Virgo New Moon

September 18, 2009

Focus. Simplify. Consolidate. If you have ever stuffed a backpack or a suitcase, you know the Virgo process of discerning what is most useful and necessary. If you have ever spent time in the desert, you learned about Saturn and how to thrive in challenging circumstances. This New Moon reminds us that we are in a desert time, when we must fully utilize what we have and eliminate what is not essential.

Stephanie Austin, Mountain Astrologer, Aug/Sept 2009

When I read Stephanie's new Moon forecast, I was immediately caught by her reference to 'living in the desert'. I have been living in the desert for about 3 years now and I feel the truth of her statement in my own life. So, I love the metaphor that we are all going through our desert time. As a 12th house Taurus -- building psychic structures for the collective unconscious to work through - perhaps I've been preparing the way for the rest of you to accommodate yourselves to the desert climate!

This Virgo New Moon will manifest the energies of the 3rd Uranus/Saturn opposition that occurs on Tuesday, September 15th. A new Moon is a seed time, and this third opposition is the balance point of the five oppositions occurring between November 4, 2008 (US Election Day) and July 26, 2010. Uranus in Pisces, as I stated in my Pisces/Virgo Full Moon newsletter, opens us to a vision of Love and Connectivity, and therefore opens us to our Creative Imagination and inventiveness. These energies are opening us to the changes we need to make in our personal lives as well as in our collective life. And the forces of inertia are trying to stop that change. This is our challenge. To overcome inertia, get out of our own way, and evolve into the next stage of our growth as human beings.

With our Virgo planets -- Pallas, Saturn, Moon, Sun and Mercury retrograde -- energizing us to focus, simplify and consolidate, the new visionary seeds sprung from Uranus' potent archetypal purpose, added to Juno's energy of sacred partnership, can create change in our personal as well as our collective lives. It really is up to us how the next few years go. (See below for a short introduction to what's going on in 2012.)

With these 5 planets in Virgo within 6 degrees of each other, Virgo's ability to purify, organize, and synthesize energy will be highlighted. Pallas in Virgo gives us the ability to discriminate, to see with simplicity what needs to be done. The Sun and Moon in Virgo energize us to plant seeds that synthesize all our personal qualities into an integrated whole which expresses our true Self. Virgo is the sign of the Virgin, the one who belongs to Herself. Virgo is the energy that says, Know Thyself! Because once Libra arrives, we have to bring our talents to the world.

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
