"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Virgo New Moon

  The Moon moved into Virgo at 5:33am and will join the Sun at 10:13am, beginning a lunar cycle (month-long) of adjusting. Why, adjusting...? Because the four main Moon phases beginning today involve the Moon being in the four Mutable signs of the zodiac: Virgo New Moon, Sagittarius First Quarter Moon, Pisces Full Moon and finally, a Gemini Last Quarter Moon. The Mutable signs use information and resources gathered to organize, adapt and share with others. "How do we make this work?"  "What do we have that we can use?" These are the types of questions we'll be asking ourselves for the next few weeks.

   The seeds to be planted at this New Moon involve how best to hone our skills, make our daily schedules work and take care of our bodies and minds. Virgo is a discerning sign and can help you set boundaries and limits adding to the organizational skills of all at this time of year, not just Virgo natives. De-cluttering and weeding out are keywords here. Be honest about the last time you looked at that newspaper or if it's time to deal with that unopened stack of mail and keep the shredder going... reuse or take it to recycling!!

    Another aspect of Virgo to pay attention to is what we put into our bodies in the way of food, vitamins and drugs. Is it time to cut out massive amounts of sugar in the form of carbohydrates, not just in our coffee? Maybe that bottle of Omega 3 fish oil is calling to you for a reason! Perhaps it's time to visit your health care practitioner and see if you can cut back on prescriptions or get help with nutritional needs, as well as cutting down alcohol intake.

   This is a day with a mixed bag of cosmic influences, some positive, some difficult. Mercury (communication) formed a helpful aspect with Saturn just a bit ago this morning, helping us to take care of important business, set up meetings, make phone calls and get our priorities straight! A tricky conjunction of action-packed Mars joining with stern Saturn makes for a somewhat off-putting afternoon midday. It's best to put one foot in front of the other and not push your own agenda. Joint projects can benefit under this aspect if both parties involved have a common goal and work together to achieve it.

    Remember, keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground~
