For the week of September 7th thru the 14th, be sure to read your Rising Sign as well:
One way Aries can use this New Moon is to focus on decreasing stress and increasing wellness by establishing health-promoting routines and reassessing the environment in your personal and work life. What would it mean for you to lead a healthier, less stressful lifestyle? If boundaries have recently become eroded, you can feel confident to take more control over your work schedule and/or routines, so that you can establish better and healthier routines. Your ruling planet, Mars, is re-entering Aquarius on Monday with mixed blessings. There is a raucous rebellious element to Mars in Aquarius, that is anxious to promote positive changes, and embark on progressive initiatives. However, once Mars comes back to Aquarius this week, it also re-engages the unpredictable Mars/Uranus square, which can bring all sorts of of unexpected twists and turns. In order to make the most of this volatile weather is recognizing those things over which you do have control, and those you simply don’t.
Your ruler Venus enters Scorpio this week, as it engages in an edgy and contentious t-square with volatile Mars and Uranus. See any intense encounters with others as an opportunity to transform your perspective and gain some sort of perspective. Sudden events could catch you off guard, but they could also present you with the opportunity to make long overdue changes. There is a lot of courage here that many might not expect from you or even see coming. It may be that it is time for you to take a stand. Just do so carefully. Especially if it may compromise your reputation. Things are a little edgy this coming week. Trying to create time for loved ones and for the things you love is essential, not only this week, but making it something of a priority going forward. There is something to be said about creating more health ad less stress in you live by allowing time for joy, and to do the things you love, with the ones you love.
The weekend begins with a stabilizing and illuminating Grand Trine, which can also help to set the tone for the upcoming New Moon. What you learn this week might shift some of your plans, but in a way that could prove to be fortuitous. Now that your ruler Mercury and Saturn are finally moving forward again, obstacles standing in the way of progress may begin to fall away, allowing you to see a plan gradually unfolding before you. With both the Grand Trine, and the New Moon, there are opportunities here to improve the home or living space. Doing so can also indirectly impact on your health and general well being. This could include doing things like adjusting your daily routine in order to allow more time home with your family, or doing some sort of deep cleaning or decluttering in order to create a more stress free environment. A Virgo Moon for Gemini can also be about improving relations with family members, promoting a more emotionally supportive environment.
New Moons give us opportunities to set commitments and begin new initiatives. This is a good Moon for setting appropriate boundaries, and taking greater control over your own mental health and well-being. This will be welcome especially if you’ve been feeling mentally scattered. The aim is for balance, health and serenity of mind, through whatever method works best for you. This Moon could also be an opportunity to develop a new skill, or perfect one you already have. Thinking about taking a class? Or finding the right book? Getting the information that you need in order to fulfill some vision that you’ve been working on? Now that Saturn is finally moving forward again, perhaps we can all proceed with plans, as necessary information is being revealed.
Whatever doubts, confusion, or uneasiness that may be preceding the upcoming New Moon, recognize that although you may not have all the information you need, that you will soon have a clearer picture moving ahead. In some way you are being asked to go with faith, trusting in your own good judgment. It could be that changes that you’ve been wanting to make may soon begin to fall into place. What previously seemed insurmountable, may finally begin to look possible. Just go with a little caution, as there could be a few unexpected twists and turns this week. This Moon might have you asking questions such as, What useful skills do I need to perfect in order to be more valuable in the eyes of others? What services can I offer to be of the greatest benefit to others? And certainly do not underestimate the skills and talents you already have! Once you have all the facts and information you need, see if you can create a financial plan for the future that you know you can live with.
The next few days can prove to be something of a revelation, as information being revealed can be instrumental in clarifying a path that is about to unfold. There is a New Moon on Sunday in the sign of Virgo. This Moon will be especially strong to all Virgos, but especially those Virgos born between September 6th and 12th, or who have 14-20º Virgo Rising. New Moons are about new beginnings, and having the New Moon in your sign is an opportunity for you to create a whole new beginning that could literally transform your life in some significant way. It may very well be that you are ready for some sort of personal change in your life. It could also be that some sort of event rekindles an old hobby that used to bring you such great pleasure, or even a new line of work. Virgo can be a subtle sign, but the decisions made and beginnings initiated through the window of the New Moon can have far-reaching effects for months to come.
