The new moon in Virgo occurs on September 6th/7th and is going to be a great time to plant the seeds for the future and lay foundations. Virgo energy asks us to focus on our daily routines, health and career. We have some potent and chaotic energies at this new moon with an opposition between Mars and Neptune, the Sun and Neptune, Chiron and Mercury and the Moon and Jupiter which will ask us to focus our energy internally, diving into the receptive yin aspects that is Virgo instead of a reactive energy. You can find the video going into more detail about these aspects here.
With the volatile energies surrounding us throughout September (check out the monthly astrology overview here) It is the perfect time to pause and reflect and truly review what foundations you want to lay for your future. Detail orientated Virgo asks us to plan the steps but not get too bogged down with the critical side of things – if you are focusing on the flaws and faults without a proactive movement then you are focused on the wrong things for this moon.
We will feel the need to move forward, take action and jump ahead to the future goals but this new moon is calling us to come back to the mundane and remember that it is with each brick laid that the house can be built. This is the time to break down those future plans into an easy to navigate routine moving forward – a special interest in things that connect to our health and finanical situations as this is the perfect time to intitiate something new.
This month will be our peak month of 7 planets retrograde and this new moon is ushering in that energy, calling in the hermit mode – it is no coincidence that the hermit card is the card of Virgo in the tarot. We are needing to focus on our inner flame now, journey into the self to discover what we truly want – are we doing things out of habit and they are no longer in alignment with what we truly wish to achieve.
As Virgo rules the 6th house in astrology, this is the energy of the in between – the balance between the spiritual and the physical and we are asked to reflect on where we need to restore balance in our life within these aspects. Starting a new spiritual routine that is in alignment with your desires is perfect for this moon. This is a time to come into acceptance of who you are right now but also set in motion the plans and goals for who you would like to become.
Be careful this moon of becoming too critical of yourself and others, anxiety may be heightened and blunt communication may be taken the wrong way and cause more conflict than expected. Spring clean your environments to refresh the energy and cleanse your own aura to keep emotions stable. Happy new moon x
