The Dark Moon occurs this Saturday at 1:58 pm (here in New Mexico), so either Friday night or Saturday night is suitable for ritual or divination.
This Dark Moon in Virgo finally brings to a head all those issues Saturn and Jupiter have been bringing to our attention this year: organizing our time and efforts, being productive and successful, and creating something useful for others. The Moon and Sun are only about three degrees from Saturn on Saturday. (The Moon overtakes him Saturday night at about 8:30, which could be an especially powerful time for connecting with the Saturnian energies of this Moon. The Sun overtakes Saturn on Wednesday.) Saturn is closely trine with Jupiter at this time also, an energy which is still building to its peak – the aspect becomes exact on September 8. The Saturn-Jupiter trine has the potential to bring us some very powerful gifts of understanding and perspective concerning productivity and success in our efforts, if only we can take their lessons to heart, which is what the Moon offers us this weekend: a window into the subconscious, helping us understand how and why we work. This is the time to find answers about what keeps us from bringing projects to fruition, and what helps us to do so.
Mercury and Venus have just entered Libra as a team, and remind us that sometimes we can find these answers about our own work through conversation and communion with a friend or loved one. Mars’s placement nearby in Libra can make some of these conversations seem choppy or contrary, but if we don’t fix on those feelings, we can find some good ideas emerging from our interaction with others.
Questions for this Moon:
How do I bring my ideas to fruition?
What does my work give to others?
How can I put my time and energy to best use?
What is my own true and easy style of working?
