This New Moon takes place on 17 September 2020 at 7:00 Am EST at 25 degrees Virgo. Virgo is a mutable earth sign ruled by Mercury.
Virgo is in charge of work, health, daily routine and service. Virgo is fun-loving and is so good at time management, it knows how to make time for fun. Virgo knows that work is service and work is live in action – regardless of the task, it can be attended to with reverence. A Virgo new Moon is a good time for an attitude check/adjustment on our lives, how we spend our time, and how we feel about how we are spending/giving our time. It’s a good time to look at the direction of our thoughts since our actions will often follow those thoughts.😊 Mercury is currently in Libra, so making peace with our thoughts and living the words that are flowing through our minds and out of our mouths is especially beneficial.
Jupiter in Capricorn has now gone direct and some feelings of expansion and optimism are being expressed, coming out of the subconscious into the light. It’s a good time to expand and act on ideas that may have been back burnered since springtime. Jupiter is still traveling through Capricorn along with retrograde Saturn and Pluto.
The New Moon makes an Earth trine to all three of them.
So we can dig deep to expand on our expression of personal power and authority. We can expand and fill up the space on our lives that has been made by isolation, less in person socializing, and a decrease in general restless errands and running around.
The three Capricorn planets also square retrograde Mars in Aries. The structure of everything we know is up for review – nature, government, our personal authority, work, daily life, family operations. Everything.
Mars in Aries wants to get on with it. Retrograde Mars in Aries needs to find a way to befriend its inner fire and instinctual life force. It needs to physically balance that inner fire with the whole physical system. It needs to be the strong composed warrior who is preparing for future engagement. That warrior is strengthening and calming disciplining its mind. It is tending to the strength and feeding of its body. It is honing it’s intellectual skills of reasoning, problem solving and decisiveness.
The warrior at rest is honing it’s skills. It is keeping its uniform in good condition. It is tending to the tools of its particular trade and sharpening its skills. This is a good use of Mars retrograde energy.
The warrior’s pack is filled with food that will last a while and with clothing and coverings suitable to the season.
This list is a metaphor for being skillful, and for being prepared. Virgos are skillful, practical, adaptable, and prepared. It is also a recommendation to have a bag in the car and in a closet by the door to grab and go should the need arise.
The warrior is working on knowing how to marshal and process it’s emotions.
The warrior has made peace with itself and it’s Maker, understanding better than most that no one gets out of this Earth experience alive. When one has made peace with oneself and ones Maker, however that Maker is perceived, one is free to live in freedom, strength and confidence.
The warrior at camp is also tending to the development and nurture of relations with community members and companions. It is learning to quiet the mind so that it can be ready to act, to serve, when the time is right.
The Capricorn energy of Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter is a lot about timing.
Mars retrograde needs to learn the very important lesson of cooling ones own jets so that energy is available at the right time.
Jupiter squares Virgo’s ruler, Mercury, now in Libra at the New Moon. This can give rise to some new ideas. It can also illuminate understanding of ourselves through our ways of relating with others. The Jupiter/Mercury square can also help us to refine our daily routines so that they work better for us.
Virgo is a mutable sign. It is constantly finding ways to adapt to changes of all kinds. Virgo has the ability to see the new and different patterns in all aspects of life as things shift and evolve. Virgo can pivot in 3D and in real time. So with a clear head and an eye for the most efficient and health-filled way forward, we proceed with our dreams hopes wishes desires and our daily routines.
Much love to you all.
