyone, nor do
they have any interest in enticing anyone to follow them down this
path. They aren’t taking this alone path to lead or follow – they just
know it’s right for THEM. The Hermit represents maturity, spiritual
awareness and insight and individualism.
September is one of my favourite months. Who isn’t super charged by
September? Cooling temperatures, migrations for everyone in the animal
kingdom including humans for school and work and best of all, as we’re
heading into the end of the month, glimpses of the spectacular colour
changes just ahead. I’ve been fortunate to live in university and
college cities all my life, so that September moving, back-to-school
energy is a welcome and familiar yearly ritual to me. I can see and
feel all the preparations for the big migration ramping up by mid-August
like a planting that will spring forth fruit within a matter of a few
short weeks. All those young, curious, nervous, smart people wandering
along the streets full of excitement and anticipation. The older I get,
the more I love it.
I started a new video series on my
youtube channel last month and I've had a overwhelmingly positive
response! It has been in my mind to create these videos for a couple of
years - ever since I retired the teaching part of my practice.
These Video Logs are samples of real life readings; the cards I drew in
response to the client's issue and question and how I interpreted the
cards' meaning. I've uploaded almost a dozen this month. You can

If you click the notification bell (beside the subscribe button) you'll
receive an email notification when I upload another video which should
be (hopefully!) at least one a week.

What Change Should I Make to Be Happier with My Life?
told my parents about our reading and I’m going to encourage them to
contact you. I may even pay for it, because I know that at the moment in
my dad’s condition he worries.
In any event, I wanted to thank you for your
warm and insightful reading. While I enjoyed the entire reading, I feel
that I derived the most value in my *aha* moment of realizing what I
must do next. I want to do a good job!!!
