But this is completely contrary to the message of the New Moon in Virgo on Thursday, September 1 because a New Moon means this is absolutely the perfect time for launching new projects! So hold off on new beginnings or move full speed ahead?Arrugh... it's crazy making!
Well, we should probably consider that this New Moon is also going to be a Solar Eclipse and eclipses always make things a bit squirrely. so probably the best advice is to delay new beginnings this month, particularly because we're also facing a very peculiar Sun, Neptune, Saturn mix-up. The Sun stands for truth, Neptune creates deception and Saturn rules time limits. It's as if the Gods are saying, "Tell the truth right now, even if you have to make something up!"
Hmm... now that I think about it, that certainly fits in with the news story of Donald Trump getting his physician (Sun in Virgo - health issue) to sign an official document (Saturn) that we now are hearing he may not have written at all (Neptune - deception)!
Anyway, bottom line is, if you're not confused this week you just haven't been paying attention.
NOW THE GOOD NEWS!
Venus is going into Libra Monday evening, Aug. 30.
Venus is the peace maker and ruler of the sign Libra where she will be strong and sure to get her way. Why is Venus considered to be so powerful here? Because Libra is the sign of the partner, the one who responds to what others initiate. Venus here strengthens our ability to respond to what we do want and to ignore what we don't. The tricky thing is we don't usually recognize our options and end up feeling forced to "choose" something we don't want at all simply because like the advertisement said, we didn't realize we could have had a V-8! So this month make it your intention to know you have choices. A good all purpose mantra is "I choose peace." Say this to yourself through out the day and particularly when you are uncertain. By holding this thought your unconscious will re-evaluate your situation and you'll find yourself seeing things from an altered - and improved - perspective. Plus remember, sometimes not responding, doing nothing, is the best choice of all.
A bit more about the benefits of Venus in Libra:
Basically it's a wonderful time for finding mutual understanding and creating win-win situations. Hanging on to old hurts will slow you down. If you are part of a group, be loyal and generous, share the credit for your accomplishments, over look the faults of others, and forgive, forgive, forgive. By bringing a benefit to your friends or associates you'll find that you too are rewarded and experience that we are indeed "all one."
Good fortune lies ahead!
