The new moon today is in the last decan of Virgo, giving us the desire to put the finishing touches on the projects that we have been working on this past month. Essentially, the last waves from the solar eclipse in August are being felt during this new moon. We are feeling more "inward" today, wanting to stay focused on the little details that feel most important to us. The new moon is in a loose square to Saturn in Sagittarius. This can lend itself to feelings of depression or frustration. Our problem-solving skills may feel impeded today. Sometimes we just need to kick the can down the road a bit, to allow our perspective to change. Stay optimistic that a good answer will be revealed in a day or two.
Mercury in Virgo is right at home with helping us to see the heart of a problem, developing skills to improve our work situation, or giving others a helping hand. Mercury is conjunct to Mars, helping us to be more decisive and honest within our interactions. This ties into Neptune retrograde in Pisces and Pluto retrograde in Capricorn to form a wedge pattern. The four planets do a type of mind meld to help us stay on track, creatively and spiritually. The key is to find the value in the task.
Venus is moving into Virgo today. The passions that we may have been feeling yesterday, may shift to a more deliberate curiosity. We are less likely to be pulled around by what others might do for us. Our perspective changes and others may wonder "what just happened." It's not that our minds have changed. It's more that our perspective now has a different vantage.. Venus is now forming an out of sign trine to Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Libra. This shift by Venus into a different sign will not blend so well and the positives that we were feeling just a few days ago, while Venus was still in Leo, will now cause us to feel some discomfort for the next few days. It may feel like a different reality took over, and it does not feel so warm and fuzzy anymore.
Don't forget that Jupiter is finishing up the transit in Libra. The ingress to Scorpio will be on October 10. Take advantage of any of the positives that Jupiter's transit in Libra may have provided for you, as the big shift will change all that.
The placement of the planets in this new moon chart give us flexibility and adaptability. What we lack is fortitude and/or endurance. It's a go with the flow type of day. We are more willing to help others, and lend a hand for the good of the community as the majority of the planets are in the feminine receptive placements. But, we may also tend to hold onto grudges or be concrete in our feelings about others since there are six placements in the Earth element. Our strengths are in our resourcefulness and tapping into monetary opportunities that may not actually involve money. With seven planets in the Mutable quality, we may change our minds throughout the day, trying to decide on the choice. Error on the side of resourceful, to make the right decision.
