This is an interesting week as we head toward the Virgo New Moon early on Friday morning. The few days before each New Moon should be thought of as The Dark of The Moon, a time to rest and go inward. This is also a week of excitement and unexpected changes. Venus, Mars, the Sun, and Mercury all form flowing Trine aspects to Uranus, the planet of sudden shifts in direction, epiphanies, and innovation. We may find that we want more freedom and are willing to take more risks than usual. With Venus trine Saturn on Sunday, things should work out just fine.
Please keep in mind that your personal transits can override these more universal ones. A personal consultation offers deep understanding.

A RISK FOR LOVE OR BEAUTY
The week begins with the Moon in protective Cancer keeping your emotional focus on family, sensitivity, and moodiness. Yet the trine formed from Venus to Uranus at 11:38 AM EDT urges you to seek exciting changes regarding something that you value.
You long for more stimulation and excitement in your romantic relationships and friendships. Venus represents the things that we most value. Generally speaking, we value love, resources (money & possesions), and beauty. You may long for wild change in relationship, or you may want to buy a new updated and unique wardrobe or create a wildly unusual piece of art.
The status quo is not going to satisfy you today. A new love interest could develop quickly under this influence. Keep in mind that a relationship starting now may not be stable and could end as quickly as it begins. Don’t let that stop you from having a ton of fun while it lasts!

WEARING YOUR HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE
The Cancer Moon remains until evening when she enters Leo at 7:54 PM EDT. For the bulk of the day you can expect to remain focused on emotional needs of safety, security, and belonging. Because the Moon ‘rules’ Cancer, don’t be surprised that everyone’s tender emotions are very close to the surface. This is a day to keep family connections, self care, and kindness as your top priorities. Happiness will come with close familial connections and domestic activities. Nurture yourself and your loved ones.
When the Moon enters Leo this evening a more playful nature comes forth that will hold sway for the next few days. It is time to shake off deep emotion in exchange for fun and creativity. A romantic connection before bedtime is the perfect way to make this shift.
The Cancer Moon is void-of-course from 4:56 AM EDT until she enters Leo at 7:54 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

A RUSH OF ADRENALINE
The day begins with a lovely flowing trine aspect from assertive Mars to wildly unique Uranus. It is time to let your freak flag fly! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUFPWW7IqCU
Look around and you will see that you are not alone. There is a strong desire to break free of restrictions and boring routines. You are ready to let your hair down and take a risk or two. Don’t do the same old things today/ this week. Go someplace new, speak to folks you’ve never spoken to before, find new experiences to explore. Your mind is open to ideas and ways of understanding that may surprise you.
With the Moon in Leo, this may be a dramatic and boisterous day. Don’t go straight home after work. Hire a babysitter if necessary, go out dancing. The Leo Moon encourages dramatic self-expression and playful creativity. You will want to be seen and appreciated for your most unique qualities.
Go ahead and take a creative risk, allow others to see a part of you that you normally keep under wraps.
The Leo Moon is void-of-course from 8:07 PM EDT until she enters Virgo tomorrow evening. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

FLASHES OF INSIGHT
In the early morning hours, Mercury, the planet of thought and communication joins with the Sun, Mars, and Venus already in Virgo. This puts Virgo Season in highest gear.
While in Virgo, Mercury brings precision and meticulous care to thoughts and speech. You are more analytical in your thinking and more judgy toward how others express themselves. Approach others with a good dose of compassion and kindness to keep a cap on your judgemental tendencies
For most of the day, the Moon continues through Leo. Use the careful thinking of Mercury in Virgo to support the expression of creativity. Find a creative way to use your words. Write a children’s story for your child or grandchild.
The Moon joins the crowd of planets already gathered in Virgo at 7:57 PM EDT.
At 11:14 PM EDT the Virgo Sun forms a trine aspect to excitable Uranus. Even with so many planets in practical Virgo, it is unlikely that you will be chugging along accomplishing tidy, meticulous chores. Watch for quirky dreams tonight and possibly excitement and epiphanies tomorrow. You may have trouble sleeping under this influence. If so, get up and do some writing. Get the flashes of insight and self-discovery down on paper. Again, look to the houses that hold Virgo and Taurus in your chart for clues.
The Leo Moon is void-of-course until she enters Virgo at 7:57 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

BALANCE YOUR QUIRKS WITH PRACTICALITY – VIRGO NEW MOON
With the excitement of the Sun trine Uranus still with us from last night, we reach the Virgo New Moon at 6:38 AM EDT. Each New Moon follows several days of the Dark of the Moon, a time of inward silent development. At the New Moon, we plant a seed for future growth. Do your New Moon ritual late in the day or even tomorrow. You may feel pulled in several directions today. On the one hand, the Virgo Moon wants you to focus on practicality and efficient service to others. On the other, the Sun trine Uranus encourages you to take risks and express something unusual or unique.
Find a way to balance these desires. Explore unusual ideas in a practical way. And don’t forget your New Moon Ritual!
~Virgo New Moon Ritual ~ Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in this Moon Cycle. The Virgo New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of meticulous anyalysis and practicality. Have two candles available. Light the first to represent yourself, as you are right now. Light the second candle as inspiration for what you the change you want to create. Take a moment to focus as you light each candle, imagine drawing the change toward you as you physically bring the two candles closer together. Do this each day for two weeks. At the Gemini Full Moon (September 14) bring the candles fully together and acknowledge what you have created.

A HOLIDAY OF WORK AND EFFORT – LABOR DAY
It makes sense that the holiday we celebrate during Virgo Season is a celebration of effort and work. If you are attending gatherings or parties, you can find many practical details to make the event successful. Plenty of effort goes into the preparations and the after-party clean-up. The tasks involved, and being of service to others, may bring more satisfaction than the party itself.
The Virgo Moon helps you chug along doing practical chores and getting things done efficiently. Keep your expectations reasonable and curb the tendency to be critical of yourself and others.
At 7:08 PM EDT the Moon enters diplomatic beauty-oriented Libra. Now the socializing will comes more easily. The Libra Moon supports romantic or diplomatic endeavors, socializing, or creating art. As you interact with others, remember that everyone will be more cooperative this evening. Face any challenging issues with dispassionate objectivity. Libra asks that you put cooperation ahead of other considerations. Face internal and external work with grace and decorum.
The Virgo Moon is void-of-course from 4:46 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 7:08 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

WILD THOUGHTS BALANCE STABLE LOVE
Today is an exciting day with two lovely trine aspects bringing a flow to mental intensification even as love and values are stabilized. The Moon is in Libra suggesting an undercurrent of pleasure and ease in social situations.
The Morning brings Mercury trine Uranus which excites your thinking. This will open your mind to new possibilities as it brings unusual, intense, and interesting conversations to the table. You may receive communications that startle and electrify your system. With an open mind you can make new friends that will challenge, illuminate, and change your thinking.
This afternoon brngs another trine, this one from Venus to Saturn. Consider long-term financial and relationship plans. You will need to balance the wild ideas in your mind with a practical conservative approach to love and money. Let your thinking be wild even as you are steady, loyal, and stable with love and money.
* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.
aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines,
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
