The Virgo New Moon takes place at 27°27′ of the sign on September the 20th 2017.
The lunation’s chart has a strong emphasis on the Earth element and vibrates intensely the energy of Virgo, since not only the Lights, but also Mercury, Venus and Mars are gathered within the first half of the maiden zodiac sign. It is now the most appropriate time to deal with any obligations and pending issues that require our attention and have been neglected, but it is also the right time for us to begin making improvements on how we live our everyday life.
Actions relating to our physical condition, our health, working conditions, new jobs and projects that require patience and dedication, seeking for employment , setting things straight and making practical moves are particularly favoured by this New Moon.
Yes all these are boring, especially after the vacation time, but now it is the time to organize and put things in order.
Mercury in the sign of his exaltation will function with detail and with perfectly logic, compensating fully for any tendencies of “flight” that Neptune that is in opposition brings. Mars conjunct Mercury will make us think with precision and will give skill in our actions. Our thoughts will easily discern what is it that needs to be done and more importantly how it will come to be realized.
At the sentimental level, with Venus having just entered Virgo, in the sign of its fall and quincunx with Chiron, we are still experiencing as “wounds” the revisions and decisions we have made in the past weeks. The New Moon itself is in opposition to Chiron at 26 ° Pisces, reinforcing a pattern of wounding and subsequent healing, that we have seen many times in the last years that Chiron is in Pisces.
But that is precisely the lesson we are supposed to get.
How it is that we experience our feelings and the way we relate has to be more practical and less of a daydreaming or illusion, so as that our relationships to become more balanced. It is through this process of cleansing that we may find the awaited renewal to our relationships, something that is aided by the trine that Venus makes with Uranus.
This New Moon may be boring, dull and plainly cathartic, not letting us to be carried away and holding us down to earth, but on the other hand its aim is to makes us more effective and to teach us to discern our priorities.
Until the next Full Moon in Aries that will wake us up for good and the next New Moon in Libra… stay grounded but don’t be boring.
