The New Moon in Virgo, which we  celebrate this Sunday has an intriguing Sabian Symbol: A Ouija Board!  A Ouija Board is symbol of intuitive communication, a way to connect to spirit guides.  It’s time to travel,  perhaps to travel alone, inward.  Virgo has a solitary thread which is often hard to discern in our sociable nature.  After all, the ‘ruler’ of Virgo is Mercury, lord of communication.  But a Virgo must listen to inner guides, and must do this alone on an inward spiral.

This new Moon which takes place in Virgo marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hoshannah.  By tradition, a spiral  bread is eaten on this holiday.

A spiral is the way of the underground water pathways.  Surely, if the earth has underground water patterns, we must as well.  And the solitary journey inward  will be very significant for this new Moon, because Sun and Moon are exactly opposite  watery Neptune in Pisces. At the last full  Moon, August 26 we celebrated the Virgo Pisces axis,  a representation of the healer and healing. https://sarahfuhro.wordpress.com/2018/08/24/medicine-of-water-and-snakes/.

The Sabian Symbol for this degree continues the theme of healing through solitary travel inward.  Neptune’s degree is symbolized by: In the quiet of his study, a creative individual experiences a flow of inspiration.’  The individual aspect of the creative process is emphasized as is the individual’s need for concentration and at least inner quiet. He must have faith in his own SUBJECTIVE STRENGTH.’    

The healing theme continues with the Virgo Sun and Moon in concert with Neptune in Pisces.  Music (Pisces)  might be an important theme as you find a quiet moment to celebrate this tender beginning.

But why call this Moon chat, Pilgrim’s Progress?  All new Moons suggest a fresh start, a release of old stories and anxiety, a transformation of identity.  This Moon seems to suggest sacred travel.   Maybe, because the Virgo Pilgrim has to settle her affairs before she sets out?  A Pilgrim has to travel light, to be resourceful, to accept the ups and downs of travel, the need to acknowledge that he is vulnerable.  Looking at the chart, over and over again, I came upon a possible impetus for the pilgrimage, theme.  Uranus is opposite Venus.   A deep and mysterious love (Venus in Scorpio) is shaken by a Uranic thunderstorm.   The pilgrimage site is underground (Uranus in Taurus).  Here is a place of absolute renewal, a death and rebirth, which cannot be experienced except through a dynamic and electric experience with the earth!
