Week Beginning Friday, September 9th

While the East Coast cleans up and dries out post Hurricane Irene, Mercury re-enters Virgo and immediately passes the shadow point period of retrograde last month while opposing Chiron on the 10th. Oppositions are about awareness and this one takes place on the Virgo / Pisces axis. Many issues may be in the frame, including health, cleaning, organizing, work, employment (or lack thereof), the care of animals, and the mind/body connection.

The aftermath of crises often allows people to step into their highest and best self.  The heart opens and compassion expands as people are drawn into an experience of such magnitude that both fuels and ignites deep caring and empathy.  At it's highest Virgo is the sign of service and humbleness, stepping forward to provide earnest help through organization and practical skills.  It reminds me of the good auntie who moves in while Mom is sick to cook and clean for the family.

As we engage with this Virgo energy be aware of cues and urgings. Mars will be transiting this area for a significant period in November (until July 2012) due to his retrograde in January. Mars is the henchman for the Sun and acts upon the ideas and experiences that the Sun connects with during the month.

The Moon grows Full at 19 degrees Pisces on the 12th while squaring the Lunar Node in Sagittarius. Tension surrounds our intuition and beliefs, awakening the need for integration.

Venus slips into its home sign of Libra on the 14th while Mercury trines faith-based Jupiter.
