“The New Moon at 5 Virgo 27 on August 28th 2011 Tells Us to Seize the Moment”

Within a few days after Mercury Retrograde goes direct, and as we look forward to the fall season that is almost upon us, the New Moon at 5 Virgo 37 at 8:04 p.m. PDT on August 28th 2011 is telling us to seize the moment, and to file it away for further use.  With the new moon making a grand trine to Pluto and Jupiter conjunct Venus, this is a moment in time we need to work with, experience and understand the energy the Universe is blessing us with at this time.  Are we working with it or for it, or is this energy for our disposal to help us achieve what we desire?  We must remember a grand trine may bestow blessings upon us and make things easier for us to achieve whatever we put our mind to, but it is also letting us know we need to put effort into it, if we wish to achieve our hearts desire.  How we see this new beginning is how we will create and reinvent, and how we analytically work with it and store its knowledge for use, which will be the key to future undertakings.  Knowledge is power, but with wisdom we have the ability to use it correctly to bring a successful completion to any idea or project.  Virgo is highlighting the need to analyze, and organize our thoughts and ideas for the moment and for future reference, and to realize that by serving others, we learn to appreciate the blessings the Universe has and will bestow on us.    

“The Sabian symbol for the 6th degree of Virgo is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Virgo 6  A merry-go-round  This is a symbol of a cyclic and necessary intensification of any personal being, as emphasized on the side of normal or everyday experience.  Pleasure is the simplest possible form of creative exchange, and it always encourages and refines the individual’s range of potentiality.  Here is a receptiveness to every turn of opportunity to be found in the immediate situation, and a willingness to attempt its demonstration.  The keyword is diversion.  When positive, the degree is endless and happy resourcefulness in a constant reorientation of self to meet varying experiences of life, and when negative, a continuous and senseless ricochet from one to another meaningless phase of self-expression.

This Sabian symbol is gently reminding us that life, whether pleasurable or serious, goes in cycles, and the reason for the repetition is not only to learn from the situation, but to realize when we need to get off the merry-go-round, and go on to the next level of circumstances or the next ride at the park.  The symbolic inference of the repetitions of going around the circle is the need for the participant to assess where he or she is in this life and when it is time to go to the next level.  Life has it cycles and repetition and we need the wisdom, resourcefulness and the awareness when we have finally accomplished what we need to learn and go on to new challenges.  It is important we learn from our mistakes and successes, so that we need not repeat the cycle again.  The symbol is also prompting us to be like a little child and see and enjoy the world through their eyes with the excitement of the first encounter and wonderment.  As we continue our sojourn in life, we need to constantly see and experience things as if we are seeing and experiencing them anew with utter excitement and joy.  As all children do when they step on to the merry-go-round and the ride begins, they seize the moment and enjoy the adventure.  So too, this New Moon in Virgo is telling all of us to be like little children and seize the moment.

      Caution and care is always the keyword, and rushing into anything is asking for trouble. Mercury Retrograde is asking us to slow down and to pay attention to the details and the little things in life, as they are far more important then we normally give them credit.
      Regards and the Best,

    Hello Lincoln,
    My birthday is 11/28/69, I am looking to retire early and have been actively trading. I am wondering if I am on the right track to making a windfall that will ultimately have plenty of gains for me so that I am able to take care of past debt and build stability for me. I’ve never been married and do not see this in my current future but wondered about trusting potential friend that I have currently with my gains.
    Please advise,
    Thank you,

      Hi Brawny.
      To see if you are on the right track, I suggest you find and make an appointment to see a financial Traditional Astrologer in your area, as I feel the accuracy of predicting whether you will fulfill the promise of your chart, will be more right on to what you want from a reading. As far as the question of trusting your friend, a traditional horary reading may be more to your liking and satisfaction.
