Virgo's Critique

Vanessa Strauss - Thursday, August 29, 2019

Pronunciation 101

Let's be honest. The Australian accent is rather lazy. It has been theorized that the laziness was initiated by the drunkness of the first English speakers in Australia!

Today, Mercury (communication) enters Virgo (refinement) and now is the time to tidy up our speech.
Pronunciation 101 is the theme of our Vlog this week.

Mercury/Hermes, is the celestial archetype of the intellect, written & verbal communication, perception and magic. A new focus of consciousness begins as the planet crosses the border from Leo to Virgo at 5:48pm AEST Thursday 29th August.

Virgo/the Virgin is ruled by Mercury, she is an archetype of change and transformation wanting improvement of FUNCTION and TECHNIQUE. Virgo is the way-shower that strives for the ideal of perfection. Not for the sake of people-pleasing, but rather to experience personal growth and refinement within oneself. She is a restless archetype with a bottomless pit of hunger for self-assessment and diligence. Ultimately, the Virgin is waiting to be impregnated.

With Mercury's passage through Virgo, our perception, awareness and communications can be orientated towards FOCUSING on the DETAILS that are required to reach our full potential and magic. Our thoughts and words create our tomorrow and Virgo is desperate for the perfect experience.
