New Moon in Virgo — September 20th 2017

Our New Moon in Virgo crests on the 20th of the month at 12:30 AM EST (add one hour for DST), at 27 degrees of the sign. I like the New Moon in Virgo as it seems to be able to rid us of the past few months clutter. Virgo so loves order and neatness, that it is almost impossible not to find a project that we have been putting off — whether finding warmer clothes for the coming cooler weather, or just getting rid of the beach towels and Summer toys that are in the garage! Summertime can make us a little lackadaisical, and we put off those bothersome chores that come with the changing of the season. So we can indeed find ourselves picking up the renewed vigor from the Universe, that will re-energize us in getting to those tasks that when cleaned up will make us feel lighter and more free.

In fact there is a lot of major Planetary energy going around this month for us to choose from — now that the North Node is in Leo, it is complementary to both Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries giving us a Fiery boost both mentally and physically! Working within the Planetary dynamism can and will allow us to get the most bang-for-the- buck in tackling those onerous jobs we have been dreading. Tune in to the lavish gifts that the Universe is providing  to us, and find your true inner bliss!

Our tiny dynamo Pluto will be turning Direct on the 28th allowing its more positive spirit into our realm — dust off those delayed plans and find a new way to refine them, in order for you to be able to make them work. Still have anger or resentment issues with a family member, take a new look at what’s really been going on — perhaps you are more frustrated with your own lack of forward motion. Relax a little, and give yourself and your loved ones the benefit of the doubt. Everyone is trying their best — but life has a way of putting a spanner in the works no matter how hard we seem to try to get it right! Remember we are all human-BEings and none of us is perfect.

Along with Mercury now in forward motion, we can somewhat safely make plans that have the possibility of coming to fruition. And the Autumnal Equinox on the 22nd can bring another breath of fresh air into our lives. With the Sun entering Libra we mark another Season of change, from seed, to growth, to harvest — our lives have an ancient rhythm that is instilled into our DNA. We all are captive to the timing of the Seasons as the months quickly pass by, and we must bow to the primordial cadence, that is the Earth’s harmony and music in accordance with the  eternal heartbeat of the Universe.

With our New Moon in Virgo, things of a practical and useful nature are in the forefront — Virgo doesn’t like waste or superfluous meandering — no, Virgo wants definite plans, practical solutions and the sooner the better! So — when thinking of your affirmations and requests to write under the auspices of the New Moon’s energy, be succinct, practical and concise. With Virgo details are important — but not too many — brief but comprehensive will be the best way to express yourself. Perhaps not as easy as it sounds — sorry!

Virgo wants sensible and easily understood affirmations — especially about personal needs and/or desires. Desperately need a new job/raise/promotion — now is the time to be clear in your intentions. Home need upgrading — put your most practical ideas down on paper and “see” those improvements as if already finished. Need more organization, vision, tenacity, better health habits, stamina in your life — the New Moon in Virgo can help. Think about what would truly improve your life right now and write out your affirmations, desires, and wishes on paper. Feel your own energy blending with the mastery of the Universal flow and be one with the basic elements and origins of life.

Our New Moon in Virgo crests at 2:30 AM EST (add one hour for DST),  as this is the last aspect before the Moon enters Libra, we have a Moon Void of Course condition. A Moon Void of Course time period lasts until the Moon enters the next sign — when this is in play, there is confusion, and misperception — our plans fail to come to fruition, and we cannot seem to get anywhere. So, although the best time to write out our affirmations is usually within a couple of hours of the New Moon cresting — I am strongly suggesting that we wait until the Moon has entered Libra at 5:06 AM EST (plus one for DST) before writing out our affirmations. So all day after the Moon enters Libra will be fine for writing down our lists.

Actually the timing may be perfect except for those few night-owls who would ordinarily be happy to write our their lists in the wee hours of the morning.  For most of us the daytime is much preferred — good luck in reaching your most ardent wishes.





