NEW MOON IN VIRGO- HOW YOU CAN MAKE THE MOST OF THE LUNAR POSITION
As with all new moons, today’s new moon in Virgo represents the beginning of a new life cycle. Though this new moon affects all 12 signs of the zodiac, it particularly affects those born under the signs of Virgo and Pisces, with those born in the signs of Sagittarius and Gemini in close tow. These four zodiac signs fall under the ‘mutable’ category of the zodiac. Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius are all present at the end of each season; meaning that they are associated with a major transition. Therefore, this new moon has the significant power to engulf us in a massive personal shift.
This new moon is the beginning of the season of harvest. In addition to the harvesting of crops, this is the origin of the time of year when we can begin to reap the budding life that we have planted and sewn over the spring and summer. This is the time of year when we are able to begin to feed on the personal and spiritual nourishment that we have, alongside Spirit, created for ourselves. It is a time to bask in the glory of our successes, as it is almost time to celebrate the fall equinox; a time to dance and be grateful for the beautiful gifts that we have been granted. This two week period between the New Moon in Virgo and the Fall Equinox are a time of celebration and preparation for the oncoming season.
Perfectionist Virgo will have us tying up loose ends during this 48 hour lunar period. These loose ends can be anything from phone calls to details of personal health and nutrition. With this Virgo themed moon, research will be on the forefront of our minds. Any issues in question that pertain to health, nutrition or other personal interests will be the highlight of the day and the desire to research relative information will be strong and focused. Virgo’s practical side will bless us with a grounded mind while wading through the various projects and details that we had previously cast aside during the unstable energies of the summer months. This new moon is the ideal opportunity to refocus our efforts on the completion of tasks that had gone astray.
Highlighted by the Virgo energy will be the necessitation of creating boundaries. Because of the practical-minded Virgo, we may be inspired to acknowledge the aspects of our personal relationships that are out of balance. Perhaps we will realize that we are giving too much energy to a cause that cannot reciprocate in the way that we need. It is the energy of this new moon that has the ability to empower us to create that boundary for ourselves so that we do not continue to deplete our energy source.
On the other hand, this new moon is a time to be cautious of our over-critical nature. We could find, during this time that we tend to over-analyze ourselves and our lives (even more than usual!). Though it’s important to take stock of our lives, there is a danger in overdoing it. This danger is a compulsive need to control and micromanage all aspects of our lives. While it’s important to have a solid grasp on the ins and outs of our daily lives, we must remember the value in letting go of control. When we release control, we allow miracles to shine through. These miracles almost always tend to work out in blessings we had never even dreamed of.
We must remember that all efforts to create the harmony that we desire are a tandem effort between us and Spirit. By relinquishing control to Spirit we will find the peace we seek. By placing our faith in that which exists outside of our minds and in our hearts, we will be acting out of love. We will be creating from the heart in conjunction with the aspect of ourselves that exists in Spirit; or highest selves. And we will know that when we do this, only love and positivity are born.
