The changing of the seasons is right around the corner with the Sun making its journey through the last decan of Virgo. The biggest news for the week is the New Moon in Virgo and Mercury stationing direct! This news will come to many with open arms as Mercury tends to confuse and alter the mind throughout its 3 weeks in retrograde motion. Mercury stations direct at 8° Virgo and went retrograde at 21°51’ Virgo. These degrees are important to note as they now represent the retrograde phase of Mercury which will present us with new information and wisdom. The Sun will travel over the 21° mark this week opening us up to new ways of being with the information that was learned while Mercury was rx. The last decan of Virgo is represented by the 10 of pentacles in the Tarot. This card illustrates the importance of legacy and how this plays a big role in a sense of accomplishment. All of the hard work and determination that we have participated in throughout the year now culminates in these last days of Virgo season. What is your legacy and what do you want to leave behind? Bit by bit we work towards the larger goal to achieve a sense of pride and accomplishment. Throughout the week, ask yourself what you would like for your legacy to be, and what you would like to leave humanity with. That is your greatest gift of service.
The New Moon this week features a grand earth trine between Jupiter in Taurus, Uranus in Taurus, and Pluto in Capricorn. This moon is going to be a very nurturing and fulfilling moon. Be open to reception and care, tuning in deeply to our and others’ needs. The comradery that the Virgo energy brings us is healing in and of itself but to add three behemoth planets in the mix is opening a gateway to understanding how important the industries of service are to humanity. The caretakers, the providers, the customer service experts, and the ones who take care of and help make any process run smoothly will be acknowledged! It is oftentimes the feminine roles that are underappreciated in modern society. But for this New Moon, we are able to deeply feel the presence of all of those who have helped us to heal ourselves and our communities. This offers up a good time to connect with our own mothers as well, understanding the huge sacrifice that one takes of their own bodily resources to provide for another through the gestation cycle. Virgo is along the axis of service with Pisces, and these two signs understand what real sacrifice means.
Venus square Jupiter
Venus makes a square to Jupiter this week and a square to Uranus next week. When it comes to the financial world, the two benefits squaring one another tend to put us in a place where we are realizing what we want more of – which can leave us feeling unsatisfied with what we have. The square energy pushes us and motivates us to make changes in our lives/relationships/dynamics in order to grow and evolve. The Venus and Jupiter square can leave us wanting more and more and more until we end up with a belly ache. Take care to notice where you are overcompensating for a general internal sense of lack. This can also be a good transit to make changes to your financial habits for the sake of eventually having more, it can be a necessary step to limit or restrict ourselves from frivolous or quick, immediate gratification.
