New Moon in Virgo

The New Moon begins in Virgo on the 19th October 2017 at 20:12 GMT and in New York at 15:12 EDT.

By Kim Lovelace
Once again we have a Virgo New Moon, because in 13 Star Sign Sidereal Astrology Virgo lasts for 44 days, making it quite common to have two New Moons in this sign. The most common factor of the Virgo Moon is her nervous energy which is the root cause of her ailments; nervous stomach, acid indigestion and colic, which often lead to bowel problems. It is so important that the Moon in Virgo watches her diet and manages her nervous energy by using deep breathing exercises and calming meditations. The Virgo Moon would benefit from a high fiber diet, fermented foods, as well as whole grains to stabilize her energy, combat bad bacteria in her stomach and keep her bowels moving in a healthy way. Hypoglycemia is another problem for the Moon in Virgo, so avoiding sugar or any other artificial sweeteners is a must. Calming teas would also be very beneficial.

The aspects to our New Moon this month. indicates that there will be a lot of talk but not much action, as our minds are likely to be overstimulated by the Moon's conjunction with the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter; in which, all are in opposition to Uranus. We also have a Grand Aspect, the T-Square, with Mars opposing Chiron and both in square to Saturn. Communications and the way we communicate is the key theme for this New Moon and for the next two weeks.

Although the aspects to our Moon portray a highly optimistic, imaginative and passionate nature, the nervous energy of both the Virgo Moon and Uranus will make it hard for us to control this energy wisely and in a balanced way. Stimulating conversations are likely to turn into heavy debates if we are unable to connect to our inner wisdom and maintain our self control. We must balance our minds with our hearts and if we can't do this, then we must take the time out to delve into what the block is. MORE

The Season of Virgo
Sept. 16-Oct. 30

Who is Virgo? (Sept 16-Oct 30) One has to wonder what is going on behind Virgo's calm gaze, is there something deeper, the glimpse of a smile? Maybe it's because she can see all your faults.

Virgo and the Stars

Virgo is untapped energy, waiting to be energized. In the dark void, they explode with color when sparked into action. Virgo searches for an agent of change, the enzyme, the electrical charge, the magic spell, to awaken the sleeping Virgin and give her life. Virgo is like a fluorescent light, with its inert hydrocarbons cold and lifeless; switch it on and it makes Virgo illuminate with a brilliant light.

Virgos require partnership, even though they may come to eventually despise its restrictions. The same devotion that turns their darkness to light, also subjugates them to selflessness, their service to others. Virgo is reactive, responsive--which makes this a female deity; however, what the Virgo does is very masculine. They can give form and vitality to dead space with their gifts.

They are the critics, craftsmen and fixers. They posses an endless ingenuity. They adjust to the material conditions of their day, and make the proper improvements and changes that are the most necessary in the moment. But they don't do it just for themselves; they do it for others. They are the "Man Friday" or the supportive female. They give out of altruism, and want only the recognition of their service in return. A big problem for Virgo is that they often don't get this.

Virgo has the largest demographic; they are the most populous sign, they represent the common man and woman, the masses. Virgo's true size encompasses 45 degrees of the Zodiac, having the most width and breadth of all the signs. This means there are more Virgos than any other sign, with 46 days of birth opportunities.

The Universe is made up of plasma and Virgo's nature mimics this volatile gas, as bolts of lightning activate galactic plasma into cords of cosmic power, which gives birth to new stars.

Thus she earns the archetype of a virgin, one with an ever-recurring ability to remake themselves, over and over until the filament is exhausted. Virgo's virginity doesn't imply a lack of sexual experience, since Virgos get plenty of sex, and in fact, use it for healing themselves and others. The Virgin only suggests that no suitor or sexual partner can ever dominate them, they remain unfettered by the bondage of marriage, even as Virgo yearns for completion through partnership.

The Virgo way is rejuvenation and restoration, in both mind and body. That's why Virgo rules the stomach and the digestive process, and a happy stomach makes Virgo a happy person.

The Virgo can tell everything from the bowel movement. This is the Virgo quality control. The Virgo seeks purity--the perfect stool, the perfect skin, the perfect smell. Unlike her spawn, Libra, she finds her purpose through the honesty and appreciation of others.

The Virgo loves people--but after a lifetime of unlovable people feeding off her like vampires, she gets her fill, and turns over her love and service to the animal kingdom, which IS pure in its simple, natural, dependable ethics, wherein the Virgo finds true beauty.

Virgo searches for flaws and has a withering critical eye, but she only criticizes people she is tiring of. It's a sign of disappointment and distrust. She is a tester of people's mettle; and therefore she feels like she is always on thin ice requiring constant assurance, acceptance and encouragement.

Others may see this purification ritual as endless, pointless, and hurtful. The Virgo literally USES UP the energy in every relationship she has, and it forces her to move on to seek new engagements, new ideas, and to follow her star, SPICA, which is the brightest blue star in the sky.

