New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo September 1st, 2016

On September 1st, 2016 we collectively step into the exceedingly powerful energy of the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo. This New Moon is also part of an ongoing T-Square as it opposes Neptune in Pisces and squares Saturn and Mars in Sagittarius, adding even more potency to the energy of this time.

During the August lunar cycle we stepped into creative self-expression with the Leo New Moon and then implemented a creative authenticity check with the Full Moon in Aquarius. Now, with this solar eclipse we are invited ground our vision and focus on the actual human mechanics of manifestation.

What does this mean energetically? We could say that there is a new door ready to open for humanity, but we must look with meticulous eyes in order to recognize it. We could say too that we are beginning a new chapter, but somehow that language doesn't feel strong enough - the truth is that we are ready to begin an entirely new book! So, what will the book, our human story, be about as we enter this next phase of collective human evolution? As we seek the answer let us recognize that we are ALL writing our own parts to this new story and this solar eclipse is the time to get to work!

We can spend all day dreaming, visioning, ideating and emoting, but if we do not take that creative energy and ground it into physical form, it’s all for not in terms of life on planet earth. So, during this time let us take radical personal responsibility and start with the refinement of our lives as individuals. As we shift for the highest good individually, so too does the collective. 

What physical form has your life taken? This Virgo time is the perfect moment to take a "life inventory" and let the critical energy guide us in identifying any areas that may need a tune up. We must be humbly willing to see what is wrong in order to make it right and we must begin with ourselves first in order to support the greater whole.

So, during this Virgo time, we have the opportunity to get down to the nitty gritty details of our lives and get real about what needs to be done.  How could we improve our relationships? What must actually be done on a practical level to manifest our mission? What tangible steps can we take to improve the state of our health? How could we love ourselves more deeply? How can we make a greater effort to be of service in the world?

All that matters now is that you make an honest self-improvement list and engage the willingness to take the first step toward positive change - just be sure to take the second step tomorrow. Don't get overwhelmed by the big picture, just focus on the improvements one step at a time. Form a sustainable routine and recognize that this is how lasting change is made. In fact, sustained routine is the "practical magic" that enables our dreams to collapse into physical form.

This human story can be a book about dreams made real - about shifts in consciousness on an individual and collective level - about sustainability, healing, innovation, connection and love - but big dreams start with small changes and the time is now to become the change you wish to see.
