The ruler of this lunation stationing direct the day after a Moon of New Beginnings says you are not quite ready to share that idea, launch that project or commit to a relationship.
If you read this post on Mercury in Virgo, you will know you’ve been tending to the small details and you’ve been gathering data. Hopefully you’ve been filling your head in a conscious manner but since Mercury retrograde has been leading the dead and laying ghosts to rest since August 23rd as Hermes Chthonios, chances are your unconscious mind has been serving lessons in the form of nightmares and projection.
Let me repeat this - Mercury stationing the day after the silvery gates open means that you are not quite ready to walk into your new life. You’re still sifting through information.
The two planets of communication, Mercury and Uranus in a trine during this practical New Moon say you have opened yourself up to new ideas and new modalities over the past three weeks. You may have revisited your options, considered alternatives and now you have a plan or are in the process of putting something together after some consideration and revision but Mercury says Hold Up! Don’t rush into anything just yet....
Mercury is opposite Neptune in this lunation. You are not in possession of a critical piece of information or the information you have at hand is vague. Secrecy and deception may be afoot.
Mercury will provide you with more insight and possible clarity on the 18th. Wait until then. By the end of next week (23 September) you will feel like you are on new ground and taking steps to further your ambitions in an entirely new area.
Vesta’s entry into Cancer reminds us that home is sacred. Make space for the holy in your home. Set up an altar to the Great Mother or to Hestia herself - keeper of the flame. Trine Saturn Vesta, reminds you to establish boundaries within your home. Designate sacred space that will support healing modalities like journaling, meditation and prayer (Virgo = healing).
If you have any planets or angles at 21-22º Virgo (and within a 3º orb) you are heading towards a new life as a groundbreaker. You will be known as someone who changed the narrative. The history books will call you a pioneer.
Wait until you can see the crescent Moon and Mercury is direct before setting intentions.
