New Moon In Virgo

New Moon In Virgo on Sunday, August 28th. Whew – a bit of grounding amongst all of this other silliness that is going on astrologically! Virgo – the little organizer in life! Just what do you need to get organized? This is a really, really good time to do it! This is the time to analyze, to use that little critical thinking ability of yours. Focus on the day-to-day of life – this is where you can make the biggest impression right now.

The Virgo New Moon is also a good time to set goals that focus on Virgo energy – you might want to start a new project (especially good if this is an intricate, detail oriented project), start making a list of things that need to be done around the house (we are about to change seasons, and enter into Fall).

Don’t forget yourself – what do you need to do for you? How can you create a healthier, happier life? Where is your joy? What can you do to make your life flow better? Step out of your comfort zone – take out that big dream, dust it off, and act on it!

The changes that you can make at this time are only limited by your ability to envision them in your mind. This is the time to attend to the little details – to take care of the earthy, practical phases of life. Do this, and your stress level will go down!

New Moon In Virgo Reading

Three of Swords

There is a very gentle rain going on outside – nicely conducive to doing a New Moon reading! This New Moon is in Virgo, focusing on introspection, patience, and the how and why of what we are manifesting. This is a time of moving past limiting beliefs from the past and bringing Mind/Body/Spirit into alignment. Virgo asks us to see the truth in a situation – even when it hurts! We can only pretend for so long – then we need to own our thoughts, own our actions, and own that we are co-creators of our own life.

Deck used: “Sun and Moon Tarot” (Vanessa Decort, U.S. Games Systems, Inc.)

  1. What actions do I need to take to become more self-aware? – Nine of Pentacles
  2. How can I best connect with my emotional self? – Seven of Wands
  3. How can I best connect to, and express, my creative (spiritual) self? – Three of Swords

To become more self aware, I need to pay closer attention to what success means to me. What in the material world reflects my idea of success? What do I need to have to feel successful? What choices have brought success to me? What sense of confidence has success brought to me? I need to honor the success that is already there.

To connect with my emotional self, I need to accept the battles of life, give my best, and honor my “wins”. Conflict helps me to focus, and to move past stagnation and depression. Conflict literally “gets my blood up”! Conflict can make me feel alive. The caveat here – not to become so involved in conflict that I can’t see past it.

To connect to my creative self, I need to allow myself to acknowledge the pain that can be in life, and move through it. I need to use this pain to transform myself.
