the devil is in the details but so is salvation (anon)
On the 30th of this month there will be a New Moon at 06°47’ Virgo, a Mutable, Earth sign ruled by Mercury which is also presently transiting this sign together with Mars (closely conjunct the lunation) and Venus.
This could therefore be a supercharged New Moon with Mars adding argumentativeness to an already hyper-critical Virgo Moon that always wants to be of help. The tight trine to Uranus retrograde in Taurus could add a crave for emotional excitement as shyness and inhibitions (typical of Virgo) take on a more sensual hue and[...]
...and nit-picky and worrisome come to my mind as well as wanting to help at all costs
This is the fourth planet to enter Virgo this month and it will be joined by the Moon tomorrow.
Mercury in Virgo is very analytical and rather sceptical becoming quite fastidious, even nagging, in its love of detail. Entering Virgo it has the company of Venus and Mars already in this sign.
These characteristics could be even more accentuated when Mercury squares Jupiter, now in Sagittarius, on 5th September but perhaps the trine to Saturn, also retrograde, in Capricorn, on the same day may ground [...]
Venus in Virgo intellectualises love and intimacy and is also pretty good at maths when it comes to managing finances so keeping a check on over-spending could be a welcome (and necessary for some of us) break after the Leo extravagance.
This rationalisation or intellectualisation of what we most treasure takes away something from our intrinsic affectional make-up thus making us appear “cold”, irritable and highly strung.
Virgo needs to express love in a practical way so how about cooking something delicious for our loved ones or treating ourselves to a relaxing [...]
a mechanical housewife?
After swaggering its way through Leo during the last six weeks or so Mars now enters the more modest and service-orientated sign of Virgo.
Mars has a two-year orbit which means that it was in Virgo approximately two years ago.
Mars in Virgo adds energy to the Virgoan characteristics. Virgo obviously loves being of help and service and Mars could take the upper hand making some of us become too helpful without that assistance actually being asked for! Mars here could also make us get easily angry over little things like the faulty functioning of mechanical or [...]
…the friendship Moon
The Full Moon this month falls at 22°24’ of the sign of Aquarius (antiscion 7°36 Scorpio), a Fixed, Air sign ruled by Saturn (traditional ruler) and Uranus (modern ruler).
Full Moons are times of harvest and completion
when things concerning the house in the natal chart with Aquarius on its cusp can’t possibly get any better or any worse for that matter.
This Full Moon has four planets in Leo (Mercury, Sun, Venus and Mars) which could easily be seen as a riotous playground full of mischief with each planet wanting to be seen and appreciated in its own way [...]
On the very same day as Jupiter stations direct at 14°30’ Sagittarius (antiscion 15°30’ Capricorn) Uranus stations retrograde at 6°36’ Taurus (23°24’ Leo).
Jupiter direct: Jupiter in its home sign has given us an opportunity over the last four months to turn inwards and gain deeper insights into spiritual or philosophical issues since our wisdom will have been able to flow with more ease from the subconscious to the conscious self. Now the planet will proceed in forward motion entering the sign of Capricorn on December 2nd this year.
We associate Jupiter, the first of the [...]
