On the deepest level, Virgo teaches self-love and radical self-acceptance. Fiercely loving yourself will light the way that leads to the highest expression of your evolutionary path. Virgo energy drives us to employ self-discipline, develop quality skills, and put forth a considerable effort to polish ourselves and our offerings. With Virgo energy, there is a motivation toward critical thinking and perfectionism. However, constant critiquing and perfection is not the goal. It is more about reflecting on what is ideal versus the actual reality. Virgo desires to purify, refine, and perfect to create the ideal. The key is to avoid the setbacks of constant perfecting. Your heart knows when your work has met your standard of excellence. Embrace the joy of your creation and graciously release your project or service.
