Practical Magic for Soul Liberation

Witchy Wednesday - Astrology for Sept 11-17, 2019

Full Moon in Pisces - Integration

The full moon in at 21 degrees Pisces is happening on September 13th or 14th depending on your time zone.  Either way, this Full Moon is ultimately about integrating the spiritual and human sides of ourselves, as well as the lessons and wisdom gained this Virgo Season. 
The sun conjunct Mars and opposite the moon is lending us the ability to take action on our inspiration and in order to heal ourselves back to wholeness. 

Pluto in close, positive conversation with the new moon is supporting our transformation and guiding us to harness our authentic power to move through difficult emotions and situations.

Mutable Earth - Hold the Vision, Do the Work, Adjust Accordingly

The focus is still on the Mutable Earth energy of Virgo this week, but this is in relation to the broader picture and the bigger story playing out.  All the planets in Virgo (Venus, Mars, Mercury and the Sun) will take their turns having some important conversations over this time.  They will all trine Saturn, the South Node and Pluto in Capricorn.  They will also oppose Neptune in Pisces.  AND, they will all square Jupiter in Sagittarius.

This square to Jupiter is like a check point asking us to evaluate what Jupiter has been growing, expanding, or teaching us during his journey through his home sign.  Jupiter will move on to Capricorn in early December 2019.  This is an opportunity to contemplate how far we've come and perhaps where we need to adjustment in order to carry out our vision in the most meaningful way.  The earthy energy of Virgo can help us do the work.

The Sun God, The Rising of Sirius and Jupiter Direct - Gifted

This week is full of abundance, manifestation, gratitude, forward momentum, and harvest.  It's the time of year that the Ancient Egyptians considered their New Year.  The peak of the Sun's power and the opening of the Lion's Gate Portal when Dog Star Sirius, the brightest star in the sky rises and gifts us. The Celts celebrate Lammas or the festival of Lugh (The Sun God) at this time of year as well. 

And if that weren't enough, we have Jupiter, the planet of abundance, growth, expansion, meaning, and wisdom also gifting us as he is finally stationing direct this week. 
Shine On, Brave Souls!  Shine On!

New Moon in Virgo - Ritual, Sacred Service & The Rhythms of Nature

Friday, August 30th brings the New Moon in Virgo.
At this time, we will have a pile up of energy in Virgo, including the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars.
With 9 planets in earth signs and 7 planets in the mutable signs - this is definitely all about the Mutable Earth energy of Virgo.
A trine to Uranus in Taurus can bring us something unexpected but ultimately helpful if we choose to harness the energy. At it’s best, Virgo is the priestess or priest – (not in a religious sense) – here to do sacred work and be of service to the world.  The archetype of the medicine woman, the wise one, the witch who knows how to use the magic of the earth.

Virgo is ultimately about working with nature, and the knowing that everything is perfect just as it is – the key is to work with it, rather than against it. Virgo Season is a time to cleanse, purify, harvest, start new routines, bring more efficiency into your existing routines, evaluate your health, consider what your sacred work is, bring ritual and ceremony into your life, connect intimately with the rhythms of nature and use those to your advantage rather than working against them.  It is a time of doing the practical work to improve your life and the lives of those around you.

Ceres Direct and Pallas Square Nodes - Courage over Comfort

Two of the asteroid goddesses are pulling focus this week.  Asteroid Ceres is stationing direct in Sagittarius and Pallas Athene is Squaring the Nodes of the moon.  While Ceres is bringing some forward motion in where and how we may have been feeling less than nurtured in our lives, or where we've been processing grief and loss, Pallas is calling our attention to where we are being encouraged to choose courage over comfort in our lives.

We also have Mercury Retrograding back into Cancer, Venus conjunct the North Node and opposite Saturn, and in trine to Neptune.  In addition, the Sun moves home to Leo where it can shine to its full potential.  Happy Birthday, Leos!!
