The Sun in Virgo along with the Moon bring feelings of perfection to the surface. The conjunction occurs at a critical degree of Virgo, encouraging professionalism and purpose to our day. The Sun and Moon are opposing Neptune retrograde in Pisces, sextile with Pluto retrograde in Capricorn, and sextile to Jupiter in Scorpio. These planets are all tied together in a half-hexagon also described as a cradle. This can be difficult as we struggle to explore our unique talents but, at the same time, we feel some sense of ease as we explore our sense of resolve and a desire to learn more.
The next strong pattern in this chart is the Earth Grand Trine, Mercury in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus retrograde in Taurus. Tapping into this grand trine can give us a better understanding of what we need to do in order to find success. We may need to explore our past in order to move forward.
Another potent aspect pattern is the T-Square with Venus which has just ingressed the sign of Scorpio. Venus is opposing Uranus retrograde in Taurus, and square to Mars on the anaretic degree of Capricorn, as it is preparing to move into Aquarius. This can be a very powerful shift. Sometimes, when Mars has recently transited retrograde, as it prepares to move into the next sign after stationing direct, it can cause quite a stir. It is not uncommon for horrific disaster to occur shortly after a Mars ingress that follows Mars' retrograde ends. While it does not always happen, it is good to be aware of the potential to give us more options. The square aspects are likely to push on us, regardless, to adjust to the changes we occur.
Overall, we are in a state of flux with this new moon in Virgo. There is only one planet placed in masculine signs, meaning that all the other ten planets are transiting in feminine signs. While we are being pushed to change, these receptive placements are encouraging us to keep a status quo. We must make the best choice based on what we need from our situations. There are seven earth sign placements and three water signs placements, causing us to feel much more vulnerable and sensitive. There is the potential for a few meltdowns and tear-fests that test us. We may need to dig deep to get our strength from the faith in our beliefs. We may need to dust off our patience and determination to endure any difficulty to achieve our goals.
My apologies for the lateness of the article. I have been thrust into a new lifestyle change that I will need to navigate in order to balance everything that I attempt to do. Thank you for your patience.
