PLANETARY RULER: Mercury in Virgo
DATE: Thursday, September 14th, 2023
TIME: 9:40 PM EST
This New Moon is a critical turning point in the month of September. Venus has stationed direct, and Mercury will station direct just hours after this lunation. We’ve thoroughly reviewed the logistics, worked out the kinks, and are now truly ready to plant some new seeds.
And that’s just the thing to remember…whatever’s happening now is still only a seed. We won’t see the harvest of this lunation until 6 months from now, when we experience the Virgo Full Moon on February 24th, 2024.
Virgo energy is practical and discerning. It knows, perhaps better than any other sign, how to get from one place to another in both the most logical and efficient manner. This New Moon feels like buying a new puzzle and knowing you hold all the pieces of the final picture in your hands. We can begin to group the pieces into organized piles that will help the overall picture take shape…but we can’t see how it will fully come together quite yet.
The importance, here, is about trusting the process. This summer’s retrogrades brought us to this important crossroads, and while we might not understand everything to come quite yet, the pieces will soon begin to fall into place.
The mutable signs (Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces) will feel this New Moon most intensely.
