If you find your age on the chart above it will tell you what profection year you’re currently in. The sign of the house your focus should be on can tell you more, as can the traditional ruler of that sign.

Virgo is the sign of health, too. I’ve had a few lessons here honestly. Last July I lost a pregnancy in a very early stage due to an ovarian cyst. Thankfully I never dealt with anything serious this entire time. When I was originally diagnosed back in 2018 I changed my entire lifestyle.

I lost over 50 pounds. I got off all my medication. My chronic pain was much easier to deal with because I was no longer constantly inflamed via my food intake. I wish I could tell you I stuck with it 100% and never faltered, but that would be untrue and if I am anything it’s honest.
