Scorpio has been relatively quiet since the Mars retrograde in spring 2016; a time when, among other things, Donald Trump really emerged from the woodwork and began his rise to power. Yet now Jupiter is taking up residence for at least a year, and the Sun joins both Jupiter and Mercury in Scorpio early Monday.
This week offers yet another interesting and complex round of astrology, all on the heels of the Libra equinox. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, the scales of that sign have tipped in the direction of night being longer than day. This also begins a new season, with the attendant surge of power coming from the Earth, in all hemispheres.
At the core of this week’s astrology is the Virgo New Moon, exact at 1:29 am EDT on Wednesday, Sept. 20. Can you believe it’s been a month since the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse? And quite a month it’s been. Likewise, as Eric writes, the Virgo New Moon is a high-impact event.
