The new moon today, Tuesday , September 19th , 2017 occurs at 10:30pm PT on 27 degrees 27 ‘ of earthy, practical, and loyal Virgo. It will be exact at 1:30am on the East Coast of the United States .The Sabian Symbol for this degree is : A GROUP OF ARISTOCRATIC LADIES MEET CEREMONIALLY AT A COURT’S FUNCTION. This degree confers ability to meet and to sustain time honored , revered , personal, or Transpersonal obligations in order to carry on tradition …..or to preserve culture, norms and values. This denotes a desire for perfectionism in our jobs, our standards and our duties to self and/ or society.
Today no less than 5 Planets will be in Virgo at the time of Tonight’s New Moon! The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus( at 6:15pm PT) and Mars all busy themselves with Virgoan energies. The sign of the Virgin confers adaptability, practicality, with a love of freedom . Virgo is usually non possessive, communicative, meticulous, analytical, discriminating, modest, and orderly. Don’t forget that they are excellent lovers! Loyal and hardworking, they will assimilate, pay attention to details, and organize their and their loved one’s lives… Assets to any organization, these natives can spot the weak link in any chain while saving the day and not looking for accolades . Humility is a wonderful Virgo trait. Do beware of Virgoan Pitfalls: Worry, being overly fastidious, criticism, carping, sloth due to low self esteem, judgmentalism, too vanilla, and fear of loss of control. The Highest Order of this wonderful Healing Nature is Metaphysical rather than Physical. Messenger of the gods Mercury ruled Virgo is the practical Bridge to the Metaphysical or Spiritual Realms. With so much mutable Earth energy abounding we can FINALLY get some things on track, moving forward, and towards completion!!!
Back to the New Moon. Mercury leaves its shadow zone( the point at which it first turned Retrograde on August 12th after it started ” slowing down “on July 28th. . Mercury at 11°38 ‘ of Virgo brings the possibility that not all problems we experienced during the deleterious Rx last month , over finance/ romance, reversal of fortunes, mistrust , lies, and betrayal have been solved. If you still have concern , a little paranoia or doubts ….these can be exacerbated as Mercury and Mars are still together in Critical Virgo. Mercury is also back on negative and depressing fixed star Zosma . Mercury in Virgo opposite Neptune Rx in Watery and emotional Pisces has been reliving, and rehashing painful memories and heartaches caused by lies, deceit ,disloyalty, and perception of loss or abandonment …touched by August 21st Eclipse degrees …with a Vengeance. Not in over 20 years have we seen or felt some of theses melancholy and malefic energies.
Keywords are Change Leading to Stability. Remember the theme that began with the total solar eclipse on August 21. Now today it will feel more like minor glitches or a simple need for adjustments , rather than being blindsided or having the rug pulled out from under you. Remember VIRGO PROMOTES HEALING. We can begin to see the real possibility of actualizing long term goals and plans. It will become much easier to see how to get to where you want to go…. or more importantly…Why ?
One of dreadful factors of the run up to this New Moon were the unmistakable reminders and memories of the most painful wounds you may have suffered in this Lifetime…or in Others . Wounded Healer asteroid Chiron has been close to Neptune also in Pisces stirring up the Well of Sorrows. Mercifully we are ready after Uncovering, Discovering…and Hopefully Discarding to move in a New Direction, onto a more Stable and Streamlined Path. Virgo likes to clean out the closets, the gutters, the cobwebs of our lives. Please use the energies of this New Moon to move forward . By focusing on getting into positive action rather than drowning in negative thinking…we are able to grow and to adapt to unexpected change in plans, or to make practical revisions in the working patterns of our Lives. NO FEAR. We see with a renewed clarity that our longer term hopes , wishes and dreams are practical and can be made Real.
