The waning Moon shifts into Virgo at 2:31 AM Friday morning in preparation for the New Moon on Sunday. We will have two changes of sign before the weekend ends in addition to the New Moon so there will be a lot of shifting energies to deal with as we roll through Friday and the weekend energies. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself having to work or be of service in some capacity since Virgo is the sign of work/service. Friday is a one star day, Saturday is a two star day and Sunday is a one star day as well; not much energetic support here, so plan on doing extra self-care work as you move through the weekend.
The Moon in Virgo offers an extra energy boost to earth sign natives (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) and brings humanity’s focus to issues of analysis, prudence, perfection, emotional detachment and success. Dress in earthy shades of black, brown, gray, tan or blue; agate, moss agate, peridot, rhodocrosite, celestite or diamond crystals will also offer a vibration that compliments the earthy nature of a Virgo Moon. Lavender, mint, bergamot or patchouli incense or essential oils are refreshing and will offer a nice lift to your spirits as we move through the dark of the moon phase of this lunar cycle.
Moon transiting through Libra shifts the energy benefits to air sign natives (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) and the focus to issues of self examination, self-awareness, seduction, balance, fairness and partnership. Pastel shades, rose, pink or black are excellent choices for a Libra Moon transit. Celestite, amethyst, opal, aquamarine or rose quartz crystals and vanilla, violet, rose, or lemon verbena essentials oils or incense all lend a hand in the balance department and help you to keep calm under duress.
Friday 14 September 2012 try not to let fuzzy thinking or fast talking tricksters get you to entertain shady new notions when the Moon opposes Neptune at 4:36 AM (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PDT). You would do well to wait till the New Moon or after to consider making agreements with others. Law of attraction work, visualizations, metaphysical studies or research projects all benefit from a Moon-Pluto trine at 2:39 PM, helping you to pin point mysteries or break through old habits–especially since we’re in the dark of the Moon!
Saturday 15 September 2012 the Moon forms a sextile to Mars 4:33 AM urging you to get up and at ’em earlier than you might like on a weekend. Don’t over do promises or expectations (and beware those who promise you the Sun and the Moon) when the Moon squares Jupiter at 5:52 AM. The New Moon clocks in at 7:11 PM (23 degrees of Virgo). Holistic health therapies, visits to the doctor, care of dependents and the seeking of stable employment are all topics that fall under the aegis of a Virgo New Moon. Make the best of the next two weeks leading into the Full Moon for acquiring new employment, sorting out health issues and or settling the needs of your dependents.
Sunday 15 September the Moon conjoins Mercury at 4:26 AM and you may find yourself awake early and needing to deal with communications issues. The Moon is void of course after that aspect, but enters Libra at 5:55 AM bringing our relationships into focus for the next several days. Mercury enters Libra at 4:22 PM making the topic of partnership a hot one for communications now till 4 October 2012 when Mercury decamps for Scorpio in preparation for yet another Mercury retrograde. Beware of tyrants and heavy handed officials when the Moon squares Pluto at 5:33 PM; you’ll not find any quarter given, so forget compromise, just do what is asked and get out of their way as quickly as possible. The Moon in opposition to upstart Uranus at 5:42–a few minutes later may tempt you to mouth off–best advice is don’t. Keep cool and carry on; wait for the tyrants to move off (or move along yourself), if at all possible.
