Virgo in Magic
When the moon is in Virgo, it is a good time to perform spells and other magical work to affect employment.
Virgo lends helpful energy to spells (and indeed mundane activities) devoted to building firm foundations, including planning and organizational activities, financial planning – indeed all minutiae that can make the difference between success and failure that needs to be attended to before a project can even get off the ground.
Virgo energy also supports the building of networks, communication, editing and proofreading, paperwork that must be done correctly (tax returns?) or requires a lot of research (proposals) and supporting documents (mortgage applications).
Of course, if you’ve forgotten to pay attention to the details and things have gone awry, Virgo can help you nudge things back into line.
It is also a good time to perform healing magic related to the spine, nervous system, abdomen, and intestines.
