Art, Abundance and Physical Manifestation

Taurus is an Earth sign, which is ruled by Venus.

Therefore, think Art, Abundance and Physical manifestation as we move into this New Moon energy.

What makes you feel abundant?

What do you find beautiful?

What worth do you place on yourself and your own talents?

With plenty of Earth energy in this New Moon chart; including a sesquiquadrate to Saturn in Capricorn and a trine to Mars in the same sign, consider taking responsibility for where you want to create some solid results this Lunar Month…

… and remember – where your thoughts go, energy flows, so set some clear intentions, draw up a manifestation board and plan out the next phase of your life story.

What are you going to set in motion?

As Venus moves to square Chiron expect some heightened sensitivity related to beauty and; specifically what you find beautiful.

You may even find yourself moved to tears over this during the course of this Lunar Month or experience a heart-opening moment or two.

For some, an influential teacher or mentor may help to move you forward.

 

Get Excited about What Your Heart Longs to Express!!

Uranus (at the anuretic degree and poised to enter Taurus soon after this New Moon exacts) sits conjunct Mercury and square to Mars so whatever your plans, get excited!! and make sure that they offer you plenty of freedom!!

With Jupiter in Scorpio sextiling Pluto in Capricorn and both planets engaging with this New Moon, there’s plenty of energy to dig deep and create something tangible; potentially bringing yourself some powerful transformation and growth along the way, so make sure that whatever you’re building is aligned with your passions.

Venus (as the ruler of this chart) sits in Mercury’s sign (Gemini) and there’s a beautiful mutual reception with Mercury sitting in Venus’ sign (Taurus).

Mutual receptions are ‘double-whammy’ flags that Astrologers take note of and this energy is very self-expressive.

How do you want to communicate your heART with the World?

 

Money, Money, Money and the Quest for Financial Freedom

Money is likely to be a hot topic for the next 7 years beginning with Uranus’ ingress into Taurus just over 3 hours after this New Moon exacts.

If your way of earning a living feels constricting in any way (i.e. your work bores you terribly, or there’s an all work/no play kind of energy) then expect Uranus to trigger an almost in-suppressible feeling of rebellion within you; inspiring you to change it up (or bust you clean out of that rut); especially apt if Uranus happens to be hitting your chart at this time.

The quest for financial freedom, the pressing need to attend to future financial security and the question of what brings physical security and safety is likely to feature.

For more musings on what Uranus through Taurus could bring for us, here’s my report on that energy.

One thing is certain, however, Uranus brings change and usually of the unexpected kind, so if this energy is hitting your chart, hold onto your hat and try to go with the flow as much as you can.

Trust that the path you are taken on is opening you up to bigger and better things.

 

Well-Thought Out and Measured Progress

You’ll likely be brimming with inspired ideas (especially if this New Moon is hitting your chart (see below) or if you have any planets around 28 to 0 degress that are being contacted by Uranus right now).

But!!…

… the strong Capricorn/Taurus energy is asking that you take your time to ensure that what you’re manifesting is well-thought out.

Take the time to plan, feel into what you’re trying to create and let it settle before hitting the ‘Go’ button.

Taurus is tactile energy – let all of your senses engage with this one and only act on it when it feels right.

 

The Ground Beneath Your Feet

Taurus is the sign most associated with Mother Earth.

How connected do you feel to the Planet that you live on?

Do you feel that she is a living, thriving organism too?

When you walk in nature or swim in the Ocean how do you feel?

Grounded? Connected? Refreshed?

When you get out in Sunlight do you feel enlivened and energised?

When you eat fresh, colourful fruits and vegetables does your body respond in healthful ways?

Maybe there’s a reason for that…

If you’re feeling a lack of connection then visualising roots growing from your feet and down into the Earth as part of your morning ritual may help.

Take some deep breaths, get really relaxed, close your eyes and imagine those roots growing deep down into the ground.

Once they’re really deep, imagine Mother Earth sending her energy back up through those roots and into your body; filling and nourishing your cells.

Keep breathing and visualising/sensing that energy fill your entire body.

Now open your eyes – better?

 

Taking the Time to Value your Body

If your health has been less than good, maybe you can consider making an intention this month to place greater value on the body that has taken you through life to date.

I’m a big believer in ‘prevention is better than cure’.

What action can you take under this new moon that will show your body some love and ensure that the next part of your life is the most healthful part of your life?

Taurus is sensual and tactile energy – massage, a facial, warm epsom salt baths with essential oils and music that soothes the soul may lift you this month.