Your ruling planet Venus enters Scorpio on Sunday, drawing you into a rather contentious situation that may find Libra adjusting and readjusting to unforeseen and sudden shifts over the next week. There may be some fears about loss arising. Good to be clear about those things that you do have control over, and those that you simply do not, no matter how strongly you may want it to be otherwise. Flexibility, and the willingness to just let some things go, will be key for the week. If you have been feeling stressed or stretched in any way, give yourself permission to create time and promote greater serenity this week. Initiatives you create now can have long term consequences, therefore think about creating time for a retreat, meditation or creating time for solitude in order to promote mental health and wellness, which is key for the upcoming weeks. Don’t be surprised if you are called on to serve in some capacity, either for something that you perceive to be a higher cause, or for the general greater good.
There is a glorious story that is trying to unfold. Some sort of Vision for the future has been trying to make itself known in your life, but with all of the retrogrades, and various twists and turns, you’ve been compelled to wait. Well now it is making itself known. The New Moon on Sunday is trying to reveal something relevant and important about what that Vision is, and how it is going to be impacting your life going forward. The New Moon in Virgo is your wishing Moon, therefore think in terms of what the next steps may be in order to make that Vision a closer reality. This can be a powerful and positive time to plant seeds of intention: therefore see what seeds, hopes and wishes you would like to see reach fruition in the foreseeable future. There could also be a few changes, twists and turns over the next few weeks. It would probably be a good idea for many to remain both vigilant and flexible for any changes that may be necessary. There’s no telling what may come to light with the kind of weather we will be having. Best to bring some foul weather gear along for the ride.
There is a bigger story that is trying to unfold over the weeks ahead, that is just beginning to finally make itself known. It has been lingering on the back burner for some time now, but it is finally time to get down to the business of making this story a closer reality. This can include a successful conclusion, or finally tying up the loose ends of an event that spanned the past 12 years, and can possibly give birth to brighter and better plans to come. The New Moon on Sunday is very much about looking to the future and finally having a plan in place that you know you can live with. A change at work, or a commitment to a new initiative in your life that has an impact on your reputation or role in the community can be both transformative and exciting, with a lot of potential for growth in the future.
Saturn stations can be difficult when they occur, but they can also afford the opportunity to be able to create a plan for the future. There is also something wonderfully enlightening about the Saturn station this year that allows many to be able to make innovations and changes in ways that they might not have thought possible. A Grand Trine with the planet Mercury this weekend could be quite illuminating in this regard early on in the week. In some way the New Moon on Sunday could also prove to be something of an inspiration. It does so by opening your mind to broader possibilities and opportunities. letting you know that there is a whole world waiting for you, if and when you are ready. It’s just a matter fo time and preparation. The New Moon in Virgo is about making a new start. For Capricorn this could indeed be the first step to creating a practical and progressive plan for the future.
There is quite a bit unfolding this week. A Grand Trine illuminates over the next few days alternatives and innovations that could help you to create a plan moving forward. This is further highlighted by the New Moon on Sunday, which for Aquarius could mark some sort of transitions, change or renewal. This New Moon could very well have something to do with rehabilitation, rebuilding, or making some sort of positive change that hints at growth and purification. Therefore make the commitment in the wake of this New Moon to make the intention to begin a new path towards heath and renewal. The week could be enlightening in other more unexpected ways as well. The planet Mars will re-enter Aquarius right after the New Moon, re-engaging the Mars/Uranus square later on in the month. This could bring a few twists and turns moving forward and maybe even a few shocks as well. Go with caution over the next few weeks. Seatbelts may be required.
The issue leading up to the New Moon is that on the one hand, you may receive some enlightening information that could prove to be very useful. On the other hand, it could also feel like you are not being shown the full picture: that some things are still unclear and undecided. However, once the New Moon kicks into gear on the 9th, there should be enough information to be able to follow through with plans and get things rolling. You may yet need to do so without knowing how things are going to end up. There are those times in life when we sometimes just have to go on faith, because there is no other way to go but forward. Trust that some larger vision for the future is about to unfold. And where it brings you could literally transform your life as well as your loved ones, in some significant and worthwhile way.
