The moon governs security issues and your feelings of emotional safety.
At this Virgo new moon your emotional security is all about clarity and order. You may feel a natural impulse arise to organize (or get rid of) anything and everything that feels out of place. Anything chaotic, or that give rise to confusion, may be on the chopping block for elimination.
Virgo is the original healer of the zodiac. Many astrologers are now assigning Chiron (the wounded healer) as a co-ruler of Virgo, along with Mercury (the magician and planet of communications and means of connecting). Because Mercury rules the everyday ‘conscious’ mind you may experience more mental chatter than usual at the Virgo new moon.
However, health will be uppermost on your mind and more ‘healthy communications’ are highlighted. You may find yourself initiating new routines that promote a healthier lifestyle, as well as letting go of anything that may impede ‘healthy ways of communicating.’
Because Virgos are perfectionists at heart, and take a logical, practical, and systematic approach to life, you may now feel an intense urge to make improvements, at least in the area of your life where Virgo is located in your natal chart.
Look in your personal astrology chart to find out what house the Virgo new moon is occurring. This is where you’ll feel these new impulses for making improvements, or see signs that things are naturally improving.
The Virgo new moon may give you the courage to improve and brush up on skills that you have let go to waste. Now is also the perfect time to begin a new health regime. Any new health habits you start now are more likely to ‘stick’ for the long term as the Virgo new moon instills you with the fortitude to follow through. Diligence and consistent practice are hallmarks of Virgo.
Because Virgo is so picky you may feel yourself losing patience with someone, or something in your life. So, at the Virgo new moon you have an opportunity to exercise patience with yourself and others and develop more tolerance and acceptance for life’s imperfections.
The Virgo new moon is the perfect time to let go of anything that’s bothering you and surrender to life. Trust life and allow it to run its natural course. Life has a way of working out for the best for all concerned.
We all know that damming things up and trying to force the natural course of events for the ‘river of life' to flow in doesn’t work out in the long term. We also know that suppressing and manipulating natural forces can have very detrimental effects for ourselves and others.
Life is not here to fulfill your expectations of how things should go.
The Virgo new moon is the perfect time to allow a little serendipity to work magic for you.
Affirmation: “Life is happening for me and unfolds perfectly.”
The Virgo New Moon Conjunct the Sun is Trine to Uranus Rx (the planet of revolution and chaos). Uranus adds an explosive and revolutionary spin to Virgo’s natural trait of perfectionism. Virgo may feel inspired to go to greater lengths than usual to bring order out of the chaos.
Except for an inconjunct occurring between Mars in Virgo and Jupiter in Aquarius, all the planetary aspects happening today are very harmonious, supportive and auspicious. The inconjunct can lend a tendency to a bit of irritation thrown into the celestial mix of energies occurring now. So patience is advised. Slow and methodical, rather than impulsive wins the day!
Mars in Virgo Trine to Pluto Rx in Capricorn - This omens tremendous energy being unleashed for a deep cleansing and reorganization of structures and routines.
Venus in Libra Trine to Jupiter Rx in Aquarius - Signals love in relationships getting expanded in new, more visionary ways. There can be some kinkiness in the bedroom. More future oriented contracts and agreements can get a boost.
