1 SEPTEMBER 2016, VIRGO, Supermoon NO, Eclipse YES
Life has spiked our drinks! The smallest happy things can have us dancing up and down ecstatically or the tiniest glitches can have us crying in our cornflakes. The New Moon in Virgo makes a powerful alignment to Neptune, god of wine, infatuation, fluctuating emotions, inspiration, art, music and poetry. Perhaps something ecstatically wonderful really is unfolding. Or perhaps the last straw breaks in a disappointing situation. Fortunately, the Virgo influence helps us pay attention to real life details and work out the next practical steps. Don’t ignore the small details or intriguing hints life places in front of you right now. They’re clues to your next steps. This New Moon is also a Partial Solar Eclipse. Eclipses bring unseen factors. Let’s say you’ve been doing a jigsaw puzzle, and you’re about to put the last pieces in place, but suddenly they disappear from the table. Or perhaps the opposite – you’re running late and have only just started your jigsaw, when suddenly you have a flash of genius and join the pieces together in record time. Mercury, also in Virgo, is retrograde right now helping see through different eyes. If you’re being too rigid, daydream. If you’re being too hopeful and idealistic, start scoping out practicalities. There’s an incredible combination of practicality and creativity at this New Moon, plus generosity and strictness to draw upon. You can stop an undermining habit right now. You can successfully implement a new part of your life. Include a good dose of patience, with yourself, with others, with life’s little tricks, and you’ll be flowing with the best of the Virgo vibe.
