Outer planets and Virgo stellium trine Uranus, August 24th reflection // Longer term transits are teaching us about integrity, personal responsibility, and working towards the restructuring of our lives and communities👊🤝. (+ parenting ourselves, evolving masculine and feminine archetype consciousness). We can no longer continue what isn’t working; Saturn and Pluto appear to say “No more.” 🤚At the same time, collective and base ambitions for power and control are also intensifying. 👀 Assign that powerful energy to be the authority of conscious wisdom in your life. Celebrate and use your gifts. Our sense of faith and mysticism (or escapism) is also being expanded. Weary of blind righteousness. Beliefs may be inspired and based in compassion, AND we can become lost if we don’t relate to our everyday reality and humility. 👁 Here is where this Virgo season perks my interest >>> ⚡️⚡️⚡️we have an opportunity to consider the plan. How are we going to nurture the long term, how are we going to nurture the now? In all of your planning, remember that Uranus celebrates the wisdom of now, the magic of perception. While you look for ways to prioritize and construct, touch in with the physical body, health, and your deeper allegiances right now. That powerful Neptune-Jupiter square can inspire faith as well as indulge blindness, inflated justice, and denial. Where are our beliefs making us blind? As we expand remember the wisdom of the hermit. They who paint and sit between sky, pine, and rock to know fear and the feats and failings of humanity. Let’s start where we are and and imagine. We (humanity) can/must envision innovative solutions and possibilities. This Virgo season we might have special insight into our work, into our service to the earth. Indulge in your appreciation of nature, the sacred, magic, innovation and mystery. < For now, take careful stock of your priorities and health. > See the big picture that the earth is calling on us to come together, not in fear but in ⚡️inspired transformation⚡️. Take responsibility, too for your vision; we are co-creators, are we not? 👩🏼🎤Mount or dismount at any given moment.
The New Moon in Libra forms on October 8th at 8:47 PM PDT closely conjunct Ceres, the earth mother goddess. During this lunar period, pay special attention to nurturing harmony in your relationships, and stay conscious that intense energies from an ancient cellular unconscious are here and seek integration. To do this, we will need to celebrate and respect the spirit of Libra. Nourish the gentleness and vulnerability in yourself and others. Uplift and beautify your living spaces. Discover ways to connect with the equanimity and spaciousness intrinsic to your mind and heart. Draw on inspiration, such as Monet’s water lilies, friendship, fresh perspective, and the wisdom to tolerate paradox. Seek fairness and justice as you relate to those close to you and know that we are doing the difficult work of healing our hearts this month, so Libra’s connection to balance and fairness is important. As we are empowering deep shifts this lunar period, bring consciousness to every day combined with an aspiration to be of benefit to this earth and all beings.
As the New Moon forms with Ceres, the earth mother goddess, we are connected on a deep level with our desire to nurture and receive nourishment. Wherever we may experience obstacles to doing so we may experience grief, resentment, and outrage or anger. Ceres’ myth centers around the abduction of her daughter Persephone by Hades/Pluto, so the grief and outrage we are witnessing on a collective level in response to the disempowerment and abuse of the feminine is a part of her story. Ultimately, she can guide us to our innate ability to give and receive nourishment, but along the way we will undoubtedly experience her wrath or the resentment and controlling-ness that are a part of her shadow.
In the spirit of Libra, we must bring consciousness and gentle respect to all sides of every story, including to those who disappoint and hurt us. Libra reminds us to nurture tolerance, fairness, justice, and intrinsic harmony despite any tumult on personal or collective levels. Look out for how Ceres is showing up for you on a personal level. What aspect of your relationships need nourishment and perspective? Where can your ability to tolerate paradox support harmony and where might inattentiveness and evasion be blinding you to what you or your loved ones really need?
While we are relating to our hearts and relationships this month (Venus is also retrograde in Scorpio), we can by doing our personal work help to shift the paradigms that define our world. The more we can open our hearts to Ceres’ grief, we will learn to give and receive nourishment and blessing. I will also mention that Uranus shows up this month as an essential guide and potential distraction. Stay open to unexpected knowledge, insight, and change that is unburdened by grief, or anything related to the past. Our individual perspective and insight will ultimately be what presses forward our vision and path. Cut through the tendency to manipulate victimization (we are seeing this everywhere right now). Instead, let these low level patterns fall flat while Uranus and Chiron in Pisces guide our deeper spiritual healing and soulful connection with spirit and vision. The North Node in Leo asks we perform our unique light and expression, let the unexpected be your guide.
Uranus into Taurus ushers in the wisdom, strength, and vision of the feminine in our world. Everywhere women are speaking up and realizing their value. With an exact square from Mars, we may encounter clashes, conflict, a sense of impulsiveness, especially in the first few weeks of this major transit. Uranus will be revolutionizing our lives in the sign of Taurus through 2026 however. May we harness this energy for our creative purposes and healing, may we not resist but embrace all, accommodating every side and voice.
We are learning to listen from the silence within, a place of music, life and wonder.
We can practice sensing embodied experience, sensuality, and the simplicity of the physical present. As we embrace uncertainty in each arising experience, we indulge a dance of grace and surrender.
Heightened energy can spur creative insightful solutions and conscious growth. Accommodation dignifies space and love.
The New Moon in Taurus tunes us to the calls and magic of Mother Earth. We live in a sensual, alive world. This month the New Moon touches the most hidden dimensions of collective consciousness, insisting we relate to our soulful purposes: What do we value? What motivates us? What are we working towards in our lives and communities? Can we trust the answers prepared by spirit and experienced in the physical? Taurus guides us in a dance with our sense perceptions. Our doorways to life.
Stay mindful of where comforts, security, and worldly goals may mask more sacred longings or unacknowledged need. Watch for escapism. We can learn instead to trust our alive hearts and bodies. Uranus will challenge any sense of too comfortable comfort, and spur awareness, new beginnings, opportunities, and the revolution of all things Taurean: earthy and feminine in nature. The planet too calls for our love and protection, of course.
As we learn our worth and listen to the messages of nature, the New Moon cycle will support our activities this month. We can supplicate the wisdom of the earth, to help ground our most soulful purposes. The support we need is here.
Remember that wherever we most treasure security, Uranus will shake loose our habitual hooks. Embrace this renewal. We are receiving insight from our highest consciousness to revolutionize the domain of Taurus in our personal charts.
Uranus is connected with technology, television, groups, rebellion, and new systems to support the future. We can use technology to uplift our lives. We can embrace uncertainty. When we remember, we might surrender to the next mind moment. Let your mission include the benefit of all. Harness the power of collective and technology when it inspires you, mindful of when intuition calls you to discriminate.
While Uranus supports our most creative and profound vision, there is work to be done. We might sense a creative tension between our readiness for consciousness and devotion to pragmatism and structure. We need both. We can honor our genuine need for realism. Embrace disruptive energy to let creative conflict ignite action and graceful, intelligent solutions. Maintain humor and a willingness to surrender stubbornness. Let the supportive, earthy, and feminine Taurean spirit inspire your inner confidence and serenity.
We are called to realize an awareness of magic in our lives. The sensual, nature, animals, our bodies, sense of value, love, beauty, music, generosity, and subtle layers of inner and outer experience will guide us.
