Being a new moon it’s the start of something new, plus you’re coming out of eclipses. Where are you now? what shifts and changes have finely fallen into place, since May.

In Virgo you want to clear out, tidy up and stick with working at the details/facts, this is for improvement, upgrade, to make something better.
Since Pluto is involved it may come with some intensity or deep focus.
Jupiter wants to expand or you may find that you’re looking through a magnifying glass to get to the details, you want to see clearly or perhaps you just want it to be as near perfect as you can get.

Pluto and Jupiter are supporting this New Moon for transformation and growth, so….
You want to start out right.
Don’t take shortcuts.

Neptune can make it all a little fuzzy or blurred, you may find that you lose the thread or focus, you just can’t seem to get it right or it doesn’t feel quite right, so take the time. But stay the course, especially if it’s something that is really worth your while.

Neptune can often mean an ending or releasing of something, allow the Virgo energy to help you sort out what this is, Virgo is asking for you to improve your life. Take the time to contemplate what that is. It’s sifting and sorting now that leads you further down the path to a better place. But, it’s best done in Virgo’s way, the details and work.

It’s a New Moon in Virgo, have patience, be discerning with what you are doing. Tend to and take the care that is needed.

Full moon in Aries kicks you off to a new start, Mars/Venus conjunct also bring in a the flavour of new beginnings, Jupiter’s about to leave behind Libra and is super ready to dive into Scorpio.

But…..hang on a minute! Saturn, is creating and asking of you to have a slower approach to this new start. Venus and then Mars in Virgo are going to meet up with Saturn in square, brings in some tension. Saturn likes to restricts, puts on the brakes, wants you to think about what you are doing or about to do. Take some control and self-discipline here. Virgo energy also is making sure you are real, working with the facts, and to also ground this in reality. This is about building something worthwhile or long term. The rewards will be worth it in the end with Saturn, But it’s never easy to slow down, especially when you are burning up for the new.

Sun and Mercury conjunct, lurking in the background, so your head and mind is a buzz. Intense thought, communication, insights. Still excitement is within you.
Great time for connecting and chatting, writing, meetings, particularly in relationship and partnership.

Keep in mind if these thoughts of “not good enough”, fear, doubt, not being perfect, come floating up, which they can do with Virgo and Saturn around, face them, tell them to back off or better still F**k Off! and know you can do this!

Moon being in Taurus may help to ground down all of the fire energy of the Full Moon.

 

New Moon in Virgo, 20th Sept, 2017!

New Moon in Virgo, 20th @3:30 pm (aest)

  • Sun/Moon opposite Chiron, square to Saturn. Mercury ruler of Virgo, conjunct Mars, opposite Neptune.

This is a very Virgo time, Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars and Venus(enters a few hours before the new moon) all in the mutable, earth sign of Virgo.

It’s time to find the thread again, that was lost.

Here you are dealing with life, looking at life through the eyes of a Virgo lens. And you may be struggling with what you see. It might even be a little bit messy, confusing. The Neptune Full Moon, slipped things into the ethers, a lot dissolved, detached, left you with a lost feeling, something left from within you making you feel not so sure now. Neptune might want to keep the chaos alive, keep it stuffed in the cupboards, under the bed, but no, that is not the Virgo way. To sort is the way, come back to earth, to pick up the pieces. Virgo works her magic to help you get clarity, to get clear, by taking the practical, approach. It’s time to get in amongst the mess whether it be in your head, house, relationships, health, daily habits, work, kitchen cupboards. Time to work, look, get organized, make a list, get a plan, and do.

Virgo is here to help you out, she is asking you to clean it all up, she will be logical, practical and very discerning. What to keep and what to throw. What is working or useful to me and most of all to others, as Virgo is about service too. You can only work with what you know, what is true and real and what you have, keep that in mind. Somethings will have to go but not everything.
You would like to make life, work better. You feel the need to clean, remove, sort out the muddle that’s been around you or in your head.

Virgo time is a good time for healing, head, body and soul, take some time out for this.

New Moon hits up with Saturn/Chiron, which brings in another set of challenges for you. Chiron is the sensitive spot, vulnerable, you feel like parts or bits are missing, still floating out there in space, (I think Neptune has taken it out to sea), you may feel like you are not enough, not whole. Saturn sets you to working it out, because you have to, you just have to do the work!, you cannot walk away, from bits yes, but not the lot. That would be unfinished business. Saturn…. not a fan of that!

Mercury ruler of Virgo, opposite Neptune, this brings in the fog, uncertain, element, you’re just not sure of what is really going on here, you stand scratching your head, so communication may be unclear, misunderstanding can happen. Let the universe speak to you, listen. At some point be quiet and listen. Let her pulse through you. Virgo and Pisces is the axis of dream, magic and reality bringing it into physical form. Mars is still conjunct Mercury, taking action may not be clear or easy, bit to fogging perhaps, thanks to Neptune opposite.

If you are feeling like me at the moment and you just do not know what to do, about certain things, just wait, hold off, clean up the bits that you know need to be looked at, sort, sift, release. You will start to feel the new energy of the new moon filter through a few days after, that’s the go point, you are using this Virgo time to get clear, really clear on what you want and what you are doing, it’s been a hazy, daze time between moons, but hopefully you have been listening to the discerning voice within.

Astro bits, 14th Sept, 2017!

sun squ saturn

SUN square SATURN, the square creates friction and frustration, you can feel challenged by limits or restrictions placed upon you. Go with the limits as it may be helping you to pace yourself, to be really sure about what you want.
Saturn holds back for a reason, the Sun is your identity, you may not be able to shine as much, but that is OK for now.
Sometimes, well, most of the time really, Saturn shows you where the work needs to be done, with the Sun involved its to do with self-confidence and self-expression and your identity.
Saturn likes to test you, “growth through pressure”, and yes that’s want been happening, do you have faith in you, have you grown up, been responsible for your life and how you go about it, in all ways, all Saturn stuff, have you go the grit to grow? To find your truth and walk it.
Moon in Cancer, watch your emotions, your mood, this will add a touch more depth and intensity.
I guess be patient.

Well it’s an intense, twitchy kind a day, you can be feeling some stress and tension, maybe a bit of an overload, and you may feel tad irritated by it all.
*
MOON squares SUN, here you are weeding out what is no longer working for you, be discerning, make choices, leave what is working, polish up or on skills that you can take with you and work with. If it is no good throw it out, or recycle what you have. Not the time to start something new.
You may also be feeling the old is dying away and what is left?, what is the new something that is coming? Full moon in Pisces may have shifted something within you, a space is waiting to be filled, use the Virgo time to work, sift through what you got.  Look and think about what do you want, do you need it or not. Plus do you really want to be doing it all?
*
MOON opposite SATURN, that just adds to the mood, emotions may feel restricted/held back in some way or you just feel like you really can’t move on or get ahead, again some frustration.
Moon is in Gemini, so this is a buzzy kind of energy anyway, your mind is quick, you feel restless, but you feel pinned down with this other energy going on.
Be patient, focus on the job at hand. Use the buzz energy to clean things out, or work it off and out.
