Consciousness Takes a Spiritual Leap

Our Virgo New Moon is stimulating a rise in worldwide awareness through a spiritual jump in consciousness. This is a momentous rise that represents a direct shift in human evolution. On the personal level, what this means for each of us is that we’ll be able to more easily see the shifts as they are occurring.

It’s important to remember that we are in the midst of extraordinary times in world history. The shifts we speak of are related to the coming Aquarian Age, as well as larger Cosmic cycles that are also converging. Because this is unprecedented, there is no way to foresee what and how world events will unfold. We are beginning, however, to see the tell-tail signs of these major shifts from our first-hand vantage point.

Within this process, the current New Moon indicates a major shift in which consciousness has the spiritual potential to spilt from the ‘normal’ awareness of our five senses into a more highly refined multidimensional quality of awareness.

In astrological terms, one of the ways to understand our shift to becoming multidimensional is through our ability to connect consciously with the transcendent processes of the three outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto). This spiritual leap in our evolution is another outer manifestation of the Aquarian Age (ruled by Uranus) coming into full view.

Virgo's Qualities of Awareness

Virgo is a complex archetype with many aspects. The Virgo qualities that most support our New Moon are connected to Virgo’s traits of mastery and refinement. Along these lines, Virgo is also known for attention to detail because Virgo’s quality of mastery also requires the skills of precision and accuracy.

During the coming lunar cycle, these Virgo influences will enable new qualities of subtle awareness, with new personal levels of mastery regarding your perceptions of reality. New levels of access to these more subtle and spiritual realms will be very expanding for your consciousness. You will be able to see what’s occurring around you in more detail and context, whereas in the past you may have missed the subtleties.

Other relevant qualities of Virgo include skillful work and the patience required to master the subtle energies of both mind and body. In the beginning stages of conscious spiritual development, it is necessary to discover the subtle distinction between one’s own unique experiences and those of others.

As a mutable earth sign, Virgo is able to distribute energy (mutable) in ways that improve a person’s circumstances. Virgo’s desire to improve life circumstances enables us to work hard in order to gain the skills necessary to make life better, both for ourselves and the world around us.

As an earth sign, Virgo has a natural affinity for the principles of nature. Virgo intuitively understands that a connection to nature is an important stepping stone to one’s connection with the larger universal forces of the cosmos. It takes skill to be able to see and understand the subtle processes behind nature.

Virgo is also known for the commitment to service. In a spiritual context, all of these Virgo skills and abilities enable one’s soul to become engaged in making the world a better place.

New Moon Shift in Consciousness  

Our Virgo New Moon shift in consciousness isn’t merely an increase, but an actual spiritual jump. We can characterize this leap as a bifurcation or splitting from the old forms of limited awareness to new types of multidimensional consciousness.  This jump is enabling us to function now at a higher plateau of awareness.
The Sabian archetype for the New Moon beautifully illustrates this new level of awareness. The Sabian for 5° Virgo reads:

ARCHETYPE: The opening of new levels of consciousness.
COMMENTARY: The process of becoming aware of the energy forces behind the manifestation of “name and form.” This is a beginning stage of consciousness, moving one toward the ability to distinguish and perceive the subtle, non-physical reality that forms one’s uniqueness and personal experience.

This archetype introduces the term “spiritual agencies,” which is another way of describing the grids of light and frequencies that operate within the subtle realm of spiritual awareness. This awareness can be both internal or external. It can be personal and it can also be felt within the larger collective. Each person’s experience of these realms is unique, dependent on their own spiritual connection, and should not be compared to another.
As we all continue to integrate the new Aquarian Age paradigm, an increase in consciousness worldwide will continue to occur. This process has been happening incrementally since 2012 with occasional big leaps. We have reached the time for another big leap, which makes our Virgo New Moon extremely exciting.

The Split Kite Pattern

Astrology ChartThe Sabian archetype for the New Moon illustrates and describes the new level of awareness that is now available, but there is more to the story. Our New Moon chart has a ‘split Kite’ pattern. A kite pattern indicates a focused type of growth that elevates consciousness in a specific direction.

The unusual split kite pattern at the New Moon indicates a breaking away from the limitations of consciousness we have experienced in the past. The new level of consciousness that is possible with this particular kite involves seeing the world around you with a greater degree of subtly and nuance.

Looking at the chart, there are two definite splits in the kite formation. The first split occurs along the spine of the kite. In this split formation, the crown is divided between Jupiter and Neptune with the tail of the kite at Mercury. The second split occurs between Uranus and Mars at the left kite wing with Pluto at the right wing.

The most significant aspect of this kite chart is the crown formed by the transcendent planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Pluto joins the crown to the rest of the kite, and also completes the trine with Mars (see chart). With Pluto being the most powerful planet in the solar system, and poised to enter Aquarius in March 2023, the potential impact on consciousness at this time is huge.

Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto operate unconsciously within the larger collective, but they are beginning to operate more consciously among those with a spiritual orientation. This may be the New Moon where many of us consciously shift to a level at which these three outer planets become accessible within our own daily experience.

The Spiritual Bifurcation of Consciousness

I’m calling this current jump in awareness a spiritual bifurcation of consciousness. The bifurcation (separation) comes because we are breaking free of fear-based perceptions of reality, through our new qualities of awareness. We have new abilities to see the larger patterns of change, transition, and spiritual influence operating within our lives and the world around us. This represents a complete split from the limitations of the past.
It’s important to observe the significant role that Mars plays in this process. Mars rules personal action, and brings transformative experiences into our lives. In this kite chart, Mars brings a tangible awareness to the subtlety of the transcendent planets. It allows us to act and react to the more subtle spiritual energies.
This further indicates that the New Moon is providing the skill and the active participation (Mars) that is needed in order for the awareness shift that the Kite represents to occur. For example, Mars enables us to transform (heal) our fears, which are indicated by the shadow aspects of the Neptune/Mercury opposition in the kite. This includes the ability to transcend misinformation and propaganda.
This is an exciting New Moon chart because of the potential for a huge shift to occur worldwide. At this point in time, we are watching in real-time the shifting energies and changes that we know must occur in order for the larger Aquarian Age energies to take root and begin to become more apparent in our daily lives.


Aquarian energies, with the help of our three outer planets, are continuing to stimulate big changes in each of us, and in humanity’s consciousness as a whole. These shifts are directly associated with a more rapid spiritual type of development that embraces the highest manifestation that the Aquarius/Uranus archetypes represent.

During this lunar cycle you can leverage Virgo’s qualities of proficiency so you can become more aware of how the subtle energies of consciousness are operating in your life. This will allow you to see how your circumstances are unfolding within the larger patterns of your life, including world events that have been missed in the past.

Happy New Moon,
Steven Shroyer
