New Moon in Virgo – August 2014

zodiac__virgo_and_pisces_by_alkven-d5ia22xAlthough we are not yet in September, we have this new moon in Virgo and like all lunations we are bombarded by these incredible energies that connect us with dimensions beyond our everyday understanding of our consciousness.
Many times people ask me: “ but what will this new moon DO to ME? No one can give you the answer except you. These energies which invade your whole body, what kind of issues are guiding you to? What has been happening these days in your life? do questions manifest in your mind? What sensations you are feeling? what topics are moved these days?
This Lunation in Virgo with the Sun and the Moon at 2 ° Virgo18′, is formed in opposition to Neptune at about 6º of Pisces ,like last September, but of course, the rest of the planets have progressed, have moved, making this new moon quite unique, like most lunation’s.
As we have seen repeatedly the angularity Piscis-Virgo brings our attention to our eternal dilemma of finding a balance between the spiritual, the Ethereal, the Divine, with the ordinary, the body, matter. Piscis-Virgo angle comes to life for me, in the coming of Christ. God taking human form in a simple Carpenter born from María and José, two ordinary people. The intervention of the Holy Spirit, I leave it in your hands. This symbol of the divine embodied in a mortal body, is the clearmessage, the answer we are looking for in this human life. Zen says: “this earth- that‘s the way“ and Robert A.Johnson says: “the path to enlightenment, the soul, is not through the clouds, denying the Earth. It is in mortal life, the simplicity of the mundane tasks and our relationship with normal, ordinary people. All of this is described in the “Incarnation”.
This Moon is a good time to meditate about it. Whenever we find ourselves disillusioned with friends, acquaintances, teachers, co-workers, family,for their ‘ordinary’ “human” actions, separating us, as if we were somewhat higher, superior, we are disregarding our own humanity. PISCES and Neptune is that part of our psyche that tell us that where we are all ONE, and the most obvious part where we are all ONE, is in our humanity, no matter what religious ideology, education, social class you belong to. We all are born, we grow, reproduce and die, whatever your position on this planet.
The Virgo part of this equation is what helps us differentiate ourselvThe fantastic image of Virgo-Piscis is by Alkven on DevianARTes, despite being all one. It drives us to seek ways to express those qualities that distinguish me from others in the best possible way. But we can not escape despite ourdifferences, our humanity. Virgo also encourages us to put our efforts and knowledge to the service of others. But curiously,in this desire to serve, Virgo finds its dark nature, which struggle to accept their normality.
Returning to the Encarnación of Christ, this reminds us that God became Man. It tells us that the Divinity and Humanity are the same thing. This duality lives in our psyche and it is our duty to respect and to connect with both. Be aware of these two parts of human nature. If we refuse one, then we will project it onto others. If what we project is our divine part, then we will fall in love and worship him/her/that where we put our projection. If we project our mortal part, then we sneer at those that remind us that we are that. Human. If we can see both dimensions on the other or others, then we will establish real relationships based on acceptance and true love. If we only love the divine in another, that is called “falling in love” and this incredible feeling always fades after a while, when the human part of the other starts to become apparent. If we love only the human side, then we don’t see the best in the other, his/her divinity.
In this new moon, Mercury, ruler of Virgo is in opposition to Chiron, also in Pisces, indicating where our deepest wound lies and the possibility of bringing it into consciousness. Venus, in turn, from Leo, hungover from its conjunction to Jupiter, which just fading aaa, is with the exact square to the Mars-Saturn conjunction in Scorpio, helping us to meditate on the reality of our personal relationships. What it is that we see in the other, which does not satisfy us? do I attribute my dissatisfaction with my life to the other? Do I look for on the other that which I need to be happy? or should I look inside me and grant my soul the possibility to guide us on the path to personal fulfillment?
No one can guide us toward our realization, only us, if we learn to listen to the directions of our own soul. Use this moon in Virgo, to ponder on this and try to meditate on what needs to take shape in your life, to evolve, to be happier and more at peace with yourself.
