“The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non essentials.”

-Lin Yutang

It’s amazing how much “stuff” is out there.

Just by logging on to any computer, or checking our e-mail we can open up the floodgates and it can be quite overwhelming. Not to mention a headache. Most of us want information that we can use. Unfortunately, a lot of what we encounter is not of the practical variety.

One of Virgo’s most important life tasks is becoming adept at the art of discrimination. Mastering the ability to analyze information, or enter into any situation and become an efficiency expert. Separating what’s truly important and useful from that which is fluff.  Identifying “the real McCoy” and minimizing  exposure to the world of trivia. Virgo’s have a tremendous capacity to improve whatever they come into contact with. By employing their powers of razor sharp critical thinking, they can show us all how to be better in all of our pursuits.

When sculptors produce their statues, they must first chip away at all of the marble that’s not needed. In time, they may create a masterpiece.

Virgo: Chip away at the trivial, unnecessary and non-essential. The personal sculpture you create will serve as your contribution to life.
