On Sunday night August 28, after Hurricane Irene blows through we will have the New Moon in Virgo at 11:04pm EST. Hopefully, everyone in New Jersey will have survived unscathed. As I write this on Saturday afternoon in Oakland, Bergen County, it’s pouring outside. I’ve got plenty of food, water and batteries. My ipod and cell phone are all charged up. I’m ready. Now I’ve realized the New Moon is almost here and I have something to say about it. I hope nothing drastic happens until after I post this!
This New Moon could be fortunate for many people. I wouldn’t make a prediction but this aspect could be protective. Maybe there will be minimal storm damage because of it. I hope I’m right. If you do have damage and your homeowner’s insurance covers it, you could end up with the addition or new roof you needed all along. The Sun, Moon and Venus are together in Virgo in a Grand Trine with Jupiter in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. These are the Earth signs. Remember, Jupiter expands and Pluto rules transformation and renewal. Seeing as how I’ve had nothing but depressing things to say about Pluto in the past several months this should be a welcome change.
The Earth signs are all about material things, meaning real estate, the environment, money, possessions, worldly pleasures, food, drink and things needed for sustenance. (Interestingly, we are preoccupied at this moment with material necessities aren’t we?) These signs also cover work, service, business and government. If you have planets in the early degrees of any of these signs, this will be a good month for you to make new starts. Opportunities may come your way this month. Look for new employment, make contacts and ask for loans or favors. Transformation, consolidation and change for the greater good can take place now. Things do take longer to manifest in the earth signs. But there is no better time than now to make wishes, make plans, go house hunting or apply for jobs. If you are looking for an anchor or definition in your life now is the time. Think positive, be very patient and have faith because you just never know.
Now it stopped raining but who knows how long this break in the weather will last? Everyone be safe and be sure to make a wish tomorrow!
