Virgo season is here and with that comes its New Moon this Saturday 27th at 1:17 AM PT.
Virgo is a sign that appreciates the earthly realm of structure and organization, and healing. Further, it is ruled by Mercury, so it also has a deep connection to all the nuances of communication. This New Moon in Virgo greatly supports a focus on work, communication, health, and clarity. As a New Moon always marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle, it is considered energetically a good time to plant intentions and seeds for your next cycle, especially around these themes.
And while Virgo's ruler Mercury, the planet of communication, brings a focus on expression and communication, we call upon the archetype of The Medicine Woman, and how she is here to heal. Sometimes healing comes through communication and other times it comes through our connection to the sustenance that is provided by the earth.
Virgo is represented by the Virgin, who is sovereign unto herself and who carries a stalk of grain as the nourisher. She is the Goddess of the Harvest and with harvest comes great nourishment and healing. From the Greek perspective, it is Demeter, and to the Romans, it is Ceres.
The energy of the powerful sovereign Virgo asks us how are we honoring our own sovereign nature. And with the Mercury connection, asking how are we expressing our truth at this time?
With the archetype of the healer, we are also asking to connect to the energy of this next lunation around what we are here to heal in this lifetime. What is it that resides within you that needs intention, attention, and deep understanding? As you are in this process of reflection, also consider how are you here to help others move through their own process of healing. How are you here to shepherd and hold the light?
Our next Feminine Code Ceremony is happening for Autumn Equinox and Mabon on September 22nd. You can sign up for our Feminine Code Collective Waitlist and join us for next months ceremony here to work with the changing seasons.
Enjoy this time in Virgo and your connection to the earth and your own healing at this time.
