Virgo New Moon: Solitude and the Contented Heart

Posted by & filed under Eclipses, Lunar Phases, New Moon, Virgo.

Oh, self- righteousness can feel so good. Setting someone straight. Telling it like it is. Few things offer the delicious jolt of freedom, of agency, of utter indifference to consequence that comes with letting fly a self-righteous screed. But even if what you say is true, and even if you can argue for its necessity, that kind of truth-telling is never kind and almost never improves upon the silence….