If, like me, you like a good bar of chocolate you may also like to check out Pana Chocolate and indulge in some raw cacao goodness – so delicious and my favourite chocolate of all time!!

Can you take the time to slow down and put yourself first?

 

Giving Gratitude for What Makes you Feel Secure

Successful manifestors teach us that to attract more into our lives we have to foster gratitude for what we already have.

Lighting a candle and sending up a prayer of thankfulness as the New Moon exacts will be a beautiful way to welcome in the energy of the Taurus New Moon.

Be thankful for a warm bed, the food you eat, the safety that you feel within your home/your community and magnify that energy out into the space around you.

Consider visualising a ball of light filled with this energy of gratitude, safety and abundance.

Imagine it growing and encompassing the World with the intention that all living beings can feel that sense of abundance, comfort, love and safety at this time.

 

What’s in Need of Healing and Potential Relationship Angst

Chiron’s aspect to Venus can bring up issues around feminine energy, lack, the sense of belonging or insecurities with Artistic talents and Worth.

Jealousy, Rivalry, Relationship Angst, Possessiveness, Materialism and the Inability to Value one’s own Beauty may arise.

If you find yourself connecting (or re-connecting) with such a pain point this lunar month, try writing out how you feel, sitting with how this makes your feel and allowing it to arise.

Often such contemplation can do wonders for our self-understanding and once we really let ourselves feel into our pain, we start to understand it and find ways to move through it.

Writing out feelings is also a great way to gain greater self understanding.

Attune to Your Inner Rhythm, Check in with Your Boundaries, Attend to Your Spiritual Self and Be Mindful of Delays and Mix Ups – New Moon in Pisces 2018 with Mercury set to Retrograde

New Moon in Pisces

 

Make sure you don’t miss another Mother Earth Astrology Moon report –

Sign up to my Newsletter here.

This month’s New Moon will exact in the sign of Pisces on 17th March 2018 at 11:11pm here in Brisbane (AEST, GMT +10).

 

Are you Nurturing your Spirit and Strengthening your Divine Connection?

Pisces energy puts you in touch with your inner Divine; the, often inexplicable, promptings of the soul, which attune you to your innate rhythm and let you know when you’re on the right path, that warns you when something may not be good for you and which urges you to slow down when you need to take a rest, so that you can bounce back re-charged and re-energised once more.

Activities; such as meditation, Yoga, listening to music (especially if it really moves you) and partaking in group activities that help you to feel aligned with others; such as dancing, cheering on a sport or helping out at a charity/institution, can all nourish the spirit and strengthen your connection to your higher self.

These activities also serve to strengthen your faith in life and can help you to feel at one with the World around you.

How are you nurturing your spiritual self?

 

Wholeness, Direction, Grace and Faith

Remember that true health encompasses the whole – Mind, Body and Spirit.

If we ignore and fail to nurture the needs of our spirit; or rather what we need from spirit, life can become stressful and meaningless.

When we honour our spirit we are graced with greater flow and ease and we are better able to attune to what it is that we truly need in every moment.

This doesn’t mean that life suddenly becomes blissful, easy and without challenge, instead we find the blissful through the challenge and we feel a greater sense of trust in the process that we are going through; a deep knowing that it is part of a lesson for our soul that each challenge we face will move us on to bigger and better things.

When we truly understand that we are a spirit on a human journey we’re also able to understand that we are never alone.

 

Compassion, Forgiveness and Reaching out for Help

We are surrounded by love every day and we only have to call upon those unseen entities for guidance in order to feel that love and to engender their support.

The stronger our attunement to the Spirit World the more likely it is that we will embody greater compassion and forgiveness for both our fellow human beings and for ourselves.

With Jupiter (as ruler of this New Moon) in trine aspect with the New Moon you are urged to take a deep look at how you might be holding yourself back from a stronger connection with your higher self.

This is a strong lunar month for the shifting of old patterns and blocks that may have been standing in your way.

Does the spiritual realm bring up a sense of fear for you?

Do you tend to push your rock up hill and push against your own innate rhythm; leading to exhaustion?

Perhaps you are someone that gives and gives and asks for nothing in return leaving you depleted and resentful.

Is it time to seek peace, to withdraw, enjoy solitude and restore your connection with yourself?

If you’re currently feeling lost, disheartened or stressed in your life then you might want to start a prayer ritual each evening as you’re getting into bed and then be open to what comes your way.

The signs, the symbols, the intuitive hunches…

You may also wish to start a gratitude journal and watch as the things you are thankful for appear to magnify.

