New Virgo Moon ~> 25th August ~> @15:13bst
The remedial Virgo Sun’s ruler, quicksilver Mercury, makes an encouraging and helpful aspect to the currently forceful Mars/Saturn conjunction in powerful, secretive Scorpio. Setting a positive intention is paramount with the start of a lunation that begins with a mighty Mars/Saturn conjunction, as this potent vibration can hold for the whole month. I recently likened this aggregation of forceful scarlet Mars and taskmaster Saturn to that of wading through treacle: Sweet because the connection of Jupiter/Venus is still in playful Leo; but sticky too, due to the muddied and complex nature of active Mars and karmic Saturn controlling; with fiery Mars an earthy Saturn can harden and form into something solid, like a wall that can either protect, or one that needs scaling in order to discover what's behind or reach further insights.
Luckily, the shape-shifting Virgo Mercury’s plasticity allows the mind to see what is concretising from various angles. Mercury's variety of experience shows it’s how we view situations, which can make all the difference to both process and outcome. So we need to be careful how we now shape our thoughts at the time of this New Moon in the the beautiful sign of the Virgo Goddess, and particularly how we steer inner feelings to discern and stabilize emotions, to reap the individual and collective healing this lunation offers. For concentrated deep spiritual healing employ feminine wisdom with the compassion of a rational heart, and we can heal the dream, as well as dream the healing.
