WE LIVE UNDER THE SUN & DREAM UNDER THE MOON
The hard working and detailed-oriented sign of Virgo takes the reins of emotional and deep-sensing Moon, as well as still has control of the Sun. We also have many of the core planets: Mercury, Venus and Mars joining in, transiting within Virgo as well. While Virgo and Venus do not get along, since Virgo is too sensible and prefers being useful for the ones they love, over romanticism, we can consider the other planets working with this detail-oriented energy in giving us a leg-up on projects and goals we have been wanting to work on.
This is a prime time to focus on the details of certain goals you have been wanting to bring to life, as this Virgo energy is ideal in making sense of the dreams and intuitive callings which the Pisces Full Moon had stirred within us recently. Virgo will dig deep to bring the facts towards the surface of your understanding, in how you can make big plans happen with the perfect brain-storming tactics.
Virgo doesn’t have time to stop and smell the roses, as the period it rules is considered our Harvest Season, where our ancestors often had to work the hardest to ensure survival during the harsh winter months. So, this is a great energy to work with in cultivating and bringing forth your efforts towards something much higher that will serve you in the long-term. As Virgo’s motto is, Work hard and play later. As the sun transitions into Libra within the following days of this New Moon, we will be graced with a much-needed pause to bring some creative flair into our projects and goals, and also indulge in the fruits from our labor.
"And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of 12 stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth."
- Revelations 12:1-2
Now, before we get any further, I do want to bring attention to one major misconception that is going around in terms of a “bible prophecy”. The world is NOT going to end on September 23, 2017.
We can thank this Virgo energy to think critically, and not to take in facts without first doing our own research, also, there is a powerful Mars-Neptune opposition which is ideal for intuitive insight, and seeing beyond the smoke and mirrors when it comes to calling out deception and misinformation. I have taken a little time to research some of these articles floating around by mainstream media outlets, and have found that many are incorrect about Jupiter being in Virgo – it will be in Libra, and has been since September 12th. Keep in mind that when we go looking for signs, we can often find them because perspective will persuade common sense in connecting dots, when logically the dots are not there.
I would say that this Moon is getting us ready for a mass-scale awakening as Virgo never takes anything at face value, and aren’t keen on believing in something that does not make “perfect sense”, as Virgo has an uncommon amount of common sense, and is probably the most logical and critical to details, than all the zodiac. This is a good time to consider the imperfections within the structures which lead us – within ourselves, and also within our environment.
Virgo is all about higher-awareness and will serve as the skeptic we all need when sometimes "seeing is truly believing", they are great at debunking illusions which create mass hysteria. When everyone is convinced a ghost had moved an object, Virgo will be the first to consider the wind or other realistic perspectives before getting swept away.
So while this alignment in Virgo is rare, happening once every 7,000 years, we mustn’t allow an obvious “hidden agenda” to cast a sense of fear towards this powerful event which is to help us rise above a system that doesn’t work, and to set better habits for one that will. There always seems to be some sort of “end of the world” prophecy during an alignment which is meant for ascension, and so this is to aid in lowering the vibrational frequency of the collective during a time that is meant to aid in raising it.
