Solar Eclipses open up opportunities for expansion of consciousness.
This New Moon eclipse cycle has the Sun (identity) and Moon (emotions) in earth sign Virgo, the sign ruled by Mercury. The North Node (life purpose), Jupiter (expansion) and Mercury (communication) are all in Virgo also.
This line-up of planets highlights the many skillful, precise, practical ways earthy Virgo energies can be implemented in our lives. When we discern what works and what does not work in our current life choices, we can chart an efficient new course. Jupiter lends an expansive quality to the many possible modes of expression the new course may lead us to.
This New Moon in Virgo has the potential of being a catalyst for healing when we are willing to make life-enhancing positive changes.
Mercury in Virgo is Retrograde
August 30 to September 22
The timing of Mercury in Virgo turning retrograde just prior to this New Moon invites the attention to detail and thoughtful reflection that precedes the launching of a new undertaking. Whatever we are experiencing in our lives, we will benefit from taking time to review, re-evaluate, release, reclaim, re-align and renew.
These are Mercury’s gifts at this time.
Enjoy the New Moon Energies!!!
