Namaste Well Wishers,
Welcome to Day Twelve of Project Moon Log,
The Moon leaves Virgo today at 11:14 am EDT and then is Void-of-Course (VOC) most of the day until 10:04 pm EDT when the Moon enters Libra. For further information about the Void-of-Course Moon, please look to the right of this post under the category Void-of-Course, of course!
As most of the day will be spent under the Void-of-Course Moon, it could really be worth revisiting. What will the day look and feel like? Does it mean most people will be spaced out and confused or all Zen like? I’m curious!
The Waxing Gibbous Moon rises in the East in the mid-to-late afternoon and it’s almost fully illuminated face can be seen before sunset with ease.
So close to the Full Moon, and yet… what we have to do instead is wait!
To look at our heartfelt wish made at the New Moon, those seeds of intentions seem fully formed, but looks can be deceiving at this time. Astrologer, April Kent Elliott gives us the analogy of baking a cake in her book Practical Astrology, if we were to look at it sitting there in the oven we’d be certain that it was finished. Even by putting a toothpick in as a test, we could still miss the fact that it was still a little gooey in the middle.
We are to resist thinking our dream or intentions are fully realized just yet. Instead, this is the time for some fine-tuning and analyzing. Otherwise, there will be something half-baked about the result and we will miss achieving the true potential of our intention or wish.
Project Moon Log – Observations for the Moon in Virgo
What did you observe about the Virgo Moon energy? Did your home get a deep cleaning into the dusty neglected corners? Ours did! Papers filed away? Yes. Cross some things off your To Do List? Good!
Cooking a meal was a breeze, vegetables got washed, chopped and even stored away for creating future meals.
Even got into an old jewelry box and admired the pieces my niece has lovingly made for me over the years, ones friends have made or bought for me too and then packed them all up neatly and more efficiently.
Did you ever see the film Amélie where, at its beginning, the narrator describes things that Dad, Mum, Amélie and Cat enjoy and how Mum and Dad love emptying the contents of their handbag and toolbox, cleaning them out, then rearranging with such delight. That’s the kind of satisfaction the Virgo Moon is going for, sans doute! The intro is found below if you’d like to have a look.
The ways to share your observations about this Virgo Moon are many; for example, by leaving a comment here or e-mailing directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Pourquoi pas?
We will take a look at the characteristics of the Moon in Libra tomorrow.
Until then, blessings on your day in every way!
