The eclipse on September 13th brings a crescendo of planetary energy to propel us out of our stale routines, helping us to access our creativity and inspiration. The Moon is new in Virgo, with the Sun and Moon aligned in that sign to bring a sharp focus to matters of the practical and mundane details of our lives. Health, hygiene and effective life patterns are governed by Virgo.

The higher mind, with its intuition and wisdom, is unable to operate when the lower mind is bogged down with details that it cannot process. At this New Moon eclipse we have an opportunity to clear the lower mind and organize our thoughts.
The eclipse is also a Supermoon (coined by astrologer Richard Nolle), and at its closest point to the Earth. Where a Full Moon Supermoon is big and buoyant in the sky, the New Moon Supermoon is activated on the subconscious level. You may find yourself with heightened emotional awareness as well as reactivity under this influence, particularly if you are sensitive to lunar energies.
