2018 Planetary activations Sept 05 and Sept 06
Mercury visits Virgo- Sept 05- 10.39 pm EDT to Sept 21- 11.39 pm EDT- Mercury was retrograde in Leo July 26 to Aug 19. It was about healing the heart and becoming Lion-Hearted. (I was reading “Mystery of the White Lions” during the retrograde). He cleared his retrograde shadow on Sept 02 and is now moving quite fast. His journey through Virgo offers us the opportunity to cross the Rainbow Bridge of Healing into Wholeness. And so the theme of healing continues.
Virgo gifts us with the energy of integrating mind (our thoughts) body (physical and emotional well-being) and spirit (authentic self). Virgo is also the ability to identify what is broken and bring it back into balance. Our Animal Totem guide is Brown Bear, introspection, healing, and The Healer (Northern Hemisphere). We are also guided by Cougar, spiritual power, and Wolf, the teacher who guides us through change (Southern Hemisphere). Because September has many transitional shifts Wolf is a powerful guide for us all.
The traditional planetary guide for this Mercury in Virgo journey is Mercury (evaluation and realignment). So his influence is strong. The key phrase for Virgo is “I analyze”. But the spiritual ruler of Virgo (for many astrologers) is Chiron, the healer and problem solver. Virgo is associated with alternative healing modalities. So the phrase “I heal” is the theme for this journey. Chiron is in Aries, the journey to our authentic selves. Tomorrow Sept 06 Saturn moves direct at 7.09 am EDT (more about that later). At 10.14 am the same day Mercury in Virgo (I analyze) will be inconjunct (change, release, letting go) Chiron Rx in Aries (I Heal). It sets the theme for the Saturn Direct journey and Mercury in Virgo. We want to let go of being directed by the ego-mind and allow our compassionate heart to guide us. Interesting that the Moon enters Leo (ego verses heart) at 9.54 am EDT just before the inconjunct.
The other planetary guide for this Mercury journey is the Asteroid Vesta. She is the keeper of the Divine Flame and guides us as we commit to being of spiritual service. In Sagittarius (spiritual vision) she is currently aligned with the Galactic Center of our Milky Way. This place of great power is the portal that opens to Cosmic Wisdom and Divine Guidance. All that is required is an open heart to receive the blessings. The message of this Mercury journey is to choose healing.
Saturn in Capricorn moves Direct- Sept 06- 7.09 am EDT- The planet that rules structure, form, and groundedness has been retrograde since April 17. It has been a looking within time to face our fears and discover our personal power in the world. But Saturn moving forward takes a while for us to feel that we can now move forward. His nature is slow and steady. As we mentioned the Moon enters Leo today (courage to be ourselves) and Mercury is inconjunct Chiron. Make a commitment to releasing limitation and restriction as your focus for the next few weeks. Our Animal Totem guide for the Northern Hemisphere is Snow Goose, following your dreams and visions. For the Southern Hemisphere your guide is Flicker Woodpecker, all healing love. Saturn supports us to strengthen our spiritual foundation so we can give our healing gifts to the world. He will meet with Vesta (commitment to our spiritual path) on Sept 27 at 02 degrees Capricorn (following our Soul Purpose path). Just remember Saturn requires patience. Things will eventually move forward when the timing is right. And remember Saturn really is a friend when we embrace his gifts.
