VIRGO NEW MOON / PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE, opposing CHIRON retro in PI (Sept 12 / 13): RE-set of Smallness to Wholeness.

12 Sep


RE-set of Smallness to Wholeness.


The Partial Solar Eclipse will be visible over South Africa, Madagascar, and Antarctica.

Astronomical Eclipse info and animation:

The areas on the Earth where the Eclipse is visible / where its path will be overhead tend to be affected by the energy of the Eclipse, for the next months to come, and beyond. I see particularly Antarctica, re: UN Climate Conference in Paris end of Nov / early Dec VIR says, we gotta do our homework and clean up our act, as citizens on Planet Earth.

Traditionally, a Solar Eclipse indicates the end of a ruler / ‘king’. Let’s see what that means for political situations in Canada with Fed. Elections coming up on Oct 19, and in other countries. Since VIR is about the Sacred Feminine, I wouldn’t be surprised if more conscientious women came into leadership.

The New Moon will be exact today, Sat Sept 12 at 11:41 pm PDT, followed by the Partial Solar Eclipse at 11:52 pm PDT (max. Eclipse).

At the locations of visibility it will be Sept 13, of course.

Here is the VIR NEW MOON chart (for Victoria, the ‘usual’ reference point):



Have you been sensing the VIRGO NEW MOON / PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE energy over the last week and month? Eclipses foreshadowing and aftermath effects that stretch out over months, some say from one pair of Eclipses to the next (twice a year).

The upcoming Partial SOLAR ECLIPSE is an exact New Moon (every Eclipse is) that has the energy of a FULL MOON!
How so?
With SUN, MOON, JUPITER in VIR, and NEPTUNE, CHIRON in PI, the theme of the PI – VIR BALANCE is written all over it.
Also MERCURY (which rules VIR), now in its ‘stormy’ pre-retro phase (M-r from Sept 17 on) adds to that.

More about the Balance theme a bit further down.


Let’s look directly at the VIR NEW MOON / PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE first:

It’s a RE-set of VIR themes through the ‘shadow-to-light’ process we’re about to experience. Many of us have already tuned into that.

Old VIRGO energy that doesn’t serve anymore comes as shadowy energy to the forefront of awareness (may be painfully so) to be ‘switched’ into a healthier, more functional, and purer vibration of VIR.


Here’s a VIRGO type ‘check list’ of ‘symptoms’ which might show their not-so-nice face now. Only to be RE-leased and RE-set.

‘Like heals like’ (we were sharing a lot about this yesterday, in our timely ASTRO~SOMATICS workshop), so here are the higher vibrational VIR equivalents listed too:

Lower Vibration of VIRGO – RE-lease: Higher Vibration of VIRGO – RE-set and Embrace:
(Self) Criticism (criticism carries self-criticism) (Self) Awareness, clarity
Worries, anxiety, and problem focus How can I help? How can I give service where needed?

What would help / serve the situation?

Frustration, nagging What do I need to discern and sort out of my life because it’s not functional or unhealthy?

What actually does work? How could it work? What needs to be tweaked?

Sweating the small stuff, fretting over details Every little thing counts and can be symbolic. Every life form in nature has its place. Maybe I feel called to do ceremony / ritual?
Health issues, esp. with digestion What is indigestible in my life? What is my body trying to tell me?
Sense of never enough, ‘smallness’, inadequacy How do I get a sense of integration as I honour and work with my skills and specialties?
‘Selective perception of the imperfection’ I am / we are / it is whole and complete. Practice IS perfect. Nature is perfect.


VIRGO’s journey has to do with alignment of the human self with cosmic consciousness, through awareness, spiritual practice, and / or acts of service.

The MOON is the esoteric ruler of VIRGO – the association with the Sacred Feminine / Priestess / Virgin and Harvest Goddesses / Mother Mary is obvious.

All of us are called to do our sacred work and practice, as we are in this Body-Temple and temple of here-now. And harvest its fruits in inner fulfillment.

The Sacred Feminine and inner alignment with Spirit-in-Form leads the way, with the PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE very close to the NORTH NODE (presently, together with LILITH in early LIBRA), going into VIR on Oct 10 – until May 2017.