If you find this difficult, you can start simply by writing thanks for just one thing that you were grateful for during the day that has just passed; even if it was simply for a warm bed, a meal, an on-time train or a smile from a stranger.

 

Be Faithful to your Inner Truth, Seek your Inner Guidance and Ignite your Purpose

Mercury and Venus will be conjunct in the sign of Aries at the time of this New Moon as Uranus finalises his journey through the latter degrees of this sign; urging you to honour your independence, to blaze your own trail and to do things your way.

If your spiritual connection is blocked or weak then it’s more likely that you’ll feel a lack of direction in life, but if you work on nurturing this connection by committing to just 10 minutes of meditation every day, it wont be long before you’ll feel that sense of guidance.

The only person who can truly know and understand your path during this lifetime is you.

That path is often littered with judgement and potential trials when you’re called to go against something that’s deemed unacceptable by your school, your family or the society in which you live.

Honouring your inner truth strengthens your spark, ignites your passions, builds on your courage and fills you with purpose.

Allowing others to dictate what is right for you might seem the easier or ‘right’ route, but it will actually have the opposite effect; leading to a sense of frustration, suppression, a sense of being unheard or unseen and ultimately you’ll find yourself hiding who you really are away and living a life based on fear.

Chiron conjunct the New Moon and also trine Jupiter may bring old wounds to the surface now to be acknowledged and moved through. What is your pain teaching you?

Perhaps it’s time to transform any fear that you may have around the recognition of spirit or your faith?

With Chiron, Neptune, The Moon and The Sun all joining forces in Pisces at the start of this Lunar month you are likely to feel an increase in sensitivity and compassion.

That could include strong empathy for your fellow human beings and the other living beings with whom you share the Earth (or Galaxy depending on how tuned in you are ;))

 

Jupiter Retrograde – How on Track are you?

The traditional ruler of Pisces is Jupiter, who will turn retrograde before this New Moon and continue his retrograde journey until 11th July 2018.

When Jupiter retrogrades it can seem like the rug of optimism has suddenly been pulled away from beneath your feet.

Usually you are called to assess where you may have been heading in the wrong direction or going to excess within your life.

Questions to Ponder:

  1. Is your outer World a reflection of who you truly are?
  2. Is the life that you’re living in line with your personal belief system and your moral compass?
  3. Where do you require greater balance?
  4. What is in need of transformation and growth – what needs to change for you to achieve this?

The saying: “It’s all Fun and Games until…” can be quite apt here.

If it turns out that you may have been a little off track, delays may also surface now and there can be a feeling of being thwarted in your attempts to expand in some area of life.

… and if something is taken away as Jupiter stations-retrograde (9th March) then it’s likely that whatever it was may not have proved beneficial in the long run, so take heart, remain flexible and trust.

All will be revealed in time…

 

Take Time to Reassess if your Life is What you Want it to Be

With Venus and Mercury sitting square to both Saturn and Pluto (both in Capricorn) at this New Moon it might just be time for you to take responsibility to ensure that you are living your life in a way that aligns with your values, desires and interests.

If this isn’t the case then it may be time for a little soul-searching and some transformation in how you choose to live from this point forward.

This is especially apt, as Mercury begins his first retrograde cycle of the year on 23rd March.

Take time to ponder.

Does your life inspire you? Where could you be a little more brave?

 

Deal with Relationship Angst Early On

Relationships, the way in which you are relating and/or your communication style could also be up for assessment this month; especially if power struggles, asserting for your independence and/or weak boundaries are an issue.

If problems exist expect them to magnify in the build up to the Full Moon on 31st March.

Also be mindful of Jupiter’s Retrograde in the sign of Scorpio.

If there’s anything particularly gnarly that you’ve been avoiding it may just surface during the early part of Jupiter’s retrograde (early March).

Scorpio isn’t always an easy sign, as it can entail facing what you’d rather not, but if you can take a deep breath and a deep dive and if you are willing to look at what’s in the deepest recesses you have a strong opportunity of some powerful transformation.

Use Mercury’s retrograde period to reassess, revisit and review what isn’t working.

An honest conversation early on could prevent a full blown melt down as the energy heightens.

With Mars hanging around the final degree of Sagittarius at the New Moon try a little honesty, speak your truth (with compassion) and take time to contemplate if you can do things differently.

