Virgo and Taurus

“God doesn't require us to succeed, he only requires that you try.” (Mother Teresa, Sun in Virgo, Moon in Taurus)

The Moon is in Taurus from 23:17 GMT, 11 September 4:26 GMT, 14 September 2014, while the Sun is in Virgo. 

This is a Disseminating Moon or Waning Gibbous Moon, which is traditionally a receptive time, when existence may either ask or offer something. This makes it an ideal moment for tuning in to our original intention, operating accordingly.

Once we have received repeated confirmations that a course of action is right, and even taken some initial steps in that direction, doubts may assail us. Yet, what you have put in motion needs to be concluded with integrity and commitment. When you do not complete your creative cycles, you tend to separate yourself from the flow of life and this brings confusion or depression.

If our ideas and visions are truly transformational and decisive for our life, we cannot expect to be devoid of fear when we are faced with taking action. As a matter of fact, the fear is mainly there to warn us that we have reached the critical point, when we need to move from the realm of ideas into the pragmatic reality. This is an edge, and is important not to be alone here. It is essential that we rely on the presence of a higher power.

“And God said come to the edge." "I can't. I’m afraid." "Come to the edge." "I can't. I’ll fall" "Come to the edge." I went to the edge and God pushed me…….and I flew." (Guillaume Apollinaire, Sun in Virgo, Moon in Taurus)

Given the earthy (Virgo/Taurus) nature of this Disseminating Moon, there may be something in our life that needs to be openly manifested and practically done, with diligence, determination and dedication. It is not a time for emotional expressions or intellectual disquisitions. This is the opportunity to go beyond the traps of conventional self-consciousness, taking a leap into our pragmatic gifts and giving outer form to our intentions.

Virgo and Taurus are in a trine aspect (120°), which produces an easy, balanced and mutually supporting link between the signs involved. This can bring major benefits when there is clarity of intent and focus. If this is not the case the benefits will develop unconsciously and gained by whoever holds a clear intention.
