Witchy Wednesday - Astrology for Aug 30 - Sept 3, 2019
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.
