Global Hot Spot: The Virgo New Moon on September 14, 2023

Margaret Sanger – American birth control activist, sex educator, writer and nurse, whose pioneering work led eventually to the formation of Planned Parenthood – was born on September 14, 1879 in Corning, NY with the Sun in Virgo, the Moon in Leo, and with a Mercury-Uranus close conjunction in Virgo exactly opposite Jupiter in Pisces. While this pattern certainly reveals her revolutionary ideas and radical lifestyle, she was also born with a powerful Mars-Pluto conjunction in Venus-ruled Taurus within 2 degrees plus a nearly-exact Chiron-Neptune conjunction also in Venus-ruled Taurus. Her natal Venus was in its own air sign of Libra. Margaret Sanger had to leave America and live in England for several years due to her fighting against the morality of the times, and this is revealed via her Saturn at 14 degrees in fiery Aries in an exact square and opposition to the USA Sun-Saturn square from Cancer to Libra.

Dateline Wednesday September 13, 2023: For those of you who are now enjoying the Astrology Cosmic Kalendar App one day at a time – but who have not yet subscribed to be able to look several weeks into the future – here are the calendar entries for two very significant days (Thursday September 14 and Friday September 15). Because every day – beyond the current 24 hours that we define as one rotation of our celestial orb on its axis – has astro-zodiacal magic, mystery and wonder is why thousands of people around the world have been tuning into the Astrological Cosmic Kalendar for the last 42 years and since it was at the heart-center of our Welcome to Planet Earth pioneering astrology newspaper/magazine during the 1980s and 1990s.

The Virgo New Moon on September 14 can make an extraordinary impact in your personal life and for all of humanity. You can read more about this powerful solar-lunar union in one of the two future calendar entries below as well as tune into the day after September 15 when Mercury in Virgo leaves retrograde motion to make a direct station. Please consider the merits of subscribing to the Astrology Cosmic Kalendar to strengthen your already developing skills as a seer who can tune into the future ahead of time.

When looking over the Virgo New Moon chart calculated for Washington, D.C. (presented at the end of this feature), you will see that underworld ruler Pluto in Capricorn is almost exactly conjunct the Midheaven, Jupiter and Uranus in Taurus surround the Rising Sign, and the far-away planet Eris in Aries is nearing a rare conjunction with the fate-destiny transiting Mean Lunar North Node.

Eris was named after the sister of Mars in mythology and Eris is considered to have powerful themes associated with strife and discord as she was the catalyst who ushered in the Trojan War. Eris was discovered on January 5, 2005, has one moon, and Eris was very prominent at the Presidential Inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017, and Eris takes 559 years to orbit the Sun. Note: More will be shared soon about Eris in a forthcoming podcast to be available in the Mark Lerner Astrology Radio AstroScope section on our website at

Important about “Dangerous Storms” in the Psychic Atmosphere: If national events develop in connection with Juno in Leo right now in a close square with Jupiter in Taurus forming within 6 hours of the New Moon, I will provide more information on our website. Juno has many sterling and admirable qualities and archetypes, but when it manifests in a negative manner then rage by the disempowered, terrorist acts as well as atmospheric storms can manifest. We have already witnessed and experienced a blazing record of heat and fires moving through the USA Pacific Northwest, and affecting Northwest and Northeast Canada. Recently, Tropical Storm Idalia, turned into a 4.0 Hurricane and inundated western Florida – a state that entered the Union on March 3, 1845 when the Sun was in Pisces, the last water sign of the zodiac, closely opposite Chiron in Virgo, and when there was a conjunction of Venus, Neptune, Mercury and Eris in late-Aquarius all on the USA Moon-Pallas Athena-Quaoar triple conjunction.

Future Cosmic Kalendar Entries for Thursday September 14 and Friday September 15 (All times are listed in PDT.)

Thursday September 14 Completing odds and ends is in sync with the continuation of the dark-of-the-moon phase that lasts until the New Moon begins at 6:41pm and activating 22 degrees of Virgo. Giving you an optimistic boost is the Moon trine to Jupiter in Taurus (5:29am) — with this harmonious 120-degree alignment repeating later on when the Moon trines Uranus in Taurus (8:39pm). While every solar-lunar union offers human souls advancement along many fronts, becoming your own worst enemy is taboo as peace-and-harmony advocate Juno in Leo makes two tense aspects - a 45-degree link to Vesta in Cancer (6:57pm) and a square to Jupiter in Taurus (11:48pm). While the cosmos is definitely testing your stamina and resolve today, get ready for tomorrow when Ceres enters Scorpio at 5:51am and Mercury stops its reversal to go direct at 1:22pm. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Friday September 15 With yesterday’s New Moon vibes backing up your overall plans for the next four weeks, make sure you have a good grasp of down-to-earth plans since the solar and lunar orbs have merged their essence in the multi-faceted sixth sign of the zodiac. A new kaleidoscope of celestial alignments is in play for you to handle as Vesta in Cancer forms a dicey, 45-degree aspect to Jupiter in Taurus (3:23am) followed quickly by the Moon in Virgo making its monthly polarity to Neptune in Pisces (3:31am). Plus, the Moon trines Pluto in earth signs (6:50am) which begins a void lunar zone that continues until the Moon enters airy Libra (10:46am). Recognize another trio of heavenly alignments as Ceres enters Scorpio (5:51am) in a cycle lasting until November 24 while the Moon makes its monthly union with mental strategist and problem-resolver Pallas Athena (12:42pm) and the Sun in Virgo forms a harmonious and intuition-boosting trine to Uranus in Taurus (6:25pm). Despite the wide array of cosmic influences just reported, the big news is Mercury halting its recent reversal at 1:22pm to go direct at 8 degrees of Virgo. Tune into the following all-important themes associated with the divine messenger planet – communication, learning and primary education, words and language, transportation and travel plans, business and trade, messages and paperwork, health and medical concerns, the five senses, air and breathing, wind and temperature changes, as well as acts of apparent magic, sleight of hand, and theft. Don’t fall prey to bogus claims and hoodwinking endeavors that will end with regret. Be aware that Mercury, while no longer retrograde, is barely moving over the next day or two. Therefore, Mercury’s power is extra strong in all respects. Mercury will continue its direct motion until December 12 when it will begin another reversal at 9 degrees of Capricorn. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
