New Moon in Virgo

September 5, 2013 6:36am CDT


New Moon June


Do we remember why we read these New Moon letters? Sometimes I ask why I write them every month. I wonder what pushes me to do this and what urges the reader to actually read them.

It’s a VIRGO thang. (yes, yes… that’s for emphasis)

Virgo is internally VERY mental and they’re productive, unless they get caught in a worm hole. They love rolling mental stuff around. I do hope these letters make you think… I certainly rack my brain over them. But unlike the sometimes out-of-control mental overload of Gemini, also ruled by Mercury, Virgo’s use of Mercury is for INTEGRATION whereas Gemini’s use of Mercury is pure unadulterated curiosity. Virgo seeks integration as in, does this fit, is this in sync and – Uh oh… Is this perfect?

Borrowing a line from my New Moon on Virgo letter last September, “The Universe blesses you doing your best... If there is perfection, it’s YOU being fully aware and in process. Ease up.” Even the Universe is still in process.

Centered in process we sense our apprenticeship to ‘the highest’ source – we are in training. And it’s not so much about what we need to learn as it is about what we need to release.

Virgo energy reminds us to slow down and to rest our bodies, and our spirit, and our minds. Health, diet, and sleep are major concerns when Virgo energy is called upon. Ever notice when you just can’t finish a project ‘right’ and you push away and take a walk or lie down – in pops the answer to the dilemma, and renewed you return to the project and voila, dare I say ‘perfection’? I’ve read that when we open ourselves to spirit – the third eye is activated. That’s integration.

The reminder this month with the Virgo New Moon is INTEGRATION – BODY – MIND – SPIRIT. Just slow it down. There’s no race. It’s perfectly honorable to run a tight ship – but if the body is tight, if the mind is tight.....spirit gets squeezed out. One big breath and one slow release can do it. Let’s see, hmm do I have time for that today?
