Welcome to Virgo energy!
Sometimes I feel like people look to astrology for hard and fast answers for everything. Today, as I begin to write about this week’s planetary transits and aspects, I am reflecting on the many interesting things that occurred last week. One of them being the hurricane that dumped more than two feet of rain on the island of Hawaii.
Then there is the dead sea life washing up in massive amounts all along the Florida coast. Things like this don’t happen over night or for no reason. There is a cause and effect that takes place over time. The same can be said about many of our human diseases.
And lets not forget the raging fires in California. Uneducated, ignorant, and self-serving explanations don’t help. Some would say that Astrology doesn’t either. I won’t debate this but will tell you what I have seen take place this summer.
The aspects over all this summer have been dramatic and difficult. All the best know astrologers are all taking about these things. Some say the aspects we have seen this year, have not occurred 20-30,000 years. Lots planetary energy has been in the signs of fire and water.
Those that study the chart of our country also see things that have not been in place since its beginnings. Other factors are nearly similar to those days. At the very least, I think we can say that astrology shows us trigger points for patterns of energy that will have cause and effect on the planet and all its inhabitants.
Today, we have just passed the peak of the Sun-Saturn- Uranus Grand trine. This is a good aspect for the most part. There is some square or difficult energy between Uranus and Pluto but we have been dealing with this for 10 years. The meaning here is that this difficulty is influencing the Grand Trine since Uranus is one of the players there. I
Pluto is definitely asking us to take a deep look into everything and end what need to end or close what needs to close. Over all the question seems to be, ‘is this the way we want things to be or can we do better?” And what better time to make adjustments than a Full Moon.
Today the Moon is full in Pisces. A Pisces Full Moon asks us to make adjustments and to let go of what no longer serves us in our spiritual relationships, intuitive creativity, and in our dreams. Do not be afraid to ask for what you want or need spiritually. With Virgo in polarity to this Moon, there is a great deal of energy around balance in our daily lives.
This moon also aligns with the Sun-Saturn-Uranus Grand Trine and forms a Kite pattern. The focal point of this pattern is the Sun or the self and our ego. It’s time to take a look at ourselves and decide if we are where we really want to be or do we need to let go of stuff and create something new.
Some of us have no clue that we came here to accomplish a mission. Others have created or adopted a mission for themselves that is not in alignment with what the Universe had in mind for us, or perhaps this is not the right time for what we want. We might be wise to use balance and explore ways the Virgo Sun’s influence can positively serve us.
When things are not working the way we think they should, it is often because we are going against the Universal plan outlined for us long before this lifetime.
We do have free choice as humans and are therefore free to be as stubborn as we please. Just remember that all road blocks are caused by one of these to factors….at least that I what I currently believe. Feel free to have a different perspective.
Monday Mars turns direct after two months of being retrograde. Now that we have all had time to reflect on being a better leader and being more assertive, all while being our unique selves in service to humanity in ways we enjoy.
There was also a reflective aspect around authority, discipline, and all things Capricorn. This retrograde transit for Mars covered a lot of diverse things because the retrograde transit traveled in both Aquarius and Capricorn. This week we will begin to move forward along with Mars and we should notice forward movement in our daily lives again.
Monday also brings us a difficult aspect between the Sun and Pluto. This can take us deep inside ourselves and discover our hidden talents and gifts that can help us overcome any obstacles we face. Be aware that we might also feel the need to use manipulation to control.
Monday also brings Mercury in a difficult aspect to Chiron. Communications might not be spot on, or careless and hurtful. Knowing the intent behind a communication is probably going to be very difficult. Impatience, different points of view, and guilt could be what we experience today. Good ole Chiron often brings out our feelings of guilt.
Tuesday Mercury squares off with Jupiter. As you might already know, Jupiter loves to increase and grow whatever energy it is in aspect with. This square could bring on a feeling of overwhelm due to TMI (too much information). Pay attention to details because they can get lost with this energy. And try not to become too frustrated with yourself in a bit of a pickle with communications or travel. The temporary lack of focus can play havoc on us now. It will be important to be patient with others and ourselves until this passes. Not that is not a consistently good thing for us to do.
Wednesday Mercury will be inconjunct Pluto.This energy is about power struggles, second guessing our decisions, and making adjustments to them if needed. I wonder how this one will play out on the world stage. It should be interesting.
Thursday there are no major aspects but on Friday there is a semi-square with Venus and the Sun. This will bring our awareness of what we find bothersome in others and how that is reflected in our own life. This is never an easy thing for humans is it? Never the less, it does happen perhaps more often in some than in others. Creativity is good way to combat any discontent we may be feeling. I like to doodle or create my own tangle patterns, and color. I find this very calming and meditative.
This is all I have to share about this week. Please remember to be kind and smile to everyone you meet regardless of circumstance. The Universe also smiles when we do.