 

Other Watch points this lunar month

  • Assess your energetic boundaries
    • How happy are you to say ‘No’ when you’re really not feeling something?
    • Do you tend to take on the energy of other people quite readily and do you know how to stop this from happening?
    • Do you have a tendency to want to rescue others or ‘save the World’. There’s a difference between compassionate understanding and trying to get someone to see something that they’ll probably never see (head/wall/banging) … Save yourself – the rest will follow 😉
    • Do you know how to re-charge your energy when you’re feeling depleted?
    • Can you happily shut yourself away and zone out when you need to without feeling guilty or ‘bad’?
  • Be mindful of signs of where you may be succumbing to ‘victim-mentality’ – it can be hard to see sometimes, but in my experience, most of our pain points (probably a high 80%) can be caused by our own actions, belief-systems and behaviours.
    • What do you need to take responsibility for?
    • Where are you playing the blame game?
    • Where are you giving away your power?
  • The Art of balanced Giving and Receiving
    • Giving and Giving without allowing yourself to receive will lead to resentment, exhaustion and maybe both. Don’t be a martyr. Tune into the Universal flow of energy and ensure that you’re keeping your giving and receiving barometer in balance. That’s where the magic happen
  • With Mercury and Jupiter both retrograding through Mars-ruled signs this lunar month, be prepared for some sparks to fly. Rework and some reassessment in whichever area of your life is affected is highly likely.
    • Mercury -> Look for the area where Aries 4 degrees to Aries 17 degrees resides in your birth chart. What does this house (area of life) represent? Where are you more likely to experience communication issues, travel delays or mix ups?
    • Jupiter ->Look for the area where Scorpio 13 degrees to Scorpio 23 degrees resides in your birth chart. What does this house (area of life) represent? What in your life needs to be re-visited and re-worked before greater growth can be achieved? What is holding you back from being the best expression of yourself and where might your life not be in line with your personal moral compass or future direction?
    • Both Mercury and Jupiter -> With Mars (ruler of Aries and Jupiter) moving into Capricorn and set to conjunct Saturn  it will be good to ask yourself how you can take responsibility for your relationships, for any repairs, reviews or rework that may be necessary in whatever arises. You may also be caused to slow down and delays may occur now with Saturn literally putting the brakes on any further Mars momentum. Thankfully Saturn also bestows discipline and with care, caution and patience all can be resolved in time.

Looking Out for One Another, Common Goals, Projection and Vision – New Moon in Aquarius

New Moon in Aquarius

Make sure you don’t miss another Mother Earth Astrology Moon report –

Sign up to my Newsletter here.

 

Common Goals and Feeling the Love

This week’s New Moon falls in the sign of Aquarius.

Aquarian energy is aligned with common goals, group support, humanitarianism and the Vision.

This is a great New Moon to re-connect with your why.

Why are you doing the things that you’re doing and why are you striving for the goals that you’re currently going after?

If you’re responsible for (or are part of) a group of people now is a great time to start afresh on a new footing and this is a great month for an inspiring leadership talk or a team meeting about the future direction of the company/project/group.

With Venus conjunct Neptune in compassionate Pisces the month ahead holds a beautiful soft, compassionate energy.

What do those around you need from you?

Can you see beyond individual patterns and behaviours?

 

Eclipse Season and the Possibility of a Healthy dose of Projection

If things have been a little hairy or intense of late then remember we are in our first Eclipse season of 2018 – intense times indeed.

Eclipse energy can really illuminate our shadow side – like a Full Moon on steroids, so if you’ve had a tough time of it this last few weeks or you’re butting heads with family, friends, lovers, colleagues, the post man…

…you may just be experiencing a healthy dose of projection.

What is this situation showing you – about yourself?

If you find yourself blaming others or going into victim mode, take a deep breath and explore what the situation is really showing you about you.

Some of the negative aspects of Aquarian energy that may come to light now are:

  • rigid thinking,
  • fixed opinions (or the tendency to be overly opinionated),
  • believing oneself to be too different to ever get on with others (potentially leading to isolation/loneliness)
  • believing oneself superior or more ‘evolved’ than those around them,
  • excessive rebellion,
  • the need to shock others

 

Progressive Ideas/Out of the Box Thinking

Mercury is also in Aquarius and sits alongside the Sun and Moon bringing the potential for out of the box ideas, progressive thinking and a lightening-fast mind.

This is further enhanced by Uranus forming a harmonious sextile with all 3 – enlightenment, awakening and the potential for surprising and beneficial changes are all there for those who wish to take the opportunity and tune into that.

