Summer Eclipse Season 2018 pretty much ends on Sunday September 9, at the New Moon in Virgo at 2:01 PM EDT.
It was one super intense Eclipse Season ride with 3 eclipses and both Mercury and Mars Retrograde.
Transformation was deeply experienced by many. Old ways of relating and thinking were questioned. Awakening energies were strong, taking people outside old boxes in their minds and lives.
Any shakeups of your life or thinking were meant to take you out of the status quo, same-old habits that kept you cruising in your stuck-ness.
We should be over the hump of any tentativeness this week, and ready to take on whatever comes our way now in our New Chapter of life.
There is no returning to the old normal anymore, instead we are moving further forward toward a new normal. Right now, however, many are “in between”.
Even if outer circumstances have hardly changed in our personal lives, nevertheless there is a feeling of being in a different zone inside ourselves. And intuitively there is a knowing of much change on the way.
Eclipse Season and the Retrogrades shook us up, now we get ready for the changes that result from that time period.
And this New Moon in Virgo represents our movement forward after Eclipse Season. Neptune is opposite that New Moon in Virgo, so movement forward is slow, slowed down by a need to surrender to unseen forces and to let go of needs to control or keep with a strict agenda.
Virgo finds “what’s wrong with this picture”, zeros in on what is not right or perfect or in order, and then looks for the remedies.
Virgo is directed to the physical world as it is an earth sign, so what it senses is out of order is usually our physical possessions, our bodies, our equipment, our houses, or our physical environment.
Virgo seeks to mend, fix, doctor, heal, put together, maintain, order, realign, and/or make more efficient in our physical world. It feels its purpose when it is humbly of service to others or a cause.
Neptune however trusts in the deep process of soul, and allows for magic to help find the way. It is connected more to soul than physical, so this New Moon helps us to bring together body and soul, logic and imagination.
For many now, before they are ready to truly leap on the train of fast forward movement, they need to get right with some things in their life.
In our global world and here in America, it is obvious that we are in a new zone. The Trump factor has shown us even more during the passing Eclipse Season that we cannot go back “home” again.
We must develop a new sense of what is right for us, what is home base inside us.
The world is looking so much different than before, and soon events will unfold that show us how far from our old “home” we have traveled.
We are in a new zone, a new chapter, a new era, a new world. And as ugly as it looks and feels sometimes, it has awakened us, and helped us to leave an old paradigm that was dying long before Trump came to town.
Trump World has been showing us the underbelly of the old paradigm. It is like how the mafia has always shown us the dark side of American values.
And now we are seeing how messed up we have collectively become because of our inner demons of fame, wealth, status, bigotry, narcissism, revenge, and a sense of privilege and superiority.
Trump World brings our demons to the surface. We are the ones who must decide how we handle these American shadows.
If we each fight our demons with demonic hatreds and bigotries of our own, we perpetuate that which we say we want to rid ourselves of.
Trump World will pass, but if its existence makes us more cynical, hateful, and hopeless, we have enabled it to win over our hearts and souls.
So we need to dig deep to find the better angels of our country’s and our own values. And with those as our foundation, we can create a New World, New Paradigm and New Age.
And for now this week, we move forward with Virgo values in mind.
Virgo has the Virgin as its symbol. That Virgin represents purity and perfection, as both we humans and our Earth started out.
And then after we left our “Garden of Eden” innocence, we decided to see the world “out there” for ourselves. And we then got muddied and our Earth has since been soiled with impurities we have given it.
Now we must reach for the Sky with our feet on the Earth, in order to reclaim the natural pure values from our Universe and Earth.
Yet also with the street-smart wisdoms we have gained from our experience on the streets of our human experience, we can help those who have lost their way from “home”.
As we gather our lost souls, return to our “better angel” values including the Universe’s pillars of Love and Truth, we come together to heal our unified human family on our beautiful and sacred planet Earth.
So use the Virgo energies now to see what is wrong, and then purify, heal, mend and fix what has been broken in your own life.
That New Moon in Virgo on September 9 is accompanied by Venus going into Scorpio that day also.
So Venus leaves the balanced and civilized Libra, and enters the Scorpio world of primal passions and deep experience.
So if your relationships have gone on cruise-control, now with Venus in Scorpio you will begin to “get down” into what is real and what needs to be transformed in those relationships.
Venus will be in Scorpio for an extended period of time as it will go retrograde on October 5, go retro through the end of Libra again, then back again into Scorpio until early in 2019. So deep passionate relating is in the stars for us for awhile.
Old patterns that keep us apart from intimacy will seek to be transformed. Either new patterns or new relationships are in the near future.
Also this week, there will be more getting down into the “nitty gritty” as the Sun in Virgo makes aspects to Jupiter in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn. And Jupiter in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn exactly sextile one another mid-week.
There is no escape this week from what is real and deeply meaningful.
Venus, newly in Scorpio, makes an opposition to Uranus in Taurus on Wednesday the 12th, and that will mean wake up time for relationships this week.
And also with the Moon in Scorpio most of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week, it seems that much will be uncovered this week. And in that process deeper issues will be processed by ourselves and in our relationships.
Issues and potential conflicts in the greater world that have been building, will tend to be brought to a head this week, and it could get ugly.
This is especially true for the Middle East and Trump World.
And in that outer world, but also in our personal lives, much more is coming out, coming to a head, and then released and purged.
Do your best this week, with the prevailing energies, to keep things simple and real. Escapism will not work well this week.
Till next week,
