New Moon in Virgo
Updated: Sep 7
A Happy New Year 5781 to all my Jewish friends! Rosh Hashanah, the new year, always occurs on a New Moon, on the first day of Tishrei, which is the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar, and falls in September or October.
Today’s New Moon at 14º Virgo at 5:52pm PT will bring changes. The New Moon will be in an exact trine to Uranus in Taurus and Uranus is the planet of surprises and shocks. On the world stage, we can expect surprising if not shocking news and while it may very well be health-related (vaccines/pandemic), I think we will hear something unexpected about a prominent woman leader or influencer and women’s rights will continue to make the headlines this coming week (Venus square Pluto).
Closer to home, we can all expect a surprise or AHA! Moment. With Uranus, it’s impossible to tell if the surprise or shock is going to be immediately welcome but what I can say with some certainty is that the purpose of this surprising event, information or new insight is to Turn Us Back On.
Uranus wakes us up.
If you have allowed your light to be dimmed way down so that you’re barely a flicker the cosmic energies are determined to help you turn up your inner flame and begin anew.
It’s worth remembering that we are still experiencing a Mars-Neptune opposition, although the aspect is waning. Last week was tough for most people. Hopefully you made time to relax and recharge over this long weekend. Virgo is the sign associated with wellbeing and service. It is also the sign of precision and meticulous detail. Today’s New Moon in Mercury-ruled Virgo, asks us to move forward only with the qualities that support the vision of the person you are becoming. Be picky!
The Sun-Moon trine Uranus aspect asks us to reconnect with our inner fire. What is this inner fire? It’s the desires and erotic urges that you keep squashing down (Venus square Pluto). You are tasked with waking up to the fact that you are here to have a human experience and as such must learn to embrace the messiness that comes with being human.
Cease trying to work everything out with your
mind. It will get you nowhere. Live by intuition
and inspiration and let your whole life be Revelation.
This is a call to accept your divine and perfect body. Society would like you to think you are physically flawed so you will keep buying stuff you don’t need but the truth is you don’t need anything outside yourself to embody your genius. You are remarkable not in spite of, but because you are human.
Venus-Pluto caution against overspending. This is not a good week for applying for loans or impulse buying.
A fresh start! This is your time to shine!
This New Moon ushers in a month of reflection and contemplation. You may decide to start therapy, take up meditation or journaling.
You’ll probably be socializing more than usual this month and your friends will take precedence.
Expect the higher-ups to notice you at work. A great time to promote your ideas and show your work.
You may decide to return to school, start a new course, decide on a new spiritual path or travel abroad.
Esoteric subjects like astrology will be your focus this coming month. Money matters will require your attention (loans, inheritance).
Other people will have your full attention this month. If you are in a relationship, expect a new surprise development. If you are looking, you may meet someone special under surprising circumstances.
Your health will be your primary focus this month, possibly in a surprising and unexpected way. Take care and remember to make time for rest. Excellent time for you to start a new health regimen or create a new daily routine.
You may decide to explore your creativity or a favourite hobby will occupy more of your time. Children are highlighted so you may hear surprising news.
Home matters will require your attention. You may hear something surprising regarding a parent/parents or lineage.
This New Moon lights up your communication sector. Write, speak, teach. Share your work with the world.
Expect news regarding your income. You may also find yourself taking on more responsibilities at work.
