God Is In The Detail/Hello Virgo

The phrase “God is in the detail” is a old saying that asks us to be careful and thorough in execution because details matter. If a Virgo-3-Virgo sun didn’t think of this then someone with heavy Virgo energy must have figured this out. Unlike Capricorn which deals in practical advancement (cardinal earth) and Taurus which deals with practical sustainment (fixed earth), Virgo engages in practical refinement (mutable earth).

Virgo season is upon us. Here is a run down of the current planetary postions

  • Sun- 0 degrees Virgo
  • Moon – 15 degrees Sagittarius
  • Mercury- 25 degrees Virgo
  • Venus- 17 degrees Leo (retrograde)
  • Mars- 9 degrees Leo
  • Jupiter- 2 degrees Virgo
  • Saturn- 28 degrees Scorpio
  • Uranus- 20 degrees Aries (retrograde)
  • Neptune- 8 degrees Pisces (retrograde)
  • Pluto- 13 degrees Capricorn (retrograde)

The way information is processed on a larger scale is colored by Virgo energy so precision is a necessity, however a certain amount of grace is allotted in our relationships due to Venus moving backwards thru Leo. The sun is moving away from a square aspect to Saturn and moving closer to an exact conjunct aspect with Jupiter. At large, we are feeling our ability to be optimistic grow. Looking at the small pieces may not make us so frustrated and emotionally heavy anymore. Faith goes a long way in giving us the energy and push we need to do another double check.

Virgo energy is not for the faint of heart. It begins a process of refinement that requires precision and stamina to endure. After the party and the pomp and circumstance of Leo exits stage left someone needs to be there to clean the mess, mend the curtains,virgo_knight___at_with_stolvezen_by_dameodessa-d6w24bz and freshen up. We all should take steps to ensure that  the virgin’s energy does not get out of hand. It is one thing to try and fine tune things but we need to remember that perfection is unattainable. Nervous energy needs an outlet and redirecting Virgo’s energy away from that quest for perfection is sometimes needed. The house that Virgo rules can let you know about the area of your life that could benefit from more scrutiny and detail work. Enact a bit of “get right” and let the virgin work their magic in your life.

**Interestingly, the “proverb” is most often attributed to two men whom both have Mars in Virgo although no one knows the exact source**

July Full Moon – Blue Moon, I Saw You Standing Alone

This evening, we’re beginning to experience a Blue Moon. At 6:47am ET, the moon will be in Aquarius, opposite the sun in Leo. Also, every outer/group/global planet will either already be in retrograde motion or preparing to start. Add in Venus moving backward from Virgo into Leo and I think this is a good time for some me time. A critical eye turned towards how and where you interact with others and the world at large is an important step you should take before you start creatively paring back and trimming the fat.

Aquarius gives a detached bend to our emotional reactions, while we may consciously try to strive for what is best for self first. Pride needs to be examined either way because it is a sticking point with that Leo/Aquarius axis.

Is going forward from a place of detachment really the answer for where our plan for the next month or so should take us? Or should we be willing to get creative with self love and how we shine our light for the world to see?

It can happen. Umi said so.

Capricorn Full Moon July 2015

I’ll keep this relatively short and sweet
cap
Full moon (peak of short-term plans and emotional fulfillment) tonight in Capricorn (sign of cardinal earth- enterprising, respect driven, authoritative) at 10:20. Sun (consciousness and hero self) is opposite it in Cancer (sign of cardinal water- nurturing, domestic, emotionally driven) of course. The Moon forms a conjunction with retrograde Pluto (body of unearthing and rending for transformation) in Capricorn. Mars (body of ego and survival) sits near the Sun in Cancer.

  • Do you continue to search for what emotionally gives you comfort or do you move towards what give you fulfillment on a practical level?
  • How do you find balance between your traditional roles and new relationships that challenge you?
  • Is the draw of changing public roles and fame more important than your drive to set down roots at home?

It’s a battle of the traditional mother and father. Who will win? The child who loves and opens themselves to the best of both figures

Gemini New Moon 2015- What A Tangled Web We Weave

New moon today. Be careful of the verbal seeds you’re sowing, especially with this one occurring in the sign of the storyteller, Gemini. Of course as a new moon it is connected to the purest idea we have of self, the Sun, but it is also literally backed up by the Warrior willing to fight for it, Mars. With it being in Gemini as well, the fight is a convincing PR campaign that sways hearts.

Weave a new story but gather facts as well. Find new avenues of intellectual expansion but remember to verify. Neptune is station retrograde so we think the fog has lifted but it has just slowed down before it shifts direction. This is the time it will get thickest and that means that dreams and truth will converge but not in neat little boxes. Speak truthfully and slowly to avoid any deception, self or otherwise, from carrying forward after this retrograde is over. That means understanding that the dreams we speak of are still just dreams for now and we are missing vital pieces in order to make them reality.

Dream and weave but know it is just a story folks. There are steps beyond speaking it into existence.

May 3rd Scorpio Full Moon- Let go to hold on

Full moon in Scorpio hits May 3rd at 11:42pm ET. Both the sun and moon will be square to Jupiter in Leo.

Full moon in Scorpio– Deep emotional attachment to hopes and dreams that you have been in the process of working on. Desire to go deeper while still holding on. Willingness to sacrifice for objectives is due to emotional connection to the end goal outweighing present circumstances.

Moon in Scorpio opposite Sun in Taurus- emotional need to connect may be at odds with conscious desire to acquire. Head and heart are at odds, mostly in areas of values and possessions. Unconscious issues with worthiness may drive us all. Find balance or get lost in the impasse.

Sun in Taurus square Jupiter in Leo–  Our desire to evaluate the material and personal possessions and values we have may be spurred on optimistic pride. Things might seem better than they are and we may look to move forward with a false sense of security. Patience is needed to sort thru issues.

Moon in Scorpio square Jupiter in Leo– our emotional connection to the people and things we hold dear may be clouded by optimism. Our excitement over small gains may spur us to go to far. Giving too much without considering the long term consequences may inspire us to plot revenge later. Temper optimisim with realistic thinking to avoid overindulgence.

The Incredible Hulk Syndrome- Aries New Moon April 2015

If you feel a bit like you’ve been walking an emotional high wire, you’re not alone. The new moon will happen at 2:57 pm Eastern at 28 degrees of Aries.

We might feel ourselves holding our breathe to keep ourselves in check emotionally. Asserting ourselves when we feel ourselves being emotionally threatened may occur. We might even be in a situation where we find ourselves scrambling for a new way to be our old self. It’s cool though. Or rather, stay cool.

Keeping a cool head is a definite good idea. Remembering that the core of who we are won’t change is a good piece of advice to hold onto in these choppy New moon in Aries waters. Also remember that Aries doesn’t handle fear well. Aries often inspires us to run forward when fear overtakes because it would rather take action than be seen as a coward. I’m not suggesting you run but a moderately placed walk away from your fears and the old might be a good idea.

Walk around. Smell the roses, the perfume, the diesel fuel, whatever floats your boat. Soon you’ll see that you’ve covered miles of new terrain by just focusing on the small things that make you happy. Seems like a great way to start the transition into Taurus Sun Season.

You can always schedule a consultation to get a personal understanding of how this new moon will affect you. Til then, be cool.