 

Shifting Stuck Patterns

If you find yourself going round and round at each Full Moon/Eclipse in the same modes of behaviour and if you’re struggling to know what to do to move forwards, I highly recommend seeking out a coach/healer/therapist, who is trained to help you in the way that you need.

I am truly blessed to have Jane at Soul Clarity to work with and to help me to navigate my life.

Over the last 7 months, she has helped me to make so much progress.

Her techniques are so magical and powerful.  The tools that she has taught me have been nothing short of miraculous.

I really don’t know how I’d have navigated this time without her.

There are many wonderful healers around on this Earth and we’re all in need of a little help, so I encourage you to look for one that resonates with you, if you feel called to do so.

I really believe that you can change whatever is going on for you. You just have to take the steps.

Jane can be found at http://www.soulclarity.com.au.

 

Busy, Busy, Busy

With Jupiter in Scorpio squaring The Moon, The Sun and Mercury there is a lot of potential for growth and opportunity.

This Month holds the energy of hope and optimism, but there is also the likely tendency of feeling overstretched.

No matter what’s going on in your life, remember to take time for you.

 

Be Mindful of Your Actions

With Venus and Mars both placed in Jupiter’s ruling signs and squaring one another it’s wise to hold back a little before acting and to first consider those around you.

To not do so could lead to a lack of tact and hurt feelings.

Placing your hand on your heart and checking in with your heart-space before interacting could work wonders in mitigating potential relationship angst or a case of putting one’s foot in it.

There’s also a note here to be mindful of your footprint as you go about your daily life. Are you actions taking care of the Earth, your people and whatever you see around you?

“Are you helping the problem or are you contributing to it?”

 

Tender Feelings and Heightened Intuition

 

With Chiron also joining Venus and Neptune in Piscses you (or those around you) could be feeling tender and extremely sensitive this month and may find yourself re-visiting past hurts.

There is also the potential for heightened intuition, mystical experiences and with so much Jupiter energy around the call to adventure could be strong…

… where will your own personal journey take you next?

With Mars and Venus both square to Neptune the blurring of boundaries could be an issue as could the tendency towards unrealistic expectations.

Idealism is beautiful to aspire to, but remember that true unconditional love lies in loving a person or thing exactly as they are.

If you find focus challenging this month or feel that your energy appears to be depleted quite easily you could have Neptune to thank for that also.

Playing music, swimming in natural bodies or water; such as the Ocean and Meditation will all help to re-energise and centre you.

You might also need to more strongly protect your own emotional and psychic energy this month.

The New Moon will exact  on February 16th at 07:04am (AEST, GMT+10) here in Brisbane.

 

I’ll leave you with an Aquarius-themed Louise Hay affirmation:

“In order to receive love and acceptance from my family, I start the ball rolling by loving and accepting them exactly as they are now”.

… and that family can be biological, soul or the ability to see every human being and animal species on this planet as one big family –

… whatever applies to you 🙂

Be Kind, Listen to your Intuition, Act with Responsibility and Get excited about Possibilities this Month.

Transmuting Self-Sabotage, Contemplating your Vision and The Opportunity to Engage in Some Potent Dream-Seeding – The New Moon in Sagittarius

 

Release, Realign & Reignite(1).png

Sign up to my Newsletter here.

 

An Enthusiastic Build up

Our last New Moon of 2017 falls in the sign of Sagittarius and with both luminaries (Sun and Moon) and 3 planets (Saturn, Venus and Mercury) all aligned in this sign it can mark an enthusiastic build up to your end of year celebrations.

Sagittarius energy is bountiful, optimistic and generous and with Uranus in Aries contacting this New Moon there’s an air of excitement and a strong emphasis on the fire element; bringing plenty of energy, enthusiasm and motivation.

 

An Important Note on Grounding and Breathing

There is a lack of both Earth and Air Energy in this particular chart, so it’s important to look after yourself and your bodily needs this month.

Ensure that you are taking adequate rest, spending time in nature, eating wholesome nature-provided foods and that you are connecting with your breath – through deep breathing and/or meditation.

Air Energy reminds us that breath is life.

There is the potential for much inspiration and you will need to take adequate steps to ensure that you are grounding those perceptions by writing them down or creating a plan of action for how you are going to achieve them.

Earth energy brings the ability for Manifestation. Without it, it’s all hot air.

 

A Potent Time to Dream-Seed

These points are super important, as with the New Moon also conjunct the Galactic Centre (along with Saturn) you are gifted a fantastic opportunity to seed your intentions for 2018.

This year has marked Saturn’s (29-year) return to this point (Galactic centre) and it marks a pivotal moment for taking responsibility for the life that you are living.

