It has been an intense year. However, the energies have decelerated over the past week. It feels like we have been given an energetic pause to take a breath and take stock of our lives up until now. This week is perfect for setting intentions for the New Moon in Virgo, coming up next week, which ushers in a fresh wave of acceleration.
August 29, 2021: Sun at 6° Virgo in a t-square with the Nodes of the Moon (North Node at 6° Gemini & South Node at 6° Sagittarius). The Sun is illuminating the sacred temple of Virgo. We are learning to be more discerning and discriminating with our energies. We are purifying and cleansing ourselves, offering our lives up in sacred service to life. The Sun square the nodes gives us an opportunity to learn how to be more open, curious, and understanding, better able to juggle different perspectives and viewpoints, while letting go of judgements, dogmas, old beliefs, and outdated philosophies and viewpoints that don’t allow for us to expand, to gain wisdom, to find truths that stand up to personal experience.
August 30, 2021: Mercury enters Libra. Mercury will turn retrograde here in less than a month. So take note of what is coming up for you as Mercury sojourns through the sign of the other, of relationships, balance, harmony, peace, and equilibrium. Through being able to perceive and integrate perspectives and information that is different to what we already “know,” we are better able to learn and grow through relationships with others and the world around us. Libra, in its highest expression, can hold two opposing viewpoints as being equally valid and true, can maintain energetic equilibrium in a world of paradoxes.
September 3, 2021: Mars at 22° Virgo opposite Neptune at 22° Pisces. Our actions are being refined and purified in the fires of Virgo. Opposite Neptune in Pisces, we can see even more clearly how we can be of service to everyone. When you understand that life is always about relationships, and you enter into a sacred relationship with yourself and your own life, you will naturally serve others in the highest and best way.
