September 6, at 5:52 pm PDT, the Sun and Moon came together in Virgo, marking the New Moon. A New Moon always packs its own punch, but September 6 featured several intense astrological aspects that contributed to a potent energetic mix:
Mars in Virgo trined Pluto in Capricorn
Venus in Libra trined Jupiter in Aquarius
Sun in Virgo trined Uranus in Taurus
Taken together, these planetary interactions bring forth a fated feeling. What Uranus has been shaking up in your life over the past three and half years has been coming to a crescendo over the last month (check out last month's Full Moon in Aquarius Horoscope to read more about how this astrology has been showing up for you recently). This New Moon is a turning point, a new beginning, that will take you toward that radical new reality that Uranus has been pulling you toward. Mars trining Pluto is a signature of power, courage, and will. The trine between the two benefic planets, Venus and Jupiter, is auspicious, a signature of luck and abundance. The Sun trining Uranus shines a light on this radical shift, clarifying your new path forward. The very core of your being, your vitality, is electrified by Uranus.
