“Viva la Virgo Season!” says the Leo Rising who has been — obnoxiously — up her own ass for the last year.
Virgo Season puts the Sun in my Second House of finances, livelihood, and possessions, where I also have Venus and Mars. Venus rules my Third House (where I’ve focused most of my attention this year) and I went hard on the Venusian. See my style experiments and curating online spaces.
With Mars ruling the year ahead, it’s time to shake shit up and get shit done.
My next birthday (in October) kicks off a challenging year that brings home, family, work, routines and health to the forefront. So, I’m using the next few weeks as practice run for getting my shit together in three key areas.
My spending spree began in 2020. I was Maid of Honor in my best friend’s wedding and opened a checking account for wedding expenses. The problem: this account was linked to my savings. And those harmless little transfers…
Well. They added up.
My first orders of Virgo season: closing said checking account, rebuilding my savings, and curbing my wild ass spending.
Luckily, September is a three-paycheck month and, because I’ve been a very good girl with bills this summer, I don’t have to pay my car note again until late October. Re-examining my expenses for the month, I found $1,000 for my savings account.
Score one for ya girl.
Earlier this year, a private equity firm purchased my apartment complex and from the looks of things?
It’s giving slumlords looking to run out their tenants and renovate for coming gentrifiers.
I love my apartment. The direct sunlight. The hardwood floors. The gorgeous, walkable neighborhood. The less than $700/month rent.
Do I want to leave? No. Should I prepare for the possibility? Unfortunately.
Insert heavy sigh.
The executive/assistant relationship is very much a marriage.
Let’s just say mine is experiencing the dreaded Seven Year Itch.
I could stand to communicate better and be more engaged. As a strict separator of church and state, that’s all I’ll say about the 9-5.
There are other areas for improvement over the next year. My relationship with my mother, stepping up my fitness routine, more cooking and eating at home. I’ll address those as I settle into the year.
Bring on the schedules and to-do lists, loser. We’re going full Virgo.
