Chodesh Tov Elul, The King is in the Field!

Monday's New Moon in Virgo - "The Virgin," Mutable Earth, the month of Elul, the tribe of Gad, the Planet Mercury (Kochav Chamah -  כוכב חמה) is closely followed by Rosh Chodesh Elul on Tuesday this week.

 A "New Moon" is when the Sun and Moon are conjunct (at the same position) - this New Moon is close to where Venus (Noga  נוגה ) is currently stationed, also in the early Degrees of Virgo. 

Sun/Moon/Venus in Virgo is focused on "borer" - sifting, evaluating, choosing, discerning, separating that which is useful from that which is not. It's about cleaning the schmutz and preparing for use that which is sacred. Personality (Sun), emotions (Moon) and creative self-expression (Venus) all cry out for that "White Glove" treatment right now.


Mercury is a Planet that does "Double Duty" in the Zodiac. Ruler of both Gemini (Mutable Air) and Virgo (Mutable Earth), Mercury is the energy that facilitates communication. During Elul, we blow the Shofar every morning to COMMUNICATE - to our own souls and to the world around us - that Rosh HaShanah - the annual "Day of Judgement" of the World - approaches only a month from now. 


It's a time to communicate - with our own souls, with our Creator - Who is especially available now, more than ever. It's said of Elul - "The King is in the Field," that is to say, He is accessible, on our level, He has left His palace and is wandering through "the Field" (the world where we live), where we can see, touch and cling to Him in love during this time - before Rosh HaShannah, where we will crown Him KING - in all His glory. 

During Virgo / Elul, we "sift." Let's remove all the impediments to closeness between ourselves and HaShem, by removing those things that are no longer useful.


It's one thing to meet the King in the Field - another to see Him "all high and lifted up" upon a glorious throne. Virgo - Elul - is the time where He is close, and THE PLACE WHERE HE IS CLOSE is where Virgo / Elul falls in your Personal Natal Chart.

The idea that 'The king is in the field during Elul' is a novelty of the Ba'al Hatanya, see Likkutei Torah, Re’eh 32b. It is not mentioned in the teachings of the Bal Shemtov, or anywhere else prior.
