The Virgo new moon on September 6, 2021 makes a harmonious aspect to Uranus. So the spiritual meaning of the new moon September 2021 astrology is positive change, excitement, self-awareness and psychic ability. The September 2021 new moon also joins a star and an asteroid that both relate to prophetic ability. So this really is an excellent new moon for trusting your intuition to take advantage of rapidly changing conditions.
New Moon Meaning
The sun in conjunction with the moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating. So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress. It also gives the ability to anticipate the future and take advantage of that by quickly adapting to changing conditions. This is also a good new moon to promote humanitarian and progressive causes and to stand up for the underdog. Surgical operations are not recommended during the New Moon.
“Compassion is no longer an option – it is the key to our survival. If religious and ethical traditions fail to address these challenges, they will fail the test of time.”
The quote is from Karen Armstrong,
who is the author of “Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life” C
Face Chaos Often
Ignite a Revolution
Fire up Compassion
Yes, fire up and create an unconditional compassion revolution!
We wonder where to begin! Start with self – transformation,
growing a compassionate heart, one by one. It is a challenge
that doesn’t go away, though we sometimes try to avoid it.
The call is to stand up before our chaotic world – stand, meet the chaos, feel
the chaos, let it touch our hearts, break our hearts – feel the excruciating pain.
Cry out in grief at the possible destruction of our planet, our home, and every creature.
Make a choice, practice love and compassion as pathways to walk together.
Look to the right, look to the left and shout to each other:
“Stand by Me!” “Stand by Me!”
Our journey together will continue to be mysterious, but possible, for our God is within us who inspires and companions us on a hopeful, blessed passage to peace.
Several years ago, I attended the workshop “Hope and Sacred Activism” with Andrew Harvey. So much was inspiring, so much was challenging. The passionate wisdom expressed enabled the hope that my words might become meaningful actions and not just a continuous repetition of the same desires.
The challenge I received is to move forward, for a new being is being called to evolve within me, through greater awareness of the presence of the Divine within – a transformed being, becoming a Sacred Being is on the way. With hopeful expectation, I try to move forward and stand with others, offering love, compassion and peace to our Earth Community.
The support for all of this is that my meditations are also preoccupied by the call to be inclusively compassionate. I find my sustenance for this by trying to allow others to meticulously peck away at the door of my heart until the barriers to inclusive compassion start one by one to fall away. It is a long journey of struggle to being free for radical compassion.
Recently I remembered that in 2015 – 2016, Pope Francis opened the Jubilee Door of Mercy at St. Peter’s Basilica, which was followed by a world-wide opening of Doors of Mercy. The dynamism of these sequential acts inspired me to believe that every door I go through has the potential to be a Door of Mercy.
My heart also has the potential to open wide as a Door of Mercy and Compassion. For me, this has been a profound call to conversion – so many times I have received that call. So I begin again by visualizing the Jubilee Door of Mercy and walking through it comforted by the refrain of Psalm 135 “For God’s mercy endures forever. . .
For God’s mercy endures forever. . .
As I now end this reflection, I remind myself that I have a place in what needs to happen, but I am just a speck in the plan – We Are the Ones Who Together Can Heal the Earth, Can Save Our Home!
