This New Moon is Tuesday, September 17th at 4:01 am PST at 0 degrees Virgo in the star of Uttara Phalguni. Often referred to as "the Wedding Star” due to the marriage of Shiva and Parvati taking place here, it is a placement where contracts are made and honored. Barely moved from Leo both the Sun and Moon are moving from the place of rulership and royalty to the place where organization, details and purity rule the roost. Here everything is scrutinized and categorized and put in its place. This is where we want neatness and order and if we could we would scrub everything, including ourselves, back to a pristine state. Virgo is the sign of the virgin, the pre-pubescent girl, and we can see in the collective both an obsession with this state of girlhood and a strong desire to protect it.
Mercury is here already, in his sign of exaltation and also rulership and this is where we will find discernment. While neither the Sun or the Moon particularly love being in Virgo, due to the hyper-sensitivity to anything being “off” or “wrong”, having the ruler there can bring a lot of wisdom. We have brought a bit more discernment to our processing of information as of the past couple weeks that Mercury has been here, and that will continue in this New Moon cycle.
Jupiter is also direct now, and Saturn moving that direction in 11 days, both still in their own signs. This helps us feel “forward-moving” with our inspiration and teachings (or school) and Saturn will help us feel strong in our commitments and boundaries. Mars, on the other hand, is Retrograde in his own sign of Aries and the anger is starting to burst out. The stifling quality of delayed action and unrealized physical potential is bottling us up and out is popping some angry energy. It is still giving a one-way dristhi (gaze) to Venus, so we can see that is particularly heating up our relationships with others and our sense of happiness. This is particularly problematic as Venus is in Cancer and feeling a bit easy to break down. Venus in Cancer gives us the feeling that we are doing so much for others and they are not doing nearly as much for us. We feel sacrificial, even though it is us that is choosing to give. We also feel particularly emotional and can be empathic, so give yourself a rest. This is a time when holding your tongue might be best and simply asking for what you need is the best path towards peace.
Blessed New Moon!

The Moon and Sun will be across from each other in the sign of Aquarius in the star of Shatabishak on Tuesday, September 1st at 10:22 pm. This is a time to reflect upon the Moon cycle that began two weeks ago in sidereal Leo. At that time we were called into our power, specifically the power that comes from lineage and ancient wisdom and/or corruption. Now, we are looking at the reflections of power both within ourselves and outside in our societies and wondering how we can move forward better? Aquarius is where we focus on the collective, the social and how it can improve. It is the vision of the future, as imagined in our minds, held in humility and a desire to make things better for everyone, not just ourselves. This is an important reflection in this time, and even more potent as it falls in the star of 100 healers. It is said that remedies used when the Moon is in Shatabishak will have the power of one hundred healers, but illness that falls at this time won’t be able to be cured by even 100 healers. This is illness more than anything right now, is social sickness. A disease of hatred and anger at one another, as opposed to the powers that be. While ALL information is being manipulated and used for specific agendas, individuals are accessing it as it confirms their own biases and then feeling extreme anger to others who are accessing different information. This is of course, the ultimate manipulation. We are like dogs in a fight but the fight is fixed, and no matter who “wins", the people at the top will get what they want. How will we the people take back our power? By uniting. By looking at our own individual relationship to power, money and status and how we look at those with both more and less than ourselves. Do you have disgust towards the poor, and delusions of your own eventual grandeur? Or do you have disgust with the wealthy, and an innate block to creating your own prosperity? Either way, it is worth exploring and acting upon healing your relationship to wealth and society. AS I have always said, it is 100% impossible to cure society without curing ourselves first. It is 100% possible to cure society just by beginning with ourselves. There is nowhere else that our efforts will be put to better or more effective use! With Mars, Jupiter and the Sun all still in their own fire signs, we have enormous potential right now. Fires, storms and riots will be outside of us, continuing this month for sure, but we can individually use this fire for personal action in the direction that we want to imagine for our collective future.
