What have you mastered in your life?
Potential ~ the “inherent capacity for growth and development.” Potential implies that we are not yet what we might become. Our charts hint at our potential, giving clues through planet placements, but it’s up to us to master that potential.
For Virgo, mastery can seem unobtainable.
Will my work ever be good enough?
Will I ever be good enough?
There can be a lot of self-doubt and feelings of inadequacy.
Put yourself in the shoes of the fellow in the 8 of Pentacles, the tarot card for the first decan of Virgo. Is he the master or the apprentice?
Each time we do something to increase our proficiency, our skills are refined and we come a little bit closer to fulfilling our potential:
- In the business world through the quality of our products or services
- In our knowledge and skills through courses or hands-on training
- In areas of health by learning the effects of food and exercise on our bodies
Our apprenticeship may never end because we always face new challenges. But by slowly and steadily plugging away in that focused, meticulous Virgo way, we get a little closer to more perfected, masterful results. And as every Virgo knows, there’s always room to improve.
