This month’s Virgo New Moon on September 17 at 7:01 EST, forms a grand trine with Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn and Sedna in Taurus. New moons always usher in new cycles in the area of life they activate. With this cycle connecting to the major planets Saturn, Pluto, and Sedna, all in earth signs, it will bring stability once the purification process is complete. Sedna in Taurus wants peace and harmony for all life in our planet’s eco-system. Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn demand integrity in our structural systems where secret power abuses (Pluto) have caused severe injustice and profound lack of integrity (Saturn).
In the US Chart
This month’s Virgo New Moon seeks purification, and represents the sorting process of what is still useful and what needs to go. In the US Chart, it affects the 9th, 2nd, and 6th houses. The 9th house, which governs belief systems, religion, and the larger meaning of life, is opposite the 3rd house, which can signify having a “frog in the well” perspective that limits our vision to the greater picture unfolding. As this new moon triggers the 9th house “big picture” many new revelations will be brought into public awareness, especially as they relate to our beliefs and what we find meaningful in life. The grand trine that includes Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn activates the US Chart’s natal Pluto in Capricorn in the 2nd house. Pluto is exposing horrific crimes against humanity that have been secret for hundreds of years, and have subverted our financial resources and our entire eco-system. The perpetrators can no longer hide as Pluto delivers irrevocable justice to those who have tried to cover up their past deeds.
New Systems, Structures, and Values
What this means is that we can expect a new set of values (2nd house) and power structures (Pluto in Capricorn) to begin showing up. We will also see a complete restructuring (Saturn in Capricorn) of our financial and environmental resources (2nd house). Sedna in Taurus activates the US chart’s 6th house, which governs the daily grind and matters related to health. However, it also governs unequal relationships, and, while it is considered the house of service, it also refers to those who have been treated as, or who have felt like, “second class citizens”. Any injustices contributing to this perception will also be exposed and purified at this new moon. Sedna also represents indigenous cultures, so we can expect something new to unfold in this area as well. Sedna’s energy is to Earth what Pluto’s energy is to people, politics, and power. On both levels, we will see massive restructuring and revelations that may initially shock our world, yet ultimately purify what has historically sought to destroy life as we currently experience it, or know that it is meant to be: peaceful, prosperous, and equal for all.
