24th August - 22nd 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.

Energies can be very clingy and instead of flowing freely, clog up the spiritual pathways. Spiritual cleansing and purification rituals are needed to unblock and get rid of unwanted energies, whether it’s a bad vibe polluting the atmosphere or stagnant emotions that we can’t let go of and thus prevent us from moving on. Space Aromas can be added to the cleansing water used in such purification rituals.
Anointing oils are used to prepare the practitioner and tools for ritual work. The scented oil acts as a layer of protection, purifies the heart and focuses the mind on the task in hand. To create a scented anointing oil dilute about 5 drops of Space Aroma in a tablespoon of base oil.
Space Aromas are highly concentrated Essential Oil blends that should always be treated with due respect. Star Child creations are based on tradition and magic with intent.
