Our New Moon in Virgo crests on the 20th of the month at 12:30 AM EST (add one hour for DST), at 27 degrees of the sign. I like the New Moon in Virgo as it seems to be able to rid us of the past few months clutter. Virgo so loves order and neatness, that it is almost impossible not to find a project that we have been putting off — whether finding warmer clothes for the coming cooler weather, or just getting rid of the beach towels and Summer toys that are in the garage! Summertime can make us a little lackadaisical, and we put off those bothersome chores that come with the changing of the season. So we can indeed find ourselves picking up the renewed vigor from the Universe, that will re-energize us in getting to those tasks that when cleaned up will make us feel lighter and more free.
In fact there is a lot of major Planetary energy going around this month for us to choose from — now that the North Node is in Leo, it is complementary to both Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries giving us a Fiery boost both mentally and physically! Working within the Planetary dynamism can and will allow us to get the most bang-for-the- buck in tackling those onerous jobs we have been dreading. Tune in to the lavish gifts that the Universe is providing to us, and find your true inner bliss!
Our tiny dynamo Pluto will be turning Direct on the 28th allowing its more positive spirit into our realm — dust off those delayed plans and find a new way to refine them, in order for you to be able to make them work. Still have anger or resentment issues with a family member, take a new look at what’s really been going on — perhaps you are more frustrated with your own lack of forward motion. Relax a little, and give yourself and your loved ones the benefit of the doubt. Everyone is trying their best — but life has a way of putting a spanner in the works no matter how hard we seem to try to get it right! Remember we are all human-BEings and none of us is perfect.
Along with Mercury now in forward motion, we can somewhat safely make plans that have the possibility of coming to fruition. And the Autumnal Equinox on the 22nd can bring another breath of fresh air into our lives. With the Sun entering Libra we mark another Season of change, from seed, to growth, to harvest — our lives have an ancient rhythm that is instilled into our DNA. We all are captive to the timing of the Seasons as the months quickly pass by, and we must bow to the primordial cadence, that is the Earth’s harmony and music in accordance with the eternal heartbeat of the Universe.
With our New Moon in Virgo, things of a practical and useful nature are in the forefront — Virgo doesn’t like waste or superfluous meandering — no, Virgo wants definite plans, practical solutions and the sooner the better! So — when thinking of your affirmations and requests to write under the auspices of the New Moon’s energy, be succinct, practical and concise. With Virgo details are important — but not too many — brief but comprehensive will be the best way to express yourself. Perhaps not as easy as it sounds — sorry!
Virgo wants sensible and easily understood affirmations — especially about personal needs and/or desires. Desperately need a new job/raise/promotion — now is the time to be clear in your intentions. Home need upgrading — put your most practical ideas down on paper and “see” those improvements as if already finished. Need more organization, vision, tenacity, better health habits, stamina in your life — the New Moon in Virgo can help. Think about what would truly improve your life right now and write out your affirmations, desires, and wishes on paper. Feel your own energy blending with the mastery of the Universal flow and be one with the basic elements and origins of life.
Our New Moon in Virgo crests at 2:30 AM EST (add one hour for DST), as this is the last aspect before the Moon enters Libra, we have a Moon Void of Course condition. A Moon Void of Course time period lasts until the Moon enters the next sign — when this is in play, there is confusion, and misperception — our plans fail to come to fruition, and we cannot seem to get anywhere. So, although the best time to write out our affirmations is usually within a couple of hours of the New Moon cresting — I am strongly suggesting that we wait until the Moon has entered Libra at 5:06 AM EST (plus one for DST) before writing out our affirmations. So all day after the Moon enters Libra will be fine for writing down our lists.
Actually the timing may be perfect except for those few night-owls who would ordinarily be happy to write our their lists in the wee hours of the morning. For most of us the daytime is much preferred — good luck in reaching your most ardent wishes.
