Goddess of pleasure, Venus, enters the mercurial maze of Virgo, on September 20, almost simultaneously as this year’s Virgo New Moon. Love, values and relationships become subjected to that same process of scrupulous refinement we are starting under this earthy, discreet lunation; if we’re going to become the best version of ourselves, we need to crank up our standards and allow them to reflect our sense of self-worth, as well.

New Moon in Virgo, September 20, 2017 – Little Victories

There is no resurrection without reconstruction. No process of (re)birth without the meticulous miracle of embryogenesis. No evolution without improvement. No Spring rejuvenation without the diligent and careful process of harvesting and gathering Nature’s bounty, represented by Autumn.
We need to be prepared for the long winter nights before we experience efflorescence and renewal.
Virgo might be the sign of minutiae, but grandiose scenarios are often made out of tiny, nearly invisible details. The New Moon arriving on September 20, 2017, at 27 degrees and 27 minutes of Virgo, allows us to fill the holes in our big picture, so that we may bring it into form.

Water is pervasive, life-sustaining.
About 70 percent of the human body is made up of water, and more than 70 percent of Earth is covered in it. Not only does water creates an environment that sustains and nurtures life on Earth; its chemical and physical properties are also essential to human survival, since none of our basic physical functions, such as breathing or digestion, could take place without water.

Mercury‘s upcoming direct station, happening on September 5, at 28 degrees Leo, will unveil the most fascinating, esoteric facets of the energy of this planet: in resuming direct motion on the exact degree of August 2017’s Solar Eclipse, the scheming, crafty trickster transforms into the archetype of the messenger, the psychopomp, he who guides the Souls and delivers the messages from the Gods.

The seismic shifts unleashed in our lives by the two August eclipses, coupled with the complex, slippery Rx cycle of Mercury (ending with the direct station on this very same day), might have left us viscerally craving clarity, hungry for lucidity, yearning for transparency. So many tumultuous emotions that shook us to the very core, so much information to review, so many facts to process, so much need to sort it all out and get back on track.
