New Moon September 2018 ~ Fixed Star

Mizar is found in the great bears tail and in the macrocosm is “connected with fires of a catastrophic extent and mass calamities. In personal charts, Mizar is not helpful if conjunct with ‘bad’ planets. It is not wrong to assume that, besides these handicaps, artistic emanations can also be attributed to Mizar.” The energy is also good for “tamers of wild beasts, that is men to teach bears, bulls and lions to lay aside their fierceness and share in human ways.” [1] You can see where Virgo’s reputation as a healer comes from. Virgo decan 2 energy has the patience to handle the most difficult or disturbed human beings.

New Moon September Tarot Card

New moon September 2018The tarot card that is associated with this new moon September 2018 is the 9 of pentacles which is an extremely positive and successful card and really helps counteract any of the dark edges found in this decan. You could say this card is like a positive Pluto. Wealth! This card is about hard work paying off and prosperity. Karmically this card tells of many hard lives of hard graft:

” To say that you have made a success is an understatement, but both you and I know that it was hard-earned. By the way, you have done this almost single-handedly too, with very little input from others.  This card can suggest that you have made many sacrifices or denied yourself freedom and spontaneity in order to achieve your goal or dream. You are not afraid of hard work even though you may miss out on fun in your life.” ~ teachmetarot.

This kind of energy can run itself ragged even if it doesn’t need too. So if you are the kind of person that does that, take the opportunity at this new moon sit back and rest on your laurels.

Full Moon September 2018 ~ Aspects

Moon sextile Jupiter is a beautiful blossom of an aspect that seems to breed writers of song or word in particular since Jupiter rules publishing. The imagination is expansive and pioneering, inspired by overseas or inner travel. This energy will always support having strong roots though, no matter how far afield it may voyage. Moon sextile Jupiter attracts benefactors but always pay back generously those who nurture and supported young talent.

Moon trine Pluto, from my research, seems to have much more sinister undertones than one would expect in a soft aspect. The sensitive moon combined with the sometimes hellish transformation of outer-planet Pluto is going to be hard to carry on a personal level. So we will need to channel this intense, penetrating and occasionally ruthless energy into something creative. The artistic products are not going to be light-hearted or bubble-gummy. Instead, the products will have a tinge of the underworld and/or make powerful political statements. Art made at this time will be profound and involve deep exploration of the shadow. Sometimes there will be an obsession with taboo sexual practices either as a proclivity or as something they need to expose as corrupt.

The whole minor grand trine is a gift for anyone who is out to get work published or sponsored. Anyone who has personal planets at 18º earth signs or water should feel the benefit of this talented aspect. Even 18º mutable signs stand to get some juice out of this well of inspiration. There is something for everyone at this new moon.


September new moon crystalTo make the most of all this complex, dreamy, inventive and artistic energy at this new moon September 2018 make the gods work for you by immersing yourself in Virgo decan 2 energy. If your ascendant, Sun or Moon are in the mutable signs decan 2 you might find it hard to relax and put energy into creating just for fun and not for money. To help resist any tempting drinks or druggy demons try focused meditation or yoga with the following:

Useful healing materials and props: The 9 of pentacles to gaze at, oats to eat, violet to adorn your table, Blue Lace Agate crystal to hold, music in the key of D to listen to, Myrrh, Lavender and Bergamot essential oils in a bath.

Blue Lace Agate Meaning: Helps to improve your communication if you find it hard to express your emotions without getting overwhelmed and upset. “Blue Lace Agate is a wonderful healing stone. Its soft energy is cooling and calming, bringing peace of mind. It is particularly effective for activating and healing the throat chakra allowing free expression of thoughts and feelings.” [2]

Mercury is the planet that rules Virgo and Jupiter rules Pisces on the other side of the polarity. Those Mercurial communicators out there who are plugged into this new moon should make themselves heard. The most talented will get noticed, for as you can see in the minor grand trine aspect pattern, Jupiter is the planet of patronage and publishing.
