Flower Essences for the Capricorn Moon

Ambitious Capricorn craves achievement and enjoys endeavors that challenge her to develop mastery. She is practical and disciplined and may feel compelled toward leadership because of her desire to make a meaningful contribution to society. This can be expressed through her career or through a calling in her local community. Patient and pragmatic she is able to delay gratification for the sake of clearly defining and reaching her long-term goals.

Earthy by nature, she stays connected to her inner authority and creativity by developing routines that align her with the body, her higher knowing, and a connection to mother earth. These practices help her to manifest a lifestyle that is congruent with her authentic passions.

Conservative Capricorn values tradition. Her standards for relationships are high. She may be cautious about opening the door to her heart because she wishes to cultivate connections that offer her consistency, grounding and commitment. Her need for privacy may give rise to a struggle with vulnerability, which can result in feelings of loneliness. It may be healing for her to cultivate relationships with people who are older such as mentors, elders, and bosses.

We live in an overly-driven technological and media-defined culture that reveres earning money for the sake of security, status, and materialism. This intention leaves many people feeling enslaved to professions that leave them out of touch with their body’s natural rhythms and functioning in workplace environments where they are unhappy, drained, and feel de-valued.

Flower Essences for the Virgo Moon

Virgo is the devoted healer, the physician, and the humble worker bee who is motivated by the urge to be of service to others. She finds fulfillment through the development of meaningful skills that offer autonomy and an internal sense of competence, pride, and integrity.

Virgo wants to develop practical skills. She may be interested in work that involves health and the body such as yoga, complementary medicine, bodywork, nutrition and healthcare. Virgo energy is about mastering discernment, efficiency, and attention to detail. She enjoys working on challenges that require precise thinking such as herbalism, crafting, technology and accounting.

While Virgo’s need to be helpful is endearing. She can sometimes get “stuck in the trees” without being able to “see the forest”. When this happens she can become petty, overly critical and fussy and may begin to pick on herself or others. Virgo is driven by the quest to make things whole and the need to develop order through examining what is not working and by creating strategies for improvement. However, she needs to remember to relax and let go of impossible standards of perfection that can lead to workaholic patterns and burnout.

During the Virgo Moon it can be a good time to analyze your habits and daily routines. You may want to organize your home or workspace and reflect on how you can develop more nurturing routines and satisfying methods for approaching work and service.
