New Moon In Virgo On The Way

The weather dude on the radio just mentioned the New Moon making things worse for this “perfect storm,” Hurricane Irene. We all know about the moon and tides but rarely do we (I) think of it so literally and how it affects us. Still, I smiled at astrology on the radio!

I’ve got work today and this morning I just bought my supplies: water, canned food, cat food, litter, toilet paper :) Who knows? Could be nothing or I could be stuck. There’s a big big tree in my backyard. There are big big trees in the front yard. Ugh.

Our Mass Transit is suspending service “system wide.” This has only ever happened on 9/11 and during the Christmas season Subway Strike (which I was here for).

So, if I have power, I’ll likely be blogging and finishing up email readings. I’ll also respond to comments later today :)

As for the stars…. Enjoy your Mercury Rx but be advised, the trickster still has to get to the very beginning of Virgo before he’s out of his shadow. Moon? End of Cancer, still sensitive, still emotional. So eat something! Leo’s up next. Sun and Venus? Virgo, yup! Mars is but one degree past Saturn, the square still in effect. Give yourself time to get it all worked out.  Jupiter? In lovely Taurus, trine Venus (Venus at 4, Jupiter at 10). The outer planets hold steady, Pluto in Capricorn trining Virgo and Taurus. Do you feel more steady? More solid?

I’ve got to head out now but please grab your coffee and a donut. Or your lo-carb, sugar free option :) Gluten-free too! Whatever it is, go get it! The New Moon is on the way. Get your chart and find your Virgo house and tell us in the comments where you’ll be cleaning, pruning, harvesting, processing, analyzing!

Pisces Needs Virgo (and vice versa)

Throughout Virgo Season, I am probably going to keep posting pictures of Keith Richards, Moon in Virgo. He was a huge childhood crush for me and when I look for his image on-line? I see pictures from magazines that I remember seeing when I was 12, 13, and so in love. Yes, love. I loved reading about his heroin-addicted past, loved reading about the making of classic Stones LPs, loved the pictures of him and his girlfriend. I had my wall covered with Rolling Stones pictures from Creem and Rolling Stone.

But (my) Venus square Neptune is a bitch. Venus in the 12th House is a double bitch. And Virgo Rising puts Pisces on my 7th House cusp. No matter where I look, no matter where I love, there’s Neptune: SACRIFICE. But what is it that we, Venus Neptune people, are giving up?

Yesterday I bought coffee for my boyfriend, in anticipation of his upcoming visit. Women you know how this feels, right? You lovingly choose just the thing, just for them. It’s an extension of the love. A $5 package of coffee. My Venus in Leo was reveling in my self-image as a good girlfriend and in the 12th House, I felt so devoted. Virgo is in the details :)

But Virgo comes to the rescue of Pisces every time and vice versa. These two oppose each other on the natal wheel and need each other. I can wallow, I can really wallow, in the watery Neptune deep and lose my edges and merge like a motherfucker. Lose my SELF. But then my Virgo stuff kicks in and I make a face and I think: huh. Is this right? Huh. Is this good? Huh. Question question question. Wonder wonder ponder. Think think think. It’s a mood. I get these moods at night a lot. I should clean more when this happens ;)

In the morning, everything is fine. Somehow, during sleep, Virgo and Pisces have made peace. The work and the dream. The thought and the vision. The virgin and the angel. The angel and the demon ;) But who is the demon? Is it him? Or is it me?

I think we make a choice to love. We decide. The feelings erupt, yes. But you must decide to do it, to follow it through, to not give up, even in the face of squares and inconjuncts and hard transits and whatever else. You must choose. Virgo chooses. Virgo polishes the edges. Virgo d-d-d-d-d-d-d-discerns. What to keep. What to throw back. I can hardly bear to look love in the face. I need to be alone with it so that it doesn’t burn me up. But burn me up it does anyway. Sacrifice. Dissolve.

My message to very Pisces or Neptune people who tend to disappear: collect your inner Virgo. Harvest your inner Virgo. Process your Virgo. Become Virgo. Merge Virgo. It’s in your chart. It’s in you. Even if you have no Virgo planets and you feel like Virgo sucks, you need us.

Don’t disappear. Instead, come into focus. And then let go.

Virgo Is In The Details

Little things make me happy. For example, my roommate buys the cheapest hand soap possible. We have dispensers in both the kitchen and the bathroom and she buys a huge jug of the shit and refills. She’s a quadruple Taurus and cares about the earth.

What bugs me though is that this cheap soap leaves a sticky film on my hands. I also like, when I can, to buy stuff that was made without animal testing so what I buy is not the cheapest but not so expensive either. She’s the earth girl. I’m the animal girl. Not so different?

Anyway, she’s been away and the soap in the bathroom ran out and I thought to myself: Self! This is the time! Buy the soap YOU like. Yesterday when I was at the store, I remembered this self-proclamation and didn’t find my preferred brand but found a new one to try and try it I have. And I love it. No sticky mess, smells nice, groovy color. Kind to animals.

And, I swear, I ENJOY washing my hands now. With her soap, washing hands is just something I do, something that has to be done. With my soap? It becomes PLEAZZZZZURE. As well, the bottle is pretty, so I get pleasure that way too.

All of this matters to me. All of this makes a difference. I have a Virgo Moon joined to Pluto so the details (Virgo) affect my mood (Moon) in a deep (Pluto) way.

My roommate wouldn’t even notice, has never noticed, the sticky film on her hands but I am soooo aware of my body (she claims not to be aware of hers), hyper aware, typical for a Moon Pluto, that any little thing is noticed.

As we approach Virgo Season, pay attention to the little things, the details in your life. Do they please you? Do they displease? Does it matter? Where’s your Virgo house? Got planets there?

I had a big crush on Keith Richards when I was 12, 13, so once again he is today’s Moon in Virgo CoverDude.
