New Moon in Virgo, September 6th, 2021

After last month's Blue Moon (the 2nd full moon to happen in the same sign or the same month) in Aquarius, we begin September with a solid, earthy New Moon in Virgo.This is a great time to begin a cleanse or step up your spiritual practice, meditation being a great way to calm the mind and help us discern between the grain and the chaff, between truth and the falsehoods that are parading as truths at this time.

Time also to take inventory of stocks, remove the clutter and clear out the debris in our lives. This is quite fitting after the passage of Ida, leaving many of us without electricity for days (still no power or internet for this gal), and unfortunately much worse scenarios for others. Not to mention the Cauldron fire disaster out West!

This chart has a very interesting fan-like formation, not unlike a "Jacob's ladder", the hand and string game I used to love playing as a child. I was intrigued by the fact that the personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury and Venus) are all grouped together on the right-hand side of the chart, and they are all direct. The social and outer planets (also known as trans-personal) - Uranus, Chiron, Neptune, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto - are spread out wider but still grouped on the left-hand side of the chart, and they are ALL retrograde. What are the odds of this? I don't know, but somehow it feels significant, like the turning of the tides, or the changing of the guard. Who is playing whom in this puppet show? Shall we take a look?

First of all, the personal planets are in signs of practicality, rationality (Virgo), diplomacy and fairness (Libra). All moving direct, they show up in our lives as experiences in the outer world: the manifestation of our thoughts and emotions into actions, creations and events of various kinds. The other planets, moving retrograde, have a more subtle and inner meaning, offering insights and revelations within our mind and emotional frameworks. As these are the social and trans-personal planets, we tend to be thinking and feeling about issues greater than our own back yard, and within the context of the present time that makes total sense.

Let's look at the idea of "the changing of the guard". There are two planets running the show in this chart: Venus and Saturn. Each is in his or her own sign, and each has planets answering to him or her. We see Venus on the leading edge of the personal planets, all moving forward, while Saturn, although in his own sign of Aquarius, is not leading his pack, nor is he or any of his cohort, moving direct. Up until just before last year's Winter Solstice, Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto were closely aligned in Capricorn, and had been for the whole of 2020. The focus was on the elite (Capricorn, ruled by Saturn) exercising power over every aspect of our lives that they possibly could. Lock-downs, masking and censorship of dissenting views - even of prominent scientists, doctors and medical experts - were accepted, unquestioned, by the populace. We didn't know what was really happening and we chose to play it safe.

Now that the two social planets are in Aquarius, the sign of the People, we have begun to question the validity of the draconian stance taken by the government about a disease that, although apparently quite contagious, has a recovery rate of, at worst, 99.5%. The official stance that only the vaccine can prevent this "terrible" disease from destroying countless lives couldn't be farther from the truth, as the real stats tell a very different story. According to the CDC website (who incidentally recently removed 6000 deaths from the VAERS data), over 12,000 and counting have lost their lives directly from the experimental jab, and hundreds of thousands have been maimed or injured, in this country alone; extrapolate that world-wide, and you have a real pandemic, replacing the fake one that was foisted upon us over the past 20 months by the governments and complicit media. In fact, a whistleblower from the CDC has come forward saying that the death toll is much higher than reported, resulting in the filing of lawsuits against the Federal government.

Why would they do this? Your guess is as good as mine, although I can't help but see the writing on the wall: New World Order, One World Government, Build Back Better... all slogans wanting us to believe one thing, while in fact leading us into mass death and chaos, resulting in a 90% reduction of the world population (one of the goals written out clearly on the Georgia Guidestones) and the implementation of Agenda 2030, only 8 short years away... "You will own nothing and you will be happy..." as stated by Klaus Schwab, director of the WEF. Sound like a crazy and horrible remnant of the past? Scary, and unfortunately true.

