VIRGO – I Be / I Analyse
Artist ©Josephine Wall
Earthy, grounded, intelligent, common sense Virgo is a stickler for details. They will always read the small print before making a decision (and now we have another Mercury retrograde they will be triple checking!). Ah decisions, Virgos want all the information available before even thinking about making a decision. Sometimes this gives them ‘analysis paralysis’, when their brain is so full of data that they are too ‘full’ or confused to make their decision.
Virgos are practical and dependable. Work-wise Virgos like structured organizations such as the health service (they are also nurturers and empathic), the armed forces, universities etc., (where they can use their analytical skills in research, detailed design, computing etc). They love bureaucracy and excel at making sense of it.
Virgo’s a loyal, reliable friend who is great in a crisis. They just need to ensure that they are not being used or treated like a doormat. Virgos are their own worst critics, they never feel they are good enough or have done things well enough. Enough already! This Full Moon lets you know that you are enough; in fact more than enough, you are fabulous! So celebrate yourself instead of beating yourself up over little things that in the scheme of things won’t stop the world turning. You have a mission Virgo, so raise your head, look up and aim for the bigger picture.
SATURN – Taskmaster and loving Cosmic Teacher Saturn moves from Scorpio (yaay!) into Sagittarius on 17th September and will remain there until Winter Solstice, Dec 21st 2017. His presence in Sag will really push us all into living, speaking and being our Truth.
This is a great article regarding how Saturn in Sagittarius will affect us all, it’s worth reading:
MERCURY – Mercury retrograde really kicks in on Sept 17th (although the shadow phase has already begun) and will go on until mid October 2015.
Sagittarians take note – Taskmaster Saturn moves into your sign at exactly the same time that communication expert Mercury decides to go backwards. You are going to have to really think before you speak or act until this Mercury retrograde period ends.
I actually quite enjoy Mercury retrograde periods, they give me time to slow down and catch up with outstanding tasks. I’m not so keen on the communication snafus (when people look at you like you are speaking in an alien tongue or take instant offence at what you say) or the computer snafus that tend to happen. However all in all, it’s a great opportunity to slow down and fix what needs fixing, re-work, re-think, re-organize, realise, re-veal, reflect, return, re-word and re-phrase (before hitting send!), renewal, reconciliation, removal, revamp and renovate – ourselves as well as our living spaces, but most of all re-lax!
ECLIPSE SEASON opens with today’s New Moon partial Solar Eclipse in Virgo. Practical Virgo reminds us that summer is over and the new term has started, so it’s time to get our thoughts, lives and work organized now and knuckle down.
Eclipses always bring about change (whether we want that change or not). Eclipses will shake up what needs shaking up in order to bring about the much-needed change. It can be scary even shocking sometimes, you can at times get a real curveball that knocks you sideways. Or it can be subtler; it all depends on what you most need at this stage of your life. The good news is that whatever happens there is something good and pretty darn wonderful that will come out of it. By the end of the Eclipse Season it will all make sense.
Today’s Eclipse opens the Eclipse window on your life. Prepare for the unexpected, as one door closes another will open, Eclipses are all about endings/beginnings, closings/openings etc. Whatever happens Eclipses always move us forward and sometimes at a rapid pace.

