Once every month the Sun and the Moon come together creating a new light cycle which is the exact time at which the lunar newness occurs, but the energy and effects are a week-long process with that exact moment happening right in the middle. The Earth aligns as the lunar planet is between the Earth and the Sun. The following three (September 17, October 16, November 14) are unique and are known as Supermoons.
A Supermoon happens when the new one occurs at the same time as the celestial body is closest to the Earth, which is known as the perigee of its orbit around the Earth. Although it may not be visible to us, the difference in the ocean’s tide is greatly affected by the closeness. Imagine how powerful the orb of night must be for it to have such a significant effect, and what that means for human beings.
As the Moon and Sun combine in the astrological sign of Virgo, this becomes a time for new beginnings or new directions. During the waxing process (time between the new and full moons), we accumulate energy and ideas while it becomes increasingly visible. Because of the natural evening darkness with only light from the stars, and without the lunar light, our regeneration and cleansing are important. Recharging and resting are super important during this lunar phase.
This lunar process is the phase where we set forth our intentions but its probably wise to keep it to ourselves during this time of minimal light. The horoscope of all astrological signs will aim toward a positive direction. Consequently, we want to keep our full access slightly in the dark for the time being. If we have goals or ideas for a new project, this is the perfect time to set those goals and to begin a new passion or interest. Initiate a new project and energize it by keeping a positive mindset during our recharging process. Plant the seeds of the future so that when the moonlight is full at harvest time, we can bask in the beauty of what has been accomplished.
Signs Affected Most
Our lunar planet is quite powerful in terms of energy and position so whether we understand or not, the effects are strong. Every living thing under the stars is affected by the new energy. This conjoining occurs with the Sun under the Zodiacal sign in Astrology known as Virgo (August 23-September 22). While everyone feels the effects for nearly a week on some level, there are some signs in Astrology that are affected more than the rest including; Virgo (August 23-September 22), Libra (September 23-October 22), and Capricorn (December 22-January 19). The Horoscope for each of these signs is unique and more intense in positive and confident ways.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
This September 17 is completely centered on you since the lunar body and the Sun combine in Virgo. As a very altruistic person, focusing on yourself will likely be a difficult task; however, this is your time and passion. There is a definite passion that you’ve been tossing around in your creative mind that needs you to pursue it now. This is your specific opportunity to act on those goals with the perfect sight and accuracy for you to build a rooted and substantial future. This possibility should not pass you by, Virgo.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Although you are a social person, Libra, this lunation is best used by you to reflect and heal from past pain. Time for you to be alone to connect with yourself in a real way to understand who you are as opposed to who others believe you to be. Enjoy being alone and actually find things that you can do by yourself. As difficult as it may be for you, make yourself the priority for your own recuperation and self-awareness. A new lunar orb is about new directions and healing.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
For you, Capricorn, this is your time to shine, time to step out of your comfort zone, and time to take a leap of faith. Ideas and creations from your head, heart, and dreams, are within your grasp. You have a propensity for taking everything slowly and imagining all the negative possibilities. However, right now is the call-to-action that you need to answer by taking a risk and seeking new experiences. Time for Capricorn to reach for the stars.
