New moon exact 27 degrees 27 mins of Virgo Sept 19 2017 10:29 pm PDT
This is a very important new moon. All the personal energies are uniting in Virgo, creating the 1st new beginning cycle after the historical great american eclipse. There has been a lot of theatrics, drama and changes as of late. It's now time to clean up the mess in your Virgo area of life. New energy, new methods and processes. New desire for better routine and practical activity. Getting past confusion, doubts and uncertainty, however, won't be so easy. Being logical, practical, organized and disciplined is hard when Neptune is opposite all this Virgo. Plus Saturn is at difficult right angle to both Neptune and nm, while Uranus is inconjunct new moon. This Virgo nm will create desire to distinguish fact from fiction in all areas of your life and in the world around you.
Neptune opposition shows this will be an imaginative and creative cycle. However, there's insecurity, fears, doubts, even paranoia, victimhood, or withdrawing from others because you might suspect ppl's kind motives for secret plots to take advantage of you. Shit like that can crop up with Neptune opposition. Distinguishing fact from fiction will be important, but challenging because Mercury is exactly opposite Neptune at time of new moon.
There's sensitivity, it's easier to be naive to the point where you're being unrealistic with your plans. It can go other way too; doubting yourself and your abilities.The moon moves into Libra a few hrs later followed by the sun couple days later bringing the fall equinox. There needs to be greater balance between the extremes of half truths, fact vs fiction, retreat vs responsibility, etc, etc. There is a lot of good ol fashion bullshit coming at us from all directions. This new beginning is a final sorting out, of everything. This is also true with imagination and creativity vs what's logical and practical. Make sure you're not self sabotaging, or undermining other people, getting distracted, or among a number of other unhealthy expressions of this Neptune opposition.
This kind of energy is best used (imo) as starting a new routine for art, music, writing, dancing, photography, film, etc etc. Basically anything that you can make good use of Neptune in a practical healthy way so that energy won't undermine you in unhealthy ways.
People are extra sensitive and vulnerable now (Mercury opposite Neptune), being nit-picky and critical won't help motive anyone.
At same time tho, some folks will take that too far, thinking everyone is trying to exploit someone or something. There might be a lot of suspicious, critical judgmental attitudes. With Neptune opposition, it's easier to take that personal, letting the thoughts, opinions and energy of others affect you greatly to the point where it debilitates you, and your plans or goals. We all have different paths and points of view. We don't have to fight for our personal truth. No one can take that away. You live it everyday. Fuck what other people say.
Health (especially for Aries Rising ppl) is also something that needs to get cleaned up, organized and disciplined in this cycle. The health of whatever your Virgo house represents. Problem is, that illusive Neptune opposition adds complications to that process. It could be hard to find the health issue, if you have one, despite feeling sick or depleted. Or maybe you don't actually have a health issue and you're just trippin from that Neptune opposition or transit (cough: Libra rising). It's best to find what's dragging your health down. Be honest about what that is.
Not feeling motivated, feeling low energy, escaping routine and responsibility; depression, disappointments, addictions, doubts, sensitivities, insecurities, unrealistic fantasies, and illusions are all possibilities of the negative holding you back in this moon cycle. We want to get grounded, practical and wise, seeing thru illusions.
It's also new beginning for separating what you want from what you don't want. Diet, routine, anything that needs to be organized and accomplished is best started after this new moon.
When it comes to relationships, both Venus and Mars (the lovers) are in Virgo opposite Neptune as well. Venus will make conjunction with Mars (aka doin it) in few weeks which will be a new beginning for the lovers cycle. Until then the cleaning up of your love life energy is about letting go of what's no longer serving you from this last year's cycle. This won's be easy because of hidden Neptune alignment. There's been a lot of secret hidden relationship activity this last year. Confusion, deception and lies. Not being totally honest with self and others. Secretive motives, agendas, wearing rose colored glasses, only seeing what you wanted to see. Disillusionment and disappointments are common when there is unrealistic expectations. All this type of stuff is the negative side of Neptune opposition.
The closer Venus gets to Mars next several days opp Neptune adds sexual energy, desire, fantasy but not everything is as it appears to be. So no fooling around, or i should say, no fooling yourself. Deceptive actions or unhealthy escapism is possible in the coming days. Using this for making love, art, music, imagination, creativity, etc, etc is best. You'll need Neptune energy in whatever you start or it can be used against you in ways you didn't want.
We about to enter the divine season of Libra. This puts a big emphasis on relationships, and your Libra area of life. We'll have a Libra new moon next cycle. Until then, it's about starting to focus on those relationships and how you can better organize and clean up any problems.
The annoying inconjunct aspect to Uranus just keeps a level of instability to this cycle. Despite earth energy, plans and lists, things will come up unexpected that require adjustments. Some days all the grounded practical earth energy will get thrown out and radical, freedom loving rebellion gets in. It will be seesaw effect between sticking to the plan vs impulsiveness and adjusting to the unexpected. Neptune and Uranus influence could be more radical water or weather related events. Illusive illnesses possible too - gas leaks, disease out-beaks, and so on.
Jupiter in late Libra is building opposition with Uranus next several weeks which amps up the war, social, political and legal fronts in the world. Some radical oppositions in personal relationships if it aligns with you.
Pluto slows to station direct which also brings more intensity and explosive life changing events. Deep inner changes of the last several months have had big affect and now move you direct in new powerful but empowering ways.(very slowly).
Saturn in Sagittarius is still at a difficult angle. Nothing changes there. All the heavy stuff you've been dealing with will be here for the rest of 2017. When Saturn leaves Sag, you'll feel it and love to see it go. Until then watch for downer energy if you have Mutable placements. Everything you feel right now can be explained by your personal transits and progressions. Nothing stays the same forever. Phases come and go. Saturn phase isn't known for uplift. If you're under Saturn phase - Keep the faith, things will change even more in 2018 and you'll be past this last two years.
I hope the new moon info was helpful. There is a good amount of grounded logical energy but Neptune connected to Mercury doesn't make it pure Virgo. Enjoy.
