There’s a significant pattern in the heavens – all of the big player planets- Jupiter, Chiron, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Eris, Quaoar and Ixion – are Retrograde. This means they are all closer to the Earth than during any other time in their orbits around the Sun. Not only that but they are all in one half of the solar system-the Eastern hemisphere- with the Nodes of Fate as gatekeepers. Taken together, this means is that half the solar system is shaking us out of complacency, our comfort zones and our consumerist way of life.
With the Lights and the inner planets-Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars, in the Western hemisphere, we have a brief window to get a bigger perspective, to grow up, to accept and adjust to what can’t be changed and to do something about what is ours to do. The first step is to remove yourself as much as possible from virtual reality back into physical reality, to ground yourself in your body out of the heady hypnosis of the Yang, jarring, psychologically intrusive energy of 24/7 social media and fake news.
The Virgo New Moon on Tuesday is ruled by Mercury downloading important messages from both the old Copernican and the new 5D planetary Gods. The Sun/Moon are opposite limitless Neptune conjunct strategist Pallas in Pisces, square the karmic point of the Great Attractor in Sagittarius and in an Earth Grand Trine to Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. The New Moon’s trine to Uranus in fellow Earth sign Taurus means becoming even more flexible, responsive and innovative in the face of unexpected change. The Sky God operates by delivering unpredictable shocks, reversals or insights that electrify you out of your comfort zone, teaching you to collaborate with the inevitable. It’s a time in your life when something new – something eccentric – needs to break through into conscious awareness.
Be ready to become much more innovative in your work, your craft, your service and your routines, experimenting with new methods and modalities that take you out of your comfort zone. This will mean shedding and moving on from out-dated New Age modalities and techniques that attempt to change others from the outside in – so many of the old ways of working, processes and procedures that you have relied on, which always got results in the past, are no longer working.
Chandra Symbol New Moon VIRGO 15
A man inherits a vast fortune.
“Those who have ruled can serve. Those who have mastered can give themselves over. Those who have attained can extract the essence of what they have come to before and utterly discard the rest. Showered with blessings. Filled to overflowing with the streams of your background, you are yet definitely motivated to use all this as a springboard. You feel the impulse to renew gifts, treasures and mysteries – to revitalise the old streams, to make relevant and essential what has previously proven to be steady and enduring. And most of all, endowed with a fluency in drawing from the well something fresh and new and being so at home in bringing it all through that you become an individual here in the midst of things, who just happens to know and be familiar with just about anything you need to access from the well that never runs dry.” – Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
Aries Weekly Forecast: September 5-12, 2021
Until mid -September, concentrate your efforts and time on problem solving. The more you sort out practicalities such as everyday routines, timetables, work schedules, your health checks and so on-the better to avoid fire-fighting further down the road. The practical Virgo New Moon on Tuesday September 7th, giving you the determination of Pluto in Capricorn and Mars in Virgo, is the perfect opportunity to tweak your exercise routine, improve your nutrition and put an end to self-sabotaging habits. Take your time, be kind to yourself and just do each thing as it presents.
Life is not a self-improvement project.

For you as a Virgo, it’s your birthday month and personal New Year, so mark it in some special and meaningful way. What could be better than Tuesday’s beautiful New Moon at the midpoint of your sign to put your emotional needs at the very top of your priority list? It marks the start of another solar year, so it’s going to be extra important to tie up loose ends, to de-clutter and to draw real or metaphorical lines under the last 12 months.

Libra Weekly Forecast: September 5-12, 2021
The Virgo New Moon on Tuesday September 7th is in your deep hidden 12th House. You need some quiet, some privacy and some room to retreat. As happens every year at this time, your solar batteries run low in the weeks before your birthday and need recharging. Take some personal time for healing, journaling, mindful self-care and emotional repair. This year, too, your birthday season is being extended. Venus is in Libra until September 10th nudging you to take extra care of the body beautiful and to gather your allies and supporters. Mercury is also going to linger in your sign until November 4th-an unusually long time due to his retrograde at the end of the month. Channel this into anything connected with heart felt communication via the written or spoken word, perhaps blogging or even making a film.
People will paying attention to you, so think before you speak.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: September 5-12, 2021

Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: September 5-12, 2021
For you a solar Sagittarian, it’s all happening in your career angle. Until September 15th, Mars is energising the pinnacle of your chart with both the Sun and Tuesday 7th’s Virgo New Moon. This could play out in a variety of ways. You might have a difficult boss or co-worker or you might be snowed under with work and deadlines. The New Moon signals that a whole new career cycle is ahead and with Pluto-symbol of wealth- in your money angle aligning with Mars, could a promotion, or a bonus as a reward for past efforts be on the cards?
Watch for Sagittarian hoof-in-mouth syndrome and do due diligence.

Are you climbing a ladder up against the wrong wall?
