Sun enters Virgo 0:46 AM EDT
Every year the Sun goes into Virgo around this time. And every year you could say it’s the same. But every year it’s also different. The Moon is in a different sign and phase and some of the planets will have changed signs. So it’s the same and yet it’s different. The essential wisdom of Virgo can be found in this simple, profound truth. Only in a world that despises diversity has our notion of Virgo degenerated to mean an anxiety ridden need for order.

If you have been reading my insights for a while you many know that I see each and every New Moon as a symbol of forgiveness; a possibility to begin again. Each New Moon is the same in this respect and yet each is unique as it occurs in a different sign. For this New Moon you might imagine yourself as a universe; rich in many and varied resources. What is required is simply your good intention to integrate those resources that all may thrive.
It is a great day to put intelligent effort into creative initiative. Just remember, intention is at the root of everything. It trumps action.

Excessive consumption is bad for individuals and worse for the whole of us. The shadow of elegance is often uglier than sin. Be mindful how and what is spent.

Desire will be thwarted now and again. Such is the nature of the world.
Sun opposite Neptune
All the longings of all the people of all the ages would fit on the head of a pin. Ask your angels to care for your longings so you can be free to experience longing rather than the suffering that seems to accompany it.
Mercury enters Libra
Our thoughts, actually our thinking, turns toward balancing the space between us all that we may truly listen to and hear others. That we may know that the other is a person, just like us. From this understanding we are led to justice.
Sun trine Pluto
Empowerment is possible. Let the light shine – not for the mere sake of the light, but in service to Life Itself. And fear not the shadows.
Venus enters Virgo
She dedicates her love – even her precious beauty (beyond compare) to the healing of the planet, the people, the land, the animals, the elements.
Full Moon: 16 degrees Pisces: 9:38 PM EDT
Survey your world. All you see is a reflection of yourself. No judgment. When you see something you don’t like in a mirror it would be madness to break the mirror. What is especially in need of reflection at this Full Moon is the condition of service toward the self as well as others. Questions of compassion as well as accessibility are important.
Mercury square Pluto
It is not as much about genuine misunderstanding as it is about not wanting to hear what is being said. Surrender to the impasse and allow the lines of communication to open.
Sun sextile Saturn
An opportune moment to call upon experience (our best teacher) to help us solve the mystery of the moment.
Mercury opposite Uranus
Mars enters Sagittarius
Every good teacher knows that the best students will have a lot of questions which is quite different than just wanting to hear themselves talk. What questions do we have that might challenge our teachers or our assumptions in this, the back-to-school season?
Passionate action may seem like a good idea but hold back a bit. It will have a better outcome after the 21st.
Venus trine Pluto
It’s one thing to dash madly off after what you think you want, it’s another to honor and cultivate your true values. Our values as individuals create the economic climate of our lives. Don’t be sold to. Whatever it takes for you to know what you really value is worth the effort. This is a practical exploration. What you really value is something you are willing to pay for or spend time doing.

There is a pretty amazing, very confusing, totally misleading con-game going on in the back room. Maybe you’re itching to play, Maybe you want to pretend it isn’t happening. Let the strength of your values orient you so you don’t become an unwitting actor in a mass hallucination that will leave you empty and alone.
