092 | Virgo New Moon: Measure Twice, Cut Once
April and Jen enjoy the meticulous Virgo New Moon from Trine City, where summer is winding down in the Northern Hemisphere! Meanwhile, detailed Mars opposes bedhead Neptune, and Venus faces some hard questions from Pluto. But no worries: Things look up the second week as the flow of communication abounds with a Grand Air Trine; Mars and Pluto lend focus; the Sun and Uranus offer a chance to redefine ourselves; and Venus enjoys bonbons with Jupiter before heading into Scorpio. Plus: Leave us a voicemail message, won’t you?

02:38 – Our first week (Sep. 2-8) kicks off with Mars opposed Neptune (Sep. 2) on the Sabian symbol 23 Virgo, “The lion tamer.” Neptune in Pisces is on, “Spiritist phenomena.” It’s the uber-organized world vs. the non-physical realm! (Revisit Ep. 29 to hear about when this cycle began!)
04:46 – Why are Mars and Neptune odd bedfellows?
06:15 – Mercury, at 7.54 Libra, trines Saturn in Aquarius (Sep. 4). This is excellent for focus and completion of projects!

09:40 – Venus, at 24.32 Libra, squares Pluto in Capricorn (Sep. 5). Do your values and money reflect your goals? What’s more important, relationships or ambitions? (Review Ep. 66. And learn about conjunctions via Schoolhouse Rock!

25:14 – Venus enters Scorpio (Sep. 10-Oct. 8), searching for depth, passion, and authenticity. It’s a good time to work out any long-standing problems in relationships. “Love is a verb.” Or as Clint Black would sing, it’s “Something That We Do.”
