New Moon in Virgo September 20, 2017: Solitary Witch

Date: Wednesday September 20, 2017

Moonbeams: Witchery & Surrending

Our New Moon in Virgo features 5 planets in Virgo with some auspicious configurations for magic.

Virgo is the sign of the Virgin which is all about being one with one’s self, and not needing anyone to define you. Virgo is a very solitary sign because it spends a great deal of time alone putting up walls of reserve and solitude in order to examine the divine details from a place of quietude. This encapsulates Virgo in a pristine crystalline structure that allows Virgo to view every situation from a place of clarity and reserve. Mercury, the ruler of Virgo is still conjunct Mars meaning that even Virgo’s are having trouble trusting information coming through at this time. Thought processes have quickened, but at the expense of intuition which is the cleaning agent of Virgo. Mars opposite Neptune is distorting our dreams and wishes, so the energy is very messy and in Virgo season, this is the equivalent to hell breaking loose. Saturn squaring the New Moon is putting pressure on the New Moon to clean up this confusing mess and the Moon is freaking out blaming itself for this kerfuffle.

If we go back to the basic archetype of Virgo, it’s one of solitude and quietude. Releasing blame and self critical behaviour is the best “cleaning agent” at this time. Mercury opposite Neptune is allowing us to weave spells of magic, to use affirmations and mantras to achieve the desired results. Having a heart to heart conversation with your guides and the universe will alleviate the pressures from Mercury and Saturn at this time.

It’s time to prune your broomsticks, get out your grimoires, and polish your crystals. The greatest lesson this New Moon has to offer us is that we are not the Be All and End All. There is no shame in asking the universe for help or calling upon higher forces for assistance. Most of us have been going through some major transformations this last little while do to the eclipses, and as a result we have found that we have been putting extreme pressures upon ourselves in order to get through the changes we have been experiencing. Part of the lesson of the Mercury Mars conjunction has been about releasing control. This is one of the hardest things for Virgo to accomplish, but surrendering control by calling upon higher forces is what will allow you to see the divine in the details as opposed to just a messy situation. We cannot forget that Virgo is a Mutable Earth sign which means that changes we co-create now will have a long lasting effect. This is why Virgo is the sign of the Witch. A witch is only a person who in her centredness invokes spirit to create change.  What a better time for magic?

Circe- The Witch in You #octoberoracle

Circe is fascinating mythology. Deemed a minor Goddess of magic, she is also known as a nymph, sorceress and enchantress who resides on the island of Aeaea – a mythical place mentioned in Homer’s Odyssey.

She was the daughter of Helius, the god of the Sun and Perse, an Oceanid – one of thousands of daughters of the seas, also known as mermaids and sirens. She is said to be the mother of the Minotaur and to turn her enemies into animals of they cross her and to be extremely knowledgeable of herbs and toxins.

It is claimed in Homer’s Odyssey, that Odysseus was on his travels to Ithaca,when he landed upon Aeaea and discovered Circe living in a mansion within a clearing that was protected by lions and wolves. The guests were welcomed by these creatures and Circe, offered them to sit at a feast as she worked at her loom. Unbeknown of Odysseus’s crew, she had laced part of the meal and they were all turned into pigs with a wave of her wand as they gorged themselves on her offerings. Eurylochus, who was suspicious of Circe from the get go, stayed out of the feasting and warned Odysseus and the others who had remained on the ship. Odysseus wanted to rescue his men but was warned by Hermes (Mercury) to use a special herb to thwart her powers, or she would render his ‘manhood’ useless. He followed Hermes advice, freed his men, then remained by Circe’s side for one year, drinking, eating and manhooding. After this year, he was released and able to return to his land of Ithaca.

The asteroid Circe in your natal chart can indicate where you have the ability to bewitch others, it is how and where you experience magical events in your life, it also indicates how you seek non-traditional answers to your most burning questions.

For example; I have Circe in Aquarius in my 9th House

This is all about breaking through limiting beliefs, cultural and social norms and expectations as you bring to life new ways of thinking, new forms of learning, expansion and awareness. The magic is in your original interpretation of reality. You use that magic to teach others, to pave new roads.

I can definitely see how my originality, uniqueness, and overall mystical vibe is some real potent magic. I’ve always found being misunderstood difficult, however it is actually me weaving spells, and enchanting others, who have only excluded me, because of my threatening sorcery!

Check to see where Circe is in your natal chart, and unleash your inner witch!

Stay tuned, I will be doing some blog posts on Hekate & Medea, the other 2 asteroid witches!

Practical Magic #octoberoracle

 

Practical Magic has to be one of my favourite Witchy movies, for its domestic magic, tight knit family, great acting, and most importantly the stunning Victorian home that was built for the film (on an ancient Indian Burial Ground, and later torn down).I think a witch’s lair is just as important as her cauldron and broomstick, as this is the energy field she will be working directly with. If home is where the heart is, than for witches, home is where the magic is.

What I love most about this story is that all the Owens ever wanted was to find true love. After casting what seemed like an innocent love spell, actually came true in the most unexpected package. Isn’t that what magic is all about anyways? Intention with surprising results? As Sally Owens says at the end of the film

“There are some things, after all, that Sally Owens knows for certain: Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder. Keep rosemary by your garden gate. Add pepper to your mashed potatoes. Plant roses and lavender, for luck. Fall in love whenever you can.”