New Moon in Taurus — April 26th 2017

Our New Moon crests in Taurus this month on the 26th at 6 degrees of the sign at 7:16 AM EST (add one hour for DST). This month has been plagued by a Rx Mercury (still in place until May 3rd),  however, Venus  did go direct mid-month giving us a more positive outlook on our relationships, and perhaps lightened our hearts with renewed hope. Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto remain in Rx mode through next month, all presenting us with challenges and less than ideal input from their lofty realms. Jupiter Rx in Libra can unbalance the status-quo, that will make our decision making a bit more difficult — be sure to have all the facts in deciding any major lifestyle decisions. Saturn Rx in Sagittarius has tweaked us by making us review our choices for our future and bringing some serious evaluations about where we want to be in the next 5, 10, or 15 years.  Pluto Rx in Capricorn is a conundrum — not overly happy in Saturn’s natural realm, we find we must be more practical and use more common sense in our everyday lives. Still, Pluto has more sway over worldly woes and actions — perhaps wiser minds will take charge and make this world a bit safer and kinder for all, other options will have consequences.

The Taurus New Moon gives all of us the chance to influence our lives and the lives of our loved ones, but also — if enough folks could think positive thoughts about our fragile world, perhaps it would offset the imbalance we are experiencing and bring about constructive and encouraging changes for the better. Indeed — this is the only world we have — and it behooves us to treat it and all of its inhabitants well, with respect and love.

Now to the changes we can help to make in our own lives — the Taurus New Moon is good for so many reasons — ruled by Venus, it encompasses beauty in every form, loving kindness, acceptance and admiration for everyone, on a practical note — Taurus has reign over money and real-estate, business and powerful mentors. Those who are born near this New Moon on the 26th will begin a new lunar cycle enabling them to move forward with those plans that are closest to their hearts. All of us can benefit when we tune into the rhythm of the Galaxy, feel the impulses that emanate from the deepest abysses of space and time. These cadences have been streaming throughout our sphere since creation, bringing us the evidence of a greater power, a Universal consciousness of spiritual connection, that joins all of us in our pathway in this lifetime.  Learn to use these karmic gifts of Providence to enable you on your individual journey with those for whom you love and care.

We all deserve to be loved and to find happiness during our lifetime here on Earth — with the help of the ebb and flow of our Galaxy we can find a way to put our hopes and dreams forth into the ether — where they can take root and become manifest in our own lives. Each New Moon has its own profile that will make your wishes more powerful — in Taurus we can wish for financial stability, wealth, and for a loving and caring family, we can release our anger and stubbornness with the stroke of a pen just by writing out our hopes, wishes and affirmations. Let your imagination soar to new heights and think outside the box to stimulate a new wave of desires that haven’t been requested heretofore.

With the positive aspects of Taurus, you can bring more positive ways of moving forward — Taurus has the ability to move to a goal step-by-step, never looking back and keeping your heart positive and goal-oriented. Use this power to move yourself into a fresh way of seeing your pathway — Taurus can also keep you on your path — steady and committed, they are unwavering in their knack for getting things done.

As always — try to find a quiet time to sit and think about what would improve your life right now — write as many affirmations or wishes as you like — and breathe into each word a sense of accomplishment and finality. Pretend for a moment that your wish has already been answered — see yourself with all of your wishes completed in a positive manner. You can write out your affirmations all day after the New Moon crests on the 26th at 7:16 AM EST (add one hour for DST) for the most potent times of New Moon energy. However, the power of the New Moon can last for the next 48 hours.

Blend with the harmony of the Universe in order to fulfill your most ardent dreams — feel the flow of the Life Force we enjoy here on Earth. Immerse yourself into the dynamic atmosphere that surrounds us every day — and refresh every atom of your body with a spiritual and transcendent renewal. There is magic in the air we breathe, and the hope and wonder of our mere existence as we evolve ever higher on our human journey.
