How the Full Moon in Virgo Coincides with Your Cycle
Day 16: Pay attention to your thoughts, remember your estrogen levels crash abruptly leaving you feeling low. However, this can work greatly in your favour as the change your experiencing will help you see an issue you may be struggling with that you will see in a new light. A major breakthrough could be just on the horizon and may just need that discerning eye of Virgo.
Day 25: Feelings of things being difficult striving for perfection is draining even when you know it should be easy. You may just have information overload and there is no structure to organise it in. No wonder we have the feelings of failure begin to creep in. A change to your daily routine is ideal in the Full Moon of Virgo. Even if it’s just getting up five minutes earlier and decide what is the most important thing you want to get done. This will help alleviate anxiety, frustration and self-criticism and you’ll find yourself accomplishing more.
Day 26: We are told to strive for perfection in every area of our lives. Ambition is an important asset but it can be draining. Today with low hormones, striving for perfection can tip you over the edge into depression and anxiety. Coupled with the Full Moon in Virgo you may tend to feel this even more, Virgo has the ability help us achieve “relaxed perfection” always adapting and fine-tuning. Perfection is a destination not a starting point.
Day 27: Many women report trouble sleeping in the days leading up to their period. Lack of sleep can derail your whole health plan. Today is a day to invest in sleep, have sleep inducing foods like cherries, banana or a glass of milk before you go to bed. The extra sleep is part of a healthy daily routine.
As always, it is recommended you take time to do meditation, look at your nutrition and what you are putting into your body and how it’s making you feel.
