“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
Effective Date: September 9th, 2017
Helios on the New Moon in Virgo– Okay so there are some lunations where the focus isn’t on what is happening with the closer, “Classical” planets; but instead with wilder, more primal forces from beyond the borders of Neptune. This is one of those times. With this moon taking place opposite Neptune and with so, so much Transneptunian action going on you wouldn’t be wrong to call this the second of three Full Moons in Pisces (yeah, I know I didn’t do the last one but I’ve been going through it chile, trust). It’s odd. This Lunation is basically the classical planets stepping aside to give the stage to the Transneptunians. They are coming through STRONG right now, and you better fucking pay attention to what they have to say.
The Sun & Moon, Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto– You’ve been feeling lost. Alone. Adrift. Absent of purpose. That changes today, with this New Moon. This moon’s main goal is to come through like a bolt of lightning and inspire you in a new way. Neptune and Jupiter are clearing the way for you to realize your destiny, and create your future in your own image. You’ve been realizing what it is you have to do lately, your soul’s purpose, but there was a sticking point for it- a question that defied an answer. Whatever house this lunation falls in for you will show you the path to get to what you want, what you need, and what the world needs from you.
These Transneptunians are LOUD on this moon (Every time Arawn shows up I pay attention). They want to be noticed and they want you to hear their message, because it is the answer you are looking for. What they say is that you already know what you want for your future, and are totally able to get it. You know this. You are allowing your fear of the uncertain days ahead and your unknown future stumbling blocks allow you to not take any action in the here and now- You’re hiding behind the excuse of not having the entire path ahead of you detailed step-by-step, and saying that you’re unable to move ahead because you don’t know exactly how it’ll play out for you. Well suck it up buttercup, because that isn’t how life works. We need to take a certain amount of this on faith. Realize what you want, figure out what you need to do to get it, and act on the problems immediately in front of you. Be willing to take the risk on yourself, but make sure it is a calculated one for once. If you aren’t worth risking it all for, who is?
Listen, I get feeling lost as to the greater path you are on and not knowing what to do next- but at a certain point it doesn’t matter. Work towards digging yourself out of this hole in the present first, and then you can focus on the future. Virgo season never comes easy, you have to WORK for anything that you want. Look, its fine to have dreams but it isnt fine to never act on them. You owe it to yourself to try for your very best life, no matter what it costs you in the short run. Try, and give it your all.
Mercury and…. the Nodes? I guess?– Mercury is boring and nothing is really happening with him but I didn’t want to just have two categories. Sure he just went direct but he’s going to shoot through the rest of Virgo and rocket through Libra. We’ll get back to him in Scorpio.
What I can say is don’t really put yourself out there too much right now, sit back and plan for your future. Ignore drama and don’t get dragged into fights. Leave the bitches on read. In fact just throw your phone out the window.
Venus, Mars, Saturn, and Uranus– Okay so I have been obsessing over Venus in Scorpio and we will get to HER ass in due time. What you need to be on guard for right now is the tendency to look wistfully back at a past that isn’t quite what you remember. Nostalgia and rose-colored glasses are your enemy right now. Saturn is direct and Uranus is retrograding with Mars, you need to be focusing on your hustle and building up your future. Think of Aesop’s story about the Ant and the Grasshopper- This is where you work hard to build up your reserves for the coming winter. On the one hand, you are getting this surge of the energy you have been lacking, and you want to USE it and enjoy feeling whole again, but you are being extended an energetic line of credit, it isn’t a free gift. You need to spend it wisely so that you can pay it back, and you do that by building a future, not being stuck in the past. What i’m saying is that you have to move on- stop trying to save something that is unsalvageable and focus on building something new. You KNOW this situation isn’t going to work, because you have seen this happen before. Learn your lessons from past pain before passion lands you in some serious peril.
