Elul is associated with the Zodiac Sign of Virgo. Virgo is the Mutable
Earth (Transformative Manifestation) Sign, whose function is that of
sifting, separating and purifying.
On Shabbat there is a form of
"work" called "borer" which we are forbidden to do. "Borer" is about
separating the useful from the not-useful. This is Virgo's function and
it is Elul's specialty. All month we do "borer" to our own soul -
sifting, separating that which is useful
from that which no longer serves, analyzing ourselves under the
microscope of our own truth, confronting and owning our part in whatever
it is that is holding us back from fully engaging with our spiritual
Wishing everybody a good "housecleaning". Don't be too harsh
or hard on yourself, and don't let judgmental, punishing perfectionism
fool you into thinking that you're really bad. Remember Elul is an
acronym for "Anee l'Dodi v'Dodi Li" - "I am my beloved's and my beloved
is mine". What is beloved is already perfect. Love is perfect. You are
perfect. Elul is the perfect time to become deeply connected with that
