Do you feel there are many things you need to accomplish, yet it seems like there’s no way to get started?
There’s a pressure to move forward, to change things, to accomplish something. Maybe something big. Do you feel it?
All that’s happening in the world may be putting you into a state of distraction, too. Some of you may even be to the point of despair.
It can be tempting to throw up your hands and fling your frustration into the ether. F**k it! I give up!
Whoa now- hold up a minute there, pardner.
The Wise Sign Oracle wants to give you a teeny, weeny, little bit of advice.
Last week, Sagittarius told us to remain optimistic and what that could do for ourselves and the world as a whole.
Being optimistic is a pretty wise way to go about one’s life, yet sometimes, it’s very hard to do, right? Particularly if you feel like you’re unable to do what you think you should be doing.
What part of yourself symbolized in your horoscope can you access to make the doing much easier?
This week The Wise Sign Oracle picks out wisdom from the sign of Virgo.
Wait a minute –
Before we get into the explanation…
What do YOU think the oracle is saying?
Apply what Virgo is saying to your own life, to right now, to what is happening in your life.
What was the first thought you had?
HINT – That first thought is what the oracle means to you, personally. That first thought is where your intuition lies. This is how to read an oracle.
Virgo says, Tiny can be HUGE. Did you hear that? Tiny can be HUGE. I’ll repeat it because Virgo can at times be somewhat of a nag.
Tiny can be HUGE!
So, here’s the deal. Start small. Start, well, tiny. Even teeny-weeny, itty-bitty tiny. But start! How do ants make a huge anthill? By moving one grain of sand at a time.
Be the ant.
Got some chore or task, some project you want to do, but can’t get yourself cranking on it? Start with doing one, simple thing towards it.
Tell yourself you’ll do this one thing for five minutes. Five minutes! You definitely have five minutes to spare.
And once you do those five minutes, you may find that in an eye blink, half an hour has passed and the laundry is folded, the dishes are done, the toilet is miraculously cleaned!
Of course you can apply this method to more important projects too. Writing a book, for example, or planning a wedding, finding a job, redoing your room. Anything. The tiny task piled on each tiny task builds into something much bigger.
Persistence is key, as is focus.
The wisdom of the astrological sign of Virgo is that it knows to concentrate on the single tree, not the forest. For without the tree, there wouldn’t be a forest. Duh, right?
For that matter, why not concentrate on the seed? Without it, there’d be no tree. And if you want to go further, without the nourishment from each particle of dirt, the seed would have no place to grow.
You can see how tiny is very important. Essential, in fact.
Speaking of nourishment –
The Wise Sign Oracle of Virgo also is talking about the tiny things we get from our food. Vitamins, minerals, nutrients invisible to the eye. Are you getting enough of them?
Is your stress being aggravated by bad eating habits? Just checking.
Virgo pays attention to the details.
Details are important, but it’s easy to get lost and overwhelmed by them. Or extremely nit-picky about things. Or overly-critical – not only of oneself, but others, too.
Avoid criticizing in the effort to be of help.
This is Virgo’s form of perfectionism that destroys it’s efforts to build and renders efforts to be of service null by making others feel criticized and wrong.
This too, can turn into a huge thing! A huge, big, bad thing! So avoid doing it, OK?
Remember to breathe.
Put your nose down into your own work, but remember to look up and breathe as you pile those grains of sand, one after another, to build the foundation that will become the realization of your goals.
Pretty soon, not only will your tiny efforts become huge things, but they’ll banish despair and create hope while you do it.
