So far as trends go, this one might be difficult to coin an actual name for. Not-The-Typical-Virgo is calling it “holy c**t consciousness” which does not exactly make for a friendly media soundbite. But the V – as in vagina – seems to be more prevalent in everyday culture of late and i don’t know what astrology is to thank.
It came to my attention last March (Lilith went into Leo and the North Node into Leo, we were all intent on Saturn in Scorpio/the Grand Cardinal Zap Cross of Feb to April) with the Feng Shui Your Vagina post. Summary: Sage and Mugwort are super magical protective, clearing and banishing herbs so why not waft some, you know, up there? A conscious honoring and cleansing of one’s Venusian sectors.
Then The Gwyneth (Pluto, Sun, Mercury, Uranus and Lilith conjunct in Libra) entered the fray with her endorsement of the V-Steam – mugwort but not smudged, just diffused up into the Venusian zone. It’s an ancient Korean practice said to have all manner of benefits, despite the sound thrashing she got in the media and from medical experts. Important Note: Obviously i am not a gynecologist lol. If you have any V crap going down, see a doctor.
Anyway, i think it’s time The Gwyneth actually opened a chain of avant-garde futuristic spas across the globe – it would be epic. Mugwort, btw, is Artemesia, herb of Artemis, super-magic. Then in December, squabbling broke out on the post about the Secret Ceres (also apparently ancient wimmyn wisdom updated) clay-herbal stick thingy for V rejuvenation.
AND now – the Chakrubs – crystal dildos (yes) in Rose Quartz, Adventurine, Jade and with a whole host of apparent benefits so that ladies, you can balance your chakras at the same time as you’re doing other things. This brings a fresh vibe to the old phrase “getting your rocks off” and it is most likely also the ultimate in multi-tasking.
