August 30, 2019 — The Virgo New Moon arrives on Friday at 6:37am Eastern Time, forming a harmonious Grand Earth Trine with multiple planets, including Uranus and Saturn. With five planets in Virgo, her energies are emphasized, and we might feel anxious and overwhelmed—our thoughts spinning. But the Grand Earth Trine is a beautiful support, reminding us to return to our bodies and simplicity. With faith, patience, and gentle persistence, anything is possible.
Via Ethereal Culture.
Opposite Virgo, Neptune in Pisces presents the polarity. If we can call on our spiritual practices, relaxing into being, we can naturally serve ourselves and the world. We will be able to show up for each other and solve the world’s problems, with less panic.
The danger of the Pisces-Virgo polarity is that we ping-pong between excessive worry on one hand, and the desire to check out on the other. With extra effort, we could tap into the enlightened qualities of both signs—calling on the discipline of body and mind (Virgo) so we can relax into our flow and the understanding that all is perfect, no matter what (Pisces). Certain crises are emerging within our bodies, lives, and the planet so we can ultimately heal.
How can we relate honestly with problems arising, without spinning into despair? How can we help each other, without becoming too overwhelmed?
Neptune in Pisces reminds us of our infinite nature. We have more than one lifetime to figure this out. At the same time, we’re not as confined by space and time as we might think. Working together with this stellium in Virgo, we may find that gentle discipline and purity within our own selves, and simply reaching out to those closest to us, may have a boundless effect.
As author Clarissa Pinkola Estes so eloquently wrote: “Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within reach. Any small, calm thing that one soul can do to help another soul, to assist in some portion of this poor suffering world, will help immensely.”
