The New Moon in Virgo marks the day just before the Equinox. We are preparing to transition over the horizon from the personal signs—Aries through Leo—to those in which we go out to meet and interact with the world—Libra through Aquarius.
Virgo and Pisces are dubbed “transitional archetypes” in Evolutionary Astrology. They are places of reflection, review, clearing and assimilation.
They give us a chance to look at where we have been and where we go next. This is on all levels.
Most of life is happening from the inside out. From the desire to the idea formed in response to the idea to the vibration that aligns with the idea.
Then the stuff actually may occur on the outer.
Virgo is well acquainted with the inside job.
Virgo analyzes and reforms—it transmutes. Virgo is busy working to transform a dirty room to a clean one. It transforms the idea of a fun day into the reality of a bunch of friends playing together.
Virgo is the healer of the zodiac. Virgo transforms that which is in an uncomfortable position to a position of alignment.
A physician doesn’t give treatment until they have assessed the patient by observation, by touch, and by, we hope, asking the patient where it hurts. THEN the bone is set, the treatment prescribed and explained. Healing begins. A really good doctor will ask not just about symptoms, but also about what has been going on in the life – what is happening at work, at home, in relationships. The wholistic view of “how are you feeling?” Gives a much better path to treatment and healing.
Some astrologers feel that Chiron is the true ruler of Virgo. Traditionally we see Mercury as the ruler of Virgo.
Chiron was the wounded healer. The tutor to the gods. The best physician. His archetype teaches us that the place at which we are most deeply wounded is the place from which we ate at the greatest ability to heal.
This is why the perfectionism associated with Virgo is such a gross oversimplification and a misguided idea.
Virgo is diagnosing its flaws and others to see where the ouch point is and is led to transform that point into a place of greater wisdom, strength, health and efficiency.
I love Virgo. I love the calm the energy brings you n you he face of tears or carnage. Big or small, Virgo is able to find the ouch point and find a way to soothe it so we can carry on with our journey.
If you keep subbing your toe on the same uneven spot on your hardwood floors, bang it into place!
If you keep having the same argument over and over with yourself or your friend, find another way to discuss it!
If that particular food keeps giving you a tummy ache, eat something else!!!!
Virgo can identify the point of discomfort and being a mutable sign (willing to transmute) it can engender change.
So go for it! Find the ouch points and sand them down. Pull out the thorns from your sides.
We have people to meet and places to go in Libra. Which starts on Friday, Sept 22. On the Equinox.
New Moons are about letting go. Virgo is one of the most important and useful of the year. We are moving out of an insulated self-development phase and into a time when that evolution comes from lessons learned from joining with others.
It’s hard to listen to your date with a toothache (metaphorical or real); so get thee to the dentist (real or cosmic) and prepare to join the party that is life out in the world.
