A new moon of opportunities. Unexpected developments spur you on to achieve your goals. This new moon in Virgo, comes at a time when we all very much need fresh opportunities to bring order out of the chaos. The events played out over the last few weeks in Afghanistan, need the energy of the flexibility of Virgo to attain some clarity, on the road out of chaos. The world has watched on fairly helplessly, as this humanitarian drama has unfolded. The volatile energy of Mars, also in Virgo, trine retrograde Pluto in Capricorn, suggests the sword is proving mightier than the word, and the cost in all senses of the word will be enormous and felt worldwide. As I write this blog on 21st August at the Full Moon in Aquarius, the unfolding events give huge cause for concern. I refer you to my full moon blog available on my website for more insight on these matters.
The hope I feel we can have, is in the fact that Uranus retrograde, trines the new moon. Let’s look at this. Virgo is about service and workable routines through attention to detail. The way to withdraw the sword, can come through unexpected developments that enable experienced world leaders to negotiate a diplomatic resolution to all concerned. Secret deals may come to light, and throughout the posturing from various world leaders there may appear a surprising victor, in terms of negotiating skills.
On a personal level, this Virgo energy invites us to search for routines that serve our highest good. This means analysing the thoughts you have and the words you use. Do you talk kindly to yourself? Do you listen to your body and what it might be telling you? Or do you allow your thoughts free rein to manifest aches pains and ailments? The way through this is to be mindful of how you talk to yourself. I remember being exhausted at one time when looking after my disabled mother, and I kept saying “I need a break”. Well, a little later I broke my leg. As the universe took me at my word and gave me a break. This new moon energy can be used wisely to pay attention to implementing new and healthier routines in your daily life. To be aware of self talk and nip it in the bud. To choose language to yourself that serves your highest good. The Divine can step in when we least expect it, to manifest what we bemoan, literally. So, use this helpful and kind new moon energy to treat yourself like someone you truly love.
And finally, to end on a positive note, there’s a lot of luck and unexpected abundance available through this new moon energy. The tide is, and can turn for all of us. As Captain Jean Luc Picard used to say in Star Trek the Next Generation. “Make it so.” So…. Make it so!