With the social planets, Jupiter and Saturn, having moved out of Capricorn and into Aquarius, the sign of the People, those who once had control of the populace are now scrambling to keep whatever power they still have and create more lock-downs, mask and vaccine mandates, and blame those of us who choose to stay healthy in other ways than those sanctioned by the mainstream, for the state of affairs we find ourselves in. We are being labeled as domestic terrorists and being told we will not have the right to participate in the world unless we conform to their edicts, thereby violating our own bodies and values. Soon we will be given yellow armbands to wear and rounded up into camps for the "unvaccinated" if this mindset is allowed to continue, unfettered by the logic and science that has been banned from the global exchange of ideas. Do we really need to repeat history? Have we not learned anything from our mistakes over the course of the last century? Apparently not...

Fortunately we have Venus on our side, who in Libra is leading the charge by reminding us that we are not alone and that united we are far more powerful than any tiny elite trying to control us. The only square aspect we see in this chart is between Venus and Pluto, who - still in Capricorn - represents power, and the power of death and rebirth. Venus, in her own sign, has the upper hand in this relationship. She is telling Pluto that no matter what tactics he deploys to divide and conquer from the upper echelons down, she will prevail in bringing about fairness, cooperation and justice. And with Jupiter, the Greater Benefic, in a beautiful trine aspect from Aquarius, you can be sure she will succeed in her mission.

Several other trine aspects adorn this chart, including one between Pluto and Mars. Like the Sun/Moon couple, Mars is in earthy Virgo where his actions are strategic and well-planned. Answering to Mercury in Libra, who in turn answers to Venus, this Mars is serving the interests of Love and relating to one another, rather than top-down authoritarian control and the resulting oppression of life and liberty. With this aspect, we can expect grassroots organizations protesting the unconstitutional mandates and abusive control by the government to organize and unite into widespread national and international movements, which is exactly what is happening at this time. With Jupiter in the mix, the will of the People will be a force to reckon with, just as it was during the American Revolution. Watch out, King George!

Looking at other aspects of this chart, Mars is quickly moving out of an opposition to Neptune, urging us to be mindful of illusions and possible deceit. In a quincunx (150⁰) to Jupiter, there are details that need to be taken care of before any actions will have durable or widespread benefits. Mercury opposite Chiron is a call to speak truthfully, albeit tactfully, in order to heal relationships, including with one's own self. Finally, Chiron in a separating (waning) quincunx aspect with the Sun and Moon speaks to a need for integration and healing after experiences such as Hurricane Ida, the Cauldron fires, the debacle in Afghanistan, all leaving immeasurable loss and damage in their wakes.

The New Moon (and Sun) in Virgo and Uranus in Taurus form a perfect trine aspect: the time for deep change has come. Using our minds and hearts to visualize the world we want to live in and leave to our children, their children, and all those who come after us, we can create this change together. In fact, this is the only way it can happen concretely and durably, by uniting our forces in every possible way. Grassroots freedom movements; taking our money out of the bankster-run financial system and buying land to co-create eco-villages that integrate with local communities; cultivating the land with time-tested agricultural methods that enrich the soil and respect the Earth; removing our children from any school system that takes away the parents right to determine what is best for their children; strengthening our spiritual practices; coming together to pray in whatever name we choose for the Creator of all that is; celebrating LIFE and all creation; and last but not least, loving one another unconditionally through the purification of our hearts and minds.

This is the change that I yearn for, and so many people I know and have spoken with about this share my dreams. For me, these dreams have begun to come to fruition, in the form of a community based on cooperation, compassion and communal values (NOT communism) located on 100 acres of land in Northeastern Tennessee. I see this as the first step toward freeing ourselves from the negative conditioning and oppression we have received for thousands of years, through the distorted teachings of Christianity and the resulting oppression of feminine values, native Earth teachings and associated spirituality.

May All Beings be able to live free and happy lives. May we learn to respect Mother Earth and honor her and the Creator of all, just as children should honor their parents, and parents care for their children. Only by practicing our values, coming together to share and caring for one another will we create heaven on Earth, thus stepping into the Age of Aquarius.
