Virgo has arrived and so has our North American academic season. I don't know about you, but I already feel the need to ground and collect and the semester has not officially begun for me.
This season I have the honor of returning to CIIS and will be joining Lesley University as well. Being an adjunct faculty member of 2 extraordinary Expressive Arts Therapy departments is a joy and privilege. One I do not take lightly. One that I feel my Ancestors shining down with pride about. Even with perspective and support, as I get into detail mode I begin to feel the strain of what does not come naturally to me. I look to my traditions for guidance and remember the gifts of the season.
This season is a transitional one as we move from the height of Summer into Autumn...One that is full of abundance, as well as danger like wildfires, the pandemic, racial injustice, and all this on the heels of an election that will determine so much of our stability and sense of wellness. My wish for this Virgo season is for all beings to find the grounding energy needed to stay well. Stay organized, stay humble, stay safe.
