Saturn in Virgo coincided with Grain Brain, Wheat Belly and gluten awareness going mainstream. It’s apt as one Virgo symbol is grain or wheat. Yes, I live in an area populated by the Wankerati & so I know it’s easy to make fun of this, but I don’t care. Wheat sensitivity awareness has been picking up since Saturn in Virgo.
More cafes have gluten-free or at least wheat free offerings & more peeps I meet or read about (Tilda Swinton, most recently) – who are not coeliac – say they have stopped wheat as it bloats them/drugs them/makes them flatulent, etc. And that’s before you even get onto the scary wheat shite. The DAY Saturn went into Virgo, a woman showed me a photo of a baguette lovers intestines that looked like triffids had taken over.
Anyway, Virgo is symbolically wheat & ye olde fashioned pics of the sign oft depict the maiden with the wheat sheaves to show wholesomeness & purity. Virgo is also about digestion – sometimes it seems as if half of our official food is indigestible. And Saturn in Virgo seems to have raised awareness of the whole food thing to a whole new level. Even just a few years ago, people laughed at those with intolerances or preferences. Now it’s way more normalized, except perhaps amongst the hardcore gourmet set.
Are you a high-qi & delicately calibrated macrobiotic type, for the most part? Or do you cheerfully eat a baguette for brek with whatever the hell you want on it?
