9th September 2018: New Moon in Virgo

A New Dawn

The Moon is new at 17 degrees of Virgo on 9th September at 6:03 pm UT. If you’ve felt confused in recent days (Neptune has been opposing the Sun so it’s quite likely!), this Moon sets out a clearer path ahead which starts right where we are, not in some distant place we think we should be by now! Delusions or self-deceptions are cast aside by this moon. We can see ourselves as we truly are and in doing so identify what’s needed to address challenges and capitalise on blessings.

After several months of what many have experienced as blockages and obstacles, this moon triggers progress. If frustrations have been rife, you’ve felt like you were chasing your tail and no matter what you did nothing seemed to ‘stick’, things should start looking up! With Mars & Saturn now moving forward again, and Pluto following suit by the end of September, the emphasis is shifting from inner change to outer effort and the coming weeks will bring opportunities to translate self-knowledge and fresh perspectives into pragmatic action and practical renewal.

By way of support, Saturn continues to square Chiron until the end of September, providing the courage to believe that change is possible even in the face of all evidence to the contrary! It may not be the precise change we want, or the perfect solution, but most situations can bear a few ‘tweaks’ here and there to introduce a fresh energy or new flavour to well established circumstances. Even rearranging the furniture or a thorough spring-clean can shift our state and renew our outlook. The abiding thrust of life is always towards change. Nothing in nature stays the same, and neither do we. Stagnant thoughts, feelings and circumstances are contrary to life’s natural flow and much can be done to get them moving again. Chiron in Aries spurs us on to do exactly that, reminding us that if we can change nothing else we can change our attitude, how we think and where we invest our energy. Saturn in Capricorn affirms this is the most potent change of all, for in changing ourselves we can change our entire life without apparently changing a thing. A new dawn may well rise on the same old place, but the dawn is no less new…

Against that backdrop, this new moon provides a stabilising force, grounding us in the restorative power of connecting consciously with our own life and taking responsibility for what we find there. This is not an act of self-blame or denial of the many forces which impact our world, but of power that says ‘wherever I am I can use this situation to wake up’. This may mean having the guts to make a big change or cultivating acceptance; offering an apology or pointing the finger to expose the truth; speaking our mind or holding our tongue. We usually know what we need to do, but whether we’ll do it is up for debate! Fear may hold us back, or circumstance. Conditioning or lack of collateral. This moon makes space to look with clarity upon our life to see where and how we need to shake ourselves awake. If we then lapse back into blaming everything else for the sorry state of affairs, that’s a choice too. We cannot help but take charge of our future, the issue is always how we do it and why…
