When the Sun, which represents the highest reigning authority of the day, and our transiting Moon – the instinctive receptacle to what’s being dished out at this present moment come into precise alignment in Virgo, we must acknowledge with intent – body and soul – that certain matters must be clarified, and we apply ourselves wholeheartedly to see what those things are and sort them out.

If you didn’t get that, it means it’s time to clean up your act: Be clear about what you want in your life and carefully discard what’s not working so that it doesn’t mess with you, your health and your most fundamental needs stay wonderful and true.

Contrary to popular belief with Virgo, the emphasis is not so much on finding sanctity, or sacredness, or even pristine purity as such; these the holy qualities are only found in the divine state, not in our humble human form per se. If you wish to seek divinity then you may very well fall for the greatest drama commonly associated with Virgo – the ruse that you are never quite pure enough, never clean enough, never quite ready enough to live this life at ease. The Mercury-ruled essence of this sign can negatively plague our mentality with nagging ‘imperfections’, hence never let us rest from much undue worry and anxiety.

With Virgo, what truly we aspire to achieve most in this life is to become completely human: to feel, and give, and take, and laugh, and sometimes get a little lost, if only to be found again. We want to dance, to love and lust and be as wholly human as we can, and yes, to be in touch with the divine but as its humble earthly servant, not as a slave to an ever elusive mental prison the drives us to acceding to such an elevated (and humanly unattainable) notion.

This lunation’s opposition to the distorting, diffusing Pisces Neptune only encourages the self-deluding aspirations inherent in the ‘god-like perfection’ me-reality. It adds to problems already existing, especially where little insecurities over flaws and shortcomings tend to whittle away the confidence and emotional well-being.

Everything becomes highly sensitised, and clear, accurate analysis and truthful evaluations becoming twisted, often warped and dizzied by self-created delusions over seeming ‘imperfections’ rather than real problems, or at least the true source of the problems themselves.

The event then brings up all kinds of conceited over-reactions to any criticism, even the slightest hint of being judged to be weak, dishonest or incapable of performing honourably or impeccably. This makes for unnecessarily defensive dramas, which may launch some of us into spills for expiation or atonement of ‘sins’ (whether real or imaginary). Naturally the rest of us will be drawn in, and as is prevalent in the current Saturn/Uranus climate, we are inclined to pick sides.

The classic victim/martyr complex could emerge for any incident, however minor. Oppositions to lunations generally go right through each of us, since we experience the powerfully polarising dynamic in our various kinds of relationships. This one is particularly major since it has the effect of exposing our vulnerabilities and insecurities to keenly analytical critique. Neptune dissolves walls and boundaries, or leaks through the cracks, and under doorways, causing us to react strongly against control and definition cast by others, yet will as easily submit when under the influence of a misplaced martyr trip.

Other planetary oppositions currently in the sky also align tightly with this lunation, creating a tense 8th harmonic syndrome – such as that involving the ♀ ☍ ♅ □ ♂ T-square and to a lesser extent ♂ ☍ ☊. This complex pattern of hard aspects indicates a destabilising period in all kinds of inter-gender relationships, producing intense love/hate scenarios and uncomfortably progressive ideals.

Sudden outbursts, bursting to be expressed between the sexes, often without filter and without regard to who may know about or care about exactly how one feels creates massive shockwaves.

It’s like the genie is finally out of the bottle and it is obstinately intent to run amok, for better or worse, often inspired by a misconception or triggered by long-standing feelings of victimisation and imposed sacrifices, especially with gender-based roles in relationship.

Coming to terms with such powerfully influential consequences concerning how we handle ourselves in our relationships requires us to step forward with considerable honesty and commitment. Beneficial change can be stimulated, but only if we really want it and we are willing to put in the effort. Exerting a stronger will and determination, and learning to take greater intellectual responsibility (currently subverted by emotional instability) depends on our ability to be clear about our objectives with others. All relationships take work, and the trick here is to maintain enough emotional commitment to power our intellectual and practical efforts to achieve them. Again, the rebelliousness of Uranus is the hardest element to bring under constraint here, especially since it feels it has been unfairly constrained for too long. Revolution is not out of the question, with Mars soon re-entering Aquarius and squaring.

Frustrated potentials, which may have been previously inhibited could now be given reason to finally erupt; writ large upon communities. People have had enough of feeling victimised. Whether their claims are based on actual or imagined injustices, the explosive outbursts that occur are very real, their repercussions complex and damaging toward creating a continuity of peace and harmony in our affairs.

The sextile/trine between Jupiter/Pluto also bears heavily on this lunation, offering deeper intelligence about the politics of entitlement, power and prestige. We are easily able to discern the many underlying factors driving our personal, social and cultural need for dominance. What are the motivating forces that seem to constantly require satisfying the need for status and control, often by scaling some individuals/group in increments of importance over others? Ideals run high, perhaps exorbitantly fancy and unrealistic to some degree, but still, something aspires within us to become recognised not just for our achievements, but for the many times our merits have been overlooked, belittled and besieged by lies and corruption, favouritism and selective bias, simply because we failed to meet the strict criteria of ‘choice’ as outlined this ‘cruel’ and ‘arbitrary’ patriarchal world.

If anything, this Virgo New Moon leaves us self-motivated and inspired, aspiring to live according to a high moral code (albeit our own), expecting the most impeccable ethical conduct from those in positions of authority and social responsibility. Clearly discerning our aims in life, strongly objecting to what we perceive as hypocrisy and injustice, we set an intention to honour our intention to improve this world, take steps to renew ourselves and our respective relationships, protect ourselves from being negatively influenced by surrounding environmental influences entering our psyche.

Working with types of meditation (not medication) which help strip away illusory constructs of the ego, seeking counselling or relationship therapies, finding way to reconnect to nature and working with the earth and the environment are perhaps the most appropriate step to help cleanse ourselves of the negative, more disruptive effects of the outer-planetary energies, allowing the light of our co-ordinating Sun centre to shine through more powerfully in this Virgo lunation.

Blessings, and have an amazing New Moon xx
