I hope you have been having a great summer. For many it has been dominated by Venus Retrograding through Leo. This can bring a rethink of our style, appearance, hair styles, love lives and creative style. It was no accident that the Barbie Movie came out on the first day of Venus Retrograde, they consulted an astrologer and it is known that the original Barbie doll was launched in 1959 when Venus was also Retrograde in Leo, success breeds success in Astrology.

Virgo, the mutable or double-bodied earth sign ruled by Mercury, ushers us into a period of introspection and meticulous self-analysis. It can represent unattainable perfection and challenges us to recognise that in ourselves and find the joy in the journey.

It is a time when the Maiden's keen eye meets the dark night sky, inviting us to reassess our paths and cleanse our spirits. The Virgo New Moon, on September 14th, amplifies these energies, presenting us with an opportunity to start anew with precision and clarity.

Retrograde Season A Cosmic Pause As we navigate the celestial dance, we find ourselves in the midst of Retrograde Season—a period when the planets appear to move backward in the sky. Mercury, the swift messenger, will be turning direct on 15 September, clearing communication channels and enhancing our ability to reason and articulate. This shift brings a welcome reprieve from the miscommunications and technological glitches that often accompany Mercury retrograde.

Venus The Morning Star's Reawakening Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, has also been on a celestial journey of her own through the Underworld. Having been retrograde, we saw her turn direct on 3 September, bringing with her the promise of renewed love, harmony, and creativity. As Venus regains her brilliance in the morning sky, our relationships and aesthetic sensibilities are infused with a new sense of vitality. You may see her with the naked eye, shining brightly like a star in the morning sky, just ahead of the rising sun.

Jupiter The Expansive Giant's Retreat Jupiter, the benevolent Planet, ruler of expansion and growth, will embark on its retrograde journey on 4 September until 31 December 2023. During this time, we may find ourselves drawn inward, seeking wisdom and understanding within the depths of our own consciousness. It is a period for reevaluating our beliefs and philosophical perspectives, ultimately leading to a more profound spiritual connection.

He is close, by Whole Sign, to Retrograding Uranus In Taurus, so they are both asking us to re evaluate our values and self worth. These Astro Mindfulness exercises may help you connect to what this means for you. Return to them at any time, whenever related issues appear for you. This is most likely to happen when the Moon or the planets aspect your personal chart rather than on the dates given.

Eclipse Season Libra and Taurus-Cosmic Revelation? The New Moon sees us getting organised and ready before Eclipse season. I am already being asked what is in the air as people feel the energy build. We are poised on the brink of an impending eclipse season that will unfold in October 2023, highlighting the signs of Libra and Taurus. Eclipses are potent catalysts of change, and they often bring significant events and transformations into our lives.

In Libra, the sign of balance and relationships, the Solar Eclipse on 14 October will prompt us to reevaluate the dynamics of our partnerships and seek equilibrium. It may unveil hidden truths and illuminate the path to harmonious coexistence.

The Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on 28 October will encourage us to contemplate our material security and values. It will beckon us to plant the seeds of abundance and sustainability in our lives, grounding our aspirations in the fertile earth of Taurus.

In conclusion, the Virgo New Moon heralds a period of focus and introspection, ushering us into through the enigmatic realms of Retrograde Season as the personal planets dance around each other. Some begin their direct path, Venus's and Mercury's reawakening, and Jupiter's retreat. As we prepare for the forthcoming eclipse season in October 2023, the cosmic ballet continues, inviting us to dance in harmony with the celestial rhythms and uncover the secrets of our own existence. In these moments of cosmic alignment, we find the wisdom to navigate the intricate tapestry of our lives with grace and purpose.

The overarching message is to Trust The Journey, know that life is a journey of ups and downs and learn to ease into both, judging neither.
