New Moon in Virgo 4:36 AM PDT of September 5th 13 Virgo o4:
‘All In The Family’
The New Moon in Virgo aspects Chiron by opposition, Uranus by quincunx, and Jupiter by sextile. This suggests that the fresh beginnings of a NM are involved with healing, or that they spring from healing which has already occurred; the idea with the latter is that now that we’re healed, we can go on to something brand new. The problem is that either the group or our own urges toward uniqueness or rebellion push us away from this new start, or align us with it in such a way that we sabotage ourselves. We can receive help from the social sphere, through knowledge shared, through publications that say just the right thing, or through prayer or counsel of a spiritual leader. But what is the new start, exactly? It may, in some way, have derived at least part of its meaning from that Moon-Pluto aspect of a few hours before; in stirring up the darkness, or the past, we have put the final piece of the current ‘new start’ into place.
The Sabian for the New Moon is, ‘An Aristocratic Family Tree’. So, if there’s a group involved in our NM beginning, it almost certainly will be one’s family. With that in mind, it seems to me that we should look forward to some aspect of ourselves, harmed by family dynamics or the early environment, now healed, that is the basis or starting point for our own new and unique expression of ourselves in the social circle. A family tree makes us aware of connections, of the ways individuals are entwined, sometimes without much contact or awareness of one another. The point of a NM with this as a symbol may just be that all families carry the romance, the rise and fall of fortunes, the exotic or adventurous members, the successes and failures, that aristocratic families do. It may be our business to regard our own family this way, to find the nobility in it, to re-acquaint ourselves with the things that are quite special in our lineage. Surely these will figure in to our NM new start; something we’ve learned from them, that has been passed down, that is encoded in our DNA, will be an important part of what we begin at this time. Look to the natal House with Virgo on the cusp, and/ or the House where the NM actually falls, for hints as to the areas where your NM new start might occur.
