6. Moon in Virgo – Small Intestine Function Energy

Order, Cleanliness, and Attention to Detail

All work and no play is no fun. But all Leo fun and no time to tidy up quickly gets messy. The Moon just entered Virgo/Small Intestine, the energy that gives us the focus to tidy up and clean up all we didn’t feel like before. Virgo is very methodical and meticulous in its attention to detail. Overdone, it quickly takes us into the impossible corners of perfectionism and pedanticism.

The gift of a harmonized Virgo energy is the ability to discern – to know when something is good enough. For the next two and a half days, we’ll be harmonizing the Small Intestine Function Energy.

Here is how to do it:

Left Side

Place your Left hand on your left shoulder at Left SEL 11, and the Right hand in the right upper chest area at Right SEL 13.

Right Side

Place your Right hand on your right shoulder at Right SEL 11, and the Left hand in the left upper chest area at Left SEL 13.

How It Helps

Small Intestine Function Energy helps us recover from winter labels – colds, flu, sore throats, etc. When in harmony, it gives us the gift of discernment – to know what to do and what not to do. How good is good enough. And that is more powerful than any of its physical help that it may bestow. For, when we have discernment, we are less likely to do things that are harmful to us.

As you sit and harmonize Small Intestine Function Energy, fill yourself with gratitude – for everyone and everything around us that help, serve, and support us.
