What does Mercury want to tell you at the Virgo New Moon

August 27th Time for Healing at the Virgo New Moon

Virgo is the earth sign ruled by Mercury the Messenger. It’s the Goddess, the Priestess. Ruler Mercury is in Venus’s sign of Libra, offering diplomacy and balance into communications. This is the tarot card of Justice. With so many workers going on strike in the UK this is vital for a peaceful outcome. The good news is that Mercury forms a close trine-a positive aspect to Mars in Gemini, the sign ruled by Mercury. Both are in air signs. However Mars forms an exact square to the New Moon, so there’s a fight going on.

So this Virgo New Moon is complicated.

Plus we have a tense alignment at this New Moon in Virgo with Venus opposite Saturn and both squaring the nodal axis. Venus wants pleasure and love. In the sign of Leo she’s the star taking centre stage. But Saturn brings self-doubt and caution. The way through is commitment.

Virgo sorts the wheat from the chaff, its the gift of discrimination and knowing what’s most important. It’s the time of year when students go back to school, a time of learning. Virgo teaches us to take care of our health, to focus on our diet and daily routines. Keeping track of expenditure is now of vital importance with the soaring energy bills in the UK.

Planets are Retrograde

This is not uncommon as it happens every year, but for the next few months all planets from Jupiter to Pluto are retrograde. On September 10th Mercury begins its third retrograde of the year in Libra, going back into Virgo on September 24th. So while its in Virgo we have a two week window of opportunity to get things sorted. It goes forward on October 2nd and returns to Libra on October 11th.

Looking ahead Mars goes retrograde on October 30th. It spends 6 months in Gemini, so where that is in your chart gets a major power boost of energy.

Mercury in peace loving Libra goes retrograde

With Mercury in Libra, then going retrograde in September you may be caught in delaying making decisions. Libra is the scales, so balance is important. However Libra’s shadow is indecision.

Analysis paralysis is what many of us who have a strong streak of perfectionism in our psyches may have been struggling with. The feelings of being a fraud or a failure are weapons that the ego-that small part of us that wants to play safe, may have holding you back. It’s known as the Imposter Syndrome.

A reminder of this famous quote from Marianne Williamson in her book “A Return to Love”:-

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

Listen to your dreams and the whisperings in your ear from the angels and spirit world. Write, draw- put down on paper your vision for your future. Mercury will be retrograde and exalted again in Virgo on September 24th -October 11th. This truly is the perfect time to call on help from friends in High Places.  

As the saying goes, make Gratitude your Attitude.

In need of personal emotional and spiritual support?

If you have any planet around 4 degrees then this Virgo New Moon will be activating it. You could be undergoing some significant relationship issues in your life as Venus at 19 Degrees Leo makes an opposition to Saturn in Aquarius. There could be a strong desire to break free and go off on your own. I can support and guide you in this process.

This is an ideal time for a consultation. See this page for more information
