Planetary Alchemy: Astrology News by Sarolta

September 20th, 2017 (1:30 am EDT at 27 deg 27’)

This New Moon in the sign of Virgo calls us to do the deep, therapeutic work of healing the body, mind, and spirit. It is time to go to the depths: to access the unconscious and look deeply into our hearts. It is the season where we can lovingly acknowledge our faults, as well as our virtues. What part of your life needs focused attention now? 

With all FIVE of the personal planets in Virgo (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars), we have a rare opportunity to clear out the muck, and get real with ourselves about what is truly keeping us from expressing our most potent, authentic selves. 

Chiron, The Wounded Healer, is in the sign of Pisces, the sign that is opposite the Virgo planets highlighted on this new moon. 

Chiron in Pisces calls us to our source, and whispers in symbols of a oneness we can only feel through images, sound, or poetry. Our dreams hold the clue to what separates us from our knowing. 

The dance between the moon and Chiron pulls us to connect our feelings and desires to our deepest subconscious, helping us unify the will, in order to consciously channel our higher selves. 

A strong energy for discipline and self-reflection aids us in our quest, allowing us to break free of past illusions and addictions (Saturn in Sagittarius squaring the opposition between the moon and Chiron). 

We cannot be authentic if we deny our darker impulses. These “shadow” desires will run the show if we don’t make peace. This new moon period brings a rare opportunity to accelerate our healing through our therapeutic practices; meditation, journaling, dreamwork, yoga and energy healing are especially potent and transformational at this time. 

New Moon Magic

The New Moon is the time to begin new projects;  whatever house it transits in the birth chart will be the prominent theme for the month. Usually, the twelve houses are "visited" by the New Moon around the same time each year, and when the New Moon transits the First House, it signifies the querent’s Lunar New Year, and the beginning of a new cycle. 

This marks the Lunar New Year for the sign of Virgo. 

The New Moon in Virgo represents a good time to focus on health, diet, and overall well-being. What is truly important now to your true sense of who you are? Virgo is also a sign of discernment, and many can now begin projects having to do with improving your habits for the better. A great time to begin a diet or other health-enhancing practices.
