All of us have the potential to be nourished by the Moon’s journey into Virgo, which occurs on August 30th, 2019, in the wee hours just before dawn at 4:37 am MDT, when some of us will
still be dreaming in the land of shadows.
Virgo’s Healing Earthy New Moon reminds me of why I garden and how it feeds my soul.
~ Feeling the damp soil in my fingers and on my cheek as I brush my hair away in the wind.
~ Delighting in the simplicity of chickadees and juncos bathing in the fountain, or the joyful surprise of Anna’s hummingbirds showering in the mist from the garden hose.
~ Finding peace in the vigilant silence of the baby rabbit nibbling on clover, trusting me completely to continue planting Sweet Williams by her side.
~ Appreciating the focused industry of ground squirrels and chipmunks gathering what they need for the coming winter.
~ Watching in awe as arachnids move about Her skin – from great grey wolf spiders camoflauged in the dirt to ancient orb weavers creating suspended works of art in the air.
~ Inhaling the manna of petrichor – the earthy aroma produced when rain falls on dry soil.
How perfect that the word petrichor is constructed from the Greek language – petra meaning “stone”, and īchōr meaning “the fluid that flows in the veins of the Gods in Greek mythology.”
Of course, I would add that it flows in the veins of Goddesses, too.
Virgo is all about the Feminine Earth Goddess and
Her gardens of Life and Love with which she blesses us.
If we’re alert and open enough to her healing energy now, we’ll discover that we feel a bit more present – a bit more grounded – and a bit more nourished than we were just moments ago.
Our perfect selves yearn for our purest intentions to be expressed during this auspicious time. The clearer and more committed we are to what matters now, the easier our efforts will be in the month ahead. Virgo loves action, effort, order, and routine – and it thrives on efficiency.
This moon cycle invites us to make what we’re working on count, and its Earthy trine to Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn supports our efforts to that end.
This Lunar Goddess also aligns with both Mars and Venus in Virgo, blessing us with the perfect balance and wholeness of masculine and feminine energies. It longs for us to claim what we desire and what we value, and it encourages us to clarify what we’re willing to give and what we’re willing to receive.
We are to call forth, ground into, and embody that which is natural and essential ~ that which is whole, unified, and perfect ~ that which is universal and right here in front of us, always: our genuine and magnificent selves.
So it is and so it shall be. Always, healing. Always, love. Always, blessings.
For all relations ~