Do you feel in control of where you’re headed and are you busy creating a life that’s in line with the truth of who you are?

… or are you blowing in the wind; living an out-dated belief system and feeling bound to others’ rules?

Do you wake each morning happy to be alive; feeling inspired, abundant and free to express yourself?

… In every area of your life?

Are you honouring growth, the in-taking of new wisdom and and the opportunity to be more of who you are?

 

Take Some Time to Journey Within

With Mercury still retrograde this week (until 23rd December (AEST)) and Mars and Jupiter forming a beautiful trine with Neptune in Pisces, you have a beautiful opportunity to do some soul-searching.

Meditation and tuning into your inner wisdom could bring powerful results.

Your inner wisdom knows what’s sincerely right for you and yet, how many times do you push on and ignore what your real (inner) self is wanting; perhaps believing that you cannot live a life in rhythm with who you genuinely are?

Why not use this week to take the time to sum up your experience of 2017….

  • What did you do well this year?
  • Which goals did you accomplish?
  • What were the highlights?
  • What are you grateful for (that this year has bought to you)?

Slowing down to understand where you’re currently at, what you’re grateful for and where you’re desiring change will help you to actively plant those new intentions for 2018.

With Venus also strongly aligned with this New Moon, it’s a great time to consider your values, what you desire and what will bring you greater freedom.

 

Setting Intentions that Align with your Vision

What does your future self look like?

What is your vision?

Which areas of your life are working for you and which aren’t?

With Mercury set to move direct on 23rd December, under the beams of our next Crescent Moon this is a beautiful day to make space for goal setting…

… focusing on what you’d like to birth during 2018 with your new found clarity.

If you’d like some help with pushing through on those goals, you can sign up for my Lunar Illuminations here and receive emails throughout the Lunar Month as we move through the 8 Lunar phases; understanding the best time to push & go and the best time to rest & slow.

 

Transmuting Self Sabotage, Moving Forwards Unencumbered

Jupiter (the ruler of this New Moon) is continuing his journey through the sign of Scorpio; travelling closely with Mars and bringing a strong push for a deep look-within.

And with Chiron’s contact to the New Moon, the need to acknowledge old wounds and patterns of behaviour that sabotage rather than support your growth is likely to be needed.

Seeking out a healing modality that calls to you at this time can ensure that you enter the new year less encumbered with old baggage…

… or at least that you’ll be on your way to a good clear out; making room for the new and all those exciting possibilities that could be…

 

Feel the Fear… and Do it Anyway

If you fear looking within and dealing with what you’ll find there, please consider the alternative – likely stagnation, going round in circles and the possibility of getting or remaining stuck…

Now, in all honesty, what’s more scary?

As someone who embraces change and self-development as essential to manifesting a joyous and healthful life for myself, I encourage you to take a deep breath and to dive deeply.

Who knows where that brave step will take you and who you’ll be as we round out 2018!!

Embrace the Changes and Get Excited!! – Re-Thinking Rituals, Re-Hashing Health-Full Habits & Re-Doing the Day to Day – New Moon in Virgo Sept 2017

New Moon in Virgo Sept 20th 2017

If you’d like to receive my New and Full Moon reports in your Inbox a little earlier each month, you can sign up to my Newsletter here.

Are you feeling busy?

The Virgo month (when the Sun is moving through the sign of Virgo) can certainly have us all feeling on task and potentially overwhelmed with a never ending To Do list.

Time to Hone Skills and Make Ideas Happen

September’s New Moon falls on 20th September at 03:30:34pm (AEST) in the sign of Virgo.

Virgo is the sign of ritual and service; of honing your talents and your skills, so that you can offer them in service to humanity.

If the Leo energy of last month and August’s New Moon Leo Eclipse energy) has you brimming with creativity then this month will be a time of refinement and of nutting out the details for those inspired ideas.

There’s also an air of excitement around with so much Uranus playing into the picture (more on this below).

It’s time to make those changes!!

 

Time to Refine, Learning the Lessons and Paying Attention to Detail

Mercury rules this Moon and is travelling direct once more at the time of the New Moon.

What lessons did Mercury Retrograde bring to you and what can you now set in motion to ensure that you heed those lessons?

Did the run up to the Pisces Full Moon on the 6th bring confusion your way or perhaps a sense of letting go and releasing?

When Mercury backtracks through his own sign of Virgo there can be lessons around precision, taking care and paying attention to the details – floor wiped (in my case)!!