Let’s take a look at the SABIAN SYMBOL for the NEW MOON degree:

SUN and MOON will be at 20° 10’ VIR – therefore I’d take the symbol for

20° VIRGO:



Pioneers Westward Bound (and bound together)

Keynote: The Need of Cooperative Effort in Reaching Any ‘New World’ of Experience.

It is difficult to know, from the original formulation of the clairvoyant’s (who channeled these symbols) vision, the type of caravan that was visualized; what seems to be clearly implied is a process in which a group of persons are journeying together – thus linking their consciousness and energies (the ‘car’ symbol) – in order to safely reach the goal of destiny. Here there is no longer any sense of competition, but an ordered and structured endeavour.

At this… stage… the past is entirely left behind; humans cooperate in the great ‘adventure in consciousness’ in a TOTALIZATION OF PURPOSE AND EFFORT.”


This SABIAN SYMBOL points to the theme of relatedness, complementariness and partnership (LIBRA NORTH NODE, LILITH and MERCURY) – nobody can ‘do this alone’. To a ‘New World of Experience’ – a new level of Consciousness, reached via intentional group cohesion.

And to the UNITY Consciousness – PISCES.


Which brings us to

* VIR NM / Eclipse opposes CHIRON retro in PI (Sept 12 / 13)

JUPITER in VI opposes NEPTUNE retro in PI (Sept 16)

Unifying Medicine and Loving, Fulfilling Service.


 Earth & Moon

Earth and Moon – We are all in THIS together.


Not ‘just’ VIR is in the picture here. As you saw in the NEW MOON chart, VIR is polarized with / balanced by planets in PISCES.

Therefore I call it a NEW MOON that acts like a FULL MOON.

The Partial Solar Eclipse in VIRGO is exactly opposite CHIRON retro in PI.

It is also a pre-cursor for the phase of the Lunar NORTH NODE (which is related to the Eclipse) in VIR (while the South Node will be in PI), from Oct 10 on, until May 2017.

Plus, JUPITER in VIR will be exactly opposite NEPTUNE retro in PI on Sept 16.


The ‘Medicine’ of vulnerability, connectivity, and unity reveals itself, as the SUN and then MOON in VIR oppose CHIRON (in PI from 2010 – 2018 / 19).

We ARE all in this together.

JUPITER (ex-ruler of PI, just entered VIR on Aug 11) dances with NEPTUNE (which is in its own Piscean domain from 2012 – 2026!), and goes face-to-face with it on Sept 16.

In other words, Planet Earth is now between SUN / MOON and CHIRON (rare), and also already and next week exactly between JUPITER and NEPTUNE (which happens only every about 13 years)


The VIR – PI axis is all about…

… from the VIR side being ‘in our temple’ of alignment with our true, holistic nature, doing our wellness practice, and using this precious life time to dedicate our gifts and skills to make the world a better place. In other words, offering sacred service.

VIR is also about digesting experiences, ordering and organizing. In the body, it rules the small intestines.

… from the PI perspective which is all-encompassing, and nothing needs to be ‘done’, our ‘job’ is rather to perhaps get our ego and attachment to a certain outcome out of the way, be open, surrender, be available, allow, flow, hold space, or simply: BE present.

In our embodiment, PI rules the immune system, our aura, energy field, the subtle bodies and chakras (as a field).



Johfra Bosschart: Pisces & Neptune


So, a combo of both PI and VIR could look like:

–       Ride the waves, immerse in your element.

–       Your skills are what comes easy.

–       Holding space for others can be the best service you can offer.

–       Clean up and play music. 

–       Energy Medicine. AstroSomatics.

–       Sacred Geometry.

–       Astrology and its practical, embodied benefits.

–       Being in the world, yet not of the world. Doing what needs to be done, yet not in attachment.

–       God helps those who help themselves. Doing our share, and trusting divine intervention.

–       Random acts of service bring fulfillment.


BALANCE is the way to go, or rather to BE:

In the ‘whirlwind’ of things that can kick us off balance – an unhealthy thing, of course – how can we infuse a situation where ‘problems’ show up or we / things are not aligned with flow, allowance, acceptance, and love, which might mean release and let go(d) (PI)?

Wee example (of many) here: This week, I had a friend here for computer support, and despite some glitchy things we could REdirect the energy of potential stress into raising vibrations and staying connected. Even a little dance in-between helps. 
When things don’t ‘work out’ (VIR) this is the opportunity (if not necessity) to get back to awareness, and connection (VIR – PI).
