From MoonCircles and ThePowerPath:
Chiron is prominent at this Virgo New Moon eclipse. The Wounded Healer (Chiron) opposes the Sun and Moon as they join, bringing issues related to suffering and healing into sharp focus. In a solar eclipse, the feminine (Moon) vanquishes the masculine (Sun). Thus, male abuses are being held up for scrutiny. Wrongs of the past can now be righted, and a clean slate is possible.
“Chiron in Pisces is opposite the Sun and Moon in Virgo, releasing from our hearts all the ways we have created being inhibited, shamed, discounted by being unseen, overlooked and dissolving the barriers we have created for ourselves. Chiron, like ‘the Hermit’ card in the tarot, shines the light of wisdom on how we hold ourselves small with those old patterns. Surrender of the old and hidden and compassion for all the ways our current world and fearful little egos hold ourselves outside of love is Chiron’s healing message from Pisces. Chiron in Pisces is the bridge to bringing in the energy of Spirit into our every day lives.”
The Virgo eclipse calls us to stay focused on and dedicated to our goals and well-being. It may be time to recommit to your work, health, or sense of service. Yet this New Moon falls just four days before a powerful, otherworldly Jupiter-Neptune opposition – and mental Mercury stationing retrograde. It’s going to be easy to get carried away, for better or worse. Let yourself become inspired, but be wary of launching any new projects (especially involving technology) or relationships until mid-October. During the retrograde, (Sept. 17 – Oct. 9) take time planning your next steps. Get your health and fitness regimen on track, surround yourself with supportive people, and formulate a step-by-step plan based on inspiring visions being downloaded this month.
This new moon is the opening act of the play called “now or never” or “what are you waiting for?” You may feel a desperate desire to get on with your life, but without the understanding of what that means or how to go about it. Be careful with impatience and being irritated by what you perceive to be standing in your way. This is a great time of change but if you try and micromanage it from the position of ego attachment, you will be missing the gifts. So sit back, be clear, and have Spirit do the rest.
There is really nothing you have to do except recommit to your own faith and trust in your clear intentions and desires. Ask spirit for help and commit to stepping up and showing up and being willing to change what’s needed. This is a good day to anchor something of a spiritual practice and to honor your inner life.
