Virgo Season 2021: What To Expect From The Focus Oriented Energy Shift

Every Year from August 22 to September 22, the sun makes its trip through the sixth sign of the zodiac, and we enter Virgo season. The sign is known for being a practical, and communicative mutable earth sign. It moves the energy into a time of organization, productivity and self-improvement.

The time during the Maiden's seasons brings an intense energy shift from Leo's fun, luxurious and romantic energy. The back-to-school energy means that the summer is winding down, and it's time to get to business.

Virgo's pragmatic energy is optimal for getting organized and reviving routines to reach utmost productivity. This makes it easier to focus on the work that actually needs to get done. This is the perfect time to accomplish the tasks that have been on the back burner during Leo's party summer vibes.

It's a time to work towards goals and self-care routines that will manifest action. The sign is also associated with wellness, which means that any health or self-improvement elated goals will be easier to transition into as well.

Ruled By Planet Mercury

Virgo season prepares for the upcoming Mercury retrograde in Libra. However as Virgo season 2021 is ruled by messenger planet Mercury, the planet of communication, this Virgo season may bring on longings to others, and even exes. Be careful in differentiating which relationships to feed, and which are just coming from a place of comfort.

The weighted mental energy will ignite a desire and ability to connect with others through more efficient and fruitful manners. This need to connect can also bring on opportunities and expand our networks, especially as we emerge from a time when we were bound to our homes.

Peak On The New Moon

The Virgo energy will peak during the characterized lively energy of the September 6 new moon. That'll be the prime moment of the season to plant seeds for future opportunities and manifest some practical magic in your life.

Keep in mind that the first full moon technically falls in Leo season, but since it happens on the morning of the day that the sun shifts into Virgo, it carries over some of its characteristics. At 29 degrees of the innovative Aquarius, combined with the powerful energy of lucky Jupiter, this full moon will carry a mixture of luck and innovation, making the best time to put new plans into action.

September 20 will mark the second full moon of the season, this time marked by Pisces. This time will push us into a spiritual awakening by intensifying dreams, and diverting from Virgo's pragmatic perspective for a moment.

This will be an opportunity to combine logic with creativity, and action with dreams. It'll be a good time to take risks that may seem illogical at first or to embark on fantasies that may have once seemed out of reach. As the sun will be close to Mars, its confident energy will facilitate these bold moves.

Relationships And Money Will Feel More Intense

During Virgo seasons, planet Venus will be moving from its home in Libra where it was at the height of its power, to Scorpio, where it will experience more of a struggle.

This means that relationships, especially ones with love and money won't come as easily. There will be more of a push to step outside the box and to look at the deeper and darker side of these relationships. This time of evulation and transformation will put even strong bonds to the test and make relationships feel more serious.

Time For Action And Transformation

From September 14 to October 30, action-oriented Mars will be in the cardinal air sign Capricon. This time will amplify the ability to remove barriers, including people that no longer serve you in place for new and more fulfilling power moves.

Just like with any new beginning of an earth sign's season, feeling grounded and balanced when aligned with the earth's energy will make it easier to initiate and follow through on action. This brings us closer to our truest selves through a transformation that aligns us with our purpose.


The Four Facial Traits That Make The Most Attractive People

Researchers keep on trying to unlock the million-dollar question: what makes a person the most beautiful? The media keeps on changing the women they show as most beautiful and we keep on changing our appearance and fashion in an attempt to keep up. But the question is, do we actually ever actually "feel" beautiful?"

Does it truly come down to a science, where certain traits deem a person most attractive or is beauty relative like they say? Let's find out!

The More Symmetry The Better

​Many experimental studies have shown that men and women both prefer faces that are more symmetrical. They even came up with ratios and masks that can measure the level of symmetry in a face, and by extension its beauty. Even monkeys have been noticed gazing longer at symmetrical faces.

But why? Well, science doesn't seem to have gotten that far. It could have something to do with evolution and our brains tricking themselves into thinking that a symmetrical face must be a sign of good health. Maybe we associate good genes with the more successful development of a facial structure.

Having "Babyface" Features

​The idea of the fountain of youth didn't come out of anywhere. There is a belief that people are at their most beautiful in the prime of their youth, where they've grown enough to have adult features, but haven't experienced enough to lose their innocence and be affected by the environment.

From this idea, came the "baby face", where large eyes, long lashes, a cute little nose, a small chin, plump lips, and rosy cheeks are desirable. These traits can either describe a baby or a supermodel but the idea is that they reflect feelings of warmth, trust and won't argue back.

The More Average, The More Relatable

People are actually attracted to faces that appear distinctly average. Yes, the more you look like the general population, the more attractive you can come off, which just seems ironic.

The reason some studies made this conclusion, is that teh more average a face is, the more they likely are to be a blend of genes A study, published in the journal Human Nature said that average faces might be a reflection of a more diverse set of genes, which we might subconsciously consider as stronger in fighting off illnesses.

Something About Getting Older

Maybe women seem more attractive with baby faces but forget about youth when it comes to women's attraction to men. Women might actually end up being more attracted to men who look older according to a study.

This idea is still evolving and has something to do with women finally having a place in the workforce. The more financially independent they become, the more they like older guys, according to the study. They even named this the "George Clooney Effect" which showed women that the more patient they are, the better their chances at finding a man has more status and resources due to being older.

Familiar Faces Per Genetics

Ask yourself how you feel when you meet someone who looks like someone else you love? You probably automatically take a liking to them just because they seem familiar, even if you've truly never met them before. You might even just trust them right away. In the same way, the more familiar a person might feel, the more we could be attracted to them.

Another study found that the faces we are attracted to are heavily influenced by our personal experiences in life, and probably nothing more. This theory says it's not because of genetics as even twins couldn't agree on who they found attractive. It just depends on who you meet and look at throughout your life and the experiences you associate with them.

Basically You Can't Win

Well, it turns out, even when you try to with science, you really can't define beauty. Some people are attracted to babyfaces, while some can't help but be drawn to older ones. Some people's brains attach symmetry with good health while others just want an average-looking face to continue their genes. So the message is, beauty is relative after all. I am beautiful and you are beautiful and everyone will be most attractive to someone.

Rather than focus on looks, focus on the person on the inside. You're here for a reason. This is your sign to get to know yourself better and unleash your potential.
