COSMIC WATCH:

“Growth demands a temporary surrender of security.” Gail Sheehy

The first half of the day, the waning Moon wraps up her stay in dramatic Leo forming her monthly opposition to fantasy Neptune (1:11 pm EDT), which potentially casts a more surreal tone to matters. With Moon-Neptune the challenge is always to stay grounded or anchored and avoid being swept away by undercurrents of worry or fear.

Of course, as many of us are waking up this morning, Hurricane Irene is still front and center in the news, as she hammers away at the northeastern seaboard of the U.S. Too, Neptune governs the sea and hurricanes. On the shadow side, Neptune’s ray can be very undermining and eroding, as we see this playing out now with Irene. Neptune symbolizes our link with the Divine and part of its mission seems to be to remind us of the shifting, temporal nature of things. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those persons being impacted by this storm. I live in central North Carolina and felt Irene’s winds all day yesterday and they were pretty scary and intimidating, even on the periphery.

We do have the Moon shifting into efficient Virgo this afternoon (2:13 pm EDT) and also a New Moon tonight at 5 degrees of the sign (11:04 pm EDT). New Moons signify new beginnings and this New Moon brings with it a magical Grand Earth Trine involving propitious Jupiter in Taurus and regenerating Pluto in Capricorn. This Grand Trine will hopefully be very empowering for us, if we can tap into its energy. Sweet Venus is also conjunct this lunation adding a social dimension to it.

Virgo presides over the areas of health and diet, and also work and service to others. It also governs the more routine aspects of daily living such as cleaning, organizing, etc. Today’s New Moon in Virgo suggests that we have a wonderful chance to get our personal affairs in order over the course of the next month. It’s a great time, for instance, to tidy up or de-clutter the home front, get our checking account balanced, tackle that mountain of paper on the desk. Or to maybe focus on self-care matters, such as revamping our diet and or recommitting to a health and exercise program. Also, it’s an excellent time to apply for a new job, perfect our skills or hone a craft. With transforming Pluto at play, we may also find it a favorable period to revive old projects.

Happy New Moon Blessings! Enjoy your Sunday!
