Virgo New Moon, September 8, 2010

The Heart is the storehouse of the human soul all its memories, deeds, words, emotions and longings. . . . The ma'at (truth) of the heart connects a man with his Osirian nature, with his continual regreening. It is that small light part of the self light as a germ of a seed that is the source of one's renewal. (Jean Houston)

The Virgo New Moon, exact on September 8th at 6:30 am EDT/ 3:30 am PDT, is interesting for a few reasons. As Stephanie Austin points out, it's the second of three Super Moons, meaning the Moon is very close to the Earth at this time, generating greater electromagnetic shifts within the Earth and within each of us. On top of that, this Virgo new Moon makes no aspects to the other planets, which is unusual. This means that it's free to work on its own, drawing us down like a seed to germinate within our souls a fresh sense of who we are. That's Virgo's mission to help us know ourselves and belong to ourselves.

Virgo heralds a quieter time of introversion after the bright, golden days of Leo. Characterized by the virtues of patience and purification, Virgo puts great attention on technique and methodology, which is why it rules alchemy and the process of transformation. Virgo's ruler, Mercury, becomes Hermes the focused mind who purifies the unconscious mind and creates psychic wholeness or the Philosopher's Stone.

Virgo also rules ritual magic and supposedly the Celtic druid Merlin was a Virgo, born on September 4th (my youngest son's birthday). But it is the goddess Isis, the Virgin bearing the sheaf of wheat, who symbolizes the best of Virgo. Isis is the mistress of magic and healing, and it is she, with her husband Osiris, who brought the gifts of civilization and healing to the ancient Egyptians. Most importantly, it is Isis as Mother that is the essence of Virgo. For it is only when we give birth to our wholeness that we can be of service to humanity. The Virgin bears the sheaf of nourishment and new life.

The Sabian symbol for the Sun and Moon at 16* Virgo is: Children crowd around the orangutan cage in the zoo. Orangutan is the Malay word for "person of the forest'. Orangutans very rarely leave the tree tops and feed on fruit and other food sources found in the top of the trees. Perhaps the lesson here is that we have to understand how we imprison our instincts and our wildness, along with our heart's desires. To live in the treetops symbolizes a return to our original selves, since trees are a symbol of life itself. Let your inner child set those orangutans free!

This new Moon in the mutable earth sign Virgo offers us a chance to take the essence of what we learned at the Pisces full Moon two weeks ago and begin the process of self-integration yet again. The Pisces full Moon illuminated the state of your trust in yourself and in life. It probably brought up some old limiting beliefs as well. Have you reverted to an old pattern of despair and depression or have you expanded your view of the possible? Either way, you now know what you have to face and deal with.

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.

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.
