New Moon in Libra - Balancing Challenge and Opportunity

This Saturday, Sept. 28th, we will experience a new Supermoon in Libra.  A Supermoon means that the moon is closer to the earth and so we feel its energy more profoundly. There are many conversations happening between the planets at the time of this new moon - some challenging, some offering us support and opportunity.  Our task is to work with it all and establish a new order and sense of balance.

Some key phrases to keep in mind when aligning with this new moon are:  new beginnings, starting over, establishing balance, harmony, mediation, justice, relationships, socializing, diplomacy, getting off the fence, level-headed thinking and dialogue with the intention of bringing things back into balance.  If things are very out of balance in our lives and/or in the world, we need to shake them up, disrupt the status quo in order to re-establish balance.

Saturn Direct - Lessons Learned and the Road Ahead

The big news this week is Saturn turning Direct at 13 degrees Capricorn.  While retrograde, the energy of Saturn was directed inward.  We may have been reflecting on our sense of authority and self-agency.  Whatever house Saturn sits for us is the area he is asking us to learn some lessons in.  With this direct motion, we can begin to see how far we've come, and the work that is left to be done in this area of our life.

Saturn is known as The Lord of Karma - the one who keeps track of our actions and deeds and says when it's time to reap the rewards of our hard work, or pay the piper if we've been neglecting our responsibilities.
We also have the Equinox occurring on Monday the 23rd when the Sun crosses into Libra.

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.

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.

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.
