The light has shifted here in the foothills of the Rockies. Geese are calling. Hummingbirds have begun their migration to faraway places in warmer climes. Grasses are swaying. Whispers of Autumn are getting louder in my ears. I put on long underwear for the first time since last winter.
The Moon is darkening as she turns NEW in the mutable Earth sign of Virgo on September 14. 5 planets are moving retrograde. Mercury is stationing DIRECT, preparing to move forward after a topsy-turvy retrograde period that might have caught you up in some planetary mischief. I know I have been returning items left and right. Glad I am a keeper of receipts.
Be like the grasses. Let the breezes blow through you but not dislodge you from your anchoring on Earth. Let your seeds of ideas, dreams, and imaginings scatter about, seeing which ones to hold and which ones are to come forth at another time, if at all.
Be willing to let go of old plans to welcome the new.
With so many planets moving retrograde there is a slowing down, an imperative to contemplate, to consider, to weigh choices, before moving forward. Demands around you may make you feel rushed but do not let yourself be rushed. Slow down to the rhythm of the planets. Clarify your goals. Love on your intentions. Make plans that seem manageable. Nurture dreams. Virgo is great for helping to organize, clarify, and prioritize, Use this Virgo New Moon to help you to slow down and focus on what needs your attention, letting all other things take a back seat for now. What’s the rush anyway? You’ll get to exactly where you will get to and your job is to enjoy the ride!
