Astrology Article: Expanding Through the Vitality of Life-Force
This month’s New Moon in Virgo is supported by a strong astrological pattern with a powerful energizing effect to support positive changes in your life. This month your expansion will come as you learn new mastery of your life force. The biggest opportunity for practicing this new mastery is through your ability to integrate and expand through personal relationships and combined group efforts.
Improving and refining are two things Virgo excels at. A third aspect of Virgo excellence is finding meaning through your work. This is effort or work that expands your life force and activates an emotional response that supports you working toward a greater purpose. There’s the potential to expand into a new sense of personal fulfillment, as you align with greater purpose to your own dharma.
Your work or participation in a group project or endeavor will support your growth, especially if this feeling of greater purpose is infused with your personal vitality and life-force. These group endeavors may include any activity, such as a sport, a business team, or a personal relationship.
One key to successfully linking your life-force to your team is through the technique of training and discipline. Mastery over your own chi is the result of training. Bringing new awareness to the discipline of mastering your life-force is commonly learned through participation in traditional sports teams, as well as activities such as Chi Gong, martial arts, yoga, hiking, and golf. This list is by no means exhaustive.
It’s important that this type of physical mastery is tied to a larger purpose, otherwise the shadow aspect of ego can rule over the physical plane, resulting in various forms of arrogance.
Mastering your life force in creative ways does not necessarily come naturally. We all have the capacity to successfully channel life-force into our endeavors, but excellence in the physical requires both time and skill to fully develop. Virgo excels at both training and discipline, which requires emotional commitment. This is especially true with Jupiter in such a strong astrological position.
With Venus balsamic to Mars, this can also be a good time for relationships that are in need of improvement. The key for relationships with this Moon is to find a greater combined purpose through the linking of your personal vitality with others. When you connect this way you will access the energy that is needed to transform your relationships in a positive way.
There is a balsamic Venus conjunct Mars in the zodiac sign of Leo. This planetary configuration supports relationships through the natural process of transformation. This process could mean a natural ending for some relationships, however most relationships will simply let go of old patterns as they prepare to embrace new and stronger values that connect and promote growth together.
Jupiter in Virgo opposite Neptune supports awareness of the magnitude of energy available, as well as insight into techniques for managing your life-force for personal expansion.
With the New Moon conjunct the Moon’s North Node, developing a new life skill that enhances your own fulfillment is a real possibility. This North Node position is an indicator of the greater importance this New Moon can play in the bigger picture of your life.
The support for expansion through training and discipline comes from a combination of factors, including natural support from Virgo, emphasis from North Node, and the expansion of both awareness and management from the Jupiter configuration.
The Solar Eclipse
When the Moon passes directly between Earth and the Sun we experience a solar eclipse. At this moment in time, the new lunar cycle is infused with a boost of additional Solar purpose, which offers extra support to the potentials of the New Moon. This extra support also sets the stage for the upcoming lunar eclipse on Sept 27.
This month’s additional solar purpose (at the solar eclipse) expands your life experience to become more authentic. More in alignment with who you really are and with your purpose. This enables you to transmit this experience into something useful through the skillful use of your life-force. In other words, this solar eclipse is preparing you for expanding your awareness into a more pure form of “being-ness.” All of these potentials will be explored further in the upcoming Lunar Eclipse article.
The opportunities this month, including the upcoming Lunar Eclipse, are uniquely positioned to take your life to the next level. Have a fantastic lunar month.