I just took a look at mine, and got a jolt, as I had made a small note of something an astrologer had once said to me many moons ago “It’s time to come out of the eccentric hermit into the individual healer.” Ouch. I actually like being an ‘eccentric hermit’ / wacky witch! However I have been hearing the call and getting the nudge from Spirit that I am needed out in the world a whole lot more and it’s time to stop hiding myself away. It’s time to do more healing and teaching (and writing) again. I find this quite scary, I am great behind the scenes but not so good being at the front / centre stage. I guess that is my lesson to learn during this Eclipse season. What is your lesson to learn?
Interestingly this New Moon Eclipse in Virgo opposes Chiron (the planet of the wounded healer), which is in emotional, psychic, Pisces. This Eclipse has a strong healing emphasis particularly on the Spiritual and etheric levels.
- What needs to be healed within and without?
- What practical steps can you take towards that?
Virgo brings us practical energy to help us find the type of healing that is right for us, right now. And if I can help you with anything, please let me know.
Health is the only true wealth, for success is useless if we are not healthy enough to enjoy it.
NEW MOON in VIRGO
This lovely New Moon is supported with other auspicious planetary energy. Therefore, it is perfect for creating a new New Moon Wish List.
Virgo is service oriented:
- How are you being of service to your community/the world?
- Whom do you serve? And is that still working for you?
- Are you still procrastinating or allowing distractions?
- Are you speaking lovingly and kindly of others?
- Are you surrounded by others who speak lovingly and kindly
- Are you stuck in your own rigid beliefs?
- Are you too hung up on the nitty gritty and failing to see
the bigger picture?
- Do you let busyness keep you from beingness?
- Have you let your habits keep you a slave?
This New Moon Eclipse offers us a fresh start in all areas of our lives, and we have practical support from Virgo enabling us to put plans in place to achieve this. Now it is time to take those big dreams Leo recently fired us up about, and start taking the practical steps to achieve them. Dreams without action are illusion and never manifest. However when you start taking action, the Universe believes that you are serious and assists with synchronicities and other delights to help you along your way.
To know how this Eclipse may affect you, here’s an insight for your Sun Sign by the wonderful Chani Nicolas (www.ChaniNicolas.com):
ARIES / Aries rising
Sometimes we need a little support. We all need help to keep the ship steady and streamlined. Find solutions to the chores you have that have you running around wasting energy you don’t have to give them. Your health won’t be as happy if you haven’t got the support. Your work won’t be as prosperous if you are stuck doing every last detail. You might miss the opportunities you should take up because you’ll be too spent to see them for what they are. And there are opportunities especially your work. Make room for more magic.
TAURUS / Taurus rising
This weekend’s solar eclipse initiates you into a time when your own personal creative energy is emerging in ways you cannot and should not control. Eclipses tend to bring people, opportunities and situations abruptly into, and out of, our lives. You are being asked to thoughtfully, considerably and consciously be a part of this process. Remember that this eclipse might bring in a new project or love but it might also end one. Trust what you reap.
GEMINI / Gemini rising
There are new ways to grow the base of your life, but if the renovations are done in haste, all this expansion will go to waste. This week’s eclipse is signaling a time of inner excavations done in detail. It may be supportive to look to your relationships with your parents. What are the issues that you are currently working on in your relationships with them. Remember our folks don’t have to be alive, in contact with us or even known to us for us to be working out our issues with them.
CANCER / Cancer rising
Saturday’s eclipse is sure to loosen the lid on whatever it is you’ve tried to keep to yourself. Try not to hold back your best. Try to remember that the more you give it, the more comes. Try to think of your truth (as you know it thus far) as just the tip of the iceberg as it pertains to your entirety. There is so much more to you than you’ve let yourself know. Sharing some of it with us opens you up to understanding greater depths of yourself and can show you the staggering heights you can soar to.
LEO / Leo rising
It’s all about the fact that while this may not be the best month to see the financial results, it’s a fantastic time to do all of the studying, learning and compiling of data that you need in order to set yourself up to gain in the long run. It’s OK to go your own way as it pertains to your overall drive. Just notice who is on the road with you and how their travels might also support your own.
VIRGO / Virgo rising
Eclipses can land us in front of one-of-a-kind opportunities. Eclipses are relentless in their effect on you. All you can do is your best to hang on for the ride. It’s hard to say where exactly you’ll end up. It might not be where you wanted, thought or previously held as a possibility. I can tell you that your ability to believe in, trust and follow your instincts, your gut and your intuition is worth more than gold. You are your best bet.
LIBRA / Libra rising
This Eclipse it’s important to keep in mind a couple of things: What we try to reject about ourselves, the feelings, the facts, the past mistakes and the parts of ourselves that are socially unacceptable, get put somewhere. They get thrown in the 12th house (self/seclusion/need for retreat), this is where the eclipse will take place for you.
SCORPIO / Scorpio rising
Whatever you have accomplished in the past couple of years will be with you for a lifetime, because it was hard won. This weekend’s eclipse opens up your 11th house of friends, fortune and the kind of social movements that might inspire a generation. Notice who you are being drawn to. Notice who you are wanting to form committed partnerships with. Notice who enters your life, flowers in one hand, detailed designs for structural equality in the other. There’s a great amount of fortune wanting to come to you through your crew. There could be a possibility for you to stand out in the crowd and because of that possible partnerships might emerge.
SAGITTARIUS / Sagittarius rising
This weekend’s eclipse is an opening for you. This opening is in your 10th house of career, reputation and professional life. There could be a unique and unforeseen opportunity for you. There could be help from someone who wants to partner with you. There could be conditions that you want to carefully consider, but it’s better to be asked than ignored. Set a pattern in your career that allows you inspiration, functionality and endless opportunities to grow along sustainable lines.
CAPRICORN / Capricorn rising
It might start as an insight. It might feel like foresight. It might just be a moment of clear headed inspiration that sets you off. New paths. New promise. A renewed sense of possibilities. Or maybe it’s that you see the path you are already on, just more clearly now. By all means keep studying. By all means keep diving into the depths and the details of each discovery, but also start compiling notes, ideas and outlines for future use.
AQUARIUS / Aquarius rising
This weekend’s eclipse has fortunes in store for you. This may be a gift of emotional energy that you receive from another. This might be due to an advance, loan, gift or donation that you acquire from a loved one or a someone. This may be the gift of now seeing that you contribute just as much as anyone else. The point is that you can say yes to the gifts you’ve been given and share freely of your excess. The point is that the combining of your raw talent and their real resources will propel you both forward. Let this week’s eclipse teach you how to let others give to you.
PISCES / Pisces rising
Think of this eclipse as an opportunity to explore your ability to be discerning in love. Think of this eclipse as an opportunity to explore your ability to pick the partnering possibility (business as well as romance) that actually has the most potential. Think of this eclipse as your opportunity to think critically about what you want your relationship structures to look like. Think of this eclipse as your friend. Your relationship coach. Your confidante in commingling crusades. Think of this eclipse as a point to start from. A point to build from. A point to call a new start. It really doesn’t matter what you have done in past relationships or what others have done to you, if you use this time to write your love story anew.

Every day I take another step towards manifesting my dreams

New Moon Blessings to you, and may this Eclipse season be
just what you need ;-)
