Long weekend / Virgo season roundup

Hello! Welcome to September, you regal rubys! Virgo season is upon us, which is going down Aug 22 - Sept. 22. Virgo is all about order, systematizing things and increasing efficiency, so it calls on us to whip our adulting game into shape. That's what this roundup is all about - getting your shit together for the fall and winter.
