Perfection lays out the land of Virgo season. But it doesn’t have to be nit-picky, just well groomed and well looked after. I definitely feel the fall season hit as the nights are getting cooler and plans for more harvests are in the making. I love apple picking season, and even though the picking itself is short, there’s still something about it that stays with me, perhaps the pile of apples I then have to figure out what to do with afterwards. My favourite are Cortlands.
September is a great time for buckling down and working on your stuff, whatever it may be. And if you get flighty headed like me, with excitement for fall and all the air-like energy floating about, especially once we hit Libra season later this month (my sun sign is Libra in case you’re wondering), there are some methods to ground yourself. Try cooking a meal, especially for loved ones, there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing the progress of a project from start to finish and the finishing part being you get to eat it! well, dishes and clean up, but that is satisfying too when you do some team work with your mealtime partners. I cooked a meal for my mom and I the other night and got reminded how luvely it is to share mealtime together, so I am taking note to do more of this. Other grounding methods; reading, writing in a journal, physically touching the ground, dancing, and touching animals or other humans (upon permission of course! hugs are super lovely).
Anyhoo, onto the Goreblots!

If you chose 1. mummefied mouse…
Curled up and forgotten in some leather bag. You held on for a long time. Someone changed, you changed, a friend changed. Even if you stay in one position for so long, change happens inevitably, the decay takes over, dust settles into the crevices.
Your expectations became a habit, became the better of you. Feeling like you knew what to expect and continue to expect, until that change happened and your expectations started to crumble to the floor. It’s a little bit jarring. A role you once knew got taken away or denied and now it’s like you have to rehearse for a new part or continue to try and play the same old part. Try not to get yourself typecast though, I’m sure you are a bit tired of it yourself. For the sake of yourself and others, try to move on and move past what you expect of others in their roles. We get ourselves so restricted when we have to set ourselves around other people and our idea of what they need and what they are sensitive to.
A loop of tip toeing around sensitivities, yes it is nice to be considerate of others for sure, but you’re not being ultra altruistic by avoiding things you need to say or do in order to make someone else feel comfortable. And then it’s shocking to you when their mindset and actions change and you realize all along you really didn’t need to be doing any tip toeing, or being a certain way around them. Life is too short, let your guard down that you have up for others, they don’t need it and it certainly isn’t doing anyone any favours.
A song for you:
If you chose 2. the Gin Pills…
What do you do under influence? What takes your wind and sets your sails and pulls or pushes you in a direction, so fast and furious? All thanks to caffeine high, sugar high, alcohol buzz etc. What choices do you make that you might not otherwise if you were less or not at all influenced by substance?
Your impulsivity gives you a high that you can ride for a time, but then you’ll find it comes landing or crashing, depending, at a certain point. So make and take extra caution when throwing yourself to the wind, the choices you make are still your own and you cannot blame it on substance as you’re the one that still had the hand and gumption in consuming it.
Impaired judgment is kind of subjective, unless otherwise unlawful and unkind to another person. You really are still aware of what’s happening, just rather quite lazy in response to your inner ethics and morals, your judgment is quite sharp when you intentionally take that impulsive swig of whatever concoction it is that passes your lips. And you know and understand the outcome, you’ve been there before. Seems like you continue to soar over your options still, choosing to be as blind as a bird attempting to fly to that otherworld reflected in that window glass. Unfortunately, that illusionary world will have you smacking yourself with immediate regret and pain. You do have better eyes and a better brain than a bird. Think twice, otherwise be a bird brain, it’s your choice.
Here’s a little diddy for you:
And if you chose 3. Cannon…
Bam. Stretching yourself thin you are reaching for ways to ground your profession, your path, your passion. Explosions of energy pass through you but still seems like you’re not quite hitting your target.
Do you aim your weapon before firing it? or do you ruthlessly fire all over the place hoping that eventually that ball will land in a spot where might be considered a target? Consider for a moment, your intentions. It doesn’t hurt to take a few extra moments to be meticulous about where you want to land, you don’t have to be rife with perfection either, but knowing where you want to land and perhaps an idea of how you’ll get there will be a tremendous help to you.
Take Young Frankenstein for thought, he wanted to succeed so badly, yet he overlooked some major details in his process, he seemed to skip ahead to the fun part, not realizing his monster human got an abnormal brain instead of the one he intended. Please don’t end up with an abnormal brain!
But seriously, he really did have somewhat good intentions didn’t he? or at least this insane idea that he’d recreate life as we know it. All I’m saying is, be careful what you aim for, you may just get exactly what you intended in the first place, in a sense, however overlooking some details will have you winding up in a bit of a mess where you will be taking some time to untangle yourself from. Know that you can hit your target if you just take a bit of extra time and focus on your intentions and how you want to feel getting there. Exploding all over the place may be fun, but then there will be quite a few pieces to pick up and clean up. Just something to keep in mind.
Here’s a song for that driven energy!:
As always, the Doc is here if you need.
Love and Guts,
