Virgo New Moon - August 25, 2014

Woman Harvesting CropThe New Moon in Virgo has the potential to bring change through ingenuity and creative ideas. We need that now, especially after that last Full Moon on August 10. I had a fear that the transits of that day would hit us like a ton of bricks. I believe a significant astrological feature, as a result of the Mars transit, brought anger and despair to the surface. There is an astrological phenomenon that occurs approximately once every 10 to 20 years during a year that Mars has been retrograde. That astrological event has the potential to totally rock our boats. The last time I saw this occur was in 2001. It happened again, this year, on August 11 followed by the Ferguson riots, the death of the beloved comedian, Robin Williams, and the death of reporter James Foley. The astrological scenario is explained in more detail in this week's New Moon article.