This is potent energy for getting down to the nitty-gritty details and for discerning what will and what won’t work.

Instilling the practical, diligent and orderly, you may find that this Virgo New Moon is just what you need to instigate the actions needed to manifest your inspirations into something tangible and Virgo energy can certainly imbue you with the work ethic to get the job done.

How can you work with greater efficiency?

We’re now in the ‘Action Phase’ of this particular Mercury cycle, so go all out and implement those changes that you’ve been considering.

 

Moving Forward, Accepting Mistakes as Lessons and Kindness to Self and Others

Mistakes offer us the ability to make needed change within our lives and without them we might never review nor improve anything, so it’s important to be grateful for them.

Yes, I know that they can seem like an inconvenience at the time and it can be difficult to actually be thankful that you or something or someone else messed up, but you now have the potential to make something amazing even better – be it a habit, your health, a dearly loved relationship or a fulfilling job.

Therefore, be gentle with yourself and others, as Virgo energy can be critical and, at times, sharp.

With the Moon in tight opposition to Chiron and squaring Saturn at this New Moon it’s important to take responsibility, to act on any lessons and to not spend your energy needlessly berating yourself or others over it.

This type of energy can bring up old wounds and pain points – what is needing to heal and to be acknowledged?

No one is perfect and one mess up does not mean that you’re not cut out for whatever it is that you want to achieve in life.

The best movies always have a low point, where we wonder if that’s it. Is it all over? Will the hero give in, throw in the towel and walk away?

Or…

… will that hero dig deep and look at their experience in another light?

Will the set back prompt a re-ignition of their desire(s)? Usually, yes!!

Are you going to be the hero of your own story?

And remember humour!!

Virgos usually have a certain amount of wit up their sleeves to get them through any perceived disasters.

Learning to laugh at yourself can sometimes be the BEST medicine!!

As a friend’s Mum always used to say to her “Pick Yourself Up and Brush Yourself Down”.

You may have also connected with past emotions, patterns or a strong sense of grief as we neared the exact alignment of the previous Full Moon (September 6th).

Did you acknowledge those feelings and allow yourself time to process them?

With regards to the patterns/past emotions, have you now started to implement some strategies to help you to release and move through them?

Often we can connect with old stuff that we thought we’d already healed when planets travel retrograde.

If this happened to you, then it’s likely just another layer of the onion wanting to be peeled off or a reminder of the need to reset some things in life – maybe the need for stronger boundaries or the re-implementation of mindful rituals.

 

Health

If the recent Eclipse portal and Mercury Retrograde bought ill health your way, this New Moon is a great one for setting intentions to refine and retune your diet and daily routines.

That’s because, we have all 5 of the Astrological personal planets falling in Virgo under this New Moon.

The Personal Planets are the ones closest to the Earth, which affect us on a personal energetic level. They are:

  • The Moon (our emotions/needs),
  • The Sun (our essence, illumination, fulfilment),
  • Mars (how we act),
  • Venus (what we love, desires, relationships, finances)
  • and Mercury (how we think, what we say and how we say it, interests).

Virgo is the sign associated with self-development, sickness, daily routines, work, service, habits, purification and rituals.

This is strong energy for setting those well-being intentions as well as intentions for improving the day to day functioning of your life.

How can you make improvements in these areas?

What can you bring in now and commit to within your daily life that will help action this?

Do you:

  • Regularly Exercise, Eat Whole Foods (from nature) and Nourish your body with goodness

or

  • Are you Loading on the Doughnuts, Takeaways and Packaged Food far too habitually?

 

Remember small steps👣 are the way forward.

 

Are You Listening to What Your Body Needs?

Mercury is the planet of communication and his rulership over Virgo reminds us that our bodies are constantly sending us signals as to how it’s tracking.

Your body gets sick for a reason and it’s simply trying to get you to listen to what it really needs (and no, that probably isn’t a flu jab – well, unless you want to pump yourself full of bio-hazards and neuro-toxicity).

Over here in Australia there has been an ‘epidemic’ of the flu and yet the flu jab is pushed more than ever nowadays.

Interestingly, if you watch The Truth about Vaccines documentary it points out that those who take up the flu vaccine are more likely to fall victims to the flu virus during pandemics and epidemics and it explains the reasons why.

 

Illness as a Journey

Personally, I believe that illness is part of our human journey.

Being ill tells us when our bodies need rest, need to release toxicity and need to recover (note the use of ‘re’ words here – very apt for Mercury Retrograde and yes, this last Eclipse portal   was highlighted as a big potential for illness (by Bernadette Brady), so it’s not really surprising that this has happened.

