Thursday, SEPTEMBER 17
Mercury forms a square to Jupiter this morning, and we can feel rushed to make a decision when it’s better to wait. Our ideas are grand, but we may jump to conclusions or speak on a matter too soon.
At 7:00 AM EDT today, the New Moon occurs as the Moon aligns with the Sun in the sign of Virgo. A time of new beginnings, this New Moon presents an excellent opportunity for us to formulate some goals regarding “all things Virgo.” We’d do well to concentrate on new ways to get our day-to-day life organized.
The New Moon in Virgo is a good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Virgin, such as building our powers of healthy, constructive discrimination, beginning a new project that requires attention to details, starting a health regime, setting up specific routines that will help us manage our lives in constructive and mindful ways, and handling the finer details of our day-to-day life in an organized, step-by-step fashion so that we can free our minds of clutter.
Striving for perfection can be a wonderful challenge, as long as we don’t allow ourselves to become overly focused on flaws and feel guilty or stressed about them.
The Moon continues its transit of Virgo until 2:56 PM EDT when it enters relationship-focused, gracious Libra.
The Sun forms a trine to Saturn this afternoon, helping to stabilize and ground us, while also boosting self-discipline and moderation. We can enjoy a real sense of strength and pride in our ability to meet our responsibilities. We are more aware of our limitations–and willing to accept them. Enjoyment of our duties, work, or obligations can be in focus now. While this is a practical influence, it’s not the time to make big decisions since a New Moon occurs today, and we’re symbolically in the dark.
The void Moon occurs from 7:42 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a trine to Saturn), until the Moon enters Libra at 2:56 PM EDT.
