The Cosmic Story: Virgo New Moon, September 15-16, 2012:

Healing, Service and Our Authentic Talents

 

This above all -- to thine own Self be true.

And it must follow, as the night the day

Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Hamlet, William Shakespeare

   This month's new Moon in Virgo initiates another few weeks of intense change.   So ready or not, here it comes!  

   On September 17th, Pluto turns to direct motion, intensifying its transformative energy.   Pluto, the planet of evolution, retrograde since April 10th, is now ready to continue transforming our lives and our world.    Then on September 19th, Pluto forms its second square to Uranus, marking another turning point in our collective evolution out of patriarchy and into true citizenship and grown-up responsibility.

   This Virgo new Moon is a perfect time to check in with yourself to see how far you've come in your journey of self-knowledge and self-actualization.     

   Virgo's lessons and initiation involved alchemy, the union of opposing energies and the transformation of those energies through self-knowledge into a new sense of wholeness and Self-consciousness.    Virgo is the sign where we work to perfect ourselves, not by being perfect but by coming to understand how we see ourselves, what we value, how we process life, what our emotional body feels like and where our creative impulse lies. We weave ourselves together in Virgo, discerning what is us and what is not us.

   Virgo is "ruled' or inspired by Mercury as the healing energy of the Mind.   In Virgo, a more grounded Mercury than in Gemini, known variously as Hermes Trismegisthus, the EgyptianThoth, the alchemical Mercurius.   His virtues are "patience, purification and perfection, great technique, mastery and humility.'1 Virgo works hard at perfecting her craft, in humble service to the work itself.   To do this, Virgo must balance her body, mind and spirit.   Earthy Virgo wants to make sure the body is given its due or else it becomes unhealthy.   And we need a healthy body now, because change is hard work, especially on the nervous system.

   Mercury's energies unite with this new Moon, emphasizing the ability of the Mind to encompass new insights about ourselves and our world.   And on September 20th, Mercury will form what we call a T-Square with Uranus and Pluto, opening the Mind to accept our responsibility for transforming our own life and our world.
