Big things happening this weekend with the New Moon in Virgo, as well as a partial Solar Eclipse. This takes place at 12.41am on Sunday, Mountain Standard Time. I made a video describing these energies, and how they flow from last month here:
Other details pertinent to this transit include the opposition to Chiron at 19° Pisces, which will activate an opportunity for healing. Chiron is an asteroid/planetoid between Jupiter and Saturn, symbolizing the bridge between past and present, between the waking world and the underworld. He’s the wounded healer, representing where we have been hurt or where we are incomplete, and conversely, where we can heal others and in doing so, become whole. In Pisces, this has to do with our subconscious. The deepest parts of our minds, our connection to the other side, the spiritual energies of the universe, the place where we wash away and become one with creation, is highlighted during this New Moon and partial Solar Eclipse. We have the opportunity to heal these hurts in our souls, or we run the risk of becoming paralyzed by them and allowing them to take over. Oppositions are a fine-tuned balance or a tug of war. Will you hold on to past hurts, or will you become empowered by them? With Saturn at the last degree of Scorpio (shared values, regeneration, cycles), I would encourage all of us to let go and release these hurts. This will create the balance we need to integrate Chiron’s healing energy into this new phase of our lives. Because this Solar Eclipse is opening a portal to new world of our own devising, don’t limit your power during this time. What you feel can be made manifest.
While we have this healing going on, we will need to be aware of Uranus over there at 19° Aries. This creates what’s called a quincunx, an aspect of 150 degrees to the New Moon. This is at best…unpredictable. With Uranus’ M.O. of breaking out and rebelling against the status quo, electrically charging whatever he touches, this New Moon and partial Solar Eclipse can have explosive results. This could mean you are encountering new ideas or situations that you have no basis of experience with, it could challenge your ideas about who you are. It’s possible that in delving into the psyche of Chiron/Pisces, you find things that don’t fit with how you now see the world or even yourself. That’s OK! The only constant is change. And this can quite possibly be a violent change. Aries is warlike, almost childishly, innocently selfish and with Uranus there supercharging our self-interest, we could be seeing major, jolting changes in the areas of our lives where these things land in our chart. Chiron/Pisces blends into the next sign of Uranus/Aries, so while these changes might seem incongruent or unexpected, the New Moon/Eclipse/Virgo energies will help actualize and physicalize and realize – in the waking world – the birth of the new energies within you.
Go for it! Blow stuff up! Leave it behind you!
A new world is waiting for you.