Trump's Worst Transit:
Saturn-Moon in Ophiuchus

Retrograde Saturn is taking another swipe at the Trump magic

As the need is greater than ever for effective leadership, Americans face the possibility of a Trump administration bloodied like a mortally wounded bull in the ring, kicking and trashing around, part of a global trend of failed states mired in corruption and fraud. His own lack of substance, desperate isolation and pervasive paranoia may spell more danger for Trump than any media backlash or attempts to disgrace him by his enemies. Only Trump can defeat Trump.

Tchyia: Fall Equinox

Globally, the life we have come to know and love is being ripped away from us. This includes all forms of slavery and fossil fuels. A life of convenience. A life of privilege. We must develop a new strategy to prepare for what is ahead. Many of the ways of modern society cause pain, and yet, we continue. Are these disasters natural? Did our way of life cause this? Or, did we sleep while greedy business tycoons took over the global economy, developing weapons of weather manipulation in order to control us, foods and drugs to kill us, willing to destroy the world for another dollar? We are still responsible. We are the people of the Earth. Even if we cannot “save the world” we still have time to change our actions so that at least, when we go to face our Creator, we can say that we woke up and tried to make things right towards the end.

The Age of Austerity

A look at our remaining life choices in the face of austerity, according to the prevailing wisdom, by Brian McFadden

The ruling class hopes to avoid the cataclysmic boomerang effect of its concentration of wealth by spreading the misery to the masses of people, little by little, in small increments of pain. The survival of capitalism depends the elimination of the need for workers, and their demotion to wage slavery. What happened to the much-vaulted promise of an ever-rising sea of prosperity that elevates the worker into middle-class status? That was a ruse to get us invested in the fortunes of the billionaires. Our new heroes, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Tesla's Elon Musk, have been thrust upon us as saviors, as the system grinds their potential customers into dust. They, like the fake prosperity that they represent, are mirages of a system with no foundation, no future. MORE

Ophiuchus: Then and Now

Reposted from 13astrology

By Natalie Miller

Did you know that Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio (as it is today) used to be one giant Scorpion constellation?  It’s true.  This ancient trifecta is what has birthed the new sign of Ophiuchus.  What makes Ophiuchans so alluring?  I believe it is their ability to balance reason and intuition with the confidence to manifest accordingly.  So why do Ophiuchan Suns usually come across shy as if they are hiding something.  It’s because they are. MORE

Where Jupiter lies in our chart is where we are “on a mission” so to speak.  It’s an area of life that forever beckons to us.  Jupiter in our charts radiates it’s mood all through our other planets and aspects. To find where Jupiter lies in your 13 Sign Natal Chart visit this site or contact me.

Jupiter in Aries

These folks themselves are raw energy in motion.  When they find their calling they are very good at figuring out what you can do to help them achieve their goals.  They are so powerful because they spend a lot of timing figuring themselves out.  Given the right ideology, these folks can make a big mark on our world.  When they rise, we follow.  We are attracted to the very best side of these people.  If only they could see themselves through our eyes.  Their fire can either run out of kindling leaving them feeling empty inside or light a way for others.  However, if they have lackadaisical or self obsessed goals, they can suck the life out of yours with a force only Jupiter in Sagittarius can contend with.

Neptune in Aries (1873 - 1884)

This was a time of gathering, conquering, collecting.  Repeat.  The subconscious mind is uncontrollable and Aries needs to be in control.  There were moments of troubled incertitude and the rawness of this confusion made armies form, precisely organize and attack with little regard for the enemy.  The victors came back together stronger like a pool in which bacteria gestates.  Scientists birthed their inventions.

"Thorn" By Hiroko Sakai

Ophiuchus and
Women's Anger


A defining issue for women is emerging, and Ophiuchus is leading the way. Thousands of years of stored-up women's anger is bubbling to the surface. Women have bottled up their resentment of male supremacy to a pressure point that it can explode at any moment. No longer content to swallow their second-class status, women are rising up in defiance of the system that has defined them as man's servants and concubines. Women are coming to the realization that THEY are the real agents of change, that men are unfocused and trapped by their own egos and emotions.

Women are no longer content to accept their role in their relations with men, children, with each other, and the family. The female is becoming alienated from her subservient roles. Many women are resisting the patriarchy, facing it down in the streets and in the court rooms.

Women Who Kill

Women pushed past their limits

The confidant, boastful world of men is spinning out of control, and women are fomenting a not-so-silent revolution. The yielding, supportive and suffering female is disappearing, and being replaced by a much more militant version of herself. Their pliant codependency with men has not served them well enough to let it continue, and women have had enough. Women are sifting through the rubble of their hopes and dreams and demanding more of themselves, and more from the men who have sabotaged them for centuries. They won't be willing victims of the system any longer. MORE

Cave paintings like the one above, date back to 40,000 years ago, when women were fleshed out as the vital elements of early human communities, as its leaders, hunters and healers, and of course, the source of life. Men were less defined, (the naked figure with the hanging appendage) viewed mostly as sperm donors, more noteworthy for their penis than any other attribute, as another of women's domesticated animals, like the dog also pictured.
