21 DECEMBER 2016, VIRGO
This 3rd quarter Moon in Virgo is quite an energy force. Is your energy bound into a tight ball of stress, like an echidna rolling up on itself, or ready to burst into passion and become unexpectedly productive, or fiery and reactive? Mercury rules Virgo and has just gone retrograde, which increases the chances of the Virgo energy becoming amplified. Virgo-related issues such as health, fitness, food, work, daily tasks, shopping, planning and organising are highlighted. Anything out of kilter might make itself obvious so you are empowered to fix it. A small detail could bring awareness just in the nick of time, or set off a domino effect of reaction! A life-changing decision could be made in an instant, especially as this quarter moon happens on the day of the Solstice, plus while Mercury is next to Pluto. Perhaps you smoke one cigarette too many at a Christmas party and that’s it – you go cold turkey and never look back. Perhaps you find the right health treatment after looking for it like a needle in a haystack for years, and within a few weeks of it, you feel reborn. If you experience the ‘tight ball of stress’ side of things, try brainstorming wildly outside the square about your problem, sleep on it, and see what emerges. Keep tweaking and sleeping on it, over and over, like Einstein did on E=Mc2, and the current transformative energies could help with a brilliant solution.
