Tuesday morning the Virgo Moon conjuncts the north node and opposes Chiron in Pisces. This of course puts Chiron on the south node, as it has been for a bit. I don’t care for the good/bad language around the nodes. I prefer a less charged, less judgmental tack.
Chiron sits in familiar territory. Ideally Chiron represents experience that comes along with pain, or pain that comes along with experience, learning, getting something out of it. On the south node, this has happened. We’re touching what has happened.
The Virgo Moon on the north node is the discerning emotional center standing apart and observing, through the heart and mood, and leaning into discovery. You feel what you have to learn, what we’re moving toward learning. But without the focus of pain in the past, where would you look for material? This is ability to look at the thing you need to learn from… and feel it… but without diving back into it as your present reality.
And it brings an earthy practicality that the mood curates. Okay, there’s the thing; it feels this way… what now? What is there to learn from it? It’s bringing up a subject in our lives that is a deep well of material. We’ll never be bored because there’s always this thing! Oh the learning!
It comes up pre-eclipse. We’ll always have this wound to learn from, but there’s something in that to be released soon. We’re ready to move up and explore better aspects of the puzzle. Same game, pithier insights and challenges. Level up!
Virgo Moon is earthy and practical. If you feel good, you’re on task. If you could feel better, find a task to tackle. Identify something that needs doing and do it. Wet yourself? Don’t sit around in wet pants. Simple.
Mercury and the Sun are conjunct in Virgo trine Mars in Sadge: chop wood, carry water… and do it with a spring in your step!
The Moon moves from Virgo to Libra in the night. The eclipse is close. Enjoy the run-up, the anticipation. We remember the breakthroughs because they time-stamp reckonings; but there are more meadow-moments and mundane satisfactions than breakthroughs. Those are important too.
