Virgo Solar Eclipse

26 Aug

September starts off with a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo.  Eclipses are very significant in Astrology and can bring important changes that seem to come suddenly or surprisingly.  Time and events seem to speed up during Eclipse season.  Knowing which part of your chart is activated by the Eclipses will give clues as to what area of your life is being energized and transformed.  This is a New Moon Solar Eclipse, a time of new beginnings.  For many of us, the New Moon is a time to seed our intentions out into the Universe and a Solar Eclipse puts a lot of power behind them.  It’s an extra powerful New Moon that reaches far into the future since it is also a North Node Eclipse.

Virgo is in charge of our our everyday affairs; how we take care of ourselves, our health, our healers and doctors, our diets, exercise as well as our work, our daily routines and chores and how we order our lives.  Virgo and the 6th house get the label of “mundane” but really, isn’t this just life??  It will be with these matters that we are to seed a new cycle.

This lunation finds itself in the ongoing tension between Saturn and Neptune.  While Saturn represents our boundaries and limits, Neptune has none.  Saturn represents structure and what we call reality and Neptune has been blurring the lines all year long.

What is real and what is an illusion?

 During this time our faith has been tested, we’ve had to get at the truth – our own truth, or get real on some issue, to be accountable, to discover what success means to us personally but also to go for our dreams.  That’s the thing, though these two energies are so very different, they need each other.  We can manifest our visions and deepest dreams.  Dreaming it into being.  We may have also needed to sort through our illusions and fears and there’s a lot coming to the surface to confront and deal with. Most of us are straddling amid these two energies.  It may go something like this:  at times feeling high on life’s possibilities and then overwhelmed with responsibilities, details and the sheer amount of work that lies ahead, being all too aware of our shortcomings wondering if you can measure up or make it happen then wanting to escape or to go back to old familiar ways. Or some version of this.  Go ahead and write your own story there.  Mars in Sagittarius is still close enough and continues to energize this pattern– pushing for freedom and honesty.

The good thing is that we’ve had help from Jupiter in Virgo all year giving our powers of discernment a boost and assisting us in moving beyond unproductive programming.  We can be aware of our shortcomings and flaws without letting it unravel us. Jupiter will move on to Libra on September 9th and won’t return to Virgo for twelve years.  There’s that number 9 again!  The ninth day of the ninth month in a nine year.

Recalibrating our perception

According to “The Zodiac by Degrees- 360 New Symbols” by Martin Goldsmith, the Sabian Symbol for this Solar Eclipse at 9 degrees Virgo reads,

“Balancing on a high rocky outcropping, a master surveyor argues with his apprentice about what they are actually seeing. Pulling the apprentice to his own position, the master surveyor hands him a pair of binoculars”

This suggests the need and/or ability to see things differently. Perception creates reality and here we’re given the opportunity to be the co-creators of our lives. Yay!  But scary too huh? Be mindful of your thoughts.  This is hard work and takes practice and integration into our everyday lives. What will you manifest? 

Pluto in Capricorn is in a supportive aspect to this lunation allowing a reformation of structures.

Mercury, the ruler of this Eclipse has just gone retrograde in his own sign of Virgo just two days before this Eclipse.  This suggests back tracking and covering old ground.  This may be with health issues, matters with work, co-workers or employees, an apprentice or handyman; maybe there is a need to re-organize or re-do something.  Reprogramming perhaps??

 Mercury Rx and Jupiter are also paired up giving us a broad overview and seeing how everything fits together.  We’ve been problem solving and troubleshooting and may finally have some solutions. It’s like before his departure, Jupiter bestows the wisdom he’s gathered during his stay in Virgo on to Mercury Rx so he can re-organize.

Chiron in Pisces is across the sky allowing for an awareness, confrontation and integration with some of our deeper wounds, our flawed parts. You know, that one thing that’s always lurking in the background ready to trip you up?  Yeah that.  Perhaps there’s an unknown or misdiagnosed illness or something illusive that you couldn’t quite pin down. There could now be health questions, answers, solutions and forms; there may be conversations reiterating, retelling of symptoms, effects, allergies and complaints. There could be re-checking and researching information or for the right doctor or healer or perhaps a plan or program of treatment.

May the Stars shine upon YOU and bless your life with health and happiness at this Virgo Solar Eclipse!

Mars enters Virgo

15 Oct

October 15, 2013

Mars entered Virgo early this morning and will stay until December 6.  At this time our actions and energy is geared toward productivity, efficiency, and practicality. We’ll have nearly six weeks of this energy.  We can use this time to get clean and organized, or to de-clutter. So roll up those sleeves!  Virgo is the sign of work, service and health and it is a perfect time to start a new diet or exercise routine.  At this time we could be implementing a new schedule or creating new work habits in order to get the most out of each day.  We can use our powers of discrimination to see what works and what doesn’t.  Speaking of work, try to avoid any clashes with co-workers or it could be that you are doing some kind of activity or event, working on projects and spending more time with co-workers.  Virgo is also the sign of the craftsman (woman) so you may be working on a project of that nature.  With Virgo, practice makes perfect and it could also be that you are perfecting some sort of craft or technique.  We want to feel useful at this time.  If you fell a bit short on your goals at the Virgo New Moon back in September, you can certainly catch up now.  The last time Mars visited Virgo was back in mid November of 2011 for an extended stay (due to retrograde) until early July 2012.  You may want to think back to what projects you had going on back then.
