September 14, 2023 is the New Moon in Virgo in the Northern Hemisphere. Virgo deals with organization, the body, embodying, accomplishing, healing and health. Virgo is ruled by Chiron the Great Healer and Mercury, the mind & communication.
This is a New Moon with great potential for manifesting things of physical form, expansion, healing, love and creating new desires. It is a time to reflect on where you are presently with your life lessons and reflect back on how far you have come. Acknowledge who you used to be and see who you are now. For writing intentions this New Moon, think about where you want to go moving forward. Whatever your desires are, ask, believe & trust spirit will bring you what you need to accomplish your goals. Avoid fixating, over defining and trying to control your outcome.
The things to be aware of in setting your intentions is to keep your goals and ambitions right-sized. There is potential for delusion, confusion and over the top responses to situations & relationships, but also potential for strong spiritual guidance and support. Keep things in balance and don’t make things more than they are. If you get a sign from spirit, don’t think this is going to necessarily always be a big breakthrough or promise a miracle. See it more as a sign along the path to your goals and be grateful. Keep moving forward as you learn and grow. Make decisions and choices, let go of expecting others to create and do for you. Open yourself to new ideas in response to your intentions, because the Universe may surprise you with a new idea or direction in life.
Let’s see what the cards say we need to know about letting go of the old life stories to move toward healing and new intentions. I drew a card from the “Wisdom of the Oracle Deck” by Collette Baron-Reid. The card is: “Flexible.” The essential meaning of this card is: Teachability; open-mindedness; being adaptable without compromising what’s most important. The book gives the example of a tree and how it’s roots are firmly planted in the ground, yet its branches can bend in a hurricane….where a rigid structure like a building will come crashing down. The tree remains supple and secure when everything around it may be in shambles. It is important to be willing to learn new things, be teachable, malleable, yet firmly grounded in who you are. Common sense is important, but so is an open mind.
In closing, I have been exploring learning more about Astrology. One important lesson I learned in this free seminar series I participated in a few weeks ago, is when learning to read an astrology chart can help you to accept yourself and others more. Help you to release the unrealistic expectations you may have for yourself and others. As we all know, it can help you to realize what your souls purpose is in this life and most importantly why you are who you are. I especially liked the idea of when you learn to read charts of other people, it helps you to see that person for who they are and why they aren’t like you, why trying to change them may not be possible. It helps take the judgement about others away & possibly helps to release pet peeves. It teaches us to understand that what you are good at, others may never be. Or it is much more work for them. It really opens you to see people for who they are, not what they aren’t.
That is the beauty of learning something different that spirit may be leading you toward. When I started this seminar series I didn’t really understand it’s intent was to recruit astrology students. I just felt very interested and realized I had nothing to lose by signing up as it was free. When you feel inspired and curious, it is worth the effort to explore and possibly be led to a new path of discovery or deeper into something you desire. Let go of the negative thoughts and explore what you don’t understand to find balance. It will cleanse your Aura and help you to attract more goodness in your life. Always remember, when you heal yourself, you are contributing to the energy of healing others.
Peace and Love! Susan