Listen to your body and work with what it’s telling you.

Suppression is not healing and we can only ever truly heal when we own 100% what is happening right now with our own health.

Where’s yours at?…

Do you need:

  • To introduce more healthful food into your day
  • A morning, lunch time or evening walk
  • Drink adequate water (1 litre per 22kgs of body weight)
  • Ensure adequate rest (aim for 8 hours sleep a night).

Would improvements help alleviate any current pain that you’re experiencing or mitigate the severity of future illness symptoms?

There really is so much emphasis these days on ‘doing, doing, doing’ nowadays and with some that’s led to lots of suppression in the form of taking pharmaceuticals to ‘hurry back to work’.

This is not tuning in to what the true self really needs (emotionally) and what the body really needs (rest, recovery, nutritional balance and harmony)

 

Intuitive Hunches/The Importance of Remaining Grounded

With Mercury and Mars aspecting Neptune at this New Moon your intuition and sensitivity could be ramped up a notch.

But then so could the potential for confusion and for feeling foggy.

If you’re relating to the fogginess or you’re connecting with anxious feelings then beginning a daily meditation ritual could work wonders ✨🙏🏻🙇🏽

Combining the Neptune love of the mystical and the Virgo love of rituals is likely to help.

You may also wish to consider how your current daily rituals are serving you.

 

Making a Song and Dance of your Creativity

If you’re already meditating regularly or are an Arty type then the chances are that you already know what you want to bring through to your life.

How can you include more of your artistic passions and soulful creativity into your everyday life?

Neptune reminds us to BE and to go with the flow, so remember to tune into your heart and what is happening around you whilst you’re chasing after those goals.

Things tend of go much more smoothly when we’re truly in tune with what is arising around us.

 

Focused Action can Bring Transformation and Results

With Pluto in Trine aspect to Mercury and Mars, focused action (including some of that intuitive tuning-in bought about by Neptune) should help you to achieve your results this month and if transformation is part of your goal then this is great energy for ushering that in.

Pluto adds emotional strength and tenacity.

 

Magic is in the Air!! It’s all Very Exciting!!

Neptune also presides over music and movies; anything that opens you up to the possibility of being part of something greater than yourself and with Uranus and Neptune also connecting at this New Moon you may find yourself drawn to an ideal or getting lost in a fantasy.

An outing to the cinema or a concert could prove magical right now; as could every day life if you allow yourself to see the synchronicities and the every day miracles that occur.

With the Jupiter/Uranus opposition closing in for it’s final hit and with Uranus aspecting the Moon, there is so much excitement and possibility in the air!!

 

The Importance of Being Grounded and the Need for Change and Adventure

Be wary of ‘throwing the baby out with the bath water’ in your desire to be free of what you see as limiting or restrictive within your life, however.

With Jupiter travelling through Libra, this may well apply to your partnership or another significant relationship.

What is in need of a change, more balance, a shake up or a breath of fresh air?

This is great energy for instigating changes and for imbuing you with the confidence and push to make them happen.

Just ensure that you’re clear on what it is that you really want…

… and then get really excited!!!

If you feel that you’re looking at things realistically and your heart is crying out for you to make the leap, then this could just be the time to finally do it.

Just be warned that Virgo energy usually requires that you to work for those changes and that you practice true diligence along the way.

Life is a balancing act and, although we don’t want to walk away from situations that can be worked on and improved upon, we don’t want to remain in unfulfilling jobs, relationships or positions that are going nowhere either.

That just leads to suppression and stagnant energy.

So, what is it that you want and what is it that you don’t want?

Are you going to heed that call to adventure?

 

The Need for a Purpose and to be of Service vs. Workaholic Tendencies

Virgo energy loves to serve.

Do you feel that your day to day work is serving an important role that not only helps others, but brings you a great deal of fulfilment as you do so?

It can be important to also be mindful of serving yourself as you move through your day, as Virgos can become so intent on helping others that they can let their own needs fall to one side.

Looking after your own care, setting appropriate boundaries and taking rest when it is needed will lessen the potential for future illness, nervous disorders, anxiety and restless nights.

Honouring yourself and your needs can also lead to you finding greater enjoyment in your job and looking for what you enjoy about your work and finding ways to make it even more enjoyable can mitigate work-blues.

What about your work brings you a sense of purpose?

What personal lessons are you currently learning as you carry out your work?

Do you enjoy the people that you work with, the environment, the work itself?
