This would be a week of epiphanies and realisations though it doesn’t seem to start that way when I look at the aspects made by the active planets this week.
We are coming out of three weeks of Mercury retrograde so its not a surprise that we would have our mind clearer and some clear agenda items ahead of us to achieve in flesh considering its last week of Virgo season. So many things so little time. Tik tok the clock is ticking… so it seems.
Yet the week starts with a rather confusing and to some extend physically debilitating aspect of Sun in Virgo opposing Neptune in Pisces at 26º16’ — Monday blues strike and they seem to extend to Tuesday. But they are not honestly blues as this aspect is an annual defogger. Wherever our idealism has escaped the real life — we seem to suddenly wake up from a stupor of sorts. For some it’s the Sunday sermon, for some that Monday morning meeting and for some the eventual end of summer fun laced with chaos. It’s an annual get back to school aspect and it comes with Mercury going direct at 8º Virgo which is very much a go back to school degree too.
It’s the degree of “Potentiality of Initiation” as Rudhyar described it. Taking that transitional step to mastery of something that may have been your dream but you may not have all the tools, education or skills to achieve it. Sabian symbols depicted it as — A five year old child takes a first dancing lesson. Neptune plants many surreal, beyond imagination, ethereal dreams and Venus retrograde which just concluded has surely woken up some buried old passions & things we want to achieve. Virgo season and the new moon that we are under influence of till end of the month — help equip us with the practical tools to achieve them. It starts with epiphany or knowledge or to some extend dissatisfaction of not yet “being there”, whatever there is — cause wishes and dreams have no end.
As we get more realistic about the passionate and eager five year old within us without making him/her loose the wish to pursue our need to express our individuality — we finally take our first dancing class. We initiate a journey of mastery. The new moon in Virgo came with a positive aspect to Uranus. It ushers change, leaf change color with equinox ahead of us waiting to change seasons. This is the week of epiphanies of acceptance of what we are good at and what we need a teacher, a guru, an education on. And we experience the aspect of focus in second half of the week to go after it with Sun in Virgo making a beautiful grounding earth trine of real progress if we go for it with Pluto in Capricorn at 27º59’.
Through it all we are tempted to act on a lower frequency as thats Neptune — it holds duality. You want to live in self deception and fear or would you like to take some real steps to what you do know now you want. Venus would reach its Greatest illumination on 19 Sept, with the symbol of love, abundance, money, passions shining brightest for 2023. She has finally transitioned from being an evening star all year — accepting what comes, trying to attract what it could, being in its traditional feminine energy to now its Lucifer mode. The morning star Venus knows what she wants and knows how to get it, she doesn’t hide in the night looking pretty and aloof — though nothing wrong with that traditional mode, this is not that time of the year anymore. It’s the time of pursue. Full phase of Venus on 19 Sept doesn’t just make the Venus shine brightest — it also like every planet’s full phase brings realisations on money, on love, on how we want to receive / give / achieve what we love. 13 August started new phase of Venus which resonates across its 8 years cycles of 2015, 2007 and 1999. How you evolved in those years in your feminine or masculine energy might be worth looking back to as the light of Venus gains full illumination on 19 Sept.
Mercury, the symbol of our mind, communication and commerce will also become visible reaching its greatest western elongation on 22 Sept. This is a very brief period and marks transition of Mercury our mind to morning star mode which is also about risk taking, pursue and experimentation. Becoming visible in its sign of strength is even more rare for Mercury. Making end of this week esp. 21/22 Sept great for decisions and making up our mind or business discussion. Avoid those on 19 Sept if possible.
While Mercury and Venus are both still in shadow, meaning still walking the degrees they have walked before — meaning our heart and mind are still dealing with old matters but they are renewed — same things are looked at from a different perspective and pursued … at accelerating speed. Tik tok…
Have a great week ahead !
Much Love 💕
