A Workshop for the New Moon in Virgo, Full Moon in Aries and the Astrology of Sept. 17th - Oct. 15th + A Journey through Mars Retrograde Part 2
The New Moon in Virgo arrives at 4.00am PT on September 17th. Sitting in an exact trine to Saturn, this New Moon is one to build with. This combination is discerning, deliberate, and decisive. It helps us hone in on strategies for long-term growth whose infrastructure is sound and supportive. The ruler of this New Moon is Mercury, who on the same day is in an exuberant square to Jupiter. Make the most of the moment of practical enthusiasm that the New Moon in Virgo offers, as tension quickly builds with the turning of the seasons.
The Equinox occurs on September 22nd. As the Sun and Mercury occupy Libra, they sit in direct opposition to Mars, now retrograde in Aries. This shines a light on what gets us overheated, agitated, and in need of hydration. Retrograde and opposite the Sun, Mars now rises as the Sun sets, dominating our dream space and unearthing the more unconscious challenges we face.
Mercury then enters its pre-retrograde shadow on September 23rd, all while opposing Mars retrograde. Here, Mercury acts like a megaphone for the sentiments of Mars. Intense emotions, challenging conversations, and reactions to discomfort are voiced. What happens now gets revisited during Mercury’s upcoming retrograde. Communication issues increase. Cast your ballot early.
The last square between Mars in Aries and Saturn in Capricorn occurs on September 29th, as Mars is retrograde and Saturn stations direct. This is a very defining corner of the year, one that will have most of us finishing up an important project or in the midst of challenging decisions. There isn’t much margin for error, so be a good scout and come prepared.
The Full Moon in Aries occurs on October 1st, at 2:05pm PT. Sitting next to its ruler Mars and Chiron, this Full Moon has no chill. Always a little extra, this Full Moon in Aries takes it to the next level and is bound to magnify the messages of Mars retrograde. Red hot and bothered, we’ll need to balance the moment with intentional coolants to the system.
Mercury stations retrograde on October 13th. Mercury stations retrograde while opposing Uranus in Taurus, bringing upsets, unforeseen changes, and unpredictable outcomes. It’s a destabilizing start to an already sensitively timed Mercury retrograde, urging us to not be complacent when working through the most tenuous of communication issues.
