✧ Today’s Medicine Buddha Day brims with added planetary medicine, with no less than four heavenly bodies in remedial Virgo. Love Goddess Venus, is now conjunct Hygea, the asteroid specific to healing and restoration, next to expansive, lucky Jupiter, and dynamic Mars. All four are currently concentrated within a very tight five degree area in the sky, from 10-15 degrees in the sign of the Virgin, the sign of perfection and practicality.
✧ Planets and significant points of the horoscope in this sign reveal how to look after self and serve others as best one can for the benefit of all beings. Due to a fixed star, Zozma, which can denote lively connections, there is a shadow side to this early part of this particular stellium (which resonates until the 1st week of November); certain situations can render those not in strong positions, powerless. So best stop slouching, wake-up now and do one’s best to not sleepwalk into difficult circumstances.
✧ Beware also the bamboozle factor, as one can all too easily be prey to others, especially if one falls for empty promise, illusion and glamour.
✧ Thankfully, because Luna is joined by Earth Mother Ceres, this pragmatic 1st quarter Capricorn Moon suggests realistic and sensible ideas can come to light, which have every potential to lead to creative expression and loving, peaceful relationship. But it will take a no-nonsense attitude – and work.
✧ It’s also Navratri in the Hindu calendar, when honouring the Goddess purifies and empowers. Navratri takes place four times a year; once during each season. Autumn sees the Goddess at her most powerful, with today’s 1st quarter Moon endowing courage and equanimity, befitting the balancing Libra Sun.
