Thursday, September 1, 2016 - New Moonin Virgo

New Moon Phase: set intentions for the new lunar month/reset previous intentions

Moon in Virgo

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Shodashi, Goddess Who Aligns Us With Our Highest and Best, Goddess of Beauty

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Kathe, God of the South

Skill:  see the blessings in your life; see if the glass is half full; embrace course corrections

Catalysts for Change:  splitting, escapism, things that are hidden, not open to other options, confusion, "black and white thinking," uninterested, blaming or scapegoating, evasion

True Alignments: free and clear, taking the high road or going above and beyond, brand new realizations or inspirations, mind fog lifting (breaking patterns of mind control), becoming whole, like attracting like, attraction to the beauty of nature, something that makes your heart dance

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "two heads looking out and beyond the shadows" (seeing beyond duality/divide and conquer, integration, transcending difficulties)

Saian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (the renaissance of humanity, transcending difficulties)

The New Moon in Virgo occurs today with a partial solar eclipse.  The Sabian symbol for the New Moon (and the energetic theme that will unfold during the entire lunar month) is 10 Virgo: "two heads looking out and beyond the shadows."  Since eclipses "take things away," we are happy to take away a good deal of darkness this month!

At the time of the New Moon, the Earth is located at "an aviator in the clouds."  We are guided by inner "instruments" through confusion, indecision, immobility, denial, and limitations.

The Wisdom Goddess or face of Sophia on duty this month is Shodashi.  She is the teacher who "aligns" (often by drawing lines, in all senses of the term) and veers us onto proper course.  We are in lovely hands, and we are definitely not alone as we see beyond the shadows.

Neptune is in opposition (180 degrees away) from the New Moon.  Neptune is cloudy and shroudy.  It is misty and dreamy.  It is nebulous.  But it also brings the heights of CLARITY, and an opposition naturally brings the most light and balances.  In astrology, oppositions are equivalent to a Full Moon phase.  This means that Neptune will be functioning at its highest octave of enabling us to see through illusion, deception, denial, and shadow.  Neptune is discharging the energetic of "men traveling a narrow path seeking illumination," so Neptune is also naturally enlightening us right now.

Mercury and Jupiter are conjunct at the degree of "a man gaining secret knowledge from an ancient scroll he is reading."  This is a very potent combination for this degree, as Mercury delivers messages and rules our ability to understand (cognitive processes).  Jupiter rules higher education and spiritual teachings, so we are going to learn A LOT this month.

(Side note:  Regarding the "man gaining secret knowledge from an ancient scroll he is reading," check out the google image today.  It is "in honor" of the 37th anniversary of the first printing of The Never Ending Story -- because 37th anniversaries are big ones, right?  If one ever wonders how the cabal uses the Sabian symbols in the a myriad of subtle ways, look only to the google image for the day and compare it to the Sabian symbols.  Note the ouroboros, the serpent who eats its tail, around the border.  What else do you see? What mind control spell do you think these demented Illuminati are weaving?)

We can expect repeats of things this month.  This comes with Mars discharging "the groundhog looking for its SHADOW on Ground Hog's Day."  The same old ways will not work.  Since it is Mars and since the cabal has no new moves, only the same old ones, we will see them running the same plays with different players.  September 11, September 25, and September 26 are in focus.

Mars is in close connection to Saturn at the New Moon.  Saturn is discharging the energetic of "the lamp of physical enlightenment at the left temple."  What does this symbol conjure for you?  There are many, many interpretations.  Lamps and enlightenment - more light.

Even more light to see beyond the shadows comes from Venus at "the dawn of a new day reveals everything changed" at the time of the New Moon, and later moving to "a group of young people sit in spiritual communion around a campfire."  With a campfire at night and the rise of the Sun, could a dark night for humanity be beginning to coming to an end?  The answer is YES, and it has been in process for over a year.

Ready?  I think so.  Welcome to Shodashi's cycle.
