We are waning to the New Moon on Monday in the sign of Virgo. It will take place in the nakshatra Chitra, which straddles both Virgo and Libra, indicating that this cycle will also have some qualities of Libra, as the Sun will move into the sign of the Balanced Scale only 5 days later. Chitra means "The Brilliant" or "Shining" like a gem, or a pearl, and indicates an energy of being seen and having a quality of attraction. It is ruled by the Divine Architect, Vishvakarma who created the planets when he sawed off some the Sun's rays so his daughter Sanjana ,"Consciousness"who was the Sun's wife could be near her hot husband. Vishnu's discus was also formed from these bits of Sun. Taking the detail-oriented, hands-on and intelligent energy of Virgo and bringing it together with the artistic and beautiful Venusian sign of Libra creates an unmatched potential for creating beautiful things and standing out in the crowd. Chitra is also ruled by Mars, giving us the pro-active and impassioned drive to get things done. Now is the time to Shine Brightly, dear ones.In addition to the Sun and Moon, we also have Rahu, the energetic North node of the Moon and Mercury in Virgo, as we've had since the end of August, bringing us Clear Communication and Discrimination from Mercury, and a more Obsessive energy from Rahu. Rahu can give us much Insight from other states of consciousness if we are tuned in, and much Chaos and Confusion if we are not. Mercury just went direct on the 9th and while he was Retrograde we hopefully learned by Listening and Integrating the information we were receiving, so that we could have a better understanding of what needs to be done in order to keep our lives moving forward in the direction that best serves our Highest Potential. Now, that Mercury is direct, you might find better ease in your efforts to give and receive information, especially with technology, but be careful of being too blunt, critical or direct in your communication with others.
We have Venus, Mars and Jupiter in Leo, all being aspected by Saturn, especially Venus. They are in a tight, separating aspect, which will be bringing both the Pressure and Fear away from our relationships with others...and the Commitment and Hard Work as well. With Venus in Leo, we are all feeling more like the Kings and Queens in our relations and might be trying to Lead and Inspire our partners or other people we affect and are affected by. We must remember other people have their own dharma and trajectory as well, and might not always want to do what we want them to. Jupiter and Mars are quite close in the sky now, within 1 degree and with this we might be feeling very inspired to Act on our Highest Beliefs and Ideals these days. There is also potential for some fiery discord over these beliefs. If we did a good job listening and integrating while Mercury was Retrograde, we have a lot of potential right now to really create the Kingdom we want within ourselves, as well as spreading our beliefs, ideals, and creations and to others. If you are an artist, teacher or public figure right now this is the time to motivate, inspire and bring forth your shining Self:-)
As always, the New Moon is a time when our Mind is moving to dark and we move away from our emotions and mental interplay with others to Connect with our Soul Power. For today, Sunday, October 11th, into Monday at 2:07pm Hawaii Time (-10 GMT) engage in activities that are ceremonious and meditative....preparing the garden to plant new seeds, communing with Nature both outside and within yourself, playing music or chanting are all beautiful options to help you reset your emotions and thoughts to align for this cycle's Shining opportunities and Magnetic potential.
