Virgo Moon – Reorientation Phase

Are you ready for change? Just hours before the sun joins Mercury (communication) and Saturn (structure) in Sagittarius, giving expansive/optimistic energy to communicating and bringing into existence our visions, the moon enters Virgo … the space where the last Solar Eclipse assisted us in imprinting our personal truth into the collective consciousness. Over the next several days we are given the opportunity to balance our aspirations for the future and with what we believe to be TRUE about ourselves/the world.

There will be an inevitable dissolution of past conditions, through the Virgo Moon forming opposition to the recently direct Neptune/South Node (fear) and moving toward alignment with the North Node (destiny) of the moon … a time to practically apply what we’ve transformed over these last degrees of Scorpio. All will be assisted by a trine with Pluto (regeneration) and our love (Venus) in useful Capricorn and a square to Saturn/Mercury in Sagittarius pulling us toward a hopeful future.

Throughout the entire Virgo lunar transit we have Jupiter highlighting the imbalances in the practical application of love (square Pluto/Venus conjunct in Capricorn) and how our identity disrupts our relationships (opposite Aries in Uranus). Those scales will receive a fair amount of counter-balance through having integrity while communicating our personal truths (Saturn/Mercury conjunct in Sagittarius forming a t-square with the Moon/Uranus) and we will be given an extra boost to ‘walk our talk’ and ‘right the scales’ with Mars in Aquarius forming a sextile to Saturn/Mercury in Sagittarius and a trine to Jupiter in Libra.

With these powerful energies at our backs, over the next couple days we are being asked to review our intentions with regards to our personal truth (Virgo Moon) and faith (Sagittarius Sun). This phase is commonly referred to as the ‘crisis of consciousness’, where you recognize how far you have, or have not, come, and wonder … what needs to change to make the difference? AND are challenged with taking the actions necessary to bridge the gap.

The sun is the source of creative energy, forming our conscious mind, and while in the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius we explore new horizons, seeking truth, with perseverance and optimism. Our nature is expansive. We see opportunity and are energized by the journey … rather than the end result. A vision of what is possible motivates us outside our comfort zones and our joy radiates from within. We are drawn to aim higher and have the drive to manifest our dreams.

The moon is the conduit to the subconscious and is activated by the sun’s energy to shape our perceptions from the beliefs stored in that space. Those beliefs have been planted there every new moon throughout our lives (all history) by our energetic state and what we were emoting. Both on an individual and collective level. Collectively, the subconscious experience of Virgo is productive activity. We operate with purpose, our rational minds lead, and we accomplish tasks with ease. So long as we keep our critical thoughts to a minimum.

Remember, individually all of the energies you experience are focused through the imprint made at your birth by the presence of planets, their aspects, and the house placement within each sign … from both the sun (Sagittarius) and the moon (Virgo). The resonance of that energy is determined by your beliefs, emoted with each new moon, whether they were created intentionally, or not … and the manifestations of those energies will occur in your life according to the houses.

These energetic influences apply to both the sun (conscious mind) and the moon (unconscious perception) for the next two days. They shape our experience and give us access to bringing our energetic being into alignment with a higher state. They reveal our beliefs through what is playing out in our lives. Giving us an opportunity to be responsible for, and intentionally transform, them through the activity of each phase.

Currently, we are reorientating. We are identifying all that has arisen to take us out of our comfort zone since we initiated our intentions at the Virgo Solar Eclipse defining our personal truth on August 31, 2016 and our visions for the future at the last Sagittarius New Moon on December 11, 2015. These intentions will show up in areas of life the house(s) Virgo/Sagittarius rule in your birthprint, expressed through the element of the moon (earth = practicality), and fueled further with the energy of any planets and the aspects activated in that space at the time of your birth.

During this Reorientating Moon Phase, we review what is manifesting, or not. We step outside of our consciousness and note where our view and/or experience of life has transformed. We take note of what needs to change to have our reality become aligned with our intentions.

How has the expression of truth in your life expanded over the last several months? In what ways has the last year transformed your vision of the future … your trajectory in life? This is a powerful time to analyze, to perfect, and achieve improvements.

These next ~2 days are when tangible results have the potential to manifest! A time where we simultaneously have the opportunity to reap what we’ve sown and be responsible for the bounty it may, or may not, be. The reaping of anything requires action and these days are the time to invest in … or come home empty handed. An opportunity to reach, to be bold, to do what you know you have to … to bring your intentions to life.
